Vintage Skirt 2 for 1...cont'd







so if you saw the last post, this is the second outfit i thought about. yes i do have on a strapless bra as a top. that's cause I couldnt find my tube top. I probably would wear a tube top, or a very fitted t-shirt with the skirt. But i can't tell you how much fun i had taking these pictures. I felt sexy, i felt young...just all around sultry.

what I didnt mention in the last post is that the skirt is originally from the Avenue. I'm not a huge fan of the Avenue but every now and again they have some things that catch my eye. The sandals are from areosole. they were a gift given to me but a lady from my church. I havent worn them in so long, and I forgot how comfortable they are. and at the last minute i found this cute pin that says JAZZ i forgot where I found it, but i know my mom used to wear it!

Vintage Skirt 2 for 1









First Happy Monday to everyone. Today was a rather lazy laid back kind of day. I didnt do much. But throughout the day I kept thinking of new outfits that I want to wear. I'm working on getting more summer dresses. and after laying around and thinking and thinking I thought bout this skirt my mother gave me. I've only worn in a couple times because it is ENTIRELY to big for me. It's a size 26 and I wear 16/18 soooo yeah. even though its to big, too cute, it has an adorable but simple design at the bottom.

the skirt is suppose to stop mid-calf but the few times i've worn the skirt i it pull up far enough so that it stops at my knees. and it forces me to wear a bunch of safety pins in order to hold it up. But it is so worth it cause the skirt is to adorable. but on to the outfits!

In this post I made the skirt into a mini dress. It sits mid-thigh and is super flowy and fun. I debate as to whether or not to place the belt at my waste, or below the bra line. and after toiling with it in the mirror, as you can tell i choose to go with the bra line. usually the baby doll look doesnt work for me. But this time around, I'm kind of digging it.

Printed Crop tops & Combat boots









It's been a few days since my last post. and I hope you all got a chance to read my previous post about wanting to make my blog better. And one comment I got was to show more of the detail in my outfits. So I'm making an attempt to oblige. As you guys can tell i am in yet another crop top, I'm getting so use to it now. Yay me!

This outfit I wore out with the girls the other night. First we went to the NJ State Fair then hit the streets of NYC! I didnt want to be to over dress cause I mean who goes to a fair in club attire.(although i've seen females do that)  But I also wanted to still be sexy. So i threw on the leggings, the crop top and the combat boots. It was the perfect outfit cause I was still laid back, but boy was I feelin myself lol! and turned a few heads doing it!

Leggings- dd's discount

Thick Girls can wear crop tops








So i did it today you guys. I was in public wearing a homemade crop top. I spent most of my time window shopping at the mall. I was SUPA scared and self conscience would be a total understandment. but I got through it and felt pretty good. I know for a fact people were staring at me, and thinking "what the hell is this girl wearing" and it did bother me to an extent, but I got over it. I kept my head held high and kept thinking to myself  I look good and I feel good... that is all that matters.

But I would be lying if I said i almost didn't go through with it. part of my, before I left the wanted to cover up my stomach. But i wouldn't have felt right if I punked out. I spend so much time on both my blogs telling my followers to love themselves and not care what the public has to say about what they have on, I would be a hypocrite if don't practice what I preach. at the end of the day I did it! and it was awesome.

The shirt I got from goodwill, which I basically tucked into my bra to make a crop top, my skirt is from Old Navy, sandals are from shoeland and my bag is from Nine West. I threw on some much need assessories, with my fun new sunglasses.

Thick girls with their stomachs out...UNITE!!!

In case you don't notice, I am feeling myself something serious. It's summer time which means its time for the legs to come out, along with my friend mrs. tummy lol last night I was thinking what outfit can i put together that is more laid back. and this is what I came up with. The shirt, I love. I got it from goodwill (check my previous post) and it says "Pippen aint easy" basketball fans get it lol I paired with these shorts, which you all have seen me wear before. I added on my graffiti belt and pumas...with these oh so fly glass...yea im feelin all of myself lol

Latest thrifted finds

so me and the bestie went to Goodwill on last week friday. I had a pretty awesome time. cause who doesn't like shopping with their bestie and on top of that I found some great stuff! I'm getting better at find great things at goodwill. now I'm on the hunt for more cute thrift stores

T-shirt is so freakin awesome. I did cut to have it off the shoulder look

Dockers shorts! real comfortable

two fabulous skirts. I have to hem them so they stop mid thigh

the cutest wristlet originally from New York & Co.

yet another Ralph Lauren Polo button up.
so ready for the next round of playing dress up

Thigh High







My time as a blogger, both on here and tumblr I have come across many thick women who have so much confidence in themselves. Which allows me to help work on my confidence. So i entitled this post Thigh High for a reason. I am in love with my legs particularly my thighs. that is why in a lot of my post i'm wearing shorts, skirts or short dresses. It took some time to get to this point in my life, and I would be lying if I said that I don't have my days when I still get a little insecure, but I'm so in love with myself now.

I haven't always been like this. when i was in high school I swore up and down that I was going to get lipo suction on my thighs because they were too big. I was always told, (and even today my mom fusses about my legs) i cant wear certain things cause i have to much thigh. but now honey please i live in anything tight and short.

And I don't mean this in a cocky sort of way, but I just felt the need to open up about this. On my tumblr I get a lot of messages from other ladies saying how they love my confidence, or how they wish they could be as confidence as i am. and it really flatters me, but It's like when I get such positive love from you all, and I'm post my thighs all out like you, i just help but see my confidence skyrocket.
