While in Las Vegas last month, I had a chance to meet one of my favorite contacts in the plus size retail world - Sarah Sapora, Director of Marketing & Business Development for Sealed with a Kiss Designs. Sarah and I have been corresponding over email for a little over a year, and I was thrilled to meet her in person. Sarah's passion for the Sealed with a Kiss customer & the company's mission to provide affordable, well cut, on-trend clothes is absolutely infectious!
Sarah wore this gorgeous sea-blue tank to lunch; she told me all about how important it was to her that the shoulders were cut wide enough to allow a woman to wear a full bra underneath. So cute!
We shared a plate of pot stickers and exchanged stories from both our personal & professional lives (seriously, she's the kind of woman you find yourself spilling everything to!) before Sarah slipped me a hot-off-the-press booklet detailing the Sealed with a Kiss spring line.
I ooohed and ahhed over it as she walked me through each piece - the inspiration, the attention to detail in cutting the fabric to perfectly fit a plus size woman, the color choices. And then she told me that I couldn't share what I'd seen with anyone. For the time being. Luckily, the time being is over. Here are a few of my favorites from the upcoming spring collection:

I plan to snap up a few pieces from each collection:
Aquarius - Gloria Dress
Garden Party - Amber Shrug, Lily Cardigan, Fresia Eyelet Skirt, Reah One-shoulder Top
Santorini - Naxos Top, Anastasia Maxi Dress
Basics - Boyfriend Tee, Waterfall Cardigan
Sarah shared another little secret with me about upcoming plans that Sealed with a Kiss has...my lips are sealed but I'm incredibly excited to see how a certain very special line turns out!
