What To Buy For Fall 2014

Being a fashion girl and professional fashion stylist Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season of the four. Why you might ask? Well simply put the fashion is just better. Not to mention you get the most out of your wardrobe during Fall. You can wear your favorite summer dress (see how too here), rock leather at work (see how here), and choose to wear boots, booties or scandals… just take your pick. While spring is a close runner up, it just doesn’t have the je ne sais quo that Fall does. Need help conquering this seasons must haves and top trends. I got your back, your fairy style mother has the low down on what to buy for Fall.

What To Buy For Fall 2014
  • The Jumpsuit: I love looks that can go from day to night. This Jumpsuit from Eloguii (The Limited Plus sizes) does the trick. Its covered so you can wear it to work (and wear a bra) but, stylish enough to wear for girls night out or happy hour drinks. Pop on a blazer or waist coat and you’re ready for the day…and night.

Eat Chocolate, Lose Weight

Dear Guys & Dolls,

First, I would like to extend my deepest apologies for not updating in almost a month. I hope you can forgive me. I’m in the process of jump starting my styling career and moving into new sectors of fashion. Yet, thats no reason to have neglected my faithful readers for so long. If its any constellation, you all were in my thoughts.  And to show you just how much I appreciate your loyalty I came back baring gifts.

If you follow me on Instagram (@skinnyminority) then you know I have been on a weight loss journey for 18 months. Part of that journey has been incorporating the foods I love into my weekly or daily diet; fatty, sugary and all that in between.  It may not be conventional but, it has helped me to keep my sanity. Ice cream, Chocolate, Candy and Cookies have been apart of my “diet” and I plan to keep it that way. Eva Longoria says she loves pizza and she eats it once a week! I think thats amazing.  Like most women I crave chocolate often. And to be quite frank, I’ll take it in a 6’foot frame or a bite size 80 calorie package. I’m not a low fat kinda girl. I’d rather have a little bit of full fat flavor than a lot of low fat, low carb, low sugar anything. So for my girls out there who love chocolate and sugar, but are watching their calories or their thighs here are my 3 favorite chocolate treats. Summer just got sweeter.

Chic on the go: The Trench Coat

Chic On The Go

Chic On The Go

Nothing says chic on the go like a trench coat. Its one of those timeless pieces that will never go out of style. It goes with anything you have in your closet. Trust me. You can dig out your old college sweatshirt, your favorite jeans paired with your sexiest heels or flats and you will look perfect. Provided that you add a little lip and lash ( gloss and mascara).  The cherry on top of this style sundae… the trench.

I don’t know about you but when the weather breaks my social calendar fills up pretty fast. From Happy hours to bridal showers i feel like I’m always on the go. Add in working and blogging and I’m never home. Just talking about it makes me miss my bed already. But whats a girl to do, well if you are like me your RSVPing your butt off and trying to make everything fit. You only live once right?! In light of this, I have put together a few amazing looks to cool, cute and comfort all summer long. Y’all know me so dresses and jeans/shorts it is. Up first a sapphire wrap dress I designed myself because every gal should have one.

Fashion Facts Every Woman Should Know

Veronica & Me

Veronica & Me

  1. Not all blazers are created equal. They are also not all meant to be buttoned. The bigger the boobs the more buttons it should have.
  2. Belt and Bags should always match. Shoes and bags should coordinate but do not have to match.
  3. If the pants are not the correct length you MUST have them hemmed. Your pants should not bunch too much or drag on the ground. EVER.
  4. Depending on the occasion one must take caution when bearing cleavage. Anything past two buttons is too much.
  5. Showing your bra straps is ok, as long as they are sexy. Showing your panties is NEVER sexy.
  6. Every woman needs a pair of gold hoop, sliver hoop and stud earrings.
  7. When your not feeling confident, wear one color from head to toe. Any color expect neon.
  8. Square toe shoes are dead. End of Story.
  9. Be aware of proportions. Know when the lenses of your glasses are too big/small for your face or if a belt is too skinny for your boobs or waist.
  10. Invest in a tailor… just do it. You will thank me later.
