My #LBD (little black dress) is not so “little.” In my case, this is more of a “big” black dress. If you google #LittleBlackDress, images of thin (little) women wearing their LBD’s appear. I may have seen one girl that was bigger. I think it would be nice to dedicate a hashtag like #BigBlackDress to use in pictures we take of our black dresses. #BBD has enough different meanings, so that’s out.

I am big, I #CelebrateMySize and #honormycurves with pride. It is an amazingly free feeling to accept the skin you are in. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be a healthier, greater you. Accepting the body you have now is what is most important, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

You can always count on ASOS to acquire the essentials for your wardrobe. Every lady should have at least one #BigBlackDress or (depending on your size) #LittleBlackDress in their closet. Trust me, a black dress can always save you from “I don’t know what to wear” mishaps.

P.S
I newly discovered how beneficial shapewear could be; it gives you that extra boost of confidence, particularly when wearing bodycon fits!

If you are currently not a proud owner of a trench coat, I am here to tell you… “you need to be”. It is an essential piece to have in your wardrobe. Seriously, it goes with everything, dressed up or down! I am so in love with this new trench coat from ASOS CURVE. I never thought I was a “trench girl”, but apparently I am! I have a feeling I will get a lot of looks out of this baby.

P.S
I am sooo ready for new hair. I’m thinking blonder, shorter, sleeker…

You cannot go wrong with a white button up, seven7 distressed jeans from Lane Bryant, slicked back hair, and a pair of Steve Madden slip-ons. Sometimes, it is best to simplify your look, and don’t forget a bold lipstick, it adds a certain je ne sais quoi .

Have a good weekend, be happy and enjoy the sunshine.
