For afternoon shopping you need to be super comfortable with splashes of colors and prints together. Of course you may want to wear heels but ALWAYS have your flats on standby especially for outlet mall shopping or a day of thrifting and flea markets.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE COLORS!!! A weekend date night is a great time to wear colors to express your true self. Pairing the colors with black and white accent pieces are a great way to make a bold statement!
The boutique will cater mostly to the “Curvy Girls” since that is what I know best as I am definitely a curvy girl. I will sometimes offer youth boy items as I sometimes buy my son too many items.
Where do the items in the boutique come from? Most items are thrifted or purchased at closet sales. Most of the items are gently worn and sometimes brand new and never worn. Think of it as thrifting online.
How much do the items cost?I want to make this boutique extremely affordable so the item are priced as such. You all know that I am big on keeping as many coins in your pockets as possible. I will include the price along with the shipping for each item within the description.
How do I purchase? All you need to do is leave your email address below the item on Instagram or send me a direct message with the piece you want and I will send you a Paypal invoice – it as simple as that!
My favorite day of the week is Friday! It is the ending of the work week and the beginning of the weekend. Another thing I love about Fridays is that in my office it is casual dress day.
As the weather is getting colder in the DMV it is time to pull out the layers, jackets and boots. I absolutely HATE cold weather but the one thing that I do like about the colder temps is that I get to wear scarves! I love, love, love scarves. There are so many ways to wear them and accessories any outfit.
For Friday that just passed, I chose to wear neutral colors and accent with black & white stripes.
Something that you will come to learn about me is that I RARELY pay full price for any article of clothing or shoes. I am big on thrift shopping, closet sales, and clearance racks.

Today I stepped out to The Shopaholic Suite event that was hosted by Kim of Curvy CEO in Silver Spring, MD. The event was amazing – you do not know what you missed out on, if you were not there! Not only did I get to find some statement pieces for my wardrobe, but I met some really amazing people – More about the event in the next post.
Since I was stepping out to a shopping event, I wanted to be super comfortable so I chose to be Curvy & Twisted:
Ok, yall, I am SO EXCITED to be attending the Shopaholic Suite event this Saturday, November 8 at the Silver Spring Civic Center in Silver Spring, MD from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm! This is an event where I will have the chance to meet some wonderful bloggers AND update my wardrobe all at the same time…This is so exciting that I am glad I am sitting down, otherwise, I might faint!
The bloggers that will be selling items from their closets are:
My friend and collegue Cyrstal really knows how to incorporate her afro into her office style.
She is gorgeous and I definitley have afro envy! Crystal always dresses impeccably and knows how to accessorize her looks. With the weather getting cooler putting a long colorful jacket over a simple black dress is a great way to update your look for the fall.
The thing that I love most about her is that she is not afraid to try different styles with her natural hair. She will definitely be featured on Naturally Curvaceous again!
What Crystal is wearing: Dress – BCBG, Jacket – Angie, Boots – Sketchers
Oh, how how I LOVE animal prints! I love the way that they can be the main statement piece of your outfit or the best supporting accessory. Animal prints have been around as long as I can remember and it does not seem that they are going any where any time soon.
I am trying to decide which type of animal print shoe I need for the fall. Which one should I add to my wardrobe?
My name is Yani and I am brand new to the blogging scene. I am starting this blog to share my thoughts on natural hair, being curvaceous, finding style bargains in thrift stores or flea markets, weight loss (or lack there of), my love of food, which could be the problem with the weight loss and just my random thoughts on anything that may pop into my mind.
I currently reside in Capitol Heights, MD. I am the mother of just one 10 year old boy who is the love of my life. I am recently engaged so I will not be offering any dating advice but I may give my thoughts on how to keep a relationship going.
I am a very simple woman that likes to keep as many “coins” in my pocket as possible. So I will share some of my frugal ways with you in hopes to keep the “coins” in your pocket too.
So sit back, relax, read, make comments and please share this blog with your friends!
