My Faves From Charlotte Russe Plus!

charlotte russe plus
Charlotte Russe Plus came out a few months ago. I looked at the clothes, thought they were cute, and then forgot about them because life got hectic and what not. Now I am back. I saw a skirt on Garner Style’s Facebook page and thought I better take another look at this line. Charlotte Russe’s plus size section is really cute. I really love some of the basics and jumpsuits that they have on the site. I haven’t seen this collection in stores yet. If you have, let me know what you think about it below.

Beauty Bit-OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum For Anti-Aging

 

FTC: I was given this bottle of OZ Naturals Hyaluronics Acid Moisturizing Serum by Brandbacker.com. This is an honest review.

You guys have to get this. It is a pretty smooth serum that has some great anti-aging properties. The ingredients are great too. No alcohols, sulfates, or parabens. It is $15.79 on Amazon, and they have prime shipping. I have been using this on my hands, and the skin definitely looks brighter. I am going to continue to use it. I put it on my face and hands before I moisturize, but after I use toner. I received this awesome product from Brandbacker.com.

one one threePlus size clothing line One One Three is back and it is bangin’!!!I don’t know if you remember One One Three, but I blogged about them here a few years ago. I have have always loved their clothes and style. I think they are edgy and fun. Tres cool y’all! You should check out their collection for the summer. The line features pants, tops, outerwear, and even swimsuits in that hot neon tropical Miami style that is super popular right now! The pieces are moderately priced and are UK sized 18-26. I think that should be a US 14-22. Photos from One One Three.

Beauty Bit- Unboxing My Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box

Walmart Beauty Box

FTC: I paid for the Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.

I just got my Walmart Beauty Box in the mail.  As always, the boxes are “free”, but you do have to pay $5 for each box. That adds up to $20 a year since you get a box four times a year with each new season. This box was a little more exciting than my last one. There are better items in the box this time. I think I am going to actually use most of them. Yay!! You can find out more about the Walmart Beauty Box here.

The Fall 2015 Couture Fashion Shows Are Giving Me All The Feels

Couture Fall 2015

From L to R: Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, Zuhair Murad, Christian Dior, Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Alexis Mabille

I just want you all to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the fall 2015 couture fashion shows. They are giving me all the feels. Sometimes I am skeptical of what I see. Sometime designers either do too little or too much with couture. This season though… was amazing.

Beauty Bit- Unboxing and Trying My New Schwarzkopf Ultime Hair Products

natural hair
I received these Schwarzkopf Ultime products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes a few weeks ago. I shot the unboxing video, but I didn’t get to post it. You can find these products exclusively at your local Walmart. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer helped create the line. I was worried that these products wouldn’t work on my natural African-American textured hair, but at least one of them did.

Plus Size Fashion: Forever 21 Belted Dress

FTC: I received this dress courtesy of Forever 21. This is an honest review.

Hey everyone! I received a very pretty, very cool dress from Forever 21. I am saying cool because it is the kind of dress that you can beat the heat in. I don’t think this dress is still on sale on the website, but they have some other equally as cute short, belted dresses in their plus size section. I am wearing a 3x. I normally wear an 18/20 or 3x. I can say that is does fit me very well, and it has an elastic waist. I think this dress was under $30.

Here are a few more options:
Option 1
Option 2

Plus Size Fashion: Harper and Liv Show and Tell

Thanks Harper + Liv for the awesome Items! Harper + Liv is that new plus size line that TFAS wrote about a few weeks ago. They sent me some items to wear, and I love my pants and duster. I was going to do one of my plus size fashion films, but the heat was like sike!. I had everything planned to go to this parking garage and do something cute, but it is toooo hot. Today it was 103 but supposedly it feels like 106. I can’t. Anyway. I enjoyed my clothes. I think I might size up on the pants next time so they can be a little more baggy. They fit well, but I like baggier clothes.

Beauty Bit- I Finally Blogged About My BH Cosmetics Haul

BH Cosmetics HaulFTC: I paid for these products from BH Cosmetics myself. This is an honest review.

Hello everyone.

It has been a long, long time since I really blogged. I am now done with school. You can see some of the images from my final portfolio show on Instagram @thefatandskinny. I am going to try and blog more regularly now. My first blog post back will be this quick BH Cosmetics haul. I bought some amazing items from BH Cosmetics and I just wanted to let you know about them. All three items ( BH Floral Blush Duo in Tulip, the Contour & Blush Palette 2, and the 10 pc Sculpt and Blend Brush Set) got amazing reviews. See my haul video below.

Accessory Minute- Plus Size Rings

plus size rings Sorry I have been away for some long. Two weeks seems like an eternity, but I have been busy with school. I only have a few weeks left and two weeks ago I had midterms. Everything is going by so fast.

Anyway. For today’s Accessory Minute, I wanted to write about plus size rings because I have large fingers. I think my ring size is a 10, so I always have trouble finding cute, stylish rings to fit my finger. ASOS Curve has a ton of rings on their site.

Shoe of the Week-Strappy High Heeled Sandal

strappy high heels

The Kristi from boohoo is the perfect strappy high heeled sandal. It is hot and very sexy. It looks really uncomfortable, but who cares because you are going to look so cute in them. I can see people rocking these shoes in jeans, with a cute dress, or even an evening dress. For $44 at boohoo, you can’t beat that. How would you rock these?

Accessory Minute- Leather Totes and Faux Leather Totes

leather totes

I love leather totes. I have been using them since I can remember. They are the perfect travel bag. Have a carry-on that is not only useful, but stylish too. They are great to take on tours around the city because they can hold a lot of things. You can take them to work and use them as the female equivalent to the male briefcase. If you are an animal lover, please know that these type of totes still come in plenty of faux leather options that still have the same or similar look and feel without hurting animals.

Beauty Bit-NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette

FTC: I paid for the NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette myself. This is an honest review.

I recently bought the NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette from Ulta, and I love it. I can use it for soooo many things. You can too. I have used it for my eyebrows, for contouring my face, and hiding hyperpigmentation. I recommend this product because it really does conceal, correct, and contour.

Currently Craving-Bell Bottom Jeans

hh017_bleachwash_l

I am currently craving bell bottom jeans. I am actually craving high-waisted bell bottom jeans, but any bell bottom jean will do. This is a 70s pants trend that I really love, along with last week’s culottes. They look rather good with some platform wedges or heels or a little Birkenstock sandal. I have found some in most stores right now. The trend is that strong. If the widest bell bottom isn’t your style, start small with a bootcut jean instead. Have you started shopping for bell bottom jeans yet or are you just not into them? Photo from Simply Be.

Shoe of the Week- Pointy Toe Flats

pointy toe flats
Pointy toe flats are everywhere this spring. I first saw them gaining some traction last spring. Now they are out in stores in different colorways and textures. I love these flats because you can wear them to work, out on the town, or casually throughout the day. You know how I love items that bring longevity to my wardrobe. The sad thing about pointy toe shoes is that they don’t usually fit the wider foot. #flatfootstruggles. The struggle is real y’all. So if you can flaunt it, go right on ahead. Do you like this trend? It is easy on the eyes or a pain in the butt? Photo from Target.

Accessory Minute- Bucket Bags

bucket bags

Hey ladies! Have you been feeling the recent bucket bag trend? I remember bucket bags being really popular when I was little. They were everywhere, and then they kinda just went away as trends do. Now, again as trends do, they are back. I love bucket bags. I think that they are really sharp. I also like how they can come in various colors, sizes, and fabrics in whatever price point you want. Medium to large sized leather and canvas ones look really good with casual outfits during the day. Smaller sized silk and satin ones look great at night. Don’t forget the tassels. A great bucket bags has awesome tassels. Are you in to this trend?
