One of the biggest things about the Fashion industry is it’s constantly looking for the next best thing, and innovation upon innovation. I, Orly Schwartz, love this. Recently from our shoot on Exorsisters (not yet available to view), I learned about this great company/subscription box called Dia & Co. They target the “plus size market”, and gives them great options for great fashion. Targeting 67% of the American market is what I like to see, and where I believe most brands should reach out to. Great style should not matter what size you wear, and your shopping experience should be just as fun and exciting as anyone else’s. Since we enjoy celebrating love, self love, body positivity. We got sent great options for our cast of Exorsisters, whom were size 14, and I was inspired to share our favorite looks just in time for Valentine’s Day! Even if you don’t have a date with a significant other, girlfriends, make a date with yourself and celebrate and find some great style with Dia & Co.
Here Moira, wears a simple black a line shift dress. This Dress we layered to get the right coverage from the character. She mentioned how comfortable it was, and would be a great peace to wear out as a little Black Dress.
Below I wear the teal version with a Rachel Zoe cardigan coat! Just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you always need to be in some variation of Red, White, or Pink!
Ladies in Red
Red was a prominent color sent to us, because of what we needed for Characters but the below three looks lit up our imagination of a romantic winter date night!
The Dress above is from Ralph Lauren, it’s a great option for Day to Night, especially since it can easily be made sexier with a pair of stilettos and pulling the split neck open a bit more!
This ox-blood Red dress went perfectly with my Celine Glasses, the A-line shape is flattering for many, I felt it was super comfortable and easy to move around in. Great for drinks and dancing. I loved the lace detail along the shoulders on the front and back, and the gold zipper made it easy to get in and out of!
This red dressed with scallop and pleat detail is absolutely as sweet as Moira is! The Square neck brings attention to beautiful face, the dress is the hits just above the knee which is a wonderful length on any height. This is perfect for a first date on Valentine’s Day!
From Pink & Floral to Glitter & Black
The floral pink bell sleeve dress you have seen before, all over our Instagram. I couldn’t help but love the this dress, not only for it’s modesty but being able to make it feel more rock’n’roll with black tights and combat boots. With it’s versatile shape and fun pattern, this dress will take you from Valentine’s Day to any summer’s day just switch out the tights for some great white converse! To dress this up, pair with heeled over-the-knee boots, and cute leather jacket!
This long jersey maxi dress in magenta, is the perfect comfortable and casual V-day outfit. I paired it with a creme cashmere cardigan from Captiva Cashmere. I would wear this to dinner and a movie, with easy flats & tights.
This black peplum dress has also been featured on our Instagram. I wore this in the city setting, as it’s high neck line, and classic shape can start you off in the office, paired with a great blazer, and go into night with classic pointed-toe pumps, and a bright red wrap scarf. This dress would work well in any five star restaurant this V-day!
Moira modeled this great glittery swing dress. With a black base color, this would be a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe. Get you from this V-day to next New Year’s Eve. It will sparkle under any disco ball to dance the night away.
