La Pecosa Preciosa

Instagram OOTD's

Hi Lovies!

If you're a blogger, then you know it's not always easy finding someone to take outfit pictures for you. Sometimes you have to rely on your trusty camera phone and take some selfies in the mirror of your outfit of the day. So I've been taking daily OOTD pics at work of my summer looks. If you follow me on instagram, then you've probably seen them but here are some that I've taken over the last 3 weeks.

Summer Nights

Hi Lovies!

Last night after work I attended the NYCurvyCloset plus size shopping event with my niece April. It was 6 of some of my fav bloggers selling their clothing and giving us girls the opportunity to shop their closets! I left there with 2 skirts and 2 tops from the lovely Meaghan of Little Lime Dress for the grand total of $30! (see here for pics) As usual, these events are always fun, you get to mingle and network with your blogger friends. I was also approached by several women that actually recognized me from my blog and told me how much they loved it! It was so surreal and humbling to know that people actually follow my blog and love what I do. Afterwards, me and April went to have some pizza at Two Boots Pizza and took some outfit pics. I was a great summer night fun and hopefully the beginning of many more to come!

Bandelettes: The Chub Rub Killer!

Hi Lovies,

How many of you suffer from the annoying "chub rub" or chafing of the inner thighs for rubbing together  from walking?? I know I do, and it's not a good feeling especially during the hot and humid summer in NYC. I have tried many different remedies to prevent chafing, like using powder,deodorant, wearing shorts etc, but they all failed in one way or another. Up until recently when I came across Tanesha's post from Girl with Curves about this amazing products called Bandelettes.

Wonder Lee 123 Bow Ties

Hi Lovies!

Wednesday night I attended the "Curves at Sea" All White Cruise for FFFWeek and I wore a personalized  bow tie that said "Blogger" made out of a Scrabble board and tiles. I can not tell you how many compliments and admirers I got that night, everyone just loved it so much! So as I promised, I'm letting all my readers and followers know where I got it from and where you can get one too!

FFFWEEK Day 3: "Curves at Sea" All White Sunset Cruise

Hi Lovies!!

FFFWeek is in full swing now and I've been swooning over all the pictures on facebook and Instagram from the different events. Yesterday I attended the "Curves at Sea" All White Sunset Cruise and all I have to say is WOW! It was such a wonderful event, filled with beautiful women of all colors, shapes and sizes! We got to sail around the city and enjoy it's picturesque views well into the evening, ending the cruise with sailing by Lady Liberty. I got to meet more of my favorite bloggers, some that traveled as far as Australia, England, France and Germany! I also got to hang out again with some other blogger that I made friends with at the Ashley Stewart Blogger Breakfast. Not to mention rubbing elbows with the many plus size models that were there, including the beautiful Rosie Mercado from the show "Curvy Girls". It was a night filled with awesome people, dancing, drinking, picture taking, networking and just having fun. Can't wait til next year!

FFFWEEK: All White, Don't Care!

Hi Lovies!

Yesterday was Day 3 of FFFWeek and I attended the "Curves at Sea" All White Cruise. For a lot of us plus size women, wearing white can be challenging, especially with the myth that wearing white makes you look bigger. Since I've been blogging and also reading many of the other inspirational plus size blogs, I've definitely learned to be more body confident and comfortable in my own skin. There shouldn't be any reason not to wear something if you like it. My motto is "if you like it, wear it!" So I welcomed the whole wearing "all white" with opened arms. 

FFFWEEK: Ashley Stewart Blogger Breakfast

Hi Lovies,

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the kick off to Full Figured Fashion week, the Ashley Stewart Bloggers Breakfast. This is my first time attending FFFWeek, so it was all new to me, but it was such an experience! Since I got there early, we had to hang in the lobby of the hotel that the event was taking place at but this gave me the opportunity to meet some of favorite bloggers that I have been idolizing since I started blogging almost a year ago. Each and every one of them was unique in their own way, so amazingly sweet and down to earth. It truly felt like I was meeting a celebrity for the first time. 

Modcloth "Elegance for All" Pop-up Shop Event

Hi Lovies,

Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending the Modcloth "Elegance for All' Pop-up Shop event. They were celebrating their new plus size collection, which was a total delight! Everything was so prim and pretty, I literally wanted to buy everything I saw but I restrained myself to just one skirt. They were also offering cute little cupcakes and champagne to everyone as well. The place was pack with women swooning over all the gorgeous clothing, chatting, trying on clothes and just enjoying the moment. As for my outfit, I decided to go with a dress that was very Modcloth looking, my white and black polka skater dress from Pay/Half, I paired it with my cropped tuxedo jacket from Forever 21 and my Fringed Booties from ASOS.
