Jeans - LOFT ($33 after 60% off)
Top - Cynthia Rowley via TJMaxx ($10)
Kimono - TJMaxx ($20)
Heels - Target ($27)
Necklace - Mythologie via TJMaxx ($25)
Tote - H&M ($25)
Earrings - H&M ($5)

I wore this fringed kimono the other day around my 4 year old nephew and 2 year old niece, and they acted like it was the most amazing thing they had ever seen. They kept asking me what it (the fringe) was and would touch it and run it over their skin. I thought it was the cutest thing. Both of them wanted a kimono after that. 

It reminded me of myself when I'm in a clothing store that I love just walking around and touching all the fabrics, amazed by the beauty of the designs. I love how clothing can do that to you, especially to a fashion lover like me. I love how clothing makes you feel a certain way, and how you express yourself through what you wear. Fashion is my art, and I love it. 

Chris and I are on our way back to Florida in a few hours and even though I will miss my family I am ready to get back home to our kitties and our own bed. We really had the best time here in Michigan and I am so happy we were able to see everyone I wanted to and spend some good quality time with my family.

Have a great weekend ya'll!

a million bucks

Dress - H&M ($5)
Heels - BCBGeneration via TJMaxx ($40)
Necklace - Mythologie via TJMaxx ($25)
Tote - H&M ($25)
Belt - Thrifted ($2)

It's funny how something so cheap can make you feel so good. This dress was only $5 from H&M, and it makes me feel like a million bucks. The quality is amazing and the fit is so perfect! Everything in their sale section is an extra 50% off right now. If you have an H&M near you I suggest making a trip. 

This silhouette is perfect for curvy gals (especially when a belt is added). It's fitted in the middle and flares out at the bottom giving the right amount of coverage for us with a little extra on bottom. Also, an all over print like this works so well for curvy women. I added my black strappy heels and a black tote to keep the look casual but still chic at the same time. This look would work well for many occasions - date night, lunch with your besties, and even work (in a casual environment). 

I plan on wearing this tonight to go out with my ladies. I'll switch out the tote for a clutch and maybe some higher heels for a dressier look. 

Always keep an eye out for the sale section, you never know when you will find a $5 dress that makes you feel amazing.

Happy Friday Ya'll!
