Gorgeous Sequins for New Years!

Christmas and New Years is the perfect time to wear glitter and shimmer and all things shiny! I love this time of year because everything is pretty and glittery. All the clothing stores have glitter in all shape, sizes and colors. I'm loving the look of a sequin shirt and a full tutu. Add a cute pair of pumps and you're ready for New Years.
   The sequins of this dress glimmer green, gold and in some light navy blue. I styled it with black and gold accessories so that the dress can stand out on the dance floor.  You can definitely add gold shoes and a different jacket and it would still look fabulous.
    I know Monif C plus sizes has this gorgeous romper in black sequins for people who don't like too much color. ASOS has dress that's just a skirt and a simple black top. Add flashy, glam jewelry and strapy heels and you're ready to get kissed at midnight.
    I love sequins and glitter. It's my favorite color!

Holiday shopping chic

Hello everyone! I hope everyone's holiday shopping has gone with ease, full of sales and coupons! With Christmas shopping comes the hassle of bags, jackets and over crowded stores. So why not look cute doing it?
    I've seen this outfit so many times on straight sized girls that I just added my plus size flare. I accessorized this look with rose gold jewelry to enhance the camel coat. With the turtle neck, add a long chained necklace instead of a shorter one to have an elongated neck/torso. Cute sneakers and a back pack will keep you hands free and mobile.
    If all white isn't your thing, swap it for all black and add a crazy colored jacket and it's just as cute. I actually have a baby blue jacket from old navy that I got ages ago. I love wearing is open with a chunky scarf and simple jeans. Maybe I'll make a blog post on it!

                                                 Happy Holidays!

Blouses Are a Girls Best Friend

I love wearing patterned shirts over simple trousers. It's something about it looking all grown up and sophisticated. The leather look pant adds such a great contrast to the soft blouse. I styled this oversized blouse so that you can tuck it in or leave it out.
  Since it's already the colder months, I suggest a  short boot. If you style this with a taller boot, a riding boot to be specific, you might look shortened or risk looking frumpy. No one wants that, trust me. I added silver jewelry to compliment the colors of the blouse. Same with the boots, maybe add a different colored bag. I think I over did the grey! I've been loving that over sized peacoat that has been floating around everyone lately, H&M had one but it's currently sold out. Swap the leather jacket for the over sized peacoat and you'll look expensive and fabulous!

Interning isn't all that bad

     I feel like internships have such a bad misconception. Yes it's free labor. Yes it's hard work and your broke at the end of the week, but when your exhausted at the end of night, you can soak your feet while you update your resume.      
    What I love most is that you can share with your friends all the cool stuff you saw that day.  You can share how a designer recognized your hard work, share how you saw a hot, semi naked model in full make up ask for lunch casually.  It's all an adventure that you can remember when you have a career, and a walk-in closet.
   long shoots/interning are hard to do when you have school, homework and a part time job. How else are you supposed to pay for your metro card, rent, and food? I know that's why everyone that wants to be in the fashion industry just wants to be handed a job. There's alot of hard work to do before you're even considered for a full time job. You have to make connections, go for coffee runs, pick up clothes from show rooms all while trying to hide how exhausted you really are.
       Now, on set you can in counter so many attitudes that you have to be on your toes. A nasty attitude from a make up artist, a hair dresser that thinks you're nothing but a intern, even an assistant that's higher then you bossing you around because you suggested something simple like an earring on a look. It's hard to be around people that know it all and you're new. In fashion there is always a person that thinks that they know more then you, and as an intern you just nod your head and understand that, that person might be under a lot of stress.
       I've personally learned from so many people. It's all about being open to learning and knowing that in the furture you'll have your own interns dotting around you and helping you be successful for your future. That's why I like to intern in all sorts of fields. My favorite is definitely being an intern for stylist. I think for my next job I want to look into public relations. Hey, you never know. It just might be my call after all.

70's Vibes

      Riding boots and oversized sweaters are the most comfy things to throw on during fall. You look all cuddly and everyone wants to hug you. I styled those two pieces with a simple shift dress, add a belt around your waist, and you have a put together look. Of course not everyone likes dresses as mush as I do during fall, so replace the dress with a colored v-neck and skinny fit corduroy pants ( I love the dark green ones!) and you'll look just as cute.
       I really liked the stripped dress, it gave off a 70's Brady Bunch vibe which I enjoy. I know 70's throw back is very "on trend" at the moment with every other reatiler. Instead of going the tacky route with a fringe vest, bell bottoms, paisley print blouse and platform shoes just modernize it!
    Take a couple pieces of that trend.  Don't jumble up all your eggs in one basket. Use some eggs for a later date. Use that fringe vest over a form fitting dress. Use that paisley print blouse with leather skinny fit trousers and chelsea boots.
    The possibilities are endless!

Faux Fantasy Fur

   I've been looking for a faux fantasy fur jacket in my size for ages, since I can't find one for a good price as well I'll just live bi-curiously through my blog. I styled it in a way that I would wear to an amazing event. Maybe a launch of some sort, possibly a fashion week in February?
(That's a clue someone take me to Fashion week!)  I love the accents of the lace on the sleeve and collar. You can throw on the jacket and pull the sleeves down to show off the lace.
      For shoes you can definitely changed them to some Jeffrey Campbell Litas! I love the look of litas with bad ass outfits. Especially the Spiked Lita.
       For Jewelry I think sticking with shiny silver accessories to bring out the black.
  Honestly I would wear this any day of the week. That's how adventures I am sometimes.
If anyone has any requests for any looks, shoot me tweet!

Pilgrim Chic

I've been really digging These old fashion tie shirts. It has such a pilgrim vibe, that I should've just added a felt wide brim hat. I know this shirt was really in last fall, but it seems to finally hit the plus size racks.
(since we're always last to enjoy the trends) This particular blouse is in a dusty pink color. I've seen them in black, white and even in a mustard color!
     Of course I included my staple leather jacket, swap it out for a blazer or a cardigan and you have an outfit ready for any occasion.  I went a little crazy with the shoes because I figured a simple outfit would look better with some crazy studded shoes. A rich dark brown lip stick or a brick burgundy lip would flatter this color scheme amazingly. It'll bring out the colors better.

Back to School!

It's back to school season already! (wasn't it June 2 weeks ago?) Varsity jackets and letterman jackets always remind me of chic college days, in which you can wear whatever you want without someone telling you about a dress code. Skirts bellow the knee? No tank tops? No crop tops? those days are over! You can walk into class looking like a hot mess or the hottest babe that graced the planet and know one will bat an eye. That's the great thing about college. All the students are under the same understanding, that yes we are all paying out the wooha for classes that we probably don't need, minus well look good doing it.
      I styled this cashmere sweater layered with a button up underneath to give a smart look. The look of "I'm living off 2 hours of sleep and 4 cups of coffee, but you will never know that" I switched my usual Dr.martens for cute booties for again that "adult" look. Of course you have to lug around with text books,a laptop, and note books. Get a super cute leather back pack. Norstrom has really cute (expensive) ones. I'm sure a faux leather one would do just fine. Tuition is way too high to buy a 445$ back pack . Good luck with classes this semester. Don't over work and remember it'll all pay off in the long run.
