Cold Shoulder



I plan on enjoying this gorgeous Fall weather before the craziness that is Winter comes along. As you may know if you saw one of my previous posts here, you may already know that I love statement necklines and Boohoo has been giving me my fix lately. I have been finding the most amazing statement pieces from them recently and i just love that they do not shy away from designing edgy pieces for their plus line.

When I got this bodysuit, I imagined that I would always wear it with a full midi skirt just like I love to wear my bodysuits but once i tried it on, it just screamed sexy and a midi skirt seemed too tame. I also recently saw the new line Good American co-founded by Khloe Kardashian and I just absolutely loved the ankle skinnies! Though I am not a believer in spending that much for jeans, I have to admit I was tempted. So I went into my closet and dug through my collection ankle skinnies, and I must say that this pair right here is one of my favorites of all time. It is the stiletto skinny by Torrid, and while it has been around for a bit, I think this is a classic skinny jean, I love that it is cropped, I love the slim fit, and it has really incredible stretch, plus the extra zipper detail on the ankles just give an added bonus.

Grunge Chic


Hey there! 
So confession, I have a thing for oversized sweaters and sweater dresses. I just really like the dual nature of them being that you can keep it casual or glam it up like I did here with heels. I got this sweater dress for an unbelievable deal and oh boy, how I wish they had it in different colors, cos I would have walked out of there with an arm full. 

Being a large footed gal, finding feminine, trendy heels can be a hassle and frankly, very frustrating sometimes even to the point of tears. I remember crying over heels when I was a teenager because I couldn't wear beautiful heels because of my then size 13 feet. But thank God, those days are long gone and we now have some designers looking out for the large footed gal. A new brand caught my eye on IG recently by the name of Lonia Shoes, they carry up to a size 15! And while I was a bit skeptical about their sizing, I decided to give them a try and ordered these strappy beauties. They also come in a gorgeous pink metallic that I am itching to get, but I shall resist. As for the sizing, I got my usual size which is a 12 and I have absolutely no complaints. The straps were wide enough for my large ankles and didn't look like they were cutting off my circulation. If you are a large footed gal, you should definitely check them out, they have these clear boots that I am waiting on, and I have my alarm set for the release date lol.

Camouflage & Choker neckline

Hello world! I feel like it's been forever since I've updated this space. My apologies, I have been a bit busy juggling two jobs. Since I haven't had time to visit my fave stores, I have discovered the holy grail of online shopping. Don't get me wrong, I have always shopped online but I usually like to try on my items before I buy. But now girl please, I love the vast selection online and thank God for free returns.
One of my go to stores lately has been Boohoo and one reason is because they stay having sales. I honestly have never had to buy anything full price from them. I would have, but they always have a promotion going on. Another reason of course, they have trendy items that I do not have to break the bank for. 
One of my recent purchases is a trend that I am in love with right now, it's the choker neckline trend. I have always loved chokers so if they come in clothing form, count me in! I paired this casual sweater with liquid leggings which are a must in my fall/winter closet. Knee high heels and a camo jacket finished off this look for me.

Fall Trends: Leather Mini & Utility Vest




Utility jackets/vests have officially made a comeback. Yes, they have been lurking in the closets of the fashionable for some years now but they have officially come out of hiding and are literally in everyone's closet this Fall. Be it oversized camouflage jackets or sleeveless longline vests like this one I'm wearing.
This sleeveless utility jacket has a cascade look to it that just melted my heart since I have a soft spot for cascade jackets. And since I am all about multitasking my closet, I also love the fact that I can style this vest in lots of different ways. For this look, I went with a glimpse of sexy by showing off my shoulders with an off shoulder top and my legs with a leather mini. And I polished off the sexy look with this peep toe bootie.
