PEACH AND PLEATS


OUTFIT INFO:
PEACH BLAZER: DILLARD'S
PLATINUM SILK PLEATED SKIRT: CARMEN MARC VALVO 
SANDALS: MODERN VINTAGE 
SUNNIES: KENNETH COLE 
BELT: TARGET
Right now I am just using a Sony Cyber-Shot point and shoot camera. Although it is a great compact camera I don't think its doing the colors and fabrics of my outfits any justice (this skirt has beautiful gold threads in it) so I think I will have to break down and buy a SLR. Any suggestions? 
I was skimming through the June edition of Elle when I came across an article titled "CHANGING SHAPE" by Joe Zee. If you are a full-figured woman you have got to check out this article. When you 1st click the link it will open up to the article. To view the fabulous plus size designs modeled by the beautiful Tara Lynn you have to click SEE THE SLIDE SHOW. I believe there are 8 slides. My faves are by Jedda-Kahn, Kara Janx, Dana Maxx and Leila Shams (her skirt is AMAZING)!! The link is here.

Hmmm....SLR's? I own a Nikon D3000 so, I'm all about the Nikons! Their so easy to use especially for a beginner camera but some people like Canons too! Go to a store and get a feel for the cameras see which fits your hands better, price range, etc!

I loveeee that beautiful blazer Ms. Kiah, you look totally beautiful as usual!

:)

with love,

I love this on you. The skirt is just too too cute. I love ANYTHING with pleats. I noticed that you get alot of your blazers from Dillards??? Am I slipping? I've never bought a blazer from there.

I'm a fan of your style, that we know. About the camera, have you tried asking on a blogger platform. You get great advice and maybe even buying tips. I upgraded to an in-between version, I'm still not ready for the big works yet.
