As someone who as shopped in the Plus Size world for about 15 years, I’ve dealt with a lot of frustration. It’s hard to find quality, plus size clothes that are stylish. This is where Michelle from Apricot Collection comes in.
Back in January Michelle approached me regarding a review, but unfortunately I had to turn her down because she didn’t carry plus size clothes. Well little did I know that this response would spark the beginning of an awesome relationship!
As it turns out Michelle had been wanting to expand into plus sizes and in talking to me was inspired to make it happen as soon as she could! The best part was she let me be a large part of the process! She asked my opinion on all types of things including the lines that she was looking at. Michelle was so sweet and grateful for my help, it was a true pleasure to work with her! This is why it was a no-brainer when she asked me to be the Plus Size Ambassador for Apricot Collection! Talk about an honor!
As my first duty as the Plus Size Ambassador for Apricot Collection, I get to review to gorgeous pieces from the Plus Size collection, which is by Allistyle. Sadly these pieces are no longer available, but she does have others currently available from the same Allistyle line and they are just as gorgeous!
The first piece I received to review was the Classic Tee in Allistyle violet. Not only is the color on this tee beautiful, but the material is nothing short of luxurious. It is soft and silky to the touch and feels amazing against your skin. Just by touching the shirt you can tell that it is excellent quality, which is something I just love. I hate when clothing feels and looks cheap.
Once I got past the quality of the material and the beautiful color of the tee, I also couldn’t help but fall in love with the look. This is not your average tee; it is far classier. The neckline is beautiful and I love the band around the waste. This tee can easily be worn with a skirt or a pair of jeans and look equally amazing.
The second piece I received to review was the Wrap It Up wrap in Allistyle black. Again the quality of the material was fabulous. You can tell that these pieces will last a very long time, if taken care of properly!
What I love about the Wrap It Up is that you can wear it several different ways. Sadly because I’m so short, I feel like I’m a little more limited as a few of the ways look a little too long on me, unless I’m wearing heels. I love to wear this piece knotted at the waist and also crossed over at the waist and tied behind my back.
The Wrap It Up is another piece that can be worn with a dress, a pair of jeans, dressy slacks, etc. It is highly versatile and incredibly stylish; I just love it!
