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.
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!!
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.
Alexander McQueen’s final collection, Chanel’s obvious weather statement, and Valentino’s ruffles make Paris Fashion Week all it’s hyped up to be. But, take a look for yourself. Let me know what you think. I am in love with Valentino’s collection…Chanel has me puzzled, and Alexander McQueen left me wanting more.
There is one thing I can’t stand! Being told what prints a curvy woman should and shouldn’t wear. I believe we can wear anything, as long as it’s in moderation. That goes for non-curvy women as well. I just wanted to get an idea of what you think. Please take a second to answer the poll. Thanks!
Tassles and Fringe? Yes…tassles and fringe. They’re adding some “Oomph” to your feet. Read more
Stella McCartney Paris Fall 2010
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?
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.

I’m broke as a joke…so I will e-window shop…again. I was browsing the Torrid web site and I fell for these 4 pieces. Oh Torrid…why must you be a little too pricey for this blogger on a budget? It’s ok…I will survive. I’m hitting up the Goodwill tomorrow to see what I can find. That will hold me over until the weekend. My name is Monique and I’m a shopaholic!
