Lela Rose in my Fall closet

I enjoy seeing major designers having an open mind and allow the average woman to purchase their designs. For the past year and some change Lela Rose has been one of my favorite designers. Particularly in her shoe designs. I think she really has an eye for mixing colors, textures, and prints. Her shoes are about making a statement; which speaking from experience, they do just that. Her fall collection keeps with what I’ve come to love about her.

 I personally own the yellow strap pumps. They are super comfortable, which is also a staple in Lela Rose designs.  She is now and forever a part of my choice of designers.

When Life gives you a dress…

You know when they say life gives you lemons, make lemonade?!?! yea I’m sure you know. Well this pass weekend was a perfect example. My friends and I were heading up to Boston to go a fashion show that one of my followers had invited me to. We were geeked, we had our outfits planned out, right down to our make-up. But sadly half through out bus ride we found out that the fashion show was canceled….soooo now what? Needless to say we were rather bumed out. But hell we figured, still get dressed up any way, take pictures and go out to dinner. And hell we had our own little fashion show in the hallway of our hotel.
It was the best. To see all our outfits and how different we really are, but the bond that we share is that we love fashion, so it totally works for us!
I wore and a knee length body con dress with an Aztec print from Asos (their straight size line #win) my mint green pumps and my yellow clutch from Fashion to Figure. Make-up, hair and jewelry was kept simple because you know me…my outfit should always be the main statement!

I got the idea from Gabi’s outfit, which you can see here!

OMG…Shoes!

I know it has been quite awhile with me posting, I’ve been working like crazy, but I’m quite excited about this post. Answer me this ladies, how many times do you find great shoes but they’re tooooo TIGHT? or those shoes fit but just don’t zip up over those great calves? Well ladies I just heard about an awesome online store that is just for you.

Vivaladiva.com is here to save the day. vivaladiva.com boost 180 different brands of shoes, with a range of sizes and for wide feet calves. This fabulous site offers wide fitting shoes and wide fitting boots for all women, men and children #epicwin When I found out about the site, it was relief to know that there are wide fitting shoes and boots available. As the shoe junkie (yea I said junkie) that I am, the minute I saw the homepage I felt right at home (pun definitely intended) lol. It’s perfect for all us women that can go from wearing those 4-5 inch heels and want to switch it up and wear sneakers. It’s a one stop shop how could you go wrong.

VivaLaDiva.com aims to be the leading footwear destination website, developed by women who love shoes – for women who love shoes.

vivaladiva.com

A lot of times we sacrifice being comfortable in shoes, because they are just to cute but vivaladiva.com allows us to have our cake and eat it to. They also offer intricate measuring charts to ensure that those fabulous pumps or boots fit just right. I know I couldn’t tell you the 1st thing about measuring ones feet. But vivaladiva gives you step by step instructions to guide you to the right fit. So for those who have wide feet, fat feet, muscular calves, or just rather large calves…vivaladiva.com has got you covered.

Now on to the logistics. Price point is always important when buying shoes (or anything for that matter) but I am proud to say that the prices are reasonable on a very wide spectrum. There are prices to fit the recession free shopper as well as the student loan paying, tight budget shopper. Granted the prices are in Euros, but it’s nothing a currency converter can’t help.

of course I have to show the few things on my wishlist….

Their slogan says A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO SHOES and they couldn’t be any more right.

I’m on Team Dereon

I'm on Team Dereon


Yes I am on #teamdereon I am quite proud of Beyonce and her line Dereon. I usually don’t really care for urban lines, because they’re always gaudy and sometimes just straight up ugly. But today as I was out shopping for a christmas party I’m going to this weekend, I stopped in  a random shoe store. I was looking for some black pumps. because I realized I own no black pumps (crazy right!!!) but anyway, just as I was about to give up hope, I saw the quilted black pumps with the Deron symbol. They’re actually nice in person. AND THEY HAD THEM IN MY SIZE #EPICWIN.
The store I was in happen to have more of her pumps so I tried on a few. and fell in love with all the ones I tried on. I ended up buying the first ones in the pic above. They seem plain but they have a nice surprise on the heel. You will see more about them when I do the outfit post about my Christmas look.
I think what I enjoy about these shoes is that they are completely covered with the symbol of Dereon. She could have very well made them all sparkly with all kinds of colors and chains and hooks and what not lol I like that she kept them simple but still very much Bey’s style!

Be sure to enter the GIVE-A-WAY!!!

Big girl in a Crop Top..uh oh!

so yea I I have been sucked into the crop top frenzy…and damn proud of it. I cut an old shirt that I very rarely wear and this is what I came up with. I’m thinking to cut more of my old shirts to make my own crop top. I’m not sure if i’m quite ready to wear this in public just yet, but who knows. Only time will tell. I paired it with my favorite jeans from Forever 21 and my favorite pumps.

yes ladies i have on a crop top and my tummy is showing, its not the end of the world! You gotta love and accept yourself first, before we can expect others to love us.

Belts, Skinny, Jeans and Tucked in Shirts

So in the midst of massive bordem last night I decided to play dress up! You may recall i said i’m experimenting with tucking my shirt in my jeans/shorts! I experimented Saturday i wore a white t-shirt with this jeans and my sandals. I liked the look so much i tried it again. and this time i tossed on my favorite pumps my favorite bag and this is what you get. Surprisingly to me, i didn’t think I would like these Ashley Stewart jeans, I’m not a fan of them cause usually the rise on the jeans are so long and are really annoying and unflattering to me, but it works for this look! what do you think????

I am loving this look sooooo much right now. I feel chic and I feel SUPA fierce!

Shirt, Belt-Lane Bryant
Jeans-Ashley Stewart
Shoes- Shoeland
Bag- Thrifted
Jewelry- H&M, Forever 21, thrifted

So in February (the 12th to be exact) I turned 21 *CLAP CLAP CLAP* So of course the only thing I know how to do is celebrate in style.

It was definitely a grown and sexy night.

What I loved most was that I have been losing weight lately so I felt even more confident in the dress.
