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.

Happy Shopping!

I had an amazing weekend and took just a few days too take it all in.  My first fashion show as a blogger came with a few “ahah” moments for me as a blogger.  However, it was an amazing show.  Curvy ladies I would like to show you a few designers and boutiques that cater to us!!!  Most of all each and every model is comfortable in the skin they are in!!!  Be proud of your curves.  We can rock a runway just like a size  2.  I selected a few pics that I took to show you the runway as was well as provide information on ALL the designers and boutiques.  Check them out!!!

*Each pic has details.  Happy Shopping!!!

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!!!

I have been asked, if I only shop “high end” , custom , or only boutiques.  I am a NON Discrementory shopper!  I like, it fits, I BUY!  Once upon a time, I was a label shopper ONLY.  It had to be a …. or a ….. for me to wear it.  Now, if it looks good, I purchase it.  It does not have to be a label or designer. 

Today, I want to show a few looks that I would hands down buy from Target.  Yep.  Target.  Check out these great pieces!  Curvy ladies, all of these fits come in our size!  Check out the prices as well.  Winning!!!!

Let’s celebrate women of all walks of life, all ages,and all ethnicities.  Being a woman, you wear many different hats.  We are nurturers by nature.  So today, we CELEBRATE!  Did you tell another woman today that she is AWESOME?  Did you compliment another woman?  You still have time!  Women empowering women!  What a concept?  

My prayer today is simply for us (women) to commit to supporting and encouraging each other.  Be in competition with helping other women to succeed.  Can you take a moment to imagine with me?  Imagine when a woman is embarking upon a new business venture, there are other women calling to support her with advice and offering to help.  Imagine two women having a disagreement, and one woman shutting down other women weighing in on the situation to prevent further hurt and damage.  Imagine a world with women encouraging and supporting!   It brings with YOU!  Try being supportive and encouraging versus speaking negatively about another women.  Start today.  Try it!!

Happy  International Women’s Day!
