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

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2017

OMG, Ipsy finally has a cute bag for the month!
Seriously, this month's coral ticket design bag is super cute and would make a fun little clutch for a night out at a festival or fair.
The items I received this month weren't terrible either. Here's what's inside my bag and my thoughts on each product:
OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush $12 Everything I've received from this company in my Ipsy bad is a full-sized product (nice)! However they need to be in a refillable palette so that may not be your thing but I just found mine recently so this offends me less. This is overall a nice shade so I'll add it to my palette.
Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel $30 This is a little more lightweight than the aloe gel you can get in a giant bottle at CVS but I'm skeptical yet if that makes it worth $30 for a jar. We're going to the beach in May so the timing is good and I'm sure I'll use the whole sample.
No Poreblem Primer $18 This is a nice, lightweight primer and has a …

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!





I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.








I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:






Sephora Play April 2017

This month's Sephora Play box featured some of the top selling Sephora products, here's what's inside:


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
I currently use this primer and it helps my foundation go on smooth and keeps my face from getting too oily during the day. It's light weight and has no scent and one tube lasts a really long time - I bought mine before my wedding and that was six months ago.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL eyeliner
The Make Up For Ever brand is very popular at Sephora and very nice quality products. This eyeliner doesn't smudge and goes on smooth.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream
This is a primer / moisturizer combo and I really like the way it feels - very light weight and makes my skin feel silky

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate
This says it's an "intense exfoliator" but I found it to be very fine. The paste is ather think and a yucky green color with a heavy plant scent, but hey if it works who cares what it looks like.

Sephora Waterproof …

20 Guildelines for Financial Responsibility

As a blogger I constantly worry if I am supporting over consumerism and irresponsible spending. At the end of the day I can say Oh, I LOVE this item and it was so worth it to me but I have to hope that people are making the right decisions based on their own financial situation. But since finance is a passion of mine (it is my day job after all) and since so many of y'all are looking to focus on your own finances in 2019 I thought it might be good to take a step back from fashion and talk about the money honey! I don't claim to have all the answers or to be an expert, but I've learned a lot between my education, my career and to be honest making some bad financial decisions myself so I've complied a list of 20 guidelines for financial success from the basics to saving for the future. The Basics 1. You absolutely must be able to cover the four walls - your home and all utilities and maintenance - and your necessary expenses (food, car, gas) before you can think about…

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…
