The Blues.








Top: DD's | Skirt: @FashionAvenuePlus | Purse: Aldo

I remember seeing a look similar to this posted by fellow #psblogger, the beautiful, Peggy from ontheqtrain.com ;) I was totally inspired by her look and decided to try it out my own way! I opted to stay in the blue family and just created a little contrast with the different shades of blue. I kept my accessories simple, as usual, and finished off the look with flats and my favorite shoulder bag from #Aldo.

This look is so comfy and carefree, but is still cute and trendy. Perfect for lunch with girlfriends, a little shopping or even a daytime date. Hope you enjoyed this look ladies! What’s something you have been inspired by lately?

Much love,

Fashion Risk.









What’s fashion without the risk?? Sometimes you just have to be bold and out the box and that might involve showing a little skin!! It’s still mid 80’s to 90’s in Cali so the Fall season hasn’t exactly registered in my brain yet. So for this look, I decided to turn an oversized shirt that my mom gave me into a dress. I see straight size women turn shirts into dresses all the time, but not so much for us plus size ladies. I wanted to show that it can be done, and done well! If I do say so myself! ;)

I instantly loved the pattern of my makeshift dress. It reminds me of blue flames, or Indian feathers or maybe the waves of the ocean. I love that you could get lost in the print and color is so vibrant! I finished the look off with some simple black pumps and my favorite half tinted sunglasses. I hope that you liked this look and tell me…what fashion risk have you taken lately?

Tip: If you want to try this type of look, but don’t want to get too risky (hehe ;)) you can always opt for a longer top or wear a cute pair of patterned stockings underneath.

Much love,

Youtube Faves!

Music, Fashion & Beauty, Entertainment Gossip. Yep, that pretty much sums up my weekly YouTube experience. I come across so many things that are cute, helpful or outright entertaining! So, I decided to start sharing some of my Youtube faves on the blog! Today, I will be sharing what’s been going around in the rumor mill with Jay Z & Beyonce, a cute video from August Alsina featuring Nicki Minaj (who looks so cute btw) and some early Fall transitional outfits by non-other than the beautiful Passion Jonez!

I hope that you like this new feature on the blog and if you have any other suggestions for the blog, please share! Happy Friday Honeys!

$2 Steal.


I love a good flannel top and would probably have more of them than a lumberjack in the fall, if I could just find them! I know that flannels are on trend, but honestly it’s been difficult for me to find ones that work for me and that are in my size. So, you could only imagine how happy I was when I found this PERFECT one in MY size at the thrift store for only $2 ladies!! I literally could have did a cartwheel in the store lol.




This night, I was attending a house party so I decided to keep things simple in all back. I opted for a loose fitting black tank and paired it with black leggings w/leather detailing. I finished off the look with a pair of chucks and my thrifted flannel tied around my waist. I love the way the look came together and how the flannel just made everything feel effortless and carefree.

Tip: Flannels are so versatile and easy to wear. They give a trendy & edgy feel to any look. You can take them from day to night by changing just a few key pieces.
Day: wrap your flannel around a tank dress or a cute pair of distressed shorts or jeans.
Night: wrap around a nice pair of leggings, with a tank, heels and leather moto jacket. Or wear it traditionally, tucked into a skater or pleated skirt – for a feminine flare.

Dear Kate.


What woman doesn’t like a cute pair of panties? I know that I do. What if you could find a cute pair of panties that were also high performance? High performance?? YES. Meaning they absorb moisture, unlike your normal panty, keeping you feeling fresh all day and are also stain resistant. I had the opportunity to try this “Super” panty from the Queen collection of a company called Dear Kate.




 “The brilliance is in the fabric. Dear Kate's founder utilized her chemical engineering background to create the patent-pending fabric lining each pair of underwear. Comprised of two luxurious microfiber layers and a thin, breathable outer layer, this is revolutionary fabric to the rescue. Dear Kates are designed for real women. Each pair is machine washable, unbelievably comfortable and a peace-of-mind guarantee.”



I wore my pair yesterday and the very first thing that I noticed was how great the quality was and how comfortable they were. I’ve had my run of the rough scratchy lace underwear, or the ones that cut into your skin and the list goes on. With these, The fabric was ah-mazing and the fit was even better. I also did Tae bo yesterday (got my Billy Blanks on lol) and they stayed right in place, the whole workout tape, and did a great job at absorbing moisture.

I definitely recommend these. Especially, to those who work out or have an active lifestyle. They practically eliminate the need for panty liners. Before you know it, you’ll be singing “ I got 99 problems but panties aint one!” :)

Jumpin






























Jumper: @86kissesboutique www.86kisses.com | Heels: Rainbow | Clutch: Thrifted | Chain Belt: @fashionavenueplus

Hey divas! I missed you bunches! Today, I am back with a little knowledge on one of the best ways to transition into Fall. The JUMPSUIT!  The jumpsuit trend is booming right now. This is one of those pieces that is perfect for transitioning into the Fall months. If you’re looking for a more laid back look, opt for a jumpsuit in a lightweight fabric that features a cute print, like the one I’m rocking from @86kissesboutique. The casual, but polished, vibe is perfect for brunch with the girls, weekend shopping or even a day party.

For a night look, I would stick with a solid color, like black, with a deep-v neckline. The silhouette is sexy, fun and easily takes on a dressy vibe. The most important thing to keep in mind when trying to find what jumpsuit works for you, is the cut and shape of the suit. If you love skinny jeans, you might what to look for a jumpsuit with a tapered leg. If skinny jeans and leggings aren’t your thing, a wide-leg jumpsuit is probably your best bet. Keep your body type in mind and find the right shape for your figure and you’re guaranteed to look fabulous honey! Xoxo

Much love,

All Yours.


Tank & Jeans: Yours Clothing | Heels: Rainbow | Watch: Aldo | Snackback: Ebay

Hey ladies! I know its been a minute since I last posted but I'm baccccckkk with two OOTD's and a new plus size company to share with you! You guys are always asking me where I get things, so I love sharing new stores you could shop for fashionable plus size clothes. I was sent this tank, skinny jeans an kimono from Yours Clothing based out of UK and the first thing I noticed is that these items are really great quality yall! From the way its made to the material used, you could tell the items will last you a long time.

Kimono & Jeans: Yours Clothing | Heels: Rainbow | Watch: Aldo | Shades: Ebay
For my first look I decided to keep things really simple with the coral tank and skinnies and just added some big gold hoops and a snapback to give the look some edge. The 2nd look is great for going out to a brunch or lunch with the girls or a day shopping. I decided to pair a black crop top with the kimono and skinnies to give the light summer feel that I was going for. I absolutely lovvvvee this kimono and it is a great go-to when you don’t want to show your arms or want to throw something on that’s not too heavy. Overall, I love these pieces and how the looks came together. Same jeans but two different looks…which is more your style?
