Broadway & Snapchat with Brandy

image

My brother Stephan woke me up early this morning to tell me that we are on Brandy’s Blog!  How exciting!!! He truly is her BIGGEST FAN.  Stephan and I got the opportunity to teach the real “B” Brandy Norwood how to use Snapchat after she did an amazing job in “Chicago” on Broadway.  This was one of the best experiences in New York. After Stephan taught her, I had to get a snap in there too (lol). Make sure to follow her on Snapchat (TheNextBrandy).

Hidden Treasure Of The Jumper

image

I love a great bargain! Last weekend I needed a cute outfit to wear to LA, but really what I wanted was a bargain. I found this comfortable royal blue jumper at Rainbow for only $19.99. If I could have done a flip in the store I would have! LoL. This jumpsuit comes in size 1x-3x, zips in the back and the plus it has pockets.  I paired it with silver sandals and a white shrug both from Ross. This outfit with chic, comfy, and affordable. My entire hidden treasure outfit cost $40.00. I’m really doing a flip right now!

Target’s Multi Print Dress

IMG_0266

Any day is a great day when you walk into Target to get one thing, then you find a ton of other things that you don’t really need. We’ll I needed this cute Multi Print dress and bought it!  It seems like every girl from straight size to plus size has this exact dress.  I fell in love with this multi print, it reminds me of African print which I love.  This dress fits perfectly for me and comes in sizes S to XXL.  I wore this dress last weekend for my birthday game night.  It is comfortable and the plus is the front zipper, if you want to be a little sexier you can zip it down a bit or you can leave it zipped up.  It wasn’t hard to match this Target Dress with my white Forever21 purse and throw on my black Payless Shoes.  Hope you enjoy my outfit of the day.

32 Birthday Candles!!!

Desiree_4
Turning a year older means blessings, parties to plan, happiness and joy, but most importantly a Birthday Outfit! Last year I wore https://fancydime.com/2014/03/ which I loved the fit, but this year I needed to blow my 32 Birthday Candles out in a fun and sexy outfit.

I got my birthday outfit inspiration from my friend and fashion blogger GarnerStyle. When I saw her red tutu it screamed me all over it! LOL. Once I got the cute and fun tutu, I shopped in my own closet to find pieces to put together. It’s great to shop in your closet before buying new clothes or accessories because you can find hidden treasures sometimes or clothes that you haven’t worn in a while. I lucked out and found my sexy lace strapless peplum top from Torrid; my black clutch, and my black & white belt from Lane Bryant . I tucked in my peplum top for the look; the clutch was worn last year for my birthday (it goes with everything); I tried on my black and white belt and it worked for this look. The tutu is a size 18 from eShakti. Three things I love about this tutu is the mid calf length, the side zipper that holds you in, but banded waist with an elastic smocked center back waist, and a plus is the side pockets. My moto jacket is from a local thrift store, click here for a similar look .

31 years old was great, but I know 32 will be filled with more success, happiness, love, wisdom, and fun! I blew out all of my 32 Birthday Candles on my carrot cake (my fav), and my new chapter has begun.

“New York State of Mind”~Full Figured Fashion Week

As soon as the airplane landed in New York, my heart was beating super fast (over joyed with excitement) to attend the fabulous Full Figured Fashion Week. Last week I had the time of my life with my friend and photography Elaine. Elaine and I explored all over New York City, from getting some delicious cheesecake from Boss Cake in Manhattan to Soho’s Ms. Lilly’s Jamaican food. But the real reason why I came to the Big Apple was to experience the last Full Figured Fashion Week 2014 (FFFW). Last summer I told all of my friends that I was going to make it to this FFFW, and this I did. Having my hotel across the street from Madison Square Garden was a true delight; we were in a prime location and had the time of our lives.

“Curves in the City Trunk Show”
I must say Thursday was a busy day for me, so by the time I got to this Trunk Show I was exhausted, but it was worth attending. I was greeted as soon as I walked in by the event planner and a glass of white wine. I got to meet some great people like Shatrovia Phillips who just wrote a book entitled , I can’t wait to read it. Also I was absolutely in love Ebony’s C.O.C. (“Curves of Confidence”) t-shirts. It was so much shopping that I can’t wait to do a blog post of all my outfits that I found.

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!

Brunch Ready…

DSCF2520I absolutely love the month of March.  Many may say because it’s my birthday month, but really it’s the beautiful springtime flowers.  Okay, and because it’s my birthday month too!  Today’s outfit was inspired by my Walmart Freesia color purse.  I threw this striped black and white with a hint of yellow dress together just in time for Sunday Brunch.  When I found this dress, I didn’t have time to try it on in the store but I knew it was coming home with me.  This size 22 Voir Voir dress is a form fitting dress that I love!  Sometimes I don’t like stripes because of my stomach area, but this dress won me over. I shop everywhere because you never know where you may find quality, a great deal, and fabulous fashion. This entire outfit was under $100 dollars and I ready for my Sunday Brunch.

WOULD YOU BE MINE? ♥

038
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I asked myself should I buy something new or find something in my closet? I decided to find something in my closet.
When you haven’t wore something in a while it becomes new all over again, that’s how I feel about this cute floral patterned dress that I found last year at Macy’s. This year I’m living the single life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up on Valentine’s Day, because Lord knows I am!!!
When I originally wore this dress, it was worn in a country-chic type of way. For my birthday, I went horseback riding and this dress was paired with a vest, cow girl boots, and a cow girl hat. As you can tell – I was really into the cowgirl theme at the time. I even took it as far as going to Napa! That was a memorable birthday. Now, I plan to wear this again, in a more curvaceous cute way – simple with a cardigan and low nude heel. Perfect for Valentine’s Day.
