smoke & mirrors

POSTED IN: personal style

As you all very well know I typically stray away from shapeless items in an effort to not look like a sack of laundry. But sometimes body-con is just too fussy. The tugging, adjusting and squeezing doesn’t work for the Carefree Black Girl vibes I’m trying to embody. So here’s a comfortable, carefree look for a comfortable, carefree night out.

Pink is the Flavor

POSTED IN: personal style

When I got this skirt three years ago I swore up and down I was going to get it cut shorter but honestly with the abundance of skater skirts on the market there’s no need. (Side Note: Just to think three years ago I was crying and whining about the lack of short skater skirts in the plus size market… Maybe in another three years there’ll be structure, too much? D’accord) I love the silhouette this shirt has. It automatically makes me think of the fifties so I piggy backed off that for this look. I was every but of a lady with the red lip, cat-eyes and lace. The jacket adds a bit of hardness to the other wise very feminine look.

I Hope I Do It For You

POSTED IN: personal style

I know it’s been eons since I last updated and I have no excuse other than the fact that it was cold. Actually, I think that’s a pretty damn good excuse. Any who, I snapped these pictures the other day and although I don’t love them I figured I would post them here (mainly because I’ve been getting cursed out). The look is pretty simple and the silhouette is one of my favorites.

Thoughts?

P.S, I promise I won’t stay away for that long any more.

Escaping January

POSTED IN: life, personal style

Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I took a much need mini vacation to California a few days ago. Because I’m dramatic and I missed my friends I decided to fly my ass to LA to see a friend and then to San Francisco to hang with my soulmate for a day. The fact that I escaped single digit temperatures made my trip well worth it. I was able to snap a few bland pictures while there. The looks are nothing special but since I haven’t posted in a while (because it’s cold a fuck outside) I decided to share.

Thoughts?

F*ckwithmeyouknowigotit

POSTED IN: personal style

For as long as I could remember I’ve wanted a cheetah printed fur. So when I saw this one of Torrid I didn’t hesitate on buying it. The fact that it was only thirty bucks at the time was a big factor too. The shirt is from the main range of ASOS and it is perfect. Also, can we discuss the fact that I can fit ASOS jeans?! I’m never taking them off. A simple beanie and my new favorite booties from Shoemint complete this look.
