Happy Humpday Darling Divas!

Let me first start this blog post off by saying happy pride to all my Darling Divas/o that are celebrating this month. You all so beautifully live out loud all year round, but June is your month to shine and I hope you have been enjoying it thus far! This week I am back with another fun and fabulous OOTD that I am so excited to share! This past Saturday I went to Sesame Place for my niece’s 2nd b-day, and I thought it was the perfect occasion to break out this fabulous skirt that I got from Ashley Stewart’s Curvy Girl Pride Collection! I have always loved the rainbow, so when I snagged my hands on this skirt I was one happy camper! As an Ally to the LGBTQIA+ community recognizing and celebrating Pride is always a big deal for me, so I’m glad to see that brands like Ashley Stewart have joined in on the celebration! Most of the collection is now sold out, but click here to check out what they may have left!

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! 
      
Outfit Details
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!

The Power of Color: Complementary

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

We have finally reached the last lookbook of The Power of Color series, and I am actually very sad to see it go. I had such a fantastic time showing you all my color combos, and I hope that you all were as inspired as I was. The last Color combo we are going to talk about is complementary colors which are honestly the first color combo I learned about back in college. It’s a great way to end off the series, and I hope you will love it just as much as the first three lookbook which you can click here, here, and here to check out! Let’s jump in!

Complementary

                                       Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel

In my world no look is complete unless you have a little cheetah in it! This beautiful pair of animal print booties from Just Fab pairs perfectly with this orange and blue combo! This look is so simple, but packs a colorful punch that I think any Diva will enjoy! 
Look 1
Color Combo ( Orange and Blue)
Sweater: Target
Orange Dress: Fashion to Figure
Booties: JustFab

I was definitly chanelling my inner Belle from Beaty and the Beast with this look! ( lol)  I just wanted something really extra and of course something that showcased the color combo! This skirt should look familiar because it’s my favorite one from Eloquii! They really have some of the best A-line skirts, and come in so many different colors! Brielle and the Beast came out to play today hunny! 

 Look 2 
Color Combo( Red and Green) 
Top: A Dress from Dia&Co
Skirt: Eloquii via Dia&Co

I got this vibrant yellow blazer this past weekend at a thrift store, and I was SO EXCITED that I was able to use it in the last lookbook. It goes so well with these super hot heels from Ashley Stewart, and im not gonna lie I felt so fierce! It’s something about jeans and heels that make me feel
 like a vixen. Is that just me? 

Look 3

Color Commentary: Analogous Lookbook

Hello, All My Darling Divas,

Welcome to the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color series happening this month at NoMinusPlus! This week’s lookbook was Analogous, and if you missed that then click here to check it out! This lookbook falls right in line with the others. Delivering a punch of color, and we are here to show you the break down of those looks. So enough of this intro lets begin!

I hope you loved the That’s So Raven Vibes that I am giving you today, and all of the duo looks that I have shown with the Analogous lookbook! Let’s recap.
LOOK 1
 This beautiful color combo is definitely spring and summer-worthy, but can still be rocked during winter and Fall. For this look, I gave you two looks for the two separate pieces. If you want to rock just the kimono, you can pair it with a brown t-shirt, a pair of distressed jeans, and a pair of tall tan boots for a casual look that is perfect for early fall! This orange dress will be a hit for your next night out! Just pair it with gold accessories, a sexy pump, and animal print clutch to compliment the orange and give thelook some texture. 
LOOK 2
This look was actually inspired by the look above, so I gave you some similar styling tips that you are also going to love. This printed tunic top will be great for tucking into a beautiful skirt with a pair of colored pumps to compliment it for a bold and beautiful look for an interview or date night! Looking for a more casual look? Rock the dress with a pair of sneakers, a jean jacket, and backpack for a super laid-back look that is great for mom’s on the go, or a comfortable babe who is hanging out with friends.  
 Look 3 
Shorts can DEFINITELY be rocked during colder months, but it’s all in how you layer it. Style your favorite pair of shorts with a thick pair of tights, an oversized sweater, and tall boots for a super stylish look that is great for pumpkin picking! You know I am pretty much obsessed with creating work looks now, so you can style the blouse and blazer with a pair of light-colored trousers and pumps to have your outfit be the topic of conversation at the water cooler! 
Ladies and Gents that wraps up the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color lookbook Analogous! Next week wraps up this color-tastic series, so you definitely want to come back on Wed and Friday to check out the finale! Are you following me on social media? You should be!
