Is it just me, or does the end of the year seem to be approaching a breakneck speed these days? Between holiday shopping, end of year activities, and all of the holiday parties, I'm sure we all are feeling the crunch of the holiday season.
That said, there's no reason why you can't still celebrate in style, ladies. ;) I'm OBSESSED w/the new Eva Mendes collection at New York & Company, and I love all of the PLUS-sized offerings they've included, especially this 'Lady in Red' outfit!

FIRST OF ALL, can we talk about how awesome this 'Marjorie Wrap' bodysuit is?
Normally, I'm not a bodysuit girl. Because I'm smaller on top, many bodysuits are always too large on the top and wayyyy too small on the bottom.
But not this one, hunney! The color is vibrant, the fabric flows nicely. There's a button in the v-neck (to keep the girls in check ;)) AND the bottom fits my curvy butt easily. I felt like a hot curvy chick in this outfit, lemme tell you!
Next fave- this LINED 'Tyra' pencil skirt that hugs the curves in all the right places.
I rarely (if ever) buy lined skirts. Haven't for years. It's actually a fashion 'pet peeve' of mine, because most lining in plus skirts in my size usually won't even make it past my hips. And, if they did? The skirt was usually super roomy in the waist and way too tight in the hips. (I'm sure my 'big-bottomed' curvy girls know exactly what I'm talkin about ;)).
But that's not the case with this skirt! It's lined, tapered at the waist, and has plenty of room in the hips
to make you feel sooo curvy and confident strolling into the next holiday party!
All in all, I'm really in love with these Eva Mendes pieces, and I'm so excited to see what else I can try from her collection in the future. Finding fun, vibrant, high quality clothing like this for us Plus girls always makes my fashion heart so happy :).
