I have always had interest in fashion! I subscribed to all the fashion magazines as a kid, and I always followed the latest trend!
I watch movies and shows, and secretly pay attention to not what is actually going on in the show, but what the actors are wearing! I check the credits at the end to see who their stylist was and google the shit out of them!
I follow fashion blog after fashion blog, and the greatest fashion IG'ers! Well guess what..... I'm jealous! I want to do that too! I've felt that I couldn't do that, with the current state of my body weight/mass, but recently, I have been following a few fellow " Curvy" bloggers and I have thought to myself, "why can't you?" I know that I shouldn't care about what other people think of me, but I DO! I think deep down, most people feel the same way I do. Whether they will admit it or not. But I have found myself at a time where I think "Why should I be letting what I think other's are thinking of me, to stopping me from doing something that I believe will make me happy?"
So that's what I'm gonna do! I'm going to fashion blog.... my big fat ass and all! Not everyone can be perfect, and only God knows that I'm surely not, but hey, I've let too many social functions, or meetings or even parties go by that I was so ashamed of my weight gain to even go and attend, that I'm gonna say "fudge it" and I'm gonna jump that hurdle and start doing what I want!
This will be that I will be able to shop more! (I secretly just wanted something to give me an excuse to shop more) I want to feature a lot of money conscious items and places that most people can shop at! I'm excited to be starting this venture and adding it to my blog! I'm hoping you will enjoy it too!
Until Next time

It's just around the corner!! I'm talking about Spring!! (fingers crossed) And today we are talking all about spring trends 2019! I like to keep up to date on the latest fashion trends, some I will wear and some I won't, but never the less, I will break it all down for you here!!
1) Bike Shorts
Remember way back when those dreaded bike shorts were all the rage? Well guess what? They are coming around again! Geez, I wish I would have kept some of mine from back in the day... scratch that, they look ridiculous!! And nope these babies will NOT BE coming into my closet... instead I'm going to be sporting some more mature types like this.. which I might add, are also showing a big comeback this year! You can find the dreaded bike shorts here or the more mature looking shorts here
2) Graphic T-Shirts
With the millions of options, you can go from tv shows to band shirts. These can be spotted on every website, in every store window. Tell me, is there anything more stylish then a pair of distressed jeans and a graphic tee? I should think not!
Now I know if you follow Molly Ringwald's rules, these are a faux pas, but I know I will be sporting a few of these this year! You can find them here or here
3) ANIMAL PRING
Now if this photo strikes your fancy, then you're in luck, cause Animal print, especially Leopard print is coming in hard! Personally, not a big fan, but hey, You Do You Girl! And boy there is lots to choose from...
From skirts, to shoes, to shirts, to earrings, look out for the wild prints!
You can find some great pieces here and here and here...
How fabulous is this leopard dress with booties.... Now this I could wear....
OH EM GEE... this is going to be my vice! You all should know by now that Light purple, well purple of any kind, but lilac in particular, is my go to colour!! And yes, I have already started adding this shade in my closet!! So if you see someone in head to toe Lilac, it'll be ME!!
HAHAHA GIVE ME ALL THE PURPLE!!!
They come in all sizes and shapes and let's just say the 90's are back baby!!! You can find a great assortment of barrettes here.
6) Small Purses and Back Packs
This spring hosts a lot of small purses and back packs. You might had started to notice these already, but they are classic and don't be afraid to add a piece or two to your collection, as they are timeless!
Here is an excellent choice for myself! ;)
Have you seen any trends that are upcoming for Spring? What are some items that I may have missed? What, if any, are on your wish list?
Until next time, Stay warm
