Met Gala 2018 Slayage! The Best Dressed Men & Women.

Add heading

Hey!

I’ve seen everyone who was on the white carpet for the Met Gala this year.

The theme: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

The slayage was intense and very much accomplished by many. However, there are two that I just can’t get my mind off of. One from the women’s category and one from the men’s, I’ve been waking up thinking about these two looks and the runner-ups!

I’m so in love! I can’t get over this modern-day French heroine Joan of Arc look in custom Versace. Who knew that armor could look so chic?! This look says, “I’m strong, I’m beautiful, and I’ll slit you from navel to nose!”

Well done, Zendaya! Well done!

Sir! Excuse me, Sir!… Heeeey!

I mean, forgive me father, for I want to sin! It’s extra and I love it! Even down to the gold Christian Louboutin shoes. He’s one of the few men who went along with the theme and looked good doing it. He was the only man who looked the best!

Please let know which were your favorite from the women and men’s categories.

Asos Curve Bralette & Wide Fit Leather Sneakers. Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials

Yo!

I’ve finally shopped at Asos! I’ve ordered just a couple things, but I am excited to show you what I have.

ASOS.com USA

First, let me tell you that shopping with Asos was a breeze. It was super easy for me to find what I needed. Asos has six drop-down menus to help everyone shop by ascending or descending price, size, product type, brand, color, and price range. And since ya girl is size 16 minimalist on a budget, this made shopping more easy and enjoyable.

These items were previously featured in my Asos + Boohoo Curve & Plus Mini-Haul w/ Try-On! (Video) Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials.

The ASOS CURVE Supportive Textured Bralette:
Although I am a busty woman, I’ve been wanting to give bralettes a try. I am on the search for comfort in 2018 and one of the best ways to find comfort is wearing comfortable foundations.

Bralette
ASOS CURVE Supportive Textured Bralette – Front

This bralette is very comfortable. It’s stretchy but very supportive. The straps are adjustable and they didn’t dig into my shoulders. It’s easy to wash and it doesn’t change shape after washing. Except, the straps were a bit twisted once they were done. Those were easy to fix though.

The bra was a little loose in the band (the part that goes around the ribs). I kinda feel like I should have ordered a size down. However, that may come in smaller cups and I need the cups to stay the size they are.

Beware, throughout the day you may develop uni-boob. The bra doesn’t keep the breasts separated. They will be lifted, though.

I ordered this in a size 14/ 16 and I paid $26 for it.
The New Look Wide Fit Slip-On Leather Look Sneaker:

These shoes are super comfortable. I had just enough space for my toes. My big toes were rubbing against the shoe as if I needed a half size up.

However, I had so much room that the shoes felt loose around my arches and my heals. At first, I thought that would be a problem when I walk. It turns out that it’s not. I went for a walk in these shoes with no socks on and they did not flop off my feet like I thought they would.

So, if your feet are really wide and chubby, these shoes are very nice. If you want to wear these shoes with socks, I’d recommend that thin ankle socks be worn with these. Again, these are kinda narrow in the toes. Therefore, I’d avoid thick socks.

I ordered these in a size 11 wide fit and I paid $26 for them.

A 3 Step Guide to a New Year's Eve Night In. Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials

Hey! Happy Holidays!

New years eve is approaching swiftly and we need something to wear.

Not going out? Me either. I’m staying in.

I’m not really a party person. A party involves being around people you will grow tired of quickly. It involves getting dressed up to be cute, but quickly become uncomfortable after one hour when there are 3 hours left until the countdown.

So, like a true minimalist, I stay home and watch New Year’s Rockin Eve with my husband and son. That’s all I need…well sorta.

New Year’s Eve is a great time to get comfortable, eat snacks, and have a relaxing time.

Benefit Cosmetics LLC

If you don’t know where to start, let me help you. Friend to friend, sister to sister here’s my step by step guide to a New Years Eve Night In featuring items from Simply Be, Asos Curve, and Thrive Market.

Step Two: Facial Detox.

Now that you are in your nice comfy, cozy or sexy pajamas, it’s time to detox the skin and go into the new year with a glow.

I’ve always been a fan of using scrubs to exfoliate and reveal new skin and making clay masks to detox my skin.

If you’re not a DIYs person, I personally recommend these products by Acure Organics. I’ve tried other products from other brands, but no one really does it for me like Acure. Yes, I’m brand loyal. Just sayin! Not sponsored, though!

First, Mask It!

Second, Scrub It!

Third, Tone It!

Fourth, Moisturize It!

Acure Organics
Night Cream

Step Three: Snack It, Snack It, Snack It, Snack It!

Do I really need to explain why snacks are essential? Nawl! But I’ve tried every single one of these products and they a delicious must have! They non-GMO, fair trade, and just better alternatives to typical snacks. All of these can be found on ThriveMarket.com and on your first three orders you can get 20% off. A gift from me to you.

Isn’t she giving you Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) vibes with those glasses and the “werk” face?!

This coat can’t seem to do any wrong. I am smitten! I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. And once I do, keep watch for my post with me in it.

I would wear this coat with all black everything. Black denim, a black long sleeve t-shirt, and black heeled boots. Yes, I would!

3 Casual Winter Looks with Asos Curve: Curvy•Minimalist•Essentials.

Hey! Welcome! How’s it goin?

This is my first post in a new series for curvy minimalist essentials from my favorite brands. I have so many favorites that if I could buy from them all, I would. However, my bank account doesn’t match my dreams right now, but they will one day. So, until it does, I have created a series featuring all the things I wish I could buy. Consider this my wishlist/lookbook… A WishBook! Links are included for easy shopping.

Asos Winter Essentials 17 Feat Image

If you’re like me, you might be a minimalist. We happen to like more solid colors, simple cuts, and simple pieces of jewelry. We also are good for having a few pieces we like to wear often and put together with other pieces. Many of us tend to be laid back and don’t care for anything that is contrary to our personality. Whether we realize it or not, if it contradicts who we are it makes look and feel weighed down.

So, I’ve taken the time to find these oh-so-cute casual items to help you shop for winter essentials from Asos Curve & Plus Size. Here are three looks with ten items you can mix and match. All of the items are for us curvy bodies and wide feet.
