Curves and Chaos 2010 Survey Results: Part 1

In August I created the First Annual “Curves and Chaos 2010 Survey.” There were 201 responses to this survey. My goal was to get a sense of what other curvy women thought about shopping, brands, and other things that pertain to us in regards to fashion. I will post this in a three part series.

Sequins Sparkle!

Like I need another reason to sparkle…hee hee…sequins always seem to stand out during the fall and winter seasons. I love wearing them during the holidays and as you saw in the Evans video below Toccara loves them too! Don’t worry if you think they’re too dressy, most of the pieces below are paired with jeans. It’s a great way to add a little “ooh la la” to an outfit. I love the cardigan below. Which one is your favorite?

5 Questions: Amanda Tice

Here’s a new feature simply titled “5 Questions:” Meet Amanda Tice! I had the honor of meeting the beautiful and extremely nice Amanda in Miami. She was one of the models showcased in a Bali exhibit for their new shapewear. I went over and spoke with the curvy women…of course, and found them to be so down to earth! I knew I had to introduce you to her!

What I wore: “Discovering Màs”

On Saturday, I threw my first event for the Los Angeles Latina Bloggers. “Discovering Mas” was my attempt to bring together Latina bloggers to network and learn. It turned out to be an amazing day, with so many beautiful Latina women in one place! Thank you to everyone who came! This is the outfit I wore (left). Alfani top w/belt, Old Navy Jeans, and Sam Edelman flats. The day before the event I was running errands and decided to stop by Macy’s really quick to see if I could find something to wear. To my surprise, the woman’s section had…

Sassy City Chicks ‘Fashion Bash’ with My Girls!

Today, Cid from Cid’s Style File and I celebrated our friendship anniversary! Yes, I met Cid at the last Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash at the Peterson Automotive Museum here in L.A.! Memories…LOL. I met up with Cid, Nik from xoxo NikStar, Marie the Curvy Fashionista, the stylist extraordanaire Reah Norman, and beautylicious model Denise Bidot. We were in prime shopping mode!I love these shopping events, but there is something missing…plus size fashion! It’s so sad, because we were ready to spend money! It seems like all we can get at these events are jewelry, shoes, and accessories. Not complaining…

Win a Charles & Victoria Design!

We all know that curves come in ALL shapes and of course sizes. I was recently contacted by Rachel the designer and creator of Charles & Victoria. Although this line isn’t a plus size line, she did make her pieces up to a size 14. And as the sizes got bigger, she created more curve where it was needed. Her goal was to design pieces that would fit a curvy body better. I like the way that sounds! Rachel would love to give away a navy Ruffle Tank Dress in a size XL, which is a US 12/14 or UK 16/18…

Old Navy & the Wool Coat

Although it’s currently 87 degrees here in Los Angeles, I am still in search of a winter coat. I’m still waiting for Mother Nature to tell the City of Angels to turn this heat down. I yearn for the cold weather…yes…I used the word “yearn.” Well, I do!Old Navy has these amazing Wool-blend coats, all on sale by the way. They range in price from $29-$79.50 and in sizes up to XXL or 4X. I think I love the first one, it’s the Women’s Double Breasted coat in brown or black. I’d take both.Which one is your fave?
