Painted Love

Hi Lovies!


As many of you know, ASOS.com is one of my favorite online stores. My very first blog post, which I did almost a year ago (can't believe I've been blogging a year already!), was about ASOS. I've been shopping with them since 2010 and my very first purchase was this Painted Tulip Bandeau Dress. I loved this dress but the funny thing is I've only worn it one other time! That's what happens when you have too many clothes, you continue to buy more and forget about what you already have. It's a vicious cycle, but I digress and decided to pull this oldie but goody out and strut my stuff in it! I have to say this dress is definitely a show stopper, got a lot of lookers and women complimenting me on how pretty it is. I don't blame them, this dress is totally awesome!


Blossoming Beauty

Hi Lovies!

The summer is coming to an end so quickly so I'm trying to wear as many of my dresses as possible. This gem of a dress I had to have the minute I saw it on eShakti.com. I totally fell in love with the floral print and how happy it made me feel. I decided to wear this dress to an after work happy hour cruise with my Beau and it was a hit! I'm a huge fan of this website and own 3 other things from them which I love just as equally. The best part about them is that you can customize the clothing to your exact measurements for a better fit! This dress as is, comes strapless and the length is below the knees but I decided to add tie-ups at the shoulder and made the length above the knee for a more playful look. I completed the outfit with turquoise  colored accessories which went so well with the colors on the dress.


Bandeau To Make Her Dance!

Hi Lovies!

Well I'm finally back on the my blogging ish! It can be very hard to blog when your photographer has her own buddy career (how dare she! lol). But I'm back, and back with a vengeance! When I first saw this bandeau, I was immediately drawn to it because it was another one of my favorite prints...CAMOUFLAGE! Since I've been trying to push the envelope and step out of my comfort zone, I decided to purchase it with an outfit in mind. Now we all know that denim vest are super trendy and popular this summer, so I paired it this lace back vest from Forever 21 with the bandeau to give me more of a comfortable feel and not be so overly exposed. Also to "camouflage" some of my love handles I wore a skater skirt with a bit of a high waist. I felt the outfit was pulled together, cute and showed just enough skin without feeling like a Hoochie Mama..lol! I also wore my wedge sneakers for a more urban, street look which completed the outfit.

#HonorMyCurves Feature

Hi Lovies!

I'm so excited to I can barely type this post but yours truly has been featured in the July/August issue of Skorch Magazine! I was part of the #honormycurves column written by the wonderful Honor Curves. I was ecstatic when she reached out to me and asked if I would like to be featured in the magazine. If you've never heard of Honor Curves and her #honormycurves movment, its an instagram page where she encourages self love and acceptance of your body, no matter the size, shape or color. #honormycurves has gotten so big, Skorch Magazine asked her to join their team with a monthly column featuring 3-4 girls, asking them what honoring their curves means to them. I'm super grateful to Honor Curves for choosing me as one of the girls to be featured this month!
