For Your Consideration

Happy Monday all!

The countdown to Spring is on! In honor of my FAVORITE season, I want to share with you some fun prints to consider for your Spring wardrobe.  Spring is the perfect time to experiment with wearing prints.  Add a polka dot shirt to a pencil skirt or  pair floral ankle pants with a denim shirt to welcome the new season.  These simple substitutions can extend your current wardrobe past Winter and into Spring!

What prints are you ready to try this Spring?

Have a great evening/day!

“They Say It’s Your Birthday…”

Happy Tuesday all!

Today is my 43rd birthday and I am so grateful to God for another year of life.  With each year that passes, I’ve become more content and satisfied with life.  I’m looking forward to all the wonderful things my 43rd year will bring.   Even though  I’m snowed in today (BOO!), I’m not gonna let it damper my special day!

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Happy Valentine’s Day!

TGIF all!

Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, I use the day to  acknowledge my family and friends whom I love dearly.   I didn’t always feel this way and used to spend the holiday being sad about my lack of a mate (back in college me & my gals would dress in black and eat A LOT of Ben & Jerry’s! LOL).  Over the years,  I’ve learned that just because I don’t have romantic love doesn’t mean I’m not loved.  The love of my family and friends  completes me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family and friends too! Love definitely makes the world go around!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

Have a great weekend!

Casual Friday: Count Your Stripes

TGIF all!

In Eloquii’s latest post, they asked me and other bloggers about our love of stripes. According to “fashion rules”, stripes are a no-no for plus size women because they  make us look bigger. These rules will having you believing that you’ll turn into She Hulk if you wear stripes!  I find this ridiculous and confining.   If you want to wear stripes…Do it! I love stripes and have no plans on ever giving them up! Take that She Hulk!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Cape Redux

Happy Monday all!

The last cape I wore was a white crochet number when I was about 5 years old.  As an adult I’ve admired of them afar until I stumbled upon this  Ann Taylor trench cape last month.  I immediately snatched it up because I knew it would make a great transition jacket.  I ordered the  XXL (size 18)  and it fit perfectly.  While its way too cold to wear it now, this cape will be in HEAVY rotation once Spring comes around!

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Layers of Warmth

TGIF all!

I absolutely HATE being cold so multiple layers is a must during these long Winter days.  In an effort to keep warm, I’ve turned to a Spring staple…the denim jacket. It has quickly become my go to for adding layers to an outfit.  My denim jacket goes with everything and keeps my chest warm when buttoned up under my coat.  Also wearing it constantly reminds me mild Spring weather is not that far away and I’ll be able to shed my coat for good! (FYI…Spring is 49 days away!)

What are some of your layering tricks?

Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. Eloquii was so sweet to name a midi skirt after me and I’m wearing it in this post! Yes, Georgette is wearing Georgette! :)

Union & Fifth

Happy Sunday all! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

One of my favorite bloggers Hallie Daily is co-hosting Union & Fifth’s NYFW contest. Union & Fifth is a luxury nonprofit online consignment shop that donates all their proceeds to charity.  Their list of charities include organizations such the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Year Up and Wonder Dog Rescue  . I think it’s such a great idea to combine shopping and philanthropy on one site.  This way consumers can truly shop with a purpose.

One lucky winner will receive a Chanel bag (OMG! Pictured below) AND a fantasy trip to NYFW!  I was fortunate attend  back in 2012 to see Cabiria make history as the first plus size line to be shown during NYFW.  Ever since I got a small taste of what it’s like to attend NYFW, I’ve been dying to go back. Hopefully winning this contest will be my ticket back to NYFW!

Check out & like Union & Fifth on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Have a wonderful day!
