a maxi obsession

Sunday, June 03, 2012

As we ramp up for what to wear to NY Full Figured Fashion Week, I want to thank my sponsor again - Torrid I heart youuuuuuuu :). LOL To think that in 2004 I worked at Torrid part time at my local mall to get to understand the retail business, maybe I'd start a plus fashion line someday and never did I imagine that TORRID would choose me to go to NYC to be their official fashion correspondent. So. Surreal. I don't partner with TORRID, or any other company for that fact, just for quick $, I choose my sponsors and select them because even if I had no blog, no magazine, no readers - I'd still be shopping there. 

This is why this stuff excites me! Now, let's talk maxi dresses. I think a maxi dress can look good on any body for any occasion. Plus, they are so comfortable! My favorite types are the ones that accentuate the bust with ruffles or an extra layer and allow for a great skinny belt. While shopping at Torrid.com for what to wear at FFFWeek I found 4 maxi's that made me swoon. I did choose one - can you guess which??! :)

What dress do you think I'll be wearing in NYC? Tell me! Tweet / Facebook / or Comment.


Love. Love. Love.
