Pretty in Pink

Friday and Saturday off meant a weekend trip to Charlotte to eat, shop, and party with friends. Nordstrom Rack was having a large shoe size sale event over the weekend, which was perfect! Sizes 10½ and up were all like $49. I had 4 pairs of platform peeptoes stacked in my arms, but I could only choose one. I snagged one of the MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj lipsticks with the matching Magenta liner, which enhances the bright pink. The liner can be worn with other MAC pinks like Pink Nouveau and even Snob! I snagged this dress from DOTS (believe it or not) for $24. I'm a definite high and low shopper. Wherever I find something cute, I'll definitely buy it. I paired my dress with peep toe Steve Madden chunky heels and tribal print gold earrings. I love how the couches in the VIP booths at Caviar match my outfit!

Valentine's Day

Hope you all had a very happy and sweet Valentine's Day. I didn't have a Valentine, but my mom sent me a package consisting of cards from my parents and brothers, Godiva truffles, Bath and Body Works goodies, and some other really random stuff. I don't ever trip about not having a Valentine because a relationship is the last thing on my mind. Did your boyfriends spoil you rotten? I spent my Valentine's day in class and then a 4 hour "Alive at 25" driving class for a speeding ticket I got a few months ago. Adorned in all black and a Ruby Woo lip, I felt like a Valentine's vixen. I told you all I am obsessed with all black attire.

Adele Covers Vogue

A Vogue cover and six Grammys, Adele is winning. After facing some criticism, from Karl Lagerfeld saying she has a pretty face, but she's too fat, Adele is on top of the charts! I love Adele, from her sultry voice, flawless makeup, to her love of dark clothing. She is such a great role model for women in the plus size community. Like myself, she stays true to herself and doesn't care what society has to stay. She looked absolutely stunning (look at her milky skin) in her full editorial in the March issue of Vogue. That cat winged eye and Oscar de la Renta are such great looks. It's going to be interesting to hear her new music now that she has a newfound love. Take that Karl! Did you all see her Grammy performance last night?

Campus & Clasroom Chic

I was leaving class last Thursday and saw one of my favorite girls, Ashley, sitting in the student union looking absolutely chic! I have always adored her unique style. Any girl who wears the same size shoe (12) as me will always have a special place in my heart. She told me that her entire outfit was thrift store finds. The epitome of looking fashion forward and not having to break the bank. From Ashley's high bun to her snakeskin Nine West mary-janes, this look is flawless. As far as me, well, I'm in this all black phase until further notice.

Golden Kisses

Tuesday morning, I heard a knock on my door at 8:04 in the morning and I was not getting out the bed to investigate. I was pissed because my alarm was set to wake me up at 9:15 to get ready for my 11 o'clock class. I thought it was the maintenance crew wanting to do some routine work in my apartment, so I opened the door to see if they left something. I look around and see a huge package sitting to the right of my door. Excitement and giddiness overwhelmed me because I knew the package was from Torrid and the goodies were delivered a day early! I picked the box up and hugged it like a new puppy and carefully opened the packaging tape.  Each item I wished for was perfectly wrapped in plastic all neat and folded. Because I was going to class, I wore some of the pieces - Black Ponte Seamed Leggings, Black Ruched-Sleeve Blazer, Ivory Gold Foil Lips Tank Top, and Multifaceted Disco Two Tone Hoops. Of course my favorite over-the-knee boots, Michael Kors watch, and a Ruby Woo lip completed the look.
