TIME/CNN/People/Fortune 2010 White House Correspondents' Dinner Pre-Party


Chopard Celebrates 150 Years Of Excellence - Arrivals

These lovely ladies have definitely inspired me to get some color back into my wardrobe! Jessica Simpson and Gabourey Sidibe simply glowed at the TIME/CNN/People/Fortune 2010 White House Correspondents’ Dinner Pre-Party. While Christina Ricci made me green with envy at Chopard Celebrates 150 Years Of Excellence party. But, you’re not going to find me running around L.A. in a cocktail dress or fancy gown. Sorry.

I’m going to stay closer to my price range…like Old Navy! One of my favorite stores to shop at. Here are three spring/summer alternatives, all under $40! And if the weather gets chilly, throw on a cardigan or wrap. Simple, easy, and cheap.


Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!


Style Trend: Pencil Skirts

Pencil skirt? Yes, please!
These are from Torrid and they are the definition of glamour.
Love the cut. It reminds me of a fashion era that def needs to return!

Style Trend: Lace-Up Boots

Lace-Up Boots are…

a) Haute!!

b) Too masculine for me.

or

c) A trend I’m willing to try.

The reason I’m asking? I’m not 100% sure if this is a trend I’m sold on.
I was at the Beverly Center a week ago and I saw these boots everywhere. Let me know what you think.

Style Trend: Lovely Lace

Do you love lace?

Then you, my dear curvy fashionista, is really going to love this style trend. I’ve been out and about and have noticed lace popping up everywhere. It can add a touch of femininity to a t-shirt and a ton of personality to your outfit. There is just something so sexy about lace!

Style Trend: Floral Print

Spring is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear floral prints now.

I saw a pic of Scarlett Johansson wearing a floral print dress and it looked very chic. You can wear floral too! My only piece of advice is to not wear it head to toe.

Wear the floral print as a statement piece, while pairing it with a solid color pant, top, or cardigan. You can even do a great scarf like the one on the Torrid model (left).

Because I am curvy, I have always been afraid to wear prints. Not anymore. I’m stepping out the fashion box and I’m going to let fashion show the world who I am!


Style Trend: Stripes

Some might say a curvy woman shouldn’t wear lateral stripes. I say don’t listen to them. We can wear whatever we want. In moderation of course. Why should we let the non-curvy gals have all the fun?

Don’t be afraid to add a few stripes to your wardrobe. Just promise me you won’t go overboard. Repeat after me…”Stripes are not scary.” It’s up to you to wear them with pride.
