Closet Cleanout and an Intro to Swapdom!

 photo ClosetCleanoutSwapdom.jpg
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have caught on that I recently moved into a new place (YAY!). What's not so awesome, is that during the move, I tragically lost about half of my closet space (life is hard, lol), so a thorough closet cleanout was necessary in a major way. While I was flipping through my clothes, I realized just HOW MUCH of my wardrobe never actually gets worn! I'll fall in love with something, buy it, and one or two wears later, it's banished to the corners of my closet to die in favor of something new.
I'm terrible, I know.

ELOQUII is BACK (and better than ever!)

The plus size blogosphere is abuzz with the news that Eloquii has relaunched! If you're new to Eloquii, here's the short and sweet about the brand: Previously owned by The Limited, Eloquii, The Limited's plus size brand, was shut down due to corporate restructuring. Plus size shoppers everywhere were sad/angry/disappointed, and the original team behind Eloquii decided to take over and relaunch with cooler pieces than ever before! (I'm personally a fan of all the faux leather details!)

The company is now employee-owned, which I think is awesome. The coolest part? They'll be releasing new products in limited quantities every few weeks, so there will always be something new and fresh to add to your wardrobe. Can't wait to see where the brand goes! :D

STARS & STRIPES

Happy President's Day! I promise it's just a coincidence that I'm wearing stars and stripes, lol.

WEEKEND WEAR

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Living Doll LA Baseball Jacket

Opted for metal eyelet embellished sneakers and this super cute baseball jacket from Living Doll LA this past weekend! I don't consider myself sporty (at all), but I love adding athletics-inspired pieces to my weekend looks.  They make outfits feels easy, and there really is nothing as comfortable as sneakers! I'm usually a heels or flats kind of girl, but recently I've been craving cool sneaks for running errands without looking like I'm about to hit the gym..

LIVING DOLL LA

I love finding out about Cali-based, plus size designers and retailers, so when Living Doll LA reached out to me about the addition of plus sizes to their shop, I was so psyched! This video of their totally adorable plus size senior designer Christi Raye talking about the line sealed the deal for me. How perfect is that floral bomber at 1:10??? Need it in my life!
