Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When I don't want summer to end, I make sure I wear as many summer pieces as I can before that fall weather hits. We are in the last days of summer and I am going to make sure I enjoy it to the fullest, with style of course.Today's office look was all about bright colored geometric prints. I love shaking my week up with fun prints for the office.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We just got our hands on a few pieces from plus size brand LALA Belle's spring 2012 collection. I know, I know,  we are gearing up for fall but down under in Australia, they're gearing up for the spring season. LALA Belle is a budding Australian brand that makes luxury plus size clothes. They have a good eye for detail and creating pieces with impeccable cuts.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The Monif C. fall collection has been revealed and it's trendy and sexy. What else did you expect from one of plus size women's favorite designers? After a super sexy curve hugging spring collection, Monif C. has come back with a fall line that is all about embracing the trends. This season she produced a series of colorful colorblocked Marilyn dresses and played around with the exposed shoulder and high/low hem trends. She even added a few vampire-esque details like a high ruffled neck collared dress and a ruched batwing dress. 

The new fall collection is available for pre-order now and will ship this October. Get your bids in quick because Monif C. does sell out quickly. Visit the Monif C website HERE

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A few weeks ago I was introduced to the fashion side of Avon. Now, I pride myself on being in the know when it comes to anything fashion related whether its plus or standard sizes. However, my fashion radar must be having technical difficulties because I did not know that Avon the iconic beauty brand sold apparel, footwear, and accessories. Avon's fashion department hosts a bevy of classic cut dresses, tops, handbags and footwear. While the accessories and footwear selection is skimpy to say the least, the clothing, surprisingly is pretty alright. There are no groundbreaking styles but there were a few pieces that made you look twice, like a black and blue colorblocked dress, a faux wrap printed dress, and faux fur vest.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I know its been a minute since my last outfit post but it was just getting too hot and it is extremely time consuming trying to snap pictures when sweat is beading down your face.
I've been posting a lot of my looks on Instagram. Luckily this weekend was pretty breezy so I was able to fit a proper outfit post in.

 I got this dress from the H&M plus section a few weeks ago. It is an over-sized  dress that I thought was kind of cute. The lace detail is what drew me to it. 

I've been wearing it at least once a week since I bought it because it is very comfortable, especially after a hearty meal. I normally wear it without a belt but today I decided to add some shape to it with a black patent skinny belt.

I've also been wearing flats with this dress but decided to dress it up a little with a pair of lace peep toe heels from Betsey Johnson. 

This weekend was filled with activities for me and my son so I had to utilize  my work bag to hold snacks, wipes, my flats, and a toy for the train ride.

This is a really cute dress from the H&M plus collection and its simple but the interest is all in the lace detailing. Checkout the exposed zipper in the back. Cute, right?!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Also follow me on Instagram under Stylishcurves to see more of my everyday looks.

What I'm Wearing
Dress: H&M +
Shoes: Betsey Johnson
Earrings: H&M
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Loft
Bag: Aldo
Sunnies: H&M

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies, 
Fall is knocking at our doors. It's time to start thinking about what trends you want to add to your wardrobe. Jewel color accessories will be a big trend for the fall and winter seasons. If you're one of those ladies that are afraid to wear bold colors, start slow. Purchase a colorful bag, scarf, or shoes until you are ready to wear a colorful top or jacket.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Word on the street this morning is the Kardashian Klan is taking a full dive into the plus size fashion arena and it's about time. After announcing their new plus size denim line they are also set to launch a full fledged plus size line at Sears. At SC we are big fans of the Kardashian girls and frequently feature Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney in our celebrity style for curves features (see here).

If you love the way the Kardashian's dress then this is your opportunity to snag a piece of their individual styles. The new Sears collection will offer a variety of ready to wear pieces which will include, dresses, jackets, tops, and pants. The price range will be from $68-$110 and is planned to hit Sears stores in October.

I am definitely a little excited to see what the girls come up with for plus sizes. My fingers are crossed that they will actually use plus size models for the campaigns and that the quality and cuts will truly be designed for plus size women. Meaning, I hope the size 18 doesn't fit like a 14. Hopefully they've done their homework.

Say what you want, but these girls have a head for business and their styles are easy for everyday girls to relate to. The only view of the collection that we can get is a few sketches.

What do you think about the sketches of some of the designs. I already love the blazer and skater dress. What about you?

Hey curvy girls all over the world, 
We are kicking off this Tuesday morning with Stylish Curves of the day. Kelly is representing curvy girls in NYC. When it comes to embracing her curves, here's what she had to say:

Monday, August 20, 2012

Today I'm not going to greet you with my signature saying, "Hey curvy girls all over the world," because today's post is for all the seasoned and upcoming bloggers who actually enjoy blogging but may be feeling a bit discouraged about continuing with blogging because they're not considered a top tier blogger or a famous blogger. At this point, I very much consider blogging like the music industry, filled with talented artists who are just waiting to get their shot and shine. I look at each post as the equivalent of creating a single. Some posts are instant and major hits and can get you the press and exposure to sky rocket your blogging career and some posts will just get you local community buzz and other posts which are good will just get lost.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Before last week, I would have scarfed at the idea of a chain print anything. Not to sound redundant but my prints of choice are leopard, polka dots, and stripes. However, my views of trying a chain printed anything changed when I received a little gift from Redress, see outfit post (HERE).

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last night while doing a  little shopping, I spotted this super cute girl headed into Forever21. I had to stop her and get a pic of her outfit. I would be lying if I didn't say that her leopard print top is what caught my eye first. Then I saw her big chunky chain link necklace and heart printed fishnet tights. She topped off her look  with a blue hat and pointed toe flats.

 I thought her look was young and fun. What do you think?

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For those of you who didn't catch my post this week, I wanted to let you know that Stylish Curves of the day has been extended to Tumblr. Yup, now you can submit your cute everyday looks to our Tumblr page. I know many of you find it a bit time consuming to gather your best looks and then write a paragraph about your style and then have to submit them to the blog, so for you lazy gals :), now you can submit just one look to the Tumblr page. If you have a cute outfit on today submit your pic to the Tumblr. Here's the link

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This week some of our favorite curvy and plus size celebrities were spotted on the red carpet for the Sparkle premiere. Let's take a look at who was working it:
Jordin Sparks looked fabulous in a red peplum fitted dress and red pointed toe pumps. Now, I would have nixed the red closed toe pumps and went for ankle strap peeptoe or a contrasting colored shoe.

Gabourey Sidibe opted for a dark purple aka eggplant banded waist dress with leopard print flats.

Queen Latifah was spotted at a CW event in a laid back casual look that included a black, white, and yellow color contrasting top, studded bag, and black slim fit jeans with boots.

Who's look were you feeling the most?

 Hey there stylish curvy ladies!
Hoping you all are having a great week.

Every woman must have at least one leopard print accessory in their wardrobe.
Leopard print is a great way to make any simple outfit pop. For example: It's dress down Friday and you are tired of thinking about what to wear to work. Pair a simple button down shirt, skinny jeans with a pointy pair of leopard flats. You have a sexy date night with your beau. Wear a simple body con dress, your favorite red lipstick and a pair of leopard pumps.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
From J. Lo to Kim Kardashian the thigh high split is a head turning trend you just may want to try. Just don't do a mini with a thigh high split in my opinion,you don't want to send out the wrong message. Whether your style is casual, sophisticated, girly, or tom boyish, every girl can appreciate showing a little leg once in awhile, right?!
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
These photos were taken back in June and were sitting in my drafts folder. I meant to post them but I probably got side tracked. Nevertheless, I'm posting it now.
I am a really big fan of the cut out shoulder trend. There is something so sexy and chic about it. It's like playing peek-a-boo with your arms. I loved the color of the dress and wanted to add an additional pop of color to it, so I rocked it with my neon yellow belt and at the time a pair of new heels from Calvin Klein that had a yellow patent heel. I thought it made for a cute look.

What I'm wearing
Dress: Soprano
Belt: H&M
Shoes: Calvin
Bracelet: Loft
Cuff: H&M
Earrings: H&M

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A casual day for me and majority of women are jeans and a top. However, I still like to look polished so I keep a stock of cute chic tops to just throw on with my jeans so I look pulled together.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Anna Scholz is back with her new Fall/Winter 2012 collection for her black label line.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When it comes to prints my go to's are leopard, stripes, and polka dots. I rarely branch out unless its a graphic print.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Yesterday, the Eloquii team sent over images from their fall 2012 collection. Eloquii has been producing some solid, modern, trendy styles for women over a size 14 and they are continuing with their chic styles for fall. They're offering loads of prints, metallic's, and a deep rich color scheme of cobalt blue, white, black, and oxblood red. The tailored collection will have you looking sharp and put together at the office and sexy and sophisticated for those special nights that involve a cocktail or two.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last month I was invited to Les Femmes who lunch with Simply Be. First let me say how much I love Simply Be as a brand. They are super professional, fun, and know how to treat blogger's. I've been to quite a few Simply Be events and each time I go, I have a blast and leave wanting to buy everything on their website.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last night I took a trip to H&M on 34th street because I didn't have time to go on my lunch break. For those of you who follow me on twitter and Instagram, know that I do most of my shopping on my lunch breaks. I just feel I find the best pieces when I have a limited amount of time to shop. Fortunately, I had to save my lunch break shopping for after work and I'm glad I did. To my surprise, the H&M + section was filled with stylish goodies.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's lunch time and our favorite thing to do other than getting some fresh air and a bite to eat is to shop. Today, we're digging quite a few pieces from every one's favorite vintage plus size boutique, Redress. Recently, they've stocked their online site with loads of stylish plus size dresses and plus size tops with prints that range from polka dots to the trendy scarf print.

While you snack on your salad or bust down that burger and fries for lunch, checkout our top 10 stylish picks from Redress:

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We are posting late today because I am getting my writing hustle on and need time to focus. I can't leave you guys with nothing, so I am starting and ending the day with a Stylish Curves of the day feature. Today's submission  is from Amarachi and she is representing the curvy girls in Maryland.

When it comes to embracing her curves here's what she had to say:

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's the second week of August and we are already craving fall pieces. We have started our fall wish lists and we can't wait to get these 10 uber chic fall plus size styles from Simply Be.
Yes, it's still hot and humid and it will be at least another 2 months before we start to feel that cool 50 degree weather, but, in order to create the best fall wardrobe ever, we need a head start.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Fall is rapidly approaching and we can't wait, especially since August is so ridiculously humid. The thought of sunny breezy days and wearing pieces with warm rich dark hues kind of gets us excited about the upcoming fall season. As stores are having massive sales on their summer apparel they're slowly advertising fall designer collections that strengthens our anticipation for the fall season to hurry up and get here. Let's face it, we're done with the summer heat.

Sunday, August 5, 2012

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
You know every summer there is always that one article of clothing that you just can't get enough of. Somehow its the answer to all your style conundrums. Well, this yellow ruffled hi-low dress is all that for me.  Since we are embarking on the end of summer I need clothes that keep me cool and confident. While doing a little weekend shopping a few weeks ago, I found this pretty cute exposed ruffled zipper dress at Ashley Stewart. Now, I am not a frequent shopper of Ashley Stewart but I do go in for a visit from time to time. 

Friday, August 3, 2012
