Bored…

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

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!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

I’m off to spend the day with my family. Be safe and have fun out there! Curvy ladies don’t drink and drive. Oh…and don’t be confused, that is NOT me in the photo. I know it’s hard to tell us apart. Lol.

Seeing Green…

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day!! Drink your green beer, wear your favorite green top, and make sure you don’t get pinched! Unless you want to! You ladies are kinda feisty! LOL!!

Whatever you do to celebrate, make sure you look and feel fabulous while you’re doing it! Be safe and here is a little green inspiration!

Models with Curves: Kate Dillon

Kate Dillon…you are quite the inspiration. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at this video on the Vogue Curvy site. Loving the video btw.

She’s been modeling for 20 years? Wow! Kate looks better than any average 19-year-old model on the runway.

I firmly believe that what makes you sexy and beautiful is not the size of your body or the colour lipstick you have on. What really makes you sexy is what you project, your confidence, and your self awareness, having a great sense of humour and being really smart.“-Kate Dillon

With confidence, poise, and beauty on her side…who wouldn’t want to be like her?

Can I get married again?

Today, I met up with my cousin as she plans her wedding. Ahhhhh…I love weddings. I’ve always wanted to be a wedding planner, but sometimes I’m a little impatient. I said sometimes. Lol. So, she tried on a few wedding gowns and now I want to get married again. OK, I don’t want to spend the money, but I want to plan one. I also want to try on wedding gowns! Ugh! Not fair…I want that dress up there! It’s by Alfred Angelo. So dreamy! I think I’m going to make my hubby renew our wedding vows. Maybe on a beach in Mexico…

It’s Monday?

I don’t know about you…but I’m exhausted again. Monday’s always kick my butt. Of course I don’t have any outfits to post, cause I suck. Sorry. But, I do want to show you the three handbags I picked up at the local thrift store. There were so many bags, it was insane. I love the vintage look of all three. And I only spent a grand whopping total of $5! Man, I’m good!

I spent time with friends and family on Saturday, too much fun if you ask me. Sunday was a very blessed day. My hubby grilled up some steaks and made me dinner. I asked him if he needed me to do anything…and he said…”yeah, relax.” Awwwww…I love this guy. Lol. Ok, now that I’ve made you sick…I’m outtie!

Forever 21 Wish List

Forever 21…why must you tempt me like this? I was doing so well. Then I find these beauties. Didn’t you know I was a bargainista and I have been trying my hand at the local thrift stores? Now, I must buy something from you. I’ll tell my hubby that it’s all your fault…and he should blame you. Sorry…someone has to take the fall. And it’s not going to be me.

Vintage Curves: LA Vintage

I love checking out vintage fashion. But, will it fit me? LA Vintage to the rescue…they are pretty awesome! Just check out the pieces that caught my eye. They have an amazingly large collection in their “plus-size” department. The condition of the piece and measurements are listed to help you out. I also joined their forum, where you can discuss all things vintage, and I am now following their blog.

Bargainistas, they didn’t forget about you. If you sign up through their Facebook page, you get 20% of your next purchase! Check them out and grab something you like before it’s sold out, but don’t worry they add items daily! Don’t forget, buying vintage is Eco-friendly!!

Bargainista Finds

I was such a bargain shopper this past weekend! I know I said I might post a video, but it looks like it’s not happening. Sorry. Instead, I am posting a few pics of what I bought. The shoes are by Candie’s and only cost $5!! I know!! They are a plum color and I’ve already broken them in. Bargainista should be my middle name. Also, belts have become my new favorite accessory. The top belt is by Betsey Johnson and I adore it! You already know I’m not daring when it comes to prints, but I am going out on a limb here and I bought a few pieces. I’ve worn the dresses and they are very comfy. The necklace is by Avril Lavigne, I don’t know if you can tell but it’s fuchsia. It was on clearance…of course! Lol.

Curves & Photos

A size-14 dummy cuts a lonely figure among the size-10s at Wendy Atkins' mannequin store in Sydney.

I saw this photo online and had to share it with you. Here is a “plus size” mannequin next to the so-called “normal” sized mannequins in Sydney, Australia. Read the news story here.
