I am totally swooning with excitement over the newest Holiday Collection by one of my fav plus size boutiques, Monif C. This collection totally embodies glitz, glamour, and just pure fabulousness.

What’s even better is that there are 4 dresses that totally capture the four characters of SATC and what they would wear if they were plus size. The items retail between $200-250 and you can pre-order them now for shipment as early as November 18th. My only beef is that the “Samantha” dress that I want doesn’t ship until December 5th. Y’all know I love me some sequins! Doesn’t Monif know that the Holidays begin with my birthday on November 4th. I am hoping my local plus size boutique, K Staton in Hampden, has this collection before that.

I’ve been begging Paco to make me another but between his NY move and my busy schedule I’ve now resorted to helping Forever 21 pay their electricity (being that I spend my entire check there).
