Mother’s Day is such a hard holiday for me.  My mother passed away in 1997, and I still get emotional around this time of year.  My awesome fashion sense came from her.  So, I wanted my outfit to represent her style and class.  She LOVED white and gold.  So, here is my twist on her favorite colors.  Maybe one day, I will get bold and wear a hat.

Happy Mother’s Day!!  

Happy Shopping!  #curvybosslady

Let’s face it.  There are days (if not all the time), you want to hide your middle section.  The maxi is PERFECT.  A maxi with a wide band provides a slimming illusion.  However, a maxi skirt that does not have the band can still provide ample coverage.  The flow and length make the skirt.  If the skirt has too much “bulk” or not enough “fullness”, it wil provide a dumpy look.  Be sure to fit the maxi to your body type this last key to completing a great look with a maxi skirt.

Here are a few of my faves.  Yes.  I wear each ALL year.  Setting my own seasonal rules unless it is 90 degrees and above, all rules are out the door.  I just want to be cool and comfortable in that heat.  Make no mistake, I will rock each one with a “wife beater” tank and an incredible neck piece.  

Happy Shopping!  Be inspired and do YOU!!

One of the HOTTEST trends this Spring is the mixing and matching of prints.  Either you absolutely LOVE or you HATE it.  As with any fashion trend, you can choose to embrace and wear it or don’t wear it.  It is not for everyone.  I just want to know, ” Can A Curvy Woman  Rock the prints?”  Well…OF COURSE!!!  Here are a few of my picks.

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies.  If you are over 35 (or maybe not) and a little heavier than you were in high school.  Chances are you need to think about SHAPEWEAR.  You can have on the baddest outfit in the room.  However, if it does not fit well… 😳, it is not a good look.  A simple back roll or belly button imprint can ruin your look.  These things are controllable!!!  They are you.  They are me.  While we are deciding to try the latest diet, go back to the gym, or take away our favorite foods it is imperative to have the right SHAPEWEAR.  Everyone has different needs when it comes to SHAPEWEAR. Tummy control, reduce back fat, smooth out thighs, etc.  So, this is our help until we lose the weight.  Many of us LOVE the Maxi dress with a nice fit to our curves.  Don’t wear it without the SHAPEWEAR.  Smooth out the look.  

Note:  A waist trainer is NOT SHAPEWEAR.  Please do not wear underneath your outfit.  It bulks up the look and is not discrete.  

Here are a few recommendations for SHAPEWEAR with purchase info and site.

Happy Shopping!!!
