Yes folks for this month’s Pinay Curvies Swag challenge we’re going down to the signature pop-culture trend – Denim Jeans! Show us your best style in it whether it is the bluest, sexiest, craziest and the baddest of all denims. Check the how-to link here

Because we take pride of being Filipinos so much, we’ve decided to put the next PCS challenge to a higher level. This August, as the whole nation is celebrating “Buwan ng Pambansang Wika“, we are also taking part in this nationalistic celebration by encouraging you, our dearest readers to show us your very own style icon.

The rule is just simple, your style icon must be a proud Filipino citizen. So whether she/he is a musician, fashion designer, celebrity, model, politician, beauty queen, socialite, a friend, a family member or any Filipino from all walks of life; we want you to stand proud by showing us his/her signature style and tell us in what way it influences your own take in fashion.

Just be back here on August 21st for the actual link-up, so you have at least a week to keep us more and more amazed and super thrilled with your entries. Now, who do you want to be for the next Pinay Curvies Swag challenge ei?


PCS July Challenge : Boots Up

PCS July Challenge : Boots Up

In knee-high or ankle level,  5 inch heels or flat soles, to easily pace along watery sidewalks or just flaunt out a sweet killer shoe statement, you can’t deny the fact that this pair of work horse is seriously made for walking. It is a perfect companion this season too.

Again it’s the time of the month to get extra excited (we are! we are!)  and this July of Pinay Curvies Swag with the influence of the on and off rainy weather, we’ve decided to make the linkup all about your lovely pair of booties! Ladies, might be a good time to revive that good old pair, eh?

It is one of the hottest colors of 2013 and for the very first link-up challenge, we’re taking it down to basics. It’s a uniform color to shy away from our usual dark and Printy ensembles, the crispiness may seem to be the new epitome of elegance. But we know it too well that whites can be a dreaded clothing foe particularly to those who are on the heavy side. But thanks to the new breeds of plus size fashion, they’ve been keen on reinventing more and more absolutely gorgeous loving designs suitable for curvy ladies. They may not be available here in The Philippines but hey you can always take queue on how to wear this trend. Here are some inspirations
