A New Day with Gucci

blog4
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 have to admit the collection is definitely tailored to prim and proper, framed with a high end appeal and enhanced with details like never before. I’m actually feeling the vibes of Tar-zhaay at its best. Target who? Which leads me to...

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 season. They should have named it 4 seasons. So, I'm sure you realized I called this cutie a jacket. Yep, that's exactly what it is. Lets just say I was in the mood to jump into my sexy inspector Gadget-...

Luxury Beauty Mark

byron lars
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 my curves. I literally prayed for plus size garments that blend in with Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Dior. Something that will glide along this size 18 curves like a snake slithering its imprint in the desert sands of Egypt....

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 I've dedicated my life to saving others mental, emotional, physical, trendy, and fashionable well being. Every time I've influenced growth in someone by simply being me- a transparent display of what a real plus size woman looks, sounds, and behaves...

Wear Time Well-Jord

_75B8894-2
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 a customer, makes them human & being human is being relatable. Such a connect equals a forever customer in my book. Here's what happened: I ordered the watch via the website through the chat option with a specialist 5 days before...

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 in the 50s and 60s. It's the perfect heirloom because of its modern swing. The entire collection blossomed with preppy adorable brights & clean patterns all watered in sass. Speaking of blossoming & sass, does this skirt love me or...

Sheer Bronze

I am so in love with this look! I have been dying to wear the partially nude look that's trending all over the place. Even if you're not the type of girl who would wear anything that remotely exposes undergarments, you still sit back and think okay, yea its cute when worn classy. I’m just glad I managed to wear the look so well. Now that summer is arriving, we all have two weddings to attend, 4 cocktail parties, and bae is definitely in vacation mode. All I have to say is cheers to this outfit, because it’s perfect for any special occasion. Although shimmer and sheer screams “I'M SPECIAL” this look is far from over dressed and under dressed. It...

Naughty Nauticals

IMG_5846
Wow, it’s been weeks since I've seen you guys! I honestly missed you all. I am completely hyped about coming back after a water retention hiatus. There wasn’t a pair of shoes I owned I could wear. With school and very little sleep, my body was retaining so much water. With that being said, blogging wasn’t an option, unless I became the curvy blogger with super dope outfits and no shoes???? Now that just might be ideal, hmm-something to think about. Since I’m all rested up and looking at normal size legs and feet, I figured my come back had to be bright, fun and breezy! This dress was the perfect call! I mean this look couldn’t compliment Lake Michigan any...
