Where my curvy ladies at? Do you suffer from aggressive thigh chaffing and wedgies every time you wear denim shorts?
If you answered yes, keep reading.
I solved all my denim shorts problems a couple of years ago when I wrote this post about the AGOLDE parker shorts, but flash forward to today and your girl needs a little extra length in her jorts.
With a worn-in vintage feel, the new long AGOLDE high-rise cut-offs are easy to pair with everything from graphic tees to a lightweight sweater. With a super flattering fit and new longer length, these are guaranteed to become your new summer staple.
Golden Goose sneakers are all the rage these days, and I totally get it! They are so easy to slide on and go. Style them with a sweatsuit or a t-shirt and leggings. They have that effortlessly cool factor to them, and will quickly become the most worn item in your closet.
Now, I know they are an investment and they aren’t for everyone!
So keep on scrolling if they aren’t for you!
For me, I am in sneakers the majority of the time. I live in a city filled with hills and enjoy walking pretty much everywhere.
Golden Goose is an Italian brand founded by Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo in 2000. They considered themselves “outsiders” in the fashion world, and never played by the rules. Perhaps that’s why they have become such a cult favorite; their authenticity and boldness paved their own way.
Golden Goose Sizing
One of the first topics I researched after deciding to take the plunge to purchase my first pair of Golden Goose sneakers was sizing. I wear a very true US size 8 – Italian size 38.
Since they are an Italian brand, the sizing is in the Italian standard. (Example: 36-42.)
We have a Golden Goose store in San Francisco so I headed over to the store in Union Square and tried on the most popular styles. Again, I wear a size a US size 8 – Italian size 38 with a thin sock and I would describe my feet as narrow.
Golden Goose Superstar Sizing – true to size
Golden Goose Midstar Sizing – size down one full size
Golden Goose Francy Sizing – size down one full size
* most Golden Goose styles only come in full sizes
Golden Goose Sales
One of the things the brand prides itself on is being extremely particular about who they let carry their shoes. Their branding must align, and it gives it more of an exclusive feel. They do smaller size runs of each style as well. (Meaning if you see one you like, scoop it up! They will sell out quickly.)
A few of the places that I have found to have GREAT selections of Golden Goose sneakers can be found below:

I’ve invested a great deal of time pricing out Golden Goose sneakers and I can say with confidence that you should NOT pay over $500 for any Golden Goose sneakers – unless they are a very special limited edition pair of shoes. Buy them from Europe and save way over $100 per pair!
A coatigan is a mixture of a cardigan and coat combined. It is a stylish piece of fashion that is an all year rounder. Great for cool summer evening and fab as the cold days of winter kick in. It is lighter than a traditional winter coat yet warmer than a cardigan. The coatigan is one of those fashion pieces you won’t think is essential until you actually have one.
It helps bridge that awkwardness between-seasons period when a cooler climate can reap havoc with your wardrobe.
If you’re a curvy girl, then you’re all too aware of how difficult it can be to find a romper that fits your entire body the right way. Luckily, some brands kinda get that and one brand really gets it -> Show Me Your Mumu. To save you from seeking it out on your own, below you’ll find the best curvy girl romper, an actual dream for my curvy ladies!
This oversized romper is perfect for warm weather!
Her lightweight fabric lends a breezy feel, and her front buttons allow you to wear her buttoned-up or unbuttoned for a more relaxed look. Wear her as a coverup to the beach or out to brunch with your ladies, with the Horton Romper options are endless.
I know all the curvy fashionistas out there remember when Reformation launched. All my thin tall friends were raving about this new sustainable brand with the BEST dresses. I went straight to their website and after one look I knew that these dresses were NOT for me. They were all cut straight up and down with ZERO room for curves <- 100% NOT for me!
Flash forward to today, 10 years later and this brand is not only one of the most sustainable brands in the US, they are producing a full range of products made in sizes for everyone. For this post I selected my top dresses for my curvy ladies. These dresses are all adjustable and made of stretchy fabrics with hidden benefits.
For brides, bridesmaids, and those attending their 17th wedding this year, this dress can DO IT ALL! I wore it to a wedding (above) with my cousin -> both in a medium.
This is a v-neck, wrap dress with kimono sleeves and a relaxed fit throughout. The relaxed fit is EVERYTHING you need in a dress. Wrap it up tight for the photos and loosen it up once you’ve hit the buffet.
Tie it on and go. This oh-so-flattering midi-length dress features a scoop neckline (bra-friendly), a wrap skirt and waist tie. The key benefit of this dress is the wrap skirt. The faux wrap is EVERYTHING you need in an LBD. It acts as Spanx without the discomfort and conceals any kind of a tummy pooch.
Of all the Reformation dresses for curvy girls, this one is a must in your capsule wardrobe!
