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.
Since Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the 2014 Color of the Year, this dazzling shade of purple has been blossoming everywhere with radiant orchid makeup looks. With undertones of fuchsia, purple, and pink Radiant Orchid is a must have tone for your makeup collection this spring! (more…)
Most plus size women are afraid to wear shorts because of how their legs and/or thighs may look in them (don’t worry, I’ll add in a few shorts that aren’t so short). However, with the spring season in full effect and summer not too far behind, it’s time to get over your fear of shorts; if not be prepared to die from a heatstroke! (Just kidding!)

This week’s currently craving item, really isn’t an item, it’s a trend; sporty spice. No, not sporty spice from the Spice Girls. The fashion trend that hit the runway during fashion week. In his [second] show for Balenciaga, Alexander Wang showed us just how to wear this fashion trend. The model in this image is wearing a structured crop top with a tennis skort. However, there are many ways to sport this trend! The thing that makes this trend unique is the fact that there are several different trends within it. For instance, you have:
To achieve the sporty mesh look, you can layer a camisoles or a bandeau underneath the netted fabric. You can also pair this look with leather shorts or a pair of track pants.
The bomber jacket is perfect for cool nights in the spring, this lightweight, sporty jacket can be paired with a pair of cigarette length pants, better known as slim length, a pair of basketball shorts, not the baggy pair of shorts, the old school Magic Johnson/Larry Bird shorts.
Embellished bomber jacket:
If you’d like to take your bomber jacket to the next level, embellish it!
Have you ever worn track pants with a pair of heels? Don’t think it could be done? Think again! When it comes to the sporty spice trend, almost everything is acceptable! You can pair a pair of track pants with a crop top, and a pair of heels and be on your way!
You would never believe which fashion trend has made a comeback! Hint: the title of the article is a dead give-away. Overalls are slowly making their way back into some of our closets, some since summer of 2012. Thanks to celebrities like Rihanna, who decided to shoot her ‘You Da One’ music video wearing overalls back in December 2011. Since then, more designers and retailers are trying to keep the “back in the day” trend alive. (more…)
You read that right. Ugly shoe are making a comeback in stores and are marching their way right back into many of our wardrobes. The ugly shoe trend encompasses a sort of perfectly imperfect style that is slowly creeping into the fashion world. I first noticed in the summer of 2013 how the new and fashionable chunky heels were selling quickly in all of my favorite shoe stores. (more…)
This week’s currently craving item are plus size crop tops! Crop tops are a trend that all plus size women should at least try. I am thinking of purchasing one myself just to see how I feel in it before I purchase more than one. With the rise of plus size designers, there are a lot of options for us, however, they sell out of the items fast! Below, I will list a few designers as well as retailers that carry crop tops for us plus size women.
Before purchasing, please keep in mind:
- If you aren’t comfortable showing your stomach, you can always layer it with a[n] [open] cardigan, blazer/jacket; so that only a bit of skin is showing.
There are many other sites that have crop tops, some aren’t available as of right now, but if you come across some that are, please comment the website/store name below! We want to know where you are buying your plus size crop tops this season! Photos from the retailers mentioned above.
Spring time is here & Forever21+ has you covered with the latest spring fashions! Forever21+ is doing an amazing job with their plus size spring collection, I saw a couple, well more than a couple, dresses I would love to purchase if I didn’t have legs for days.
These Forever21+ dresses are very cute, fashionable, but most importantly, reasonably priced! We’ll start from the top left and work our way to the bottom right!
