Plus Size Fashion Line // Kristin MilesThursday, March 01, 2012
While in LA, I made a point to stop by and meet the owner of the plus fashion line "Kristin Miles" (formerly known as Missphit), Yul Kwon. I've known Yul for what seems like 20 years! He's always been a supporter of Skorch Magazine and there's just something that always pulls me to the line. It's so flirty, romantic, worldly and yet classic....pieces that you won't find anywhere else. It's obvious they pay close attention to detail and fabrics and most importantly, cut. But, you can also tell they don't have a big marketing team since you rarely see them online!! :( Kills me when I see a solid line not getting the buzz they deserve online.
From their website: Entrenched in the heart of L.A.'s rising world fashion scene, Kristin Miles designs solely for the fashion forward girl who seeks the curvy plus size fit. Our styles come from our talented team of designers who constantly search the world for ideas and inspiration. The fit comes from 24 years of design and manufacturing experience for the Plus size woman. Kristin Miles emphasizes quality with a designer's eye for details.

|These skirts were the first for Kristin Miles, but I think they are a home run and hope they do more!! I am in love with the bright chiffon pleated skirt. Link to the orange skirt online. Link to the yellow skirt.|
|They also play with fun prints and beading, loving this top.|
|One of the things I love most about Kristin Miles is the attention to detail. Like the buttons, shoulders, belts and more. Link to this dress on Kristin Miles store.|
