|WRAP SKIRT // MESH TOP // SIMPLE SANDAL // CUFF // RED LIPSTICK|
I’ve been following Monif C. now for a while now, not just because her collections boasts of beautiful creations specifically made with the plus woman in mind, but also because I admire her entrepreneurial spirit. She is a total boss babe and like me she comes from a STEM background. So when I heard she was having another pop-up in DC I knew I had to be there.
I actually went with Ola & Viv, after perusing and almost buying a mustard jumpsuit I decided I’d go with something more classic cause what’s not more classic than a Black Pencil Skirt but this one had a twist .
I got the Skirt (SOLD OUT) in a size 1X 14/16 and that was pretty much my size in everything I tried. Although the skirt is a little snug, the next size up was a little too big. I would say her sizing is a true Women’s plus. So size down if you are used to shopping juniors ( Forever21/Asos).
I paired the Skirt with this Mesh white top (cropped) that I picked up from Fashion to Figure and simple sandals. Speaking of Fashion to Figure did you hear the BIG news if you didn’t SCROLL DOWN. I can totally see the skirt in the winter with a Turtleneck and some OTK boots.

Love the look.! I admire Monif C, too, for her fab designs, business savvy and her Caribbean roots. I no idea both you and Monif have STEM background.
It always surprises me to see so many creative fashion and style blogger and busness women who have STEM backgrounds, like me.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks Hun I'm not sure how it is in Caribbean families but in me & many of my friends African immigrant families you had only 2 recognized career paths be a doctor or a lawyer lol I didn't like writing so I ran away from law! Which is hilarious cause I'm a blogger now who actually writes to some extent
