Fall is finally here (sometimes even for minutes at a time) and I can’t wait to cover my life in camel and my lips in bordeaux. Most of all, I am DYING to wear velvet like every damn day. Let me kick it off with this gorgeous gold skirt. You can grab it from Fashion Nova at a discount with code MAMAFIERCE.

What I love about velvet is the myriad ways you can dress it up or down. I’m all about a mix of glam and punk and this piece looks killer with a graphic tee and leopard sneakers. I got this APT tee from Burger and Friends.

Notice I’ve got a little bra peeking out and it is ALSO maroon. It’s all about the little deets.

As I mentioned, I already have TONS of velvet but it’s just never enough yaknow? So here is my velvet wishlist for fall chock full of velvet plus size pieces you just might die over. Sorry in advance.

Velvet Bomber Jacket

You’ve probably already heard of my obsession with Cat & Jack and how I’m thinking of hounding and harassing them into making adult plus sizes. Until then, this jacket should hold me over.

Sporty joggers and in that millennial pink, too? Yiss pls.

Here’s why I love plus size maxi dresses–they are easy, they are easy, and they are EASY. Everyone always has something to say when you where one and you get to giggle in secret while you think about throwing it over your head and running the fuck out the door.

But more than that, they are versatile when done right. They have the flow to keep you cool in the summer and the coverage to protect you from fall chills, with plenty of ways to layer and style them into new looks. Here are a few gems I picked out with simple yet stylish cuts in colors that can easily take you into the colder months.

Summer Floral Maxi

Summer Floral Maxi - Ivory

How perfect would this look with a denim or leather jacket? Or even my new obsession–denim bombers?

Printed Full Sleeve Maxi Dress

Printed Full Sleeve Maxi Dress

This one I love because the floral isn’t too vibrant and more muted for fall. Plus, it will look amazing with a sleeveless trench.

Isla Floral Print Maxi Dress

Plus Isla Floral Print Maxi Dress

This red poppy color is a great shade for fall. I’d love to see it edged up with a black biker jacket.

Helen Floral Off The Shoulder Maxi Dress

Plus Helen Floral Off The Shoulder Maxi Dress

Even your off-shoulder dresses can be layered for dropping temps. This dark floral would pair perfectly under a chunky, cropped sweater.

Frankie Stripe Tie Front Maxi Dress

"Plus Frankie Stripe Tie Front Maxi Dress "

A simple cardigan is all you need for this pinstriped perfection.

Orla Striped Column Maxi Dress

Plus Orla Striped Column Maxi Dress

What can I say? I’m kinda living for stripes. They are very transitional, after all. Fall calls for more geometric prints and flirty summer stripes definitely qualify. This piece would look fantastic with a bomber to keep the look sporty-chic.

ZANZEA Polka Dot Maxi Dress

ZANZEA Women Polka Dot Strapless Boho Spaghetti Long Maxi Beach Party Dress

Pockets alert! This is another great piece for a denim jacket and booties.

Verdusa Color Block Maxi Dress

Verdusa Women's Summer Color Block Half Sleeve Split Casual Loose Shift Maxi Dress

How amazing is this color combo? But how about that slouchy cut, tho? Love.

Junarose Plus Size Tie Dye Maxi Dress

"Junarose Women's Plus Size Sleeveless Tie Dye Maxi Dress "

Fact: the only acceptable tie-dye shade is black and white. Fight me.

Annabelle Racerback Maxi Dress

Blush is a color that transcends seasons. Get you some blush.

Boho Me Maxi Dress

I do love the dark lavender of this dress but it comes in even more colors!

If you follow my personal Facebook page, you got an eye- and ear-full of the spastic joy I experienced getting these goddamn shoes in the mail. First, I know I am late but I had no idea alllllll the sick Vans were on Opening Ceremony. Like I’m a little upset no one told me and that I just assumed the best Vans were on Vans.com LIKE AN IDIOT.

You also caught a glimpse into my thought process around constructing outfits. Indeed, there is a method to the madness. And my madness screamed EXTRAPOLATE ON THE GLITTER BETCH. So I went with this silver glitter dress that I cut into a crop. Then my madness screamed USE LEOPARD AS A NEUTRAL BETCH. She is rude but she’s not wrong.

I already knew I was going to go with a bold blue lip to tie in the shoes but then, oh that madness and her banshee voice—YOU HAVE A MATCHING NECKLACE BETCH OMG. I actually totes forgot. It’s been quite a while since I have featured it.

Finally, she was silenced. By sparkle.

An amazing friend I met at last year’s We All Glow summit was in town to play a show with San Cha (who is liiiiiife). I was already in this outfit but thennnnnn…ok so I’m diving deep into suspenders. Mostly because I’m Single White (or Married Brown?) Female-ing Virgie Tovar. These babies came in the mail just before I was heading to the show.

Tape measure suspenders

That’s right I’M TAKING BACK MEASURING TAPE. I will no longer be oppressed by the emotional weight of inches around my waist. I will take that shit as seriously as superfluous clothing. Stay tuned for more outfits with theeeeeeeeese. I love them.

I was going to start out with a rant about how being with someone for almost 10 years can make it hard to really wow them but I’m pretty lucky. My husband is insanely easy to please. A nicely cooked egg or some hastily-applied lipstick is usually the effort level it takes to make him to say, “Aww, I get to be with you forever? Awesome.” Nonetheless, making his jaw drop is what I occasionally like to go for and I’ve been meaning to incorporate some butt flashing into my evening wardrobe. Then I found this little number at a thrift store!

Plus size sheer dress

The lace pattern on this sheer dress makes the fact that I am essentially walking around in underwear a little less conspicuous. They also perfectly matched these super sexy thigh bands with one amazing purpose in mind–anti-chafing!

Bandelettes anti-chafing thigh bands

These Bandelettes were comfortable and stayed in place pretty easily. There was some slight roll-down in the back at the very top of the band (because BOOTY), but other than that, they held up amazingly.

This whole look felt like I was wearing lingerie in public and I have to say, I’m about it. That really is the most tragic thing about lingerie when you’re not polyamorous–only one person gets to see it. Boo.

Needless to say, hubs was about it, too. He’s gonna want to skip dessert on Valentine’s Day. Buuuut I’m gonna make him wait for a 20-minute soufflé. Because Feminism.

Boohoo plus size velvet bodysuit

Ughhhhh velvet. I just want to wrap my entire life in it. I made it worse recently by watching The Princess Bride for the first time in like a whole month and even the dudes wear pastel velvet it’s so good *dies*.

Boohoo plus size velvet bodysuit

This sheer skirt was white. I wanted to dye it blush. It came out HOT PINK. I bleached it then dyed two more times only for it to come out the exact same color as this bodysuit. Kinda meant to be. Although I’m still mourning not being able to do a pink and blush combo. Seriously sad about it.

Crystal choker

And what velvet-driven outfit isn’t complete with a crystal necklace for some “good witch” vibes? My big Valentine also loved this look but my lil’ Valentine’s seal of approval was the best part.

And once you invite him in front of a camera, it’s hard to get him focused on anything else.

Damn he looks good in pink. Also, this out-take tickles me:

Boohoo killing it plus size swimsuit

My husband and I are creatures of habit. Every year, we go to Pismo Beach for our anniversary, stay at the same motel, eat the same treats (Old West cinnamon rolls FTW) and leave with too many records and knick knacks from antique stores. It’s a no-frills, stress free vacay and we love it. But really my favorite part is packing my fanciest shit to remind this man why he chose this crazy bitch in the first place.

I’d say the letters across my belly are indeed an accurate account of how well I packed, don’t you? But also, here’s my butt:

Killin it plus size swimsuit

And this was just day one. That night, we did our usual dinner at the homey country western establishment, F. McLintocks. So I also packed my finest shit-kickers.

Southwest print dress and cowgirl boots

Actually, them’s my only shit-kickers. This combo is an oldie and a goodie and that Southwest print dress from Forever 21 has been with me many moons. I also averted a small crisis when I found I forgot my go-to berry red lipstick at home. Before a complete meltdown ensued, I remembered how fucking pigmented my Morphe eyeshadows are and mixed one with just a touch of Burt’s Bees for an instant lipstain that made me feel like a makeup miracle worker.

Red lips

But our final night at my favorite place in San Luis Obispo, The Madonna Inn, was also my favorite outfit. And a big part of that was because it was a new style, from a new brand, and I DID NOT prepare a trial run. As lazy as I say I am, I sure do love a fashion challenge. But I gotta say, I think it was lit.

Orange plus size jumpsuit

Literally. A sunset shoot perfectly captured this gorgeous GCGme jumpsuit in burnt orange. Paired with my blue boots and a major necklace, I think I managed to edge it up to my liking. That alone was my biggest challenge.

The second biggest was getting hubs to stop freaking out about us being late for our resie and just take one more damn picture please thanks.

Plus size orange jumpsuit

Worth it. This piece continued to kill long after the sun went down.

And that lipstick got compliments all damn night, which is pretty amazing considering where I was staying. The central coast is NOT the bay. People can be very conservative. But clearly some of them are wonderful freaks like moi.

Scallops. It is one of those style points I have always loved but often just doesn’t fall neatly in line with my not-so-neat aesthetic. Scallops are demure, cutesy and retro–hard to mix into an edgier wardrobe. But Boohoo, oh Boohoo. You did it.

 

Boohoo pink plus size jumpsuit

While this gorgeous mauve catsuit was pretty daring on its own, I thought it could use a little hip hop inspo with these electric neon Nikes and one seriously sick chain belt. The bralette and vest (oldie but goody) I just added because strapless is a real no-no for me. I always live in fear of a wardrobe malfunction (i.e. nip slip).
