~Chubby Cartwheels Curves Reign II Collection~

Last year, I teamed up with indie plus size designer Shawna Farmer of Chubby Cartwheels to co-design the plus size fashion collection called the Curves Reign Collection, which featured the beloved Boleyn Dress, a maxi-length sheer dress that came in both mesh and lace. This dress (and the entire collection) captured my love for royal-inspired fashion, which I believe helps to bring out your own inner Queen. 

This year, Chubby Cartwheels and I teamed up once again to bring some royal, witchy, fairy-tale -inspired fashion to the plus size community with the Curves Reign II Collection.

This year's collection featured another maxi-length dress (called the "Stevie" Dress, an ode to Stevie Nicks) only we changed the fabric to a lovely stretch-cotton, and added some drama to the sleeves by making them draped and voluminous.

This gorgeous dress can be worn all season long (depending on what accessories you want to rock with it) and comes in dusty rose pink, grey, and black.

Next, we decided to bring even more witchy, fairy-tale inspo to the collection by including Velvet Hooded Capelets - available in "Red Riding Hood" red, or "Witch of the Woods" black.

Next, we wanted to incorporate my love for florals by creating yet another "Courtney" Skater Dress. When I spoke with Shawna about what I was thinking, she knew just what I wanted, and showed me a fabric that I absolutely fell in love with instantly.

Lastly, we wanted to include an accessory that would be worthy of any fashion queen, and thus the Queen Cartwheels Choker was selected; This elaborate lace and chain choker is the statement piece you have been waiting for.  It has a gold lace design that lays around your neck with an adjustable chain in the back and delicate gold chains draping against your chest and around your shoulders for a regal look that will have people turning heads.

It was an absolute dream  to once again collaborate with this amazing designer (and one of my best friends) to create another whimsical, dreamy, royal fairy-tale inspired collection. Here's wishing all my fellow #Queens fierceness and strength while rocking these pieces in all their fabulous glory!
