U.S. welcomes Simply Be online!

I’ve got good news, if you didn’t already know…
Simply Be is now available online in the U.S.!!

Remember these OOTD’s? I was lucky enough to review this denim halter and Anna Scholz dress from Simply Be before their online shop arrived here in the U.S. The clothes are really great quality and comfy. Not to mention very chic. They have tons of selections. So make sure you check them out! Go to www.SimplyBe.com

Etsy Find: NewExtrave Fashion

Have you ever dared to buy “one size fits all” clothing? I am seriously thinking about it after seeing these pieces by NewExtrave on Etsy. They not only look comfy, but they look perfect for the summer. Most items are made from linen or cotton, which is super cool in my book. Some can even be custom made. They have tons of great reviews too. Would you try a “one size fits all dress?” If you’ve ever purchased anything from NewExtrave, please let me know.

Juicy Couture Torture

Juicy Couture…what are you doing to me? Come on!! You can not continue to create such gorgeous pieces of jewelry and not expect me to fall in love. I mean…look at these vintage style beauties. Why or why must you torture me?

Wish List: Faith 21

It’s about to get really bright in here, thanks to the good ol’ Forever 21’s Faith 21 line.

Despite, their sometimes lack of quality, I still love the pieces they are producing. But, for the prices you pay, do you really expect them to be top of the line quality. If they were, we’d be paying A LOT more than $17.80 for a top.

Can I tell you how much I am into bright colors and prints right now. This is not my style at all, but I am trying to step out of my clothing comfort zone. You know…fashion baby steps.

I want all of these pieces right now. I can see any of the tops paired with skinny jeans, leggings, or shorts. And the dresses are so summer chic, just throw on a pair of flip flops or gladiator sandals.

Summer makes me want to shop! Not good.

Celeb Beauty: Christina Hendricks

Stunner Alert!!

Look at the gorgeous Christina Hendricks as she’s featured in the recent Los Angeles Times Magazine.We don’t get to see her glorious curves, but we do get a peek at these five retro glam beauty looks. Here’s a little peek from the interview.

As a woman, I have to say the retro underwear on Mad Men actresses looks like utter torture. Am I wrong?

No, you’re not wrong. We’re so used to it now, but those undergarments really aren’t made for relaxing. If I get my entire costume on, and I have to wait a few hours for my next scene, I have to learn how to position myself, otherwise the boning presses into my guts! It can really hurt those internal organs! I have this little war wound—a blister from wearing a garter the other day for 17 hours.

Shoe Fever: Steve Madden

Of course all the shoes I want are $99 and over! Somehow, the hot shoes and I are always separated. We’re kind of like Romeo and Juliet. We’re destined to be together, but other circumstances keep us apart…like no money. Except, I don’t think I would die for them. So, maybe we aren’t like Romeo and Juliet after all. See how these hot shoes mess with my mind!! Read more

Favorite Summer Dress?

Ok…I look yucky and I’m not too happy with these photos, but they’ll do. I just wanted to show you the outfit I wore on Saturday, for our little gathering. This is the dress I bought at H&M. It is very roomy. It’s a large and I think it would fit anyone up to a size 22. This may be my new favorite dress for the summer and it has pockets! Yay! The great thing about this dress is the print and the colors. It can be worn so many different ways!

Dress; H&M
Belt: Old Navy
Leggings: Target
Earrings: Target

Beauty Buzz: mark.

Great prices, quality products, and a name that every woman knows. Yes, I’m talking about Avon products, but not really. I’m talking about mark. It’s an Avon brand aimed towards young women. So, what do you think? Do you use mark.? Do you sell it? What do you think of it?

Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?

Of course I have to give some love to Chanel because she’s the epitome of fashion. I’m also loving Kate Spade’s collections more and more these days. I love her mod/vintage and cutesy vibe. It’s so girly and I love girly. I should call her one of these days and let her know she needs to start producing plus sizes. ;-P

But in the real world – my go-to designer is B&Lu. I also love local street wear SD designers like 5& A Dime, and PNOY Apparel. They’re my weekend wear – which consists of a t-shirt and a jean skirt.

What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
SPANX. No doubt.

If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
I would create a hair removal cream … where unwanted hair can be gone forever! Can I get an AMEN ladies? I would name it Baby’s Cheeks. LOL. I dont know!

If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
An LBD, pumps, and red lipstick. It would be a fashion show at Crystals in Vegas. Front row with Vuitton giveaways of course.

Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?

Yes. What my mom taught me — FASHION KNOWS NO SIZE.
