“Mama Africa”

Strong, determined, stylish, intelligent, warrior, struggle, and a survivor all come to my mind when I think about “Mama Africa”.

I’ve been looking for an African print skirt and so happy that I found one that I was able to try on in person. When I went to LA a few months ago I stop by the Slauson Super Mall (LA’s Swapmeet) and came across a Ghanaian shop called African Fashion (Booth #F18) that sells everything! I couldn’t pass up a $40 deal. The fit of the skirt is great, plus it has a lining underneath which holds me in and POCKETS! Yassss.

Braided Up × Swimsuits For All’s Gabi Fresh Collection

 This is the perfect swimwear outfit to feel sexy but covered and be able to go swimming in the entire floral print. 

Last weekend I went to Raging Waters in San Jose and was able to relax in the lazy river, fun tube slides, and jump through all the waves in the wave pool. The material is the best thing about this collection because when you wear this Swimsuit for all Gabi Fresh’s Queen of Bikini swimwear in the water it drys right away. Yay! And 2Snaps to that.

I wore the two piece purple bikini with the cover up. This is from last year’s collection but there are plenty of options with Gabi Fresh’s new collection. The bottoms are in a size 24, top is 18 E/F and the cover up is a 22/24. 

In addition to me pulling this swimwear out of the closet… Peaches, my hair stylist got me to step out the box and created a different style for me. The braids are cornrolled on roll in the front and individuals in the back, took a long time but worth the wait!

Remember that Plus Size and Curvaceous women are Top of the line and Nothing less Always 2SNAPS to that!

Fancydime’s Friday Night

IMG_0090 (1)

Just another Fancydime Friday! This week has been very long so it’s time for me to take myself to Happy Hour.  I woke up this morning and put on this sexy but work friendly black dress to run errands in and meet up with my friends later to get drinks.  This dress is from Ideel (I believe it’s sold out, but they have many other options).  It is very comfortable, the material is mesh like.  The dress is sheer but has a slip under it.  I am wearing a size 3X and spanx panties with this, just to hold everything in.  I think every gal needs a pair no matter what size.  I simply paired this all black dress with my heels from ROSS (similar from DSW) and some San Fran street jewelry. It’s always great to get a bargin and support street vendors.  Everyone needs a black dress in their closet especially one you can wear to work all the way to happy hour.

I  hope you have a beautiful weekend.  Remember that Curvaceous and Plus Size Women are TOP of the line and nothing less, Always, 2SNAPS to that!
