Much love,



Lace N’ Leopard turns ONE today!!! Wow…when I first started blogging, I NEVER imagined my blog would be where it is today. I just knew that I loved and admired fashion and I wanted to talk about it, show it and share it from my perspective. So many positive things have come from this journey and, as I reflect on the past year, one of the things I am most PROUD of is creating Same Fit Done Thick. I have gotten so much POSITIVE feedback from readers who love that fact that the series shows that plus size women can SERVE up the same outfit as their smaller counterparts, and just as well. ENCOURAGING women to do away with phrases like “I’m too big for that” or “When I lose weight I’m going to wear”. Wear it NOW. Be proud, be confident and WERK. I am so happy to be a part of that. So thank you. Thank you for all the LOVE, comments, likes, follows, shares, features, encouragement and support…I appreciate it, I truly do.

And…To show my appreciation, there will be GIVEAWAYS this week!! So make sure that you are checking back on the blog and following me on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK so you don’t miss out on your chance to WIN!!!

Oh and let me not forget the FASHION! YES honey! High bun, FUR, Shades, Oxblood and TRIBAL print was all in effect for the anniversary shoot! Trying to be gone with the wind FABULOUS honey! ::TWIRL:: lol ;)

Love yall!




Two outfit post in a week! Man…I’m on a roll! Lol Hey ladies…hope your week is going well. Just wanted to share my outfit of the night for dinner last week. I decided to wear this thrifted animal print top with my red skinny jeans and nude heels. I swear nude heels STAY in rotation with me! I can’t get enough of them. I finished off my look with a dope vintage coin chain that I got from my grandmother. When I saw it in her jewelry stash…I was like ok granny...ok lol. And that’s pretty much it! I LOVE mixing up old pieces with new…and wearing things that have transcended through time. Have yall thrifted lately?

Much love,

Sushi Date.


Hey ladies! Hope all is fine and well with you! So...recently, I met up with one of my friends, Monet, for a little girl talk over lunch. We decided to meet at Sushi on Fire off 2nd street in Long Beach. When I say the sushi was bomb, it was BOMB lol. I decided to keep it low-key and casual with some dark blue skinnies, black tube top, gold accesories and thrifted nude cap-toe heels. I wore a scarf as a shaw to tie the whole look togeher. I always have so much fun catching up with my boo's...I swear girl talk is theraputic! lol
Much love,





Hey lovelies! Back with an outfit of the night J This night was pretty casual…just going to a friend’s house, but still wanted to look nice. So, I decided to wear black tights with a thin sweater top that has an opening down the middle. I wore a black tube top underneath, cause it was too cold and ‘aint nobody got time fa dat’ < sorry had to do it lol. -_- I wore a red lip, chunky gold accessories and black boots to finish off the look. Now, the question is...what I’m going to wear for Valentine’s Day? What are you wearing?

Much love,

Be Encouraged.


Hey ladies! I just wanted to bless you with some words of encouragement from my girl Tyra Jackson of Street Therapy this morning.  She sharpens me daily and I just wanted to share a little of her with the rest of you. Here are few postings from her “Morning Coffee” series. Check out her blog at Have a blessed week yall!!

What is your vision?

If God be for you who can stand against you? It takes a lot courage to win the fight of success. Through sweat, tears, setbacks and disappointments the goal is to keep pushing forward until you finish the race. What is life without a vision? If you have no vision, no purpose, without any direction how can you have peace and happiness? Make a decision today to discover what it is that you really want out of life, make a list and look at it every day. Turn deaf ears to critics, haters and people who discourage your dreams and dare to be unique because you were created to stand out. Be careful that you do not allow your experiences in life to limit your potential. We are co-creators with God therefore we are limitless……..

Gloria Stienem


Peace Be Still

If you haven’t learned by now how much having and maintaining peace in your life is important then you may want to take some time to pay attention to how you are responding to certain situations and people. We all know how stress can affect the heart, body and it can also break down your immune system so most of the time if not all the time choose your battles wisely. Be mindful of what you allow to invade your mental space that you do not take it to heart. From experience it’s not what people say to you that matters, it’s what you believe to be true that counts. So choose to believe in what’s going to create more peace in your life instead of chaos. Where there is no peace there is not power! Work hard at not allowing people to control whether you are going to be happy, mad or sad. Why give power to people who don’t matter so they can experience joy while you experience pain.

No one is capable of making you upset without your consent.”



Jer 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

We have the power to make our dreams come true, but most of us don’t know how to pursue our dreams because we lack determination, ambition and faith. God’s word unveils the truth about who we are when we get close to him and understand his will for our lives. We all have purpose, but we need direction and discernment of the Holy Spirit to guide us. They say the Bible stands for Basic –Instruction- Before- Leaving –Earth and from experience the bible has taught me humility, faith and endurance.   When I started to read the word for myself, I realized I had to divorce what I had been taught because God’s love is fulfilling, healing, rewarding and liberating. When you get close to God, you have fellowship, acceptance and mercy that endures forever, when you have faith, it doesn’t mean we don’t have trouble, it just means that regardless of what you go through, God will make a way …” Somehow”

John 5:24: “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.

Superbowl Chillin.


Hey yall! Hope you had a great weekend and Superbowl Sunday! Though I have minimal knowledge of sports…I did enjoy the food, drinks and lively atmosphere! Oh yeah and the Beyonce half time show lol. I swear her wigs be LAIDDDDD honey! Anyhoo, I went and functioned at my friend’s house where she served up New Orleans style cuisine…complete with Gumbo and Shrimp Po Boys. BOMB…ya understand? lol. I kept it casual and wore some army green skinny jeans that I picked up at the Goodwill for $2 and a Tie-Dye scarf that I thrifted for $3. I finished the look off with a thin flowy cardigan and my favorite most comfy nude heels. I really enjoyed catching up with my friends, cracking jokes, and just genuinely having a good time. So…what did yall do Superbowl Sunday and what did yall think of the much anticipated Beyonce performance?

Much love,
