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
I cringe as I write this post. It’s 84 degrees in Los Angeles and just the thought of wearing one of these is making me sweat. But, it is officially fall now and I see the faux, leather, and pleather jackets hitting the racks. Do you have yours yet? Maybe one of these will make it into your closet! Read more
I don’t care that it’s hotter than *&%$#@^! outside, I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming holiday season! That means lots of parties and events. It’s time to start thinking about dresses! Instead of the basic LBD, why not try a LBLD? A Little Black Lace Dress. I just invented that by-the-way. Read more
This new 5 Questions features a beautiful plus-size model, Nicole Esperanza Zepeda. She’s such a sweetheart and I think you should get to know her a little. I saw her last in New York City representing on the runway at Full Figured Fashion Week. Read more
IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel has just released their pre-fall collection and it’s gorgeous! Inspired by exotic Indian design elements and sensuous ancient Greek draping, there are some great dresses I have my eye on.

If you’re a fan of plus size designer fashion, then you must know about Navabi. They’ve kind of been around the web recently. They created this awesome video which was taped during Berlin Fashion Week. It features the beautiful and confident Mariesther Venegas strutting her stuff around Berlin…in the buff! Read more
We all know that trends come and go…some faster than others. Sometimes quicker than we’d like. So, while I have your attention, here are a few trends I’m loving right now!
Ooooohhhh…do I have something special for you ladies! It’s a VIP SNEAK PEEK into Carmakoma’s AW 2012 collection!! If you’re anything like me and you love a classic clean look with an edgy and sexy twist, then this collection is for you. I’m DYING over the leather leggings! Seriously HOT! OK, you know I love something if I’m using all caps over here.
Carmakoma is a Danish label if you’re wondering, yes all the way from Copenhagen. I especially love them because they’re using my good friend Fluvia Lacerda in their recent campaigns.
“Carmakoma women are strong, independent individuals denying to be subject to the opinions of others. They are not afraid of experimenting with their personal form of expression, but are open to change and always heading towards new experiences – determined to control their own destiny.” -Carmakoma.com
This collection rocks with these amazing wrap skirts, polka dots and stripes, bold pieces, graphic prints, flowy pieces, and the leather leggings…oh the leather leggings! They also have outerwear and menswear-inspired pieces. I can see myself wearing pretty much everything here.
This collection should be available online and in-store in August and their sizes range from U.S. 12-24.
I want to know what you think!
Will Carmakoma be on your shopping wish list?
