Day 17: No Makeup Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I've been traveling all day after leaving at 5am and just arrived in this beautiful winter wonderland with my family. This year we are taking things easy and keeping it casual for Turkey Day. I love being glitz and glam but I also love being in my own skin, even with dark circles and tired eyes. My family never makes me feel anything but beautiful, smart and worthy and I am so grateful for them.

Thank you so much for being wonderful readers. I'm thankful for all of you too! Happy, happy Thanksgiving!

Day 16: All of the lights


One of my favorite combinations to wear is definitely black and gold, and it's the perfect color combination for the holidays.

With so many office parties, sometimes you need to find a festive but appropriate outfit to wear out just as much as you need a fun party look for hanging out without your co-workers.

I love mixing materials, like this velvet skirt and foil print crop top. I added this jacket over the look to make it a bit more conservative, because really, how many of us can wear crop tops around our coworkers?

Day 15: Solidarity

Today, in the wake of the deep and difficult racial tensions we are experiencing,I don't feel appropriate posting an outfit. Instead, in these tough times in this country, I'm posting a prayer for peace.

Let us all come together in love and solidarity to overcome the scourge of this country. Racism and racial tensions have no place in our society. I pray for all of your safety, for our justice system to do right by its people, for leaders to stand up for what's right and for love to prevail.

We shall overcome.

With love,

Allie

Day 14: Holiday Curves Lookbook


I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with some of my friends from the blogosphere to participate in a holiday lookbook that gives some party dress suggestions for women sizes 10 and up.

The bloggers are all different shapes and sizes and are all super fashionable.

My look is head to toe Simply Be. The other girls are also wearing Simply Be and Jibri.

Enter below for a chance to win $100 to Simply Be, because who doesn't need a little help to look fabulous during the holidays!

Day 13: Comfort & 'Couture'


If you couldn't tell from my recent posts, I've been all about comfortable clothes but still looking chic and edgy. A sweatshirt and a skirt felt like the perfect option for that!

I recently learned that Juicy Couture, which pretty much owned the sweatsuit scene a few years ago, is back and carried at Kohl's. They had these adorable graphic sweatshirts at a great price and I had to pick one up.

Day 12: My Feature in People Style Watch Magazine


Today's post features three looks, all featured in my spread in this month's issue of People Style Watch magazine. I am so excited to have this feature and it's such an honor because I am such a fan of the magazine. It features so many wonderful pages filled with fabulous fashion for all sizes, as well as celebrity looks and holiday pieces.

Since Reese is on the cover, and I'm in the issue, that makes us ALMOST friends, right? LOL
The feature, on page 103, features three looks you guys may have previously seen here on the blog. It's all about dressing for your shape and your body. You guys know I love belted silhouettes and anything that shows off my shape. I love a good bodycon dress (see the third look), but I also love ladylike skirts, so I was glad to see have a variety of my looks featured.

I am so excited about this and it feels like a huge moment for me. I also have some additional exciting news which I will be revealing soon.

In the meantime, thank you for all of your support. I'm having such a great time interacting with you guys on a daily basis.

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend.

Day 11: Flashback



Full disclosure, today's post is technically one I took some time ago, but never got around to posting. I loved this look and going through these photos made me wish for the warm weather to come back!

I had a super busy day today doing wedding prep (first dress fitting!), so I did cheat juuuust a bit on posting a newly worn outfit every day for 50 days, but it is technically an outfit no one's seen me in, so do forgive me, haha.
