Hi Fashion Lovers,

A couple of weekends ago, the Hubby and I went to see the Standing Ovation Comedy Tour. I got to see Sommore, Bill Bellamy, Tony Rock, Gary Owens, and a few others. AMAZING show..if it comes to your city please check it out. If you follow me on IG @Style4Curves then you have already seen the picstitch I made from the actual show.

Since this date was like part 2 of our anniversary celebration, I decided to rock a bodycon dress. I don't normally wear them as much as I used to because honestly I was tired of seeing them everywhere and on everybody for EVERY event. I actually bought this one for Valentine's Day but went with a red dress instead so I was glad to finally get a chance to wear it. I am bad about hoarding things in my closet only to wear my old "new" item 6 months or more after I purchase it. *le sigh* It is a bad practice but I never have a shortage of options when I am in a crunch to have a surprise event come up and need something nice to wear.

I love the sleeves on this dress because it's 3/4 length but since we were headed out, I took pics in the black blazer I threw on because I knew it would be chilly in the coliseum that the show was held in. I paired it with my ancient quilted black clutch...and my new cobalt Steve Maddens that were one of my gifts for our anniversary. I loved the way this look came out......it was bold and classy with a hint of sexy.

The wind was blowing like crazy this day too so forgive my hair flying all over the place.

Dots and a Blue Bag


Have you ever took some photos and totally forgot they were in your vault? That's what happened to these....I took these a few weeks ago and totally forgot to share them. I decided to go ahead and share them before they got super old because long sleeve weather won't be around for too much longer in my city. 

Some days you just want to throw on something no fuss. On this day I wanted to wear something something flowy and comfy but stylish so I opted for a sheer polka dot tunic (that I wear at least twice a week to work because I love it so much), some basic black leggings, and my go to black pump. To spruce it up I wore my newest fave...my big blue handbag. I've been looking for a blue bag for the longest so I was elated that I found this one. I know I will get tons of wear out of it. I can see myself pairing this bag with tons of things so I'm warning you now you WILL get sick of seeing me wear it. Black, White, and Cobalt is so simple but it just works.

Spring Leather

Hi Fashion Lovers,

This Spring is so bipolar some days it's 70 degrees, then on others it feels more like Winter. On this day it was very cool so I decided to try my hand at leather for the Spring. I paired these leatherette panel joggers with a leatherette vest and a clean white button down. Nothing looks cleaner and fresher than a white button down. I am so glad I spent the majority of this Fall buying more basics because separates come in so handy when piecing together looks like this one. I have worn both the top and the vest on the blog before which is why I keep stressing....re-wear your items.

To make my look more Spring-like I wore my new fave pink lippie, some pink pumps, and my colorful tribal print clutch I've had for years. It's still my favorite clutch.

The next time you are looking for something simple but stylish pair black leather with white and a pop of color.

Yellow Leopard: One Year Anniversary Dinner Look

Hey fashion lovers,

I am elated because on March 22nd my Husband and I celebrated one year of marriage. We have been together for over 4 years but to make that first milestone as a married couple felt amazing. We celebrated by having dinner at our favorite restaurant Ruth's Chris. If you follow me on Instagram (@Style4Curves), you probably have seen the photos of my Husband and I headed out and also what we dined on.

I decided to go with a leopard print peplum top because nothing makes me feel sexier than wearing leopard. What I loved about this top is the unique yellow and leopard print combo. It's hard for me to find yellow period so to find this peplum top in yellow and leopard print seemed like a gift from the fashion Gods. I
also like that this peplum has just enough flare but it's not overly flared out like some peplums that I own. I paired it with a simple black pencil skirt and my black Sam Edelman heels that I also own in leopard.

For my makeup look I went with a smokey eye and nude lip. Since my top was so bold I wanted my makeup to be a little more subtle so I opted out of a bold lip color this night.

Stylenote: If you are worried about your arms being too big to wear out nix that. It's ok to want to change things and be in the gym actively working on it but until my arms get back where I would like for them to be, I refuse to never wear them out. Summer is coming and it's gonna be hot..I may not have perfect arms but they are perfect for the people that mean the most to me :)

Just Me and My Boyfriend

In an effort to diversify my jeans collection, I decided to try out some boyfriend jeans. On this day it was sunny but cool. I kept my look relaxed with a pink oversized blazer, black cami, and a fun polka dot scarf that screams Spring to me. Nothing says Spring like the color pink to me because that's my favorite color.

I love these jeans so much now I'm on the hunt for a dark wash pair of boyfriend jeans.

She can wear any color of the rainbow on her gorgeous skin-tone and perfect figure. I was so anxious to see what she was going to wear to the Oscars.....



and when she stepped out in this gown I was in awe!!!! But as beautiful as this gown was the other thing that stood out about this gown was the headband.

Spring Green


There is just something I love about Kelly Green. It can be paired with everything from pink, to stripes, to leopard print. My favorite pairing is with leopard print but this stripes and kelly green combo is giving my fave combination a run for it's money.

This top is a tunic length so I tied the front so it can showcase my figure a little better. I shopped my closet for this skirt that was last seen on the blog here and also here. I told you guys shopping your closet to make new looks is imperative in getting the most use of your wardrobe.
