      Growing up, I have always loved traveling with my mom. My mother was born in the Dominican Republic so as a child, I traveled at least once a year to DR. Last week, I went to the DR with my boyfriend which was going to be the first time going without my mother. I was a little nervous about my trip because…

Stripes

You’re going to kill me for this one but how adorable is this jumpsuit from Fashion to Figure? Yes adorable but unfortunately, it is sold out! I know such a bummer but I went ahead and linked below a few jumpsuits that I think are super cute and somewhat similar to one I am wearing. I think stripes are great for the spring/fall. I have…

Fashion Nova Jeans

May 9th, 2017 denisemercedes

Fashion Nova launched their plus size line not too long ago and I am beyond excited. My only thing with Fashion Nova is that they sell out really quickly so you need to be quick when you see something that you like. I joined a campaign with Fashion Nova called “Bodied by Nova” which is a campaign that is celebrating women of all sizes and…

Designed My Own Lingerie Piece, Literally!

May 4th, 2017 denisemercedes

As a plus size woman, I know how hard it is to find cute lingerie pieces. I remember growing up and always had to buy old lady bras because I had big breast since I was 13 years old. I had the pleasure of collaborating with this awesome brand called Impish Lee where you can design your own lingerie. I mean literally design the entire…

Apr 25th, 2017 denisemercedes

I have never shopped at Dressbarn before but after receiving this beautiful dress from Ashley Graham’s new collection with them, I must say that I am in love. Her entire collection with them is beautiful! Dressbarn sent me this dress as a gift and at first they sent me a size 12 which ended up fitting me a little tight. I usually wear a size…

Hey beautiful ladies! I would love to share with you some of my photos with my collaboration with Slink Jeans ! Their products are amazing and their jeans fit me like a glove!

  So a few days ago, I went to Los Angles for the first time ever! I went to LA because I had a modeling job for Forever21. Yes, Forever21. I honestly feel blessed for getting an opportunity like that. I was super nervous to get on a plane and go to California but my wonderful boyfriend came with me. I fell in love with…

Forever21

So today, I shot in this lovely black jumpsuit from Forever21! I am literally obsessing over this jumpsuit. Lately, I have been loving wide leg pants. Here’s a little secret. If you wear wide leg pants or jumpsuits that has wide legs, you will look much taller. Sadly, since I am short (not that short) I always make sure that I choose outfits that will…

Another Day in the City!

If you know me, you know I love slits, whether it’s on a skirt or dress! I love to show off my legs so, if you’re like me and like to show off your legs as well, I’d say this skirt is a perfect match. It goes well with literally any top. Of course, because I’m Denise Mercedes, I went ahead and chose a crop…
