Crystal Renn in Chanel Ad

I came across this Chanel ad, of the beautiful Crystal Renn, on the über fab Madison Plus blog. This ad, according to The Cut, is being used for a store reopening on Spring Street in New York. While many question whether Renn is still considered a plus-size model, The Cut is questioning why they decided to crop out her body. It’s a valid point, being that Jean Paul Gaultier ad’s included her entire body in his fall campaign.What do you think?Is this a big deal or are some making a big deal out of nothing?

Beauty Buzz: essie’s fall collection

Oh essie, I remember the first day we met. My best friend introduced me to you four years ago. Your delicious colors made it’s way onto my nails on the day of my wedding. My nails have never been the same. And now you come out with this rich fall collection and I love every single color? You’re too much. I guess I’ll have to wait until September 1st, to get my hands on you. Until then essie…

Want…Want…Want…

Why do these brands have to design and create such amazing pieces?It’s like they are made for me and only me. Yes, that’s how I think when it comes to stuff I want. I know I shouldn’t “want” something so bad, but look at it!I am drooling over the City Chic Urban Jungle Jean and Juicy Couture Cluster Cuff below. And you know I need that ‘Fashionista’ in a Frame necklace from ASOS. Gorgeous, right? Go ahead, you can lust after them too. It’s only right that you do.

I know you’re probably still melting from this summer heat, but I am already thinking about fall trends! I can’t help it. It’s definitely one of my favorite seasons. And you know I’m a shoe lover, so it’s only fitting that the first fall trend will be shoes! Shoes with buckles that is. I’ve already got my eye on a few pairs below.

Fruit of the Loom’s “Fit for Me” Collection

As I was flipping through one of my magazines, I came across the ad below from Fruit of the Loom’s “Fit for Me” collection. First of all, I am loving these curvaliscious models! Aren’t they beautiful? Secondly, YAY! for cotton undies made for curvy gals! I know I might sound a tad excited, but I love a simple and comfy cotton undie. I haven’t tried these, but I promise you I will. And when I do, I will write a full review for you! According to their web site they are available in sizes 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and…

Blogger Q&A: Em

EmAn Aussie in LondonOh, The Places You’ll Go! Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?When I look at clothes, I pay most of my attention to plus-size wear and as far as high-end designers are concerned, I like Elena Miro for the curvy-girl wear and also – the amazing Anna Scholz. Both designers clearly understand the nature of curves. My favourite places to shop are the Australian store, City Chic and Dutch store, Carmakoma.Non-curvy – just designer-wise, I love Wheels and Dollbaby for the flirtatious design and style. I also always like to see the catwalk collections for YSL,…

OOTD: Black and White Weekend

I never thought I had a “style” until I started blogging about my outfits. I figured out I have a very simple style. I don’t do outrageous or bold. I kinda wish I did, but that’s just not me. I commend those who do have the fashionable guts to go out on a limb when it comes to fashion. Bravo! But, for me…I guess I’m just a laid back California girl and there’s nothing wrong with that. This past weekend is the perfect example of that. Very black and white. Just the way I like it.Outfit #1 – Cascading Vest:…
