3 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt

 

Talbots Plus Size Denim Shirt Three WaysIf you watch my YouTube Channel you may have seen my Dressing Room Confidential video where I discovered that Talbots has some cute stuff for younger Plus Size Princesses. Now that the seasons have changed, I went back and tried on Talbots fall Plus Size collection and I was pleasantly surprised (video below).

Everyone is saying that a denim shirt is the “must have” piece for fall and I just might agree. Plus size denim shirts are hard to find, but I fell in love with the ones I tried on at Talbots. They’re long enough to wear with leggings, cut well through the arms and bust and the cuffed sleeves don’t unroll or become lose after washing. As you can see I’ve been rocking this one non-stop!

p.s. I’m 5’10, but if you’re on the shorter side, Talbots has a petite plus line too…

My 2014 Wide Calf Boot Picks (under $99)

 

Hi CeCe,

Since fall is underway, any recommendations on wide-calf riding boots?

-Maribel

Hi Maribel,

Great question! The wide calf boot hunt is definitely in full effect right now. Living in New York City, my Wide Calf boots must be: Comfortable and Supportive, Fun and Fashionable, Made to last a few seasons and, of course… affordable.

I’ve ordered three pairs of wide calf boots that I’m loving, but here are four more options from brands I trust from past purchases. Hope this helps and let me know what you end up getting!

Relaxed & Cool | Plus Size Casual Linen Pants

The other day on my YouTube channel, I said that I never wear pants because I carry weight in my tummy. The minute I said those words, I realized that I was limiting myself. Do I prefer dresses? Sure! But not wearing pants because I’ve got a full tummy is the same as not showing my arms because they’re big… its a negative way of thinking and it goes against who I want to be as a Plus Size Princess.

So I went online and ordered three pairs of pants. This linen pair is the best! It feels like I’m in my pajamas, but I still feel put together. Best of all, they’re on clearance for $17! Links below…

Plus Size Workout Clothes: My Favorite Plus Size Gym Leggings!

There is nothing more annoying that burning a hole through your leggings. In the beginning of my Plus Size Fitness journey, I’d just buy cheap fashion leggings from wherever. I’d workout in them, work a hole right through the inner thighs and then go buy more (augh!). Over time I learned that there are benefits to ordering plus size workout tights/gym leggings. Its taken some time but I’ve finally got a solid collection of plus size workout leggings. Here are my faves:

CeCe Olisa Plus Size Gym Leggings Plus Size Fitness PlusSizePrincess.com

Gym leggings are usually made of a more slick/slippery material which means they’ll hold up better against inner thigh “chub rub” and last longer. There are also great functional pockets in workout tights that hold things you may need during your workout like keys/phone/lip gloss (maybe that’s just me lol) anyway, if you don’t want to carry a purse, these pockets come in handy. Keeping your fashion leggings and gym workout leggings separate also makes them last longer because you’re not doubling up on usage.

I’m so excited that plus size workout tights are finally starting to come in fun colors/designs. Here’s a quick video lookbook with my five favorite plus size gym tights/leggings.

Let me know which ones you like best?

I carry my weight in my tummy, so I’m picky about my plus size peplum styles. This drop waist peplum cut doesn’t hug my lumps and feels super fresh/fun. If you’re worried about your bum showing, the back is longer than the front.

Definitely never thought I’d throw on a bikini on the internet, but… the draping of this top is great for someone like me who is sensitive about her back fat. lol

I guess birthdays are for new beginnings, evolving and conquering fears 🙂

HeyGorgeous.com used to be madisonplus.com,  so you can find some pieces on both sites:

Summertime Shine #LuminousSkin

I’m switching up my look and enjoying more skin bearing outfits. Last week I remixed one of my favorite skirts for Saturday lunch with Robert.

 I bought this shirt for $6 Here and this skirt for $73 Here

I’ve also been trying different moisturizers to make sure I don’t get a “lizard legs” situation.

Lizard legs = when your shins get really dry.

For me, creamy lotions work well, but when I jump out of the shower, I like to let my skin absorb that water with a with an oil or gel moisturizer. This week I’ve been testing out Jergens Shea Beauty Oil, which is supposed to give skin six times more radiance, sheen and hydration. I like it because its an oil that doesn’t make me look/feel greasy and my skin feels moisturized through the day, so I’m not looking down in the middle of the day and seeing ashy legs!

The oil comes in a bottle that pumps. I’ve spilled baby oil before, so this is a good thing for me. A few pumps of the oil goes a long way and it absorbs really quickly. You can find this Shea Beauty Oil in grocery and drug stores in your area for $9.99. For more info about Jergens

Shopping at Forever21 Plus: Dressing Room Confidential Video

Good News: The Forever21 on 14th street added a plus size section, hooray for avoiding times square!

Bad News: The selection isn’t as big as what they have on 42nd street, BUT I’m hoping that if I keep clearing them out they’ll start stocking more clothes haha

I took my camera into the dressing room with me for a new plus size shopping video. If you don’t have F21 plus sizes in your area, I’ve got links for you below!

This is one of my favorite stores for pushing my own boundaries, so I tried on bodycon, crop tops (and jeggings for the first time ;-))
