The minute the weather starts to cool down here in Los Angeles I’m the happiest girl around. And that’s when I reach for my sweaters. OK…it’s not that cool here. But, it is light sweater weather at night. I knew this Evans Swan By Clements Ribeiro Colour Block Clover Cardigan would be perfect…and it was! Read more
It’s outfit time again and I’m sharing what I wore on my last night in Las Vegas. And I think I’ve found my new favorite pair of pants! That’s pretty exciting for me, because I don’t normally get excited about denim. Torrid’s new Ankle Zip Stiletto Jean in black is all I’ve been wearing lately. There’s something about a super skinny ankle length pant that I love. Read more
Las Vegas is one hot city…like really hot. And when I know I’m traveling to a city with warmer weather, I always make sure to pack a maxi dress. They’re easy to pack and easy to dress up and down. Very versatile. And thanks to Torrid, I was able to take this Blue and White Mitered Striped Maxi ($54.50) dress with me to Sin City. Read more
No I didn’t “win it big” in Las Vegas. I know that’s always the first question you’re asked when you go to Sin City. In fact, I think I spent $1 gambling. I’m not even kidding! LOL! I never win, so why continue to give them my money? I did have a chance dress up a bit. Read more
Imagine walking outside and feeling like you just walked into an oven. Yeah, that was pretty much my weekend in San Antonio. O.K…I may be exaggerating a tiny bit. Let’s just say it was hot and I didn’t want to fuss with my outfits. And that’s why I kept my look casual, but wanted to add some much needed color in my life. Read more
It seems like we’re not going to get a break from this summer heat wave! Seriously people, it’s hot! And when it’s hot like this, I wish I could run around naked, buuuuut I won’t. I will try to wear something light and cool though. This is exactly what I tried to do with yesterday’s outfit. Read more

The minute I saw this high waisted JIBRI skirt, I knew I had to have it! I think it’s probably the boldest piece of clothing I own. I love it and I feel amazingly sassy in it. I wore it during the finale night of Full Figure Fashion Week.
Now, if the skirt looks a little big, it’s because it is. I actually had it taken out at the waist and I think the measurements got a little mixed up, because when I tried it on, it was too big. With the help of the wonderful Elann Zelie, we pinned the inside, but it was still a little big. But, that’s OK, cause I felt amazing in it! The construction of the skirt is impeccable, but you already knew that. I paired it with a tank I picked up at Nordstrom and a pair of teal suede t-strap platforms from Steve Madden. I was really happy with the entire look!
I still can’t believe Full Figured Fashion Week is over…I’m going to start counting down the days until the next one! And I’m STILL posting photos! Unfortunately, I can’t post them all on this blog, so you can find them here on the Curves and Chaos Facebook fan page.
I did want to share what I wore on the night of the Indie Designer Showcase. Lovedrobe sent me this amazing dress by their new sister brand Koko by Koko. The White Patterned Grecian Dress (£38.00 at New Look), was glorious! It was definitely made for a woman with curves and I was in awe of the draping.I’m so impressed with the fit! You can dress this up or down for day or night. It’s so colorful! I wore my new Aldo suede wedges with it.
There’s just something about a maxi dress that makes me smile. See…look below…I’m smiling! LOL! Thank you to Torrid for sending me the Blush Slub Knit Ruffle Maxi Dress ($64). I adored it and I got tons of compliments on it. I was kind of bummed when I had to change later that day.
As you can see, it’s a really great length for me at 5’6 with flat sandals. I might even be able to get away with a wedge without it being too short. That’s one of my pet peeves. I’m a size 16 and this is a Size 1. If you look on the website, the ruffle (on the model) looks longer. Maybe it’s because I’m bigger up top than she is? The top was a little boobie-licious at some times, I had to keep picking it up. Besides that I loved this maxi and I can’t wait to wear it again!
