How do you girls feel about peplum tops these days?

Every time I think peplum doesn’t work for me, I find one more variation that I want to try, so I ordered this plus size peplum blazer and surprise! I liked it!!

Plus Size Peplum Blazer Plus Size Full Pink Skirt 1

This jacket basically speaks for its self, so I can also pair it with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.  I can wear it as a light jacket during date night or as an all day office blazer. I don’t own a lot of blazers because they make me feel restricted in the arms/shoulders, but this one fits almost like a workout jacket, with a zipper instead of buttons, so its comfortable and looks structured without being structured, this makes it easy for me to wear it all day.

Since I’m in the mood to try new things, I’ve also been using a new laptop for my blogging. I’m an Apple girl, but when Intel asked me to test out the Intel 2 in 1 laptop/tablet, I was like “obvi!”.

I do love I can eject the monitor from the keyboard and voila I have a tablet. I also love that carrying it in tablet mode lets me have all of my saved info with me in one place. I could see this being an option for someone who doesn’t want to invest in an tablet and laptop separately… This device definitely budget friendly.

How to Wear Ankara Prints for Work or Play

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmailfacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmail

When I was a little girl, my aunts would send me the most beautiful clothes from Nigeria, where we are from. I remember loving the fabrics but feeling like the outfits weren’t necessarily styles that I could wear every day. I always craved trendy clothing made from African fabrics. When I had more time, I would make Ankara pieces for myself but these days I’m too busy. Thankfully, the internet has come to my rescue and now its pretty easy for me to purchase plus size Ankara clothing in trendy/modern styles.

I’ve been mixing and matching my new African Wax/Ankara Print pieces into my wardrobe at work and on the weekends and here are some tips on how to wear African Ankara Prints anywhere!
How to Wear African Ankara Prints For Work or PlayPeplum is a great silhouette for the office in any print. I purchased this Ankara peplum top because I knew it would work well with a simple pencil skirt. This look is chic, professional but still lets me rock my Nigerian girl style!

 I wore this Ankara maxi skirt during the NYCurvyCloset Sale this past weekend. I paired it with my favorite plus size denim chambray shirt. The denim gave me relaxed look that still felt put together. This skirt also has nice deep pockets so I was able to keep my phone and other essentials close to me while meeting some of my awesome readers :-)

Remember the other week when I was rocking vintage skirts and Tshirts? Welp, that rule easily applies with African prints. A simple black T-shirt let this tea length teal Ankara skirt speak for its self! Again, this skirt had pockets so yay!!

Tea Length Teal

This skirt was actually part of a two piece mixed Ankara set that I ordered for under $100. I snatched up the two piece set quickly because I can tuck the top into a plain skirt too (maybe a long black maxi? or even my black tutu!), that gives me at least three different ways to wear this set… winning! This look got me featured in Ebony‘s “5 Plus Size Women Killing it at Fashion Week” round up!

Keep in mind that the pieces I ordered were hand made and most of them came from West Africa, so it took about 4 weeks for them to arrive… but it was sooo worth it!!

What do you think? Are these looks that you could see yourself rocking?

Sports Bras for DDD, DD and D cups!

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmailfacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmail

The “I have to wear two bras at the gym” struggle is sooooo real!

I’ve been trying to figure out ways to strap the twins down while being active for a while now, and I’m happy to say there are more options out there for active girls with big boobs.

I am a 40 DDD and I like to order my sports bras one cup size smaller (40DD). I also like to test out different sports bras for different activities because the bra I need in yoga isn’t the bra I need for zumba, ya know?

Anyway, I dont want to overwhelm you with options, so for today’s roundup, I’ll be showing you four sports bras that fit my DDD breasts (eek!) I’ll definitely be posting more though!

Plus Size Fashion: T-Shirts & Vintage Style Skirts

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmailfacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmail

 

Last week my relaxed vibe had me in “Plus Size Casual Stripes & Solids“. These week I’m rocking Plus Size Vintage Skirts and T-Shirts.

I love plus size vintage style skirts for a few reasons. They’re usually in a fun/different print that makes them a great statement piece. Also they’re long enough for me to wear a light pair of shape wear with shorts, to avoid a chub rub situation. I got both of these skirts from for under $15 in the clearance section (link below). Tip: they didn’t have my size, but since the skirts were so cheap I ordered a bigger size and tailored them down.

Relaxed & Cool | Plus Size Casual Linen Pants

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmailfacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrmail

The other day on my YouTube channel, I said that I never wear pants because I carry weight in my tummy. The minute I said those words, I realized that I was limiting myself. Do I prefer dresses? Sure! But not wearing pants because I’ve got a full tummy is the same as not showing my arms because they’re big… its a negative way of thinking and it goes against who I want to be as a Plus Size Princess.

So I went online and ordered three pairs of pants. This linen pair is the best! It feels like I’m in my pajamas, but I still feel put together. Best of all, they’re on clearance for $17! Links below…
