The wonderful folks at Modcloth asked me to style this cute little dress. It’s the committee celebration dress and it’s one of their more popular dresses. It comes in a variety of colors as well. I had to add a few other item and this is what my mind came up with. I mean who doesn’t want to look cute right?
How would you style this cute dress from ModCloth?
So when I got the invite to attend the Vines of the Mind, I was kinda of torn on what to wear. But after having walked in the fashion show for Sofistafunk, my choice was already made. I had the pleasure of rocking this skirt for the fashion, that I just had to have it for my outting. Be sure to check out the post after this for my recap on Vine of the Mind fashion show.
Stay tuned for pics and my write on the Vines of the Mind Fashion show. Until next time my loves.
How many of us hate when mother nature forces us to wear items of clothing that just totally clashes with our oh so great outfits. My issue i when it rains. I do love the rain boots I already have, however they just don’t work when I’m heading to work in a great skirt and top and I have on rain boots with rainbow peace signs on them lol I know you all know what I mean.
Henry Ferrera already offers great options in footwear for men and women. But he took on the idea of re-working how we wear rain boots. Being in NJ and frequently working and walking around the city of NY I have seen many people wearing these adorable ankle rain boots. So you know I went on the hunt to find out all I can about them.
It’s time we bridge the gap between from fashion and function. What do you all think? Until next time.
Until next time ladies
A lot of ladies always ask me where do I get my inspiration from. And a lot of times I just scratch the surface. But to be honest I grab my inspiration from so many places. Of course other blogs dedicated to curvy women. Tumblr (i mean who doesn’t get inspired by Tumblr), fashion magazines, but really my inspiration is very much stereotypical. A lot of it comes from celebrities and models (yup straight size women). some of my favorite fashion icons are Rihanna, Cassie, Zoe Saldana, and Solange, just to name a few. When ever I see them in something that I like, I go into shopping mode. I either end up at the mall or I go shopping in my closet because I’m trying to find my own spin on what they have.
Clearly you all know I’m gonna find the budget friendly version, and tweaking it to fit my body. I look at women like Chanel Iman and salivate…not cause I wanna be her body size, but cause 9 times out of 10 I want the bag on her arm or the shoes on her feet.
I do follow quite a few straight size fashion blogs, because I am infatuated with how these women put outfits together. You all know I don’t let my body dictate what I wear. I’m always trying something different. I think that’s what fashion means to me. Being inspired, feeling good in what you’re wearing.
I spend a lot of time cruising different blogs just to see what other woman are wearing, to see what’s in (of course). And naturally I do a lot of online window shopping . One cause most of the time I’m broke lol but places will put together looks as advertisements for different items, and what ever catches my eye, I make a point to recreate.
So all in all my inspirations comes from all over. like most you, but I figured I would answer all the questions in one shot!
Where do you get your inspiration?
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!!!
So I know you all are wondering. I have an interview for a media agency on Thursday, and I don’t believe in following the typical standards for going to inteviews. I don’t want to be in a boring gray or black suit. I like to have fun and feel great in what ever I have on. So THANK GOD for things like Polyvore, because the ideas that run wild in my mind, allow me to play virtual dress up. When I was at the gym, this is what I came up with. An aline skirt, a simple white button up, a navy blue blazer, leopard print belt black wedges and a blue bag.
Now of course you know I would want to find the cheaper versions of all of these. buuuuut you get the point. So I will be trying my best to put this outfit together. I am on the hunt for pretty much all of these items.
But about my interview….I will be interviewing for Zenith Media, they do mostly media buying and what not. And deal with a lot of big name brands. They have a 3 month rotaional training program, with a possibility of job placement after the program. I really want this. I pray to God this comes through for me. Lord knows I need this. This could help me career wise as well as help the blog.
So what do you think?
So I was cruising the blogs and I saw a Dorothy Perkins post on Stylish Curves, and I as i was looking through the dresses on the website, I saw this great Ponte Dress. If I could afford it I would so buy and this is the idea of an outfit that I had in mind. I love that the dress is very simple. Not much to it. But this is when we can great creative. I do believe that not everything has to match. as long as it “goes together” I say wear.
And in case you haven’t noticed I love color. Part of me wanted to put a colored belt on but I felt like that was to much witht the shoes and bag. Maybe if I was doing all black shoes and bag then a colored belt would be perfect….(but i digress)
Im really into spiked jewelry. I’m planning to do a couple DIY earrings. I figure it will be super easy, but will make a world of a difference. The ring when i saw in online I just had to add to the outfit. I can’t afford it but its nice to look. Right?
And the lipstick, as a women of color, for the longest time I was afraid of colored lipstick, but recently I have been rockin my pink and red lipstick, and I want to get really daring with this color.
Welp hope you guys like it! If i had the money I would so do an outfit post for this lol love you guys
