An Explosion in the Blogosphere
Posted on November 12 2014
We are obsessed with the plus size fashion blogosphere. Actually, that's how we got our start. Our founder, Aimee Cheshire, was a blogger long before she created (and curated) Hey Gorgeous! We just can't get enough of curvy girls wearing avant-garde looks.
Behind what many are calling the plus size revolution is plus fashion bloggers, starting daring styles on the street, snapping photos, and posting them for all to awe over.
Getting featured in a blog post is a great feeling- we absolutely love seeing our products in action!
A popular piece in the plus blogosphere right now? The edgy and cool Hoodie Dress by Line & Label.
This look? So cute! It was featured on Sarah, the brains and beauty behind Curvily Fashion who wore this dress to debut her cool new punky hair color.
Sarah wrote, "The trim and skirt are made of real leather, something that is increasingly hard to find. The fit is great – it has a relaxed shift silhouette, without being overly boxy." Read it here.
Love it! Thanks Curvily!
Great accessories- we love the rings, the chunky chained necklace, and the hat!
Ray wrote, "I can wear it in the morning to a meeting or errands around the town or in the evening for a drink with friends. Casual but with a twist, and I love the deep neck here, Very sexy and flattering." Read it on her blog here.
We love to get inspired by bloggers. Both of these ladies look fantastic in this dress but we love how they each really made it their own. Here's a few more ideas:
Mix camel and black- it's a big trend this season. This black dress is a great canvas for cool accessories so layer them on!
This dress has an edgy feel to it, so play it up! Throw on the Leather Applique Military Jacket, also by Line & Label, and a pair of moto boots.
Have you heard the story behind the brand Line & Label? Our co-founder, Aimee Cheshire, loved wandering into the Line & Label shop in her neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. She noticed that the shop owner was creating everything in the back room on her sewing machine. Aimee asked if she was interested in designing for plus, and sure enough her plus line is now only available on Hey Gorgeous! We love how finally we can see cutting edge design for plus- like this amazing Leather Hoodie Dress.
