My City Chic Boyfriend Jeans

plus size boyfriend jeans
Hey Loves,

This post will serve as a double whammy. 1st to review these amazing boyfriend jeans sent to me by the great people over at City Chic. And as a "Splurge vs. Save" Campaign sponsored by Credit Card Insider. The point of that is to pick an designer item that I love but obviously can't afford, but was able to find something similar for a cheaper price. When I thought about it, these Shoedazzle shoes came to mind.

Classic TV Moms

Hey Loves,

I have been dying to wear this t-shirt since I got it in the mail. I have styled so many ways and nothing tickled my fancy until I was getting dressed to attend the Essence Magazine & Pantene Curly Q's Straight talk panel discussion. I wanted something casual but a head turner. And we all know that Claire Huxtable & Vivian Banks are 2 OF THE BEST tv moms ever.

Talking About my Skin

Hey Loves,

In an effort to be more open about me and my life outside of fashion I'm trying new avenues to connect with you all. I have to say this will be quite embarrassing to talk about. But maybe you all might have some opinions or recommendations. So one thing you may or may not know about me is that I have suffered from acne since I was about 12. Which is nothing new, I mean a lot of people get acne during puberty. But acne managed to follow me into adulthood. I don't get serious breaks out now, but what I am left with is serious acne scars, MAJOR Hyperpigmentation, and ingrown hairs. The ingrown hairs are what I find to be the worst. My tweezers have become my best friend.

Keeping it Casual

Hey Loves,

On Friday I met up with a friend of mine for an after work drink. I was with the guy for most of the week so I only had a few options for clothes. But what I did put together I absolutely love. I'm this kick of forcing myself to ACTUALLY wear more pants. So far it's working out. But I can't make any promises once it really gets warm lol

My Sunday Best

Isabel Toledo Tulip Dress and peplum jacket
Hey Loves,

I hope you had a wonderful Easter Sunday. I know I did. I don't know about you guys but when Easter comes around, it's all about spring colors and crisp whites. So when I received this Tulip Dress with the matching Peplum Jacket by Isabel Toledo dress in the mail, I knew I would be looking sharp in church on Easter Sunday.

Plus Size and Chic in Black

plus size women in all black
Hey Loves,

If you saw my last post, I had an AMAZING time at the Monif C My Beach is Better event. I had a rather long day, but I wanted to be cute & casual. I figure some all black with a bit of color would be good. So I pulled a few of my faves and this is what I came up with.

ATGC on the the Scene; Monif C Swimsuit Preview

Monif C bathing suits
Hey Loves,

April is a crazy month for me. But one event that I have been looking forward to is Monif C's swimsuit preview. You all know how much I love her as a designer and when I got the invite I knew I had to be there. The event was appropriately named My Beach is Better and honey with all the plus size/curvy women rocking some sexy bathing suits, the world better watch out.
