It’s Saturday night and I’m sitting here watching The Bad Girls Club. I’m feeling all feisty right now! Lol. If you live in L.A. and listen to KDay…only one of the best radio stations EVER, then you’ve heard that dumb Lap Band commercial. I can’t stand it!! It goes a little something like this…
Guy:”Wow Bridget, you look so skinny! I can’t believe you ever weighed that much weight!”
Girl: “Oh thank you! See these two gallon jugs of water I’m holding? That’s how much weight I lost!”
Guy: “What is your favorite thing to do now that you’re skinny?”
Girl: “I get to go shopping at all the fun stores!”
Come on!!! Are you kidding me? I despise that commercial. Too bad all of us non-skinny people don’t get to shop at fun stores! Ugggghhh!! Kiss my BIG OL’ BOOTY Lab Band! You bite!
Thank you. I’m done.
What’s the difference between coral and orange you say? Coral has a touch of pink or red hue. Let’s not worry about that…let’s just enjoy this vibrant color in our spring wardrobes. There’s nothing like a splash of color to wake up the fashion senses.
I’ve had my eye on #3 for about two weeks now. I think I’m going to go and grab it before it’s gone. And don’t get me started on #5!! Love love love coral.
My golden rule: Don’t let bright colors frighten you! Even if it’s a pair of shoes or a rockin’ handbag, wear it proud!
I have just found my new indulgence…are you ready for this? Vogue Curvy!!! Featuring all “curvy” models, this web site was launched by Vogue Italia and couldn’t be more fantabulous! Of course you will see faces like Crystal Renn and Lizzie Miller…gorgeous. You know what? Just take a look at it. My description won’t do it justice. Enjoy!
If there is one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love the rain. Yes, a “California Girl” loves the gray and cold weather. That’s why I was super happy to hear rain in today’s forecast. It gives me a reason to dress cozy and comfy. Good thing I was comfy, I had a doctor appointment and a few errands to run. Leggings, a roomy top, and my Uggs have become my new jeans and t-shirt alternative. Oh…btw… I love my Uggs!! I am not going to lie, I used to think they were ugly. I know! That was until I planted these bad boys on my feet. Now, I’m in Ugg heaven.
Repeat after me…”Prints are my friend.” Don’t be afraid of this daring spring trend. Geometric, tribal, and ikat are definitely the eye-attracting prints to wear this spring. If you’re not into the much loved floral print, then this may be for you.
Any of the tops can be worn with a simple solid color legging or even a skinny jean. I have my eye on #2 and #11. I love the idea of a chic long layered necklace as an accessory. Or even a solid color skinny belt can add definition.
My golden rule: Try not to wear more than one style of print, no combining here! The print is already your bold statement piece.

The negatives of plus-size
The Daily Iowan
We are in the midst of the hottest time in fashion. February begins the Fashion Week parade that jumps from New York to London to Paris, complete with the walking pieces of art that will hit (mostly elite) stores in the spring. Implicit in your thoughts on couture designers and bright runways are the models. While the exact shape of the model changes to express the zeitgeist of the decade, the actual size has basically stayed the same. This year, however, more than one designer has chosen to include the generally dreaded (in the fashion world at least) plus-size model. Rumors abound from London and New York about the opposition to this new inclusion.
So what is all the hubbub about? Despite my very secure self-identification as a feminist, I find myself a bit out of sorts where this topic is involved. While I oppose the idea of size-0 models as the only representation of the female form on the runway, I don’t think I am a fan of the size-12 models either.
There were angels, butterflies, flowers, bows, and sparrows. Every season, a new print explodes into our wardrobes.
This season, you can’t walk into your favorite boutique without trying on at least one item with the peacock design. It’s everywhere.
The question is…are you buying it?
Welcome to the Curves and Chaos jungle! This safari spring trend is for the fashionista woman warrior.
Colors like camel, khaki, and Army green can be incorporated into any wardrobe. A simple white tee, tank, or blouse is key for bottoms. Tops go great with jeans.
Don’t forget your accessories either. Canvas bags and wood adorned jewelry add an edge to any outfit. I can’t forget the basketweave-inspired shoe. It’s definitely on my shopping list…along with #5.
My golden rule: Be confident in whatever you wear. Remember, it’s an urban jungle out there!
