Move Over, Moto

I never thought I would wear a moto vest! Seriously. It's so not my style. But that is what I love about style, we can constantly be adapting our style to accommodate new items in our closets so that they seamlessly fit.

What is one thing that "isn't you" but you love? Have you tried it yet?


Styling Off the Shoulder!

Hey babes!
Styling an off-the-shoulder top could feel constricting, like you can only really pair it with some awesome denim....but you could layer it under a pinafore for an added kick to your outfit! I love my ASOS denim pinafore and with this gauze off-the-shoulder crop top!

How are you styling your off the shoulder tops this spring?

Denim Days

Last week I picked up this dress on clearance from Old Navy and couldn't wait to wear it! Denim is really having a moment in my life (and the fashion world) and I am drawn to anything denim- skirts, dresses, jackets. I have never seen a denim swing dress and I was reluctant to even try it on in an XXL at Old Navy, because usually their button up stuff doesn't fit over my hips. Surprise! It did. 
When it doubt ( or even if you just really, really like it), try that sh!@ on! 
You never know! 
As a plus-sized lady who thrifts frequently, I've learned that size is really just a number. Regardless if it looks way too small or way too big, you should try it on! I've found so many unexpected goodies in "straight sizes" or even straight size stores that fit well. It's all about the fit. Not about the size.

Style Tip: Pair interesting socks with shoes for spring and let lace or mesh peep out! It's one of my favorite ways to update a good shoe!


I've been looking for a new place to get my hair cut & colored, a year. I recently went to Skullz Salon in Kent, OH and had my hair chopped off! I feel kinda naked, honestly. I always go through stages of growing my hair and then cutting it all off to start fresh, but I'm really loving the bob my stylist gave me. Are you guys as picky as I am about who does your hair? I think I found "the one"! I have another appt. scheduled Wednesday to get it colored lighter! 

PS- Shout out to my girl, Macey, for taking these pics of me. She's a fellow fashion merchandising student like me, and she just started her sassy blog here. Please go check it out and say hey! 

Missed some videos? I uploaded two new videos last week. I did a review and lookbook of the GabiFreshxSwimSexy line! Check it out and subscribe below!

M A X I in Winter

One thing I love about winter is how versatile our entire closet becomes. Before I learned how to layer and make the most of what I currently have, I would've never put on a maxi skirt in winter. But now, I see how elegant or casual this can actually make an outfit. For those extra chilly days, I suggest throwing on thick tights or leggings underneath and rocking a good boot! But, if you live in warm don't have to do that ;)
