What season is it?

Helloooo guys!

Happy Sunday, so this will probably be the last blog post of 2015, I do not think I’ll have time to sqeeze another one in this coming week. Can you believe 2015 is almost over?! I can’t! Anyhow, hopefully in 2016 I can devote more time to blogging and I would like to relaunch my website and make it much better than it is now.

Anyhow, Let’s get started shall we? So the weather here has been CRAZY! It’s been so warm like 60s-70s. So for this blog post I wore my Denim Chambray top from Eshakti. Perfect top for this unseasonably warm weather. It is lightweight and fits perfectly because I got it custom made to my measurements. If you haven’t heard about Eshakti, read my other blog post about them, they are an amazing company!. Since today was a casual day at the park just enjoying the weather, I wore denim on denim and my favorite tan boots. These boots are so old, but for a similar pair, try DSW or Justfab.

Work Wednesday !

Hi guys!

I meant to post this last night but wasn’t able to. Time just goes by so fast doesn’t it? Well this is my 2nd work Wednesday blog. Today I made one of my weekend casual looks work appropriate. The pants are jogger pants and I usually wear them on the weekend with some sandals. For work I just added a blazer and heels. Adding a blazer and heels can transform most outfits from being super casual to either work appropriate or for going out for a night on the town.

Here is the look when I wear it on the weekend.


And here it is when I added the blazer and heels for work.

Blazer is from target but a cuter one can be found here.

Bag is Ann Klein, here it is in yellow.

Pants are Eshakti and this was my first time getting pants from them. I love them, perfect for summer because the material is cool and breathes. They don’t have anymore in this design, but here is a similar pair.



  
  

That time I met Zubaidah …

Hi guys!!! If any of you follow me on instagram or facebook, then you have already seen that I got to model some of Styled by Zubaidah’s spring dresses. I met her at a convention not only did I get to wear a couple of her fabulous dresses, I also got a little impromptu interview. I was super excited because I have been following Styled by Zubaidah on Insta for awhile and I love her dresses. Here is my mini interview and pictures:

Who is Styled by Zubaidah? Do you know? Zubaidah originally started her company selling unique jewelry. Now she sells women’s fashion and specializes in selling sizes 12-22. How amazing is that? A company especially for us curvier women, because guess what, we want to look fashionable too!! Not only does Zubaidah run her company designing beautiful women’s fashion she is also a wife and mommy and has a full time job outside of running this business. A woman after my own heart! I asked her about her background and what made her want to start this company.

When asked about her clothing she said, she likes to make things that have some stretch to it. Stretchy material is great for curvier women,  she wants to make sure the clothes fit comfortably.

I asked her how does she build up clientele. Her response was mostly word of mouth and events. She has a quality product that people want to spend their money on, and its modest. For example, the cardigans I’m wearing in the pictures wasn’t sheer, so would not require much layering especially during the hot summer.  She does post on social media as well.

Lastly I asked her what is her biggest challenge-? Like a true designer, her answer was, redefining , staying relevant, having things that fit the curvier women that they will feel comfortable in. Doing this AND being a mother  (finding the time for it all). However, even with these challenges, she loves it and does it for the pleasure of her lord. Providing women with clothes that they can feel beautiful in, while still maintaining their modesty.

I am great full I got to meet Zubaidah and I look forward to meeting up with her again in the near future iA!

Now, how about these dresses and cardigans? They are all available here.

FASHION BLOGGER FRIDAY

Happy Friday!!!!

So on my instagram page I have been doing something called Fashion blogger Fridays. My take on #fbf, instead of flashback Fridays.  Today I thought, why not post on my blog as well for those of you who do not follow me on IG or FB, I can still share these wonderful bloggers with you! Normally I will post one about one fashion blogger each Friday, but today I will post all of the bloggers that I have posted the past few weeks to catch you all up. Today I featured Fabhima She is one of my most favorite fashion bloggers. Her sophisticated chic style is so fabulous and gives homage to style icons from the 50s and 60s. She pulls off styles that I wish I could ! Her instagram page is @fabhima, or you can check out her blog here.140

Deeqa is the very first fashion blogger that I featured for FBF. She is one of the most unique fashion bloggers I have found so far.  Her style in her own words can be described as “authentic, creative and bold”. She wears a lot of vintage looks and many of them are self made.  She pulls her inspiration from her mother’s closet, Audrey Hepburn, and Sarah Jessica Parker.  Her blog can be found here.136

Leena was one of the first fashion bloggers I started following. I love her style, its impeccable.  Not only is she one of the cutest bloggers out there, she’s so sweet.  She answered my questions since I’m new to blogging (whereas some bloggers totally ignore you lol). Beautiful and caring, great combo! Her blog is found here.137

 

I like to get ideas and inspiration from all kinds of bloggers. This day I featured Tanesha. Her blog was named best curvy blog in 2012 and she has a collection as well. I love her blog because if you see something you like you can buy it from her website. Also she is tall and curvy so when she wears something I can kind of have an Idea what it might look like on me. Love seeing other curvy bloggers! Her blog can be found here.138

Audrey I happened to randomly stumble upon while going through my instagram feed and followed her after just seeing one picture.  On top of being so adorable, I love her style.  I feel like in a way we are a bit similar in that we don’t fit into one specific kind of style, but take from different styles to put together stylish outfits.  I also like that she is studying to be a journalist (totally would I would have done in my other life!).  Her blog can be found here.139

I hope you guys enjoy these installments of FBF! When I find things that I like, I love to share, so check out these guys 🙂
