For the SmartGlamour Holiday presentation at a LES gallery, I went with a fun dress from one of my favorite plus size labels, Carmakoma.  The loose shift dress silhouette kept the heart print from feeling too twee, and tights and ankle boots made it winter ready.  My only gripe with the dress is that it wrinkles after a normal day of sitting at a desk, but it nonetheless pulled in tons of compliments.

Have you tried Carmakoma yet?  If you are unsure of your fit in the brand, now is a great time to give them a shot, either through Gwynnie Bee (like I did), or ASOS (which also offers free returns).  If you know your Carmakoma size, this is the time to order straight from their site, where the prices tend to be lower than ASOS, and they are currently offering free shipping with no minimum for the holiday season!
