Hi beautiful people!

When creating or changing your wardrobe, make sure you to get garments that you really like and that reflects your personality. I will be sharing outfit ideas that I created to hopefully give ideas about how to create unique, stylish garments. I found several pieces but will be showing how to mix and match.

This first outfit can possibly be worn for date or special event. It’s very simple yet elegant.  The great thing is that this look is great on different body types. What do you think?

What’s up everyone?   Today is one of those where I have been lounging around getting some much needed rest.   I finally got out and and wanted to dress a little  jazzy today.  I don’t know what it is but I love dressing up for fall.  My outfit is very simple  adding tights and booties (or boots) will dress up your look instantly.  I got my dress from Ross for about $6 and my cardigan is $5 (can’t remember where I got it:?). My booties are from Cato for about $12.

Casual Chic: Dressing Up for Fall

Hi beautiful people!

Cardigans are one of the easiest ways to transition to fall. The outfit that I am wearing is simple, comfortable, and cute. I love wearing bold, bright colors as well deep, rich color. I like to mix my colors.
Tip: Scarves and Cardigans transform a summer outfit easily.

I find that some women are scared to try mixing colors or wearing prints. Fashion is trial and error sometimes, but don’t be afraid to try things out.

Closet Chic: Swimwear For Women With Curves

Closet Chic, Inspiration

Hey, everyone!  I realize that summertime will be coming to an end in a matter of weeks.  So, that means two things.  1) Sales on summer clothes and 2) Enjoying summertime activities.  So, I have been on a quest to find swimwear for myself.  I have been looking for swimwear that is figure flattering and sexy.  I have doing a lot of searching for swimwear for women with curves, and to my surprise there are some great online store that sale fabulously designed swimwear for women with fuller, curvier physiques.  It is not too late to get your sexy on for the beach, pool parties, and other summertime festivities.   So, this post is for the ladies who have been on the fence about stepping and embracing your curves.  You may want to lose weight or don’t feel that you will look sexy.    I have been trying to find the perfect two piece high-waist swimsuit and I think I have found a few places to look.  High-waist swimsuit are big this summer.  This a great alternative to the two-piece bikini.  You have more coverage on your belly area.   You can be modest yet sexy! I have done some research for you;-)

So, let’s get started with Swimsuits for All. At the beginning of this summer, I purchase a really cute one piece swimsuit from this company.  Their sizes range from 8 to 34.  The swimwear on this site has so much variety and this company sales swimwear exclusively.  You can go conservative to super sexy.  If you sign up for their e-mail listing (which is free)  you will be sent promotions and discounts.  I purchased my swimsuit at an already discounted price $29.98 (originally $89) and with the additional promotion (free shipping included) $19.49.  I created a collage of a few pieces from this site.

This is the swimsuit that I purchased.

I  accidentally discovered Rue 107 New York over the weekend.   I absolutely love the bold, edgy, feminine clothing from this store. The sizes range from X-Small to 3X.   In addition to a variety clothing options and accessories, this store has swimwear.  The prices of the swimwear range from $20-100.  The two-piece swim suits are sold separately which I think is cool if you want to mix and match.

The last store I want to share is Unique Vintage.  The name says it all.  This store sales retro and vintage style pieces for various occasions.  The swimwear is gorgeous especially if you want to channel  the 1950’s, Marilyn Monroe-ish style.  I am contemplating on getting the red with white polka dot set (pictured below, $68).  The sizes for the swimwear go up to a size 18.

I hope this was helpful.  This a great time to catch really great sales on swimwear before the summer is gone.  Enjoy this summer and enjoy your curves;-)
