Winter Pastels

resize
  Hey Girl, hey! So, I have such a love for cold colors in the late Fall and Winter seasons. When beige, creams, and off whites accompany an outfit with light hues of pastels, as a pop of color, it gives me chills. It puts me in the mind frame of mint refreshers. Let’s just say, if WinterFresh had an outfit, this would so be it! What you think? Well other than looking like minty breath, this look was truly a no brainer. Eloquii did me well when they dropped this high-waist fringe skirt in my view. This is nothing but a vintage piece, just made in modern times. Which makes this skirt as timeless as the first rendition of its...

Boldly Chic by Fe Noel

STR_8774
  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 by simply putting in your measurements.  Now let's dive into the deets of this classic. The weight of this piece is solid, the linen is thick, but not hot and Fe Noel cut no corners when it came to the...

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...
