Dresses are not my most worn item of clothing unless it’s a shirt dress but I had to have this one, and for $12 why not. Let me tell you this dress is so awesome and made so cute. Reminds me of old Hollywood. The color is Fall ready and the ponte fabric is great. It does have a little stretch as well. I love the way it goes into a true pencil on the bottom. Sometimes as the sizes get larger (wearing a US 22) the bottom of form fitting skirts and dresses get to flare. You will be oh so pleased with this dress. It’s multi seasonal.

Who am I kidding it’s close to 100degrees everyday in Dallas Texas and the weather will remain hot before turning warm well after Thanksgiving. Hopefully I will get a chance to wear this dynamic piece of clothing. It’s advertised as a jacket but as soon as I noticed it on Asos site I seen it as a dress.
When this coat/dress arrived it fitted exactly as I envisioned. I wanted it to fit bigger not fitted. I absolutely love the way this coat/dress fits me. This coat/dress will look good on all shapes and sizes. It’s chic enough to wear to dinner, the office, an event just about anywhere you want to look casual with the hint of chic. It’s a nice army green color definitely a item to snag up leading into Fall weather.
Some of you guys on the east coast should absolutely snatch this up. You will get so much use out of it. Just think you can wear a pair of black pants, white button down shirt add this as your Fall jacket and look soooo classy. You can also throw this on for a movie, brunch or dinner date.
Always follow the size guide on Asos to convert from UK to US sizes.
I just love this season take on the men’s look shirt with the off shoulder edge girls are rocking this summer. I’m definitely a fan of men’s wear inspired fashion. This top I’m wearing is an extremely inexpensive way to experiment with a few trends all in 1. You have the off shoulder, tie waist and men’s shirt stripes. All currently trending.
This top currently on sale for $11 at Asos. It is available Size UK 16-28 I’m wearing a US22.
Always use the conversion size chart with Asos to determine your size. I paired with some old Rainbowshop distressed denim and feel so cute out here in these Dallas Texas streets. Yes ladies some days it’s ok to feel yourself. We have our on days and our off days so Own it! when you are feeling saucy.
I have been obsessed with maxi dresses this summer. You can catch me somewhere between bathing suits, cute jeans, sports bras and maxi dresses all summer 2017. I think the maxi dress is everything! I prefer to wear mines with comfortable sandals because (1) you can barely see my feet and (2) I feel super sexy and upscale with a maxi dress on, so as far as I’m concerned any shoe goes so why not take the opportunity to wear a flat comfy shoe.
Here I’m wearing a maxi dress and duster coat that was a steal from Asos. Ladies if you don’t jump all over this $22 duster shame on you! This red dress just skimmed over my body and elongated my silhouette. It also has elastic in the perfect placement to accentuate your curves and create a more defined waist. The arms on this dress are so flattering and hit in the perfect area of a woman’s arms. Also I think this is only my 2nd garment with a choker attached and I was on the fence about this style. But as soon as I tried it on I was like wow I have really been missing out on this cute look. This is the perfect dress to transition straight into fall.
Thank you for stopping by, see you in my next post.
I know I have been gone far to long on this blog, but please forgive me and let me explain. I promised myself I was going to attend every event I was invited to summer 2017. Last summer I only got away a brief few days and it was mostly work related, so I did not want that to happen again this summer. I deserved a vacation, socializing and a little adulting time. One of the events I attended this summer was a movie screening in Dallas Texas for the movie Girls Trip. Great movie, cast, plot so much fun! I enjoyed it and was in the best company with several Dallas bloggers like myself. I met some new kool people as well. I love making a connections in my own city.
I wore a purple midi dress from Asos that I love. I paired it with a black duster and purple corset. A comfortable casual chic look that was totally perfect for this girls night out.
note* I would not recommend the corset I’m wearing if you are short waisted. I would recommend you get something several inches shorter.
The one I am wearing is also genuine leather and laces up the back. If you are a new corset user or 1st time corset wearer you will more than likely need help putting this corset on. I followed the size guide and measured my areas to insure a flawless fit. This corset is very well made and will last me for many years. I plan on wearing this as much as I can when I have somewhere fancy to go.
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.
