>FASHION WEEK : WHAT I WORE

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Yesterday was a pretty busy day for me. I had to literally run back and forth to Lincoln Center from work just so I could check out the Joy Cioci show and the Farah Angsana show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I wanted to keep things comfortable yet chic so I reached for my leopard print dress I got as a gift from Jessica London and my tab collar leather biker jacket from Style&CO. I threw on the red suede pumps to add a pop of color. I received tons of compliments on this look and a few paparazzi shots. 
Show reviews coming this weekend.

>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.

>AT THE OFFICE IN MY STRIPED BLAZER FROM JESSICA LONDON

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It’s only Tuesday and I am already tired and slightly stressed out from work. At least I have going to Baltimore this weekend to look forward to.  The weather has done a 180 and it’s a bit chilly in NYC. I must admit that I was a little glad about it because it gave me a chance to wear my new striped blazer.
I got this blazer as a gift from Jessica London for attending their blogger conference (post to come later about that). As always I have to keep it real with you. I have never shopped at Jessica London because I thought they were for the more mature crowd who likes ribbed turtlenecks in every color in the crayon box.
I was attending the conference for another blog, but, as always, I am open minded to companies who want to make better clothes for the plus size community and understand our fashionable needs. After the conference was over, the group of bloggers who attended were told that we could order anything we wanted from the Fall catalogue. I was skeptical because once again, their past collections were not my taste or for my age group ( So, I thought). Since I’m in that age group where I am not 21 anymore but I’m not 40 either, I am very careful about the pieces I choose, because I want to look my age.
While, I do not like everything from Jessica London, I did find a couple of nice pieces (like this blazer) that I can work into my wardrobe. The stripes and side paneling of polka dots is what drew me to this blazer. When I first saw it in their catalogue, I was like no, this is not going to work, but, then I stared at it and said, why not give it a try. It reminded me of the old Ralph Lauren striped blazers.
To make it fit my style, I am wearing it with skinny black jeans, my pink gladiator sandals, and a basic v-neck tee. I chose a charm necklace to make the look a little more interesting. This weekend I am going to take the blazer to the tailor and have him take it in a little bit on the sides and in the arms for a fitted look. I will rock the blazer again with a mini pencil skirt to switch it up.
As Tim Gunn always says, sometimes you have to make things work. I rolled up the sleeves and popped the collar to add a little flavor to the blazer.
What do you guys think about the blazer?
