>LEATHER AND LACE

>

It has truly been a long week and the weekend just started. I decided to go out and get some drinks Friday with a friend. Since it was a bit chilly outside, I thought it would be the perfect time to breakout my biker jacket. I threw it on over a sheer top and with my pale pink lace skirt. I also put on my over the knee boots but pushed them down for more of a scrunched look. I love big dressy earrings so I added my black and silver chandelier earrings.
I love all the zippers on this leather biker jacket and the toughness makes me feel like a little bad ass. I bought this lace skirt this summer and just adore how much it works with other things in my wardrobe. I’m also wearing my fuchsia lipstick from MAC called, “Girl About Town.” I only wear it at night because it’s a little bright. I didn’t like how the lipstick looked on its own so I put gloss over it.

>FIVE PANT TRENDS EVERY CURVY GIRL SHOULD TRY

>

Hey curvy girls:
Have you ever found yourself saying this, “That won’t look right on me.” At one time or another we have all been discouraged to participate in fashion trends due to the model in the ad. She is slim and the article of clothing just drapes her body like she was a tall hanger. You think to yourself, oh, I can’t wear that. My hips are too big, my butt is too big, or, you say, that’s for skinny people. I have been an offender of using these lines when shopping, but, I always stop myself and say, just try it on, you never know. Forget the tall blonde hanger in the ad.
Last week Loft unveiled advertisement for their new silk cargos (tall blonde hanger included) and Facebook fans wrote in asking the retailer to show pictures of real bodies rocking the silk cargos. Loft accepted the challenge and emerged victoriously with photos of their employees, sizes 2-12 wearing the slim looking silk cargos according to their personal styles and fans loved it. This goes to show that women want to see more ads with bodies that they can relate to.
This spring/summer season, the hottest pants to wear are cropped cargos, pleated harem pants, and slouchy jogging pants. Below are a few of these trendy pants that I think every curvy girl should try and not dismiss. 
Not sure how to style these quirky looks? A blazer and gladiator sandals will give these pants a polished look.

>OOTD: AT THE OFFICE IN LOFT

Hey curvy girls,
It’s been a long and exhausting week. However, I am so excited about next week because it will be Stylish Curve’s 1 year anniversary. I have so many ideas for this blog which I will sahare with you all at a later date.  For those of you who are still sketchy about Loft (formerly known as Ann Taylor Loft) I just wanted to share this dress I bought from their 40% off sale about a week ago. What drew me to the dress was the draping and the design at the top of the dress, plus, it had pockets (which I love). Yes, it may be a little simple for those of you who like more edgier looks, but, it was something about it that I just thought was so cute and casual. When I put it on, the jersey material was so soft and comfy. It felt more like lounge wear. I will say that I need to take the top part in because it is a little too big. I had to keep pulling it up. My bottom half is the largest part on me so, I try to fit that first and tailor the rest (future post on tailoring). Other than that it was perfect.

Last year, I bought this little bomber jacket from Loft and I thought it would be a nice youthful touch to the dress. To make the look more interesting, I added a pair of leopard print Michael Kors (2nd fave designer) pumps that I scored on Ebay for $30 and only worn once (so they say). I promise to put the necklace to rest and shop for other necklaces (this Logo necklace has saved me so much money) to add to my jewelry wardrobe. Now, I have an addiction to this Loft cuff bracelet. You will see this again.
Oh, and Loft is offering 40% off sale items in store and online as of today. In case you like the dress too they still have it and they have other colors.

Please note: The Loft dress and jacket were all purchased with my hard earned money. However, Loft did gift to me the cuff bracelet. I am a true fan of Loft and do not receive anything for promoting them on this blog.
