Oh…swimsuit anxiety. You’re an evil one. Even the most confident women (ahem) get that uneasy feeling when they think of summer and the fact that swimsuit season is practically here. There’s just something that goes off in your head when you know you’re about to parade around others half naked in the bright summer sun. OK, that’s just how it goes in my head. Read more

I talk to my mom on the phone almost every day. I can honestly say, each conversation takes on a life of it’s own. We don’t always agree on things and we will sometimes butt heads. I love her beyond words, but man we are so much alike it’s scary. It seems like every time I open my mouth, I say something and I sound just like her. In fact, I think I might actually be turning into her.  Read more

When I was asked to partner with Shopbop.com a few years ago, I immediately said yes! Now, I know they don’t carry plus sizes, but they do carry some of the hottest designer shoes and accessories for men and women. And they’re always on trend—if that’s your kind of thing.

An Afternoon with Maurices

When I first started this blog in 2008, I remember searching online for plus size brands to feature or shop from. That’s when I found Maurices, a fashion retailer specializing in women’s fashion in a range of sizes. Back then, they had a very small plus size collection. Today, they offer so many more options, including activewear and swimwear. They recently invited me to attend a spring event they were hosting in Downtown L.A., of course I had to go! Read more

IGIGI’s Modern Romance Lookbook

There’s just something about feminine and flirty looks that were made for someone like me. And I feel like IGIGI really has it down. As you’ll see in their latest lookbook “Modern Romance.” As soon I saw some of these pieces, I was ready to take a stroll across the Golden Gate bridge with my hubby. Doesn’t it just look amazing? Here are a few of my favorite photos, with my eye on the jumpsuit. Read more

Inside the Mind of a Last Minute Shopper

A few years ago, I wrote about being a last minute shopper. It turns out, I’m still that person. I literally wait until the day of an event or an occasion to run to the mall to get an outfit together. As you can guess, it’s very exhausting! I envy those who plan outfits weeks or days in advance!

Pointed Pump Perfection

The minute my brain even thinks of spring, I just want to wear nothing but pointed pumps. Even though half the time they aren’t the most comfortable style of shoe for my feet. I still love them besides the fact. They go with practically everything. And they come in a range of styles, colors, and prices. Read more
