French Curves: GRAOU

As most of you probably know by now, I’m from Montreal, and I speak French!

Today, I’m celebrating my heritage and joining up with the French Curves collaboration!!! This is the monthly outfit photo challenge with the french touch, which takes place each 16th of the month, and was founded by the beautiful, and always so chic, Vanoue of The Curvy and Curly Closet.

But fear not, my Anglo loves! I’ve summarized it in English for you, because I wouldn’t want you to miss out!

The theme of this month’s challenge is GRAOU, or, as you’re probably more familiar with… RAWR!!!

I wear a lot of leopard print. Whether my outfit is super sexy, or conservative, a little leopard has the ability to lend a certain sense of animalism to anything it touches.

So I went with one of my favourite pieces – a pretty, black & red leopard print bomber from Addition Elle.

To have some fun with the theme, I paired it with an amazing snake print skirt, also from Addition Elle.

And because everyone knows that the secret lies in the details, the cherry on top of this animal print cake, is definitely an adorable leopard print necklace from Aldo, which compliments perfectly, the African bronze bracelet I’ve chosen to go with it!

Et alors, sans attendre un moment de plus, ça me done beaucoup de plaisir de vous annoncer que je suis maintenant une participante dans le French Curves Challenge, créé par la belle, et toujours si chic, Vanoue, de The Curvy and Curly Closet !!!

Chaque 16 du mois un nouveau thème, et ce mois-ci… GRAOU !!!

GRAOUUU !!! Le son du du sex, hihiii, n’est-ce pas? Mais pour moi, le motif léopard se présente souvent dans mes tenues, soit-elles sexy ou conservatrice, car il a la capacité de prêter une certaine sens d’animalisme et sexualité a tout ce qu’il touche.

Pour ce challenge, j’ai décidé sur une de mes pièces préférées – ce joli jacket de Addition Elle, qui combine un style aviateur avec un formidable motif de léopard rouge et noir !



Pour jouer un peu avec le thème, j’ai décidé d’avoir un peu de fun, et de d’accoupler mon jacket avec une jupe de motif serpent, aussi d’Addition Elle.


Et tout le monde sait que le secret d’une belle tenue reste dans les détails, alors ce collier super cute, d’Aldo, en motif léopard est la cerise sur le gâteau. Il va parfaitement bien avec mon bracelet africain en bronze aussi !

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful

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!

And while I am non confrontational by nature, when someone starts thinking that they can hurt me, they need to know that I am laughing in their face!

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!)

And love how, no matter how hard you tried to hurt me, no matter what you tried (yes b*tch, TRIED) to take from me, I stayed fresh AF and didn’t even smudge my mascara.

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!)

A New Way to Thrift

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.

I’m super obsessed with its giant fur trimmed hood, and I just love the fact that I probably would have found this coat very uncool as a teen, but now… It is just everything!!!

It’s seriously warm, too! Perfect for SWLA (shovelling while looking adorable, obvi). Haha!

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!

There’s nothing quite like stepping out in a seriously embellished jean jacket, though.

This must be what Dolly Parton felt like in the 80s… Only fatter… And it’s glorious!

Lastly, this stunning, A-line, printed linen coat, has me channeling my inner Russian doll!

How gorge is this piece!? Everything about it is perfection!

Loving how well it pairs with my thigh-high boots from SexyPlus, too… Especially a foot deep in the snow! Hehee!

So definitely get online and do some thrifting from the comfort of your own home! I guarantee, you will not regret it!

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!!!
