OOTD: Out with the Girls

I had an opportunity to hang out with some of my girls this weekend. After a long day, I didn’t want to wear anything too complicated, but I didn’t want to wear sweats out either. I decided to go with this beautiful Blue Crepe Lattice Cold-Shoulder from Torrid. I even threw my hair up in a high bun. I love the top, but after looking at these images, I feel like I should’ve chosen a smaller size. It’s supposed to have a flowy fit, but I think it’s a little too much for my shape. Now, this is something I’ve only…

Curves and Chaos 2-Year Blogiversary!!

Curves and Chaos is officially 2! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging here this long. You have no idea how appreciative I am of each and every one of you that has visited and commented on my blog. I look back over the past two years and I see how much I’ve changed. But, one thing has remained the same, my love for fashion, shopping, beauty, and all things curvy. My confidence has grown beyond measure and I thank you for that. I still and will always believe in loving yourself inside and out. One thing I’m REALLY appreciative of…

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris’ Because You’re Worth It

We are in the midst of award season and this nail color is perfect! L’Oreal Paris’ Because You’re Worth  is an amazing gold. It’s part of the new Colour Riche collection and this color is part of the Iconic Muse color story (there are four). “Daring and elegant, the Iconic Muse isn’t afraid of a little risk and loves to make a strong color statement.” -Loreal.com It’s soft but has a beautiful sheen.

OOTD: A Night with Salt-N-Pepa

When I was in elementary school, I was in cheerleading and we put together a dance routine to “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa. So innapropriate, I know! LOL! I’ve loved them ever since. Last night, I had the opportunity to attend a launch party for McDonald’s new Chicken McBites and guess who was performing? Yes!! Salt-N-Pepa!! I was too excited!! I didn’t know what to wear, then I remembered I had this jumpsuit from Torrid in my closet (not available). I threw on these heavy earrings from Forever21, ring from Torrid, and clutch from Dama Handbags. It was an awesome night. I…

Style Trend: Polka Dots

It’s polka dot time again! Although the black with white dots color scheme is the original, you’re not limited to just those colors. Let’s get a little adventurous and try something a little different. You can find polka dots in lots of different color combos and sizes-from tiny to big. And if you’re one of those that doesn’t like to wear prints, you can grab an accessory like a shoe, scarf, handbag, and even an umbrella. No excuses! 1.MICHAEL Michael Kors via Saks Fifth Avenue 2.Ashley Stewart 3.Charlotte Russe 4.Sonia by Sonia Rykiel via Net-a-Porter 5.ModCloth 6.Muze via Nordstrom 7.Stop…

Beauty Buzz: JAFRA Makeup Remover

I’m one of “those” girls that hates to take off their makeup before bed. Yeah…yeah…I know. I especially, dislike trying to remove eye makeup. I can never find a remover that is gentle enough and does its job. Little did I know, the answer was under my nose the entire time. I was gifted a bottle of JAFRA’s Makeup Remover for Eyes and Lips ($12) last year and forgot all about it. I don’t know what I was thinking. Maybe it was hiding from me? This is one of the best makeup removers I’ve ever tried. It’s so amazingly gentle and…

New Plus Size Fashion Show on TLC?

If you read my post  Mixed Messages you know how I feel about TLC’s show What Not To Wear. This show features co-host Stacy London, a fashion expert who tells women what they should and shouldn’t wear. According to The Hollywood Reporter, London got the green light for eight episodes of a new fashion series. It’s untitled at the moment, but the article states it will feature husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan. They own plus size boutique Lee Lee’s Velise in Brooklyn, New York.  The show will revolve around the boutique and the customers. A lot like…
