Faith 21 Sparkles!

Need an idea on how to make that all-black outfit pop? Add a little sparkle! Yes, can be more of an evening look, if you follow rules. But, you know we don’t! And besides, I think it’s a fun way to make your outfit stand out. All of these pieces are from Forever 21’s Faith 21 line. I’m already imagining these skirts with a pair of black opaque tights. I told you I have shopping on the brain! All I know is there’s nothing like a little sparkle to brighten up your day!

Style & Designer: Calvin Klein

Plus Tops by Calvin Klein JeansPumps by Calvin KleinKnown for chic and sleek styles, American Sportswear designer Calvin Klein never disappoints. In fact, my first pair of designer plus size jeans were by Calvin Klein and believe me when I say I wore them out! I loved them and of course they were on sale. What’s your experience with Calvin Klein pieces been like?

Elena Miro Spring 2011 – Too Real for Milan?

images found here It was a runway of curves at Elena Miro’s Spring 2011 show. In stunning shades of gray, her models strutted their stuff during Milan’s Fashion Week. Yet, not a part of Milan’s Fashion Week. Kind of like One Stop Plus showed in New York during New York Fashion Week, but wasn’t a part of New York Fashion Week. Actually, just like that. In fact, according to many news sources, Miro was knocked off of Milan”s Fashion Week calender.Why is the “fashion world” so afraid of women with real curves and real bodies?

Say it Loud and Proud!

I saw this shirt at Torrid and I couldn’t help but love it! Of course you should love your boobies! You should love them so much you’d do anything to keep them! That means becoming knowledgeable when it comes to breast cancer awareness and loving your body. Yes, I do care. My aunt died from breast cancer and the odds are you probably know someone affected by it. Go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure web site now and learn more.

Designer Binge with Bluefly

I think I’m going on a designer binge after checking out Milan Fashion Week. It’s all I can think about and sometimes that’s not such a good thing for a girl like me on a budget. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to look and save money for a much needed pair of designer sunglasses. I’m just sayin’! I’m still looking for the perfect pair.Hmmm…maybe these Prada and Gucci sunglasses from Bluefly will make it into my “shopping cart.” PradaGucci While I’m at it, let’s take a look at a Fendi bag. There’s nothing like a classic Fendi shoulder bag. Sometimes, this…

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?
