More Sequins Please!

Monday, December 28, 2015

Hey Pretty Girls!

Today is another special holiday post featuring some shine of course.  So you may may realize now, that I kinda have a thing for sequins. Really? like what girl doesn't?  Plus today I'm collaborating with two of my favorite ladies, Georgette of Grown and Curvy Woman,  Bianca of  Curvaceouslybee and Jeniese of The Jenesaisquoi to share our sequin's love.

My sequins look is a little something special from my vintage closet.  This eighties duster was a great find from a local thrift store, little to no visible damage and a great fit.  From the moment I saw it, I knew I was about channel my inner Donna Summer or Chaka Khan.  Put me under the spotlight and let me work the room in this number filled with sparkle. I paired it with my jeans from Your Clothing ( sold out)similar pair below, cami and patent pumps for more shine.  

And if you haven't noticed, I amped up the style with some new big hair.  I'm wearing Sensationnel 100% Virgin Remi Bare & Natural Jerry Bohemian.  I picked it up from the local beauty supply store.  I love the hair, the look and texture mimics my hair fairly nicely unfortunately it has some shedding and a serious tangle issue, which can be a problem in my day to day life. But I shall continue in my search for the perfect hair.

Workplace Cheer!

Wednesday, December 23, 2015
Hey Pretty Girl!

Yes, the holidays are in full blast now. Yes. The parties are in full swing and if you're like me.. you maybe currently looking in your closet wondering, "How can I still be festive for the holiday and work place appropriate?" I can't wear my sequin leggings and fuzzy sweater to the day job. Seriously,  I wish I could wonder around my workday wearing a ugly Christmas sweater, my Rudolph nose and sequins Sperry's. Unfortunately, I'm not on that train yet ( keyword:yet).  For now, It is all about adding festive touches to your work look to keep it all corporately classy and holiday fun.

I personally love to play with color to bring in the holiday cheer and this skirt from Eloquii does just that.  My fun color skirt is gone, but I have been pondering the thought of getting the black (here) because this is such a awesome piece. Pair with my Lane Bryant blazer and leopard pumps, created just the right look.

 What do you think?

NYE Mermaid: A Holiday #DashandBash Lookbook with Lane Bryant

Monday, December 7, 2015

Good Morning Pretty Luvs!

The holiday season is a festive time filled with family, cocktails, smiles, sparkle and shine.  This is my favorite time of the year. It's when I feel completely comfortable wearing every sequined, velvet, sheer and shimmery item in my closet without a second thought.  Maybe not all at the same time.. well actually you can, but that is for another discussion this month. Your holiday social calendar may include all kind of events to attend and right now your thinking, "What will I ever wear?  In the words of Olivia Pope, "It's Handled". A couple of my blogger boos (Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman, Jeniese from The Jenesaisquoi,Sandra from La Pecosa PreciosaDarlene from Suits, Heels and Curves, and Jaime from Style over Size) and I partnered up with Lane for the Ultimate Holiday Look book. See it Here!

So when the opportunity to be a sequin mermaid crosses your path, you know there's only thing to say.....LET'S RING IN THE NEW YEAR!

I chose a look for NYE night on the town. That's right the only thing I want bring to the party are the fireworks and this outfit has some boom.  This Sequin Maxi from fits like a dream, the mermaid shaping is definitely a little competition for Ariel. It has just enough spandex to cause heart failure and just enough length to dance all night when you take your shoes off.  In continuing my fireworks theme, I went with the "#IMNOANGEL tee, because well...You Know. And for those chilling evenings, I finished the look with the multi functional Draped Front Blazer. You will see this item several time in my closet. I've declared it the perfect black blazer for 2016.

Thank you Lane Bryant!!

 Six Themes + Six Bloggers = SIX FABULOUS LOOKS.

    Plaid Sophistication: Bee and Pep Does Plaid #4

    Monday, November 30, 2015
    Hey Luvs!!

    This is my last installment of Plaid Madness with Curvaceouslybee for our "Bee and Pep does Plaid" Collaboration.  For my last look, I wanted to being some sophistication to a piece I would normally wear casually. This open front cardigan from was a gift from my mommy last year for my birthday.  It the perfect everyday sweater for the chilly winter season.  Usually I pair this item with my favorite trousers or jeans, but this time I wanted something with a little more..."Hey There!" By pairing the cardigan with this old dress from Target, I was able to accomplish the goal of  Plaid Sophistication like a winner. 

    This dress is about 3 years old but Christopher and Banks (click here) has one that is very similar and on sale! The basic black sheath dress is a  wardrobe staple piece. Every woman should have one inside her closet. The open cardigan from New Directions sold inside Belk's (click here)is also on sale and definitely a item to place in the wardrobe for season transitions and cozy chic looks. It's also sold in red buffalo plaid.
