I'm My Own Barbie

"Clothes should seduce. They should lead you to create the best and most beautiful version of yourself." - Unknown
Hey loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend! In today's post I want to share something special with you all. When I started this blog, I just looked at it as something to do for fun. However little did I know that I would learn so so much in the process of doing this blog, not only about blogging, fashion, etc but so much more. In the process of becoming a fashion/style blogger I learned about myself as well. All while blogging, I have learned to truly love my body, my curves because that is a part of what makes me, well ME! I would often compare myself to other bloggers, which can be a positive or negative thing. After a while I noticed that is one of the many things that makes me different from other bloggers. (Don't get me wrong I love all of my fellow bloggers)
However I would compare my body to others, which I already knew was a big no no but it was so hard not to! But I have come to love ALL my fabulous curves soooo much! That's why I opted to rock this pencil skirt because it flaunts some of my fave assets (AHEM..) lolz I always feel beautiful, sophisticated and sexy in this skirt! I amped up the level of VA VA VOOM by adding leopard pumps and scarf. I wanted a soft touch to the otherwise fierce look so I opted for this soft pink blouse. I absolutely love love love this look. What do you guys think?
So ladies embrace your beautiful bodies for yourselves! I loved Barbie dolls growing up. My favorite part was being able to dress them up every day. Well now I think of myself as my own Barbie doll to dress up everyday. I know that may sound crazy but it makes dressing up fun, makes me feel beautiful, and I guess in a sense allows me to be a kid! If you're in love with your body the way it is, why change it? That's how God made you right? I need you guys to do something for me. The next time you get dressed and you're feeling fabulous, post it on Instagram and hashtag #ImMyOwnBarbie. I can't wait to see! Let's encourage and inspire one another! XO and Stay FAB! - Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!



As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J
