Can you believe 2014 is almost over? I can’t! When I think about the past year and what I’ve written for you, I think about why I started this blog. My intention was to help women like me who didn’t know where to find plus-size fashion. But, as the years have flown by, this blog has evolved into something else.
I’m happy to report that it’s finally starting to feel like sweater weather around here. You don’t even know how happy that makes me. I’m a huge fan of chilly weather. I know you East Coasters probably think I’m crazy, but when you live in L.A. it’s not something you’re used to. This gloomy day helped me realize that it’s time to stock up on cozy sweaters.
If you’re a fan of designer shopping sites, I think you’re going to love this sale. Even though they don’t carry plus sizes, Shopbop is one of my favorite sites for designer shoes, accessories, and handbags. And I know that sales don’t happen very often on this site. So, when they do have a sale, I have to take advantage of it—reasonably of course. For the next three days (October 14-16), you can enjoy Shopbop’s Friends and Family sale! That means 25% sitewide (with some brand exclusions).
Fall is here and I’m sad to say that my wardrobe is not ready. As much as I wanted summer to be over, this procrastinator hasn’t really done any fall shopping. I blame it on the warm L.A. weather. Now, that I know it’s fall, there are five plus-size tops I want to add to my closet.
When the news of plus models walking the runway during New York Fashion Week hit social media, it seemed like the internet exploded for a moment. Everyone had an opinion about it. Some good, some bad, and some right-on-point. The minute I read my friend Ivory’s Instagram status, underneath a photo of model Denise Bidot walking the Chromat runway, I couldn’t help but laugh and instantly agree with her.
Hey everyone! I’m Maya from Mayainthemoment.com! Monique asked me to guest post this week and of course I had to say YES! Since I’m a fashion “n00b”, I consider myself a “lazy girl,” which is basically someone who is low maintenance when it comes to all things fashion. This summer I went through an experience that pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to dress up! Check out that story in the video below along with my own fashion tips for lazy girls!
Disclosure: This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and the TuVida App.
When it comes to Latinos in fashion, you can’t help but think of designers like Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, or even Isabel Toledo. They may be the biggest names in fashion today, but do you ever think about how they got their start? This is why I love events like Latino Fashion Week (LFW). They are created to introduce us to emerging and talented Latino designers. Fresh off their Dallas show, LFW came to Los Angeles! I was invited on behalf of the new Tu Vida app, to check out and share my experience.
