The loose, off the shoulder design is on trend, and I love a good bell sleeve. This could be worn as a dress on someone shorter than me, but I had to wear it as a tunic or risk indecent exposure! This is just one of the cute selection of plus size tops, dresses and pants that Chic Soul has to choose from!

Fall Fashion With Fullbeauty: Black Dress with Brown Boots

You all know that I'm a huge fan of Fullbeauty.com and love love love that there's one destination that features so many of my favorite brands and some new-to-me brands as well! I'm so happy to collaborate with fullbeauty.com* on a series of Fall Fashion posts, and I wanted to start off with a staple fall outfit -- the dress + boot combo.

How adorable is this True Destiny Black Lighthouse Dress from Fullbeauty.com?! I call it my rick-rack dress because of the fun embellishments on the hem and sleeves. This simple A-line dress is so versatile and perfect for transitioning to fall! It's lightweight with a bit of frill on the 3/4 length sleeve. I love that it hits above the knee on me, since I like to show some leg, but it will look just as cute paired with some leggings!

I can't say enough great things about these Woman Within Janis Leather Wide Calf Boot by Comfortview® in Cognac. They are SO comfortable and the color is so chic and refined! They come in wide calf which is perfect for my plus size ladies who have trouble finding boots that fit! The pebbled leather is durable and looks great with just about anything that you pair it with!

Full disclosure: This dress does NOT come with a belt. I added it to give a bit more definition to my waist. And when you first open the package, the dress might look a little sad and inexpensive, but shake it out, spray it with some wrinkle release and put it on and you'll love it!

Fall Fashion from Chic Soul Online Boutique - PLUS A GIVEAWAY

Hello my curvy ladies! It's officially fall and I'm celebrating by introducing you to another new source for plus size clothing for women size 10-22! Introducing CHIC SOUL Online Boutique! It's a fun little online boutique that caters to plus size women, offering a unique selection of tunics, tops, dresses, and bottoms...and even some shoes and accessories! I collaborated with Chic Soul to bring you two fall looks and to host a GIVEAWAY! Before I reveal those details, let's give some love to this Forget Me Knot Dress in Olive from Chic Soul.

Forget Me Not Plus Size Dress in Olive c/o Chic Soul*

This dress is so fun with the cut out shoulders and deep V in the back with a shoulder tie! And I'm obsessed with olive...which is one of THE colors for fall (isn't it every year though?!). I love how this piece transitions...it's a fall color but in a lighter, floatier material that will still keep you cool as summer temps hold on a few extra weeks! This is technically a dress...but if you're tall like me, you might want to layer it over a tank dress or some skinny jeans like I did here. I also belted it to add some definition to the waist, but it works straight and floaty too. I ordered a 2X and since I'm an apple shape, it hugged just a bit at the hips, so you might want to size up if you want the super casual, slouchy oversized look!

Casually Chic in Universal Standard Plus Size Geneva Dress

Sometimes you just want to throw something on and look epically chic, and OMG, have I found the perfect dress! This Geneva Dress from Universal Standard is so simple...but so unique! I've worn it in two colors -- gray and now black!

This Geneva Dress perfectly represents what Universal Standard is all about -- modern, elevated essentials. I absolutely adore the minimalist tone of their pieces. This dress is made out of the most divine cotton-spandex blend -- it feels luxurious and high-quality and OMG -- it's pill-resistant (which is a huge plus for me, since I'm always toting around heavy bags that make my dresses pill at the hips!). And can we talk about the magical drape of this design? With the high crew-neck, capped sleeves and a asymmetrically curved hemline, this dress is seriously season-less and can be dressed up or down as needed.

A note on sizing: It is absolutely perfectly sized! I'm wearing a M which is an 18/20, so order your real size with confidence! If you have ever wished for something that you could literally throw on and walk out the door and get compliments every step of the way...THIS IS YOUR DRESS. And just wait until you see the rest of the Universal Standard collection...you will swoon!
