Style Trend that I Love... Skinny Jeans and Heels

I have been loving this trend every since I first saw it. I love the way skinny jeans look, they still show off your shape and can be worn with several styles of shoes. I like skinny jeans paired with boots but I love skinny jeans paired with high heels. It looks so chic. It's a casual look but the heels add glam and can make your outfit dressy.

Unfortunately, as much as I love this style I haven't found the perfect pair of skinny jeans to fit me to my liking. I'm plus sized down bottom and curvy. I've found skinny jeans at a store called the Avenue but they aren't true skinny jeans-they're more of straight leg jeans that fit wonderfully around my waist and hips but they're not tapered at the bottom... they flare out. I want the jeans to fit well around my hips and legs but scrunch and taper around my ankles like the pictures show.

I plan to take a trip to Ashley Stewart and Torrid to try on their skinny jeans and hopefully I can find a pair that is inexpensive and to my liking. We'll see...

Monica in skinny jeans, I love her entire outfit!

Beyonce always wears skinny jeans.

Eva Longoria in skinny jeans and nude heels. I love nude heels!

Rihanna in skinny jeans and nude heels!

There is a great fashion and style blog, Stylish Curves, for all of the plus sized and stylish beauties out there :)

Do you wear skinny jeans? Any good recommendations on jeans for a plus size girl like me?

Definitely check out Ashley Stewart. I was able to find a cute pair that fit really good and were inexpensive. Also, I got a pair at Rainbow. Good luck on your search, and I love your blog!

Be Blessed!

I totally forgot about Rainbow, I always find a bargain there.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting skinny jeans from Old Navy. The store sells them up to a size 20 but online they go up to 30.

Thanks Wynter. I didn't know Old Navy had skinny jeans! They always have good sales... so that'll work.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
