Its Getting Hot In HERE: Swimsuit Edition

Hey Beauties,

So I’m back to show off some of my swimsuit faves and looks. First off let me give a round of applause to the 2015 swimwear collections across the Plus Size community thus far. I’m just so in love that I will be purchasing so many different styles and colors, it’s only right!

So just recently I went on a 4 day cruise to Nassau, Bahamas with Carnival Fantasy. And of course I had to tryout some new and daring swimsuits.

My first look was put together with pieces from Rue21 Plus and Monif C.

013

The top is no longer available on the website 😦 But I’m sure it will be back because of popular demand. But you can take a look at some of their collection by clicking below

Rue21 Plus

The bottoms are apart of Monif C’s Sea collection and it’s called “Sao Paulo” High-Waisted Plus Size Bikini Brief-Neon Green. Lucky for you they are still in stock and ready for purchase …FYI they have different colors as well. Just click the link below.

Also I was browsing on Swimsuitsforall and stumbled across Gabifresh For Swim Sexy swimsuits. I instantly fell in love but then I found this Chevron lovely two piece that I just had to have. And honey believe me it was worth every dime. The top supported me well and also the bottoms provided great support. It was such a head turner!!! Take a look below

Black never gets old

Hello beauties,

So just recently I was looking through my closets for a pop of color item to pair with some black ankle jeans for a night on the town and to my surprise I came up empty :(. I got to thinking is my wardrobe that dull and plain that I couldn’t find one item other BLACK to piece together? I immediately got online and searched for new and refreshing items with color. While doing so I couldn’t help but revert back to that one black shirt or the little black dress(which by the way every girl needs).

Im trying to be delivered from black …..

So here it is going into the second week of March and weather has been feeling wonderful, and I have no items to brighten up the world. I smell a intense shopping date in the near future because I cannot be limited to just black. However black is not and will not ever be dismissed from my wardrobe. To me its so airy and appealing, while being edgy and sexy! About two weeks ago I created an all black ensemble for a girls night out, on one of the windiest nights in Charlotte. I promise you this outfit was so last minute but just right…babyyyyyy I was never so happy to have covered up on that night, while still looking fashionable might I add.

Outfit details:

Jacket: ItsFashionMetro

Top: Black cami

Bottoms: Torrid Stiletto Skinny (similar)

Shoes- DSW booties

Necklace- Aldo Accessories

Bag of choice- Oversized wristlet from Old Navy

I guess I just wanted to say that in my mind black never gets old because when in doubt I sure do run to some black real quick and I make it into something so wonderful, but a little color doesn’t hurt!

Until next time

On no another Store CLOSING…..deb Shops

Hello beauties,

I’m back with another update. So just the other day I was at a local mall and minding my own business shopping and spending money as usual, and I stumbled into a store I haven’t shopped in since being in West Virginia. Deb Shops, and to my surprise the sign in the window said

Deb-Shops-Out-of-Biz-image3

This is a total shock since the store has been around since the early 1930s. The actual sale is 30-50% off the lowest ticketed price. This store carries junior and plus sizes. So beauties you may want to go and catch those sales before the store officially closes down for good. Want more on deb shops and why it closed head over to plus model mag for their story

http://www.plus-model-mag.com/2015/01/macys-close-14-stores-deb-shops-officially-going-business/.

The website has been shut down so you have to visit the store for the goods. Wow all of these great Plus size stores are going out of business sheesh. Well until next time beauties.

The ‘New’ Side Chick: I Was Her

Nothing but truths!

Miss T. N. king

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing.

I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to…

Forever 21 Reviews: The Freakin Weekend

Hey Beauties,

I know it has been a minute since I posted but I have to show you all how I rocked my F21 pieces. Over this past weekend I attended a 21st birthday party and decided to wear one of my crops tops(cream colored). I paired it with some trousers from ASOS Curve that I bought a few years back. Check it out below:Image

The crop tops are good, but they do roll up maybe its the tops way of telling me that I need to loose a little more tummy….. haha but overall I felt confident and cute in this top cant wait to rock my green one.

Here is the link for the crop top: http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=plus&Category=plus_tops&ProductID=2000088397&VariantID= 

 

Let me point out that here in NC and SC the temperature was in the mid 80s. So I decided to try F21s Whimsical Brush Stroke Shorts. These shorts fit perfect and created some movement. I paired it with a simple cami top (Orange) only because ther was a hint of orange that was in the shorts and plus who doesn’t love a POP of color. Check it out:Image

 

Just an FYI the shorts are sold out on the website 😦
