Same Fit Plus More: Carrie Bradshaw Edition 2






If you’re just joining me for this during this post CLICK HERE to check out the previous post. Now, this look was so much fun to put together. While I was searching for my next look for this segment, I needed another signature Carrie Bradshaw look. When any fashionista thinks of a Tulle Skirt, they may think of Carrie Bradshaw.   Carrie Bradshaw wasn’t afraid of taking a risk when it came to fashion. Some may think her looks were questionable but I beg to differ.  Which is why I am choosing this look for my second look. 







Don’t shy away from rocking a tulle skirt if you’re plus size or any size. I think they’re perfect for any woman to style. I was a bit questionable about pairing it with the blazer but it the look came out perfect.  I loved that I was able to recreate this look with pieces that I already have in my closet. 













Stay tuned for part three of three to come!

Ciao,

Same Fit Plus More: Carrie Bradshaw Edition


What the Carrie Bradshaw? If you didn’t know by now that I’m headed to New York City in about two weeks. As a Graduation Gift, my brother bought me a ticket to visit New York for my birthday. I’ve always wanted to go to New York and it like a dream come true for me. I was inspired to go back to one of my old segments #samefitplusmore. I started this segment to share that as a plus size woman, there is no limitation to style.   See my older looks from this segment HERE!



This segment is dedicated to Carrie Bradshaw! Even though she is a fictional character, I can relate to her style and so much.  When I think of New York City I think of what would Carrie Bradshaw wear.  Even though this look wasn’t worn in New York City, I still wanted to recreate it.  This is one of my favorite looks that she wore during Sex and The City 2. She was at the market in Dubai and she ran into Aiden, one of her old lovers. 



I loved this looked because she took a graphic tee and dress it up with that beautiful skirt.  This whole look is EVERYTHING to me. I don’t have the coins for a Dior shirt so I had a co-worker re-create the shirt for me.  Everything else was items that I already had in my closet.  I’m all about recycling pieces in my closet. 









                       
This look is part one of my Carrie Bradshaw SameFitPlusMore segment. Stay tuned for more looks to come closer to my birthday.

National Dress Day 2019






I don't know who came up with these holidays but I love them. Today is National Dress Day and I had to find a way to celebrate. I find styling dresses very easy because it beats the hassle of having to find a top and bottom. I love how versatile rocking dresses can be from work, on a casual day, out with the girls etc.


I went to Lane Bryant yesterday to try on some of their new dresses because I've been stalking their website. After picking out about 5 dresses, I ended up liking only two that I tried on. I'm still in limbo about purchasing them because I'm saving up for my trip to NYC in about two weeks.










Here are a few of my favorite dresses that I've styled in the past. My favorite way to rock my dresses is with sneakers. It gives it an edgy yet chic feel to my look.

Wedding Update: February 2019



Hey loves! 631 days until I go from Miss to Mrs. I went back and forth about if I wanted to share my journey and updates with you guys. Simply because some people may not care or I’ll feel like I’m talking about the wedding too much. Each month or every other month up until the wedding I’ll share some updates with you guys. It’ll also keep me on track about where I am with everything. Don’t worry I won’t share too much but give you guys some insight about how things are going. 



This month we visited the top wedding venue on our list. We fell in love with it but started to see how quickly everything could add up. So we’re going try other options. Being that we’re both in the process of moving out and planning a wedding we don’t want to break the bank.  We also visited another venue for our plan b option which is having the wedding at a church then a reception somewhere else. This will save us half of our budget and we'll have more room to do other things. 





O n a Sunday afternoon my mom and I attended a Wedding Festival and it was so much fun. I loved seeing all the future brides with loved ones ready to plan their wedding. There were so many businesses there to show off their options for the wedding, receptions, and food.







After all the fun at the festival, I shared with my mom my dilemma about the wedding colors. I’m to say that I finalized the colors and what colors everyone will be wearing. Our next step is to finalize the venue and date.   Check back in at the end of next month for another update. 


Wedding Goals for March and April
  • Secure wedding and venue location 
  • Dress shopping ( Appt on March 23rd) 
  • Take Spring engagement photos and update wedding website
  • Find a caterer



Ciao,
