15 May

G7

One of my favorite Fashion Bloggers Gabifresh teamed up with SwimSuits for All and created her own AWESOME swimsuit line which launched today!! I was so excited to see what she came up with for the CURVACIOUS BEAUTIES and she NAILED IT!! Each piece only costing $68! Which is pretty awesome considering the fact that it is at times hard to find a cute, plus size, and INEXPENSIVE bathing suit that fits properly. See pics below! Drop a comment and let me know what you think….I’m thinking about order the Neon Green one myself!!

SHOES FOR ME

9 May

49b936c10e365

Hey Hey Beauties!!! As a girl who wears a size 10 shoe there are times when I go into a store find a shoe I love and get upset only to find that they don’t have my size -__- but I can never say I’m ever as frustrated as my BFF (fellow blogger Mickey) who wears a size 12. So, I’m like there has to be shoes out there for you we just have to look. You can’t possibly be the only 25-year-old with big feet 0.o. As I started looking for shoes that went above a size 10 and were actually cute…I almost got discouraged because I was finding shoes that at best went size 11 and then I came across an amazing website called Barefoottess.com. Their shoes start at a 10 and go all the way to a size 15. They have an amazing shoe selection of some cute and trendy shoes. They even carry fashionable brands such as Dolce Vita and Jeffrey Campbell <<<<I LOVE HIS SHOES!!! I also found that brands like Ninewest also went up to a size 12 in select styles and Nordstrom also had pretty good selection of shoes that went up to a size 12. I took the time to pick out some cute shoes that are trending for the summer for those of you out there who have similar problems! Hope you like! And if you know of other brands, stores, or websites that carry cute shoes over-size 10 please leave in the comment box below!!

The Life of M.E.

26 Apr

Sometimes I over think things and in reading some blogs it just made me realize how simple some of this really is this blog is my personal space, my safe haven, where I share my ups downs highs and lows about (trying) making my way in the fashion industry. It’s important to me to get this store up and running because God has given me something to do…it’s not just about the laws of fashion but changing the game as to what you can be…what you can do. I think we sometimes fail to remember that with God NOTHING AND I DO MEAN NOT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!! Philippians 4:13 will always be one of my favorite scriptures because it empowers me! We have remember that we are a chosen generation and it’s our TIME to DO whatever it is that we want to do!! Everything started off as a dream now what are you going to do with it. This…MY business is set up to let you know dreams do come true and that this shy little girl from Gary, IN is now grown up into a Beautiful, God fearing, Fashion Forward, Forever Fly, Uniquely and Divinely created individual! Fashion is to inspire…it can inspire others while you inspire it! So again I thank you for traveling with me on this journey called 4 the Life of M.E.

H&M Body Conscious

25 Apr

Hey Hey Y’all!!!

It’s been a minute, I know but life has been hectic for me lately but we won’t dive into that right now because I want to talk about one of my favorite brands H&M. I watch them closely because I’m so inspired by them. They constantly are re-inventing themselves and I am in love with the concept of their new line called Body Conscious where all of the clothing is made out of recycled material! Genius right! And everything is so GORGEOUS. When I think of recycled material I don’t initially think couture or high fashion…I think earthy laid back casual but it’s the complete opposite. They have done an awesome job with the designs! Check out the pics below and let me know what you think!!!

One of the most important things in styling yourself is knowing your body type. I came across and excellent resource on Pinterest from IGIGI for the curvacious beauties that gives you a good detailed description on your body type and what styles complement it so I thought I would share with all of you beauties

Mrs. Carter in H&M

22 Mar

Beyonce’ is PAIRING UP WITH H&M! She has partnered with the brand and will be featured in print and television ads wearing H&M 2013 summer collection. It also has been said that she has provided input on some of the pieces featured in the collection. Do it Beyonce’! This is a smart move for H&M since they are working on expanding their U.S. market…I look forward to seeing Mrs. Carter bring H&M some life!

DAY DREAMING AND I’M THINKING OF YOU….

8 Mar

IMG950485I often run across people who feel like that dreams are just that…a dream. 4 the Life of ME I can’t understand why people are so afraid to go after what they want. Every idea started off as a dream right? I have always been a big DAY DREAMER. Give me a quiet moment and I can create a whole new world in my mind. Well Sunday I got the opportunity to be up close to another one of my dreams which is to ride in a helicopter one day…(why not?) OWN a helicopter one day. I was pulling up in the parking lot at my church and there it was our minsitry (Spirit of Faith Christian Center) helicopter just chillen. Soooo I just had to TAKE A PICTURE!! I was waaaaayy to excited, like I was about to ride. So before anyone else pulled up or told us to get away from it I told my girls to come on and take these pictures (I also was in love with my outfit this day)as I pretended in my mind that this Helicopter was there for me and I was about to take off to New York and meet up with some important people about the Fall designs for my clothing store 🙂 My Pastor is always talking about  planting seeds. I am always planting seeds in my spirit for my next level of living. I walk in to stores where I know at the moment I can’t afford anything but I’m planting a seed. I’m motivating my self to get to my next place in life. Don’t let your dream just be a dream go after yours. Who told you that you couldn’t do? You talk yourself out an idea before you even give yourself a chance to even TRY! 

It’s not what you think you are that’s  holding you back it’s what you think you are not that’s holding you back“~Pastor Dewayne
