Fall Fashion Faceoff #FFfaceoff: Tartan (Plaid) Trend

Hi Lovies!

As you all I know I am not a fan of the fall/winter seasons, so to get myself in the mood I decided to join Kelly's of MasqueMag awesome Fall Fashion Faceoff Challenge! I think this challenge is great because it pushes me to get more involved in the throws of the Fall Fashion. Tartan/Plaid has become a major trend for this season and is spreading like wild fire. I've never been crazy about plaid but I have to say I've seen some cute and fashionable pieces in many of my favorite plus size stores. So I took the plunge and went with this amazing emerald green plaid Moto Jacket from MYNT 1792 via Gwynnie Bee

Skater Girl

Hi Lovies!!

It seems that I've fallen into yet another obsession and that's skater skirts or dresses, I can't get enough of them! They happen to be super trendy at the moment, of any style and material, especially in leather (faux or real). So when I saw this Emerald Skater Skirt from ASOS Curve on Gwynnie Bee, I had to try it. I spoke about Gwynnie Bee on my last post, see here. I had been eyeing it on ASOS for a while but of course I waited too long and it sold out. You can imagine my excitement when I saw that Gwynnie Bee had it available. I have to say this is one of the best skater skirts I've worn, it fits like a dream, it's well made and the color is amazing, plus it comes with the belt. I was so pleased with the skirt that I immediately went to the ASOS website and ordered the black version which is on sale for $24, as well as the red and navy versions.

Ombre and Stripes

Hi Lovies!

I'm really having a hard time letting go of summer, and refuse to get into fall mode. So this weekend, despite the cooler temperatures, I still dressed with summer in mind. I purchased this Ombre hi/low skirt from Forever 21 back in July and have worn it about 3 times, which is a lot for me. I love this skirt and always get compliments when I wear it. I adore the turquoise/aqua color as well as the beige color it transitions into. I wasn't a fan of the whole ombre trend this summer but this skirt definitely made me a fan. 

Dots and Stripes

Hi Lovies!

Since summer is coming to a close, I feel very pressured to wear as many of my summer dresses as I can before it gets too cold. I was lucky enough to grab this dress from Modcloth during their huge yearly sale where they are practically giving stuff away. Of course I waited to long to buy stuff and almost all the awesome pieces were sold out in my size (I'll be better prepared next year! lol). But I was very happy to have gotten this very adorable and dainty dress from them. You get the best of both worlds with this piece because it has polka dots and stripes. I'm also totally in love with the color combination, green, black and a peachy color look so great together. To see Modcloth's awesome plus size line, click here.


Signature by Ashley Stewart Career Collection

Hi Lovies!

Back in June when I attended the Ashley Stewart blogger breakfast during FFFWeek (see here), I got to see a preview of some pieces from their A/W 2013 collection. Everything they showed was awesome and on trend for the fall season. AS has totally revamped their fashion and are reconnecting with their target market as well as their growth with social media and online presence. The folks over at Ashley Stewart contacted me and asked if I'd like to participate in their new campaign which consist of a new career collection called "Signature by Ashley Stewart". They asked that I choose 2 items from their Signature collection, mix and match the pieces with accessories, heels, and even treasured items from my own closet to create a unique professional "Desk to Dinner" ensemble that reflects my own personal style. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and was very flattered to have been asked to participate in their campaign.

My Fall Lust List

Hi Lovies!

Now that my favorite season comes to an end (tear!), I am forced to start looking for new Fall clothing. Of course I always hit up my "go to"online stores to see what goodies they have. As I peruse the websites, I noticed that a lot of my favorite trends are being carried over to the Fall season, such as faux leather, stripes, polka dots, military chic, peplum, and animal print to name a few. Even though I love summer, I'm actually looking forward to the upcoming Fall season and with all the amazing things coming, how could I not?! Here are a new things that I've added to my Fall "lust list".







What's on your "Lust List" for the Fall?

Until next time lovies!

Painted Love

Hi Lovies!

As many of you know, is one of my favorite online stores. My very first blog post, which I did almost a year ago (can't believe I've been blogging a year already!), was about ASOS. I've been shopping with them since 2010 and my very first purchase was this Painted Tulip Bandeau Dress. I loved this dress but the funny thing is I've only worn it one other time! That's what happens when you have too many clothes, you continue to buy more and forget about what you already have. It's a vicious cycle, but I digress and decided to pull this oldie but goody out and strut my stuff in it! I have to say this dress is definitely a show stopper, got a lot of lookers and women complimenting me on how pretty it is. I don't blame them, this dress is totally awesome!

Blossoming Beauty

Hi Lovies!

The summer is coming to an end so quickly so I'm trying to wear as many of my dresses as possible. This gem of a dress I had to have the minute I saw it on I totally fell in love with the floral print and how happy it made me feel. I decided to wear this dress to an after work happy hour cruise with my Beau and it was a hit! I'm a huge fan of this website and own 3 other things from them which I love just as equally. The best part about them is that you can customize the clothing to your exact measurements for a better fit! This dress as is, comes strapless and the length is below the knees but I decided to add tie-ups at the shoulder and made the length above the knee for a more playful look. I completed the outfit with turquoise  colored accessories which went so well with the colors on the dress.

Bandeau To Make Her Dance!

Hi Lovies!

Well I'm finally back on the my blogging ish! It can be very hard to blog when your photographer has her own buddy career (how dare she! lol). But I'm back, and back with a vengeance! When I first saw this bandeau, I was immediately drawn to it because it was another one of my favorite prints...CAMOUFLAGE! Since I've been trying to push the envelope and step out of my comfort zone, I decided to purchase it with an outfit in mind. Now we all know that denim vest are super trendy and popular this summer, so I paired it this lace back vest from Forever 21 with the bandeau to give me more of a comfortable feel and not be so overly exposed. Also to "camouflage" some of my love handles I wore a skater skirt with a bit of a high waist. I felt the outfit was pulled together, cute and showed just enough skin without feeling like a Hoochie! I also wore my wedge sneakers for a more urban, street look which completed the outfit.

Hi Lovies!

I'm so excited to I can barely type this post but yours truly has been featured in the July/August issue of Skorch Magazine!
