La Pecosa Preciosa

A Year at a Glance

Hi Lovies,

It seems like every new year goes by in a blink of an eye, and we are now entering 2017. One of the great things about blogging is that it chronicles your life so to speak. While I can't always rely on my memory to remember everything that has happened throughout the year, I can come to the blog to look back on all I've achieved. I can honestly say that 2016 was very good to my blog and because of all my great accomplishments, it allowed me to grow as a brand and as a person. I no longer look at blogging as a hobby but as a job that I actually enjoy going to. It's so rewarding when I get messages or emails from my readers telling me how much of an inspiration I am to them. They are the ones that motivate me to keep this freight train rolling because the last thing I want to do is let my reader down. So today, I will look back at all I've accomplished this year and continue to feel blessed by every moment!

Glitz and Glam

Hi Lovies,

The other day I showed you a simple by edgy look for NYE, today I am going all out glitz and glam! Of course there is sequins involved, because honestly, there's never enough sequins. Especially for New Year's Eve, you must have some kind of sequins to your look and this Ruffle Sequin Dress from Simply Be was everything! It is giving me all types of sparkle, shine and glam that I crave for bringing in the New Year and that fact that it was in black made it so elegant looking. The sexy top mesh paneling, fun flattering ruffle and on trend two tone sequins made this a show stopping piece. I wanted to show some leg (as usual! lol!) for this look but if this is too short for your comfort, slap on a pair of black tights and you're good to go!


2016 Plus Size Remixes

Hi Lovies!

When I started the Plus Size Remix feature on the blog back in July of 2015, I had no idea what a hit it would be. You guys showed so much love for my inspirational recreations and loved the idea that Plus Size Women can dress just like the straight size women. I had so much fun putting these looks together and also sharing with you some of my fav bloggers and why I chose them to recreate. As with life, things can be unpredictable and crazy so I didn't get to do a PSR each month like I wanted but I promise for 2017 to bring it! Here are all my Plus Size Remixes for 2016, enjoy!

Sequins and Leather

Hi Lovies,

New Year's Eve is only 3 days away, and I have gone into sparkle, shine, glitter, and shimmer overload. This is the time of year where you can get away with all that stuff. Now not everyone is the super dressed up type for NYE, so today I am bringing you a look that is simple but still has that added sparkle that a NYE look should have. To me, sequins is definitely a must and this Sequined Illusion Tunic from Roaman's gives me all of that. I love the variations of colors in the sequins from bronze to gold and champagne. The mesh neckline and sleeves give it a sexy edge while the tunic silhouette flatters the figure. You will definitely be making a statement entering the new year with this sparkly number.

End of Season Sales

Hi Lovies,

Now that Christmas is officially over, here come the infamous end of season sales. People wait patiently for these sales so that they can rack up on all the great deals as well as stock up for next year. Of course I am one of those people, waking up early to check my emails to see what kind of deals my favorite brands are offering. So I decided to compile a list of my favorites stores and share their deals with you, Happy Shopping!

Christmas Glam

Hi Lovies,

For some Christmas Day is a super special day, they pull out all the stops and get dressed to the nines. While I can't say that is the type of Christmas I have, I do love the idea of doing a mega glam holiday look. As we know the color red is one of the favorite colors to wear during the holidays. It's bright, vibrant and it makes a statement. Even for me, who isn't the biggest fan of red, likes to wear it a few times during this time of the year. So a red dress was definitely in order for a glam look and this Kimono Knot Front Dress from Simply Be was a show stopper. The minute I put this dress on, I felt like the belle of the ball. This sensual dress just falls on the body like a dream, the slinky fabric is soft and comfy. The front slit along with the flattering knot detail and kimono style neckline make this such an elegant dress. Is it safe to say that you'll be turning heads all night in this dress? I think so!

Metallic and Feathers

Hi Lovies

Christmas is 4 days away and it's time to start thinking about what you're going to wear. Now there are all types of people. Some like to go super glam, some casual chic, and some simple and easy. Depending where and what you're going to be doing that day, gauges what type of holiday outfit you want to wear. Today's look is an easy comfortable glam look that is great for Christmas or NYE. This Feather Fringe Top from Roaman's is simple with such a chic edge with the feather trim. It can definitely pump up the most causal of looks and the classic black color flatters every figure. 

Treat Yourself

Hi Lovies,

When it comes to the holidays, I enjoy running around and getting gifts for my friends and loved ones. There's no better feeling than bringing a smile to someone's face with a thoughtful gift, no matter how big or small. But the gift of giving doesn't stop there, every year I make it a point to get myself something special as well. There's definitely nothing wrong with treating yourself, if you have the means, I highly recommend doing it. It's a nice way to reward yourself for all the great things you've done throughout the year. This year I decided to do something different and gift myself a hair makeover. With Christmas and New Years days away, I figure why not get this hair right for the holidays. 

How to Stay Winter Cute

Hi Lovies,

I don't know about you but I am not of fan of Winter at all. Despite being born in the Fall, I crave the spring and summer temps. Not to mention how much easier it is to dress myself for work or for leisure and still look stylish. But since I am born and raised in NYC, I know a thing or two about how to remain cute even during these brutally cold months. Here are a few tips on how to stay cute during the winter.
