Ladies, this is admitedly a long post. If you're looking for something specific, skip ahead to the bullet point you find relevant.

And to my readers who have already gone through it, please share your tips in the comments below.

For those asking, my dress is from Paloma Blanca Bridal and the style number is 4512. Visit their website for information on where to purchase.

Sharing a Few of My Wedding Photos

Well, I'm back from my honeymoon and preparing to go back to real life after an amazing month of celebration with my new husband. But first, I wanted to share some of my official wedding photos. The question I've been asked most is about my dress, which was from Paloma Blanca Bridal. Tomorrow, I will share a post about my experience shopping for a wedding dress and how to find the perfect dress for your body. There is A LOT that goes into that and so I want to break these up into two posts. I'll break down where to find the best dresses, the different shapes, list some of my favorite designers I found, as well as what kind of shapewear to wear. So definitely stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, here are a few of my photos, which I hope you enjoy.

New for People Style Watch: A Layered Look for the Office

I hope you're all stocked up and ready for this "historic" blizzard the news keeps scaring us about. I myself decided to brave it to shoot today's look for People Style Watch magazine. It's all about layering and staying warm and chic at the office.

By now, you guys all know that I love bodycon (I'm not letting go!), but it's not always the most practical for the office. That's where layering can come in to make it more appropriate.

The sweater and the dress are from one of my new favorite collections, Stories By KO, by Kelly Osbourne. I know many of you are familiar with it by now, so I may be a little late to the party, but man, her pieces are versatile.

You can read my whole breakdown of this look, plus get shopping details and links by visiting People Style Watch magazine.

All Black Everything

It seems the snow is nonstop this week, so forgive the winter wonderland look of today's post. Trust me, I'd much rather be in tropical temperatures!

I'm getting myself back into the swing of things slowly but surely after celebrating and traveling with my amazing new husband. It's funny because you can be with someone for a long time before getting married, but then you officially tie the knot, as they say, and it somehow becomes different , even though it's the same. I know that sounds crazy, but what I mean to say is that while our day to day lives are the same, there is something incredibly special about knowing we have both committed to each other for life and have begun our new little family unit together with the two of us. It has brought us closer in a way I didn't know could happen after almost a decade of dating.

Anyway, enough GUSHING (geez, I'm so sorry, it's nonstop, I know). I wanted to share this look I recently blogged for People Style Watch magazine. It's this fabulous peplum and lace dress from City Chic Online. I love their store and site so much! The peplum is very flattering and the style of the dress allows me to stay warm in these frigid January temperatures while also staying chic.

Read what I had to say about this look for PSW HERE.

This week I will be sharing all of my official wedding photos, including a how-to guide for wedding dress shopping as a curvy girl.

NYE 2015: My Wedding!

Hi loves,

I'm still recovering from the absolute best New Year's Eve of all time -- my wedding to my best friend. We had the greatest time and I will be sharing more photos, including a close up and details of my dress, as soon as we get the official shots and not just photos taken by our friends and family.

For now, please forgive me if I'm not as active over the next few weeks, as we will be honeymooning and settling into life as a married couple.

Happy New Year to all of you and thank you for making 2014 a memorable year.
