It’s been a busy two weeks! I got a little thrown off with my holiday fashion trends posts. When I was shopping for my Latin Grammy dress, I couldn’t help by be inspired by all of the stunning pieces out there are perfect for the season—especially the plus size velvet dresses!
I consider myself a denim kind of lady—wearing it all of the time. Truth is, I don’t wear dresses very often. But, when L’Oreal Paris invited me to attend the Latin Grammys in Las Vegas, I made sure to find one that added some much needed sparkle. I had a few outfits ideas in mind for the biggest night in Latin music. It was this look that made the cut!
This is my first holiday post and I’m so excited! Yes, I’m that person. You know this is my favorite time of the year. I’ve been snooping around online and I’ve spotted some holiday fashion trends. Five trends to be exact. And I’m going to share them with you over the next week. Let’s start it off with metallics.
I’m happy to report that it’s finally starting to feel like sweater weather around here. You don’t even know how happy that makes me. I’m a huge fan of chilly weather. I know you East Coasters probably think I’m crazy, but when you live in L.A. it’s not something you’re used to. This gloomy day helped me realize that it’s time to stock up on cozy sweaters.
Aren’t you sick and tired of people telling you what you shouldn’t wear as a plus-size woman? I know I am. There are a lot of fashion rules out there, but of course there are some that are specifically targeted to us. You may or may not follow them, and that’s up to you. Just so you know, I’m not following anyone’s fashion rules except my own.
Halloween is only a few days away! If you’re scrambling for last minute costume ideas, why not consider dressing up as Marilyn Monroe? I started thinking of glamorous Hollywood actresses and she immediately came to mind. Why wouldn’t she? She’s as iconic as they come! I found a really great makeup tutorial, that will help you create her trademark beauty look. And I even found a few pieces to help inspire an outfit from the 1950’s.
The fall season never disappoints when it comes to prints. Well, at least that’s my opinion. I’m not one to over do it, but I do have a special place in my heart for those who can rock the fiercest prints and even mix them. I was doing a little online shopping and came across seven fall prints that caught my attention.
If you live in Southern California and are a fan of the Australian plus size retailer City Chic, then you’re going to love this. They have finally opened their first U.S. store location in Los Angeles and they have more stores opening soon! I was invited to an exclusive in-store preview—before they opened to the public.
