Another Adorable Look from Gwynnie Bee: Cherry Velvet Adele Dress in Mod Dots

I'm loving the new infusion of adorable pinup, vintage-looking labels in my Gwynnie Bee closet! Cherry Velvet is a great line with fun prints and flattering shapes for plussize girls with a love of pinup looks. This Adele Dress in Mod Dots (GB girls find it here) in this graphic black and white print has an fabulous sweetheart neckline, 3/4 length sleeves and a nipped in waist--with pockets. So cute!

Black and white goes great with a pop of color--these fab melon-orange heels are the perfect color and height. They are INC from Macy's. Other mod-inspired accessories set off this look and make it fun and flirty. 


If you don't know about Gwynnie Bee, you should definitely try it out! It 's the perfect way to try all sorts of looks without the commitment.

A Day at the Beach: Romping in a Retro Plussize Swimsuit from Kiyonna

It's finally swimsuit season in Chicago for real, and I'm celebrating by taking this Kiyonna Sand and Glam retro plussize swimsuit to the beach. In my last swimsuit post, I listed 5 adorable fatkinis, and I included this one from Kiyonna because, even though it's not technically a two piece, it still gives the illusion of a bare midriff...and it's got that awesome retro feel that I love so much!

The all-over ruching and criss-cross front with the mesh insert are details that make this suit stand out, and the color is just the fresh pop of glam for that sand!







Ruching can always be a little temperamental, so play around with it until you get in in a spot that you like! And there's no underwire in this style, so it could present a challenge to chesty ladies who need a bit more support. But if you're looking for a cute, retro swimsuit to romp around the beach in this summer, put the Kiyonna Sand and Glam plussize swimsuit on the list!
