I squeal when I go out to the mailbox and I see that plastic bag wrapped around my new issue. I enjoying browsing the latest issue of a magazine but it can be kind of depressing constantly seeing women who look nothing like me and reading stories that I can’t relate too.

Pink isn’t just a color it’s an Attitude

Outfit of the Day #56: Pink Attitude
1fatshionforward_ootd56My favorite color is pink so no matter the season it’s always welcomed. Today I’m styling this pink peasant blouse by Cynthia Rowley. Found this blouse during a trip to TJ Maxx. Peasant blouse features beautiful floral embroidery along neckline, sleeves and hem. One of my favorite features of the shirt are the 3/4 bishop sleeves and the tassels at the ends of the neckties. The neckties form a flirty little peek-a-boo when tied while giving off boho vibes. Blouse is a 3x and is true to size, style is meant to fit loose so if you size up it will be too big.
2fatshionforward_ootd56I paired pink peasant blouse with black low rise skinny leg pants by Michael Kors. These skinny pants fit like a glove around the butt and hips but don’t offer any support for the tummy hence the name “low rise”. I’m wearing a size 3x, pant runs big and I did make a few adjustments around the hip area. Pant has a sphere gold plated MK emblem on the right back pocket. Skinny leg pant features four pockets total; two in the front and two in the back.  Pant also has belt loops in case you want to accessorize with a chiffon scarf, chain or a leather belt.
3fatshionforward_ootd56I accessorized the look with black faux leather oxfords, quilted faux leather bag, and rainbow zebra print nerd glasses. Get all the details on my accessories listed below. I reviewed my shoes and lipstick here so check that out.4fatshionforward_ootd56“Pink isn’t just a color it’s an Attitude too!”

You’ll Fall in Love With These Nail Color Trends

Hey Girl Girl 🙂 It’s Manicure Monday and I’m getting you ready for fall with some nail inspiration from Pantone. These colors are directly from their 2016 “Fall Fashion Color Reports“. In efforts to help you all be on trend for the season I compiled this list of polishes. Request these polishes at your local salon or purchase them yourself for a DIY mani & pedi. You can also buy them yourself that way  you’ll have them to reuse throughout the season.

FALL 2016: A Unity of Strength, Confidence and Complexity

“The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family. Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades. Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.” – Pantone.Com

This Body Is Made For Fatshion

Outfit of the Day #54: This Body Is Made For Fatshion
1fatshionforward_ootd54Hey Girl Hey 🙂 Today’s look is based around a white tee but not just any plain old t-shirt. This shirt represents Lane Bryant‘s Campaign called “This Body“. Today I wanted to not only share with you my style but also tell you what my body means to me. I scored this empowering tee from Lane Bryant’s booth during the TCF Style Expo in Georgia this past August. This tee got me thinking about all the things I have accomplished and all the things I want to accomplish with this body. But my number one passion and love is Fat Girl Fashion also known as “Fatshion”. Fatshion led me to the body positivity movement and now I make it my mission to raise awareness in my community for both.  5fatshionforward_ootd54 How did I style this tee you’re wondering? I paired white tee with a leopard print skater skirt by Chubby Cartwheels. Skirt features gold freckles in the sea of leopard. Leopard print has always been a neutral print in my book because it pairs so well with everything. I accessorized the look with berry pink faux suede pointed toe flats that matched my tee shirt lettering and lipstick nicely. 2fatshionforward_ootd54THIS BODY IS MADE FOR FATSHION.
I love my body. I haven’t always loved it and it has been a challenge that I still sometimes struggle with. But it’s all mine and I no longer apologize for the way I look or what I like to wear. I have learn to love my lumps, bumps, rolls and stretch marks. I have learned to love every pound of me and my self love has become like a bubble around me. People’s words and opinions no matter how sharp can’t pierce through my happiness. My advice to those people still struggling with body image and self love is take it a day at a time, being body positive is not an overnight success. Stop focusing on the negative, focus on the things you love about yourself. Find a new part of your body to appreciate daily. Stop comparing yourself to others, know your worth and never depreciate yourself ! Get your #ThisBody Tee now for only $23, sizes 14 -28 are available. Shirt is true to size I am wearing a 22/24.
3fatshionforward_ootd54I completed this look with some fun accessories from Betsey Johnson. First up a pair of dangle bow earrings that consisted of pink jewels, flowers made of pearls and bronze metal. Last but not least Kitsch Call Me Betsey Phone Crossbody Bag which features a detachable telephone that can you plug into your phone and chit chat when you’re on the go.  Talk about Stylish Technology.

4fatshionforward_ootd54 “This my body. I live in it. Love in it. Work it all the way. This body is all me. Every curve, every roll, every inch. This body is with me every day. Through highs and lows. Ups and downs. This is the body I embrace. To those who doubt what my body can do? I say, watch me. I will show you what this body is. Conquer conventions with who I am. This body is beautiful. Resilient. Fierce. Made to turn heads. Start a revolution. Get it on. Go for broke. Honey, this body is made for anything I want.” – Lane Bryant
