Color Story: Gray

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my gray work look I accurately tagged "Monochromatic Monday." Besides camel, discussed here, gray and olive green are fall colors I've been gravitating towards. Instead of doing a closet overhaul, I strategically chose pieces that can be easily added to my current wardrobe-a technique that is both wallet friendly and stops you from becoming overly trendy. Nowadays, I'm more about spending more on classic items and less on trendy ones.  Below is a mix of the two.

Carmakoma Spring 2015 Preview

Few weeks ago, during New York Fashion Week, I was invited to attend Carmakoma's Spring/Summer 2015 fashion preview event. Not familiar with the brand? No worries, you will soon. They're a Denmark based fashion brand that provides higher quality pieces to us curvy to plus size women. You can also shop for their pieces at ASOS. The event was hosted by none other than plus size model extradonaire, Fluvia Lacerda (who's beyond gorgeous btw).

Carmakoma's spring line targets just about every genre of woman out there. For you career types, there's a plethora of well fitted pants suits, for the fashion forward woman, there's leather pieces intertwined with zipper detailing and varied hemlines.  They even have body-con dresses and slinky tops and skirts reminiscent of past eras. Not to mention, their use of prints, textile, and denim makes it really difficult to wait until next season to purchase. Below are some of my favorite looks from their look-book, along with candid shots from the event.

You can shop their current season here but definitely stay tuned for this epic spring line in early 2015! I will keep you guys updated.

FALL Color Obsession: Camel

Lately, I've been perusing the web in search of cozy layering pieces and accessories to add to my current fall wardrobe.  My searches led me to coats, jackets, vests, and hats.  Accessories is a great way to add versatility to your closet pieces without breaking the bank and becoming super duper trendy (a no-no if you ask me). Aside from camel, my color obsession continues with my love of olive green and grey.

I like my boyfriend jeans how I like my men-broken in, relaxed and ripped!  A little bit of stretch doesn't hurt either, might I add.  Look familiar? You might recall these jeans from the denim lookbook I shot with FTF.

In today's fashion spin, I went for a feminine touch to an otherwise laid-back casual look by opting for my block heel sandals and cognac colored tote bag (which I'm head over heels for btw).

End of Days

All over, people are posting about the end of summer and so on. I don't know about you all, but here in NYC, summer is far from over. This week's forecast-high 90's!! As much as I look forward to fall, the changing of the leaves, crisp air and so on; I am taking in all the sun I can during these end of days.

Below is a quick date night 'fit I wore this weekend celebrating our pre-1 month of marriage.  Happy Anniversary babes!!!!

I can't stress enough just how much of a closet staple, a white button-down should be.  It acts as the perfect canvas for a myriad of chic looks.  Lately, I've been investing in higher quality versions and came across Ann Taylor's stretch perfect button downs and let me tell you, "perfect" hits it on the head. For a busty plus size woman like myself, gaping is inevitable when it comes to these type of tops but, AT's gives me the smallest to nonexistent gap. They also go up to a size 18. I am a believer!!

From office to weekend casual, the possibilities are endless with a great quality white button down. Today, I'm wearing an embellished version which I fell head over heels for.  It possess the right blend of professional tailoring with feminine detailing without the need of accessorizing. It's already done for you! Not to mention, it's a sturdy thick fabric that helps to not give off that peek-a-boo see-through look many of us know far too well.
