What To Wear: Inspired by Halloween Movie Villains!

I swear, every year people impress me with their amazing Halloween costumes. Every year I say I’m going to do a banging costume and  . . . that never happens. BUT, that doesn’t mean I can give you some FAB outfit inspiration for Halloween. This year, I decided to get inspired by scary movie villains. Plot Twist, I never watch scary movies BUT I love costume design. Below, I picked three looks inspired by Halloween’s scariest villains. Add the makeup and take these looks to the next level! Let’s get started:

Freddy’s Dead . . . Sexy!

Of course I had to start with the Iconic, Freddy Krueger! Growing up, Nightmare on Elm Street was the scariest movie you could watch . . . with the lights on. LOL! Anytime you see that iconic striped shirt, you know what it’s all about. I took Freddy’s iconic stripes to inspire you to step up your Halloween look. It’s sexy and a bit scary at the same time.

Raise Hell . . . Look Cute

The next look is another super scary villain from the 80’s . . . Hellraiser! Dude, as soon as I saw that guy with the pins in his head, I was DONE! I think I made it through about 30 minutes of the movie and I was DONE! However, doesn’t mean I can’t get inspired by Hellraiser‘s patent leather trench look and hardware inspire tortured face.

Checkin in on Chucky

Last but not least, I had to give a nod to our boy Chucky! Listen, Child’s Play was a movie I could watch because it was HILARIOUSLY scary! I mean, a doll, possessed? Laughable. But he’s iconic. I wanted to go full denim, but went with these black overalls, but kept his iconic stripped shirt, sneakers, and knife. This look is cute  . . . but you’ll be a killer! LOL! Also, can I just have these sneakers?! Right!

I Want Candy

Ok, so you know I had to do a regular-degular-schmegular look because this is definitely what I’ll be wearing this Wednesday. Hey, the Candy Lady has to look cute too.  Can I have this Louis Vuitton fanny pack tho? I swear I’ll put candy in their for the kids!

So, which look inspires you the most? Let me know in the comments section!

What to Wear: Let’s talk about WHITE BOOTS

I never thought that I’D be saying this, but, we gotta let WHITE BOOTS cook for fall/winter. Man, listen! I always thought white boots looked like majorette boots. But, lately I’ve been seeing the celebs and IG influencers rocking white boots and it’s making me think I can give them some room for the season. So, I had to go to my polyvore page to play around with looks featuring white boots. After I created these looks, I think I’m sold, you should get some white boots this year. Let’s get into it:

THE TREND: Denim on Denim for Fall

As I’ve said before, the best way to embrace fall in the south is to rock summer style in fall colors. That’s why the denim-on-denim trend works so well right now. You can layer for those brisk mornings, while prepping to look casually fine at Happy Hour. Below, I spotlight three outfits to inspire you to rock DENIM on Denim! Believe, it’s all the rage! Let’s get started:

#WhatToWear: New Year’s Eve 2016

We made moments away from a new year. Some say 2016 was horrible, but the biggest challenges make the best soldiers. Listen, we got this!! Of course I had to give you our last Outfit Inspiration post for the year. I can’t believe you guys actually let me do this for fun. LOL! Each look selected uses something already in your closet.You just have to add a couple sparkling elements then go out a have fun!

For shopping details, click the photo. It will take you to the Polyvore shopping pages.
ABOVE, I wanted to give a comfortable look yet cute look for the festivities. If you’re sensitive to heels, don’t fret, this look would be super fly with flats. This look identifies that good pair of black slacks that EVERYONE owns. Find a sparkly top and add accessories, you are on the way!
#WhatToWear: #NYE - Tux and Tailored

This next look uses that pair of SKINNY black jeans that we all own. Also, who doesn’t have a pair of black booties? Girl, pull your look together and go! Now I know everyone doesn’t have an Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo jacket, but add a sparkly jacket or shirt and get going. Or, just use a regular tuxedo style jacket – even better.

#WhatToWear: #NYE - The Golden Moment

Lastly, I know you have a black bodycon dress in the closet. Add a pair of crazy obnoxious heels and lot of glitter – get on your way. Oh yeah, stay warm my friends, it’s pretty chilly almost everywhere!

So, that’s it. Just wanted to give you some inspo for the rest of the year. Have a safe and stylish fun time this weekend.

MY STYLE: Plus-Size Homecoming Style

I shared my HBCU Homecoming outfit inspiration. But, I have to share my personal style with you. Listen, plus-size ladies love to ‘turn up’ too and we have the outfits to prove it! Of course, since I’m celebrating an HBCU Homecoming, the emphasis on FASHION is a big deal. Historically, black people have been the purveyors of style for the culture. Attending college is no different. We strive to be excellent in education and style. So when we return to celebrate being an Alumni, you know we are bringing our ‘A’ game.

Below, I share some of the looks you might see me rocking this weekend. Let’s get started:

#WhatToWear: HBCU Homecoming 2016

It’s Homecoming season and this week celebrates my college homecoming at Tennessee State University (TSU). TSU is a Historically Black College/University (HBCU). If you’ve attended an HBCU homecoming, you know it’s as much of a fashion show as it is a reunion! So, today starts my HBCU Style Series. I’m gonna share some outfit looks for the week as well as homecoming celebrations tips, and of course, plus-size style! Get ready! Let’s start with some outfit inspiration, click the pictures for shopping info.

#WhatToWear: #HBCUHOMECOMING - The Pep Rally

PEP RALLY/LUNCH WITH FRIENDS: Any good Homecoming event starts with a pep rally on the yard followed by lunch with friends! An HBCU pep rally is all about listening to the band play, stepping with your sorority sisters, and flirting with that guy who used to be in your english class. You gotta look casual and cute. This look breaks a couple fashion ‘rules’ but still looks fall fashion flirty.

#WhatToWear: #HBCUhomecoming - The Day Party

DAY PARTY PRINCESS/CONCERT CUTIE: Listen, celebrating at an HBCU homecoming is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be NON-STOP and your looks need to be on point. This Day Party/Concert look is perfectly on trend. If you don’t have a pair of thigh-high boots for the season, you losin! Pair your boots with shorts and a crop moto jacket and you are on your way.

#WhatToWear: #HBCUhomeciming - Game Day

TAILGATE ALL NIGHT:  Now, as an Alum of TSU, our team is fortunate enough to play at the Nissan stadium (where the Titans play). When we tailgate, we go ALL NIGHT! Even though this year’s game starts at 6pm, tailgaters will be on the scene at noon. You need a look that is comfortable and can transition from day to night. This casual look gets you into the game and with a quick shoe change can get you into the victory party.

#WhatToWear: #HBCUhomecoming - The After Party

PARTY TIME/DATE NIGHT: Admit it, the one that got away is still available. After sending him a message on social media, you are gonna go out on a date. This might be the one, or this might be a prelude to attending a good party. Either way, pack a black bodycon in your suitcase, add accessories as needed. This look is simple, effective, and a cool – just like you after celebrating your homecoming.

So, I hope these looks are inspirations for your weekend fab-ness. Which look would you rock? LEt me know in the comments section!
