Why Your Bra Band is Riding Up and Digging In

First let me start by saying Happy Tata Tuesday! I’m starting something new by posting a video every Tuesday with a special Bra Care Tip. This week in our first episode I’m talking about your bra band. 

45% of women are wearing a bra with a band that is too BIG causing the band to move and ride up their back. While another 40% are wearing a bra with a band that is too SMALL causing a painful result!

Trend Alert: Bomber Jackets

If Net A Porter Said... Than Its Chic

If Net A Porter Said… Than Its Chic

And a game changer it is. When I first heard about the bomber jacket trend I was completely unbothered by it. It definitely wasn’t a season must have for me. It was a bit too sporty for my taste. But remember that sporty luxe trend I spoke about in this post, well the bomber is apart of this trend. And still I was underwhelmed until I found the perfect bomber, it can be dressed up or down. Check out how I wear it to the office!

Brand Collaboration: SM & Abbey Post

Recently I was asked by Abbey Post.com what are my fashion recommendations for women with Athletic body shapes ( inverted triangle). As you know its my passion to help women dress for the lives they want, so I was so excited to work with them. Here’s a sneak peak at the article.

Stylist Karima Renee of Skinny Minority suggests that you “try dresses with fuller skirts to create balance between the shoulders, bust, and hips.” Cynthia Schames agrees, “The key to inverted triangles wearing an A-line well is that you must belt it! The Kelly dress is a great choice, as it has a fit & flare silhouette that’s ultra-flattering.”

How To Layer Clothes On Plus size Curves

Its winter… is anyone excited because I’m not… I don’t like being cold or wearing a coat for that matter! However, there’s nothing we can do but brave the weather the best way we can and that is to be utterly fabulous. Fashion doesn’t stop when the warm weather does. I’m not a sweater girl! I don’t think they look good on me in fact they have a tendency to make me look bigger than what I actually am. The same goes for the current dressed up sweatshirt trend thats going on…I’m not a fan. So whats a girl to when she is curvy and fashionable but the temps are below 30… LAYER.

Recently I have become the self proclaimed queen of layering. There’s a secret sauce to adding multiple layers of  clothing to a curvy, voluptuous, full body without adding bulk. Check out this look I put together which includes: 1 Jacket, 1 skirt, 2 tops, 2 pairs of stockings and 1 pair of heels and a dash of sparkle.

How To: Spring In To Winter

I’m the east coast girl with no winter clothes. This happens to me every freaking year. Winter time comes, its cold and I swear i have no real winter clothes. As an image consultant this is sad, lol. My closet is in adequate or so it may seem. But just in case your wondering why I don’t have any real winter clothes there are two very good reasons for this:

  1. I don’t really like sweaters. Pull overs to be exact
  2. I don’t like long sleeves. Sorry I just don’t love them and I don’t really buy them

As an adult the cute and cold thing is not an option, so recently I was faced with making winter work for me. While reading Instyle Magazine I got inspired.
