Handbag Delight: Beige is back?

Nine West at ShopStyle

**I was at the mall yesterday and I saw tons of handbags in these colors. I’m wondering if you think this color bag can be used year round. Or just a spring/summer color?

Beauty: NYFW Fall 2010

As you can see, the fall runway produced a very simple and attainable look. For the most part, the makeup was light and the hair was wavy. I have always been a fan of the soft lip and strong eye. Oscar de la Renta’s look was a little bit darker than the others, but the women look stunning.
Which designer’s beauty look is your favorite?

Vintage for the Curvy

It’s no secret that vintage clothing for curvy gals is hard to come by. I did a little research and I wanted to share it with you. Here are a just a few sellers on Etsy and the web. Vintage clothing is not only Eco-friendly shopping, but I see it as a great way to find one-of-a-kind high quality pieces for your wardrobe. Read this for guidelines before you buy any vintage clothing.

*If you know of any other sites that sell vintage please leave a comment with the link. Thanks!

This LBD was made for shopping!

My feet hurt! I spent 4 hours at the mall today. I promise I’m not complaining about the shopping part, just the feet. I picked up a few accessories for that F21 dress I bought. I hope it all comes together. I also spent my Sephora gift card from Xmas. And I stopped by H&M and found out they carry size 14 and sometimes 16. I think we should start a petition to get them to carry our sizes! Who’s with me?

Anyways…L.A. was really beautiful today, it was in the 70′s. I didn’t want to wear pants, so I threw on this new dress compliments of Shade Clothing. It’s so comfortable and it has pockets! There’s a band at the waist and pleating, which is flattering btw. The second photo, is what I’m wearing now. I am going to have dinner with the in-laws and now it’s a little chilly. I love wearing tights and boots.

What do you wear when you go shopping?

Peacock Pretty?

There were angels, butterflies, flowers, bows, and sparrows. Every season, a new print explodes into our wardrobes.

This season, you can’t walk into your favorite boutique without trying on at least one item with the peacock design. It’s everywhere.

The question is…are you buying it?

Spring Trends: Safari

Welcome to the Curves and Chaos jungle! This safari spring trend is for the fashionista woman warrior.

Colors like camel, khaki, and Army green can be incorporated into any wardrobe. A simple white tee, tank, or blouse is key for bottoms. Tops go great with jeans.

Don’t forget your accessories either. Canvas bags and wood adorned jewelry add an edge to any outfit. I can’t forget the basketweave-inspired shoe. It’s definitely on my shopping list…along with #5.

My golden rule: Be confident in whatever you wear. Remember, it’s an urban jungle out there!

Shoe Fever: Sandals

I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Here it goes. I use to think gladiator sandals were ugly. There! I said it. But, now they are all that I want to wear for spring and summer. I am also a big fan of the slouchy ‘nomad’ sandal. It’s like playing dress-up, with your feet. I still love my flip-flops, don’t get me wrong. But, I think it’s time to step out in a different style.

Spring Trends: Denim

When I think of denim, the first thing that comes to mind is a great pair of jeans. If you’re the same way, you might want to rethink denim this spring. It’s coming at ya’ in the form of jewelry, dresses, skirts, shoes, and jackets. Are you ready?

**My fave is #2 the Denim Allure Dress by F21. I wanted to buy it this weekend but they only one left and it was too small!

My golden rule: Don’t do denim head to toe. Add one piece and work around it. You don’t want to look like a denim factory threw up on you!

Happy VDay to me!

I know we all love shopping. But, seriously I LOVE SHOPPING! My Valentine’s gift from the hubby was shopping this weekend. He’s a romantic…I know. It was definitely a great Valentine’s Day!

I picked up a lot of great pieces. Including, this sweetheart dress from Forever 21′s Faith 21 line. I am going to a 50th Wedding Anniversary and I’m not sure if this is appropriate or not. I love the dress, but the neckline is a little low. If I wear it I am going to add something underneath, so I’m not flashing everyone at the celebration. Lol.

The dress was on the web site last night, but it’s not there today. (Good thing I grabbed the image last night) It disappeared.

Comfy Comfy Comfy…

If there is one word to describe my personal style, it would have to be comfortable. If I’m not happy with what I’m wearing I’ll be miserable.

This past weekend is a great example of that. The weather was beautiful here in L.A. and I was happy to pull out the sandals. The scarf you see was a lucky purchase on a Saturday morning shopping spree. A definite bargainista find!

As you can see in the pic, my fave piece of clothing right now is a pair of leggings. I adore leggings! Seriously, my husband asked me if I wear real pants anymore. Lol. I am also in love with the long and soft tees from Old Navy. They are a great price and I can wear them long, with a belt, or tuck them in if I want.

Sorry about the blurry pics, but all I have right now is my phone. I’m not on professional photo status yet. I’m just getting the hang of this.
