City Chic’s Latest Blogger Lookbook

City Chic’s 2nd Blogger Lookbook is finally here. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a second to click on over and check it out. It features 12 bloggers wearing pieces from the Australian retailer. I’m wearing the Lava Zip Back Top and Leatherette Biker Jacket. The top is on sale now, so go and grab it. I get tons of compliments on it. Great colors! I love the jacket too, but it’s been a little too warm here in L.A. to wear it as often as I’d like. I know I’m going to get a lot of wear out…

Curvy Girls on T.V.

This last year in the “plus-size” fashion world has been crazy. We’ve been getting the most coverage I’ve ever seen. Even so, mainstream America still has no idea about what this world is like. Yes, there was the cable mini-series Big Sexy on TLC. It definitely caused a stir. But that’s it…or is it? Tonight, Curvy Girls premiered on NuvoTV. The new show features models Denise Bidot, Lorna Litz, Rosie Mercado, and Victoria Castillo. Curvy Girls provides an all-access pass inside the glamorous world of professional modeling by shining the spotlight on four working plus-size Latina models whose passion and pride fuel their…

Rafaella’s Spring 2012 Preview

With the passing of NYFW and now in the midst of LAFW, there’s tons of spring previews going around. Including this 2012 look at Rafaella’s spring line. I was invited to this preview in New York City, but being that I live in Los Angeles, I couldn’t attend. Boo! I was sent these amazing photos, so I can share with you. As you can see, the line is filled with brights, whites, and neutrals. You’ll also see a lot of pattern mixing with stripes, chevrons, animal prints, and polka dots. There’s even some color blocking. You can find these pieces,…

Beauty Buzz: Napoleon Perdis Bronze Patrol & Auto Pilot

Fresh off their win for best blush and best primer from BeautyHeaven.com’s Glosscars Beauty Awards, Napoleon Perdis’ Bronze Patrol and Auto Pilot have definitely made an impression in these neck of the woods. The first thing I noticed about Bronze Patrol ($50) was it’s swirled baked powder. It shimmers with gold flecks and leaves an amazing sun-kissed look. All you need is one sweep of this paraben free bronzer. And I found out it’s enriched with Vitamin’s A and C. Now, the Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer ($39) deserves it’s award too. lt’s a very gentle, but effective primer. Just put it on…

Style Trend: Pleats

What do we know about pleats? We know it’s defined as a “type of fold formed by doubling fabric back upon itself and securing it in place.” But, did you know there are 11 types of pleats? I didn’t either! All I do know, is that when I went shopping the other day, I saw a lot of pleated pieces. Oh, and I’m not a big fan of ironing pleats. Too tedious! But, I do love the way they look. I’m kind of eyeing the burgundy Evans pleated maxi skirt (#11). So, what do you think? Are pleats the way…
