Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Today's Stylish Curves of The Day is Ashley. When it comes to embracing her curves, here's what she had to say,

 "I embrace my curves by not being afraid to stand out!

 I'm a fashion addict who isn't afraid to walk into ANY store and find something for me, I call myself the hunter of plus size fashion as in Australia we have a only a handful of stores catering for larger sizes!

Thanks Ashley for submitting. You have such a nice variety of looks. My fave is the leopard top, white blazer, and red skinny's.

Ashley also has a blog called "Ashley Rose."

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
While we can't get plus size collaborations at main stream giant stores like Target and H&M, every now and again we get our own little plus size collabo's from UK plus size retailers and they actually turn out pretty good. Remember Beth Ditto for Evans? Well, Evan's in keeping up the momentum. In the month of April, husband and wife design duo Clements Ribeiro will release a plus size collection at Evans. The collection promises to deliver quality fabrics, structured designs, flattering details, and on trend styles. It will read both sexy and feminine. Clements Ribeiro has never designed for plus size women and wanted to make this special collection to give plus size women what they've been missing in fashion.

We can expect to see vibrant colors, non traditional prints for plus sizes, and a a sex appeal that every woman possesses. According to UK's Daily Mail, the designers used a size 22 fit model and paid close attention to how the clothes looked on the larger parts of plus size women. They designed dresses with sleeves and made enough room in the bust area for a comfortable fit.

To get an idea of what their clothes will look like on plus size women you can refer back to Adele at the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2011 at Grosvenor House. She wore one of their black lace dresses.

The collection is expected to drop on March 31st on and at For all my UK readers you can actually go in store to see the collection on April 1st.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
You know I am a sucker for classic sophisticated styles with a dash of trendy. There's just something about an article of clothing that is designed to flatter your shape without compromising style. Well, after doing a little Internet browsing I came across four totally dashing Calvin Klein dresses that are on trend and will have you commanding attention whether you're at the office or hanging out with your girls.

For the past 3 years Calvin Klein has been improving upon their plus size designs. Now, don't get me wrong, the plus size designs are no match when compared to their misses styles, but there has been some major improvement nonetheless. The brand branched out from typical black and dark brown dresses and opted for colorblocked styles, exposed zipper details, and gasp, bright color.

These four dresses are what I like to call double duty dresses. By just swapping accessories these dresses are perfect for work and for cocktails after work.They are all priced under $150 an since it's Calvin Klein, you know the quality is well worth it. You can get them at Bloomingdales

Take a look and tell me what you think:

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It has finally happened. You can now get your Monif C. fix at Nordstrom's. Yes! Monif C. is a house hold name amongst plus size women. Her signature jersey Marilyn convertible dresses have kept her in business for over 6 years and her business savvy has gotten her featured in Crains, Essence, Black Enterprise, and a host of other magazines.

Being sold in department stores is the dream of countless independent designers and I am glad that this is happening for Monif C.  Monif C. will be part of Nordtrom's Encore department which is the place to go for plus size contemporary styles. Currently the website is carrying two the convertible dresses at price from $215-$235. The site also includes a signature Monif C. instructional video on the myriad of ways to tie the convertible.

Be sure to follow Monif C.  on Twitter and Facebook to send your congrats.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We are starting this week off with another Stylish Curvy girl. It looks like the south is representing again because today's stylish curvy girl is Christian-Joy from South Florida. When it comes to embracing her curves here's what she had to say:

I like to think of myself as the "Rustic Diva". I just recently started really "dressing" after a significant weight loss so I'm still new to the whole diva part of that title.
Now that I can fit a lot of the types of clothes that I've wanted to purchase for awhile, I'm starting to embrace how I look in them.

I'm in my late 20s and for the first time I am finally beginning to feel secure in my skin and I'm finding that this new found confidence is drawing people to me like moths to a flame.

 I'm falling in love with fashion for the first time in my life and I'm looking to be more daring with prints & color choices which is big part of the reason why I follow this blog, for inspiration!

Thanks Christian-Joy for submitting your pics. That strapless paisley print dress is uber cute and chic. What do you guys think of Christian-Joy's style?

If youw ould like to be featured as Stylish Curves of The Day, please send in 3-6 full length pictures of your best looks with a blurb about where you're from and how you embrace your curves to

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Looks like some of our favorite curvy and plus size celebrity's were out and about this weekend. Let's take a look at who was working it.

Fellow curvy girl and Reebok RealFlex spokesperson Jordin Sparks was  spotted at Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night XIII in a leopard print Kevin Hall dress looking sophisticated and chic with her hair pulled back.

Next up we have SC fave Amber Riley who is showcasing her new slimmed down figure. Amber was getting her biker chick on at  Perez Hilton’s Mad Hatter tea party birthday celebration. Normally Amber opts for feminine dresses and this time she shook things up by donning a sequin corset top, black leather jacket, and biker boots to match. Two snaps for Amber going for a different look.

Queen Latifah can never do wrong in my eyes. She is one plus size ride or die chick that always looks her best at an event. In true Latifah fashion she rocked a body con one shoulder sequin knee length dress to the The Blacks’ Annual Gala. Always the lady, isn't she?

Last and surely not least is Christina Hendricks. Now Christina can be either a hit or a miss when it comes to her style. The uber curvy actress wore a frilly feminine black and beige top with a floor length chiffon pleated skirt to a Mad Men AMC event. I'm on the fence about the look, how about you?

Ok, that's it for SC's curvy celebrity spotting. Which celebrity look is your fave?

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We are kicking off this bright and sunny Monday morning with celebrity style for plus size curves. Actress Malin Akerman was spotted rocking a little red hot sexy dress from Halston Heritage at the Restoration Hardware's spring launch. Malin's style is always simple yet sexy and this look is no different. Malin kept the look pretty basic with nude pumps and an oversized clutch. The off the shoulder dress is subtly sexy and leaves a lot to the imagination.

I have to keep it real and say that this is not the best fit for Malin so SC is going to show you how a curvy girl can pull this look off. For the girl with curves, Torrid makes an amazing look-a-like dress with a black skinny belt. The saucy red number will have men falling at your feet. Retro dresses are becoming a popular trend with their longer hemlines and body skimming silhouettes. Doesn't this look remind you of Wanda from the 1990 Johnny Depp movie "Cry Baby?" All you need is a little neck tie and a cropped leather jacket.
