On the Bright Side

Whenever I need a little boost to my mood, I opt for a colorful outfit.  There’s just something about wearing color that just lifts my spirits, and this beautiful yellow dress from Lafayette 148 New York did just that.  Not only is the color lovely (and one of my favorites to wear), the fit, construction and quality are absolutely amazing.  I also love  the versatility of this dress.  It can easily be worn to the office, dinner, church and almost everything in between.

Now, I realize that Lafayette’s price point for its pieces may be challenging to fit into our shopping budgets, but their pieces are definitely worth the investment.  Unlike so many of the fast fashion options available to plus-size women, Lafayette’s clothes are investment pieces, which means you will have them for years to come and they will still look just as good as when you first purchased them.

If you are looking for a couple of great investment pieces to add to your wardrobe for a bit of a discount, I suggest checking out their sale section (here) because they usually have some very nice pieces on sale for great prices.  Also, do not limit yourself to just their plus-size options as their regular line is available up to a size 18 (sale options here).

What do you think of Lafayette 148 New York? Will you give their beautiful, high quality pieces a try?
