I am in love with this ASOS Curve maxi dress. Isn’t the color amazing? Perfect for spring. If I owned this dress, this is probably how’d I’d style it. Three different looks, yet all very casual. That’s me…a casual kind of girl. From a chunky bracelet, clutch, and sandals-these are all pieces that can be found very easily. Most you probably already have them.
Cosmic Thread is bringing handmade geometric shaped jewelry to another level. I discovered them during MAGIC’s Pool Tradeshow and instantly was in awe. You might have seen these photos in a previous post. The designers are two sisters, Taryn and Megan, from Colorado. I really admire unique and creative jewelry like this.
The collection experiments with the fusion of synthetic and reclaimed organic materialsinto highly conceptual designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted with a forward thinking focus on the future,manifesting the inspiration of space into wearable geometry.
Looking at handbags online is not easy. I thought it would be, because it’s not like looking at them in a store. I was wrong…I want them all. And as you can see, I’m kind of in a stripe mood right now. I’ve seen people wearing them like crazy. But, I’d like to be a twist on it and go with a striped clutch or handbag.
What do you think? Are stripes for you?
Here are the rest of my photos from MAGIC, Project, and the Pool Tradeshow. Like I had said before, these spaces were so huge! There was such an array of clothes and accessories. Once again, we didn’t get to see everything.
MAGIC and Project were home to fashion brands, while the Pool Tradeshow was more of the indie designers and brands. It was amazing. Ivory (www.ivoryjinelle.blogspot.com) and I had a chance to chat with the ladies over at Nation LTD. They’re really passionate about their plus pieces that you can find at Nordstrom. That’s very inspiring! I also fell in love with the fringe handbags from Ember Skye at Project. I loved the colors!
And I died over the jewelry from Cosmic Thread and Designs by Alicia P. at the Pool Tradeshow. The jewelry was very unique! Loved it. I had such an amazing time and I can’t wait for my next WWDMAGIC visit!
Here are more photos from MAGIC’s FN Platform. I don’t think you ladies understand how many shoes there were! We didn’t even cover the entire thing. I know my feet would’ve of been dead at the end of that day!
I was most impressed with Betsey Johnson and Charles Whittington. Of course I always love a fun shoe like Betsey Johnson, but I was loving the double stiletto by Charles Whittington. Isn’t it cool? It’s trademarked people…so don’t try to steal it! Just love it!
Guess who overpacked for MAGIC? I told my hubby it was a good thing I wasn’t flying because I would have been paying for that extra weight. LOL! Have you ever done that? Overpacked, but hated almost everything in your suitcase? That was definitely me.
So, what does any girl do when they don’t like their clothes? Go shopping of course. I stopped by the outlets on my way to Las Vegas and bought this beautiful asymmetrical BCBG Max Azria sweater. Thanks for convincing me Ivory! LOL! She’s always right. I wore it on the first day of MAGIC. Later that night, we decided to dress up a bit to go out. I wore this purple off the shoulder sweater dress, with these BCBG Max Azria ankle boots I snatched up on Ideeli.com. Love that web site! I just might have a thing for BCBG!
On Valentine’s Day, I wanted to commemorate the holiday with this heart sweater from Forever 21. I know…I’m corny like that. I was missing my hubby. I wore it with a pair of black Mossimo skinny jeans from Target. They really stretched out by the end of the night. Be careful if you buy them. I’d go a size smaller.
Now it’s time for the fun part of traveling…unpacking. Ugh!

Curves and Chaos is officially 2! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging here this long. You have no idea how appreciative I am of each and every one of you that has visited and commented on my blog.
I look back over the past two years and I see how much I’ve changed. But, one thing has remained the same, my love for fashion, shopping, beauty, and all things curvy. My confidence has grown beyond measure and I thank you for that. I still and will always believe in loving yourself inside and out.
One thing I’m REALLY appreciative of is all of the amazing people I’ve met, the places I’ve been, and the events I’ve been invited to. Each and every opportunity has been amazing! And it’s all because of you!
And as a thank you…

Sunglasses + me = Love. I adore them and they are one of my favorite accessories. I was doing what I do best…online window shopping on a Saturday night and I ran across a few pairs that really caught my eye. And they all happened to be oversized. In a Jackie O kind of way of course. But, I was watching Scarface and Michelle Pfeiffer was rocking them too. Loved her style in that movie! Anyways, back to the sunglasses. I can already see myself wearing them this spring and summer with my favorite maxi dress. It’s time to find that perfect pair.
Do you see yourself wearing oversized sunglasses?
Anna Scholz…what are you doing to me? You’re so fabulous and these latest images from her Hippie Chick collection from Anna Scholz Black Label Spring/Summer 2012 only prove it. I’m dying over here! I’ve always loved her use of prints with a feminine touch. And this collection is a perfect example of that.
Hippie Chick is “down-to-earth girliness with a sophisticated twist.” I agree. You will find maxi dresses and tunics in colors and prints for almost everyone. I will admit I’ve only owned one of her maxi dresses, but it’s so amazingly…amazing…that I just might have to splurge and grab something from this latest collection. Take a look for yourselves…what do you think? I can’t decide which one I want…
Are you ready for spring? There are a lot of great trends coming our way. One trend that’s really caught my eye would have to be pastel colors. These colors are like a pale version of your favorite colors. Some people usually think of pink or yellow, but this one is a pale version of green. It’s mint and it’s one color that really stands out to me. I saw this amazing nail polish and a pair of heels the other day and I can’t get the color out of my head. I’m already trying to figure out what I’d wear with it. Oh great…now I’m craving mint chocolate chip ice cream. LOL!
