La Pecosa Preciosa Turns 3: Eloquii Giveaway!

Hey Lovies!

It's so hard to believe that my blog is 3 years old! So much has happened to me and my blog within those years. I've connected with great companies and brands, met amazing people, most of who I now consider my good friends and I have made strides within the plus size community. Not to mention my wonderful readers and supporters of the blog, which without you guys, this couldn't be possible. The first year I didn't celebrate since I was still a fledgling and the second year I decided against celebrating because I had recently loss my Mom. But this year, I figured 3rd times a charm, so I wanted to do something and celebrate big! I reached out to a few of my favorite brands and I will be doing 5 days of giveaways as a thank you for all the love and support you have given me throughout these 3 years!

Zebra Stripes

Hi Lovies!

You ever have one of those days that the outfit you chose just puts you in the best mood? It actually puts a pep in your step and the fact that you're going to work doesn't bother you as much anymore? Well some clothes can do that, it could be a shirt, or a special dress and even an awesome pair of shoes that can change your whole attitude for the day. Well that's how I totally felt with this outfit. It was a cheerful yet playful ensemble starting with my amazing chartreuse midi from Eloquii. As I said in one of my other post (here) Chartreuse is one of my fav colors. Then along with my contrasting zebra stripe top, that I scored the Modamix sample sale. It literally was a match made in heaven.

Sexy in Violet

Hi Lovies!

You gotta love a dress that is simple but versatile, that can take you from day to night with a quick change of your accessories. I'm always on the hunt for clothes like that because I enjoy getting my moneys worth wherever possible.  This Cocoon Crepe dress from Old Navy was one of those items. I loved the violet color and silhouette as well as being able to dress it up or down. Normally I don't wear this type of dress because they can tend to make you look bigger but since it was tapered towards the bottom it still gave me some shape. I felt super sexy in it and couldn't have been more comfortable. Not to mention the v-neckline which is very flattering. This is a great piece to add to my Fall wardrobe.

Military Chic

Hi Lovies!

I love days when I can just get up and throw something on that is easy breezy, when I don't have to worry about shape wear or hemlines. One of my favorite things to throw on are a comfortable pair of cargo/jogger pants. They are so effortless and can be styled in so many ways, just like these Camo Printed ones from Lane Bryant. I'm a sucker for anything camouflage print, so getting these was a must. I loved the tapered leg and zipper detail on the side as well as the large cargo pockets. They're right on trend with the whole military chic look and are a great staple for Fall.

Tribal Girl

Hi Lovies!

I love to see the transition that my closet has taken over the last few years. As I've gotten older, I have grown to love all things color. I am always looking for something colorful to add to my wardrobe, it just makes me smile to see a plethora of color in my closet. When Eloquii came out with this amazing Tribal Print Midi Skirt, I knew it was definitely coming home to mama. I loved the design and colors of this skirt, it was something different that I didn't already own. As you know I am always looking for something that can be worn both for work and weekend, and this totally fit the bill. It's the perfect length and fit super comfy due to the soft elastic waist. It is definitely a statement piece and I can't wait to see what other ways I can style this amazing skirt.

Stripes and Denim

Hi Lovies!

Now that summer is soon coming to a close (tears!), I am unfortunately getting my mind set for the Fall season. By doing that, I start going through my Summer clothes and seeing what I can transition over to Fall. I'm all about clothes that can be carried over from season to season and denim is ones of those things. Whether it be a dress, skirt or jeans, denim is a year round staple in my closet. This skirt from Eshakti is a perfect example, it's great right now for the remaining summer days but can easily be worn in the fall with tights and knee high boots. I just love the deep indigo wash on this skirt and the soft pleating, which gives it such a feminine look. Eshakti makes amazing skirts, I have a few in my wardrobe (see here and here) and you gotta love a skirt that comes with pockets!

butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon Review & Giveaway

Hi Lovies!

I have never been huge on make-up, my regime consisted of lipstick and blush. The reason being, my knowledge of  how to use it was limited. But thanks to my blogger boo Darlene, she has totally gotten me into doing more with my make-up. She's been showing me a few techniques with application and I have also taken to YouTube for tutorials and such. I find the art of make-up totally fascinating and I give it to you ladies who can beat your face into submission. So when butter LONDON reach out to me asking if I'd like to try their brand new innovation products, I figured this would be a good time to delve into a make-up review. Now the only thing I knew of butter LONDON was their nail lacquers, which are amazing. So I knew what ever cosmetics they were going to send me was going to be great. I was even more excited when I received the box and it was filled with a plethora of their new Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon. They sent me the whole collection which consist of 7 amazing colors, in pinks, reds and neutrals. I couldn't wait to try them out!


Casually Tropical

Hey Lovies!

By now you probably seen these fabulous Palm Printed Soft Pants from Harper + Liv on a few bloggers. My girls Jeniese, Darlene and Shainna look awesome in them. I spoke about this new brand in one of my previous post here and how much I'm really enjoy their clothing. These pants were nothing short of amazing and so on trend with the beautiful print and color. They are super comfy and the quality is excellent as well as being cool enough to wear on the extremely hot days. I love the inset rounded hem as well as the easy pull on style. These pants don't have much give so keep that in mind when deciding on the size.
