Plus Size Holiday Dresses 2013

This year, I have holiday party invites from coworkers, friends and bloggers… not to mention I’m singing in a Christmas benefit concert. Needless to say, my Christmas dress rotation has to be on point. So far in I’ve got five dresses on deck, two of them are from  SimplyBe.com.

SimplyBe is one of my favorite plus size fashion stores because they have clothes that fit where I am in life. I want to look cute, I want to stay within my budget and I want clothes that wont fall apart after wearing them once. Icing on the cake is that because they’re a UK brand that ships to the US, I can be confident that other Plus Size Princesses wont have my outfit on at parties.

The two SimplyBe dresses I put into holiday party rotation are this plus size skater dress with a jeweled collar and this plus size bodycon dress that I swear has magical threads because it makes my tummy look flat.

Have you chosen your Holiday Party outfits yet? If not, I’ve got you covered… 1.) Between now and New Years Eve you can get 20% off with promo code 5553 2.) I’m giving away dresses from Simply Be every day for the next three days. Details below!

Plus Size Bikinis & Swimsuits

A few days ago, I attended a dinner to celebrate the launch of GabiFresh’s Fatkini Line for SwimsuitsForAll.com, these gorgeous, high waist two pieces are designed to make a Plus Size Princess feel confident to show off her curves and the suits come in a variety of colors and prints, so much fun!


To be honest, I’m not quite ready to rock a fatkini, but I’ve been scanning through the plus size bathing suit options on the Swimsuitsforall.com site and lots of options that I love including some great suits for when I swim laps.


The AquaBell Chlorine Resistant line, has a few great plus size crossback swimsuit that I ordered in black. This swimsuit is AWESOME for my pool workouts, because it has a crossback that supports “The Twins” and its made from fabric designed to hold up against the harsh chemicals in pool water, so it will last longer.

Because we’re in the middle of #PSPfit bootcamp, I want to giveaway some swimsuits from the AquaBelle collection so that maybe some of you will take up swimming this summer too. These suits go from size 8-34, so there’s something for everyone!

I’ve got five suits to give away, want to win? Check out the info below!
