My Style Picks for Skorch Magazine December 2011
With Christmas right around the corner what better time to give Santa your list of all your favorite things that you want. I love this time of year. I’m a beauty & fragrance kinda girl and you can get sets of your favorite scents at the same price you would a single bottle. I personally think that fragrance last longer when you layer it with the shower gel, lotion then the actual perfume. Here are some new scents that I must have:
I love the two trends of faux fur and color-blocking. So when I saw this two-tone faux fur coat from Asos it immediately went on my must have list. $144. Sizes 16-22
The Asos faux fur coat would go great with these H by Halston for Bakers. $160. Sizes 5-11
A lady should always have a great clutch bag. New plus-size line, Eloquii for The Limited, has just the perfect one. I am totally loving this envelope clutch in the black and cream color scheme. $39.90
Now with the holidays right around the corner, every Skorchette must have that perfect party dress. The green Miranda draped jersey gown from designer Monif C. is at the top of my list. The color itself makes a bold statement and you’re sure to turn heads when you walk into the room. $208, Sizes 14/16-22/24
Another great holiday gown is the “Mia” dress from Virginia boutique owner, Cassandra of Curvaceous Boutique. Sequins is a must have this season and the one-shoulder styling is still in for 2011. I definitely have this on my list for Santa too! $159.99, Sizes L-3X
To contour your curves under your form-fitting holiday gown, make sure to wear a great foundation. Australian based plus-size retailer, City Chic, has just launched their new lingerie collection. This thigh-shaper is sure to give you a smooth look under your garment.
My must have holiday coat is this military inspired Jessica London. I love the ivy green color, standing collar and uneven hem. $130 Sizes 12-20
I’m a sucker for jumpsuits. Especially one in a great stretch jersey material. I just feel that a jumpsuit does wonders for a woman with curves. This jumpsuit named “Elite” from Project Runway designer, Qristyl Frazier’s new Epitome collection, is on my must have list as well. It comes in the colors of brown, pink, yellow, white, teal and more and the sizing goes from a 4-22. $200. (Be sure to look out for Qristyl on the show, “All On The Line with Joe Zee”, on the Sundance Channel)
Now don’t ask me why I like this pump but I have always been attracted to the “bold and unique” items. The spikes just gravitated me towards them. These pumps from Bakers are no exception. I know that I probably couldn’t last an hour in them but they are a must have for me. Even if it’s just for a photoshoot. $165, Sizes 5-12 www.bakersshoes.com
What diva doesn’t love her some MAC makeup? Apparently the flyest diva on the silver screen right now is none other than Miss Piggy. The Muppet icon has teamed up with MAC to present her own line. Complete with liner, lashes and eyeshadow, it’s just what you need to complete any outfit on you must have list!
