My husband and I will be making our annual visit to Vegas in October so deciding what to wear has been on my mind for weeks; ok maybe months. It’s the only trip we take without the family, so planning a fun and romantic trip is top priority. We usually stay at Excalibur since it’s close to New York New York and MGM, but this time we decided to treat ourselves and will be staying at Treasure Island. We had such a blast at Kahunaville last time, we wanted to stay close by. Oh, and this time we’re actually staying two weekends in a row; my husband will fly in and out for work. This trip is our opportunity to decompress and have some fun as a couple, so we’re planning on taking in Zumanity and Beacher’s Madhouse; Zumanity is a must for an couple spending the weekend in Vegas – check it out if you haven’t seen it! Top off those plans with some sight-seeing and fine dining and we have the perfect weekend.
This great mix of activities requires some fabulous fashion. Since finding stylish plus size clothes can be challenging any day, I started my search early and looked to some of my favorite plus size retailers to deliver just the right styles for my trip.
I found this black dress from Eshakti.com in their bridal section in August. I already had the red one below, so I knew it would be fabulous. The dress is made of crepe fabric and is well lined. The skirt is full and it has wonderful big pockets. Adding a little white sweater dresses it down a bit making it perfect for daytime wear. It’s really a very comfortable dress and will work with flats for doing a lot of walking.
When I saw this dress from Eshakti.com, it was love at first sight. The cream and black is very trendy this season and the Grecian styling is very flattering. It looks perfect for wearing to dinner with a black pashmina. The length is perfect for heels or flats, making it a great for taking an after dinner stroll in. As usual, I had it custom made, so the fit is perfect. This dress is also made of crepe, which is my favorite fabric for dresses at this shop.
Red is my husband’s favorite dress color, so naturally I’m packing this dress from Eshakti.com in red too. It’s just like the black one and looks smashing with a bold statement necklace and strappy sandals. Perhaps I’ll wear this one to Beacher’s Madhouse or maybe to Kahunaville since it moves great for dancing.
Now for something casual! This dress is my favorite find from Eshakti.com’s fall collection. It’s so comfortable in the ankle length skirt. I love the draped front, which makes it a little more special than your typical knit dress. All I need is to slip on some flats and I’m ready to go check out the sights!
This dress made me take the leap from Igigi.com browser to buyer! I absolutely love the print and shrug. It’s perfect for a night at the theater followed by dancing the night away. I’ve been dying to wear this dress since it arrived this summer. The fabric is so wonderful and moves with all kinds of drama.
What’s a romantic weekend without a comfy bodycon dress to show off your curves? I love the rich color of this one from Asos.com and found this perfect floral print kimono to pair it with there too. A kimono works great with a bodycon dress to give you a little extra coverage or warmth on cool Vegas nights.
This cream and black outfit is one of my favorites for spending some casual time taking in the sights. It’s all about comfort and ease of wear. The swing tank top is from Evans.com, the cami is from LaneBryant.com, and the skirt is from Zulily.com. It’s all made from really light weight materials, making it the perfect option for a hot day on the strip. If it happens to be chilly, I can always add the black blazer from the next outfit or a pashmina.
Let’s not forget something stylish, yet comfortable to fly home in! I love these window pane print pants in crepe and easy black t-shirt I picked up at LaneBryant.com last spring. The jacket is one I picked up from LaneBryant.com this fall. I like a jacket for flying since airplanes can be rather chilly. Plus, I can easily put the earrings and any other accessories I decide to wear in my jacket pocket until I get through security since it has to come off anyways.
Overall, I love this combination of outfits to carry me through a couple romantic weekends with my husband. There are so many stylish clothes for plus size women available today, the really hard part was narrowing down my choices so they would all fit in one suitcase! The real key in packing is keeping the number of pairs of shoes you’re taking to a reasonable number since they tend to take up the most space in your suitcase. Plus, you need to leave some room to bring home souvenirs and great style finds. Fashion Show Mall here I come (another great reason to stay at Treasure Island since it’s across the street)!
