all white everything

allwht1

When wearing white I’m always on the alert, the last thing I need is a spill or a stain. Regardless, I love an all-white outfit! It’s fun, stylish, and chic. Let’s embrace this monochrome look all year round, it’s perfect for any occasion.

Some rules are meant to be broken. My plus size beauties, we can wear anything which includes all-white. Style is all about stepping out of your comfort zone. There is no secrete to wearing all-white, just some useful tips;

  • Try different textures. Various fabrics add style.
  • Add neutrals to finish your look like, nude, gold, or black.
  • Accessories are your best friend. They can make or break your outfit. A monochrome look is a great way to make your accessories stand out like, rocking a bag with a pop of color.

 Monochrome outfits are my favorite. I love to wear this style in all black, white, or grey. I highly recommend to try this all-white look. It’s a big summer trend. You can stay comfy in white jeans and cotton tee or an all-white blazer and trouser combo for a cool office look.

So break out the white clothing, dress up, and have fun!

“When life gives you curves, flaunt them.”- unknown. Who said a size 2 is the only beauty in the world? We are all beautiful no matter what size we are. Its up to us to believe so and be body positive.

Fashion is all about self expression. This is a fun way to show off your personality, feelings and ideas.

Why play it safe? Have fun with your style. Whatever shape or size you are, we can wear anything.  But very importantly feel comfortable. Nothing ruins your mood quickly then the discomfort of a blouse or skirt. Here are some pointers to dressing up your curvier figure;

  • Highlight your waist by wearing a wrap top or dress. They are adjustable to fit any size and comfortable.
  • A-line skirts are not only feminine and classic, they conceal a heavier bottom.
  • Don’t be afraid to show off a little skin. Wear a top with a lower neckline, it’s a subtle but sexy way to show a bit skin.

A simple yet chic trend for spring & summer is color blocking.  Which is when your outfit is composed of multiple solid colors. To create this look you first need to choose a color scheme and mix 2-4 colors. Normally color blocking is displayed with brighter hues. It can also be done with lighter hues and my favorite black!

Try out this hot trend and lets color!

I recently died my hair red. So, I wanted an outfit that would complement my new do. An all black outfit was perfect especially to this event, A Mad Hatter Tea Party. Ladies dressed in black, white, or purple, and of course a hat! I wanted to have fun with my hat, so I decided on a retro turban. With a black maxi skirt,  transparent top, and a statement necklace, I pulled out of my closet a fun and retro look. I love that the simplest items can turn a modern outfit into a vintage inspired look.

The weather has been odd in LA. One day I’m searching for my umbrella then the next it’s sunny and warm. Reminding me that spring is just around the corner. I can’t wait!

It was nice and sunny just the other day perfect to wear my new skirt from eShakti. I love that my new poplin skirt was made special for me.  It fits like a glove.

Don’t you hate when you buy something that doesn’t fit just right? eShakti is a fashion design company that makes custom clothing for sizes 0-36. They provide both custom size and custom style too! They had many beautiful and fashionable pieces to pick from. The customization was easy too! I loved my experience with eShakti.

snake skin & the ramones

I had fun putting this look together. I’m not sure what to call it. It’s a little rocker from the 70s. I look ready to rock out at a Ramones concert.

I’m all about finding great deals. One of the things I enjoy best is thrift shopping. Growing up my mother use to take me thrift shopping. I was always amazed at what she would find. It’s truly, one women’s trash is another women’s treasure.

I found this incredible skirt. I love the pattern. I wanted to focus my outfit around the skirt. As I played with my clothing I came across this fun cool look. Because leopard is a neutral color it mixes well with the skirts print. The red belt is eye catching and compliments the overall look. I finished the look with a fedora hat and booties.

tutu fun

I remember playing dress up as a little girl. A tutu made me feel like a little princess or a ballerina. The possibilities were endless.

Lets be honest, playing dress up never ends. Many years later the tutu has made it way back into my closet.

I kept it simple with an all black look.

This faux fur jacket from forever 21+ added a classic touch. I finished the look with a pop a red.

Try this new trend. You can keep it casual with a denim shirt for an unexpected pair. Or stay cozy this winter with a soft and fuzzy sweater. Have fun dressing up.
