R.I.P Mia Amber

Mia Amber has passed at the age of 36. She was well known in the plus size community and looked at as a role model for many women! She has left behind her husband and family. A lady of elegance and a gorgeous beauty she inspired all women of size that we are beautiful within and out! Even though I never meet her personally, I feel that her inspiring words and photos will live on within the community of plus size women! Her family has created a Mia Amber fund. You can make your donations at http://www.miaamberfund.blogspot.com/.

May you Rest in Peace Mia Amber

“Tribute to Black Beauties” Vogue Italia

Vogue Italia dedicated one whole issue to the black beauties! The issue was photographed by Ellen von Unwerth with models Jeneil Williams, Cici Ali, Ubah Hassan, Gayle McDonald, Kelly Moreira, Jae Childs, R’el Dade, Jasmine Tookas, Lily Taylor and Ariel Meredith. Bright colors and crazy afro hair was the style for the spread they named “Tribute to Black Beauties”, Giulio Martinelli was the stylist for this shoot! I love that Vogue Italia is always dedicating issue or spread to black beauties! As the editor Claire Sulmers wrote in here article

With bright eyes peering out under deliciously curled lashes, cheekbones and jawbones contoured as if chiseled from sharp stone, full noses, and sumptuously lush lips, black women are unquestionably beautiful.

All I have to say is LOVES IT!!

More Pictures!

Went out the other night with some local friends to the local bar!After having a few drinks @ the Falls we headed back home where we got stuck in the elevator! Yes stuck!!!! We were there for approximately 25 mins until the beautiful LAFD came and rescued us from such a frightening situation(just joking). I had a blast being stuck in the elevator!!!!

ANYWAYS WITH THE FASHION!

I recently went to H&M and had a nice shopping spree! I love H&M cuts, even though plus size is only available at overseas H&M they still offer some styles here that could fit us larger size women! I bought this lovely gold tan color block trapeze shirt which I paired with boot cut jeans and tan flats! Caring all my belongs in my vintage color blocked clutch.For jewelery I am wearing H&M bangles and the necklaces was a gift! Changed up for the evening with black legging and buckled boot tan boots.
