Fall doesn’t begin for another month but I can’t help but start to dabble into Fall fashions. After all, it’s all over the stores anyway so it’s almost impossible to stay away. Since the temperatures are still warm, I have to get a little creative with blending the seasons fashions so I decided to pair this olive green mini dress with one of my favorite pair of booties and a wool hat to complete the look. The colors definitely channel Fall foliage and the earthy tones of leaves while the shorter hemline of the dress makes it suitable for Summer. Mission accomplished!

Summer is winding down and the weather is starting to cool off. With that comes a whole new wave of fashion to suit the Fall and Winter seasons. In my last post, I spoke a little bit about transitioning from Summer to Fall and how the outfit that I was wearing could be suitable for that in between phase. I’m a firm believer that with proper styling, your wardrobe can be transformed from season to season without spending tons of money and essentially swapping out your entire closet. Of course, you will need a few additional pieces but with a little bit of creativity and determination, it can be done.

This skirt from Pink Clubwear reminds me of summery days. With a cute crop top and stylish sandals, I’d be ready for an afternoon stroll on the beach. However, I wanted to go for a different look and one that better represented the time of year so I decided to pair it with a black draped top, to match the ruched detail on the skirt, and gold and black accessories. I love the rich color and the twist knot in the front. Also, any type of draping or gathering I am immediately drawn to as it creates the perfect compliment for curves.

Let’s start our transition ladies! More outfit ideas to come.

Recently, I teamed up with Fashion to Figure for the launch of their new blog, FTF Style. In addition to the fabulous fashion, beauty and lifestyle posts throughout the blog, there is also a segment called “Tips for Dressing Your Body Type” of which I was apart of. Fashion to Figure chose 3 bloggers (On The Q Train, Ravings by Rae & myself) with 3 different body types to select and style items from their line that flatter their frames the best. Each blogger then explains why it works and what they love about those particular items. This look is one of three outfits that I selected for the feature and it is one of my favorites. I love a good casual outfit but at the same time, I like to look put together as well. A staple for any wardrobe is a pair of well fitting jeans as they can make any outfit instantly polished. These FTF jeans combine comfort and style and paired with a breezy, chiffon top such as this, it’s perfect for a Saturday hanging out with your girlfriends. And you can never go wrong with red and animal print so I had to add in a pop of color with this Fashion to Figure satchel. Casual chic at its finest!

I had such a good time at the Grand Opening of Wet Seal+ at the Westside Pavilion. They sure do know how to throw a party!

There were so many great styles and fashions that I could hardly keep myself from thumbing through the racks and trying things on. Here’s a quick recap of this fabulous event!

First off, let me just say that I have some exciting news to share but like all good things, let’s save the best for last.

Now let’s talk about this outfit. Black and white with gold accents…how could you go wrong with that? There’s something just so crisp and chic about a classic black and white look. It never goes out of style no matter how much time passes. As we get closer to the end of summer, I’m starting to transition my wardrobe for the Fall season. Even though in southern California we don’t exactly have distinct seasons, Fall is my favorite time of year when it comes to fashion. This look is a great “in-betweener”: light enough for warm weather but with a coat or blazer and some pumps, it can easily be suitable for Fall. Also the plaid prints were very popular last year and I predict that it will be again this year. Although this is a muted plaid as opposed to a tartan, it is still very on trend.

My outfit is almost entirely from Wet Seal (ok we are getting closer to the exciting news). You may or may not already be aware but Wet Seal has launched a line exclusively for plus sizes. Following the same styles as the straight size clothing, Wet Seal+ offers contemporary and fashionable apparel for us curvy women. In many instances, major retailers that branch out and do plus size lines often offer minimal (if any) plus size selections in store, forcing us to shop online. Wet Seal+, on the other hand, is not one of those retailers (ok here comes the good news!). On August 16th, Wet Seal+ will be opening 30 new stores across the country! That’s right, these are stand-alone stores exclusively for sizes 14-24. No longer will you have to search through a singular rack in the back of a store, but you will have an entire location dedicated to full figured shoppers. Check out the stores opening near you!

For all of my Los Angeles fashionistas, come meet me at the Grand Opening of Wet Seal+ at the Westside Pavilion! From 4pm – 6pm, I will be helping to get the party started with hourly gift card giveaways, styling tips, an Instagram selfie booth & so much more! Details below. See you there!
