SWAK Designs: Valentine's Date Night Style

Hi Lovies,

It's hard to believe that January is almost over, it went just as quickly as it came. Now February is knocking on our doors and it's bringing along all things Valentine's Day. Besides the usual chocolates, flowers and jewelry being advertised every where you look, there is also Valentine's Day style. So I was super excited to be collaborating with SWAK Designs and their Valentine's Day Date Look feature. We were asked to put date looks together using some of our favorite swak styles. It was very hard to choose which pieces I wanted to style, there was so many great pieces. But I finally made my choices and couldn't be happier with the looks I put together. Since Valentine's Day is on a Friday this year, I wanted to put together looks that you could wear to work and easily transition into a night out with that special someone. Hope you enjoy them!

SWAK Designs: The Kayla Dress

Hi Lovies!

Last month I had the pleasure of being gifted a few pieces from the contemporary plus size fashion brand SWAK Designs by the lovely Sarah Sapora. I've known about this brand for a while and have been coveting pieces but never purchased anything, so it was wonderful to receive 3 of their most popular pieces on the site. I immediately fell in love with each piece, but one of them was definitely out of my comfort zone and that was the Kayla Dress. It's a simple but lovely tank dress that leaves nothing to the imagination, if you know what I mean lol I normally don't wear anything clingy especially since I carry most of my weight in the middle, tummy area. I tried it on and was a wee bit uncomfortable due to it being form fitting, but I promised myself that I would take more risks this year and step out of my comfort zone as much as possible. So to challenge myself I decided to see how many looks I could get with one dress. Amazingly I came up with quite a few using pieces from my own closet and decided to showcase these three. I braved the cold weather Sunday and for the first time I used my tripod and little remote control to take my own pictures. Despite probably catching pneumonia, I think I did a great job for a first try!

Instagram Weekly Outfit Recap #1

Hey Lovies!

Hope every one's new year is starting off great! I'm going to start trying some new things on the blog this year and one of them is my Instagram Weekly Outfit Recap. Since I can't always get blog post up as often as I like, I keep my readers up on what I'm wearing via instagram with my daily outfit post. So every Monday I'll do a little recap on what I wore for the week. This week apparently I had leopard print on the brain since I wore it 4 times last week! Hey what can I say, I love leopard print! Enjoy!
