Shape It Up

Sorry for the delay but wait no more the next post is here!

The thing about the holidays is that there are a TON of social events, which gives the opportunity for lots of outfits. The problem with me is that I keep forgetting to take pics. I had this awesome Olivia Pallermo inspired outfit on Saturday when I went ice skating (side bar, if you ever want to feel old, go ice skating!) and I totally forgot to get a good pic.

I'm constantly using Pinterest for work ideas. I mean lets face it, you can only style black slacks so many ways. I'm definitely looking for new ways to style skirts because I think it takes the right outfit to make a skirt look really classy at work, especially for the curvy ladies. I changed this one up a bit to fit my colors, my style, and items that are already in my closet, a little bit better but I think I pulled off the over all styling and shape of the outfit. You be the judge.

Dress: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's
Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft
Belt: New York and Company
Scarf: Who knows....
Tights: HUE via TJ Maxx
Boots: JC Penney

Arm Candy

I'm a freak for accessories. I probably have anywhere between 30 and 40 scarves, 25 to 30 bracelets and even more earrings and necklaces...and lets not start on the shoes and purses.

I can't pick a favorite accessory but bracelets and watches would definitely be close to the top of the list. I usually wear multiple bracelets because I love the stacked look. So here is my Pinterest arm candy.

That's me on the bottom!

Watch: Michael Kors
Assorted Bracelets: Handpicked

Cham-who? Chambray!

Can someone please tell me the difference between "Chambray" and "Denim"?? They look the same to me, but regardless the Chambray trend is everywhere. It's definitely a trend I wanted to try. I usually see it in a monochromatic scheme.

Ralph Lauren runway does it right but on me it would be "Yeah Right". I'm only for monochromatic when its all black.

I decided to go for it.

The curvy one is me!

This look was easy, comfy, and pretty cute if you ask me.

Shirt: Daddy's closet (the next time you have the opportunity, men's closets hold a lot of comfy, fashionable, and cute clothes)
Leggings: INC (Macy's)
Tank: Under Armour
Boot Socks: Target
Boots: Kohl's

I definitely would suggest trying this outfit. I don't think you can go wrong. The secret for us curvy girls is to get an oversized shirt to make it more comfy and flattering with the leggings.

Good luck!

Coming Soon: The Gift

So I am totally revamping  my blog which is extra exciting. I'm constantly looking on Pinterest for outfit ideas for work, play, and what ever else. I kind of live in the Women's Fashion category. I have been blessed with the gift of styling, basically I can take a normal outfit and make it work for different body types. With this gift I end up being everyones personal shopper. I can't lie, its a pretty fun gig.

During my exploration on Pinterest, I'm always seeing cute outfits on real people but there is one issue. They ALL have the same body type...tall, thin, modelesque. Don't get me wrong, thats all well and good but I have boobs and butt and I need those cute outfits to translate. I can do it for me and I'd like to share that with others. So part of my blog revamp will be focusing on these outfits. I'm pumped!

I've already started to put some things together already so look for new stuff this week!!!
