Hey Dolls, 
A while back I started a new series called "The Curvy Copycat". These posts will display designer looks re-created and rocked by yours truly. This look was inspired by one of my faves...BALMAIN!

Army Green Tank Dress: Swak Designs (sold out in this color. similar here)
Belt: Asos Curve (sold out)
Skirt: Jones New York (old)
Shoes: (old)
Choker: Vintage
Gold Cuff: Target

Here are a couple of Instagram pics of my vintage choker necklaces. Balmain uses amazing chokers in his collections and I'm set on finding me a Balmain dupe! ;-)

 Stay tuned for more of "The Curvy Copycat!"

With Love,
Kiah

TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Hey Dolls, 
I know it's hard for some of us to admit that we have a bit of rebel housed deep within us but I'm certain we all do. Oh come on - there's no need to be ashamed of it. You know you do! I'm not bringing this out to pump you with the courage to go out and do something crazy in order to prove to yourself (or others) that YES, you are indeed a rebel without a cause. ha-ha 

I actually have a great option! Embrace your wild side with animal print. There is something so fun and fierce about wearing animal print. Personally I like to go big with print but for those of you that don't an animal print bag adds the perfect hint of edgy fabulousness to any outfit.
I've been rocking this Animal Print Hobo (provided by Jessica London) daily for the past couple of weeks (it's amazing how leopard tends to match everything) and let me tell you...I LOVE IT! You would never guess that this bag is not real leather. It's huge with 3 compartments and has pockets for your phone, keys, etc. The chain detailing is super cute and I always receive compliments.
It got a bit chilly this past weekend and I rocked my hobo on the black side with this outfit. What a great piece to add to your collection!
With LOVE,
Kiah

FALL INSPIRATION: COLOR BLOCKING

Hey Dolls, 
I know that the color blocking trend has been around for a while and so is nothing new - but when I saw this look from Kate Spade's Fall 2014 show...I died! 

I was so inspired that I took to shopping my closet to create my own interpretation of the look. Note to self: find a plus size version of this amazing green jacket and make my way to Kate Spade for these gloves and shoes! 


Unfortunately all of the items used to create this look are old so they are no longer available.

Hat: h&m
Jacket and Gloves: Lane Bryant
Jumpsuit: DKNYC
Shoes: Antonio Melani

With LOVE,
Kiah

TWICE AS NICE

Hey Dolls, 
I've had this peplum top and skirt for like EVER! I decided to pair the two and make the peplum twice as nice. After realizing how long they had went missing in the black hole that I call a closet, I made myself a promise to dress up more. It really just doesn't make any type of sense to have all of this stuff and never wear it.

On a personal note my family's schedule has been off the chain with both my hubby and daughter returning to school. In addition, my daughter has advanced to the senior performing ensemble at her dance academy and has dance classes 3 times per week! My husband also teaches classes twice a week at our church. If that ain't enough, I work a full-time job. WHEW! Momma tired but God is good and He gives me the strength that I need to make it.

Asos Limited Edition Big Faux Pearl Choker Necklace (sold out)
Shoes from H&M (old)

With LOVE,
Kiah
