NYC Here I Come!


I'm  going

I am super excited to announce that I will be attending the BlogHer 2010 Conference as a volunteer! This has made my year! Just to get the opportunity to see some of the faces behind all of these amazing blogs is an honor.

I am still trying to figure out the financial aspect of actually getting there, but if there is a will…there is a way. Right?

If any of you know of a company that would like to sponsor me or if you are a company that would like to sponsor me, please contact me.

Thanks!!

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?


Etsy Find: NewExtrave Fashion

Have you ever dared to buy “one size fits all” clothing? I am seriously thinking about it after seeing these pieces by NewExtrave on Etsy. They not only look comfy, but they look perfect for the summer. Most items are made from linen or cotton, which is super cool in my book. Some can even be custom made. They have tons of great reviews too. Would you try a “one size fits all dress?” If you’ve ever purchased anything from NewExtrave, please let me know.

90’s Trend Comeback?

Raise your hand if you loved the 90’s! Come on! Am I showing my age here? Anyone? Well, Elle Magazine’s July 2010 issue is claiming yet another 90’s grunge comeback. Are you going to pull out your flannels? Combat boots? Floral prints? Shredded jeans? Wait…do I hear crickets? All the decades are cool, but the 90’s were one of my faves. I don’t know about you, but I like it!

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

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
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?
