Color Inspired: Purple

I’ve been in such a “purple” kind of mood lately. It’s not a color I normally wear, but I’m starting to step out of my color “comfort zone.” I’ve always been afraid to look like Barney or something. What was I thinking? I would have to dress head-to-toe in this color to look like this pre-schooler’s idol. But, now I know I can add a splash of color without getting out of control.

What color(s) have you been hesitant about wearing? Do you wear them now?

New York City: Part II

Guess what lucky duckies? I found a few more pics from New York City. Ok, they aren’t the best quality, but it’s all I have. And I really want to encourage you all to head out to San Diego for next year’s BlogHer conference.

The first pic is an outfit I wore to do some running around in. I found this great dress at Target, but it was a little too short for me, so I threw on some leggings. It was so hot and humid this day, but the dress kept me cool and the AC in the taxi helped a lot! It’s an easy piece to dress up too. I couldn’t find it on the Target site, sorry.

I made my way downtown to get a peek at some of the pieces from the Toula Fall collection. This is a luxury knit line being carried at Saks Fifth Avenue and Dillards, in women’s sizes. Now, this line is for the sophisticated business woman, but there were pieces that gave off a vintage vibe. I could easily pair them with jeans and a tank. They are pricey pieces, but are very versatile and can be worn from season to season. Made for the uptown curvy woman!

The publicity firm was right next door to an Urban Outfitters. I felt so sorry for the people that worked there. The AC was only working on the 3rd floor, this left those on the other floors baking! I picked up a pair of sunglasses ($10) and hopped on the subway to Midtown. First time by myself! So proud!

The next day I made my way to expo. Below are pics of my favorite highlights. The ECCO suite had their fall line ready and waiting for me (wink wink). Those suede pumps and ankle boots are mine! Timex had me with their fluorescent watches and Ebay/Bill Me Later had me drooling over a vintage lion cuff and that Rebecca Minkoff clutch. I even had a talk with White House Black Market about them carrying extended sizes. But, for now, they only carry their wedding dresses up to a size 16. Too bad.

There are more pics in the previous post, in case you didn’t see them.

Yes…Another Update

It’s almost August and here I am, fresh out of the pool——>

Wait a second…I will be in NYC in 5 days! I can’t believe how fast all of this is happening. If you would have asked me a month ago if I was going to attend the BlogHer conference…I would’ve said no. Now, not only am I attending, but I’m a volunteer. So super duper excited to meet bloggers from all over the United States and learn from them. I am very grateful for this experience.

I will be tweeting, vlogging, and blogging about my trip. From outfit posts (including an outfit courtesy of Lane Bryant) to even a giveaway, I’ll be working my blogging butt off while I’m out loving the East Coast.

Yes, I’m a West Coast chica, but I can like other coasts too! BTW…where are my New York ladies? I’d love to hang out. Contact me if you’re interested.

Changing Subjects: Cid and I very excited about Saturday’s L.A. Fatshion Bloggers Shopping Event! Go Here for all of the details! Can’t wait to meet you!!

Colored Inspired: Red

There is just something about the color red that screams “Look at me!” It’s such a hot color and I love it! Maybe it’s the red Camaro my mom drove when I was little, but it has always been my favorite color. I was at the mall yesterday and everything red caught my eye. Especially the shoes! And then I looked in my closet and realized I don’t even have any red pieces! I need to get my hands on something red.

No Wire Bras!

I am on a mission! A mission to find a soft cup/wire free bra that will support these puppies! Underwire bras have been bugging me lately! But, I don’t want just any bra. Once I get back from NYC, there’s going to be some serious bra shopping going on. I found a few below that I thought might work for me, in certain clothing and life situations. Are you a wire free lady? What brands do you love?

Wish List: Love Ady via Bloomingdales

I love when I come across a plus-size line that I’ve never heard of. Like today, I was browsing Bloomindales.com and I saw this really cute line named “Love Ady.” I know…I’m so late on these things sometimes. I fell head-over-heels, for these pieces. And they’re on sale here!

So, please spill the beans! I want to know more about this line-quality and fit please. I couldn’t find a web site or anything.


Shoes…I want you.

Whenever I go shopping and I see a tank or blouse I really like, I try to buy it in a few different colors. I don’t know how that started but, it’s just something I do. Does anyone else do that? Anyways, I’ve never done that with a pair of shoes. Never. But, today I flipped through the latest Alloy catalog and I found my first pair of shoes I would consider buying in all colors available.

The Parker Wedge ($32.90)has caught my wandering eye…great…another shoe to fall in love with. There is a problem, I’ve never purchased shoes from Alloy and I am concerned of the fit. Have any of you ever purchased shoes from them? I need to know how they fit and what their quality is like before I buy them.

Beauty Obsession

I know this might sound weird but, I haven’t purchased a bottle of perfume in years. I usually wear those body sprays from Bath & Body Works. I kinda had these sinus allergies and perfumes really agitated my nose. But, that was until I smelled this glorious and amazing scent from Michael Kors. I know I’m late. But, I am sooooo obsessed with this fragrance. Sometimes, I don’t want to spray it because I’m afraid of not having it anymore. Is that weird? LOL. What’s your favorite fragrance?
