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.

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:

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.

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,

Leopard Kimono


I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. I am so glad it's over.....while I love making new traditions with my Husband I definitely wasn't looking forward to cooking. For Thanksgiving I wanted to wear something that was flowy and easy to wear. I decided to put together some separates.

If you have been following my blog you know I'm obsessed with all things leopard so when I saw this leopard kimono it was right up my alley. I love the length and the print is EVERYTHING. I love the top because it's perfect for the extra fluff and bloating after eating a little too much. I also love the heart shaped neckline. This was a simple no fuss look and perfect for hosting for the Holidays. Luckily it was warm in my city for Thanksgiving just a little windy.
