Lady in Red... (Eva Mendes NY & Co Collection!)

Happy Thursday, Fashionistas!

Is it just me, or does the end of the year seem to be approaching a breakneck speed these days? Between holiday shopping, end of year activities, and all of the holiday parties, I'm sure we all are feeling the crunch of the holiday season.

That said, there's no reason why you can't still celebrate in style, ladies. ;) I'm OBSESSED w/the new Eva Mendes collection at New York & Company, and I love all of the PLUS-sized offerings they've included, especially this 'Lady in Red' outfit!

Scroll down below to read ALL about this week's look.

FIRST OF ALL, can we talk about how awesome this 'Marjorie Wrap' bodysuit is? 

Normally, I'm not a bodysuit girl. Because I'm smaller on top, many bodysuits are always too large on the top and wayyyy too small on the bottom.

But not this one, hunney! The color is vibrant, the fabric flows nicely. There's a button in the v-neck (to keep the girls in check ;)) AND the bottom fits my curvy butt easily. I felt like a hot curvy chick in this outfit, lemme tell you!

Next fave- this LINED 'Tyra' pencil skirt that hugs the curves in all the right places.

I rarely (if ever) buy lined skirts. Haven't for years. It's actually a fashion 'pet peeve' of mine, because most lining in plus skirts in my size usually won't even make it past my hips. And, if they did? The skirt was usually super roomy in the waist and way too tight in the hips. (I'm sure my 'big-bottomed' curvy girls know exactly what I'm talkin about ;)).

But that's not the case with this skirt! It's lined, tapered at the waist, and has plenty of room in the hips

to make you feel sooo curvy and confident strolling into the next holiday party!


All in all, I'm really in love with these Eva Mendes pieces, and I'm so excited to see what else I can try from her collection in the future. Finding fun, vibrant, high quality clothing like this for us Plus girls always makes my fashion heart so happy :).

Happy Wednesday, Fashionistas!

Rumor has it that it's going to be a beautiful 70 degrees here in Denver on Thanksgiving.

I'm super excited about this because I've been loving the beautiful sunsets we've seen, & all of the Fall/Winter colors that are popping out in nature here too. :)

Scroll down for this week's look, featuring this ultra comfy dress by Gwynnie Bee.

I love how fun this dress is. You can either wear it with tights, or without, and it has plenty of room to keep you moving freely as you run around with family & friends!

Black Girls Rock! An Inspired Shoot...

Happy Wednesday, Fashionistas!

Recently, my sistahfriends and I all came together for a girls weekend in Denver. And, if you know anything about my girls, you know that they're all fabulous, dope women in their own right. :)

From l to r in the pic above, we have the fabulous Jasmine Myrie, violinist Monique Brooks-Roberts, myself Rajdulari, soul singer SUCH, and my sista the dopest spoken word artist, Kerrie Joy.

So, knowing they were all coming to visit Denver, Ryan and I came up with the idea to do a 'BlackGirlsRock'-inspired shoot.

We chose this theme because we wanted to highlight these phenomenal women, who are not only inspirational to me as artists and musicians, they're also some of my dearest friends.

When we asked the ladies if they were down to shoot with us, they immediately said yes, and were all excited to dress up in their fiercest look, and show us what the terms blackgirlsrock and blackgirlpower meant to them.

I love these ladies, and I truly admire them. Read on for more info and to see how much fun we had doing this shoot, and make sure to check out these ladies and their incredible work. I'm sure you'll love them as much as I do!

Special thanks to photographer Ryan Landell for all of the images below.

So, are we super heroes,

or perhaps the dopest girl band ever?

(couldn't we be both? :))

#BlackGirlJoy- Jasmine Myrie

'Being A Black Girl- means that even with all of the struggles & hate we go through, we can come out on top and live in our joy! I choose to be positive, even when faced with adversity, and to live my best life surrounded by people I love.'

#BlackGirlFly- SuCh

'Being A Black Girl- means being grounded in the strength of all of the black women who have gone before me. It means exuding my 'fly-ness' with confidence and ease, and loving myself fully.'

#BlackGirlMagic - Monique Brooks-Roberts

'Being A Black Girl- means that I have the power and strength within to do anything I want, to love every part of myself and the skin I'm in unconditionally, and to know that I am indeed magic, capable of the impossible!'

#BlackGirlSwag- Kerrie Joy

'Being A Black Girl- means being resilient. It means that for generations, women that look like me have defied all the odds....and we've only just begun.. THIS is what 'unstoppable' looks like...'

#BlackGirlPower - Rajdulari

'Being A Black Girl- means being powerful. Out of all the things black women have endured & survived, being a black girl to me feels like belonging to a tribe of warriors. I feel extremely proud of my heritage, proud of my sisterhood, and proud of the powerful woman I am.'

What about YOU, Fashionistas?

A Day at the Office...

For this look we paired the cape with my favorite pencil skirt, a flowy cream blouse, and gold & red accessories.
