I'm Georgette a 43 year old curvy woman living in the City of Brotherly Love & Sisterly Affection (Philadelphia) seeking to show other plus size divas that WE too have style and do not need to compromise our integrity to look good. I realize there are so many other women like me who have struggled in this area, and decided to blog my journey. So welcome to my blog and remember...style has no AGE or SIZE!

TGIF!!!

This past week, I was going through my sandals and I noticed something…they were all FLAT! Over the years I convinced myself that I would fall if I wore wedges or heels, so I shied away from them. Now Ive decided to move outside my comfort zone and add some height to my summer shoe wardrobe. Here are a few pairs of shoes I’m loving right now.

Are you going to give wedges or heels a try this summer? Have a great weekend!

One of my favorite summer items is the maxi dress. The maxi dress is so versatile and comfortable. Add heels and a fun clutch and you have a date night outfit . Add a light blazer or sweater and you have the perfect casual Friday outfit.

Here are a few maxi dresses I’m currently loving. Which dress do you like and how would you wear it? Have a great evening!

Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!

When I saw this Bespoke white tuxedo jacket from Simply Be it was love at first sight! Armed with my 40% off coupon I placed my order and patiently waited for the jacket to come. After almost waiting 2 weeks for the jacket, it finally arrived. Lemme tell ya it was worth the wait! Everything from the cut to the fabric is outstanding. It’s not flimsy or boxy. It’s a structured blazer that flatters your curves. The jacket can be dressed up with heels or down with jeans. And it’s completely appropriate for the workplace. The tuxedo jacket is definitely one of those “must have” items for your wardrobe.

How would you wear a tuxedo jacket? Have a great evening!

Since the weather was gorgeous yesterday, I spent the day hanging out with my godchildren Alex and Skylar. It’s been a blast watching them grow into sweet kids. They have me completely wrapped around their finger and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
