Celebrity Style #2

OOTD #92: Celebrity Style

Hello fatshionistas 🙂 How did your week go? Do you know one of my most popular posts to date is my Celebrity Style post with Kendall Jenner. So I’m back at it again with a new look this time by Leona Lewis. I enjoy turning Celebrity Fashion into Fatshion. I’m recreating some of my favorite straight size looks worn by some of your favorite celebs and show you how to achieve the look in your size. Now let’s talk about his Leona Lewis look inspired by this fabulous striped maxi skirt I bought during my last trip to One Curvy Boutique.  I took to Pinterest and google looking for some ideas since nothing that came natural to me felt quite right.What did the results produce, you ask? This lovely photo of Leona Lewis on the red carpet in 2015 at the GLAMOUR U.K. Women Of The Year Awards. I let the stripe skirt be the center of the look as it’s dramatic length and fullness definitely exudes star quality. Just like Leona I paired my striped maxi skirt with a strappy crop top and black blazer.

I made the look my own with a bold red lippie and my accessories. I tried the mitch match trend via Betsey Johnson earrings and kept it trend with a layer pearl necklace. Can I just say that I love every time pearls come back in style they are personally one of my favorite vintage jewels.

Drop me a comment below and let me know who’s look you want me to tackle next 🙂

Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

OOTD #91: Sunshine On A Cloudy Day
On the days that I wake up and I’m feeling oh so grey. Those days when I just can’t seem to shake the funky mood, I go to my closet and find an outfit that will brighten my mood. Either a bright color or a fun print, Something whimsy and playful to cheer me up. You know that saying “If you dress well you’ll feel well” I truly believe that.  On this cloudy day I went with a nice pop of yellow, I intended to literally add some sunshine to my day. This Calvin Klein dress features a layered fabric design down the front, and a zipper closure at the back. Dress is a true size 24 and the fabric is so comfortable. I accessorized this fun little day dress with a black floppy hat, A pair of black leather oxfords with cut outs.  Do you babes remember this striped blazer I bought at Plus Bklyn last year at the photo party. Well I have been living in it, so comfy and so chic. The elbow patches give off certain sophisticated professor vibe, I love the contrast between the stripes and the color. I completed the look with a black leather handbag with gold accents.

What I Wore….To See Black Panther

OOTD #90: My $11 Dress

Hey beau’s ! It’s been a long week for me with my grandma passing. My family decided to get out of the house and have some fun so we went to see Black Panther. The 12 of us piled into a few cars and then lines two rows in the theater. The movie was soooooooooooooooo good, I was literally on the edge of my seat for half the movie. Can I just say I loved the representation of women’s strength and power? I also loved all the fine eye candy in the movie, heeeeeyyyyy Michael B Jordan ;).  But seriously I recommend you round up your gyals or take your guy out and go see it! I was a little disappointed with some of the African accents, but impressed by the authentic Swahili. The costumes were AH-MAZING I couldn’t stop myself from cheering when I saw Jordan with his black panther suit with the leopard print mask!

Now let’s talk about what I word. My look consisted of a striped shift dress with a red rose print that I purchased at Ross Dress for Less for only $10.99. As soon as I laid eye on it I knew I had to have it. The print reminded me of Betsey Johnson and you babes know I live for Betsey. I accessorized the look with a black and gold striped clutch that was actual Betsey Johnson and so we’re my black bow sandals. I completed the look with a bare face and a bold red lippie.

Mints & Prints

OOTD #89: Mints & Prints
 Hey girl hey ! It been a while, since I’ve posted an OOTD. Just been so busy with my personal life, I know I don’t talk much about that on the blog but I hope to open up more this year. Any who let’s talk about this outfit, shall we? My mom travels for work and I swear the things she finds in these thrifts store out of town always blows my mind. During her last trip she bought me 2 dress and a crop top. This nude and black aztec print dress is one of her latest thrift finds. The elasticity of the fabric makes it a curve hugging, I love the 3/4 Midi length. I paired the dress with lace up flats and a peplum jacket but I also think I would look fabulous paired with a moto jacket and booties.
Now let’s talk about this jacket hunny ! Isaac Mizrahi came through for the fat gyals with this one. The print is so suttle and then the pastel color pops. The cut and seam placement of this jacket is oh so flatting. Shiny gold zipper down center front adds a luxe feel, plus it’s comfortable. I am definitely taking this jacket straight into Spring with me.

How I Care For My Bras

First things first I want to introduce to you my favorite bra. The butterfly bra by Ashley Stewart comes in 5 styles and a variety of prints and colors. The plunge, full coverage, soft cup, convertible and they also have a bralette style. It’s the perfect time to invest in some new under garment, Ashley Stewart is having a red hot sale for Valentine’s Day. Sizes D through H are available.

The double-back wrap panels conform to your curves for superior support, while eliminating bulges for a smooth, polished look. Both the Plunge and Full Coverage style bra also features wide straps for maximum comfort, 8 hook-and-eye closures, push-up gel pads, and underwire contour cups.

As versatile as it is sexy, the Convertible Butterfly Bra can be worn six different ways! The bra also features detachable straps, for your favorite strapless looks! The Soft Cup style has no molding or padded, it was designed with everyday comfort in mind. A gold butterfly charm is the feminine finishing touch. The Butterfly Bra is exclusive to Ashley Stewart and its flawless fit makes it their most popular bra.

Now for Care, I turn my cups inside out, close all the hooks, fold it in half and place it inside a  mesh laundry bag. I place my machine on gentle/delicate cycle and set water to warm. Closing the hooks before washing prevents snagging and deforming of hooks and eyes. Placing the bra in a mesh bag stops the straps for entangling around each other and loosing shape (this also causes bones to poke through). Also ensure that your strap buckle will keep it’s setting. Caring for your bra’s properly help maintain the life of your bra.
