The holiday season has officially begun! As we are quick to make our shopping lists for others, it’s easy to overlook our own self care. This holiday season, don’t forget to take care of yourself and allow yourself to feel good! I can always count on Maggy London to make me look and feel amazing year-round, but especially during the holidays. In case you missed it, I featured my favorite Maggy London looks a few weeks ago.

This week’s Try On Confidential is a reader’s choice: ASOS! I’m really excited about this one. Just so you know, I read every message and piece of feedback that you give me- it is very much appreciated! ASOS has been one of those brands that I’ve always admired from afar. I find myself scrolling through their website often and asking people “where’d ya get that?” with them replying “ASOS!” But I’ve never actually gone through with ordering from them… until this week!
They literally have something for everyone. ASOS is incredibly size inclusive for men + women (regular, petite, plus and tall). Their price range is pretty great too - you can find low to medium priced items. They offer clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty and gifting. Two thumbs up!
I reached out to ASOS and told them about my Try On Confidential series and they were kind enough to send me six items, which will be featured on my IG stories. I’ve been getting a few requests for accessories so I decided to try a few of those too! Here are my six picks + some other things I’m loving off of their site lately. All images are shoppable, you can click them and it’ll bring you directly to the site!

This week’s Try On Confidential decision to feature Rent The Runway was fueled around this pretty red dress that I wore to my Sonoma trip last week. I’ve seriously never received so many messages about a dress before, I knew I needed to feature it this week. I’ve been a longtime Rent the Runway fan, using it as my go-to for special events. It’s so easy- they send you the items with a pre-paid UPS label and you send back the worn clothes when you’re done with them. Ship them back and they take care of cleaning the items too! Stay tuned for my IG stories to see more about the process.
They’ve recently launched their Unlimited program where you can rent 4 items on rotation and swap them as often as you’d like for $159 a month. It is the smarter, better, more thrilling way to access the fall fashion of your dreams without the typical drawbacks of seasonal transition - shopping trips, closet restocking, unpredictable weather and, worst of all- overspending. I told them I was doing this and they were kind enough to offer my readers an exclusive code for 40% off your first month of membership (cancel anytime btw)!

Here are the four items I was able to rent, I rented with the intentions of my Sonoma trip and an upcoming wedding! Check out my stories to see how these items look on + what sizes I wore. As always, the links are all shoppable- you can shop these items directly from this page!
I absolutely love when I get requests from you- whether its email, comments or direct messages. It makes me feel like I am your "go-to girl" on all things. I love that so many of you can relate to my curvy size 14 figure, so much so that you like seeing clothes on me before you buy them. That's why I've decided to launch a weekly series where I will be buying and trying items from different stores. I will be categorizing them by stores and items. Each week, I'll be showing you how they look on me and giving you my honest feedback. I hope to develop this idea into some sort of hashtag so you can use it too when you buy and try the items I've suggested. As always, I'm open to all of your feedback so feel free to leave a note below on which store or items you'd like to see next!
This week's pick: H&M
H&M is always a favorite but their sizing can be a little crazy. However, I noticed that they have taken strides to improve their sizing. I would say that their sizing is much more accurate, if anything it runs large. I wear a size 14 or 12 in most of these items. Be sure to check out my IG story for a better idea of how they fit!
