John Eshaya for Torrid Now Available!

John Eshaya, the celeb stylist, has finally arrived at Torrid
Take a peek and tell me if you like this collection, that was exclusively designed for this trendy plus size brand. I was kind of hoping there’d be more pieces available. 
 I think you might see one of these pieces on me soon. xoxo

In a Cobalt Blue kind of Mood

Ever since I wore that blue dress to the Full Figured Fashion Week runway finale, I can’t get the color out of my head.

Now, it’s not just any kind of blue, it’s more like cobalt blue. It can easily transition into the fall season and looks good on pretty much anyone. Don’t we love that?

You know I’ve said it before, but adding an accessory in a bright color like this really stands out. And it’s easier to experiment with these bold colors, when it’s just a shoe or piece of jewelry.

Just look at this Enigma Slide Sandal from Endless.com and BCBGMaxAzria Abstract Stone Bracelet from Lord & Taylor. I can see these accessories getting a lot of use out of them.

Once again…you know I can’t leave my UK ladies out! I found this Ravel Generous Wedge Sandal and Elasticated Cuff Bracelet (on sale!) over on the plus size ladies fashion web site Marisota.

I can just see me know wearing them with a white summer dress.

Now, that I’m looking at these colors, I can’t help but be reminded of the beach or a cold glass of water. LOL! I’m such a day dreamer!!

Are a fan of cobalt blue?

Sexiness in the Mail with Panty By Post

There’s nothing like getting beautiful and sexy French lingerie in the mail. OK…I’ve never really gotten French lingerie in the mail until recently. Panty By Post sent me this amazing pair of lace lavender (super soft) undies from their Signature Line.

Sign up for one of their monthly subscriptions (from the Signature Line or Bridal Line) and you can get a panty or two each month in the mail. The guys can even get in on this too with an Eco-pouch boxer. You also have a choice of thong, hipster, bikini, or a mix of styles. They go up to a size xxxxl and they mail internationally.

Buy a subscription for yourself or as a gift. Imagine getting a “A pretty panty. Mailed Monthly.” I think I can get used to this. “The secret to French women’s confidence? It’s all about what’s underneath.”

Sneak Peek of Carmakoma’s Autumn/Winter Collection

This really is a sneak of a sneak peek of the Autumn/Winter collection from everyone’s favorite Danish brand, Carmakoma.

According to Carmakoma…

”Eyes on you” is created in tribute to the strong and independent woman, who enjoys life and the attention surrounding her.

This woman is well-balanced and fearless of the attention her positive energy and strength fosters – she has the courage to indulge in it. Her curiosity for the unknown and her persistent personality gives her the strength to be and think differently. Strong and determined she explores the world and refuses to compromise. She discovers life with an experimental mind and seizes the moment and any opportunity when present.

The styles in this collection are designed to create a fine balance between the simple and the sophisticated. The curvy woman is given the perfect opportunity to style herself compatible with her personal expression and mood in the event of any occasion. We strive for the perfect fit, which compliments her curvy body. The individual identity is constructed and created – compromise is no option. A beautiful ´butterfly´ unfolds.


I can’t wait to see this collection. The images look very sexy. Don’t you just love wearing all black.

“Eyes on You” will be available in shops August/September 2011.

A Good Dress is Hard to Find

You know the saying…a good man is hard to find. Well, I’ve changed it around a bit. A good dress is hard to find.

What do you have to do around here to find a dress that isn’t too short (butt hanging out) and too tight (my ribs are showing)? I will save all that for the bolder and more courageous curvy girls.

I will stick to the classic, yet chic silhouettes with a fun print. Please for the love of fashion. Don’t be afraid of prints! I know I say that all the time, but it’s true.

For me, these styles are so versatile. A lot of them are easy to dress up or down, day to night. You know me. I have to have options. Something like this strapless empire waist Donna Morgan dress (left). OK, I really want this dress.

Don’t worry my gorgeous UK readers, I didn’t forget about you. I found these printed dresses while searching the womens clothing catalogues of JD Williams. No fair, I wish they shipped to the U.S.

I guess all the good dresses are online. That’s where I found these. Time to get my online shopping on.

What is your favorite style of dress? 
A printed maxi, the romantic empire, or short & sexy?

Bubbles & Bites with Gilt City & Hpnotiq Harmonie

 I really do hate missing out on a beauty event. But, you all know I’ve been sick. I was so heart broken to miss the Bubbles & Bites party over at Benefit Cosmetic’s Santa Monica location.

It was sponsored by Gilt City LA and HPNOTIQ Harmonie. I “heard” the lucky guests were pampered with mini makeovers as they sipped on delicious HPNOTIQ inspired cocktails and indulged in tasty sweet treats from the HPNOTIQ candy bar.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the ultra-exclusive swag bag.  It was filled with some of Benefit’s newest products, including their oh so popular BADgal Lash Ultra Mascara! I can’t wait to use it. I hear nothing but great things about Benefit.

What’s your favorite Benefit Cosmetic beauty product? 

Gilt City, is the newest site from Gilt that offers you the biggest deals in your city. Get going! Start shopping Gilt City while sipping on a HARMONIE Blush cocktail (only if you’re 21+ over of course). They are yummy! I’ve had one before.

Disclosure: I didn’t attend this event, but I was gifted a complimentary gift bag. The above is my true and honest opinion. 

Why Size Discrimination?

I’m VERY irritated with this so-called fashion industry, fashion scene, or fashion whatever. As a designer, you have the right to create whatever you like, in any size, and for any person. There are no boundaries to what you design or envision to be fashion. You can be as brave and bold or as simple as you want. There is an infinite amount of freedom to express who you are in your designs. Read more

DefShop is Hip Hop & Streetwear

You’re curvy, you adore Hip Hop, maybe you skate, and you love Streetwear fashion. I knew you were out there.

After spending time in New York City, I can definitely appreciate all types of fashion. Especially style that comes from the streets. I am so jealous of those who can actually pull it off. And now that streetwear had definitely gone retro, I’m getting flash backs just writing this.

I was checking out Def Shop, a Hip Hop and Streetwear online boutique from Europe, and I instantly fell for the retro inspired shoes. Especially, those nice sneakers, like the Nike’s. This is all sooooo 1980′s, from the Adidas bags, brightly colored watches, headphones, and wayfarer sunglasses. I hope I’m not showing my age here.

Don’t worry ladies. If the Hip Hop look isn’t for you, you can also get your bohemian chic look with brands like Flamenco Chic, Italy Style, and Coolway. They do have plus sizes too! And I need that blue scarf in my life.

Remember, the best thing about buying from a European store is the opportunity of buying brands that you can’t normally find in the U.S. Yay! for online shopping and international shipping.

Are you a Hip Hop or Streetwear fashionista?
