FASHION FRIDAY: Color My World by @VintageBlondie

Hello and Happy New Year to all my Chunky Chickz out there in Chunky Chickz World!! Hope your 2013 so far has been fabulous and wonderful. So we have a full year to discuss the latest fashion trends, and what better way to start off than with the Colored Skinny Jeans Trend! Everywhere you look you now see everyone in colored skinnies, and I absolutely love them! They re-vamp any outfit and automatically turn you into a color blocking fashionista. Colored Jeans come in all types of colors and shades of the rainbow, so you ladies are sure to find a shade that’s perfect for you. I myself have become a little obsessed with this trend. I found myself buying 4 pairs of colored jeans last week! What can I say, I love a good trend! I’m gonna recommend some places where you can find some bold and fabulous colored skinnies. But first let’s see how we can make this trend work for our day to night schedule So let us begin!

Color by Day

If you’re a Chunky Chick like me, you spend most of your day pretty casual. So pair your colored skinny’s with an over sized sweater and cute combat boots so that you keep warm, and stay cute during this harsh winter.

Color by Night

For a night out with the girls or maybe that special somebody, a pair of colored jeans can ensure that you’re the center of attention that night. Dress it, up dress it down, either way these pants ensure comfort while still looking hot!

Colored Skinnies can be found a numerous plus size retailers, but the best to get them in my opinion is Forver21, Ashley Stewart, Torrid and Lane Bryant! I have colored skinnies from all places and they fit extremely well! Also try your hand at Old Navy, NY & Company, and even your local thrift store! Colored skinnies have been out forever!

So ladies I hope you have enjoyed this First Fashion Friday Post of 2013. Hopefully you run out and try your hand at some colored skinny jeans. You will be glad you did! Follow me on Twitter at @VintageBlondie, and check out more cool things on my website www.nothingminusaboutaplus.blogspot.com! Until next time ladies! Xoxoxox

FASHION FRIDAY: ARM CANDY | by @VintageBlondie

Hello to all my chunkyChickz out there in chunkyChickz world!  Its me again with another fabulous segment of Fashion Fridays. Now, one of the most important and fun things about an outfit is…*drumroll* The Accessories! A necklace can make all the difference in an outfit. But today our focus isn’t on necklaces. No ladies today we are going to discuss bracelets or as we in the fashion world like to call it, Arm Candy.

Now Arm Candy is basically any way to stack your bracelets. It can be rhinestone, pearls, a friendship bracelet or a big watch. It all depends on how creative you can be. The best place to get most of these accessories at affordable prices is Foreer21 stores or Forever21.com. There accessories options are amazing and never, ever disappoints! You can always find some amazing bracelets in there.

Now if your a plus size woman, who goes into stores and bracelets don’t quite fit your wrist, don’t fret because there are still arm candy options for you! Fashion 2 Figure, Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant ; pretty much any plus size store that carries accessories can cater to us women out there who have a thicker wrist but still wanna rock some arm candy.

Fashion Friday: The Hi or Low Trend | by @VintageBlondie

Hi or Low?

 

            Hello Ladies! It’s me again from NothingMinusaboutaplus.blogspot.com (Excuse the name change!) and welcome back to Fashion Fridays! So this summer, I have seen the hi-low trend everywhere. In shirts, dresses and skirts; any place that you choose to shop this summer, will definitely have hi-low items in stock. I love it so much and hopefully by the end of today’s segment you will be in love with it as well. So let’s get started!

Shirts

So, the first thing I ever fell in love with in this trend is the amazing hi-low tops. Some of them come short, some of them come long, but either way they are so fabulous. The perfect accessories and shoes can transform these tops from casual to dressy instantly. Pair them with a nice pair of shorts or leggings and it creates the absolute perfect summer outfit!

Skirts

So the next best thing about this trend is the skirts. Whether its sheer, printed, a solid color of polka dots, every woman this season should have a high-low skirt! Now even though the warm weather is leaving soon, it doesn’t hurt to break out this skirt with an awesome pair of wedges before the bright summer sun leaves us. Show those lovely legs some love.

Dresses

Alright ladies final and last item on our hi-low topic is the hi-low dress. Now ladies, this just may replace your regular LBD( Little Black Dress). It’s sophisticated, its elegant and its definitely something different. The flowy, long frabric drapes your curves and gives it a beautiful, dramatic feel. And im telling you ladies, heads will definitly turn when your wearing one of thease dresses. Trust me, heads def did when I wore mine!

 Alright ladies, well that’s enough of me rambling on for today. Please join me next Friday on ChunkyChickzWorld as we uncover and discuss more plus size fashion trends. Be sure to come visit me over at nothingminusaboutaplus.blogspot.com and become my tweetiepie over on twitter at @VintageBlondie. Until next time ladies, Stay Fabulous.
