It's My Birthday + Asos Giveaway

Today's my Birthday and I'm in great spirits.  You have no idea how much I've grown since beginning this blog. I am ever so grateful for the people I've met, the opportunities that have come my way along with the women I've been able to touch.  My motto, "Style is not just for the skinny" is NOT just a motto, but truly my belief that clothing can revive and/or develop a woman's confidence.  With that being said, it's a birthday for me but a giveaway for you.  Here's your chance to win a gift certificate to one of my favorite online retailers, ASOS.  See pic below for instructions and rules.

Best of luck!!

Spring is officially here!
Well, at least for the moment. I actually was able to step outside the house sans coat, or jacket but just with a lightweight blazer. I took full advantage of this epic day by wearing my new H&M score, this hot pink pleated mini for just $14.95! Now, I am a woman of a certain age, 30's, so it did cross my mind that perhaps this skirt was too short. This fact came to fruition when a slight gust of wind past by me and I literally had to cross my legs, pin both arms onto the side of my skirt not to mention, have my hubby stand behind me.  So bare that in mind ladies.

Neutral Overload

Although pastels are a huge trend this spring, you really can't go wrong with nude.  Below, I mixed different shades of nude for a monochromatic look.

Spring Challenge w/ PopUpPlus

When it comes to my work attire, I forgo the traditional career-wear for more eclectic pieces. Like I've mention time and time before; I like my wardrobe to be comprised of versatile pieces that move from season to season and day to evening.  With that being said, when Pop Up Plus contacted me to partake in a fashion spring challenge in creating a look with their Print and Faux leather panel Joggers, I just had to make it work for work.

It might be spring, but the weather here it not entirely warm, therefore I added a crisp white blazer to my navy polka dot button down and sealed it with my lace-up booties. 

These Joggers also come in red and black if that's more your shade. I must say, I enjoyed seeing how so many ladies styled theirs. Check them out here.

Spring Fashions- What I'm loving!

Although it's April, officially marking spring, it doesn't necessarily feel like it here in NYC. With that being said, my refusal of continuing to wear my winter coat, gravitation towards bare legs and day dreaming of sunny days ahead opted me to compile a list of my current favorite versatile spring must haves to bring hella cute realness to your current wardrobe and mine.

Whether you're into color or a more traditional type of woman, you're bound to find a style you love!

This year, I've incorporated more white into my wardrobe. There's nothing like a crisp white or ecru shade to bring a layer of effortless chic.  Just watch for stains!

Oddly enough, I am loving canvas sneakers nowadays. Mesh is also another love along with metal accents. Best part, shoes below are all under $55 with the exception of sandals.

Review: Isabel Toledo x Lane Bryant Capsule Line

On Thursday, I was finally able to see first hand the Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant fashion line during their spring fashion show here in NYC after weeks of promos.  I was taken away by the what I like to call, anti-plus size, styles.  Often times, designers tend to neglect the fashionable aspect of a plus size line hence creating aesthetically DISpleasing looks. Well, I can tell you (you will soon see for yourself), Isabel's line was nowhere near that. Complete with everything from perforated jackets, pvc, to lace, the Isabel Toledo line was a fashionable big girl's dream.

My favorite pieces are the cozy big lapel wrap coats, lace dresses and metallic grey skirt and top. What are yours?

Grey Clouds

Lately, I've become somewhat less enthusiastic to get dressed up. I call it my "over winter" phase. Don't get me wrong, I pride myself to ensure that I live and breathe what I preach-style not being just for the skinny.  However, layering pieces have become a chore nowadays oppose to a challenge I I looked forward to before. With that being said, styling around these awesome grey faux leather skinnies wasn't that difficult.

Chicnova has a variety of colors but I opted for grey, a color seldom seen and I lacked in my wardrobe. They are low rise but I wear mine on my natural waist therefore shortening the length on my legs (I'm 5'4).
How would you style grey leather pants?
