Ok Gwynnie Bee, I See You Girl!


Hey Fashionista!

I am having the time of my fashion life checking out these monthly subscription boxes for my new wardrobe. This week is ALL about Gwynnie Bee!

Read below about how I fell in love with this dress and their amazing service. ;)



In my quest to build my RajdulariStyle brand, I was lamenting to my sistagirls about how I really wanted to keep enhancing my wardrobe and experimenting with different styles.

Thankfully, one of my dear friends (and incredible stylist) Steffany Allen told me about Gwynnie Bee (thank you Steffy!).

I quickly hopped on their site, added a few pieces to my 'closet' to start with, and was so happy that this beautiful Leota 'Charlotte' Prism dress arrived just in time for my Jamaica trip!

This dress hugs the curves in ALL the right places, and I loved the bright blue, white and pink colors! You can NEVER go wrong with a great jersey dress. Especially this one with it's slimming twist-knot detail in the front, and the way it flatters the hips.

I can see me rocking this dress for a long time. Miss Gwynnie, I see you girl. LOH-VING this as my first piece! Can't wait to see what arrives next month! Best part about this service, as opposed to others? You can actually view their offerings in advance and choose some of your favorite pieces to hang in your closet until it's time to ship. You keep the look as long as you want (instead of only having 5 days to decide like other services), and once you send it back? They send you whatever item is next in your 'closet' queue. I loved being able to choose what I want, instead of waiting to be surprised every month.

So far, this subscription service idea is working out great, and I'm having fun playing in clothes and fashion.  I can't wait to see what comes up next!

Get details for this look, (and my accessories) below.

See you next week, Fashionistas!

I'm crushing on these City Chic coated jeans!

Hi there Fashionista!

I'm still sending you love from sunny Jamaica, where we'll be until this coming Sunday. I have had the most amazing time here at The Grand Palladium with my love and our friends and family!

We shot this CityChic look on the balcony of our suite, in the blazing hot Jamaica sun. But, the funny thing is? These 'coated' jeans are stretchy, airy, and cooler in temperature than they look. I felt really comfortable rocking them in this heat! 

What I love the most about rocking jeans like this in the summer, is that you can dress them up with heels and a top, like I've done here, or you can wear a casual tank with comfy shoes and have the jeans themselves dress up the rest of the look!

Get all the details on the outfit below, and I'll see you next week for more fashions from Jamaica. Can't I just stay here forever? Jamaica, I'm so in love with you!

Have a great weekend, Fashionistas!

P.S. Oh and can a sista get an amen for the shoes? They are my new obsession, these clear lucite band heels are from a company called 'Team Wardrobe'. They make heels that are high but super comfortable. I will find a million ways to wear them, starting with this look. ;)

Hot Curves in Jamaica!

aka 'How I Styled my #StitchFix Bermuda Shorts'!


Whew chile, we've only been here three full days, and I'm having the time of my life in #Jamaica!

Happy Wednesday Fashionista,

I'm super excited, I've been waiting to tell you all about my experience with StitchFix, a monthly shopping service I decided to try out for RajdulariStyle!

I'll be doing a series of shoots around all of the pieces I got from there (loved almost EVERYTHING they sent), so stay tuned throughout my Jamaica trip to see more looks!

That said, first piece up are these super comfy Bermuda shorts. I usually have a hard time wearing Bermuda shorts because of where they hit my thighs. 

But these pair were perfect, and I was excited to get something in the mail that fit me the FIRST time I put them on!

Great job, Stitch Fix! Can't wait to see what I get in next month's delivery!

Ok, I'm off to chase more sunshine, Fashionistas. Catch you next time! (See outfit deets & more pics below).

Love,

R

The Perfect #CurvyGirl Skirt you'll LOVE!

Chile, lemme tell you 'bout how I almost got rid of this skirt!

Ok so, I fell in love with this Jibri Lego Skirt (buy a similar one here) back in 2013, and wore it on stage at a concert in Boston (scroll down to see that pic ;)).

At the time, I didn't really like how it fit me. It was a bit too tight around the belly and waist area, so I wore it once, threw it in the closet, and there it stayed four the past 4 years.

Since then, I've gone on a health journey over the past year. I've lost 50+ pounds, and I've been feeling so much better these days!

So, this past weekend, The Dude and I headed up to our rooftop to shoot some looks and I pulled this skirt out (intending to sell it) and tried it on. 

Well, listen hunney! That beauty fit so well, I promptly did the shoot, twirled, and put that bad boy RIGHT back in the closet!

Has this ever happened to you? I challenge you to grab some of those oldie but goodies out of the back of your closet and try them on, girl!

This high waist skirt isn't on sale from Jibri anymore, but you can get one like it here. If you do, drop me a line in the comments and let me know!

Until next time, yours in Style...

Flirty Florals!

Hello Fashionistas!

Ok, I'll admit it: I'm not a huge 'trend' follower, simply because most of the trends I see in fashion these days aren't new to me. Crop tops? Been wearing them since the 80s, right? And what about the new 'chunky heels'. Those were all the rage with platform shoes in the 60s & 70s. Cut out jeans? You mean the ones we wore in the 90s with our tank tops and Janet Jackson earrings? 

You know what I'm talkin' about ;).

Fashion is cyclical. Which is why I always think it's best to wear whatever moves YOU, anytime and anywhere. Having your own personal sense of style is what makes you unique, and awesome!

BUT, when I saw pretty floral patterns making their way back in season, with all of their feminine ruffles and pretty lace details? Ok, THEN you had me excited. ;)

I love any and all pretty, girly things, so when I saw this chiffon dress at Maurices, I just had to buy it. And this dress didn't disappoint! It's comfortable (worn with NO spanx, thank you Jesus), the ruffles are feminine, and I love the lightness of the fabric and the open-back detail on the shoulders.

In short, THIS floral trend has me hooked, and I can't wait to add even more of this style to my closet for this Spring and Summer!

Details on the look below. As always, thanks for checking out my CurvyStyle blog where I post new looks every Wednesday. 

Sending you much love, Fashionistas! What did you think of this dress? Would YOU buy it? How would you style it? Sound off in the comments below!

Love, R

Ahoy! Sailor Red Skirt

Who doesn't love a nautical/sailor skirt for a fun day on the waterfront? I LOVE this Liz Claiborne skirt, and for years I couldn't fit it, so it just hung in my closet. 

After losing 50+ pounds, I snatched this beauty off the hanger and was so happy to see that it fit like a glove!

I had so much fun shooting this look w/@RLxPress. Don't you just love easy breezy outfits that hug the curves and make you feel feminine and fun? Get details on the look below, and getchu a flirty skirt too, Fashionista! <3 

Now, if I could just find me a yacht to lounge around in my cute look, chile. Then we'd be in business! ;)

Lane Bryant: Swirl Circle Skirt + Soul n Substance Earrings

Hey Fashionista!

Lemme tell you 'bout how much I am in LOVE with this skirt I got from Lane Bryant, AND these earrings from Soul & Substance that I'm currently crushing on! :)

As a curvy girl who carries a lot of her weight on my bottom half, finding the right skirt that accentuates my waist, while still tastefully covering my behind is always a challenge. Do you have that issue, Fashionistas? Being a curvy girl can be hard, but I'm grateful that fashion has come such a LONG way for us. ;)

Also, I'm totally crushing on these beautiful larger-than-life Africa+Cowrie Shell earrings I got from Soul & Substance. The owner of S&S, Quianna Taylor, (who's motto is: 'Soul is who you are, substance is what you bring to the table') and I have been Instagram friends for quite a while now. So, the moment I started this blog, I KNEW that I had to have a few of her wearable art pieces for my jewelry collection!

If you've been looking for an edgy look for Spring, why not throw on a bold patterned skirt, and grab some wearable art to spice up your jewelry collection. Give these pieces a try, I promise you'll love them as much as I do!

Get the details on this look below. ;)

Happy Shopping, Fashionistas!

Strawberries & Cream!

Can I just tell you how much I LOVE the color pink? I bought this skirt years ago in London from Dorothy Parker (get similar here). I love its pleated style, the flirty feel of it, and it's such a comfortable look that you can wear out day & night! Also, I love my light pink & floral heels from ModCloth to top off the look!

The other day, I wanted to do a shoot for the launch of my new website. RLxPress and I headed over to Washington Park here in Denver and I had so much fun celebrating Spring in the park w/my love!

The Dude called this 'Strawberries & Cream', and I loved the title! Get the details below.

What about you, Fashionistas? What is your go-to skirt that you throw on when you're feeling flirty and feminine? Sound off in the comments below!

StyleCrush: Brooklyn Petite!

Sooooo, as a fledgling fashion blogger, I've been crushing on Brooklyn Petite's Instagram page for a while now. And when she posted this overalls look, I gasped.

I've always LOVED overalls, and the idea of pairing them with heels and a dope jacket just looked so awesome! I wondered whether I'd be able to do this look justice, so I grabbed @Mimagmono, put the look together, and we headed out in Denver to do this tribute shoot!

Brooklyn Petite, I hope you like my tribute! I think your fashion look is super dope, and am truly a fan, lady!
