*Cough Cough* So…you might remember a post I wrote called, Charming Charlie Plus Size Fail. I know, that’s a pretty harsh title. I’m not one to give negative reviews — if I don’t like it, I won’t write about it. However, being such a big fan of Charming Charlie, I felt compelled to share my disappointment with them not releasing their plus size collection to be purchased in stores. Read more about that, here. Although disappointed, I recognize that we all make mistakes — brands included — there’s a learning curve to everything new.
Charming Charlie’s mission statement is to help every woman, everywhere find her fabulous. I am excited to say that they are now living up to this mission, and their plus size collection, CC Curve, is now available in stores! Exciting news right? Here’s something else exciting…I am a CC Curve Ambassador for the Charming Charlie brand! I’m super honored to be an ambassador, and can’t wait to share with you some of the amazing looks from the CC Curve Collection.
Starting with these three looks…
Top, Earrings, Bracelet, Sunglasses C/O Charming Charlie
Charming Charlie’s new plus size collection, CC Curve, is my new favorite shopping destination for women sizes 16-24 (1x-3x). I mentioned before that Charming Charlie is my number one place for jewelry and handbags, its amazing to now go there for cute clothes! They have items that you can find in all sizes, but also pieces that are exclusive to the CC Curve Collection.
For the longest time, my shoulders and arms were a part of my body that I tried to hide. I didn’t want people to see the stretch marks that graced them. Its amazing what time and self-reflection can do, because now, I show off these parts of my body every chance I get. So this green off the shoulder top is just perfect for my new-found confidence. One struggle that I’ve had with similar tops is that they never want to stay in place, but the elastic band on this Charming Charlie top keeps it perfectly in place throughout the day. I call this my ‘pineapple dream’ shirt. The funny thing is, I don’t even like pineapples, but I love how they look on this top…such a cool pattern. I’ve been on the trend of tucking my tops into my jeans, but you could easily wear it as is, or maybe even do a tie-knot for a little extra flair.
Dress, Earrings, Bracelet C/O Charming Charlie
Words cannot express how much I love this dress. Its such a pretty shade of blue, and the contrasting cherry embroidery adds just enough pop of color to my look. Its literally the perfect dress for Summer, I can see me wearing this to many family cookouts. Again, one of my favorite things about this dress is that it shows off my shoulders with its cold-shoulder neckline. As a plus size woman, I love how flattering this dress is for my body type. With an elastic waistline, it fits and flows in all the right places.
Now, I wouldn’t be the Pink Caboodle without showing you something pink. This pink shift dress from the Charming Charlie Plus Size CC Curve Collection is everything! Its such a pretty shade of pink.

Besides the color, one of the things I love most about this dress is its neckline. I don’t have many tops like this, and I love how the neckline comes together with the slit sleeves. Maybe its just me, but I feel like theirs something super elegant and flirty about this dress.
Did you know florals are in style this season? I used to feel gaudy when wearing a floral top or dress…I guess still in that mindset that big girls shouldn’t wear too many patterns. Whoever came up with this myth, clearly doesn’t understand the power of self-love and acceptance, because when you feel good about yourself — and own your body — it doesn’t matter what you wear. It matters how you feel. And in this floral pink dress from Charming Charlie’s new Plus Size collection, I felt absolutely amazing.
Last, but certainly not least, the accessories! I’m all about my accessories, and these certainly did not disappoint. Rose-gold is my favorite for jewelry, and Charming Charlie came through with these rose-gold sunglasses, bracelet, and earrings! I love how feminine and dainty they are. Charming Charlie pays great attention to detail, even down to the faux diamonds on the draw strings of this rose-gold bracelet. I’m obsessed…
