{Fashion} Spring Things: Sequin Mules

Hello Delights!


And while I totally love the butterfly pumps, I am honest enough with myself to acknowledge that I would not be able to walk in them, so I only ordered the sequin mules. But you can snag them both (or any other shoes) with Payless's current BOGO 1/2 deal TODAY!

{What I Wore} Floral Bell Sleeve Jacket + Pencil Jeans

Hey Delights!

As I mentioned when I featured this floral bell sleeve jacket as a Plus Size Pick, I love this style and was somewhat impatiently waiting for someone to drop it in plus size.  And when they did, I snatched it up on first sight and thankfully I can report that I was not disappointed.

This jacket is gorgeous. The fabric is a great weight and the seams on the flowers add a great texture to it. It is a swing jacket, and as you can see in my happy dance video, it has this great flow and elegance to it even when wearing it with jeans as I was.

{Fashion} Christian Siriano For Payless Runway to Real Way

Hey Delights!

I have featured Christian Siriano here on le blog more than any other designer. He is actually one of the few brands that have a post label on my site, mainly due to his partnerships with Payless and in recent times, Lane Bryant. And I continue to appreciate what he brings to the fashion space through these collaborations and by using his voice and designs to make a statement that fashion should be inclusive.

His Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week show took place today & he did not disappoint. He had an incredibly diverse show with models of various sizes, shapes and colors, not to mention that the clothes were BEAUTIFUL!

Amazing right? 💖 And Christian's long standing partnership with Payless just gets better and better as the years go by. For this show he created two limited edition pairs of shoes, a gorgeous butterfly print pump and a fabulous pink sequin mule that are MUST HAVES and going on sale at Payless less than 24 hours after his runway show!  

I NEED them both!

What say you? What did you think of the show? Do you love the shoes?

{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} Red Fit & Flare

Hey Delights!

I have written about this many times about heart disease and how it has affected me and my family but it bears repeating over & over again that heart disease & stroke are the #1 KILLERS OF WOMEN.  And while Go Red For Women Day was a big day of national awareness, the American Heart Association is a cause we can & should support year round.

I own lots of red dresses but of course you can never have too many, so as I mentioned here, I made a quick Macy's run (who is having a sweet Valentine's Day sale) and purchased this fit and flare dress.

{What I Wore} Colorfully In Vested

Hello Delights!

I have had this fabulously colorful faux fur vest for years now. I remember when it first arrived that I couldn't stop wearing it around the house. It even ended up getting some love in my Warby Parker Home Try On Glasses review video. A faux fur vest is such a perfect layering piece for this time of the year, so I pulled it out for a Sunday of shopping and theater.
I just LOVE it!

{What I Wore} Duck'n Into Weekend

Hello delights! Today we are waking up in a frigid Chicago.  It is currently 15° as I am writing this but yesterday although it snowed lightly, I was able to rock one of my moto jackets & throw one of my reversible capes over it and hit the streets.

We finally got to see moonlight and I loved it. It made me sad but I loved the moments in it that showed the depth of our human capacity, compassion and connection. Mahershala Ali's Sag Awards acceptance speech pretty much summed it up.

{What I Wore} Emoji Plaid

This plaid caplet is definitely one of my favorite finds ever and it is the perfect layering piece. I threw it over a faux leather moto jacket, rocked some jeans, calf length boots and the cutest emoji wristlet.

{What I Wore} Teddy Bear Faux Fur Coat & Blooms

Hey Delights! 

One of the things that I promised myself during the 12 Days of January was that I would do something small but special for myself every weekend. So now that I am on my way back to wellness and up and at it again, Sunday I went and picked up some flowers. Nothing expensive. I got them at Trader Joe's for like $10. But they are beautiful and they make me smile, which is all that matters.

And because as I mentioned here, I wanted to lighten up my energy, I pulled out my teddy bear coat. I love this coat so much. It's totally like rocking a cozy blanket 😘

{What I Wore} Popped A Little Powder Blue Spring on this Winter

After being sick for what felt like FOREVER, I have really been in search of things that give me a little more pep in my step, so I have ditched my beloved long black puffer coat (seen here & here) for my more colorful ones and I already feel lighter.

Saturday I went to see a great play (review forthcoming) and I pulled out this powder blue beauty that I got from Old Navy forever ago to rock over a catsuit. It is fuzzy and such a great color that you can't help but feel good in it.

Here are a few other lighter, fab, fuzzy winter coats to put a little Spring in your Winter.

{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 🔑

The CurvaCast: The 12 Days of January | Day 7 #12DaysofJanuary

Happy Saturday and welcome to Day 7 of the 12 Days of January.
{insert praise dance 💃}

 Boot Tray Boots: Here, here & here | Odor Eaters (necessity for winter boots!)
Hey Delights! I am so excited that we have made it through the first half of the The 12 Days of January!

Hopefully you have had a chance to start thinking about how simple actions can have a huge, positive impact on your life if you do them consistently.

I know that I have and even though I have been sick most of this year so far, I have actually been grateful for the structure the actions provide.

For example, I love how the action from Day 1 has been taking shape in my life.  When I wake up an hour earlier, although I definitely haven't jumped right out of bed every day, I have used that time to stretch and have my tea or some days drugs for this beast of a cold. But I love that I have that time to contemplate my day and just spend quiet time with myself before I have to spend it with others.

I am hoping to use that time going forward to meditate, read, pin on Pinterest, something I enjoy but don't do nearly enough, etc.

Anyway, on to today's podcast for Day 7 of The 12 Days of January. It is short and sweet but hopefully it plants a seed for you to do what I did and get something very simple that makes your life instantly better.

{What I Wore} Casual Velvet Drama

The same day that we had that crazy beautiful first Chicago snow of the season, we went bowling to celebrate my nephew and bro in laws birthdays.

Although I wasn't planning to bowl, because I was out running errands beforehand, I kept my style casual with a little pleated sleeves drama & a gorgeous velvet blazer.

{What I Wore} Holiday Vibe

Christmas came and went in a blur but not before I got to celebrate it a little. We started Christmas morning off by volunteering at the Center on Halsted and afterwards went home for a little nap and then off to hang with the fambam at my sister's house.

I wanted to keep my style majorly relaxed so I pulled out my fave velvet jumpsuit (I LOVE this one that is currently on ridiculous sale under $30) & my Noel flats from last year. I also finally wore the Eloquii cape blazer I purchased in 2015.

{Five Fab} For the Weekend Vol. 11 - The Last Minute Christmas Shopping Edition!

HAPPY FRIDAY DELIGHTS! 
I can not believe how fast this month has gone by and Christmas is just 2 days away.  Yesterday I tried to hit the stores but even before I made it off the train I realized that I just didn't want to spend my day dealing with the crowds.  So I took myself to lunch, surprised Joe with some lunch at work and then went home and did my shopping online.

I love utilizing the buy online and pick up in store option.  Especially at this time of the year because nothing takes the fa la la out of the holidays like frantic shoppers & crowded stores.

Trust me.😩

So for this week's Five Fab for the Weekend shop section I have put together a list of a few of my favorite stores that offer buy online and pick up in store options. 🙌

Shop:   Macy's | Target | Gap | Nordstrom | Bed Bath & Beyond | Crate & Barrel | KmartThe Container Store (additional 15% off order online/pick up orders)

Oh and let's not forget Amazon Prime Now. I use this A LOT and placed an order last night that should be delivered to my door any minute now. I love that you get to set the delivery window and for the holiday you can order & they are delivering up until MIDNIGHT Christmas Eve.

If you follow me on snapchat, you know I have been in Macy's quite a bit using their buy online/pick up in store option and that is because the deals are RIDONCULOUS! Like crazy good.

Wear: I picked up these super cute Khombu duck boots from Macy's a couple of weeks ago for a great deal and they are even cheaper now & you will get a WOW Pass to use on your next order when you use buy online/pick.

{What I Wore} The Magic of A Red Dress

I featured & purchased this gorgeous red off the shoulder flare sleeves dress back in August but because I felt that it would be so perfect for the holiday season, I tucked it away in my closet and patiently waited for the right moment.

Red has always been my I am woman, hear me roar power color but something about it during the holiday season turns that power into magic!

{What I Wore} Winter Wonderland Casual

Mother Nature and I have not been friends since Chiberia 2013/14 but on Sunday she cloaked Chicago in the fluffiest, most beautiful snow and I completely loved it.

As I mentioned in my Fab Five For The Weekend post, I went to get my Christmas tree and well, the snow definitely made it a little more challenging to do but I didn't even care.

It was just that fabulous. Ok Mother Nature girl, you did good this time.  Keep it up! LOL. 😄

{Fashion} Slip Into Cozy With These Cute Winter Slippers

I pretty much wear some sort of socks all year round when I chilling at the flat but when winter comes, I always upgrade to warmer, fluffier slippers because there is almost nothing worse than cold feet. 

Last year I snagged these super cute festive slippers pictured and this year I definitely plan to add a couple more pairs to my winter warmth arsenal.

Check out more pajama's here.
I like being able to mix it up depending on my mood, so sometimes I want some fuzzy slippers, sometimes I want a lil glam and sometimes, I just want something silly that makes me smile. So here are just a few of the ones that I am loving.

{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.
