Spring 2014 Must Haves...

As usual, Im doing the most trying to 'reinvent' my look....
Which is a totally struggle,considering I wear black 10months out of the year.....
I know,I shouldn't be that way considering I studied fashion,do visual merchandising,and not afraid to style bold looks...
I just don't do well with change, hence why the next few weeks are going to be a struggle(but that's a story for another blog)

I'm trying new hair colors
 I'm still using Lace Xclusive hair( s/o to,but now I have introduced SPLAT and ADORE color into my life......

I'm teaching myself new tricks
I have a friend who can literally watch a YT video and learn to do ANYTHING in probably less time then the video actually took to make.So I have been rescently taking classes a YouTube University and have learned to color virgin hair,make clip in hair extensions, and soon make lipstick out of crayons!

Bolder lipsticks..... 
My current favorites are Harlem Knights from Kaoir, Heroine and HauteCore from MAC.
Which reminds me I need to hurry up and get SNOB and CANDY YUM YUM as well?

Now for clothing,I am actually taking my time due to a career change(a story for another blog),I am on the prowl for a complete new wardrobe but...

You knew there was a 'but'...
I am looking to break out of my normal stomping grounds (Torrid,Lane Bryant,etc),because I have gotten bored. So I have searched high and low on instagram,Youtube,luvocracy,etsy,etc to complile my list of a few of my 'Spring 2014 Must Haves'

You ready?

I love this tutu! I appreciate the lining under it which makes it less 'costumey'

I haven't worn a body suit since 1993,but this tribal print is really doing something for me..
AND its coming from a store I NEVER go to,I wonder what else I been missing?

Any time BIG is on a plus size shirt,I want all parts of it. I typically do not wear peplums because they were never quite my thing but I may have to break on this one.

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch.. I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get... I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear. So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare. No, like seriously.... She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model? I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol So I did my own make up (scary, I know), Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She, And sat in front of the ca

Size and the standard of beauty ;The little girl in the pink jumper

So lately I've been battling with some deamons as far as my appearance..... As a bigger girl I have learned what can make or break you in terms of beauty..... Yet I still find it shocking when people find me attractive.I'm very shy,and often it hard to believe that people find me beautiful......I always resort back to moments of my childhood.... Picture this..... A chubby bubbly lite skin girl with braids and barettes in a pink and white shirt,deniem jumper,white socks,and pink/white nikes(eh I was a 90's kid) comes to her desk and sees a note.... "Dear Ashlei Will you be my girlfriend?" The little girl looks over to the most popular boy in class,who happens to be smiling at her from ear to ear.The youg girl sends a note back,"Yes"backwards "s" and all....Later on that day as the children file out of their lines for recess,the girls on one side stepping,playing house,and the boys on the other wresling,playing football,etc.....A yung ma
