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.

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.

Plus, it’s all about the accents.

There’s nothing I love more than finding ways to get more bang for my buck when it comes to clothes. I always hesitate buying dresses these days, particularly ones that are more revealing. Don’t get me wrong, I love showing a little skin. But I know it’s not an everyday occurrence and I hate when those pieces start to collect dust, waiting for my next “mom’s night off” shenanigans.

Plus size denim dress

Rather than cut this gorgeous Premme dress into separates, I decided to add a little print with this fitted leopard tank! It turns the cutouts into panels and adds a little coverage to the neckline as well.

Qupid recently reached out to me to try out their shoes (which I have before and have never been disappointed). However, these silver sneakers seriously upped the ante. I was hesitant to buy pointed-toe sneakers but man, they are still insanely comfy.

Now let’s move onto an even more bodycon number.

My clubbing days are few and far between so this gorgeous piece would be wasted on me if I hadn’t come up with this stylish solution.

A simple graphic tee under the dress provides ample coverage while a flat boot (also from Qupid) creates a killer color combo and easily takes it into daytime.

Here’s a better look at the kicks:

These, like the sneakers, are also super comfy with some stretch at the sides for my peeps rocking some thickness at the ankles.

For the most part, there aren’t many things on my “no” list when it comes to my personal style. By now you hopefully know none of that has to do with flattering since I give no fucks. These are just general trends and styles that I tend to avoid, whether I feel they are played out or just plain fugly. Velvet pants, for one, is something I never thought I would buy.

Gray velvet pants

Even though like all college girls, I went through a wearing-pajama-pants-outside phase, I consider that a low point in my fashion life and was not keen on how much velvet pants look like they should have a giant Juicy written on the ass. But these Who What Wear lounge pants called to me, hard. It was probably the color. That gray is gorge.

A crop top (points if you get the ref) and lounge pants are literally things I wear to bed so slapping on a necklace and boots with them felt so wrong, it was right. Mostly, I just like the color palette that happened. Mostly. 😉

Next on my Never Never list was the ever hippy dippy slouchy maxi dress. On top of them being body-hiding garbage bags, this particular one is from H&M, with whom I have pretty serious beef since their size inclusivity is just sad. I can sporadically find things in a 16 but not nearly enough to give them my attention. But here’s the thing: This dress? It’s a medium.

H&M Kenzo maxi dress

Medium! Exactly how drapey is the motherfucker supposed to be, Kenzo? I could have easily fit into the small. This is already a bed sheet on me.

H&M Kenzo maxi dress

I kind of felt like I was sticking it to H&M for buying this. 1.) It was deeply discounted and there were a ton of them so clearly it was not well-received. 2.)Wearing a design not as intended is sometimes a big slap in the face to a brand, so I was happy with that.

Leopard print maxi dress

One upside to so much fabric, it moves like a boss. I can’t wait to wear this fucker on windy day.

I saved my biggest word-eating moment for last. I’ve even written about how much I don’t get the overalls comeback. For this one, I had actual vitriol. But then…70s wide legs came back, too. And then they joined forces. Ugh, so good.

Also, this is yet another outfit inspired by my kween, Aarti of Curves Become Her. Her layering of denim to create a jumpsuit-like look was On. Point.

I asked for the pants to be altered for wearing flats but somehow, they ended up long. It was actually lucky because I don’t think any shoe looks as good with these than my gold ankle boots.

It was also a good opportunity to try some lapel accenting, which I actually always loved but rarely wear collars. It’s good to have friends who are Etsy crafters and who share my affinity for burgers and fries!

fur vest

It seems that my crack as of late is top and bottom combos. While rompers and jumpsuits were solidly at the top of my hot list, matching tops and bottoms have taken the lead due to one crucial element–a little belly action. You cannot escape my belly these days. Now you see it, now you–oh. Nope. Still there.

And while I was steadily stocking up on all the combos I would ever possibly need, the criteria for buying them became more strict. But believe it or not, I did not nor ever before own a single piece of velvet clothing. Obviously, I could not resist this H&M velvet crop top and velvet skirt in rich merlot.

Also, that was a hard pose to hold. Here’s me almost falling.

fur vest

As for the fur vest (similar here), spike necklace and WTF-is-that-neon-green-lipstick, I think there’s a couple of things responsible for this and they are both totally 90s–Brad Pitt in Fight Club and this picture of OTEP. These were the images coming to mind when I was pulling pieces together. The green lipstick, which is actually a blend of two colors from Limnit Lipstick on Etsy, is just me getting weird with it. I am pleased.

All these pieces will get me through winter just swimingly until my hunt for rompers will recommence.
