{What I Wore} Casual Layered Miami Beach Style

When I booked the trip to Miami to celebrate my rugrat's 21st birthday, the weather was predicted to be in the 80's so I planned a casual wardrobe that consisted mainly of simple dresses & seperates.

As with my previous Miami style post, I am wearing pieces from Rebdolls, a two piece crop set to be exact under a split maxi t-shirt dress and my fav new shoes, my white perforated mules from Shoedazzle. (You can check this look out in motion here on my instagram page)


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Metallic Flawless Clutch #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies!

Today's #PlusSizePick is another item that reeks of Spring to me.  This super pretty dusky pink "Flawless" clutch will be so cute with all of Springs colors & prints & it would be great popped off darker colors like Marsala, the Pantone color of the year..



And BONUS! You can currently take an additional 40% it's sale price.

What say you? Would you rock this bag?

{What I Wore} Miami Beach Style: Bodycon + Faux Fur

Hey Lovelies!

Before leaving for Miami, I was dealing with some kind of a bug, a bug that I thought I had conquered because I felt pretty good the entire time I was there.

But fast forward to Sunday and my return to Chicago and within hours of my stepping on the ice cold concrete, my throat started hurting again, my nose started running and Monday night brought the return of hacking my brain out.

So apparently my body has decided to revolt against wellness in protest of me forcing it to live in this coldness. Bwaaaa....Spring! I need you!

Sigh...anyway, the weather in Miami was definitely colder than normal but I was able to rock the pieces that I packed and I layered this Rebdolls dress under my AnnaFesta faux fur capelet (last seen here).

{What I Wore} Sneak Peek: Miami Beach Style

Hello Lovelies! 

I just returned from Miami with my rugrat celebrating her 21st birthday and as it has been in lots of other parts of the country, it was cooler than normal in Miami while we were there.

So, while I didn't get to rock a bathing suit, I did pull out a couple of layered warmer weather looks to rock. I am of course currently in post vacation, catch up mode but wanted to drop a little sneak peek.




More to come...



Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Leopard Print Coat #PlusSizePick

{A Blogger's Life} Photo Shoot Outtakes #Throwback

Hello Lovelies!

I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of the crazy, funny, and sometimes exhausting things that occurs when I am taking pictures for the blog.

I have mentioned before how the weather can be really challenging. For example, the wind would not let my hair be great here and was blowing it all over, so we had to stop, regroup and change our angle.


On this shoot, we actually had to stop shooting and go into Walgreens to buy hairspray and my poor hair ended up stiff as a board because the wind had whipped it and any little bit of curl that I had was gone. (Check out the final pics on this post HERE)


{Rock} Winter White + Gold Valentine's Day Style


Hello Lovelies! 

Look two of my Valentine's Day style feature is as promised,
completely different from look one, the rocker chic vibe.


I felt very "The Lady Loves Couture" in this look. Both my faux fur capelet & zipper pencil skirt are from AnnaFesta, an independent brand that I have featured before (herehere & here).

{Rock} Rocker Chic: Sequins, Fringe + Floral Valentine's Day Style

Although they are of course the ultimate in sweet and power colors, my idea of the perfect Valentine's Day looks doesn't consist of pink or red.

In line with what is becoming my tradition, I am once again sharing Valentine's Day looks that aren't necessarily traditional and which are actually on two completely different fashion spectrums.

First up is a little rocker chic featuring several of my favorite things, leather, sequins & florals.

{Video} Review: Warby Parker Home Try-On Glasses Program

So, I received my selections from the Warby Parker Home Try-On Glasses Program and I thought unboxing them they would be the perfect way to drop my first vlog of the year.


I was really hoping to find a pair (or two) that are stylish so that I can upgrade my prescription glasses game, especially my sunnies.

{What I Wore} Power Red For Women! #WearRedDay


Happy #WearRedDay Lovelies!


Lauren Ralph Lauren Dress (another fab option HERE

I am rocking the red and supporting the cause in the Lauren Ralph Lauren Ruffled Boatneck Jersey Dress I wrote about here which has since completely sold out. It is everything I hoped it would be and more and it was such a friggin steal.

Anyway, today I hope that you are spreading the word about heart disease and especially it's impact on women. I also hope that you, like I are planning to take the necessary steps to visit a doctor so that you are empowered with the knowledge to take & maintain control of your heart health!

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Ralph Lauren Ruffled Boatneck Dress #PlussizePick

Happy February Lovelies!

I have been totally consumed with red the last couple of weeks. I mean even more so than my normal obsession with it. It is truly my POWER color.

And the fact that we are welcoming what I like to call "The Love Month", February, definitely doesn't quell my desire to immerse myself in everything red.

So, today's #plussizepick, the Lauren Ralph Lauren Ruffled Boatneck Jersey Dress will come as no surprise (although the price of it will!! Under $30 (marked down from $150) + free shipping currently).

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Wide Width Over the Knee BuckleBoot #PlussizePick

Who doesn't love an over the knee boot?

Thankfully, there are lots of stylish options available for those of us who need a boot in a wider width & I am sharing a super cute one today.

I chose this particular wide width boot as my #plussizepick of the day because I love that they would be great dressed up or down AND that you can wear them without worrying about hitting the pavement when the weather isn't so agreeable because of the short heel.

I also love pretty much any footwear with buckles, so this was a no brainer. 

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Halter Quarter Cup Bra #PlussizePick

{UPDATE}! This bra arrived and it is so gorgeous but if your girls are as large as mine (44DDD) this will most likely be a piece of lingerie that you rock indoors, rock with another bra for a cute layered effect or you might rock it under a top or dress that you want to add a pretty halter vibe to.


Today's pick is this insanely gorgeous and incredibly unique styled halter quarter cup bra. Talk about heating things up. This bra is sure to set off Valentin's or any other day/night!



I saw this on my phone (which is where I am writing this post) and I was like OH MY GAWD, I NEED! And I immediately went to order it. It is so pretty & BONUS: matching panties are available as well.

Shop this bra HERE!


What say you? Would you rock this bra?

{The Top 10} Instagram Curvy Fashion Moments of The Week #CurvyTop10

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Cord Neck Dress #PlussizePick

While for the most part it is relatively conservative, with it's long sleeves and knee length, the neckline on this red haute Cord Neck Dress is a fabulous and unique way to add another dimension to a dress!

I mean the red is awesome enough on it's own but the neckline upgrades this dress to whole other level!

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Rocker Chic Faux Fox Vest #PlussizePick

Hey Lovelies, this colorful rocker chic fur faux vest is a must have!!

Plus Size Faux Fur Vest Red Black Blue Adrienne Landau HSN


Winter can be brutal and I feel like we need to fight the good fight by rocking incredible pieces and I definitely feel that this is one of them. And my faux fur obsession is totally stoked by it!

It comes in two colors, this fabulous red, blue and black color combination which is a nice change of pace for faux fur and a more traditional silver and black.  

I ordered it in the first color combo and I have been rocking my vests over my coats all fall and winter & will definitely do the same with this one. It's a fun way to mix things up and add that extra layer of warmth.

I can't wait for it to arrive!

Shop the look HERE!

What say you? Would this vest amp up your winter style?
