Shop the NEW Naturally Curvaceous Boutique!

Brand spanking NEW: I have decided to open the Naturally Curvaceous Boutique!

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!

An example of item currently for sale:

Blazer  Sweater

Booties  Jordans

I invite you to take a look at the boutique and share it with your “Curvy Girl” friends, http://instagram.com/naturallycurvaceous

Let me know if you have any questions.

Happy Shopping!

Office Style: Neutral & Stripes

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.

The Look:

  • Drape jacket by Inspire (purchased at a closet sale for $20)
  • Black & white striped shirt by Forever 21 (purchased at a thrift store for $2)
  • Jeggings by Mossimo (purchased at a thrift store for $3)
  • Boots by Target (purchased on Ebay for $20)
  • Necklace (bought at a closet sale for $5)
  • Crossbody bag by Urban Expressions (purchased at a closet sale for $10)
  • Scarf (purchased at a thrift store for $3)

My entire outfit cost under $100!!! Now that is what I am talking about! Looking stylish all while keeping some coins in your pocket!

Get to know Yani of NaturallyCurvaceous.com

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!
