LakeSide with my Wrap Dress

Since my cousin is in town from the ATL I decided to have a small gathering at Lake Merritt in Oakland with my friends. When sitting lakeside I always wear something lite and this Who What Wear Collection Target’s Ruffle Wrap Dress fits me perfectly.

The light blue and white stripes wraps around you creating a tide knot in the front of the dress. The fit runs a little big, I got a 3X in the dress but could have sized down to a 2X. The best part of this dress is the sleeves and the high low effect! I don’t like the small snap button near the chest area because it keeps unsnapping, I just put a safety pin to hold it in place. I paired my outfit with a purse and shades from the flea market. Then I grabbed my Ross flowers and bucket filled with my good food and wine.

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


“Color Binding”~AVA & VIV Skirt


When I use to wear a skirt below my knee it meant you were going to church, but nowadays it’s a trendier chic look.  This is what we call a Midi Skirt.  Midi Skirts are below the knee, about the knee, or a pencil like skirt.  Usually it fits tight and form fitting, but can be a flare skirt too.  I have fallen in love with midi skirts especially the form fitting and flare looks.

This past Labor Day weekend, I had a BBQ at Lake Merritt in Oakland with some of my friends.  It was such great weather and I had to bring out my cute AVA&VIV skirt, which I call my “color binding midi skirt”. The skirt is a midrise patterned print.  This skirt comes in sizes 14W-26W. I’m wearing a size 20W, which is a good fit.  It’s very comfortable and has a zipper in the back of it.  It could be worn to work, a day of shopping, a date, or just an everyday look.  I paired it was a white tee and my Lane Bryant denim jacket (this item is completely sold out), threw on some accessories from one of the San Fran’s street vendors and my flats from Nordstrom Rack.




I truly was BBQ ready and felt so comfortable.  Hope you loved my “color binding midi skirt” outfit as much as I did.  Remember that Plus Size and Curvaceous women are TOP of the line, nothing less, ALWAYS 2SNAPS to that!
