I’m in love with these velvet platform sandals from Topshop. They’re super bright and rich pink with purple ribbon ties—perfect. I love these shades against grey. Here are some other recent purchases, including a grey MBMJ sweater with metallic pink striped sleeves and a cotton/lace romper from GAP. Added my Janine Basil beaded pill box hat for good measure. This Fall, I’m...
Sunset & Stripes
This was my outfit for a party last night. After I saw how gorgeous this dress looked on xtina, I had to have it. I love the stripes against these snakeskin Helmut Lang heels. I think so. cal sunsets are beautiful, and you can see a bit of one in the honeyed look of these photos taken outside. xoxo Dress: ASOS, Jacket: Beth Ditto/Evans, Shoes: Helmut Lang, Necklacke: Antrho, Bag: Chanel
Carrie Bradshaw in Paris
No matter how you feel about Carrie Bradshaw, there is no denying her fictional closet is the stuff of dreams. The episodes in Paris are perfect and everything I want fashion-wise at the moment. Stripes, sequins, feathers, tulle, embellishments—beautiful. P.s. Who doesn’t love Carrie in Halston? You can have something similar in this dress from Forever 21, available in plus sizes....
Stripes & Blush
Top: Asos, Pants: Dorothy Perkins, Shoes: Louboutin, Bag: Miu Miu This summer, my go-to outfit consists of boyfriend jeans and a striped top. I love it because it’s a pretty easy way to look and feel chic during the hot summer months. Here is one variation I did this week—blush peg pants and a black and white cropped top. I wish I were in Paris! Instead, I’ll be in Los...
All Wrapped Up
Last night I wore my new Monif C. coral ruched dress to dinner with my fiance. I have never received so much attention or so many compliments as I did on this dress. So sexy. Definitely one of the sexiest dresses I’ve ever worn. Between all the ruching and this juicy color, I am in love. The pictures don’t do it justice! I wore it all night and it kept it’s shape...
Peek Into My Closet
This is what I see every day when I walk toward my closet. I may be feeling low but when I open my closet door, I get a burst of energy from all the colors, textures, and sentiment attached to different garments. And my shoes are just there being fabulous. In my dresser I keep things like jeans, cotton tees, and lingerie. I included a picture because my perfumes, jewelry boxes, and...
Great Hair: My Favorite Products
I’ve had some great hair moments in my life. Others I’ve collected from books, movies, and fashion editorials. You can say they form part of my fashion/beauty imagination. One of my absolute favorites is the final scene of season two of Sex and the City, when Carrie’s relationship (and hair) are compared to The Way We Were. Carrie goes on recreate a scene from the film...
A Pink Silk Dream
If you read my last post on spring style inspiration, you know I’ve been dreaming about bright pink pants. I have also been wanting to find silk pants because they’re so luxe. Imagine my excitement at finding a pair of hot pink silk pants by Ralph Lauren! These were a dream come true. I’m loving hot pink for Spring, so I’m really happy with this outfit. I think black and...
My Spring Style
I envision my spring style consisting of pale blazers, lots of thick stripes, relaxed silhouettes, and bursts of fuschia. Here is my take on three different ways to wear this cute tee from J. Crew this Spring! (1) I think a blush pink blazer looks so great with a pair of boyfriend jeans. This outfit feels very casual but keeps you feeling chic and beautiful, perfect for a casual date or a day...

Walking on Your Own Catwalk
I’ve wanted a pair of high waisted jeans for the longest time. So happy I have this pair from City Chic. I love the panels around the waist, the column of buttons, and how the jeans hug the body. I paired mine with a button up because I saw Kim Kardashian wear a pair of high waist jeans like this. I definitely think plus sizes can look great in this style, don’t let anyone tell you...
I love today’s outfit but I only had enough time to snap a few pictures outside my home. Hope you don’t mind these. I fell in love with this skirt when my friend Nicolette posted it and looked gorgeous in it. I had to have it! Love these colors together. Below you’ll also find a video I made! I haven’t made one in a long time but had some extra time tonight and wanted to...
A Study in Contrasts
Everything about this outfit was about contrasts of texture. Tulle, leather, lace, jersey—each tending toward soft or structured. This Rodarte for Target dress is dainty but the blazer and boots aren’t so delicate. I guess this look is sort of 90s-dress-with-combat-boots, but you can lift the chicness of the outfit by incorporating some stylish elements: a platform boot, a tuxedo...
New Additions to my Closet
Here are my first purchases of the new year. I’m trying to be really picky about my shopping so I haven’t bought anything this month until now. I definitely recommend a no-buy challenge to people wanting to use their wardrobes more creatively. I also think it makes adding something new to your closet that much more fun. My birthday is in two weeks (yay) so this is an exception! I...
Pink Lips & Gold Buttons
Hello again! Thank you for all the lovely messages from people wanting me to continue blogging. I’ve missed it and missed all of you too! I definitely want to keep writing and plan to make different kinds of posts (e.g. beauty, musings) in between outfit posts. I am in love with my new cape and its darling gold buttons. Worn over jeans and a white tee for an easy chic look. The cape is...
Been an Awful Good Girl
I remember being a young girl and wishing for so many things that were beyond my reach at the time. Life has changed so much and I guess I could now buy myself my own gifts. (But, what fun is that?) There is still something magical about this season! Take a look at my wish list this year— The things I’m wishing for are perhaps shinier and prettier than I could have foreseen years...
I love soft shades and cute pants so when I saw these peg pants from ASOS curve, I knew I had to have them. Note: these run large compared to other pants I’ve tried from them. I sized down and they were still loose around my waist. Asos Curve recently added several more cute pants to their range so check them out! I think this pinkish-brown shade looks so good against this burgundy button...
Fatshionable Feature & Thank You
It’s around this season that many people reflect on the year thus far. I have so many reasons to be thankful, one being the community of people that I have come to know through my blog. Thank you to everyone who, even when posts are scarce, continue to support me and my blog! Next, I wanted to share this cute blog feature. It always makes me happy to know the blog is reaching people in...
I love City Chic
Hello everyone! I have an upcoming outfit post but before that I wanted to make a short post to announce that Australian retailer City Chic has launched its US site. You may remember that Fluvia Lacerda was a model for one of their recent campaigns, which you can view at Plus Model Magazine. I have a couple items from City Chic that I love and wear all the time. Some previous outfit posts...
This Fall I want to be wrapped in thick knits and rich colors. Remember the movie Hocus Pocus? My favorite Halloween movie! I always loved the witches’ clothing and I think this knit cape from Evans gives off a chic witchy vibe. Perfect for October. A cape goes great with a chunky boot, like these by Jeffrey Campbell. Underneath I’m wearing a flowy top and my Asos jeggings. So...
