Edgy Officewear

Finding office-appropriate outfits, that you actually like,  for your plus-size bod can be a challenge. If you’re like me, you want your clothing to feel and look fabulous, but also to stay within your office’s set dress code. This sleeveless moto dress is new for Fall from Pennington’s.  I picked it up with one of my birthday coupons…
