November Fashion Faves

 

Happy Hump Day Darling Divas!

Welcome back to another week here on NoMinusPlus! I am here today showing you a few of my favorite things for November! Since I am a fashionista, I am always obsessing over something fashion related, so I thought why not start doing fashion faves? I have done a faves video a year or two ago, but I am thinking about doing them monthly now! Let me know what you think in the comments after you watch the video. So enough chit-chat, let’s look at my faves!

I hope you guys loved the video! I had a lot of fun gathering my favorites, so be sure to let me know if you want more! I was able to find all of the pieces online still, so check out the links below if you’re interested in purchasing! 
Currently sold out in Plus sizes, but Hot Topic has a bunch of other Plus Size Sailor Moon Goodies on the site!

Get Ready With Me: Thanksgiving Edition!

Happy Almost Turkey Day Darling Divas! 
It’s the day before we stuff our faces for Thanksgiving, and I am so thrilled and excited to spend the holiday with my family! Today I wanted to keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive by doing a Get Ready With Me Thanksgiving Edition! On this day I was headed out to a Thanksgiving potluck at my job, so I figured it was the perfect type of theme for this week! It’s super short, super casual, and actually is a good makeup and outfit idea for tomorrow! If you looking for more Thanksgiving outfit inspo, click here for last years video!

Tracee Ellis Ross for JcPenney| Haul, Try-On, & Styling!

Happy Friday Darling Divas!
As a lot of you may know, Tracee Ellis Ross recently created a collection for JCPenney this past Sunday, and IT WAS FABULOUS!! I patiently waited for Nov 12 to come, and when it did I made out like a bandit with the pieces that I purchased! I am so excited to share with you my haul from her collection because I have been gushing over it since I found out about it last month! So grab a treat, and let the Tracee Ellis Ross fun begin!

What did ya think? Did you purchase from this collection? If so what goodies did you buy? Comment below and share! I, of course, couldn’t just do the haul without a bit of styling, so I decided to show you how I would rock my pieces. It’s breakdown time!

I put heavenly in this video, but it is the heaven Jacket. Sorry about that! 
Outfit Details
Mesh top and Bralette: Forever21
Jeans: Celebrity Pink via Dia&Co
Heels: Ashley Stewart
If you didn’t know, I am addicted to blazers. I love how they fit my figure, and I just love how crisp and clean they make any outfit. I am always dressing them casually, so for this look, I decided to throw a curveball and add this pair of fabulous pom-pom heels from Ashley Stewart. This bold and sexy look will make heads turn for sure wherever you go! 

Outfit Details
Tank Dress: Forever21
Belt: Lane Bryant
Shoes: JustFab
I FREAKING LOVE THIS DRESS! It is just so damn comfortable. I decided to use some of my layering superpowers, and I styled it with this tank maxi dress that I pretty much rock all the time. I belted it to show off my figure, and styled with my combat boots just like Tracee did in the promo photo!
Outfit Details
Flats: Ashley Stewart 
This dress was totally unexpected for me. I didn’t think it would end up in my cart, but something told me that It needed to be mine and I’m glad I listened. Now if you have a larger bust and wide back like me I would get this in a 3x, or go try this in store to pick the best size for you. I was able to try all three sizes ( 1x, 2x,3x) and the 3x fit best since the material is unforgiving and tricky. Now I decided to keep the styling of this dress super simple, but don’t worry you will see this dress next week if you want to see a lil more pizzaz!
Outfit Details
Hat: Torrid
Sweater: Forever21
Pants: LaneBryant
 I instantly fell in love with this jacket the minute I saw it, so I was so filled with joy when I got my hands on it. I just love jackets and dusters, and I just love this shade of red! I decided to give you Solange vibes by pairing this robe with wide leg pants and a fedora. I do plan on purchasing the pants with this set, but for now, my fabulous Lane Bryant pants are doing the trick!

Shoes: Ashley Stewart
This dress is just what every glamour girl needs. It’s perfect for the holidays, and the color-changing sequins is such a treat. You will definitely be seeing this dress soon!
So, ladies, that’s all for today’s video! I hope you loved seeing what I snagged from the Tracee Ellis Ross collection for JCPenney Haul! If you want to grab any of the collection most of it is still online so treat yo self! Be sure to follow me on social media by clicking the links above! I love you lots of tater tots, and I will see you all next week!

How to Style a Midi dress| Ft TheEveryday Midi Dress from Fashion to Figure

Happy Hump Day Divas!
Thank you guys so much for all you love and sweet comments about my NoMinusPlus birthday celebration last Friday. I wouldn’t be at 7 years without you all, so I am definitely sharing my 7-year milestone with all you! Today we are doing another one of my infamous short and sweet styling videos, and today it’s going to be centered around The Everyday Midi Dress from Fashion to Figure! This video is not sponsored at all. I just really love this dress, and I will definitely prove that to you by the end of the video! So enjoy and meet me below for more details!

 I hope you ladies loved this styling party! I love doing mini-styling sessions like these, so if you have a piece you want to be styled let me know! I would love to create it! Now, of course, you want to know where to get this dress. Click here for this version, and here for the sleeveless version! Let’s get into the break down of each look!

Dress it up
Jacket & Bag: Dia&Co
Shoes Aldo 
Dress it down
Jacket: Rainbow Shops
Shoes Target
Sometimes wearing brown can be tricky. On us melanin girls it might make us look a little nakey, but that’s not always a bad thing! If you want to give your black a break ( but TBH who really does) feel free to switch it up and try chocolate brown. It will compliment any skin tone and is really easy to style. 
 Dress it up
Jacket: Calvin Kline
Belt: Gifted
Shoes: Ashley Stewart
Dress it Down
Jacket: Rachel Roy (Thrifted)
Orange is pretty much my go-to color all year round. It’s perfect for warmer because it’s bright and fun, and great for colder weather because it compliments so many neural and dark colors.

 Dress it Up
Skirt: Lane Bryant
Shoes: Ashley Stewart
Dress it Down
Tank Dress: Fashion to Figure
Boots: Lane Bryant

 A wise woman once told me:” I don’t trust anybody that doesn’t like the color blue” I really honestly believe in my heart that she is so right! Who doesn’t love blue? It’s just such a good color! It has been my fave color my whole life, and it never fails me!

So ladies and gents that wraps up this short and sweet blog post. I hope you have enjoyed it! Be sure to follow my social media by clicking the links above! I am always updating my instastory, and I would love to follow you on IG, my FB so that we can keep up with each other! Make sure you run right back here on Friday because that video is going to be so great! I will give you a hint: Tracce Eliss Ross! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Friday with another blogpost!

11/10/10
This was the very first blog post at NoMinusPlus, and it was so simple and sweet. I just wanted to do a simple introduction, and I am telling you I had no clue of what was to come once I posted this first blog post. If you ever wanted to start a blog, my advice is to just jump in! You never know what will happen or where it will take you! 
11/10/10
Check me out doing two blog posts on the first day! At this time I was heavily into makeup, and so the first ever NoMinusPlus tutorial was born! A simple look that I remember having so much fun creating! At this time I was finally starting to realize what I wanted to do with my life, and this first video was the first of many! 
11/11/10
I came at you with yet ANOTHER makeup tutorial, and ladies my brows were just terrible! Can we have a moment of prayer for them? ( lol) I remember somebody in class asking me how I did my smokey eye, and I got so excited to run back to my dorm room and create this video. It was my first time actually speaking, and you could tell I was so nervous. Now, look at me! I won’t shut up to save my life! 
Girl I just knew I was serving! lol
