Three Cool Summer Looks

Summer is here. I always feel my spring/summer wardrobe needs more options. I have a lot of pieces to select from but no desire to wear them. I assume either I am not picking what I love and just picking want I like. Or I am guilty of picking similar pieces and get bored with the same look in different colors or fabrics. So I had to do a little research to determine what looks I love to be an option this summer. With traveling and attending events I need to make sure I have plenty options. Check out these great finds…..

1.  Black/White Graphic Rae Crop Blouse – JIBRI

GlamCurvy: Top 5 Conversational Tees

How different would it be to have a “COOL” tank/t-shirt collection included into your summer wardrobe? Well I found some pretty odd tees with a message I can relate to or would love to discuss with the right audience. A blank tee is so typical, but a tee with words and/or pics can be a conversational piece or silence the room. I dare you this summer to step out of the “normal” and challenge yourself to wear a t-shirt that represent something either naughty or nice.

to be or not to be

Happy Monday! You know gang, I love fashion and the creativity our designers express in clothing, shoes, accessories, and makeup can be breathtaking. But sometimes the word “creativity” gets push to another surreal reality called to be or not to be. Now we all know there is an audience and buyer for every product and those who love it, enjoy it. However, for many of us its just unrealistic, not age appropriate, it’s for the runway not everyday wear, or just not don’t make sense.

Check out these five creative looks I stumbled across and you tell me your thoughts.

Are U Bossy?

Today, I was listening to Spotify and came across the song “Bossy” by Kelis. Now for those of you who have not heard this song, you have to listen to the lyrics. It’s contagious. With that said, I thought about all of the GlamCurvy divas that is a BOSS. Check out these bossy looks at the office, afterwork, and nightlife.

Lyrics from the hit song “Bossy”

You don’t have to love me
You don’t even have to like me
But you will respect me
You know why?
Cause I’m a boss!

embellished glam

Bling, Bling. We all love it whether if its a shiny jewelry accessory or a studded jacket. Now as a  GlamCurvy Diva, my wardrobe has a few embellish looks. However, these are breathtaking. From the onyx emblem black dress, to the stunning pair of pearl stockings,  to a white bling heel , to a multicolor rhinestone bathing suit, and embellished face jewelry. I love them ALL.

Would you wear some of these embellished glam looks?

Plus Size Men missing in the “Fashion Industry”

1

Recently, I had a conversation with a male friend about plus size women in fashion and it went into a different direction. He asked, “What about “plus size” men or the  term “BIG & TALL?” I was sitting here thinking about that conversation and how “plus size” men are overlooked and the fashion industry tends to not publicize the topic.  So today, I researched the internet to locate the “plus size” or “big & tall” market and it was what I imagined. Only retail ads for purchasing  and little exposure to fashion industry trends, models, runways, etc.

So today, I would like to bring awareness to this hidden fashion market PLUS SIZE MEN or BIG&TALL in hopes to create conversation and exposure.

Boot Swag

Collage

The fall/winter season is my favorite time of year to showcase my boot swag. Most women love a sexy boot and jacket combo to showcase there style and glam during the wintery months.  Today, I started my boot swag “board” to identify my “must haves” for the fall/winter season.

Santa needs to stop by today, because I cannot wait until December to enjoy these. What is a curvy girl to do?
