CURRENTLY COVETING: Tadashi Shoji Holiday Collection

You guys, I can't help it. I have dreams of lounging around on a blush, tufted settee in a villa having champagne and macaron parties in these gowns. Tadashi Shoji's collections are always complete works of art, and Fall/Holiday is no exception!

I'm pretty much obsessed with the second gown. It's made of neoprene, which I can't get enough of right now! Classic and fabulous, these dresses will never go out of style!

So often, plus size women are relegated to drab dresses. The rich, saturated colors, and metallic lace on these pieces make sure you won't blend into the background at an event! The teal, off-the-shoulder tulle gown is pretty much the dress of my dreams. My birthday IS in two weeks, so what better excuse! :P Clearly I need to plan something fancy. Adult prom is a thing, right?

You can check out the whole collection online here, and just in case you're in the market for one of these gorgeous dresses, using code FALL20CGC will score you 20% off your purchase. Happy shopping! :)

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog DrJays Plus Size Dress
Took a weekend to get away from the hustle and bustle and reacquaint myself with parts of California I haven't gotten to visit since I was little! So much fun to get away from the crowds for a day.

SUMMER ESSENTIAL

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog - Melissa Masse Dress Summer Essentials
Been pretty much lingering in air-conditioned locales since being outside in the heat turns me into a belligerent train wreck, but for those moments that I know I'll be outside, I've been arming myself with super breezy clothes and a giant hat for sun protection.

CALIFORNIA DREAMIN

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Scarlett and Jo Embellished Dress
Happy Independence Day! :) As much as I'm loving this trip through Europe, I'm missing home quite a bit, especially as I would normally be barbecuing, eating watermelon, and hanging out by the pool today. Ah well, I'll settle for exploring castles and pretty towns in Germany! ;)
