{What I Wore} Valentine's Blush

Hello Delights!

As I mentioned in my post featuring the faux leather peg leg pants, I really want to have fun with fashion and rock things that I don't normally rock. So when I saw this soft pink crepe blazer and ankle grazer cigarette pants, I had to have them & I am thinking about getting them in the lavender color that is currently available.

While I LOVE color and wear it as much as possible, I rarely wear pink. And I definitely did not have a pink pant suit in my life. And this is such a sweet blush of pink. While I went pretty dressy for this look with the deep v bodysuit & floral heels, I can't wait to dress these pieces down also.


{What I Wore} Plush Leopard

I have had this leopard print faux fur forever yet she never ceases to make me smile when I put her on and I am just going to say it, every woman should have one, so if you don't, what are you waiting for?

{What I Wore} Peg Leggin' It

Hey Delights! I am not normally a peg leg pants kind of a girl but this year I will be all about branching out & trying new things in every area of my life but especially on the fashion front.

So during a recent fashion haul of some serious sale items, I scooped up these fab faux leather peg leg pants, this soft pink crepe blazer and matching ankle grazer cigarette pants, this velvet cami dress & this cute "life's a beach bag" for the beach, one of which I hope to be on in the next couple of months.

Besides being a deep, rich oxblood, these beauties had 3 major 🔑's going for them.
  1. They are on sale for $23 
  2. They are a really nice weight faux leather, like reallllyyy nice & well lined. So I will be rockin' them all year long. 
  3. They are only $23!! Oh yeah I mentioned that already didn't I? Well a girl is really all about stretch'n her coinage this year, so that price is in the words of DJ Khalid, #MajorKey 🔑

{What I Wore} Faux Leather + Cold Shoulder Stripes

Today was such a beautiful day. Fall is in full effect and I am all about layering, so I paired this gorgeous striped cold shoulder sweater with my fuzzy sweater and threw my faux leather cape over them.

I am still madly in love with my faux leather culottes so I wear them as much as possible all year long. They just make getting dressed so easy because they truly go with EVERYTHING & they add that little touch of luxury.

{What I Wore} Rockin' Pleats and Plaid

Hey Fabs!

As I wrote about in my Adam Lippes for Target #PlusSizePick's post, this plaid duster was a must have.  It's obviously a great looking piece but what I was not expecting, was that it would be made of such a great material. This is definitely a cool weather piece, made of heavy weight sweater material and it has been perfect layered over my jackets on these cool Fall days.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale #PlusSizePick's

Hey Fabs!

It's that time of the year, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has dropped and it is one a pretty sweet sale. And besides the great deals and free shipping (which I love...LOVE), it is even more exciting for me, that there are hundreds of plus size items available.

And since I am actually slowly but surely getting into Fall shopping mode, most of the pieces that are high on my MUST HAVE list are pieces that can be rocked now but that also would transition easily into the next season.

One such piece is these fabulous Faux Leather Culottes (that sold out at Eloquii).

I love how casual cool they are and I can totally see myself rocking them now with a simple, flowy top and as it gets a bit cooler, the styling above with different shoes or booties even, would be perfect.

There is lots to choose from but here are some of my other picks.

What say you? Are you shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

They also come in black and both can easily be rocked at the office or out on the town.

What say you? Are you lovin' on these pants?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick of The Day: The $25 & Under Memorial Day Weekend Edition #PlusSizePick

Hey Fabs! Happy Memorial Day Weekend! 

I don't recall when this new "tradition" of massive sales for Memorial Day weekend began but I am all for it and sharing a couple of the ones that I totally think are worth your time and money!

Eloquii has a sweet 25 items for $25 sale that includes these fabulous full pleat skirts in the most gorgeous colors. Here are two of my faves, the limeade and sparkling grape.

And of course ASOS is getting in on the action with 20% off full priced items. The amount and always on trend style of ASOS Curve and other plus size brands available on the site has made me a bonafide stan, so I always include them in my picks.

Since this is the unofficial start of summer, I have the beach on my mind and these two pieces are perfect as beach cover-ups.

What say you? Are you lovin' these pieces?


{Five Fab} Floral Fashion Picks $25 & Under!

Hey Lovelies!

I recently purchased this pretty floral wristlet from Avenue for $10 and it pretty much set me off on the hunt for more bargain floral pieces to add to my wardrobe, and since I know I am not the only one who swoons over a good deal, I am sharing some of my finds with you here.


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Modamix Collection @ Macy's #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies!

I have featured Modamix pieces before on le blog, here and here but I made them the #PlusSizePick of the day because the current pieces on sale at Macy's had me swooning and wanting to snatch them all off the racks.

I took some quick snaps on my phone and I am loving the vibrant colors, patterns, textures and the variety of styles available. I did snag a couple of pieces, so expect to see them here on le blog at some point.

Not everything in store is currently on the website but  this illusion stripe jacket and this gorgeous peachy rose perforated faux leather skirt both are and I love them!

What say you? Have you rocked Modamix?


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: 5 Wardrobe Staples From Violeta by Mango #PlusSizePick

This edition of the #PlusSizePick features one of the newer brands offering plus sizes, Violeta by Mango. And since I have been eager to try the brand out, their current up to 70% off sale seemed like the perfect time to do so.

There is a crazy amount of items up for grabs but I wanted to narrow down my selection of featured items to pieces that can easily be integrated into your wardrobe. And honestly doing so was really HARD!!!! I mean there really are A LOT of fab pieces.

If you missed snagging the Lauren Ralph Lauren dress, this red draped waist dress is a great alternative. And this contrast trim skirt can definitely be worn at the office or out to dinner. I chose this chest pocket crepe blouse because it's a classic fabric made a little less stuffy by the pockets, so yes, you can rock it for work but also on the weekend with your favorite jeans. And this cotton suit jacket and cotton suit pants of course come together to make the most basic of wardrobe staples but with a slightly edgier style to them.

Notes: The Violeta by Mango line runs in sizes 8-20 and since this is a newer brand offering plus sizes on top of being a non US brand you will really want to double check the sizing chart to make sure that you are ordering your correct size.

p.s I placed my order a few days ago and I was going to feature the jacket I purchased but it is already sold out, so if you see something you love in your size, you might want to order it ASAP!

What say you? Have you tried this brand?

{Five Fab} Pieces From Emme's Plus Size Style Ideel Collaboration

Hey Lovelies!

Note: The second collection consisting of prints has posted and the third collection consisting of Vivid Brights & Florals will launch March 9th!

I have written before about ideel being one of my favorite online shopping haunts so I am excited to see that they have tapped plus supermodel Emme to curate three collections.  

The first collection contains 65 pieces and is all about the classic colors black and white.

Here are a five fab pieces from the first collection that I love.


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Lace Print Tapered Trousers #PlusSizePick

Today's #PlusSizePick is these Lace Print Trousers that I ordered as my first purchase from Misguided's plus size section and they are so cute .

I ordered these in a size 20, which is their largest size because they are a more fitted style & I didn't want them too tight in the hip and they fit my hips perfectly, although as with most of my pants, I will have to take in the waist a bit. The fabric is almost like the scuba fabric showing up everywhere, so they wear/feel like leggings.

What say you?

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Sleeveless Printed Jumpsuit #PlusSizePick

I purchased today's #PlusSizePick, this Modamix Sleeveless Printed Jumpsuit a few weeks ago and while I don't own a lot of jumpsuits, I absolutely LOVE it!


{What I Wore} Red Haute & Ugly Christmas

My style goal for Christmas day was to keep it simple and cute. First up was this awesomely fabulous red London Pintuck Sheath Dress (similar black here) from my Gwynnie Bee closet.


Insta {My Style} Recap - Lots of Prints, Pops of Color and More! #NaBloPoMo

Yesterday was a crazy full, super productive day and I totally got in bed with my laptop and proceeded to fall asleep before posting this but the #NaBloPoMo continues...

As mentioned here, my instagram has become my new home for lots of my looks that I have snapped while out and about and snaps of bits of my days, etc. so here are some of the latest from the last few weeks.

I have been living in this faux fur vest. 
It's from the old Eloquii last year but I also love this one.


{My Style} Fab Werkwear Series:| Rockin' Prints

I am not a conservative person and that extends to my wardrobe choices, even in the workplace.  And as a girl who will never shy away from prints, I decided to really max out the contrast of my look for this week's Fab Werk Wear challenge.

Coming from an investments background, things were for the most part pretty sterile as far as fashion went but I always expressed my personality with color, prints, jewelry, etc. And my Lands End trench coat makes everything seem more fab. It's such a great color. And speaking of this color, I found a yellow short peplum trench and HAD TO HAVE IT!


{What I Wore} Carmakoma + S/S 2015 Preview

One of the things I did last month in New York City was check out the preview  of the upcoming S/S 2015 Carmakoma collection.

And because I already owned these fab floral pieces from the SS14 collection, I was definitely not surprised that this collection consisted of great fabrics, textures and design. I seriously love...need...want EVERYTHING!

Jacket & Joggers: Carmakoma | Shoeties (similar)
 Lippie: BH Cosmetics Vixen (review here)

{What I Wore} Pucker Up! | Kiss My Biker Chic

I realized recently that as much as I love a good kitschy piece, I don't own that many of them, so when I saw this ASOS Halloween Lips Clutch, I had to have it. Isn't it the cutest?!!


{What I Wore} Rockin' Fall Floral Joggers

When I chose these pants, I did so mainly because I realized that while I own lots of floral pieces, I didn't own a pair of floral pants.

I love these poppy print joggers. They are so comfortable and the print is so gorgeous. I also love these rose print joggers. These are both tall length as I prefer them over the shorter versions.

Joggers: Dorothy Perkins c/o | Peplum Faux Leather Jacket: Kohl's (sold out)
 Felt Floppy Fedora: Old Navy | Shoeties: Shoemint (sold out last seen here
Backpack: Deux Lux (similar)
