"This collection is for the woman who’s unafraid to be feminine and is looking for something emotional."
-Eyan Allen SVP of Design Lane Bryant

Recently Lane Bryant gave bloggers, press and influences a look at the Fall 2018 collection.  Lane Bryant early fall collections are filled with light, nudes and neutral colors.  I didn't expect a fall collection to be so light and almost spring like.  Maybe its the longer warmer days of last fall or the influx of these colors on Fashion Week runway but Lane Bryant has given a great and lighter collection this Fall.  

Designer Eyan Allen has breathed freshness into Lane Bryant collection for a few seasons now.  Having a background high end designer, you can tell that he is pushing the Lane Bryant women into high fashion through high design.  

This is most prevalent piece in the collection was a little black dress I saw as soon as we walked into the preview.  Its asymmetrical, one sleeve and fabric is a smooth crepe that is sure to move and flow freely over any body.  Needless today I am  in love with this little black dress and I'm sure it will be a huge seller in the fall.

The collection I loved the most  "Chic Style Femme"will be release in September. This collection is filled with black, hot pink, leather and dresses that have  feminine touches.

Overall the collection is great and appeals to a more softer feminine style.  I see a lot of items that can be added to my closet that wont disturb my closet but add to my collection.  Since I have been on a rose gold, blush kick for the past few months, I'm sure anything I pick from this collection will go well with what I have bought from the Spring Collection. 



On September 15th at the Brooklyn Kings Theatre, comedian, actress and Emmy Award-winning host of "The Real" Loni Love hosted Ashley Stewart Finding Ashley Finale.  
This is the second year the plus size store has held this event commencing their country wide search for their representative of their company.  

The event featured performances by  Naughty by Nature, SWVMC Lyte,  Denise "Saucy Wow" Belfon.,  We cant forget about DJ Kid Capri keeping us dancing and grooving all night long.  I got a chance to be in the media pit with the likes of Plus Model Magazine, Queen Size Magazine as well as other bloggers and Influencers. 

It was a start studded night that I started off on the pink carpet.  I got a chance to talk to some of the judges, host, celebrities and guess of Ashley Stewart event.  

In its second year, this was the first year I got to photograph and interview and truthfully, being in the press pit acts up my social anxitey to the 10th power.  But this was one of the most chill press pits I've been in.  Here are some photos of host and events going on outside the event. 

Here are some of my best looks from the finalist.  The best is that all these looks are available at Ashley Sewarts today

After getting a chance to meet with and photograph some of the attendees and special guess we moved inside to have some fun and meet with some of the finalist for this event.

We then headed inside to party

What really was amazing was all the money Ashley Stewarts donated to several charities.  They even gave some Brooklyn HS students money for College.  Y'all know a great education is very close to my heart so I love that they are looking out for the young women and men in our community. 

In the end, we all came to see who was Miss Ashley Stewart 2018.  Congratulations to Tiffany Flamer for winning this year crown.  I honestly couldn't think of anyone who deserves it more.  Not only is she a school teacher but she organized for her town of Chester to come out and support her.  To see that kind of support you know she has done alot for her community if they love her that much.

Welcome to the kick of of Summer 2018!
Rather your at the BBQ, beach, movies or just chillin  playing games with your family and friends, make sure you show up in style.

Below are some quick cute ideas for Memorial Day weekend.

All these looks come in plus size and come up to a size 26-28

BBQ Outfit
Just because there is smoke doesn't mean you don't have to look amazing.  Try out these outfits for a daytime BBQ.

Maxi Dress
I love a great Maxi dress.  Its the perfect way to be dressed up without being dressed up.  I've arrange some casual and not so casual option that are begging to be worn this weekend. 

If your luck and the weather holds out try wearing something that is red white and blue to the beach.  I love two piece suits for days like this.  You can mix and match them later  in the summer to create a whole new suit.  See below for some great bathing suits in plus size this season

No work next day?  Lets party tonight
We don't have to go to work Wednesday so lets hang out tonight.  See below outfits for the best way to spice up a date night or a hot time in the club with your girlfriends.
