Hey curvy girls all over the world,
One of my fave go-getter's in Frenchie Davis. This powerhouse talent has never given up on her dreams and continues to make moves in the music industry. I love this photo of Frenchie because it displays the confidence and sexiness of her spirit. 

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Apologies for the lack of posts today. My office has been pretty busy so I haven't been able to crank out any posts. Lately I have been doing so much thinking about the blog and the direction I would like to take it in. I love blogging and I just want to make sure I am keeping your attention.

There are a few new feature ideas that I am playing around with but nothing has really gotten me excited so I would love to know what you guys want. Feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email at

Now, on to this outfit. I love that metallic's are a popular trend this year. I made sure I embraced the trend by snatching up a pair of gold metallic skinny jeans from F21. When I think about metallic, evening always comes to mind. Since I my weekend activities were during the day, I wanted to add a little sheen to my daytime look. These pants were perfect.

To make the metallic jeans work for day I rocked them with a cozy belted knit sweater from Baby Phat. It comes in both plus and misses sizes.  I'll admit that I liked this sweater for one reason only. Can you guess? Yup, the leopard print belt. I also thought the diagonal hem on the bottom was pretty cool too.

I topped off my ensemble with a pair of black suede gold cap toe pumps, a gold link necklace. Threw on my cat eye sunnies and I was ready to go..

What do you guys think?

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
As a leopard print lover I was particularly smitten with this faux wrap dress that I found at K&G's superstore. I swear I am in K&G's all the time since it is literally across the street from my office. Some days are a hit and some days are a complete and total miss. I was drawn to this dress because the leopard print was different than all the other leopard print pieces I have. I actually found this piece in the misses section. It was just hanging there by itself. I eased up on it and saw that it was an XL. You guys know that I believe in trying everything on no matter the size. I looked at the dress and looked  at my size 20 body and said, "We gonna make this work. I don't know who we was but, I was going to fit into this dress.

Well, as you can see, it fit and my girls (aka ample bosom) were looking right.  I've sworn off buying leopard print for awhile because I have so many pieces with that print. Let's see how long I can go without buying leopard. 

Check back tomorrow for my Stylish Curves Black Friday Plus Size sale roundup.

What I'm Wearing
Dress: K&G's
Shoes: Michael Antonio
Necklace: Strawberry

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For the past week I've realized the following, " You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

Hey there curvy ladies,
This week's must have trend is the statement ring. I can hear some of you thinking, "What exactly is a statement ring?" A statement ring is a room that you can see from across the room. It can complete any outfit and bring a little sparkle and a hint of attitude.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
You know I have a soft spot in my heart for independent designers, especially ones who want to keep our plus size curves looking fly. I got excited when I saw some new pieces from Decadent Industries.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Hands down in my opinion Calvin Klein has the best blazers for plus size women. 
One f the reasons I'm such a fan of Calvin Klein is his ability to make simple styles sharp, sleek, and chic. 
While I always remain true to my classic looks, I am a sucker for details, especially color contrast trimming.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Thanks to my blogger buddy Chastity, I got a preview of Jibri's holiday collection. Jibri's  fashion forward designs for the plus size woman is always cutting edge and bold.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Jennifer Lopez was spotted hanging out with boo rocking a leather mesh bottom skirt. Jenny from the block kept her look simple with a black turtleneck. Thanks to Forever21 we found  a similar skirt style in plus sizes.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Today we are crushing on this classic trench coat from Merona's plus size line at Target. What takes this trench up from just being basic is the black piping.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This past week has been quite a whirlwind for me. Not only did I experience my first TV appearance but I also experienced my first piece of hate mail. Well, it was more o a hate tweet. I find it so mind boggling that the world really has a problem with plus size women embracing their bodies. Why can't other people be OK with my body if I am?!

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies, 
This week's must have item is the trimmed blazer. The holidays are around the corner and some of us are scrambling to find the perfect outfits. Hopefully, I can make the search a little easier.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I have some exciting news. I was on Good Morning America this morning along with Sha from A Thick Girls Closet. See video below

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This morning we are crushing on this uber fabulous multi colored sequin top from ASOS Curve.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's been 2 weeks since Sandy hit New York City and we are still feeling the affects. Some neighborhoods more than others. I've been a New Yorker all my life and have never experienced a hurricane of Sandy's strength. While everyone is working as hard as they possibly can to get NYC and New Jersey residents back on their feet, I ask that you can show your support to NY & NJ by donating to the Red Cross. There are areas who literally have no electricity, no food, and their homes have been destroyed. There were so many boroughs and county's affected by Sandy that the city didn't even know about them. Due to that, they feel forgotten.

Please if you have it donate to the American Red Cross for Sandy's relief efforts by clicking HERE

Thanks Guys!

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Thanks to last week's SCOD we finally got a little momentum going with SC of the day. We received a few more submissions. Thanks and keep them coming.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Man, this fall season, Simply be has been on point with their on trend straight from the runway looks. This morning we are crushing on this leather panel peplum dress from Simply Be. It is everything and more.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's funny how you can look through your closet and realize you have every piece under the sun except for the basics. Every year I feel like I lack a basic coat. I have everything from leopard print to faux fur in an assortment of colors. What I don't have is a simple black coat. 
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Today we are crushing on this ASOS Curve leather skater skirt for one reason only. It's real leather! Every plus size brand from Forever21 plus to Simply Be has created their own plus size version of a leather pleated skirt but nothing compares to having the real thing.

We sincerely adore ASOS for creating this for plus size women. It's not cheap at $140 but in my opinion its worth it. What do you think?

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies,
I hope that everyone on the east coast has made it safely through hurricane Sandy. This week's must have accessory is the fur vest. What I love most about this accessory is that you don't have to worry about wearing a winter coat. I really dislike going shopping and having to working about wearing a bulky coat or going on a date not being able to show off your cute outfit because of the coat you're wearing.

Monday, November 12, 2012

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
My favorite trend of the season has been leather. From leather accented jackets to skinny pants, I've indulged in the trend so much that I just can't get enough of it.

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies, 
The cold weather is officially here. It's time to spice up your wardrobe with bright colors. We tend to shy away from bright colors during the colder weather. I say, "Stand out and show off your curves!"

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I am so glad that we are getting a break from this weather. It was nice to just throw a jacket and not have to add a scarf or a hat and gloves. This weekend. I broke out one of my fave leather jackets and rocked it with a snakeskin print skirt from Michael Kors.

Friday, November 9, 2012

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I am a sucker for stripes, which is why there is no surprise that I am currently digging this striped blazer from Forever 21 Plus. It is the perfect statement blazer to add a splash of interest to your simplest looks.

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies
As a plus size lady one of the biggest challenge is finding the the perfect pair of boots that can fit our calves. Your search stops now! When looking for a great pair of boots remember you will have to spend a little bit of money. Especially, if you are looking for a great quality that will last a long time. You want your boots to be able to survive the winter weather for years to come.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I was so excited when I got my email yesterday that debut Monif C. 's holiday collection. I get so excited each season because she really comes up with creative designs that are fashion forward and body embracing.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I am so excited to share that a host of plus size bloggers were featured in a New York times article called Plus Size and Blazing a new path. I was featured in the article penned by Marisa Meltza. Also featured in the article was Chastity of Curvy Girls Guide to Style, Fat Shopaholic, Stiletto Siren, Nicolette Mason, Gabifresh, and Fat girls like nice clothes too.

You should check it out on New York Times fashion & style

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last week Khloe Kardashian was spotted rocking a super chic and sexy mock neck/turtleneck dress at a X Factor party. Although her look was simple it was sleek and alluring. As I always say, never underestimate the power of simplicity.
