Getting In To The Holiday Spirit With Curve Girl

There is just something about sequins that enhance a look and make it a tad more festive and this gorgeous sequined beauty from Curve Girl has me feeling holly & jolly for this Holiday season!

What I love about this dress is that the gold and white color combo just scream timeless style to me! I also love the whole length sleeve that’s also embellished with sequins. The length of this dress is absolutely perfect for me even at my petite 5’1 height, the hem falls just at the knee and don’t even get me started on how hard it is to find a dress that falls perfectly at the knee when you are so short lol!

I have to throw in as well: when I’ve worn sequined garments before I’ve had to deal with the little itchy strings underneath because the garment just wasn’t lined or finished properly. With this dress I didn’t have a single issue like that, comfortable to wear and no little strings on the inside to drive ya crazy!!

Another feature I love is how light weight this dress happens to be; I’ve worn full sequined outfits and sometimes those babies can get HEAVY to wear, especially if you are out and about on the town with friends so I absolutely loved that it felt like I was wearing a simple T-shirt dress. I was bummed to find the back of the dress didn’t hold any embellishments but when wearing a coat or sitting down the extra embellishments could have caused snagging and catching so I can understand why they didn’t carry the design over to the back.

I can’t wait to style this beauty over and over again! Let’s face it – every woman needs that stunning show stopping piece and this little dress just happens to fit that bill in an understated way!

CurveGirl Review: Cropped Comfort Romper

I have to tell you Loves of my new obsession! The CurveGirl Cropped Comfort romper is a literal dream; from the harem style pants, to the three quarter sleeves, to the easy snap in the back that made getting in and out of this baby a piece of cake!

Did I mention that this black beauty has pockets? Yup, nice big pockets that fit my iPhone. I also loved the lower scooped neckline – when combined with the strap and snap in the back it made this one piece easy to get in and out of but still looked stylish. I love function-able fashion 😉

Now, I will say that I’m a petite 5’1 so the hem of the pants ended up being not so cropped for me but with the fall weather upon us I was actually happy of this fact because it made it warmer to wear and still lite enough to not need a jacket.

Now for the styling portion; I decided to keep things minimal and simple to match the effortless design of the romper, when styling I accessorized with a pair of Lane Bryant sunnies, silver and turquoise accent jewelry and added the blue heels to coordinate with my jewelry. Combined with a messy bun and nude lip I was able to accomplish a stylish and chic look for a lunch out with the girls in no time!

Playful Promises x Gabi Fresh: Review

Feminine with a touch of strength. I absolutely loved my two pieces from the recent Gabi Fresh x Playful Promises collaboration. In these shots I’m wearing the high waisted pink thong and the Morgan harness.

In honor of being so close to Halloween I decided to get a little witchy with this Boudoir set!

Now for the details:

The sizes range from US 12-24, bra sizes 36-38B, 40-44 C-I. The high waisted thong I’m wearing is a size 20 and fit perfectly! The delicate lace edge rested exactly where it should have, the high waisted detail was perfect to wear under the harness and I loved the high waisted retro feel to it!

Shop this Collection here: Playful Promises

Now for my favorite piece! The beautiful Gabi Fresh Morgan harness! This strappy wonder was gorgeous on but when shooting was a pain to keep all those straps straight, the added detail of the collar at the top was a favorite feature for me. That sexy line peeking out from navel to neck was just fabulous and made me feel uber sexy. The hooks in the back made it easy to get on by myself and the adjustable straps made sure everything fit perfectly.

I also loved the garter feature, being able to snap on to a pair of thigh highs definitely takes this look from ultra sexy to ultra sultry in .2 seconds!

If you see something you Love, don’t wait! I have a feeling the pieces won’t last long!

Wardrobe Remix: Three Looks, One Item – Universal Standard White Tee

A white shirt is truly a wardrobe staple in closets everywhere. From spending time with the family at the park to the foundation of your professional office wear the white T-shirt is appropriate in almost any situation!

So on this wardrobe remix we will be taking a look at the basic white tee from Universal Standard – as with any white shirt the possibilities can be limitless in this case I chose three looks that fit with the upcoming Fall weather.

The first styled look is a bit of causal day wear snazzed up with a pair of faux snakeskin heels, open sweater, black belt and electric blue capris. Keeping the accessories to a minimum I just wore my Michael Kors sunglasses and a pair of plain stud earrings.

What I love about this look is the subtle boldness to it! These electric blue leggings really can take center stage so to make sure the shirt was still the center of my look I made sure to belt it over and pull the hem as far down as I could to give it a more tunic feel. One of the plus sides of being petite is that regular shirts can appear to be tunic-ish but what I loved about this shirt was that the fit was excellent and I was still able to give the appearance of a longer shirt without having to stretch anything out.

The second styled look is a what I like to call the “family day” look; as a mom of a toddler getting dressed to the nines isn’t always an option and sometimes it just doesn’t fit with what activities we have planned for the day. So what to do when you want to stay stylish but comfortable? My go to is a T-shirt and jeans so what better combo for the pumpkin patch? This look is comprised of regular blue jeans, my husband’s flannel shirt and a simple pair of flats.

With this look I was still able to chase my daughter around comfortably and yet still feel attractive and confident in my outfit. It’s important to me as a Mom to make sure that I feel confident in my clothes but am still able to chase after my rambunctious little one so incorporating strong foundation pieces like this shirt, that make me feel fabulous, is a must!

The third styled look is more for an evening outing; paired with faux fur jacket, platform heels, and body hugging pencil skirt. By keeping the accessories simple I’ve made sure my outfit is the center of focus. I used a ponytail to give the shirt a little texture and an off to the side look. With the jacket or without it’s a sassy look that I had so much fun rocking!

Well Loves, that’s the new Wardrobe Remix! Thank you Universal Standard for sending this shirt and until next time!

Oh my Loves, I am so excited to be starting this new tradition on my blog!

The first brand in this category we will kick off with is one of my favorites that I have personally shopped for YEARS! TORRID!

 

There is just something so vibrant about wearing Mustard yellow; it could be because I’m so pail, or it sets off my red hair fabulously, or the fact it’s just a fun color but these Mustard Shorts are bold and fun! The coral tank was a nice touch for this summer shoot and I loved mixing these bold colors for this fun and flirty look!
