There’s very few times I can remember getting excited about clothes that require me to put on nude itchy stockings and uncomfortable cute strappy heels. But today…was different!
When I saw this new holiday collection from Rum & Coke on my blogger boo’s site (TheCurvyFashionista), I knew I had to not only share with you but smack myself in the forehead for not knowing that this plus size label existed.
Who needs 25 coats? In real life, no one. But…I am sure you need at least five in this massive winter coat guide that I’ve created of the best winter coats for women.
As much as I hate the fact that I only made it to the beach twice this summer, and the fact that the sun sets at like 12 noon these days, winter is approaching quickly! Can you say polar vortex 2014 (the second coming). I’ve sadly put all of my summer clothes in storage (aka under my bed) and I’m now on the hunt for the perfect coats!
I posted about Beyonce sending me a sweatshirt made of unicorn hairs last week. And I am happy to report that it still feels amazing even after washing it. Unfortunately those unicorn hairs come with a pretty steep price tag that most of you all are not willing to pay.
The Cake By The Pound sweatshirt is for sale on Beyonce.com for (wait for it) $65! YIKES, I know right. As I mentioned, it’s made from unicorn hairs! But some of you don’t care one lick about those unique unicorn hairs and I felt bad about it.
So I searched the Internets (because Black people make everything plural) and I FOUND IT!
I can’t believe that we’re already approaching the holiday season. I went into a store yesterday and there were Christmas decorations EVERYWHERE! Artificial pine trees, shiny bells and bright lights have officially invaded our space. Soon your inbox will be flooded with holiday party invites and you’ll be asking yourself, “what I am going to wear?” more times than you can remember.
Well I’m not waiting until the last-minute this year. I was on a mission to find the perfect holiday dress that could be transformed into different looks.
Ladies how many times do we get excited when our hubbies, or boyfriends buys us a gift just because? You know that gift he gets you on a random Wednesday. Or that gift just to say how proud he is of you. I don’t know about you but I know I love when my guy writes me little notes, or brings me a rose, or buys me slippers because he knows how my feet freeze when it gets cold outside. It really is the thought that counts!
But what if we flipped it and bought our guys a “just because” gift. I’m sure not only would he appreciate it, but would be completely surprised. So we over here at GIG made a list of awesome “just because” gifts for your boyfriend.
