Midday Must Have: Pop Up Plus Spring Lookbook 2014

It’s been one of the coldest winters on record! In the Big Apple, we’ve seen 14 snowstorms and the most snowfall ever recorded in January and February since 1868..Yet on one of these cold winter nights, magic happened and #POPSPRING burst forth!
Pop up plus is an Indie, International & Contemporary Designer MOBILE  shop for the curvy trendsetters .Which was founded in 2010, by the granddaughter of a tailor, who understood the need for a fresh take on clothing and  is defiantly shown within their 2014 spring lookbook !!!
It implements everything that is Vibrant, Energetic, Sensual and Passionate about these months ahead. The Chrissy Mint Jacket and  the fashion Joggers are an ideal must have to start off your spring wear!!!! But my absolute favourties are the dotted jumpsuit and the orange rapture set
All of the items shown above are under $70 US and come in sizes 1x- 3x and can be found on their website http://popupplusonline.com/
Which of these pieces do you love the most ?
Food for thought

Can you believe it? Spring has finally arrived! We’re so excited to run outside (with sunnies and sunscreen, of course) to greet the warm weather with open arms and pops of color. Naturally, we’re celebrating with a new collection that we like to call Hello Sunshine!

For a limited time only, take 25% off sitewide with free shipping using code SPRING25. Pretty great, right?
