I have stylish relationship goals. I promise you I’m not vain, however I want the ability to have my future beau and I look effortlessly cool. I don’t want to look like we try to hard, because when it comes to getting dressed everyday…I really don’t try that hard. When I look at this picture of style icons Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, I just see cool. My future beau and I may never be that cool. That is a-ok, but…we can try.
It is so hard to believe that New Year’s Eve is almost upon us, but it is and you need to be thinking about what kind of shoes you are going to wear to ring in the new year! I found some hot party shoes that are super affordable and super festive. I mean who doesn’t want to have fun in cute shoes!? Tell me what you are thinking of wearing or doing for New Years below in the comments. Shop the post below so you can get your party on! Photo from Missguided. (more…)
You only have a few weeks left before the holidays, so you better get to shopping for the men in your life. I put together a little holiday gift guide to help you out. Shopping for men is easy, you can always find a shoe or some clothing item that they need like a sweater of scarf. Some men prefer grooming items, and some men would actually need you give them the hint with a shaving kit or two. None of these items are over $150 and a lot of these items are going on sale soon. Don’t forget to check below for the gift guide. (more…)
Thanksgiving is almost here, so you need to get your beauty look together. I found a lot of fall festive options to wear on Turkey Day from Sephora and Ulta. Now is the time to get into these fall colors. I love wearing plums, berries, bronzey browns, and lots of golden shimmers. For the past two or three years, I have been wearing brown and gold eyeshadow, golden blush with a hint of plum or berry and a deep and very dark lip. I can’t wait to play around with my makeup on Thursday. Photos from Sephora.com and Ulta.com. Find more options below.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the invites for holiday parties have started coming in. Do you have something to wear? Plus size holiday dresses are getting cuter and cuter. I found a few, plus a jumpsuit, that I thought were to die for.
Winter boots are no longer ugly. Many brands make some cute and fashionable winter boots. Most of the boots featured below don’t even look like the regular chunky looking winter boots, and most of them are either winterproof, weatherproof, or waterproof. That is really great considering winter has come early and strong, and you know you need to get yourself a pair of boots before the next snow.
Just like the little black dress, the classic black pump or a cute pair of black heels have a classic appeal to them. You can wear them with everything and wear them just about anywhere. Few shoes will get you as much mileage as the classic black pump. While looking on ASOS, I saw a slew of black pumps that instantly caught my eye. Some are available in half and wide sizes. All of the ones that I picked are under $100, but the ones below are just a sliver of what you will find on the website. Photo from ASOS. (more…)
FTC: Boohoo.com sent me the jacket. I paid for the rest of the outfit myself. This is an honest review.
I just wanted to bring you this fall plus size fashion video with pieces from Boohoo and DSW. This is kind of a Halloween inspired video with the orange and black colors. This outfit was really fun to wear. (more…)
I recently got some wide calf boots from DSW that actually fit my calf muscles. Color me surprised. When I see a boot labeled wide calf in the store, they don’t usually fit. I get really skeptical when I see the label on boots because of that. However… When I went to DSW there were a ton of boots to pick from. Some fit and some didn’t, but the ones I bought look fantastic. (more…)
Have you found your vampy fall lip color yet? Mom and I just bought our new lip shades for the fall. Both of our shades are a deep, dark red. My shade is glossy and mom’s shade has some glitter in it. You don’t have to have some dark, matte shade. These colors can be glossy or glittery to suit your mood or taste. I love changing my makeup look with each season. It makes your beauty routine so much fun. Take a gander at NikkieTutorials’ vampy fall lip color tutorial to get a beautiful new fall look.

Ahhh! It’s that time of year again; back-to-school! No more late nights, road trips and movie nights, it’s time to get back to the books, studying and forgetting that you ever had a social life. Summer came and went in the blink of an eye, and if you’re like me, you’d do anything to have another week or two of summer relaxation. Then again, a part of me, is ready to stand in front of my closet and pick out an outfit for the first day of school. Yes, even as a college senior, I still get excited about what to wear on the first day back. I know I’m not the only one out there.
The first day of class is always scary, especially if you have no idea where you are going. For those who may be starting their 2014-2015 school year starting for some next week, here are some outfits that will have you looking and feeling good on your way to class. You will definitely get an ‘A’ in style on the first day, even if you have no idea where you are going!
Outfit #1: Laid back and Comfy
With this particular outfit, instead of wearing the sweater, you could wear the wear a white tee and have the sweater around your waist for when it gets cold. Unless you live in windy cites, like Chicago, then you should wear the sweater and a shirt underneath it so you won’t freeze to death.
Outfit #2: Preppy meets Boho
Are you a Pretty Little Liars fan? If so, then you know this outfit has Spencer Hastings written all over it!
Outfit #3: Minimal Fashionista
This outfit is for the fashionista who like to keep it simple in a pair of jeans and a white tee but wants to add a little flavor to the mix with accessories, like the floral scarf.
Outfit #4: The Girl Next Door:
This is a girly, yet simplistic outfit for the girl who doesn’t go out of her way just to look cute. Keeping it simple with a watch and a pair of sparkly flats, she’s all set!
Outfit #5: California Glamour Girl
It’s still summertime, so taking advantage of pastels and bright colors is the way to go whether it be with skirts or dresses. Accessorize with different kinds of jewelry, aqua would be my go to color with this coral look. If you aren’t looking to be a “California Glamour Girl”, try adding leather accessories to give this look some edge.
Outfit #6: Sporty Urban Chick
This look is for a girl who loves her vans and isn’t that into shopping. If you love tribal prints, this look is for you! Keep the accessories to a minimum; all you need is a pair of skinny jeans, a tee, and your vans and you’re all set!
Outfit #7: Hanna Marin
Another reference to Pretty Little Liars, this look has Hanna Marin written all over it; girly patterns and purses. Wanting to be comfortable during the day, a pair of white chucks will complete this outfit.
Which outfit is your favorite?
Thank you Ashley Goode, a Virginia based stylist, who helped me come up with the names for these outfits! All images in this post can be found on Pinterest.
Look at Beyonce. Look at her. Beyonce is giving me fall wardrobe inspiration in one photo. I love the long boyfriend coat, the black jeans, and the heels. I am looking for the perfect pair of black heels for the fall. Hopefully I can find them soon. I also want to learn how to make me a coat like the one she is wearing a with a funky print. Ahh! It is almost time for fall. Photo from here.
I adore the pre-fall fashion in Eloquii’s new August lookbook. Prints and patterns are something that I think Eloquii does a great job of. Just because you are plus sized, that doesn’t mean you can have fun with color, shapes, prints, and patterns. There is a dress and a pair of pants in this lookbook that are calling my name y’all. I listed a few of my fave pieces down below. Photos from Eloquii. View the rest of the lookbook here.
Graphic tees for plus size women are extremely hard to find; I know, I’ve been searching for a while. A lot of plus size women long for graphic tees, being able to dress down and look fashionable is a must for everyone, no matter what size you are. So with all that being said, this week’s currently craving item is graphic tees! (more…)
The Women’s Meridian Buckle Sandal is one of the hottest gladiator pumps from Payless. They have a whole slew of gladiator styles from flats to heels, but this pair from their Brash line are my favorite. They come in black and cognac and only cost $39.99, but they are on sale this week for $29.99! Get this trendy shoe for less while it lasts. Photo from Payless.
H&M has an affordable Birkenstock alternative for you to try this summer for only $24.95. This slip-on sandal has two imitation leather straps that criss-cross over the foot, what seems to be a cork foot base, and then a rubber sole. If you really want to try the Birkenstock look without the price, this shoe is it. This is the cheapest version I have seen this season. Check it out at H&M.
