Yes, You Can Steal Belle’s Style

Just a little warning, the following sentences may sound like I’m bragging…which I’m actually OK with. Remember last week when I was at Walt Disney Studios as part of a field trip with We All Grow? I wasn’t allowed to say anything then, but the group I was with were THE FIRST outside of the actual studio to watch the new live-action Beauty and the Beast. Yes, even before the press or any other media! I’m not going to lie, that made me feel super special. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin the movie for you. There are no…

Carmakoma’s #DiversityisBeautiful with Fluvia Lacerda

Society is always and forever trying to saturate us with their unrealistic ideas of beauty. Always. It’s so uninspiring to constantly have those images thrown in our faces. That’s why I love when someone in the plus size industry shakes things up. It seems Danish fashion brand Carmakoma feels the same. They believe that “beauty comes in all forms.” That being said, they have launched their SS17 collection and campaign with the confidence-boosting message that “Diversity is beautiful.” Something I totally agree with. With our “Diversity is Beautiful” campaign, we want to widen the stereotypical female beauty ideal and take…

There are four 70’s-inspired styles I’m currently eyeing right now. You know I had to share them with you too. Isn’t that what friends are for?

My Body My Story | Lucy Activewear Giveaway (Closed)

This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and lucy #lucyForEveryBody blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own. When I was in my early 20’s, I would drag myself to the gym. I never wore anything form fitting and would cringe the minute someone good looking jumped on the treadmill next to me. I was so self-conscious about my appearance and would always beat myself up about gaining weight—which happened a lot. Today, I’m 39, and I give zero cares about anyone else’s fitness expectations. I am my own person. I do what I…

Style Trend | Velvet

It never fails. The fall season rolls around and I just want to wear sweaters, scarves, and velvet. Yes, I’m having a velvet moment. In fact, I ordered some pumps from Shopbop (SALE ALERT) but they were too small and my heart broke just a little bit. No worries. I know I’ll have plenty of other chances to buy myself a little something. When it comes to wearing this lush material, you don’t have to stick with just clothes. Although, that’s a super great option to have. You can spread your wings and venture out with some super hot accessories.…

Style Trend | Military Brass

Give me all of the buttons! I haven’t shared a style trend post with you guys in a while. I guess I wasn’t feeling too inspired. That was until I saw these military-inspired pieces. With a double row of buttons, this trend really gives off a vintage vibe. Maybe that’s why I like it so much. From blazers, to a dress, and outerwear—these selections are all on my wish list. Which piece do you like the most?  1. Torrid Zip Front Military Jacket 2. American Rag Trendy Plus Size Military Jacket 3. Eloquii Military Peplum Top 4. Eloquii Mock Neck Military…
