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.

Day 10: Comfy, Cozy Glam

As much as I consider myself someone who loves the glamorous life, I also love to be comfortable and add edge to the things that I wear. I really came of age both as a fashion lover and a model in the early to mid-2000s, when Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kimora Lee Simmons were in the height of their "urban glam" (if you will) phases. In fact my FIRST modeling client ever was Baby Phat, followed by Roca Wear and several other urban brands like Apple Bottoms and House of Dereon (rest in peace, oh "urban" brands).

So there's definitely still that part of me that loves to wear things like big hoop earrings, flashy aviators, puffy coats and sweatpants with heels.

Day Nine: Basic Black

 Today's post features a classic piece that's simple but easy. This little black dress from Fashion to Figure is one of those pieces that becomes a staple when you want fashion without fuss. Sometimes you need a trusty dress that can go both casual and dressy, and this is the perfect piece.

Day Eight: An 80's Moment

Well, I've officially made it through one whole week of outfits and here we are moving on to week two! It's flown by already. The first week was so great hearing all of your feedback and comments. I hope we'll have this much fun throughout the whole year.

I have been really into oversize pieces and black and white (as you know) lately. Mostly I like switching up my normal style to play around with silhouettes that are unexpected for me. It's amazing how different your shape can look depending on the clothing you wear or the palette. Anything monochrome really changes the way you look. It can obviously be a good thing, although seeing these pictures after wearing this outfit tonight looks a little strange to me (I'm so used to seeing myself looking fullest in my hips).

Day Seven: Marina Rinaldi/Plus Model Magazine Event

Today's post will have more photos added soon, but I wanted to be sure I kept going with my outfits regardless of whether I'm waiting on pics. I had the absolute pleasure of working at the Marina Rinaldi/Plus Model Magazine cover release party Thursday, where I got to work behind the scenes helping to style the in-store models in the fabulous high-end line.

Day Six: On My Short List

Continuing with my journey to wear things I would normally shy away from, I stepped outside of my comfort zone to wear shorts. I've worn this particular pair from New York and Company before (see the post here), but never officially blogged about them. I just never have seen shorts as something I could pull off. But at the encouragement of a friend, I paired them with black tights and this Altuzarra sweater from Target and felt good about the outcome.
