Draper James Extended Sizes for Fall

Earlier this year I was so very excited when Draper James and Eloquii announced their partnership. I have been in love the with aesthetic of the Draper James brand since the very beginning and was so happy to finally be able to buy clothing in my size! So you can imagine my delight that not only is Draper James continuing to offer items in collaboration with Eloquii but select items are now available in XXL!!! 
 
Here are the latest Draper James x Eloquii Dresses:
And there are some pretty cute tops in the latest collection as well, I recently purchased the polka dot ruffle sleeve tee - I love an elevated tee!


The fall collection also features jeans, leggings and a cute ruffle sleeve jacket, I really want the jacket!

For an

For anyone in the 14 you get the best of both worlds because you can select items from either collection as 14 is typically the highest size Draper James offers. For softer non structured pieces XL and XXL is available meaning ladies 16 to 20 also have a selection beyond the Eloquii items to choose from.

In the fall Draper James releases spirit items perfect for football season in generic colors - red, blue , black and orange. I passed on the sweater during my last visit because I just purchased another sweater but I think I might get it in September when it's closer to being seasonably appropriate for our southern weather. I also really do love the tee the wear under it.
I absolutely LOVE the Draper James Magnolia Print and I have the navy dress which is a structured knit but I love the shape of the ruffle hem - this is more of a cotton tee material and sadly isn't flattering on me but I think the XXL would look great on someone who wears a 16 - 18.


If magnolias aren't your thing there are several other pretty dresses to choose from that are great closet staples

And there are some pretty tops as well - I find the fit on the tops to be generous as they do not tug or pull on my generous sized chest.

Every month  lately I keep telling myself I'm going to buy some clothes from other brands but as long as Draper James keeps offering these beautiful items is extended sizes I'll be shopping

Lane Bryant x Girl With Curves Try On

If you wear a size 12+ unless you aren't on social media you've probably heard that Lane Bryant has launched a 20 piece collaboration with blogger Girl With Curves. With items selling out online on the launch day I knew I had to hurry up if I wanted to see things in store and try them on. 
The in-store display at the Southaven, MS location
The fitting room lighting was not great and while I'm not a fan of the mirror selfies sometimes you've got to work with what you have and I do want to be able to show you how these items fit. But, please don't judge my poor photo quality too much.
The item I wanted the most - like every other curvy girl apparently was the navy blue trench dress and this sold out online and was not in my local store. But, I was able to try on the other items I was most interested in.

The pleated lace black dress had a nice fit and I like how instead of a plain elastic waist it had a faux belt look. I think this dress would look waaaaay better …

Loft Plus Size In Store Launch

Loft recently launched the plus size collection size 16 to 26 in 50 stores across the US. Although I will make a few exceptions I really prefer to shop in person to try on items so I was very excited to hear my local store would be one of the 50 locations offering plus sizes. The Carriage Crossing location in Collierville, TN is the only location in the entire state to feature the collection in store and I was on hand to celebrate in full force at the recent launch party.

The team at Loft Carriage Crossing is so sweet and set up the sweetest in-store celebration.

Cupcakes by Buttercup brought the A game with the sweets - these are so moist and tasty!

Ehblooms provided the most beautiful bouquets in the perfect colors to celebrate fall fashion Sarah Howard with Limelife provided makeovers which was really fun. This was my first time experiencing this makeup line and I loved the pigmentation of the eye shadows - here's my finished look:
But of course we were all there for some fab…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Easy At Home Teeth Whitening

Recently I was asked to submit a headshot and y'all I was so embarrassed - my teeth were yellow! So I decided to use the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system to take care of it - sure I could just edit my photos to make my teeth look white but I'd rather have a bright white IRL smile.
Over the years I have used many whitening products - toothpaste, lights, strips and make at home trays but the reality is no matter how great the solution is getting it to stay on the teeth is the key to whitening and there's simply no match for a custom fit tray - which is exactly what Smile Brilliant offers.

In order to get a custom tray without having to visit the dentist  Smile Brilliant provides the materials needed to make molds of the teeth at home to be sent off for fitting. When I received my kit it came with all the instructions and enough materials to make three molds - this way if I got it wrong on the first try it was no big deal - I had enough materials to try again. Howeve…

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…
