Recently I did a post for Juicy Magazine (10 Other Black Girls Who Rock) and regretfully I should have included Cassandra Ventura. Cassie is smoking hot in IDOL Magazine, a British glossy, for their Illuminati Fall/Winter Issue. Clever title I must say.
She’s shot in lavish jewels, haute couture pieces, paired with fierce hair and makeup. Perhaps this is a sign that she will put down the mic and grab a modeling portfolio because she’s definitely showing tons of model behavior.
For obvious reasons I’ve been a huge fan of Dazed+Confused magazine. They’re always pushing the fashion envelope over the industry imaginary ledge by producing imagery that is not only eye catching but stunning and thought provoking. Continue reading →
Will Smith said it best when giving life advice, “You can tell how far in life you’ll go by the 5 people you spend the most amount of time with.”
One of my five people happen to be the oh so curvy, confident, and chic fashion blogger, Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista. Besides being my mentor, she’s basically the curvy blogger’s favorite curvy blogger. She knows what brands we should be crushing on, who should care less about, and what looks good on every curvy frame. So it’s only right that she has penned her first e-book, Curvy.Confident.Chic.

I am totally swooning with excitement over the newest Holiday Collection by one of my fav plus size boutiques, Monif C. This collection totally embodies glitz, glamour, and just pure fabulousness. That’s us right?! Each piece is sexy without loosing sight that we’re still curvy and we shouldn’t be showing all our rolls to the world. I am a huge fan of plus size brands that are body conscious.
What’s even better is that there are 4 dresses that totally capture the four characters of SATC and what they would wear if they were plus size. The items retail between $200-250 and you can pre-order them now for shipment as early as November 18th. My only beef is that the “Samantha” dress that I want doesn’t ship until December 5th. Y’all know I love me some sequins! Doesn’t Monif know that the Holidays begin with my birthday on November 4th. I am hoping my local plus size boutique, K Staton in Hampden, has this collection before that.
When my besties, mua @BethanyTownes, told me about this video I was like oh ok. Dude who is covered in tattoos (head to toe) gets a makeover courtesy of Dermablend. After watching this, it puts a whole new meaning to finding the perfect concealer. I am speechless, watch the video … Continue reading →
Just one sentence describes this collection. It’s classic Versace. Sleek leather pieces paired with loud colorful and quite gaudy prints on a small silouette. Unlike Lanvin who makes clothes for the masses, Versace is known for the 2′s and 4′s of fashion. Dontella made it clear in 2008 that a plus size line was not in the brand’s future. Regardless, I’m sure there will still be a stampede to the front of the line at the doors of H&M on November 17th.
Have a look at the entire collection below which features the advertising campaigns, women and men’s clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, and even a pillow. Continue reading →
