Girls Just Want to Have Fun?

The Marilyn Convertible Dress - By Monif C
How to Wear the Convertible Dress - From Monif C (above)
From the moment she released the Marilyn Convertible dress in 2005, I have been in love. This is the most versatible dress on the market that decorates our curves 10+ different ways. Monif C's started with an above the knee version that could be transformed into a top and now has beautiful floor length maxi and ruched versions!
The convertible dress is not your traditional wrap dress but has two long pieces of fabric at the waist that allow you to create more than ten different looks. Watch all the how-to videos I collected from Monif's station to see how to get the most out of this dress.
One of the best features of this dress is the multi-size range. The one dress fits sizes 8 to 24 so if you lose or gain a few pounds you know this dress will always fit. It is a bit pricey if you think of it in terms of $195 to $235 for one dress but it really isn't.
The colors change every season! Current colors include: deep purple, red, and black; keep an eye out for two tone combinations.
A spicy, tingly gloss that enhances your lip's natural color by increasing circulation to the area. The result is shiny, bee-stung lips that cannot be achieved by wearing lipstick. You can also wear it over lip color for extra moisture and shine.
Du Wop Your Lips - Du wa, du, wa...
DuWop's lip venom is one of my favorite lip glosses. It adds a spicy, tingly gloss that enhances your lip's natural color by increasing circulation to the area. The result is super shiny, bee-stung lips that cannot be achieved by wearing a regular lip gloss. You can make someone else's lips tingle with a kiss too!
The Mae Dress - By SwakDesigns
SwakDesigns is becoming more impressive with each passing season and the Mae Dress is just another example of what they are doing right. A figure hugging party dress that comes in red or black -- two party colors if ever there were any.
The Mae Dress is a body conscious dress full of pretty gathers and ruching and a great bust-line that accentuates the cleavage. The stretch jersey fabric makes it comfortable for sitting or dancing. They comes in sizes 1x to 5x for $89.
The Sevilla Dress in cobalt - From Eliza Parker
This online boutique offers a select line of dresses and tops for plus size women including Sevilla Dress which comes in the cobalt blue shown here, as well as burgundy and plum.
The Sevilla Dress in cobalt has such a rich blue color perfect for any season. Its floor length a-line skirt creates a wave of fabric around the legs. The cross over at the breast offers a deep alluring V.
This party all day dress is available in size 10 to 28 for $229.
Cocktail and Evening Dresses - From Igigi by Yuliya Raquel
Igigi is known for their high quality figure flattering dresses for curvy figures. They are not afraid of color or showing a bit of curve (and sometimes a bit of skin). And they know how to dress for a party.
Many of their dresses offer an excellent fit with surplice necklines and empire waists. There is ruching, and a-lines. Their dresses are usually fully lined and guaranteed not to hike underneath.
Party all night dresses like the ones shown here are available in size 12 to 32 for $130 to $300.
