Skater Girl

Hi Lovies!!

It seems that I've fallen into yet another obsession and that's skater skirts or dresses, I can't get enough of them! They happen to be super trendy at the moment, of any style and material, especially in leather (faux or real). So when I saw this Emerald Skater Skirt from ASOS Curve on Gwynnie Bee, I had to try it. I spoke about Gwynnie Bee on my last post, see here. I had been eyeing it on ASOS for a while but of course I waited too long and it sold out. You can imagine my excitement when I saw that Gwynnie Bee had it available. I have to say this is one of the best skater skirts I've worn, it fits like a dream, it's well made and the color is amazing, plus it comes with the belt. I was so pleased with the skirt that I immediately went to the ASOS website and ordered the black version which is on sale for $24, as well as the red and navy versions.


Ombre and Stripes

Hi Lovies!

I'm really having a hard time letting go of summer, and refuse to get into fall mode. So this weekend, despite the cooler temperatures, I still dressed with summer in mind. I purchased this Ombre hi/low skirt from Forever 21 back in July and have worn it about 3 times, which is a lot for me. I love this skirt and always get compliments when I wear it. I adore the turquoise/aqua color as well as the beige color it transitions into. I wasn't a fan of the whole ombre trend this summer but this skirt definitely made me a fan. 

Dots and Stripes

Hi Lovies!

Since summer is coming to a close, I feel very pressured to wear as many of my summer dresses as I can before it gets too cold. I was lucky enough to grab this dress from Modcloth during their huge yearly sale where they are practically giving stuff away. Of course I waited to long to buy stuff and almost all the awesome pieces were sold out in my size (I'll be better prepared next year! lol). But I was very happy to have gotten this very adorable and dainty dress from them. You get the best of both worlds with this piece because it has polka dots and stripes. I'm also totally in love with the color combination, green, black and a peachy color look so great together. To see Modcloth's awesome plus size line, click here.

Signature by Ashley Stewart Career Collection

Hi Lovies!

Back in June when I attended the Ashley Stewart blogger breakfast during FFFWeek (see here), I got to see a preview of some pieces from their A/W 2013 collection. Everything they showed was awesome and on trend for the fall season. AS has totally revamped their fashion and are reconnecting with their target market as well as their growth with social media and online presence. The folks over at Ashley Stewart contacted me and asked if I'd like to participate in their new campaign which consist of a new career collection called "Signature by Ashley Stewart". They asked that I choose 2 items from their Signature collection, mix and match the pieces with accessories, heels, and even treasured items from my own closet to create a unique professional "Desk to Dinner" ensemble that reflects my own personal style. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and was very flattered to have been asked to participate in their campaign.



My Fall Lust List

Hi Lovies!

Now that my favorite season comes to an end (tear!), I am forced to start looking for new Fall clothing. Of course I always hit up my "go to"online stores to see what goodies they have. As I peruse the websites, I noticed that a lot of my favorite trends are being carried over to the Fall season, such as faux leather, stripes, polka dots, military chic, peplum, and animal print to name a few. Even though I love summer, I'm actually looking forward to the upcoming Fall season and with all the amazing things coming, how could I not?! Here are a new things that I've added to my Fall "lust list".
