Blazer Obsessed

I've noticed lately that I can't seem to put an outfit together without adding a blazer. My closet is riddled with blazers of all types (mostly black ones), but I have to say one of my favorite ones is my Faux Leather Lapel Blazer from Forever 21. I love that this blazer is a cropped style and the 3/4 sleeves, allowing you to show off your arm candy. It also has an 80's Prom Tuxedo feel to it as well which I think is cool. I own it in all Black and wear that one A LOT as well as the Ivory/Black version featured below. It also comes in a pink/black version which I'm sure I'll end up getting eventually lol.

Spring has Sprung

I am so over this weather here in NYC. We are still experiencing cold temps and lots of rain and snow. The groundhog apparently lied to us and we are getting 6 more weeks of winter. But despite the cold weather, I am getting myself hyped for the upcoming spring season. I've really taken to the whole colored denim trend and first tried this out here in my post "Colored Jeans Plunge". I immediately fell in love with the colored jeans I got from Forever 21. I decided to give the sky blue color a whirl.

Faux Fur and my BFF

About two weekends ago, I visited my BFF Jamie up in Fresh Meadows, Queens. Whenever I go over, I have to spend the night because of the distance and the bus schedule. Our sleepovers usually involve lots of liquor, food, music and laughs. We always have an awesome time when we're together. Jamie has two passions, being a DJ and photography, which she excels at both. She was kind enough to take some pics of my outfit that day in her backyard.


Spikes, Studs and Chains

If you follow my blog, you know that I am a girlie girl when it comes to my wardrobe. I don't own any sporty or menswears looking pieces, not even sneakers. My most casual footwear would be Uggs. But I've been drawn to the whole sneaker wedge trend because it's sporty yet still girly enough for me. I've seen a bunch of different ones but none have caught my eye until I saw a pair on the lovely Jeka from the blog La Maison Deux on her instagram page. I inquired about them and wasn't surprised when she informed me that she purchased them from ASOS.com. I immediately went looking for them but unfortunatley they only had them available in the grey color and I wanted black. But I was vigilant and kept checking everyday in hopes that they would pop up again and low and behold they did!!

The Colored Jeans Plunge

I normally don't fall into too many trends because they come and go and I like a more classic look. But there are some trends that are hard to pass up. As most of us know, since last spring colored jeans have become super trendy and I've been keeping my eye out for a pair that I might actually want to take the plunge with. On my daily ritual of browsing my favorite sites every morning, I came across these Colored Stretchy Skinny Jeans from Forever 21. I read the reviews and every one seemed to really like them, as far as how they fit, color consistency, etc. Plus they were only $19.80! So I decided to go for it and purchased the fuchsia and light blue color. 


Sunday Blues

I use to think my favorite color was brown but as I look at my wardrobe recently I have an awful lot of blue. I'm attracted to any shade of blue, especially the color turquoise. If I could dress up everyday I would, but in all reality I hardly get to wear my fancy, dressy clothing. Most of the time I dress pretty casual unless the occasion calls for otherwise. Even for work I can dress pretty relaxed if I want. This is a perfect example of a casual and simple outfit.

All Black Everything

So many of us women, plus size and straight size, love to dress in black It's a classic, elegant and quintessential color. It makes us full figured women look slimmer and it's also a blank canvas for us fashionistas to accessorize and turn it into a masterpiece. Now for me, I enjoy color in my wardrobe, but from time to time I will retreat back to an all back ensemble like the one I wore Saturday.
