Smart Layers

Happy Monday all!

During the Winter  I’m always trying to finds ways to layer  without turning into the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.   A couple of Summers ago I layered a dress over a pair of jeans as apart of a style challenge so I thought I give it a whirl again.  After going through my closet, I picked an old striped dress that I had stopped wearing it because it comes above my knees.  While the  length of the dress didn’t work for me bare legged, it was perfect for layering over a turtleneck and straight leg pants.    Once I put everything on, I didn’t feel bulky or constricted.  This layering trick will   keep you warm and stylish during the frigid months.  It’s also a great way to incorporate your favorite Spring dresses into your Winter wardrobe.

What are some of your layering tricks during the Winter?

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: ModaMix!

TGIF all!

With plus size fashion booming, more and more brands are vying for our attention. ModaMix is one of the newer brands to enter into the to the plus size fashion pool.   I was first introduced to ModaMix by Sandra from La Pecosa Preciosa and Darlene from Suits,  Heels & Curves during Full Figure Fashion Week. They invited me to an event ModaMix was having to showcase their latest collection. I remember being instantly impressed the with their collection which is available at Macy’s, Hey Gorgeous and Lord & Taylor.

I was also drawn to their description of the “ModaMix Woman”. They describe her ” as “confident, trend setting and wants to take pride in her wardrobe. The brand is catered to ages 25 and beyond and is ageless. She wants to look good and feel good. Modamix allows her to show off her curves by concentrating on quality fabrics and a perfected fit.”   This statement resonated with me because  plus size women  want contemporary clothing that fits all aspects of our lives, no just work.  I especially like that their collection has something for everybody, regardless of age.   As y’all already know I am a huge advocate for age inclusion, so it really makes me happy to see a brand embrace PS women of all ages.

More Sequins Please

Happy Monday all!

When Bianca from Curvaceously Bee , Jeniese from The Jenesaisquoi and Pepper from Pretty Plus Pep asked me to be apart of their NYE sequin collaboration I was like “YES!”  A few years ago you  couldn’t find any fashionable plus size sequin items but now there are tons of them!   NYE is prime time to wear sequins and I am totally embracing it. For the collaboration I decided to go sequin on sequin by pairing this H&M sweater with my old Target pencil skirt for a fun casual look.  This H&M sweater is great for first time sequin wearers because the design isn’t overwhelming or loud.  Not only is the sweater cute, it actually keeps you warm!  While this sweater is currently sold out, try pairing another sequin embellished sweater with a tulle skirt for another great NYE look!

Please check out Bianca , Pepper  and Jeniese to see  how they styled their NYE sequin looks!

Have a wonderful day!
