Hey PHAT Girls!

Let’s have cloth talk (in my DJ Khaled voice) today… Literally! You guessed it, I want to talk a little about clothes. How many of you will admit that you have at least one item in your closet that you are obsessed with? You know that article of clothing that you continuously find a way to incorporate into your wardrobe. This article of clothing may be bold and it may be a statement piece but for most it is something that is versatile and that has the ability to be styled may ways.


While writing this post, I asked my Facebook friends and family what was the one item that they had to have in their closet. Some gave answers that were expected, like jeans, LBD’s and camisoles. However, others mentioned things like, jumper, red leather coats and dresses from specific brands.

Except for loving black and having a ton of black clothing, I never realized that I had a constant in my wardrobe too.  Now I love a good maxi (skirt or dress) but based on my closet and photos, It seems that I am a bit obsessed with one particular maxi. That maxi is the “ Eternity Maxi Convertible Dress” by SWAK Designs.

Yep, I have owned 5 of these dresses in different color and length variations. My favorite colors are red and black and as luck would have it, those are the two I can no longer have. I gave the red one to a friend after she begged and guilt tripped me with, “you so many clothes, you can give it to me”. The black got burnt when I thought I was Jack (be nimble) and attempted to reach over a candlestick. However, I will be placing an order in the near future.

I just love an article of clothing that I can do the most and the least with and the maxi allows me to do just that. I have worn them as both a dress and a skirt and I have styled them with sneakers, a bustier, a denim jackets, pumps and gaudy jewelry.

Oh and did I mention that this maxi dress is sized up to a 6x. YASSSS! This is a fabulous dress that can be worn for a skirt and is available in amazing colors for extended plus size women too.Maui Bigelow of PHAT Girl Fresh

    Love this dress on you. I honestly think my can’t life without is a white t-shirt. I have so many of them, but they are my wardrobe staples.
