A Turquoise Summer

But, I had a 3-year-old’s Hello Kitty birthday party to go to. You can’t miss those!

The dress is no longer available on the web site, but I can tell you it’s a beautiful turquoise rayon…

Can I have a moment for a curvy/fat/chubby/plus sized fashion rant? These are my top 5 pet peeves when it comes to clothing made for women of my size.Please for the love of chubby thighs, can you figure out a way to make the inside of your pants/trousers more durable.

What’s missing?

The Ballet Flat {Luxe Edition}

Flats by Kate SpadeFlats by See by ChloeIt’s no secret that I love a good bargain, but sometimes I love the finer things in life. Like a designer shoe. OK…I always love designer shoes, but I have to be realistic sometimes and tell myself that they are NOT good for the wallet. Instead, I just look and wait until one day I’ll have a personal shoe shopping account. Today, I’m kind of in the mood for a designer ballet flat. Don’t you just love ballet flats?

Another 90’s Fashion Trend?

When I was a teen (showing my age LOL) acid wash was really popular.A few weeks ago, I went into a Forever 21 and saw a few pairs of acid wash jeans. You probably saw them.
