La Pecosa Preciosa

Casual Dressing with Dress Barn

Hi Lovies,

I live for those days where you don't have to put any effort into a look but still want to look cute. Who what of thought that I could find that type of clothing in Dress Barn? When I think of DB, I think of a place I would go to get clothes for work, but it has evolved into so much more. Their DB Sunday line is all about causal, comfy lounge wear pieces that are fashionable as well as functional. This Space-Dye Hoodie was one of my favorite pieces, incredible soft and comfortable. The space-dye print along with the soft peachy coral is so spring. The hood and kangaroo pouch pockets gave this top such an athleisure feel and the short sleeves made it easy to wear for this season. This has easily become one of my favorite tops to grab for the weekend.

Calla Lily

Hi Lovies,

By now I'm sure most of you have seen the Victoria Beckham for Target collection. When I saw a preview of the collection back in February, I fell in love with everything. I couldn't be more happier that the collection came in plus size as well. Not mention the pricing was super reasonable for this kind of collab.  I was drawn to the 60's Mod style, the silhouettes, prints and bold colors that were perfect for the spring. I was one of those folks up super early to grab some of these amazing pieces. Unfortunately none of the Target stores in my area carried the plus sizes so I took a chance with sizing and ordered a bunch of dresses all in size 3X. Surprisingly, my packages arrived within 2 days which never happens when I order from Target. I immediately opened the package and was so happy with the amazing quality of the pieces. But sadly out of six dresses I ordered I only kept two, one being this gorgeous Calla Lily Satin Ruffle Hem Dress


Solving My Shapewear Problems With Kohl's

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included shapewear as compensation.

Hey Lovies,

One of the most daunting task for a woman, next to finding a swimsuit, is finding the right shapewear. This can also be a touchy subject for some people, shapewear isn't for everyone and I can totally understand. But this girl here is all about having the proper foundation so that the clothes I wear look amazing on. Now in a perfect world, there would be one shapewear that works with everything. Unfortunately that is not the case, certain articles of clothing require a different type of foundation. Well thank goodness for Kohl's, they had such a great variety of shapewear for all my needs. 

Floral Love

Hi Lovies,

It's hard to believe that this past Saturday was in the upper 80's here in NYC. I could actually pull out my sandals and let me tootsies be free. Not to mention grabbing something floral from my closet that will make a statement as well. You already know my love of bold prints, bright colors and fun florals for the spring/summer seasons. Finding a fun floral is not always easy but when you do, definitely take advantage especially when you can find in one of your fav silhouettes. The Kate Dress from Roaman's was the perfect addition to my wardrobe for the season. The shirt dress design along with the beautiful blue floral print made this such a lively dress. I love the structure feel of it and how easy it was to wear with the flattering trapeze style fit. The versatility of this dress makes it easy to wear in so many ways. Whether you wear it for work or play, this dress will definitely be a head turner.

Getting my Groove Back

Hi Lovies,

There are times in my blogging life where I can hit a wall and kinda lose my groove. It's hard sometimes to keep the creative juices flowing and continue to produce fresh content. A lot of things can factor into that, like your personal life, or stress from work. I also promised myself that I wouldn't let blogging become a chore or a job. I want to always look my blog as a source of happiness and make it something that I'm proud of. That's why it's ok to take a step back, give yourself a break and reboot. This is a great way to get a better perspective of what you're doing and open your eyes to the bigger picture. Not only that but it'll give your mind a chance to chill so that when you are ready, the creativeness will be in abundance.

In The Trenches

Hi Lovies,

So my obsession with Eloquii has grown to a whole new high as of late. I've found myself purchasing something from them almost every week. But to my defense they have been slaying the fashion game for this spring season and it's almost a crime not buy something. They also just recently dropped their swimsuit collection and all I can say is OMG! You definitely need to check them out ASAP. Now I am all about dresses that are different and unconventional. So when I feasted my eyes on the Off The Shoulder Trench Dress, there was no doubt in my mind that I had to have it. This dress sold out so quickly but thank goodness it just came back in stock! They took a classic and iconic piece of outerwear and made it into a masterpiece of a dress. The off the shoulder design adds a flirty touch while the trench aspect keeps it looking polished and sophisticated. The A-Line silhouette and self tie belt makes it super flattering. Who needs a power suit when you can have the ultimate power dress, am I right??

Birds of Paradise

Hi Lovies,

Happy Monday all! Spring has finally made it's way over to NYC and we have been having the best weather. Easter Sunday was in the 80's! I don't know about you but this type of weather puts me in the best mood. Especially when it comes to getting dressed, all I want to wear are my fun pieces of clothing. In one of my previous post, I mentioned how the fruit trend has become very popular this season. Well besides fruits, animals and birds have been hitting the scene as well. I just love the whimsical and lively feel of this trend. and one brand that gets this is Eloquii. When I first saw this skirt on their Instagram Live during the opening party of their DC pop-up shop, I nearly died. It has stripes and colorful parrots on it, nuff said!  This playful print just made me so happy not to mention catching the eye of quite of few people. Eloquii's signature studio midi never disappoints and this skirt is definitely Bae right now.

Who What Wear

Hi Lovies,

I know I am totally late to the party with the Who What Wear Collection for Target. Honestly I don't know what took me so long to actually buy something. I've loved everything they've had since they first launched last year with their spring collection. Since then they have been adding to the collection with each season and I've been loving it. Not only has the pieces been on trend, stylish and fashion forward but they made this collection size inclusive. The collection is available in plus with sizes ranging from 14W-26W which in my book is pretty amazing. Their newest stuff definitely caught my eye and I ended up buying quite a few pieces. I just really loved the Retro-Modern vibe of the collection. The simple colors, patterns and silhouette of the pieces are such a refreshing and effortless look for the spring.
