SLAYCATION LOOK BOOK #2

RETRO BABE 



SWIM suits are my favorite part of summer. Its such a chance to make a fashion statement with color and patterns that you may not use the rest of the year. Like a lot of makeup artists black is my color of choice, thrown in with some beige and blush tones now, but in the summer i can wear hot coral and florals , as well as a lot of leopard print; even though i kind of "ODEE" on leopard all year round. This particular swim look is one of my favorites. the Hot Coral shade of this top is fresh and summery while the black lines and silhouette give it a retro and sexy Marilyn Monroe vibe that i adore. this top is originally from ASOS from last summer, so let me break down the look and give you multiple options to get the look for your budget and taste. 







the bottoms as you know are my fave black high waist bottoms from forever 21. i love that this top can be strapless or stap-ful ? hahah anyway, i love the versitility. I've lined out some options to get the look below.





This forever 21 top is the best. i have it in this hot pink as well as in black and white. its afforable, comfortable and super cute!! 



this top looks EXACTLY like the one from F21, i haven't purchased from this website, but for $20 bucks, i would definitely give it a shot !





this top from target has a really cool sporty vibe that could go from beach to park easily. love the colors as well, and the straps seem really supportive.

FFF WEEK Recap 2016







Full Figured Fashion Week 2016


I had such an amazing week. I went to three VIP and blogger events for FFFWEEK2016. This was my first year attending events as a blogger. It means so much to be invited to events as an influencer because it makes me feel like all my hard work is paying off! 
I'm so glad I'm able to share these experiences with you all ! Make sure you are following me on snapchat at GabriellaGlamou to stay updated!
Let me get into the goods!

On June 15 I went to Avenue's Feel the love Blogger Breakfast downtown. The amazing women from Avenue showed us exclusives from the upcoming fall collections. the SHOES omg the shoes!!!

On Friday I went to the Lord & Taylor for a fashion show and an exclusive blogger green room reception.

I met so many amazing bloggers at these events! As usual I ran into Maddy from Plus Model Mag (pictured above), she is such a doll! Make sure to follow her !

Lets get into the FASHION!

ITS SUMMER IN NYC !! SO THAT MEANS CROP TOPS!!!
I love crop tops with high waist skirts and pants so let me show you how I repurposed my two favorite pieces right now and how i wore crop tops to both events!! 

My go to pieces right now are my nude heels from forever 21

and my blush trench coat from BooHoo

For my first outfit (pictured above) I wanted to wear a pair of Asos Curve pants I've had for a while and wanted to wear them before it got too hot in NYC. I also just picked a really cute white crop top from F21 (shown on my YouTube channel here >Forever 21 Plus size Summer Haul
It worked out so perfectly that the pants matched the white crop top and I loved the end look! if you follow me on snapchat you would know I originally was going to wear a leopard print skirt with the top but I wanted to avoid the chub rub lol, so pants made it easier.




Second Outfit I ended up using the same staple pieces like I said I'm obsessed with blush and nude right now.
I went with all black that was super comfy and sexy. I paired a really cute bralette from Asos with really cute black leggings from avenue that I got at the event on Wednesday. Simple and sexy, an outfit like this is so easy and diverse you can dress it up or down for any event.

After the Lord & Taylor event I made my way to the Dream Hotel for the vivacity sportswear lounge.
The owner Vivian is so amazing, she talked about her brand and why its so important to her to have created her brand for women of all sizes to have comfortable and sexy fun sports wear that can be transitioned into all day wear. I was able to meet one of my long time inspirations Rosie Mercado.
please look her up!!

SLAYCATION LookBook #1



Vacation SLAYcation look book # 1.



I LOVE THIS LOOK. This is for the girl who's a little daring but still needs a good cover up. This cover up is flawless!! From WALMART!!


Yes girl.

You heard that right. The entire bathing suit is from FOREVER 21. They still have the top available in pretty much EVERY COLOR. It's the perfect halter or strapless or anything top. You can wear it strapless or twist into the shape I did here by criss -crossing the straps and giving a completely new and edgy look! The color is gorgeous on tan skin! This cover up is super light weight and feels so comfortable even when it's 90 degrees! I was in scorching Puerto Rico ! So I'm telling you from experience !
