A Weekend of Bliss

Happy Tuesday!

Before I continue with this post, please take a look this week’s “Outfit of the Week.” I chose a style that I will be featuring on the blog next week! Want to get a head start on the look? Click here.

So about two weekends again, I took another weekend trip to NYC for an eventful weekend. I didn’t get to blog/post everything that I wanted BUT I did get to snap a few pictures from my trip.

 

Plus is Equal 

I attended Lane Bryant’s launch for their Plus is Equal campaign, in Times Square. With many headliners and the movers and shakers of the plus industry in attendance, we brought attention to the public letting them know that plus size women are equal to straight size women. Also, we wanted to demand that we see more representation of plus size women in different industries!

Here are some pictures from the event:

Essence Style Block Party

This is, by far, the dopest block party I’ve been to in YEARS!

Huffington Post says, ESSENCE, a media company dedicated to celebrating African-American women, hosted its 2nd annual Essence Street Style Block Party during New York Fashion Week. Fashion, food, and fun sums up the successful event. Event partners Chevrolet, SheaMoisture, and The Home Depot complimented guests with free items and prizes. Attendees especially enjoyed SheaMoisture’s beauty lounge which provided mini massages, skin care consultation, and hair styling.

Here’s some of my favorite looks:

Happy Tuesday!

Yes, we are almost there but this morning I woke up with a froggy voice and started coughing! That only means one thing, FALL IS REARING IT’S BEAUTIFUL BUTT! Now I know this season can be stressful for women who have big calves (raises hands proudly to 18 inch calves), but it shouldn’t have to be. Just know, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR….sometimes :p. Now just like last year’s post, make sure you measure your calves before ordering. You want to make sure that you aren’t bunching up at the top or stopping any blood circulation in your legs.

Lane Bryant 

Lane Bryant was one of the first places I got my cute boots. I used to watch my sister walk into whatever store she wanted while I wear reinforced stalkings. Here are some of my favorite LB picks! FYI, pay attention to the caption on the boot, I will let you know if they have extended calf sizes!

Avenue

Avenue is the first place I ever bought boots from with my mom! Growing up I never liked them because what 13 year old wants to get her boots from the same place as their mom. But now, I am all about Avenue!!

Eloquii

That fact the Eloquii just opened up their shoe department with WIDER THAN EXPECTED calf sizes makes me think about all the days I won’t need to eat…JUST TO GET NEW BOOTS!!

Simply Be 

Simply has a section called EEE Fit Extra Curvy Plus, this is supposed to be wider than the wide calf sizes. I haven’t tried them yet but I am pretty anxious to do so!

Based off of reviews, one customer has a size 22 calf and she said it still had extra room!!

Ted & Muffy

I found about Ted & Muffy this morning on Instagram and looked it up immediately. Upon entering the boots section, I saw they also had a chart that teaches you how to measure your calves.  Remember what I said in the beginning, you get what you pay for. So make sure you check out what the boots are made of and calf sizes.

and to round off my top picks, Torrid.

I love Torrid when it comes to boots, but it’s a little hard when you aren’t someone who’s calf sizes aren’t proportional to their chart. But, take a look!

 

If you are a size 11-13, Torrid's boots go up to a size 21 inches on the calf.

Happy Thursday! (Told y’all I would be back)

For the past few months, I’ve been super MIA. I had great intentions to post at least once a week but if I told you the type of summer I had, it would take an extra season for me to explain it. But, I did want to shed light on my top 20 LOOKS from this past summer! Even if the items are sold out, please check out some of the items they have now! These items may even be on sale!! (HMMMMM SOUNDS LIKE A POSSIBLE CLOSET SALE IS COMING IN THE NEAR FUTURE)

Anyways, check out my top looks from the summer. Just a FYI, these aren’t the best quality pictures because I took them while I was on the go but STILL, hope you enjoy them!
