I was inspired by other fabulous plus size bloggers that displayed exactly how I feel about fashion, this made me create my own blog., I want to inspire others too.

2. What's your favorite Holiday, and why?
Christmas. Since that's also my aunts birthday, we always celebrate with the whole family, it's so warm and fun. Besides that, it's also the day we remember our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ coming to this earth.

That's hard, there are so many songs I love. I think I'd have to go with Joe - Good Girls. Brings back memories.

No there's not.

7. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

Losing all my loved ones (as I get older).

Most fashionista's love Fall, but I love Summer the most! The sun in my face and hot weather make me so happy!

What kind of coat will you be rocking this Fall? If you have great finds I missed, do share! 

(from top to bottom, left to right:)

Berry fur trim coat - Dorothy Perkins 
Peplum coat - Asos Curve
Wool PU sleeve coat - Dorothy Perkins
Military jacket with studded shoulders - Asos Curve
Faux fur leopard coat - New Look
Mink leather look waterfall biker jacket - New Look
Belted coat with PU sleeve - Asos Curve

OOTD: A night at the movies

I'm so proud of my friend, Imanuelle, who's starring in her first Dutch movie! It premiered last Wednesday in 12 different cities throughout the country and it's already a major hit! It's based on a bestselling book about a Jewish boy from a "good" neighborhood who's suddenly obsessed with black women and their voluptuous bodies, much to the dismay of his parents. It's a comedy and I really had a good laugh. I sincerely hope this is only the beginning for her, she did such a great job!

I also went to visit one of the premieres and this is what I wore.

OOTD: Ruffed up

There are many ways to wear a cute lace dress like this one but I chose to "ruff it up" a little by adding this absolutely great Forever 21+ jacket (which the ever sweet Marquita sent me from the US) and ankle boots. Because I love wearing my Summer clothes through Fall and Winter too, I like giving them a more "edgier" look for the colder seasons.

Do you often wear your Summer faves throughout Fall and Winter too? How do you make them weather proof? Let me know!

So below are three different outfits with the same key item. So my total of outfits paired with them comes to 5 now, and still the possiblities are endless... :)

Have a nice week!!!
