Get the Look: Michelle Obama’s SOTU Narcisco Rodriguez Marigold Dress

No matter your politics, I think everyone can agree that Michelle Obama was a vision in a gorgeous shade of marigold at the State of the Union last night.  Her Narcisco Rodriguez sheath was a bold statement, and she was absolutely radiant in the warm hue.  I immediately looked for similar dresses, and found a great dupe from Kasper, available in plus, for under $50!  This Nippon Boutique dress is similar as well, and is still in stock in size 14W here, and sizes 18-24W here.

The Ultimate Plus Size Holiday Party Guide 2015: The LBD

While it is always fun to rock a spangly sequined dress to a holiday party, sometimes you don't need (or want) that level of glitter.  If you are looking for something versatile enough to dress up or down, a fab little black dress is always a good call.  Look for interesting details and cuts to make this classic anything but basic. I've rounded up my favorites below, along with the accessories to take the look to full holiday-party-festive levels.

OOTD: Fringe Dream

The moment I saw this perfect fringe jacket teased on Mynt 1792's Instagram months ago, I knew I had to have it.  Fringe is one of 2015's biggest trends, and what better application than a classic moto jacket in the hottest color of the season?  I love the drama of the long fringe, and the fact that they did not skimp on it: It goes from sleeve to sleeve, and covers the front and back.  Definitely twirl-worthy!

OOTD: Laced Up

So many of this year's trends are tied to the overarching retro aesthetic that has ruled the runways, and the proliferation of lace up details is just another example.  With an effect that is a strange marriage of hippie and sexy, lace up dresses and tops have a distinctly throwback feel.  I've been keeping an eye out for the right piece, and this marled grey skater dress from Boohoo's plus line got me to take the plunge (literally and figuratively, in this case).

34 Plus Size Jumpsuits for Fall

I am such a fan of jumpsuits - with just one piece of clothing, you're instantly pulled together and fashion forward.  There's a jumpsuit for every style and occasion, from laid back and casual to sleek and formal.  They've even received the Jenna Lyons stamp of approval for the red carpet.  I know from personal experience that the style can be intimidating for the uninitiated, but all you have to do is find one you love and you'll be a convert.  Fit is so important with jumpsuits, so don't be scared to try a bunch on, and send back the ones that don't fit.  Gwynnie Bee is great for this: It's where I got my 70's glam jumpsuit for Halloween(above); and in fact is how I found my first true jumpsuit love, the BB Dakota Adele.
