Snow Boots for the Fashionista

As I write this, the snow has already begun to fall in the Northeast. Brrrr…I love the snow, but what I’ve heard about this storm is not appealing. So, what does any fashionista do in the snow? Put on fabulous snow boots of course! As a California girl, I’ve never owned a pair of snow boots. The closest I’ve gotten to any cold weather boots are my trusty Uggs. Sad, I know.Boots by MICHAEL Michael KorsBoots by Aquatalia by Marvin KIf I had to choose a free pair, I’d definitely take these Aquatalia boots for a whopping $450 or this…

Style & Designer: Calvin Klein

Plus Tops by Calvin Klein JeansPumps by Calvin KleinKnown for chic and sleek styles, American Sportswear designer Calvin Klein never disappoints. In fact, my first pair of designer plus size jeans were by Calvin Klein and believe me when I say I wore them out! I loved them and of course they were on sale. What’s your experience with Calvin Klein pieces been like?

Designer Binge with Bluefly

I think I’m going on a designer binge after checking out Milan Fashion Week. It’s all I can think about and sometimes that’s not such a good thing for a girl like me on a budget. But hey, it doesn’t hurt to look and save money for a much needed pair of designer sunglasses. I’m just sayin’! I’m still looking for the perfect pair.Hmmm…maybe these Prada and Gucci sunglasses from Bluefly will make it into my “shopping cart.” PradaGucci While I’m at it, let’s take a look at a Fendi bag. There’s nothing like a classic Fendi shoulder bag. Sometimes, this…

Designer Details: Fendi Spring 2011

I know I call myself a bargainista, but there’s nothing wrong with looking at beautiful designer pieces. In fact, they give me so much inspiration for the upcoming seasons. I have always been a fan of Fendi. This Italian super design house has never really disappointed me. Their Spring 2011 line was a stunner at Milan, and of course I am eyeing all of their hot accessories. All that red is killing me!! images: style.com

New York Fashion Week Day 1 Recap

Day 1 of New York Fashion week has come and gone. I saw a lot of mixing of prints, clean lines, military inspired looks, romantic pieces and bare midriffs? Really? Bare midriffs? Oh well. Here are a “few” of the Spring 2011 pieces I liked. I’m not a professionally paid fashion critic but, I really had to look hard for these! Hopefully, day 2 will be more inspiring.Jen KaoBensoniRuffianVena CavaChristian Sirianoimages: style.com

Designer Details: Roksanda Ilincic

Raise your hand if you love big hair? I do! I do! You’ll have to excuse the enthusiasm, but I love big fun hair. I always think of the time my bff teased her hair out in Las Vegas. She looked like an extra in a 80’s rock music video. It was awesome. Now, imagine how much I loved the Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2010 line that graced the London runways. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Oh…btw…be prepared for big hair to be a hot spring trend!{images: style.com}
