ACCESSORIES, TRY ON HAUL

Mini Try -0n Haul: Accessories from Forever Trendy

Hey guys, im back again with another haul but this time round, a mini one. Let’s talk about accessories today. You don’t need loads of accessories to be stylish. Agree or disagree? Comment below!

One item that will help complete your look to the best is using accessories. Statement accessories are your bestie when it comes to dressing any plus sized body. Hats and bags are very amazing accessories which fit this bill. They can magically elevate your style in such an effortless way.

Who doesn’t want to look good! I came across these statement accessories at Forever Trendy and thought why not share them with you:

Accessory 1: Beret Hat

My first accessory, is this black beret hat. I’ve never had much luck in finding great hats. What i find out there is either too expensive, the quality is not that amazing or just doesn’t fit me really good.

There is something feminine about beret hats. I love the silver studded details on this particular one. I think they make it look edgy without being over the top.

Forever Trendy has berets in some seriously amazing colors.

The material is really soft to the touch glides easily when you wear it. This hat instantly transforms your outfit from basic to fab to be precise.

Style fact: The beret hat is such an icon in the French Fashion. Now you know what gift to give your French friends in case you have any lol.

Accessory 2. Floppy Straw Hat

Next is this floppy straw hat. I love the fit. It’s one hat which you don’t need to be worried about falling off your head when the wind blows. As long as you get the right size you are good to go.

However it can be abit limiting if you are rocking a bulky hairstyle like chunky braids or weaves. It just might not fit really well but to counter this, check out the other amazing options from this store.

What i love about this particular straw hat is that its large enough to protect one from the sun. For size details, it’s actually a 57cm.

This accessory would be a perfect accompaniment to the beach. On a sunny day, it would also pair very well with a cute floral dress for that subtle look.

Accessory 3: Round rattan straw Bag

The last but not least is this straw bag. I think this is one accessory you might love. The fact that its neutral means you can perfectly pair it with a range of outfits. It’s stylish, fun and timeless just to say the least.

Small but mighty, i must say am absolutely smitten by the round structure. You can throw in all your go – to easy to reach stuff when going out and about. How convenient!

Style tip: You can wrap a colorful scarf around the handle of your straw bag to add some sass. Just play around with different textures based on what you are wearing.

Its amazing how this straw bag has brightened this black monochromatic outfit. Totally love the look.

Oh.. still looks good when you combine the straw bag and hat together.

Did i get value for money? I would say yes! Definitely yeees because the materials are so high quality and these are designs that you don’t see all over.

Best Shops for Plus Size Women Clothing in Nairobi : Series 1

A while ago, i had such a struggle finding stores that sold plus size attire without compromising on my style. Most of the stalls which claimed to sell plus size clothes had these very boring stuff which was so upsetting. Just because somebody is a plus size doesn’t mean they want to go through all their life in deras or oversized clothes. Please don’t get it twisted I have nothing against deras. Infact i have a couple but you just can’t live in them forever.

I’m glad nowadays there are a couple of stores which have pretty awesome stuff for this niche. I have compiled a list of the stores that are worth visiting for great plus size apparel here in Nairobi. For starters today i’m sharing with you THREE stores in no particular order whatsoever. These are stores which i have either bought from or seen their collection and can vouch for without any hesitation.

  1. Lyl Fashion

Great for : Trendy pieces

They pride themselves in selling American dresses. They stock high quality dresses, coats denim and kimonos amongst others. If you are looking for plus size apparel which is unique and can’t be easily found elsewhere, this is the place to explore. Sizes range from 12 to 26 depending on the attire. So far i know Lyl fashion has two stores. Their town branch is at Re-insurance Plaza, Mezzanine floor inside boutique Africa. The other branch is situated in Yaya area, Wood Avenue at Woodlands Mall 2nd floor. Their trendy casual dresses will blow you away. Check them out here.

2. Vivo Woman

Great for: Chic pieces

When you need something to spice up your wardrobe, Vivo Woman will never disappoint you. The beauty about this store is that it’s a Kenyan fashion brand and they keep updating their collection. They stock comfy basics ranging from dresses, outerwear, tops, skirts to bottoms. Their sizes start from XS all the way to XXXL. They have stores in 13 locations: The Junction, Yaya Centre, Capital Centre, The Hub, Village Market, Galleria, Mama Ngina Street, Kiambu Mall Garden City, T-Mall, City Mall – Nyali, Westside Mall – Nakuru & Rupa Mall – Eldoret.

3. BelaBstyles

Great for: Adorable pieces

I’m delighted that i recently discovered BelaBstyles. This amazing store caters for plus size women as well in designs never seen before at very affordable prices. The quality is amazing as well. Their wide range of dresses,skirts and tops will melt your heart instantly and you will be spoilt for choice. Their sizes can go up to 18 or 20 depending on the item in question. They are located on Kiambu road, Chief Gatabaki Centre, second floor, shop no 18. You will adore their official and maxi ranges. This store is definitely worth a visit. Check them out here.
