Bloomingdale’s Press Preview (OOTD)

I love a good store opening. What I like even better is getting a sneak peek before it opens to the public. That’s what I did last week when I was invited to a press preview for the 37th Bloomingdale’s store to open in the United States. It officially opened on Friday, November 8 in the city of Glendale, California (Los Angeles area). Read more

10 Favorites: Torrid

It’s time for another one of my 10 Favorites posts. And this time it’s kind of a “fall must-have” kind of list from Torrid. There picks would be perfect for a range of looks. And that’s always what I look for—pieces I can wear more than once. I can’t believe I actually chose some camo print…being that I spent a few years in the military and I normally don’t wear it.  Read more

Thrifter’s Delight at Savers Thrift Stores

Have I ever told you how much I love thrifting? I really do! I grew up shopping thrift stores. My mom even worked at one. She used to bring home the greatest stuff. I guess you can say it’s in my blood. It’s just unfortunate that most stores make finding plus sizes really hard. I had almost given up hope, until I visited Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas!

Style Trend: Black and White Stripes

I’m seeing stripes…again. Black and white stripes have definitely made another comeback. I love when fashion trends do that. Just when you think it’s dead, it comes back with a vengeance. OK, maybe not a vengeance, but it’s every where! Read more

10 Favorites: Summer Dresses

Yesterday, I spent the entire afternoon in the scorching hot L.A. sun. I remember sitting there thinking how flipping hot it was. And how much I wished I was wearing a cool dress. Yup, summer is in full swing and all I want to do is wear summer dresses. Well…10 dresses to be exact. Read more

“Perfect” Weekend with City Chic and Sonsi (OOTD)

There’s that moment, when you put on an article of clothing and it just feels like it was made for you. It’s one of those “perfect fit” experiences. What’s even better is when you don’t think it will look good on you, then when you’re wearing it all of that just goes away. Sonsi, your “go to” online plus size fashion shop, sent me a few items from their (awesome) City Chic boutique and it was all I needed to make my weekend. Read more

Shop Your Heart Out at 10DollarMall.com

I consider myself an equal opportunity shopper. If it’s an item I like, it doesn’t matter where it comes from. And believe me I will shop high and low for something I like. Did I forget to mention I also love a deal? Yes I do! Well…hello there 10DollarMall.com…where “Everything is $10 or Less!”  Read more

Are Your Malls Plus Size Friendly?

I live in Los Angeles, the land of curves, but apparently lack of curvy love. Months ago, I (accidentally) discovered that the Forever 21 located in the Beverly Center carried plus sizes. I was surprised, I mean it is Beverly Hills. And I think the only other store in that mall that carries plus sizes is Macy’s and possibly Ann Taylor (they go up to an 18). Read more

Cold Feet Love Winter Boots

As I sit here writing this my toes are cold. Brrrrrrr…I do love the winter, but I can’t stand when little guys are chilly! This really is something I think about when I’m out buying ladies shoes during the colder months. I know I live in L.A., but I do a lot of traveling where the temperatures tend to drop. We’re only a week into winter and I only own one pair of winter boots…that’s definitely going to have to change!
