MAC x 15 Custom Palette


Last Summer, I started incorporating a few beauty posts here and there on the blog. Aside from fashion, I am a makeup enthusiast and I love love love lipstick and eyeshadows. I will start posting a few of my purchases and beauty looks on the blog for those of you who may be interested. This MAC X 15 Palette is my latest obsession.

Some of you may know and for the ones who don't, MAC had reduced the price of their refill pans to $6.00. I was totally geeked about and have been building custom MAC Palettes for work, travel, etc as it will be so much easier to transport than my normal clam-shell packaged MAC shadows. I am in love with this palette and the total cost was less than 100 bucks to get colors I truly love.

I know there are pre-made palettes out there that are much cheaper, but for me, a lot of times with pre-made palettes I only like a few colors and never use the rest. With these I know that I will get full use out of every color and I can replace them when they hit pan. I can't wait to share more custom palettes in the future and also more beauty purchases.

Here are the colors I chose:

Top row left to right: soft brown, sushi flower, paradisco, cranberry, beauty marked
Middle row left to right: bronze, passionate, coral, sketch, carbon
Bottom row left to right: satin taupe, handwritten, fig 1, deep damson , black tied





Until Next Time,

ColorBlocked Kimono


While Maxis are a serious staple for me any time of year, Kimonos are coming in at 2nd place for my favorite thing to wear. These days my style is so chill. I love a get up and go look that is no fuss but still makes a statement. For this look I shopped my closet for all of these pieces.  This Kimono embodies everything about my everyday style. While my style continues to evolve to more simple and practical looks, my love for color will remain forever.

I purchased this Kimono a few Months ago for my cruise to Mexico and have been wearing it nonstop since. If you follow me on Instagram I'm sure you've seen it from my cruise photos but I had yet to actually blog a look in it so I decided to take some time to shoot a few pics for the blog on my way to a Jazz Festival here in my city. I'm a music lover and I try to attend as many music events in or around my city as I can fit into my schedule.


Kimono- Fashion to Figure (sold out)
Black Top- Ashley Stewart (last summer) 
Jeans- JCPenney 
Flats- Lane Bryant 
Bag- Justfab

Feeling Godly.........



There is nothing more liberating as  a plus size woman than wearing all white. For years, so many people have told us that white is "unflattering" and "makes you look bigger" but I beg to differ. I think white can look very elegant and polished on any size. The key to wearing white is the fit.


When I saw this dress on GCGME I decided to try the company out. I am not one to try a lot of new companies online because sending items back can be such a hassle. I loved this dress so much tho, I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did because I love it. Because the dress was white, I went up an one size from what I normally wear (at the time of purchase this dress went up to 4x) to make sure it flowed and didn't stick to me.  During the Spring and Summer nothing is worse than feeling hot and sticky.

The other thing I really love about this dress is the sleeve length......for anyone that is self conscious about the arms this would be perfect! Overall, I will be checking them out in the future to see what other hidden gems the website may have.

As DEJ loaf said on her song, I was rocking all white feeling Godly.

The clutch was unfortunately made by a company that is no longer in business but I found a similar store and linked it below for you guys.

P.S. After reaching out to them to rave about this dress they gave me a code for my readers. If you use the code style4curves you will not only get 10 percent off but also free express shipping! Happy Shopping!!!

An Ode to Spring (The Floral Maxi)


Hiiiiiiiii!!!!!

I feel like it's been so LONG since I have blogged an OOTD look but I truly needed that break from blogging. When blogging feels a job and you work a full time job already then it's time for a break but I digress. I'm just glad that my favorite season is back and I'm hoping to stay more in the groove of things.

Yesterday I celebrated my 3rd wedding Anniversary. I just recently came off a cruise to Mexico and my Mother has been ill so our anniversary vacay had to be postponed but in the meantime we had an amazing day together, ate a nice dinner, and watched our Wedding DVD like we do every year on our anniversary. I decided to rock a dress that was an ode to Spring. It has all of my favorite elements ....maxi length, a little cleavage for added sexiness, a built in belt,  and PINK floral print (I love pink) on a black background. When I saw this dress I just thought of Spring and I chose my wedding date specifically because Spring is the beginning of a new season and my wedding day was the beginning of a new season of my life.  Here is a copy of the Flipagram I created  and shared on IG in remembrance of my wedding day:

Dress -c/o Chic and Curvy (Get it Here)
Bag- Old
Lipstick: Colourpop More Better

If you are looking for the perfect Spring dress I highly recommend this one! The 3/4 sleeve is perfect for those of you who are self conscious about your arms, the design hides a multitude of sins and is very slimming and it is light and comfortable to wear. Out of 10 stars I give it an 11.

Until Next Time,

The Look For Less- Jumpsuit Edition



Hey guys!!!

I am still settling into this New Year and slowly getting my blogging groove back. I know it's getting close to Valentine's and a lot of you may be looking for cute things to rock ....some looking for traditional attire and some may be looking for something a little bit different. I was looking at jumpsuits and came across an idea for a Look For Less.

I love an asymmetrical peplum top and now they have started making the jumpsuit form. I saw a GORGEOUS jumpsuit but kept looking and ended up finding something similar that costed significantly less. 64.00 less!!!! Check these options out and let me know what you think!!!!


Black Jumpsuit- Eloquii (Get It Here)
Blue Jumpsuit- Fashion To Figure (Get It Here)

Which one do you like the best? Will you be purchasing either one?
For me, if I was going for something that I considered an investment piece, I would go with the black. But if you want to try a trendy look for less, I would definitely get the Fashion to Figure version.  I love this jumpuit because even the women who carry a lot of their weight in their midsection will feel confident wearing it. 



Until Next Time,
