Anna Scholz @ La Grande Dame

I try not to subscribe to the rules. You know the ones specific for the larger woman. Don’t wear prints, stripes or patterns. Don’t be too colorful. Wear black constantly. Black is great but but breaking the rules can be awesome.

That is exactly why I love these two pieces by Anna Scholz available at La Grande Dame.

The first is a long, belted, striped cardigan. I would wear it with dark-wash jeans and a soft pashmina.

($99.99)

The second piece is a cotton – cashmere, color block wrap dress. For coverage I would either wear it with a light layering tee or a turtleneck.

($99.99)

Modest Find: Tie Dye Maxi Skirt

I adore this tie dye maxi skirt from Evans.

I think it would be great paired with a black tank, jean jacket, burgundy scarf for color, peep toe black wedges (love those!) and a flash of silver bangles. How would you style it?

Modest Price: Fashion Bug (yes Fashion bug)

Moving from NYC to a small town taught me a few things. I had to cook at home more.

AND I had to find fashion inspiration wherever I can. I know that some style lovin’ girls have issues with Fashion Bug but I say don’t allow past prejudices to get in the way of your style.

One thing that I love about FB besides the prices is that they have a variety of sizes within one single store. I like the idea of going with a smaller girlfriend & being able to shop together.

Here are some cute (under $30) dresses that I have my eye on:

A Floral Skirt Dress

A Tiered Chiffon Dress

A Floral Cummurbund Dress

So, what do you think about these FB looks? Would you buy them?

Modest Find: Get Fancy in Igigi

Igigi is a go-to place for the curvy-plus sized girl. I love their separates but their dresses are simply A-mazing.

This dress gestures towards both the brooch and asymmetrical trends that are all the rage. I’m known to rock a brooch on my hijab, trench coat or sweater so I’m loving this dress in beautiful amethyst.

I’ve had my eye on this jewelled number for a while now. It also comes in black.
