{Plus Size News} Introducing AVA & VIV From Target

Hey Fabs!



{update} I have taken a look at the lookbook and posted some additional thoughts below.


As I mentioned in my piece about the Lilly Pulitzer collaboration three bloggers Gabi, Nicollete and Chastity were working with target on something new for plus sizes and the news was finally released.

Introducing AVA & VIV, the new in-house plus size line from Target. The line is set to arrive in all Target stores in mid-February through March and be available on Target.com on Feb. 22.


This is a sneak peek of the lookbook that they created but you know I love me some stripes, so those pieces definitely caught my eye and I can't wait to see what else is included.

Update: So after I posted this, I got a link to the lookbook for the Spring AVA & VIV Collection so I wanted to add some additional thoughts.

Hello lovelies! I am really excited to share this with you.

Are you familiar with Glam's Haute Havens video series? I love it and think that you will too. The current series of videos is produced in partnership with Nissan Altima and it highlights fab African American women entrepreneurs, creatives, and other well known style movers and shakers who embody the “Have it All” spirit.

The main thing I love about it is that we get to venture into their spaces and see how they live and create environments that are both inviting and inspiring.

So today I am sharing with you the Haute Haven of Lifestyle maven Latham Thomas of Mama Glow.


I love that Latham is all about creating a life that encompasses wellness, spiritual growth and radical self care and her home definitely speaks to that.

{New In}: My Curvy Closet: Plus Size Contrast Panel Dress

Last week I was just doing my usual, scrolling thru some of my favorite websites (on my phone because we still did not have internet at the time), checking out what was new when I came upon this AWEsome Contrast Panel Dress at Boohoo and I instantly knew that I had to have it.

New Year, New Vibe: Be Inspired Journal & Love Pouch Giveaway

One of the things that I started 2015 affirming for myself was actively working to accomplish my goals, my dreams and my aspirations.

Doing so definitely requires spending more time connecting with myself and really getting to the heart of the things that I want to achieve and do and be.

I desire to really engage more creatively, to take more chances, to stop procrastinating and to be open to being inspired in a variety of ways and hopefully be inspiring for others.

So when I came across this journal, it was just PERFECT.
