OOTD #85: Plus Bklyn

Obsessed with this striped knit cardigan, it adds an effortless chic to any look. I think it’s the faux leather elbow patches that really sold me plus my obvious love for stripes. Especially stripes the are going in different directions it add a fun and detailed dynamic to the garment. It was the last one of it’s kind on the rack. size 3x it was meant to be.  I wasn’t leaving without it, sorry babes it’s SOLD OUT. I’m wearing a basic knit shift dress in a blush pink color. Black, pink and white always looks so good together, one of my favorite color combinations. Winter is all about minimalist fashions layered under luxurious outerwear.

I’m sharing tips for a weekend trip and hacks to help you maximize your luggage space. Most importantly I’m showing you how to stay healthy on the go with easy solutions like Centrum ® MultiGummies ®. Find out what’s in my “Weekender Bag”.

Your favorite liquid cosmetic isn’t available in travel size?

1traveltip_fatshionforward

Fill a contact lens case so you don’t have to bring the entire container. Also great to keep in your purse for after flight touch ups. Need more space then that? Pour product into travel size bottles and seal (I have a tip for that too). 

Tired of your palettes cracking ? Need to repair one that is already broke?

4traveltip_fatshionforward

Place a cotton ball or cotton pad (depending on palette shape) inside your powdered makeup compact and close it as normal. This will help keep the product compressed in the compact and prevent it from shattering in your beauty bag. If you have already broken a palette pour some rubbing alcohol on it, reshape it with a make up brush and leave it open on a flat surface. It will be good as new once it’s had fully dried.

Liquid spilling out inside your bag?

3traveltip_fatshionforward

Place some plastic wrap under the cap of your travel size bottle to help seal the fluid or lotion in. Then screw the cap back on over the plastics and Voila! No more spills. (Use pieces of recycled plastic bag if you don’t have plastic wrap.) You can also place tape around the cap and over the mouth of the bottle to add additional security.

How to stay healthy on the go?

Store perfume, body wash and other delicate items like deodorant inside both pairs of a sock and then place inside your shoes. It will keep them from breaking or being squished in your luggage. It will also help your shoes keep it’s natural shape.

Love It Or Leave It All Black Look

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #37: Love It Or Leave It All Black Look

1FatshionForward_OOTD37

I know what you’re thinking wearing  all black in the Georgia Heat is a crazy idea !! But it actually panned out to be a very cool and comfortable look. It felt effortless and chic the way the cropped peplum paired with the faux leather. I started off with this black peplum top from Boo Hoo that has a diamond cutout along center front and along both of  the straps. I added these black faux leather pants with bows at the back calf from Torrid. I paired the look with my favorite Bohemian inspired summer sandals from Charlotte Russe. You ladies know how much I love color I had to add some color to this look somehow.

Lipstick: Colour Pop “Dr. M”

So I accessorized the look with this silver jewelry set. I have noticed the Elephant stampede in fashion, I’ve been seeing it a lot in accessories and graphic tops. I think it’s adorable so when I was gifted this set I couldn’t wait to incorporate it into a look. The set came with a necklace, bracelet and a pair of earrings that all had a turquoise stone encased in silver. I completed the look with the ultra matte lip color by Colour Pop.
