It's been a while since I rocked a sexy LBD. I was in a fashion emergency and had nothing to wear, so my friend Aly came to the rescue bringing tons of options to my apartment. She had a basket full of dresses and I had my eye on this black crochet dress she rocked before. The dress had plenty of stretch and it fit perfectly. (Crazy what a little spandex can do for the fuller figure!) I got so many Instagram comments asking where the dress was from. Aly purchased the dress from Ross earlier this year and some of my followers informed me they found it at T.J. Maxx for as low as $12. I love the mixing textures, so my favorite fringe booties added a nice contrast. Nude lips, big Kim Kardashian hair, and a smokey eye were the finishing touches.

Fall fashion is my favorite because you get to be a lot more creative with layering and textures. I went to a birthday party for a friend last weekend at Tanner's in uptown Charlotte. I was in a casual mood, but still wanted to be glamorous. I paired a white and black sweatshirt (so on trend for the season) with a mesh detail skater skirt. I've had my eye on this "VIP" sweatshirt for a month and was unsure of the fit considering it's from the straight sizes at Forever 21. I was so geeked the size large fit just right. Forever 21 and the plus clothing have been so on trend with the fashion lately. Anyways, white tube socks and grunge, chunky boots with gold details completed my look. My favorite hot pink lipstick, Candy Yum Yum, always adds a pop of color to any monochromatic outfit.

AGGIE PRIDE! If you never experienced a North Carolina A&T State University homecoming, then your life isn't complete! If you search the hashtag #GHOE (Greatest Homecoming on Earth) on Instagram or Twitter, you can the idea of how epic our homecoming is. I celebrated my alumni homecoming over the weekend in style reconnecting with college friends, seeing familiar faces, and capturing memories. I wore a t-shirt dress from Forever 21 (main line) with a chic camouflage jacket from Luxe Vain Boutique. I told you I'm uber obsessed with the athletic wear trend, so the t-shirt dress was perfect. I'm all about attention to details, so my black and nude illusion tights and chunky combat boots completed my look. I can't wait for next year! Follow me on Instagram for more exclusive photos!

I'm so excited to have my long, luscious locks back! I've partnered with Madelyn Virgin Hair. I absolutely love the texture, softness, and very natural look. It blends so well with my hair, which is why I'm a fan of Brazilian hair. I have four bundles of 22", 24", 26", and 28" installed in the Brazilian Body Wave texture. I'm going to add another bundle of 28" for fullness. I always recommend purchasing two bundles of the longest length to achieve a fuller, voluminous look. So far I'm loving the hair. I have experienced just a little shedding, which is common with virgin hair. Stay tuned for my next review once I dye it!
Madelyn Virgin Hair has an exclusive sale for Diary of a Fatshionista readers. Buy two bundles and get a free 18" bundle. The sale ends Sunday at midnight. Couldn't forget about you fatshionistas!
