Falling for Marla Wynne - A Thick Girl's Closet

Falling for Marla Wynne

8:17 AM

Hey Loves,

Back in June during Full Figured Fashion week I had the chance to attend an event by Marla Wynne & Hal Rubenstein. I was obsessed from the very beginning with what I saw. I was able to sit down with Marla for brunch a couple months later. I was all too excited to get to know the woman behind the brand and to delve a little deeper into what she does what she does. I just knew that I had get her clothing on my body ASAP. So when I got the chance to shot a few of her looks for a fall lookbook, I immediately called Myah of MJones Imaging (my homegirl & fave photographer) to set a shooting time.
A sweater & a fringe scarf is really all you need sometimes. My first look is casual and very much simple. Marla's turtle neck sweat is perfect for the crisp weather. The fringe scarf adds that extra bit of warmth. And honestly a fringe scarf is bada**. While it is perfect with a simple sweater & jeans you can easily toss this under a moto jacket with leggings.

Now on to these incredibly comfortable jeans! If you're on the market for some light weight, well structured but doesn't lose it's shape jeans. Marla has got you covered. I mean really, got you covered. I opted for the skinny leg cut because that is my preference. The have a side zip closure, but can easily be pulled on. These babies can be worn all day. You can go to breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner & drinks and by the end of the day, these will feel just as amazing as when you put them on in the morning.

A good duster works for any time of the year. Marla calls this the Drama cardigan and it is every bit of that. This light wool blend cardigan is what you need for the fall and well into the winter. And it has POCKETS!!! Marla had me at pockets. I paired this cardigan with Marla's butterfly top in ivory and her side pocket jeans.

Who says oversize shirts are a no-no? This top is just beautiful.  So light weight on the body and is perfect with black leggings or even jeans. For this look I paird this top with these black leggings from Marla's collection. The feature built in spanx but offer total comfort. What really drew me to these leggings was the velvet detailing along the side. They are perfect for a casual look or date night.
Can we talk about this Knit Cape?! Talk about fall fabulous. This is a great piece for the girl that loves that pop of color in her looks. In Marla fashion it's super light. You can easily keep warm & chic at the office and head to an after work dinner or event. It comes in 3 glorious colors; this beautiful gold, a subtle orange & an olive green. Either color you go with, you will be stunning.

Under neither the cape and I added one of Marla's butterfly tops in black & the black leggings from the 3rd look. Again I wanted to show the versatility of the leggings. 1 pair 2 totally different looks.
There you have it loves. All items can be found via HSN. Marla is an incredible designer that wants to make great clothing for great women. There is something for everyone in Marla Wynne's collection. For a closer look at all these pieces be sure to check my youtube video lookbook.

    Did you get the regular size or the plus size? The sizing for the cape was a little different than the usual HSN sizing. I've been eye-ing this cape since I saw your video! Right now, it's on clearance at a GREAT price.
