Hi Lovies,

The fact that she is a plus size woman, she understands our aesthetic and what we are looking for in fashion. Melissa believes that we shouldn't have to sacrifice style just because we are above a size 12 and designed Melissa McCarthy Seven7 line to give women a whole new love for shopping. There is definitely something for everyone, work wear, casual and dressy pieces. She isn't afraid to use bold prints and colors, and you see this in her tops, bottoms and dresses. Amazing silhouettes, fabrics and top notch quality can be seen throughout this high end line.

The Mini Skirt

Hi Lovies,

For some women, the idea of wearing a mini skirt can be a daunting one. Adding to the many "so called" plus size fashion rules, mini skirt are a no-no. But as you know, rules are made to be broken and we will not tolerate anyone telling us what they think plus size woman should be wearing. So me being the rebel that I am, I decided to prove the nay-sayers wrong and rock this awesome Zip Front Denim Mini Skirt from Simply Be. The zip detailing and large front pockets make this such a fashionable take on the mini skirt. I am also a fan of the dark wash denim which goes well with so many different colors. I love that the denim isn't super heavy so I can wear this on those warmer days and not be too hot. If you're the type who likes to show off your legs, then this is the perfect skirt for you! Oh hello gams!! LOL!

Summer Time

Hi Lovies,

Nothing say summer time quite like a floral print and with temps going up to almost 80 today, it's sure going to feel like it. Florals are another one of my favorite type of prints, next to stripes and polka dots. The floral trend still continues from previous years with printed pants, mini-dresses, skirts, and everything else retailers can put a flower on. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance of summer. I am definitely embracing my inner lady with this Floral Cut Out Swing Dress from Torrid. It's a charming and dainty dress, while still giving some sexiness with the sweetheart neckline. The fit and flare design looks great on most body shapes and gives the dress such a retro feel. The floral print was so fresh and fun with the pinks and hints of green in it. Get ready to be the belle of the ball with this dress.

Pink Lady

Hi Lovies,

I know saying that most women love the color pink is kinda cliche, but this woman right here really does. The color pink just signifies girlishness and feminism, it's also very nostalgic as it always reminds me of my childhood. I adore pink in any shade I can get my hands on, and this Trapeze Shirt Dress was definitely on my hit list. This dress has my two favorite things, the color pink and it's a shirt dress. You already know that I love this silhouette, and this one is great for the summer because it's sleeveless as well as being made of a lightweight fabric. It's so versatile, I can wear this to work with no problem as well on the weekends. Not to mention the awesome hi-low hem and working pockets that makes this shirt dress so different from any other that I own.

Make Up Conversation

Hi Lovies,

If you know me, then you know I can tend to become obsessed with things very easily. Obviously fashion is one of them but my newest obsession is make-up. Within a year I have accumulated a huge collection of make-up and it still continues to grow. I just love everything about it, the concept, the application process and most of all the end product. Just like my beloved fashion, make-up has no rules and I'm all about that. Don't let people tell you that "You have too much make-up!", or "Why do you wear make-up, you don't need it." If it makes you feel good and you enjoy it, then give them a "bye Felicia" and carry on. So when there's a way to combine both of my loves, make-up and fashion, I'm going to be all over it. This Make Up Conversation Print Tee from Lane Bryant was totally meant for me, I loved the little foiled embellished lipsticks and mascaras on it. Such a fun, and girly tee that most women can relate too.

Shark Bite

Hi Lovies,

Every year fashion graces with so many new trends, designs, and silhouettes. It's always a pleasure to see what exciting new things the world of fashion has in store. One trend that I am seeing a lot is the shark bite hem. This type of hem can be the difference between the ordinary and the exciting. With an inverted deep scoop design that resembles the impression left after a shark has taken a bite out of some food source, the outline of the scoops are somewhat ragged in appearance, as well as having the rather dramatic plunge effectYou are seeing this design in an array of skirts, dresses and even tops. I fell in love with this Graphic Print Sharkbite Dress from Fullbeauty, the bright colors and print is so different. The flowy fabric has so much movement and the tie belt made the dress very flattering. This is such a versatile dress and can be worn for work with a blazer like I did here or by itself with a pair of heels. I love statement pieces and this one is definitely one of them.

Christian Siriano x Lane Bryant

Hi lovies,

This past Monday I had the pleasure of attending the Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant runway show at the United Nations. OMG, I am still reeling from the experience, it was just an amazing day. The runway show was on the open patio and the day couldn't have been more perfect for it. The space was all a buzz with so many people from bloggers, influencers, media and celebrities. To say I was beyond giddy was an understatement. As we waited for the show to start, everyone mingled, took pictures and just hung out. Finally we took out seats and the show began, it was just breath taking. I loved that it was no only models who adorned the cat walk but bloggers as well. People were engulfed in the beauty of every pieces that strutted down the runway. At the end Danielle Brooke walked down the runway like a yellow bird, she was a total vision.

May Flowers

Hi Lovies,

This weekend I went up to Albany to visit my dad and family for Mother's Day. I lost my Mom 2 yrs ago so naturally this day is hard for me. But I decided that it was best to celebrate my Mother's memory and be surrounded by the people I love. My mom loved flowers and without knowing, up in Albany this weekend was their annual Tulip festival. It's like the unofficial start to the summer and their version of Central Park is adorned with all types of beautiful tulips, events, music and vendors. So I couldn't be more happier to have picked this weekend to go visit. This Floral Print Shift Dress was perfect for the occasion and definitely went with the theme of the day, which was flowers. I loved the lightweight flowy fabric along with the beautiful floral print that made this such a charming dress. The deep v-neck gave it just the right amount of sexy while still remaining appropriate for work or play. Super comfortable and easy going, which is something I enjoy in clothing.

Orange Cream

Hi Lovies,

Sometimes the most simplest of pieces can be the turn into something cool and fun. I'm a sucker for t-shirt type dresses, especially for the summer. They are a quick and easy thing to just grab and go. Can easily be dressed up with some fancy accessories for work, or dressed down with a pair of slip on sneakers. It's even better when you can find one that has cool fabrics and materials like this Lace Trim Dress from Fullbeauty. I fell in love with the pretty lace trim along the shoulders and flattering A-line design. The delicate pastel orange was so pretty and all in the most comfortable, beautifully draping jersey knit fabric imaginable. The dress come with a matching self tie belt but to jazz it up I added this gold belt. I'll definitely be reaching for this dress a lot this summer.

Easy Breezy

Hi Lovies,

Easy breezy looks have been my go to lately. On the weekends I don't want to put too much thought into an outfit but I still want to look put together. This usually means there's some kind of denim involved. This Button Front Skirt from Simply Be was perfect for my Saturday afternoon with my babe. Beautifully soft and flowy, this skirt is just perfect for the warmer days as well as comfortable with the elastic back and light weight fabric. I love the button front design and flattering silhouette that sets it aside from the every day denim skirt.  You can do so much with this skirt, definitely a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe this for the upcoming summer season.
