{What I Wore} Head to Toe Au Faux + The Perfect LBD For EVERY Body

Hey Delights!

I attended a pre-opening event & tour of the new Eloquii Chicago store and a couple of weeks later I attended the official grand opening. I pulled out my fab Violeta by Mango faux leather cape & rocked a gorgeous asymmetrical one shoulder faux leather top with a vintage Eloquii skirt from a year or so ago & some oldie but goodie slinkback shoeties (similar style available in 2 colors).
All the blogger babes were there and I had such a great time styling my cousin & smiling at the transformation that took place for her in the dressing room. A little backstory. My cousin Sonya's style is relatively conservative but I knew the moment that I invited her to the event that I was going to get her to try some new things.

Hey Delights!

The Gwynnie Bee closet is always overflowing with fabulous frocks for any occasion but I especially love this time of  the year when I get to rock pieces like this Robbie Bee fit and flare dress.  I am living for everything velvet & this dress is beautifully framed in it & while that is a great detail on its own, the textured polka dots add a whole other level of fab to it.

It was in the 50's & chilly in Chicago so I pulled out some tights and layered this bomb Design History velvet bomber under my faux leather cape (last seen here) and added a pop of color with my silver heels (last seen here).

Hey Delights!

The Gwynnie Bee love continues! In case you are new around these parts and don't know, I have been a Gwynnie Bee girl since 2012 when I rocked this amazing batwing dress and peplum hounds tooth top from my first box.  Fast forward to 2017 and I have been werking the most beautiful dresses from them all summer long. And this gorgeous Taylor floral fit & flare dress is the most recent one.
I paired it with pops of pink with my fabulous pink ruffle mid heels & pink fold over purse (c/o Stitchfix similar) (last seen here).  These shoes make me smile so hard and I get so many compliments every time I wear them. They are just so fun. They also come in a sparkly silver color that I just ordered (on sale for $22).

I am so excited to share with you that the first Eloquii store in the Midwest is opening here in Chicago on Thursday and it is going to be amazing! We celebrated with a blogger breakfast in a gorgeous suite at The Gwen and a tour of the store located at The Shops at North Bridge on Michigan Avenue. {more on that to come}.

I rocked this gorgeous orange ruffle overlay wrap dress (c/o) and played up it's beautiful color with these vibrant pink ruffle mid heels and I seriously felt amazing! It is such a great color combo.

Hey Delights!

I am getting back in the groove of  early morning kid detail now that the wee one is here and this morning I only forgot one thing: the last minute stop, stare, adjust before we walked out the door.

So needless to say, once we finally got on our way and I looked at her, I realized that she had toothpaste all around her mouth. 😱 And since it was like 6:30 in the morning, I didn't take my purse with me, which has essentially the tools in it to survive almost any natural disaster, we made do with a quick hand wipe and lip balm.

LOL...anyway, as I mentioned, it was early. Way earlier than I normally start my days, so I grabbed two pieces that required nothing of me other than that I put them on, a lace dress (similar in 3 colors) that I have had forever and my Victoria Beckham x Target lace bomber jacket (last seen here with a maxi dress).

Hey Delights!
As I mentioned here my grand daughter has come to town and today was her first day of summer camp. When we dropped her off this morning I had to practically drag Joe out. Like let's go, don't linger and make her feel your clingy energy. We walked out and within 5 seconds another little girl had walked over to say hi to the wee one. I love this about kids. They want to make friends, to connect.

Yesterday we were out all day shopping and because I knew it was going to be an adventure I wanted to be as comfortable as possible so I pulled this crochet inset maxi dress I got a week ago out and because it was a bit chilly in my city, I pulled out this lace bomber jacket from the Victoria Beckham x Target collection.

I have returned from San Francisco and I am exhausted but there is no rest for the weary, right? My grand wee one has arrived and will be with us for the next 5 weeks, so I will be deep in it 😢 LOL.

I will share more about my time with Stitch Fix in another post but I wanted to share the look I wore for the live unboxing event with you. It was so much fun...but more on that to come.

I felt like a delicious chocolate candy bar in this dress!

I am completely committed to keeping my style easy this summer, so when I saw this embroidered cold shoulder peasant dress I instantly feel in love with it's relaxed vibe.  And of course I am always #TeamColdShoulder and the embroidery on the sleeve, which is amazing, sealed the deal.
I am working to not complain about the weather although I think my face kinda gives me away in this pic. It was pretty warm and a girl was HOT! 😓

Hey Delights!

I am definitely maxing out my Gwynnie Bee closet lately. There are just so many fabulous pieces available. I get excited every time I get a shipping confirmation email. And since delivery is always quick, I always have something new to rock which makes getting dressed sooo easy. And that is exactly how I like it to be.💃

The palm print on this London Times beauty is just so colorful and fun. I love the fact that it has that pretty gold zipper up the front. I hate struggling with back zippers and it is a great detail.

Hey Delights!

As with the retro floral jumper, I purchased this blue and white striped gathered waist dress when the Victoria Beckham x Target collection dropped and I am glad that I did because it was pretty popular in both plus and straight sizes. I purchased it in a 2 x and it appears to currently be available in certain stores in certain sizes still.  And I finally took her for a little showcasing on the streets yesterday and love it.

I added a ribbon that I had on hand as a belt because I liked they way it ties in with the straps on my shoes but I will be wearing this dress without a belt and I also visualize it as a jacket over say a simple white dress.

I love being able to express so many different sides of my personality with fashion. And I especially love the fun that you can have with fashion in the Summer. So when I saw this Floral Romper with the Mesh Skirt on Instagram, I knew I had to have it. I originally saw it in black but snagged the white because it is just summer vibe perfect, light & easy.

We went to the Vegan Food & Drink Festival on Saturday and had an amazing time! I pulled out this easy, breezy, lightweight open shoulder ruffle maxi dress from Boohoo. It was 90 degrees and super sunny, so this fabulous wide brim visor, which comes in 21 colors was a godsend.

Hey Delights!

When this dress first arrived from my Gwynnie Bee closet I was taken aback for 2.5 seconds at how bright it was because the photos of it didn't do it's bright hues justice. It is literally a pastel party in a dress.  Someone said to me that seeing me in it instantly made him feel happier and I had to agree. This Gabby Skye dress is such a bright, easy wearing, happy piece.

The brand although not new, is new to me and this is the first but definitely not the last piece of theirs that I will wear. You can find lots of gorgeous dresses here and Lane Bryant also sells certain styles.

{Fashion} Gingham + Denim = All Love

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

Hey Delights!

Gingham is EVERYWHERE this year and I for one am totally here for it. The traditional print is getting lots of love in creative fashion ways, especially in plus size.  And denim is of course a life staple and it too is getting lots of love this season in the most fun ways. I am especially loving it in lighter colors with cute variations like rips, patches and even found some crochet and of course in shorts. So I put together a bunch of gingham and denim pieces that I am loving below that I think would be great additions to your summer fun wardrobe.

I purchased this swimsuit weeks ago and it is by far the best swimsuit I have ever owned because the top has a built in bra that I was able to get in my actual bra size, 44DDD and the fit and support is AMAZING.

I am excited that Summer is almost here so I can rock it outside of my house 😊. I almost went to the beach yesterday after a morning of bike riding but a long soak and relaxing on the couch won out. But soon...SOON! I purchased these cute denim ballet flats a week ago and I love them. {They also come in black and a taupe-y neutral} I LIVE in flats, so I love that I can get them in a lot of colors, textures and styles.

{Fashion} White Party Season Comes At You Fast: 20 White Party Perfect Dresses!

Hey Fab! As per our disclosure policy, we use affiliate links that may result in compensation if you click links & make purchases. 

The past few summers around mid to late June I have found myself on the hunt for a fabulous white outfit for some kind of a white white themed party/event.

And most times I found myself really disappointed because by then the stores have kinda started switching over their sales season & are not really selling a whole bunch of white anymore. And if they are, it's usually the stuff that you don't really want, like picked over damaged mess and just NO.

One year when I was going to New York City for Full Figured Fashion Week & needed a look for their white boat party I ended up running all over town searching after dealing with a disaster of a seamstress. Thankfully I lucked up on a white dress from Loft in a non-plus size that fit me.  Another reminder to always try things on ladies!

Last summer I ended up wearing off white to a white party. The crochet shorts were super cute but they were not that pure, crisp, summer white that I wanted.
So this year I made a promise to myself not to wait until the heart of the summer to start looking for my white pieces. So, I am on the hunt now & here are 20 white dresses (well 19 dresses + 1 romper) that I am loving.

Little did I know on the bright, sunny, amazing day that this picture was taken, (which was the day after my 48th birthday) that I would become insanely sick only a few hours later. And to make matters worse, I would have to get on an airplane for a quick 2 day turnaround trip to New York City. Which I am sure only added to how severe my sickness became.
