It’s about to get real classy up in here…make room for chiffon ladies. Chiffon is that material that was usually saved for special occassion dresses. Not anymore. I have seen this trend every where. And I really think any age or size can wear it in almost any color. There are so many different styles and it’s used different ways. Personally, I love when it’s used on the sleeves. Just so you know, I am literally lusting after #4 from Dorothy Perkins and if someone buys it before I do…I just might scream.
“Soiree” is French for “evening party.” A party in New York City? That’s sounds just about right for this next Full Figured Fashion Week event.
We want to invite you to come out and “join us for an “end of the work week” wind down. Mix, mingle, sip, and chat with in a social setting while continuing our monumental celebration of curves and fashion.”
Make sure you get your tickets! They are only $25 and can be purchased here. I heard they are selling out quickly. According to my countdown, there are only 22 days until FFFWeek!! Are you ready?

We’ve heard all about color blocking when it comes to your clothes, but how can we leave out our accessories? Shoes, jewelery, and handbags need color blocking love too! It’s always a great way to liven up any outfit. What do you think? Is color blocking with accessories for you?
If there’s one thing I love about all my fashionista friends it’s their individuality. Fashion to them isn’t just about getting dressed for the day, it’s about expressing who they are. Besides, long gone are the days of the old fashion faux pas. When was the last time you matched your shoes to your handbag?
Today, trends like mixing prints and color blocking prove that it’s OK to be fashionably different. Although, there are some trends I wouldn’t wear, I applaud those who have what it takes to pull it off. This makes my friends individually fashionable.
And if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know I’m slowly trying to come out of my fashion comfort zone. Baby steps! I can only do that with the friends I have. You know who you are! They continue to inspire me with their style and are honest with me when I need their opinion. This gives me the confidence I need to be a little more daring.
Keep it up gutsy fashionistas! You continue to inspire fashion lovers like me.
I was kind of worried about this color. I thought it was a dark green, but it turns out it’s a lot lighter than I thought if would be. It probably has to do with it’s shimmer and light glitter base. Actually, it reminds me of a parrot. LOL. Maybe it’s the whole island theme. Oh, and I made sure to coat my nails with China Glaze’s No Chip Top Coat. It does wonders.
The color really is growing on me. It’s such a fun way to add some color into my life, which I always need. OK, now I’m thinking it’s a sour apple kind of color? What do you think?
Disclosure: The nail polish was gifted by China Glaze. The above is my true and honest opinion.
I’m in the mood for color, as you can tell. First coral, now this lime green “Intense Sandal” by Two Lips. A statement shoe like this could really brighten up any outfit. Especially, an all white ensemble. I have decided I really need these in my closet. What do you think? Read more
If there’s one color that compliments any skin tone, I’d have to say it’s coral. This mix between pink and orange is definitely a year-round color. ASOS knows that it is too. This is one of my favorite colors to wear. Just look at all the pieces below. I will admit, I want them all. When don’t I? Fashion is so addicting! LOL
According to my Full Figured Fashion Week countdown, there are only 28 days left to nothing but fabulousness in New York City. Eeek! I can’t wait! Yes, that was an “eek” from me. I say stuff like that when I am extremely excited about fashion.
Zelner is the founder of Queen Grace and is also a full-figured stylist. According to her bio, she “believes that inspired, graceful, and elegant clothing should no longer be elusive to full-figured women.” Amen to that!

Make sure you hurry and buy your tickets before they sell out, because you don’t want to miss out on Queen Grace debuting at FFFWeek! Be one of the first to see this collection and all the other designers looks gracing the runway.

I own a pair of the Mimilita wedges and I can’t even express how amazingly comfortable they are. I swear on all things fashion, that when I put them on, I felt like I was walking on cushions.
