Bank Breaker V$. Bargain: Leopard Print Tote

As you can tell, my brain never stops thinking about fashion! I’ve been craving a leopard print tote…bad! You’d really be surprised at the amount of super ridiculously expensive leopard print designer bags there are out there. As I was researching, I found some in the thousands! This M Z Wallace ‘Grace’ Tote is $425 at Nordstrom; not too bad compared to some of the others, but it’s still a “Bank Breaker” for me!Now, take a look at the ‘SCHMUTZLER’ handbag from Aldo, which is on sale for $27.98! That’s a lot better for my budget! I think I’m ordering…

OOTD: Gray in L.A.

It was nothing but gray skies today in L.A., just the way I like it! Yes, I’m a cold weather lover living in the City of Angels. I had a business meeting today, so I decided to try out my new Torrid Jayden Faux-Leather boots, dark denim jeans, and my Sejour Faux Suede Jacket by Nordstrom. The beautiful Nik of xoxo NikStar took my pics for me. She’s a doll! I was a little frustrated by the cowl neck on this top! I bought it at Macy’s a long time ago and don’t get me started on my hair. LOL.…

Out and About…

Time does fly when you’re having fun! After returning from Blogalicious in Miami, I only had a day-and-a-half to get ready for my next trip. This time it was a 4 day mini-vacay to see my best friend (in the green dress) who lives in Maine. The last time I saw her was in May and I was definitely missing her. It was so strange unpacking my summer clothes from the Miami trip, then packing the fall clothes for the New England weather. Even though it was a bit chilly and it rained all day on Friday, I couldn’t help…

Brown “Bootin’ it” with Steve Madden

With all of my recent running around, I haven’t any time to really go shopping! I know! I’ve been super good when it comes to spending money I don’t have. It’s a serious problem…I know. I was even inches away from amazing deals at this Coach Outlet in Freeport, Maine over the weekend and I didn’t spend a dime! It was horrible! Well, now it’s time to drool over shoes…well…brown Steve Madden boots to be exact. I need a pair so bad. The brown boots I have weren’t made for my curvy calves! My mom bought them for me two…

Review: INES Collection

Luxuriously soft, comfy, chic, and only $39? The “Gotta Meet Sam” top by the INES Collection, will definitely leave you wanting to wear more from their line. Created by designer Jacqueline Floro, the INES Collection is a result of her friends and family desire, over a size 10, to design clothes for them. You can find the collection for sale on ShopTranslated.com.I’m not going to lie, prior to being contacted by them, I had never heard of this plus size clothing line. Now, I’m thinking…how did I NOT know about them? This top, made of 100% poly woven, is extremely soft…

Blogalicious 2010: What I Wore

Blogalicious Weekend in Miami was beyond anything I imagined. The women were smart, creative, and fabulous! I met so many great ladies, even from the moment I stepped of off the plane! We had such a busy weekend of sessions, that I didn’t have time to take proper outfit posts. It was a wake up early and go to bed late kind of weekend. Here are a few pics from that weekend with a description of what I wore. Oh and by the way, as you can see in most of the photos, I was having MAJOR bang issues! Ughhh!…
