New updated video below, switching it up on a dime.
I ordered the 40×80 chunky blanket runner to cover my king size bed. I’m very happy with my blanket, the style , look, appearance and quality was exactly what I wanted.
Chunky Blankets are all the rage in home decor. They are a statement piece that elevates any room, especially the bed. Hope you enjoyed this post. PS My bed is very comfortable. Adding new curtains, some unique throw pillows can add so much cozy to your room.
I am a firm believer that the room you spend the most time in should represent everything you love and make you feel relax.
Make your our personal space something special, it should be your personal taste, not what the top home decor magazines tell you it should be.
just a photo of your loved ones can uplift your space. I took these pictures when the sun was setting.
Today was very overcast, I will probably exchange them out tomorrow. The sunlight that comes in my room is sensational. Overall my bedroom is very relaxing and makes me feel calm.
I imagined wearing this coat very 1960’s style when I spotted it on the Asos site. It just looked like something my mom wore in her day. That is the era I should have been born because it was all about daily slayage and effortless style in my mom and Dads era. I can look at her old photo books and droll over her, my aunts, uncles and cousins fashions, they were simply fabulous!
I had a modern day Audrey Hepburn in mind when styling this look. Hope you like, and please stop back through soon. It was 59 degrees in Texas today, so I took advantage to show you one of my favorite coats. I know, I know, I said I wasn’t investing in a coat because it’s not that cold in Dallas. Yes that’s true however this coat is more a style overcoat to enhance your outfit not a coat to keep you warm if it’s freezing out.
I have worn these new super stretch www.lanebryant.com jeans all day today and I can for sure say to size down. They conform to your body and have such a nice stretch. These jeans are cute with the frayed ankle and very comfortable. I sized down to a 18 and I still had room. I have big legs and these jeans will make you look a size smaller. Lane Bryant has really hit the ball out the park this Fall.
I hope you are following me on Instagram where I took you in the dressing room of Lane Bryant and tried on these jeans, on my Instastories.
This Prince Crop Top is from Forever 21 Red, I did not find the link for plus size on Forever 21. I did see it in the straigh size. I guess they are not carrying yet like their sister store Forever 21 Red. I also have a live video on instastories where I took you with me on a walk through of Forever 21 Red.
I was invited to www.Lane Bryant.com store to try on the new super stretch skinny jeans. I spent two hours speaking to the sales girls getting thoroughly informed about these new jeans line and trying on denim. Lane Bryant does it again! With the introduction to a denim that fits even better, and has on trend details. You might have to size down, I was told by the sales associate who has been wearing them for awhile, these jeans have more stretch and as you break them in they become looser. I decided to go down a size because I like my jeans fitting like jeggings. These jeans fit mid rise, a mid rise fit is especially great for the girls with a belly and booty. They give us more wiggle room and no roll down over the stomach. They run size 14-28. I honestly didn’t think they looked that cute on the website but once I tried them on it was ON! And yes they are very slenderizing to the full figured gal.
I tried on a few other things and was blown away with this mesh polka dot top. The sales associate brought it to my dressing room and I thought no way just like with the fray ankle. But I decided to practice what I preach and step outside my comfort zone. This top is extremely cute and so perfect for all my holiday needs. This is that “It piece” I couldn’t stop taking pictures of myself in this top. It was so sexy.
www.walmart.com has a huge selection of sweaters, tops and blouses that go to size 4X. Check out the online selection you will be pleasantly surprised with the variety of styles. You will find so much more to choose from then in the store, however I got this lilac color one I’m wearing from instore. The jeans are from itsfashions and are currently in store. I added a pair of lace tights underneath to diminish some of the distressing.
Just stopped in to say these colorblock jeans are buy 1 get 1 for $12.50. There’s never not a time to wear soft cozy sweaters and denim. Another two staple items for your wardrobe. These are items you can wear until the wheels fall off, wash then take them for another spin.
I requested a month ago for you guys to send in what you would like to see on the blog. Thrilled I got some very good feedback. Melanie wrote in she is a busy, young single career girl that works her corporate job during the day, and she sometimes goes out after work with her friends or date. She wanted to know how could she quickly transition her professional attire to after work wear without bringing extra clothing to work.
Love this question, thank you Melanie for writing in. I think sometimes we over think business attire and assume blazer, skirts, pant sets. When really it’s quite simple to dress for the corporate world, be comfortable and slay your day. Here I put together a monochrome outfit. Monochrome styles are the easiest and best way to dress when you want to look great. Monochromatic dressing instantly relieves you of having to do the what goes with what questions. Monochrome looks blend together effortlessly even when pieces are not a set or different hues of the color you choose.
Grey, Green and Gold are my favorite colors so I choose to show you a monochrome grey outfit.
You can wear this outfit on your corporate job with a basic bootie and after work take your booties off and add a statement heel or statement Bootie like I did. I tucked my stirrup pants under my Rose Gold Bootie to give this simply look a funky edge. That easy I went from day to evening. No extra clothes I put all the emphasis on the shoe since Melanie said she didn’t want to bring extra clothing to work. Notice I could have added bold statement accessories as well.
This soft poncho (wearing 2X) sits off one shoulder is a must have, soft and luxe looking. The color grey just gives off a very rich feel no matter how casual the outfit. I’ve never worn these stirrup pants on the blog before but I have had them for some time. I’m wearing a size 22 and sized up on purpose because I wanted to experiment wearing them under my booties, hey I’m a fashion blogger. I’m here to experiment and take risk so you don’t have to. If you don’t want to wear yours like this, I suggest buying in your true size. These are cotton leggings and are suppose to be fitted to the body. Overall this is a typical closet staple wardrobe for me, that I can wear anywhere in my life. I can add a statement necklace and dress this outfit up or put on sneakers and wear to one of my sons game. Ladies these are the styles you want in your wardrobe arsenal. Keep multifunctional pieces in place to take the anxiety out of getting dressed. Of course these can be worn as separates with other items and give even more options.
I hope you all enjoyed this post, so much more to come. I appreciate all who wrote in to say what they want to see on the blog. I created this blog for us. This is our blog hence I never refer to space as MY blog. Please send in any suggestions or request for specific post. I truly love doing these kinds of post for you guys. This is the reason I wanted a website to reach and connect with you all.
I am wearing a size XXL sweater. This is a junior sized XXL however it fits my size 18-20 frame very well. I am a expert that looks in all departments looking for quality and my personal style. I don’t necessarily look for a plus sized items. I search out my style and quality first then size. You will find sometimes a 18-20 plus size can fit into a XXL junior size. Don’t limit yourself to the plus size section.
I selected sweaters that will work for my curvy girls. This sweater got my attention because of the trendy lace up back. I wanted a everyday cardigan that would give a subtle hint of edge. Of course you could wear this sweater to work over a tank top or button down. Here I am bringing you a date night/evening look with this super versatile sweater. This is a stay in your wardrobe for a very long time sweater. Who doesn’t love a cozy black cardigan sweater.
I have more looks to come, so far we have only spent $40 of my $150 www.walmart.com giftcard. You are going to be quite surprised how I stretched $150 and bought quality and style on a budget. Your wardrobe should be a mix of 70% basic staple pieces that never go out of style and last for years. 20% edgy, funky pieces and 10% trend. All the pieces I will bring you this week will fit perfectly into your basic wardrobe.
