{What I Wore} Working My Gwynnie Bee Closet: Print Longline Scarf Jacket + Jeans

Hey Fabs!

Today I am featuring the City Chic Print Longline Scarf Jacket from my Gwynnie Bee closet. It is such a fun versatile piece.

Historically I have mainly added dresses or blazers to my GB closet, I am mixing it up more, so you will see more pieces like this and blazers, skirts, etc. My options are truly unlimited with all the new styles that they are constantly stocking!

{What I Wore} Florals & Leather!

It's definitely already established that I LOVE prints & faux leather, so it is of course no surprise that I try to combine them in lots of ways, like in my floral pumps and faux leather fringe look and now this one. It's my favorite tender and tough combination.

 Strappy Pumps (a steal at under $13)


{What I Wore} Sleeveless Printed Jumpsuit + Faux Leather

I have had this previous #PlusSizePick, the Sleeveless Printed Modamix jumpsuit for months & it has been in heavy rotation because it's so comfortable but I finally got a chance to snap pics of it.

{What I Wore} Maxi Stripes + A Pop of Color!

Mother Nature hasn't exactly been cooperating so I went to one of my favorite places to visit & shoot, the Garfield Park Conservatory. They have this really awesome umbrella installation for their Spring Flower Show and it just makes an already incredible place even more fab. If you are in Chicago, it is a must visit.

When I go to the Conservatory, I like to get a few looks in, so I shot this look, the body framing snakeskin detail dress and a fabulous jumpsuit look.

Anyway, this Ava & Viv Sleepless Striped Maxi Dress is pretty sweet.

{What I Wore} Flawless Body Framing

I snagged this awesome dress for $10 from ideel back in January. It fits like a glove but feels like pajamas (my favorite kind of dress) and I love the way it frames the body.

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Feraglicous Disobey Wedges #PlusSizePick

Today's #PlusSizePick is these gorgeous Fergalicious Disobey Wedge Heels

I wanted a neutral but not plain heel and these wedges are definitely that! They are also crazy comfortable and at under $40, I already ordered them in the black and I am soooo close to ordering them in the poppy color also  {I ordered them!!!}.

I just love this style, with the sexy ankle strap and the cork insert is a unique addition that definitely appeals to my desire to not go plain.

And I know that I will get so much wear out of these, rocking them with everything from dresses to shorts to jeans. And I especially love that while sometimes heels are a problem for me, wedges have always been my friend.

Shop these wedge heels HERE or HERE! (thanks Ashley!)

What say you? Would you rock these wedges?


{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.


OMG I Feel Like Dorothy In these {Shoes}

Hey Lovelies!

Because I have found shoe sizing at ASOS to be a little janky at times, I was waiting until I actually received these beauties to post them so that I could comment on the sizing.

The good news: They arrived today and I ordered a size 12 and the fit is good. I normally order either an 11 or 12 in shoes depending on the style/brand.

ASOS Shooting Star Heels

ASOS Shooting Star Heels in Mint | Silver

The bad news: As I was writing this, they were currently sold out in the mint and only had a few silver left but as we know, sometimes really popular items get a second life, so fingers crossed for anyone who wanted these and missed them.

They are so friggin beautiful, I don't know if I should wear them or display them on a shelf!

What say you? Would you rock these shoes?


Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Pretty In Pink Polka Dot Heels #PlusSizePick

Hey Lovelies!

These super pretty pink polka dot heels just say Spring to me. I can see them being rocked dressed up with a pretty dress or even casually upgrading a pair of jeans or shorts.

They also come in a black faux suede.

What say you? Do you love these polka dot heels?

Shop these heels HERE and shop the black ones HERE!

Plus Size {Fashion} Pick Of The Day: Striped Slip-On Sneakers #PlusSizePick

I can not tell you how incredibly excited I am that Spring is finally coming. The weather here in Chicago will actually hit the 50's a couple of days this week!!! And while the fact that I am still sick blows, just knowing that warmer days are coming makes me feel better.

And when I saw these Striped Slip-On Sneakers they made me smile because I am addicted to stripes and can never get enough of them in any form or fashion. And the fact that you can currently get them for 40% off only adds to my shopper's delight.


I love them as shown with the white jeans but I would also totally rock them with dresses, skirts, shorts and lots of other colors and pattern combos.

What say you? Would you rock these shoes?

You can shop these slip-ons HERE!


{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.


{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)


{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...


{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).


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.

Wide Width Over the Knee Buckle Boots

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


{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.


{My Style} Butter Leather & Pleated Perfection

I purchased both of these items over a month ago and really wanted to wait to rock them in a way that really showcased how fabulous they both are.
