Romper Room

Hey Lovies,

As a plus size woman, I am constantly trying to push the envelope and break out of my shell when it comes to fashion. Now I know not every trend or style is for everyone but you shouldn't be afraid to try the ones that are. For instance rompers always terrified me and I'm immediately taken back to my child hood when my mom use to put them on me. Not to mention the whole "hungry thighs" issue when my thighs want to eat the romper and I'm forced to keep pulling them down. But even with all that, I decided to take the plunge and give the romper a try. I came across this romper one day while perusing the Wet Seal Plus site. I loved the black and white chevron design and the plunge neckline. You could easily wear it with a cami or bandeau underneath, but I chose to pin mine closed for a more clean look. Don't be afraid to wear this during the colder months with tights, booties and a jacket or blazer.

Rich by Pop-up Plus

Hey Lovies!

It's always great waking up and finding awesomeness in your inbox. This morning I received the fabulous new Fall 2014 look from Pop-up Plus called RICH. It's featuring the gorgeous blogger/model Essie Golden. Now if you know Essie, then you know she puts the "F" in Fierce and this look book is nothing short of that. There's a stunning quilted skirt, hints of faux leather, the essential crop jacket and top, a must have Denim dress, head turning Jumpsuits, blocks of color and a tribute to Keith Haring. Pop-up Plus always has different, on trend and edgy clothing, like these joggers that I wore here. If you're looking to stop traffic and make a statement, then look no further and get RICH! 

"With the way the world is going who knows how much longer we have on this planet? Make the moves you want, wear the clothes you like, and do as you please! As long as you don't hurt anyone (unless you're hurting their feelings by being too fine and shit LOL),  your'e Golden"

Review: IGIGI "Urban Jungle" Collection

Hi Lovies!

I was recently contacted by Igigi about reviewing one of their pieces from their "Urban Jungle" collection. I immediately fell in love with this collection, all the gorgeous animal prints as well as the bold and colorful prints that are all perfect for the Fall. Having already tried Igigi before during FFFWeek (see here and here) I was aware of the great quality and fit of their clothing. But It was still hard for me to decide on which piece I wanted. In the end I chose the "Isla Dress", obviously for the gorgeous leopard print but as well as it being a transitional piece. I could totally see myself wearing this during the colder days with a blazer and boots. I love the feminine draped ruffle along the neckline and the classic A-line design. It's definitely a feminine and flirty dress, which made me want to twirl around in it (which I actually did lol). Igigi's clothing is very generous, so I would definitely check their size chart before ordering anything. I got this dress in a 14/16 and it fit me perfect (I'm normally a 18/20).

ISABEL TOLEDO FOR LANE BRYANT X REFINERY29 EVENT


Hi Lovies,

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant Fall Preview at the 34th Street Flagship Store. I was super excited to actually meet the Toledos, who are such nice and charming people. They mingled with the guests, took pictures and gave interviews. It was a treat to finally see the new pieces in person, which were all gorgeous and stunning. Everything was made with such quality and so lady-like. They had actual models wearing some of the pieces which was great to be able to see how they looked on. The guests were treated to drinks, food and music as well as an awesome photo booth that printed live photos from your instagram feed using the hashtag #LBTOLEDO. It was also hosted by the lovely Chante from Everything Curvy and Chic, who looked lovely dressed in all LB.


Casual Sunday: Denim and Tribal Print

Hi Lovies!

Sundays for me are usually very casual unless I have an event to go to. Otherwise I just like to feel relaxed and wear something that's literally "easy like Sunday morning". Now I am totally dress or skirt girl on a regular basis even throughout the cold months but I have found myself very fond of the harem/jogger trend. At first I was intimidated by them, because like a lot of women, I don't like the way my bum looks in pants lol. Since I've been trying to be more daring with my fashion, I decided to give them a try, and I have to say I'm obsessed now with about 8 pairs in my wardrobe. One of my favs are these Tribal Print ones from Forever 21. I love that they aren't overly baggy at the top and more fitted around the leg as well as having pockets which is always a plus.

Midi in the Park

Hi Lovies!

Back in August Eloquii contacted me about sending me special gift of any item from their website. I was beyond excited about this especially having been to their FFFweek event back in June and got a preview of their upcoming fashions (see post here). The hardest part was picking out which piece I wanted since there were so many great things to choose from. I'm normally not a huge fan of midi skirts because I like to show a little more leg but when they came out with the Studio Midi Skirt in Citron, I have to say I was instantly a fan. My mind was buzzing with different outfit combos that I could create with it! As much as I loved the yellow version, I decided to go with the green color because I knew it could easily be transition it into my Fall wardrobe.
