What I Wore: End of Summer

So this week I was in the mood to spruce up my look. I returned to work from leave and felt recharged. Normally I dress for comfort but this week I wanted dress up. 

I started the week with mixing prints. This outfit is thrifted the shirt I found at Goodwill and the skirt I purchased from Poshmart.
I went to see Janet Jackson this week and opted for all black look. I purchased this crop top and skirt set from Forever21 about a year ago. I wanted something sexy yet classy. 

Since I live in the South we get a longer summer. So I've been rushing to wear some of my last minute summer dresses. I purchased this turquoise dress from Lane Bryant and paired it with a cardigan not pictured. 

A Week in My Life

I purchased this house plant from my local grocery store it didn't have a price so they gave it to me for .99 cent. I love the greenery in my kitchen and plan to get more.

Went to see Frozen on Ice with Alyssa we had a fun mommy daughter night.

My daughter loves first grade compared to kindergarten. 

I absolutely love this glam glow mud mask. It has worked numbers for my acne. 

I'm really considering buying a blogging camera for my Youtbe channel. I currently have a Nikon that overheats.

Took my first baby on a field trip she really enjoyed getting out the house.

When you find your vampy lips you thought you lost. So excited to find this baby I think it's Mac Rebel or Cyber....

I'm absolutely in love with my Rebecca Minkoff bag. I've received so many compliments on it. The color is actually a neon electric pink. I love to style it as a pop of color to a basic outfit. I purchased this gem on sell for $145.00.  The only con is I've experienced color transfer. 
Gorgeous clouds..........
I recently began waist training with my Orchird Steele Bone Corset. I posted a video on it visit my YouTube channel.

Tips To Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall


As fall approaches I typically don't purchase many fall pieces because I live in the South and have a longer summer but as it gets closer to the winter and the cooler air draws near I find myself implementing a few tips to get the most out of my wardrobe.

1. Layer Layer Layer: Purchase blazers (thrift store) cardigans, jean jackets to layer with long maxi dresses for cooler nights.
2. Booties: Are fun to wear especially peep toe booties which are perfect for end of summer/fall weather.
3. Stockings: You can still wear some of your dresses and skirts just pair them with a durable pair of stockings or leggings.

All White Party: The struggle of finding the perfect plus size all white dress

Last night I went to the 14th annual All White Affair given annually by CGI Entertainment. I don't go out often but I make a effort to support this event. Mostly because it's different than the typical Saturday night club crowd. All White Parties typically bring out the who's who of the city and last night wasn't a exception. The night was filled with good music, food and drinks. I love the layout of the Carde building and although I wished I would've taken more pictures I was busy enjoying myself with a new friend.

  Being that I'm a fashion enthusiast I love to see what people are wearing especially my plus size sisters. As a plus size woman I know how difficult it can be to find the perfect All White Dress for a event. I opted to purchase dress from a "instagram" boutique and honestly I sort of regretted it. Why? Well I saw two other women with the same dress!!!!
It's nothing more awkward then seeing someone else with the same exact dress on not once but twice but in all honesty what could I expect when I opted to shop on instagram. I wasn't the only woman who seem to have this issue however, as I saw several repeat outfits mostly all white skirts and dresses that can be bought on many of the well known instagram shops. While I'm not saying that purchasing items from instragram is necessarily bad but if you're looking for exclusivity then you're best option is to think outside the box. So I wanted to share a few tips, in all honesty find a plus size dress isn't hard but it solely depends on your budget and how many coins you are willing to spare for a one-time event. In my case I tend to only wear these dresses once a year so I tend to limit my budget for this event. I paired my white dress with my Chanel CC earnings and a handmade body chain necklace. I purchased my shoes from Shoedazzle and paired it with my moto-jacket hot pink purse.
