Always remember that stripes are our friends. Wearing them (proudly) can be fun and not scary! These are the words I tell myself when I reach for something with stripes. And yes, I said it when I found this striped sheer top at JC Penney. I immediately fell in love and made it my own. Can you imagine the number of ways I can wear this? Read more
In an attempt to cool down this past weekend, I put together a last minute look. I found this reversible black and white maxi skirt at Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas. A great purchase if you ask me! Two skirts in one is always a bonus. One side is a tribal print and the other is floral. Read more
I love how my style is changing. I wear whatever I love and what I want, without feeling the pressure of following trends. I think that’s how it should be for everyone. Fashion should never be about wearing what others think you should. That’s why I love and appreciate my daring and creative fashionista friend Ivory (check out her blog here). She makes no excuses. She loves it, she wears it. And that’s what true style is about. Read more
I’m finally back home from my trip to Austin, Texas! I was there attending and speaking at the Texas Style Council Conference. I got in really late on Monday night…actually early Tuesday morning and was exhausted from a day of flying. I woke up and remembered I had a blog event to attend to. In a rush I got ready and this is the look I came up with. Read more
I will be the first to admit that I’ve been wearing a lot of black and white lately. I don’t know what it is. Sometimes, I just get in a fashion phase, where I want to wear the same color or styles. Eh…it happens. I was looking for a chic, but comfy look and this is what I came up with. Read more
No…I’m not a thug. And you’d might be surprised, I’ve never lived a thug life. I know…I know. Shocking! But, I am a fan of Tupac and totally believe he’s alive living on some island somewhere with Biggie. That’s just my opinion and yes—California Love is one of my favorite songs. Read more
There’s that moment, when you put on an article of clothing and it just feels like it was made for you. It’s one of those “perfect fit” experiences. What’s even better is when you don’t think it will look good on you, then when you’re wearing it all of that just goes away. Sonsi, your “go to” online plus size fashion shop, sent me a few items from their (awesome) City Chic boutique and it was all I needed to make my weekend. Read more
When it comes to style on a budget, no one knows better than Shauna of the blog Penny Chic! This chick is so amazingly sweet! A few months ago, she sent me two dresses from her Little Black Dress Collection. It’s a collaboration between Shauna and Walmart that offer women of all sizes five basic LBD’s. Here I am wearing “The Skater” at the FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase.

Happy Weekend loves! I’m trying get out of this NYC apartment for a night with a friend, but before I do I wanted to share this post with you. Yes, I’m still here in the Big Apple and loving it. Maybe it’s all the fabulousness and events. Like the other day, I was invited to the Torrid Fall Fashion Preview along with a group of bloggers. Read more

What do you wear to a baby shower? Yup…that’s the question I had last week, when I attended my sister-in-laws baby shower. I knew it was going to be a sunny and warm day. Then I remembered Thread & Butter sent me a few things to review. Read more
It’s no secret that I’m not really a Jr. Plus kind of customer. To be honest with you, I don’t even shop junior sizes because the fit is always too small or the styles are just too young. But, when Wet Seal contacted me to try out a few of their pieces I was really curious to check out their plus line. Read more
