Curves at Coachella

April 29th, 2013 3:50 pm

Every year, we kick ourselves for missing the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival yet again. The festival takes place each spring in the sun-drenched Mojave Desert near Los Angeles.

It seems that most of the Coachella photos out there are of glamorous celebrities (i.e. Kristen Stewart looking miserable– just for a change). But how refreshing to come across these snaps on the super stylish Madison Plus blog?! These curvy music and fashion fans rocked the cool festival styles with the best of ‘em. Move over, Alexa Chung!

On-trend stripes and graphic tees with classic rockin' denim jackets!

Love a colourful bandeau under a sheer top. Lace mixed with acid-washed denim is always perfectly edgy and sweet!

Breezy and chic with fab accessories!

Great Style Tips From Amy at Madison Plus

Our friend Aimee Cheshire is featured in the May issue of MORE Magazine. Aimee is the founder of the successful retail website and blog, Madison Plus.

As a businesswoman and fashion expert, Aimee shares some great tips for dressing your curves. Here are a few highlights:

Get Your Clothes Tailored. A good seamstress can make alterations exactly where you need them most. Hem skirts and dresses to fall at the slimmest part of your leg (which is never mid calf). Hem wide-leg pants a little on the long side, to lengthen your leg.

Adjust Your Purse Strap. Don’t let your bag hit you at the widest part of your body (for many of us its our hips). That will only add girth. Instead, let it fall to waist height or just above. Either buy bags with adjustable straps or have the bag professionally altered.

Play With Proportions. Loose clothes on top and bottom will drown out your figure. Pair one piece that’s generously cut with a snugger mate; for example, a wide leg pant with a more fitted blouse, or skinny jeans with a tunic top

NJFFFW Kicks Off This Weekend!

March 30th, 2012 3:58 pm

The much anticipated NJFFFW® (New Jersey Full Figured Fashion Week) begins this weekend in Atlantic City, NJ. This event caters to the plus-size woman on multiple levels. It raises awareness in the fashion industry of curvier women as style-savvy customers. It debuts the latest plus-size styles and trends to women. And it offers networking opportunities for influentials in the fashion industry, from designers and models to celebrity guests to fashion consumers.

Over the course of the weekend, guests will be treated to shopping events, panel discussions, celebrity appearances and runway shows. Evenings will offer dancing and performances by award-wining singers. There also will be a plus-size model search with Top Model’s Toccarra Jones as a panelist.

Anna Scholz is pleased to have pieces from her Spring-Summer 2012 collection showcased in a runway show at the event. Our friends from Madison are official sponsors of this exciting weekend.

Nfinite Form has created NJFFFW ® as a “platform to raise mainstream fashion’s awareness of the plus-size industry” and to “empower women of all ranges to feel glamorous and confident with designers and brands that appeal to their curves.”
