Spring Blush

Hello Beasts!!

I know it has been a very long long time since I have made an official post on the blog. Where have I Been? Well; since the last post I worked on a super amazing project with Puertorrican designers, went to New York Fashion Week, had a crush on a guy, got a promotion at work, got selected by a top Dominican magazine to be part of an article on personal style, and kinda lost my muse for writing along the way. In other words, I had too much on my plate.

Although I have stayed in touch with you on social media, I feel like you guys need or actually I need to get back on the writing pony and give you some Fashion Loving. So since, its that time of the year where some fall in, some fall out of love, and others just try avoiding the whole subject and decide to drown themselves in delicious cocktails, champagne and sweets, I have put together a little outfit inspired in one of my new favorite color ¨Blush Pink¨.

 I recently found this amazing and perfect hued Blush pleated midi-skirt at Torrid, and like always I accepted the challenge of making a pleated light color skirt look good on my size 16/18 curvalicious body.

If I can do it so can you!!

I´m so happy to be back, and very excited for what I have in stored for you guys. So stay tuned for more outfit inspiration, shopping guides and some cool surprises. Thanks for reading and for showing me so much love. Happy Valentines Day!!!

Stay fabulous!

Summer pastels

Pastels are perfectly transitioning into our summer wardrobe. Weather you wear them as an accent color  or mix and match them, they always bring some freshness and softness to an outfit.We have been seeing them everywhere, from Forever21, Zara and ASOS to BCBG, Marc Jacobs and Céline , which means there are many fashionable options for every size and budget.

 This is  perfect example for a beach or pool day outfit, featuring pastel pieces. To give it a more tropical feel try to mix in a floral that match the color way of the solid pieces you use for the outfit. You can NEVER go wrong with a high waist number, since it hides the problem areas that must girls thin or curvy, like to hide, and accentuates the areas we love to show. If you don´t feel comfortable wearing a two piece just find a one piece that meet the characteristics, a plain pastel colored one or a floral would be awesome too with this outfit. And if you are on the smaller side and afraid all that fabric will swallow you up, well you can wear a a smaller bottom, to show your petite figure.

Hope you have a blast this weekend!
until next time!

Ootd : minimal matchy-match

Tangerine is one of the go to colors for this season, and it's not as hard as it looks to combine with other colors. In this case we paired with a floral print pump, and pulled some of the royal blue in the shoe to match with the bag. This way you an play with the colors without looking like a rainbow . Alas you may have noticed by now , this silhouette is our go to , whenever we feel like going for the modern retro look.

One little tip for finding the right Skater or pleated skirt if you have a big bum, buy the size that looks better on the bum part and go get the waist tailored to your size, this will keep the pleads in shape in the back part and you wont feel like you have the biggest But in the world.

Have fun with colors this upcoming season, and remember to always look or styles that are cut to flatter your figure, this will make you want to  keep breaking the stupid rules we were all brought up with.

Have. Great time!

Outfit of the day : hello Friday!

Its Friday and I can´t wait to finally be able to go out on the town with my friends tonight. For a night out I usually try everything on just before I go out, but recently I have been trying to plan ahead my outfits if I know I´m not going to have too much time to get ready. I bought this beautiful lamé, embroidered skirt from Forever21, for a New Years party I never went to and have only worn it once to a birthday party. So Today I decided to give it a go and pair it with a black bodysuit also from  Forever21 , a pair of black booties from Torrid, and my beloved tortoise shell inspired sunnies I found a thrift shop in NYC. 

Hope you have a great night and weekend!

Outfit Of The day : Cut out and the Caftan

I finally got my hands on this dress from Forever21, that I had been crushing on, since we featured it in one of our Weekly Finds Post. Its is the perfect plum tone and has a great fit, but be ware, it runs a size smaller than what I usually wear. I´m obsessed with the little cut out it has on the waist, and the cool way they mad the straps go from center front to the back. To give the outfit a cool bohemian feel and a little dimension I added an ethnic print caftan also from Forever21 , which I could not resist to buy.







As you might know by now, I love to buy pieces that I can take from day to night easily, because I believe in multifunctional wardrobes, specially when like me you are not a size 6 and plus size clothes are usually more expensive. Caftans are a must have piece for summertime, you can wear them over your bathing suit at the beach or like I wore it today, paired with a skater dress and a pair of booties fom Torrid. I finished off the look with vintage brocade hoop earings and a pair of Bottega Veneta round cat eye sunnies. However you choose to Rock this look always remember  to pick pieces that complement your figure.

Until Next time!!

Monday Mix : stripes, dots and metallics. Oh My!

Let's begin this week with a little mix of textures,. It's a fun way to pump up your Monday meetings and repel the Monday blues (or at least look like you are repelling it) This skater dress is perfect on every body type and black and white stripes are everywhere this season. Mix the stripes with a ethnic inspired scrappy sandal and pull the look together with a great bag in a solid bright complementary color. And of coarse, don't forget a cool pair of cateye sunniest with metallic details. Who says you have to do the matchy matchy thing to be a powerful business woman? Not us!

Summer blocking

The color block trend is here to stay and what better time to put it into practice than these transitional spring/winter to summer days. Mix bold solid colors for a tropical feel. Tangerine is one of our top five colors for this summer and it is flattering on almost all skin types. Give it a try,  Who knows, maybe you'll get a little early summer loving situation going.
