Sydney: Bra Fit, Try On, and Style Session

Plunge Push Up Bra & The Five Way Convertible Bra

Hey Loves! Back again and this time we are discussing, trying on and having a styling session with SYDNEY!

A new plus size lingerie brand that scours the globe to discover the most unique, size inclusive lingerie — from bralettes and bodysuits to naughty knickers and other goodies — that will elevate your every day (and every night).

Ready to dive in? Great – let’s start with the Plunge Push Up Bra! This red beauty has a gorgeous lace overlay detail that just elevates this bra from not only functional but down right sexy! With this particular bra you’ll want to order two cup sizes down as it tends to run two sizes larger. I’m normally a 42DD so instead I ordered a 42C and it fit phenomenal! The band didn’t dig in and was comfortable, plus was large enough that my fat roll wasn’t fighting it which meant no pinching or squeezing!

Next we have the five in one convertible bra! First I tried this baby as a strapless bra and I have to say the support and lift it provided without the straps was great! I will say that the band was a little snug and I probably would have ordered a size up just for a little more comfortable fit. I loved that this also came with the clear straps – even more styling options with these!

Social Distancing Distraction: Repurposing Fashion; Wardrobe Repeats Please!

Hey Loves! So I’ve got a confession to make… I am an outfit repeater! Yup, I said it and own it proudly lol. In a society of “one and done” media looks it can be easy to disregard an outfit once it’s been “gramed” (you know posted on social media like Instagram and what not). Well, I’m not the type to throw something away just because I’ve worn it once – I’ve become a pro at restyling and changing up the looks of garments – so today, I wanted to to share some of my tricks with you all!

I’ll show you how to take this dress and make it into…
This!

My process: once I’ve worn something at least three times I’m ready to change it up – style wise or completely altering a garment. As someone who doesn’t gravitate towards white I decided to alter this baby!

First up is fabric dye – I like using RIT Dye Easy to use, easy directions and step by step instructions, and I always get the color I’m looking for.

Once you’ve got it all dyed you can leave it as is, like the image below…

Still a gorgeous dress, now in a sunny yellow, and I loved shooting it this way buuuuut I wanted to take it another step further and turned this dress in to a crop top with matching skirt and it turned out beautifully!

So to achieve this two piece look I grabbed my fabric scissors and cut straight through the seam that connected the bodice of the dress to the skirt. I had to be extra careful when cutting due to the liner, once cut I pinned my hem on the top and the skirt, then hand sewed the new hems with the liner on the top and the skirt and voila!! A gorgeous new set to romp around in.

Until next time Loves! As always thank you for the support and please feel free to leave a comment on what other content you’d like to see while we’re practicing social distance!

Wardrobe Remix With Pretty Little Thing: White Jumpsuit Styled Three Ways

Hey Loves! Back again with a brand new wardrobe remix! In this edition of wardrobe remix I’m styling this gorgeous jumpsuit with puff sleeves from Pretty Little Thing! But first let’s talk about this gorgeous retro vibin one piece: as a petite woman (5’1) the length of the legs was waaay to much for me so I ended up having to cuff the hem, the fabric itself is comfortable with lots of give so I was never feeling like a stuffed sausage in this baby, not once was I scratching or itching because of uncomfortable fabric or liners and surprisingly the fabric was pretty lightweight so I wasn’t sweltering in it either, the plunging neckline was a blast to play with and it fit phenomenally around my middle.

Now let’s talks styling; with the plunging neckline I knew that any way I styled this look the lingerie underneath was going to show, so I did a little research and found Brassy Bra (boob tape) to create this glowing cleavage!

The first way I styled this jumpsuit was with a body chain that disappeared beneath the fabric giving that vavavoom sexy appeal I love oh so much, I added bright and colorful heels to off play so much white and a fun bright lip that matched my heels to livin up this look!

The second way I styled this look was by putting a little retro spin on it! First I adjusted the length of the sleeve and made it three quarters. I then went with a high ponytail, vintage looking cat eye bejeweled sunglasses, and a polka dot belt with the cutest bow in the back. I ended this look with a pair of edgy black and white heels, red earrings that matched my lipstick, and a vintage black hand bag.

The final way I styled this look was coordinating accessories and makeup: I used a powerful red lip that I matched my earrings, collar, sunglasses, toe nail polish, and clutch to. Clear heels kept the focus on my red accents. I also once again adjusted the sleeve length to just above the wrists on my forearm.

A few styling notes; I wanted to add that any jacket, cropped sweater/shrug, or shoulder wrap will also drastically change the look of this jumpsuit, with it being warmer weather I stuck with warmer looks this time. Also with how much room there is in the fabric of the legs of this jumpsuit it would be super easy to temporarily change the length of the legs by using fabric tape or hemming tape and changing the length of the legs to shorts or Capri length, then when done remove tape and BAM you still have your full length jumpsuit.

Until next time Loves,

Plus Size Fashion: Style Session with Part & Parcel

Hey Loves! Back again and this time I’m styling four garments from Part & Parcel; I’ll discuss fit and fabric plus the details of each styled look.

Below are the product shots of each item sent, and then we’ll get in to each look 😉

“Dimensional” sweater

Long Sleeve Tunic

The Plaid Trousers

And The Refined Jogger

Like what you see already and want to get shopping: Click Here

All right My Loves let’s dive in to Look One with the Dimensional Sweater:

I chose to pair this sweater with a pair of blue leggings and blue winter boots trimmed with white – the perfect Mom outfit for running errands around with the little one. This is the perfect outfit for comfort and chic by pairing with boots and leggings, not to mention easy to throw together with minimal effort but the result is Mom-chic cute!

Now, I have to say Look Two is my FAVORITE!! The Plaid Trouser is to DIE FOR! I love the amazing purple hues of the plaid, I love how well tailored the trousers felt on, and I loved how deep the pockets are making them functional – Mama loves a good pocket.

I chose to pair this look with a black crop top, fuzzy winter jacket, and a pair of black heels. By choosing to pair the trousers with muted colors, like black, the eye is immediately caught by that gorgeous purple!

Look Three is also a fun more bold look using The jogger Pant! Now as a petite babe I have to be careful with “jogger/harem” style pants because the extra fabric in the design paired with short legs I can sometimes get swamped down by that extra fabric around the ankles and the effect is less than pleasing – to say the least lol it throws off my proportions and looks wonky. Not the case here!!

I chose to pair this amazing pant with a a fitted black tank, a cropped white long sleeve tie top, black leather jacket and a pair of brown chunky booties.

And last, but certainly not least The Long Sleeve Tunic: this top is uber comfortable AND fit fabulously! There was no squeezing my bigger arms in to the sleeves so that meant not having to size up in the top.

I paired this look with distressed denim shorts, mule flats, oversized sunglasses and a red purse that matched my lipstick. With the two bolder looks above I wanted to show my Mom side again: this top is comfortable, has a very classic yet professional look, has amazing room for chasing my toddler, still casual yet chic – this is one of those looks that takes two minutes to throw together and leaves you looking fabulous and ready for whatever the day has in store.

Here’s a fun style session video discussing fit, fabric, and styling!
