Big Fat Summer Challenge: Shorts Shorts & Sleeveless tops

For my next style challenge for #BFSC (catch up here), I decided to knock out two trends in the same post — short shorts and sleeveless tops. The sleeveless part isn’t a big deal at all. My arms have inherited a little extra flab but it’s like 109 degrees out. So. Umm. Yeah. But these short shorts will probably never see…

Big Fat Summer Challenge: Hi-Waisted Bottoms

If you’re a regular readie you know that I joined Jasifer’s style challenge for us big girls. If you’re just tuning into my blog, where I over share on occasions, catch up by reading this post. I’m really geeked, excited, pumped, elated — basically doing-fashionable-cartwheels and all hype about this one. It’s the first challenge where I am certain I…

[style diary] Peplum Bows

Here’s #2 post featuring my blue mini (read #1 post here). I originally thought to wear this to my Shop and Swap event, BUT if you read my blog you know that plans change. I say this to say, don’t be surprised to see me out in this look, which I’m calling Peplum Bows, since it has not made a cameo at an event yet.

All The Reason You Should Be Shopping At The Loft [VIDEO]

In case you haven’t noticed, I am trying to do more videos on GIG and really get more familiar in front of the camera. I’d like to even maybe have a cool weekly video segment sponsored by some fabulous brand. Y’all keep me in your prayers. I had the opportunity to visit the new LOFT store in Pikesville, MD. I…

[style diary] Linen Ties by Land’s End

I am really showing off wearing all of these skirts and dresses. I can remember my middle school days — screaming and stomping down the steps because I didn’t want to put that picture day dress on. Or it may have been that my mother just went overboard matching my clothes with the bows and ribbons on my hair. But…

Guess Who’s Got A New Pair Of Sneakers That She Designed Herself?

Back in March I spent hours one night designing my own sneakers, via the NIKEiD Facebook app — (read that post here). After spreading the word about the new Nike Facebook app, I was given a gift certificate for a free pair of sneakers. YO! Let me tell you how on time this is? My old sneakers smell like old garbage…

[style diary] A Perfect Stitch: Kohl’s Spring Trends Challenge

You guys know I love a good style challenge. But I won’t lie, this challenge was tricky. I was selected as one of the bloggers to interpret Kohl’s ‘Open Stitch’ trend which consisted of all of the fabrics I never really wear – knits, lace, and crochet. But you guys know me, regardless of my task I was still excited…

A Chartreuse Skirt + In My Size = Cuteness!

I’m not a stylist by any stretch of the word. I just love clothes, I have a crazy huge magazine collection, and a few of my good girlfriends have really great style. Usually my style inspiration comes from them, or piecing different trends that I feel comfortable wrapping around my curves. You would think that at 35 I would have…

[style diary] Out with the old in with COLOR

There was a day not long ago where you wouldn’t catch me in anything but black or grey. My closet over flowed with dull boring colors and regular pieces not fit for any blogger. Well, I still own a great amount of dull colors but I’ve been quite daring since I started blogging. As I grew older I realized that…
