Sequins n’ Such

In Personal Style

While Boston is turning up for Red Sox and social media continues to have this insatiable thirst for the life of Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick, I’m taking advantage of every warm day that I can get. Usually this would entail some shorts or a cardigan and tank top, but I never think, “How can you make this a classy look?” It’s rare to catch me in a dressy outfit when it’s 70 degrees in March. I always go for the overkill because I’m in such a rush to feel the sun on my arms. -insert classy clothes here- I didn’t really get to work any sequins this winter because I didn’t know how to pair it.

One lazy Sunday, I decided to binge on 2008 series of 90210–yea I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who watches it but there’s some method to my madness,  and I saw Naomi Clark wearing this beautiful peplum top and maxi sequin dress. I wish there were clear photos of this but I couldn’t really find it. As soon I saw her with the outfit, I knew exactly how I could duplicate this look.

I bought a peplum top from Eloquii in January but didn’t find time to wear it. Although they do not carry it anymore, there are about 10 similar,tops in their store RIGHT NOW! And though it took a weekend of watching 90210 for me to become inspired, I found the maxi skirt at Lane Bryant! It’s now on sale!

Spring Time feat. Kohl’s

In Personal Style
Can you believe it? Spring is almost here! Even though New England didn’t receive the memo yet, that’s not stopping me from seizing the sporadic days of great weather. Recapping over the spring and summer trends of 2016, I noticed there were lots of denim pieces, shades of blue and bold prints. Since I had already tried out Kohl’s fitness selection earlier this year, I wanted to see what their style options were all about. I teamed up with Kohl’s to bring you two looks that combine a few of the 2016 spring trends.
The first look I wanted to highlight was a denim look.  As I was looking throughout the store, I noticed a few pictures of Jennifer Lopez wearing a pair of white pants. I fell in love with them, so I was praying that I could find them in a size 20. Literally three seconds later, I found them! The Jennifer Lopez Cuffed Jean Capri!
Denim tops are  timeless so when I found this one by SONOMA Good Life, I knew it would be easy to pair. To keep up with the shades of blue trend, my blouse from Apt. 9 Essentials truly gave the outfit a nice finish. While I was looking for a bold print, I came across this bag by Apt. 9 and immediately I knew it would work with the my outfit.  Who knew I would be able to combine denim, shades of blue and bold prints all in one outfit? This outfit really looks nice for a casual day Friday at work or a nice date look.

Since I loved the pants so much, I was determined to find another way to style them.  I found this beautiful top from the Jennifer Lopez Collection. I didn’t need to accessorize much because the top pretty much made the outfit. This top can be worn with long linen pants, a pencil skirt, or whatever your heart desires. It’s pretty versatile.

Wedding Flow

In Personal Style

In two weeks, I will be going to one of my closest friend’s wedding.  At first, I was filled with so much excitement. I mean, why I wouldn’t want to see Mrs. Naomi Lane walk down the aisle!?! But then it hit me, I have to wear a wedding attire. Too many times I’ve worn the most uncomfortable wedding dresses known to humanity. Having to wear a tight girdle for 5 hours+ and attempting to eat and dance is torture!

Luckily, GCG me Designs understands the burden of having to wear an uncomfortable dress to a wedding.  Last week, I wrote about GCG me’s Miranda Maxi Dress. I got so much positive feedback; I knew I had to get my wedding attire from there as well.  I wanted to wear something that would only require a simple bra and boy shorts (I wasn’t kidding about being comfortable ha). Nothing screams comfortable like an elegant plus size maxi dress!

There were so many options to choose from, so I consulted Kavah from the Gentlemen’s Curb. At times, I have no clue as to how something will look on me and Kavah has an eye for what looks best on curves lol!  So what do you think? Did he pick a winner? I think he did!! Also, a big shout out to mother nature for providing the wind! It really allowed the dress to show off it’s beauty!  So who knows, I might end meeting the future Mr. Chanel-Faiteau in this dress  (or maybe this blue dress got me feelin’ like Cinderella, when in fact I will be going to a bar in Jersey lol)

Sweaters and Tulle

In Personal Style

Just as I thought that summer was truly on the horizon, New England gets slapped with a series of snowstorms. But of course after the snow storms, there are a series of chilly days to follow. Fortunately, I have a plan for those days. I received this sweater from the Lookbook Store and my first thoughts were, “I can pair this with some jeans and some boots!” I usually hate my first thoughts because it’s always the most conventional, ha! So I decided to take a less traditional route and pair the sweater with a tulle skirt. I know I know, I love tulle! It’s a guilty indulgence of mine. Not many plus size brands are featuring them, but I still love ’em.

Since Lookbook’s Cream One-Shoulder Sweater was meant to be worn as looser fit, I decided to lift up the shoulder and wear it like a regular crew neck sweater(yea, I am breaking all the rules today). Seeing that both the skirt and sweater were more “essential” items to the outfit, all I had to do was accessorize. Adding a hint of print and some gold accents, it made for the perfect date outfit. -side note, I’m not too sure why I keep making date outfits. I don’t even go on them lol.-  Here’s the finished piece.

Celebrating with Society+

In Personal Style

We all have that outfit that makes us feel festive. Whether it’s your sequins dress or your freak’um dress, it always puts us in a good mood. I think it’s time that I share mine. Society+ recently released their Jessica Kane Birthday Collection  and it’s truly a collection that introduces Spring in a funky-fresh light!  Society + is one of the brands that has a huge focus on body diversity and style diversity in style!  When most plus size stores stop at 22-24, Society+ goes up to 32! If you go to their website, you can tell by the different models and bloggers who model their outfits. With different metallics and bright-colored bandeaus, there are quite a few cute options from the Jessica Kane Birthday Collection. But of all the outfits that I saw in the store, this one caught my eye the most! I am wearing a size 20/22 in their Society+ Perfect T and a size 18/20 is the Jessica Kane Silver/Gold Pleated Skirt! What do you think? Which outfits would you style?
