2fatshionforward_ootd63Olive is the new black. I love this olive green color that floods the fashion scene every year around this time. As I packed for my trip to Tennessee to visit my best friend Brandy <3 she advised me to dress warm. I purchased this sleeveless shift dress from Target‘s Who. Wear. What Collection during Target‘s pre-fall sale. This dress was one of my clearance steals along with a few other pieces. The faux lace up panel at the bust adds a trendy design detail to a simple dress. You babes know how I feel about pockets on clothing, the dress has two large patch pockets that sit right at your front hips. Pockets are perfect for gals on the go, they can hold your phone, lipstick and your keys. Dress has a zipper and hook and eye closure at center back. I’m wearing a 4x, I sized up to achieve a loose fit but dress is true to size.
3fatshionforward_ootd631fatshionforward_ootd63Dress exubes a utility look with it’s color and fabric durability. I layered dress over this vintage Avenue button up shirt. Shirt is sheer, leopard print and features buttons at center front as closure. The layering helped keep me warm and add dimesion to the look. I topped the whole look off with a cardigan by White Stag. Cardigan features detachable faux fur stall and buttons up center front as closure. This cardigan is one of my latest thrift finds, it pairs well with many looks whether casual or semi formal and it’s perfect for the weather. 
4fatshionforward_ootd63I accessorized look with my Juicy Couture starter bracelet and Betsey Johnson leopard print earrings (not shown). My only disappointment with the coat is that it stole the show and hid all my jewelry.  So I definitely will wear bangles or a cuff bracelet and a long necklace next time so that the bling doesn’t under the sea of chocolate brown. Last but not least my cognac booties by Wet Seal, these booties are old but here are some similar ones with a trendy face lift.

Wearing White For Fall

Outfit of the Day #60: Ashley Stewart x Yatir Clothing

3-D Betsey Johnson inspired nails by @NailsByJenny24

Hey Beauties, Today I’m showing you how to transition another summer waredrobe item into fall fashion. I think it is so important to learn how to manipulate your clothes to give you maximum style instead of constantly buying new pieces just to keep up with the season. This method helps you get more familiar with your closet and allows you to put more of your waredrobe to use year round. I know some pieces are much harder to maneuver but start with something simple like a staple piece in a solid color. I chose this white quilted circle skirt because the color and design are easy to match.1fatshionforward_ootd60There use to be so many fashion rules associated with wearing white but now that we are making our own rules it’s time to conquer all our style fears. From afar the skirt might look plain but up-close you can see the texture of the fabric that is created by the quilting effect. Bonus skirt has pockets ! This quilted circle skirt by Yatir Clothing is from their Summer 16 collection. Collection includes a bodysuit and crop tank in the same fabric. It’s a perfect transition piece because the fabric is thick and fluffy making it warm enough for the weather changes. (Pair skirt with your favorite tights and booties for the full fall effect.)  Skirt is available in sizes 10 – 32 at www.yatirclothing.com. Save 10% off your skirt or any Yatir Clothing purchase using my code “fatshion4wrd” at checkout.
4fatshionforward_ootd60 I paired circle skirt with a black tissue tee from Ashley Stewart tee. I love showing you dolls that pieces as casual as a tee shirt can be chic too. I scored this black tissue tee back in August at the TCF Style Expo, Ashley Stewart was one of the fabulous vendors at the event. If you’ve ever worn a tissue tee shirt you know it’s some what opaque especially under bright lights. So I recommend wearing a layer under the shirt to conceal your bra. I wore my white caged crop top by under my tee, problem solved 🙂 . 
5fatshionforward_ootd603fatshionforward_ootd60When accessorizing the look I focused on the pink from the tee. I accessorized the look with a gold bib necklace by Betsey Johnson encrusted in pink jewels of different shades and pearls. My pearl stud earrings have a pink kiss with betsey signature underneath, they are one of my favorite pair of Betsey Johnson earrings. Berry “Ava” flats are on sale now for only $10. Happy shopping 🙂

Jump into Fall

Outfit of the Day #59: Derek Heart x Nine West
2fatshionforward_ootd59Hey babes I’m wearing a jumpsuit today. Yes I know me the girl who thought she would never find a jumpsuit that fit as good as the one at FTF. This knit strapless jumpsuit is soooooo comfortable though. It has a drawstring in the waist making it casual and chic. Plus it has pockets, You know I live for pockets on a garment.  Jumpsuit is one of my latest thrift finds, suit is made by Derek Heart. I paired blue jumpsuit with my leopard cardigan for a fall forward look.
6fatshionforward_ootd593fatshionforward_ootd59I read in last month In-Style that leopard print coats will be making a comeback alongside the bomber jacket and the trench coat as fall’s most trendy outerwear. Leopard print cardigan by Nine West “Woman”. Cardigan has a reversible collar, a straight hem and 3 big black button along center front as closure. This cardigan is so warm and luxe, perfect for the F/W season. I slayed a few trends but conquered two style fears this week. I call them style fears because they are things I use to be afraid to try and wear. I’m wearing a strapless garment and heels which are both huge in my book but tiny in someone else’s.
1fatshionforward_ootd595fatshionforward_ootd59I accessorized this look with this season’s hottest trend the black choker necklace. I tried this trend for the Celebrity Style look, remember that? I think Kendall Jenner really set this trend in motion. I also wore my first pair of heels for you babes you saw it here first, I found these patent leather wedges by Michael Kors and couldn’t resist. I told myself it’s now or never as far as heels go because I never really wear them so it is a scary challenge but I DID IT 🙂 I wanted to give the look an edge, so I added a dark lippie. Vampy lips are in but you can go full punk with a black lipstick.
