Hi friends, since I hurt my leg a while ago I’ve put on some weight and once again I thought of Kiyonna Clothing. Actually the clothing is made for size 10 and up so I still could have worn the clothing while thinner. But, as I am sure some of you know, it is so very hard to find clothing that is both pretty and flattering in larger sizes, well Kiyonna’s Plus Size Clothing perfectly fills those requirements.
And now that the Seasons are changing and especially with Weddings coming up it’s time to freshen up the wardrobe again, so I thought I would post a little something from Kiyonna for you, in case you are looking for something flattering and new for your wardrobe.
Oh and yes, this “Smitten Lace Top” (below), is so lovely in any of the colors they offer…I just love lace, don’t you?
Dress it up, dress it down, but no matter how you style it, the Smitten Lace Top from Kiyonna is destined to become your go-to top for every look!
With ruching all along the torso, this top will flatter and hug all of your fabulous curves. It is lined except for the high sheer neckline, which has a skin tone mesh behind the lace to hide your bra and give you a little more coverage. The sheer lace sleeves fall at about your elbow and are sexy with added room for comfort as well.
Five ways to style the Smitten Lace Top:
1. Pair the Smitten Lace Top with a floral pencil skirt for the perfect casual office look.
2. Go bold with the Smitten Lace Top paired with white ankle pants and nude heels for an everyday look that can go everywhere.
3. A sleek, solid pencil skirt with the Smitten Lace Top goes from office to evening with ease.
4. The Smitten Lace Top looks fantastic worn completely casual with jeans, heels and a great statement necklace – perfect for movie night.
5. And finally, the Smitten Lace Top and the Twirling in Tulle Skirt work together magically for a look that is ideal for a night on the town.
What is your favorite way to style Kiyonna’s Smitten Lace Top?
I have a wonderful review of plus size clothing for you from a wonderful company that I’ve worked with in the past, Alight. You can read my past review of their clothing HERE. I was fortunate enough to be accepted for another review and giveaway for you lovely plus sized women out there in internet land.
For my review I received a lovely top from them that is perfectly airy for with a summer top underneath it and there are so many ways to wear it. It looks great with a white short sleeved top under it, or a purple tank top, this would be perfect for any time of the year. I also think that if the side ties hit you at your waist, like it did with me, it would be perfect belted. I have to say that this top is perfect for summer for me, since I don’t like the show “my wings” (the flabby back side of my arms as a result of my weight loss of 50 lbs, 3 years ago). In these sweltering hot days of summer, I feel so very enclosed in most of my clothing that hides those upper arm “wings” it’s stifling… however with this top I feel free, breezy and cool as the delicate fabric lets air circulate and keeps me cool and fashionable.
I can see this top for all seasons, a smart choice for back to school as well since there are so very many ways to wear it. Wear a top like this with a skirt, over a short sleeved dress, with dress pants or jeans. How about dressing it up with nice jewelry for a change, pearls would look fantastic with this for a real classic way to dress up, how about long chained necklace or a choker, in silver, gold, black or any color that goes with the multiple colors that are in a top like this?
And for a top with this particular blouse, how about a beautiful camisole? Make it lacy or a filmy silk or satin, in coordinating colors or a simple white or cream color. Now looking through their website I didn’t find this top, I found some other gorgeous tops that would work just the same way. Nothing like a filmy top that will work for all seasons, just change what you wear underneath it, how about a long sleeved t-shirt or a tight light weight sweater or a turtle neck.
A lot of the items I found at Alight could be grouped with multiple other items in their store to make many outfits with just a shirt or two, a dress, a skirt, pants, leggings and a cute shrug. This is THE WAY to shop for back to school, whether it be college or High School, or for us Mom’s out there, why not treat yourself to back to school celebration clothing too and be the hottest, coolest Mom around? We cannot forget to take care of ourselves some too. 🙂
I love to sew on my sewing machines (when I find the time), in the past I’ve done everything on my sewing machines, from sewing my own clothing to sewing my curtains. I even had my sewing in the county fair in Minnesota as a teenager and I had many complements on my sewing by the judges, though I don’t recall my receiving any ribbons for it…lol Anyway I had to check out things on this top, to share with you as well, below are my findings.
I checked the seams on my beautiful new top, and they are pure perfection, sewn just right, not a missing stitch nor was the stitching crooked in any way. This top could not possibly be a second, though with the great prices at Alight I wouldn’t have been surprised if they had bought seconds to sell. The material itself is perfect as well, the fabric’s design isn’t miss printed or any areas of it didn’t seem to be pulled or sparse in threading.
While looking around there site, I see so many wonderful items for sale, from Formal Wear, to Casual, from pants, tops and sweaters to dresses. I found some great plus size dresses at Alight, and I couldn’t believe the selection, alight has really grown since I last visited their site. Below are just a few examples of the dresses that really caught my eye.
All in all, whatever your budget, you are sure to find the perfect outfit at Alight. I had a lot of fun looking around their site and have dreams of saving up for a gown someday, just so I have something for special occasions. I have also found some excellent prices on some great basics for everyday wear that are fun to mix and match.
Now enough of that, lets get to the giveaway… if you are a Gal that wears plus size or you know someone who is, this is the perfect surprise gift giveaway. This prize will be in the size you ask for (if you win) but the item you receive will be a fun mystery! Don’t you just love surprises?
