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…

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…

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…

Curves and Chaos 2-Year Blogiversary!!

Curves and Chaos is officially 2! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging here this long. You have no idea how appreciative I am of each and every one of you that has visited and commented on my blog. I look back over the past two years and I see how much I’ve changed. But, one thing has remained the same, my love for fashion, shopping, beauty, and all things curvy. My confidence has grown beyond measure and I thank you for that. I still and will always believe in loving yourself inside and out. One thing I’m REALLY appreciative of…

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…

F21 Dress Replay in Chicago

Last week, I made my way to Chicago for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference. I was bummed that I couldn’t take any time to see my girls out there (you know who you are). For the award’s gala, I wore this Forever 21 dress, that you might have seen me wear here. It was such a fun night! I love hanging out with my fellow bloggers! I was nominated for two awards: Best Latin@ Lifestyle Blogger and Best Latin@ Social Networker. I did walk away with the best lifestyle blogger award. What an honor!! Really!! I’m truly blessed. Thank…

Celebrating Latina Magazine’s 15th Anniversary

I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 3 years now. It really seems just like yesterday. Back then, I would have never imagined to be where I am today. I’m not at all on blogger celebrity status. In fact, probably not even close. LOL. But, I do love what I do and what I get to experience. I consider myself very blessed. Last week,  I was invited to attend Latina Magazine’s 15th anniversary party by COVERGIRL. I’ve been reading this magazine since it was first published. So, this was very exciting for me. I kind of waited until the last…
