Getting my Groove Back

Hi Lovies,

There are times in my blogging life where I can hit a wall and kinda lose my groove. It's hard sometimes to keep the creative juices flowing and continue to produce fresh content. A lot of things can factor into that, like your personal life, or stress from work. I also promised myself that I wouldn't let blogging become a chore or a job. I want to always look my blog as a source of happiness and make it something that I'm proud of. That's why it's ok to take a step back, give yourself a break and reboot. This is a great way to get a better perspective of what you're doing and open your eyes to the bigger picture. Not only that but it'll give your mind a chance to chill so that when you are ready, the creativeness will be in abundance.

In The Trenches

Hi Lovies,

So my obsession with Eloquii has grown to a whole new high as of late. I've found myself purchasing something from them almost every week. But to my defense they have been slaying the fashion game for this spring season and it's almost a crime not buy something. They also just recently dropped their swimsuit collection and all I can say is OMG! You definitely need to check them out ASAP. Now I am all about dresses that are different and unconventional. So when I feasted my eyes on the Off The Shoulder Trench Dress, there was no doubt in my mind that I had to have it. This dress sold out so quickly but thank goodness it just came back in stock! They took a classic and iconic piece of outerwear and made it into a masterpiece of a dress. The off the shoulder design adds a flirty touch while the trench aspect keeps it looking polished and sophisticated. The A-Line silhouette and self tie belt makes it super flattering. Who needs a power suit when you can have the ultimate power dress, am I right??

Birds of Paradise

Hi Lovies,

Happy Monday all! Spring has finally made it's way over to NYC and we have been having the best weather. Easter Sunday was in the 80's! I don't know about you but this type of weather puts me in the best mood. Especially when it comes to getting dressed, all I want to wear are my fun pieces of clothing. In one of my previous post, I mentioned how the fruit trend has become very popular this season. Well besides fruits, animals and birds have been hitting the scene as well. I just love the whimsical and lively feel of this trend. and one brand that gets this is Eloquii. When I first saw this skirt on their Instagram Live during the opening party of their DC pop-up shop, I nearly died. It has stripes and colorful parrots on it, nuff said!  This playful print just made me so happy not to mention catching the eye of quite of few people. Eloquii's signature studio midi never disappoints and this skirt is definitely Bae right now.

Who What Wear

Hi Lovies,

I know I am totally late to the party with the Who What Wear Collection for Target. Honestly I don't know what took me so long to actually buy something. I've loved everything they've had since they first launched last year with their spring collection. Since then they have been adding to the collection with each season and I've been loving it. Not only has the pieces been on trend, stylish and fashion forward but they made this collection size inclusive. The collection is available in plus with sizes ranging from 14W-26W which in my book is pretty amazing. Their newest stuff definitely caught my eye and I ended up buying quite a few pieces. I just really loved the Retro-Modern vibe of the collection. The simple colors, patterns and silhouette of the pieces are such a refreshing and effortless look for the spring.

Plus Size Remix: Crystalin Marie

Hi Lovies,

It's that time of the month again, I am back with another Plus Size Remix! I am so sorry that I didn't get one out for March, but it was a bit crazy last 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. Make sure to catch last month's inspiration featuring Hallie of Among Other Things. This months inspiration came from Crystalin Marie of the blog Crystalin Marie. I totally love her blog, her style is very simple and classic with a touch of flare. I love how she adds pops of color or print to jazz up an easy look. She makes getting dressed look super easy all while remaining stylish. I love how she mentions in her bio that her style is always evolving and she hopes her daily posts not only inspire us to feel confident and stylish everyday, but encourages us to invest in classic pieces, use what you already have in your closet, and to make smart buying decisions. That is awesome!

Back in the Day

Hi Lovies,

Lately I've been obsessed with wearing sneakers with dresses and skirts. It actually takes me back to the 90's when dressing like a man was a trend. Growing up in Spanish Harlem, I've seen trends and fads come and go, but being able to dress like one of the guys was my favorites. Baggy jeans, rugby shirts and Timberland boots was my everyday attire. But like most things, this trend faded into the background, I got older and my style evolved. Hard to believe the woman you see today use to be into that type of style. That's why I love when old styles and trends make their way around again, it gives me back a little bit of my past while I take it make it work with my current style. One of my favorite sneakers to wear back in the 90's were a classic pair of Stan Smith Adidas. It was something about the simplicity to them and how they were still able to make a statement. Not to mention they went with literally everything. Now you can find them in damn near every color combination, like my Metallic Pink ones (see here) and of course the Classic White ones with Gold Accents that I'm wearing here.
