OOTD: My CBS Interview Outfit by Ashley Stewart, Just My Size and Simply Be

Yesterday I did a pre-taping for a CBS News “Kids Fall Fashion” segment which will air on “Virginia This Morning” on Monday, September 12th at 9:00am. I styled three child models in outfits that are befitting for the upcoming fall season. For my interview I wore a faux leather vest from Ashley Stewart, palazzo pants from Simply Be and a belt from the new Just My Size line for Wal-Mart. 

I’ve had this vest in my possession now for a few weeks and had prepared to wear it on the interview last week. But due to the hurricane my segment was postponed and that’s why we had to do a pre-taping yesterday to squeeze me back into the schedule. So I’d been waiting to wear this piece for a minute now. I first saw it grace the runway during “Full Figured Fashion Week” in June and knew I had to have it. I even blogged on it being a must have for my Skorch article this month. It is curve hugging and feels great on but be mindful of getting your proper size as mine was a little full and showed my bra straps on the side. But that’s only because I wore mine without a shirt underneath. You can also style it with a long-sleeved shirt and be just fine.

The vest comes with a black belt but the plus-size company, Just My Size, is debuting a new belt collection so they sent me a couple for review. I decided to swap out the belt that came with the vest for my new JMS animal print one. The belt collection from Just My Size  is part of a test market, and will be available exclusively at 75 select Walmart stores for $12 in sizes 1x-4x. You have to try out their belts. I was pleased at how it complimented the vest and made the outfit complete.

Another fall fave this season are palazzo pants. I had Simply Be to send me this pair for review last month and I’m not disappointed at all with the fit. There’s a slit on the side of them so that was perfect for showing off my shoes. They are made of a fluid-jersey material and fit perfect for my height.  I topped it all off with my famous Sam Edelman spiked “Lorissa” heels and was CBS fab for the day!
