Sassy City Chicks ‘Fashion Bash’ with My Girls!

Today, Cid from Cid’s Style File and I celebrated our friendship anniversary! Yes, I met Cid at the last Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash at the Peterson Automotive Museum here in L.A.! Memories…LOL. I met up with Cid, Nik from xoxo NikStar, Marie the Curvy Fashionista, the stylist extraordanaire Reah Norman, and beautylicious model Denise Bidot. We were in prime shopping mode!

I love these shopping events, but there is something missing…plus size fashion! It’s so sad, because we were ready to spend money! It seems like all we can get at these events are jewelry, shoes, and accessories. Not complaining about that, but I would love to be able to buy clothing. Are you shopping event planners listening?

I took a test drive in the new 2011 Chevy Camaro and Cruz, and we got in on some yummy Carl’s Jr. courtesy of Chevy. We even got our hands on some swag! Gotta love that swag! It was a great evening. Just take a look at my pics below!

Win a Charles & Victoria Design!

We all know that curves come in ALL shapes and of course sizes. I was recently contacted by Rachel the designer and creator of Charles & Victoria. Although this line isn’t a plus size line, she did make her pieces up to a size 14. And as the sizes got bigger, she created more curve where it was needed. Her goal was to design pieces that would fit a curvy body better. I like the way that sounds!

Rachel would love to give away a navy Ruffle Tank Dress in a size XL, which is a US 12/14 or UK 16/18  . Enter the giveaway below.

Photos from Evans A/W Collection

Take a look into Evans A/W collection. These photos (courtesy of Evans) feature models Ashley Graham, Crystal Renn, and Peekay. The collection pretty much has everything you need for the season. From the chilly fall day to the hot winter night! I want to be Ashley Graham when I grow up!

Old Navy & the Wool Coat

Although it’s currently 87 degrees here in Los Angeles, I am still in search of a winter coat. I’m still waiting for Mother Nature to tell the City of Angels to turn this heat down. I yearn for the cold weather…yes…I used the word “yearn.” Well, I do!

Old Navy has these amazing Wool-blend coats, all on sale by the way. They range in price from $29-$79.50 and in sizes up to XXL or 4X. I think I love the first one, it’s the Women’s Double Breasted coat in brown or black. I’d take both.Which one is your fave?

Orient Watch USA Giveaway!

 The holidays are right around the corner and what better way to start it off than crossing someone off your gift list in November. Here’s your chance to win a watch from Orient Watch USA!

Orient watches “are mechanical watches powered by a mainspring, without using electrical power. The winding of the spring causes the “heart” of the watch to beat.” In other words…they don’t require a battery and they wind themselves when you wear it!

    Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Runway Finale

    The Curvy Collective

    Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ ended with a fatshionable bang last night! Not only did everyone look amazing! But, it was a little surreal. There I was sitting in a room with people who love fatshion as much as I do. With beautiful women of all shapes and sizes on the runway and people cheering them on as they strutted their stuff. It was so inspiring and outrageously fun!

    Before I go on, I want to thank the “oh so chic” Gwen DeVoe and Marie (The Curvy Fashionista), for including me in “The Curvy Collective.” I am honored.

    Last nights runway finale showcased the best in the plus size biz. They were Abundance Plus Size Boutique, Chan.Nel Karama, LTD., Forever 21+, Hips and Curves, IGIGI By Yuliya Raquel, Jill Alexander Designs, Kiyonna, Lane Bryant, Plush Boutique, Sassi Rebel Clothing, Sealed with a Kiss, SONSI, and Youtheary Khmer. The fashion was unreal! I included a few pics below of the night. I am going to do a recap in the next few days that will include ALL of the photos I took. In the meantime, enjoy.

    Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Panel & Discussions

    We came, we discussed, and we conquered! If there was ever a more productive and powerful day, it had to be yesterday at the Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Panel & Discussions. I unfortunately missed the first session “The Voluptuous Woman Company, Inc® presents “The PLUS Side of Business”, but I did make it to the “New and Aspiring Models Panel Discussion/Seminar” and “The State of the Curvy Community.” I learned a lot from the top people in the “curvy” business! Here are a few photos from yesterday.

    There’s still time to attend tonight’s finale and runway show! You can’t buy them online, but they are available at the door, but it’s CASH ONLY! Visit for details!

    Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ Opening Reception & “Curves for a Cure”

    Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ officially started last night with a cocktail reception and “Curves for a Cure” fundraiser. It was an amazing night for an amazing cause! I am a strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awarness, since it has unfortunately touched my family. The event was hosted by the fabulous Gwen DeVoe, talented songstress Kelly Price, and 102.3’s Lon McQ. All proceeds went to the L.A. Komen for a Cure Foundation.

    This was also a chance for all the bloggers to meet up. It was great seeing all of these beautiful faces in one place. There was even a Sonsi Photo Booth we were all playing with. I will post those pics later! It was too much fun. I finally wore my City Chic top (gifted by City Chic) out with a pair of black skinny jeans and Jessica Simpson open toe platform pumps. I was bringing the bling last night! Don’t forget, you can still purchase tickets to Saturday’s Finale Event! Go Here!!

    Stay tuned for pics and recap from today’s panel sessions. You can follow me on twitter @CurvesandChaos where I will be tweeting live!
