Jaye & The Holograms

As a 80's baby, Saturday Morning Cartoons was a way of life. I watched everything from GI Joe, Transformers, Thundercats, He-Man, She-Ra, the list goes on. One could say that I was a TV junkie, but hey there were a lot of good shows back then. One of my all time favorites was Jem & the Holograms. I loved watched Jerrica and the crew running a music company and selling out shows. This look is the perfect combination of Jen & Jerrica, fun, professional, and pink.

This season the pleated skirt (irregardless of the length) has become the must have skirt. I was on the hunt for a silver metallic skirt, but could not find one in plus. Gunmetal- yes, but silver, not at all. Then I was browsing the new arrivals from Fullbeauty, and found it- yes a silver metallic skirt!!! I ordered it with the quickness and checked the skirt off my list. When it arrived in the mail, I noticed it was much more than a silver skirt. It was holographic. Yup, the perfect silver metallic skirt was a holographic silver skirt. Immediately Jem came to mind, and I was like you know what, this is the best of both worlds. It's cool enough for Jerrica to wear during the day and funky enough for Jem to wear on stage. One could not be happier with this Jessica London skirt. 

My turtlenecks are still in heavy rotation, and this one from Violeta c/o Mango is a great staple to have. I wish their clothing came higher than a 20, but they do make well made staples that you can wear forever. The skirt has blue & pink undertones so I decided to wear my pink heels and moto jacket. I ended out the look with another hologram piece, my oldie but goodie purse.

Leather Lover

Leather, fur- these are some of my favorite things. Though faux leather and fur have come a long way, when I am able to find real leather pieces in my size, I am extremely happy. One of the latest brands I have been raving about- Ellos makes plus size leather items. Cue the Snoopy Happy Dance! I love having options, and no matter what size you wear, options to wear great items should always be accessible. Fullbeauty is definitely on my list of resources when I am looking for great items. 

Currently the brand has a leather top and pants. Though the leather pants were calling my name, I decided to go with the leather top. I went with the top for several reasons. First, I have been adding more versatile tops into my wardrobe. With all of the pants and jeans I have been in love with and bought over the past several months, I needed a great top that can stand out, but play nice with others. A black leather top does that hands down. With leather items, I always suggest sizing up. I went with a size 20, so that I had enough room in the arms and across my chest. What I love about this- besides being leather, is that the length of this top is perfect. It's hits perfectly at my hip, so you can wear it like I did with a pair of jeans, or tuck it into your favorite skirt. The options are endless. Second reason to go with a leather top- warmth. It's getting cold in NYC, and items that make  you look good but can keep you warm are a must have. 

While we are on the topic of staying warm, I wanted to share this great coat. If you follow me on Snapchat (@styleoversize) I tried on this coat at the Ellos Fall Preview, and immediately fell in love. Coats in the winter time are how I make a statement. It's a great way to incorporate color, or a print. I love a good leopard print, and this coat would be a great addition to any woman's closet. If you all about a good coat, I suggest this one. If leopard is not your speed, the coat does come in black. There is also a belted version that comes in burgundy that is cute as well. There are plethora of coats out there for us. If you want color, rock color, if you want black, rock black. There are more options than ever that having you looking great without breaking the bank. Trust me there are out there, and once you find that one coat that makes you feel fancy, you will never want to take it off. 

Are you all about leather, or are you a fur lady? Perhaps sequins? Let me know in the comments. Until next time lovers! Muah!


I'm so happy that it is Memorial Day Weekend!! The temps are heating up, the sun is shining, and this blogger is ready to hang out. I love jacket/moderately warm weather. The type of weather that makes you sing "A Long Walk" by Jill Scott as you cruise around with a boo, or just chill at a waterfront bar and chat about nothing. When I saw this Fashion to Figure dress, it had me dreaming of all the lovely spots I can attend afterwork and on the weekend and look amazing.

The Nantucket dress is a great piece to add to your wardrobe. It's lightweight and made of a nice soft material that can easily take you from work to happy hour. The stripe placement makes a statement, and you can never go wrong with a fit & flare. A dress like this is my go to when I am getting ready for work. I always want to make an impact, while still keeping it cute and above all else - to be comfortable. Dresses like these are versatile, you can wear it with so many things and make each look your own. I went with a pair of flatforms from Mango, but you can wear these with a killer heel or a pair of Stan Smith's and still slay. 

I have been looking for the right pair of flatforms for a while, and when I browsing for shoes on Fullbeauty's site, and saw these, they were immediately added to the cart. I wanted a pair that were multifunctional- the one's I would come across were too casual to wear to work, or too over the top. These I feel are a perfect balance of pretty and casual. I can wear these with dresses, jeans, practically anything in my wardrobe. Navy pairs well with everything, so I have now found my new summer shoe. I wore these all day and not once did I want to take them off. Added bonus, the 2.75 platform gives me a little height (owwww). You have been warned, I will be wearing these a lot.

Cute dress- check, cute shoes- double check. Only thing left is a nice statement necklace, and a handbag. For work, I like to carry something that can hold all my essentials. This Dooney & Bourke handbag has been in my arsenal for years, and it continues to look good throughout the season. Definitely make sure you have a navy bag. It goes with everything like a black bag, but it gives a pop of color with other neutrals or can be the neutral when wearing color. Well now that I am all dressed to enjoy the beautiful weather, I want to hear from you. What are you planning to wear now that the unofficial start of summer is here?
