Floral Dress Flashback (OOTD)

Guess who cleaned out and rearranged her closet? Me! And while I was in there, I ran across this floral number from 2011! Now, let me be clear. I don’t normally wear short dresses. It’s just a personal preference. I will rarely wear anything above the knee. But, hey…why not change things up with a flirty floral dress? Read more

A Night with L’Oreal Paris (OOTD)

Let’s be honest, awards season has been pretty good so far. But, we still have the SAG Awards and the Academy Awards to look forward to. Don’t you just love the anticipation of the red carpet? Who is wearing what designer? And what will their hair and makeup look like. This past week, I actually got the inside scoop to a few Golden Globes celebrity looks thanks to L’Oreal Paris. Read more

Basically Comfortable (OOTD)

When it comes to my personal style, I never put comfort on the back burner. I just can’t. No matter where I’m going, my outfit has to be comfortable. That’s just how it has to be. It’s something that took me a long time to learn, unfortunately. It comes with age I guess. And that’s perfectly fine with me. Being comfortable equals happiness. And I love being happy with my fashion choices.  Read more

Date Night (OOTD)

Seven years seems like a long time, but is it really? That’s how long I’ve been married. Yup, the hubby and I celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary on November 25th. First of all, I can believe he’s lasted with me that long! Ha! Actually, we’ve been together for 12 years, that must be a record? No? Anyways…I wanted to quickly share my date night look with you.

Day at the Ranch (OOTD)

I love days that are all about comfort. Yesterday was one of those days. I had a last minute change of plans and headed out of the city for a day with my hubby and our family. We were headed to “the ranch” for the day and I just wanted to relax with my loved ones. You know I had to make sure my outfit was comfortable.  Read more

Striped Just Right (OOTD)

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 a Black and White Kind of Mood (OOTD)

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

Personal Style at FFFWeek’s Indie Show (Photos)

I think this just might be my last post about Full Figured Fashion Week 2013. I’ve done quite a few! Well, since it’s probably the last (unless I come across more photos), I’d love to share some of the looks I saw on the night of the Indie Fashion Showcase. I’ve always been kind of a people watcher, and I can’t enough of other people’s personal style. This night I saw such an eclectic mix of fashion and it was awesome! Read more

California Love (OOTD)

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

“Perfect” Weekend with City Chic and Sonsi (OOTD)

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

Torrid Fall Fashion Preview NYC (Video/Outfit Post)

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

From Me to You…Thank You

The past couple of weeks have been so crazy. In fact, a little too crazy for my liking. I need to stop, take a deep breath before the crazy starts all over again. Until then, I wanted to take a minute to say Read more
