Outfit of the Day: Cold Shoulder Avengers Dress from Torrid

While I continue my recovery from knee replacement, I wanted to keep putting up some inspirational outfits of the day.

The latest is a cute comfy cold shoulder Avengers dress from Torrid.

I paired this with a corset belt, also from Torrid and Fila sneakers.

The weather has turned colder, but this dress will still be a great choice when paired with leggings and a pair of tall boots.

Interview with the Plus Size Nerd

I recently had the opportunity to sit down (via zoom) with the Plus Size Nerd aka Nancy Basile, and have a chat about body confidence, body positivity, and about my new book.

As always, she is a joy to speak with! She knows her stuff, and wants the same things as I want, which is for plus size nerds everywhere to feel confident and positive with themselves. You are great right this very second!

Please enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Adventure to Knotts’ Berry Farm for Taste of Falloween

Recently, I had the rare adventure out with my boyfriend, Bill, to Knotts’ Berry Farm for their Taste of Falloween Event.

Taste of Falloween is a food festival held at Knotts outdoors. All of the rides were closed, as were most of the shows. The main stage, however, had some bands and magicians. The event was set up with countless tables and chairs, so you could sample the food and socially distance. When you were walking around, masks were required. A temperature check was also done on entry to the park. So, long story short, we felt very safe to attend.

Unlike Knotts’ Scary Farm, which was canceled due to COVID, this event is all ages. Like Knotts’ Scary Farm, this event was costumes encouraged, with some of the usual restrictions.

The food was amazing, and we had a great time! It was so nice to get out and enjoy a Halloween event!

The Ghost Town Alive characters of Calico were about, but on balconies or appeared in upstairs windows to maintain social distancing. Camp Snoopy is open for trick or treating only, no rides were operating, but their were some Peanuts characters in their Halloween best to entertain us as well.

I wore my Haunted Mansion dress from Disney Dress shop. The cardigan, hat and shoes are from Amazon. Pins from Wish. Click on links to buy.

Until next time…

Outfit of the Day: Classic Monster Skirt from Torrid

Our latest outfit of the day is to help you get ready for the spooky season.

This skirt from Torrid features the classic movie monsters of Universal Studios. I love how companies have been re-embracing the classics when it comes to Halloween. I grew up watching these movies on “Sci Fi Theatre” back in Arkansas in the olden times, and I absolutely love them.

The skirt is made from scuba, so it holds it shape nicely while being stretchy and comfy. The sweatshirt is from Target. I absolutely love the puffy sleeves on this shirt. It gives this very casual shirt a very fancy feel to it. Click on the links to buy.

Just as an fyi, Unique Vintage also has classic movie monster wear for this Halloween.

Happy Shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Halloween Dresses from Rosegal

Our next outfit of the day, or outfits of the day, come from Rosegal.com.

Rosegal (and DressLily) have tons of inexpensive options for standard and plus sizes. It is a great place to shop for seasonal outfits, including these cute dresses I found.

First up is this hi-low celestial dress. The front is very short, so I would advise wearing leggings with it. I paired it with a cute vintage-inspired cardi from Amazon. Click on the links to buy.

Both sites run very, VERY small. So, please check the sizing with your body measurements and not what size you usually wear. Example is that both of these dresses I got in a 5xl. I usually wear a 2xl or 3xl, depending on the brand.

This next dress is so adorable, I will be wearing it almost daily until Halloween. The print is just so darn cute! Click on this link to buy. I also paired this one with the same cardi from Amazon, but in a pumpkin color. Belt is from Torrid.

In addition to the small sizing, a lot of the waistlines tend toward a more empire waist, just as an fyi. Both of these dresses fell on my natural waist, so that was also a pleasant surprise.

It takes a couple of weeks for orders to arrive, so I’d go ahead and get your shop on for Halloween now!

Happy Shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Blue Front-Knot Dress from Walmart

Our next outfit of the day comes from Walmart.

This front-knot style dress and shirts have been spotted everywhere lately! In addition to being on-trend, this dress is a comfy t-shirt dress that can be dressed up and down, depending on the function you are wearing it to.

I also love the color! However, if you don’t like the color, it is available in 12 different colors!

Pick up your own dress here. I paired it with a hat from Target, pentagram necklace from the Ren Faire (buy a similar one here), shades from Five Below and boots from Lane Bryant.

I wore this all summer with sandals and cute straw hats, but as you can see here, I’m getting you ready for Halloween!

Happy Shopping
