Happy New Year Lovelies! I have not been keeping you in suspense on purpose regarding the Robert situation. I got really sick and ended up in the hospital for days. I don’t really feel like going into detail right now, but I will be fine. I’m just thanking God that I’m still here. Anyway, I’m easing back into things here on TBGB so I will begin with an update from my California trip and we will pick back up with my dating escapades next week. Thanks for being so patient! xoxo
I’ve been a huge fan of Kiyonna for a long time and as a Plus Size Princess, I give them a lot of props for being a pioneer of stylish, sexy plus size fashion when no one was even thinking about young PSP’s (you can read Kiyonna’s history here).
So after spending two hours in LA traffic, I finally made my way to the Kiyonna flagship boutique in Anaheim, CA. I was really looking forward to spending time with Vanessa, who a lot of you might know from the Kiyonna videos on Facebook. Surprisingly the entire Kiyonna team is lovely and full of energy.
Before I talk about the two dresses I fell in love with, let me say that I don’t consider myself “curvy” or “plump”, I am a big girl! So I never expect plus size dresses to look the same on me as they do when the plus size models are wearing them. But there is something about the way that the Kiyonna dresses are made… they are sized to perfection, so that when a girl like me who has a belly and big boobs tries them on the dresses hit me the same way as they do in the photos on the
models its so refreshing! So for those of you who worry about making an online purchase, if you know your sizes, you will be fine!
But when I tried on the Monaco Maxi, I knew that I had to have it! This is the most flattering maxi dress that I have EVER worn. I’m 5’10 and I can’t stand when a maxi dress barely reaches my ankles… the Monaco Maxi is loooong and comfortable. The other awesome thing about it is that it has sleeves which makes it versatile for summer or winter.
I’ve worn this dress twice now, both times paired with knee high boots (flat or stiletto boots work) I put my hair up and kept the accessories simple with big silver hoop earrings. It was a nice winter BoHo look and I felt like a goddess!
Vanessa said the dress would make me feel like I was wearing pajamas and she was right. Slimming, adorable pajamas that are work or date appropriate… I love it!
