Summer is coming

One of the many perks of calling Puerto Rico our home base, is that here its summer every day. Because of this,  we are always looking for an excuse to throw on a ¨Fatkini¨, pack a little cooler with all sorts of delicious refreshing drinks and drive down to the nearest beach.
The sad part is that not many stores keep carrying beach wear for us curvy ladies through out the winter season. This is why we have to stock up, whenever we find things we like.

We were so happy to discover that two of our favorite Plus size retailers are already selling a small selection of cute affordable bathing suits in the middle of winter.

High waist bikinis from Forever 21+

Like we said in one of our posts form last year, the high waist Bikini is a great item to have in your closet, if you are looking for a little flirty, retro look. Weather you buy it in a solid color or buy them in different prints and mix the pieces up, there are many ways you can rock the infamous ¨fatkini¨. One awesome thing about rocking this look is that you show the smallest part of your tummy, so you can still feel sexy, without having to show too much skin.

For all of you that do not feel ready to go on the ¨Fatkini¨adventure, there are some one piece options that will make you look hot and feel that your precious body parts are secure. The best part about these is that they have built in control top panels that will work as a body shaper.
Halter Hot pink and black One piece suits from Torrid.
Strapless leopard print and red one piece suit Forever 21+.
Please remember that having the right support for your shape, has to be the number one priority when you are choosing your swimwear. Hopefully for the shyer girls out there, these tips will make you want to go ahead and show your curves this summer.

We advise to all that are in the need of a new suit, to act fast and get them, because they will sell out very very fast.

Have a wonderful time showing your curves to the world.

It was all about the hair

Hello Beasts!! We have been obsessed with undercuts for a while now, and finally found the time to explain to you the reason of our obsession.  

In 2006 I moved to Barcelona and as predicted discovered a whole new world, where men rolled up their denim shorts, wore skinny jeans with high top kicks and had a rockabilly Surfer/hippie chic attitude about them.

Coming from a Caribbean island, where Men have their own particular style, and most are very close minded about changing it,  It took me a while to get acquainted to the new aesthetics. I ended up falling deeply in lust with them.

It wasn´t till I came back home that I realized how much of an impact my time in Barcelona had on my taste on men. Don´t get me wrong I still had a ¨thang¨ for the smooth talking, Drake lookalikes.

I could now appreciate the difference between The Metro sexual man, and a Man that simply had his own style, and Believe me this has changed the game.

A few years later, doing research for a menswear project, I came across a picture of Nick Wooster. At that time he was the Menswear director for a large High-end department store, and now is a Fashion icon and idol for many. His love for camouflage,suits, oxfords, and tattooed arms, have wooed the fashion world, making us fall deep and hard for this man. Even my straight male friends had great things to say about this man´s style and began to emulate it. 

After all this, I began to question what about this man had made my friends change their minds about fashion, and trade their horrendous boot cut jean for a slimmer fitting one? The answer was not very far, It was all about the Undercut hair style, Mr.Wooster, David Beckham, Ryan Gosling, George Clooney and many other manly men are rocking today. 

Just like it happens with us girls, as soon as you get a new haircut, you start to change your style to match your hair. This my Beautiful Beasts, is why we love the Undercut! It has changed the way men feel about fashion. There are so many versions of this haircut that they can get. From a really funky side shaved cut to the classic 1950´s business man style. It does not matter which they chose, once they decide to change their hair style, men just keep gaining confidence in their selves and developing their own style. They are no longer scared of going to a hair salon and get their cut done by a hair stylist.

After all, there is nothing hotter than a man with great hair.
