La Pecosa Preciosa

Stripes and Denim

Hi Lovies!

Now that summer is soon coming to a close (tears!), I am unfortunately getting my mind set for the Fall season. By doing that, I start going through my Summer clothes and seeing what I can transition over to Fall. I'm all about clothes that can be carried over from season to season and denim is ones of those things. Whether it be a dress, skirt or jeans, denim is a year round staple in my closet. This skirt from Eshakti is a perfect example, it's great right now for the remaining summer days but can easily be worn in the fall with tights and knee high boots. I just love the deep indigo wash on this skirt and the soft pleating, which gives it such a feminine look. Eshakti makes amazing skirts, I have a few in my wardrobe (see here and here) and you gotta love a skirt that comes with pockets!

Plus Size Remix: Galant Girl

Hey Lovies!

Welcome back for another edition of "Plus Size Remix"! If you missed the very first PSR, you can see it here. This months inspiration came from the beautiful Elenna of Galant Girl. She has amazing style and her pictures are fabulous, I could go through her blog for hours. I was immediately drawn to this outfit because of her amazing midi skirt, which was the perfect shade of bubblegum pink. Along with the polka dot top, just made for the perfect lady like ensemble, which is totally me. I couldn't wait to recreate it!

butter LONDON Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon Review & Giveaway

Hi Lovies!

I have never been huge on make-up, my regime consisted of lipstick and blush. The reason being, my knowledge of  how to use it was limited. But thanks to my blogger boo Darlene, she has totally gotten me into doing more with my make-up. She's been showing me a few techniques with application and I have also taken to YouTube for tutorials and such. I find the art of make-up totally fascinating and I give it to you ladies who can beat your face into submission. So when butter LONDON reach out to me asking if I'd like to try their brand new innovation products, I figured this would be a good time to delve into a make-up review. Now the only thing I knew of butter LONDON was their nail lacquers, which are amazing. So I knew what ever cosmetics they were going to send me was going to be great. I was even more excited when I received the box and it was filled with a plethora of their new Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayon. They sent me the whole collection which consist of 7 amazing colors, in pinks, reds and neutrals. I couldn't wait to try them out!

Casually Tropical

Hey Lovies!

By now you probably seen these fabulous Palm Printed Soft Pants from Harper + Liv on a few bloggers. My girls Jeniese, Darlene and Shainna look awesome in them. I spoke about this new brand in one of my previous post here and how much I'm really enjoy their clothing. These pants were nothing short of amazing and so on trend with the beautiful print and color. They are super comfy and the quality is excellent as well as being cool enough to wear on the extremely hot days. I love the inset rounded hem as well as the easy pull on style. These pants don't have much give so keep that in mind when deciding on the size.

Hi Lovies!

I have a lot of favorite colors, and if you follow my blog, you can figure out what they are. But I have to say one of my all time fav colors is Chartreuse. It just makes me so happy and puts ya in a great mood. It's the type of color that commands attention and who doesn't like that, right?? This maxi dress from Old Navy was no exception to that, the color was amazing and it was so simple but elegant. I loved the side splits that made for easier mobility and it was lined which is need for a color like this. Not to mention the numerous style possibilities and color combos you can create from it. It's the perfect summer dress!

Garnerstyle x Rebdolls

Hi Lovies!

If you haven't heard by now, Chastity from the blog Garnerstyle teamed up with the plus size brand Rebdolls to create a capsule collection. I was super excited when I heard about this collab, Chastity has impeccable style, so I knew it was going to fab. When it dropped Thursday, I immediately went to the site and was overjoyed with what I saw. The collection was nautical inspired which is a favorite of mine and consist of lovely maxi and body con dresses/skirts as well as crop tops and an amazing pair of pants. All the pieces are super chic and budget friendly, priced between $26.50-$58.00, sizes ranging from S-5X. The collection has already made strides with many pieces selling out within hours of it dropping. Some pieces are being restocked and are available for pre-order, so I highly recommend ordering now if you want something.

Blogher 2015: What I Wore

Hi Lovies!!

If you follow me on an of my social media platforms, then you know that I attended the Blogher 2015 conference. Blogher is the world's largest conference for woman content creators. You are able to meet and connect with bloggers of all kinds in one place. It's a 2 day conference jammed packed with sessions, sponsor events, keynotes and just an all around amazing experience. Plus all the information I learned about blogging as well. I highly suggest you go at some point in your blogging career, it's totally worth it. I was luck enough to attend the conference with some of my fav blogger boos Georgette, Jeniese, Darlene and Marcy, which made the weekend that much better. We had the BEST time ever, felt like a girls slumber party they entire weekend. I can honestly say these woman are one of the best things that came out of blogging. Of course since we are all fashion bloggers, we took extra care as to what we wanted to wear. We knew that we would be doing a lot of standing, walking so comfortable attire was a must but that doesn't mean we couldn't be cute. So here what I wore.

In Living Color

Hi Lovies!

I've realized that whenever I wear something colorful and fun, it puts me in a good mood. There's just something about it that easily puts a pep in my step. I will admit that in the past my wardrobe was never this colorful. I was that girl who only wore earth tones, black and whites, because I was afraid of how bold colors would look on me. Well obviously that has changed and now my closet is literally a rainbow of colors, I can't get enough of it. When I did the look book for Modamix (see here), they gave me all the pieces from their Boho Chic line. Some didn't make the lookbook but I have definitely been putting those pieces to use, like this beautiful Tapestry Dress with Zipper Detail. Just like the skirt I wore in the look book, this dress was just as fabulous. The colors and details were absolutely amazing, so bold and bright. This dress totally makes a statement, and caught quite a few eyes as I strutted my stuff around the city. Since I try to take my fashion to the next level, I decided to wear this dress backwards. The front has a zipper coming down the middle (see stock picture at the bottom of post) but I thought for the look I was doing, the other side was better. It's like having 2 dresses for the price of one!

It's a Wrap!

Hi Lovies!

On my style journey, I continue to try and push the envelope with my fashion. I love that I have a certain "style" so to speak, that people associate me with. But I also don't like to get stuck in a rut with my fashion. I like to try new trends and fashion that are different but I can also work into my everyday style. Fashion to Figure is a great place to try out new trends and out the box styles without having to spend a fortune. When I saw this Hooded Denim Wrap Jacket, I was a little apprehensive but it definitely caught my eye. I usually hate anything with hoods but I knew there were quite a few styles I could accomplish with this jacket. Plus it was denim and you could never go wrong with that. I got a size 3 and there was plenty of room. Since it's a wrap jacket you can make as loose or fitted as you want. You can also add you own belt to change up the look, which is something I plan on doing the next time I wear it.This jacket can totally take me into the fall season and easily be layered with a turtleneck or sweater.

Shirt Dress Savvy

Hi Lovies!

Shirt dresses are definitely a staple item that we should all have in our wardrobe. I love the simplicity and classicness of them, it's a total no nonsense piece. They can be worn in numerous ways, for work, date night, brunch, or casual weekend, the options are endless. While looking through the Old Navy site, I came across this Striped Oxford Shirt Dress. I totally fell in love, it just looked so cute and comfy, perfect for the weekend. It was also very light and airy being made of cotton and the fact that it was short sleeved, helped as well. Now for me, as much as I love shirt dresses, they can tend to make me look a bit boxy so I always belt them to give me some shape. Old Navy has definitely stepped their game up and I have to say I am very happy with all the things I've gotten as of late.

This dress is a size XXL from their straight sizes
