OOTD Double Feature> Simply Be

I recently made 4 purchases at Simply Be USA... Ladies, I have to say.  I am obsessed.  I was obsessed when I was in England and now that it is available in the States...I am so happy.  The big pro about Simply Be is the sizing.  They go up to a 28 and it fits like a 28W not a 28 Jr.  The other HUGE pro is all the fricking cute stuff! It takes a little bit longer to arrive but who cares.  

My first outfit pic is what I wore to the amazing Ninja Betty and the Nunchix show.  All the greats were there...Tracy from Domino Dollhouse/Chubble Bubble Blog, Nikol from Turquoise and Tangerine, Joy Nash from Fat Rant, Frankie Sin, and all of our husbands.  The show was at cool flamenco bar in LA called El Cid (fat friendly). It was a great time and the Nunchix killed it! I unfortunately did not take proper outfit pictures that night.  BUT I did snap a couple inside.

I wore my amazing new high lo shirt from Simply Be. I couldn't be happier with the shirt.  It is a great fit and so versatile.  I could zip the shirt all the way up and wear it to work or unzip it a bit and wear it out.  I paired the skirt with a sequin black skirt and my dolce vita tap shoes.

The next outfit I wore to Mother's Day Brunch.  I have been wanting colored jeans for a while and Simply Be has the best colors! I know I went with red and everybody has red, but I love red and I love wearing red I thought I would see how they fit and if I like them, I would get more colors.  I ordered the pants in a 28.  I always order up especially in pants, because I have a big belly and hips. On these pants, I should have ordered my actual size and in pants I am usually a 24 or 26.  As you can see from the pics, the pants were pretty big on me.  Not jeggingish (new word) at all.  The waist band is great and has a bit of elastic for ease of wear and the legs are stretchy.  Needless to say, I am psyched that I have these pants.

I paired my ASOS high low top with the pants and the same necklace as the night before...oops. The ASOS top is also a bit big.  I know in the pics, it looks a bit tentish but I kind of like the oversized look.  Let this be a lesson to anyone skeptical about ordering from ASOS...yes they only go up to a size 22, but the clothes run big. I also wore my new Lane Bryant gladiator comf!
