I totally get it. We are a culture waiting for tomorrow. Leaving important things till the last minute. A nation of procrastinators. I'll admit, I do my best work under pressure. But as a plus size women, I don't get the same luxury as my skinny sisters when it comes to outfit creation. You know what I am talking about...we have to think/order our plus size costumes (or special occasion outfits, for that matter) at least 2-3 weeks before the event. So much prepping and so little time. So this year, the SWAK team "oranged" a Halloween plus size Lookbook to help inspire you. (Halloween makes me corny..I can't help it) and I split it up further because, as SWAK fans I know you'll find that some of these pieces have been on your wishlist, giving you ample reason to make the purchase.
