By Irene Gomes @PetitePlusMeow

Happy Hump Day!!!

EVERYDAY THIS WEEK  Cassie from Style Cassentials and I are exploring and putting our own twists on several Spring trends!

Today’s Spring Trend:  Stripe Storm

Be they Horizontal, Vertical, Asymmetrical …

Every which way there is a stripe storm ahead for Spring and Summer this year!!!

This stripped linen dress is lightly lined, with vertical and horizontal stripes AND buttons all down the front could possibly be the trifecta of plus-sized *DON’TS* according to “Style Rules” for the Curvy/Plus/Full-Figured/Fat Babe that some people out there subscribe to.

I have been on the hunt for the last few months and nothing has really woo’ed me enough to spend my hard-earned money on.

But Old Navy has really stepped up their game this season…and I’ve found lots of luck in their straight sizes.

Just look at it!!!  It’s fantastic!!!



I couldn’t help myself – the cowgirl western vibe isn’t for everyone. But I’m a fan!!!❤

Fringe was also a big trend at New York’s Fashion Week (Spring 2016)!!!  And I don’t just mean accessories.  These stylishly-slashed-edges are lining skirts, dresses and jackets in addition bags, shoes and earrings.

Yes, any way you slice it, fringe is in.

I kinda boarded this fringe-train this past Fall, introducing just little elements of it … like purses +tassels.  But knowing that this trend is gonna be everywhere this Spring, I was on the hunt to find that perfect piece that suits my vibe.

And then I found this brown suede vest….and was finally able to introduce the shredded hemlines into an outfit!😀


How I Got The Look:  Fringed suede vest, Winners; Stripped dress, Old Navy; Hat, Reitmans; Bracelets, Forever21; Platform sandals and Toupe booties, NineWest; Blown-glass necklace, old.

Cassie went for colourful stripes and a sweet off-the-shoulder black top.  Adorbz!
