La Pecosa Preciosa


Thank you to Catherines for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hi Lovies,

Hard to believe we are in August already and nearing the end of the summer :(. Summer has always been my favorite season, despite how hot it gets here in NYC. But that time between the end of the Summer and the beginning of Fall is my sweet spot. It definitely starts to put me in the mood for Fall fashion. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not ready to give up my sun dresses and shorts just yet, but my mind is already thinking about transitional pieces I can add to my wardrobe. That's when I scouting out the new arrivals on my favorite sites. Catherines was one the first sites I hit up to check out all the new goodies they had to offer.

City Chic in Puerto Rico

Hi Lovies,

Being able to visit the place where your parents were born is one of the most amazing feelings ever. So when I got the opportunity to work with City Chic on a special trip to Puerto Rico, I couldn't have been more excited and grateful. What was even more exciting was that I was going to be having this experience with 2 of my favorite people, Darlene Lebron of Suits, Heels and Curves and Madeline Jones the Editor in Chief of Plus Model Magazine. All three of us are Puerto Rican with parents that were born and raised on the island, so this trip is special to us in so many ways. This was our opportunity to show you our Isla de Encanto and all its beauty, culture and diversity through the eyes of three women of Puerto Rican decent. Come along on this journey with us!

Summer Style with Catherines

Hi Lovies!

Hard to believe that tomorrow is the official start of summer! Unfortunately NYC hasn't gotten the memo and still thinks it's Spring with all the rain we've been having. But that has not stopped me from getting in the Summer mood. I enjoy browsing all of my favorite sites for cute and fashionable summer styles. For me my summer fashion has to be easy going but still stylish. Catherines has been my go to for this as of late and I've truly been loving their current selections for the summer.

Hi Lovies,

Spring has finally arrived and I couldn't be more happier. This is the time of the year when the city starts to come alive with warmer temps, flowers blooming, and fun spring fashion. Also with spring time comes tons of occasions, like graduations, parties and weddings. Thankfully the folks over at Catherine's totally have me spring ready for any occasion with their great selection of dresses.

The Instagram Wives Get Fall Ready with Stitch Fix

Thank you Stitch Fix for Sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hi Lovies,

I am super excited to bring you today's post because me and my fellow Instagram Wives Darlene of Suits, Heels and Curves and Jami of Style Over Size have teamed up with Stitch Fix! We've partnered with them to show you how Stitch Fix works for 3 different women with unique styles and body types. Darlene is a new mom, so she loves comfortable but stylish pieces for the Mom on the go. Jami loves a good edgy, street style look, preferable with some denim. And I love super feminine, sophisticated, classic styles with a touch of chic that can double for work and play. So we were very excited to get a refresh for our fall/winter wardrobe with the pieces we got.

The New Little Black Dress

Hi Lovies,

If you didn't know by now me and my boo Darlene from Suits, Heels and Curves have a Facebook Live sale called The Blogger House Curvy Closet Sale. We use this platform to sell clothes from our closets that we no longer want at a discounted price. During the sales we are constantly talking about certain wardrobe staples that everyone should have in their closets. Surprisingly I have yet to do a post on this but definitely putting this on my blog post to do list! One of the things that is for sure a wardrobe staple is a LBD (little black dress). Everyone needs an LBD because there is so many things you can wear it for. You can use it for work, date night, special occasion, the options are endless. Now for some a LBD might be too much on the boring side but with all the new trends and options available for us Plus Size gals, you don't have to settle for plain.


Hi Lovies,

I am officially in Fall mode, whether I want to be or not lol! One of my favorite things to do with my summer wardrobe is create looks where I can incorporate pieces into Fall. You guys know how I love to invest in pieces that I can transition into several seasons. It challenges me to remix my clothes and come up with new and fresh styles for the season. Plus it saves you tons of money on buying clothes for the new season as well. Win-Win!

Leopard Print is the New Neutral

Hi Lovies,

Hi my name is Sandra and I am a Leopard Print addict! Lmao! If you've been a long time follower of my blog, then you know that I have a slight addiction to leopard print. To the point that even my blog design has the print on it! Well folks I am happy to announce that this season's hottest trend is none other than (drum roll please), LEOPARD PRINT! God has answered my prayer and I can now run amok in head to toe leopard and no one will judge me. Now I know that this print is not for everyone and can be a little daunting. But don't fret, leopard print is considered a neutral and literally can be wore with anything.

Fall is Coming

Hi Lovies,

It's hard to believe that Fall is officially 3 days away. As you know I love the summer so it's safe to say I am not thrill for the upcoming season. But I will say that all the new Fall Fashions that I am seeing on the interwebs is actually getting me a little excited. All the trends coming down the pike like Plaids, Leopard Prints, Bold Colors/Prints and Suitings are all right up my alley. It's wonderful to see these trends being represented by a lot of my favorite plus size brands. But the one brand who always gets it right and brings the heat when it comes to trends is Eloquii. Their last few fall collections that have dropped have proven that Eloquii isn't playing any games this season. They've hit all the on trend fashions and I literally want everything. 

Summer Fashion with Macy's NY Collection

Blog: This was a sponsored post with Macy's but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Hi Lovies,

I love shopping for summer fashion, it's my favorite time of the year to shop. The summer is where I really thrive with my fashion and really put all my efforts into it. You guys know that I have a full time job and I am always looking for pieces that can play double duty. I like getting a bang for my buck so to speak. Having a variety of places to shop is also important and Macy's has been coming through in the clutch with their summer options. Their NY Collection has such fashion forward and trendy pieces that can be worn for both work and play. I have been obsessed with jumpsuits lately which is crazy since I  use to never wear them but now you can't stop me from being in one. This Tie Waist Jumpsuit from the NY Collection has been the perfect addition to my wardrobe. It's super chic,  comfy, easy to wear and great for day or night. I am loving the blue color and the tie waist feature which is so flattering to the figure. The crop leg design is on trend and a great way to show off your shoes. When I talk about double duty, this jumpsuit is the perfect example of a piece that can easily be transition into the fall. If you haven't shopped Macy's NY Collection before, definitely make sure to pop over to their site. Take advantage of all the fabulous things they have to offer for the Summer.
