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 ūüôā . 
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 ūüôā

You’ll Fall in Love With These Nail Color Trends

Hey Girl Girl ūüôā 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

Passion Fruit & Print

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #42: Passion Fruit & Print

Hey Dolls, How is life treating you? This week I’m slaying in some serious designer threads. On top I’m wearing a fuchsia top from Vera Wang’s Simply Vera brand. I love the color, I call it Passion Fruit. Top is size XL but the fabric is very stretchy and fits comfortably. Who said fat girls can’t wear Vera Wang? This top features a chiffon inserts at it’s draped neckline, hem and pleated sleeves. Talk about an amazing thrift store find.

Skirt designed and sewn by me. I was gifted this fabric during one of my trips to New York. It is a monochrome print; black, white and grey make up it’s color palette. I love a culture print and wanted to make a circle out of it. The print pairs well with pops of color like this fuschia top. Skirt features a black 1 1/2″ elastic waistband, full hem and wax finish. Fabric has a stiff hand that naturally adds volume and flare to the skirt.

I accessorized this look with black oxfords, bow stud earrings, bangles and a handbag. Patent leather oxfords feature pointed toes and a shiny finish that adds a dapper elegance to the look. Handbag features braided handles and inside zipper pocket.
