La Pecosa Preciosa

Kisses and Tulle

Hi Lovies!

If I could wear a tulle skirt every day, I totally would. There's just some thing about it that brings me back to my childhood and always wanting to be a princess of some sort. The pretty frill of it, the poofiness that makes you think of cotton candy, and just the all around whimsy. Now in my world, you can never have enough tulle skirts, so when I saw the pink tutu skirt from Zelie for She Spring collection, I absolutely fell in love. Zelie for She was started by designer & plus size blogger Elann Zelie. Elann launched Zelie for She in 2012 with a mission to provide fashionable and affordable clothing for the curvy fashionista. If you didn't get a chance to check out Zelie for She lastest collection, then you need to do so now! It was chock full of girly, pink fun, including this gorg tutu.

Coral and Denim

Hi Lovies!

If you read my last post, I attended the Monif C. "My Beach is Better" Preview event. It was one of the best events I've been to in a long time, had a total blast! Since I had to work that day I wanted to wear something work appropriate but also can be chic enough for the event. After stalking this Coral Midi Skirt with Pleats on ASOS for months, I finally caught it on sale for $27! I adore this skirt and as much as I like showing off some legs, I'm beginning to dig the midi lengths skirts now. The color is so vibrant and eye catching as well as very versatile. I can dress it up or down as I did here with a denim shirt, moto jacket and gold accessories to make the outfit pop!

Instagram Weekly Outfit Recap #13

Hi Lovies!

Here's my outfit recap from last week, see photos for outfit details!

Pop Up Plus Spring Challenge

Hey Lovies!

Being in this plus size blogger world, you get approached by a lot of different brands. But I always seem to gravitate towards the small, independent designers because they normally have more fun, unique things that you don't see everywhere. So when I was contacted by Camy of the brand Pop up Plus about joining in their Spring challenge, I was more than delighted to participate. The brand started as a pop-up shop and has currently expanded to an online website, which is great. So to grow more exposure and engage members of the plus size community to their brand, they asked a few bloggers to join in their Jogger Challenge. We were asked to choose from 3 different jogger pants, (see here, here and here) give them our own flare and style them.

Splurge vs. Steal: Slip-on Sneakers

Hey Lovies!

As you may know, I'm not a fan of sneakers and own only one pair that was literally worn once! Nonetheless, I've found myself drawn to the whole slip-on sneaker rave. They look super comfortable and can go with a bunch of different things in my wardrobe. Plus there's no rhyme or reason to them, you literally just slip them on and keep it moving. No laces to deal with, straps etc.. I've been looking into getting a pair and of course I fell in love with the leopard print version (duh!). I'm all for a bargain, so before I invest in anything I do my research and see what I can find at the best price. Now some folks are all about brand names and luxury, me on the other hand doesn't mind finding a knock off that can easily be pulled off as the designer version. Here are a few that I found online.
