Make Your Own Jeans

Hey beauties!
I wanted to share an amazing website I discovered while checking out Addi's blog The Curve and The Line.  Prior to discovering this website, I figured I would never be able to partake in the leather trend this fall. Boy was I wrong!  Make Your Own Jeans is a website that makes ANY item according to your measurements.  Such as shirts, dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts, etc.  I think this is great creation, especially for us curvy ladies!  Below I've listed a few of my favs.

Leather Cargo Shorts Style # 358                                                         Pleated Leather Skirt

Custom Jeans - FIX Measurements                                                            Front Slit Leather Skirt - # 126
P.S. Most items are under $100!

DIY me

Hey beauties!
I'm on a roll today; 2 posts in 1 day! pats self on back LOL. Last week I posted on my Facebook (CheapChicandCurvy) and Twitter pics of my latest DIY project.  Initially, this top was a dress.  After wearing it out one night, I realized it was too short for me : ( So what's a girl to do?! Oh I know...DIY!  I decided to turn the top into a waterfall top.  So I picked up a pair of scissors and went to work!  Of course, the shirt was too short smh! So I decided to wear it backwards and viola, there you have it!  Have any of you beauties DIY'd anything? If so, what I'd like to know!  Have a great week ladies : )

I'm so in LOVE with.....Leopard!

Hey to all you beautiful women out there! I've missed you guys sooo much OMG! How has everything been going? On my end, there's are going good, still on the hunt for a new job; I must put my degree to work soon! Lol Ok on to my outfit, I actually wore this number to church. Well before you ask, yes I sported this number to church. See my church is pretty laid-back in terms of "church attire". My Pastor wears jeans every Sunday and he doesn't expect his congregation to feel out of place based on their attire. I mean, come on we have enough to worry about, right?!  What does your "church attire" consist of?

I think it came out pretty good, considering that I threw this together at the last minute! Don't you?!

Aztec Me

Hey guys, I just wanted to share an outfit with you that I wore to a fashion event last week. After receiving an invite to this amazing event, I struggled with what I should wear. Should I go casual? Should I wear something dressy? Should I wear a dress? All of these questions popped into my head while weighing my options. I knew I wasn't purchasing anything for this event, after all it was only for a few hours. That would've been just plain ridiculous! So I shopped my closet, all while being at work lol. That's talent huh?! LOL I mentally went over each piece that I had and decided I wanted to sport this beauty. You may remember me raving out this skirt here. I must say, this skirt made my outfit a hit that night #winning lol! Charlie Sheen has really started something that with that saying lol! Okay, enough of the rambling lol, check out how I sported this number.  I hope you guys enjoy!
Did any of you score great finds from the Missoni line at Target? Please share...

 Thanks for reading!

Black on Black

Hey guys! How are you doing?! I hope and pray of my fabulous readers are doing just fine!  This weekend I went a little crazy at the mall.  Luckily, I had gift cards left from my graduation gifts lol! Needless to say, I didn't damage my back account too much lol!  Most of this outfit was purchased on Friday. When I purchase something, I put it use quick hunny lol!  Macy's had their One Day Sale Friday and Saturday; which would make it a 2 day sale, right?! Anywho, the sale was amazing guys! I purchased two great pieces from Rachel Roy's line.  No, Rachel Roy does not make "plus size" clothes.  But if you know anything about me, I'm a lover of clothes which just so happens to include ALL sizes!  Ladies, if you're experiencing a fashiongasm for an item that may not be your correct size; try it on! Who's to say it may look stunning on you, if you don't try it you'll never know!  With that said, here's my out for the day.  I actually wore this to church; I love my church!

Have a great week guys!  Have any of you seen the new Kevin Hart movie?! If so, I would love your reviews.

P.S. I would like to thank my dad for being my photographer today! He doesn't know yet but he just earned himself a new title; my photographer.

It's raining CONFETTI!

As you can see I'm in a GREAT mood today. I hope all of you are as well!  I scored this amazing top from one of the local thrift stores in my area this weekend.  Of course, it's sheer and had tons of color; anything else would be uncivilized lol!  Not to mention, this top only cost $3 #teamwinning lol!  The weather here was soooo amazing, I had to do a post!  How was the holiday for you guys?! Did you spend time with family and friends? What did you wear? Let me know!  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need any advice! I'm here for your guys, I love you all : )

Fuchsia, Teal and Snakeskin???

Well you don't say!?  Prior to this post, I would've never considered pairing those colors together.  I guess this could also be considered color blocking as well.  Overall, I'm pleased with how the outfit came together : ) tooting my OWN horn lol! Oftentimes, colors we least expect to work make the BEST outfits.  I hope you guys are having a great Thursday, it's one day closer to the weekend! LOL Have a great day everyone and take care!  What are some colors that you've been dying to try out? How's your day going? Let me know, I wanna hear from ALL my lovely readers!

P.S. I got a little camera happy and took a lot of pics!
