How to Wear a Statement Tshirt: Notorious RBG

Plus Size Blogger Amber from Style Plus Curves in a Notorious RBG TshirtI'm so not a tshirt kind of gal, but sometimes one comes along that makes a ridiculously awesome statement and you just HAVE to have it. Case in point: this Notorious RBG tshirt from Spreadshirt. Do you have any idea how much of a badass Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg actually is? I just finished reading the BEST book called Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik. I couldn't put it down...every page revealed another fascinating and fantastic layer to RBG's unapologetic and fierce life-long fight for women and civil rights. It's a poignant and passionate glimpse into a remarkable woman and her career...and the book itself is a perfect blend of chatty insights and hardcore biographical facts. Seriously...I loved the book, and was so inspired that I HAD to have a tshirt.

Red Lips, Big Hips: A Funky Valentine's Day Look

Read my lips! Embrace your quirkiness this Valentine's Day! Bring out your graphic tee and get our your harem pants on. Wear your red lips and your high heels and don't forget your sassy fresh attitude! This Lip Print top is actually a fabulous bodycon dress from Boohoo Plus that I bought last year. Unfortunately, it's not available any more, but I still pull it out when I really want to make a statement! This year, I found these awesome City Chic Wrap Front Harem Pants at Nordstrom and this funky, fabulous V-day look was born!

Modern Office Classic: Plus Size Peplum and Pencil Skirt

The day they brought the peplum back in style, was a day that will go down in plus size fashion history! I know that some of you never saw the appeal, or are perhaps sick of it already...but I am a die-hard fan! And when I see fresh and modern takes on this classic shape like this Finn Abstract Peplum Top from Fashion to Figure, my soul rejoices a little more. From the bold, colorful paint brush print to the peek-a-boo detail at the neck...this peplum top is so fresh it hurts! And when you add a little sex appeal in the form of this Kaira Faux Leather Midi Pencil Skirt and a pop of Cherry Red Prynn Patent Tote, you've got a fabulous twist on an office wear classic silhouette. I'm in LOVE!!!

Plus Size Jumpsuit and Faux Leather Blazer from Fashion to Figure

If you saw yesterday's post, you know I've been collaborating with Fashion to Figure to bring you 3 perfect transitional outfits! It's still freezing cold here in Chicago, but most of the country is starting to thaw out...and jumpsuits are perfect to transition to spring! This Black and White Wren Striped Jumpsuit from Fashion to Figure is super comfortable -- made out of a loose knit that drapes over your curves. It's sleeveless, so throw on a light layer like this Sloane Coated Blazer when you're outside...and if you get warm, just slip it off. The stripe of the jumpsuit is pretty bold, so I played it down with some ladylike accessories -- layers of pearls and this Lucian Color Block Snake Clutch took this look from playful to classy!

Check back tomorrow for my last outfit post of this series!

Plus Size Red Peplum Top and Skinny Jeans from Fashion to Figure

I found the most adorable plus size red peplum top at Fashion to Figure! If you haven't heard of this retailer, you need to check it out immediately. Trendy, fun pieces at truly affordable prices. It's fast fashion, so items turn over quickly and there's always something new. Like Forever 21, you'll find unique clothes that push the traditional envelope for plus size gals -- hemlines are higher, necklines are lower and prints and materials are more daring than other plus size retailers. I'm thrilled that I get to work with them on a series of 3 posts this week. And first up is the perfect cute and casual look -- a red peplum top and skinny jeans with leopard details! Perfect for Valentine's Day, but also great for all occasions throughout the year!

The peplum top fit perfectly, with a nice elbow-length sleeve and adorable bow tie. It's the perfect color red too! The Skinny Jeans are fantastic. If you're on the larger side of a 2x and usually wear a size 18, I would size up to a 20 in the pants. I wanted them to be skinny, but not too tight and the size 20 fit perfectly. And can we talk about the great patent leopard clutch and braided gold necklace? Fab accessories that really set the outfit off!
