    Pearls x Sneakers…

    As an official office chic, it is safe to say that when it comes to fashion, I would rather “suffer” in style than have it any other way especially for an outing however, I have my causal/off days where anything goes and wearing sneakers is bliss. For this occasion, I wanted a blend of a sporty and classy look hence I combined both aesthetics to create a super casual yet super chic look that can easily transition from day to night. For added oomph, I embellished the sneakers with motifs which in turn a basic white sneaker to something edgier with a sense of humour. On the another note, wearing…

    SHERO…

    By all standards and definitions, a hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements and/or noble qualities however, in this present day society, this definition isn’t as gender neutral as one would expect hence, women in the bid to take back their awesomeness have coined Β their own term Shero (a perfect blend of she as a pronoun and hero) beautiful right.. For plus size Queens, this is very personal to us because everyday is a challenge which we overcome victoriously. We are challenged to face people who do not understand why we are happy with our size, people who want to categorize us, stereotypical minded…
