L.A. Love: Rachel Pally Warehouse Sale

It’s that time again Los Angeles! Yes, Rachel Pally is holding another warehouse sale. I don’t know how many times I have to tell you to get your shopping but over there. Where else will you get her designs for 55-85% off? NOWHERE!! I’ve been to three of these already and I always leave with something. It’s so awesome!! I’m going to try and make this one too. I might have to reschedule a few things, but its worth it. The items included in the sale are from the Rachel Pally and White Label lines. So, lots of options. I will pass on that when trying on the clothes, there is a communal fitting room. That means everyone in one room. If you go, please let me know. And if you have any questions about the sale…ask away. I’ll do my best to answer them.

Dates and times are on the flyer above.

$50 and Under: Espadrille Wedges

Now that spring is here, it’s time to start thinking sandals and wedges. I’m a big fan of wedges. Maybe because it’s not a flat, but it’s not a heel either. And there’s something about an Espadrille wedge that has me thinking spring dresses. Just look at all the style and colors. You have everything from nude to vibrant colors. I think I really need to go shopping. LOL! Since I’m in the mood to shop, I’ve decided to find you a few that are $50 and under. Which one is your favorite?

The Shopping Diaries: The Last Minute Shopping Continues…

There once was a time when I would plan ahead. It didn’t matter what it was. I actually despised waiting until the last minute to accomplish something, especially shopping. Today, I’m no longer that girl. I’m now that “I’ll wait until last minute to find what I need” shopper and I don’t like it.

There’s nothing worse than feeling rushed or forced to buy clothing or shoes. I don’t know why I do it to myself. Maybe I think I’ll make quicker decisions? And because I’ve been so indecisive lately when it comes to fashion, this may make sense. I’m such a mess when I shop.

When I was preparing for my trip to Nashville a few weeks ago, I was shopping for something to wear and bought two tops, that I didn’t even end up wearing. In fact, I returned a dress I bought last minute (of course) for another trip and used that credit to get those tops. I’ll probably end up returning them too. Ugh!

I was also on the hunt for cute shoes and didn’t find any. Oh the drama! LOL! OK, so the obvious answer would be…”don’t wait until the last minute to shop.” Duh...I know that. I just don’t know why I can’t get in that state of mind.

Help ladies! Anyone out there know what I’m talking about? How do you deal with it and do you have any advice on how I can work on fixing this?

Torrid’s Retro State of Mind

Torrid and I have been friends for a while now and I’ve noticed the trends come and go. One thing I’ve always loved about them is how they’ve always embraced the retro style. And all of the pieces above are perfect examples of that. I’m especially loving the dresses! Brands like Stop Staring and Queen of Heartz make chic pieces! Even the swimsuits are getting in on the action. Do you own any of their retro designs? Are you a retro kind of girl? 

Get “Dress”ed with Ashley Stewart

Hey ladies! When was the last time you took a second to shop for dresses at Ashley Stewart?

 I was just in there the other day and if I wasn’t in such a big hurry I definitely would’ve tried some of them on. I already own their navy blue 10-way dress, but I’m secretly coveting this red one below. I’m a sucker for a red dress. This is a reminder to wear this color more often. It’s such an eye catcher. Some of the dresses below are “web exclusives” and are on sale. Take a second to shop what’s new & hot at Ashley Stewart.

I don’t know about you but, this Christmas season definitely has me in a shopping mood. Am I the only one? LOL?

$25 and Under: Handbags

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, there’s no need to give up hope on great deals. I found you a few chic handbags all $25 and under. Now, you better hurry, because with some of these prices starting at $11.99 they are probably going to sell out fast if they haven’t already.

Standing Out with Plus Size Fix

Are you the kind of lady that likes to make a fashion statement? You know…someone that stands out in a crowd? I know a few brave ones. I unfortunately am not that brave. I’m usually the one who has wishes she had the the guts to step outside of my comfort zone, when it comes to fashion. If you read my blog, then you know I’ve said this many times before.

For example, last week I was browsing around the Plus Size Fix web site and found a few daring pieces. I instantly thought to myself…”Cute, but I could never pull that off.” Have you ever felt that way? I think almost everyone has had one of those moments.

Take a look at some of the “stand out” pieces below…which one would you rock?

Shop Forever 21 for Breast Cancer Awareness

As part of Curves and Chaos going “PINK” for Breast Cancer Awareness month, I’m going to featuring brands and events that benefit the cause.

I actually got the email from Forever 21 last week about their support for the fight against breast cancer.

They have a special Pink is Courage collection,  they will donate 10% of each item sold from that collection to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

I went in on Friday and bought the Strength French Terry Pullover $19.80. I can’t wait to wear it and show my support.

I love that they are offering these items in different sizes, especially in their plus collection. The entire Pink is Courage collection is priced $4.80-$29.80. I’m sad, I didn’t see that umbrella when I was in the store. Guess, I have to go back and get it.

What will you buy? 



Introducing REAL by MYHABIT, A New Shopping Experience

Everyone’s favorite “go to” shopping site, Amazon.com has created MYHABIT. It’s one of the latest “membership-only” fashion sale sites.

And they just recently launched REAL by MYHABIT. It’s a series of online sale events offering women, sizes 14-24, the best designer and contemporary brands at up to 60% off.

The sales will last up to 4 days, unless they sell out (which can happen!). Today’s sales include dresses from Taylor Dress, denim from CJ by Cookie Johnson (some of my favorites are already sold out), and Z from Zenobia.

I’m loving the red blazer by Z from Zenobia. It’s originally $1,350 and is now $269!!

What I love most, besides the great prices, is that the site offers instant membership, free four day shipping, free returns (US orders only), and a flate rate $15 for priority international shipping.

The site is cool too with it’s 360-degree video of the clothes. That comes in handy, when you’re curious to see how an item fits.

So, check out REAL by MYHABIT and let me know what you think.
