My picks from Charlotte Russe+


When one door closes, another one opens, right? Seems like that's the case with plus-size retailers (whatever your feelings about the term "plus-size" everyone pretty much knows what that means). While Debs and Wet Seal + shuttered its operations, Target and Charlotte Russe (CR) have expanded theres to include extended sizing! It's kind of ridiculous, that it seems like there can only be so many plus-size retailers, when there is a literal surfeit of "straight" sized retailers, but that's a debate for another day. My most popular post EVAR on Vanity Curve's FB page was a regram of the announcement of the plus size line for Charlotte Russe.


People were excited guys.

And I get it, the clothes are cute, trendy and relatively inexpensive. Whenever I cross the border to do some shopping, I alway hit Charlotte Russe for their shoes and jewelry. Sadly, though, I think I am getting on in years to be wearing Charlotte Russe clothes, and when I checked out the line online, I was pretty much correct. A lot of the pieces are not for me. However, there were a few that I would totally love to give a try (the next time I am in the States and hit a Charlotte Russe store). 

Kudos the the CS people for creating a plus line, for making it pretty freaking big (there's 155 pieces. and that's not a couple pieces in a bunch of different colors/patterns, if you know what I mean) and for featuring a model that is ACTUALLY plus size. Granted, she's a "good fatty" (hourglass), but still, she has the lumps and bumps that most human women have. 

OK, on to the clothes...


I'm kinda jazzed that rompers are still going strong this S/S. There's like at least 4 on offer at CR. This is my preferred one. The pattern is strong, but nice, and vaguely reminiscent of chevron, which I am still in love with. Hope that never goes away either.
  
Chambray shirt. I still think it's one of the new neutrals, one of those things you can pair with any color or pattern. I have a long and generous denim tunic, but I really like the pockets, tabbed sleeves, and pale wash of this this one. I want it so I can pair it with that striped black and white skirt from the Target line, and ties it under my bust. Yas.



I am always throwing a cami under my blazers, and I need to branch out, and I think this is just the thing. Also, I love lace. Also, I love it when black and white is paired in a way that doesn't make the wearer look like a server at a high-end steak house. 

The striped dress. A) love the big wide stripes B) love the fit and flare. I don't have a lot of fit and flare, and I think I need more in my life.

I love anything with gathering, be it knots, pleats, ruching, what-have-you. So I dig this. It's different.

I'm seeing lots of this kind of asymmetric hems on skirts and dresses, on the CR line, and in other places. I'm instantly drawn to this for that, and for the black edging. Me likey.


There aren't too many pieces that I would pick from the CR plus size line, but they are junior plus, right? And I am not junior... I guess that makes me senior plus?
