The minimalism of the previous seasons are truly a thing of the past. Spring 2016 couture was truly decadent in nature. Even the most bland of garments had a little something extra going on. Many garments had low cut necklines, pajama dressing is still in, and flouncy chiffon and lace are still a favorite with extra beading in the mix.

Denim Street Style

Have you ever thought about certain denim street style looks that you think should be made into plus sizes? Well I’m back with another post where I show y’all street style looks that I would love to see/make for plus sizes. The first post in the street style series is here. Sidenote: If you are someone who wants your clothes to be flattering, this isn’t the post for you. I am from the f*^k flattering school of thought. If I like it, then I will wear it. :) OK. Moving on. These are the looks I really love. I can’t wait for plus size designers and plus size women to start taking more style risks.


Currently Craving: Eloquii Hits The Sweet Spot With New Collection

Plus size retailer Eloquii hits the style spot with their newest collection called The Sweet Spot. It looks like something out of a Wes Anderson movie, and I am in love. This has to be my favorite Eloquii collection yet. It probably has something to do with my love of Wes Anderson movies. I think the other reason I like this collection so much is because it isn’t something that other plus size clothing companies are making, and it fits in more with my own personal style.

Battle of the Yaki Lace Front Wigs! Help Me Choose One!

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Ok guys and dolls! Please get me out of this hair dilemma. I need your help in picking out a yaki lace front wig. I have been looking at different yaki lace front wigs for months. Since I am natural, and very fond of protective styles, I want a wig that will mimic straightened hair so I don’t actually have to straighten my hair. I am so afraid of damage. After being natural since 2012, I want to keep my hair growing and strong. Protective styles, like twists and wigs, help my hair to grow because I am not playing in it or adding heat to it all the time. The thing I like about yaki lace front wigs is that they look more natural on my head. Sometimes I want a wig that looks like it could be my hair.

Currently Craving – Great Fitting Wide Calf Boots

wide calf boots
Finding great fitting wide calf boots is hard. Very, very hard. Luckily for us gals with wide calves, there are a lot more options out there than years before. Stores like Eloquii, Avenue, Ashley Stewart, and Lane Bryant are giving us options to two step in. Literally! I have never seen so many options for wide calves every! Another thing that I like about all of these options is that a lot of these boots are now coming in wide calf, wide feet or extra wide calf, extra wide feet. I had a hard time finding wide calf boots that would fit my equally wide foot. The fact that companies are making that kind of option now is amazing!

potenetquotesetsy, printables

I recently opened up an Etsy shop full of 8 x 10 printables called PotentQuotesEtsy. Everything is $10, and you can get them printed in any paper at your local print shop or at home. Some of them have Bible quotes on them, some of them are monograms, and others are sorority art and stationary. I decided to make a little printable shop to make money on the side since I am still looking for a job after graduation, and I need to fund my fashion design dreams. If you see something you like, please support. Thanks.

Three Street Style Looks I Would Love To Make In Plus Sizes

I recently graduated from fashion design school, and am starting to cultivate what I want my line to be like. In the mean time, I still see items that I would like to see made in plus sizes regardless of whether I make them or not. Creating a plus size line is hard. Trying to develop a decent size chart and patterns to match is stressful, and trying to fight people’s stereotypes and misconceptions about themselves and how they should dress and/or how plus size women should dress in general is even more stressful. I get why developing a plus size line is hard, but come on…some of us want cute styles too.


#PrayforSouthCarolina and More Ways To Help

This is my hometown. This is my state. This is Columbia, SC.

Hello everyone. I have struggled to write blog posts this week because writing about fashion just seems so frivolous to me at the moment. I am hoping that while you read this your family and friends are safe and sound. Unfortunately for me that is not the case. The floods from the recent hurricane have turned my state, and especially my hometown, into a disaster zone. While most of my family is safe and accounted for, my friends have not been so lucky. Several of my friends are looking for a family member that may have been washed away. It has been days since they heard from him. Several of my friends have either had to evacuate or have lost everything. One friend had to grab her children and run when the water started coming into the first floor of her home at 1 in the morning.

Walmart Beauty Boxhttps://youtu.be/NdE9fGk5Gj8

As usual, I have purchased a new Walmart Beauty Box, and so I decided to unbox it for you. You can get these boxes for about $20 a year. You get four Walmart Beauty Boxes for each season and you only pay $5 for shipping and handling. I actually like some of the products that were used since I had used some of them before. I also like how I received a ton of coupons to save money when I go shopping. Yippee!!!
