Let’s jump for jumpsuits :)

Jumpsuits are so on trend this summer. I’ve always loved jumpsuits, but until recently I never wore them because they were never long enough for me, can you say HIGHWATERS! lol…Last summer I got my first jumpsuit from Long Tall Sally, and this year more sites have been selling them for us tall-ies! I love them. They are cool in the summer and allow for the breeze to help beat the heat. Below are some of the jumpsuits I have been wearing. I like them made from cotton or viscose. One is made from polyester and the material doesn’t breath as much on really hot days.

This jumpsuit is from Long Tall Sally. I got it last year sometime so there are no more just like this, however, they do have other jumpsuits on sale now here. This one is polyester, so doesn’t breath as well as the other jumpsuits featured. But I still like the designs on it, and most importantly, it FITS!

The next two suits are from Alloy Apparel. This one, the Rachel wide leg jumpsuit can be found here. I absolutely love this one. The material is thin but not see through, and breathable so definitely good for hot weather. Best of all inseam is 37in! Long enough for me to wear with heels if I want! In fact in these pics I’m wearing 3in wedges. Don’t worry it also comes in regular length. I paired it with a thin cardigan (since it is sleeveless) from Target, perfect for layering in hot weather since it is thin material. I hate wearing thick cardigans when it’s hot out. I also love the tribal like design on this one. 037 041

Last but not least is yet another jumpsuit I got from Alloy Apparel. This one is also made from thin cottony material that catches the breeze nicely. I wanted a solid color as well as a pattern, so I chose this one because who doesn’t like an olive green? It’s a neutral so can go with pretty much anything, which is great for me since I have lots of colored and patterned cardigans that I wear to work. I have worn this jumpsuit to work with heels and a black cardigan, but in these pics I dressed more casual for the weekend with a peach cardigan from Old Navy. Old Navy and Target both sell seasonal cardigans- thinner in the summer and thicker for the fall/winter months. Added a peach lace scarf around my neck from Styled by Zubaidah for neck coverage. This particular jumpsuit is sold out, but a similar one can be found here.496 507 497

That time I met Zubaidah …

Hi guys!!! If any of you follow me on instagram or facebook, then you have already seen that I got to model some of Styled by Zubaidah’s spring dresses. I met her at a convention not only did I get to wear a couple of her fabulous dresses, I also got a little impromptu interview. I was super excited because I have been following Styled by Zubaidah on Insta for awhile and I love her dresses. Here is my mini interview and pictures:

Who is Styled by Zubaidah? Do you know? Zubaidah originally started her company selling unique jewelry. Now she sells women’s fashion and specializes in selling sizes 12-22. How amazing is that? A company especially for us curvier women, because guess what, we want to look fashionable too!! Not only does Zubaidah run her company designing beautiful women’s fashion she is also a wife and mommy and has a full time job outside of running this business. A woman after my own heart! I asked her about her background and what made her want to start this company.

When asked about her clothing she said, she likes to make things that have some stretch to it. Stretchy material is great for curvier women,  she wants to make sure the clothes fit comfortably.

I asked her how does she build up clientele. Her response was mostly word of mouth and events. She has a quality product that people want to spend their money on, and its modest. For example, the cardigans I’m wearing in the pictures wasn’t sheer, so would not require much layering especially during the hot summer.  She does post on social media as well.

Lastly I asked her what is her biggest challenge-? Like a true designer, her answer was, redefining , staying relevant, having things that fit the curvier women that they will feel comfortable in. Doing this AND being a mother  (finding the time for it all). However, even with these challenges, she loves it and does it for the pleasure of her lord. Providing women with clothes that they can feel beautiful in, while still maintaining their modesty.

I am great full I got to meet Zubaidah and I look forward to meeting up with her again in the near future iA!

Now, how about these dresses and cardigans? They are all available here.
