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

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.

It’s Monday?

Hey beauties!

You’re going to have to excuse me today. I definitely have a case of the Mondays! I am soooooo pooped. It was a very fun-filled and exhausting weekend.

I spent a lot of time with family and even got some shopping done…as you can see in the pic. That’s a new dress I picked up, with my favorite leggings and boots. I wore that to a family function with my black cardigan. It was super comfy!! I’m not very daring when it comes to prints but, what the heck…why not? Lol.

I’m thinking about doing a video later and I’ll show you what I bought. I might even do a little jewelry giveaway! Yay!!

How was your weekend?

Did you get any shopping done?

Spring Trends: Tie Dye

You don’t have to love the 1960′s to appreciate tie-dye. It’s easy to wear, without looking like you’re headed to Woodstock.

Tie-Dye is already making a comeback. I guess we can’t enough of the psychedelic print! It’s definitely a fun print and can easily be found at your local thrift store, if you’re a bargain shopper like me. If you’re a daring and crafty fashionista, you might even attempt to create your own tie-dye fashion pieces! I’m calling dibs on #9!

My golden rule: Don’t let this bold print take over. Choose colors that would compliment your skin tone.
