I know I have been MIA lately, making today’s post my first 2018 post. The past few months have been very fun filled with a thrown out back, followed by a procedure to block a nerve on my back, due to herniated discs, the holidays, my son’s ingrown nail, and the funnest of all, studying! But I am slowly coming back from my brief hiatus. For those of you who have been keeping up with my IG and IG stories, thank you very much…Enough about me, lets get to the fun stuff!
The busier and more hectic my life gets…the all more grateful I am for Target. How many of you feel the same? I mean, its a woman’s one stop shop DREAM. All of last month, I found myself there about 10 different times. From buying cleaning products, toiletries, to food, each time, resulting in quick personal grabs like clothes and home decor. Below are some of my newest personal faves. Tell me what you think.
The WHO WHAT WEAR ruffle dress.
This one right here was a big crowd pleaser the day I wore it. I must warn my curvier ladies though, make sure to size up, as this line of clothing runs pretty small, unless you are purchasing directly from their plus size line. All of my WHO WHAT WEAR is from their regular sizes in case you were wondering, from XL to XXL.
The “Ice Cream Museum” Xhiliration Romper
I’m sure most of you saw my posts from this, where I featured a two-tone purple outfit.
In fact, what most of you thought to be a full romper, was in deed a combination of a romper with a crop top
If you look closely you will find the waist tie from the romper hanging underneath the knot portion of the top. Versatility with all of my clothes is key when dressing myself or any of my clients. I try to mix patterns, textures, and of course colors. In this particular case, I fell in love with the uneven pedal looking crop pant look portion of the romper, and sized up so that it would be loose fitting. However when I sized up, I found myself with a bigger predicament, that being that the top portion of the romper was too loose. I had two choices…one was to wear one of my crazy patterned bandeau bras, or layer with something fun yet contrasting. After trying on various choices, I felt the most comfortable wearing it with this crop top. Although this crop top was bought in the fall, there are various inexpensive options for crop tops if you are looking to create a similar look. Click on the link for CROP TOP.
Women’s Plus Sized Ruffled French Terry Dress – ALMOST FAMOUS (Juniors)
This was the dress featured on my Instagram yesterday. In case you were wondering, no I was not lying, this dress really did cost me $8.00, well…$8.98 to be exact. If you don’t believe me, click on the link and find out. This little cute dress is part of Almost Famous’ junior plus size line at Target. For once, our young curvier, more heavy-set youth can wear what all their average sized friends and family are wearing, without feeling like an old maid, nor feeling left out. Thank you Target for providing brands like this, that cater to our younger demographic, you have no idea what you are doing to the younger minds that have often felt left out, or out of place in the world of fashion. This was a total win!..I loved it so much, I bought it in the nude color as well. I paired the dress with a GUCCI belt and some stalkings, to accentuate the waist, and voila!
Women’s Long Sleeve Ruffle Cuff Sweatshirt – Who What Wear™
Last but not least, my favorite for upcoming Valentine’s celebrations the WWW ruffled flower sweathshirt
This is a sweatshirt, that can be paired with jeans, a skirt, pants, you can even try layering it over a work collared button down white shirt, over jeans or even black, red, or white pants. This top really goes with anything. And these sleeves, I am obsessed with ruffled sleeves, I mean how baroque is that?!
In today’s IG post, I paired this top with a flirty skirt, along with sexy flowered patterned fish net like stalkings. What do you think? I was between red booties or squared heeled open toes in red. I opted for the booties seeing we are nearing the end of the booties season.
As much as I love diversity, I enjoy playing dress up. Today’s OOTD involved a lot of playing and a lot of confidence. Either way, I had lots of fun with it!..I mean how perfectly perfect is this OOTD for V-day?
