December's Blog Crush

This months "Blog Crush" is Gabifresh and Girl with Curves
I love their style !!!! They have inspired me to step outside the box and throw away the oversized shirts and pants that I used to hide behind . I love how they both display that you can be curvy and fab at the same time . Thanx to them I'm now in love with F21 plus line . F21 knows my curves and my budget :)
Have a Great work week

The Peter Pan Coat



Happy Sunday!!!!
 Todays post is inspired by the movie "Sparkle" I loved the retro style displayed in the movie.
The one item that stuck out the most were the fab coats that they wore back in the 1960's . Then  I remembered that I had this peter pan collar coat just hanging in my closet and needed to dust if off immediatly lol and what better way to wear a coat than by pairing it with these amazing fitting skinny jeans  and to keep the look 100% retro I addded touches of bows and polka dots to complete my look :)
What I'm Wearing : coat (Dillards) skinny jeans (F21) heels (J.Simpson) bag (Aldo)
