I recently learned that Amazon collaborates with bloggers and influencers from around the world to create a clothing collection that represents them and their current trend. Its pretty intense because you have 30 hours to shop the collection and once it sells out, its gone.
Recently I had the pleasure of picking a piece from the @SignedBlake collection that was completely out of my comfort zone and decided to style it out of my normal style. Blake is the first black influencer I noticed to have a collection, and not only do I follow her, she is quite the badass. Most of the collections within The Drop are not plus size friendly, so it is definitely enlightening to see she thought of us.
Wanna know what’s funny? I didn’t originally order this piece. I wanted the floral ruffle maxi dress, so im not sure how my order was mixed up. At the time I couldn’t return it because the piece I wanted sold out in my size. After a couple weeks I decided to take it out for a spin and go grunge chic. Yeah, that’s what I’m calling it. I decided to pair it with some combat boots that’s high on trend this season and I belted the dress to give it more shape. Also rolling up the sleeves helps frame the look as well.
I’m so glad I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something different! Stay tuned for my next Amazon The Drop review!
When I discovered Eloquii years ago, I was bittersweet. I was so excited to find a plus size brand that sold trendy, chic items but bitter because I could not afford it at the time. Now that I am blessed to be able to, about 85% of my wardrobe is of this brand. They also have the best sales! Not too long ago, Eloquii partnered with Walmart on an Elements collection focusing on everyday fashion at modest prices. What I love about this line is even though the prices are significantly lower than other pieces on the site, the quality is still there. When I saw the release, I rushed to Walmart.com, where I saw it first and picked up a few things.
This peplum jacket can be worn many ways, but I opted to wear it as a jacket in a casual manner! I went a size up in case I decide to wear it as a shirt and what I love about this outfit is that no only is it comfortable and warm, it is easy to chase my one year old!
Even though the next two tops are long sleeved, they are so comfy. Florals have always been my thing since I was a young teenager. You can get the floral top here.
Who doesn’t love animal print? Even though I’m wearing this leopard top in a casual manner, it is still versatile and can be worn dressy, not to mention animal prints are neutral
Check out their entire collection at Eloquii.com or you can even visit Walmart’s site here.
WhoWhatWear have been showing out for my plus size beauties at Target! Like so many of the items in the collection, this blouse caught my eye. You can never go wrong with a simple blue and white stripe and it’s very versatile. The ruffles add all kinds of flair to this look and I had at least 3 looks in my head when I bought it.
My fiancé and I always have a great time taking pics together, but he gets annoyed when I freeze up when other people pass by or look. I’m not that type of blogger that can just take pics like no one is watching…yet. Give me time.
I kept the look simple and chic by wearing some skinnies, with my dope out of season Michael Kors purse and some heels from Zara from a few years ago. I have no shame in mixing old and new pieces together. It bring such great character and style to any look!
Would you believe these heels were super painful? Lol. I haven’t worn heels higher than 3.75 inches in a few years because of my weight, but now that I’ve been working out lately, it’s not so painful. But pain is beauty and I love these heels.
