Getting Ready With Dia & Co!

Happy Monday all!

When I was contacted Dia & Co. a little over a week ago I was intrigued by their service.  Dia & Co. is a personal styling service for plus size women.  Dia & Co. mission is to “to empower women of every unique size and shape to look and feel amazing. At our core, we truly believe that looking good can transform how we feel about ourselves; and when we gain more confidence and conviction, we can accomplish great things.”

Dia & Co is not a generic subscription service. They use the information that you provide in your style profile to curate a box reflects your style and budget.  You pick the price range of clothing you want to receive from Dia & Co.  So if you only want shirts that are $40 and under, that is what you’ll receive.  Dia & Co.  will not send you any items above the price range you’ve selected.  Once you finish your profile, your Dia & Co. stylist will call you finalize the details of your box.  After speaking with your stylist, they will put together a box for you and send it via priority mail.  There is a $20 styling fee that is applied by Dia & Co.  That $20 fee is credited to the items you decide to keep and buy in your box.  If you decide you dont want any of the items, simply return them in the prepaid mailer included in your box within 5 days. What I like about Dia & Co is that you can use them whenever you choose. So if you want to use them once a week or once a year, you can.

I can honestly say after going through the Dia & Co process, I was extremely impressed with my box.  I received a orange ASOS Midi Wiggle dress (I squealed when I unpacked it because I was stalking it on ASOS website!),  American Rag sleeveless printed dress, a Jones NY chevron print tank, a black ASOS skater skirt and gold earrings. I love how the ASOS dress hugs my curves perfectly.   The American Rag dress is perfect for my upcoming trip to the Bahamas. The chevron tank and skirt have become my favorite go to items for work. Dia & Co definitely lived up to their mission by providing me with clothing that makes me feel amazing. I highly recommend you go and check out Dia & Co...NOW!

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Pre Fall Faves!

TGIF all!

I can’t believe Fall is almost here! It seems like we wait FOREVER for Spring & Summer and then it zips by.  Although I’m sad to see Summer go, Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I always look forward to adding a few pieces to my wardrobe to ease the seasonal transition.  Below are  a few items that are on my list for Fall.  I always look for versatile pieces to mix and match with items that are already in my closet.

Polka Dot Trench from Modcloth:  Looking to replace your old trench coat this Fall? Look no further!  Pair this trench with a striped shirt and jeans to rock mixed prints and elevate your casual look.

Faux leather pleated midi skirt from Charlotte Russe: What more can I say?!  This skirt looks good on EVERY body type! Plus it’s less than $30!!!

Denim culottes from Eloquii: These definitely up your jean game a notch! Dress them up with a blouse and heels for a chic but comfy date night outfit.

Tassle earrings from Bauble Bar: These are an easy way to ease into a statement earring without going crazy. They also come in a variety of Fall colors!

Sign Me Up Gladiator flats from Nine West: This seasons hottest shoe is something EVERYONE can wear.  The rich burgundy color screams Fall and goes with a variety of colors and prints. P.S. these go up to size 11.

Carryall Tote from Gap: A tote that goes with everything is must in any closet. This bag from Gap completely fits the bill.  It’s roomy enough to go from work, school and everything in between.

Tie Neck Blouse from Forever 21: This blouse is a nod to the 70’s trend that is hot for Fall. Pair it with your faux leather pleated skirt (hint, hint!), black blazer and a pair of leopard print heels for a cool work outfit.

Women’s Plus Mid Rise Stovepipe Pants from Old Navy: OR you could wear the blouse with these CUTE leopard print pants and a pair of black loafers for a cute Casual Friday outfit!

Which of these items would you buy for the Fall?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pinterest Faves: Style Pantry

Happy Monday all!

I’m excited to feature one of my style crushes Folake of Style Pantry. I admire her ability to mix high and low end pieces effortlessly without coming off as pretentious.  Folake wears bold colors and prints in a way that says “hey I can wear that too!”.  That’s why I chose this particular pin to highlight. Who doesn’t like a bold print skirt paired with a simple button up shirt?

I’m so happy that you ladies (and some gents!) like my Pinterest Faves!  I’m thinking about making it permanent feature.  What do you think about this?

Have a wonderful day!

Lane Bryant Fall Sneak Peek + Camo Print Midi Dress

TGIF all!

Now that Summer is winding down, retailers are slowly rolling our their Fall collections. While I hate seeing Summer go, Fall is one of my favorite seasons along with Spring.  Lane Bryant recently has started putting out their Fall collection and I’m very impressed with their new offerings.  Their new collection offers different cuts of denim, revamped work wear items and more on trend prints without compromising their core base.

This camo midi dress I’m wearing is apart of Lane Bryant’s new Fall collection and I absolutely love it. I can always count on Lane Bryant to provide me with quality and this dress doesn’t disappoint. If you’re looking to amp up your Fall wardrobe this year, I highly recommend this dress.

Have a wonderful weekend!

First Annual TCF Style Expo!

Happy Monday all!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the first annual TCF Style Expo in Atlanta, GA. The expo was created by Marie Denee of the hugely popular blog The Curvy Fashionista.  Her TCFStyle hashtag celebrates plus size fashion so she wanted to bring it to life with this event

  “I have long wanted to do an event that made my blog come to life- giving you an all-inclusive plus size fashion experience! I am talking shopping, sipping, learning, and having an all-day event that celebrated YOU!” -Marie Denee

When I heard about the event, I knew I wanted to be apart of it.  Luckily for me, Marie was gracious enough to allow me to participate in the event by moderating the “Empowerment Through Fashion” panel.  This was  my FIRST time moderating a panel and I was super nervous.  Luckily for me I had four wonderful women who made my job so easy!  My panel included Keke Simpson motivational speaker & wife of hip hop legend Chubb Rock), Debra Antney mother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame & VH1’s  Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Sabrina Severance from Lifetime’s  Big Women: Big Love and Yuneisia Harris from TLC’s Curvy Brides and Curvaceous Couture.  These women shared their wisdom and advice how to empower yourself through fashion with the audience.  Their message for the audience was clear and simple “Love yourself no matter what!”

Marie definitely accomplished her goal of creating an all-inclusive fashion experience for plus size women.  Plus size designers such as Lane Bryant, Cool Gal Blue and Ashley Stewart were present to help women shop til they dropped.  Magnolia Makeup was there to help attendees  bring out their inner beauty with their gorgeous pallet of colors.  Ultraviolet Nail Lounge  pampered attendees nails to give them a knock out color.   Marie also included  Curvaceous Couture (the first designer bridal boutique that caters to plus size women)  for curvy brides in attendance to look and try on wedding dresses in a positive and accepting environment.

If you couldn’t go to the event this year, don’t fret! The TCF Style Expo will be back next year so start planning now!

Have a wonderful day!
