    The Peplum…

    As opposed to common belief, peplums aren’t every curvy girl’s best friend. Most of them don’t really hide the “problem areas” as much we would want them to. Over the years, peplums and I have had a love hate relationship, the waist line wouldn’t hug me properly and the peplum itself always felt like it was trying too hard however, over time we have reached an understanding Β and it works beautifully with my frame. If I may say so, out of all the silhouettes in my closet, the peplum is one that always stays in trend. Its silhouette is extremely versatile in terms of how it can be styled: pants,…

    Date Night…

    It is no news that I am a bonafide jumpsuit loyalist. I love them!! Not only are they an easy outfit pick as they flatter my body type but they are also very flexible for one to wear whichever way they want to. Today’s pick wasΒ a little tricky because of the cold shoulder design (I have broad shoulders) but I made it work, balancing my upper bodyΒ with a shroud hence givingΒ my body dimension and wearing a pop of color on my feet to give the illusion of length. This outfit can be worn anywhere depending on the accessories one uses. You can either make it luxe or causal.. So, queens…
