La Pecosa Preciosa

GOODBYE 2012...HELLO 2013

Even though my blog is still in its newborn stage, launched August 2012, I have to say it has been nothing but fun. From the wonderful women who inspired me to start my blog, the new and awesome people I've met so far, and to hopefully inspire other women along the way. Thank you to all my followers, friends and family that have shown me so much love and support on my journey into the world of plus size blogging. As 2012 comes to a close, I look forward to what the new year has in store for me and La Pecosa Preciosa.

50 Shades of Grey

When I first started shopping for trendier plus size fashion, the first store I started shopping at was Torrid. I loved their edgy, risque fashion as well as their great shoes and boots. They also cater to us wide foot and calf women and go from sizes 7-12. So with that being said, over the last 4 yrs I have bought quite a few things from them. Including this Grey Wrap Tube Dress.

Sassy Soldier Girl

When I finally went through my clothes and pulled out the winter gear, I came across this dress. I bought this like 2 yrs ago from Torrid and I loved it so much! Love the strapless design and the Army uniform look to it with the studded trim across the top. It also has pockets which is always a plus for me as well as being able to be worn for several seasons. In the summer by itself with a cute pair of sandals or the way I'm wearing it here for the winter.

Review: Firmoo Glasses

Around the beginning of the month, I received an email from an online glasses store, Firmoo to try out a pair of their glasses and review them. This was the first time I have ever been approached by a glasses company and figured, "sure, why not?" I filled out their application form and waited about a week for my glasses to arrive. Unfortunately the pair I got are currently sold out but here's a similar pair (see here).

Coo-coo Over Animal Print

If you know me, I'm a sucker for anything animal print. There isn't an article of clothing, shoes, or accessories that I can pass up if it's animal print, specifically leopard or cheetah print. I just love the way it looks with other color combos or if I'm using it to accent an outfit. You can't go wrong with it. Went through some of my pictures from my blog posts and put together a bunch of my animal print ensembles

Draping and Animal Print

For the past 3 yrs my Beau's sister throws an after Thanksgiving dinner party for a few of her friends and family that she wasn't able to spend Thanksgiving with. She's an awesome host and spares no expense when it comes to the decor, food and hospitality. It's always a wonderful and fun night. This year I decided to wear my Purple Draped Dress from Walmart (see here).

The Highly Coveted ASOS Curve Military Jacket with Studded Shoulders

As many of you plus size/curvy women out there that love as much as I do, were aware of the highly coveted Military Jacket with Studded Shoulders (see here). I was devastated when I finally had the money to spare, the jacket was sold out and was not going to be restocked. I was absolutely crushed, but I wasn't giving up hope. As crazy as it sounds people do return stuff to, so being totally obsessed with this jacket, I literally would check the website everyday to see if any were returned. Low and behold I went on the site one morning at work and it was back, I couldn't believe it. They had a size 16 and 20. I needed a 18 but I since I know ASOS stuff can tend to run big sometimes I snatched the sz 16. By the time I finished checking out the sz 20 was gone!! I still wasn't going to get crazy happy until I actually had the jacket in my hands and when I arrived to work Wednesday the package was sitting on my desk. I immediately ripped open the plastic and there it was in all it's glory, it was more beautiful in person! I tried it on and it was a perfect fit even with sizing down, it was like a dream come true. My own little Thanksgiving Miracle!

Night at the Cabaret

I went to see my friend Vanessa open up for her friend Karen Gross who's a Cabaret singer. Vanessa is a spoken word artist and goes by the name The Hebrew Mamita. She's amazing at her craft and I never miss anything she's in. So what better way to represent a cabaret show than to wear a Tuxedo Blazer with Faux Leather?

Girls Night Out

I had a fun  girls night out Friday with a few of my peeps. We all met at out favorite 2 for 1 martini place Pazza Notte (see here). They have all flavors of martinis and the food is great as well. Since we were all meeting after work I wanted to wear something that can be a day and night outfit. So I went with my Scarf Print Top (see here) and Faux Leather Pleated Skirt both from Forever 21.

Sexy in Sequins

Sunday night was the monthly comedy show they have at Creole Restaurant (website here) in my neighborhood of Spanish Harlem called Lozada Lowdown Comedy Show (see FB page here). I try to make this every month because it's always funny as hell. As usual I like to get dressed up for any outing I'm going to, so I opted with a very sparkly look. I wore my Forever21 Studded Blazer (sold out) and ASOS Curve Legging with Embellished Panel (See here).
