When Florals and Stripes Meet featuring Eloquii Mixed Stripe Skirt

Hey Luvs!!!!  

  So I’m in bit of a mood to share a loving story with you about a plus size girl in love with tropical prints and stripes this season. If you don’t know, I’m a huge fan of mixing prints. It has to be one of my favorite ways to be playful and edgy in my looks. 

Now my new love for this tropical print season has my eyes dancing with the colors and imagining tropical getaways. But this love for tropics can only be accompanied by this current obsession with the black and white /monochromatic trend also going on.  

So I was thinking… why not mix the two and see what happens? 

All I can say is….My Love just got Deeper! 

 This silk tropical print shirt from BB Dakota was a gift, that has been hanging in the closet since my birthday.   It was such an  accidental moment that created this look. I purchased this skirt from Eloquii with full intentions to wear it with a fun bright tank, but when I was arranging my closet the pieces fell together and the angels singed, "Ahhhhhhhhh"... Do you have this type of moment?

So let me tell you something about this skirt from Eloquii!! Chile.... Get it!! That is All!!  I was a little hesitate about getting into the scuba material life, but this skirt changed my entire mind.  I went down a size because most of the Eloquii items run large in the waist area for me. And since I wanted a  high waist look, I got just that.   Want the skit? Click the link below.

 Get the Skirt!!

This has to be one of my favorite mixed prints looks to date. I stayed with the base colors of black and white for my print mixing.  There're several rules to mixing prints but I only stick to one in particular which is, “Find your Base Color”. This is the primary color that dominates the pieces.  Once your base color has been established your wardrobe will become endless.

To add a little more edge to the look, I went with my new favorite...My White Moto from JCPenny. Now on Sale!! Click Here

And My Favorite piece from Sweet Home Bling. The Palm Royal Collection is a awesome!

Did you hear? I'm a finalist in the Redbook Magazine Real Style Real omen Contest!! Clink my link to vote for me to grace the cover! And please share! So many wonderful thing have been happening for me lately, I'm felling blessed beyond measure and I want to say thank you all for the love and support!

Introducing Harper and Liv: New Plus Size Brand

A couple weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of new plus size brand, harper + liv. First, I can’t tell how thrilled I was to receive such an honorable treat only to turn it down because I didn’t live in New York (insert sad face).   Nevertheless, I kept in close contact with the brand and now I have the great pleasure to introduce you to new plus size brand. 

The harper + liv brand is definitely winning my heart with its blend of Tropical Paradise meets City Sleek. And coming from the prestigious family of the Perry Ellis International brand, I’m expecting only the best in design and fabric.  Here are a couple of my favorite pieces from the Summer 2015 coming in May.

The Tropics  are EVERYWHERE this season. 
 I am loving all the tropical influences of bright green palm trees, vibrant tropical flowers and easy island living, it just makes me ready for a full on vacation in Bahamas.

Remember what I said about the tropics and the city.  This printed jumpsuit and shorts are perfect for the a causal Saturday afternoon. I would definitely wear these to a city festival, craft show or day of shopping.  

Of course,  if you can't make it to the tropics, why not get into the mindset.  Enjoy some pieces that put you in the mood like this easy swing tank and skirt (below).  The skirt with a tank or crop is just right for a evening night out in Miami.  Pair with the sign tank and have a wear it as a matching set, which is very popular this year. 

Of course may ever come over my love for a great cover up or kimono.  
I can see these two in my beach vacation bag ready to hit the sand with a great bikini and then later for a stroll in town.   Either way the options are endless and vacation packing should be extremely easy with this collection.  They range in price from $39-$129 and will be available at Dillards in store and online. 

What do you think?  Which are your favorite? How would you wear them?

Let me Know!!

Three Looks featuring Rebdolls Midi Set

Happy Friday!!!

Last week, I teamed up with eleven other plus size bloggers and created our own color challenge.  It was so much fun and I had a chance to wear my signature color of course.  Yellow is my jam! The ladies and I were inspired to bring in spring with various shades from the OPI Hawaiian collection. T Take a look at the recap here.  For the challenge, I got a chance to wear a  two piece midi from Rebdolls that I won in a contest,  the two appeared as a dress because of my short torso :( and many of my readers wanted to the set broken up...So I decided to create this post this week to show you a couple ways you can wear any 2 pieces set for a weekend getaway.  BTW..This is going in the suitcase for June's Full Figure Fashion Week.  

Take a look at my Three Fun Weekend looks with the Rebdolls midi set. 

The first look is all about a little sass with a crop top.  I'm loving the wide strap crop tops that covers the bra straps and had great coverage for those pesky little fat pockets.

Seriously though....I was loving this outfit. 
Crop: Rebdolls (Sold Out)| Skirt: Fashion to Figure (Sold Out)| Necklace: Rocksbox!! Use My Code: prettypluspepxoxo to join and your first month is free!!

Fancy!!! Thanks Rocksbox!

Another look was full on causal.  Pair a bright bottom with a denim top and look effortless chic.  I even thought about tying the shirt up and throwing on a nude pump for a sexy date night look.  Maybe next time.
Top: Target| Skirt: Rebdolls| Bag: Gifted| Shoes: DSW (Old)

Lastly but not least, the look that started the post. Take a look and let me know what you think. Because of my short torso, the midi tucked perfectly under my breast and the crop just hanged over to create this seamless look. To see more check out my post here.
How would you mix this up?  Ready for a weekend getaway?

Have Fun!!!

Recap: The #PSOPIChallenge: Plus Size Edition

Did your timeline experience a surge of Plus Size Beauties Slaying Spring Colors yesterday?

  12 Plus Size Bloggers X 12 Spring Colors from the Pop Sugar OPI Challenge equaled to One Awesome Collaboration.  I immediately fell in love with the entire concept of this post last month from the popular fashion site, but felt a certain kind of way when I didn’t see any plus size women represented in the street style collection.  
Was it that, plus size women are not into Spring colors? Spring fashion?  
Why were we not represented in this post?
