Win $1000? Yes, please! In honor of their upcoming fashion show on September 15th, during New York’s Fashion week,
Jason Wu and Ports 1961 stole my heart on day 2 of New York’s Fashion Week. I am in love with these Spring 2011 collections. I didn’t want to bombard you with photos, so I only choose a few. The day was filled with feminine touches, flowing fabric, and abstract prints and cuts. Not bad day 2, let’s see what day 3 brings. Oh, btw…I can totally see most of these pieces on this curvy silhouette!
Are you a shoe lover who’s not loving the heel height of your favorite pair of shoes? (Raises Hand) If so, you’re definitely going to love this latest shoe trend, the classic kitten heel. It’s time to bring it down a notch.
The kitten heel was introduced in the 1950′s with a heel height of no more than 2 inches. Some, brands like these Anne Taylor pumps below are 2 1/2 inches high. I remember when I wouldn’t wear anything higher than 2 inches! I’ve dared to go to 3 inches, my feet miss the kitten heels. Looks like it’s time to go shoe shopping!
Day 1 of New York Fashion week has come and gone. I saw a lot of mixing of prints, clean lines, military inspired looks, romantic pieces and bare midriffs? Really? Bare midriffs? Oh well. Here are a “few” of the Spring 2011 pieces I liked. I’m not a professionally paid fashion critic but, I really had to look hard for these! Hopefully, day 2 will be more inspiring.
Look at the lovely curvy ladies who made the cut and won the 2010 Torrid House of Dream model search. They were voted on by you! Aren’t they beautiful! Congrats! They’ve all won a trip to L.A. and they get to strut their stuff on the catwalk at an exclusive Torrid VIP fashion event.

The overcast weather here in L.A. really has me thinking about fall more than ever. So, I couldn’t help but post this trend. The chunky knit is not only a trend for fall/winter of 2010 but, it is always a trend every year. Who doesn’t like to look fabulous while keeping warm? For me it’s a given! I love cable knit sweaters!! I actually have two in my closet from last season, I can’t wait to wear. I am also on the hunt for a chunky knit beret. Will fall just hurry up and get here already!

You’ve heard it a million times…yes, fall is right around the corner. But, what a better time than now to get those sweaters and cardigans under $10! I think this is one of my favorite bargainista finds for the upcoming season. Hurry up, before they sell out! (P.S. if you click on an item and it doesn’t come up, that means it’s sold out)
Of course I wore my favorite Lane Bryant Knit Denim Jeggings ($59.50) and my super awesome Mossimo wedges from Target that were a mega discount. I think the jeggings toned down the top, which could come off really dressy. I added my Forever 21 jewelry which included my favorite chunky chain necklace and a pair of stud earrings. Loved this outfit!
Like Rachel Zoe would say…”I die!”
Seriously, I’m in shoe heaven. I am speechless. All I know is that I WANT these Christian Louboutin brown suede platform pumps. The End.
When you first touch this dress, you can’t help but love the material; it is very soft. The navy and heather gray go so well together. These are two separate pieces, but they are attached at the shoulder area. And there is a black faux belt attached at the waist. I was worried it would ride up on me or the dress would fly open in the front, but it did neither of those things.
I was also amazed at how comfy and cool I was in this dress. We had a warm day today, and I wasn’t bothered at all. I think it could be really easy to dress this down with a pair of cute sandals as well. I think the thing I liked about this dress the most was the compliment I got while I was out and about. Thanks sales associate at Staples! Btw…the shoes are by Madden Girl.
