SLAY-o-Ween

by Friday, October 28, 2016

I teamed up with my favorite affordable fashion brand, Fashion to Figure, to create a lookbook filled with Halloween goodness to get you ready for this weekend. I know babes are on a budget and let’s face it – some Halloween costumes are CRAZY expensive – so it’s always nice to have a festive, spooky look that can also be a part of your daily life after the parties are over.

Back in Black

by Monday, March 21, 2016

If you remember last week’s post about being fearful of wearing a white plus size bodycon dress, you’ll remember that I talked a lot about my security blanket. Well, this is it. I wanted to bring it up to remind you that while I believe that it’s SO important to challenge ourselves a bit every single day (outfit-wise AND in life) I believe it’s also equally important to wear things that feel like home.

Bright White

Black is a glorious safety blanket for me. It minimizes things I don’t want seen and maximizes everything else (not to mention how bomb they look with a tan) – but white? White just seems like a walk on the wild side… for lots of reasons. First, because you can’t hide in white – everything is visible – everything you WANT to be visible and even things you don’t. Secondly, if you’re even the tiniest bit clumsy (like me) you spend the entire time counting down the hours until your Starbucks ends up on your dress. But, I had to face my fears.

Marbled

Remember last year when marble quietly crept forward and became a super trend? It started with a little Instagram background here and there and morphed into a pattern that everyone loved and put on everything: phone cases, laptop skins, not to mention how sales of marble trays soared (they are the perfect backdrop for beauty pics). Check out what I did with this dress!

The Best Fashion Advice, Ever.

Ahh, the LBD. The garment so loved by all women, it has its own initialism. Even despite its ridiculous popularity, there's so much criticism surrounding it! The little black dress is often viewed as "safe", "lazy" and "boring". That's not quite how I see it. To me, the little black dress is perfect. It's sexy. Timeless. Sophisticated. ...

Nude Metal

To say I've had a trying week would be putting it mildly. Between being sick and dealing with some family issues, I've been so thankful for shooting and writing for the blog to be a reprieve from everything that's been going on. Shooting this look was a reminder of the sheer power of fashion. I ...

The White Party

by Friday, December 19, 2014

I think there's nothing chicer than a white party for New Year's Eve. White is associated with purity, perfection and shiny, new beginnings. In my opinion, the perfect shade to wear to bring in the new year. I love this fitted one-shoulder dress by Ralph Lauren. It's classy, a hint sexy and unapologetically fun. If what you ...
