Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration.
I just returned a few hours ago from my second road trip to Arizona, two weekends in a row. My uncle is very ill and we went to visit him. I am pretty pooped but the 7 hour drive is worth it. I love that guy!! That’s why there haven’t been any posts since last week. Just thought I’d let you guys know.
On a brighter note, my birthday is coming up this weekend and I would love to go out. In case I do, I am on the search for a party dress. Something in black and fun…but not too revealing. What do you think about these two? The first one is from Forever 21 and the second is from Torrid. It has to be something I can buy this week. Decisions…decisions.
**Update: I was just informed by my bestfriend that I am not supposed to be shopping. So…no new dress. My bday plans have been canceled anyways. But, thank you for all the comments. Lol.
Today I realized…I have boring underwear. Ok, I realized this while I was looking through Torrid’s fun, colorful, and sexy intimates selection. I’ve never really thought of it and this may be a tad personal. Torrid, thank you for selling cute undies and making me realize mine are boring. Plus, they are all under $8 each and some are even on clearance. Oh…if you’re going to buy some online…there’s a coupon code at the bottom of this post. You’re welcome.

Sex and the City has been a love of mine since I can remember. Yes, I watch the late night reruns and yes, I’ve even imagined which one of the ladies I’m most like. Who hasn’t? I really liked the movie, but it wasn’t the best. So, I wasn’t too excited about Sex and the City 2…that was until I found out Aidan is in it!! He was my favorite boyfriend of all!! John Corbett is to cute!! I can’t wait to see it! Here’s the trailer:
Hungry for Fashion
Southern California, USA
Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
I’ve always been in awe of the fabulous Coco Chanel. She was the first to say FUCK what men what women to wear! She went for designs that were comfortable and classic. She was against the norm and stood up for real women out there. It’s incredible that her designs can be worn to this day. I believe plus, real, curvy (what ever you want to call us) women are at the point in time were we are standing up and saying screw what the industry thinks we should be wearing…we’ll wear what we want!
What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
Aghhh…don’t throw stones but I cannot live without my black leggings! I love that I can pair them with anything in my closet and feel comfortable and chic.
If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
I would create a lipstick. I can see it being a bright shade of red with a hint of pink. I would call it “Beware: Curves Ahead!”
If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
I would pack my fave leggings, over-sized tee, leather jacket, black pumps, mixed jewelry and head out to punk/rockabilly bar in L.A to dance the night away.
Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?
It’s not really a fashion quote but it can be applied to being yourself. “The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”
When spring and summer hit, I can’t wait to pull out my wedge sandals. They go great with practically anything. I would take all of these above! Stupid budgeting. Read more
This summer trend will not only have you looking chic, but it will keep you comfy! I love that combo, don’t you? With its floor touching length, the maxi dress was made for me…and you. It’s so versatile too. You can dress it down with a pair of flip flops or dress it up a bit with a cute wedge or heel. If you wear it into the evening you can throw on your favorite cardigan or Pashmina wrap. Oh…if you were wondering I’m loving #9!
My golden rule: If the dress has a vibrant print, make sure to keep your jewelry simple.

Ok…it’s time to start looking for a swimsuit. Here are my requirements:

- Reasonably priced
- Great quality
- Sturdy chest support (lol)
That’s not too much to ask for, right? I picked a few below, but some of them are pricey. I’ll keep looking.
I spent this past Easter weekend in Arizona with my family and let me tell you it was an exhausting one! It was a last minute trip, but it was nice to get out of town for a minute. I got back late last night and I am sooooooo happy to be back home. L.A. has my heart for sure!
I wore this outfit for Easter Sunday (with a black cardigan for church). Later, I switched out the heels for white gladiator sandals. It was a pretty comfy outfit, especially the pants. I love the buttons. I was battling with my hair…and I lost. Yuck. My mom was the photographer this time…she’s pretty good…a little blurry…but good.
Being on a budget is not working for me! Look at what I found at Maurices! Darn e-window shopping! I’m definitely in the mood for coral and denim. Especially, the cutoff shorts. Which I can probably do at home…hmmm…lightbulb! This budgeting is inspiring DIY projects. I guess that’s a good thing. Right?
Thank you to everyone who entered.
A gigantic L.A. hug to all of those who visit and comment my blog. It means the world to me.
