Pretty Period.

I had the amazing opportunity to do a joint photoshoot with my best friend, Crystal. We both received the "Pretty Period" baseball jersey from Flaws of Couture's "Pretty Period Collection." If you're unfamiliar with FOC, it's a clothing line created by two Canadian sisters to promote self esteem and celebrate women of every size. Like many other fabulous plus size women I've been told, "You're pretty for a big girl" and I'm wondering if I was insulted or complimented. However, the way my confidence and genes are set up, I know I'm pretty period. Flaws of Couture's statement clothing allows you to rock your confidence proudly. Get into their movement and shop today.

Love Wearing All Black, You Should See My Closet

I have been completely obsessed with mid-section cutout dresses. It shows just enough skin without feeling too self conscious about your tummy being bared in a crop top. I absolutely love this little black dress from Sophisticated Divas Boutique. The ruching along the front hides your trouble areas and gives an appearance of a bigger booty. The slinky, stretch light material made it very comfortable. For a pop of color, I wore leopard platforms and a wine lip. I straightened my Eurasian Wavy hair from Evolve Virgin Hair for the first time and absolutely LOVE how silky and shiny it looks. I've had the install for a little over a month and by far this is my favorite hair. Check out Sophisticated Divas Boutique to add this LBD to your wardrobe.






Florals in the Winter

Who says florals are for spring and summer? Florals can still be incorporated in your winter wardrobe while making a big, chic statement. The key to pulling this off is looking for dark romantic florals. I fell in love with this polo neck t-shirt from Forever 21+. I wanted this pale pink skater skirt months ago, but couldn't locate my size and there it was at my local Forever 21. It was a sign, so I scooped both pieces and created this outfit while at the register. Leather thigh high boots and a quilted clutch added a touch edge and a matching pink turban headband completed the look! I love playing with makeup and whipped up a fall lip consisting of Nightmoth lipliner, Styled In Sepia lipstick, and Viva Glam Nicki 2. Hope you enjoy my look!

Wearing Furs Like It's Snowing in the South

With dropping temperatures, it's definitely appropriate to bring out a faux fur to keep warm during those fun party nights. I recently purchased a red and black striped faux fur coat from BooHoo. I am absolutely in love with its luxurious look and feel. It's definitely a bold statement piece yet fun and flirty. I paired it with my little black dress from By Grisel's holiday's collection for Rebdolls, which I featured in a previous blog post.



Keep Calm and Wear Evolve

Keep calm and wear Evolve! I'm a proud brand ambassador for Evolve Virgin Hair Boutique located right here in Charlotte (3123 N Davidson Street). Unlike many hair companies, Evolve has a chic storefront in the artsy NoDa area where you can shop different textures and even order hair. I was apart of a photoshoot for the company alongside three other fabulous women a few weeks ago. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen my long tresses styled in a middle part. This is probably my favorite hair to date because it's low maintenance. I'm currently wearing the Eurasian Wavy in a medium coarse texture in 24", 26", and 2 28". I was very skeptical about the hair texture because I'm so used to wearing Brazilian hair, but the sheen, luster, and thickness blends so well with my natural hair and looks so natural. Evolve doesn't stop at just virgin hair - they carry haircare supplies, Hairfinity pills, and mink eyelashes.  Here are some amazing photos from the photoshoot.






By Grisel Holiday Collection

Tis' the season to be jolly ... and stylish. The exclusive Grisel Holiday Collection for Rebdolls premieres tomorrow. There is no excuse not to be fabulous and holiday party ready with these statement dresses. One of my favorite textures, velvet, is the theme for this collection. The deep jewel tones are perfect for the holiday season. The collection is available up to a size 4X and keeps your pockets happy with everything less than $50. The "Fantasy" dress caught my attention simply because of the popular wine tone and the turtleneck. I am beyond anxious to receive my "Velvet Cut-Out Dress." Which one is your favorite?





Day to Night

With a busy schedule I have to make my day time outfits easy to transition to date night or a night out with my girls. I purchase staple pieces for my wardrobe that I can mix and match to create more looks. This fall I'm a fan of skater skirts (especially black ones) and comfy sweaters. Shoes and a clutch are essentials to take your look day to night. I wore a comfy sweater with shredded details paired with velvet skater skirt and chunky boots during the day with a fringe shoulder bag. To switch up the look, I rocked some sky high leopard platforms and a matching clutch. My super long tresses are from, Evolve Hair Boutique, in Charlotte. I'm so excited to be the face of their brand. I'm rocking their Eurasian Wavy texture and I'm loving it more than any hair I've ever worn before. It's super soft and manageable. I hope you're inspired to play around in your wardrobe and create some amazing looks of your own.

GHOE 2K14

Aggies came near and far to celebrate yet another action packed homecoming. I had the pleasure to bring some of my best friends from home with me to share my experience. We all had an amazing time starting with the roadtrip from Charlotte to Greensboro, the crazy yard festivities, to our night out on the town. I recently changed my look by going for an assmyetrical sleek bob and this sudden obsession with red nail polish. Black and white outfits always complement red so well, so both my day and night looks embodied those details. I wore a crochet lace bomber jacket and leather skater skirt wth rose patterned tights and chunky combat boots. Adding a touch of glitz, I rocked my two faux Chanel pins. My night time look for a party I hosted was really clean with a creme oversized blazer, lace bodysuit, and a bodycon skirt with lace details. Leather and lace are my favorite textures. I was feeling inspired by having red nails, so a Ruby Woo lip was my signature day and night. I can't wait to do it all again next year.
