Torrid has a Maternity Line?

Yes, like you, I had no idea Torrid carried maternity clothes. Most of the pieces are “internet exclusives” and very basic pieces. Have you actually seen any of these pieces in the store? And if or when you’re pregnant, can you see yourself shopping for your maternity clothes at Torrid?

What I Wore: Chinese Laundry Party

I am in a shoe obsessed mood right now, so bear with me. I can thank Chinese Laundry for that. Last night, I spent a few hours over at the Chinese Laundry Golden Globes after party held at the W hotel in Hollywood.The night was filled with laughter and fun (wink wink) with a few gal pals. There were even a few interesting sightings. It was held in “The Living Room” inside the W, which was massive.You can check out the photos on their Facebook page here. I wore this top by L8ter clothing via Macy’s, tights from Target, and…

My CoverGirl Makeover

My night as a CoverGirl was a very exciting night! Now, you get to see my makeover process during the “Primping Party.” I was having technical difficulties after the party and I couldn’t post the video until now. My hair was styled by Besma of the Frederic Fekkai Salon and my makeup was done by Toby Fleischman. I felt so glamorous! Below are the products I received as part of my experience: CG & Olay Simply Ageless Serum PrimerCG & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting BlushCG & Olay Simply Ageless FoundationCoverGirl Clean Oil Control Pressed PowderCoverGirl Lash Blast Length MascaraCoverGirl Smokey Shadow…

Topshop’s Got it Handled

Move over handbags, the satchel with the handle is making it’s mark as one of my favorite bags of the season! I love all handbags and I don’t discriminate, but this style is definitely on my to-buy list. I found a great selection over at Topshop. It doesn’t hurt that most of them can be worn as crossbody bags which is a bonus in my book. Especially, since I need my hands free for shopping. The Coral Leather Lock Handle Bag is divine, but for $110, I might need to find a cheaper alternate. Unless I can get my hands…

Just My Size…Proving me wrong.

If there’s one thing I love more than anything, it’s getting proven wrong when it comes to clothing. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true. I love that feeling of thinking a clothing brand is one way and then finding out I was completely mistaken. I’m kinda ashamed to say that’s how I felt about the Just My Size clothing line. I had this whole idea that because it was sold at Walmart that I wouldn’t like it and the quality wouldn’t be that great. Why do I even judge clothing before I try it? I don’t know! I am…

Snow Boots for the Fashionista

As I write this, the snow has already begun to fall in the Northeast. Brrrr…I love the snow, but what I’ve heard about this storm is not appealing. So, what does any fashionista do in the snow? Put on fabulous snow boots of course! As a California girl, I’ve never owned a pair of snow boots. The closest I’ve gotten to any cold weather boots are my trusty Uggs. Sad, I know.Boots by MICHAEL Michael KorsBoots by Aquatalia by Marvin KIf I had to choose a free pair, I’d definitely take these Aquatalia boots for a whopping $450 or this…

Beauty Buzz: KleanSpa

Little did I know a scented mist I received in a swag bag at BlogHer would start a beauty love affair with KleanSpa. First of all, I’m not a fan of strong over powering scents. I love natural floral and fruity scents and the KleanSpa mist was so yummy! KleanSpa is a company that is dedicated to sharing their gift of “scentual discovery with others by providing luxurious and refreshing products.” Products that are “high quality, competitively-priced, naturally-focused, while pleasing the body, nose and spirit.”Of course the mist isn’t the only thing I’ve fallen in love with.
