“Jockey Person to Person is designed for your life”

Did you know Jockey has a clothing line? Known for their underwear and basics, the Jockey Person to Person collection is fashionable and practical. I’ve tried a few of their pieces like the Burnout Hoodie, Bootcut Jeans, and Rib Tank. I get a lot of compliments on the hoodie when I wear it. The pieces are not only comfortable, but they actually fit. The line does go up to a 3X and a lot of the pieces are versatile. Head designer Sunil Ramchandani has designed lines for Anne Klein and Queen Latifah. The line consists of denim, tops, outerwear, activewear and…

$25 and Under: Handbags

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, there’s no need to give up hope on great deals. I found you a few chic handbags all $25 and under. Now, you better hurry, because with some of these prices starting at $11.99 they are probably going to sell out fast if they haven’t already. (Just click on the handbag to be directed to the retail site.)

Shopbop Blog Love & $100 Gift Card Giveaway

Can you believe the holidays are already here! Are you ready? I’m not. Not at all. In fact, I haven’t even thought about gifts yet. Now, that this post has me thinking about it, I’m always pretty safe when it comes to picking them out. I like to lean toward things like accessories.

Thank goodness I was reading the Shopbop blog. I was instantly inspired to check out their accessories, like their selection of women’s hats. Great gift ideas. I wouldn’t mind a stunning cloche. I’m just saying…

Everyone loves accessories! Who doesn’t love Tilo Scarves or a gorgeous suede clutch from Maison Scotch? They are no-brainer gifts.

I’d love to get you started on that holiday shopping. One lucky reader will win a $100 Shopbop gift card!

L.A. Love: Rachel Pally Warehouse Sale

If you live in the Southern California area, you don’t want to miss the Rachel Pally Warehouse Sale. Unfortunately, I missed the last one. But, I promise you I WILL NOT MISS THIS NEXT ONE. Mark my words. I’m on a mission. I love her clothes and I need more in my life. These really are amazing prices you won’t find anywhere else. So mark your calendars. The dates are on the flyer. Maybe I’ll see you there!

Cuff Inspiration 2

I know we all have shopping on the brain at this point of the week. Thanksgiving is a little over a day away and Black Friday is all you’re going to hear from here on out. I’m going to pass on posting BF sales here on the blog, I think everyone else is going to do a great job of that. Instead, I’m bringing you jewelry. Actually…gold cuffs. I’ve been looking for a few lately. You already know my love for cuffs since my big hands don’t fit in regular bracelets. And all of these would compliment a range of…

My Black Friday Shopping Tips

Some of you might think “Black Friday” is just a regular old shopping day. Wrong. It’s not. The day after Thanksgiving is the holy grail of shopping days to retailers. It’s the day where they expect to turn the most profit. That means amazing deals, discounts, and specials. A few years ago, retailers were opening the doors at 6 a.m., now they are opening at 12 a.m. Walmart is opening their doors at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. These retailers are not joking around! And neither are the shoppers. I just read about a lady who starting camping outside of a…

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara

I wrote this post for my other blog, but I wanted to share it with you here. I had an opportunity to try out out L’Oreal Paris’ Voluminous False Fiber Lashes ($8.95) mascara. They want you to “Never Fake It Again.” According to L’Oreal, “Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara reinvents the false eyelash look, making it possible to achieve the clean impact of professionally-applied false lashes. A combination of super-fine nylon and rayon fibers perfectly adhere to natural lashes, enveloping them from root to tip thanks to an exclusive polymer in the formula. Meanwhile, an architectural precision brush with a 40-degree…

F21 Dress Replay in Chicago

Last week, I made my way to Chicago for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference. I was bummed that I couldn’t take any time to see my girls out there (you know who you are). For the award’s gala, I wore this Forever 21 dress, that you might have seen me wear here. It was such a fun night! I love hanging out with my fellow bloggers! I was nominated for two awards: Best Latin@ Lifestyle Blogger and Best Latin@ Social Networker. I did walk away with the best lifestyle blogger award. What an honor!! Really!! I’m truly blessed. Thank…

Dorothy Perkin’s Disco Fever

I’m a biiiiiiig fan of the 1970’s disco era. When I was little, I used to love looking at old photos of my mom wearing her mini skirts and hot pants. Soooo 70’s! There’s just something about the music and fashion that combine to make good times. And don’t forget about the sparkle of it all. The fashion from that era definitely mimicked a disco ball. Looks like Dorothy Perkins found the disco inspiration in these pieces below. FYI…Dorothy Perkins only goes up to a US size 18. And their web site is now available to the US. Which dress…

Shoe Fever: Dolce Vita

I’m so in love with Dolce Vita shoes. I wish they offered shoe-a-holics a lifetime membership. You just pay a yearly fee and they just send you shoes when they come out. Yeah, I know there are a lot of shoe companies like this, but I want Dolce Vita! If they did, I’d be one happy girl.

Just look! This round of new arrivals has really caught my attention. It’s like little bits of suede deliciousness.

City Chic Lingerie Lookbook

OK ladies…I don’t want to hear any more excuses. There’s no need to complain about not having lingerie that fits. Plus size lingerie is popping up everywhere. And this includes one of my favorite retailers, City Chic. You may have seen the beautiful Tocarra wearing their pieces in the October issue of Plus Model Magazine. The new line carries bras, panties, and shapewear. Sexy! And you’re going to love this…it’s all 30% off right now.

Brrrrr…it’s Beret Time

I’m back from Chicago and brrrrrr…it was chilly there and this L.A. girl loved it. After seeing everyone bundled up, I started to think about how you can stay warm, but look chic at the same too. How about a beret? I really like this Pins and Needles Basketweave bow beret from Urban Outfitters ($14.99). There’s no need to be afraid of berets like this, you don’t have to be in in Paris to wear one. You can find them in almost every accessory store during the fall and winter. And they vary in price and design. From embellishment’s like…
