Plus Fashion Show at Macy's with Plus Model Emme

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. 

It's not to often I get to attend a fashion show, and it's even more rare to attend a plus size fashion show. Well thanks to Macy's and Plus Model Emme, I get to do both! Macy's is having a fun free fashion event hosted by Plus Model Emme. If you are not familiar with Emme, she is the worlds first plus size super model. I truly believe Emme, opened the eyes of the fashion world to plus size fashion and women with curves. She has been a major influence on the plus size fashion community around the world. Emme is not only the worlds first plus size super model, but also built a community around positive body image and embracing your curves. We can all use a good role model when it comes to embracing and loving ourselves no matter what size we may be. Don't you agree?

I am excited to be a part of the positive body image movement as well as the plus size fashion community. I've been blogging for 6 years about plus fashion and have seen its evolution from lack luster frocks to stylish trendy pieces.  Not only has the fashion evolved, but so have I along with the plus community. Everywhere you go you see more curvy ladies proudly showing off their style with confidence.  We have more options and places to shop than ever, which makes me very excited! Now, you can be a part of this movement too, on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at Macy's Rancho Cucamonga, CA at 2:00pm. Come meet Plus Model Emme and enjoy a fabulous fashion show, with all the latest trends in plus size fashion.  You can RSVP at for this free event. 

I am looking forward to the plus fashion show with Emme, highlighting the seasons newest looks from Melissa McCarthy Seven7, Calvin Klein, INC, Michael Kors and many more - all for us curvy ladies!  After the show you can stay for a shopping party. You can meet Emme, enjoy refreshments and take home an exclusive cosmetics travel bag with a purchase of $75 or more in the Macy's Woman department.  Plus, let the MyStylists help you find the perfect look and gift for every occasion.  I will be there too, enjoying the fashion show, shopping and even helping you shop!  I'm great at finding the best deals and sales for every budget.

Plus Size Universe: Patchwork Jeans

It's been a minute since I've done a Plus Size Universe feature, but I'm back with one of my favorites...jeans!  In case you haven't noticed from my outfit post on Instagram, jeans are my favorites.  I could live in denim and wear jeans everyday. Sadly I can't really wear jeans to work, so I take full advantage on the weekends.  I love jeans in all styles, washes and finishes.  One trend that isn't really new is patchwork jeans, but I have noticed it's showing up more in plus sizes.  Although plus fashion has evolved and grown in the past few years, it's still taking a long time for trends to trickle down from the runways. It seems plus size woman have to wait for a year of more for certain trends to come in our size.  I had seen patchwork jeans on a few celebs and on other straight size bloggers a year or more ago. I love this look and needed a pair of my own. Unfortunately these style jeans were not easily found in plus size a year ago. I even considered making my own, using an old pair of jeans. I am not much of DIY type so just forgot about it.

Recently I notice more plus size brands and retailers started selling these patchwork jeans.  I recently bought pair and wanted to share the trend, which I still think is stylish. Below are some of my fave looks from some celebrities wearing this trend.  Gwen Stefani is always a favorite of mine and is often seen wearing jeans.  Taraji P. Henson was seen at the airport wearing a pair of patchwork jeans looking very casual and stylish.

Gwen and Taraji are wearing some high end denim retailing for $200 plus.   Although their jeans look very stylish and cool, no way would I pay those prices for jeans.  Especially a very trendy style such as patchwork which I like, but its not a classic style that can be worn for many years.  I like to find much more affordable versions of trendy denim styles like the ones featured.  The pair I bought  the Boyfriend Patchwork Jeans from Old Navy seen above, it retails for about $45 and is currently on sale.  I actually bought a pair from the straight size and not the plus size, which is only sold on line.  I usually get my Old Navy clothes in the "regular" size since some things run a bit bigger. These patchwork jeans are very roomy and have stretch, I didn't have to order the plus size online, so try the sizes in store and see if they work for you too. Another pair I loved is the Cropped Patchwork Jeans from Harper & Liv, they are from Macy's and retail for $59, currently also on sale from $10 off.  I found a few other pairs from other plus size store like Rainbow and Fashion to Figure. This trend is becoming more accessible and affordable in plus size.  

What do you think about patchwork jeans?  
Would you wear them?

Don't Call It A Comeback

Whoa could it be another outfit post in the same month? Yup! I've slacked off way to long on posting outfits, time to make my comeback. Although I never really left, been here since 2009 and don't plan on quitting the blog any time soon. I wasn't really in a fashionable mood for quite some time.  Most of the summer was spent kinda bumming it and no one wants to see my "bum" outfits.  Trust me it's not cute! Now that I've seem to have gotten my fashion mojo back, hope to share more outfit post.  Seems to be what people like to see, on my instagram ootd pictures get the most likes. By the way hope you're following me on instagram, that's where I am most active. Find me under CidStyleFile on IG and Snapchat too!

OK so back to the outfit, its nothing spectacular, but gosh darn it I felt cute.  Isn't that what matters most, how we feel in our clothes.  Sometimes I think my outfits are not special or worthy to post on the blog. Then I slap my self and say hey this is me and my style and that's the whole point of the blog. It's about sharing my style and what I love to wear, some may like it and others may not. Hope to post more outfits and share my style, even if it's simple and casual.  This is me and what I love to wear, sometimes it may be fab and other times not.

I had not been to Torrid in a long time, decided to drop in the other day.  It was my lucky day because they were having an extra 50% off clearance sale.  Woohoo! My 2 favorite things clearance and 50% off, my timing was just right!  I go through periods of time where I shop a lot at certain store.  Torrid use to be a fave, but for a while I honestly wasn't loving what they had to offer.  Lately from what I have seen the styles seem to be improving, or at least appeal more to my style. The clearance racks were over flowing with lots of goodies, it was so difficult to decide what I wanted.  I tried on several things, like a dozen actually, there so many cute clothes.  Well one thing about Torrid clearance, it's final sale and you can't exchange or return. I always make sure to try on clothes when its on clearance, thank goodness I did.  Out of all the items only 2 really fit well and I loved. I bought this top, with the cool cut-out and Tarot graphic, along with a studded belt (wearing it but you can't see it). Spent less than $20 for both, now that's a bargain for Torrid!

I've been trying to be more conscious of only buying clothes that fit me well and really love.  I'm awful about buying stuff cause it cheap, then I don't end up wearing or hating the fit. It's almost embarrassing sometimes going through my closet and finding clothes with tags and never worn. I mostly end up giving stuff away to my aunt, who loves my clothes.  She makes out like a bandit on her visits from Mexico. Sometimes she doesn't even bring lots of clothes in her luggage, because she knows I'll have new things to give. No wonder I am one of her fave nieces, ha ha.  Well at least I'd like to think so.
