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! LOL! Ugh…I don’t know why I do this to myself. Thank goodness for amazing friends. They are so amazingly supportive and helpful. And a big THANK YOU to Robin and Shalon for walking in the show for me. Shalon wore a beautiful DKNYC wrap dress and Robin rocked a Jessica Simpson floral dress (both available at 365Hangers.com). And they both worked that runway! It was a lot of fun. 

The event was held at Space 1520 in Los Angeles on a drizzly morning, but thank goodness the sun came out! There was music and shopping. Belina, Dama Handbags, Nicolita, and Mr. Kate were on hand. We had snacks from PopChips, drinks from Dry Soda Co., and candy from The Candy Chef! And don’t get me started on my amazing gift bag. Lots of goodies from Argo Tea, Dama Handbags, NCLA, Pure Ice, Chipkos, The Candy Chef, and Mr. Kate. Thank you to the entire 365Hangers.com team…especially Sasha and Ferial. xoxo

Here are some pics I took…had a little fun when editing them. LOL! Hope you like!

My AMAZINGLY beautiful models, Shalon and Robin.

Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary gift bag at this event.

Los Angeles Event: Win FREE Tickets to Sassy City Chicks!!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you know I’ve been to a few of the Sassy City Chicks events here in Los Angeles, it’s a sample sale heaven! You’ll find fashion and beauty items up to 80% off. You’ll get to indulge in spa treatments and sip on yummy cocktails!

Is Southern California your home? Then you should definitely check it out on April 26, 2012 at the Petersen Automotive Museum. In case you’re wondering, there weren’t really many plus size vendors at the last event, but they have a great jewelry and handbag selection. And there are some pieces that run big and could possible be compared to a size 14/16. I’m hoping (crossing fingers) they find a few vendors this year with curvy women in mind.

Want to join us? You’re in luck! I have 25 tickets to give out! Southern California residents only please!

Be one of the FIRST 25 fashionistas to enter code CURVES at checkout and you’ll get a FREE Sassy Tote Ticket! Includes admission, swag bag, open bar, & more.

Los Angeles Event: 365Hangers.com Style-A-Thon

Hello my loves! I hope you had an amazing weekend. If you did…yay! If you didn’t…boo! I hope this Monday is a lot better for you. Don’t have “a case of the Monday’s.” LOL! I guess lack of sleep is making me a little silly right now.

Anyways…I wanted to share an event I’m participating in this Saturday, March 31st. I will be one of four bloggers helping to style a fashion show at the 365Hangers Style-A-Thon here in Los Angeles. I will send three beautiful models down the runway wearing fashion from 365Hangers.com.

365Hangers.com is an awesome place to score women’s designer fashion at sample sale prices. Seriously…you wouldn’t even believe how amazing the prices are. As of right now, they only offer up to a size 16, but I think there may be bigger sizes in their future (crossing fingers).

If you live in Los Angeles, I’d love to see you! The event is FREE, but you should RSVP here. There will be shopping and complimentary manis. Let me know if you’re going!! Thank you in advance for your support…as always! xoxo

MAGIC, Project, and Pool Tradeshow Photos

Here are the rest of my photos from MAGIC, Project, and the Pool Tradeshow. Like I had said before, these spaces were so huge! There was such an array of clothes and accessories. Once again, we didn’t get to see everything.

MAGIC and Project were home to fashion brands, while the Pool Tradeshow was more of the indie designers and brands. It was amazing. Ivory (www.ivoryjinelle.blogspot.com) and I had a chance to chat with the ladies over at Nation LTD. They’re really passionate about their plus pieces that you can find at Nordstrom. That’s very inspiring! I also fell in love with the fringe handbags from Ember Skye at Project. I loved the colors!

And I died over the jewelry from Cosmic Thread  and Designs by Alicia P. at the Pool Tradeshow. The jewelry was very unique! Loved it.  I had such an amazing time and I can’t wait for my next WWDMAGIC visit!

MAGIC’s FN Platform: Part 2

Here are more photos from MAGIC’s FN Platform. I don’t think you ladies understand how many shoes there were! We didn’t even cover the entire thing. I know my feet would’ve of been dead at the end of that day!

I was most impressed with Betsey Johnson and Charles Whittington. Of course I always love a fun shoe like Betsey Johnson, but I was loving the double stiletto by Charles Whittington. Isn’t it cool? It’s trademarked people…so don’t try to steal it! Just love it!

MAGIC’s FN Platform: Part 1

I’m back my loves! I’ve spent the past few days in Las Vegas for MAGIC. It was a few days of fashion heaven. Seriously. The first day was exhausting, but in a good way. Ivory from www.ivoryjinelle.blogspot.com and Cid of www.cidstylefile.com spent the morning at FN Platform.

Footwear News (FN) collaborates with MAGIC to bring over 1,500 labels together, in men, womens, juniors, and kids shoes. It was insane! Not only were there established brands, but there were also new brands I couldn’t get enough of! A group of us bloggers were given a little tour around where we met up with the designers and people of Pour La Victoire, 80%20, Coye Nokes, House of Harlow, and Foot Petals.

It was so awesome to be able to get a sneak peek into their fall collections. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take photos of all the shoes. But, I did take a lot of photos of others. I decided to break the up in a few parts over the next few days.

I’ll See You at WWDMAGIC!

I think I’m about to walk myself right into a fashion craze on Monday. I’ve been to a few blogging conferences and events. But, I don’t think I’ve ever been to anything this big before! Next week, I’ll be attending WWDMAGIC in Las Vegas!

WWDMAGIC is “the” fashion tradeshow. There will be over 5,000+ men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel, footwear and accessories brands. They meet here twice a year to showcase their latest designs. In other words, it’s a mecca for buyers and fashion bloggers. I guess I’ll make it my NYFW, without the runways.

Take a look:

 

You can follow me on Twitter @CurvesandChaos or the #MAGICLV hashtag, where I’ll be tweeting about my Las Vegas experience. And if I have time, I’ll try to post while I’m there. So excited…I have to go and pack!

Getting Red Carpet Ready with L’Oreal Paris & Giveaway!!

Who’s going to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday? We are now officially in award season and that means lots of gifting suites. I was invited to the L’Oreal Paris beauty suite inside the HBO Luxury Lounge at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. It was a day of pampering, which I really needed. And I got to hang out with my friend Lisann, who’s in town for the weekend.

L’Oreal Paris is celebrating 40 years of beauty, so it only seemed fit that the room was designed with gold touches everywhere! My makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist April. She gave me some helpful tips while using some of L’Oreal’s hottest products. Connie gave me one of the best manicures I’ve had in a long time…Thank goodness! This is my first time trying out their nail polish, and so far so good with their new line Colour Riche. Then the funny and talented Romero styled my hair. He had us cracking up! He gave me a very Bridget Bardot-inspired hair style.

This weekend celebrities will be get all primped and pampered courtesy of L’Oreal Paris, just like me for Sunday’s award show. I can’t wait to see the red carpet and what my favorite actresses are wearing and how they’re styled.

L’Oreal Paris wants to help get you “red carpet ready” for award season, with an awesome giveaway! Find out how you can enter to win an amazing package after the photos below!
