I can't believe that 2013 is just days away. I have had a very challenging year and am looking forward to what the new year has to offer. I want to sincerely thank all of you who support my blog. This is truly a passion for me and words can not express how grateful I am to all my readers. Fancy Curves has only been around for 13 months, but I can honestly say that I have some amazing, dedicated readers. I know your names and know that you have been following me since "A Night Full of Stars" and that means a lot to me. Here are some of my favorite pics of 2012....
Also special thanks to my big homie Samuel Clifton who takes 75% of my pictures. He is so patient and dependable. I truly appreciate he and his amazing paparazzi camera making my non- photogenic self look ok.....LOL.
I was going through my computer cleaning out some of my picture files and ran across these OOTD pictures that I totally forgot to post. I thought it was a cute comfy look so I decided to go ahead and share them.
I paired my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans with this coral cut-out shoulder blouse, my studded Night Walkers and a magazine clutch that I have had forever.
You all already know how much I am in love with Jeffery Campbell shoes. When these heel less Giuseppe like shoes came out over a year ago. I immediately fell in love. You may remember I wore them in my very first post HERE. I literally wear the black ones I own with EVERYTHING, ALL the time, so much so that the sole is starting to look worn...LOL. I bought these nude spiked ones about nine months ago and unfortunately have only wore them maybe five times. I love them to death they just don't go with as many things as my black ones.
I hope you all had a wonderful and restful holiday. We have five more days in 2012 can you believe it??
Happy Christmas Eve!! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. I was unable to be with my family this year because the plane tickets were just way too expensive, so I will be celebrating Christmas here in Atlanta where it's 65 degrees, sunny, and no snow. =0(. I finally got a chance to wear this comfortable pleated skirt that I found at a consignment store when I was home last month visiting my family.
I wanted to be comfortable so I paired it with a cropped chambray shirt that I first wore HERE, studded Converse, and this amazing bone colored studded jacket. You may remember the black one I wore HERE
I have had these sneakers since October and yes this is the first time that I have worn them...SMH. I bought them when my friends and I went to New York City to see Jay Z.
The options for this skirt are endless and I can't wait to dress it up. I love the length and how fluid it is.It was definitely a great $10 spent!
I was folding some clothes in my closet and ran across this sweater with the tags still attached..SMH. I bought it two years ago when I first went to NYC from a store in Soho. Why I am now just wearing it boggles my mind. Clearly more evidence that I really need to make a conscience effort in 2013 to stop being such a clothes hoarder **heavy sigh**
I paired it with my boyfriend jeans, Steve Madden studded leopard pumps, and my new custom made Melody Eshani earrings.
I am so in love with my new hoops. They are incredibly light weight and literally go with everything I wear!
Hey ladies ( and some gents) I am back from a week and a half hiatus. I apologize for being M.I.A, but I have had so much going on in my life that it really got to the point where I had to step back and evaluate some things. I needed a clear mind to make an extremely difficult business decision to "free" myself from some things that were causing me a lot of spiritual, financial, and mental stress. I regrouped this weekend and decided to take a break from my Uggs and sweat pants, and I stepped back into my old fashion forward self.
I decided to recreate an outfit I wore a couple weeks back when I attempted to go to a party with one of my girlfriends. The party was a bust, I had to wait in line ,annnnnnd I wasted an outfit, which as you should already know is a fashionista's biggest pet peeve! I paired my favorite tights with a short/suspender combination that I first wore HERE. I removed the suspenders and added a sweater, wide brim hat, and a jacket/dress with gold details that I thrifted last week for four bucks!
I am so in love with this gold studded clutch that I first wore HERE. It holds and goes with EVERYTHING! I am also a huge fan of hats. Fedoras, snap backs, newsboys, tams, you name it I love them all. I especially love wearing these type of wide brimmed hats in the fall in winter.
As 2012 quickly comes to an end. I am doing a lot of self reflecting in hopes to learn from mistakes I have made, and use them as stepping stones to become stronger and grow. What are some of your resolutions?
Anyone who knows me is aware that I am probably one of the biggest Jay Z ( and Beyonce but mainly Jay) fans in the universe. My love for him goes beyond just being a fan. From the first time I heard "Reasonable Doubt" my senior year in high school up until today my love has just become stronger and stronger...LOL. Since today is his 42nd birthday I thought I would pay homage, by dedicating an entire post to Mr. Shawn Carter.
I bought this shirt when I went to to Brooklyn in October to see him perform at the Barclays Center. I paired it with a leather mini, tights, black blazer ,my Jeffery Campbell Nightwalkers and of course my go to Queen of the Jungle necklace that as you have probably noticed I wear with errrthang.
My love for him goes beyond the music, his genius level talent, business mind ,triumphs, personality, etc. I could go on and on and list about 1000 attributes as to why I think he is the greatest but I will spare you and myself from looking like a "Stan".....LOL

So we are in the last month of 2012. I promise it feels like November just flew by. Here is a summary of all the outfits of the day posts I did last month. Hands down my favorite look last month was the black and gold maxi dress I wore in the The 24 Karats post seen HERE. November was also Fancy Curves one year anniversary. Stay tuned because I will be announcing a giveaway this week to celebrate.
