An Ode To Summer

Hey Guys!!

These past few days have allowed us all in the DMV to be able to catch a cool cool breeze while still enjoying the rest of these summer days! Although I've only been catching it to and from work, I just knew when I stepped out I had to show out. So before the cold weather hit us I decided to search way in my closet to see what I could dig up. Two summers ago I purchased this floral print blouse from Old Navy, only because it was on clearance. I never intended to wear it with nothing but a pair of jeans. I never was the type to wear floral print, I dunno it just screams plus size to me. Today as I was getting ready to toss it into my Goodwill pile, the bold orange and blue stems spoke loud begging me for another chance. So I paired it with this royal blue maxi skirt that I purchased from Ross (I couldn't leave it because it gave me that Kenya Moore "Gone With The Wind Fabulous" feeling!) Threw on some accessories, a little BB Cream and lipstick and was out on the town turning up!! I think I did the summer proud with this one and I think I found a new staple piece with this maxi!

I'm Finally Ready to Say Welcome

Well Hello There!!

I’m Tonae :) Like most girls I dream of being blessed with Giuseppe shoes, Chanel handbags, or even a simple $5,000 shopping spree to Forever 21…I mean is that really too much to ask for??  But like most people my age (I’m 24) I’m pretty sure your wallet has more responsible things in mind. I’m all for the challenge of creating the look without spending top buck for it. I am a lover of all things thrifted or on sale. I’m not going to lie I splurge from time to time too tehe…

Let’s get personal since we are becoming friends and all! I am a size 16/18, XL shirt, and a Size 8.5 or 9 in shoes (I have some chubby little feet but I’m sure most of you all share my pain.) Lol.…

So much for a formal introduction right!!

I’m aware that there are TONS of “FAT”shion bloggers out here typing their little fingers away and showing their finds to all who wants to see (I know because I spend many sleepless nights exploring them!) I’ve put off starting a blog for the past year and I finally told myself to strap on my big girl panties and give this thing a try.. So here goes nothing.. As I evolve and continue to grown and mature, I hope my blog does too. As much as I think it's important to be represented, to have places for plus girls to go to see great looking girls in inspiring clothes that look like them, I want my readers to come in all sizes and I appreciate that girls (and boys) size 0 or 28 understand what I'm about and wearing.

I'm looking forward to sharing more with you! What I do, what I like, what pieces I need in my life, the people that are giving me life and OF COURSE WHAT I’M WEARING!! This is my personal style blog but will include natural hair, beauty, lifestyle and whatever else tickles my fancy. There’s so much more I want to say but until next time. KEEP IT CUTE!
