Memorial Day Weekend Sales & Shopping Codes!!

Attack of the Retro Sunglasses

If you must know…I love wearing sunglasses. Always have and always will. I don’t know where it started. But, I do know they not only offer style benefits, they also offer protection for your eyes. You will hear me say that over and over and over. And with all of the current trends from the 80’s and 90’s, you had to know that the sunglasses were going to get in on it. I saw a few of these retro styles at Torrid the other day and couldn’t help but try them on. Unfortunately, they didn’t really fit the shape of my face. That sucks! All I can do is look at you enjoy these retro style sunglasses. No fair.

Will you be rocking retro sunglasses this summer? 

City Chic’s Easter Sale

The word SALE is like music to my ears. And I’ve been very impressed with City Chic’s clothes lately. I even have a few reviews coming soon.

But, for now, go to! Everything is 30% OFF (excluding already on sale items). Hmmm….so what do I want. Easter decisions are soooo hard to make.

*Sale ends at midnight on April 26.

Ideeli is “Plus Size Perfection”

Aren’t we in love with members-only (a.k.a flash) shopping sites? I know I am! And I definitely love the fact that a lot of them are finally catching on-curvy ladies love shopping too. Ideeli is one that caught on in 2010 and now they are regularly featuring special sizes. Yay!

The sales kick off every Wednesday at noon and feature designers like Adrianna Papell, Calvin Klein, Seven7, Antik, and more. They not only offer plus sizes, but they also offer petite sizes. Ideeli claims petite sizes are more underrepresented than plus! That’s crazy! The fashion industry can’t seriously believe on tall and thin women like fashion. I’m not even going to get started (LOL).

To shop Ideeli’s great amazing deals you need an invite…Of course I have one for you!! Join today, it’s FREE! Click on the link below.

Do you need a personalized shoe shopper?

Buying that perfect pair of shoes can be a little stressful. When do you have time to shop? Are you always working or busy? Besides, how do you know what the hottest trend will be?

If any of this sounds like you, then maybe using an online personalized shoe shopper will help. Interested? I’ve found a few companies below that might help.

Basically, you tell them what your personal style is, pay a monthly fee, and they send you shoes based on your style. Keep in mind each company is a little different and the monthly fees vary. I’ve been interested in joining, but I’m a “gotta try on every shoe” kinda girl.

Have you used any of these companies below? Would you recommend them to your fellow shoe lovers?

ASOS Wish List

It simply is not fair. Why does the ASOS Curve line continue to tempt me? Their clothes are right up my alley; simply chic.

And why don’t they just hurry up and open a store in Los Angeles already? I know I sound like a broken record, but I…I mean “We” need them out here.

Not only are they killing me with the pieces below, but the the colors are calling my name. Sigh…

Being on a budget sucks! I can’t wait until these bad boys go on clearance. Here’s to wishful thinking…

Plus Size Shopping iPhone/iPad Apps

It’s no secret that the iPhone and the iPad have revolutionized our  little world. Getting information on the go and in the palm of your hand is more convenient than ever.

I do own an iPad and I will admit I’m kinda obsessed with the apps (a.k.a. applications). You know the saying…”There’s an app for that!” Well is there?

Not exactly. We all know I’m a shopaholic and I’d love to do some shopping from my iPad. Sadly, there are only a few options for the “curvy” lady.

I found a few free iPhone and iPad shopping apps that offer plus sizes.

Of course there are tons of fashion apps out there like, but only two of the shopping apps are by plus size retailers. It doesn’t make sense to me. I really hope to see more in the future.  So, listen up plus size retailers…get your iPhone or iPad apps going. You’d make this curvy girl very happy!

What’s your favorite shopping app?

Old Navy & the Wool Coat

Although it’s currently 87 degrees here in Los Angeles, I am still in search of a winter coat. I’m still waiting for Mother Nature to tell the City of Angels to turn this heat down. I yearn for the cold weather…yes…I used the word “yearn.” Well, I do!

Old Navy has these amazing Wool-blend coats, all on sale by the way. They range in price from $29-$79.50 and in sizes up to XXL or 4X. I think I love the first one, it’s the Women’s Double Breasted coat in brown or black. I’d take both.Which one is your fave?

You’ve heard it a million times…yes, fall is right around the corner. But, what a better time than now to get those sweaters and cardigans under $10! I think this is one of my favorite bargainista finds for the upcoming season. Hurry up, before they sell out! (P.S. if you click on an item and it doesn’t come up, that means it’s sold out)
