 El Expresso

Sydney's Closet caught the eye of editors at El Expresso newspaper in Puerto Rico who noted with Christmas just weeks the new Celebrations Collection lets curvy girls  find  fashionable dresses that truly flatter their figures. " We are always looking for ways to accentuate our individual silhouette,"  they wrote adding Puerto Rico girls have a tendency for having voluptuous figures.  The editors loved the   "minimalist styles" I designed.  I created those style to deliberately avoid adding volume to the full figure.  Who needs all those fussy details to have fun at a fiesta! The wise editors caution readers to avoid waiting to shop until the last minute if you want to stand out as a holiday bash.  I couldn't agree more!.  You will be very glad you planned ahead. As the article says, and we translate:  "If you look good, you will feel good and you will have more fun!"

Diario Las Americas

diariolasamericas2 Closer to home in Miami, writer  Yadira Velez Martinez offered readers of Diario Las Americas tips on choosing the perfect plus size holiday party dress.  Avoid:
  • light colors if you're bottom heavy; instead stick with this season's must-have colors of red, gray and black
  • belts if your hips are wide or you'll highlight what you want to conceal
  • pleats that only add unwanted volume to a full figure
Thanks to Yadira for spotlighting our "Razzle Dazzle" little black  dress in sequins as a glam option for sparkling at holiday fiestas!
