A Weekend of Friends & Fashion

 Whew! It’s Monday and I’m exhausted! Seriously! These girls (Reah, Denise, Marie, and Dawn) wore me out! LOL…well regardless I had an amazing weekend.

It all started with my friend Dawn coming over. We spent ALL day Saturday shopping. But, I didn’t really buy anything because the selection for curvy girls…well…there really wasn’t a selection.

I hate to complain, but this was just plain sad. Me…in a mall…and I only bought one thing? You might have read my tweets, but in case you didn’t I was very disappointed in the Macy’s at the Glendale Galleria. The woman’s department was on the third floor, stuck in the corner, under really bad lighting, and the so-called “selection” was definitely lacking.

I was shocked to find a navy blue Alfani top I liked, but I didn’t take an outfit pic. Sorry! Of course there was a Torrid and Lane Bryant…so no complaints there. But, nothing really caught my eye. After our shopping excursion, we heading out for a couple of drinks and dancing in Hollywood. It was fun! On Sunday, I had an amazing brunch with the hubby and Dawn. Then it was off to Target in West Hollywood, to be disappointed AGAIN! They only had 3 racks of plus sizes! Come on! Geez! I think I’m going to start boycotting some retailers until they realize the changes they need to make. Who’s with me?

Anywhoo…Sunday night I headed out to the lovely Chenese Lewis’ birthday party here in L.A. I love that lady…unfortunately I didn’t get a pic with the sparkling birthday girl. I did get to catch up with the girls and we had an amazing time. Everyone looked stunning, of course!

This was the outfit I was going to wear, but I changed my mind at the last minute.

But, can I just say that I LOVE the way this dress fits! It’s from Size Appeal (gifted) and it is an amazing body hugging and curve enhancing dress! I couldn’t help it…the leopard print had me!

I love the whole 80’s vibe I feel when I wear it. I bought this necklace from Target, the leggings are from Bali (gifted), and my shoes are by Jessica Simpson. You might have seen Stylish Curves wearing it. Two different looks, one amazing Size Appeal dress.

The dress retailed for under $40 and there are a lot more like it here.

    you look amazing and this dress is great.
    but I had too many problems with size appeal. i'm waiting for an order since 2006 et never could have any talk with the customer service.

    You look so good in this dress. It looks super chic with the leggings and peep toe pumps. I think I may have to copy. :).

    Thanks for the shout out too!

    I agree with you about Target. I went to my local Target recently and all they had was old ugly swimsuits out. Oh and some fuzzy cardigans. I'm willing to spend money. Don't they want my money?
