Blogger Exclusive: Fall Preview of SexyPlus Clothing

IMG_4459In my short time blogging I’ve been very fortunate to have met some fantastic, inspiring new people.  People who truly encourage and support the endeavours of bloggers within the plus size community, who operate with the true spirit of collaboration.  Stefanie Augusteijn, Owner of SexyPlus Clothing embodies all of this – she talks the talk, and walks the walk.   Earlier this week she threw a soiree… a Blogger Exclusive …to preview the fabulous Fall fashions her lovely boutique has to offer.

Naturally, I HAD to try on a few items of course…. any of these strike YOUR fancy for Fall friends?  Special shoutouts to go the lovely shop-girls, McKina  and Sabrina who were uber attentive and helpful, providing honest opinions and encouragement once you’re ready to emerge from the change rooms.

I really loved this top….made in Canada by Artex

This gorgeous Joseph Ribkoff black n’ leather fit me more like a dress than it did a jacket … ah yes, the pleasures of being petite.

 

Overall, it was a fantastic night.  Or in the words of Miss Stefanie:

It was a girl-power-curvy-positive-collaborative-fashion-princess-empowering-sizesexy kind of night.

Too funny…..us being drama queens … “It’s Too Hot!”

So … the big question – what did I go home with? 🙂

1.  A gorgeous statement necklace by Victorious Me, a Toronto-based retailer

2.  A long slit dress, custom made for SexyPlus Clothing by Ralph C also made in Canada – $99…reduced to $25!!!!  Crazytown score – hooray for me!

3.  The newsprint dress: made in Canada by Artex, called the Jax dress, new Fall arrival priced at $89 — a steal and a half!!!

I even got my very own MEME out of the night … words to live by, I think 😉

#MyVegasStyle

Now…I’ve never been to Vegas myself.  I was close last summer when I was a California Girl for a week (see my Wanderlust page for a few pics of that trip).  Sadly my trip was too short to include a jaunt to down to The Gambling Capital.  Vegas is definitely on my travel-list…and I would certainly need to pack weeks in advance to make sure I was Vegas Ready when it came to Daytime and Nighttime looks.

I was approached by the Content Director of Vegas.com to participate in their current blog challenge: #MyVegasStyle.

Challenge accepted!!! 😉

 

Vegas Style: Daytime

I’m usually for fashion over function.  Buuuuut for daytime looks in desert heat, my vote is for fashion with function!  Light, easy fabrics that could easily take you to a nice lunch spot, like at Aria’s Lemongrass resturant, and would keep you comfortable if you wanted to explore the sights of Vegas on foot (which would mean swapping heels for fun flats and sandals).  Take a look at these collages of daytime #myvegasstyle – including a ton of sun hats, my newest obsession!  I included a personal #ootd from a previous post that I think would totally fit into this category of Vegas Daytime Style too!

Swimwear

Frankly, any of the swimwear from Monif C. would totally fall into #MyVegasStyle category! Love! Love! Love!

This Peru Fringe Swimsuit would definitely be in my carry-on to Vegas.  A dream come true for chesty chicks like me, and the sexy fringe details help distract from any thigh insecurities.   Sexy! Brilliant! Love!

Vegas Style: Nighttime  

Titty City – I would definitely play up the cleavage in Sin City! I think for a nice dinner followed by a show and gambling I could finally rock my Valentina Illusion Dress from Kiyonna.  I think this number should bring someone a bit of luck, gambling if not otherwise…don’t you think? 😉

Leopard – I’m wearing this faux wrap Joseph Ribkoff dress a few weeks ago for a girlfriend’s birthday celebration.  All three of us look like we were Vegas Nighttime Ready already, don’t you think?  Meow indeed!!! 😉  Maybe we could wear these outfits to club Haze in the Aria Hotel.

Sequins – Where better to wear a glittery number if not in the “Entertainment Capital of the World”!  I would def pack and rock my sequins tank and dress, depending on the time of year, I’d swap the tall boots for sexy pumps for nighttime fun in Vegas.  Check out my previous post, How to Wear Sequins for other ideas to incorporate into a Vegas style look 🙂

Little Black Dress (LBD) – You can’t really go wrong with this approach for Vegas Nightlife.

I’m thinking Audrey classy, not clubby-trashy….
