Designer Details: Fendi Spring 2011

I know I call myself a bargainista, but there’s nothing wrong with looking at beautiful designer pieces. In fact, they give me so much inspiration for the upcoming seasons. I have always been a fan of Fendi. This Italian super design house has never really disappointed me. Their Spring 2011 line was a stunner at Milan, and of course I am eyeing all of their hot accessories. All that red is killing me!! images: style.com

$25 & Under: Standout Jewelry

In the world of shopping, I don’t think there is anything worse than falling in love with something and then finding out that it costs way more than what you can afford! Isn’t that the worse feeling? That’s why I love to research online and find items that not only standout, but are within my budget. Jewelry is one of those items I love to find for bargain prices. I hate to spend more than $25 for a piece of costume jewelry. Here are a few pieces I wouldn’t mind owning and are $25 & Under. Where do you like…

Jewel Tones & ASOS Curve

As I lay here in bed sick with a summer cold/fever/sinus thingee…I do what I do best. And that’s e-shopping for things I can’t buy right now. I am currently on the ASOS Curve page and I’m drooling and loving all of these jewel toned dresses. I can’t help but think how beautiful these dresses are and how they will make my fall and winter that much better. Are you craving jewel toned dresses this fall? More Asos…

Target Petition: We Want Designer Fashion Too!

As a self-professed bargainista, I am proud to say I LOVE TARGET! I’m there every week. And every week I am jealous of their designer collaborations. Why? Because, as a curvy gal, I don’t get to wear them. My local Target has a small, but decent plus size section, but nothing compared to the straight size department. I have come to accept the fact that us “curvy” girls will never get to experience their designer collaborations. Wait! There might be a glimmer of hope. I received this email below from Marie The Curvy Fashionista: A few days ago, Patrice from…

Wish List: Ponchos & Capes

The first day of fall has come and is now gone, yet it was 80 degrees in L.A. today! What the? I want cold weather already! I’m dreaming of ponchos and capes. They not only make me feel all warm inside, but they look really comfy too! You know me and comfy!What do you think? Are you a poncho or cape kind of girl?

Day 2 & 3: Viva Fat Vegas

Days 2 & 3 of Viva Fat Vegas were a lot of fun! Yes, there are more photos. And I know you’ve seen them on the other girls blogs, but now it’s my turn! Lol.After our afternoon at Voluptuous we spent an evening with Sealed with a Kiss (SWAK) Designs. We were lucky enough to try on pieces from their fall line. We even had our own private fashion show. The pieces were beyond amazing. They were not only comfy but the cuts were flattering and accentuated our curves! There are tons of pictures below. SWAK gifted us a dress…

Marshalls “Behind the Seams” Help Me and Win!!

Listen up bargainistas! Style expert Alison Deyette, was on hand today at Marshalls for the “Behind the Seams” event. It was a chance for bloggers to learn why off-price retailers are the best way to shop for our fall must haves.We all know that Marshalls and T.J. Maxx have designer items up to 60% off, but do you know how they are able to offer us those amazing prices?According to Marshalls, their buyers negotiate better prices with vendors because department stores plan their inventories much lower, they overbuy and then cancel orders, or designers overproduce. All of these factors allow…
