My Denim Dilemma

Yes…you read that correctly…I have a denim dilemma. I just can’t seem to find that perfect pair of jeans. It’s so annoying because, I love wearing denim. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m wearing it in about 90% of my outfit posts.

City Chic Denim Review

The denim curiosity started in Las Vegas. From the moment I saw model Fluvia Lacerda in a pair of City Chic jeans, I knew I had to try them out. She has amazing curves and these jeans hugged her in all the right places.And since skinny jeans are all the rage, I wanted to do something a little different by picking the Lace Up Wide Leg Jean ($58). I think this my might be my new favorite cut.I do have a high waist, so low rise jeans are not for me. For some reason, I thought these were higher waisted,…

The Skinny Jean Revolution

You thought it was just a fad.You were told curvy girls couldn’t wear them.You tried them on and uncertainty set in.Now, every where you turn you see them.

How do you know you can’t wear it unless you try it on?For some reason, that’s what I thought when I saw this top I’m wearing here. My first instinct is to throw a sweater over it, but it’s hot here! Then I tried it on and I loved it. Courtesy of Torrid, the Black Butterfly…

OOTD: Torrid Review Part I

Last night was date night with the hubby. I had the pleasure of wearing a few things courtesy of Torrid. I wore this Ivory Asymmetrical Ruffle top ($28) and the Source of Wisdom Virtual Stretch Distressed Skinny Jean (on sale $42). This photo was taken after a delicious steak dinner, I should of thought about this before wearing a skinny jean.The ruffle top was extremely soft and comfy, but it was a little big on me. I usually wear a US size 18 and this was a Torrid size 2. I think the size 1 would have been perfect. I…

City Chic’s Denim Inspiration

I think I have to get my hands on a denim vest! I found these pics on City Chic’s Inside City Chic blog. These are only two of the lovely looks from their new “lady like lookbook.” I love the ruggedness of the denim and the delicate touch the flowers give the outfit. A great combination!
