Sassy City Chicks L.A. Fashion Bash Event

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping. Just one of the reasons to go to the Sassy City Chicks event. My curvy gals and I were sooooo happy to see a plus size vendor on hand, Sassi Rebel! You can’t even imagine the excitement. Yesterday was my third time attending this event and I always leave with something. Last night I snatched up a yummy clutch and a shirt. Our Sassy Totes were awesome…as always.There are tons of accessories on hand, but we were still yearning for more plus vendors and shoes…we need shoes! I did get my spa on…believe me. I got…

LPLP by Linea Pelle at Target

One of my favorite handbag designers Linea Pelle has just debuted ‘LPLP by Linea Pelle’ at Target. Well, there goes my Target boycott (I was boycotting them because of their sad plus size department).Available in stores and Target.com, the line “introduces a new demographic to the Southern California “casual chic” lifestyle sensibility embodied by the brand, which currently celebrates its 25th anniversary.”Priced at $9.99-$34.99, the line includes handbags, belts, wallets and other small leather goods as well as some jewelry items. Looks like I have to pay my local Target a visit. Hopefully, they’ve fixed their plus size department.

Don’t even get me started about my days working at Nordstrom and my employee discount!So, I know a beautiful bag when I see one. And when I was flipping through the new issue of Redbook, I saw a bag that caught my eye (#5 below).When I found out it was a Big Buddha design, I wasn’t surprised. Their bags stand out to me, not just because of their design and craftsmanship, but because they are animal friendly and 100% vegan.I love…
