Style Trend: Bright Blazers

You know it’s all about bright colors this spring! And now blazers are definitely getting in on the action. I know we always complain that we can’t find blazers in our sizes, but I think I might have you covered. I found a few below that are not only in amazingly bold colors, but they come in a range of plus sizes and prices. And they aren’t that traditional blazer style either. Check out the cropped style from Jessica London or this beautiful wrapped style from Ashley Stewart. Throw it over a spring dress or with a pair of your…

OOTD: Pink Leopard

I’m really not trying to brag…OK maybe just a little, but the weather here in Los Angeles was amazing this weekend! Saturday morning, I had some errands to run, but I didn’t want to just throw on anything. I wanted to wear something fun but comfy. I decided on this Pink Leopard Callie Off-Shoulder Tee by Twist Tees and these Light Blue Rolled Cuff Straight Jeans, both courtesy of Torrid. I love this top! When I saw it, I knew I had to try it. It really is a twist on the popular leopard print. And I felt a little…

Beauty Buzz: Neutrogena Naturals

I think Neutrogena has every type of product for almost every type of skin. I should know, I’ve tried a lot of it. Yes, a lot of it. I wish I would of known about their Neutrogena Naturals line when I was going through my “green” phase. It’s free of harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes or phthalates. They use ingredients that are naturally derived. The Neutrogena Naturals collection consists of cleansers, scrubs, make-up removers, lip balm, body bar, moisturizer, and night cream. I’ve been using a few of these products and have found them to be pretty effective. And…

L.A. Love: Rachel Pally Warehouse Sale

It’s that time again Los Angeles! Yes, Rachel Pally is holding another warehouse sale. I don’t know how many times I have to tell you to get your shopping but over there. Where else will you get her designs for 55-85% off? NOWHERE!! I’ve been to three of these already and I always leave with something. It’s so awesome!! I’m going to try and make this one too. I might have to reschedule a few things, but its worth it. The items included in the sale are from the Rachel Pally and White Label lines. So, lots of options. I…

Shoe Fever: The Chunky Heel

I will scream it from the mountain tops…I LOVE A CHUNKY HEEL!! When I wear a shoe with a thick heel, I feel so much safer than if I wore a stiletto. LOL! I feel more grounded and of course more comfortable. You all know I’m totally in love with my Steve Madden platforms. I wear them all of the time. But, now I’m starting to thing I need a fe more pairs. I do…right? Especially since it’s spring and I need brighter colors and styles in my life. Just agree with me at this point.

OOTD: 365Hangers Style-A-Thon

The day of the 365Hangers Style-A-Thon crept up on me. It was like one day they asked me to be a part of it and the next day it was here. I had already planned an outfit out in my head a week in advance, but then I was notified that the weather was going to be kinda cruddy. Yes, we do get cruddy weather here in Los Angeles. So, the outfit I had planned was out the window. Thank goodness Torrid had sent me a few pieces the day before! Phew! I wore this beautiful Teal Chiffon with Embroidered…

Styling at 365Hangers Style-A-Thon

If you know me, then you know I’m kind of a worrier. I tend to stress myself out over little things…sometimes. When I was asked to be one of the bloggers to style a few models for a spring themed runway show at the 365Hangers.com Style-A-Thon, I immediately said Yes! Then I sat back and thought about it…what am I doing? Why did I agree to this? I’ve never done anything like this before, so of course I felt out of my league. Yesterday, I styled two models and I realized I made a lot out of nothing. That’s me!…
