Another Melissa McCarthy Experience via Penningtons

I've been so lax lately. I'm trying this new thing where I literally let life lead by making sure that I stop sweating the small stuff--- and even the not so small stuff. After all, shit happens and you really only have control over how you react to everything coming your way.

Who is going to stop you?

I have been that one fat girl that's not feeling the "sexy onsie" look that has been trending. But if I'm going to be completely honest, it was probably because I thought I couldn't find one that would look great on me.

4 Holiday Looks That Don't Overdo Sequins or Glitter

I love the holidays. But, I must admit…I hate the sudden overload of sequins & glitter. 
Okay…so maybe "hate" is a strong word. But if it were between velcro sneakers and a sequins sweater...I'd probably be in that velcro ALL day. 

So,  I figure that I can't be the only one. It would safe to assume that the holiday season only brings pure confusion for girls like me when shopping for the perfect outfit. Whether it be for your work Christmas party or just your annual family dinner, your motive is to look your absolute best WITHOUT being the big ball of glitter at the party. Well, search no more.  We've put together 4 Holiday Looks that Don't Overdo Sequins or Glitter.

But, for today, lets ease you in with 2 out of the 4 looks we've prepared!
 Garcia's look is first!

Look 1:

Although we love champagne, rose golds, silvers and bright reds…there really is nothing like a little black dress. And I know that we don't typically think of it for the holidays, but we're here to prove to you that it can be done. This Joseph Ribkoff dress from Sexy Plus Clothing is super limited. And we understand why. The subtle sequins detailing is JUST ENOUGH to kick this little black number up a notch while adding the Holiday flare. But because we are all about standing out and making a statement, what's a black dress without a  bold accenting colour. This brand new royal blue faux fur stole from FOC Details is the perfect piece to throw over your shoulder at this year's Holiday party.
 Try it. I dare you!

Faux Fur Collar/Stole: FOC Details
Heels: Torrid

Then I'm up next. If you're a little bit dramatic like myself, you need to pick up this dress from Sexy Plus Clothing. It's the perfect cross between "show-stopper" and "classy lady" all in one dress. If you're really not into the whole sequins look like myself but don't mind a little shine, this dress is for you. Once again, we incorporate the colour because we're MAKING A STATEMENT and the fringe down the sides of your curves come in to remind you and everyone else in the room, that YOU are the life of the party.

Look 2:

I decided to throw this beautiful Forever 21 Plus ivory coloured trench coat on top to pull the look together. A good coat can do that to just about any outfit. Every curvy girl should invest in their coat game! You'll thank me later. Trust me. 

Jacket: Forever 21 Plus
Heels: Target

Tell us what you think! Stay tuned for the remaining 2 outfits this week!

50 Shades

Grey. My new obsession. 

I had this outfit put aside for the longest time. I was waiting for the perfect time to wear it when I realized that there's never a more perfect time than right now. I love everything about the shades of grey that I'm seeing in so many stores this season. That's one of the main reasons why I had to make sure that even in my store (FOC STORE), grey was well represented...

This whole look was inspired by my FOC detachable faux fur collar piece (Buy HERE). I knew that I wanted to find all grey pieces to surround it, so I started my hunt and came up with this. My pants are an old buy from the Target Phillip Lim collection. I love these joggers. Who am I kidding…I love ALL joggers. I decided to pair it with this SUPER SEXY cropped turtle neck from Rebdolls. Over top, this ever so popular Forever 21 Plus grey jacket was a perfect fit. I've had my eye on it for about two months now and yesterday, I finally caved in. 

Wouldn't it have been super dope if I had a pair of grey heels?! Yeah, well…the way my shoe collection it set up…I had to work with what I had. So, I put on my strappy black heels from Target and called it a day. 

Speaking of "working with what you have", I've been getting quite a few e-mails and DMs about how I've  gone about blogging and getting clothing over the last 5 years etc. I want to say to anyone who is looking into blogging that it is important that you live and work within your means. Like I said, I didn't have a pair of grey heels to wear with this outfit. Did I want a pair? Hell, yes. Was it the end of my blogging career if I didn't get a pair? Hell, no. Contrary to popular belief, blogging can be very expensive. Not everything I wear is handed to me by a company. Everything I'm showing you right now, I bought. Make sure that you learn to work with what you have! It's an amazing feeling when you can pull from your closet and recreate new looks from old pieces. It is extremely possible.

Tell me what you think about this look. I'm almost sure that it's about to be one of my favourites. I'm also hoping you all are well. See you soon.
