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.
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?
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.
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. (more…)
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. (more…)
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? (more…)
Culottes are the hot new trend in fashion right now, but they actually aren’t that new. They were popular in the 70s. Yup! That’s right! Another 70s fashion trend is making a way back into stores and into our closets. I love culottes. They are very comfortable, and plus sized gals can wear them too!
I always talk about flatforms to anyone that will listen. This style shoe isn’t for everyone, however those that wear them look very cool. They look like they don’t care what people think. I wear them because I like the minimal look that they have. I also like them because they are comfortable.
Hobo bags are casual and cool. You can slouch them over your arm and go. If you are looking for the ultimate “I want to look stylist without really trying” bag, then try a hobo. They are great to take to the beach, the gym, to run errands around town. Some of the leather ones are great to dress up an outfit. They also may have metal hardware on them that gives them a more sophisticated look. They also have really plain ones now that are great for an everyday minimal look
Bianca Jagger had to ultimate 70s chic Studio 54 style. In this picture, she shows you how to work a wide leg pantsuit. Wide leg pants are coming back in style. Skinny pants, if worn, are being modified. I don’t know if the skinny pant will go away and wide leg pants will prevail, but the wide leg pants is a trend worth trying. What do you think of this look? Photo from here.
It is spring time and white jeans are kinda having a moment. I rarely wear white clothes. This is super TMI, but I always feel like my period is going to come on just because I wore white and spoil my fashion moment. Like for why and for what? UGH!!! Anyway. I love white jeans. I have a pair that I love, but never wear because of my own personal paranoia.
Single soled shoes have been making a comeback for some time, and they still are trendy, but….. with the 90s and 70s fashion trends coming back, you know the super high platform had to make a comeback too. They are everywhere. You can find them at Topshop, Nordstrom, Forever 21. Every store has there own versions of the shoe.
Today in Accessory Minute, I wanted to write about one of my favorite accessory trends of the past few years-the mini bag. I love mini bags. I am one of those people that try to carry their entire home in a bag, purse, backpack, whatever. Mini bags force you to cut things down to the bare necessities. You can’t carry 20 lip glosses in a mini bag, and that is the beauty of the mini bag. (more…)
That 70s trend isn’t going away anytime soon. I’ve been trying to tell you. Are you listening? If you haven’t seen it yet, you will see it soon in hair, beauty, and clothes. The Boho look is back in stores for spring. Flare jeans are coming back, and skinny jeans were few and far between on the runways lately.
So you may recall me talking about how I am shopping for dresses to wear to several weddings this year on the blog and social media. Well I still am looking for some plus size dresses because I just learned that one of the weddings will be held outside. That changes things. Now I need to find something that won’t be too hot or too cold depending on the weather. (more…)
I loved the details and embellishments shown on the clothes and the accessories at the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week. While everyone was talking about the pregnant models and the babies going down the runway, for me the shoes were my favorite part. Some were velvet, some were furry, and some had all of these sequins and things on them. I love the basic black pumps, and the slingbacks too, but who can resist a Mary Jane pump. I love Mary Janes. I just might have to incorporate them into my fall wardrobe. I have months to plan. Photo from here.
The red lip ruled the 2015 Oscars. From Margot Robbie to Emma Stone- who I was told is wearing Revlon of course- red lips were everywhere. Now a few ladies did opt for the neutral, natural lip, but their beauty looks didn’t stand out to me. It was the Oscars for crying out loud! If there ever were a time to go red, last night was it. Below you will find a bunch of red lip products to choose from with various price points. I picked out some lip glosses, lip sticks, and more because I know everyone doesn’t automatically want a lipstick. Photo from here.

I don’t know if you have been following the shows and trends lately, but there seems to be some kind of clash going on between the 90s and the 70s. Some of you favorite styles-and many that you hated- from the 90s are coming back full force, but coming in neck in neck with them is the 70s. Culottes in various lengths of short are back, suedes and animal prints, platforms, and even bell bottoms are coming back. Are you ready for the 70s trend? Is it something you are going to attempt come this fall? I might. We shall see how it goes. Photos from the Georgine PR reps and Style.com.
FTC: This #TBT Style Icon With Boohoo.com post was done in conjunction with Boohoo.com. They also supplied the clothes.
Hey everyone. Can you guess what my #TBT Style Icon with boohoo.com is? Hint, hint. The name is in the title of this post. British retailer Boohoo.com told me to pick out some clothes and base them on one of my style icons for a #tbt or Throwback Thursday post. One of my favorite movies from the 90s is The Craft. I love the story of four teenage witches pick to live in a house with seven strangers….sorry. Sorry. Wrong show. (more…)
