We are continuing our vday edition with more hearts you can wear all year with shoes. Shoes are my fave place to wear hearts as designs are always so unique, whimsical and such statement pieces! When hearts are out onto shoes there is always more concern and thought put into design and details as there isn’t much space to work on. Some of my fave shoes I own are designs from Valentine’s Day releases. Here are our picks..
I love myself some T-shirt’s and always graphic tees; but the ones made for curvier women tend to be looser fitting and boxy ( don’t get me wrong those are great for lazy weekends and lounging around) but for a night out or for more figure flattering looks a slim fit is much better! Graphic tees can be worn with anything and is a sexy way to be comfortable and show your playful side! So hope you love my selections! Enjoy and before I go here’s a Style tip: have a rocker or punk aesthetic but hate you can’t find your style in the women’s sections? Almost every men’s section has a graphic slim fit tee with some sort of “edgy” or skull graphic ( like all dudes just want to ride motorcycles or join a band) tee and they are longer and so flattering on women! I shop the men’s section a lot because of my ample bosom and tummy..and no one ever guesses its for men because of the way I style things..
Spring is finally here and with it comes the eventual flower showers; so what better way to not let all the rain get you down then to do some retail therapy?! It’s time to purchase some chic new rain wear. This week we will be covering rain gear for both women and men. There is nothing like a chic rain coat and comfy wellies to combat the dreariness of dark skies and heavy downpour. We will be starting with women’s rain wear and on Friday we will be focusing on men. We will no longer be blogging on Wednesday.
I know it gets so tiring trying to find chic raincoats with their ugly colors and unflattering silhouettes just make you want to skip going out in the rain all together. Try out trench coats that are water resistant or repellent along with wellies that look more like boots (I love doc martens awesome rain boots that look like their signature combat boots)

This Spring Boho is once again making a huge comeback! Nothing says boho quite like a good floppy hat but for 2015 why not go for a wider brim and more structured hat. It elevates the boho trend and makes everything look way more chic! Here are my picks and they are all under $30!
Hello fashionistas!! It’s now time for Fall and with it comes our guide to fall trends!! I will be breaking this down to two weeks as I will cover accessories for less and my partner will cover how to transition your style using the new fall trends!! First up are cut out heels with pointy toes! They are super sexy and can be worn with casual separates and Lug sole (or rubber sole) chunky booties. The nineties are back and these tough booties add a cool girl edge to flirty skirts and structured dresses!
For Spring floral prints were a staple on every runway so for us curvy girls try floral prints that are bolder with larger flowers for a slimming look. Not a fan of flowers try them in your accessories!!
The hottest accessory for the Summer will be sunglasses. Not only will they protect your eyes from harmful UV rays but they also are the perfect accessory for all your chic Summer outfits! So I have put together a list of the coolest shades in different styles and all will be under $13! I hope you enjoy!

Hello my curvy goddesses! Summer can be the hardest times for curvy girls when it comes to summer wear and swimwear. So I will spend the next couple of posts telling you where to get the best Summer gear for the curvy girl! My first post will be on the Maxi Dress. I looove a good maxi dress; it hugs our curves and makes short girls look longer when we wear chunky flip flops or wedges with them! So here are my picks for the best maxi dresses and don’t worry they are all budget friendly as well.
This dress by Tahari Woman is just so chic! its flattering on any curvy size!
