Polka Dots at the Baby Shower


From the moment my eyes saw this Polka Dots dress from Torrid I fell in LOVE! It is simple, but ideal for the office, a party, or a casual day! The versatility, the style, and the fabric made me love it even more. 

I finally wore it out this weekend to my friend's Baby Shower and it was the ideal outfit! I had a ton of fun and I styled my dress with rose gold accents, like the very famous rose gold heels from INC. I know what your thinking, some one should hide these heels from me now haha but, what can I do? I love them!

Anyhow, read more to see additional outfit photos and Baby Shower decorations. I had so much fun at the Baby Shower and I cannot wait to meet the baby in person.

The Sexy Maxi Dress

This post is in collaboration with Windsor Store. Everything mentioned in this post is my honest opinion.
I've seen many "regular" size woman wear this exact dress from Windsorand to be honest I never thought it would look good on my body type; however, when I received it and tried it on, I FELL IN LOVE! It is sexy, but discreet!

I loved styling this dress with this long necklace and rose gold clutch also from Windsor. And yes, I know I wear these heels quite often, but when you find a pair of heels that are comfortable, pretty, and that you can walk around in for hours... then, you must take advantage of them 100% 

Overall, Windsor definitely has one of the best plus size dress options out there!

Plus Size Formal Dresses: The New Windsor Store Line

This post is in collaboration with Windsor Store. All opinions in this post are my honest opinion.

Girls, I have awesome news! Tomorrow, August 14, 2017 we, plus size woman, will have one more shopping option for formal dresses.  Windsor Store, famous for its awesome selection of formal and informal dresses, will now carry plus size! They will carry sizes 1X-3X (FYI I'm wearing a 3X). At the moment, Windsor will only be carrying their plus sizes online; however, depending on demand, they will eventually have the items available in store. 


You have no idea how happy I was when I got the news because, to be honest, there are very few party dress options out there, especially for formal dresses. Plus, Windsor has always been characterized by having a great selection of dresses that are pretty, on trend, and at a good price.

I will be sharing with you more dresses and outfits featuring their plus size line; however, I wanted to share the news and start by sharing with you my this dress. I think this is a must have! I fell in love with it. It was a bit tight on the bust area; however, I added a bralette and voila! problem solved. 

FYI: This dress, and many of the dresses I received to review, are stretchy. I was a bit worried about sizing, especially because the dresses I picked seemed to not have any stretch; however, I was happily surprised to see that most did.

This particular dress is super cute and I can see many of you wearing it to prom, homecoming, or any of those especial events that require formal attire.


If you want to see the full selection of plus size dresses, or if you want to snatch this dress before it's gone, check out Windsor Store tomorrow!

Baptism Outfit: Tulle Skirt + Bodysuit


Hey! Today I want to share with you the outfit I wore to a baptism party a few weeks back. 

As you know, I love tulle skirts but to be honest, I don't use them as often as I would like. I haven't worn this skirt in a long time and I wanted to bring it out for this special occasion as tulle skirts can be dressed up or down.

I paired it with this super cute bodysuit that was gifted to me by Shimmera store I've mentioned here before many times and which I loveThey have a large variety of bodysuits in store and a couple super cute ones online as well. Check them out here!. I've been eyeing the pink one! 

Here are more photos and outfit details! 

Boutique + Jeggings and Plaid: The Perfect Combination



I'm one of those girls that often finds herself staring at her closet (full of clothes BTW) thinking she has nothing to wear. And, to be honest, I KNOW i'm not the only one. I'm sure you, YES YOU, have also found yourself in that predicament 😹. On one of those occasions I created this outfit. Yes, I know it's a semi-casual outfit, but as much as I have worn each of the pieces individually, I have never ever put them together, and when I did.... Oh, I feel in love! Plus, the heels gave it that perfect pop of color! 

Oh, and let's also talk about these lashes! I LOVE THEM. I think I used them on my previous post too haha. No, I'm not being paid to speak about them, I just wear them too often lol.  These are the Jet Setter lashes from PUR Cosmetics!
