Saturday!

Saturday is my favorite day of the week.  It is the one day of the week that I actually get to wake up without the alarm clock (a true blessing), relax and get a little me time in.  Yesterday, I went to lunch and did a little shopping at the Brooklyn Flea Market with my sister, which was a lot of fun since I've never been vintage shopping.  (Don't judge me.)  Anyway, I really enjoyed it.  It was just so cool looking at the different pieces and, of course, hanging out with my sister.

Make It Work

One of my favorite finds this summer was this tiered tie-dyed Michael Kors maxi skirt that was a steal at $30 from $100.  The only problem was that I didn't like the fit on me as a skirt (probably because it is not a plus-size), but I also didn't want to let a little thing like fit cause me to lose out on this adorable printed skirt.  So, instead, I made it work by finding another way to wear it.  I hiked it up and made it into a tube dress.  I then paired it with this American Rag crocheted sweater vest, my Lane Bryant belt, Coach purse and my Michael Kors pumps. This is a great dress/skirt because it can easily go from summer to fall.

Fall Favorites

Fall is definitely my favorite time of year.  I love the colors, especially the array of earth tones that can be found among the leaves, on the runway and in my closet.  And now that fall has official begun, according to me and the weather service, I thought it would be great to share two of the trends that I am obsessing over right now - snakeskin and florals.  Below are a few pieces that can easily be added to the curvy girl's closet.


Snakeskin:
I love bold animal prints and would gladly wear them as a focal point in my outfit.  However, some may not be as daring.  So, another great way to add this print to your wardrobe is through accessories like a great handbag, scarf or hat.  Here are a few pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe this fall.

My Bestie is Back!

My best friend is in New York!! This is a rare occasion and I am so excited because I never get to see her since she left New York (and me) to live in Florida.  I'm super glad that she is back even if it's only for a few days...after all New York isn't the same without her. Saturday night, we are going to go out and about and have a fab time looking good, but being bad.  I plan to wear this sheer zebra print poncho, my DKNY skinnies and Guess platform pumps. I'll add pops of color with my red Guess purse and yellow D&G shades.

Pretty in Print!

On Saturday night, I went out to celebrate my friend's birthday and had a fantastic time might I add.  We went to dinner at SEA, a cute Thai restaurant in the Meatpacking District. The food was decent, the service left a lot to be desired, but the company was great.
