Little Sister Swag?

So, I decided to let my 13 year old sister (who takes all of my photos by the way) dress me this time around. She's  a little fashionista herself, so I gave her the chance to call THIS ONE her own. Why not? When I got this dress from Forever 21 PLUS, I had no specific intentions for it. I just thought of it as a cute summer barbecue/picnic dress. Clearly, Dahlia had something else in mind for it. I'm actually surprised at her combination. Impressed actually.

There's a huge craze going on with the sneaker wedges I see! I gave them a try and MANNN are they comfy. I definitely understand why everyone loves these. I can't wait to throw them on with a pair of jeans! You'd never guess where I got my trial pair from! Wait for it.....
WALMART.

Yup, that's where I got them. I figured, if I wanna try something this trendy, I might as well penny-pinch. Who knows if this will be something I want to wear next year. So simple advice for you ladies this time around: If you want to try super "trendy" looks that may not be around for a substantial amount of time...find a cheaper way to experiment! The funny thing about "fads" are that they may be out of style by next year. And I don't know about you, but I don't want to spend $250.00 for a pair of sneaker wedges that are going to be a "fashion faux pas" by January. Go for a cheaper pair and work it out! Just my opinion! This is not to say that you should shop for cheap clothes as a full figured woman. That doesn't always work well for us. I truly believe in quality and spending the money to get it. But like I said, for "trendy things", think twice and weight your options!

Let me know what you think so I can tell Dahlia!

MOB.

I'm super lax and satisfied with this look. On my way out on the town and this is what my hands came up with. I think almost anyone can spice up a bad hair day with a skully (hat). I think the cool thing about this look is that its so masculine yet so girly with the pop of colour on the lips. Makes you feel BADDD, but so sexy all in the same breath! This colour is so similar to the Nicki Minaj lip glass from Mac, but it's actually "Pink Parfait" by LA Colors! Talk about the cheap route! There are ways around the dolls, ladies! There are WAYS.

My denim jacket and lace peplum top are both from no other than the fabulous, Addition Elle. While the leggings were a SUPERB find from Winners. I got these shoes from Payless YEARS ago...and look who's back out to play? Don't you just love how trends just come right back around? I'm not one to be afraid of colour but I'm also not one to run away from black! I think Kim Kardashian and Kanye have definitely rubbed off their monochrome habits on the WHOLE fashion industry. I'm definitely not afraid of piggy-backing on that trend! 
I mean, why not? It's sharp and it's HOT.

My word of advice, it's okay flourish in your androgynous side as plus size women.
As long as you DO IT WELL.

"Luxe Vain Boutique" Review #2

When I found out that Luxe Vain Boutique was sending some pieces our way, I just knew I had to have this dress. It immediately spoke royalty and finesse to me. Between the bold red and the sexy mesh cut outs, I knew I had to give it a try. What I love about online boutiques like Luxe Vain is that they give a certain type of women the option to dress the way she dreams of. I'm sure it's not ALL of us that feel super riskayyy, and thats cool. But, lets just say "some of us" want to show it off. We're okay in our skin and thats an awesome message to embrace. 

I've been waiting for the weather to change in order to do this outfit justice, but I just couldn't hold it any longer. Toronto has been up and down with the climate lately, so I had to just go for it! I want to say thank you to Luxe Vain for this beautiful gown. Ladies, it you're looking for a place to get unique, sexy and trendy pieces for those nights you want to remember, shop Luxe Vain Boutique
They DO NOT disappoint.
