SKIRTED FANCY

When you become so obsessed with your summer go-to skirt that you can’t imagine putting it away, ever! Summer clothes are often bright, saturated colors, but just because fall’s palette is generally more subdued, it doesn’t mean you can’t bring the two together. The key is to anchor brights with pieces in similar or less brilliant shades. Also try adding your summery pieces with heavier fabrics and accessories.  Here’s how I decided to style one of my favorite summer pieces for the fall/winter season. 
  • Midi Skirt - Eloquii (actual below)
  • Houndstooth Scarf - TJ Maxx (similar below)
  • Striped T-shirt - Old Navy (here)
  • Studded Heels - Forever 21 (similar below)
  • Velvet Handbag - Juicy Couture (similar below)

THE JENNA - 3WAYS

As you can imagine, I was pretty ecstatic when the team at MONIF C. asked me to participate in their trendsetter/blogger campaign.
I was to pick a piece from their collection to style 3 ways. I was instantly drawn to the fabulous ”Jenna Dress”. Women have turned to the reliable LBD as a fool proof fashion statement since forever. But this dress is so much more than a LBD. So, to ensure you’re getting the most out of the chic, modern and versatile ”Jenna”  here’s how I styled mine into three different looks.

3 Ways to Wear FTF’s Hottest Jacket

If you thought that buffalo check/plaid was out, you’re wrong, dear friend! Bold plaids are hotter than ever! This classically rugged patterned Fashion to Figure jacket is given a modern makeover with a faux leather twist and I can’t help but fall in love with it.

Good news and bad news. The bad news is: the jacket sold out quickly online. The good news is: it’s still available in stores! If you call any FTF location they would be happy to track one down in your size and ship it to you.

I wanted to show you guys 3 ways to wear this beautiful piece. Comment and let me know which look you like best.

So I was recently introduced to Joules, a British lifestyle brand that sells clothing for the whole family (offers women’s sizes up to 16). The preppy side of me got excited as soon as I visited their site. I love to look perfectly polished at times and I am definitely drawn to British style. I love me some statement coats, tweed, rain boots, florals and fur! So, I fell in love with at least ten things and compiled a little fall/autumn wish list. I mean how adorable is the sheep bracelet?! Something about a golden sheep makes me happy. Anyway, enjoy my wish list and go check this fabulous British brand out! www.joulesusa.com

SO EL AYYY!

Decided it was the perfect time to wear a little Tartan/Plaid being that today officially marks the first day of fall. With fall comes tartan, in my book. Love how these prints go with everything from leather, to denim, to plaid on plaid, to leopard, stripes and so on.   

Anyway, this super cute crop set and graphic tee are from LIVING DOLL LA. When Living Doll LA reached out to me I was quick to check them out. I’m always super excited to discover new companies that offer plus sizes! Not to mention I am a real life “LA Doll” born and raised in Bellflower, Californ-i-a (West Siiddeee).  The line makes straight and plus sizes with a junior cut to them. The pieces I received feel quality and fit well. Also the majority of what Living Doll LA sells is made in the USA. Totes worth checking them out and furthermore they gave me a coupon code just my peeps. Use "bcurve10" to get 10% off your purchase!!

DENIM THERAPY

Leather is clearly still having a serious moment right now. So it’s no wonder that when Eloquii dropped these hybrid denim and faux leather skinnies I just couldn’t pass on em. I love how edgy and chic they look on. Now that the weather is cooling off, I’m ready to break out the darker hues and heavier materials. Fall is the perfect time to pair jeans with an oversize sweater/sweatshirt or whatever really.

  • Gray Sweatshirt - Old Navy
  • Leather Chap Skinnies - Eloquii

MAKE IT A COMBO, PLEASE!!

Wearing a matching crop top and skirt set makes for a pretty big style statement. Not to mention you could get endless outfits out of one set when you pair with other pieces in your wardrobe. Talk about bang for your buck! Love this crop top with matching fit-and-flare circle skirt set! It was a chance meeting at my local JCPenney on a lazy Friday night. Love when that happens.

Boots and sandals and slip-ons, oh my!
I know I’m not the only one who uses the arrival of a new season as an excuse to revamp my wardrobe – right? I put together a little wishlist with a little bit of everything. From super casual to a night on the town, mixing together colors and textures, every possible outfit is covered. Some of these will lend themselves to a wider variety of outfits, but I’ll tell you the best part – they’re all perfect with a pair of jeans.

YOU BETTA SHOP AROUND

Budget clothes can still be chic! Most of you don’t need me to tell you that. I am a self-proclaimed High-Low Girl til the end! I literally shop around — from the most ratchet strip mall to Bergdorf’s. It’s all about mixing it up and being creative. Instead of only shopping stores with fast-fashion quality you can also shop for brands with better quality so you can mix them together.

The Low
I’m so in love with this Forever 21 Moto Jacket (similar below)! The $20 price tag made me love it even more. I paired the jacket with this ultra-versatile Forever 21 Stripe Dress that was a whopping $17 (actual below). Both pieces can be worn a thousand different ways. 

The High
I paired my low-end Forever 21 pieces with a classic pair Ray-Ban Wayfarer Shades (actual below). Instantly adding a dash of bad to any outfit. They retail for around $150 and are a great item to splurge on. My mixed Leopard Clutch is 10 Crosby by Derek Lam (similar below). Retailed for $400 but snagged at TJ Maxx for under $200. My new go-to Booties are from Lane Bryant’s new genuine leather line — in stores now for $169 (actual below).
