My Favorite Faces of 2011

If I’m going to do any kind of 2011 recap, I’m definitely going to add my favorite plus models of the year. These models are taking the fashion world by storm. You’ve seen these ladies everywhere and there’s no stopping them! I personally know a few of them and I can tell you they are amazingly sweet and down to earth. Each of them are unique in their own way and have curves that kill! If you want to know about more about these beauties click on their photos, most of them are linked to their web sites and Facebook pages.

Holiday Inspired: 3 New Year’s Eve Looks!

It’s New Year’s Eve-Eve! Woohoo! I don’t know what I’m “woohoo-ing” about, I’m still not sure where this chick will be when the clock strikes midnight. But, if I was going out, I’d definitely wear something along the lines of the three looks below. Simply chic with a pops of color is  how I explain these outfits. And if you’re one of those last minute, running around the mall, and looking for something to throw together shoppers-then these should be easy to find pieces. My friend Ivory totally inspired the black and gold look. She has a vintage dress that’s…

2011…Almost out the Door…

Are you as stunned as I am that it’s almost 2012? Time flies when you’re blogging. Is that not the saying? Well, it is now! So, I started reflecting on this past year. Thinking about all the amazing people I’ve met, places I was blessed to visit, and the opportunities that came my way. Blogging really has become a creative outlet for me and to be able to blog about what I love is beyond words. 2012 will bring some changes around here, not major ones. I promise. Just little ones here and there. You’ll definitely see more outfit posts…

Handbag Delight: Rebecca Minkoff

There’s nothing I love more than Rebecca Minkoff Handbags! I adorrrrre! This California native started with apparel in 2001 and designed her first handbag in 2005. It’s been “Handbag Delight” ever since. Today, her collection consists of apparel, handbags, and accessories. I really need to get my butt to one of her sample sales here in L.A. My friend Ivory keeps on telling me to go. OK Ivory, I promise to go to the next one with you!  Geez, you and your shopping pressure! LOL Anywho…back to the bags. Like I was saying…I love them and I’d gladly take one…

New Year’s Eve Necklace Inspiration

It doesn’t have to sparkle, but it does have to stand out. When it comes to my New Year’s Eve jewelry, I always lean towards statement pieces. There’s just something about jewelry that does the talking for you. It’s an easy way to dress up a simply chic dress or a way to add a lot of drama to any cocktail dress. Don’t be afraid! Be bold and daring! Do you have your jewelry for NYE picked out yet?

Christmas Eve Sparkles

 OK…you’re probably sick of me and sequins by now! LOL!! But, to be honest, I’m not. I could probably wear them every day. It’s a sequin addiction!! Maybe it’s just the holidays and maybe it will pass after the new year. We’ll have to wait and see. Until then, this is the outfit I wore on Christmas Eve. Pennington’s sent me their Allover Sequin Tee and I love it. The only issue I have with it , would have to be my hair getting caught in the sequins on the backside of the tee. But, that’s the only thing. lt’s…

Glam Gowns for New Year’s Eve

Hi my loves! I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas. I really had an amazing weekend. And now that Christmas has come and gone, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve. Do you know what you’re wearing? As for me? I don’t even know what I’m doing yet. LOL. You know I’m a last minute kind of girl. Well, if you’re planning to attend a formal event here are a few gowns I found for you. I love the Adrianna Papell one, it’s stunning! Which gown would you pick?

Beauty Buzz: Suave’s Dry Shampoo

This is going to be a short and sweet “Beauty Buzz.” There’s no sugar coating when I’ve found a product I love. I was gifted a small sample can of Suave’s Dry Shampoo at the Two Point Oh L.A. Snowball. I’ve heard all the stories about dry shampoo and even wrote a small post about a certain brand’s new line. But, this is the first time I’ve actually used it. I was supposed to meet up with two of my girls for dinner, but the boiler in my apartment building broke and we didn’t have hot water. There was no…

Comfy & Warm Knits

It’s official my loves! Today is the first day of winter. Well…it’s almost 70 degrees here in L.A., so I’m not really experiencing a chilly winter day. I swear I’m not bragging! I love the cold weather and I wish I could trade you, that way I can wear these warm and comfy knits. These also come in handy if you’re traveling this holiday season. OK…I’m ready to house swap with someone who has snow outside their door right now!

The Shopping Diaries: Shopping Discrimination Continues…

Update: On 12/22/11 I spoke with the manager on duty at this Macy’s location. I explained my experience. He was very kind, understanding, and sincerely apologized. We chatted a bit about it and he said he would definitely speak with the associate. I hope he does and she learns from the incident. There’s no room for size/shopping discrimination. I’ll let my $$$ speak for me from here on out. I’ve worked many years in the retail world. I know what great customer service is and I can spot crappy customer service from a mile away. As a sales associate, I…

Get “Dress”ed with Ashley Stewart

Hey ladies! When was the last time you took a second to shop for dresses at Ashley Stewart? I was just in there the other day and if I wasn’t in such a big hurry I definitely would’ve tried some of them on. I already own their navy blue 10-way dress, but I’m secretly coveting this red one below. I’m a sucker for a red dress. This is a reminder to wear this color more often. It’s such an eye catcher. Some of the dresses below are “web exclusives” and are on sale. Take a second to shop what’s new & hot…
