These jeans size 12W-32W fit sooooo comfortable and come in so many shades. Note they have a very skinny ankles. There is stretch and I’m 5’8 3/4 and they were the perfect length. I’m wearing a size 20.
Small Space, no problem! I took a corner of a room and carved out a personalized mom cave/beauty corner. I was so discouraged and stopped making videos because I didn’t have a designated beauty room. I moved last year and felt I would never fully unpack get settled and mesh my life together. One day I just decided I was being silly to think I had to have some huge space or designer room to do a simple YouTube video. I’m not a guru and it’s not necessary for me to have the same space as a YouTube guru. I personalized a corner in front of a big window that gives off more light than any ring light could. I picked up some favorite things to add to some old favs and before I knew it I had a Beauty Corner and was creating content for my YouTube channel again.

Everyone should have a fabulous pair of color denim for the summer. I do not stop wearing denim just because it’s summer. I instead opt for lighter jeans. These distressed skinny legs are so perfect. They are from Roamans and come in 3 beautiful colors, I’m wearing pastel orchid they also offer soft seafoam and pineapple sorbet. Yummmmm and they are just as delicious looking as the names. These colors look soooo gorgeous on dark skin. I paired it with this mauve ruffle one shoulder, forever 21 kimono and my buffalo exchange clutch bag. This will absolutely be on my summer vacation outfit rotation. I feel casual, chic and comfortable.
These jeans were so festive and adorable for today’s holiday and to celebrate the upcoming holidays as well. The stars are strategically placed perfectly. They immediately caught my eye on the www.fullbeauty.com site. You will love how the legs become skinny and have the very fine frayed hem at the bottom. These jeans do have good stretch. I already had this white top which is actually a swimsuits for all top. It’s very thin and light weight. I suggest sizing up at least 2 full sizes so it’s swingy and roomy over your swimsuits as well as pairing over shorts, skirts or jeans like I did. I wore a nude bra underneath and it was fine. I’m wearing earrings from Aldo shoes store, scarf from target, shoes from HM and clutch is from Buffalo Exchange Dallas location. Red lipstick is sephora lipstain in 01 red.
Stop thinking you have to be a makeup artist to play in makeup. Makeup 💄 🎨 can be fun if you are a makeup enthusiast like myself. I have told you before I was always in the makeup chair getting beat as a model so I did not pay much attention to makeup. I was basically a foundation and lipstick girl. When I was not working I wore as little as makeup as possible to rest my skin. But the power of YouTube, Instagram and advertisement I have definitely fell in love with makeup in the last few years. Plus makeup keeps improving and getting upgraded. My philosophy to makeup is put on as little or much as you desire as long as you like the way you look. I personally don’t have the skills to duplicate these sophisticated guru applied looks so I just apply my makeup to enhance my features and make myself feel like I’m putting my best face forward. Makeup makes me feel polished when I have somewhere to go important and I want to look nice. Don’t worry about technique, how many steps your taking just do what works for you. Your not in beauty school or on a set, it’s your face do what works for you. Have fun, try new things, use color be bold if you screw up that is why they created makeup wipes.
My first time trying Fashion to Figure skinny Denim, they fit like a glove. I honestly did not think they would fit that well but since I have been having so much luck with this Brand FTF I thought what would it hurt. I purposely selected a “clean” jean. I am going on vacation soon and want to look sleek no distress for this trip, keeping it super simple.
I paired it with a zip down white easy breezy top with a small peblum. My topper is actually a kimono from a 3 piece swim set from GitiOnline. All links below. Also ck out my recent YouTube video to see how I will be making this swim suit kimono be multi purpose.
This is the most versatile shirtdress that I ever had! Nothing more to say but it’s amazing.com It’s called the Kate dress. I suggest sizing up to wear it swingy as well. The proof is in the picture! this dress slays. I have it in black, white and now this pattern. Can we say love at first wear.
I can’t wait to wear this outfit on summer vacation, I just love the way this www.eloquii.com skirt fits my shape. Wearing a size 18. I paired it with a purple metallic plunge swimsuit from Usbohoo.com Match made in purple heaven. This purple swimsuit is a eye catching swimsuit that can perform double duty as a stunning evening dinner look as well. I’m all about stretching your wardrobe outfit options.
Today is April 21, we lost an incredible artist a year ago on this day. Legendary Musician Prince. What better way to honor his talents and contribution to the musical industry than wearing his trademark color purple.
Today’s #psood features a romper in a gorgeous shade of orange from 🍊 Victoria Beckham’s collaboration with Target. Target has been all over these collaborations with designers as of late. I didn’t think I would be happy with my online purchase because of all the size issues women were having. The straight sizes were saying she did not offer size 0 or extra small and Plus sizes were not happy with the generic fit. I figured I would order 1 piece and worst come to worst I could send it back.
My jumper actually was loose, I ordered a 3X assuming it would run small. I could have easily sized down. The fabric was very nice, had stretch and was comfortable. I was really attracted to the scallop detail she added to some of her garments. I’m very happy I was able to get this piece. I will have fun styling it many ways.
The Plus Size #ootd is a great look to try if you are adventurous with trying out some of the new spring trends. Us plus size curvy girls are really lucking out this season with some current styles that the straight size world has. Thanks for including us plus size ladies, we really appreciate being appreciated.
I still scratch the side of my head with the whole overlooking the plus size market on current stylish edgy trends. I have to not scroll social media and take a break because it’s so insulting to be offered clothing that’s a season or 2 behind the straight size market. I can scroll my Instagram feed and see the straight size market killing the fashions and have so many places to shop from. It’s almost like the plus size dollar is not good enough.
That is why I have always been a very creative shopper. I go into low end stores other people turn their nose up to looking for 1 unique treasure. I have always shopped the men’s dept for shirts. I shop the “old lady” clothing catalogs because I totally understand as a plus size woman I have to be super duper open minded to get the style I desire. It takes a lot of mixing, matching, substituting and breaking up items that go together. I basically manipulate my wardrobe and have mastered shopping being plus size. I want to look just as sexy and current as my straight size counterparts. I don’t subscribe to the whole “name brand” designer mentality. Plus size women are outsiders in the couture designers mind. High end designers usually cater to celebrities and popular people. I have been in the plus size business for 25+years and trust me curvy fat women are last on the list. Number 1 reason I learned to celebrate #mystyle. Personally I try to support indie plus size designers and websites like www.fullbeauty.com and www.diaandco.com to name a few who support my curves.
Which brings me to these Celebrity Pink Black Skinny Distressed Denim that fit my body like a comfortable glove. Butter soft, goes over my hump in the back and not tight on the waist. A true skinny ankle. These jeans were sent to me in a www.diaandco.com box. These jeans are off the chain! I will absolutely give you a better look at them on a upcoming post, they deserve their own shine. I know another pair of denim! But denim is a all year round clothing item.
C Today’s plus size #ootd features a black and white stripe dress from Ellos via www.fullbeauty.com I had to have this dress as soon as I seen it on the website. What a perfect spring/summer dress. Church, brunch, vacation, dinner, movie date, family get together, this is the dress. The fabric on this dress is light, not see through but light weight. I only wish they would have added pockets to this dress. I’m digging pockets on everything, especially skirts and dresses.
I ordered this dress in a size 18 and it was too tight. So I reordered and grabbed a 22. I wanted it swingy and not clingy. I love this dress! A pure classic that’s so on trend this season. You really can’t go wrong with black and white anyway but black and white stripes are super good.
See you in the next post, whoa I have so much coming up!
I’m loving the corset look and getting more and more comfortable wearing it. I now understand and totally get the whole waist training phenomenon. You can’t scroll your Instagram feed without seeing the waist training posts but waist training professional corsets are a different beast. We are talking fashion corset styles here.
I will admit once you get use to wearing a corset it feels great. I’m very surprised I’m enjoying wearing a corset belt because I am such a huge comfort over snatch kinda girl. My lifestyle demands comfortable clothing but I have found the corset to not be bothersome at all. The more you wear it the more comfortable it gets. You will forget you have it on after a few hours. It sorta molds to your body.
Like I said in my previous “Corset Roundup” post, fashion CORSET style belts are NOT for waist snatching! These corset belts fit like any wide regular belt. I highly suggest buying true to size, if you wear a 22 get a 22-24 belt etc. The 4 back snap red belt in this post is a (set) It came with the black dress I’m wearing. I bought this set from www.bohoo.com You can wear this as a dress but I felt like wearing it under leggings today. Maybe as the weather gets warmer I will wear it as a dress. The dress is really soft and a nice fabric, the belt was just ok. Definitely not as solid and sturdy as the picture advertised. But of course I made it work. I much prefer my previous CORSET belts from my Corset Roundup post.
Again buying your true dress size is best with these corset styles. If it’s worn too tight it will fold, crease and the snap closure will pop.
I would love to find them with a zipper closure, I think that would be a much easier style for plus curvy women.
