Holiday Bling & Sparkle

I swear these holidays are going to make me broke! All I want is a little sparkle this holiday season. Is that too much to ask? Maybe a little bling to brighten things up? You know I’m a lover of Juicy Couture and Betsey Johnson rings, but look what else I found, Kenneth Cole rings all under $40! I don’t which set of rings I want more! Which ones are your favorite? Can you see yourself wearing any of these with your holiday looks? Rings by Betsey JohnsonRings by Juicy CoutureRings by Betsey JohnsonRings by Kenneth Cole

The Shopping Diaries: Discrimination?

I am a true lover of shopping. Not just spending money, although that’s fun too. But, I am completely happy “just looking” in a mall filled to the brim with fashion, beauty products, shoes, and accessories. Even without buying a thing. I’m not talking about window shopping. I need to actually feel the merchandise and check out its quality. And not just plus size stores either; I make my way into any retail space. Until a few weeks ago.I was at a Los Angeles area shopping mall and was stopped dead in my tracks before I even stepped foot into this…

Snowball…A Night with the Ladies.

I adore the holidays! The Christmas season has to be my favorite time of the year! I love spending time with friends and family and that’s exactly what I did last night. I attended the First Annual Snowball thrown by Two Point OH! LA. What an amazing group for fashion, beauty, and style bloggers in Los Angeles! I totally recommend joining if you live here. The event benefited the Downtown’s Women Center and there were so many awesome sponsors. It was held at the Pacific Electric Lofts penthouse ballroom, which was stunning by the way. I walked away with two…

Unique Evening Bags?

After Saturday night’s Snowball event, I realized I don’t have a proper evening bag. With the holidays here, I need something that will be easy to carry, big enough for my cell phone, I.D., money, my compact, and my lip stick. I also want something that is unique. That brings us to this post. I love “unique” items, although I never have the guts to pull anything like it off. As I was searching today, I found a few “unique” evening bags that I’d love to share with you. Honest opinions please…would you carry any of these to your next…

Shoe Fever: Holiday Inspired

Clearly I am having some type of shoe obsession! I don’t know what it is, but I need shoes! Raise your hand if you’re with me? And doesn’t there always seems to be an occasion that requires the purchase of new shoes. Maybe it’s the Two Point OH LA Snowball on Saturday that has me wanting a holiday inspired shoe like the ones below. A fatshionista is never satisfied, especially around the holidays.

Beauty Review: Wet N Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow

Yet, another beauty confession…I’m not anything close to a make up artist or beauty fanatic. But, I am a chick who does like make up, but doesn’t like to pay the hefty price for department store brands. I’ve purchased them before, but realized how expensive that can get. I’ve been an over-the-counter girl ever since. Lately, I’ve tried steppiing out of my comfort zone when it comes to colors. That’s why I was really excited when Wet N Wild agreed to send me a few of their products for the goodie bags I put together for an event.Product Info: Wet…

Anne Hathaway Inspires

You know I find inspiration everywhere don’t you? Even if that means on the red carpet at the Sydney, Australia premiere of Love and Other Drugs. Doesn’t Anne Hathaway, look stunning in this gold Oscar de la Renta mini? It’s from his Spring 2011 collection and if anyone can find me a plus sized knock off, I would love them FOREVER!

We Love Colors Review & Giveaway!

Need to add a little color to your curves? We Love Colors might be able to help. They offer a rainbow of colors in their plus sized tights, 51 to be exact! I was given the opportunity to review a pair of their Nylon/Lycra tights in Charcoal ($15).These opaque tights (courtesy of WLC) matched this charcoal Forever 21 Plus skirt, that I’ve been dying to wear. I just didn’t have any tights to match. The scarf I wore even had some gray in it, so it all came together.Like you, I’ve heard a lot about We Love Colors, but I…

Velvet Feet

I don’t know what it is, but whenever the holidays roll around I have velvet on the brain! Seriously, I just featured those velvet clutches and I now I want velvet shoes! I think it has something to do with my mom dressing me when I was little. She put me in a lot of velvet. I love that lady! And now look at me lusting over velvet shoes! Drooling over all of these shoes…(click on the shoe for shopping details).
