Clements Ribeiro Plus Size Collection for Evans

I can't believe Dallas has had some day where I can logically wear my new spring coat.   I thought I was going to have to wait until next year to whip out this Clements Ribeiro for Evans piece.  This coat gave me the perfect opportunity to switch things up with this skirt, a  previously worn piece.  I love the combination of these three prints.  It's so fun!  

Clements Riberio Collection for Evans
Some of you may be wondering about the Clements Ribeiro Plus Size Collection for Evans.  I have to be honest, I had never heard of this designer before Evans put out the line.  I must say I could see myself buying almost every piece.   I actually bought two items, this coat and this dress.  I decided to keep the coat.  It is so hard to find a fabulous plus size spring coat. The definitely coat gave me a Carrie Bradshaw feel.  Her coats so effortlessly stepped up her outfits.  Anyways, the fabric was lovely and the weight of the coat was just perfect for those chillier spring days.  I will say the dress I bought and returned was cut extremely straight.  It was a beautiful dress and I would have loved to try a different size, but Evans doesn't have free shipping or free returns.  That was a turn off for me.  I suggest if you order, order one size up and be prepared to get it tailored if you have a curvier body type.  For you straighter gals this may be the perfect fit for you.  I didn't hear a lot of hype around this collection, I am thinking it was because of the price points.  This line was a bit more expensive than the regular Evans clothing.  I thought the clothes were well worth the price though.  From what I saw, the clothing matches the pricing.

  5. I never ordered from Evans, but I have been curious about the fit. This post was helpful! I have dabbled into Dorothy Perkins and New Look, but never this UK based store. Fab look:-)

    1. I will say that this Collection is a lot more structured than their regular stuff...it seemed to be correct sizing. Regular Evans clothing runs a little big to me.

  6. I do have a question about shapewear, in the winter for some outfits I wear it and find it to be perfect to wear but in the warmer days I fear that I would be so hot, do you find that happening or does the brand you wear not cause that? I also love the outfit!

    1. They have some that actually attach to your bra --- I havent tried, but looks like it may work

  8. I so love that coat. And I agree that Carrie's coats and blazers always stepped up her outfit game. I'm also mad that I missed out on the ASOS skirt. You look very NYC chic in this.

  9. Love the print of the coat! It can be worn with so many things. I saw the skirt on ASOS but was too chicken to buy it. It looks marvelous on you! I like that you arent afraid to try different trends. You look great!

  10. This jacket is super dope! I saw this line when it 1st came out and I loved the sheer maxi dress. Pattern mixing is one of my favorite things to do. Love it! Oh and I would die without my SPANX! lol Kiah

  17. You look great in belts!! What full figured shapes do you think can get away with belts? All or just certain body shapes?

    Thank you

    1. I think all can wear them you just have to find the waist that is most flattering for your body. Most plus size women have a upper (under the bust), middle (around the belly button), and lower waist. Try all 3 areas and find that one that best works for you body type
