Who is Foxes… Foxes is an English singer and songwriter.

I love Summer but, as you all know Fall is my all time favorite season. Not only because its my birthday season but because of the fashion. Recently, The Karma Agency, who represents Simon Malls reached out to me about working with H&M on the launch of their new pre fall collection, Foxes. H&M, new fall clothes to me it was a win win. When I went in-store to see the collection I was delighted by that I saw. The Foxes line as H&M describes it is ” Foxes represents everything our Divided collection stands for: fun, quirky, and fashion! This is the perfect trend for the girl who loves a sporty and sexy look! The trend is called “Varsity” and it features many cool sport inspired pieces with stripes, bold graphics and team numbers.

Summer will never be the same, as plus size and curvy girl stylist Karima Renee host the first ever body confidence pool party. PlusGal Pool Party will take place on June 28th 2014 in Philadelphia at the Riverview Landing Luxury Poolhouse. A ticketed event sponsored by Smirnoff.  This event is sure to sell out and be talked about all summer long. The plus size community is one whose confidence and presence is growing both culturally and socially. Taping into that community with something fresh and inclusive is a great way to get women ready for the beach this season. The event will bring together women of all shapes, sizes, and ages with one trait bridging them all together, their confidence.

For years women, specifically of larger sizes have feared wearing a bathing suit. And while that is still a relevant fact, times are changing and so are plus-size swimsuits. Body confidence pioneers like Monif C. and Gabi Greggs Of Gabifresh.com have helped to pave the way. It was only 3 years ago when Gabi wore what she then token as a Fatikini on her national blog. Since then the world is slowly surely embracing the body confidence movement.

What I Wore: Grape-Cherry

Some of you may or may not know this but I love color! Don’t get me wrong black is a great color but it can get boring sometimes. I was inspired to do this post by a question I was recently asked.  Whats the most versatile piece in a woman’s closet? True to form I said a mid-lenght black body-con dress. It can be wore as is, a skirt or a shirt. Not to mention, if the length and fit are correct, you can wear it almost any where. Work, dinner, cocktail party, evening wedding, meetings, you name it.
