Shoe Fever: Dolce Vita

If you read this blog, then you know my love for shoes…especially Dolce Vita. Say hello to Rosetta, Dahlia, Briar, and Jemma. Aren’t they beauties? As I get ready for fall, I can’t help but think ahead and start looking for new shoes. I don’t normally buy suede, for many reasons, but these are true inspiration aren’t they? I will take one of each please. Now, if only the Shoe Gods will listen…

Style Trend: The Kimono

The Kimono, a traditional Japanese garment, has always inspired fashion trends. Kimono actually means “a thing put on.” And derives from ki “wear” and mono “thing.” Just a little fashion lesson for ya. It’s normally a long length robe, with wide sleeves and wide sash at the waist. And it was a definite inspiration for these pieces I found below at Style369.com, Evans.co.uk, and DorothyPerkins.com. They feature the the wide sleeves and some even have a sash as the waist. It’s definitely not your traditional Kimono, it’s just a trend inspired by it. I’m dying over the Dorothy Perkin’s Orange kimono dress!…

Vogue Curvy and Fluvia Lacerda=Yay!

My girl Fluvia Lacerda has made ANOTHER appearance in Vogue Italia’s Curvy web site. She posed for the “Bathing Suits for Curvy Women” feature.She looks stunning and I’m happy they are using a size 18 model. Make sure you leave a comment, so they know how much we love them using her and models that look like her. But, I will say…I’m kind of sad they covered her up in all the images they chose. She’s a very confident women with a beautiful body. There’s no need to cover that up!

Custom Plus is Customizable for You

I got this “Confidently Curvy” undies by Custom Plus at Full Figure Fashion Week. When I wear them, I feel super sexy and sassy. I can’t help it.Custom Plus is a “custom apparel site, which caters exclusively to the plus size consumer.” That means you can design your own pair of undies, tank top, t-shirt, or tote bag with your own design or choose one of theirs. And the best part is, they offer sizes 0-32!It’s not just for women either. They carry men, youth, babies, toddlers, and apparel for dogs. Yes, dogs…Fluffy gets a t-shirt. Their customizing tool is super…

A Turquoise Summer

It was another hot weekend in Souther California! I know it’s been hot all over the country and that makes it hard to actually want to go outside. But, I had a 3-year-old’s Hello Kitty birthday party to go to. You can’t miss those! I grabbed this Fashion to Figure dress I’ve had in my closet for a few weeks and it was perfect weather to wear it. Besides, this is one of the colors I’ve been loving this summer. The dress is no longer available on the web site, but I can tell you it’s a beautiful turquoise rayon…
