Spring Country Chic with eShakti | Sponsored Post

Lovlies! How are you doing? I knowwwww, it’s been too long, I haven’t posted in two months, but fear no more, I’m BACK!

So let’s jump right in! I’m finally employed, with 2 freelance gigs and a part-time job at Starbucks, making my favorite drinks of course and I’m also taking a fashion design class at a community college. As well I’m also in the works of starting my own consulting business, later this year. I guess you could say, that I’m back to being productive!

Honestly I am in a much better place mentally, and spiritually, not just because of the blessings, but because of how I’ve been handling life lately. I’m working on not being so uptight and wanting to be in control so much, and just learning to understand God’s purpose for my life.

Anyway, I was so happy that eShakti reached out to me again, I seriously love everything that they stand for-“Real Clothes for Real Women”. With eShakti, you can custom design your clothes based on your measurements along with adding other features, such as pockets, shorter or longer hems, etc. My measurements looked like this:

So if you have the ability to take your own measurements, or need someone to do it for you, it’s pretty easy to plug them in and save to your account with them. I chose this dress because it’s perfect for the spring season, it’s the perfect length for me, as I’m 5’5, which is pretty average height.

I also adore the off-the shoulder and lace up details, that’s what really attracted me to choose this dress! I can dress it up with heels or dress it down with some cute and comfy sandals.

2014 Plus Size Brand Names You need to know!

I’m extremely pumped about the variety of plus size clothing lines out here for the big girls! This summer, I actually have options to choose from and don’t have to resort to covering up during this dreadful heat. As a curvy woman, I have a hard time trying to find clothes that are cute, fit good and are reasonably priced. What I am sharing with you, is my go-to list of places to shop, hoping you’ll have a fashionable summer as well!

Let’s first start locally, right here in Houston!

The Ultimate Dressing Room

This was my first internship as a sales associate and I loved every minute of it! This particular boutique caters to plus size women and always has unique and stylish clothing for women of bigger sizes. If you’re a fellow Houstonian, stop by and be instantly welcomed by its owner, Sumptuous Sulay; she gives great advice and is honest when it comes to finding the right fit! Tell her I sent you:)

So if you’re ever in need of a bangin outfit for a night out or just looking to spruce up your wardrobe, stop by this plus size boutique, also located inside of The Ultimate Dressing Room. The reason I personally love this boutique, is that I know my sizes will be available and the prices are reasonable! Not to mention the owner below is great at finding great styles!

Nakimuli

This company is based out of Brooklyn, NY and doesn’t skimp on the stylish and sexy! With the bold prints, bright colors and stretch fabric, this is a brand name you want in your wardrobe. I am especially in love with their new swim line, “No Room for Saints”. Can we say FLY?! I’m currently browsing their website for more swimsuits this summer and for upcoming beach trips (I just need another excuse to buy something)  As well, I am also excited that they use all sizes for their models, which makes me feel like I can definitely wear their pieces.

50Limes

I love their philosophy on fashion, “Nothing over $50” and “being fresh with a little edge”. Their plus size category is great for casual encounters with friends or wanting to embrace those curves. With my current dress obsession, 50Limes is definitely the place I turn to find great fits and quality clothing, I encourage you to shop with them! And I can’t forget that “Nothing over $50” concept, that in itself makes me want to shop even more!

I'm so in love with this dress! 50 Limes

Monif C.

It’s Big Girl Paradise here and I am so for it! With her new collection “The Summer of Love”, you are bound to fall in love with your items and possibly someone else too 😉 Monif C.  is also a great brand to have in your closet, because their clothes are great quality and are appealing to look at! Check out some of her newest summer collections!

Forever 21

Forever 21 is my go-to for about good portion of my wardrobe. I love that they actually have a section for us to shop in store, no more drab over here! I also get my jeans from them and have noticed a change in their quality of denim. They are definitely in my shopping budget and have a variety of clothing up to a size 3x! What’s even cooler about this company,  is that their style of clothing changes when you’re in different regions of the U.S! For instance, when I traveled to Chicago last year, I found great items I wouldn’t be able to find back in my Texas home.

Eloquii

Fresh. Chic. Fabulous. Those 3 words basically sum up of how I feel about this clothing line. One of my favorite pieces to have are colored pants, especially the ones that hit at the ankle, they carry these in all sorts of fun colors! With having a bigger bottom, it’s so hard to find something that fits my lower half. Eloquii has also launched their new summer collection too, “East of Eden”. This particular collection gives that feeling of long summer days, taking weekend trips and just relaxing on the beach with some tropical drink in hand. Whenever I think of this brand, I envision a hard-working woman, dressed stylishly, in the freshest of threads. Shop at Eloquii!

MYNT 1792

A “lifestyle brand” based out of NY, creates clothing for curvy women all around the globe. Their specialty to me, is in the “street wear” department, I mean why wouldn’t they be? New York is a huge runway to sport your street chic style anyway. I also love this brand because they partner with top fashion bloggers and other fashionistas, to create clothing that women can actually wear. Their clothing line is geared more towards the city slicker, with a busy schedule and fabulous life!

H&M should definitely be in your closet, I mean they have amazing prices and are perfect for your everyday casual attire. One particular item that I am excited about, is their denim pencil skirt! I am in the process of ordering this now and probably other items too. Just know that this company has a great assortment for your needs and carries a variety of clothing.
