#TuesdayShoeday Wishlist Feat. Ree-Bok

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
I am obsessed with Ree-Bok’s Freestyle Classic Hi Styles. They are suppppppppaaaaaa comfortable, without sucking the fun out of my look. On long shoot days I would wear combat boots to counteract being on my feet all day but they were so flat offering my feet no support. When I wear these bold colored, double strap kicks I know that I can have a day on the go with no interruptions. Nothing can slow me down with the support that the freestyle classics provide for my feet and ankles.

The foam mid-sole and padded sock liner provide comfort for a smooth ride and soft stepping. These kicks are lightweight yet durable, they cushion each step without weighing down your foot. Best of all, They last. $75 investment that lasts due to the high abrasion rubber outsole. They are available in so many different shades right now but my current favorite is a trio I like to call “Sherbet” soft pink, orange creamsicle, and lime glow. Collect em all like the true sneaker head you are.

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.

Betsessory Haul Pt. 2

“#Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”— Destin Sparks ? #BetseyBabe

A post shared by Sherece?? (@fatshionforward) on


I can’t leave the house without some form of purse to carry my life around in. I use to be popular in school for carrying oversize designer totes. Now that I’m out of school and working I try to keep it light with a small kitsch bag that holds my essentials. If my portable charger, wallet, roller ball perfume, lipstick, keys and headphones fit we’re good to go.  Kitsch bags are great conversation starters they are the epitome of the statement bag and Betsey Johnson does it oh so well. The camera Kitsch bag was a birthday gift from my mom. Great gift for a blogger or photographer. 


My addiction for leopard print doesn’t quit and Betsey enables is. Betsey really knows how to attract a girl’s wild side. This vintage “Leopard Lips” Betseyville bag was a Poshmark purchase. I also got my “Call Me Maybe” telephone bag from Poshmark, I put up quite a negotiation for it. Best part is the phone really works, plug it in and talk or use it as a speaker and play some music. Your phone controls the volume !

Something special that I noticed about Betsey Johnson is that her designs almost always have a special hidden feature that is kind of like a surprise just for you. Whether it’s a silky floral printed lining in a handbag or her famous signature on the zipper pull. She likes to add little details that really make each piece that much more special.

Last but not least my pom pom kicks. These babies came out during the pom pom fad, which has been traded in for pearls this season. Zapp slip on sneakers are available in black and blue. Shop BetseyJohnson.com now! and receive 30% off site wide plus get free shipping. Just use the code BYE2017  at checkout. Happy Shopping ?

A Leopard Cannot Change It’s Spots

OOTD #87: Leopard Wrap Dress
 Hey girl hey ! I am back with another look straight out of Plus Bklyn. Wrap dresses are oh so flattering on the apple shape. The silhouette in combination with the print of this dress is what made it a must have. Whether it’s classic leopard print, colored, snow or grey like this dress, you know I’m a sucker for prints. The warm, stretchy fabric reminds me of a winter waredrobe staple, the sweater dress. Perfect for the cold weather season this body con wrap dress features a V neckline, 3/4 quarter sleeves, and knee length hem.

Get playful by pairing look with colorful sunnies and a kitsch clutch like my look. If the weather is really cold try completing this look with a scarf, boots, and your favorite coat. Or go Parisian by accessorizing with a beret, bold lips, stockings and a blazer. Priced at $59.99, dress is available in sizes 1x – 3x. Happy shopping 🙂
