Faith 21 Sparkles!

Need an idea on how to make that all-black outfit pop? Add a little sparkle! Yes, can be more of an evening look, if you follow rules. But, you know we don’t! And besides, I think it’s a fun way to make your outfit stand out. All of these pieces are from Forever 21’s Faith 21 line. I’m already imagining these skirts with a pair of black opaque tights. I told you I have shopping on the brain! All I know is there’s nothing like a little sparkle to brighten up your day!

Say it Loud and Proud!

I saw this shirt at Torrid and I couldn’t help but love it! Of course you should love your boobies! You should love them so much you’d do anything to keep them! That means becoming knowledgeable when it comes to breast cancer awareness and loving your body. Yes, I do care. My aunt died from breast cancer and the odds are you probably know someone affected by it. Go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure web site now and learn more.

Target Petition: We Want Designer Fashion Too!

As a self-professed bargainista, I am proud to say I LOVE TARGET! I’m there every week. And every week I am jealous of their designer collaborations. Why? Because, as a curvy gal, I don’t get to wear them. My local Target has a small, but decent plus size section, but nothing compared to the straight size department. I have come to accept the fact that us “curvy” girls will never get to experience their designer collaborations. Wait! There might be a glimmer of hope. I received this email below from Marie The Curvy Fashionista: A few days ago, Patrice from…
