{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.

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.

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.

{What I Wore} IMAN Platinum Rock the Runway "City Glam" Convertible Coat

This IMAN Platinum Rock the Runway "City Glam" Convertible Coat made me do something I never do...take something out of its shipping package upon arrival &
  rock it immediately!

These snaps I had my rugrat take w/my cell phone are not doing it justice,
but it is just fabulous!

Boyfriend Jeans: Old ASOS Curve (similar here & here and here without the rips)
Shoeties: (similar)

And the fact that you can wear it 4 different ways only ups its fab quotient! I am only wearing it in two of the ways here because I didn't put the faux fur collar on but even without, it is just a great coat.

{My Style} Graphic Black Girl Magic!

I ordered this Black Girls Are Magic tee months back and like a lot of things, it arrived and it kinda got lost in the fray. Originally it was released in limited edition but it is currently available again, so I thought this was the perfect time to rock it.

The shirt was created by one of my favorite twitter peeps who goes by the name Auntie Peebz "in celebration of the beauty, intelligence and power of Black women everywhere". I love it!

{My Style} Fab Werkwear Series:| Casual Friday

This is the fourth and final installment of the Fab Werkwear Series and like any good work week, Week 4 ends with a laid back, casual Friday.

Just to recap: Week 1 was rocking the classic white shirt. Week 2 was all about bringing the prints. Week 3 was werking leather.


There are so many casual work wear options but I would definitely reach for a good pair of dark wash jeans. So I rocked a pair, along with the peplum faux leather jacket from week one and the white shirt from week three (similar here & here) and added my fab leopard booties.

{What I Wore} Plaid: The Key To My Heart

Plaid is EVERYTHING this year and I am loving it!


I looked at this plaid pencil skirt on multiple occasions for over 2 weeks before I actually added it to my cart and purchased it and silly me...I should not have hesitated at all.

{My Style} Fab Werkwear Series:| Leather

Faux leather has become a staple in my wardrobe and really one of my all time favorite fabrics to rock. And while leather may or may not have been a work option for you depending on the industry or type of job you have, I think today, with all the wonderful ways that leather, real and faux are being used, it is a perfect option for the office.

Here are a few examples. I especially love this faux leather trim dress.




I originally was going to wear my blue faux leather top (seen here) with my perforated faux leather skirt (seen herehere) and a simple black blazer.  But in the end I went with this Calvin Klein Marble Print Faux Leather Pleated Skirt (sold out/here in all black) for this weeks Fab Werk Wear challenge because on first look, it is not really obvious that the skirt is faux leather because of the marbelized print and it would be easy to rock it in even the most conservative of work environments.


{Fashion} Love...Need...Want | Plus Size Fashion @ Old Navy

Old Navy has always been one of my main spots for staple pieces but they have really been upping the game in recent times by offering super cute plus size pieces beyond the basics and crazy sales to boot.

Here are some looks put together from current stock that I love...need...want...



There's everything from animal print & stripes to skinny cords & chunky sweaters to sexy skirts & dresses! Lots of great pieces that come in a variety of colors (not all pictured) to mix and match and work all seasons.



What say you? Do you love...need...want these finds?

{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!

{Fab Five} Blogger's Collections Pieces To Love

Am I the only one who feels like this year in particular has been such a fun time for fashion?

We have never had as many plus size options and I am especially geeked that more and more bloggers are dropping collections for the masses (with brands and solo) that reflect their style.

Here are five selections from some of the current blogger's collections that I love and think would be great additions to any wardrobe.

Girl With Curves recently launched her Fall and Holiday 2014 collections and the pieces are crazy chic.  This Ball Gown Skirt is divine...so elegant and rich looking.



{My Style} Fab Werkwear Series: Classic White Shirt

I came across Fab Ellis' Fab Werkwear Series today & although I don't work in an office, I thought it would be fun to join in & flex my office "werkwear" style.

When I used to work in corporate America for the most part my attire was pretty office casual & consisted of simple silhouettes with splatters of my favorite things like pops of color & fun prints.

This would so be an easy, throw on and go Monday morning look. A classic white shirt, animal print skirt, pop of red and my trusty black faux leather peplum jacket.


Everything I am wearing is pretty old. The classic white shirt is from Lane Bryant. I love this similar style. It's a staple for any wardrobe and although I don't wear mine often, when I want that professional, pulled together vibe, I reach for it.

{What I Wore} Plaid Cape + Red Pussy Bow Bodycon Dress

I am trying to get better about wearing things sooner so I can share them before they sell out in case you ladies are interested in purchasing them as well.

I purchased this red pussybow bodycon dress a couple of weeks ago & decided to wear it last night for the Latino Fashion Week Curves event.  Loved what Blair Boutique served on the runway!
