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!

When I was little my mom would say I had “bat legs”; full legs that taper down to small ankles. As silly as it sounds, for years I was very self conscious about my ankles.  I always felt awkward having a big body and tiny ankles.   For years I would wear black ankle boots with black tights to try and camouflage them.  I had convinced myself that my ankles were too small to wear  booties without tights.   After years of agonizing about my ankles, I’ve decided to let it go.  No amount of hand wringing is going to make my ankles bigger.  So instead of obsessing about how my legs look in ankle boots, I’m just going to wear them and keep it moving.  Besides I highly doubt anyone cares about my “bat legs”!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Tuesday all

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Over the weekend I had the pleasure of being the maid of honor in my older sister Virgie’s wedding.  My sister’s wedding was beautiful and full of love.  I am beyond happy that she married the love of her life my new brother in law Tyrone.

While I thoroughly enjoyed my sister’s wedding on Sunday, the weather was far from Fall like.  Since the weather has been flip flopping, I’ve been extending the life of some of my favorite Summer pieces like these Eloquii pants.  In my previous post I raved about how amazing these pants are and I wanted to show how versatile they are.   It was so easy to make them Fall ready by adding a long sleeve shirt, ankle boots and a denim jacket. As Fall progresses, I plan to wear them with tights and a turtleneck to ward off  falling temperatures. Even better, the pants are now 40% off at Eloquii when you use code ONEDAY!

Have a wonderful day!

When people usually think of velvet, images of grandma’s curtains probably pop in their heads.  While velvet has gotten a bad rap, this seasons crop of new offerings will definitely change that.  From kimonos to boots there are are great velvet pieces to add to your Fall wardrobe.  It’s also a trend that isn’t intimidating to try.  Choosing simple, easy to wear pieces are the key to trying new trends.  A pleated skirt is a great way to wear velvet without feeling outdated.  A pair of velvet boots instantly upgrades a pair of jeans.  If you’re really feeling bold try a velvet pant suit in a rich Fall color such as burgundy for a sleek look.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Hump Day all!

From time to time I like to get suggestions on what my fabulous readers would like to see in the coming months on the blog.  Your input helps me to develop content that matters to you.

I look forward to your feedback!

Have a wonderful day!

P.S.  I’m selling a few items on Poshmark so check out my closet here!

Happy Monday all!

Fall is usually characterized by dark, rich colors but that doesn’t mean you cant still inject fun prints into your wardrobe.  Bold, colorful pieces don’t have to be worn only during the Spring and Summer.  While they may be considered “off season”, you can still wear them all year around.  Wearing an “off season” item can interject some new life into your wardrobe and also extend item wear.  Also no one checking to see if you’re  wearing an “off season” item or not.  The fashion police aren’t going to bust down your door for wearing a Summer dress in the Fall or Winter.  Style is completely subjective and personal to everyone.  The dress in this post doesn’t scream “Fall!” but so what? I wanted to wear and that is all I needed to put it on.

So if you still want to rock your favorite Summer skirt this Fall, I promise I won’t rat you out to the fashion police!

Have a wonderful day!
