Our night was FLAWLESS.

As you all know, we put on an AMAZING show at Dazzling Lounge on June 18th to pre-launch our plus size clothing line. What can we say? It was simply out of this world. The event was a total success and we couldn't have asked for more. God has been so good to us and we definitely take this as a blessing. We want to thank you for coming out to the show and supporting us and the other designers/musicians involved. We couldn't have done it without you.

Wedge-Tastic!


Normally I stick to flats and gladiators but this summer I`m trying something new. WEDGES! I picked this pair up from Torrid after going through many different styles. Instantly, I fell in love with the comfort. Not only that, but with size 12 feet, finding something cute is usually very hard. Torrid has always been my shoe haven but this time, they really knocked it out of the park. I really can`t get enough. For those of you full figured ladies with insecurities about wearing heels, try a wedge. You`ll be surprised how good they make your outfit look. In this outfit, I threw on a pair of jeans, a black top, a turban and my look was wedge-tastic!

Behind the scenes of our AMAZING night!

What can we truly say to explain how amazing our show turned out? We really can't find the words. And although we cant wait to post the official photos of the night, we thought we would show you a little of the process before the show! Special thanks to Faces By Pureness who did Flaws of Couture's makeup for the night! Also to Maria Hewitt, our hair stylist, who is actually SOOOO talented. We love and appreciate you both.

Below are just some in-between photos that I managed to capture before the show!

Zebra Print for ya!

We did some last minute shopping today for some shoes to wear to Flaws of Couture's pre launch this Saturday (Need a ticket? Click here! 5 days left!). (We've hardly had any time AT ALL to look after ourselves lately.)
Fortunately, I came across some beautiful heels while at Burlington Coat Factory. This zebra number is a size eleven and fits like a glove. My shoe size is actually ten (10) but usually when the heels are 5 inches, you have to go up a size for comfort. I am very content with my purchase! I got a couple other pairs too that I'll be sure to show you soon. And I can't wait to show you what I pair these beauties with! I love them...What do you think?

(Sorry for the blur, took this one from my phone!)

Happy Birthday to Me!

I truly believe in Birthdays. I love them (correction: I love mine. lol). And even though I come from a household that usually begs to differ, I can't help but make a big fuss out of another year well lived. Unfortunately, I couldn't do exactly what I always planned on doing this year, I still had an AMAZING time. Planning a show (FLAWLESS: June 18th 2011! Got your ticket? Click here.) around the same time as your birthday usually makes your birthday seem very insignificant. Despite that, I think I had the best birthday weekend EVER. I couldn't ask for better friends. Here are just a few photos for you. I tried something new. Y'all KNOW I love to try new things. So...check out the lipstick! I FELL.IN.LOVE. with Mac's "Rebel" lipstick. Its a very deep red/purple. I definitely intended on following the pink nude trend until I was told to try on this colour by the Mac consultant. BEAUTY-FULL
