Today’s post is the finale in a 3 part series highlighting my recent visit to a local boutique, SexyPlus Clothing located in Mississauga Ontario.
So I talked in my previous posts about the boutique being known for its formal wear and cocktail dresses. I guess it’s about time then that I actually do a post highlighting a great cocktail dress that I fell in love with!
To start off with the boutique carries some of my favourite brands including IGIGI, Kiyonna and SWAK Designs. So for all of my readers who don’t like to shop online, SexyPlus is your one stop shop where you can try these brands on before you buy.
In speaking with Stefanie I found out that she carries up to a 4x in store. I am generally a 4x in these brands and I had more than 6 different dresses that I could try on. The great thing about carrying these quality brands is that their sizing is very consistent.
What I found even better is the level of customer service that Stefanie is willing to provide. What happens if you need a 5x or she doesn’t have your size in stock? Stefanie is happy to order it in for you! This also includes other styles that she may not have in the store. And you may ask yourself, well what if I don’t like it? Well here’s the great part – Stefanie will give you store credit towards something else and it doesn’t have to be the same brand. I say that’s a win win situation.
Another thing that I learned was that she will also order in wedding dresses. All of these brands have beautiful bridal options and I never even thought that she would because it is something you would generally go to a bridal boutique for. I really liked this because if you tried on other pieces from the brand and got a sense of what size fits you and what shapes work for your body type you would automatically be more comfortable ordering that all important garment in without trying it on. And let’s be honest, although I can’t speak from personal experience I do know that shopping for a plus size bridal dress can be difficult so imagine how nice it would be to have it delivered to a store and actually going to go and try it on instead of taking it out of a shipping box. And then you have someone there to help you with that special moment.
So let’s talk about my final pick. This gorgeous cocktail dress is by Kiyonna and is called the “Scalloped Boudoir Lace Dress in Black and Nude“. This dress is feminine, flirty, sexy and classy all in one. From the 3/4 sleeve to the beautiful scalloped v neckline and the knee length hem, every detail is perfect. I love the lace with the nude underneath, it felt so sophisticated. A body con dress is not necessarily my go to choice but this hugs my curves in all the right places without being too sexy.
This piece is timeless and would be appropriate for so many functions that it would be a great wardrobe staple. It is a style that has stood the test of time so the great news is that this is a signature piece for Kiyonna and a dress that SexyPlus carries all year round in this and also in all black. There are also other seasonal colours available. I am wearing the 4x.
To style this look I decided to keep things simple as I wanted to the dress to speak for itself. I went with a sleek pulled back bun for my hair, a pair of statement earrings from SexyPlus that added a little pop of colour and my go to nude sling back heels. In the end, I felt absolutely stunning and powerful.
So this wraps up my series on SexyPlus. I hope you see the versatility in what they have to offer and that a boutique can certainly be a one stop shopping destination. And for ladies that are my size, venture out there because yeah! We found another place to shop! Now if you don’t live close, fear not you can still order from Stefanie online.
Ok, now I’m ready for a cocktail…
A special thank you to Stefanie for her beautiful photography.
