Dots Shopping Trip


have you ever shopped at a dots? i had never set foot in one, and i’d never really heard anyone talk about dots before a month or so ago. the folks at dots reached out to me and asked me to stop by a store in raleigh to shop with a $25 gift card. so, i took the opportunity to stop by and put together some outfits, check out the accessories section, and take a bunch of photos. (shout out to my boyfriend for the excellent help at the “shoot!”)

Eloquii Plus Size Fashion Review and Haul

Screen Shot 2012-12-04 at 5.33.29 PM

raise your hand if you’ve shopped at eloquiiicon. i went to a holiday event sponsored by the plus size brand that’s made by the limited last year, and i was sort of into the pieces that they had. i understood that it was likely they would have things in the future that i would really be into. then, tuxedo-style pants with a pinstripe down the side started to hit stores, and i also really liked the look of longer sweaters, but neither of those things was being done particularly well in plus size. then, eloquiiicon had a HUGE, hyuh-uge sale around black friday / cyber monday. so i decided it was time to take the plunge and order some THANGS at a big discounticon. (check their website for current codes to get discounts as high as 60% off some items!) this is the story of what i ordered – what worked, what didn’t, and what i hope for the future at eloquii by the limitedicon.

Fall 2012 Color Trends: Rhapsody Pastel Purple in Plus Size

Simply Be Duster Coat Lilac Purple Plus Size Rhapsody Fall Pantone Colors

My least favorite of all the colors. Not just the Fall 2012 Pantone colors. But of all the colors, this shade of purple is up there with my least favorite. I’ve never been very big on pastels, and I kind of find them to be puny, but I suppose there are people out there that like them and look good in them … I’m just not one of them. Okay that’s not totally true, I like pastels when they’re in the details, but I just can’t get used to the idea of myself in pastel all over. That’s all.

Anyway, if pastels are totally your thing, then you’re in luck! Because Rhapsody Lilac Purple is one of the colors that’s officially a part of the 2012 Pantone Colors for Fall. There are some plus size retailers who are using this shade of purple as the main color – not just an accent. In this post, I’m giving you the best of plus size “rhapsody.”
