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.

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.
