Hiya! My name is Kelsey. When I’m not trolling the interwebs looking for adorable
fashion-related bargains, wrangling my army of cats, or harassing my fiancée, you
can find me blogging about curvy fashion and style on Charming Pumpkin. I have a
soft spot for good food and good scotch, I perpetually have my nose stuck in a book,
and I laugh… a lot.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to style two of my favorite items from Frock
Stock’s plus size section. Armed with the power of Polyvore, I created… THESE!!!
Because the Love Dove top is billowy, it requires a more tailored top layer. I opted
for a brightly hued blazer in a coordinating color, but a more fitted cardigan would
work equally as well. Because the top itself is looser, it’s important to balance it
out with tighter bottoms. I’m a sucker for skinny jeans tucked into boots, so that’s
exactly what I selected.
I loooooove to accessorize, so I paired the top with the Baroque Splendor earrings
from Frock Stock (*grabby hands*), a gaggle of skinny bangles, and a long (and
heavy!) watch necklace. As someone with, ahem, heftier maidens, billowy tops can
be a challenge. Too often, they end up hanging straight down from The Maidens,
which only serves to make me look bigger. I’ve found that a long, heavy necklace
helps the fabric drape more flatteringly in chestal area. Really! It does!
I luuuuuuurve the Napa Valley dress. I never really got on board with the color-
blocking trend, but this dress is making me reconsider. For this outfit, I opted
for a subtly patterned cardigan in a nude color, and matching tights. I wanted the
focus to be on the amazing shape the colored portion of the dress creates – it’s got
a faux-bustier effect going on that I really like. I swapped out the fabric belt for a
woven leather belt, and opted for a pair of heeled loafers. I’m obsessed with the Velo
Necklace from Frock Stock – it’s so cute – so I was hellbent on using it. The kitty
earrings are a seriously cute bargain from Amazon, of all places.
To Loren and Frock Stock: thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to write
a guest post. I’m so honored! To you, the reader: I hope you enjoyed these outfits! I
had so much fun putting them together. I can’t wait to see what Frock Stock has in

say hello! I always love hearing from new people. =D
