Melania Trump and the White House Easter Egg Roll Dress

Melania Trump Never Fails to Amaze Me With Her Style as First Lady.

I know that you’ve gotten really good press on this look. However, Melania, this pastel pink dress would be perfect for Mar-a-Lago , your Palm Beach resort, where the little boys are all dressed in blazers and the little girls in Lilly Pulitzer dresses.

Not at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

 Can you say inappropriate?

eastereggroll

Is that a cocktail dress?

You need people around you that can tell you when something just doesn’t work. It’s too frothy and tight and matchy-matchy.

In comparison, here is one of Michelle Obama’s Easter Egg Roll outfits:

obamaeaster

She just looks fun and approachable and wearing something that children can run up to and not worry about messing up.

The Easter Egg Roll visitors are not just VIP children. They’re the cities’ ‘regular’ children and those  from the surrounding schools.

Melee, if I may be so bold as to call you by my new nickname for you…. you need to just need to bring it down a couple of notches. You are way TOO FORMAL!

I feel bad because you seem so ill at ease at any of these social functions.

I know you didn’t sign up for this whole presidential thing, however, it appears your husband, the great Donald Trump, didn’t take your feelings into this. So, you have no choice but to plow through.

You are a beautiful woman and I don’t think you needed to photoshop or airbrush your official white house portrait as was obviously done. That sounds like another wonderful idea from the Donald. Heaven forbid a wrinkle should show up.

melania photoshop

I have no idea what kind of person you are. I can’t even get a glimpse. Everything is planned down to the wisp of your hair.

As for Barron, your son, he needs to stand up straight and get a haircut.

Thanks,

HAUTEBUTCH CLOTHING IS MY NEW FASHION OBSESSION

I Keep Lurking around the wonderful clothing line of HauteButch trying to figure out what will be my first purchase.

This was the picture that initially got my attention:

Cadet-Blue-Horizontal-Striped-Shirt6

Here is the description of this incredible line:

Tomboy Style Clothes- Lifestyle : Dapper stud Style Masculine Apparel.

I can’t tell you how much I love this line, which includes everything from wedding wear to tanks and everything in between, including shoes and jewelry.

Established in 2013 by Karen Roberts, who found the lack of high quality masculine clothing for women, ended up starting her own company.

Karen-Roberts

Karen Roberts is the founder of HauteButch.

Karen Roberts: I decided it was important based first on my own lack of fashionable alternatives as a professional butch woman, followed by the expressed, shared frustration of my peers. Our fit and style preferences were not met in the mainstream retail arena and we weren’t necessarily welcome in the men’s department. I wanted clothes that I could relate to and feel confident in. The mission of the brand along with the collection continues to evolve.

Influenced by designers including Phillip Lim, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Vivienne Westwood and Yohji Yamamoto, the HauteButch collection consists of button-up shirts, jackets, shoes and accessories such as bow ties and hats. HauteButch is also about to release tuxedo shirts, trousers and military-inspired vests.

By the way, this clothing is also worn by straight men and women. No one is excluded.

Below is an example of their quality pullovers:

Navy HauteButch SFNYLA Pullover:

Garment Specifications

  • 5.4 oz., pre-shrunk 100% cotton
  • Double-needle stitching throughout
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder taping
  • Rib cuffs
  • Seamed collar

Navy-SFNYLA-Pullover-Front

This sells for $34.99 to $36.00 and goes up to a Size 4X.

 

By the way, the HautchButch team is thrilled now to announce their partnership with Olivia Lesbian Travel.

 

The HauteButch line consists of so much more, such as::

Dress Shirts | Vests | Sportswear | Footwear | Ties

Don’t forget to get some great jewelry also.

This Pride Package set is on a 50% sale from $110.00 to $59.99.

 

hautebutchjewelry

Boatswain’s Mate Bangle

hautebuttchbangle

This sells for $38.00.

 

 

 

There is so much more to see and order. You will love this fashion line and they DO carry the larger sizes!

There is help with sizing and their blog is just so much fun to follow.

Believe me, this line is just going to get more and more popular. Take a minute and check out this great site!

Happy shopping!

A Review: Moxi Blu Plus Sized Bikinis Have Hit Walmart

The Gorgeous Moxi Blu Plus Sized Bikinis Have Come to Walmart and You Are Going To Love Them!

One of the newest, brightest stars in the Plus-Size swimsuit arena is Moxi Blu . They are  going to make a huge impression on those of us who never believed we would ever be able to wear a two-piece swimsuit.

Moxi Blu is a private label designer

They have a brand new collection currently available exclusively in the brick-and-mortar Walmart stores on June 1st and will not be available online.

There is also an online collection available at walmart.com Go to http://bit.ly/1qCUpB7.

These swimsuits are, quite simply, the most gorgeous swimsuits I’ve seen in a long time.

This is affordable, plus-sized swimwear at it’s best and Moxi blu is so proud that plus size star, Barbara Ferreira, was one of their first Moxi Blu models.

The colors are so vibrant and, even, without a tan, look great.

THIS IS THEIR BRAND NEW COLLECTION.

These are separates that you can mix and match as you wish.

Below is just one of their swimsuit combinations and the one that I tried on:

 

Moxi Blu Women's Plus-Size Cropped Bikini Top $13.00
Moxi Blu Women’s Plus-Size Cropped Bikini Top $13.00
Moxi Blu Women's Plus-Size Shirred High-Waisted Swimsuit Bottom $13.00
Moxi Blu Women’s Plus-Size Shirred High-Waisted Swimsuit Bottom $13.00
Moxi Blu Women's Plus-Size Piped Retro Bikini Top $13.00
Moxi Blu Women’s Plus-Size Piped Retro Bikini Top $13.00

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How did Moxi Blu come to be? 

The collections are designed with a huge team including design, technical and print designers. We design 2 collections a year, often inspired by our favorite muses and forecasted trends. Once we know our themes, we work on the style and prints that fit. Often, this means lots of sketches and shopping for inspiration (this year we came back from Coachella with so much cali inspo!) 

These are soooo sexy and lovely with just the right amount of skin showing and you are going to love them.

This color is:  Tropical Print

There are other colors and designs all to be found at Walmart starting today!

One of the things I love is that these are so well made. I love the cups in the tops and the lining in the bottoms which make them just that much more comfortable (the coral color is the lining.).  I’ve had many expensive swimsuits and they, also, have this kind of lining:

moxiblulining

I would have no problem wearing the cropped top or the bikini bra with a sarong. The fit  is so good and I felt fine and secure wearing them.

These come in sizes 1X – 4X.

moxibluhomepic5This is the bikini top and the shirred high-waisted swimsuit bottom.

As soon as I put this top on, I fell in love.

It felt like a custom swimsuit top and I absolutely cannot wait to wear it out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

moxibluhomepic600This is the cropped bikini top and the  shirred high-waisted swimsuit bottom.

I would have thought that I would have liked this one the best, but, I actually liked the bikini top better.

Still…not bad for $30.00 or less.

At this time, the swimsuits are only available in the United States, however, the plan is to eventually sell them in Canada and around the World.

As far as the fit goes, I think they tend to run a little bit small and the cropped top is not as supportive as I would have liked, however, that can be fixed with wearing a sport bra or bandeau bra underneath.

I also feel that I could wear this out with different bottoms, like jeans and shorts.

All the pieces are absolutely gorgeous and I think you’re going to love them as I have!

Review: Skechers D’Lites Walking Style Clog

The Skechers  D’Lites Walking Style clog is the most comfortable shoe in the world.

I know that sounds like an exaggeration, however, I’ve bought the Skechers D’Lites over and over.  The only place I’ve been able to find them is at Famous Footwear. They weren’t even in stock at the Skechers store.

Admittedly, their comfort is due to the fact that their heel is a bit higher and their memory foam works so well for those with a high arch.Skechers most comfortable shoes

 

 

DescriptionKeep a sunny disposition in the D’Lites Bright Sky Memory Foam Clog from Skechers.

Smooth leather upper in an athleisure walking clog sneaker style

  • Stitching accents and synthetic overlays
  • Contrast colored edging trim
  • Side S logo details
  • Metal stud trim
  • Slip-on entry with lowered back
  • Padded tongue and collar
  • Soft fabric lining, Air Cooled Memory Foam cushioning insole
  • Lightweight shock absorbing midsole
  • Flexible rubber traction outsole, 1 and 1/4 inch built-in heel
  • Available in Wide Widths

Another reason that I love these is that they’re easy to just kick off and be barefoot. My feet are so bad that I can’t stand to have a shoe that’s got a backing to it for long.

I don’t need my orthodics because of the Skechers D’Lites’  high arch and great cushioning insole.

You can get them in Wide Sizes: Women’s D’Lites Bright Sky Memory Foam Wide Clog in sizes 5.0 X-Wide to 7.0 X-Wide and 9.0 X-Wide. They sell for $54.99.

These are also available in Medium sizes HERE. I decided to go with a Medium because last time I ordered these in a Medium, they fit perfectly even though I almost always need a Wide size.

These Skechers sell for $54.99 and I got them for $46.74.  I don’t know if I had a promo code or if they were on sale and spent $55.83 total. They are worth every penny.

Customer Rating: 23/23 give it a 5 star rating.

I really think most people would really love these!

HAPPY SHOPPING!

My New Fabulous HipsandCurves Super Soft Oversize Wide Neck Tee

HipsandCurves:  My new wonderful Super Soft Oversize Wide Neck Tee

I’m trying so hard to be on a budget and HipsandCurves.com just gets me every time.

I did my original Hips & Curves post HERE. You can also see how great it looks when you have taken the time to get the right size. (As usual, I was in too much of a rush).

That T-Shirt was going to be mine and I ordered it right away.

Yes, it’s soft and gorgeous and the I love the open neck.

The only thing was that I didn’t check the sizing and it’s a tad bit large. Actually, a lot large.

I am a solid 2X and I ordered a 2X and it definitely is too large as seen below.

oversized tee plus size

 

Description: A wardrobe essential. Our super soft tee is oversize for a comfy, relaxed fit and features a wide neckline to show off your neck and shoulders. It makes a great sleep shirt or pairs perfectly with jeans or leggings.

 

Yes, I’m aware that I look absolutely ridiculous in this shirt.

I’m keeping it, however, because I think I can make it work for me and I don’t feel like giving it back. lol.

While this can work as a sleep shirt, I think I’m going to use it at the pool.

I’m sorry for my horrible picture (I still can’t work a camera), however, I must say the Tee  looks even better in person.  Again, It is sooooo soft.

I tried to shrink it by putting it in the dryer and, maybe, there was just a tiny amount of shrinkage. If there was, I can’t tell a difference. Of course! The material is just made so well.

Hips and Curves are pros. I received the shirt within days of ordering and everything was in perfect shape.

This costs $24.95 and comes in sizes 1X-4X.

 

**I am an affiliate of hips and curves whereby I receive a small commission on items sold from my links. My views are my own and I paid for this with my own money. No stipulation is placed on my review.

Sunday Funday Nailpolish : Beautiful Essie Spring Color

I was looking for a great Spring nailpolish and came upon the wonderful ‘Sunday Funday’.

Essie has some of the best nail polish colors around and is pretty much the only brand I use.

I came upon this Essie nailpolish called Sunday Funday.

On the Essie website, it’s described as a Tangerine coral crush shimmer.

One coat is enough, actually, and it doesn’t need a top coat.

I did, of course, put on 2 coats and a top coat and I loved it.

I’ve had this on for almost 2 weeks now and has just started to really chip yesterday.

If you like bright nail polishes, I think you’ll love this one.

Happy Shopping!
