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.
