It’s true, I don’t work in an office. I sadly work from home. Yes, I kind of wish I had an office to go every day. Don’t judge me. There’s just something about it that I love. It just might be the idea of wearing career wear! If I did have to dress “professionally” I’d definitely do it with a little twist. Of course I’d have my basics, but there are a few ways I’d liven up my office wardrobe.

Fashion does not have to be frustrating. That’s my new motto. In fact, I’m doing all I can to make things easier on me, my lifestyle, and my wallet. One of the ways I’m doing that is by outfitting my wardrobe with clothing that can be styled many different ways. And there’s no other piece of clothing more versatile than the little black dress. That’s why I call it the perfect canvas.
I’m just going to go ahead and say it. Sometimes, I get bored with my outfits. I know I already have a very casual style, but sometimes I feel the need to spice things up. OK, I’m not talking about getting crazy here. I just want to liven up my look every now and then.
Have I ever told you how much I love thrifting? I really do! I grew up shopping thrift stores. My mom even worked at one. She used to bring home the greatest stuff. I guess you can say it’s in my blood. It’s just unfortunate that most stores make finding plus sizes really hard. I had almost given up hope, until I visited Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas!
It’s no secret that I adore fashion stylist & plus fashion expert Reah Norman! Not only is she my good friend, but she’s also very talented! I think she’s one of the best in the business. I’ve know her for years and no one can match her hard work and dedication. If you want to learn more about her, read the 5 Questions post where I featured Reah.
What’s your passion in life? Is it something that you actually get to do every day? Or do you only dream about it at this point? The truth is, only a small percentage of us actually follow our passion. Why is that? Have you ever asked yourself why it’s so hard for us to take action and go after what we love?

I don’t know if you guys know or not, but my dream has always been to write. When I was in college, I imagined myself traveling the world as a journalist. Today, I not only love to write on my blog, but I’m also a freelancer (available for hire by the way). And one of the places you’ll find me is over on Babble.com, writing about beauty and style topics (this includes plus sizes) in their Latina section.
Are you ready for some glamorous dresses? I can’t hear you! OK…seriously I can’t hear because this is a blog, but I can imagine that you’re saying yes! Well, we all know about my love for Tadashi Shoji. His gowns and cocktail dresses are stunning. And when they sent me the Fall/Holiday 2013 Lookbook, you know I had to share it with you.
I may have mentioned this on my blog before, but spent a few years living in Germany. It was amazing. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved the fashion and shopping there. I envied the dark, chic, and polished style a lot of the women had over there. Carmakoma is the perfect example of the that. Just take a look for yourself. I was sent a sneak peek look into their Autumn/Winter 2013 Lookbook!
It seems like the photos from my NYC visit will never stop. I apparently took over 900 photos while I was there! That’s a lot to share with you. So, as long as I have them, I’ll share them here. A few of those photos are from the Evans Fall/Winter Preview. I was lucky enough to get an invite and check out what’s to come from the UK retailer!
