If I told you I was running for office, would you believe me (having only seen these photos)? Well, I’m not, but I feel like this would be the outfit I’d announce my candidacy in. And before you ask… Yes, a leather skirt is absolutely appropriate for that occasion….at least to me it is (hah). A girl could dream right?
Side note: PLEASE VOTE. I will be voting on November 6, and no matter your political stance or viewpoint, I urge you to exercise your right, and make a difference in this next election.

All politics aside (you can breathe now), you know I have a new obsession when it comes to plus size brands right? If you are scratching your head, all I have to say is, “GIRL! Where have you been?!” In two recent posts: FASHION-FORWARD PLUS SIZE WORK WEAR and AN UNSTOPPABLE JUMPSUIT I have proclaimed my love and adoration for Marée Pour Toi, the newest plus size brand on the block. The fit is on point, the styles are on trend, and I can wear almost everything to work. It’s a win-win-win. If you haven’t heard of Marée Pour Toi, it made its entry into the plus size fashion world via CurvyCon in New York this past September. This look I am sporting is entirely from the brand, and similarly to the other pieces I have tried from Marée Pour Toi, I’m in love. Let’s start with the Navy Blazer! I feel like I have been looking for a blazer that was a tad oversized since Kim Kardashian started wearing them in like 2010…anyone else with me? Well, I finally found it! Not only is the blazer versatile, but it has the best pockets ever. I wore this blazer to a four day trade show, and I didn’t have to carry a heavy purse or anything! The pockets fit a small notepad, my phone, business cards, and a bunch of other things. Under the blazer I am wearing the Polka-Dot Twofer Sweater, which isn’t typically something I would wear just because I don’t love polka dots and it is sort of loose fitting, but I found a way to make it work by tucking it in to the Pleather Pleated Skirt for a more fitted and flattering look! And I must say, I love the way the polka dots peek out in this look. But back to the skirt: I am a sucker for a sexy, well-fitted skirt. I have worn this skirt with a button up blouse and a sweater, and I plan to pair it with plenty of other things in my closet. I love the cut of it, and it’s insulated inside to keep me warm during the chilly winter.
