10 Places To Find Plus Size Lingerie

With Valentine’s Day looming upon us I know many of you are making your plans. Maybe you are even planning on spicing your night up with some lingerie, that is if you know where to find it in your size. Finding nice lingerie in plus sizes can be challenging. That is why I wanted to give you this list of places to find plus size lingerie.

I will be including some pictures that link to products that are personal favorites from each of the retailers.


1 Cacique from Lane Bryant

No matter your opinion on Lane Bryant’s clothing style there is no denying they are a standout in the industry when it comes to their selection of underwear and lingerie from their Cacique line. And if you are lucky enough to live close to one of their stand alone Cacique stores then you have a large selection to actually try on before you buy.


2. Hips & Curves

Hips & Curves are long time online retailers serving the lingerie and costuming needs of plus size women. They also have the occasional piece of clothing, most of which is really well made.

3. Curvy Girl Lingerie

If you aren’t familiar with Curvy Girl Lingerie they are a plus size lingerie store located in San Jose, California. If you don’t live near their store, no worries they have a website. Worried about whether an item will fit? Don’t worry about that either, they got you. Crystal the owner is a plus size woman on a mission and she is there to help. She often has Facebook live post where you can ask questions. She post pictures with real plus size women wearing the items she sells. And if you are still unsure, just call the store.

4. Amazon

You can’t really be surprised at this point that Amazon made the list. They really have just about everything you can think of and that includes lingerie. Whether you are looking for something like a bra and panty set or you want a super sexy corset, Amazon has it.

5. Frederick’s of Hollywood

Frederick’s Of Hollywood and plus sizes have had a very up and down kind of rocky relationship over the years. At one point they had a very extensive collection of plus size offering both online and in store. Currently the selection is minimalistic and to the best of my knowledge only online. I hesitated to include them in this list, but I wanted people to know they do have plus sizes even if they aren’t a lot at the moment. If they don’t have your size or what you want in plus size, I encourage you all to email them to add more plus sizes back into their offerings. I do this because I know from my past experiences with Frederick’s of Hollywood that they do offer a quality product.

6. The Violet Vixen

If you’re looking for something more unique or for cos-play, then look to the Violet Vixen. They carry a selection of corsets and lingerie and accessories in both misses and plus sizes. They also carry clothing, but plus sizes are very limited in those.

7. Ashley Stewart

Like a sexy older sister, Ashley Stewart always has something in her closet for your special occasion. Valentine’s Day is no different. After you check out the selection of lingerie, don’t forget to check out their everyday clothing as well.

8. Simply Be

Just like all the other types of clothing Simply Be carries, they have a large selection in their lingerie. They have styles for all tastes and very size inclusive in sizes 6 to 28. Though order a little earlier if you are in the US since they ship from the UK.



9. Her Room

I think Her Room is like the Ikea of lingerie. That may sound odd, but they really have everything you could possibly need including hard to find items and sizes. And don’t forget to pick up something sexy or practical for the man in your life at their sister site His Room.

10. Figuresque

Though they have been around since 2003, Figuresque is a company I personally only recently discovered. They are very size inclusive offering items in size small to 6X. And great news they ship worldwide.

Why Amazon Prime Just Became A Necessity If You Are Plus Size

Amazon prime membership

Amazon prime membership

I am sure at this point that if you use Amazon, or maybe even if you don’t, you have at least heard about Amazon Prime. And the majority probably know at least the basics of what you get with it. But for anyone who is not familiar some of the more popular features are:

  • Prime Delivery – FREE Two-Day Shipping
  • Prime Video – Stream thousands of movies and TV shows at no additional cost
  • Kindle First – Choose one Kindle book of the six Picks each month for free
  • Prime Reading – Enjoy unlimited reading on any device

And they have so much more. For a complete list of what you get with Amazon Prime, you can view that here.

It seems like Amazon is constantly adding new features for their members, and surprisingly not raising the price of membership. If you are not already a prime member, Amazon’s latest announcement of what they will be offering soon should have you running to sign up if you are a plus size woman. Coming soon is Amazon Wardrobe, where you try before you buy and free easy returns. Currently it is still in the beta stage and by invitation only, but you can sign up to be notified when it goes live.

It will work very much like many of the online styling boxes, except you will be the one picking what you try, and there is no extra cost over your prime membership. Here is how it is going to work.

  1. Pick three or more items from across clothing shoes and accessories.
  2. You have a seven day try on period to find the best fit at home.
  3. Only pay for the items you keep, and return using the free label and box provided.

As someone who hasn’t had great success with those subscription styling boxes, I can’t wait to see how this service plays out with Amazon. I really think its a must have for plus size women because of the doubt it removes in the purchasing process. No longer do you have to worry about sizing being wrong on Amazon and the difficulty of trying to return it. What a relief it will be to so many people. I do hope that name brands will be included, but only time will tell.

Tell me in the comments what you think about this new benefit from Amazon Prime. Will you be using the service? Has this convinced you to sign up for Prime?

Inside The Dressing Room – City Chic And Forever 21 Fall 2017

Inside the dressing room with My Plus Size Life

Inside the dressing room with My Plus Size Life


Its been a while since I have taken you inside the dressing room with me. But I had to run into the mall to take something back the other day and I noticed that my local Macy’s is finally carrying a few City Chic items. I had a little time to spare, so I thought I would try on some things I had my eye on and take some pictures to share with all of you. I visited Macy’s and Forever 21, so there will be some variety in styles.

Now I did try the City Chic items on at Macy’s (there is no local City Chic store where I live), however I will be linking directly to City Chic. Based on what I have seen City Chic has better sales on items than what Macy’s can offer you. Plus shipping is free with City Chic even for returns. You only get free shipping at Macy’s if your purchase is high enough or if they have the item you were looking for in store and you can pick it up there.

Just like any other fashion post I do, I will share what size I tried on as well as any relevant information on fit or quality. For reference I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Torrid or Lane Bryant. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″ And I wear 40DDD bra.

So lets start with the City Chic items I tried on at Macy’s. They didn’t have a lot of items available, so I only tried on two here.

City Chic plus size So Fancy Fit And Flare Dress

So Fancy Crochet Fit & Flare Dress

I am in a L or 20 here. It has spaghetti straps, so I obviously do not have on the right bra for this dress, but besides that it fit well in the bust. In general I find the sizing and fit to be essentially the same as Torrid’s. And just like Torrid’s they do occasionally have items that are exceptions to this rule. I probably won’t buy this for me because of the pleats. I don’t really like how this type of pleating lies on me. I think this dress would look best on someone that’s body shape is an inverted triangle.

At first I thought this was going to be a bad choice for fall/winter. However after trying it on, it is way warmer than expected. There seems to be almost a double lining. So add a shrug and it should be fine.

Lady Victoria Lace Top from City Chic

Lady Victoria Lace Top

Again I am showing this in a size L or 20. I thought the fit on this one was perfect for me. There was enough extra room at the bottom that this could also work for someone who is more of a pear shape. It does have a built-in cami that is black, but it could easily be removed if you needed or wanted to. I really loved the details on this top, from the collar to the little flutter sleeves. I could easily see this being styled several different ways. And I will most likely purchase this sometime in the near future.


Now lets take a look at what I tried over at Forever 21. Since Forever 21 is a juniors store, that means their plus section is junior plus. I usually have to size up to a 3X, but because of variances in items there are some items I need a 2X. Occasionally I would need larger, but 3X is currently where their sizing starts. (Side note, if you see something blurry and white on some of the pictures, it’s not the clothing. Forever 21 just has dim lighting and really smudged mirrors.)


Plus Size Lace Up Sleeve Dress

I tried this on in a 3X. I thought this dress fit okay. The sleeves fit really well, and I liked the lace up detail. The body fit a little snugger than I personally would like. I might have been okay with the tightness if it were done in a different material. But at $23.00 there is an element of “you get what you pay for”.

I tried on with it this Sequin Hooded Bomber Jacket. I can not find this on their site, but if you like it, its worth looking in your local store. Mine had lots of these. These jackets should work for any body type.

Plus Size Lace-Up Tube Dress from Forever 21

Plus Size Lace-Up Tube Dress

I also tried this on in a 3X. I actually picked this up initially to try on because I thought it was a skirt. They had it hung oddly. But I decided to go ahead and try it on to share. Again I thought the fit was okay, but in a different way than the previous dress. The top looked and felt like the right tightness, but I didn’t feel like it was secure at the very top. I thought the bottom also looked fine, but it felt very tight across the hips. And the length was indecent in the back. I feel like this would fit someone who is a perfect hourglass the best, and it probably would look good on someone who is an inverted triangle as well.

Plus Size Fuzzy Sweater and Plus Size Lace-Up Mini Skirt

Plus Size Fuzzy Sweater


Plus Size Lace-Up Mini Skirt

I have on a size 3X in both pieces here.

The skirt I thought fit well and was made out of a great fabric. I liked the lace up detail, but I didn’t think they stood out as much once it was put on. I also think it would be better paired with something different from this sweater.

The sweater also fit great, and it felt great on. I think it will work for many body types but will probably look best on someone with and apple shape. This is supposed to be a crop sweater, and since its not a form-fitting one, I was glad it was on the longer side. However since its barely crop length, if you are on the short side it may not read as crop on you. I really loved this sweater, and I would have purchased it, however I noticed it sheds horribly. So be aware of that.

Plus Size Mesh Trim Bralette and Plus Size Sheer Mesh Tee from Forever 21

Plus Size Lace-Up Mini Skirt,
Plus Size Mesh Trim Bralette,


Plus Size Sheer Mesh Tee

The skirt is the same one from the previous outfit.

The bralette is a size 3X. It fit perfectly and I did buy it. It is padded, but removable padding. Honestly the way it is made makes it look more like a crop top rather than a bralette.

The top is in a 2X. I also tried a 3X, but it was really loose on me. I thought this fit well in the 2X. It was comfortable, but again I probably would not pair these tops with this skirt.

Plus Size Stripe Lettuce-Edge Top

Plus Size Stripe Lettuce-Edge Top

This is a 3X. The fit was again perfect in this item. I thought they worked well with the Dark Wash Jeggings from Torrid I had on. It does not call this a crop top on Forever 21’s website, but it definitely fits me the same as the crop sweater I tried on. I did end up purchasing this for myself.


I also wanted to take a minute and give a shout out for Forever 21’s bralettes. In addition to the one I showed here in the post I also tried on and bought their Plus Size Lace Bralette in a size 2X. If I had wanted a tighter fit I probably could have worn a 1X in this one. Probably the most comfortable yet supportive bralette I have tried yet. Looks like they are almost sold out online. I really hope they will consider making them a permanent part of their collection.


As always I want to hear from you. Tell me in the comments below if there is a store you want me to order from or go take you in the dressing rooms with me. I know the frustration of trying to figure out what your size is in a brand. I want to help make that easier for all of you.

Must Have Wide Width and Wide Calf Boots Of Fall/Winter 2017

Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties from Fashion To Figure

In the past I have shared with you the best place to find wide calf boots of various widths. But today I want to share with you what is hot right now, and the must have boots for this season that are available in wide widths and/or wide calf. Whether you’re looking for a casual pair of everyday boots or something to make you feel super sexy, this season has it all. With each pair I am sharing I will post the brands description as well as any comments I have and size information.


Right now some of the hottest boots (and clothes) are in lush fabrics like velvet and suede. This is a total trend alert, and I suspect this one will go well on in through the winter. Hope you live in an area that gets cool enough to take part in this one. If you haven’t worn these fabrics before be aware they can get very hot. Here are my top picks for this trend.

 Kimberly Velvet Over The Knee Boot

Kimberly Velvet Over The Knee Boot


Looking for the wow factor? Try these lush, velvet wide width over the knee boots. The almond toe and chunky heel add a little something extra to this stylish boot.

This is from Avenue’s Cloudwalker collection, so they are comfortable as well as stylish. Available in two colors, black and burgundy. Sizes 7 to 13 in wide width. It has approximately a 17 inch circumference along with a lace-up calf and a stretch goring panel for comfort.

Lace up back of the stretch velvet wide calf boots from the AvenueI just got a pair of these myself in black, so expect to see these show up in a few of my styled post this winter. I have to say I was a bit surprised when I received them. It calls them velvet, but in person it feels more like what I would call satin. They went on easier than I expected, and are probably some of the sexiest boots I have ever owned.





Circus by Sam Edelman Velvet Rhinestone Combat Boots

Circus by Sam Edelman Velvet Rhinestone Combat Boots from Torrid


An amazing, exclusive collection at Torrid presented by Circus by Sam Edelman. Rich and sumptuous wine red velvet lends a nostalgic, 90’s twist to these comfortable combat boots. The lace up front features sparkly, shiny rhinestone on the tongue.

I suspect these won’t last long, so if you want them get them soon. They come in sizes 6 to 13 wide width. They do come in half sizes, which don’t see very often. And they are made exclusively for Torrid.




Heavenly Soles Embroidered Ankle Boots

Heavenly Soles Embroidered Ankle Boots from Simply Be


The embroidery trend reaches from head to toe and these soft suede boots from Heavenly Soles are sure to make a statement. All-over embroidery detail, block heel and inside zip. Wear with your favorite denim. Find them at Simply Be.

If you want to hit multiple trends, these are the definite ones for you. They are available in sizes 6 to 11 and widths E and EEE.




Another trend we are seeing this year in boots, and somewhat in clothing just not as much, is bright and bold colors. I am a big fan of bright and bold colors from neon to jewel tones, but we usually just don’t see those sort of tones for fall and winter. So I personally think its great to be able to play with these colors all year round. Here are my favorites for this trend.

Faux Suede Ankle Boot with Block Heel

Faux Suede Ankle Boot with Block Heel from Lane Bryant


A pointed-toe ankle boot from Lane Bryant. It has a faux suede upper and block heel. Elastic goring. Back-zip closure. Padded footbed.

Add a pop of blue to your outfits this season with these fantastic ankle boots. They would look fantastic with everything from jeans to dresses. Available in sizes 7 to 12 wide width.





Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties

Shirleen Color-Block Ankle Booties from Fashion To Figure


The Shirleen ankle booties  from Fashion To Figure give a nod to mod with color-blocked faux suede and a marbleized block heel. Rock this playful statement pair with everything from mini dresses to skinny jeans.

Available in size 7 to 10 wide width. The heel on this one is probably the highest one so far at 3.5 inches, so if that isn’t your thing, this might not be the one to choose.




Heavenly Soles Pointed Ankle Boots

Heavenly Soles Pointed Ankle Boots from Simply Be


Slip into these pointed toe ankle boots from Heavenly Soles and make a statement this season. Soft uppers with v shape detail and finished on a slim heel.

Find these at Simply Be. They are available in sizes 6 to 11 and widths E and EEE.



There are actually a lot of trends hitting at once this season, and I don’t want to end up listing every shoe on the market. So for this last category I want to include some things from various trends, but I think they group well. I think it comes down to the details. Small details, whether it be corset like lacing or embroidery, are a huge thing this season. Here are my picks.


Tall Lace-Up Boot

Tall Lace-Up Boot from Lane Bryant


From Lane Bryant its their tall lace-up boot with a medium block heel. Faux suede. Elastic goring at back stretches for the perfect fit. Side-zip closure.

Available in sizes 7 to 12 in wide widths. While this one is wide widths, I would not recommend this one for someone who needs a wide calf. Lane Bryant’s website says it is a Calf: 13 1/2″ Shaft: 14 5/8″. It is always helpful to know your calf measurement when boot shopping. It will save you a lot of time and frustration.



Lace Up Lace Heel Boots

Lace Up Lace Heel Boots from Torrid


Pick up the call, girl. These boots from Torrid are taking you out for one wild night. The peep-toe, high-heeled, knee-high style gets lucky in sultry black lace and is naughty by nature with a lace up front.

Coming in at 4.75″ high, these heels are definitely the highest on the list. These go beyond just needing to being comfortable walking in heels like the last pair I mentioned being high. You must be experienced with heels to walk in these. But if you can, wow these are hot! They come in both wide widths and wide calf. It comes in 6 to 13. It is available in half sizes as well.



Hamilton Soutache Trim Tall Boot

Hamilton Soutache Trim Tall Boot from the Avenue


From the Avenue’s Cloudwalkers line. Step into luxury with a tall, faux suede wide width boot featuring delicate soutache trim. These boots will be the centerpiece of any outfit.

If you want a boot with some drama but can’t do a heel, then consider these. They don’t specifically say they are made for a wide calf, but the measurement listed is Approx. 17 inch circumference. And boots can typically start to be called wide calf at around 15.5″.

Must Have Beauty Tools And Accessories

top ten beauty tools and accessories

top ten beauty tools and accessories

As many of you know, over the last few months I have been more focused on beauty and health related issues both here on the blog and on my social media. Since my health has been taxed lately I have had to conserve my energy, and the fashion posts in general just take far more time and energy to work on. Since I have been trying so many things, I have some great products to share with you. So I thought it was time to do a top ten post for you. These are things I have tried and fell in love with.

1. Professional Make up Storage Case With straps for Travel

This makeup case is perfect for anyone who is either a professional makeup artist or someone who finds themselves traveling with large amounts of makeup on any type of regular basis. The main area of the case is customizable to fit your needs. It has slotted moveable dividers. This was perfect for taking with me to the Steampunk Symposium. It made it so much easier to keep up with all my makeup. And its a great deal at only $34.89, half the price of anything similar I could find in local stores.


2. Acrylic Eyeshadow Organizer

I have been doing so much organizing with my makeup. When it comes to eyeshadow singles, especially the ones from ColourPop, they can be a pain to figure out what to do with them. These Eyeshadow Organizers have been a lifesaver for that. And they do fit most ColourPop Eyeshadows Perfectly. Each organizer holds 16 shadows.


3. The Vintage Cosmetic Company Smokey Eye Brush Set

This smokey eye brush set from The Vintage Cosmetic Company has quickly become some of my favorite brushes to use for eye makeup. They are intended for smokey eye looks, but they can be used a lot of ways including cut creases. Not only are these brushes a favorite, but a lot of products from this company are a favorite as you will see.


4. Beauty Blending Sponge Infused With Vitamin E from The Vintage Cosmetic Company

vitamin E infused blending sponge

This has become my favorite blending sponges. I have tried lots of different brands of from the top brand Beauty Blender all the way down to some of the cheapest sponges I could find at the Dollar Store. This blending sponge from The Vintage Cosmetic Company is really the best of both worlds when it comes to quality versus price. The quality is very similar to the coveted Beauty Blender, but with the price coming in between $4.00 to $8.00 depending on where you buy them from it is a relief on the wallet. I highly recommend checking out all the products from The Vintage Cosmetic Company. I have tried a lot of their products, and love them. The two shared are just my favorites. But if you love the vintage look and style you will definitely love this company.


5. 15 Hole Square Makeup Brush Drying Rack

I personally got tires of wasting paper towels just for laying out makeup brushes to dry on after cleaning them. This drying rack will save so much money and trees over time. You have to put it together yourself, but it is super easy to do.


6. Eyebrow Scissors from Litfly

Eyebrow Scissors from Litfly

I have only recently started even attempting to do anything with my eye brows. This is mainly because I have always had thick brows that I liked the shape of. But now that I am getting older, my brows have started to thin as well as getting some grays in the mix. In my journey of trying various brow grooming products, I have discover most of them that are designed for trimming your brows are kind of difficult to use and they require a steady hand. However, this particular pair of scissors from Litfly makes things so much easier. The comb guard on one side almost guarantees that you can’t cut your brow hairs down too far and that they will all look even. And because the comb and scissors are built into one, its one less tool to deal with.


7. Reusable Silicone Mask Cover

I have actually reviewed this mask cover for you guys before, and if you would like you can check that review out here. I highly recommend these for anyone who does sheet masking a lot.

8. Silicone Face Mask Brush

Maybe you are more into doing face masks. If you do masks a lot, this may be the tool you want in your life. As great as doing a face mask can make your skin feel, there is always such a mess and constantly having to clean up after application and then again after taking it off. Using one of these silicone brushes for applications not only cuts down on the mess but makes the application itself easier.


9. EasyPAG Round Floral Pencil Holders

So yes, these are technically pencil holders, not a beauty accessory. But they do make for a perfect makeup brush holder. They come in several color options, they are nicely weighted so they don’t tip over easy, and they are about half the price of anything marked to be for beauty products. This is one of those times thinking outside the box pays off.

10. Tony Moly – 5-Layer Cotton Sheet (400pcs)

Tony Moly five layer facial cottons

If you are all about that skin care life, you have to try some of the five layer cotton sheets from a Korean brand. The ones I have so far that I like the best are these from Tony Moly and one from another brand called Huxley. Huxley is a little harder to find though, and pricier. If you have only been exposed to the facial cotton wipes in American drug stores you probably are a little confuses as to why anyone would recommend these as a must have. Its one of those things that honestly till you try it you probably won’t believe it. And just about any Korean bran facial cotton is a step up from the ones you get in America, but if you were comparing the American one to these five layer cottons, its like going to a fast food restaurant versus a five-star fine dining restaurant. No comparison really. The quality is better. No lint at all on these five layer cottons. And each cotton can be pulled apart and used as two separate cottons. So it’s really like getting 80 in this box. No way can you do that with any American facial cotton I have ever tried. Once you have tried these, you will never want to go back.

Amazon Prime Day Picks

If you hadn’t heard it’s Prime Day on Amazon today. Prime Day is when you can get some great deals on products and services sold on and by Amazon for no other reason than being a Prime Member. If you are not already a Prime Member, you can sign up here and try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial. Prime Membership comes with lots of benefits like free two day shipping and Prime Movies and TV shows.

So I wanted to share some of my top picks for Prime Day, that must not be missed.

1  Kindle – Up to 40% Off Kindle Unlimited – readers enjoy unlimited reading from over one million titles on any device.

Shop Amazon Devices – Prime Day Echo Dot only $34.99 – Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker—it can also connect to your speakers or headphones over Bluetooth or through a 3.5 mm audio cable to deliver stereo sound to the speakers you choose. Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more—instantly.

Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo you’re closest to with ESP (Echo Spatial Perception).

A Bathing Suit From Coastal Blue – There is a large selection of sizes and styles of bathing  suits for every woman. Check out my favorite plus size style here. It is a shirred V-neck one piece that normally sells for $79.00, but get it today only for $47.70. It is available is sizes 1X(16/18W) – 3X(24/26W).

daisi Magnifying Lighted Makeup Mirror with Cosmetic Organizer Base – If you are like me and don’t have your own vanity area, these LED lighted mirrors are a great thing to have so you can move to any place in your house to do your makeup. This one from daisi is normally $45.00, but today on Prime day get it for just $15.96.

Greenies Dental Treats for Cats and Dogs – Greenies are consistently the only brand that all of my cats will eat and love. And I like that they are great for their teeth as well. Prices and discount vary based on the product.

Hot Chocolate Design Chocolaticas High Heels He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not Women’s Mary Jane Pump – Hot Chocolate shoes always have the cutest prints and designs, but they aren’t always easy on the wallet. I can tell you this pair $94.99, but I can’t tell you what the sale price will be as the sale hasn’t begun on these yet. Make sure you check these after 6:50 p.m.

Angel caller 925 Sterling Silver Two-tone Cubic Zircon Double Cat Pendant Necklace – You know my love for all things cat, so here is my jewelry pick all my fellow crazy cat ladies. Normally this sells for $19.95. The sale doesn’t start till 4:45 on this one, so check back to see the sale price.

Kikkerland Corkscrew, Wooden Unicorn – Of course you know I wasn’t about to end my list without adding something unicorn. I thought this unicorn corkscrew was cute and unique. It sells for $14.37, but today only you get 20% off at the checkout.

Make sure to tell us in the comments below if there are any items on Prime today that you think we shouldn’t miss.

Hot Must Have Accessories For Summer 2017

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Accessories are those finishing touches that take an outfit from just looking good to making you look really put together. You can even make the plainest of outfits look outstanding with the right accessories. That is why I wanted to share with you my top picks for summer accessories. Some of these I own and some of them are on my personal wishlist.

VK Accessories Thread Ball Dangle Earrings

Thread ball dangle earrings

These thread ball dangle earring from VK Accessories are available in six different colors including the black pair I am wearing. I love them, and I am considering ordering one of the other colors. Hello turquoise! This look is one of the hottest trends in earrings for this season.

Light Blue Ombre Tiered Thread Statement Layered Earrings

Another hot look for the summer are these ombre tiered thread earrings. They are available in seven color options, but I think this light blue color is especially eye catching. I know this is on my wishlist.

Layered Tassel Drop Statement Pendant Necklace

Don’t forget to pick up necklace to match those tiered earrings. The necklace is available in two color options. This particular color combo would work with two of the earring color options.

Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Merry's Fashion Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses

Mirrored sunglasses were definitely hot last year. This year take it the extra step and make it cat eye sunglasses like these from MyBruneiStore. They are available in nine color options, though some colors have a more mirrored effect than others. I have on the C04 BLUE.

Galaxy S5 Case 3D Cartoon Unicorn Soft Silicone Rubber Back Cover Skin for Samsung Galaxy S5

Soft Silicone Unicorn Phone Case

Some people might say a stylish phone case is the only phone accessory you need. And since unicorns are all the rage right now, they might be right with this phone case. My old phone case was wearing out, so I just got this one, and I think its super cute. The link above is to the one that fits my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S5. They are also available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, LG G Stylo/LG LS770/G4 Stylus/G4 Note, iPhone 5 / 5S Case, iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus, and iPhone 7. Depending on which phone you have there is also several color options available.

GUESS Flowers Necklace

Another top trend of the spring and summer is denim and white paired together. But what kind of accessories do you pair with that? Try this flower statement necklace from Guess. I don’t have this exact necklace, but I have something very similar that you will most likely see in a fashion post sometime soon.

Denim Dot Soft Headwrap

While we are talking denim and white accessories, why not try out this really cute headband. I love the vintage feel with the bow and the adorable heart print. This will definitely be on my list to buy soon.


Tell me in the comments below what’s on your must have list for this summer.
