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 🙂

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.

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.
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.
