You can blame it on Louis Vuitton or Dolce & Gabbana for bringing back the 1950's midi skirts. The  calf grazing lady like skirts are chic and sophisticated. They made their official come back during Fall and have now transferred over into the spring season. We love the versatility of the this style for plus size curvy girls because it comes in a variety of shapes. You can go for an A-line cut, a pencil style, or an all out full skirt. You can glam it up with sexy sky high heels or keep it simple with feminine flats and a tank. We can imagine ourselves wearing this with a straw fedora, wedges and a cropped jacket for those breezy spring days.

Tell us how would you rock this skirt?

Here's a few of SC's picks:


New Look

For the fashion fearless

The shop like a fashion editor challenge is proving to be quite challenging. I've already gone over my $100 budget for the month. I'm so use to just buying without any thought process. When I see something I like I just buy it. Now, I have to make very wise decisions because I know I'm working with limited funds. Yesterday, I was all ready to hit up the Lord and Taylor shoe sale and I had to stop myself because I knew I would have left with more than one pair which could have blown my $400 budget. Instead I decided to think about the strategy I had for creating the spring wardrobe that I wanted. I was glad I had the power to stop myself.

This challenge is teaching me to be more particular when it comes to shopping. Being choosy about my purchases allows me to be creative with my wardrobe and infuse it with pieces that will make it unique as well as timeless. Having a plan is great too because it allows you to get the most out of the pieces you already own.

For March I wanted to incorporate trendy pieces as well as printed pieces. My eye is naturally drawn to leopard print and stripes so I figured the striped Faith 21 dress (sold out online) would go well with a cropped jacket and heels and the Loft floral print flutter sleeve dress is perfect for work and church. I'm looking forward to rocking the Norma Kamali leopard print sheath dress with a sleeveless draped vest and wide belt. City Chic's animal print harem pants fit very well and are a fun trendy piece to wear on the weekends. The Forever 21 leaf earrings and H&M straw fedora will be personal touches to other pieces in my wardrobe.

Check back on April 1st to see what looks and trends I will be looking to add.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It looks like Old Navy has celebrities hooked again on one of their pieces. Last fall we saw celebs like Kristin Cavalari sporting Old Navy's red ruffle front wool coat and now for spring celebs like La La Vasquez and Carmen Elektra are rocking one of their new floral ruffled front chiffon dresses. We must say that this dress is super cute and flattering for a variety of complexions. Rock it with a denim jacket or spring leather in camel and no one would even guess that you got this dress from Old Navy.

The dress goes up to a size XXL and it comes in yellow and black. The best thing about it is that it's only $34.50. Get it HERE

Outfit Idea
Hey curvy girls all over the world, There were tons of events over the weekend that brought out some of our favorite curvy celebs. Let's checkout who was working it and who was, well, NOT.

Grey's Anatomy star Sara Ramirez was spotted at the Broadway debut of How To Succeed in business without really trying. It was nice to see Sara all dolled up and looking cute in a black one shoulder layered ruffled dress.

I know some die hard J Hud fans miss her bountiful curves, but you must admit that her style has improved to the 10th power. Although she lost a lot of weight, this outfit shows that Jennifer still has her curves. The only issue with this look is that it seems like she's missing her shirt. The bustier style corset looks more like an all in one girdle rather than a sexy top. What do you think?

Niecey Nash wore a pink and black printed wrap dress with black t-strap shoes. While I'm loving the color and overall look of the dress, I'm not too fond of the print. What do you think?

The lovely Chrisette Michelle rocks a cute casual look and shows off a new wild and bold do. Are you feeling her new look?

Former Huge star Hayley Hasselhoff was spotted at the premiere of HOP in a printed top, tan skirt, and orange belt.  Is she working this look?

Which curvy celebrity had the best look?


Here on SC we like to do our part in spotlighting young curvy women in the entertainment industry.

This month our eyes are on Sianoa Smit-McPhee. This gorgeous Australian curvy girl plays on the HBO series Hung. Hung is about a divorced father of two who's house burned down and he becomes a mail prostitute to make ends meet. Sianoa plays Darby Drecker an angry teen who goes through the motions of being a teenager like falling in and out love and trying to get her self absorbed parents to pay attention to her needs.
Sianoa is fairly new to the world of Hollywood, as an Australian actress she first gained notoriety on an Australian soap called Neighbours. From doing soaps in Australia Sianoa came to the U.S. and has played minor roles in a number of TV shows. In the finicky world of Hollywood we know how hard it can be for actresses to get work, let alone an actress with a little meet on her bones. So, we're glad that Sinoa has an opportunity to show off her acting skills.

We can't wait to see more from this curvy girl when Hung returns for a 3rd season.

Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson gets all spring like on the cover of Heart & Souls April issue. Chandra wore an electric pink ruffled frock by Donna Morgan for the cover shot. We're all big fans of  the actress and love that the show allows this curvy girl to get all the cute guys. It's also always nice to see a fellow curvy girl snag the cover

Is she working her cover look?

 Fellow curvy girl Adele rocks out in violet makeup for a beauty feature in the April issue of Instyle magazine. Makeup artist Maxine Leonard highlighted Adele's beautiful big eyes with purple shadows from Lancome and violet lips from MAC. The 21 year old singer who is also riding high on billboard with a #1 album was styled by Brad Goreski. Yes, Brad Goreski from the Rachel Zoe reality show. Brad styled Adele in a sequin top by Dries Van Noten, a yellow Michael Kors silk jersey dress, and a Louis Vuitton cotton blouse. She was also draped in beautiful jeweled encrusted earrings ranging from jewelry designers Swarovski to Van Cleef and Arpels. While Adele looks angelic and beautiful in this feature, I would have loved if they showed full body shots of the clothes she was styled in. Maybe next time she can be in a curvy girl style feature. Just a thought.

Nevertheless, she looks gorgeous in this feature.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Since spring has officially sprung SC thought we would put together a mini guide to the season's hottest denim for plus sizes. Here at SC we love our skinny jeans, but, this season we wanted to gives these denim styles a try.

White Denim

Listen up curvy girls, don't listen to the wacky rule that plus size women shouldn't wear white jeans. Go ahead and scoop you up a pear of crisp white jeans to keep you cool and looking good for the spring/summer seasons.

Here's a few more options for you:

The High Waisted Jean

While a few curvy celebrities have been negatively blasted for rocking this trendy denim look, SC still believes that this style can work for plus size curvy girls. You just have to find the right cut for your shape. High waisted jeans can be great for masking or holding in a pooch.

Here's a few more options for you:

Distressed Denim

Whether you want to pay for ripped jeans or make it a DIY project, we guarantee you won't regret it. For those of you who have the boring denim blues distressed denim is a great option to spice up your denim wardrobe. Pair this with a cool tee and killer heels for a rocker chic look.

Here's a few more options:

Peg Leg & Boyfriend Jeans
ASOS                                                       Dorothy Perkins

The pleated peg leg jean is slowly becoming a popular trend. We like to call it the feminine version of the boyfriend jean. It's sleeker through the leg, but pleated at the waist, which can be tricky for apple shapes. This is the kind of denim trend that requires trial an error. You must try on a few to find the right one for you.

Here's a few more options:

Fellow curvy girl and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks made me do a double take when I spotted a photo of her at Muhammad Ali's celebrity fight night in a black body con dress with a sheer lace front. Jordin's style has always been girl next door by wearing cute flirty dresses and trendy jeans with cute tops and blazers. Between the ending of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 Jordin has been gradually upping her style factor with body con dresses showing off her fab shape. Almost a year ago she was seen at a charity event (above picture) rocking a blazer and skinny jeans with a striped draped neck top.

Just take a look at some of her best looks during the month of February.

At Muhammad Ali's celebrity fight night this month.

All I have to say is, Work it MS. Sparks!

What do you think of Jordin's new look?
