Take a deep breath…New York Fashion Week is finally over. I didn’t have the time, money, or energy to make it out there. But, I did keep up via one of my fave fashion sites Style.com. And although plus sizes were not represented on the runway, that doesn’t mean we can’t take inspiration from them…right? Read more

”Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.” -Bill Cunningham
If there’s one thing I’m passionate about it’s living life and doing what you love. Today, I watched a documentary based on New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham and I witnessed a passion unlike any other. And it’s not even just for fashion. His love of life and doing what you love is inspiring.
Bill Cunningham New York, follows and chronicles the life of one of the most validated and beloved fashion/street style photographers of our time. Today’s ‘wanna be” street style photographers don’t compare to Bill. I don’t think you even need to love fashion to appreciate the message of this film and his philosophy on fashion.
Have you seen Bill Cunningham New York yet? What did you think?
Ever since the television hit Mad Men came on the air, I’ve been eyeing all 1950′s fashion. Even Banana Republic has introduced a Mad Men inspired line. For a second, I’ll imagine I’m Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris.
I really want a dress now! And I can’t buy from Banana Republic, because they don’t carry my size. Then I remembered Dorothy Perkins carried a lot of 50′s style dresses and they have sizes up to a US 18.
Don’t you just love how the silhouette defines the waist and that flared skirt? Great for showing off those curves! They remind me of I Love Lucy! Ok, These dresses might be shorter than the average lengths of dresses back then. Regardless, I’m still “madly” in love!
What do you think about 1950′s inspired dresses?
Before I head out shopping, I need a little inspiration. That means…shoooooooes! Yay! I am on the hunt for a pair of black shoes for New Year’s Eve. Aren’t the first pair, Steve Madden’s btw, divine? Love them! Is there anything you like here?
You know I find inspiration everywhere don’t you? Even if that means on the red carpet at the Sydney, Australia premiere of Love and Other Drugs. Doesn’t Anne Hathaway, look stunning in this gold Oscar de la Renta mini? It’s from his Spring 2011 collection and if anyone can find me a plus sized knock off, I would love them FOREVER!
Last night Cid from Cid’s Style File and I were talking about where our inspiration to blog comes from. Personally, I’m inspired by everything around me. In fact, this post is inspired by this Dolce Vita image. They sent me an email about a sale and this Tammy Printed Sweater ($220) caught my eye. How could it not? I want this sweater, but my bargainista instincts say NO! When this happens, I look for substitutions. And f course ASOS Curve has this Pattern Wrap Blanket Cardigan ($74.21) that I want. Just another reason to love them!
It’s no secret that I love accessories. And when I go shopping, I have to check out what the latest jewelry trend is. The other day I went to the Grove, here in L.A., and couldn’t help but notice feather jewelry every where. Not peacock feathers, but bird feathers. I love that kind of post inspiration. Here you again my lovely bloggers…more inspiration and of course dumb ol’ shopping temptation. My apologies to your bank account.
P.S. Love that hat!!
I just wanted to take a second and say thank you to the fearless and confident women out there, who don’t care what society thinks of their size.The models who started it all.
Those who could care less if you call them curvy, thick, chubby, fat, or plus-size; but rather see it as a compliment.
The women who know that the inside is just as important as the outside.
You who celebrate the beauty of your body every day.
You inspire me.
