My Legs Are My New Obsession

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

It's so easy to get caught up on the things we wish to change about ourselves that it begins to overshadow the things we should love about ourselves. Women have so much maintenance to keep up with from Hair, skincare, manicures, pedicures, gym and the list goes on. That they don't get to really focus on the beautiful attributes that god has blessed them with. In my journey of self acceptance I've learn to express my personality through clothing. For years I wouldn't wear certain clothing because of my body , but I realized that my confidence grew as I start shedding layers of clothing I love to look sexy at the appropriate time. It starts by  learning what compliments your body and what doesn't compliments your body. Being a plus size doesn't mean you can wear everything that everyone else wears it means wear what works for you. Every woman carries her weight differently and  in my case I carry my weight in the lower part of my stomach. I find that wearing a pair of high waisted loose fitting pants and a form fitting top gives me the ability to show my mid drift area without looking unflattering.  Another way I enjoy to style my items is wearing a over sized Jacket, or blazer with a form fitting skirt.  I love to show off my legs and my mid drift area I just think is SUPER sexy and It shows that I'm confident in my skin so please don't *TRY IT*. On this particular post I decided to rock my army jacket from Simply be, a neon yellow body con skirt from Forever21 with some sexy lace up shoes. After reviewing all the pictures I couldn't help but to notice how sexy my legs were. I was amazed because this is something that really boost my confidence because I don't do any leg exercise or anything. After posting the pictures of Instagram and receiving so much positive feed back over 500 likes and 30 comments I felt amazing. It showed me to embrace what god has blessed me with and work on the things I want to change. Not that I don't already but every now and then I'm doubtful. I encourage of my viewers to find one thing you love about yourself and leave it in a comment below. Whether it be your hair, your smile, your face structure, your eyes just share with me. I challenge you to ask friends and family member as well "What is one thing you love about yourself that gives you that extra confidence.

DIY Tube Top.. How To Style Ankle Trousers

Thursday, April 18, 2013
As a fashion blogger my goal is to be able to showcase a variety of pieces and not only cater to one type of clothing. We all have things we normally wouldn't wear but why not...Lets start to do the unusual.

I had these white trousers for over a year and I wore them one time to an event with my mom. The event was basically for older people so I knew that I had to dress Conservative. I wasn't really feeling the pants at first but after going through my spring and summer wardrobe I came across these pants, and I was thinking of a way that I can style these pants for a beautiful spring day. I love the fit of the pants they have a great strtetch and the slim ankle just expose the curves of the body.

Now that I'm teaching myself how to sew the ability to make a quick top within in 10 mins is AWESOME. I had some left over material from  a project I did a couple of days before so I figured why not use my creative talent to make a fabulous top to go along with my pants. Since the pants are already a neutral color I wanted to add some jazz to my outfit so I choose to add some pops of color and some print.

 I choose to add a bright pink blazer, a poka dot tube top, and turquiose peep toe wedges. My favorite part of the look would have to be the shoes.
I hope you guys are enjoyed.
