Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This week has been quite a crazy one for me. I feel like I didn't have enough time to do anything. Look at how late I'm posting today! Work has been kicking my butt and my home life has been super busy with my little munchkin graduating to Pre-K and me trying to plan our family summer activities. I didn't snap a lot of office looks this week because they weren't that great and after Monday's monsoon and the sweltering heat I just didn't have the time or mind to put great looks together. Nevertheless, I did come up with two office chic looks.
So, I chose to just post two of my best office looks this week. They both were in the black and white family. Monday I opted for a striped pencil skirt from Torrid and yellow ankle strap pumps completed with a black draped cardigan and lace puff sleeved top layered under it.

Tuesday, I was very classic and simple with a white pussy bow blouse from Jones New York and a black pencil skirt from Torrid. I added a little interest to the look with a pair of leopard print pumps from Call it spring shoes.

BTW- Eshakti is having a major sale. Don't forget you get 15% off with code Stylishcurves15 go to to use it.

Hope you guys have a great weekend.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's been awhile since we've done outfit ideas. I've decided to bring them back on the regular because I get so many emails of people asking what to wear for certain events. We are going to kick off the return of the feature with the upcoming 4th of July holiday.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We are kicking off this bright and sunny Tuesday with Timeka Winters for Stylish Curves of the day. Timeka is representing for the plus size curvy chicks in Alabama. When it comes to her style, here's what she had to say:

Hi, my name is Timeka Winters and I am a blogger from Birmingham, Alabama. I wish to be featured on Stylish Curves of the Day because I love your site Alissa and I feel I represent the everyday confident plus size woman!!!

 I started this blog with the notion that I was a girl with a pretty smile and loved taking pictures. I say, my style is truly according to my mood, and I mean that with every word.

I was raised to always make yourself look presentable to people when they see you, and I do my best at that every time. I love my mother to death, but coming up I was always criticized by her for being too big!!! As I got older, it got worse but I just learned to embrace all the positives I had to offer even if my mama thought those were imperfections too.

 I have gained weight over time, but that does not stop me because with that weight came with a huge line of confidence! That is why I encourage people everywhere and anyone to Love yourself no matter what people say...
I love playing in makeup and shoes!!! So my blog features my sense of fashion, plus size finds, Make-up and so much more from a +SizeSouthernLady point of view. Check out my blog here at  

Cute, cute, and more cute. I love the leopard peplum top and neon skirt, oh, and I'm loving your shoe game. Werk!

What do you guys think of Timeka's style?

If you would like to be featured as Stylish Curves of the day please send in 4-6 photos of your best looks along with a blurb about how you embrace your curves and where you're from to

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This morning I received an email from the Carmakoma team giving me a sneak peek at what's to come for fall 2012. Carmakoma has the edgy chic look down when it comes to plus size brands and for this fall 2012 season the brand is adding a little more sophistication to their edgy styles.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I have a little confession to make. I went against my own personal fashion rule. I rarely ever have fashion rules but the one I did hold myself accountable to follow is never wear leggings as pants. I've always stuck to that rule because I've seen so many girls wearing black or colored leggings that revealed the color of their underwear. I figured, if I was going to try wearing leggings as pants then I would have to first find the right pair.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
NYC based designer Nakimuli has just released her summer collection for plus size gals. For those of you unfamiliar with Nakimuli designs, may remember a post I did on her back in 2010 (read here)

Just to let you guys know, I have been working with the Fashion to Figure team showcasing some of their super stylish and cute clothes. The brand has sent me a few items to try and I am so happy to share with you all.  Fashion to Figure is junior sized so often, I have to go a size up. The first dress I received was the little blue dress (seen here).

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It has been one scorching week in NYC. Where did this 90 degree weather come from all of a sudden?! Unfortunately, just because there is a heat advisory outside, we all still have to go to work. This week, I wanted to keep things cool and comfy for the office. When getting ready for work, I like to snatch and go. I also make sure that I wear comfy heels to travel to and from work. I find that platform sandals are the best.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
As a serious lover of all things stripes I have been having a major craving for them lately. This season stripes are everywhere and I just can't seem to get enough. When it comes to plus size women wearing stripes, you know, I am all for it. It is such a huge myth and misconception about plus size women and stripes. Being the shopper and fashion lover that I am, I have found some uber cute striped pieces that will have your plus size curves looking pretty snazzy.
 Hey curvy girls all over the world,
While I was being cheap and deleting photos from my camera just so I didn't have to go and buy a new SD card, I realized how many photos I've taken of outfits that I never shared with you guys. Now, like any blogger I can get a little photo happy. So, I try to take it easy on posting everything that I wear. While deleting photos I no longer needed, I came across me wearing one of my favorite shirt-dresses.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We are kicking off this Wednesday morning with a little curvy girl style. Today's Stylish Curvy girl of the day is Carletta who is representing from Arlington Virginia.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
After the weekend I had, I managed to muster up some energy this morning and got dressed for work. Like many, we all have those mornings where we have no clue on what to wear. We feel like we need new clothes because we have already worn everything that is in our closet to death. At least, that's the case with me. For the past couple of months I have been stocking up on printed tops to aid me on those mornings when I don't know what to wear. I find that a printed top under blazers or tucked into trousers and skirts are the easiest work ensembles to put together in a flash.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
On Friday I swung by the JMS and Sonsi Blogger events to checkout current and fall styles from each of the brands. My day began with JMS's breakfast that showcased their current summer collections and mini fall preview. While attending the breakfast I ran into a number of bloggers and plus size models that were looking quite chic.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Happy Monday everyone. I just wanted to share with you a little feature I did with Navabi for their plus size lifestyle and fashion blog.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It looks like there's a lot going on in the world of fashion and we've got the scoop on the happenings in the industry.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For those of you that have been reading my blog for awhile, you know my style is very classic and sophisticated with a splash of trend. When I saw this turquoise dress, I just knew I had to have it. It had a classic wrap top and A-line skirt silhouette. Perfect for a girl with a tummy, pointy hips, and a round derriere. A girl like me.

I found this dress on the Fashion to Figure website. It would have been perfect for work but the front is showing a little too much thigh. I didn't want to drive the boys crazy at the office. Instead, I opted to rock it to dinner with the fam. Fashion to Figure has really been stepping up its game from just club and casual wear to creating a balance by adding styles for those who a polished yet sexy look. In my opinion, this dress embodies both characteristics. No?!

To accessorize, I wore my turquoise blue cuff, gold and green beaded bracelets, a pair of gold and green chandelier earrings, a bird necklace, and my yellow suede heels to create a summer look.

What do you guys think?
