Kiyonna's Caycee Twist Top Review

Hey! Long time, no outfit post. Sorry about that. Now that the holidays are here, my work schedule has doubled. Yay for being a grown up (said sarcastically). Luckily I have a planner to keep me organized and fall/winter wardrobe staples to keep me clothed. Kiyonna's Caycee Twist Top instantly became a closet staple the moment I first tried it on.

Kiyonna consistently does a great job with their tops. The sleeves always fit well. The fabric is uber soft and drapes nicely over the stomach. And the details, like the double twist in the center, take an ordinary shirt to the next level---a sophisticated, but wearable-everyday kind of level. This top runs true to size (I'm wearing a 3X), with a hip-length, which is great for taller plus size women that have a hard time finding longer tops. It's available in a few colors, but I had to go with the pinky peach option called "Peach Mimosa." It's the perfect, bright blend of pink and peach, especially for the busy winter days that lie ahead.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading the blog. I hope you take care and have a great week!

Early Fall Outfits with Living Doll LA

I can’t believe I’m about to write this: I wish I lived somewhere other than California right now. I love my state and my city, but I hate that our fall doesn’t come around until November-ish, if we’re lucky. While the rest of you are sipping on hot coffee and bundling up with chunky sweaters and knee high boots, I’m over here sweating and drinking an iced latte. Nope, I’m not bitter. 

All that aside, the warm weather did not stop me from putting together early fall outfits using pieces courtesy of Living Doll LA. Look #1 is my go-to for autumn: tee, cardigan, denim, boots, and tote. I screamed out loud when I first saw the Selfie tank on LDLA’s website. One could even describe it as love at first sight. What a great way to pay homage to my profession, generation, and advocacy for self-love than wearing, “Believe in your selfie,” across my upper body.

Look #2 is for those moments when I need a little edge in my life---because leather sleeves always makes me feel like a badass. I toughened up the naturally sweet Sophie skater dress with a military-inspired jacket, multi-layered necklace, and combat boots. However, I could easily keep it soft and sweet by pairing it with the boyfriend cardigan from look #1; that’s a combo you’ll see in a LDLA Lookbook video I’m currently editing.

I love Living Doll’s cool, edgy, sweet, fun, and versatile approach to fashion. There’s something for every style personality and sizes up to 3X. Click here to peruse their website for more fashion finds. Use the code Amanda10 at checkout to save 10% on your purchase!
