Sassy City Chicks L.A. Fashion Bash Event

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping. Just one of the reasons to go to the Sassy City Chicks event. My curvy gals and I were sooooo happy to see a plus size vendor on hand, Sassi Rebel! You can’t even imagine the excitement. Yesterday was my third time attending this event and I always leave with something. [...]

Retro Eyes with Free People

I love sunglasses. You all know I used to work in the accessories department at Nordstrom. I always say that’s where the love affair began. Now, that it’s officially spring, I’m in the mood to start wearing different styles and colors. Right now the love is geared towards retro style sunglasses. Like the Kelly Wayfarer [...]

Belts I’m loving NOW!

I’m kind of on a belt kick right now. They can change an outfit in an instant. Belts can be used as an accessory to an already simply chic outfit or to give you shape while embracing your curves. There are two skinny belts below, but for some reason I’m loving the wide chunky belts [...]

A Day of Shopping

I’m back after honoring the ‘For Japan with Love’ Blogger’s Day of Silence. On my day off I had a chance to go to the Fashion District in Downtown Los Angeles with my girl Ivory. FYI, she’s a fabulous fashionista and an awesome shopping partner. We were in search of plus size fashion and believe [...]

Rings Take Shape

I am now just realizing that I need more rings in my life. After wearing the big sparkly one I bought at Aldo Accessories I know I need more! Call it a budding obsession with statement rings. But, everyone should have at least one statement ring. If you don’t, then you have no idea what [...]

Black, White & Leopard All Over

I’m all about being inspired today. In fact, the immediate second I saw these delicious Leo Platform heels from Alloy ($46.99), I knew I had to write this post. Leopard is always in style, but I say we venture out of our fashion comfort boxes and go a different route with black and white leopard print. [...]

What I Wore: Lane Bryant Runway Finale

Thanks to Madison Plus for using this photo of me in their “The Curvy Revolution Fan Looks” post on their blog The Dish. When I saw it, I realized I didn’t have a clear pic of my outfit from the runway finale night. You can’t tell, but I struggled with my hair that night, so [...]

The Lane Bryant “Revolution”

Where do I even start? First of all, I want to thank Lane Bryant for the VIP pass to The Curvy Revolution. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have had such an amazing experience. On the final day of the convention, I finally ran into NettaP, one of my favorite bloggers. Love that girl! [...]

Yes, you can shop at Charlotte Russe

Necklaces by Charlotte Russe Most curvy gals can’t shop at the affordable mall favorite Charlotte Russe. They don’t make clothes for us. In fact, every time I walk in there I always head right over to the accessories. Here are a few necklaces, handbags, and shoes that would make my spring shopping list in an [...]

The Shopping Diaries: Last Minute Shopper

With only three days left until New Year’s Eve, I’ve been on the hunt for something to wear. I’ve purchased and returned like a mad woman. I’ve had a dress for a while that I was going to wear, but I tried it on the other night and it just didn’t look right. So, I [...]

The Shopping Diaries: Discrimination?

I am a true lover of shopping. Not just spending money, although that’s fun too. But, I am completely happy “just looking” in a mall filled to the brim with fashion, beauty products, shoes, and accessories. Even without buying a thing. I’m not talking about window shopping. I need to actually feel the merchandise and [...]
