Pinterest Inspiration

Happy Monday all!

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I’m completely addicted to  Pinterest. I can stay on Pinterest all day  especially the women’s fashion board. It was there I stumbled on this pin which inspired my post today.  Her chic ensemble got me thinking of ways I could incorporate white my Fall wardrobe. I came up with three easy ways to add white and get further use of items already in my closet.

How are you incorporating white into you Fall wardrobe?

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: A Kick In The Pants

TGIF all!

” Love your enthusiasm and style! Please do more casual and pants outfits!”

I gotta admit, this comment struck a cord with me because it’s so true!  I had to admit that 95% of my outfit posts feature skirts and are work related.  I’ve allowed my love of all things skirts to forsake other items in my closet.  While my job is a portion of my life, my posts don’t reflect this. Trust me, work isn’t the only thing I’ve got going on in my life! So from now  on my Casual Friday posts will  be a mix of business causal AND casual outfits.  I’m committed to doing this  because I take my readers comments seriously.  I’ve even  created a Pinterest board dedicated to pant outfits for inspiration!  So please don’t hesitate to let me know what you like to see on the blog and if I can make it happen, I will!

Have a wonderful weekend!

30 Plus Style: The $30 Challenge, Mad For Plaid

Happy Tuesday all!

We’re back! 30 Plus Style latest collaboration is taking on one of Fall’s staples…plaid.  Plaid is one of those prints that can be very polarizing…either you love it or hate it.  Personally I like plaid, especially plaid shirts. So I was cool with styling a plaid outfit but when I saw that  it had to be $30 or less I was like “oy vey!” Luckily I’ve been blessed with gifted items that helped me with this challenge.  To make sure my outfit was less than $30, the jacket I’m wearing in this post was originally priced at $110 but I only paid$23 for it!  Now that’s what I call a bargain!

Please check out the lovely ladies of 30 Plus Style and French guest blogger Gaelle from The Curvy and Curly Closet to see how they became “Mad For Plaid”!

Casual Friday: Fabulous Faux Pt 2

TGIF all!

In my second installment of Fabulous Faux, I combined my faux leather midi with this fun sweatshirt. I love the statement sweatshirt trend so I searched around until I found this one at H&M.  I had to have it to pay homage to my hometown of New York.  I was born and raised in the Bronx and proud to be a native New Yorker (or New Yawker! LOL)  After I graduated from Binghamton University, I left for graduate school here in Philadelphia to never return back to New York.  Although I’m pretty much a Philadelphian now, New York will always have a special place in my heart!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fabulous Faux…Pt. 1

Happy Hump Day all!

Now that Fall is here, I can finally break out my faux leather pieces without sweating to death! Back in the day I wouldn’t be caught DEAD wearing faux leather (don’t you think faux sounds better than saying fake leather? LOL) The days of cheap, stiff items have been replaced with soft, matte materials that move with your body. This faux leather skirt from Eloquii is a prime example of that.  The rich color, great fit and conscious construction has made this skirt one of the best faux leather pieces I own!

What are some of your favorite faux leather pieces?

Have a wonderful day!

P.S. I seem to be having a serious love affair with burgundy (aka Sangria) and green!

Fall Favorites

Happy Monday all!

According to my local meteorologist, Fall will arrive at 10:29pm tonight. While I am sad to see Summer go, Fall is one of my favorite seasons. And with the new season  means new  fashions! Woo hoo! Below are  my favorite Fall  pieces that I would love to add to my wardrobe. The Zara red satchel would be an awesome addition to my closet because it’s the perfect way to add a pop of color to my Fall outfits. If and when I get it, it’s gonna be in heavy rotation!  Speaking of heavy rotation, if I had this leopard print coat from BB Dakota I would probably wear it to bed! It’s such a  stylish way to combat the chilly temps as Fall transitions into Winter.  Keeping with my love of prints, I’m loving the J Crew vibe these Lands’ End pants are giving me!  I’m so happy that they didn’t exclude  this print for plus size like some other brands do. Good job Lands End good job!  Speaking of prints, nothing says Fall like plaid. By combining plaid and leather, Eloquii has breathed life in a long standing Fall staple.  And nothing beats a sleek and stylish suede  pump!  I love how Ivanka Trump  continues to provide low heel pumps that don’t attack you feet and has that “yasss” factor.

What are some of your Fall favorites?

Have a wonderful day!

Casual Friday: Everyone Needs One!

TGIF all!

I have a confession to make, prior to this post I  didn’t down a black suit! I know, I know…Im such a bad blogger! (LOL)  A black suit it probably one of the most important items to have in your closet. It literally goes with everything which makes it your go to, especially during the work week. A black suit will  never go out of style and it looks good on EVERYBODY. So when IGIGI asked me to review their Tabitha blazer and Melissa pant I took that as a sign that I needed a black suit ASAP!

The Tabitha blazer is cut large so  you will have to size down. I initially got an 18 and it was huge!  I exchanged it for the 16 and it fit much better. The Melissa pant is true to size and has a nice amount of stretch which makes them very comfortable to wear. I like that  while the pants stretch, they don’t lose their shape which lessens sagging in the seat area.  So if you’re in the market for a quality black suit, I would highly recommend  IGIGI!

Have a wonderful weekend!
