Inspiration


It's snowing out and I'm Not wearing anything that would serve as inspiration to any of you.  Instead I was thinking of showing you fashionable Inspirations 4 me!  Hoping that they would inspire you/ or Not.  Feel free to tell me if any of them don't ring well with you.  Some are new, some are old, some you know, and some maybe you won't!  But be open-minded and see if there's anything that catches your eye!


Gwen as many of you all know is one of my all time favorite fashion icons.  She has that mix of hard, tough-edge that all women want to possess, mixed with the femininity that the world looks for us to have.  She's pretty even when she's dressed rough and thats really beautiful to me.  These jeans (which I believe are from her L.A.M.B. line) I kill 4 them!  The cut is beautiful.  I know many other big girls would call 4 a boycott of Ms. Gwen and her line.  But I have loved her wayyy before she came out with her own line.  And I like to think and pray she will soon embrace her curvy fans and followers!


Look at EVA the DIVA!  I'm amazed by her!  This look is actually kinda reminiscent of Gwen's!  But it still makes me very interested in this girl.  If I didn't know it was EVA I would probably follow her for a couple of blocks down a busy street just to figure her out.  Knowing she would have to be a artist or something.  Then Eva completely shows me a different side with...


WOW!  I have never seen her looking like this.  I can't say she's one of my all time favs, but I'm watching!!!  At least I want to know who her stylist is!


You probably don't know her!  But you should. KESH is like everything to me!  The style, the look, the attitude, the energy, the art!  OMG!  She damn near turns me on!  She'e KESH dammit!  She's an amazing Fashion designer, Fashion Icon, DJ,Stylist, artistic director, blogger and just the voice of the streets.  Born in London and went completely famous for her style!  Making t-shirts that the likes of Kanye West, M.I.A. and Lupe Fiasco rocked.  Look her Youtube videos up.  I have been obsessed with her for like 5 years or so!  Before I started blogging!  She makes almost everything she wears.  You can find her between London, NYC, & LA!


CHECK out her Blog at www.keshcontinues.com.  She's sells her T-shirts there from time to time!


M.I.A. I love her music, and her artistic point of view.  She's a woman with a strong mind and you can see that just with this pic.  But like most women is sexy just because she is.  And she embrace's it all about herself.  I especially love her hair.  She has that kept, yet un-kept look that I love and gives me someone to identify with since I share the same sentiment.  I mean look at her!  Not too much make-up and a look of confidence that every womam should wear!


During the late 80's tot he early 90's Lisa Bonet was one of the baddest bitches on earth.  Of mixed race and a earthy yet, seductive look!  During that time she graced the cover of Rolling Stone mags as well as all those Teen Beats, and Black Beat magazines.  She use to be married to Lenny Kravitz and together they had a daughter Zoe Kravitz thats one of the biggest fashion icons today.  She is still beautiful too!  But I love this era and will often watch The Cosby Show just to see what she wore!


Solange can do No wrong and I am eagerly awaiting her sophmore album.  The more interesting of the two for me!  And her style speaks wayy more volumes to me than Beyonce!  Not that I don't love me some BEY!  But Solange's fashion risks are so daring.  Once she shaved her head, and now this green lace dress!!!  2 die 4!  She lives in Brooklyn, Dj's and just signed a modeling contract!  <3


Prince!!!  My all time favorite Inspiration 4 ever & ever!  And this era of Prince around 1986/87 is my absolute favorite.  Here he is steppin out with Shelia E and Kat from his then band.  You know he stayed with the shoulder pads, pumps and big hair!  He can do No wrong in my eyes and b4 I was collecting clothes and obsessed with fashion, it was music and it was PRINCE!  I have a huge Prince Collection and during highschool while everyone else was listening to NSYNC and Biggie Smalls, I was catching up on one of music's most exstensive catalogs!


Unfortunately non- of these people are plus-sized!  That's where blogging comes into play!  I also love street fashion which comes in all shapes and sizes.  I also love blogs!  I read many with women of again, all shapes and sizes.  These photo's and people are just Inspiration.  A guide to what I like and how I can make it my own!

I HAVE A TUMBLR NOW~!  CHECK IT OUT!  TELL ME IF THERE'S ANY PROBLEMS.  I AM STILL LEARNING IT!
