The body positive bag all Latinx ​need

_dsc0249

If there is anything you can say about Latinx is that we find so many euphemisms for everything and anything. I can think of at least 20 different ways to call someone stupid or beautiful. Our body fat is not an exemption to the rule.

Growing up in New York City I have learned so many ways to refer to my muffin top and body rolls. In Ecuador, we call them “guata,” my Dominican friends call them “chichos,” and my Mexican friends called them “lonjas.” The options were endless.

One of my followers recently told me about a tote bag she was very proud of and wanted me to sport around. Once I saw the tote I knew I had to have it.There is no better way to remind myself to love my “guata,””chichos,” or “lonjas” than by wearing a bag that told me so.

The coat I will never stop wearing

_dsc0141

Wearing a (faux) fur jacket automatically makes me feel like a complete bad ass. I’m known for bailing on parties to go watch a movie while snuggling my dog and eating sunflower seeds. This has made it really hard to create this bad ass persona I’ve always wanted. But, recently I was introduced to this amazing faux fur jacket from Torrid and things have never been the same.

Torrid sent this amazing faux fur jacket and I have been wearing it a lot. You can literally wear them with anything and it automatically makes you look so well put together.

This jacket definitely forced me to tap into my inner baddie and be the boss ass bitch I’ve always known I could be. At least until I took it off.

My favorite way to style a summer dress for winter

When I started blogging I thought I would go broke in less than a month. I put so much pressure on myself to make sure I never repeated my outfits. Sadly, many of us can not afford that luxury.

I usually do two big shopping sprees in a year. The first shopping spree covers my outfits for Fall and Winter and the second for Summer and Spring. I found different ways to wear my clothes to make them look different and make sure I can wear them as much as I can. This is a great way to make the most out of your wardrobe. Sometimes I luck out and I can use certain items all year long. This gorgeous summer dress from Lane Bryant is the perfect example.

I bought this dress in the summer and had it on repeat. Summer is over but I still wanted to wear the dress so I decided to layer it over a simple black turtleneck.

The thigh high boots are a great way to keep my legs warm when I wear dresses. To finish the look I draped my favorite leather jacket from ASOS. I love when I make my clothes work all year long. Don’t be surprised if you see me wearing this dress next season.

Ain’t nobody made out of money.
