From Desk to Dinner: The Ashley Stewart Edition

In Fashion, Plus Size Fashion

Presentation1

This week I was given the challenge by Ashley Stewart to style two outfits using their Signature by Ashley Stewart line.

The challenge was to style a fall outfit that will take you from desk to dinner in style!

Ashley Stewart allowed me to choose two pieces from their line. I chose Coco Brown blazer and the pants to match.

I never really wear browns or tans so this was a great challenge for me to hop right into fall as well as styling for work place.

Here were the pieces in which you can find on their website:

Tall Signature Pant & Signature Blazer

So here is my desk attire:

Blazer and Pant: Ashley Stewart Top: Talbots Shoes: Just Fab

Blazer and Pant: Ashley Stewart
Top: Talbots
Accessories: So Good Jewels

Then I thought to stay within the same color scheme but just touched it up with a little bit of tan :).

Boston Calling Weekend

In Fashion, Plus Size Fashion

I learned, when I look in the mirror and tell my story, that I should be myself and not peep whatever everybody is doing. -Kendrick Lamar

This weekend I went to Boston Calling. It’s an amazing concert filled with over 20 acts. I knew a lot of standing and squishing was in order so I made sure to be as comfortable as possible.

Kendrick Lamar was my headliner for the weekend and I must say, he came prepared to slay!

Here was the finished product and perfect fit to end the summer.

Jibri X Monif C (in my mind)

In Fashion, Plus Size Fashion

Two of my favorite plus size designers really stepped out big for Fall 2013.

A lot of their pieces introduce WHITE which I am excited for because the “no white after labor day” rule was thee worst rule invented.

I am first going to start off with the beauty that is MONIF C.

I love the powerful statements that each of her pieces make. They pieces don’t have to be too convoluted to look amazing!

Voluptuous First Friday Darty

While I was in New York this weekend, I attended a DARTY with two of my close friends.

I was really excited to attend this party because it was hosted by a group called V.F.F.

In short, VFF is a group where full figured men and women are celebrated, not tolerated. The head organizer Frandy Napoleon plans trips, BBQ’s, and lounge events every first Friday of the month.

If you are ever out in the Harlem area on the first of the month, make sure you come out and celebrate with some amazing people.

I was very unsure what to wear but I KNEW I had to wear my leather pants from Unapologetic LLC. These pants were very breathable and are true to size.

Here goes the ensemble:

My friends had a great time as well because it wasn’t a discriminatory atmosphere, it was an atmosphere full of love.

The H&M top is no longer in season but Asos has a few! They run two sizes big! So shopping in the regular size of the spectrum may be a viable option for you.

The wedges are no longer in season but a few private vendors are carrying them here.
