>GRAY AND CLOUDY DAYS PLEASE GO AWAY!

>

It’s still cloudy and snowy in NYC and I’m ready to scream. Winter is definitely not my season. It’s amazing how weather can really affect your mood. Sometimes when the weather is groggy, cold, and uninspiring I began to feel the same way. The only thing that makes me feel happy or that sunny days are ahead is when I look at bright colors. That’s why I always buy outerwear accessories in bright colors. From gloves to hats. I love my bright blue leather gloves because they remind me of the old school candy “Now and Later.” Don’t ask me why, but they just do. This year I have become a fan of turbans and I found this super cute pink turban from ASOS.

This year I have become a fan of turbans and I found this super cute pink turban from ASOS.

Just looking at the pink turban and blue gloves changes my gray groggy winter mood to a happy one. Speaking of gray, I scored the gray coat that I’ve been eyeing from ASOS for awhile. I find it difficult sometimes to judge how ASOS clothes will fit because the clothes just hang on their models. So, I wasn’t sure how the coat was going to fit. I wanted a gray coat this winter because I wanted to break up my collection of brightly colored coats. Sometimes a girl just needs a simple coat with great details. What drew me to this coat was details like the structured puffed shoulder, funnel neck collar, and twin epaulettes.

 
I do love the warmth of the coat and how the funnel neck collar swallows you up like a warm blanket. I’ll admit that the double breasted silhouette does make my boobs look bigger, but, I’m okay with that because news flash, I have big boobs. I also like that the bottom of the coat flares out and creates a slight pleated effect from behind.

Well, I think I’m done complaining about the winter for now, so, I hope you guys are having a great day and staying warm and stylish in this crazy weather.

>SKINNY GIRL FASHION FOR YOUR CURVES

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Looking for a new winter coat? Well, take a few notes from Halle Berry. She was spotted outside the Good Morning America Studios looking super warm and chic in a gray high neck tie waist wool coat. For many of us we like coats in bright colors for the winter, but, a black or gray coat can be a standout with just the right details.We love how Halle”s coat has a high neck and buttons on the side. The tie waist shows off Halle’s waist and breaks up the bulkiness of the coat.
Get a similar look for your curves with this uber chic wool coat from ASOS Curve. We like that this ASOS Curve coat has some interesting details like the funnel neckline with twin epaulettes and structured pleated shoulder. This is the perfect coat to make you look chic and warm for the colder months. Plus, your friends will be glad that you gave that bright red coat a rest.
As SC always say, curvy girls can look just as good as the slim girls do.

Get the look!

>LEOPARD PRINT MEETS CRIMSON RED

>

I’m the kind of shopper who utilizes the wishlist on websites. I like to save my favorite items just in case I come into some extra cash. A few weeks ago, I was the crazy online shopper due to coming into some extra cash. I’m wearing 3 of the items that I had on my wishlist. One of the items on my wishlist was this leopard print faux fur from Torrid. I’ll admit, i didn’t like how it looked online, but, I ordered it anyway because I figured it would probably look different in person. When I opened the box, I was taken back a little bit because I thought the coat was too loud, but, after staring at it for a few days it started to grow on me. I love how sassy and over the top it looks with my skinny jeans. It’s definitely a coat I would wear when I want to standout from the crowd.

The second piece I bought was this crimson red lace trim dress from ASOS.  I had been coveting this dress for sometime now waiting for it to go on sale. It never did. So, I decided to just get it. I debuted it at the Redress Indie Plus show and received so many compliments on it. What drew me to the dress was the detailing. From reading my blog and seeing my outfit posts, you know I am a sucker for details. I was intrigued by the combination of the pleated waist with the lace trimming on the neckline and waist. The clothes on ASOS models are always too big for the models, so, sometimes it’s hard to decipher how something will fit. I wasn’t sure what size to get in the dress, so, I went one size up.

The 3rd item I purchased was these above the knee ruched suede boots from Piperlime. I received a $15 b’day coupon and thought, what better way to use the coupon than on shoes. I liked the ruched detailing on the boots and thought they were quite sexy.

I still have tons of items on countless wishlists, but, since Christmas is coming up, I will have to keep those items on my personal wishlist and work on getting items for friends and family before Christmas.

I had a summer social cocktail party to go to this week and I chose to rock this water colored flower print dress I got from ASOS. I was immediately attracted to it because of all the pretty bright colors. When I got the invite to the party, I just knew this dress was the perfect choice for the event. It has a pleated tulip style bottom with a criss cross sweetheart neckline. I felt super girlie in it.

>MY ASOS DRESS

>


This weekend I received my ASOS Curve dress in the mail. I was so excited to get it, because I was looking for a new black dress to wear to work. All of the black dresses I have are made of jersey material, so, I wanted something with a little more structure. Since I work down on Wall street, I like to keep things structured and corporate.

When I tried the dress on, it fit great and the little puff sleeves actually stood up and didn’t sag. The material was light and soft with a hint of stretch. Since this was my first time buying something from ASOS I was a little skeptical. So many times have I ordered something that looks great online and it disappoints in person. This was not the case with this dress. It looked the same and moved the same as it did on the model. This week I will be ordering more pieces.
