What I’m Wearin’…

Here is what I wore to the Girls Night Out party that I hosted at Lane Bryant!  (I’ll talk more about it in the next section).  I purchased this dress from Catherine’s!  Yes, I said it, CATHERINE’S!  Any plus size fashionista knows that Catherine’s has a reputation for being a bit on the boring side.  I mean, they’re perfect for going to church, but they don’t offer very many “stunners” that you would wear on the street or for a night out or even for work.  I usually pass them by but recently I decided to give them one more chance and I was pleasantly surprised.  Some of the pieces were really updated.  I’m going to mention more about that in an upcoming post complete with pictures.

What I’m Lovin’… DSCN0769

I think it’s obvious that the Girls Night Out event is totally “What I’m Lovin” this week!  Click the graphic below to check out the entire album or click here to see it on Facebook!




We had a lot of fun and we worked our poor personal shopper, Khalia (sp?)  to death!  I owe her big time!  


She and all of the ladies at Lane Bryant were very nice and very helpful!  I initially planned to have this post done before Valentine’s Day to showcase Lane Bryant’s intimates collection but time is not my friend sometimes!  However, here are some of the pieces modeled by the lovely Ms. Raina Hester.

The event went over really well and we had a GREAT time!  The sales and clearance were awesome, plus an extra 30% off ain’t bad!  :o)  The associates at Lane Bryant claimed that this was the largest turnout that they’ve had in a very long time!  **so proud**  Thank you to everyone who attended and made this event a success!  I’d love to do it again real soon so be on the lookout for the next Girls Night Out!



What I’m Hearin’…

Welp!  Love is in the air!  So, how about another sexy one?  Please enjoy, the song in my head and in my heart for this week,  Ms. India Arie’s “Brown Skin”


Oh, why the heck not?  Here’s another one!  Ladies and Gentlemen, Ms. Jill Scott’s “Lyzel in E Flat”
