It’s Monday and back to business in my home. The house is bustling trying to get my children off to school and me out the door. I don’t have time to put tremendous effort into my outfit so dressing stylish and quickly is my answer to a stress free morning. Here is a perfect professional look. As ambassador for www.FullBeauty.com I selected this soft cozy looking grey oversized sweater from Denim 24/7 thinking I would wear it as pictured on site for more of a date or weekend brunch look. However when it arrived I could only see it worn as pictured on the model if I held it up with my hands. I was not able to wear it off the shoulder, the neck opening did not have the elasticity to achieve a off the shoulder look. I decided to wear the cowl neck around my neck as a scarf, it falls really nice and still gives you breathing room. I’m wearing a size 1X (22/24). Overall though not an intentional work outfit it did turn out to be a great work style or more of a chic upscale casualI look. I’m looking forward to wearing this when it cools off in Texas. My hot pink pants link below. Wearing size 18.
Enjoying styling 1 of my favorite colors GREY. Grey is what I call that “It Color” it’s basically a nuetral. Just as classic as black or white and always appropriate. You never have to worry if your too loud or wearing the wrong color with Grey. In the next 7 days I will talk about each piece I’m wearing, their fit. Let me say a few words about this relaxed pant I’m wearing. Most plus size women wouldn’t look twice at this pant, it might be considered a grandma pant or old fashioned plus size style. But what I discovered is this is the perfect pant for a women with a large stomach. It disguises the belly, and I found it is the master pant for wearing bodysuits and crop tops with. I was so excited I wanted to order every color but they only come in grey and black. I am wearing the 18/20. Runs true to size. When I find this style again I will be purchasing every color. I did not start out including these pants in so many looks but I found myself wanting to be comfortable. I’m all about comfort and these little ol pants can be dressed down or amped up as you can see in the next few days or follow my Instagram @TheShoppingSlayer.com
PANTS fit true to size, wearing a 18/20, DUSTER runs big, wearing a 1X, TUBE TOP runs small (wearing a 3X)
All Shirt Dresses seen in this post are from www.fullbeauty.com They range in size 14W-30W and Medium-5X. Yes! True Woman sized clothing designed for fuller frames. I spotted an article on Shirt Dressing awhile back and ripped the picture out because I wanted to explore this look. I tried my 1st Shirt Dress and fell in love and have become addicted. I always thought a Shirt Dress would make me look boxy but just the opposite. Shirt Dresses are very becoming on large frames and come in a multiple of styles, lengths and shapes. In this post I’m wearing a size (20) in all the dresses below, I found they run true to size. Shirt Dresses can be worn fitted to the waist giving an hourglass appearance or belted. I like wearing both belted and unbelted depending my mood. If you have the right Shirt Dress in your correct size it will absolutely accentuate your frame. I think they are ideal for work and as a vacation dress. I find them very versatile. Great with flats, heels, wedges even sneakers. I try to steer away from wearing anything uncomfortable. I’m all about casual chic because of my lifestyle and Shirt Dressing fits in perfectly. Sometimes you just want a loose breezy feel in your clothing not a restricted form fitting look all the time.

Stop Skorting The Issue and face the facts there’s nothing cuter to wear this summer than a SKORT. Yes a comfy pair of shorts with a chic skirt look. How can you go wrong, especially one the right length and your right size (runs size 12W-24W). I love being a part of the www.fullbeauty.com team because they offer true Women Sizes. Not those skimpy shrimpy junior sizes. Putting on clothes that are made for my full figured body feels wonderful. I don’t have to worry if it might fit or try to camaflouge to make a style work for me. I think most plus woman want to look comfortable as well as stylish in their clothing. Sometimes it’s difficult to get that confidence level going in something too tight in all the wrong places. But you won’t have that problem from true woman sized clothing at www.fullbeauty.com The selection of clothing and styles are endless.
This light yellow SKORT is too perfect for words and I top with this PALE BLUSH boyfriend shirt (12W-32W) to play up the subtle color blocking of these two colors. I paired with a pair of old school sneakers because this outfit just gave me a kool easy feeling but trust me this SKORT looks just as adorable with sandals.
I had heard about the V-Steam or as some refer the sitz bath. www.kingspa.com lists it as the V-Steam Herb (Wormwood Steam Sitz) A natural, centuries-old Korean treatment for women. Link here so you can read all about the benefits of this treatment. I just want to tell you briefly about my experience having the V-Steam for the 1st time. Ofcourse Kingspa staff will not let you record. You sit on 1 of those hospital toilets, underneath the opening of the bowl is basically a very hot crock pot filled with herbs of wormwood, Mugwort, Rutin and Dandelion which treats infections and inflammation, plus a few other herbs I never heard of. I’m all for having new experiences especially if they might benefit my health & wellness. I’ve done a blog post on kingspa in the past link here so I’m not going to bother to tell you how delicious the food is, how relaxing & tranquil the spa is etc, etc. I have heard the kingspa in New Jersey is not up to snuff. But I will say the Dallas Texas www.Kingspa.com is clean, safe, kid friendly, secure, staff is pleasant and is a wonderful, uplifting experience. I was able to get my mom to come and she was impressed with the cleanliness and food. She also shared a story with me. My mom told me my grandmother worked in NYC Aldelphi hospital as a X-ray tech when they 1st moved to NYC many moons ago and many celebrities would cone to that hospital for procedures such as sitz baths which I had and colonics. These celebrities you guys admire for their flawless complexions, flat stomachs and fabulous bodies work really hard taking care of their instrument which understandably they should. It’s not all genetics!
Anywho you sit on this bowl naked, they give you a large mumu style garment to put over your head. They surround the back of your chair, arms, body with the mumu and you sit on this bowl for approximately 40 minutes. They also suggest putting the mumu over your face for the steam which some of us did. I really liked doing that the herbs smelled so good to me, I love that woody, nutty smell. It smells just like a tea store and I was thinking the whole time I was doing this I have to start making my loose tea brew again. You are given a church fan to use under the much to fan your crotch if it gets too hot. It took many adjustments to get my temperature bearable. It was burning the inside of my legs and butt I was squirming like a nut. At one point I jumped up. There were 5 of us ladies doing the treatment at the same time. Some were fanning some were ok with the heat. One lady said she gets it for her menstrual cramps. After 40 minutes the ladies got up and went on their spa business but the staff insisted I stay another 15 minutes since she couldn’t get my temperature right. She said I should be able to sit there comfortably without fanning. She said everyone is different. I said to her that I noticed the petite Korean lady never fanned she actually was sitting on the bowl with her legs raised. The staff lady said “And her water was boiling” I was speechless. She said if you can have it done twice a month the more you do it the more benefits I will get. She told us 1 client comes because it helps with her eczema. She said when the woman 1st started taking sitz baths she had prominent sores but they were now clearing up. To make a long story short, I suggest it and I will absolutely get it done again and again. Oh yeah it was only $25.
No recording allowed, quick pic to give you an idea.
There is something so fresh and alluring when you see a woman wearing all white. White is one color that is always appropriate no matter what the occasion. I always turn heads wearing white it just looks lovely on my skin tone. And white on blondes is a knockout, I learned that from modeling. You will always notice blinds and olive skin tones wearing the white outfits. Here I am wearing my favorite off the shoulder top (I recommend sizing up) The white is slighter lighter weight then the denim I have featured in my last two blogpost. Though this top has 3/4 sleeves it’s still very cool and light to wear and perfect for the ladies who don’t like to broadcast their arms. My mom is one of those girls. This top comes in size 12W-32W in colors black,white and denim. I suggest having all these core staple colors in your wardrobe. I am wearing white distressed denim. Though these pants are old I am linking you to a similar pair on www.fullbeauty.com that run size 12W-32W, it is so refreshing to be offered true Woman sizes. If you guys have not checked out www.fullbeauty.com you are missing out on tons of daily coupons, specials and savings. It has become my go to spot for shopping because they carry such a extensive range of Brands.
As usual Beyonce album Lemonade has people talking, speculating, guessing and jumping to conclusions about her and husband Jay Z life. It also set off a Lemonade clothing inspired frenzy. The visuals of that album were so beautiful and Beyonce looked simply stunning walking through the streets carrying a baseball bat in that magnificent layered yellow gown. We all wanted some lemonade inspired clothing in our lives. Here I rounded up some very reasonably priced lemonade inspired plus size clothing from size 1-5X. My lemonade inspired skirt I purchased from . Aliexpress link below. It took about 2yrs for it to arrive. LOL seriously it took so long I forgot I ordered it a month before. I ordered the XXXXL I will say its equivalent to a size 18. I really lucked out, perfect fit for the most part and I was pleased with the skirt overall appearance and quality. It’s a very pretty summery skirt. Of course I paired it with my absolute favorite denim off the shoulder top from www.fullbeauty.com Yes I have worn and featured this top in the last post but it is bomb and I can’t get enough of it.
My absolute favorite Denim off the shoulder top here
This is a sponsored post All opinions are my own
Off The Shoulder Tops and Dresses are all the rage this season. They are perfect for summer days, brunches and dates. My favorite Denim Off The Shoulder top this season is from www.fullbeauty.com Link here
If you guys haven’t checked out www.fullbeauty.com you should stat! It’s a hub of fabulous plus fashion in one spot. The deals are amazing and they are always giving coupons and codes for huge savings. Though I am a style ambassador I still check with them 1st if I’m looking for something in particular. I love getting a item with free shipping or a percentage off. I have saved 40-50% on items. Not just clothing household and men’s wear as well. Full Beauty has become my online mall without the hassle of leaving my home. It Rocks Big time. The shipping is fast they constantly keep you updated on the shipment, arrival time and reward you for shopping with them. Remember I’m still “TheShoppingSlayer” and believe in saving where you can.
This off the shoulder top also comes in white and black and I’m going to pick up one of each. The top runs true to size and gives a slight flare towards the bottom which I just love because it doesn’t cling to your backside. Nothing is more annoying than having to tug a top over your butt. The top also has ties on each wrist giving it a 70’s vibe. But the winning factor in this top is it can be worn a little off the shoulder like I’m sporting or deep off the shoulder and it still looks good. So it’s almost like you can adjust to your mood or style or time of day.

This post I’m featuring these incredible comfortable Women’s Clarks Tri Active High Top from www.fullbeauty.com LINK herewho I work with as a style ambassador. I’m very blessed to pick and try out some new fresh styles and tell you my thoughts. Well this time I wanted to get really down to earth and get something that’s universally relatable for all women. Comfortable Work Shoes especially if you have a job that requires being on your feet for most of the day or lots of walking. Well I found the shoe for us, not only is it stylish and cute it’s designed for walking and has your foot in mind. It runs sizes 5.5M-12M. From my experience wearing this shoe many times it runs true to size, definetly not wide. It’s extremely comfortable and soft. You feel like you are walking on a cloud. The sole is perfect not too high or flat. The shoe keeps it shape which is a plus. Trust me you will feel totally appropriate in any work environment with these babies. The key is in the design, comfort did not sacrifice style. It looks like a sneaker but not an overbearing one that overpowers your clothing. It’s modest and understated. Simply perfection! Here I paired my sneakers with some items to show you just how fashion forward and neat you can look while wearing comfortable sneakers.
Again here is the link to the most perfect sneaker here
I’m just loving how Plus Size Crop Tops are evolving for us curvy girls. www.pinkclubwear.com just gets it! They understand the full figured woman needs options for their curvier figures. Yes we love the belly bearing crops however some of us want to expose just a little tummy. My friends over at PCW understand those of us that desire a little more material, length and coverage to help us pull off this summer fun crop look. I’m excited to bring you girls crop tops that are definetly curvy girl friendly. This light blue polka dot crop top I’m wearing here is probably my favorite out of all the crop tops I was sent by www.pinkclubwear.com it’s so flirty & fun. It can be worn with denim, white denim, skirts and so much more.
The bow is generously cut which is so important. Having a bow that is not to small and the correct size for plus size proportions is key to wearing a bow style blouse. Bows are on trend this season and what’s more fun than polka dots. This top reminds me of fashion from the 50’s something you would see our favorite Hollywood starlets wearing. I can’t wait to wear this top to my co-workers baby shower with a pair of jeans. I’m wearing a size 2X.

I had the pleasure of being an ambassador for FullBeauty and trying this Bra sponsored. This is a good thing because I probably would have never tried a full looking Bra like this ever. It just looked a bit much for me. I feel like a fool to have even thought such a thing. I feel like I have neglected my breast their entire existence and this truly makes me sad. I wore this Bra for approximately 9 hours comfortably. My stomach was flat and breast were upright. I just kept thinking is this possible? Did I just discover the best Bra in the world. Also ladies this just might be the perfect bra to wear under most crop tops. The bra delivers just as described in details above. It diminishes back fat on sight, slims waist and flattens belly. I swear it was almost like I was fitted for this bra. I got so excited to share with my Instagram followers I ran into the restroom on my lunch date pulled up my shirt and started cell recording. Yes it was that serious and urgent to get this news out there! See video on my Instagram @TheShoppingSlayer
