Before I share these holiday looks from Catherines, I wanted to share a little note about my history with the brand. Back in high school, my mom worked at Catherines. She loved helping plus size women find clothes. I always begrudged shopping there, because who wants to shop where your mom shops?! Still, I always appreciated their commitment to offering a large size range, even into extended plus (up to 34W). I have fond memories of visiting my mom in the store, and I even had my prom pictures taken outside the dressing rooms! My prom date was a good sport and understood why we had to go there since she was working and wanted to see us together.
I hadn't been back to Catherines since I was 18, until they reached out to see if I wanted to try some of their holiday looks. I ventured into the store, and to my surprise (perspective changes a lot in 16 years) I took 12 items into the dressing room. I shop online so much that I forgot how great it is to go into a store and find so many things that fit! With holiday gathering's in mind, I picked up these pieces.
I love having friends over during the holidays, so the next outfit I selected is great for entertaining at home, or even for a work holiday party:
If you're like me and haven't been to Catherines in a while, go check them out for holiday styles and more. You may be really pleasantly surprised at what you find!
