OOTD #86: JUNAROSE

OOTD #86: JUNAROSE
Hellooooooo winter weather. With the temperature dropping faux fur is keeping fashionistas warm everywhere. From stalls to hats to coats in an array of colors. My entire look is by Junarose, I walked into Plus Bklyn and this coat was one of the first things that caught my eye.  A faux fur that’s fully lined and has POCKETS, how could I say no. Coat is available in sizes 0X – 2X, I’m wearing the 2x over a LBD.

 

Dress features side ruched details, round neckline and 3/4 length sleeves.  I accessorized round neckline with pink pom pom necklace available at Plus Bklyn. Dress is also a 2x and hugs my body nicely.

OOTD #84: Wheat x Olive

OOTD #84: Wheat x Olive
Hey girl hey ! Happy #FatshionFriday 🙂 This outfit of the day is brought to you by Plus Brooklyn.
Shop entire look at 455 Graham Ave Brooklyn, NY 11211 or online
I visited this Brooklyn bound boutique this past weekend for a Photo Party. I had so much fun playing dress up and shooting with shop owner. Even the rain and some drive by fat shaming couldn’t stop us. The difference between Plus Bklyn and other  boutiques is that they’re BODY POSITIVE.
 Their racks are filled with apparel that is stylish, on trend and most importantly true to size. Like this “Olive Two Piece Set” by Rebdolls, I’m wearing a 2x. If you love minimalist fashion? Try this boxy cotton t-shirt and matching high waist legging for all day comfort and effortless style. Pair with a hooded long line coat to complete your fall forward look. This faux suede coat by Junarose is nice and warm thanks to the borg lining, it’s also cut larger to layer comfortably over all your cold weather looks. Accessorize with your favorite kicks or boots.

What I Wore To See Sweeney Todd

OOTD #82 : Sweeney Stripes

As you know I spent the past couple months costuming Sweeney Todd. Jessica (my partner in costuming) and I had a themed pattern and color palette that was apparent through all the characters looks. Red, white and black mixed with stripes. There were also red splatters every where but you can blame that on the demon barber of Fleet street. I took my outfit inspiration from our costume theme and put together a look for myself for the finale show. I wanted to see my work from the audience so I got a ticket for the finale show. After designing for the cast I wanted some Sweeney stripes of my own, so here is hat I whipped up. 

Black and white striped tunic with cap sleeves, and a ruffled flounce at the hem. I designed and sewed this tunic myself. I purposely sent the stripes in different directions to putt your eyes where you want them too. I paired striped tunic with solid black stretchy leggings. I accessorized the look with red tennis bracelet, red lippie and red suede round toe ballet flats.

I absolutely love wearing my own designs, because they are one of a kind and it feels good being an original. Want a custom Fatshion Forward piece of your own ? Contact me at FatshiionForward@gmail.com with “Custom Design” in the subject line and a brief description of what you had in mind. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

The Golden Rules

Happy Fatshion Friday loves 🙂 With the Fall season approaching rapidly I wanted to give you babes my golden rules to transitioning your waredrobe from summer to fall.
Rule #1 : Thou Shall Layer: Tanks , Camisoles, and short sleeves shirts can be layered over a long sleeve shirt or turtle neck. Short sleeves can also be layered under cardigans, blazers or sweaters. Add leggings or tights under short skirts and dresses.
Rule #2: Thou Shall Play Up Colors : Play up the darker shades in your summer prints like I did with this look. 
Rule #3: Thou Shall DIY: Get creative ! Dye your light spring and summer colored clothes a darker tint. Whites to Nude. Yellow to Mustard. Pink to Red. Purple to Eggplant.

WHAT I WORE TO THE DINNER

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #77: Something New
My family was in town so we all got together and went to Sushi & Grill Restaurant for dinner.  Since we we’re trying some new food, I was inspired to try a new look. I’ve been dying to wear this new skirt I made, so I based the look around it. I purchased this lavender color fabric in the Spring during a trip to NYC. I fell in love with the fabric’s subtle giraffe print and soft hand.  Last week blogger and designer Mone convinced me to try pastel colored lipstick. I thought this look would be the perfect time to bust out  my NYX lavender lippie I bought at the Make Up Show Orlando earlier this year.Keeping the train rolling with these fashion firsts,  I accessorized my look with a black knit turban, pointed toe flats and Betsey Johnson Camera Kitsch Bag. Kitsch Camera bag was a gift  birthday gift from my mom, it’s been one of my most steady summer accessories. The cross body strap allows hands free carrying which I love when I’m on the go. I can have my hands free to snack, take selfies, or text. I fell in love with the turban it added a cultured yet chic element to the look, this piece will definitely be a repeat offender.  Tank: Ross | Skirt: Fatshion Forward (by me) | Handbag: Betsey Johnson | Shoes: Charlotte Russe | Lipstick: NYX Pin Up Pout Lippie (Wisteria – Neon Lavender)
