It’s time to shop . . . my closet! When you are a lifestyle and fashion blogger, you start to gain LOTS of clothes and accessories. Some items, I fall in love with IMMEDIATELY and I keep them forever. But some items, although cute, never make it to another wear. Happens to the best of us. So, it’s time to clean out my closet.
On September 16th, Ashley Stewart will select it’s newest campaign model! Last month, I got to be a judge in the Finding Ashley Stewart Model Search here in Nashville. More than 100 ladies from Nashville and surrounding cities strutted their stuff in Green Hills Galleria. We selected two amazing ladies to represent Nashville, Saaneah and Theresa.
The finalists will be awarded a one year contract to model for Ashley Stewart clothing stores. And, there’s talks that Ashley Stewart will return to Nashville in 2018! You know I’ll keep you posted. So, take a look at the VLOG below and see all the beautiful plus-size women show their beautiful selves on the runway!
Y’all! Y’all! Y’all! Go see Odysseo – Cavalia! I have to admit, when I was contacted by the Odysseo team, I wasn’t too hype to see the ‘fancy horse show’. If you live in Nashville, you’ve seen the, almost, cryptic banners, posters, signs, billboards, and yard signs, telling you that Odysseo by Cavalia is the ‘GREATEST show you’ll ever see’. Seriously, I was over it. But then . . . GIRL, I saw the show! It IS THE GREATEST SHOW YOU’LL EVER SEE! Let’s talk about it!

I was really in my feelings about not attending New York Fashion Week this September! But I had to take those lowkey jealous feelings and turn them into something creative. So, I decided to check out some of my favorite NYFW street-style photogs and be inspired by fly fall style. NYFW (or any fashion week) is the perfect time to take a chance with fashion. Push the limit a bit, try something you’ve never tried, and add some FAB to your confidence. Get inspired by the looks below:
We are in that wacky time between summer and fall. In fashion, we call this pre-fall. In my closet, we call this WAR! Living in Tennessee, but being from Massachusetts, I’m always at war with my fall sensibilities. I’m the person who is happy that Pumpkin Spice is back, ready to wear all the layers, and waiting for the first bonfire invite. But, even I know that we won’t get those TRUE fall temperatures until late October, maybe even November. Sigh.
That’s why, when I was contacted by Simply Be to review some of their plus-size looks, I was excited. Simply Be has an EXPANSIVE collection of items. Like, dude, theirs 100’s of looks! Their range of sizes are from 8-28, which is AWESOME! Also, their comment section, under each item, is very informative. The shoppers do a good job of sharing if an item worked for them, it’s quality, and value.
Below, I share the three pieces I received from Simply Be. This is a sponsored post, but I’m gonna keep it ALL the way real with you. I hate to waste money, and I’d hate you to waste money too. Lets get it:
I almost forgot to post last week’s VLOG! My goal is to give you a new video every week. I love sharing parts of my life with you and living in Nashville as well. You know, because Nashville is POPPING right now. Anyway, this week’s VLOG documents me going to the Urban Soul CafeAll-White Worship Experience and attending the Jefferson Street Art Crawl.
I’ve been blogging for like 17 million years, so I have about 49,000 posts about Wearing White After Labor Day. So, when I realized I hadn’t worn this CUTE dress from Ashley Stewart, it inspired me to write about the topic again. So, are we or are we NOT wearing white after Labor Day? Let’s discuss.
Dude! Month NINE! September already! Wow! The older we get, the faster it goes. I went HARD this summer with #ShowYourArms and #NashvilleCurves, so it’s time for me to go underground; we got some projects for the holidays!
Y’all already know that I am READY to rock-steady with fall 2017, I already started my Pinterest board. So, what’s happening on FabGlance this month? Well, it’s gonna be a chill month, no lie. I have to appear at some events coming up – so you’ll get lots of VLOGS! Better be following me on YouTube. Of course, there’s a couple brand collabs coming this month because I love telling you guys about new stuff.
I’m sure we’ve all read the horrible stories of our friends recovering from the Hurricane Harvey and it’s horrible floods. The loss of life, luxury, and living space is one that no one can imagine until you experience it. Back in 2010, Nashville experienced a horrible flood too; nothing like the one in Houston but bad enough. So, I remember what it felt like to watch my friend receive help from charities.
I wasn’t affected by the floods, but I was able to lend a hand. I remember donating money to my favorite charity, the Salvation Army, and I started a diaper drive at my church. Although, I’m not in Houston, I couldn’t watch the news reports and read the social media timelines without offering my help.
Below, I’ve listed several TRUSTWORTHY scam-free charities (that aren’t the Red Cross) that are on the ground helping the people of Houston. From diaper drives, clothing drive, and places to donate money, the list below has been compiled with care in hopes that you’d share a bit of the coins in your stylish purse.
Convoy of Hope – This organization has their feet on the ground. The money you send is going STRAIGHT to the residents of Houston. One of my fave charities.
Texas Diaper Bank – This organization collects diapers, formula, and educational essential that are often looked over during tragic situations. The link goes straight to the organization’s amazon wish list. So you see EXACTLY where your money is going.
The Greater Houston Community Fund – Set in Houston, this organization has been involved in the community for several years and have already started delivery funds to communities in the area.
Houston Humane Society – We can’t forget the pets! The Houston Humane Society has published their wish list for the 1000’s of pets found after the hurricane. You can send a monetary donation to help the shelter stay open and help the fur-babies.
Texas Children’s Hospital – Although most hospitals are up-and-running after Hurricane Harvey many need lots of supplies and funds to pay staff. The children’s hospital is looking for donations to help young people who were injured during the floods.
Just like I did my googles, you can do yours too. But, these are the trusted sites for making sure you funds go straight to the victims. Remember, if you don’t have the money to give today, the residents of Houston will need TONS of help in the months to come. Budget your funds, maybe send a couple bucks a month to help your favorite charities.
