I had to pop in to let you know that today, July 29, 2017, is NATIONAL LIPSTICK DAY! Listen, I don’t know who comes up with the fun holidays, but I’m here for celebration. Apparently, so is MAC cosmetics! In celebration of #NationalLipstickDay, MAC is giving away a FREE full size lipstick to any customer who comes in the store, no purchase necessary! (while supplies last, participating stores only)
I love a good lipstick! Sometimes that’s all you need to make your day a bit brighter! You better RUN to your nearest MAC counter and get you a good one! Let me know which is your favorite lipstick, in the comments section.

When I saw these platform mules from Strategia, I knew I had to create a look! These mules are giving me UPDATED late 90’s vibes and I am HERE for it. I love a shoe that can give you a bit of height, but still be comfortable. So, I came up with this cute summer look to inspire you to run your errands in style!
I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS end up running into someone I know (or someone I want to know better) when I’m looking busted and disgusted. So, I’ve been trying to make an effort to look a bit cuter when I’m out & about. I’m going to take my own advice, and find a similar look like the one above. You know I’ll post OOTD’s on my IG and on the blog!
‘I Love GOLD’, this look is all about a girl who love attention!
Right on time for this four day weekend, I had to give you some Summer Vacation outfit inspiration. I usually do a Fourth of July post, with a ‘red, white, and blue’ theme but I thought, “How cliche!” No fashionista I know would be THAT corny, but we do love adding elelments of the holiday in our otherwise cute looks. So, I decided to give you some non-traditional summer looks for your vacations and extended weekend trips.
This first look is casual and chic. I tried hate on the sudden Gucci love, but I LOVE these GG Marmont purses. I wanted show how you can rock a luxury bag with chill laid back accessories. And, y’all know how I love a New York Yankees fitted! I just think this look is so fly and fab.
Maybe this post should be called, “I tried not to like it, but now I do” – LOL! But I tried not to fall into the whole ‘rose gold’ and ‘blush pink’ vibe, but it looks SO good! I pulled these pieces for a cute summer Date Night look and/or girls night out event. And yes, it’s another Gucci bag! But DOGGONE IT their PR company must be working overtime because I’m in love! Oh yeah, get into denim skirts, they are the JAM!
This last look is for the pool. Well, brunch, then the pool. I’m loving the trend of embellished flats for the summer. Finally, we can take off the heels and still look cute. I’m telling you, get a pair of cute flats/slides, your feet will thank you.
So, I hope these outfits will help you look great this summer. Let me know how you will be spending your summer vacation.
Did you know that there’s a style subscription service for PLUS-SIZE ladies? YES, it’s called Dia & Co! Let’s talk about it!
Personally, I love going shopping at the mall and trying on clothes, but I know so many women HATE IT! Plus-Size or not, there’s nothing worse than shopping all day and coming home with NOTHING! Dia & Co, takes the work out of shopping and allows you to be stylish!
This is a subscription service that allows YOU to try on looks at home. When you sign-up for Dia & Co, you’ll take a SHORT questionnaire that will identify your style. An online stylist will assemble your box and ship it to you right away! You can receive new boxes every two-three weeks, once a month, or every other month. Keep only the pieces you like, send back what you don’t. SIMPLE!
Another great thing about the Dia & Co website is the amazing lookbooks that help customers navigate new trends. Using inspiration from the Dia & Co lookbooks, I decided to take on this SPRING denim trend. Keeping it simple, I paired these distressed jeans from River Island with a simple white t-shirt and pastel jacket. Add some gold jewelry and you are ready to go!
Dia & Co has pieces similar to those shown above, plus many more. Customers can choose to have accessories added to their subscription box too. Did I mention, they go up to a size 32 and often send you pieces from TOP plus-size retailers. This is a good deal!
Let me know if you’ve tried Dia & Co, comment below. Also, what other style subscriptions do you use? Let’s talk about it!
It’s that time of year, it’s GRADUATION TIME! Congratulations to all the graduates! You did your best (or you barely made it) either way, you are walking across that stage! Of course, I have some style inspiration for those of you asking, ‘What to Wear’ to the ceremony! As a personal stylist (hire me) I believe in planning your day, dressing for the occasion, and staying comfortable as you stay chic!
So, here are my TOP TIPS for Graduation Day Style. Of course, click any photo for shopping links. Let’s get started:
Please steam your cap & gown before the big day. Nothing is worse that taking photos with those package wrinkles jacking up your style!
Make sure your dress or skirt IS NOT longer than your graduation gown. During the ceremony, you want the focus to be on your cap & gown.
For the ceremony, wear BLACK, closed toe pumps with your cap and gown. I know, sounds boring, BUT you’ll thank me when you get your photos back. It just looks more professional and perfect for the occasion. If you don’t wear black, stick to CLOSED TOE shoes, not sandals.
Speaking of shoes, make sure you know WHERE the ceremony is taking place. Inside ceremonies are great because you can wear any type of heal you’d like. Outside affairs call for a block or a wedge heel so you won’t sink into the soil. Remember, you can change you shoes when at the restaurant!
Now it’s time to show them your LOOK! Once you take the gown off for your party or family meal, it’s time to show them your style. You’ll see three looks I’ve selected are all about simple style, great for photos, and comfortable to wear all day.
Short sleeves under your gown will help you stay super cool during the uber-long ceremonies (why can’t they just call YOUR name already!).
I’m such a fan of a great circle skirt! If you follow me on the socials, you know I’m a skirt fanatic! This look is great for our prim & proper grads. Add this trendy and convenient Fujifilm Instax Mini camera to document the day. Don’t leave the photos in your cell phone! LOL!
This look is for our artistic grads! Who said you can’t wear pants to graduation. I love these fancy-pants and fun shoes. This look takes you from graduation, to family dinner, to the night out with your friends!
I love these looks for the stage or for a day out with friends. Need some help finding your Graduation Day style, hire me as your personal stylist for the day. I’ll have you looking fly.
