Nowadays crop tops are NOT just for the skinny. Curvy to plus size women everywhere have gravitated towards this 60's era look. However, mastering the crop top trend at work can be viewed as an impossible challenge. Making the trend work at work is not nearly as indecent as it may seem. In today's look, I've paired it with my high-waisted double layer skirt, automatically creating that cropped silhouette without risking the inappropriate midriff exposure. If you don't own such a skirt, a fitted basic dress or a pencil skirt (with a camisole) would work just as well. Also, I suggest steering away from form fitting, lycra like tops at work. Opt for loose-fitting, over sized or boxy shapes.

Unless you've been living under a rock since Fall 2013, PVC high shine skirts are all the rage. Typically, one would link PVC to terms like dominatrix, S&M, sex shops and the like. Leave it to fashion gods to rework what was once a naughty connotation to fashion forward status. Coincidentally, my first time seeing a non-black version was on Kim Kardashian during her neutral color phase few months back.
If you're like me, you're tired of always waiting for the plus size fashion world to catch up with current trends. Remember last Spring's coveted asymmetric skirt? It wasn't until late Fall did we begin to see plus size versions. It's quite appalling if you ask me. With that being said, I decided to list a few places currently where you can purchase online. Unfortunately, if you're over a size US 11/12 they may not fit. This is why I've also included some online FETISH retailers where you can purchase plus size versions as well as etsy shops where you can have one custom made for you. Unfortunately, for now, plus size options are only ublack and red. It truly is the only option until the plus size fashion world gets with the program.

Whether on my lips, body or on my feet; red always gives me a certain confidence boost I can’t quite explain. Even when dressed down, it somehow makes me smile a little more, walk a bit taller, you name it. I am sure all you ladies know what I mean and if you don't, start off with a red lip and get back to me.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you would have known that I underwent intensive surgery recently. It was the last chapter (I pray) of a over year long battle for which I can now officially say I AM CANCER FREE! With that being said, thank you all for the encouraging words and thoughts. Post surgery, I wasn't feeling like myself but my with my fiance's help, I was able to reclaim my essence and once again become the Queen, that had become dormant. Below is my first day out and about in all my monochromatic glory.
As a blogger, I get tons of fashion related emails with style questions like-how to style circle skirts, how to wear a tie yet still look feminine, how to rock a sweatshirt, etc. One of the most reoccurring questions I get asked is wardrobe must haves. This post will run entirely too long to state them all, so instead I'll begin with the most basic wardrobe necessity of them all-a little black dress, more specifically, a tank dress.
Now I know what you're thinking, it's winter why a tank and not a long sleeve dress or turtleneck? A tank dress is probably the most transitional garment a woman can own. It can be worn year round, it can be layered, dressed up or down, both work appropriate and nighttime sassy. Below I've drafted some outfits to inspire. *The main dress is from OSP and for some other options, I checked Nordstroms, Aldo, Michael Kors amongst others.
As I revealed here, I've been on a journey with pink. Being such an innocent color, I had to transform it a bit with the help of fishnet tights and heavy metal studded stilettos. How amazing are these heels by the way?!
Funny enough, I didn't begin to gravitate towards the color pink until I became an adult. Nowadays, I love all things girly and feminine so much so that blush is my wedding gown inspiration. In any event, below is my fashion ode to my current favorite color, Pink.
