La Pecosa Preciosa

OOTD: Ferociously Furry

Yesterday searching through my Fall clothing, I came across my favorite Cropped Fur Trim Cardigan from Torrid. I haven't worn it in forever, so I decided to put together an outfit just so I can wear it! This cardigan is adorable, if I could wear it with all my outfits, I would lol. It has a a single button, 3/4 sleeves and made of the softest material. The fur collar gives any outfit a touch of posh.

Look what I found!

When I was packing my bag for my usual weekend with my Beau, I decided to go digging in some of my fall clothing. What's good about digging is you come across stuff you forgot you had. Like this Kimono Blouse and skinny jeans from Fashion to Figure that I bought last year. I love the colors, the blue, red and black makes the this top pop and the plunge line gives a more sexy appeal to it. The smocking in the middle enhances your waist and shows off more of your curves as well. The jeans are also a great fit and they hold up well after a few wears.

OOTD: Courageously Camouflage

I was very excited when I scored this Camouflage Blazer and Felicia Cognac Fur Trim Wedge Boots both from Torrid off of eBay. I normally don't fall into the whole bidding war thing because you could get carried away and spend way too much money on something. But I wasn't going to lose out on these two items and ended up getting them both for pretty good prices.

Be an inspiration

Before I decided to start a plus size blog, I spent hours reading them. It was so much fun reading all the other fantastic blogs and getting to know the women behind them. I swooned over their photos, loved each individuals personal style and what an inspiration they were to the plus size community. 

Since then, I have been inspired by many of my fellow bloggers to start my own blog. And I have to say it has been nothing but pure enjoyment. Despite my short time as a plus size blogger, I have already obtain a bit of a fan base and could only hope it keeps growing. It's a very rewarding feeling when someone tells you that they were inspired by one of your outfits or took your advice on a store that I reviewed and was very pleased with their purchase. I get inspired everyday by other plus size/curvy bloggers and wanted to feature  three of my  favorite ones.

OOTN: Ain't nothing but a Houndstooth!

Friday was my friend Vanessa's birthday and she was having it at one of my favorite happy hour restaurants Pazza Notte. They have 2 for 1 martinis ALL day! It was unseasonably cold in NYC on Friday so I actually had to wear a coat. I was very excited because my outfit for the night consisted of all new pieces! I pulled out my Belted Wool Cape from Walmart, my Houndstooth Blazer from Ashley Stewart along with my Pleated Faux Leather Skirt from Forever 21.

Do you believe in fate?

I saw this blouse a while back at Forever 21 and I really liked it. I loved the delicate pearl color and the pretty sequins trim on the V-neckline. As usual I picked up way too many pieces of clothing and realized I needed to put some stuff back. Unfortunately this blouse was one of the items I put back on the racks. I sadly said goodbye to the blouse and made my way to the checkout. About 3 weeks I made my weekly visit to Forever 21 and I happened to come across the blouse again, and in the sale section no less! I jumped for joy ( yes, I literally jumped for joy lol), couldn't believe that it was there. It was obviously fate, and it was meant for me to have this blouse. I quickly found my size and happily made my way to the checkout (with like 4 other things from the sale section!)

OOTD: Charismatic Cheetah

As you probably know by now, I'm crazy over anything animal print. So when I saw this Dress in Old Navy, I snatched it up quick! This is a great dress with all my fav features, 3/4 sleeves that can be rolled up to be made shorter, above knee length, split neckline and it has pockets. Not to mention the price was great too.

H&M, why would you do this to me???

Monday after work I took a walk to 34th street and decided to go into H&M to check out their plus size line. I read a few reviews about the line off of some of the other plus size blogs and it didn't get very good reviews. This was very disappointing because I love so many things from H&M's straight line.I was hoping they did the same for the plus line, but unfortunately the reviews were true. I pretty much hated everything there! The clothes looked like it was designed for someone shaped like a square. There were no shaping, contouring, or structure to the clothes what so ever, and the styles were very old lady looking. They obviously didn't follow any current trends to create their pieces.

So after rummaging through the horribly displayed clothes, I came across this blush color blazer in the sale section. I've been looking for a blush blazer for a while and for $20, I couldn't say no! To add insult to injury, H&M also doesn't know how to size their clothing. All they had left of this blazer was size 24, so I decided to try it on and to my surprise it fit me perfectly. That's 3 sizes bigger than my normal size!

OOTD: Lace and Leather

I was finally meeting up with my good friend Vanessa to attend a comedy show in my neighborhood. I wanted to wear something dressy but casual so I decided to go with a color block look. I bought this Contrast Lace Yoke Shirt from Forever 21 a while ago and didn't know what I wanted to wear it with. This gave me the opportunity to finally wear my Plum Faux Leather Pants also from Forever 21.

It's all about the boobs!

This past Saturday was a Breast Cancer Fundraiser in my Beau's Mother's honor. I unfortunately never got to know her because she past away a week before me and my boyfriend met. I've been with Eric for almost 3yrs and from the many stories I've heard from my Beau, his siblings and family, she was an amazing woman. It's sad that I didn't get to know but she left behind her wonderful Son who I have been blessed to have in my life.
