Casual Favorites


What I’m Wearin’…

Hey guys!  Here’s an outfit from a while back.  The pictures aren’t the best since I’m indoors but I hope ya like it!  I’m wearing my favorite dress.  It’s a Cobalt blue dress by Calvin Klein that I picked up at a Ross for $30 bucks!  It’s one of my favorite buys and it’s so comfy!  Plus, it has pockets and any dress with pockets totally steals my heart!


This dress is cut deep in the front and with me having a large chest, it shows waaaaaayy too much cleavage!  So, I draped a square silk scarf that I scored from a local thrift shop across the neckline and got lots of compliments for this “pseudo-bibbed” front.  LOL

What I’m Lovin’…

Speaking of favorites, here is a list of some of my favorite blogs that specialize in Curvy or Plus Size Fashion!  My top 10 are:

Full Figure Plus


My Blogfather!  Glen Johnson’s blog is very informative and it gives a male’s perspective of the growing plus size community!  Plus, he’s very kind!



Young Fat Fabulous


One of the first blogs, that I really got into.  Gabi Gregg was one of the first ladies that showed me that young, plus size gals can be trendy too!



Stylish Curves


Gotta Love Alissa!  I check on Ms. Wilson’s awesome blog everyday, even from my phone.  Her fresh style gives me inspiration!



Curvy Fashionista


Marie Denee’ is a pioneer in the word of blogging period!   She’s definitely one to look up to as far as business and style!



The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Style


Chastity Garner’s incredible blog was actually the first one I had ever read.  I went to school with this gal although I never met her and whether she knows it or not, I remember her being fabulous even way back when at GSU!



Pockets and Bows


Brittany’s cute blog is one that definitely inspires me!  I love the outfits that she puts together!  I feel like she, more than anyone else whose blog I follow, is closer to my own unique body type.  So, she’s definitely one that I’m watching!



Fat Shopaholic


Tiffany’s quirky style is so innovative!  Her outfit posts always make me smile!





I love how Jay Miranda’s outfit posts always add a touch of drama and glam.  She’s so cuteypatootey and so is her blog!



Girl With Curves


Alissa of Stylish Curves introduced me to this blog during her Stylish Curves of the Day segment.  I immediately fell in love with Tanesha Awasthi’s beautiful photography which showcases her gorgeous personal style.  Definitely worth following!



God’s Favorite Shoes


A great blog by a fellow curvy girl!  Reiko’s sense of humor tickles me to death while I’m browsing her fabulous outfit posts!



These are only a few of the hundreds (yes, hundreds) of blogs I keep up with.  I’ve met so many friends during this blogging adventure and I’ll be introducing some of them to you guys soon!  So, stay posted!


What I’m Hearin’…

Well, kiddies!  You’ve seen my favorite wardrobe piece and you’ve met my favorite blog authors.  So, it’s only fair that I leave you with my favorite song!  It’s an oldie but goodie!  I used to play this song on repeat every morning.  Something about that beat just makes me spring to life!  I even love the cheesiness of the video!  This week’s song in my head and in my heart is Luther Vandross’s “Never Too Much”!  Enjoy babydolls!



Many smoochie boochies to you all and I love you guys!  Don’t forget to “like” me on Facebook and catch me on Twitter and Lookville!!!
