Every week, we will feature a blogger that we think is worthy of a spotlight. This week, we’d like to introduce you to Sandra of La Pecosa Preciosa.
Sandra is a plus size fashion blogger based in NYC, who describes herself as a “little girl wrapped in a grown woman’s body”. Her style is feminine and effortless. We love the fashion diversity she shows on her blog and she knows how to perfectly show that diversity without losing her true style. She can show you a chic office look one day and then a casual denim look the next day. She’s not afraid to rock bold prints and pair that with everything from a sophisticated blazer to a fun tulle skirt. She perfectly represents the everyday woman who is a career woman and mom that loves fashion and dressing up in outfits that fit her lifestyle.
She knows how to dress for her body shape and she is a master at choosing what colors and prints look well on her. We love how she pairs solid colors with prints and how she always manages to have a playful vibe in what she wears.
We also love that she is not afraid to say publicly that she is frugal and many of her outfits are affordable and accessible. She proves that shopping on a budget doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style and not look good. She shows that you can be frugal but look like you spent some major dollars on an outfit. Her blog is not just one to peruse for fashion inspiration. It’s also a shopping guide for many of us who are looking for great fitting pieces on the cheap.
As she says on her blog: “I know that plus size clothing can tend to be on the pricier side but I’ve been able to obtain a great wardrobe with smart shopping.” We love it!
“As a woman in her 40’s – yes, I’m 40! – I like to keep my style classically elegant with a chic edge to it but with an occasional fun and flirtiness.”
Sandra’s favorite retailers/brands/designers:
“Some of my favorites are Forever 21, Torrid, ASOS, Fashion to Figure and Eloquii.”
Sandra’s favorite trends/pieces this season:
“I’m not one to follow trends too often unless it’s something that I can transition from season to season – that’s the frugal side of me. But there are a few I do love such as crop tops, floral and graphic prints, midi and skater skirts and jogger/harem pants.”
Sandra’s Fashion Tips For Fall and Beyond:
“I honestly believe that it’s so important to find out what body type you are. Once you figure that out, the rest will come easy. Also, wear what makes you feel good about yourself and not what society deems fit for us plus size women to wear. If it makes you feel happy, then wear it!”
