THERA WARREN is the fabulous beauty from the blog Cloud 14+ where she aims to inspire women to embrace their curves by sharing plus size styling ideas with emphasis on positive body image. We admire Thera because not only does she bedazzle our Facebook and Instagram feeds with her bold, glamorous, and seriously put-together looks, but she encourages confidence within her followers to finally wear those daring pieces they didn’t know how or when to wear. The best part is how she is completely devoted in following up with each and every one of her followers as much as she is a loyal advocate to the brands she wears.
In our interaction with Thera, she warmed our hearts as she shared, “I’m so obsessed with my supporters, I love interacting with all the women and it’s so completely rewarding. It’s so much more than fashion. I sincerely stand behind the Penningtons and mblm brands and love the direction it’s going.”
We are so honoured that Penningtons and mblm are on Thera’s list of favourites that we invited her to go ahead and take over our Penningtons location at Dufferin Mall in Toronto and to have fun showing us her take on our winter trends to share with all of us for styling inspiration. The following is Thera’s review and of course, she blew us away as always…
As a long time Penningtons customer I have witnesses the evolution from beautifully made classic pieces to stop in your tracks, jaw dropping, dazzling garments. Penningtons and MBLM has made it our time to shine. As beautiful curvy Canadians we now have the resources to drape our bodies in fabrics such as silver foil print, coated denim and crinkle faux leather. Let’s take a walk outside of our comfort zones and embrace the idea of fearless fashion.
Monochromatic looks have been displayed all over the runways this season. Typically in hues of black and white, why not up the ante in sleek silver.
MBLM has offered the most luxe and fabulous silver coated denim that are a complete dream. Paired with a grey and silver hologram MBLM tee brings casual chic to another level. Topped off with an animal print blazer adds additional texture and visual interest. Who knew jeans and a tee could be so phenomenal!
Tis the season of holiday dresses. Tradition has lead us to shades of red and sparkly sequin. Penningtons and MBLM’s new arrivals boasts an array of these styles to choose from. My personal favourite is the sleeveless lace dress, available in both black and red. This dress is classy yet flirty, perfectly appropriate for a family party or a New Year’s Eve bash.
Mixing prints and accessorizing is in tune with the Fall/Winter forecast. A printed pant in season appropriate hues is absolutely a must have in any fashionistas wardrobe.
I am thoroughly impressed with the assortment of accessory options. From scarves and necklaces to boots and handbags. Start with one statement piece or take the plunge with many. The spectrum of style is wide, leaving you the boss of your own fashion risks and rules.
The over all style snapshot of Penningtons is that of a sophisticated, self aware and ultra cool woman. A selection of pieces that are work wear chic to glam style goddess. Embrace your body and evolve your style with Penningtons and MBLM!
