Treats for all us plus-size tricks

Queen of Darkness, $47
Betty Boop, $57.99
 (can also be used as a base dress for Jessica Rabbit, Prom Queens, etc.)

Every Halloween I think of the hilarious Girls' Costume Warehouse fake commercial that pokes fun at the fact that all all costumes these days are sexy fill-in-the-blank! (Sexy fireman, sexy cop, sexy mustard...)

Sure we can create our own costumes based off our favorite dresses or a kimono, but as cheesy as it is, sometimes we just want to take part in the fun of going to your local halloween superstore and just getting a costume in a bag off the rack. Sadly, most of these costumes are made for anorexic preteens or if they are made for plus size they may not be that great for our body types. Also, some companies like Playboy make "plus" costumes but they only fit a 14/16.

Not to worry, FoxyRoxy is bringing you a round up of the coolest costumes that will fit, flatter and make you stand out!  So we are taking this challenge to the web and will give you our fave picks that aren't too skimpy, too frumpy or with those poufy sleeves that make thick arms look thicker.

"Knockout" Boxer, $56.99

"Ship Shape" Sailor, $64.99

From :

Cleopatra, $62.95

Twister, $24.95

Dark Alice, $49.95

Buccaneer Beauty, $37

Lady Maverick, $31.95
Rebel School Girl, $34.95

Hot Damn! Monif C's Holiday Line

I know it seems a little early to be thinking of holiday glitz and glam, but for it's never too early to drool over it.  You may be thinking, "When do I need a dress this formal?" or "I already own enough dresses." Nonsense!!
When you find something luxurious and sexy, get it while you can because you may never find something like it again. Admittedly, I have a problem. I am a dress-a-holic. I own more than I know what to do with but that never seems to stop me. If I find one that looks incredible, I get it and sometime even throw a black tie party for New Years in order to revel in that glamour. Holiday dressing with rich fabrics, long lengths, and sequins will make you feel undeniably special and that, my foxy ladies, is priceless.

 Monif C unveiled their Sex and The City inspired holiday cocktail dresses today and it made me swoon enough to maybe pre-order something. I also loved the way Monif C displays the collection. This model in the sequin dress signifies everything I am trying to accomplish with Foxy Roxy: a strong, sexy, diva, glamazon attitude no matter what the scale says.  Named after Samantha Jones, it embodies her signature "F**k you, I'm Fabulous!" persona.

"Samantha" sequin dress, $268
"Miranda", $208
The asymmetrical-hem and V-neck of the "Miranda" gown will show a peek of sexy leg while still being bra-friendly. I love the shape of this gown so much that I think I have to get it and maybe find ways to dress it down with a wide belt and boots.

The "Carrie" dress is awesome and reminds me of her famous "corsage" dress from the first movie poster. Sadly, I rarely look good in ruffles but I am going to go try it on. The one-strap on the side, again, means bra-friendly and a tulip skirt will cover any damage those holiday meals did to your waistline.

Last but not least is the "Charlotte" dress. It is exactly what you'd want from Charlotte York. Classic and sophisticated, but when you fill it out with your sexy curves, it turns into pin-up-meets-Park Avenue. A wonderful combo for corporate holiday parties or grown-up dates at Lincoln Center with your man.
"Charlotte", $238
"Carrie", $228
 Thank you Monif C for bringing us fashion-crazed curvy chicks some silver-screen Sex and The City style! What a luscious line!! Bravo!

Our New Obsession: SLINK Magazine

Just as I was working on my upcoming piece on luxury fall fashion, I stumbled across a new magazine that has all the couture and lust-worthy brands as Vogue but is geared towards US!! What a surprise! This is incredible.

Finally an online mag that has the same mission as my blog. Haute Couture for the 12+ set.
I may spend all nigh pouting over their site, browsing reviews of the couture runway shows and better yet ogle the sleek, chic high fashion photo spreads where I know everything will fit.
