Mini Vacation ~ Top 5 Items to Bring to Wear

This spring I told myself that I was going to do 3 things; show some more skin, be confident in who I am and love myself more and more every day. Since I turned 31 years old two weeks ago I continued to celebrate my birthday last weekend by traveling with my girls on a mini vacation to Vegas! Las Vegas was so much fun and I enjoyed my 4 days in “sin city” LOL.

When traveling on a mini vacation these are the top 5 items I always bring to wear:
1. Under Garments: I always make sure that I wear some type of spanx or shaper under my outfits. I brought 3 different shapers on this mini vacation that I found all at Walmart (full body shaper, shorts shaper, and panty shaper). They are all true to size, I got a 3x in all of them and they are made by Maidenform. Also a strapless bra is necessary, and you already know to invest in good bra.

2. Black Dress: You never can go wrong with a cute black dress. I decided to bring this all black peplum dress with lace at the top that I bought at ROSS. It really fits me well. Also I wore a lace top (Macy’s), leporad bra (Lane Bryant), black skirt (Forever21) size large, Purse (ROSS).

3. Shorts: I love having a good pair of comfortable shorts to show off my thick thighs. I brought my Torrid shorts that I bought last summer. I paired it with this beige Lane Bryant shirt and Payless heels.

4. Day Dress: I brought a green maxi dress that I got from a small boutique in Oakland and a cute black day dress that I just got from Lane Bryant.

5. Swimwear: For this mini vacation I decided to bring two options for swim wear. I mixed and matched my bottom and bikini top. My first look is a mint green bikini top that I got at Forever21 in the plus size section. I am wearing a 3x in it.

The second look is a purple top from Walmart. Originally this purple top had straps, but I made it strapless (it looked better). Side note: I wore strapless Lane Bryant bras with my swimsuits.

The hot pink bottoms are from Lane Bryant (I’m wearing a size 22). They are very comfortable and hold everything in. I love them!


I hope you enjoyed my mini vacation outfits. Remember that curvaceous and plus size women are dime pieces who are top of the line and nothing less, always, 2 SNAPS TO THAT!



Featured Fridays is a way that I can showcase Curvaceous and Plus Size Women rockin’ an outfit that I would wear or simply because I like their style. Also I will showcase fashionable local businesses that cater to curvaceous and plus size women. Today’s Feature is a fly woman named Sukay. Sukay Sow’s beautiful smile and stylish outfit captured my attention when I met her. This Oakland born and raised West African and Native American loves to mix up comfy and sexy for the curvy women. She has such a great spirit and is a self-confident curvy woman. When I first saw this “Iconic” shirt that she is rockin’ I thought it was just a top, but this is a hoodie that she matched with her cute peak –a- boo skirt. I love how she threw a hoodie, skirt and some heels on! Sukay’s entire outfit is from one of my favorite stores, Forever21. The great thing about Forever21 is that we curvy girls can find something that fits even if your particular store doesn’t have plus sizes. I hope you enjoyed this comfy and sexy look because I know I did!

Feature~ “Naeemah the DIVA”

Happy Sunday,

My friend Naeemah always gives me life every time I see her outfits. She is fierce and a diva. Naeemah carries confidence wherever she goes and always spreads “joyful blessings”, which she always says at the end of a conversation. Naeemah’s calm, cool and collective spirit inspires me to do more in the world. She always knows how to word things and encourages others. She is known for her eclectic style and can wrap a turban like no one else I know. I love her passion and determination. Most importantly she does her and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. I love how she puts together different outfits and makes them pop out with a turban and her accessories.
