Holiday style picks continued...

Many of us have spent the month of December preparing and planning for Christmas day. We all have different reasons (religious or otherwise) we celebrate Christmas. This is the season were we experience the excitement of gift giving, and spending time with family and friends. Through all the madness that this season can bring, and the planning of our events and gatherings, we must remember to keep our style intact. Enjoy your Holidays, stay safe, and remember the reason for the season.

Style note: I choose this red envelope body con dress from Torrid, I absolutely love this dress. I love the way it fits and I love the way it feels on, the dress is made for polyester/rayon. This dress is designed with a faux wrap front with gathers at the side (which is very slimming), the plunge neckline and the asymmetrical hem line, make this dress so sexy and flattering. I purchased the size 1, which is equivalent to size 14/16. This dress is very true to size, so, you'll have to purchase your true size.  I choose to make this dress a bit more formal, so I added statement pieces, pearl and silver necklace, earrings and bracelet (from my personal collection), and red and silver spike high heel pumps (also form my personal collection). You can dress up or down this dress depending on your occasion. Red is a color that you can accessorize with many other colors. You can do, gold, taupe, black, white or cream. For those of you who don't like your arm out, you can easily add a shrug or a shawl.

The Demand fashion show...

I want to share with you some pictures from The Demand Fashion Show, held on Saturday Dec 7th here in Orlando Florida. The show was produced my Ms. Taykia Norris. Ms. Norris is a model coach, makeup artist, hair stylist, designer, producer, business owner, and friend. I was the plus size designers in the show. I showcased several of my custom made pieces as well as some ready made items, that you may have seen in some previous post. I also showcased some of my handbags. In the coming year I hope to launch my online store, so this was a great opportunity to gain some exposure.

Here are a few pictures from the show. The models did a fabulous job, and we had a lot of fun putting on this show.

These are some behind the scene shots of the ladies in rehearsal and before the show.

Holiday style picks continued....

Well the holidays are upon us. This is a time for thanksgiving, reflecting and planning. Giving thanks for all that this year has thought us (good bad and indifferent). Reflecting on a year that's coming to an end, "what have we learned, what have done, how are we going to be or do things differently". Planning, as the New Year approaches many people make plans and resolutions. Lets do more than make those resolutions. Let really live, love, laugh, enjoy every moment that life gives us. Lets have enough faith, and courage to not be afraid to try something new and different.
Many of us will be planning family visits, family gatherings, office parties, and formal holiday parties. I myself will be attending several parties and gatherings throughout this holiday season. As we celebrate, Lets not loose site of the reason for the season.

Holiday style pick: As I stated above, many of us may be attend that office or company/corporate
party. This outfit I selected, can be worn to the office and then to that outer office or corporate party. The brown skirt that I'm wearing in the post is from New York & CO. I 've had this skirt for more than 3 years now. This skirt wears well and washes well. I pull in out ever fall and no matter what I pair it with it always looks like new. The brown and gold tone top is from Stein Mart. This top is made from polyester spandex fabric. I got the 1x, which 14/16. I would say that the fit is pretty true to size, so, you would have to purchase this in your true size. The crop blazer is from Torrid. I just love this blazer. Its made from polyester spandex fabric I didn't show it here, but you can get two looks out of this blazer. It has a black bottom piece that zips off, to give you that crop effect. I got this in a size 1, this is Torrid size 14/16. This also was very true to size, so you'll have to purchase your true size. The cream shoes is from Shoe Dazzle (I bought these last year, the first time out the box). The gold necklace is from Body Central ( I bought these earlier this year).

Crop jacket Torrid this color is sold out online, but are still available in stores. Brown gold tone top Steinmart. It seems like this top is sold out on line, but its still available in stores.
