Making a Connection


Edited by: Fajr Muhammad of Stylish Thought

Can you believe that it’s almost February. Fashion week is right around the corner and that means that the IFB Conference is right upon us. The IFB  Conference has opened so many doors and channels for fashion bloggers to connect and expand their *ahem* influence. Fashion week is another great avenue to network and work with brands, the media and other bloggers. In our fast-paced digital (and fashion) worlds, connection is key.
Check out this week’s Link a la Mode and connect with our 20 selected bloggers. Read their post, comment and build relationships that will last past fashion week and beyond.

It's About Fashion, Not Size! Plus Size Fashionistas That Inspire!

As a plus size girl living in a world of stick figure fashionistas, it can be hard to find inspiration when it comes to fashion. It seems that more and more plus size girls are stepping out of the closet and showing you what they have in them! The world is realizing we aren't all blessed with being thin, but we are blessed with great style! I felt like sharing some of my latest favs in the blogging biz that just so happen to be fabulously figured divas! These women inspire me everyday to take risks and be fabulous!

Nicolette Mason comes off as the kind of girl everyone is dying to hang out with! She has great taste and you can tell she loves to have fun. Her style is not just for the plus size girl, oh no, anyone can find inspiration in her outfit selections. My personal favorite is how there always seems to be just one piece that makes it pop!

 I never wanted a pair of gold glitter Miu Miu shoes so bad in my life! She plays on the classics, which I love and keeps it fresh. Any fashionista should be following the trends Nicolette Mason is setting.

Christina Brown of LoveBrownSugar.com is eclectic and funky. Christina has a flare for color that inspires me to be bold and daring. I also love how she rocks vintage styles. She makes the 80's fierce! LoveBrownSugar.com is full of goodies to get your outfit planning vibes going, and not to mention full of bold accessories! There can never be enough jewelry and Christina knows how pick her pieces!

Whatever your size, these two women are sure to inspire you to swing open your closet doors, dive in and be creative! Fashion isn't about the size of your body, fashion is about the size of your imagination!
Feel inspired!

New Earrings!

Posted by Picasa

Seems like since the holidays are over January is flipping by! We are already half way through and I feel like I have missed so much! My mind has been occupied by jewelry, the creativity just keeps flowing, so because I feel guilty for not blogging I figured I would share some of my latest creations with you!
I recently got my steel block bench so I have been hammering away! Earrings are my favorite to make! They are easy and fun! Hope you enjoy!
