    3 Summer Denim Looks! | Featuring Royalty For Me Denim

    Hey Luxe Babes! I wanted to pop on the Blog and show you 3 great Denim options from Royalty For Me! The one think they have in common is they all have “Ankle” (Or Hem if you rather) detail! I really don’t want to ramble, So lets get to it!

    WOMEN PLUS SIZE ANKLET WITH SIDE LEG ZIPPER
    This, By Far was my favorite pair! It the rise was perfect, it had a built in Tummy Control Panel and zipper detail at the ankle! I paired it with that Boohoo Satin Animal print oversized blouse (Which should should be familiar…if not imma need you to check out my previous blog post!) and a pair of fuchsia linen mules from JustFab! This look is perfect for hanging out with the girls and grabbing a bite to eat…and still look chic!

I paired this look with my “Honey” Tee from Shien and my Lauren Conrad slides Past season from Kohls and that straw bag from walmart. My hair is tied up in a curly messy pony with a colorful scarf that was gifted to me years go, some gold hoops and my famous sunnies (That i wear ALL THE TIME!! so if a sunglass company wants to sponsor me…lets do this!!!

    3 Tips on how to shop at Rainbow as a Plus Size Woman!

    Hey Luxe Babes! 

    I wanted to share with you a couple of items that I purchased from from Rainbow Apparel, as well as 3 tips on how to choose what to order! I will be honest…I have for a long time, ruled out Rainbow because I felt that the clothing was basically disposable clothing, which tends not to look good on what I call a “Perfect Plus Size” Body Types.

    Let me explain. I feel like if you are not a “Perfect Plus” size person, its hard not to look sloppy in clothing. I define “Perfect Plus” as someone who has a smooth curvy frame, most of the time your an hourglass in shape. This person has very few prominent  rolls, lumps and bumps. Now I AM IN NO WAY SAYING what I call a “Perfect Plus” frame is better then, well, any other frame. I coined that phrase/description for the average model that you see in Ads and on websites. Sadly…a lot of fit models are that perfect plus shape as well, and thats IF that brand even has a Fit Model!  I know i’m still going to get some backlash about using the term “Perfect” but…well…ummmm…FIGHT ME! lol!

    Anywho!!!! Let’s get back to the point. Rainbow came through for your sis!! I ordered only 3 items (Ya girl is on a tight budget!) and 2 out of 3 were perfect! Not Bad huh?

    BONUS TIP RIGHT OFF THE RIP!!!
    Know the difference between JUNIOR PLUS and REGULAR Plus BEFORE Before you even start adding to the cart! I would definitely say the Rainbow leans more to Junior Plus…SO Size Up babes!!

    Ok… (Steps off of soap box…) LegGO!

     

    Tip 1: Try to choose a great basic!

    If you purchase a pair of cheaper denim, in a lot of cases, the more distressing, whickering, embellishments it had, the cheaper it look! Now, I will say, Rainbow has some super cute distressed Jeans, but PLEASE, I beg of you, be carefull! I got a basic pair of jeans that I have already got sooooooo much use out of! They fit so well (Size 20) and I like the medium weight of them. They are made by Almost Famous ($22.99). They have just enough stretch to accommodate my fluffy waist as well as my very curvy thighs and legs. The length is perfect for a simple small roll of the cuff to show off a sandal or a bootie or you can wear it full length. The color is a medium Blue with a flattering grained denim finish (Makes them look more Luxe) and does not have a whole lot of unnecessary over-the-top shading and whiskering! Ill create another post talking about what I look for in jeans…but there are my new favorite Jean!

    Tip #2: Pay Attention to Fabric.

     The 2nd Item I purchased was this super cute cotton wrap top! I purchased a Size 3x because my upper arms are usually a trouble area to fit, and I felt like I could always tighten the wrap feature. I’m so glad I did because it was a perfect fit (With no room for error! LOL!)! I feel like because this was a cotton fabric, it looked and felt more expensive then it was. Some polyester fabrics tend to look a little cheezy, specially if its that shiny poly! SO please pay attention to Finishes of the fabric. Read the description and zoom in honey!!

    Tip #3: Know that everything might not work!
    Rainbow Plus Size Tie Waist Duster

    The 3rd item I ordered is this cute Duster! I saw another Youtuber (Shainna from A Thick Girls Closet! Subscribe to her, shes awesome!). She looked super cute in it! But she is smaller in her arm region, that’s why I Sized up (Purchased a 3x). NOPE! Did Not work! So ill just either sell it (Its sold out online) Or hold on to it to see if I could fit in in at a later date. I’m SO trying not to do that because I am a “Ill get into it soon” hoarder! LOL! but I’ll insert a stock photo of it. Its too cute!
     
    Understand that shopping online can be a gamble sometimes BUT if you only shop brick and Mortar (Whats in stores) you are seriously limiting your self!
    Don’t say I didn’t tell you… Momma told you…(Insert Cardi. B Child Meme)

     

     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    I Hope these 3 tips (Specially the Bonus tip) help you navigate and choose wisely pertaining Rainbows Plus Size section. Of course you can ventur in store to shop, but I will say online carries a Waaaaayyyyy more vast Plus Size collection! When you get a good feel about sizing and material that a site carries, you will feel better about taking more shopping risks the 2nd or 3rd time around!  You can use these tips at any other lower priced retailer! Let me know what you think about the items I chose! Should I do another Rainbow Haul?? I would love to hear your thoughts so comment below!
     
    Till Next Time Luxe Babes!
