Looks

Have I been gone forever?! I haven't done a traditional blog post in what feels forever! SO I owed you guys some looks. I've been working, I swear, so much dope stuff coming up this year. It's pretty major babes. What I did do is I took a piece from my #TheBWordxDEBSHOPS collection and styled it four different ways. I took the Mauve Bodysuit SHOP HERE and I created different looks. Check out my style video! I think I'm going to make more of these, they're super fun.


Which look do you like the most?! I love all of them! Subscribe to my youtube channel, I'm for sure going to drop more content. I'm FINALLY getting to do it, you have been asking forever!

LOOK One: Trendy Girl
So I wanted to style a super easy streetwear look that was Kylie Jenner type of trendy. Plus size women aren't offered streetwear in our sizes, most street style brands go up to a L. That's why when DEBSHOPS approached me I jumped on it. This look can be dressed up with the thigh high boots or throw on some sneakers and the look is just as rad.

#TheBWordxDEBSHOPS Nude Biker Short: DEBSHOPS
Knee High Lace Boots: Similar
Pink Denim Jacket: Forever 21+ 
Pink Lens Glasses: Forever 21
Hoop Earrings: DTLA

Look 2: Boss Babe

Can you guess my favorite color?? Can you guess my favorite color combo?? PINK AND OLIVE, to me, are like peas and carrots, they go together. To my eye, it makes both colors more eye catching. This is my I work in a cool LA office look. I would sure pair this with a bootie or a sneaker for a more chill vibe. I'm also obsessed with sunglasses so these are a must have.



#TheBWordxDEBSHOPS Mauve Bodysuit: DEBSHOPS
Camo Jacket: Curvy Sense
Olive Midi Skirt: Forever 21+
Olive Heels: DEBSHOPS (old)
Mirrored Glasses: Similar

Look 3: Brunch Babe 

This look is what I wear a lot more of the time. This jacket is my power jacket, perfect to go from brunch to meetings to the movies. Casual but still super cute and put together. Power, statement pieces go a long way. You don't need a lot of accessories, let the clothes do the talking.

Pink Trench: Simply Be
Distressed Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Pink Booties: Smash Shoes


Look 4: Dinner Date Babe

If it's ladies night or a date night, this outfit needs to go out! I found this mesh midi skirt at F21 and it perfectly matched my mauve bodysuit. I love, LOVE a monochromatic look, so it was perfect. Throw on a cute fluffy heel and we are good to go!

Bad Girls Club

SHOP COLLECTION NOW: www.debshops.com 

I have been crying, "PLUS SIZE EDITORIAL" for the last year. Don't believe me? Ask my friends. I have poured over magazines my whole life for the fantasy of the editorial, haute couture shoots and it always bothered me that plus size bodies were never shown. This is my vision. I styled, conceptualized and produced this video and set of images. THANK YOU to everyone who made it happen!

Also we need to shout out DebShops. I know you all know, I wouldn't just sign on to just anything. Unless a company really gets me and supports, not only myself but the plus community, we aren't working together. DebsShops has been incredible, beyond any of my expectations! Our first meeting we sat down and they're like what do YOU want. YOU being a plus size women who has been begging for bad bitch clothing for years. We came with some bad bitch clothing for us all!! 

Can't wait to see what you all think babes! This is for all of us ++
