ATGC on the Scene; Dermasilk Event

Hey Loves,

I haven't done an ATGC on the Scene post in some time. So the other day I had the chance to attend the launch event for Dermasilk. They offer some new skin care products for all ages. It was held at the Alexandria Center, which is absolutely beautiful. I love going to events like these, you get to look at the product up close & personal. You get to try it on. You mix & mingle, you eat & you drink. What more can you ask for. Check out the rest of the pics below.

Some VERY stylish attendees!

Hope you liked the pictures. Until next time loves.


Dress with no Shape

henrik vibskov tunic

Hey Loves,

I know ya'll are like..."dress with no shape" lol This tunic worn as a dress you all have seen plenty of times before, but I've always worn it differently. I wore this dress last fall for the Torrid preview, for my birthday and the other day while I headed out to hang with my blogger boos and Simply be to check out their fall/holiday collection. I wanted to go casual/cute trying to look "effortless"  Shapeless dresses can be a bit hard for the plus size girl to pull off. But it can be done. It's all about balance. I hope I pulled it off. oh & NO I'm not pregnant!

Weekend Wear

Hey Loves,

This is just a quick post. I know a lot of you knew that Curves Rock Weekend took place this weekend. I usually don't attend, so this week I wanted to lay low. I ran some errands and took care of somethings at church. But I've had this outfit idea on my brain for quite some time but didn't have all the pieces to shoot this look. So when A'GACI contacted to me to review a few of their plus size pieces, I jumped on this harem jumpsuit. And I've seen both Gabi & Nadia wear different versions of this look, so I figured what a perfect time to shoot this look.

Hey Loves,

It was finally a nice day without rain. I threw on one of my favorite sun dress that I bought from Old Navy like 2 years ago. It's always a go to of mine when I need a nice dress that isn't to hot. I mean that is what a sun dress is for right? lol
