80’s and 90’s hip hop is how I grew up. From my listening to what my Dad listened to, to hanging around the older brothers of my childhood friends…hip hop is in me and so is the fashion that comes with it.
MCM & Puma are two brands that were synonymous with rap way back when. I remember carrying my Mom’s MCM purse around the house in the 90’s like it was mine so this collab brings back good memories! Some trends may come and go but TRUE hip hop fashion is trendsetting just like MCM!
Now let me just get some life savings together to afford such a luxury when its’ released next week!
In the meantime…
Here’s a preview…

Chromat is known for having one of, if not THE most diverse runways during New York Fashion Week. Their A/W 2017 show is no different, especially with the representation of plus size models. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the show…enjoy! Be sure to check out Chromat’s Twitter feed for tons of behind the scenes pics
Maxi dresses are always a go-to wardrobe staple. For obvious reasons…they’re comfortable, they don’t cling to places you don’t want them to and when they’re loose…they hide any imperfection. So who wouldn’t want the easy style of a maxi dress?!
I’m always on the hunt for plus size fashion places to shop and share with you guys but this time, the fashion came to me! Plus size maxi dresses are usually frumpy and not styled to fit curves, this isn’t true with this one.
This is the Alyssa Kimono V-Neck Maxi Dress in Navy Blue. You can find this dress and many others in tons of colors at GCGme.com. The kimono sleeves are what sold me on this particular style…usually, I hide my arms but with this dress, they’re perfectly graced by the cut and fabric. No need to add a shrug or jacket.
The pics don’t do this dress justice! It’s a gorgeous blue and flows the way a dress should.
I think I’ve found the perfect dress for one of my spring vacations! Of course, it’s too cold here in Michigan to flaunt about in the elements but I just couldn’t wait to try it on! Also, super fast shipping from this company, I’ll be sure to keep them in mind for future shopping endeavors. Well, that’s one outfit down and about 10 more to go to make sure I over-pack successfully!
This dress was given to me for my honest opinion which is my own.
Let the bright lights and double sided boob tape not blind you!
Last night were the 74th Annual Golden Globes in California. There were some BIG winners outside on the red carpet and some even bigger winners inside the auditorium. (On a personal note, I debated with myself on covering the event simply from being tired of people overusing the word “slay” … yes, I’m that annoyed.)
Anywho…there were lots of shimmering metallic, black and white combinations, and wonderful soft pastels gracing the entrance of the Golden Globes.
Here are my faves that should top everyone’s “Best Dressed” List:
I MUST start with THE Tracee Ellis Ross who wowed everyone on the red carpet and most notably wowed with her acceptance speech for her role on Blackish. The first black woman to win in…basically my whole lifetime. Wearing a Zuhair Murad dress and Yeprem jewelry covering her fingers.
Evan Rachel Wood switched things up with an Altuzarra tux.
Lily Collins wore the most beautiful dusty rose dress by Zuhair Murad Couture.
Viola Davis sparkled in a pop of yellow in this one shoulder Michael Kors dress.

Emma Stone was bright as a star (pun intended) in Maison Valentino
Priyanka Chopra (I have the biggest crush on her…sshhh) in this stunning gold Ralph Lauren
Now for the guys…
Eddie Redmayne can never do anything wrong. Rocking an almost dark blue suit, the Omega watches brand ambassador topped it all off with the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch (you guys know how much I love a nice watch!)
Donald Glover wore a chocolate brown velvet Gucci suit while he scooped up TWO Golden Globes for FX’s hit Atlanta.

Ryan Gosling who had the most gracious of acceptance speeches thanking the beautifully strong Eva Mendes.
Well, that’s it for me! I’m pretty sure I’ve missed some other great dressed stars but these topped my list! Hope you enjoyed. Let’s discuss your faves and more via Facebook or Twitter!

Summer is just about over! For those in between days when it’s not quite cool enough for a sweater and you still want to look cute, what to do? Or if you’re like me, you want to get at least one more wear out of that perfect summer maxi dress…
Simply pair a denim jacket and sandals with your maxi dress and you’re all set to go for a Sunday stroll in the park!
Of course I took my furry baby beagle Chipper (who’s now 5 and loves to pull me) for a walk through the park! Dubbed “Great Expectations Maxi Dress by Perfectly Priscilla” is spot on! Needless to say this dress meets and exceeds my expectations! It is both cute and functional, isn’t heavy so it doesn’t weigh me down. It isn’t too thin, so no one will be able see through the fabric! I am absolutely in love with this dress! It’s the perfect length even for my short 5’3″ frame without any alterations.
Speaking of the fabric…the print! Oh my gosh, the print!
It has a very Moroccan motif that I’m absolutely in love with! The material is perfect for summer or an almost fall day. Bonus: the upper part of the strapless dress is lined!
Must say, I’m pretty excited about fall weather coming. For me, there’s nothing better than a pair of jeans and a sweater when the air is crisp. Can’t wait to see what Perfectly Priscilla has in store for the fall and winter! I’ll definitely grab a couple of stylish things.
This cute plus size maxi dress was provided by Perfectly Priscilla for my honest review.
So he spent Thanksgiving with you and your family now it’s time for you to head to his folks’ place for Christmas. Well, that all sounds like a fun time until you start freaking out about what to wear!
First, ask yourself these 3 questions:
Where will you be going? (i.e. city, country, cold state or warm place)
How long will you be there? (you’re going to need more than one outfit)
Is it casual or formal?
Once you have the answers to those questions, it’s waaaay easier to narrow down your outfit choices.
If you’re still having trouble figuring it all out…I’m here to help!
Here are several plus size outfit ideas for any weather.
Look one is perfect for the casual holiday gathering and features a cute versatile plus size Danica top from Fashion To Figure, Lena black stretch pants from Lane Bryant and square gift box Kate Spade clutch that I am absolutely DYING to have in my collection right now! (Hint hint wink wink 🙂 )
Look two is just a little bit more fancy/dressier than look one but still has all the comfort. A gorgeous “darling batwing” peplum top in a creamy white color from Fashion To Figure that will hide any problem areas (uh win!) Attention! jeweled shoes from Kmart (yes, THAT Kmart) in a perfect shade of camel. The featured gold DVF bag is currently sold out on Nordstrom.com but you can find similar bags by clicking here or visit DVF.com. Coated black pants that will more than likely have you feeling sexier than ever from Lane Bryant. Your man will probably want to rip them off of you once the night is over!
Look three gives you wonderful plus size outfit ideas that are dressier and well, um…dresses (and a skirt)! If you’ll attend a more formal event/dinner with his family, these dresses are shape flattering and perfect for any holiday dinner event! I tried to pick dresses that stayed within a “holiday color scheme” so you won’t stick out in a bad way. The red & black lace trimmed dresses are from Eloquii, the black velvety soft princess seem dress is from eshakti (which custom fits your clothes with the measurements you send them! From size 0-36W, they’ll be sure to give you a great piece! Last but not least, the Dia chevron foil skirt from Fashion To Figure. Bonus, these dresses can totally be worn more than once to any type of shindig later on. The shoes are in no particular order, mix and match as you please!
Each holiday look idea, is featured with a dressier shoe. Whether it’s a flat or a heel, be sure that whatever shoe you choose is comfortable enough to wear for a couple of hours. You can also pull your sneakers out of the car or carry some really comfy slipper socks in your purse for this exact occasion! I’m sure his folks will understand. Of course with most of America having a “heat wave” it’s kind of hard to dress for 60+ degrees in December so those looks are all perfect with or without a coat.
