A Curvy Holiday Series Part 3: Holiday Social Party


Today is the last installment of the Curvy Holiday Series. For today's look we decided to put together a look for a Holiday Social Party. I'm going to be honest...I'm not very social anymore like I used to be when I was single and ready to mingle so the majority of my Holiday parties are either work related or a family and friends type gathering. I don't do club looks per se because I don't go to clubs anymore. My Husband and I like to go and check out live bands and things of that nature when we step out so this was actually a look from last night's date night but I do think that it can be a look for a Holiday Social Party as well.

I paired my sequin blazer from last year with a plain black cami and a black peplum skirt I've had since last year. I don't think you can do anything wrong with sequins and "leather".Nothing about this look is new except the shoes that I purchased this Fall, so instead of running out to buy Holiday attire take a look in your closet and you might be surprised to see what you can find that you already own to create looks with.

Fab Find Of The Day - One Shoulder Peplum Top


Hi guys,

I know I haven't been posting as often but I'm still settling into my new home and honestly Home Decor has been taking over my shopping addiction. I have been glancing at things here and there and I thought I'd share this beautiful on shoulder peplum top I found over on Asos with you guys. It's no secret that I'm a peplum lover. I won't be getting this one but I sure hope one of you do!!!!

If you are still looking for party looks for Christmas or New Year's I think this would definitely fit the bill.






Until Next Time,

A Curvy Holiday Series Part 2: Family and Friends

Today I'm back with part 2 of the Curvy Holiday LookBook series.Today we put together a look appropriate for hanging out with family and friends.  Usually when visiting family I try to wear something that is a mixture of comfortable, stylish, and functional. Lately, I've been rocking cardigans and infinity scarves heavy, especially with boyfriend jeans.  I love the longer length cardigans because they hide my butt (I mean who wants the donk on display around the in-laws loll) and they are also warm and cozy. The great thing about cardigans for me is they go from the office to casual outings with ease.

The plaid infinity scarf does double duty adding another layer of chic to a casual look and also camouflaging the tummy when you are done stuffing yourself to capacity (it also garners tons of compliments when I wear it out and about). I'm not a flats girl so even to family gatherings I'm in heels but I prefer a mid-height comfier heel for those occasions not my tall stilettos. Actually since the platform heel trend is dying, I am much more into mid height heels these days. I refuse to throw my platforms away tho because we all know with fashion everything always comes back full circle and they will be patiently awaiting their return.

Early Christmas- A New Home

I told you guys that I would be letting you in on more of my personal life outside of fashion. It's ironic that I share my style weekly, but sharing anything personal via social media kind of creeps me out. What most people don't know about me is I'm social but I'm also anti-social in a way. I know of  lots of people and lots of people know of me, but I'm not a person that is quick to make friends or generally divulge anything uber personal via social media or in person.I think because writing is my first love I prefer to journal private moments and not use social media as a literal online journal of things that I think should remain private (we all know those tmi people that overshare wayyyy too much)  I am trying to change that and let my readers see a little bit more of me and my life outside of my fashion choices. 

This is one of the first posts of it's kind on my blog and it's totally out of my element, but if you follow me on IG you guys saw that my Husband and I became Homeowners today. We had a 5 year plan of things we wanted to accomplish and we accomplished all of those things but Home ownership was at the very top of the list so it was the goal that I was most proud of reaching today. We are now revising our new 5 year plan and looking forward to accomplishing more of our goals in the future. 

This is the home we just bought and a few candids of my Husband and I after we closed on it. As most if you know we don't have kids yet and we only have a small dog so it's more than enough space for us three  I hope you guys enjoyed this personal moment from my life and I hope to share more with you in the future. 

Do you make a 5 year plan?
Do you actively work towards those goals?

A Curvy Holiday Series: Part One: Office Holiday Party

Hi guys,

I teamed up with some fellow curvy bloggers and we are doing some Holiday looks this Month for you guys. Today we decided to do an office holiday party look. At some of my older employer Holiday parties, we had the kind of parties where you could literally dress to the nines....sequins, glitter, and all. But now, for our Holiday parties at my present place of employment,  it's more suitable to dress business-like with a little bit of the Holiday season flair.

I decided to do a tuxedo blazer, black cami, and a "leather" skirt. The skirt while edgy is still an appropriate length for the office. I rocked basic black pumps and a sequin bag for that little something extra. If it were truly cold in my city, tights would have been appropriate but it was in the 70's when I took these blog photos.

 Backstory on this skirt: Honestly, when I first got this skirt I hated everything about it. The material was thin and looked "costumey" to me and it's noisy. I have other "leather" skirts that don't look quite as cheap as this one did to me. I refused to send it back because I would have to pay the return shipping costs so I kept it and what do you know it went perfect with this look. I say that to say this......if I had to buy it again I wouldn't just being honest so buy at your own discretion. I wrote a bad review for it but apparently Ashley Stewart didn't want their readers to see mine and several other bad reviews left on this item because the reviews have since disappeared. Don't say I didn't warn you!!!

Shades of Grey: The Faux Fur

Between packing for an upcoming move and avoiding the unusual cold weather we had for awhile,  I haven't been really motivated to take blog pics lately but when our temps got back to normal this weekend I decided to come out of hibernation. Sometimes bloggers just have to take a step back and take a break....and going into the New Year I will be less focused on sticking to a certain schedule and learn to take time off from blogging when I feel that it is necessary. It can be very time consuming especially when you are balancing a career, a marriage, and life in general.  I don't talk a lot about my personal life on any social media platforms but for those of you who faithfully read my blog and take the time to comment I am going to try to let you guys get to know more of me.

On to my look, I have really been falling in love with the color gray this Fall. In the past I always liked it but didn't buy much of it. As my style continues to evolve, I have been buying more functional basics and I just happened this day to pair this gray faux fur vest with my gray pencil skirt that is one of my workweek basics. To break up the gray I wore a basic 3/4 sleeve black top and paired it with basic black pumps and my favorite everyday black bag.

Holiday Glam: One Dress Two Ways



I know a lot of you are looking for fab Holiday attire and right now I'm in the midst of moving so shooting OOTDS is kind of tough so I decided to find looks and put them together for you to give you some inspiration. I found a super cute sequin dress for you guys that comes in red and black and I love that it's not the almost typical bodycon look...it's a sheath dress. I think sheath dresses are classier and more versatile then the bodycon dresses.

For this look I created two looks with a red sequin dress. I only have the link to a similar dress but hopefully you guys can find similar accessories that are inspired by these sets.


This dress is from Ashley Stewart and also comes in black
