One of the reasons why Fall fashion is my favorite is because of all of it’s beautiful colors. The Fall palette is hands down the best collection of colors and shades. All of the earth tones, rust and burnt oranges, as well as the rich jewel tones make the most basic clothing come to life. There’s something very luxe and chic about Fall fashion that is unlike any other season. Although it is not Fall quite yet, fashion is always ahead so I’m sure you’ve noticed that you have no problems finding Fall trends. Retail stores start putting the next season’s items out as early as August so now, it is all about Fall/Winter.

As I mentioned in previous posts, there is always this conflict of wearing the next season’s trends, but still wanting to be functional for the current climate. Los Angeles is still very warm so I cannot even think of wearing moto jackets, dusters, or anything of the sort. This look, I feel, is a great blend and a possible solution to that problem. Olive is obviously one of the quintessential colors of Fall so doing a full monochromatic look is very on trend. However, wearing a mesh top and pencil skirt still make it cool and breathable for these warm temperatures. It’s functional and trendy!

TrendyCurvy Travels: NYFW 2019

My bags are still unpacked and I’m living out of suitcases but, it’s time for another New York Fashion Week recap! This is my third year attending the NYFW/CurvyCon combo and I have so much to share. I get so excited for this time of year for many reasons. One is that there is nothing like New York during fashion week. It is filled with so many trendsetting fashionistas and I get so inspired about my own style. The other reason is that year after year, fashion is getting more and more diverse. And I mean that across the board – from size, to age, racially and even people with disabilities. It is so encouraging to see and it makes me feel as though we are moving in the right direction.

So without further adieu, let’s get into this recap.

New York City Hotel

This is my second time staying at AKA Wall Street and it is definitely my favorite hotel in New York at the moment. The rooms are set up like studio apartments equipped with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom area. It’s chic, sleek and a great place to unwind from the busy NYC streets. Plus, the customer service is so amazing. From the front desk clerk to the bellman, everyone is so hospitable and attentive. I highly recommend.

The CurvyCon

CurvyCon is literally a breath of fresh air. If you haven’t been, you are really missing out on an amazing experience. To walk in a room of so many women that look like you and share the same sentiments as you is something you really can’t describe. And the fact that it was created by plus size women just sends it over the top. Bravo to Chasity & Cece for another incredible year!

I was overwhelmed with the love and kind words that I received while there. Every hug and picture that I took I truly cherish. Thank you for being so kind and for being such a great online community!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that I have been in New York for Fashion Week and CurvyCon these past few days. It always is a great time to celebrate fashion and plus size at the same time. One thing that I take away from this trip every year is how inspired I am about fashion. The city is marked with the most fashionable trend setters from across the globe. You can’t help but just to soak it all in and think about how you can translate to your own style. Although I have my own aesthetics of which I love and work for me, it’s always good to try new things.

One of the hottest trends that I have been seeing everywhere undoubtedly is animal print. Any and every type of animal print that you can think of from snake skin, to the classic leopard and even tiger stripes. Animal prints are always popular for Fall, but this season, it seems like it’s heightened even more.

So this skirt is perfectly in line with what is trending at the moment. I love a good pleated skirt and the print just takes this to the next level. The snake print is subtle but it is highlighted by this beautiful color. I’ve always dressed rather simply so today is no different. I paired the skirt with a black crop top and high heels sandals. However, I can’t wait to turn this into an even more Fall look once the temperatures go down and pair it with a moto jacket and some chic booties.

Dare to Jump

Oh jumpsuits, how I love thee! Jumpsuits are an outfit all-in-one that never ceases to look chic and effortless. During the Fall especially, jumpsuits become a staple in my wardrobe. I love the versatility of them as well as their ease of wear. Because of that, they are great Summer-to-Fall transition pieces. You can add layers on top of a jumpsuit and you can easily swap out sandals for pumps or booties.

One of the things that I enjoy the most about jumpsuits is that you are never too over or under dressed. They are my go-to for those times where I’m unsure of the attire or what type of clothing I should wear. In those moments, you can never go wrong with reaching for a jumpsuit. It is as classic and timeless an an LBD.

This particular jumpsuit from New York & Company, I could not resist. The color alone is just divine and such a beautiful shade for the Fall palette. Plus, I saw that the fabric has some stretch to it, which is always essential in my case. I decided to take a chance and order an XXL online. As you can see, it fit perfectly! It has just the right amount of stretch to conform to my curves and fit in all the right places. Since temperatures are still warm, it’s great that the jumpsuit is sleeveless. However in the later months, I can add a moto jacket or a blazer to be more appropriate for the weather.
