With Spring already making a chilling appearance, Spring sales are already making their debuts. As much as I love following trends, I am an avid recycler of my beloved winter finds.

Two weeks ago, I posted three items that I scored for $60.00 at Eloquii! And when Natalie in the City showed me what she scored from the Eloquii sale, it was a no-brainer: Collab! When we compared the items we got, we saw that we had similar items…probably because we are each other’s spirit animal. So we thought we could highlight how to shift some of last season’s finds to the temperamental Spring season.

The dress I chose to go with was Eloquii’s Faux Bustier Wrap Dress. There’s an impressive duality to fitted dresses because you can pair it with a fit and flare skirt and use it as a top. 90% of the time, I always do this because I hate wearing shapewear lol. Although this is sold out, Eloquii never fails because their V-Neck off the ShoulderTweed Tie Neck Dress with Chiffon Sleeves, and Long Sleeve Off the Shoulder Twofer Top are  JUST AS FAB!  And instead of buying something supplemental, I decided to feature a past item and an item I didn’t get to show on the blog! My tried & true Dusk and Stunner Midi Skirt had to make another debut!  There’s something about this skirt that brings out leopard maniac in me. So a little layering with my Caitlin Animal Wool Look Coat virtually sealed the deal for me.

Lastly, a little bit of accessorizing never hurt! Octoly sent me this beautiful necklace from Stella & Dot! Although it’s a pretty penny, I am IN LOVE WITH IT! Like you will see it a few times…like next week lol. Paired with my favorite clutch and pumps from Amazon Fashion, I was totes ready for this weird Winter/Spring Day!

And check out Natalie’s look!! Isn’t she a babe? I need to incorporate more denim into my wardrobe! Check out her blog to get her deets!!

As both a blogger and working professional, a white button up shirt is a go-to staple in my closet because I can dress it up or dress it down for multiple occasions. Lately, I have been dressing my white button ups with a black bow tie or a sharp blazer, but I wanted to try a different take on this all- time favorite piece. This long sleeve off the shoulder twofer top from Eloquii caught my eye. The blouse got me excited about the off the shoulder trend—which is circling back this spring and summer—and the top also gave me a new way to energize the white button up look. I’m wearing a size 16, and I would recommend ordering a size larger than your usual fit as the top can run a bit tight. However, I can’t wait to pair this piece with leather skirts, more ripped denim, and a sleek pair of black dress pants. – Natalie in the City

These Prints won’t Mix Themselves

Plus Size Scuba Skirt

Today, we are closing in on the installment of Plus Size Beausion Print Mixing series–but don’t worry, I feel like such expert at mixing prints that it’ll be hard NOT TO post moRE daring combinations.


I am rounding out the series using items from my closet. Now, you may remember my post entitled, “That Uptown Sweet Funk“. In that post, I talked about how statement pieces can be re-purposed for different outfits. As a blogger, I have a habit of wearing something, then never wearing it again because it made such a statement the first time I wore it. Shop Sweet Mod’s April Shower’s Skirt  is one of those items that you can keep re-purposing–no matter how much of a statement it makes.

I paired Shop Sweet Mod’s April Showers Skirt with an off the shoulder top from Eloquii.  Although this shirt is sold out, they have an identical crop  that is just as beautiful! But hey, the Spring is nigh, so it’s not too late to take a stab at it!

A piece of me wanted to wear leopard shoes to finish the look, but I had to step back from that because I knew it would look tacky. Instead, I paired this look with my suede turquoise pumps from Amazon. They actually brought out the cerulean hues in the Shop Sweet Mod’s April Showers Skirt .

Accessorizing came pretty easy for me. My Daniel Wellington Classic Black Watch, with the cuff  to match, has become a PSB favorite! Don’t forget, use code BEAUSION15 to get 15% off your first order! And to make this dinner date friendly, my clutch from JD Williams coordinated with the watch so perfectly!

What do you think of the look? What are some ways you would style this skirt?

That Christian O’meshun Love

Posted in Body Positive, Personal Style
on February 13, 2017

Tomorrow is the holiday that I’ve grown to have a love/hate relationship with. While taking a stroll down memory lane, I could only remember ONE VALENTINE’S DAY worth recanting…and that was in 2011. Today’s post is all about my Galentine’s Day with my squad. We are taking plus size fashion to a new level ha!

I’ve always wanted to do a collaboration with my homegirls. A chance for us to look pretty and take pictures doesn’t come often. But when it does, we can only slay featuring the best! Enter: Christian O’meshun. Christian Omeshun was created for the sophisticated curvy woman who values modern fashion! If there is ever a brand that speaks to empowering women through entrepreneurship and style, they still don’t compare to Christian O’meshun.

Founded by fashion designer A’Shontay Hubbard, Christian O’meshun designs custom clothing for sizes 12-32! When I introduced this brand to my squad, they asked me, “What makes this brand so unique?” Aside from the perfect fit and the breathable fabric, the designer, A’shontay, embodies all things L-O-V-E.

Her drive for her brand is a love of passion. Her dedication to making clothing that goes up to a size 32 (especially with most brands catering to a size 22) is well founded with each customer photo she reposts. And time and time again, we are always asking for body diversity! Well if you go to her website, the models range from size 14-22+. Also, there is a type of clothing for everyone on her website. I am a modern day career woman. I love slacks and button ups, but occasionally, I like to test the waters with a little something form-fitting in the board room. The love that I have for my curves and the love that I have for my job are all summed up in this one look.

When talking to my girls about which pieces they were getting, I saw that there was a moment of empowerment happening. We each started to point out our strong points, For instance, Stavana  loves form-fitting clothing, and we knew she could kill any bodycon.We all told her she would look amazing in the Cold Shoulder Set.  Or that Bianca has a perfect chest…no for real; she can fill in any dress– so we knew she could kill the Iris Set.

With each affirmation, we saw how we empowered each other to look and feel our sexiest! Without doing too much, our Galentine’s Day was a success! We don’t need someone to call ‘bae’ for us to realize that we are loved–many times it’s just being around your friends that get us there. So a huge shout out to my squad! We roll deeper, curvy, and great!
