I just love a good leopard dress. I don't even know if it's something engrained in me from growing up in the tri-state, but I think most women would agree with me, it never stops being fab!
I had an event yesterday afternoon to celebrate the launch of a friends book. I knew this was a lot for a Tuesday daytime meeting, but it was fun. I definitely got a few crazy looks from people, but for the most part, women who were also there were complimenting the dress. Sisterhood of the animal prints!

With Full Figured Fashion Week rapidly approaching, I'm excited to participate in the Lane Bryant blogger conference. One of the components was for those of us participating to style an outfit and submit it for a competition.
I've been in such a tropical/vacation/island mood, that I immediately gravitated toward styling something a little different than my usual attire and I wanted to have something that stood apart.

Simply Be has been consistently putting out tons of great material and their newest line, Project D London is no exception. They reached out to me and asked me to review a piece and I chose this stunning floral mock wrap dress called the "Madison" Spot Dress.

By now if you've read my blog, you know that I'm a huge advocate of shapewear to give you an optimal fit in your clothing. But while I love my Spanx just as much as the next girl, it's not often that you find Shapewear that is beautiful enough to function as clothing.
The Gok Wan Collection for Simply Be is just that though. The pieces are stunning and look like extremely high end investments, although they run less than $100, with some pieces running less than $50.
I've had my eye on the pieces for a while and I knew that I wanted to try styling it outside of a traditional way of wearing it. I honestly fell in love not only because the pieces are beautiful, but also because the campaigns are so stunning and conceptualized, it's a big step up from so many of the same vanilla campaigns we see so often with plus designers.

Sometimes I swear the best thing about being an adult is doing things that you always wanted to do as a kid. And I'm not just talking about how I had Capn' Crunch for dinner the other night.
I feel like this outfit was exactly what I would have wanted to wear as a kid in the 80s. I was always looking at my sister and her friends and how they dressed and waiting for that great moment when I would be grown up enough to wear clothes just like them.
Now that 80s style is here to stay, I love wearing it and thinking about how much the 7-year-old me would have been admiring my outfit.
Please excuse my glasses and my wind-swept hair, it was freezing & crazy windy yesterday and I am trying to give my hair (and eyes) a break from straightening and ...well pretty much just ignoring that I'm supposed to wear glasses, lol.
