Real Women Denim

In Uncategorized

As I am searching through JUSTFAB , I stumbled upon this ad:

I was so excited! More denim options for the curvy woman! I usually get all my shoes and handbags from Just Fab but now I get to branch out to the denim as well?

Some tidbits about their denim:

If you go to their website, they have detailed measurements and descriptions about each type of denim they carry as well.  Also, there is no section divider that says “Plus Size”, all their denim jeans go up to a size 22 USA!

Although this may not be a big deal to you, but to me it’s a very beautiful thing when you feel that you are “more than just a section of a department store.” I like the fact that JustFab recognizes ALL SIZES as being real women and not a blatant delineation between the sizes.

Here are a few of my favorite denim styles:1 2 3 4 5

If not, Posh Shoppe is an exclusively plus size online fashion boutique. Offering sizes: 1X, 2X, 3X; XL, XXL, XXXL.  They have AMAZING prices and shipping literally takes 3 days from the day you place your order. They have so much variety on their website that I am usually on their site at least three times a week.

As I promised, I had to covet something from the flower goddesses and not better dress (that went perfectly with the weather might I add) went better than the Mirrored Floral Print dress from Posh Shoppe.

I feel in love with Posh Shoppe when Nadia Aboulhosn posted about her fabulous body con dress she got there. Ever since, I’ve been hooked. I’ve seen this dress in so many boutiques but I didn’t find it anywhere for this price!

Come on, you can’t deny the color on this!!! The colors truly scream “bring on the heat”, in my eyes at least. Pairing it with some blue pumps from Just Fab and I was literally ready to hit the night on the town.

This dress truly sticks to your curves, so if you are looking for GREAT shape wear (in which I used) I would try Elsa Curves.  I will posting about the shape wear that I use soon.

Well I hope you liked my floral frenzy and with the Summer coming up, I know there will be so many more styles to choose from in the floral category. So until then,

Forever 21 is always my go to for any theme. Whether it is an all white party or a party at bikini bottom, you’ll always find what you are looking for.

SPECIAL ADDITION:  Youtheary Khmer

This new collection pretty much speaks for itself. We are not talking about just floral mixes but laced floral. What really makes this collection stick out from other laced floral patterns in the past is the colors! These crops and skirts really scream SPRING TIME! Make sure you check out the other items in the collection to pair up with these floral pieces.

3. Simply Be

There’s so much versatility in all of Simply Be’s floral pieces. From jackets to bathing suits, I guarantee you’ll find something you like. Just make sure when ordering from here you order early if you’d like your arrival for something in the near future.

4. Fashion to Figure

If you are anything like me, you have to admire the Fashion to Figure. Compared to most boutiques, they have almost everything you need down to shape wear! Here are some of my favorite floral picks:

5. Torrid

Torrid was one of the first in-store and online retailer that I ever heard of. Me and my mother would go to Torrid faithfully because they catered to our every curve. Check out their floral frenzy!

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. –Coco Chanel

Life (today at least) couldn’t be more sweet! The weather is finally turning up and now I can start transitioning some of my clothes into winter-ish-spring-ish flavor (yes, that’s all one word). I decided to spruce things up a bit by putting down the dresses and skirts and breaking into my loose-fitting clothing.

I tapped into my inner THUG (disclaimer, I am the biggest scaredy that has ever shown its face to the Earth) and rocked it the way I knew best! Most of my friends know me for huge tops and tight bottoms but this time around, I said “nah, you’ll dope no matter what!”

Can you see the sun glistening on me? Mother nature seems to got “a thing for the kid” too because this outfit was perfect for Boston’s 70 degree weather. I kept it rugged and just a little disheveled because it’s an accurate reflection of my life. I love dressing up but when I get a chance to wear leggings or sweats, I AM KNOWN TO ABUSE IT! 

Lastly, the wigs have been fun. I started experimenting with them early this month and I don’t regret them one bit. But, it’s time for me to go back into my natural state. One of my followers on Instagram said “Why don’t you wear your natural hair out? It looks so much better that way.” I COULDN’T AGREE MORE ROSY!
