Flowers??? A lil bit!

 I never posted these pics although I did post one or two of them on my instagram when I first took them.  I thought my hair looked absolutely insane and my yellow bra I wore underneath this sheer shirt was exposed by the Camera's flash.  However looking back at them I realized WOW I look smaller here.  So now I love them.  This was at my height of doing meatless Mondays and eating better so I finally decided to share. 

Flowers?  Yeah, I'm not the type of chick that particularly loves flowers.  I mean I love getting them and smelling them and all that cute shit.  But I don't really like wearing them.  It's Not me!!!  However, every once in a while you find a floral print u fall in love with and gotta have.  I love this shirt.  The flowers, how sheer it is, and how it hangs off the body.  So comfortable and forgiving yet stylish.  I got it from K-MART.  I say often, "Don't sleep on K-MART", that LYS collection for the curvy women is so brilliant.  Offering u the styles and price every woman can adore.  As for the bra, let me tell you, I am a firm believer in wearing colorful undergarments.  Sometimes not realizing they are exposed.  But they make me feel sexy and people usually seem surprised that a big girl can find colorful bras and undies and even more shocked that she has the audacity to wear them.  Most of my under garments are extremely flamboyant.  Sorry if my bra showing looks tacky.  I really didn't know.

Here is my very first purchase I ever made from SimpleBe.  Like I said in my previous post I never bought anything from them, but I am so happy I finally did.  This dress is gorgeous.  Very conservative but totally fit its purpose.  It was my vocal final at my Juries.  Which is the last test I have to take every semester.  Since I truly believe in FATISM and that the majority of the world (fat people included) are offended by other peoples FAT or CURVES, I usually get a critique that they would like me a little bit more covered up.  I saw this dress in a SIMPLYBE catalog that came out early fall and knew it was the one.  It also seemed like a dress that I would have for a long time and wear over and over again.  Definitely to church with my Auntie!

Well here are some pics I snapped in it!

Hope U like it!

Places I've Never shopped

I consider myself somewhat of a shopaholic.  I shop pretty often and could almost all day everyday if I had the funds to do so.  But of course like many people I am a repeat offender.  My heart longs and caters to some of the same shops.  Just like a Doctor or a Hairstylist when you find the right one that never seems to steer you wrong you keep coming back and back.  Thats how I am with ASOS, Forever21, Target, Torrid, K-Mart, Ross, Marshalls, Ashley Stewart and my favorite thrift store in Hamilton, NJ.  I've had a bad experience with London fashion super store EVANS, that has prevented me from shopping there again although I often look through their catalog longing to wear their items.

This year I recently started shopping from SimplyBe and absolutely love it.  The cut, the fit, the style, the fabrics they leave longing for more.  I wish there were possibly a little more affordable but I do believe their clothes are worth it.  I also returned to shop at Lane Bryant.  Usually finding their clothes to be somewhat off trend, it is my understanding they have a new creative director and was bought out charmers shoppes inc..  However I have conflicting stories to know the truth of that rumor but now I think they are starting to cater to the young plus size women and still keep their solid following of the working/business plus size women.  With that said, I have made some fabulous purchases from them as of late. 

Stores however that I am eager to try out are as follows:

Modcloth is top on my list.  The fact that they have a large selection of clothes that go up to a size 4x truly turns me on.  Saddly they seem to sell out of their VERY plus size stuff quickly.  Visually I see why...they have vintage or vintage inspired pieces that big girls long for.  Those old classic Donna Reid cuts or those festive paterns from yester years.  They are exspensive at least for me but are made in America which totally makes me want to support!  They seem like rare artisian Gems. 

nakimuli run and owned by a funky little chick named Tennille Nakimuli caters to the woman pushing the plus size boundaries.  She makes straight sizes and plus sizes and custom pieces all out of Brooklyn.  Many Celebs curvy and not (Jill Scott & Erykah Badu) have been spotted rocking her stuff.  I have been in awww of her things for a while and soon I will be coping my first piece of hers.  Definitely a New Years resolution.  Please check her out.  Follow her on Instagram she is amazing.

17 Sundays Is a Australian based company that has very interested jackets and other cute items that definitely make me wanna possibly explore making a purchase.  The name is also fitting, they were  going for what it was like when we were 17.  But I do find them extremely exspensive.

donatellas WOW~!  This is a site that I will probably make a purchase as soon as Christmas is over and I'm done shopping for others.  They have leggings, tights and hoisery that goes up to like a 7x!!!  Thats too cool, you can't say they discriminate and they have free shipping worldwide from LONDON!  I'm in love!

out of the corner boutique These clothes are sooo cute so trendy.  I discovered it recently when Mia of mentioned them on one of her post.  Most of the clothes I want are sold out for the season.  So I'm really looking forward to their spring styles.  Look at this...

It is apart of my new years resolution incorporate some of these fashions in my day to day wardrobe!

A lil Black & Gold a lil Soul!

As you may know I'm a performer.  Predominantly musical theatre but I dip and dabble in other genres.  I joined the R&B Pop Ensemble this semester at school and got the chance to do a Diana Ross and the Supreme song along with "I Never Loved a Man" by Aretha Franklin.  Immediately when I saw this dress on ASOS I knew ....I GOTTA HAVE IT!!!  YESSS!!!!  I was broke at the time but scraped pennies to get it delivered promptly.  LOVE IT!  I know I wear a lot of black, but I love it, it goes with anything.  Especially anything at night.  I paired it with these American Eagle boots I got at Payless, added some big hair and <<>>I was ready to.

It runs a little short so I put some old shorts from Kmart's Love your Style line underneath them.  But the dress that could also be worn as a tunic was very comfortable, stretchy and stylish.  I hope you enjoy these backstage pics.

purple sweater/red nails!

Last week I finally whipped out an old Purple Sweater that I hijacked from my Mother's closet.  I like to think the sweater is from a previous life since she doesn't wear it anymore.  When I first took it, it was too small.  Finally it fits wonderfully.  I've had a few shockers like that in the past couple of weeks.  Close that use to NOT fit.  Or was a little tight, fit like a glove.  Yeah to me!!!!

Honestly I wore a really beautiful ASOS dress this week.  Of course I didn't get anyone to snap any pics of me in it.  Not even instagram shots.  But I was being rather fashionable. 

Red Nails is new thing.  Which may sound completely ridiculous.  But I've always shyed away from it, mainly because everyone else was doing it.  It was almost like a "Expected Color" but now I'm all over it like white on rice.  I did my nails myself, but I think I will go get a Proper manicure for the new year, with red as my polish of course.

Anyways.  I got a lot of compliments on this shirt!  It made me very happy and a lot of other people too.  Who said sweaters have to be boring?

OOTD: Well... Many days ago!

This was an outfit I wore last week.  Just finally got around to making a outfit post about it.  I really love this purse.  I found it at my favorite thrift store in Hamilton NJ and it was only $3.99 and I believe its by Style and Company.  Real leather too!  That was a good trip.  I got a lot of great finds that day.  The outfit itself is real simple... I threw it together.  The Jean button up shirt is from the Men's section at Walmart, the tunic is from Marshalls and the boots are from Torrid.  I was happy to find a cheap jean shirt since its pretty on trend this season.  The crazy thing is some places are charging you like $44 for something you can find at a thrift store or at a place like Walmart for like $12!  My hair is like forever pulled back because its growing back funny.  I hate it!  {Sigh}  I don't know what to do with it.  Something has to change soon.

Fashionably Late!!! Huh?

I've been out the mix for a while guys I know!  But I'm ready to come back with a bang!  BOOM!  Here I am!  This summer I went through somewhat of a break up that really through me for a loop.  On top of that I was in rehearsal for a show and if you follow me on instagram I still update my life through pictures often.  With that said, I still love fashion, still love my blog, I just had to get back to loving myself.  And thats what this new phaze of my blog is going to be about.

At the end of October I went to VA for an audtion and this is what I wore!  This Lane Bryant dress was probably one of my best investments as far as a dress to date, I can honestly say its a go to especially for performing!  After me and my mother left VA we headed to Baltimore MD, to visit my sister and I had a little extra cash so I decided to make it to a place I have always wanted to go to because I heard wonderful things about it.  K-STATION!!!  It's located in the Hampden section of Baltimore which is actually very trendy, artsy and up and coming.  When I use to live in Baltimore I don't recall there ever being a place like that!  I got to meet the Owner and Mastermind behind this fabulous plus size boutique, JADE and she is beautiful inside and out!  She helped me pick out some one of a kind timeless pieces.  A black Kiyonna Pencil skirt was one of them!  If you are ever in the MD/DC area give a go and stop by.  There are some fabulous places to eat there as well!

Thanks for reading XOXO~SAMILLE

Hiatus over!

I know I haven't blogged since July.  Honestly a lot has happened in my life in the past few months that made it difficult to continue blogging.  But I am ready to enter into this world again.  Resilant and ready!  I hope my followers are still with me.  If u follow me on twitter (@thickspot) or instagram (@thickspot) you may have been keeping up with my rants.  From relationship woes to sensational stage achievements.  As you may know by know I am a musical theatre performer.  A singer, a actor and this summer I worked on and just recently completed my very first Opera!  It was a blast.  But now I am back to my school work.  I'm in my senior year of college and I am just trying to stay focus to complete everything that I need to complete and to continue learning since there is always more to know.  I'm still performing and I love that.  Still creating, and still shopping.  Still reading NYLON MAGAZINE, and keeping up with the blogs and bloggers that I fell in love with long before my own blog begin.

Yesterday I tweeted a pic of a semi-simple outfit that I took a self portrait of on INSTAGRAM.  There I said how I was looking for someone to take pictures of me in it.  Well my girl Shay came through for me and here it is.  I hope you enjoy, and welcome me back with open arms.

OOTD: Old Navy

Good weather equals good times!  Right?  I've been a little moody lately, but the wonderful weather does help.  I didn't mean to wear a Old Navy T-shirt or Old Navy shorts.  The outfit kinda just happened.  And I know I haven't posted anything since earlier this month, so I figured's time!

 I got the shorts actually at Re/Dress NYC the plus size consignment shop that has since closed in Brooklyn!  **TEAR** I did find some stylish finds in there.  I threw on this regular navy tee from Old Navy and went to dine with my friends for some fresh Mexican food.

When I post next it will definitely be a"LATELY" post which I haven't done in a while!

This time last year I was at NYC GAY PRIDE but this year i just couldn't swing it.  I hope all of you are in good health and enjoying your summer!

Don't 4get to check me out on twitter and Instagram!  @thickspot on both.  Definitely Instagram, I seem to post there more regularly!

I really don't know what season it is anymore.  I was so freaking hopeful that it would stay HOT!  I love the summer, but NO!  That's to good to be true.  This is NJ and in NJ nothing is as it seems.  So if any of you are in warm hot places in the country or the world, please don't rub it in!  I will get jealous, because all I want is a tan!  Anywhoo!

Today due to the rainy, moody atmosphere I had to cover up more than I like.  I do however get to wear those styling leopard shoes from Aerosol's that I got at a miraculous discount and were first introduced on the blog here.... and I got to finally wear this big dookie chain necklace I got from the RED, WHITE, & BLUE!!!  Its super heavy but I think gave the outfit a lot of personality.  Statement jewelry is what its all about to make a plan outfit look fab!
