I remember the first time I ordered a piece from Monif C. It was a dress, in the most dazzling multicolour print which seemed to contain every shade known to man, with one sheer black sleeve, and a whole lot of attitude! I had never worn anything that hugged my curves and made me love my hips so much in my entire life.
That was about two years ago now, but Monif C. has been killing the plus size fashion game for much longer than that!
10 years to be specific, and to celebrate, the brand has teamed up with ten fabulous blogger babes, myself included, to showcase their “A Decade Of Curves” collection!
I was asked to choose my fave Monif C. piece from the new collection, and I instantly fell in love with the “Paloma” fleece jumpsuit!!!
While it can definitely be dressed down and worn as a casual outfit, I really wanted to play on the contrast that this jumpsuit already contains within itself and pair this sporty fabric with classic, super elegant, almost Gatsby-esque accessories.
This stunning collar necklace and embellished clutch from Aldo, and my custom shoes that I designed myself from Shoes Of Prey were the perfect pieces to adorn this velvety grey masterpiece and really make a statement.

I’ve been meaning to get this last one of my silver fox hair posts out to you guys, but with my new gig with The Penningtons Blog, the end of my kids’ school year fast approaching, getting ready for FFFW and The CurvyCon in New York City, and season three of OITNB finally released, life has been a bit crazy! I’m not complaining though – quite the opposite actually!
All this hustle & bustle just gives me more excuses to wear rediculously comfy outfits, and that my friends, is reason enough to smile!
Then, take that style/comfort combo and add a fun, striped bandeau from Penningtons, a fancy pair of Ted Baker flip flops, a fab beaded belt from Addition Elle, and some pretty silver jewelry, for a super chic street festival inspired look, perfect for summertime in the city!

Some plus size things are harder to find than others; and when it comes to body jewelry, it can be next to impossible to find something to fit our frames – or so I thought, until I discovered Canadian jewelry designer, Cristy Ellen K!!!
Not only is the body positive philosophy of Cristy Ellen K inspiring, but her pieces are just so freaking cool!!!
Wearing it brought out my inner glam-rocker chick, so I slapped on some winged liner (more like, very carefully applied, trying super hard not to screw up) and paired it with my favourite (my only) jumpsuit & denim jacket, from ASOS Curve, some cute black & gold flats, and a pale grey, vintage leather clutch, for a edgy look that made me feel so fierce that I’m actually a little embarrassed to admit how many pics I was giving my resting bitch face (AKA the stink eye) in. Hahaaa!
So check out Cristy Ellen K and see all the fab pieces she has to offer, and keep your eyes open for more of her pieces here on the blog!
