Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 “JMS Style Breakfast”

And the photos keep on coming! Yes, I told you I took over 2,000 photos…I was not kidding. LOL! On day two of Full Figured Fashion Week, we were invited to a breakfast by Just My Size (JMS). We got a look at their summer collection and a sneak peek into their fall/winter line. I’m loving their undies! We chatted and ate yummy food. It was also a great way to meet the JMS team whom I’ve been working with. They’re so great and dedicated to dressing the plus size woman. Are you a JMS fan?  Disclosure: I received a…

OOTD: Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves at Sea” All White Sunset Cruise

You’ll have to excuse these photos, LOL! I took these bad boys at the end of the night. I was tired and my clothes were a little wrinkled. Anyways…as you may or may have not known…I was having a very hard time finding my “all white” outfit for the “Curves at Sea” cruise. I was trying to find something that no one else would be wearing. It was so hard! As plus size girls…and as most of you will agree…we don’t have as many fashion options. I wanted to wear something comfortable, I learned my lesson from last year. Monique…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 “Curves In The City” Shopping Event

Who doesn’t love shopping? Really? The Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves In The City” shopping event was pretty much what I needed at this point. I snatched up a beautiful Queen Grace dress for $34! In my world, that’s pretty exciting! Vendors sold clothes, jewelry, beauty products, and accessories. I even got a bra fitting by Cacique, which you should get every 6 months by-the-way. And don’t get me started on the cake pops I devoured courtesy of MYNT 1792-they definitely have my attention right now. Of course, I was snapping away…here are more pics! *All photos were taken by…

Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves at Sea” All White Sunset Cruise

As we waited in line to board Full Figured Fashion Week’s “Curves at Sea” All White Sunset Cruise, all I could think of was how beautiful everyone looked. Of course, I was also looking to see how many of these beautiful ladies were wearing the same thing, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were only one or two repeats. Yay! I know it was hard to find what I was going to wear. LOL! The cruise was so much fun with the Sonsi Photo Booth (that I missed), the swag bags, and the FFFWeek Big and Tall…

Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 Press Event

PHEW!!! I’m back from Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) in New York and I’m exhausted! LOL! But, it’s a good kind of exhausted. Let me just start off my saying, that if you haven’t made it out to any of the FFFWeek events, then I highly recommend you trying to attend next year. It was such an amazing experience!! To see fashion for us on a runway  in New York City never gets old! I was a member of The Fashion Front, a selected group of bloggers to cover all of the FFFWeek events. We were given early access and…

Tips for a Fresh Summer Look

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit http://www.discoverbeautywithin.com/ Hello my loves! Summer is almost here and I want to know if you’re ready to face the hot weather. I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but in Los Angeles we can see days in the 90’s and almost in the 100’s! That’s crazy hot!! There are so many different ways to get yourself ready for the summer. You might be thinking about what you’re going to wear and where you’ll…

Hello my loves! The countdown to Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) is almost complete. Tomorrow I will be in New York City! It feels so awesome to say that. I will be surrounded by fashionistas in one of my favorite cities. I’m looking forward to so much while I’m there, I don’t even know where to start. If you couldn’t make it this year (which sucks by the way), then you can follow me on Twitter via @CurvesandChaos where I’ll be tweeting the entire week. I’m part of the official Fashion Front, so I’m going to be everywhere!! You can…

My Favorite Designer Sunglasses for Summer!

If you didn’t know, I once sold designer sunglasses at Nordstrom. It was probably one of my favorite retail jobs! Hellooooo…I got to see the styles before anyone else and I got an employee discount. It didn’t get any better than that. My wallet didn’t like it so much, but I loved it. Now, I lust after designer glasses like Gucci and Fendi. Many people don’t understand the love for a great quality pair of sunglasses, but I do. The craftsmanship and quality is a million times better and if you take care of them then they’ll last a lifetime.…

I want to try…Va Bien!

Just look at the stunning Melissa McCarthy in Va Bien’s Lacey Full Figure Bustier in the February 2012 issue of W! And if there’s one thing I love it’s sexy lingerie! Was that TMI? Sorry, but when you wear something sexy like this underneath your outfit, that has to put a little sexy “pep-in-your-step” for the day! Va Bien, French for “Fits Well,” has been around since 1979 creating glamorous and sexy lingerie and shapewear. It’s been worn by celebrities like Dita Von Teese, former first lady Laura Bush, Alicia Silverstone, Patti Labelle, and Jessica Lange. That’s a wide range…

Style Trend: Bold Prints and Bright Colors

I can’t seem to keep my eyes off all of the bold prints and bright colors I’m seeing everywhere. It all started with this chic red, black, and white Anne Klein dress (below). There’s just something about it. I want it so bad! Surprise Surprise…I think I have a serious “want” problem. Aye…anywhoo take a look below and let me know which looks have caught your eye.

This Week’s Fashion Frustration

Blame it on me not feeling well or the fact that I waited until the last minute, but I am “fashion frustrated” at the moment. I can not seem to find anything to wear for Full Figured Fashion Week. I know I still have about 4 days left to shop, but come on! And with my back hurting the way it has, I can’t leave my house and the hubby hates to shop, so I’ve been stuck searching online. And don’t even get me started on what I’m going to wear to the “All White Sunset Cruise.” Do you know…
