CLASSY IN TULLE: ESHAKTI REVIEW!




PRETTY IN TULLE: ESHAKTI REVIEW




      I'm always skeptical about wearing tulle skirts because I feel like people always think of a tutu skirt.  When I mention to anyone I'm wearing tulle fabric the facial expressions they make are always priceless. I was elated when I was contacted by Eshakti to review one of their beautiful tulle skirts. I had just seen singer/rapper  Kelis rocking a pink floor length one on fashion bomb daily and fell in love. I thought I would have to call my designer to make me a replica by hand  but to my surprise Eshakti had them up to a size 36W. The thing I love about Eshakti is that you can custom order  your items to your desire. I love a tulle skirt that hits a little below the knee it's not too long and it's still gives you the chance to show off your shoes. 



If you've been living under a rock and haven't followed me on IG yet (@afatgirlsblues) Then you wouldn't know  I am 2014 Miss Plus Universe. I was elated when I won and also excited about all the new avenues carrying a Title would bring.  I have a Royal court which Consist of The 1st runner up Miss Latequa Mills and 2nd runner up Miss Markita Pittman. I was so happy when Latequa said that she had wrote and Published her first book. I wouldn't miss her book signing for anything in the World. I decided to break out my Tulle Skirt and Pair it Leopard and Hues of cobalt blue. The look was classy and appropriate for the occasion since it was hosted in a sexy all white Ball Room.

SOMEONE YOU SHOULD FOLLOW: WEIGHT LOSS TRANSFORMATION

SOMEONE YOU SHOULD FOLLOW:

@MS_CHACI
WEIGHT LOSS INSPIRATION






I've decided to make my "someone you should follow" a weekly blog post because I find some of the most amazing stories on social media. I know that people when deciding to make a life change i.e. healthier life, moving, designing, etc.  we look to social media or the Internet to find ideas. In some cases people on social media threw their own lives can inspire so many people just by being themselves. I came across @Miss_Chaci on IG who is a shapely Latina with a amazing story about 
her weight loss journey. She constantly post pictures with motivational quotes and pictures telling her more than 12k followers not to give up on a daily basis. She is not offering up  a gimmick or a quick fix which is what I love about her. She is saying If you want it you must work hard for it and it won't be easy and It won't be over night. 





I know when deciding start a healthier lifestyle or start a weightless journey some get obsessed with the process. When deciding to take the natural way of losing weight without surgery or pills  the time it takes can be scary. In my opinion I love the fact that she has taken years to lose the weight the right way and she preaches that on her page all of the time. She is inspirational, beautiful and driven to get fit and healthy. So if you haven't followed @Miss_Chaci maybe you should tiptoe over to IG and do so like right now! If you're feeling down or need a boost don't be discouraged you have time on your side and the outcome will be great if you just wait on it and work hard for it. 




WEDDINGS AND ANIMAL PRINT: UNDER $50!

  

 LOOKING HOT UNDER $50!


           I know this may sound super duper cliche' but I love .....LOVE! So when I was invited to a Co-Workers wedding I was super excited about attending. I must admit when going to these kinds of functions I'm always in tears before the vows even start. I will say when attending events like this I cringe at the thought of what I'm going to wear. You must know your body type and when it comes down to mine I know I am very bottom heavy. I have struggled with my bottom part for sometime now. I mean who doesn't love hips and thighs in a bodycon dress but for certain looks they can be overwhelming in my opinion.




Macy's Inc sheer shirt w/cami On sale $14.99

Worthington Slit-Front Pencil Skirt $19.99


TOTAL: 34.98




 

This is a front slit skirt but some on my followers have stated that they have wore it backwards when uncomfortable with the split in the front and that works as well. I fell in love with each  piece separately from two separate blogs.  I decided not to match the white in the skirt with a white top. The gray top allows the skirt to stand out matched with some simple black heels the look is both classy and appropriate for the occasion. If you want to spice this look up u can use hues such as pink, cobalt blue, red and even orange.

SOMEONE YOU SHOULD FOLLOW: YOGA AND CURVES

             YOGA HAS NO LIMITS: CURVY AND FLEXIBLE





So I have come across this young ladies pictures of several yoga poses all over tumblr, pinterest and of course YouTube. I must admit I wondered how a curvy woman could be so flexible and confident at the same time without speaking one word. I searched all over fb for a fan page to follow this diva with no luck. I must admit I was super excited when I finally found her on IG her post have inspired me to want to strengthen my core and be more flexible. You don't see many curvy women doing yoga because so many think that it can't be done and for that reason alone you should definitely find out and get to know @mynameisjessamyn on IG!

She also has a tumblr with a pretty detail FAQ section for those that want to know how she started and what she really gets from Yoga.  I think I will give either yoga or pole dancing a try but I am in fear of not having enough endurance.

WHITE HOT……BABY SHOWER EDITION

As you all know I have been on an extended vacation from blogging. I feel like it's like any other job or task sometimes you love and sometimes you DON'T. I read several blogs and some are just not giving me enough. I mean when I read or write a blog for me it's about being as REAL to my readers as they are to me. So let's just say I was feeling a little "discouraged from blogging" and leave it at that. I guess sometimes you just have to be the change u want to see in the world and hopefully everyone or at least a few catch on. So enough of that This week I attended a baby shower of a great friend of mine and decided to keep the attire simple and chic without breaking the bank. I more than likely always wear jeans to baby showers in fear someone will request me to play a game that requires me to have on pants. You can't go wrong with a maxi skirt or jeans because I try to win every single game.


 ASOS





I decided on both pieces from asos and they both were ON SALE which was even more of a reason to pick them up!

LIPPIE?


I'm always  getting questioned about my choice of lipstick or gloss this gloss is  Asian Flower by MAC. I basically wear it almost everyday and it's pretty neutral to me and not to overpowering how some pink or red lipsticks seem to be.

UNIQUE SHOES AREN'T ONLY FOR THE RICH AND FAMOUS!

So I was doing my normal browsing trends and sites like Saks and Pinterest and I ran across Sophia Webster and I would be lying if I didn't tell you how I browsed the web looking for her shoes and just wanting to know the designer of the such beautiful shoes. The price tag was no surprise for such beautiful shoes but I understand the average women in this economy most women can't drop $400+ dollars on one pair of  shoes. Which brings me to my latest blog post of showcasing unique shoes with a reasonable price tag for the average woman.



A DIVA CAN BE ON A BUDGET AND STILL FLY WITH THESE LOOKS

www.lolashoetique.com

  







I love lola shoetique because they are reasonably priced and always have a unique look and flare to them.  I'm always asked about my shoes when I wear a pair from this site who doesn't like to standout? 





WEDGE OR BOOTIE?






 Now nastygal gives me life every chance I log on if you are really into rocking independent and unique brands this exactly where you should shop. It's really my go to store when I'm feeling very futuristic.


PRINTED JUMPERS: CASUAL FASHION


PRINTED JUMPERS: CASUAL FASHION


Now I love  good outfit that can be dressed up or dressed down and my snake printed jumper was perfect today. It seems as if my days off of work are always filled with running errands and being on my feet. Since Miami is such a social city my days of styling personal clients has reached a all time high. You would be surprised what I style people for i.e. dates, concerts,graduation and even funerals. I love my job however I don't love having aching feet from walking over 4 malls in one day.




It's so  ironic I wore this baby phat jumper after having a 2 hour long conversion with my co workers that brands like FUBU and baby phat were not as popular  as it was in the the 90's. I however am a firm believer in fashion and I really didn't care that it was from baby phat. I wonder if others would rock brands that the "urban" community have kind of left by the way side. 




I paired this jumper suit was a pair of nine west flats and black clutch and hit the malls. I can't wait to dress this look up. I order a 3x but kind of wish I would've went down to a 2x to have a more fitted leg and it was loose in the tummy area.
