OOTD: Jean Jacket and Joggers

One of the many things I love about Carmakoma is that they are not afraid to experiment.  Their minimal black pieces are always amazing, but then they will throw in an unexpected use of color, fabric, or print to mix things up.  These navy floral brocade track pants (!!!) immediately intrigued me, if for nothing other than the fact that I had never seen anything like them before.  I had no idea how I was going to style them, but I knew I had to have them. [Deal Alert: They are on MAJOR sale right now!]

Buying Off Season: Carmakoma Sale

I know this amazing sequined, velvet, strong-shouldered, asymmetrical 80s-esque masterpiece of a dress is not seasonal (unless you are one of my lovely readers from the Southern Hemisphere), but I want to share it today because if you love the designs of Carmakoma but can't the prices, now is the time to shop. Their 60%+ off sales for past season clothes makes splurging on a statement dress like this "Antartica" style much easier to justify.

I’m Hosting a Shopping Party and You’re Invited!

I'm so excited to announce that I will be hosting the Housing Works Fashion Figures event on Thursday, April 16th, from 5-8 PM at their Tribeca location.  I hosted their inaugural plus fashion event last year, and I am so happy to be back for more. Housing Works is just awesome in general (I've attested to my love for them time and again), and last year's event was packed with fantastic deals in plus. This year has donations from personal favorites such as Mynt 1792, Fashion to Figure, NYDJ, and indie label Rue 107 - I am almost as excited to shop as I am to host, provide styling tips, and chat about plus fashion with all you babes! There will be drinks and snacks to nibble on while you peruse, and possible surprises throughout the night.  The event is free to attend and will be a blast.  If last year's crowd is any indication, you'll want to get there early to snag the best picks :) Check out the adorable promo video Housing Works made for the event below, and head to the event page for more info!
