Curvy Words Magic

Due to LIFE, it’s been sometime since my last post but I saw a few curvy sayings that I used as affirmations while living curvy. With spring/summer approaching, I need a little pep to stay positive with life perception of what “CUTE” means in our society.  I hope these curvy words is a inspiration to someone because they were magic to my thoughts.

3 days left before Christmas 2015 arrives. Did you finish Christmas shopping? Still have holiday parties to attend? Are you still prepping your house for family/friends to arrive and take over? Well the Christmas holiday is approaching fast and the New Year  is peeping around the corner a few days later. Unfortunately, I am still struggling with the thought myself! 2015 is really coming to an end.

Anyway, before we all embrace the warmth of family/friends, GlamCurvy want to say “Season Greetings” to U.

Enjoy, be safe, and super MERRY!

BYE BYE BODYCON DRESSES!

Is the summer over yet?

I am so excited and been checking out the plus size fashion industry collections for Fall. However, one of the biggest observations I found is when it comes to wearing fabulous dresses they either too short, too clingy, or too bare. Hello World! Not every body type or woman wants to wear a “BODYCON” dress and have to layer with undergarments or outerwear to camouflage imperfections.

So….  I went online window shopping to find a dress for ladies night out, date night, and/or afterwork cocktails with colleagues. Whatever the occasion is I discovered a few alternatives that may be flattering on any body type and the style feels sexy/grown. I don’t want to wear teen dresses in my 30’s, trying to compete with the younger generation. But on the other hand, looking 60 is not an option either. Check out GC’s three versatile dress picks under a $100 that may eliminate the extra add-ons that inhibits us from really enjoying our fab haute looks…..

1st Look – DATE NIGHT-  Lace Surplice Fit and Flare Dress – $56 – Dressbar.com

GC’s Top 10 Shady Eyez for the Summer

Not sure if you noticed, but our famous fashion and eyewear designers came back with an vengeance showcasing the shadiest eyez for 2015 spring and summer.  Sure, I am excited about the influx of new curvy fashion, trendy sandals, fancy handbags, and bold jewels, but the collection of designer sunglasses have a genre of there own. I think when you step out on a hot summer day, showcasing a pair of unique sunglasses it increases attention and conversation. Sunglasses is like a bow to a present, it will complete your fashion look with a uniformed presentation and include the question “WHO IS THAT?” instead of “WHAT IS THAT?”.

Whether you spend $1 or $500 on a pair of fancy sunglasses, make sure the style/frame is a great fit for your face, be bold, try a new color outside of the normal black or brown, and own it! You fierce enough!

GlamCurvy’s – Top 5 Plus Size Shopping Sites

Plus size shopping at one time was a nightmare. Just a few years back, I could remember Lane Bryant , Ashley Stewart and department stores like Nordstrom, Macy’s, and JCPenney were some of the only mainstream retailers attempting to carry plus size collections. And to be honest, we ALL know the variety, and style was limited for the chic modern woman.  Luckily today,  the need for trendy, classy, and fun plus size clothes is finally being conquered . Every week, I would read post from bloggers listing the newest/hottest  “plus size shopping sites” and I am too excited.  Today, I would like to highlight a few saved under my favorites that offers a little something out of the norm. Check out GlamCurvy Top 5 Plus Size Shopping Sites where I enjoy spending my shopping time and money on a periodic bases. Yes, I need rehab. 🙂

Fabulous But Not Fancy

The spring is approaching and I am excited about all the fabulous plus size fashion lines. However, I struggle with what to wear when I lounge around the house with a guest, run an errand to pick up a sandwich at the corner market, or meet someone for coffee without looking overdressed or trying to hard. I need the balance of fabulous but not fancy. With me working from home full time, the energy to get dressed is almost a “chore” and with this always “fab” mentality sometimes I just get exhausted thinking about it. I am not sure if its an laziness or am getting to old to be at a 100% all the time, but it would be nice to find a balance that encompasses the “fancy” without all the work.

Recently, I been on the hunt to find a few wardrobe pieces that can turn fancy down and fab up with a little bit of “she” to accessorize. Check out these cool looks…

Coffee Break or Lunch Meetup. Whether it’s catching up with your friends, scoping for potentials, or meeting your “soulmate” during the day to chat. Bring “SHE” with the tank top, sweat pants, clutch bag, and maybe spice it up with jewels. Bring your fab to fancy. Outfit by: GStageLove.com

Comfy Enough  – Whether you lounging around the house with this cotton shirt and legging ensemble or slipping on those flats/booties to run an errand of two. Supermarket, Nail/Beauty Salon, Lunch, whatever errand it is this look is Super Simple. No fuss! Outfit by: Onor via Etsy

All Day in the House/Morning Errand – A “sexy” enough tee shirt paired up with some boy shorts to feel sexy in the house all day. Or run an early morning errand and look fabulous enough for the men to say “Hello Sunshine”. My favorite.  Outfit: Damn Sexy Wide Neck Tee – HipandCurves.com
