unzipped

I recently spotted these amazing printed pants on Dorothy Perkins, and they have a matching jacket! I love a printed suit, but after trying it on, I decided that wearing both pieces together was a little much--even for me. Instead, I paired the pants with a sheer black button down from F21 (love the studded shoulders and collar) and an amazing cream leather jacket from Addition Elle that I got when I was in Toronto for their store opening a few weeks ago. According to the Canadian ladies, Addition Elle has been moving in a more fashion forward direction, and I believe it; I had a hard time picking out just one item to bring home. The perforated sleeves and zip details on this jacket are phenomenal--I like to wear the zippers a bit open to create a peplum effect. The bad news? I wore this outfit on my flight from New York to Chicago, fell asleep with red bright lipstick on...and woke up with it smeared all over my new favorite piece. UGH. I suck at wearing white.

ASOS Curve Summer Preview

ASOS was kind enough to fly me to New York on Friday for their Curve Summer Preview! I had so much fun catching up with my favorite ladies and seeing some gorgeous clothes--obviously I'm counting down the days until they're on the site.

Love Affair

I know, I'm the worst! I've been insanely busy with work deadlines and travel...not to mention weather has been crappy and I've been lounging in leggings on my days off. Ironically, I've been shopping non-stop--mostly at ASOS because their stuff has been amazing lately. I'll have a delivery on its way and then they'll add something great and I have to get it; it's an endless cycle and I have a problem. (What's a girl to do when it's the only brand that consistently has fashion forward plus size pieces?) Let's just say you'll be seeing a lot of ASOS on this blog in the coming months...starting with these, via instagram:
Dress from ASOS Maternity, available here. Vest is an old purchase from Saks, I forget the designer. ASOS graphic print dress, available here. Size down, it runs large! Forever21 jacket, no longer available.  
At the Addition Elle store opening in Toronto with Marie and Franceta! Wearing an ASOS coat, no longer available, and F21 button down available here.

ASOS asked me to do an edit for their Curve Facebook Page. See my picks below--photos are clickable. I already own most of these! (No, I'm not being paid to say any of this. I just really fucking love that store).
