Ok, now back to the clothes!

Wear the Stripes

This outfit includes a navy striped tee.  As I mentioned in my last post with stripes, I am an unapologetic stripe-aholic.

But, I often get questions and concerns from readers about stripes making you look bigger or a “rule” about no stripes.

In my opinion, life is just too short to worry about wearing stripes and as Melissa at Suger Coat It demonstrates in her blog post “Are horizontal stripes REALLY making you look fat?,” they’re really not.

She does such a fantastic job of breaking down this outdated “rule.”

Madewell Jeans

Plus Size Madewell Jeans in Cali Demi-Boot - Alexa Webb

These Madewell jeans, called “Cali Demi-Boot,” look like a kick flare jean but with a little less flare.  They’re cropped at 26.5″ putting them well above the ankle.

And they’re available in petite and tall.  Woot!

They’re made of “super stretch” denim, which I have heard is ultra-comfortable and super flattering.

And they’re also known for retaining their shape.  Meaning, they aren’t going to stretch out throughout the day as you wear them.

The sizing is similar to that of J.Crew.  See the size chart below to find your correct “vanity” waist size:

Lipstick

As I’ve said, my favorite lipsticks, which I readily admit are bougie AF and totally break the budget, are these Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipsticks (or here).

They’re 65% oil and feel amazing on the lips!  Not to mention they smell fantastic.  And I just can’t say enough great things about them!

The closest lippies I have found at more reasonable prices are L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Shine Lipstick and Sephora’s Rouge Lacquer Lipsticks.  While both are similar, they aren’t even close to the decadence of the YSL ones.

  1. Love the striped top and your comments about the outdated (or perhaps irrelevant!) “stripes make you look wider” assumption. Your sense of style continually inspires me! Thank for what you do for the plus-size community.

  2. I have a pair of the Cali demi-boot and they are very comfortable. They do stretch so if you are between sizes, size down. Super cute syling.

  3. Fellow stripe lover here! I have a shorter but similar blazer and never thought to put it together with stripes! Love, love, love this idea. Thanks for all of your hard work and amazing blog. Congrats on 5 years! Cheers

  4. Hi Alexa!
    I’m not a fan of ankle pants (or crops), they’re just not flattering on me. I prefer full length pants, which are surprisingly harder to find. I love the rest of the outfit, the bucket bag and the mules especially! Classy way to dress up a casual striped tee and jeans, definitely copying this fall!

  5. I enjoy your post! I’m not sure what else to say I normally don’t comment on anything lol. Thanks for all your hard work on the blog!
