Ode To Survivors

As you know, it is the month of October, which means it’s time to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness. Despite whatever background, we’ve all in some form-or-fashion, been connected to Breast Cancer. For me, my mother-in-love (HD’s mom) is a true SURVIVOR! A few years ago she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and that’s when her fight began and never gave in… not only did she BEAT breast cancer but most importantly, she gained COURAGE! Here’s my ode to our survivors … you inspire us to be strong! FIGHT TO LIVE!Pink 4Pink 3Pink2Pink 1Pink 5

Birthday Candles & Pink Tulle

Of course I’m still celebrating my birthday. Life is so sweet –why not savor the moment? This outfit post is a little different, everything was custom made or vintage finds so I won’t be able to “tag” the items for shopping but I hope you’re inspired by the outfit. Yes, plus size gals can wear tulle, too! I hope you enjoy my birthday suit.p5p2p3 p6p4 Xo, Triena

The Perfect Color

Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 1.44.09 PM g3g2g1Don’t you love it when you find that color that goes perfectly with your skin tone? I do! I think aqua is one of my go to colors for summer along with bright orange, lime and coral. I look forward to experimenting with fun shades all summer long. This chiffon dress was a steal at a closing boutique. I purchased it at a bargain price –5 bucks! Win! … I love the look of aqua during summer. It adds this goddess glow to the skin, perfect for warmer months. I will share some of my favorite dresses in aqua hues below.

Peg Pants & Lace

Loved the simplicity of the satin-poly blend with my oversized camisole and peg pants. The lace pumps sparked the perfect amount of fiminenity while giving me lasting comfort to knock out a few important tasks. Style Details Below.
