Why?Melissa McCarthy Seven7 is the only reason I’ve dared to work more pants into my wardrobe! As an oval shape, finding pants that fit can be infuriating. It’s so rare that I wear them that my friends act amazed when they see me in them. I’ve added printed pants, jeans, and even shorts to my closet recently – all from Melissa McCarthy Seven7. I also love the loose, flowy style of the tops – completely opposite of what I’ve consistently worn the past several years. Since so few companies offer anything above a 24, I had given up that I’d ever find a true oversized, flowy garment presented in a trendy way. Not so anymore!
If I ever need an outfit to make me feel great, I will automatically grab one of the many Kiyonna dresses in my closet. From matte jersey to full lace, their dresses never disappoint. They are easy to wear, fit impeccably, and never go out of style.
I was so excited when Eloquii started expanding sizes on some of their items, because I’ve always been right on the edge of being able to wear them. If I want pieces that are a little more “of the moment” without being too trendy, Eloquii is where I’ll search. I’m also an unabashed lover of neoprene (perfect combo of comfort, stretch, and easy care), and they use a lot of it in their clothes.
For fun and flirty styles, I look to City Chic. Their prints are always fun and they have a couple of cuts that I’ve learned fit my body well: the zip front tunics and fit and flare dresses with just a touch of crinoline at the hem. Sometimes the waists are tight on me without stretch, but I just pay attention to the fabric before purchasing.
I don’t buy a lot from ASOS CURVE, but the items I do purchase end up being favorites in my closet. Two of my favorite items in my closet are ASOS CURVE, and were purchased 3+ years ago. Great prices as well.
