Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A few weeks ago I was invited to attend Burlington Coat Factory's grand opening in Union Square. After Filene's went bankrupt last year, the retail space above DSW was desolate.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Fall is the perfect time for layering. This black lace ivory blouse from Evan will look fantastic peeking out from under a cropped cardigan or blazer.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It looks like this weekend is the end of warm weather, long bright sunny days, and the sound of the ice cream truck cruising down the block. I am ready to fully embrace the fall season. I'm looking forward to leather jackets, dark tights, boots, and scarves.

Hey there stylish curvy ladies, 
Fall is officially here! It's that time to decide what trends will we fall in love with or just leave it on the runway. A huge trend this season are cap toe shoes. I personally love this trend because it adds a little attitude to any simple outfit.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The days are flying by so fast that before you know it, coat season will be here. Have you thought about what kind of coat you will be wearing this season? I personally love classic coats. Coats that stand the test of  time. Believe it or not it can be very hard to find classic coats in plus sizes. Every brand is so focused on trends that they forget sometimes you're just looking for a classic look that goes with everything in your closet.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
As stated in our plus size fall guide, metallics are a hot fall trend. We spotted these super cute metallic skinny jeans over at Forever 21 and have already created 3 outfits in our minds with them. 

Are you into the metallic trend?

Oh, did we mention they also come in silver too

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This past summer one of the pieces I was most excited about was these orange pants from Tahari Plus. Like every girl I enjoy a good deal at Forever21 and Fashion to Figure, but I am a big believer in having quality pieces that will last a very long time. It's one of the reasons why I like shopping at Department stores especially Bloomingdales and Lord & Taylor. Those two are my absolute faves.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This week two of our favorite plus size celebrities were spotted at their new TV movie premiere Steel Magnolias. I don't know about you but I am super excited to see the TV version because I am such a big fan of the original.

Jill Scott always brings it and the Steel Magnolia's premiere was no different. She rocked a sequin faux wrapped dress and her natural locks. I love it all. Werk it!

Queen Latifah kept things classy and simple in a black asymmetrical dress and statement necklace. This is a little demure for the Queen but I think she looks classy. What about you?

Hey curvy girls allover the world,
I am doing back flips this morning because Academy Award winning actress and fellow plus size curvy woman, Octavia Spencer is looking smoking hot on the cover of Elle magazine's November issue aka Women in Hollywood issue.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Rebel Wilson is my new girl crush. After seeing her in Bridesmaids I was eagerly waiting to see what her next move was going to be. She has a new movie coming out called "Pitch Perfect" and I can't wait to see it. She has such a natural talent for comedy. What I also like about Rebel is her fun and funky personality that we see when she gets interviewed. There is just something so magnetic about it.

Hey curvy or should I say Kurvy girls all over the world,
I was able to get a look at the Kardashian Kurves plus size collection via Sears website.Right now, I have mixed reviews as far as presentation goes. The line is brand spanking new as of this week so they only have a few items on the website. I'm sure they have more in store. With that being said  I really wish that designers would honestly take the time and money to create an honest campaign and look book when creating plus size lines. I feel that people just bank on using the word plus and think that's all they have to say to get us in the store. When Kmart came out with their plus size line LYS, they did a video, created a stylish look book and campaign that actually made you want to buy what they were selling. I was hoping for the same thing with the Kardashian Kurves line. After a model search for their denim, I just new that they were going to have a sassy little look book or stylish campaign to debut the line. Well, I was wrong. Sadly, what we have so far are just dresses on non-plus size models and and a few pairs of jeans .

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Currently, plaid shirts are becoming quite the budding trend. We saw sprinkles of it last fall remember our post with Kourtney Kardashian in a cut out shoulder top? (read here) and we are noticing it even more this season. Plaid is one of those prints that you either love or hate. We actually like it because of the modern and feminine styles that are available today. I for one am a fan of the girlie colored plaid shirts. We are happy that plus size brands have started to make some styles that are cute and fun.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Yesterday, Plus Model Mag released their Love Your Body issue. As you all know when it comes to pushing the envelope PMM always gets it right. PMM tapped cover Model, blonde bombshell Ivory to set the tone of the issue, which is chock full of body loving photos and editorials.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Man that ASOS really knows how to take all your money. We are completely crushing on this colored sequin pencil skirt from the Curve line. They just never miss a beat when it comes to creating stylish plus size clothes.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Happy Monday! We are kicking off this Monday with a super cute and chic dress from ASOS Curve. The peter pan collar trend is everywhere and it makes any dress or top that much more interesting. We adore this  black and white color contrast plus size dress from ASOS because it is so versatile and it kind of has that school girl vibe to it. Rock it heels or a pair of edgy boots for a cool look. Oh, and it also comes in yellow for those of you that like to look vibrant.

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.

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.
