Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

To save you all from reading another sappy "giving thanks" post I'll just say I'm grateful for the gift of life and thankful for God's grace because without it I wouldn't be here right now. From the bottom of my heart,  I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving, may it be filled with love, joy and merriment.

Thanks so much for reading!

Hidden Gem

I always seem to find hidden plus-size fashion gems online when I'm bored which really spells trouble and my bank account hates me for it. Well, I stumbled upon not sure how a few weeks ago and already have purchased 2 pieces and they are pieces that are statement pieces in anyone's closet and are also affordable and made well. The top I'm wearing is from Miss Guided and I love the look of it and loving the maxi length, the tie in the front is a little confusing to tie but just like anything else in life you just gotta wing it sometimes so I have this sort of bow in the front but I don't hate it.

Thanks so much for reading!

Hall of Chandeliers

Happy Monday!

Today, I start a brand new adventure with my new job in New York City, I have dreamt of working in the city since the moment I graduated college. I went to school in the city and the commute from New Jersey to New York was troubling at times, but with many things in life I mostly remember the good like the energy of the city and I have missed it oh so much. After 4 years, I'm finally back home! 

Another bit of exciting news is this super unique piece of art work I am wearing on my t-shirt, a super talented old high school friend sells her designs on Society 6 and she has several prints up for sale but when I saw this water color chandelier portrait I fell in love! Inspired by the Hall of Chandeliers in the Palace of Versailles this is a quirky yet elegant take on the breath-taking room and when I saw the designs can be printed pretty much on anything including t-shirts, I immediately ordered this and was so happy with the quality of the depiction on the shirt and also of the actual t-shirt!

Patrice, you are beyond talented and am so excited to see where your career goes from here!

Navy Dress

I don't really love the color navy, but when I saw the gold button details on this dress I knew it would be an exception to my rule and I'm so happy I did, the dress is chic and flattering and love the orange pop of color!
