Wish List: Nordstrom

It’s that time again. I’m in love with these tops from Nordstrom. I know I won’t buy them because they aren’t in my budget at the moment. So, like I always do…I will admire from afar. Also known as e-window shopping.


Why Anthropologie?

Anthropologie…why? Why must you have the most beautiful accessories and shoes that I can’t afford? I think you’re purposely trying to torture me.



Curvy News: Simply Be

An Eye on Faith 21

Hey there!

I just got back from a weekend road trip, not a happy one, but I did get out of L.A. I had the chance to meet up with a lot of family that I haven’t seen in a long time. It was a pretty exhausting weekend. Let me tell you…I was very happy to be back home. I love me some City of Angels!! And just to update you, I am still on a budget…kinda. Lol. I did do some shopping last week. I spent my birthday gift cards…Sorry I didn’t do a post about the stuff I bought. But, I am in the mood to get a little shopping done at Forever 21. Here is what I have my eye on:

Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash

It was all about shopping, gift bags, complimentary spa services, and cocktails at the Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash! Held at the Peterson Automotive Museum here in Los Angeles, I had a chance to finally meet Cid from Cid’s Style File. FYI…she’s awesome!

I not only got a few freebies from sponsors like Chevy, Pixi, and Burke Williams, but I also picked up a Chillers T-Shirt for $10 and makeup from Pixi for only $5. I even got a free bra fitting from Frederick’s of Hollywood and a Buy One Get One Free coupon for one of their sexy bras.

With discounts up to 80%, there was clothing, jewelry, shoes, makeup, accessories, and handbags to choose from. There wasn’t much to choose from for us curvy chicks, but I think with a little urging maybe we can get a few plus-size designers out there for the next event. Maybe? I didn’t get to take the new Chevy Camaro for a spin either, but I did get to check it out and let me tell you, that is my next car for sure! It’s HOT!

If you are a self-proclaimed shopaholic then you need to get out to their next event. They hold them in L.A., San Francisco, New York, San Diego, and Las Vegas. Go here for dates.

Bargainista Finds II

Yes…this chick went on a little shopping excursion yesterday. I finally made it out to the “Bargainista” shopping center. You know…the one with Marshalls, Ross, Old Navy, and Nordstrom Rack. I didn’t make it to Nordstrom Rack…booooo!

This (left) is what I wore, but I think I look yuck…so I played with the pic a little bit. Anywhoodles…

I had been in the market for a simple black cross body handbag, but I didn’t want to pay too much for one. Considering I go through handbags like crazy. This Nine West bag is perfect and it was only $22!

The shoes were a steal…the peep toe Madden Girl’s were on clearance for $20 and the tan gladiator wedge was $14.99. I can’t wait to wear them!

I also picked up two tee’s on clearance at Old Navy. My work is never done!

This my friends…is what happens when I stay home bored with my cell phone. No, I’m not embarrassed of these pics. I am pretty embarrassed that this curvy butt is not sitting in a pub somewhere in L.A. on St. Patrick’s Day. This is me “au natural’ and ready to go to bed. I hope you had a better night than I did. I’m pooped. I spent all day with my mom shopping at thrift stores. I picked up a snakeskin clutch…but nothing else caught my eye. Oh well…they just opened a Ross at the Beverly Connection. Now I have an Old Navy, Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, and Ross all in one place. Bargainista heaven!
