Hi beautiful souls!
Hoping you all are having the most beautiful week! Today I’m coming to ya with another fashion focused post! A few weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to attend the grand opening of the Catherines Plus Size Store in Capitol Heights, MD. I was able to get a sneak peek at their newest line and meet so many new D.C. bloggers, stylists, and influencers. It. Was. Amazing. I mean obviously it was great because of the bougie/fabulous experience, but also it was so beautiful witnessing Catherines grow as a company! I’ll be honest…I really didn’t think Catherines was a place I’d shop. I always saw them as a store for older women to shop, so naturally I attended the event with no intentions of wanting to take home at least half the store (RIP bank account). Let me just tell you…Catherines is no longer the place where your mom shops. Their new Black Label and Curvy Collections are LIFE. I’d describe them as trendy, versatile, made with genuine quality, and decently affordable. If you want to check both lines out, click the links at the bottom of this post.
Okay so I’ll just cut to the chase…the real reason I’m hyping Catherines up is not only because I fell in love with their new look, but also because I have exciting news to share! I’ve been asked to collaborate with them and share three different gorgeous pieces with you! Over my next few posts, I’ll be sharing pictures and details about each item. I’m so excited for y’all to see these staple looks, and give you the opportunity to learn more about the revamping of Catherines!
So the first item I’ll be sharing is this GORGEOUS olive green tulip pencil skirt. First of all, olive green is the most essential fall neutral color in my closet these days, so of course I was stoked to see this arrive. It’s so soft, fits perfectly (though I could have went down a size for a more “going out” look), the quality is so on point, and it hugs every curve!
I decided to pair the Surplice Skirt from their Curvy Collection with a baby pink body suit from Charlotte Russe and brown riding boots from Torrid. I was inspired to find a look that I could both wear to work but also wear out after. That’s the beauty of investing in quality, versatile pieces like this! You’re going to wear them over and over and feel bomb as hell doing it! I definitely did 🙌
Comment below letting me know what ya think of this look or how you’d style it differently!!
Thanks for reading lovelies, may the sun shine on the rest of your week!
