I love a dress with long sleeves. There aren’t as many out there as I would like, especially when it comes to dressier dresses, but when it comes to fall in Montreal, a pretty long sleeve dress is a must have!
I’m long past my days of wearing long sleeves for the sole purpose of hiding what I thought were my hideous upper arms. It’s just that it’s nice to be able to keep my arms out of the brisk fall breeze without having to cover up, which is in the case of this adorable dress from SexyPlus, an absolutely gorgeous neckline!
The fall transition period can be a bit tricky, especially when it comes to dressing up. More often than not, it comes down to a a choice between style and comfort, but this dress is the best of both worlds!
Super chic, with its classic polka dot print, and sleeves long enough to extend no-coat-check season for at least a few more weeks— what’s not to love!? And can we talk about how it hugs my curves!!! Yassssss!!!

You guysss!!! Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve!!!
So, to commemorate the year gone by, and ring in 2016 in style, I’ll be bringing you three looks over the next three days to celebrate New Years Eve Eve (shut up, it’s a thing), New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day!
As an only child, when I was growing up, the holidays were a particularly joyful time in my life, and not so much because of the presents and the goodies (although, I wasn’t mad at them), but what I really loved the most, was that my mum and I would go stay at my grandparent’s house for Christmas break, and my aunt would drive up from Ontario with my four cousins, to stay too. For two weeks each winter, it was like I was part of a big family, and I always looked so forward to it.
There was no let down after the excitement of Christmas morning died down, because we were all still together, and then of course, once all of those festivities concluded, we still had New Year’s to look forward to!
December 30th was always New Year’s Eve Eve to us, and to me, it always will be. This stunning, winter white Kiyonna dress from SexyPlus captures the purity and innocence of those childhood memories perfectly.
I’ve topped off the look with the absolute most incredible faux-fur stole from F.O.C. by Flaws Of Couture, which lends a luxurious touch of old world Hollywood glam to this already elegant look.
Although our lives and traditions have evolved, and those childhood memories are just faded old photographs in the albums of my mind, it still makes me smile to think of those two weeks each year, when nothing else mattered but playing with our Christmas presents, drinking Coke floats, building couch cushion forts (much to our grandmother’s chagrin), and planning our upcoming outfits on New Year’s Eve Eve.

It’s that time of year again! When any profession, character, and/or animal suddenly gains magical erotic powers and becomes instantly sexy!
Yup! Halloween! And ever since I humiliated my kids, dressed as Fat Miley Cyrus a couple of years ago, I’ve made it my mission to dress up and make them cringe until a sexy granny costume won’t even be necessary, because I’ll be one anyway!
This year’s costume is far less cringe-worthy, I must admit! In fact, my five-year-old son basically thinks I’m the coolest, and my fifteen-year-old… Well, I humiliate him on a daily basis, so he’s not a very good example…
Complete with fingerless gloves, and a faux-walkie-talkie, my Sexy SWAT costume from SexyPlus Clothing is so realistic, you’d never even know it wasn’t an actual SWAT team uniform, especially since we all know, there’s a minimum fishnet requirement on all special task force uniforms in real life. (I’m being facetious by the way, in case you were wondering.)
It had me feeling my inner Colin Farrell (which, when read out loud, is a few words short [or too many] of being a little too sexy, if you know what I’m saying)…
Enjoy 10% off at SexyPlus until Friday, October 30th, when you use code SEXYORSPOOKY!

When I was growing up, the options, as far as plus size clothing went, were still pretty limited.
Sure, there were a handful of department stores offering certain standard pieces in larger sizes, and there were some exclusively plus size shops too… But still, most clothing manufacturers weren’t branching out and taking risks for us fat fashionistas!
So, when I learned that Point Zero, an iconic Canadian brand that I grew up loving, had launched a curvy line, I was really intrigued and feeling some serious nostalgia for a brand that I admittedly, had lost touch with since 1999 (AKA the great expansion [of my hips], or “that time I became too XL for XL and stayed that way”).
I was lucky enough to be able to sample a few items from Point Zero Curvy, and over the next three days, I will be bringing you three mix and match looks, work, weekend, and date night, using five fab pieces from the collection!
Today, it’s all about workweek chic in this gorgeous knit skirt with faux leather trim, paired with the most beautifully embellished, knit top.
The quality of these pieces is weighty and luxurious, and the fit is total perfection.
The top, tucked in, with a great belt to cinch in the waist looks super polished and chic.
While modern accessories add some delicate sparkle and play off the beaded neckline flawlessly.
And for a little fun and edginess that’s perfect for fall, this amazing, faux-leather moto jacket to make sure that come the end of the day, I’ll be hitting the pavement in style!
Cinq-à-sept, anyone? Because I look too cute to be heading straight home!
Okay, so maybe I don’t actually work in an office, or do glamorous stuff like get together with coworkers for martinis before heading in for the evening, but I know a well put-together look when I see one, and these Point Zero Curvy pieces make it totally effortless!!!
Stay tuned tomorrow and Friday to see how I’ve reworked some of these pieces with new ones to create weekend and date night Point Zero Curvy looks!
And be sure to follow Point Zero on Facebook and Instagram @pointzeroclothing, to keep up to date on their latest collections and promotions!

Wedding season is in full swing. Every weekend I see a blissful newlywed couple posing for their wedding photos along the water not far from where I Iive.
With, at the very least, a wedding or two to attend each summer, we inevitably scope out the dress scene!
Of course, it’s all about the blushing bride’s dress — obvi; and the handsome groom too… But I still like to make a statement. After all, you’re bound to bump into at least one ex, or common girlfriend who talked behind your back that one time, and whom you absolutely can’t stand, and now you need to look extra hot in front of — err… Maybe that’s just me…? *nervous laugh*
But anyway, there’s no harm in bringing your A game to a wedding, because let’s face it… At some point during the evening, at least some eyes will be on you!
Searching for the perfect dress can seem a daunting task, but that’s why I love Canadian owned (and internationally shipping) SexyPlus Clothing!
The owner (and absolute dollface), Stefanie (a plus size woman herself) has curated a wonderful collection of dresses in all styles to suit your wedding season (or any season) needs, so you don’t have to search. She just gets it.
This gorgeous and luxurious little black & white number is actually a convertible dress that can also be worn strapless. I must admit though, my favourite of the two is this classic halter style.
I paired it with a cute head scarf, cork wedges, and a vintage metallic mesh clutch that I thrifted (kachiiiiing) earlier this summer!
It’s chic, old world sexy, and perfect for a wedding, or any occasion!
So definitely take a peek at the selection over at SexyPlus! There are so many gorgeous dresses! Whether your style is elegant, or super sassy, you’ll be sure to find something that’s just perfect for you!

Ok, so I’m not even gonna lie… I spend most of my weekends in pyjamas – not because I’m lazy, but because I can. And I’m cool with that.
But I do love a great outfit for those days when I have no choice but to get out and be productive! The perfect weekend ensemble has got to start with some great basics!
When it comes to effortlessly chic basics, it simply doesn’t get any better than these amazing leggings and this super cute, tank top from SexyPlus Clothing!
I always love breaking fashion “rules” so this combination of black and navy is really fun!
Paired with a cute white blazer from Torrid, some bold, gold jewelry, sunnies, and a great bag, this nautical look has a classic feel; and these fabulous, black patent flatforms from ASOS lend it an edgy twist!
I was definitely feeling myself in these great pieces… So much, in fact, that I may actually make an effort to get dressed again tomorrow!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, loves, I know I will (even if it just started raining here in Montreal)!!!

We’re patiently… Err… Impatiently waiting for Spring to act like spring here in a Montreal. It snowed over Easter weekend, and again yesterday, but the sun has been coming out to play here and there, so there’s still hope, I hope…?
Over the course of the next couple of weeks I’ll be taking advantage of this long lost sunshine (when it chooses show itself) to bring you some refreshing Spring looks from SexyPlus Clothing, a Mississauga, Ontario based business, run by the fabulous Stefanie Auguteijn, who is just an absolute dollface!!!
And while springtime is all about sprouting flowers, baby bunnies & (awww, baby bunniiiiiiieees!!!) & such, here in the land of Easter snow, one of the surest signs of Spring is when we finally (ugh, and I mean fi-na-lyyy) ditch our winter coats in lieu of a cozy hoodie.
Like, I’m totally obsessed. I’ve been wearing it all week!!! A great hoodie is the most underrated piece that just about everyone owns, but rarely celebrates; but I’m telling y’all, there is just so much to be excited about as a plus size woman, wearing her body positivity on her sleeve (literally) and flaunting her sexy, self-confidence with pride!
I paired it with my fave Parasuco jeans, and since I was kinda feeling myself that day (ok, like a lot feeling myself), I decided to rock some serious bling!
How cute do my chain anklets from Ready to Stare look with my Coach, canvas slip ons?
So get into spring, loves! Whether it’s actually sprung in your corner of the world, or still a little confused, like in mine. This is the season to get your sexy on, and where better to start, than at SexyPlus!!!
