At Home Fitting Room: Dresses & Bottoms

In today's post Hailey reviews dresses and bottoms from a variety of brands. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #LaneBryant #Eloquii #XOQ  #Catherines #HotTopic #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #plussizeclothing #fittingroom

I recently shot a lot of pieces for upcoming At Home Fitting Room posts.  You'll be seeing them broken up into three categories to make my life easier.  Today, I am showing you dresses, a skirt, jeans, and a couple pairs of shorts that I've purchased over the last eight months actually.  I don't always get a timely chance to style items and take photos for the blog.  Even when things are no longer available, I still think showing you what an item looks like and how it fits on a non-model body is still important.

The usual spiel: I shop too much and want to use my experience to help you navigate brands and sizing.  Let's get to it!

KATU Afternoon Live Companion: Everyday Cosplay

In today’s KATU Afternoon Live Companion post, Hailey shares her tips for Everyday Cosplay.  Learn the best places to shop for cute plus size clothing that represents your favorite pop culture interests, with inspiration on creating character looks from your closet. - DivineMrsDiva.com #AfternoonLive #KATUAfternoonLive #Torrid #HotTopic #HerUniverse #ThinkGeek #portland #psblogger #everydaycosplay #plussizecosplay #cosplay #fangirl

Today, I'm back on KATU Afternoon Live with tips for finding your Everyday Cosplay.  This includes places to shop for geek-centric clothing inspired by your favorite fandoms, and inspiration for putting together character looks from items in your closet.

With Rose City Comic Con coming up in a couple of weeks, I have been thinking about what I am going to wear.  But also, it can be really hard to find plus size options for geekwear, fandoms, and pop culture interests.  Torrid has been keeping my geeky heart afloat for a while now.  Most official fan stores don't have anything above a 2X.  I want you to know your options; and I want to see more plus size geeks reppin' their interests at these cons!

What I Wore on Vacation: Victoria, British Columbia

Hailey shares her Victoria, BC vacation wardrobe, with reviews and fit notes. – DivineMrsDiva.com #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #roadtrip #canada #britishcolumbia #victoria #victoriabc #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual

I'm finally bringing you a little glimpse of our end of May vacation to Victoria, British Columbia. Life has been so busy and hectic that I haven't found too much time to work on vacation photos.  I'm going to attempt to go backwards in filling you in on all the trips I have yet to tell you about - Victoria, the birthday beach trip, New Kids in Seattle, Hawaii, Newport.  I have so many photos to work on and so much to do.  Life gets hectic again starting this weekend, so I will be doing my best to maximize my time.

So first, I'm going to show you what I wore in Victoria.  Since this was partly a road trip, I didn't need to pack as minimally as possible, though I did try to challenge myself on limiting certain items.  I felt I did a good job at taking things I could wear multiple times, though there wasn't a particular color scheme, which is also helpful for packing. Without further ado, I present you with my vacation style once again.

What I Wore: Cherry Red

In today’s post, Hailey reviews this comfy yet chic ensemble from Torrid. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #TheseCurves #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #summer #spring #coldshoulder #offtheshoulder #softpants

Some posts are just meant to be short and sweet.  This is one of those posts.  I've been working through some issues, depression, that kind of thing this week. Well, really the last few weeks.  I'm starting to feel more like myself again today.  What have you been up to?

I've been wanting to pair together the top and pants in today's post for a while now and finally found an opportunity to do so!  I wore this look out to a comedy show, where Sean and I saw James Adomian while he was in town for the Portland Queer Comedy Festival.  I love this look and have donned it a few times since.

Reviewing Kiyonna's Glittering Affair Wrap Dress + KATU Afternoon Live: Special Occasion Dresses

In today’s post, Hailey is ready for any party or event you want to throw at her, reviewing Kiyonna’s Glittering Affair Wrap Dress. You can also see her latest KATU Afternoon Live appearance in which she talks about special occasion dresses and accessories. - DivineMrsDiva.com #Kiyonna #KiyonnaStyle #KiyonnaCurves #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #specialoccasion #weddingstyle #wrapdress

Hello!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Today's post is a big one, so I am just going to get into it.  Kiyonna sent me the dress in today's review post, the Glittering Affair Wrap Dress, which inspired my latest KATU topic - special occasion dresses.

I tend to be more of a practical special occasion dress kind of gal.  Don't get me wrong, if I could rock a sequin fit-and-flare, I totally would.  However, dresses like that tend to be out of my budget in terms of being a wedding guest or attending a party.  And as you know, I love to be comfortable while also being cute.  With wedding season in full force, I wanted to make sure folks knew about some great options for wedding guest attire, bridesmaid dresses, or any type of event or party.  Watch my appearance on Afternoon Live below, and read my review for this sparkling Kiyonna dress.
