My 2014 Style Rewind

danielle gray the style and beauty doctor 2014 style rewind

2014 was a pretty interesting year for my style. I went from tomboy-ish and oversized to form-fitting and feminine-ish…lol. I also lost some weight (see how I did it here) and while I probably should have been following my own advice about how to dress when losing or gaining weight, I did not and was kinda buying clothes all the time…lol. Like I’d go down a size and buy something new immediately knowing full well that I wasn’t near goal weight yet. Ugh, but it was so fun and the clothes kept calling me…lol.




I’m obsessed—with a lot of things, of course—but also with buying faux fur accessories. I have more than a few faux fur stoles, faux fur wraps, and even faux fur fingerless gloves. I keep buying them because I always say I’m going to come across an occasion where I want to jazz up one of my jackets or coats and the piece will be the piece I need. Meanwhile I have so many of these pieces. SMH.


My Style: Camo Pants & Red Lips

Over the last four years I’ve worked from home—this meant that I went from wearing suits just about everyday to barely getting out of my pajamas before 3 PM. I’d get dressed of course on days when I had press appointments or other events, but I’d be in such a time crunch, I didn’t really have time to document what I wore unless I came across a good selfie mirror…lol. But I’m now trying this thing where I actually get dressed 2-3 times a week and work from my friend Nas of Nasilele Photography‘s studio in Brooklyn and this is the first of I’m hoping many more outfit posts to come (fingers crossed because a girl gets sleepy around 2 PM and needs her naps…lol). I’m also using this as a way to get more usage and inspiration from some of the stuff I have in my closet—it’s kinda like a long drawn out outfit directory similar to the one Cher had in Clueless.

An army of me is ready for Rihanna's concert!

An army of me is ready for Rihanna’s concert!

So as I mentioned yesterday, I’m hitting the Rihanna concert at Barclays this Saturday with Motions Hair Care! The brand has just launched a new line for those with natural hair who want the flexibility of straight styles periodically without sacrificing their curls – Straight Finish Heat Styled System. I’m giving the line a whirl and trying out a new ‘do for the concert which I also detailed yesterday (3 easy steps to take me to straight, sexy hair – I’m sold!), but now I have to figure out what to wear! And of course makeup and nails, too.


13 Places to Shop (Online and In-Store) for FAB Plus Size Fashion


The Style and Beauty Doctor reader Haley wrote in asking, “Hey Danielle! I’m a size 18 and looking to revamp my wardrobe. I want to be more fashionable but need some ideas on where to shop. Can you help out?

Hey Haley!

Of course I can help out!

So first things first, it is super important that we all understand that plus size is a size category, not a shape. You can be plus size and have an hourglass shape, a boyish figure, pear-shaped, etc. There will be no “all plus girls should…” statements because every body is different. In fact, I also stress that EVERYONE go through my Dressing for Your Body posts to learn what’s best for your body TYPE no matter it’s SIZE (#shamelessplug).


Bonjour, Montreal! #bonjourmtl


So I’m hereeee! Trying this posting on the go bit. Doing the pics and everything from my iPhone. My flight out of LGA was canceled so I drove to Newark at the weeeeee hours of the morning with my buds Milly of Beauty Logic Blog and Lara of Pretty Connected. I packed like an hour before we had to leave so I broke out these leopard wedges I got courtesy of Sole Society over the summer. I wasn’t sure about them at first but they’re the easiest little wedges and are perfect for travel because they slip on and off quickly.
