Did you enjoy the video? I had so much fun figuring out different ways to wear this set! I was amazed at what I came up with! Now lets get into the details and pics!

The Set
I got this black and white polka dot set at Fashion to Figure. It was on sale!  I couldn’t find it online, so be sure to check your local FTF to see if they have it in store! Click here to find a FTF in your area! Here is a picture of how I styled this set when I first got it.


Way #1 As a Set 
The first way to wear is of course as a set. The set was designed to worn together, and I actually loveeee wearing it as a set! I feel like a pin-up girl! The top is from DebShops (R.I.P.) and the shoes are from Ashley Stewart.

Way #2 As a High Waisted Skirt
You can ditch the jacket and just wear the skirt high waisted. You can pair it with pretty much any color top since the bottom is black and white. The top is from DebShops (R.I.P.) and the shoes are from Ashley Stewart
 Way #3 As a Mini- Skirt
I folded the skirt over twice at the top and made it into a mini skater skirt! The large belt covers where I folded it at the top, so that it could make the look all come together. The top is from Torrid, the belt was gifted, and the shoes are from Ashley Stewart
Way #4 Wear it as a cropped jacket
You can ditch the skirt and just wear it as a jacket! This jacket pairs perfectly with any color because like the skirt its black white. This blue dress is also from Fashion to Figure, and the shoes are from Ashley Stewart.
Way #5 Wear it as a tied top
You can tie the ends of the jacket together and tuck the ends inside the jacket to created a tied top. The dress is from Fashion to Figure as well, and the shoes are from Ashley Stewart.

Way #6 Wear it as a crop top
If you didn’t know by now I am a SUCKER for a crop top! To achieve this look I just have on a strapless bra under the jacket. I then tied the ends of the top together and tucked the ends under my bra. The skirt is also from Fashion to Figure, and the shoes are from Lane Bryant. 

Way #7 Wear as a peplum top
You can use the skirt as a top and add a thick belt to the waist to create a peplum top! Since the skirt is a skater skirt once you pair it with a belt it becomes flared at the bottom like a peplum top! Super Creative! The belt and pants are from Forever21, and the shoes are from Lane Bryant.

Way #8 Wear as a peplum top with jacket.
You can throw the jacket on and wear this peplum combo for a super retro look! I definitely felt like a pin up girl in this outfit! The belt and pants are from Forever21, and the shoes are from Lane Bryant.
Way #9 Wear as a bandau top
You can wear the skirt as a top again and place another skater skirt under your boobs to create a bandau top! Super cute look since the weather is getting warmer. The skirt is from Forever21 and the shoes are from Torrid. 
Way #10 Wear as a bandau with jacket
 You can simply pair the bandau top with the jacket to create yet another retro pin up look. I posted this as preview to this blogpost the other day on my social media. Who knew that this look would be followed by 9 other looks! The Skirt is from Forever21 and the shoes are from Torrid.
Well ladies I hope you have enjoyed this blogpost! If the descriptions on how to achieve each look confuse you let me know! My social media is posted above, so feel free to ask me any questions or leave a comment below and I will be sure to answer it! That’s it for next week divas!

Denim Problems

Hello All My Darling Divas!!

Welcome back to the blog! The Springtacular series is now over, and we are back to our regular scheduled programing! If you want to check out the series click here. I decided to come back with this little guide on buying denim. Alot of people, especially us curvy women, have trouble buying denim. Either they fit at the waist but not at the bottom, or they don’t fit at all. So I decided to give you some tips that I use when I purchase denim. Afterall they are the most common article of clothing in my wardrobe! I only wear denim like 120% of the time, so I am pretty much a pro at buying jeans! So enjoy the video, and meet me below for more details!

I hope you enjoyed the video! Hopefully it was very helpful! Now lets get into the details!

1. Try On
I know it sounds silly but TRY ON YOUR JEANS!!! Alot of people skip the fitting room because maybe the line is too long, or maybe you just don’t feel like trying on. No matter how long the line is, or how you feel TRY ON THE JEANS! You will be really upset when you get home and find out that the jeans you just grabbed don’t fit! I advice taking 3 pairs of the same type of jeans. So I will take one pair of jeans and try on a size 18, 20, and 22 in them. This will save the hassle of having to go back in forth from the dressing room just in case a pair doesn’t fit. 
2. Pay Attention to the Tag 
Some stores that carry denim have letters beside the size. The letters may indicate that this type of jean is Tall, Petite, Regular, or Wide. I would say to def pay attention to the label, and if the tag has any of these letters to purchase the one that applies to you. Since I am tall I like to purchase jeans that have a T next to them. This ensures that the length of the jeans caters to my long legs. I also like to look for jeans that may have a W next to them because my hips are wide and those cater to my hips. If they don’t have a letter next to them don’t worry! Just refer to tip 1 and try them on! 
3. Don’t be afraid to splurge
Alot of jeans tend to be pricey, but don’t let the price tag keep you away from purchasing a good pair of jeans! Buying jeans that may be $60 or above is a good idea because this means that they will last you a long time! They wont wear and tear as easily, and you definitely will get alot of wear out of your jeans!

4. Forever21
Ok so maybe you don’t have $60 to pay for an amazing pair of jeans. Well Forever21 is the perfect place for a good pair on inexpensive jeans! The jeans are mostly under or a little over $20, and they come in all different kinds of colors and prints. I would say to def check over there if your a little short on cash, but still want to look fabulous. 
Here’s a list of places where you can purchase jeans. I personally buy all my jeans from thease stores, so I hope this help you!
Ladies I hope that this helped you! Let me know how if any of these tips and tricks work out for you! I will see you guys later this week with another video! So until then ladies, love ya lots like tator tots, and see you soon!
