Vintage Fashion Rewind: Stripes

Fashion…you are amazing. There are so many reasons, but we don’t have all day now do we? No, we don’t. So, let me just say that I love the fact that certain prints and styles are still hot today as they were back then. Oh…do you need an example? How about the use of stripes? They’re definitely a year-round trend and have been since the beginning of fashion.

These fashion photos, featuring stripes, were found over at MyVintageVogue.com. They are dated from the 1940′s to the 1960′s. I love the classic and feminine touches. Gorgeous!

Fashion Find: Missphit

Some days I just want to curse my internet researching skills, they get my wallet in so much trouble! For example, today I was searching for something totally random and I ran across this hot little fashion line.

It’s called Missphit, and I want to try their clothes soooooo bad. Look at these cute pieces!! I’m curious about the quality and fit of their clothes.

Do you own any Missphit pieces?

Huh? What?

Today’s topic is “What?” Yes, the entire phrase “What?” is on the table today.

I have heard many things in my day. Good things, bad things, and questionable things. But have you ever overheard someone say something about you and you just can’t help but say “What?”

I had that moment and I can’t believe I almost forgot to tell you about it!

So, there I was walking out of the medical center into the parking lot. There were two older men walking about 20 feet behind me. I know they were older because they probably couldn’t hear very well, hence their loud

“quiet” voice.

Older dude #1: “You see that girl right there?”
Older dude #2: “Yeah?”
Older dude #1: “She got a cute face, but she’s kinda chubby.”

WHAT? Did I just hear them say that about me? I hope that wasn’t about me…was my first thought. But, I looked around and there weren’t any other women around. So, I assume they were referring to me.

That comment left me in kind of a weird place. I don’t mind the chubby part, because I am. But, do I feel good about being cute or do I feel confused because they only think my face is cute? Besides, I don’t do very well with compliments. I guess they do boost the good ol’ self esteem sometimes, but I don’t know how to take this one. The dudes were kinda creepy too.

Moral of the story…keep your “What?” comments to yourself or at least wait until you’re in the car to say them out loud. You’ll just leave me confused.

What’s your favorite or worst “What?” comment you’ve ever heard?

Ouch! Bridesmaid Shoes Suck!

Guess what? I love weddings! Sad thing is, I haven’t been to one since mine…3 years ago! I was so honored to be a bridesmaid at my cousin’s garden wedding this past Saturday. It was a beautiful L.A. day and the bride was gorgeous! Love was beaming from their faces!! Oh, and for those who voiced their opinion on my hairstyle, I chose #6! There was only one thing that sucked? Our shoes! They are by Chinese Laundry and were made in satin. But, the style below is very similar.



I thought they were so cute too! But as I put them on, I wondered if the tiny (almost) 4-inch heels would hold this curvy chick up. They did, but not even 30 minutes after wearing them my feet started to hurt. Even during the ceremony I was having issues. My feet were slipping out of them. And for the past two days my calf muscles have been sore! I guess I’m not trained to wear (almost) 4-inch heels. That’s OK. But, if I had a choice, I would have chosen any of the ones below. I think these would make AMAZING bridesmaid shoes!!

ASOS on the brain.

I am so in LOVE with ASOS Curve lately. They are definitely stepping it up in this game. Everyone and their mom has been blogging their favorite picks lately.

Here are my current faves…I am dying over the black and white dress. Gorgeous!!

Hey there curvaliscious ladies! I can’t believe it’s already June and summer is peeking around the corner. Wow! Spring just flew right by, without a care in the world.

Not only is time flying, but there has been a ton of blogging ‘controversy’ going on. I’m not even going to elaborate on it, it’s sooooo not worth it. Drama will happen and maybe that’s a good thing. It gets it all out in the open and we all get a chance to learn from it and move on. As long as we are respectful when giving our opinions, I think the world will continue to turn. Done.

I don’t know about you but this summer has already gotten off to a great start! I’ve traveled around a bit and my cousins wedding is almost here. I can’t wait! There are birthdays and graduations to celebrate too! Maybe I’ll even squeeze in another weekend trip with the hubby. He deserves it! His birthday is tomorrow and I’ve been racking my brain on what to do. But, he claims over and over that he doesn’t want to do anything. Men…

Shopping, now that’s something I understand. I’ve found a lot of great deals recently. I’m a bargainista and proud of it! Lately, I’ve been on a mission to find workable pieces at super affordable prices. But, I do admit, I have a lot of clothes in my closet I’m not wearing. I’m going to have to start pulling some of those out. That means more OOTD’s! Yay! I just wish I had a crafty photographer at hand like some of you do. I guess the self-portraits will do!

So, I’ve covered the basics: summer, drama, shopping, and men. But, I left the best for last…YOU! I know I do this all the time, but I can’t help but say THANK YOU to all of you who visit my blog, comment, and are just an inspiration to me. There are so many wonderful, creative, gorgeous, and amazing bloggers out there! I am so very lucky to have met you and I hope to continue to form friendships! I know this may sound corny, but it’s my blog and I can do that!

{Oh..btw…thank you for all the blog awards! You’re all too cute, I’m just really really bad at re-posting them. Sorry.}

I hope to have many more amazing giveaways for you all! Thanks for reading!

Stay curvaliscious, confident, and courageous!

Wish List: Maurices


It’s official…I’ve been shopping a little more than I should be. Ugh! I really need to reach into my closet and wear the clothes I already have.

Maybe it’s an addiction…maybe it’s not. Who knows? But, I do know I love these items from Maurices!

I promise I won’t buy. I can look can’t I?

Rest, Relaxation, and Simply Be

If I didn’t love the city of L.A. so much…I think I would move down to San Diego. We had a great bachelorette weekend. Nothing crazy…just rest and relaxation. I had the most amazing massage! I can’t stop thinking about it. It was a little overcast on the beach, but it didn’t stop us from having fun.

I was very excited for this weekend! And do you know what made it a million times better? Maybe it had something to do with the package from Simply Be I received the day we left!! What a great time to try out new clothes!! I wore the Denim Halter Maxi Dress on Saturday and the Anna Scholz Print Maxi Dress on Sunday. I am so impressed with the quality and material of the dresses.

The denim dress is very durable and of course I was cool all day. The Anna Scholz dress has the best details, especially on the neckline. Both dresses could have been a little bit longer, but other than that they were very comfortable! My #1 requirement. I know I’m going to wear these maxi dresses out this summer!

I highly recommend checking Simply Be out! And for us US based fashionistas you’ll get to try them out as soon as this July.
