Best Fitting Pant Ever

Hi Lovies,

Last month my favorite brand Eloquii asked me to be a part of a campaign they were doing to showcase their signature #1 best selling Kady Pant. Now you guys already know how near and dear these pants are to me. I own several pairs and I wear them all the time, they are my go to pant for work. I was even a part of a video they did over a year ago talking about why I love the Kady Pant so much. This time around, they wanted to showcase a few customers and bloggers of different body shapes and sizes in the pant. So that their customers could see how versatile and size inclusive these pants are. With sizes from 14-28, as well as coming in short, regular, tall and their new Viola fit, they literally are the best fitting pant ever.

Valentine's Day Fashion Finds For Everyone

Hi Lovies

It's hard to believe that the first month of 2017 is almost over and we descend into the month of love. For some Valentine's Day is a big deal, whether you celebrate with a significant other, share a night with your best girls, or make it a family affair. This also might means that you enjoy getting dressed for the occasion as well. Here are some Valentine's Day fashion ideas for just about everyone in your family.

Not Just For The Holidays

Hi Lovies,

I don't know about you but just because the holidays are over doesn't mean that I won't wear clothes that are "holidaesque". This holiday season went by in such a flash and there were just some things I never got around to wearing. The folks at Dia & Co. sent me a holiday box as a gift with some really great pieces, some of which never made it's debut. Dia &Co. is an online personal styling service for plus size women (sizes 14-32). You get a curated box of clothing put together by one of their amazing stylist. I totally love this service, first off because it makes me feel special, like if I was a celebrity and had my own stylist. Secondly and my favorite thing, is that there is no commitment of a monthly fee, you can request a box whenever you need or want one. Just pay the $20 styling fee which in turn gets credited back to you if you purchase anything from your box. Can't beat that with a baseball bat! Check out some of the other perks!
  • A dedicated personal stylist
  • Convenient home try-on
  • Free shipping both ways
  • $20 credit toward what you keep
  • Free and unlimited size exchanges
  • 20% off your purchase when you buy everything

Have You Met Allie?

Hi Lovies,

Lane Bryant has a new girl in town and her name is Allie. It's their new universal fit pant which means that women of any size or body shape will look good in these pants. With their fit revolution technology and advanced waistband construction making these one of the most comfiest pants. They are made of a stretchy material that hugs the body from waist to knee and flares out at the hem. Offering sizes from 16-28 in short, regular and tall is such a great thing that LB decided to do, making this pant available to almost everyone. While a Boot Cut is not my normal style of pants, I prefer a more skinny fit, I could easily see myself wearing these for work, dressed up or down, there's a lot you can do with this pant.

Plus Size Remix: My Small Wardrobe

Hi Lovies,

Welcome back to another edition of the Plus Size Remix, the first for 2017. As I stated in my round up post, I will be definitely trying to get one of these out every month. If this is your first time to the blog, PSR is a monthly feature where I take a look that inspires me and remix it into a plus size version. If you missed any of my previous PSR, head over my Pinterest board to catch up. This month's inspiration came from someone that I have been following for a while and totally admire, Carelia of My Small Wardrobe. I just adore her style, she loves mixing vintage garments with contemporary and classic pieces. Her looks are eccentric, funky and fun, plus I love what she stands for. Her goal is to encourage women regardless of size, age or body type to #DressFun. Not to mention she's a fellow Latina and is representing the fabulous 40 and over club. Yassss!

Weekend Wear: Polka Dots and Denim

Hi Lovies,

For me weekends are for cool and comfy looks that you don't have to put a lot of thought into. I know I definitely don't want to waste my day putting together an outfit when I could be enjoying brunch with my Beau. Now that the temps have dropped, my go to are jeans, they are easy to wear and provide warmth during the winter months. Even better when you can find a pair that have detailing of some kind to give them some pizazz. These Distressed Pearl Jeans from Roaman's are super cute and different with actual faux pearl detailing on the upper part of the jean. While the light wash and distressed design adds some edginess to them. Comfortable enough to wear to run errands and stylish enough to wear for brunch with your best girls, you can't beat that!

Snow Fall

Hi Lovies,

For 2017 I have set a few goals for the blog that I want to reach. I love to do this so that I am constantly pushing myself to do better and have something to focus on. Now while I take my blog very seriously and consider it a second job, I don't want it to become something that I hate to do. That's why it's important to have those days where you just have fun with the blog. This past weekend we had like our first real snow fall and I took the opportunity to get outside with my boyfriend and take some fun photos. Despite it being frigid outside and people thought we were crazy, it a lot of fun.

The Party Goes On

Hi Lovies,

It's so crazy how fast the holidays come and go, I swear it was only yesterday we were celebrating Thanksgiving. Now the holiday blues start to set in, decorations start to come down and you miss all the fun that come with the holidays. Like spending time with family, good food, great parties and getting dressed up. For me getting dressed up for the holidays is my favorite part, aside from getting gifts of course lol! I know there are a few of you out there that didn't get a chance to wear that killer outfit. Well for me, the party doesn't stop just because the fun of holiday season is over. Keep the fun going and wear that outfit somewhere else, maybe date night with your boo, brunch with your girls, or for a night out on the town. There's never not a reason to get dressed up, in my book!
