Day-to-Night Plus size IGIGI Garnet Dress
Finding plus size dresses that transition for both work and party is always a challenge. This beautiful Garnet wrap dress from IGIGI does just that.
I’ve styled it here as I wear it for work with tights, simple jewelry and my great Vince Camuto bag that fits a iPad or laptop. To switch it up for a party or for cocktails, just add a fun jacket and a bold necklace.
I love wrap dresses for the office. They’re flattering and easy to wear and I always feel pretty in them. They’re good for business casual and business professional environments.
Also - since I’ve had folks ask about it, I do really love the look of peeptoe shoes with opaque tights. As long as they’re a different color than the shoes!

Sweater Dress and shopping in Chicago
Shopping during the holidays can be a little much for me (I get crazy bad anxiety in crowds), but I wanted to support some local shops on Shop Local Saturday. So I ventured out in this warm H&M sweater dress I’ve owned for ages and this lovely TwoJ’s Fencer Jacket and my super comfortable boots. Shopping was a huge success - I got a few locally made letterpress cards, and a few small gifts for my family.
What local/small businesses are you shopping at this year? I recommend the great businesses listed on my Logan Square post. In the next few days, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite etsy and online shops!

The Autumn Leaves the Autumn Dress
The time has changed, leaves are falling - it’s my favorite time of year. And how pretty is the world coated in yellows, reds and golden browns? I’m keeping warm - enjoying drinking tea with lots of sugar and cream. Like I do.
This long-sleeved black dress is a perfect LBD for cooler weather. It pairs perfectly with warm tights, a velvet tassel scarf and a great jacket. This is a great basic that can be worn so many different ways.
