I’m a very friendly girl. I don’t throw shade. I’m a lover, not a fighter. I avoid confrontation like the plague. I respect even my adversaries, and I don’t seek revenge… But sometimes you need to show your haters how wrong they are.
What I mean to say is… Sometimes a b*tch just needs to get put in her place!!! Haha!
They need Screw that! SHE needs to know that she will never be better than me because she has an ugly soul, and while she’s talking karma, she’s the one who karma just came back to bite. 😘 (I almost never use Emojis in my posts, but girl, this one’s for you!)
So don’t hate me because I’m beautiful (yes YOU, I know you’re reading this). Love me, because you tried to be me and failed, and that must mean I’m pretty fantastic. 😋 (Oops, there I go again! Hahaaa!)
You need to love how hot I look in this fabulous midi dress from Zelie For She.
Love how crazy dope I look in my earrings from Cristy Ellen K!
Love how sexy I look in the the most absolutely amazing plus size anklets ever, from Ready to Stare! (No but seriously, I know you you’re a fat girl too, so you might wanna know… Just tryna help tho!)
So ladies, don’t ever let anyone try and bring you down!!! Show them how much better you are!!! Rise above it at brush it off… But never be afraid to remind them how ugly their souls truly are, for that is the only way to help them. Let God take care of the karma!
In Haitian Creole we say ‘Wap konn Jòj cherie’ – you’ll get what’s coming to you! Actually, you just did. 😉 (Last one, I promise! Haha!)
I’ve always loved vintage clothing; and there are so many treasures to be found in thrift stores, but stumbling upon great pieces that fit, especially when you’re plus sized, can be tricky.
When I discovered online thrifting for the first time recently (have I been living under a rock?) it was a real breath of fresh air. No more sifting through racks in search of gold amongst the pebbles… It was all right there in front of me, just a click away at divaXpress!
With sizes ranging from small to 3X, as well as accessories and shoes, divaXpress is my new favourite way to thrift!
I was lucky enough to be able to pick out three pieces, and I fell in love with them!!
The first was this fabulous, hunter green coat, reminiscent of every Canadian girl’s mum’s winter getup in the 90s.
Next, was this totally incredible, sequins covered, beaded, rhinestone bedazzled jean jacket, that somehow reminded me of something out of a tacky, old-school country music video, yet I just couldn’t live without! I mean… It’s so awesome!
Loving how well it pairs with my thigh-high boots from SexyPlus, too… Especially a foot deep in the snow! Hehee!
Remember, you need to act fast when you find something you love, because just like with regular thrifting, when it comes to the online variety, the good stuff sells quickly! New pieces are usually posted daily, so there is always something new to check out! Happy online thrifting!!!
Green coat, embellished jean jacket, printed coat, thrifted – from divaXpress
Thigh-high boots, SexyPlus Clothing – here
We had an ice storm yesterday in Montreal. It reminded me of those two glorious weeks of high school that were canceled in 1998 when we had the most epic one we’d ever seen. This was nothing like it, but my car did manage to magically grow a second window, if you will – four of them, actually.
I love the way the entire world outside looks crystallized during an ice storm, frozen in time, sparkling and crackling in the wind – so crisp and ethereal; and when such delicate beauty surrounds you, it’s important to keep cozy and stay chic!
I can’t think if a better way to do it than to drape oneself in faux-fur, and the ultimate soft sweater by BB Dakota, from Voluptuous Clothing!!!
I love the elegance of its dusty rose colour and how it looks against my Christmas presies from my mum – this gorgeous, grey faux-fur trapper hat and matching snood from Chapters/Indigo (leave it to me to walk into Chapters and leave with something other than a book on my Christmas list).
So fab paired with simple black leggings and boots, and the most amazing silver, iridescent clutch from Penningtons.
Whether you rang in the new year with friends or fam, watched the ball drop at home in your PJs, or danced the
night year away fuelled by endless cocktails, bubbly and hors d’oeuvres, one thing is for sure…
It’s 2015, y’all!!! Happy New Year to and yours!!!
As for moi, I said goodbye to last year and welcomed in the new one, in what can only be described as “mermaid sequins!”
The second this dress from Rum + Coke dropped, I knew it had to be mine! I mean… It’s a sparkly, mermaid coloured, bodycon… Need I say more!?
I paired it with a jewelled clutch from Aldo, and pointy metallic pumps, because New Years Eve is the only holiday where glittery overkill is the name if the game.
Well folks, as 2014 comes to a close (just a few hours left) I’ve been reflecting upon a lot if things.
It’s been a year full of surprises, some wonderful some sad.
I decided to start blogging full time, my best friend welcomed her new baby boy into the world, my husband got a promotion at work… And we were shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of my father-in-law, an ocean away in Haiti, without any warning or a chance to say goodbye. (Read about my travels to Haiti here.)
But, all in all, it’s been a fulfilling year and we’ve overcome any hurdles we were faced with, and have come out of it stronger than ever.
Now you know I couldn’t do this post without talking about my year in outfits! I’ve worn SOOO many fab pieces and had such a blast putting looks together and blogging about them! Here are my faves!
I hope you have all had a great year too! Mine wouldn’t have been the same without y’all, and I’m lucky to have you lovelies in my life! I wish each and every one of you a fantastic New Year and I look forward to what 2015 has in store!!!
Winter hasn’t been quite what it usually is this year… For starters it has rained for the past few days, leaving us with a green Christmas (or at least a green one, spotted with patches of dirty white).
It’s also been quite mild, with temperatures well into the positives, and I must admit, it’s causing a very springy vibe.
As a matter of fact, it has felt so much like spring here, that yesterday I was channeling a total springtime fairy vibe… And I’m not gonna lie, I dig it!
I pranced through the patches if exposed grass, wondering if any early crocus buds would be poking up through the still frozen ground, and I smelled that unmistakeable smell of spring rain (pretty much a combination of mud & dog poop – I don’t know why they name fabric softener and scented candles after it).
I wore the absolute most comfortable pants in the universe (I’m not even joking right now). These amazing brown harems from Your Big Sister’s Closet are everything, and I felt like I was floating.
I paired them with a cute, short sleeved, cropped sweatshirt that I’ve had kicking around for ages, sparkly gold flats, a pretty flower ring, and get this – a headpiece. Only… It wasn’t meant to be one.
It’s actually a bib necklace which just so happens to (especially when paired with the perfect pair of flowy harem pants) double flawlessly as a spring goddess headdress, because who’s gonna stop me!?
Regardless of which holidays you celebrate, there is something magical here in Montreal this time of year! The snow-covered rooftops, decorated trees, houses aglow with dazzling multicoloured lights – no one can deny their beauty!
At least for me, there is even something exciting about a crowded shopping mall, or a busy intersection this close to Christmas. I just love seeing everyone rushing about, and wondering where they’re going, who they’re buying that last minute gift basket for, if they are on Santa’s nice list this year, and especially, what they’ll be wearing once they’ve found that train set little Timmy had so wanted, and their flustered, rosy cheeks settle briefly, only to return after a few splendid Christmas cocktails!
What could me a more perfect thing to wear, as I gather with the fam for the first of many celebrations to come this week, than my gorgeous, hunter green, uber fashiony (I know that’s not a word) Monif C. dress!
I paired it with another pair of fab shoes (designed by yours truly) from Shoes of Prey (Have I mentioned how much I love this website?). They’re just the right mix of edginess from the snakeskin, and princessiness (also not a word) from the kitten heel and bows – perfect for a whimsical, festive Christmassy look!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!!!
