The venue for the first Plus Size Men’s Fashion show was loft in uptown Manhattan. Every seat was  filled as the music blared. The host announced the first brand, MVP Collection. The plus size male models descended from up stairs as the worked the runway around and through the crowd the cheering ladies. The clothes were high quality and trendy for men of various ages and lifestyles. The styling was on point I loved the accessorizing of hats and the layered looks. 
A grey button up shirt, black tee, dark denim, canvas sneakers accessorized with a small brim hat. I can see a lot of guy wearing this look layering and un-layering the shirts as the season change. Color story can take you from summer straight into winter.Velour suits are making a come back in both men’s and women’s wear. Pair with a graphic tee, classic white kicks or Timb’s and a snap back and go. Velour suits look effortlessly cool.
This look plays on the classic plain colored tee, which is a waredrobe staple for a lot of men. Starts with a red t-shirt, paired with white distressed jeans accessorized with a white fedora and white kicks.
Velour suits look effortlessly cool even when pair with the most basic waredrobe staple for men the plain white too. Again another look that can carry you straight through to winter. Purchased sets can be interchanged and they look good with high tops, low tops and boots.
Sleeveless plaid button shirt paired with stitch detailed straight leg acid washed blue jeans and white shell top Addidas. The Lumberjack look gets an update.Grey short sleeve button shirt layered over plain white t-shirt paired with stitch detailed straight leg blue jeans. Accessorize with grey small brim hat and black kick.If your all about comfort and a chill aesthetic purchase this velour suit in red, grey and black. Multiple your waredrobe quickly by interchange suit with graphic or plain tee’s. Black athleisure hoodie with short sleeve layered under a sleeveless plaid button up shirt. Complete the look with your favorite jeans and sneakers.

Camouflage is a print we seen worn all year long. Back just in time for summer in the style of cargo shorts with a matching hoodie. Pair the set with a graphic t-shirt and your cool kicks.

Not a fan of shorts?  Army fatigue print also available in pants. Pair with plain tee, denim vest and high top sneakers or combat boots. As the weather changed you can switch out the vest in this look for the hoodie in the last look.

#TuesdayShoeday: Betsey Johnson Slip On Sneakers

2bjsneakers_fatshionforwardHappy Tuesday Shoes-day dolls ūüôā Remember last month when I met Betsey Johnson at Macy’s. Well while I was there waiting to meet the 8 I did do some shopping. I purchased a pair of puff slip-on sneakers. These shoes kill the the pom pom trend. Sneakers feature an over-sized, faux-fur pom-pom adorned to the round toe cap. I have been seeing pom poms everywhere on earrings, cell phone and handbag accessories, and on shoes. Not sure where the trend derived from maybe Rihanna started with her work video, drop a comment and share if you know.

I am not gonna lie I was not a fan of the pom pom trend initially but it grew on me. I decided to try the trend in a subtle way, and I knew these black velvet shoes were the way to do it. As soon as I saw them I was in love and I don’t own any Betsey Johnson shoes so I was eager to grab them. Sole of sneaker offers a nice 1″ platform.
1bjsneakers_fatshionforwardElastic gore allows for easy slip on and off, sneakers are super comfortable and great for casual looks. These babies are priced at $69.00 and are available in sizes 6.5 -10. They were sold out in the color and size I wanted so I placed an in store order with Macy’s and they shipped the shoes to my house for FREE. I bought the shoes on Saturday and they were at my house on Wednesday. Quick, easy, painless. These sneakers also come in cobalt blue.

What I Wore To The TCF Style Expo pt.2

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #48: TCF Style Expo Look 2

This past weekend I drove six hours to Atlanta, Georgia to attend “The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo“. On day two Marie had a two panels scheduled: “This Body: A Conversation About Self-Acceptance, Body Image And Size Diversity” and “Model 101: So You Want to Be a Model?” She also had tons of vendors set up for shopping and two fashion shows: “Ashley Stewart Fashion Show” and “TCF Style Fashion Show” on the agenda. I attended the body positivity panel as the subject is important to me. I very much enjoyed the panel the women spoke their truth and made some very valid points about the industry, brands and womanhood in general.

expo-11
(L to R) : Erica Watson, Alysse Dalessandro, Maui Bigelow, Shaina Glover, Jes Baker, & Lakrisha Joseph – Baker.

“This Body” panel beginning at 3 P.M featured Erica Watson, Alysse Dalessandro, Maui Bigelow, Shaina Glover, Jes Baker, &  Lakrisha Joseph – Baker. Comedian Erica Watson had the room in uproars with her jokes and side comments. Alysse, Maui, Shaina, and Jes are my bopo warrior babes, I have been following their journeys for a while. It was inspirational hearing them share bits of their stories and life experiences. Lakrisha’s message was so relatable and touching I was almost in tears.

0FatshionForward_OOTD48 Now let’s talk about my look, I wanted to try the matchy-matchy trend. How to rock this trend? All you have to do is wear one color in one shade from head to toe. I saw the trend in the August 15th issue of People Magazine. The collage of celebrities wearing their clothes, shoes and accessories in one hue inspired me. Pink is one of my favorite colors so it was easy to slay the trend.

I started my look with this pink caged crop top I purchased from society plus. They have this sassy little staple top in seven colors. Then I paired it with my favorite pink tutu from Charlotte Russe. I tied the look together with this fabulous pink fur vest from ReDress. I purchased this faux fur last year during the spring season so this piece is no longer available.

My glamorous jeweled necklace by Betsey Johnson pulled the look all together. Necklace features a cluster of gems in different shades of pink with a few pearls in the mix. I paired the outfit with nude faux  leather pointed toe flats from Charlotte Russe. Nude is such a soft and versatile color it matched well with the blush pink. I sealed the deal with this natural pink lipstick by Estee Lauder the color is called Grapefruit.
