Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Our goal here at Stylish Curves is to help you look and feel your best. Yesterday we shared part I of how to dress for your plus size shape and today, as promised, we are back with part 2. I wanted you  ladies to get some advice from our contributor Kawana who is a stylist by trade. She has put together outfit ideas with your shape in mind. 

Here's Kawana:


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It is world domination for Adele. After the success of the multi-platinum 21, a rumor of a plus size clothing line with Burberry, and her first pregnancy, Adele is once again, the cover girl for Rolling Stone. This time it's for their "Women Who Rock," issue. The world is smitten with Adele and I can understand why. She has such a sweet and sassy spirit that it just draws your into her. Her bold piercing eyes and full pout lips are just as alluring as her voice and music.

In her interview with contributing editor David Browne, Adele reveals why it took so long for 21 Album to be released. Read the excerpt below:

The album should have been done – but it wasn't, at least in Adele's mind. Listening to the Rubin tracks, she felt something was missing: the exposed-nerve emotional edge heard in the early versions of "Rolling in the Deep," "Someone Like You," "Rumour Has It" and "Set Fire to the Rain." "It's hard to re-create that emotion nine months later," says Epworth. In the end, she made a tough choice: to scrap most of the Rubin sessions, only using four of them, and replace them with the earlier takes. "It took a lot of guts," says Abbiss, who received a call from Adele after her work with Rubin. "She wanted to try to recapture a simplicity from the first time around." They cut "Take It All" and "Turning Tables" in less than a week, on deadline.

Hey curvy girls all over the world, 
Today, we are in an animal print mood and we thought that this mesh and nude dress from Torrid would be perfect for a night of partying. The corseted detailing and bold print will definitely get you noticed. Plus it is currently on sale for $20 off.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I get tons of questions about how to dress for your body type. Dressing for your shape takes patience and a lot of trying on clothes. Most people think they are limited when it comes to dressing for your body type but that's simply just not true. Identifying and understanding  your shape is about knowing what works for the largest and smallest parts of your body. Think of shape identification as a guideline to your best looks.


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This year, sheer over-sized tops were everywhere. We were particularly fans of the high low hem versions. From floral prints to studded embellishments we decided to give you some fall outfit inspirations utilizing the over-sized sheer tops. The great thing about this trend is that no matter what you put it with, shorts, skirts, or jeans, you will instantly look pulled together and may we add, cute. 

Checkout our no fuss, no muss outfit ideas:

Look 1
Over-sized sheer blouse with leather pants.
 Leather is a major trend this season and we think it looks super cool when paired with a sheer over-sized blouse. Not into leather pants, then try a pair of colored jeans. This particular top would look just as good with a pair of pumpkin colored skinny jeans.

Where to buy
Floral blouse: Evans, Leather pants-forever21 plus, Bag: Michael Kors, Chanel Lipstick, Platform Heels: Topshop, Sunnies: Mango, Earrings: Topshop


Look 2
An over-sized Sheer blouse with a body con skirt
A skirt paired with an over-sized top is perfect for a sexy night out with the girls. Instead of adding color with shoes we decided to keep the look young and edgy with leopard print platform ankle boots and added the pop of color with a teal clutch. Cross earrings and lashes add a rock & roll feel.


Studded blouse: Evans, Body Con Skirt: Maurices, Ankle boots: Charlotte Russe, Clutch: ASOS Earrings, Earrings:Topshop, Bangle:Guess

We kept the looks chic and simple because we wanted to show you how easy and universal these tops are. We hope we inspired you.

What do you guys think?

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A few months ago Monif C. gave us a preview of some fall 2012 pieces. Well now, she has released the remainder of the fall 2012 collection and it features the beautiful, sexy, curvy Allison McGevna. I love Allison's look beacuse she has this dark lustrous hair and her look has an old school pinup appeal.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
add a little graphics to your fall wardrobe with this black and white panel shift dress from Evans.






Hey curvy girls all over the world, 
Happy hump day! Normally, I'm sad to see summer go and try to prolong it as much as I can. However, it's kind of hard to do that this year because the weather has been so cool and beautiful. It has put me in the fall spirit.

Hey there curvy ladies,
Are you ready for fall as much as I am? Fall is my favorite season, I love wearing scarves, bright jackets and cutie boots. What are you favorite items to wear for fall?

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's been awhile since I've done a video for Stylish Curves TV. My last video was my spring haul (seen here). Well, I am working on being more consistent with doing videos. However, I want to make sure I'm not bringing you redundant material. So, what I've decided to do is to take you guys shopping with me. One of the things I love to do most is shop. I don't always have to buy anything but I sincerely enjoy seeing what's in stores.
Checkout the video after the break

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend the Mynt 1792 collection launch presented by Plus Model Magazine. If you haven't heard already, Mynt 1792 is a new plus size line that consists of blazers, jackets, coats, and denim for plus size women. The new line is a well curated collection of outerwear and bottoms that the new generation of plus size women would want to wear. They showcased their collection this past summer at FFFWeek and they are set to launch their online site on October 1st and not only will you be able to purchase their clothes on their site, the clothes will also be available at Nordstrom's online site as well.


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last week Elena Miro debuted her spring collection at LFW and I think this may just be her best one yet. With lots of bold pattern play on silk fabrics spring is sure to be a dashing one for plus size fashionista's. Elena Miro's knack for adding strong feminine appeal to her is what makes her standout as a designer. For spring she banked on form fitting silhouttes with sheath dresses and leather skirts.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Sometimes a night out requires an all black outfit. Now black, especially all black is not my thing. I am a girl who loves bright colors and likes to mix them up. However, A few months ago I spotted this sheer mesh polka dot top from H&M plus line. I scooped it up so fast because it was very reminiscent of Stella McCartney's mesh polka dot dresses and tops she created for her Fall 2011 line. 
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Happy Sunday! This morning we have so serious good news to hit the plus size fashion industry and we couldn't be more excited.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
All this week, my uniform has been blazers and button downs. I just wanted no muss no fuss this week. Get up and go was the motto.

Hey there stylish curvy ladies,
As much as we love to have the perfect wardrobe, no outfit can be complete without the "right" handbag. So, you ask, "What's the "right" handbag? The "right" handbag goes with everything. Here are some examples the perfect bag can be worn to work: blazer, simple top, leopard shirt, and black pumps. The same bag will be perfect for a girls night out: Skinny jeans, off the shoulder top, and your favorite wedges. Your close friend is getting married: Peplum dress with simple kitten heels and your favorite bag.



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Happy Friday!It's been awhile since we've gotten a Stylish Curves of the day submission, so we are kicking off this late Friday with one.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When it comes to accessories one of the things I like to wear besides a pair of over sized earrings are colored and tortoise shell glasses. There is just something about them that  adds a little flair to your outfit. I have a pair of pink round bug eyed sunglasses that I wear and have worn on this blog. I love how a pair of colored frames can add an extra jolt to a simple look or take an already snazzy ensemble to the next level. When I buy glasses I do like to go with name brands but I like name brands on a discount.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It seems that the upcoming spring season will possess femininity, strength, structure, and a little bit of seduction according to the collection of Erin Barr. Erin took the minimalist approach to spring dressing and added splashes of color which included vampy red and black. 




Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When fall rolls around one of the pieces I get so excited to buy is a knit/sweater dress. I love sweater dresses because there is something so cool and casual about them yet they are ultra stylish. They can be worn with tall stacked heel boots for a dressy look or with a cute pair of flats for a casual look.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I often get asked a lot if I really wear heels and dress up when I'm with my child. The God honest truth is YES. I remember when I found out that I was pregnant, saying to myself, I will not be one of those mom's who let themselves go and wear leggings and sweat pants all the time.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
In a sea of over the top trends Tadashi Shoji always manages to stay true to his aesthetic. Whether its spring or fall you can always expect glamorous sophisticated dresses with a touch of sexiness. Next spring Tadashi literally will have you laced in the most flattering cocktail and red carpet ready dresses.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Finding boots for wide calves can be quite difficult. Finding quality well made boots for wide calves can prove to be even more difficult. It's as if the retail industry just ignores people with special footwear needs. Whether you're plus size or have an athletic build you should be able to find a wide calf boot with no problems.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
One of the best ways to boost your body confidence is to wear sexy lingerie under your clothes. Rocking a super sexy bra and panty combo can sky rocket your confidence.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to go and visit a DOTS store in Staten Island to do a video on current trends (post coming this week). I wanted to wear something cute and casual and nothing screams cute and casual more than jeans and a top.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It looks like color blocking is still going to be a popular trend for the fall season. Ashley Stewart has a super cute and dashing color blocked sheath dress that will work for the office and for drinks after. Best thing of all it's under $50. You can't beat that!

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The heat is over and I nixed my Mikki Taylor low bun and am back to growing out my hair. Who knows, I may weave it up again but for now, I'm showing the world the real me. Since fall has arrived I've been slowly curating my work wardrobe. While looking through my closet a few weeks ago, I realized I didn't have a major wardrobe staple, which is the wrap dress. Of all things!
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Spotted this week was the real life Jessica Rabbit, Mrs. Christina Hendricks. She was spotted at the "Book of Mormon" premiere in a Tadashi Shoji cutout flared dress. You, know the one that me and 8 other blogger's wore for Tadashi Shoji's style challenge? Well, Christina is rocking the long sleeve version of the dress.

We want to know is she working it or is it back to the drawing board for this curvy girl? VOTE below



Here is the sleeveless version. Get it HERE



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
So, I've been trying to crank out my fashion week articles this week and between events and shows I've been slacking. However, I'm making up for it. I have a new review ready for you today.

Wednesday, September 12, 2012


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I don't know about you but I hate when my breast play a game of peek-a-boo whenever I wear a button down shirt. Isn't it awkward when  people are staring at you and you don't know why until you look down to see that your girls are exposed? Yeah, it's an embarrassing moment. As a woman with an ample bosom, I am always on the hunt for button down shirts that don't gap in the middle and that don't look ridiculously wrinkled by the end of the day. When I was contacted by a team member over at Foxcroft, a woman's apparel collection, to try out a couple of their essential button down shirts, I jumped at the chance.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I love a sexy pair of shoes and Pour La Victoire has just released photos from their new holiday/resort campaign and it is muy caliente. Pour La Victoire has been building a name for themselves over the past couple of years with their on trend sexy heels.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Leather is a major player among trends this season and everyone is trying their hand at it. Right now we are digging this uber cute fun and flirty leather sheath dress from Eloquii. There are endless possibilities when it comes to styling it and the juxtaposition of the leather bodice and pleated swing skirted bottom is feminine and bad ass.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
After a hot, humid, and rainy weekend, It was nice to finally get a cool breezy day yesterday. It truly felt like fall had arrived. All week, I've been rocking fall pieces from the Simply Be collection and I decided to kick off this week with another ensemble from the UK based brand.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Between runway shows and fashion week events,I've been a busy bee. This past Saturday I was invited to the Cocktails and Couture even hosted by Lianne Farbes and Afrobella and sponsored by Blogher. Saturday was a hot, humid, and rainy night but that didn't stop some of the who's who in the fashion and beauty blogging industry from coming out to enjoy a night of cocktails and Couture.


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
While we are all still getting our fall wardrobes together why not think about adding a few fun pieces. Houndstooth was all over the runways last year and we even saw a few cool pieces on fall 2012 runways like Max Mara.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This weekend I took a break from Lincoln center and indulged in some fashion week parties. Saturday, I hit up the Curves and Couture (post coming later today) cocktail party hosted by Lianne Farbes and sponsored by Blogher (big news about  me an Blogher post coming out later today). As you all can recall, this weekend was hot and humid with the exception of Sunday. Thank God for Sunday!
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
BCBG is in my top 5 list of designers that need to do a plus size line. Their designs are so ladylike, modern, and edgy simultaneously. Their clothes is what I would want to live my life in as a plus size woman.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Good Morning and Happy Monday! You guys loved the studded dress from Evans last week so much that we couldn't help but share that we found a cheaper and colorful version of the dress.

We must give thanks to Forever21 Plus for this sexy little dress
