Inspired By... The Culotte Edition...

Shirt-Asos Curve, Culottes-Simply Be, Bag-Saturday(old)(Similar), Shoes-ShoeDazzle(old)(love these), Sunnies-Celine, Necklace-Bauble Bar


I fell head over hills with this look that Margaret Zhang rocked, way before culottes where a thing. Of course I had to bid my time waiting for the perfect pieces to come available on the plus-size market. Now that culottes are a thing, I searched long and hard for the perfect pair of cream culottes. They are such a light and breezy blend of perfection. I paired it with this green shirt from Asos to give me the look of my dreams. There is no better feeling than when a look comes together.

I know that this look is baggy, unfitted and slightly shapeless. I am also aware that culottes might be intimidating for some and that they are a trend that most people will avoid, but I love taking fashion risk. Fat girls can take fashion risk! We don’t have to play it safe and go with looks that people deem flattering! We can wear whatever we like, and we shouldn’t be afraid of what other people are saying. If I never hear the term “does this make me look fat again” it won’t be too soon.  

That being said, I don’t think there is anything wrong with interpreting trends to work for your style aesthetic.  The key is finding a style interpretation that makes you both confident and comfortable. Adding these snakeskin sandals and gold bib necklace made this look totally me.
Do you y’all ever try style interpretations? How do you make the looks more you?

Mellow Yellow...

Yellow Midi-Simply Be, Shoes-ShoeDazzle(old), Sunnies-Stella McCartney

There is nothing better than a brightly colored dress on a warm spring day! I felt 100% girl when I wore this dress to grab an early dinner. Honestly, I thought this dress a wee bit drab when I got it. Yes I know its bright yellow y’all, but that was the most exciting thing about it. Until I put it on. The feminine cut made such a huge difference to me.

To add a little more oomph to the dress I wore these multi-color extreme platforms that I forgot about. When the fashion heads declared platforms over, I gave most of mine away, without a thought. Thank goodness these survived. Just a touch of whimsy was all that was needed to make this look perfect!

What do you add to a look to make it perfect when you aren’t sure how you feel about it?

Jumpsuit Jeniese...

Jumpsuit-Eloquii, Studded Belt-Torrid Old(Similar), Shoes-Aldo, Sunglasses-Celine (Lower Price Version)


Yes, I am guilty of being a repeat offender with my wardrobe. When I shop I gravitate towards the same materials, silhouettes and colors. So it was no surprise that when this jumpsuit hit Eloquii, I knew I had to have it. Every aspect of this jumpsuit screamed my name, from the bright colors to the ruffles! My UPS man almost had to pry me off of him when he dropped it off at my house (Sorry Mr. UPS Man).

The fit of this jumpsuit is incomparable! I love how comfortable it is and how I can restyle it to wear in the day or the evening hours. I know that several of you are slightly afraid of jumpsuits, but I encourage you not to be. Jumpsuits are easy to wear and style. Especially since all you have to worry about is the accessories to wear with your jumpsuit. They make getting dressed so easy for me.  

When I shop for a jumpsuit I always shop for my bottom half. Having the top half tailored to fit my body is way easier than having the bottom half tailored to fit. Although I didn’t have to do this with this jumpsuit. It seriously fit like it was made for me. I will have the pants hemmed to fit me perfectly so I can wear flats with it.

So here is my challenge, go out and try on a jumpsuit! I bet you will love it!
