Shine on

I purchased this matching set during the closet sale back in August from Gabifresh. I loved the colors and knew with just a simple knot, it could go from office to happy hour. Add a pop of color/texture with a pair of suede booties and you're good to go.

Hola! Hope everyone is doing well! I'm back with another high/low look. I initially saw this faux suede dress in-store at Charlotte Russe. It is surprisingly a nice weight for the price and such a gorgeous shade of burgundy. On the model, it's shown with over the knee boots, but I wanted an excuse to wear these snakeskin, mid calf Giuseppe Zanotti boots. Zanotti is one of my favorite shoe brands and so much more comfortable than other high end shoe designers....*coughs* Louboutin *coughs*.

When El Nino finally hits Los Angeles, I will be pairing this with tights, a turtleneck and a pair of chunky boots. Until then, this is what fall in LA looks like folks!

*My lippie is Nightmoth liner from MAC and Black Cherry lipstick from Milani. Every now and again, it's fun to match your lip to an outfit.

Waiting on Winter, LA edition

Hello All! Even though winter will be here before we know it, LA hasn't gotten the memo. While I patiently wait to wear my cozy sweaters and boots, I wanted to give y'all a glimpse of what I'm looking forward to wearing when these 80 degree temps decide to drop.

I fell in love with this dress at 1st sight. Amazing pattern, vivid colors, awesome fit...what's not to love?? While I was able to easily fit the size 14, I wish Diane von Furstenberg would consider expanding into plus sizes; so many of her designs would transform beautifully. So many brands are missing out and it's a shame.

Lace It Up

Just like every other wide calved woman, this time of year can drive you crazy looking for stylish, knee length boots. I first saw these boots on Chante's Instagram and it was love at first sight. I ordered and had them sent to my local Torrid store. I will be very honest: I was quite skeptical at the calf measurements provided on the site and did not think they would fit my 19inch calves. I figured if they didn't fit, I could immediately return them while at the store. In my opinion, these boots are so much better in person than in pics. The heel is sturdy and if you're a heel wearer, like myself, you will find these very comfortable. I see that they are no longer on the site, but I'm hoping Torrid brings them back!

Boots: Torrid (sold out)
Romper: Charlotte Russe (not online)
Clutch: Vendor in Brooklyn

*This romper is from Charlotte Russe (in store), found on the clearance rack. It was $10 and not the best fit. Hindsight shows me that I will be adding a belt next time.

Well Fall is officially here; however Los Angeles failed to read the memo. The idea of posting my upcoming Fall looks makes my skin tingle with the hint of heat rash, but I'm forcing my way through. I will say that I am looking forward to cooler temps and pushing my boundaries when it comes to layering. For example, this duster and palazzo pants set from Zelie For She will be perfect with a turtleneck and open toe booties. Of course I had to style it in my own way and I'm loving the look of the duster tied in the middle.

Happy September! I always dread the end of summer, but luckily I live in LA and summer lasts just a bit longer than the rest of the country (I'm not looking at you Texas and Florida). With a new season approaching us, I'm clinging on to these last few weeks of summer and all the freedom it brings. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen this look before but I love it so much, I felt it was worth repeating.  I really enjoy this toned down look and will be doing more of this. Now don't get me wrong; I still love my pattern/print mixing, but it's nice to step out of your own box every now and again.

*I own several Babooshka items and LOVE them all. They are the originators of the "side split tee", despite what these Insta boutiques have you thinking. The quality and fit are amazing.

Happy August! Couple of quick snaps featuring this romper I quickly fell in love with from New York and Company. I rarely go into the mall these days (unless it's to pick up something very specific) and was pleasantly surprised to find this romper. It was the last one and in my size, so I took that as a sign. Enjoy!!! 

Romper: Here
Sandals: Very old Tory Burch. I located a pair here.

Heatwave Los Angeles

Hey Y'all! So doesn't it seem like the East Coast gets all the blogger love? TiffanyMonique and I are changing that on August 9th. Come join us for a day of fun in the sun, at one of LA's most popular beaches. This will be a super laid back, relaxed event, so feel free to bring your beach gear and a body positive friend or 2. Hope to see you there! Check out my Facebook page for further details.

*Directions: Take the Santa Monica Freeway 10West until it turns into PCH. Head North on PCH and park in parking lot #7. You will find a cafe and beach rentals at this location. Walk straight onto the beach and you will us near the shore. If the lot is full, parking lot #6 is close*

Gwynnie Bee

As a woman with a very extensive closet, the concept of Gwynnie Bee can be a slippery slope. If you're not aware, Gwynnie Bee is a monthly clothing subscription for sizes 10-32. My closet is already bursting at the seams, but Gywnnie Bee is fantastic for trying new brands, some that I've never heard of. This can be dangerous if you're a fashion lover like me, but what's life without a bit of danger?? So basically it works like this: You sign up, completely filling out sizing information and check a few boxes regarding your personal style. Gwynnie Bee makes suggestions or you just browse through the site, making your own selections. In a few days, your package arrives (it's like Christmas every month!), you wear your fabulous outfit and send it back when you finish. They provide shipping labels and bags to make returns super easy. If you happen to fall in love with a piece, there's also an option to purchase. As I mentioned above, this can get super dangerous, super quick! I love having fashion options and Gwynnie Bee provides just that: Options.
