I bought this dress at a thrift store a few weeks back when I went to New Jersey. Some look and say it's a grandma dress but I say either way you're still looking! ha! Shoulder pads..check; floral..check; head turning..check. I love wearing clothes that aren't trendy, don't ever want to feel ordinary! Happy birthday to my Princess of Persia! And thank you everyone for so many sweet comments! I just added a bunch of heels to my store, you can click HERE to see!

“Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong” -Peter T. Mcintyre

Let me first say thank you to my massive amount of new followers. I appreciate and am very thankful for all of you! I've gotten so many sweet comments and tweets lately. After reading all the reposts about me, I became anxious to do another post. I thought it was pretty funny to see so many people label me as a "plus size" blogger because I never categorized or envisioned myself as a plus size blogger, just a blogger who is insanely in love with fashion. If we all have the same love for fashion, why is there a label on weight? As of now, I weigh 160 lbs and if that's plus size then im glad and proud to be it because I love my body! I have and always will be super confident with myself. It's good to see the fashion world accepting more curvy women like me! My white blazer with black trim I found at a thrift store in New Jersey and my sunglasses I designed myself [further below you can see DIY]. Have a great weekend my loves!


My DIY shattered glass sunglasses
So the other night I was watching the Beyonce-Diva music video and I really wanted the glasses she had on but definitely could not make them, sooo I got inspired to go break some mirrors and glue them on to these glasses I barely ever used before. This was them before, and in the above pictures you can see the finished product =]

the mind is a beautiful tool.

Last time I was in Philadelphia, I went thrift shopping and found this linen dress. My belt, over sized clutch, and earrings were given to me by my grandmother and my heels are from Charlotte Russe. I almost died when I saw this over sized clutch, I knew I needed it in my life. haha. My hair was done by Luis Vega, thank you sooo much! Ardent was incredibly sweet to feature me on her fashion blog. Check out the feature of me on her blog by clicking HERE! I hope everyone is having a good week.

"I used to walk down the street like I was a star. I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be - and then to fight so hard for it that the lie becomes the truth" -Lady Gaga

I loved this outfit when I first put it together because the colors reminded me of Cinderella! haha. My skirt and socks are from Forever 21 and my corset is thrifted along with my earrings. I had to put this Lady Gaga quote up just because anyone who knows me personally knows I already act like I'm a famous fashion icon so it suited me perfectly! haha. I want to say thank you to Wangari for featuring me in her blog. You're too sweet! You can check out my feature HERE!

WOW. Sorry I have been neglecting my blog lately. It's Monday night and I finally touched back down in Florida and now more determined than ever to get my blog back in full effect. These are the last pictures I have from my trip up north. My last post was in Manhattan, and the photos in this post were taken at a park in Elizabeth, New Jersey. My jeans are F21, and my leather jacket is thrifted. Now that im back in Florida, I have more energy than ever, which is good considering all the goals I want to accomplish!

Sorry I haven't been blogging lately. I'm back in New Jersey and staying busy. Yesterday, I went to Manhattan to visit the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and was pretty overwhelmed with everything. It's all too surreal. Hopefully I'll be starting there January 2012!

I usually only put one quote up, but I've been feeling so much lately that I decided to put two. I leave for New Jersey this weekend and of course I have been procrastinating on packing. Sometime next week i'll be visiting the fashion school in New York I want to apply for. My leopard dress and gold clutch are thrifted and my grandmother gave me my belt. Have a good weekend guys, hopefully mine gets better.
