In my tireless devotion to bring you all the information you need on everything, I have tried some looks that I thought I would share. Keep in mind, this is all coming from what we are calling a 'curvy' girl (a piece of me died when I typed that-- you're welcome), so if you are a stick, these are not necessarily going to be tips that apply to your bony ass. JK NO BODY SHAMING. GO ON WITH YOUR SKINNY SELF.
There is a whole lot of Eileen Fisher happening here. This may be a sign of me being old, but it is also a sign of me being a classy broad, so don't hate.
The Fisher Project Garment Dyed Stretch Skinny Jeans
So, I ended up returning these. While they are great in theory, and on the model pictured above, I found them to be less than flattering, specifically on thighs. NOPE.
The Fisher Project Slouchy Tapered Leg Silk Pants
It literally causes me physical pain to tell you that I returned these pants. When I purchased them, I knew that based on price ($258!!), I would only keep them if I was #dbsobsessed with them in every way possible. I am weird about pants and it is rare for me to find a tailored pair I like. So, if I find a dreamy pair, I am willing to invest and take incredible care of them.
When these arrived and I tried them on, I thought I found the one, the holy grail of pants. They looked KILLER and could not be more comfortable. I wore them out one night, and even though the pants were super loose on every part of my body (could probably have gone down a size), there was a hole in the seam in the back when I got home. This was a night out that consisted of sitting for about 1.5 hours. If a pair of pants it so loosely sewn that it cannot handle that, it just isn't going to work for an LTR. Sorry, boo. You have been returned, AND I AM REALLY SAD ABOUT IT.
The Women's Vince Camuto Surplice Blouson Dress, which comes many colors, as well as in regular, petite and plus sizes, is a total winner. I ended up buying both of the colors above, and wish more than anything that I could find the green one, because I would be getting numbers left and right in that thing...
While I do wish it showed a bit more cleav, it has the following going on for it:
Sleeves that are good rolled up or down
great with tights or without
Without a doubt, #dbsobsessed. Search around for this one. It is not in a lot of stores anymore, but you should be able to find it somewhere. If all else fails, check Threadflip (more to come on that one, beeteedubs).
Update: I found the green dress! Stay tuned for how it looks when on...
Eileen Fisher Slouchy Ankle Pants
Another option that comes in every size you can think of. I liked the pants, but they too were returned. Why? Because they were $138 sweatpants. Naw dawg. NAW.
Lauren Ralph Lauren Polka Dot Split Neck Dress
You guessed it, available in regular and plus! This one is a WINNER! Flattering, functional throughout many seasons, great with sleeves down or rolled, and good with a variety of shoe types. 100% #dbsobsessed. I got it at Nordie's, but since they do not seem to have it anymore, the link above is for Macy's, who currently carries it.
