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.

Jacket: Isaac Mizrahi | Dress: Thrifted  | Earrings & Sunnies: Betsey Johnson | Shoes: Forever21 | Lippie: Milani (Double Expresso)

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.

12 Fatshion Forward Moments @The Make Up Show Orlando

This past weekend I attended the Make Up Show in Orlando. The Makeup Show brings together an incredible range of pro-driven brands, services, celebrity artists, educators and beauty insiders. The show featured over 50+ vendors and 2 days packed with informative demonstrations from experienced beauty professionals. While I was there I had to stop these ladies to find out about their #FatshionFoward looks ! Not only were these ladies serving face but also serving style. I love to see plus size women pushing the fashion boundaries. We can wear what we want and these babes sure did and owned it. Check out how these beauty babe’s do fatshion.

Casey | Orlando, FL | IG: @caseyyyyflhmua

First up the fabulous MUA Casey wearing a sleek black Lane Bryant jumpsuit. Her voluminous lashes and curls gave me life. I loved the sheer bishop sleeves on the jumpsuit and how she paired the look with metallic pointed toe flats from Torrid. When asked what inspired her look she said she wanted to look high fashion without compromising comfort.  Tre Chic Casey <3.
I am here for this athleisurewear look. From her shell top classic sneakers to the netted  T-Shirt dress to the frosted cat eye frames. This look was giving off all kinds of nostalgic vibes. Her hair cut and color, tattoos and ombre lip also gave the look an edginess. 

Mitcheba | Orlando, FL | IG: @moslayyyy

Next up is Mitcheba who is showing us a casual way to rock the utilitarian trend for spring. Going for cute and comfortable with a tan button up from Charlotte Russe, black leggings and single strap sandals. This look is far from basic when you have a crown of braids, glittery gold lips and your brows can cut shade from a mile away. She is two for two with the gold glitter lips which is another Spring trend.  Check out www.glamorouschickscosmetics.com if you want your lipstick to be poppin’.

Getting some serious boho vibes from this babes look. Layered look consisted of a sheer kimono with fringe hem over a wine colored shift dress. Dress featured peek-a-boo cut out and a neck tie. She competed look with lace up heels and shimmery lip gloss.

JLY | Orlando, FL | IG: @dgleecosmetics

Who says curvy ladies can’t slay in horizontal strips. JLY proves em from in this knit lace up shift dress. She paired the dress with black leggings and sparkly black D’orsay sandals. Accessorized with beaded stretch bracelets, statement watch, and black Michael Kors tote bag.

I fell in love with the way this babe mixed monochrome prints. From her striped tote bag and head band to her check board printed leggings. I think her look is a fun was to break up the head to toe black look most professionals where on the job.This babes vibrant hair color initially caught my eye but when she turned around her distressed leggings and bold lipstick choice made me approach her. Another chic way to wear black from head to toe without compromising style or aesthetic. Her gold jewelry, lace up combat boots and lush lashes completed the look. Can you say fine wine? This babe was slaying in her fitted knit midi dress. She layered the dress with a flyaway cardigan and a pair of high top chucks. Add some wayfarer sun glass to block out the haters and complete the look. 

LaLa | Miami, FL | IG: @EsteemByLaLa

Achieve an effortless leisurewear look like this Miami HMUA when you pair your favorite kicks with a chambray button up dress. Chambray is a great fabric for spring because of its soft blue color and light weight yarn weave. Every look is more fun when your hair is purple *hair flip*.  Add baseball cap or hoop earrings to complete the look. Dress: Target // Shoes: JC Penney

Jessica | Tampa, FL | IG: @Makeupjunkye

Jessica’s colorful dreads and sequins top from Forever21 initially caught my eye. But as I approached her I noticed so many other little fashion forward details in her look. For instance she layered Ashley Stewart tights under black shorts from Citi Trends that feature several woven patterns, her leopard eye glass frames and her bright pink backpack. Keeping it cute and comfy she completed her look with a canvas sneakers. When asked how her look came together she said that working in the beauty industry has inspired her to mix glamour and edge without compromising comfort. 

Samantha | Sarasota, FL | @Mizzsamanthaj

The only thing cooler then Samantha’s blue hair was her caged kiss print top. Her top is obviously inspired by the occasion. Love Samantha’s style ? Her outfit is available at Torrid. She accessorized the look with gold hoops, a spike stretch bracelet, watch and sandals.
