Turban to the rescue

 There are moments when styling my hair takes me to a complete dark side. I get inpatient, my hands get sweaty and I'm sure I'm not in the best of moods.  But today was a little different.  After completely giving up on getting my hair to work this morning I started looking for something to mask my not so cute mane. I knew I had a scarf that I bought sometime ago and decided to try out a turban look.   A twist there and a tuck there and this is what I got.  Would you try the turban look?  If you've already dived into this look I would for you to share them with me on my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Forget Me Not

So here's the story.  I'd put my Michael Kors printed dress in the cleaners almost a century ago.  Not sure why but I had completely forgot about it up until last week.  When it finally dawned on me I quickly hurried over to the cleaners to retrieve it.  I make it over to the cleaners and was met with this from the cleaners attendant, "I started to call you about this dress.  We had a few ladies that wanted to buy it from us."  I quickly answered " Are you kidding me".  "Nope" he quickly snaps back.  Wow!  One more day and my lovely frock may have been sold to the highest bidder.  Yikes.

A Girl in a Plus Size World

Tajuana Shyanne 

Plus size fashion has come a long way. From elastic waist jeans and mumuus, to fitted tops and skinny jeans.  It's about damn time the fashion industry realized that we like to look cute and fashionable too. Skinny chicks (no offense) aren't the only ones who can work an outfit.I must admit, I wasn't always comfortable with being plus size. Like so many women, I would wear baggy clothes to try and hide my body. When in reality I was only making myself look bigger. Once I embraced my curves, I started to have fun with fashion.  My best fashion advice for ALL women is to wear clothes that flatter your specific body type. I can't stand to see a woman who could have it going on, if only her shirt or pants were a little bit bigger.Some of my curvy girl inspiration comes from blogs such as this one (I'm not just saying that bc she's my homegirl LOL), gabifresh.com, & donnadaily.com, just to name a few. Just because a blog is not catered to plus size fashion, doesn't mean you can't get great ideas from it and tailor them to fit your own personal style. So for all you curvy girls who may feel you cannot rock the latest fashion trends, I want you to grab a friend, get out the house, and try some stuff on. Then repeat after me...I'm Curvy, Natural, & Loving It!

Happy Birthday Ms. Fierce!

So here we are. One year and some eighty posts later.  My does time fly when your busy blogging.  This time last year I had settled into my apartment for the evening and was crawled up on my couch with  laptop in hand, drafting my first post for this thing called,  I wanna be fierce.   I had no real expectations for my new found adventure because I really had no idea of what to expect from this world of blogging.  The only thing I knew for sure was that I had become some what of a stalker   (yup not ashamed to admit it), frequenting my favorite blogs almost daily.  The thought of starting a blog of my own had played in my mind quite a few times but was always met with no action.  But on this night it was different.  I moved my fingers swiftly against the keyboard  and conjured up a quick introduction and with one click my first post was live in the land of cyberspace.  Just like that my blogging journey began .  I must say this year has been one of those unforgettable experiences.  Some of my highlights:  Attending NY Fashion Week (story here), being honored with spotlights from Vibe Vixen, Stylish Curves, and 4-Lexi.  Meeting some awesome bloggers and most importantly interacting with you guys.  My readers, supporters, friends, family, blogging buddies, subbies, and followers. Thank You Beauties!  Thank You for your time, comments, tweets, likes and your overall genuine support. I appreciate each and every one of you and hope you'll continue to follow me on my fierce journey.   Until next time beauties.

Flare it out

When it comes to flare pants I can't help but associate them with the seventies.  It instantly reminds me of that era.  A time where it seemed all was carefree and everyone and their first born was a hippie.    Well I dived into my inner flower child today and donned my Loft flare trousers.  My hair was pretty basic with a "little house on the prairie" twist down and a striped Tee.

At it again

Hola Kiddos!  I've been at it again.  Yes, thrifting. On my recent trips to the Salvation Army and The Goodwill I was able to round up some goodies for the soon to come summer months.  As usual I'd thought I'd share what I walked away with. Go ahead and take a peek!
