Holiday Style Inspiration | Part I

Are you struggling with outfit ideas this holiday season? Believe me, you’re not alone. It’s a constant and real struggle for me…as I blankly stare into my closet. So, as I was strolling through my Instagram feed this morning, I saw that some of the stylish ladies I follow were already rocking some amazing holiday looks. They offered up some much needed inspiration. That’s also when I got the bright idea to share them with you here. If you aren’t already following them…please do! Yes, all of the looks below contain velvet, sequins, or shimmer. Those are my holiday style…

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…

Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant | NYC Launch

Since day one, I’ve been a Christian Siriano fan. I knew he would do amazing things and design glamorous gowns. When I first heard he was collaborating exclusively with Lane Bryant, my heart kind of skipped a beat. High fashion was coming our way! With this limited edition collection, he has given us fall looks straight from the runway. And I was lucky enough to attend the launch party in New York City and snag an impromptu interview with the designer himself. Even though this was a whirlwind of a trip, I was really excited to be in the…

Anna Scholz | New York State of Mind Collection

If you’re an Anna Scholz fan, you know she’s all about her bold patterns and bright colors. That’s what I love most about her. She’s not afraid to dress the plus size woman in what is normally seen as taboo for our curves. Her latest capsule collection, New York State of Mind, is a perfect example of that. The collection launched yesterday and I am all about it. As you’ll see below, she used “The Big Apple” as the back drop for the photoshoot. What do you think? Are you a fan? You can find the latest Anna Scholz collection here.
