Girl About Town

Belle Boss Jewelry had the opportunity to do its first vendor event at the Picture Perfect fashion show last Saturday at Societe. It was so much fun and an amazing opportunity to network with other businesswomen. I had the cutest little table set up - everything glittery and pink - to showcase my fabulous earrings. The event was very cute and it was so inspiring to see other small businesses and what they had to offer. I made a lot of sales and was surprised I had inventory left. I loved my casual outfit, which was combination of comfort and trends. I wore a faux leather tank, galaxy cross leggings, and studded jelly flats. The night ended with dinner at Nikkos Japanese Steakhouse and then a night on the town for my bestie's, Crystal, birthday.

Swimsuits For All Review

Summer means sun, tanning, vacations, beaches, cookouts, pool parties, and waterparks! As a plus size woman, I know the pain and frustration of swimsuit shopping. Many retail stores carry plus size swimsuits that have lackluster, boring, ancient silhouettes. Just because we're bigger girls doesn't mean we can't have fashionable swimwear options. Then there comes the psychological part of feeling fat and uncomfortable in a swimsuit. Trust me, I've been there! I had the amazing opportunity to work with Swimsuits For All, who carry hundreds of fashionable swimsuits to fit every body type for the style savvy fatshionista. I was amazed at all of the pictures on their Instagram of customers flaunting their curves in their swimsuits and I told myself, "Mia, you are going to get a freaking bikini." I selected two fabulous swimsuits for review - a black fringe one piece and a leopard bikini with high waisted bottoms. I teamed up with a local photographer, Chris Miles, to be a model for a day, which is so not my thing. Chris e-mailed me months ago saying he wanted to work with me because he sees how I motivate young women to feel confident in their skin, so it was only right to have someone who supported me be my photographer. I always wanted to reach a certain goal weight before I rocked a bikini, but why let something like that hinder me from such a thing. I never felt more beautiful, confident, and sexy than I did at the moment in the leopard bikini - rolls, arm fat, and a big stomach. Take a look at all the fun below.

The black fringe suit features a halter style strap that can be removed to be strapless. I love that feature because it doesn't get in the way of tanning and you won't have an awful tan line like I did. I ordered a size 22, which fit perfect! Fringe is such a big trend right now and one of my personal favorites. The leopard swimsuit was my absolute favorite, however, the top doesn't give much support for bigger busts. I am normally a size 22, and ordered the leopard swimsuit in a 18. (I ordered a 22 in a white swimsuit and the bottoms were so saggy and big, so knew to go down a few sizes) The bikini bottom doesn't really suck you in, which I didn't really like considering my stomach is my "problem area." Overall, I was very impressed at their selections and also their mission to make plus size women feel sexy and confident.

I hope my self accomplishment motivates and empowers you to take risks and go against the grain. Ultimately, you have to do what makes you happy and say screw what society says! BIG GIRLS YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

Little White Dress

Anxious for a white party, I wore the "Bianca" dress from Twelve Boutique while stepping out on the town with my best friend, Crystal. I was never a fan of skater skirts and dresses, but you can't knock it until you try it. This silhouette is very flattering on plus size women because it hides the tummy in the pleats. I felt super beautiful and confident. My dress features a deep v-cut mesh panel with black trim. Twelve Boutique has this dress on sale for $20 sizes 1X-4X. I love how the black adds a stark contrast. White dresses are so fun to accessorize because of the blank canvas. I chose "Queen of the Jungle" earrings from Belle Boss Jewelry, a gold cuff, and black sling backs. I'm looking for more white dresses to wear to two upcoming white events this summer. Any suggestions? I hope you all love this look as much as I did.

Pledge Allegiance To My Swag

I love Fourth of July because of all the fun, patriotic outfits people put together. I purchased this red, white, and blue body con dress from ASOS almost a month ago to wear just for this occasion. (For those who were inquiring about sizing, I ordered this dress in a US 14) The look was complete with  voluminous curls, "G.I. Jane" earrings from Belle Boss Jewelry, fringe booties, and a "Red Racer" lip from MAC. How was everyone's Fourth? Hope you ate some yummy cookout foods and saw some fireworks.
