Falling For Fall Previews!

Fall1

 

Hi Friends!

I know what you’re thinking, it’s summer, “why on earth are you talking about Fall?!”  Listen, it’s August,  if I’m struggling to find a new maxi dress it’s time to think about the cozy sweaters I will be wearing in just over a months time.  I recently had the chance to check out the fall collection from Addition Elle and I’m excited! Here’s a look at my must have pieces for fall!

I must have this Camo jacket.  My friend @MrTimChan will approve this purchase for sure he’s been on me for over a year to get one.  I think this is it!  Loves it!

I love everything about this outfit.  I will probably steal the whole look for myself and I won’t feel bad about it!  I can see myself sipping tea in this one while in the park watching the dogs play.

My Fave 5 Over A Size 6!

In lights of yesterday’s post, today I thought I would share with you my fave five cool people who aren’t a size 6.  All of these people take the cake!  In particular order here they are!

Queen Latifah!  I love this woman.  She’s beautiful, business savvy, always stylish and everything I would like to be when I grow up.  Plus – people always say that I look like her and that’s not a bad thing.

Adele. This lady has the voice of an angel, fearless fashion sense and a hilarious mischievous side.  In my head we would be BFF, smoke cigarettes and cat call boys!

Beth Ditto As the Lead singer of The Gossip, Beth is crazy talented.  Her, I don’t give a f%@$, attitude about her size makes me love her more.  I wish I could be as fearless and confident as she is.

Jill Scott Ms. Scott is probably one of, if not, the nicest person I’ve ever met.  She oozes confidence and warmth like no ones business and looks great in just about everything.

Lena Dunham – Lena is probably a six, or smaller, but she makes the list anyway.  She’s started a conversation with her show Girls.  She’s embraced and celebrated the fact that, even though she doesn’t look like the average Hollywood starlet, she is still has a place in tinsel town as a sex symbol.

Who are some of your fave celebs over a size 6?  Share in the comments!

Look Of The Day

 REDEMPTION!  Yesterday I posted about how disappointed I was in my outfit of choice. Since I didn’t have a Throwback Thursday pic to share , I thought I would share how I made up for my poor choice in fashion, with my look of the day!

My favourite things!

Now that I’ve got a few posts under my belt I thought I would feature a few of my favourite things.  Here are my Top 5 must haves!

First things first!  I’m not a huge lingerie person but I do believe in good undergarments.  Bras, panties, body slimmers you know.  My hands down favourite bras are from Lane Bryant.  The Cacique line has yet to fail me.  They have great colours and fits with a variety of styles.  The Cacique cotton plunge bra is my absolute fave!  It’s comfy and lifts the girls way up where they belong.

Keeping with undergarments my fave slimmers are…duh!  SPANX!  Everyone needs Spanx in their life.  They are worth every penny and they really do take you down a size and smooth out all your problem areas.  Buy your correct size and these things are totally comfortable and they don’t cut off your air supply after meals.

Next up hosiery. I have to stick with Hue.  Hue hosiery comes in a variety of colours and like Spanx if you buy your size you can live in them all day and night!

 

So now you have my top 3!  Moving on to denim and pants.  I’m almost 6 feet tall and find it hard to find pants that come in a tall girl length.  Right now I’m really feeling Torrid black skinny denim.  These pants fit like a glove and flatter like nobodies business! Bonus – they regularly go on sale.

My final fave for tonight is totally cosmetic.  I’m in love with Clinique Dark Spot Corrector.  It makes my face glow and clears up any dark marks left from the occasional blemish.  It’s not bleaching but you really should wear sunscreen with it.  This is a must buy!

What do you think of my faves?  What are some of your must haves?
