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.

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.

Wet N Wild Lippies

Hey loves,

If you follow me on instagram or you watched my Beauty Haul youtube video you would know I have a growing obsession with Wet N Wild Lipsticks. Well lipsticks in general, I find myself buying a new lip color every week. But I love that Wet N Wild is so pigmented but affordable. Can't beat that.

Wearing Kiyonna to Church

Kiyonna dresses
Hey Loves,

Now if you follow me on Instagram you would know that I did have this Kiyonna dress for sale. It was given to me back in the summer time after the swap & shop I was a part of. It sat in my closet with the tag still on. I honestly had to intention of wearing it. But I was heading to church this morning and when I threw it on to see how it looked, I was like why haven't I worn this before. With trying out my new Yummie by Heather Thomson shapewear, this dress fell perfectly on my body.

ATGC on the Scene; Rafaella Fall 2014 Preview

Hey Loves,

The great people over at Rafaella gave me the opportunity to check out their fall 2014 collection. I like to always see what they produce because it is something out of my "blogger box" Rafaella creates a more mature, conservative but still on trend clothing. What I also like about Rafaella is that they are really starting to make a point to reach the plus size consumer with quality pieces they will become staples in your closet.

American Apparel & Plus Size

Hey Loves,
I get asked this question a lot. So I figured I would address it finally. I am an avid American Apparel shopper. I own 3 pairs of disco pants and a pair of leggings. Now let me be clear these pants DO NOT come in plus size. They only go up to an xl and if AA goes up to a 2xl its only in basic things like t-shirt and camis.  However the xl disco pants and the large & xl leggings can stretch to a certain degree.
