I’m so sorry, it’s been a long time since I last confessed my glam with our plus-size Glam-Aholics. First, I want to know why didn’t any of you tell me that H&M extended sizes are now available in store?! Although, many of you know that I don’t let my size hinder me from shopping at any and everywhere! I thought it would’ve been nice to know that now I don’t have to hold my breath while trying on a pair of jeans! LOL Okay, but back to the script…while I was last minute shopping for the DOLCE boutique event, I spotted these green pants at H&M ($24.95) that I had to have!
I knew it was fate when I found a size 16 that fit perfectly! Soon as I purchased the pants, I already had the perfect top and shoe in mind. I call this fit “Ocean Blue”. I wanted to try my hand at color-blocking. Watching Mia Ray knock it out the park every time, inspired me to take a shot at it! Plus, I wanted to show my full-figured Glam-Aholics that we can rock colored denim like the rest of them and look good while doing it!
I mixed my green pants with my royal blue top that I’d purchased from Forever 21 Plus a week ago. My intent was to make all my pieces pop, especially my shoes! You all know, I’m addicted to shoes! Especially Jeffrey Campbell, their designs make me want to SCREAM & SHOUT! I finished my color story with a climax of a mint colored wedge, adding in my latest addition AUDREY TWO ($139.95) to finish the job!
My motto: If my look is basic, I twist on a great pair shoes to make the cycle complete!
Get ready to emerge out of your dark winter colors into your candy colored brights! The refreshing, vibrant mint (also known as seafoam), is one of Spring’s coolest colors! Trending in everything from apparel, nail polish and if you’re anything like Katy Perry…even your hair!
The options are endless when it comes to rockin’ this color. Pair it with neutrals, neons or sport it with other pastels for a color coordinated head to toe look. Dive right into this cool green/blue like Kim and Khloe Kardashian. They’ve been spotted in an array of mint shades…
Adding a hint of mint with basic colors really makes it pop, it’s perfect for color-blocking! If you just want a splash of mint, pair it with classic black, for a safe and polished everyday look. Accessorizing with mint shoes, jewelry and handbags are all quick and easy ways to enjoy this trend. The eye-catching mint is a delicious hue that we’ll be wearing all Spring and Summer long. While out shopping this season for pieces, be sure to add this color to update your wardrobe!
It’s #ManicureMonday on Confessions! We want all of our Glam-Aholics to twitpic us on Twitter (@GlamAholicLife), your current mani & tell us what shade you’re rocking! I’ll go first!
This week, Stuff and I were in the mood for Spring, so we dipped my pointy nails into Essie’s “Blue and Borrowed” and kept it simple. This color really pops and springs forward whatever look I’m rocking!
Ladies, use your manicure as an opportunity to try out Spring’s hottest hues!
@LittleMsGlam: I confess that I can not live without DiorShow Black Out mascara ($25)! It is my absolute favorite! It glides on thick, but not clumpy. It defines and separates and creates dramatic lashes that are often mistaken for falsies! It lasts all day and doesn’t smear. This mascara literally takes my lashes to new heights!
@Just__Adrienne: I absolutely love my L’oreal Telescopic mascara ($7.99), because it defines my lashes while at the same time adding length. It doesn’t hurt that is gives me the same desired look as my other favorite, Chanel Inimitable ($30) but with a smaller price tag! Same bang, for a smaller buck!
@Arjaunjubri: Since I have long eyelashes, I needed a mascara that would give me tons of volume and Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl mascara ($18) provided just that! Makes my lashes fuller, longer and visible plus it picks up every lash for extra body and definition. Did I mention I can wear it ALL DAY and NIGHT with no touch ups! I’m sold for life. As long as it’s on the market I won’t need to try another product.
@GlamAholicLife: My lashes are LONG, thick and WILD! I never need to wear falsies with eyelashes like this. I’ve tried many different mascaras before, but I now believe I’ve found my favorite(s). Every chance I get, I always express my love for MAC’s Opulash mascara ($15), to anyone that will listen. It stays on ALL day and even on nights that I fall asleep and forget to remove it, I never wake up with it smeared across my face. Although it adds volume and length, one thing that I wanted more of was for my lashes to be separated for that “Betty Boop” effect lol! I found the perfect solution. I first apply my Opulash and immediately (before it begins to dry), I apply NYC’s High Definition Separating mascara ($4.99) and get the results that I’m looking for! Alone, the NYC mascara will smear and may not last all day. So yes, I wear two products at the same time. Paired together, they make the perfect combo!
Look hot while keeping cool this Spring! The peek-a-boo material is perfect for all this warm weather we’re having and can move easily from the beach to a night out. Not to be confused with athletic wear, the sheer and sometimes knotted fabric can be seen on tops, pants, skirts, dresses…you name it! I love to bare a little skin! If sheer mesh is a bit too much for you, try a mesh overlay it adds texture while giving you the same effect. Remember you don’t want to go mesh crazy, so be selective about which mesh piece you want to wear…
Two weeks ago I picked up this mesh detailed t-shirt from Pretty Girls Rock Boutique located in Detroit and I couldn’t wait to sport it! So I got all dressed up with nowhere to go lol! I decided to make my mesh top the center of attention by teaming it with my favorite white jeans. I completed the look with my always handy leather pouch from American Apparel and Vince Camuto corset pumps.
While mesh can sometimes come off as sexy, Mia Ray went for a more classy look when she rocked this trend over the weekend. Color blocking in a yellow mesh bodysuit that she picked up from Swank Boutique, turquoise slacks from Forever 21 and purple suede Steve Madden sling back pumps. She made this color scheme werk! Perfect color combination just in time for Spring!
The yellow bodysuit had mesh detailing along the top and around each sleeve. Adding a little twist like this, can make a look go from simple to stylish in the blink of an eye!
Which leads us to our Glam-Aholic Item Of The Week!
As seen on VH-1′s Basketball Wives star Draya, these leggings take the mesh trend to another level! How would you rock these?!

Our favorite new mommy, Beyonce’ was spotted Spring ready as she made her way through NYC recently. The radiant beauty sported a tropical look in pair of Stella McCartney Hawaiian printed harem trousers, accessorizing with pink woven belt and bright yellow pumps. As we mentioned before florals are a huge trend this Spring! Adding in a few floral prints to your look will instantly have you in the mood for the season! I love this look and to top it off Bey looks like she hasn’t skipped a beat since she dropped baby Blue! She said say it best and meant it…”strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business” lol
Get the look!
H&M Floral Pants $14.95
I love to draw inspiration from everywhere especially my favorite stylish celebs! Soon as a fashion-forward picture surface on the net, I’m all over it! I can sit up for hours on the computer making huge files of images. So, while I was doing my daily regimen of Googling, I ran across a pic of Kourtney Kardashian rockin’ my favorite fringe poncho that I’d picked up from H&M! I know many of you Glam-Aholics remember when I first wore my poncho to “Styles In The City” this past summer…
Without a doubt The Kardashian sisters are my favorite fashionistas, so I knew I had to do the remix! I tossed on my poncho and zipped up my thigh-high boots that I’d purchased from Torrid, to show my plus-size Glam-Aholics how to re-work celebrity styles for your curves….
Remember my full-figured ladies, it’s really easy to remix the hottest looks…but the most important factor is to put your little twist to it and own it!
I would love for all of my Glam-Aholics in the Metro Detroit area to come out and shop with VH1′s Jennifer Williams & I, as we shop “Basketball Wives Style” at Dolce Boutique! For those that missed the last event, you won’t wanna miss this one! Come ready to sip, mingle and shop with the most stylish Glam-Aholics in the city!
Hope to see my ladies there
