City Chic’s Denim Inspiration

I think I have to get my hands on a denim vest! I found these pics on City Chic’s Inside City Chic blog. These are only two of the lovely looks from their new “lady like lookbook.” I love the ruggedness of the denim and the delicate touch the flowers give the outfit. A great combination!

Blogger Q&A: Jill

JillScranton, PAJilly beansTalkWho is your favorite fashion designer and why?My favorite fashion designer is Phillip Lim. I’ll be honest in that I don’t really follow designers all that much (mostly because I don’t have the budget to buy their clothes), but I do flip through various fashion magazines each month, and every time I like a piece and I look in the sidebar to see who it’s made by, it’s Phillip Lim. I think he just has a great mixture of amazing cuts, classic styles, sleekness and a little big of edge.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live…


I was flipping through the pages of this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar and I came across the “Rules of Summer.” You know…the things you should be wearing this summer, according to HB. They listed “12 Easy Updates,” which include leather shorts and a white blazer.I am so down for the white blazer, I think it would look great with almost anything. Very versatile. Shorts and a tank, a pair of jeans, or a summer dress would all look very chic. And it’s probably really easy to find one at a thrift or vintage store (sorry the brain is always…

Summer Trends: The White Dress

Keep yourself cool this summer with a chic white dress. The thing I love the most about this trend is you can definitely mix it up! It’s as easy as adding a colorful accessory, a short sleeved cardigan, flip flops, or whatever you want! Or simply just wear it by itself. It’s a no-brainer. Don’t you just love easy fashion?My golden rule: Don’t mix up different shades of white, keep it simple.

Lingerie Update: Cosabella

Remember that lingerie survey, you curvy ladies so graciously filled out for me a couple of months ago? (Thanks btw) It was for the lingerie line Cosabella. I was extremely honored that they would ask for my help in their desire to create plus-size lingerie.Cosabella even sent me a black lace thong to review. I am definitely a comfy cotton undie girl, but this thong is now my favorite undergarment! Not only was it SEXY, but it was very comfortable. It seemed to fit in all the right places. And since their line is designed here in the U.S., but…

Shoe Fever: Dolce Vita

Dear Dolce Vita,

I love your shoes. Although, I’ve never owned a pair, I fall in love every time I see a pair and try them on. I just want you to know that if I ever come across a couple of hundred dollars, I will buy these three pairs above. They would probably make my feet melt, because they are so HOT!

Thank you.

Blogger Q&A: Allison

AllisonCurvy Girl ChicL.A./BostonWho is your favorite fashion designer and why?It may be incredibly mainstream, but I absolutely love the house of Chanel. Everything from that design house is feminine but powerful, chic but timeless, and always impossibly stylish. Even though Karl Lagerfeld spoke unpleasantly about plus size women, it cannot be denied that his work is brilliant and that he possesses an amazing eye for designs that will remain stylish for centuries. It also doesn’t hurt that everything that comes out of his mouth is effing hilarious! Love his sharp little witticisms.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live…

Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash

It was all about shopping, gift bags, complimentary spa services, and cocktails at the Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash! Held at the Peterson Automotive Museum here in Los Angeles, I had a chance to finally meet Cid from Cid’s Style File. FYI…she’s awesome!I not only got a few freebies from sponsors like Chevy, Pixi, and Burke Williams, but I also picked up a Chillers T-Shirt for $10 and makeup from Pixi for only $5. I even got a free bra fitting from Frederick’s of Hollywood and a Buy One Get One Free coupon for one of their sexy bras.With discounts…

Bali Comfort-U Back Review

Finding the perfect bra is probably one of our biggest headaches. Especially, if you’re a curvy woman with a larger chest.So, when I was contacted to try Bali’s Comfort-U Back bra I was pretty excited. This new line features the beautiful Helena Christensen and boasts about the straps and the back of the bra staying in place. You know I had to try it out.They sent me the Flower Bali Underwire bra. I actually wore this bra on my birthday and I was quite surprised at how comfortable it was. The straps never fell down and the back of the…
