Boldly Chic by Fe Noel

  I ran across Fe Noel on Instagram and immediately fell in love with her garments! If you don't know FeNoel head to her website and get acquainted, she's so bomb! If you know me you know that I love supporting indie designers by adding them to my closet (she literally has something for everybody and then some). I love that Fe Noel will custom make your desired size although sizes range from xs to xl. There is an option for custom...

A New Day with Gucci

I was devastated when I read Merona and Mossimo would no longer be a brand name for Target. I just knew the Victoria Beckham collection was the last collection I’d purchase. After being introduced to Target's new designers, I’m glad to say my devastation was yesterday’s news and cheers to “A New Day”. Target has done a great job up-ing the fashion racks with their new designer brand, A New Day. The collection launched August 27th and I’m far from disappointed. I...

Who Runs

Fall is finally here and I'm beyond ecstatic about all of the amazing styles coming out. Yes, we are fresh into fall, but still getting summer vibes. Today in Chicago, it was 90 degrees, which is insane! The weather is definitely pms-ing. Like I tell anyone, transitional pieces will help balance some of the weather emoing. This utility jacket from ASOS is the perfect transitional piece. The color screams fall and the weight of it says, have me in any...

Luxury Beauty Mark

They say plus has no luxury and I say, darling meet my friend Byron Lars, the man who get the plus size silhouette (smh). There's an extreme amount of passion in his craftsmanship, allow me to explain. Just sit back cross your legs and look pretty while listening to me brag on Byron Lars. As I continue to grow so luscious in my plus size frame, I've dream-pt of a designer who could actually keep up with the direction of...

Bud Billiken Style

blog
Exactly two weeks ago today, August 12th I made history along with Chance the Rapper as the first plus size blogger in the worlds largest African American parade, The Bud Billiken parade. The parade focuses on the development of CPS for inner city children by giving back to the African American community. This years parade theme paid homage to Hometown Heroes. Now before entering I wasn't familiar with the theme, but how befitting I thought. For the past 11 years...

So about this Jord watch. Jord, you and I have history. Last year I was looking for a gift, something masculine,  unique, and unforgettable for a special some. Suddenly, I came across Jord watches-and it was wood! I tell you, I was all chimed in. This was exactly what I had in mind. Before I go into his (special someone) reaction I have to acknowledge the amazing customer service. I feel a company that goes out its way to please...

Victoria Beckham -Cape Daisy

carmen1
You want classic? Well I think you've found it. Victoria Beckham was definitely in for creating timeless, soft, & eye catching pieces. I believe this was by far my fave! Talk about bringing the outdoors in, in this case lets say putting the outside on. Victoria Beckham really captured the art of femininity through nature, by playing with Earth's most beautiful asset, flowers. I dare to say you'd find these pieces in the closets of  Twiggy & Audrey Hepburn back...
