As women we all know that with a new body comes a new style. Ugly Betty star America Ferrera has adopted a new look to match her newly slimmer yet still curvy shape. SC loves America’s new style because of its versatility. Her choice of dresses are chic enough for work and sexy enough for evening. America is a big fan of Catherine Malandrino who is known for making feminine dresses that show off a woman’s shape. We love that America goes for classic dresses with special details like a pleated waist or draping around the hips. Every curvy girl can take a few notes from America’s style and SC has hooked you up with 6 super chic dresses to help you incorporate a little bit of America Ferrera’s style into your wardrobe.
1. Plus SIze Fix Brocade Dress $42.99, sizes 1X-3X
6. ASOS Curve Frill Sleeve Tunic Dress  $64.03, sizes16-22



In continuation with SC’s denim series I wanted to share with you this month’s magazine feature which comes from Essence.
I have four favorite stylist’s and Lloyd Boston is one of my faves. In the August issue of Essence he helps a few women with different body types find the right pair of jeans for their bodies. One of the women is plus size super model Mia Amber Davis. I know there are a few curvy girls who don’t like to be given advice on how to dress their curves, but, I don’t think there is anything wrong with taking heed to a few tips.
Lloyd helps model/actress Amber find jeans that fit her ample booty without showing her crack (Sorry! No other way to say this). He also helps model Sharail find a pair of jeans that fit her waist and offers tummy control.
Mia is wearing CJ by Cookie Johnson’s Faith Straight Leg jean and Sharail is wearing Not Your Daughters Marilyn Jean.
A few months back I did a post on CJ by Cookie Johnson jeans and at that time they only went up to a size 16/18. Now they have added a plus line.
Checkout more CJ looks. You can purchase CJ by Cookie Johnson at Bloomingdales
Not Your Daughter’s jeans has also stepped up their wash game and fit. The styles have been updated and are worth checking out. They can also be purchased at Bloomingdales

All jeans average about $150.

It looks like Gabourey Sidibe is back on the red carpet’s again. This week she was spotted at the Manhattan center in NYC wearing a floral printed IGIGI dress. While I think the dress looks nice on her, but, the style makes her look a bit older or shall I say mature. I am not feeling the shrug over it. The colors are noticeably different and the shrug does not compliment the dress at all.  
The dream of poppies dress retails for $108 at IGIGI if you’re interested in purchasing.



Since August is the start of back to school shopping, I thought about what is the first thing girls buy when it comes to school shopping. During my school days, the first thing I went for were a pair of great jeans. Which made me come up with the title “If I were A Student In The 70’s” because the 70’s were the best era for jeans.
If I were a student in the 70’s I think this outfit would be something that I would have worn during that era. The 70’s is one of my favorite decades. The music, the clothes, the politics. Everything about that era was just inspiring. I got this top from my favorite resale store in Brooklyn, which is ReDress NYC. I was immediately drawn to the pattern.

I love the vintage look it gives so I decided to go the extra mile and wear it with a pair of wide leg trouser jeans that I bought from Torrid last year. I added some purple chandelier style earrings and a cuff bracelet. After putting everything together all I could think was that it looked like something from the 70’s. All I needed was an afro.
All I was missing from this look was an extra platform on my shoes with a real fish swimming around, lol.

I have always been a fan of fashion editor/socialite/TV personality/business woman Miss Bevy Smith. If you are not familiar with Bevy then you need to Google her ASAP.  This curvy celebrity is the former Fashion Editor at Large for Vibe magazine and currently she runs her own business where she brings together the best in entertainment through her famous dinner parties called Dinner with Bevy.

What I love about Bevy’s style is that it’s always chic. You will always find her in a banging dress in an eye catching print or color. It seems that wrap dresses are her favorite along with sexy sky high heels. Most importantly Bevy wears her curves well, she always manages to keep her girls on display in a flattering unhidden way. I’m sure her shapely frame has men tripping all over themselves when she passes them on the street. Bevy’s personality and confidence is mesmerizing, she exudes sexiness and is not afraid to show off her shape.

If you identify with Bevy Smiths body type here are a few notes you should be taking from her looks

1. Fitted/ body con dresses show off your curves
2. Utilize a belt to create or enhance curves
3. Be sure to invest in V-necks to display your ample bossom is a classy and chic way
4. Don’t be afraid of prints that make you standout in a crowd
