IT’S SEPTEMBER Y’ALL. This means fall is on its way! Yeah, I know that it’s still hot as Hades here in Louisiana, but I figure if I start dressing like fall is coming, it will eventually pop up. As usual, my typical fall obsession includes dresses, tights, LOTS of boots and flats, and tough-girl addons like army jackets and leather coats.
Thanks to The Full Figured Chest, I found this wonderful plus-size store online called Pink Clove. They have some of the greatest dresses I’ve found! My favorites are this claret lace dress, the floral dress, and my absolute favorite is that tartan dress. I also love this deep green tea dress from ASOS Curve. All of these would be stunning with tights and these distressed ankle boots, along with great stud earrings, lots of stackable rings, and patterned tights! They would also go great with pointed toe flats.
We’re getting TONS of new gorgeous things in at Bra Genie and I couldn’t be more in love with fall lingerie. I’m particularly fascinated with the styles that I’m seeing from Prima Donna, Panache, and Elomi this season. The colors ranges are perfect. Panache is coming out with some soft muted tones, but they’re earthy and a little deep, like the tea-rose Jasmine and the mint Ariza set here. Elomi is a little bolder and brighter, as evidenced by the red Renee and brilliant turquoise Betty set. Prima Donna is keeping it classic with deep jewel tones, like this encre Belleville, or classic with the black Deauville (which I got recently and I ADORE).
As much as I adore my Elomi styles, I’ve had the luxury of getting a few Prima Donna sets over the past few months and I LOVE them. I have the Madison in scarlet and vanilla, and I just got the Deauville in black. I really do love how they feel on – as much as they cost, I really believe they are worth every penny. I’m really thinking of ordering the Prima Donna Twist “Oh La La” for myself in Miss Cherry, along with the matching brief…however, since we don’t carry this style at the store, I’m iffy to order it without trying it on. Does anyone else have this style? Does it run true to size?
I’ve been rewatching Black Books on Netflix for the past week. This is one of my favorite comedy shows. Black Books stars Dylan Moran as Bernard Black, a disheveled, crotchety, drunk, chain-smoking bookstore owner who hates customers and spends most of his days in a blind funk griping and groaning to anyone who’s unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of his tongue. The only person who can tolerate him is Fran, the shop owner next door. One drunken evening, he hires Manny Bianco, a disgruntled accountant who is looking for another job. He wakes up the next morning to find Manny is more than capable in handling the store, but he doesn’t want him there. Many hijinks ensue, lots of which are just plain ridiculous. I am constantly laughing out loud while watching this show. If you’re a fan of British comedies like I am, definitely check this one out. There’s only 18 episodes total, and each episode is only 30 minutes long, which makes this a quick watch.
And yes, I know Bernard is not supposed to be an attractive character, but I can’t help it. The Irish accent, the tousled hair, the dark wardrobe…if he would have been in a goth club in the 90s, I probably would have asked him out.
