It’s very important to me that I remain environmentally conscious. Buying second hand has allowed me to be frugal and feeling good about reusing. Just like anyone, I like to keep my wardrobe fresh. My favorite way to do so is through repurposing!
In this video I show you how to turn outdated dresses into one vintage peplum dress…
Our lady Adele is at it again! At last night’s 2012 Grammy Awards Adele swept the awards aisle with her stunning voice and dashing beauty. Taking home six Grammy Awards, including Song and Record of the Year, as well as Album of the year for “21.” After Adele’s publicized vocal chord surgery a few months back, many were anxious to hear Adele’s timeless roll out. During last night’s performance, it’s safe to say she is healing up quite fine…
Seeing last night’s Grammy performance had me wondering if this is still Adele? You know- the curvy plus size Adele that everyone has embraced for exactly who she is…
It seems the March 2012 issue of VOGUE feels that regardless of international fame and acceptance, she needed a Photoshop job. How do you feel about the over edited skinny magazine version of Adele?
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bring me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship bare “
If you’ve ever turned on the radio, television, or existed anywhere in the last year, I’m sure you’ve heard these lyrics belted by the beautiful Adele. The opening to her song, “Rolling in the Deep,” that feels more like an opening to her bare heart.
Adele lays down her lyrics with such conviction. Words that when read, feel as though they were ripped from the deepest sections of her diary. From our diaries…
Mixed with her heavy range of vocals, Adele’s songs are circles of life and romance that we can all relate to. Fear, love, heartbreak, strength, and realization. She has a way of leaning in, and going right for your heart…leaving you breathless, with your chest pinned under the weight of her genuine passion.
Last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, I could feel that fervor more than ever. Adele brought a level of vulnerability that just isn’t seen at an MTV awards show. Not to mention that she actually sang! Yea, for once a performer wasn’t lip syncing.
This is Adele singing the heart wrenching song, “Someone Like You.”
Adele doesn’t hold back! This goes for anything that she does in her life. Her storybook pages are always left out for others to explore. She is consistently unfeigned, reminding us how human these celebrities are. Also showing a world of plus size women and girls that there is no size that could possibly define your beauty or your strengths!
Adele is also one serious plus size fashion icon. Keeping her style to simple but stunning vintage inspired pieces. She is always radiant, and classy in figure flattering dresses.
She has curves, a phenomenal voice, poetic lyrics, and an attitude like no other. She isn’t your typical plastic pop star, because she’s an artist. She puts dedication into her art, rather than focusing on her body and theatrics. Adele is one lady that constantly reminds plus size women all over the world just how beautiful you are when you let go. When you float away from all those expectations, and free yourself in order to be who you really are…
Adele has always been one of our favorites. The plus size songstress is not only known for her soulful sound, she has shown the world that plus size fashion can be chic and sophisticated.
Whether, she is out on the town or walking the red carpet, the 22 year old singer, rivals any of her straight size competition. We love that she mixes vintage inspired looks with modern pieces. This is a great way to save money: great thrift store finds + expensive classic investment pieces.
In honor of her new single “Rolling in The Deep” and her new album, “21″, that hits stores February 22nd, we decided to take a closer look at her style.

Adele’s outfit at the 2009 Grammys is the epitome of her style. The 50s-inspired A line dress, mixed with the structured green jacket, shows how cool mixing old and new can be.
The red dress paired with this timeless plus size blazer will be the perfect outfit for work or fun. Adele is known for her element of surprise; she always wears something interesting. The fact that this blazer is black and white, will make you the most fashionable girl in the room.
