Tomorrow is New Years Eve and I am going on a mini-vacation. So, I will be M.I.A. For a few days. I am sorry to report I don’t have a best of 2010 anything, but that doesn’t mean I don’t care. I think 2010 was very awesome! And I am definitely looking forward to what 2011 has to offer. I want to thank all of you for reading Curves and Chaos and always leaving me feedback. I hope to bring you a few changes to the blog in the new year and more giveaways!
I hope you have a fashionable and safe New Years Eve!

We’re all looking for that one product that will make our hair not only stronger, but will also give it that brilliant shine. And if there’s one thing we all deal with, it’s the havoc that our daily styling routines do to our hair. Whether it’s blow drying, curling, or flat ironing; we do a lot of heat related damage to our luscious locks.
I have always been a Pantene user, it always provided great results at a reasonable price. One day, I was sitting in a chair at the P&G Home at the BlogHer 2010 conference, getting a mini-makeover and I asked the stylist what she would recommend for smoothing my hair. She recommended a product from the

With only three days left until New Year’s Eve, I’ve been on the hunt for something to wear. I’ve purchased and returned like a mad woman. I’ve had a dress for a while that I was going to wear, but I tried it on the other night and it just didn’t look right. So, I headed out Sunday looking for an outfit. Isn’t that the story of my shopping life? I’m a last minute shopper.
Is being a last minute shopper smart? Yes and no.
Yes, because you’re forced to find something. No, because your choices are limited and you’re forced to find something. Now, try last minute shopping at malls that aren’t very curve-friendly and already ransacked. Over the last few days I’ve been looking over barely there racks. And when I did see something I like, they didn’t have it in my size. Ohhhhh…the drama.
But, low-and-behold I walk into Forever 21 today. It was the last store, before I gave up for the day. I’ve always been a fan of them, I just don’t know why I waited so long to look there! Of course, I fall for the first dress I see; the One Shoulder Glam Dress (below).
It sparkles more in person, I can’t wait to wear it! Now, I just have to find accessories for it. The shopping is never done!! I am thinking about wearing black opaque tights and black booties. Or should I go with black sequin pumps?
Before I head out shopping, I need a little inspiration. That means…shoooooooes! Yay! I am on the hunt for a pair of black shoes for New Year’s Eve. Aren’t the first pair, Steve Madden’s btw, divine? Love them! Is there anything you like here?
Happy Holidays!! I hope you all had a fantabulous Christmas! I had an amazing time with my family.
Christmas Eve was spent with the in-laws. This is the outfit I wore (left). I wore this
And you know I had to get to the after Christmas sales. I grabbed a few things from Macy’s and H&M, but I think they are going back. Don’t you just hate when that happens. That’s what I get for not trying things on. The shopping center I went to wasn’t very curve-friendly either. Blah!
Today, I’m going to head out and look for a few new pieces for my New Year’s Eve outfit. Last night I tried on my planned outfit and it did not look cute! Time for Plan B! I’ll keep you updated.
Maybe we should call it Video Thursday around here! Here’s one from Torrid featuring my girl Denise Bidot. She’s super sweet and beautiful! Love this girl. You should definitely check her out. It’s a behind the scenes look at their spring collection. Which look is your fave?
I am also throwing Torrid’s video featuring the 2010 House of Dreams winners.
Hey last minute shoppers…I tried my best to stay away from giving you gift ideas. But, this Christmas lover couldn’t help herself. I found a few items for that special person on your list all under $40! Yes, a true bargainista always finds her deals, even during the holidays. Hmmm…maybe this is my wish list. What do you think? Which item would you take home?
You know as well as I do, that finding the perfect bra is torture! It can not only be annoying, but it can be expensive and time consuming. I have been on the hunt for a wireless bra, that was not only affordable, but that actually “held up” its end of the bargain…if you know what I mean. And by that I mean, the bra has to offer great support. Duh!
I’ve had enough with wearing under-wire bras all day with the uncomfortable wire poking me! I don’t mind a couple of hours, but all day…not anymore.
Since, I am already a fan of
Yes, this is my first wire-free bra I’ve worn since my training bra days and I was really worried about the support. But, now I know I have nothing to worry about. This is a very supportive and comfortable full coverage bra. I will admit that the first time I wore it there was a little irritation from the adjusters (?) on the back of the bra straps, but that went away after the first wear.
The slightly padded cups give the breast a natural shape that nature intended. The bra straps don’t dig into shoulders because of the wide padded straps and there is plenty of coverage in the back. I think this would make a great t-shirt bra, since it’s pretty invisible under your clothing.
I have made this my all day bra and I don’t regret it one bit. I will admit, if you’re looking for an “uplifting” bra, then this isn’t it. Because there is no under wire, you don’t get the same effect. But, this isn’t your 1950′s soft cup bra either.
