Sweatshirt Glam feat. YOURS Clothing

The FIT:
Sweatshirt Yours Clothing | Skirt Zara | Booties JustFab

Sweatshirt weather is officially here dolls! Not cold enough for a coat but brisk enough for more than a Tshirt. I love this sweatshirt from Yours Clothing with sheer sleeves and a jeweled collar. For starters it's in one of my favorite colors for fall, Grey. Then although its casual enough to wear with jeans its also glam enough to take it up a notch for a more dressed up look. In this look I chose the latter and paired it with a bold red lip, skater skirt and new booties from JustFab.

Yours Clothing is a plus size clothing company based in the UK with tons of great things for my curvy ladies. They were kind enough to send me a few pieces to dress my lovely lady lumps that I will be sharing with you soon. Be sure to check out their site for beautiful on trend pieces.

Fall Transitions: The Floral Dress Remix

The Fit:
Dress ASOS (old)| Jacket J.Crew (old) similar below| Shoes Shoedazzle FilmMe ( On SALE HERE)

Whenever I find myself in a style rut I like to find new ways to remix old pieces. With the changing seasons I'm able to have a bit more fun and flexibility with my looks. Usually my style ruts mean I'm not motivated to buy anything new and lack vision and creativity in my outfits. That has been my mood as of late. But with fall rapidly approaching I'm getting inspired and excited for layers!

Today I challenged myself to turn this somewhat conservative floral piece, I like to wear to Sunday service, into something stylish and nighttime appropriate. Adding a light weight coat, a dark fall lip and sassy heels and this dress is ready for date night or drinks with friends.

How are you dolls remixing pieces in your wardrobe these days?

Hey loves, so today I'm bringing you a quick recap of Day 2 of fashion week. It was a pretty eventful day that started with a quick beat of the face before heading to Brooklyn for the Street Style Block Party then the LaQuan Smith show I reviewed for you lovelies HERE then ending up at Milk Studios for a few presentations. Whew, when I write it down it sounds like so much....because it was. By day 2 I was beat and didn't make it to any of the night parties. 

Here are some pics from my day with my highlights being the LaQuan show and Pyer Moss presentation. This line does luxary sportswear RIGHT and it doenst hurt that Usher and all his yumminess was in attendance. :-)

NYFW Show Review: LaQuan Smith SS 15

Today I'm coming to you with a review of the LaQuan Smith presentation, which was surely a highlight of my NYFW trip. LaQuan's presentation was simply fantastic. Sleek modern silhouettes with a futuristic, sexy and simplistic vibe. Models were donned in mostly black and white with pops of color for good measure. For me, what truly did it was the fabrics and silhouettes that blew me away. The laser cut leather pieces were pure poetry with the long sleeved trench dress being my favorite. The 2 piece set and low cut bomber jacket ran a close second. I've been following LaQuan for sometime now and his use of leather and unconventional fabrics come as no surprise. Hello, anyone remember Rihanna in that gold jumpsuit in her 'Rude Boy' video?! However, LaQuan didn't stop wowing us there, he added pieces with a gorgeous galactic glow and see through cutouts. All very hot, very sexy with a bit of edge.
The beauty guru in me also couldn't help but notice the hair and makeup. For makeup he chose a fresh and simple soft smokey eye, defined brows and a nude lip. For hair, a soft curl with a slight wave was the perfect compliment. This combo was the perfect choice leaving the focal point on the beautifully crafted clothes.
My fav, fav look!!

Bravo Mr. Smith. I can't wait to see which celebs are spotted in these pieces, Mrs. Kardashian-West is surely a fan and so am I. Check out this video of the event to see the entire line dolls.
