I have received dozens of requests to do a post on how to select flattering crop tops.  Crop tops are one of my wardrobe favorites, so this is a topic that I am more than happy to discuss. I also have a post on How To Make The Crop Top Trend Work For Your Body Type, so be sure to check out that one too.  Finding the correct crop top should be based on your body type.  It is important to understand what style of crop top may best suit your figure.  My general “rule of thumb” is to always wear a high-waisted bottom, unless you do not consider your midsection to be a problem area.  Now, let’s talk about crop tops!

Gap Maxi Dress (Get it HERE)  I wore this to the Celebrate My Size Expo and I loved the Town Hall Meeting that featured an influential panel of plus size women.  This is the perfect style to pair with the Fit For Me Microfiber Boxer Briefs.

The Team Fit For Me Table at Fashion Showcase

 

If you follow me on  Instagram you already know that I traveled to New York City for FFFW last week and I had a blast!  Full Figured Fashion Week is a week-long series of events comprised of fashion shows, networking events, and workshops, that encourages women to embrace their curves.  The Seventh Annual Full Figured Fashion Week Finale Showcase took place on Saturday night and it was an amazing fashion show!  Fruit of the Loom’s Fit For Me line was the premier sponsor for FFFW and the models really showed out as they strutted beautifully down the runway in Fit For Me.  The showcase featured a plethora of designers and the newly revamped Fit For Me line.  As you know, I had the opportunity to serve as a Fit For Me Blogger Ambassador and it was an amazing experience attending events with them all week!

CHARRIOL BANGLEMANIA Collection

I partnered with the brand to write this article, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

 

I am currently in the process of upgrading my jewelry style, so I am finally determined to master stacking bracelets because this trend it is here to stay.  My overall style is classic with an edge.  I love many types of jewelry, but I am always afraid to over do it.  This trend is not so scary and stacking bracelets are a great way to add a personal touch to shirts, blazers, workwear and your evening wear, and the luxury jewelry brand Charriol is currently providing me with some major inspiration as they get ready to release their new Banglemania Collection.
