Check Out City Chic at Macy’s for Must-have Plus Size Fall Styles

Featured Looks Sponsored 0 Comments

This post is in partnership with Macy’s and City Chic.

I first heard about plus size Australian brand, City Chic, when I complimented a friend on her dress. It was gorgeous and I hadn’t seen anything like it, so I knew I had to get my hands on their clothing. At the time, I was only able to find City Chic pieces online. (While I love shopping online, I prefer to be able to try on pieces in-store to at least know how the sizing runs.)

Fast forward a couple of years later and now City Chic is available at my local Macy’s store! I’m sure you can imagine my excitement. 🙂

This look that I styled is perfect for Fall. I paired their black and white striped tunic button down blouse with their faux leather leggings. What I really love about this look is how versatile it is. You can wear the tunic as a long blouse, tie it in the front to bring up the hemline and show off your leggings (and maybe even a little skin), layer it under a sweater or jacket, tuck it in or wear it open like a kimono or cardigan…The options are truly endless!

I paired the look with a faux leather jacket and faux suede over the knee boots for a cool, biker-inspired look.

One thing to note about City Chic is how their sizes run. As a plus size babe, I’d never imagine wearing a size Small, but City Chic’s size chart is a little different. I will say that their clothes seem to run very true to size. So, they get an A+ for fit! And now that I can find the brand at my nearest Macy’s store, I’m even more smitten!

Have you ever heard of City Chic? Have you ever tried their clothing? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

Brunch in Brooklyn Feat. Macy’s Tommy Hilfiger Plus Collection

Featured Looks 1 Comments

This post is in collaboration with Dubli.

Hey babes! I’m back with another post about Macy’s exclusive #TommyHilfiger Plus collection. This time, I’m rocking an adorable blue and white collared shirt dress (originally $100, but currently on sale for $60).

I recently wore this ensemble to brunch in Dumbo, Brooklyn during my trip to New York City. It was easy, breezy, comfortable and best of all, I felt so cute!

I paired the dress with my new favorite red heels and a red faux leather jacket. But, truthfully, the possibilities are endless with such a classic piece.

How would you style this dress? Let me know in the comments!

Tommy Hilfiger Plus: Exclusively for Macy’s

Thank you to Macy‘s for sponsoring this post.

It feels like I’m perpetually on the hunt for crisp white jeans. You know, the kind of perfectly white jeans you can pair with a fab top and wear to Sunday brunch. Mid rise. Well-made. Not see-through. Comfortable. Stylish.

Know the feeling?

If so, you can imagine my excitement when I found these straight-leg jeans by Tommy Hilfiger Plus at Macy‘s . They’re perfect for a classic, casual summer weekend look. You can pair them with your favorite statement top like this polka dot blouse I’m wearing. Or florals, stripes, animal print or or or…the combinations are truly endless.

They’re incredibly well-made with some stretch for extra comfort and wearability. They’re my new go-to pair of jeans when I want to look put together without any hassle. And, best of all, I can tell that they’ll last forever!

Check out Macy’s for your one-stop fashion destination and pick up anything you need to put the finishing touches on your look. Visit Macy’s for stylish plus size clothing and come back to share your #MacysLove!

It’s My Birthday So Let’s Celebrate

Featured Lifestyle 0 Comments

There are two great days in a person’s life — the day we are born and the day we discover why. — William Barclay

Today’s a very special day. Yes, today is my birthday. And like on any birthday, I like to think back on the past year: all that I’ve learned, how I’ve grown and what I want to accomplish during the upcoming year.

Last year, I launched this very blog, The Chief of Style, a project I’d had in mind for so long, but was too scared to pursue. I never wanted to put my name on something that wasn’t of the highest quality, so I made excuse after excuse for not actually doing it…until I ran out of excuses.

In July, we went live with something I was proud of. I still have a lot of growing (and perfecting) to do with my blog, my Instagram and my brand overall, but I’m happy with what I’ve done thus far, in under a year, with The Chief of Style.

I’ve also learned a lot about myself this year. After having my heart broken (I mean, completely shattered), I refocused my attention on myself. I became my priority again and focused on loving myself more, just as I am. Instead of picking myself apart, the time I spent looking in the mirror was dedicated to noticing all of the beauty that I saw in the reflection looking back at me. I unfollowed folks on social media whose posts made me feel less than and I began following folks who inspired me to be great and reminded me that I already am. I began really and truly loving myself inside and out. I even gained some weight (thanks to the breakup), but have never loved myself — or my body — more.

And then, I was invited to join Parfait Lingerie’s “Perfect Figure” campaign which was a game changer for me in so many ways. Besides being photographed in my underwear and having those photos shared with the world (literally), through our ongoing partnership where I blog about all kinds of things under photos in their lingerie, I started to reflect on the many ways I wanted to love myself and the reasons why doing so is so critical.

I kind of feel like the last 33 years of my life were a practice run and now it’s time for the real thing. Armed with more knowledge, a lot more experience and a hell of a lot more confidence, I’m ready to take on this thing called life. And I’m so excited to share each and every move with you.

So, please stay tuned, babes!
