Four Favorite Foundations



Hey Loves,


I have to be honest, I'm coming into this makeup game super late. I never use to wear makeup, and if I did it was nothing more than lame eyeshadow and a REALLY bad eyeliner job. Even in my early years of blogging I NEVER wore makeup. Sometimes when I look back at my old post, I'm like OH GOD!!!! But the more I got into blogging I realized makeup is a must. It's about pulling my whole look together. My collection is growing. So for this post I listed my 4 favorite foundations.

ATGC on the Scene; Theirry Lasry Collection Viewing

Hey Loves,


If you follow me on instagram (@thickgrlscloset) sideeye at you if you don't, you know this past Saturday I had the awesome privilege to attend the the viewing of the new collab between Thierry Lasry & Elegant Eyes Inc. Elegant Eyes is a New Jersey based eye wear company that has been family owned for almost 30 years. They offer everything from prescription glasses, stylish sunglasses & everything in between. So when I got the invite to attend the private viewing of the new Thierry Lasry collection, I couldn't resist.

All Charlotte Russe Plus

 Hey Loves,


I couldn't wait to post this outfit. I was feeling myself something serious. I guess new clothes, curly hair & bright lipstick will do that to you lol. As you know, I posted on my blog about the new plus size line from Charlotte Russe. So I made a trip to my nearest Charlotte Russe that carries the plus line (Newport Center Mall for my loves in Jersey) I wasn't sure what look I was going for until I started to look around and this boho chic/sexy look came together in the store.

Weekend Wear

Hey Loves,
So this is a super quick post. On Sunday I was meeting up with some friends from church to grab lunch and discuss some plans we have for the summer. I wanted to throw on something super casual but still polished. And I also wanted a reason to wear this amazing carry all bag I found at Forever 21. It matched perfectly with these slip on sneakers from Justfab. My simple weekend wear.

My Interaction with a Positive Curvy Girl


Hey Loves,

I have to say I'm beaming with such excitement as I write this. Yesterday at work a customer was trying on some clothes from Vince Camuto, Michael Kors, DKNYC & Ivanka Trump. When she cam out of the dressing room, I got instantly excited because she looked GREAT. I think what excited me the most was that she was a super confident curvy woman who chose not only chic pieces but very bold and she wore them so well. For me as a blogger, It does my heart good to see a young woman where great clothing, and where it well.

Sweat N' Style Class 2015


Hey Loves,


I'm quite excited for this announcement. I will be having my Sweat N' Style class again this year YYYYYAAAAAYYYY! My Sweat N' Style class is my celebration of my 4 years of blogging. And I'm so proud to announce that it is sponsored by Lane Bryant & their new Livi Active Line. You all know I have raved about the clothes from the Livi Active line. I have an amazing Zumba instructor coming in to give a good sweat. I've taken her class at the YMCA in Montclair, and she is absolutely phenomenal.


I'm sure you're wondering why it's called Sweat N' Style. It's simple, you all know I like a good workout outfit, so for Sweat N' Style, come in your best workout clothes & come sweat it out with me. You won't be disappointed.

Admission is simply 2 non-perishable goods (canned goods or boxed pasta etc.) All of the donations will go to St. Mark's United Methodist Church Food Pantry. My mother is an active member of this ministry at church and I thought this would be something to help the ministry. Our food pantry operates every 2nd & 4th Saturday each month and feeds in the ballpark of 35-40 families within the Montclair community.

It's going to be a GREAT time. Thank you to the people over at Lane Bryant for all their help. See you guys on the 11th.
