Three Way.


When it comes to stretching your closet I am all for it! I love thinking outside of the box and being creative when it comes to the clothing I wear. Not to mention, remixing your clothing is easy on your bank account. Who doesn’t love that?! I always look for pieces that I can wear the heck out of in unique and different ways.

Today I am going to show you three totally easy looks made from one awesome essential. When I see something in my closet, I want to be inspired and challenged by the opportunity to wear it someway new. This ByGrisel dress offered via Rebdolls, does just that. It fits my body like a glove, has a cute and unique splattered paint print and its Gray! I totally need more gray in my closet because I LOVE it! Plus, it’s flattering for your curves and just plain easy.


























Date Night: Show them curves girl! This dress hugs all the right spots and will be sure to have your boo doing a double take ;) Heels & Clutch: +Rainbow Shops 


























Office Party: It’s ok to be all bootylicious and stuff but you might want to turn it down a notch at an office party lol. So I turned the dress into a skirt by layering it with a cashmere-ish poncho that was gifted to me by my mother. Still sexy and appropriate at the same time. Poncho: Gifted.



























Girls Night Out: I chose to tuck my dress in my acid stone washed skinnies and wear it as a top for night-on-the-town look. I finished off the look with red heels and clutch and, of course, leather! You can never go wrong with a nice leather jacket it adds instant edge and an effortless quality to every look!

I hope you ladies enjoyed these looks and if you would like to see more posts like this…let me know!

#LNLWeightloss:: Monique

What motivated you to lose weight and how much have you lost?

Honestly I really got tired of being the big one, the fat friend, or the she's pretty for a big girl. When I finally made up my mind I remember talking to my ex, and telling him I was going on a diet.. He just looked and said " you always say that, just let it go"... While I don't really think he knew how those words affected me! The journey started off trying to prove everyone wrong who had ever written me off especially him, but a month into things it became more about me, and how I was feeling and treating my body like a temple!  Start weight 280lbs and I've lost exactly 80lbs!




What did you do to lose weight? (ie. weight watchers, low carb, portion control, fitness apps, exercise, juicing, etc.)

I started off eating really clean, only proteins, veggies, fruits & a minimum of 3 starches a week mainly brown rice and sweet potatoes. Once I incorporated the gym, I would walk for 60 minutes on the treadmill and once I built up endurance I started interval training once I started running the weight really started to melt off. And once the lbs started flying I started strength training with weights toning my areas to keep a toned physique. 



What are some of your favorite meals, food items or snacks when dieting?

My favorite foods are spinach, and almonds.. Almonds are great for snacking and curbing your appetite! I also love love cliff's white chocolate macadamia nut granola bars. And fresh cut pineapples, I eat them every day!




Did you follow any weight loss “rules”? (ie. no eating after 5, no carbs, etc)

The only weight loss rule I really followed was no fried foods, I couldn't follow a time schedule for eating because of my work schedule, so when I did eat late I made sure it was a lite meal.





In your opinion, what is the hardest thing about weight loss?

The hardest thing about losing weight has got to be consistency and having your mind made up. It's easy to eat right for that 1st week but what happens when you're bored by the 2nd week. I always say it's mind over matter!




What are some of the joys of being at a healthier weight?

Although I'm not quite at my ideal weight, the best feeling has got to be, being able to go into any store and knowing they will have my size! My wardrobe has drastically changed lol I've bought clothes just because and also when you haven't seen an old friend in a while and they see you for the first time after your weight loss. 




If you could leave readers with a word of advice or any tips, what would it be?

My advice is to have your mind made up and set! Once you change your mind, you then can change your body. Weight loss starts with the mind!!!

Sweater & Skinny's | Fashion Avenue Plus | Flannel: Thrifted | Boots: Shiek

























Whether you wear them buttoned, unbuttoned on top of your favorite tee, or wrapped around your waist, flannel shirts are pretty much EVERYTHING right now, and actually, have been for decades. In the 90’s, flannels were typically part of the grungy-casual outfit, often paired with chucks, old tees, thermal shirts, and distressed jeans. And while these pairings still hold true today, we’re also seeing flannels paired with polished staples like skinny jeans and heels, and fitted skirts…adding a casual touch to an otherwise dressier outfit.

I love pairing black white and red together. So, for this look I wore my black and white LOVE sweater with white skinny jeans. I finished off the look with my absolute favorite flannel that I got from the thrift store for $2, and some peep-toe booties. This look was everything I wanted it to be…young, chic and edgy. The flannel trend is something that I surely won’t be getting tired of any time soon. Definitely a trend to, at least, try! So, my question to you is…have you flannel-ed lately? ;)

Much love,

Concert Flow






Tank: DD's | Jeans: @FashionAvenuePlus | Flannel: Thrifted | Chucks: WSS | Watch: MK
You ever feel like you have no idea what to wear to a concert? I know I did! You want to be cute…but not overdressed and, most importantly, you also want to be comfortable. No one wants to be stuck at a 2 hour concert with their feet hurting or wearing something that is too tight. I made that mistake one time. I went to a rap concert in a full bodycon dress and heels. Worst mistake ever! Plus the concert was standing room only! I felt extremely over dressed and just outright uncomfortable.

So, this time around I learned from my past mistakes and kept things cute and casual. This night, I was going to see B.O.B and Kevin Gates at Club Nokia. It was standing room only. It’s sort of like a club environment. So, I decided to wear a simple black tank with distressed jeans. I made the look more trendy and edgy by adding a waist wrapped flannel and chucks.

I loved the way the look came together and, more importantly, I could dance all night!

Much Love,
Tiff @LaceNLeopard

#LNLWeightLoss:: Sandra


#LNLWeightLoss is baccck! Restarting my own weight loss journey has motivated me to pick up where I left off and continue this segment of my blog. I hope that sharing others journey could be an inspiration to, myself, and to all my readers! Now let's get to it!

BADD either way in my opinion! Down 80lbs! Check out Sandra's ah-mazing weight loss story!

Much love,
Tiff @LaceNLeopard


1.    What motivated you to lose weight and how much have you lost?
There were many reasons why I started my journey. Most of my family is overweight, women especially. I basically feared continuing the cycle. I feared becoming pregnant at my heaviest weight of 220lbs, and raising a child, and trying to instill healthy habits when I didn't have those myself. So, that reality alone was enough, plus being cute for the fat girl type comments, and having a hard time shopping for my size. It was frustrating. I've lost 80lbs. I currently weigh 140lbs :-)

2.    What did you do to lose weight? (ie. weight watchers, low carb, portion control, fitness apps, exercise, juicing, etc.)

Good question... My journey has taken me through a lot of "diets" lol. I started with a high protein high fat low carb, I've done low carb... What I feel really worked for me was incorporating 6 meals each containing protein, greens, and complex carbs. I don't count calories, just my daily meals :-)


3.    What are some of your favorite meals, food items or snacks when dieting?

My favorite right now is oatmeal with egg whites! It's usually my first meal of the day before the gym.. I already have oatmeal made, so just put some in a bowl, pour liquid egg whites, microwave for 2 minutes. Add some cinnamon and sometimes I'll add coconut sugar. Delicious! 


4.    Did you follow any weight loss “rules”? (ie.  no eating after 5, no carbs, etc)

Only rule I follow is to eat, and eat plenty of protein. 


5.    In your opinion, what is the hardest thing about weight loss?

In my opinion, the hardest part of weight loss is consistency. It's not an easy journey, and it will definitely test your limits. And it's a matter of sticking it through. And being patient.


6.    What are some of the joys of being at a healthier weight?

Wow, so many!!! Well, definitely attracting more variety of men lol I love shopping now. I can fit in anything! Feels amazing. My energy levels are so high. I'm much more productive. Have a new perspective to life. But, most importantly the feedback I get from others... It truly brings me joy hearing (reading) others say that seeing my transformation pics has given them hope that they can reach their goals. I've never had anyone serve as an example of a healthy fit life, and the fact that I can be that to others feels amazing.



7.    If you could leave readers with a word of advice or any tips, what would it be?

The best advice I can give is to never give up. Results take time. Don't rush it. Be disciplined, be patient, stay consistent. Results will come. Change the mind, and the body will follow ;-)
