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!
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 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!
Listen up Los Angeles fashionistas! If you’re in love with Rachel Pally (which I know you are) you need to hit up her famous warehouse sale! Today was my third time attending one of her sales and it was awesome as always. Rachel was even on hand. She’ s super amazing by-the-way.
Believe me, you won’t find these prices anywhere else. It’s 55-85% OFF the retail prices and there are $25-$75 discount racks. And YES they have White Label (plus size collection). Seriously? Why aren’t you planning to head down already? Get down there! The sale runs through the weekend.
If you have any questions about her sale or collections, please leave them in the comment section below.
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 is all of the amazing people I’ve met, the places I’ve been, and the events I’ve been invited to. Each and every opportunity has been amazing! And it’s all because of you!
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.

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 you to EVERYONE who voted for me and helped me win! xoxo
Earlier in the day, I was invited to a very special Mary Kay Glam Suite held in the Vice Presidential Suite at the Intercontinental Hotel. I got my hair blown out and a “day look” makeover. And I even walked away with an awesome Mary Kay gift bag!! Thank you Mercedes from BeChicMag.com for the invite!

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 minute to buy my dress. I wanted a very simple LBD. I found this dress over at Torrid and paired it jewlery from Aldo and shoes from Torrid. My makeup is all COVERGIRL, especially the lipstick. It’s Ruby Slipper from the Queen Collection.
I just happened to get my make-up touched up by Artemis, the Beauty Editor of Plus Model Magazine. She’s super sweet and couldn’t believe this was our first time meeting in person. I even got to hang out with Cid from CidStyleFile.com. Love that chick!
I had an amazing night…check out a few pictures below.
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I did receive complimentary admission to this event and a gift bag. The above is my true and honest opinion.
