Full Figured Fashion Week 2012 Press Event

PHEW!!! I’m back from Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek) in New York and I’m exhausted! LOL! But, it’s a good kind of exhausted. Let me just start off my saying, that if you haven’t made it out to any of the FFFWeek events, then I highly recommend you trying to attend next year. It was such an amazing experience!! To see fashion for us on a runway  in New York City never gets old! I was a member of The Fashion Front, a selected group of bloggers to cover all of the FFFWeek events. We were given early access and…

My Favorite Designer Sunglasses for Summer!

If you didn’t know, I once sold designer sunglasses at Nordstrom. It was probably one of my favorite retail jobs! Hellooooo…I got to see the styles before anyone else and I got an employee discount. It didn’t get any better than that. My wallet didn’t like it so much, but I loved it. Now, I lust after designer glasses like Gucci and Fendi. Many people don’t understand the love for a great quality pair of sunglasses, but I do. The craftsmanship and quality is a million times better and if you take care of them then they’ll last a lifetime.…

Sorry, but when you wear something sexy like this underneath your outfit, that has to put a little sexy “pep-in-your-step” for the day! Va Bien, French for “Fits Well,” has been around since 1979 creating glamorous and sexy lingerie and shapewear. It’s been worn by celebrities like Dita Von Teese, former first lady Laura Bush, Alicia Silverstone, Patti Labelle, and Jessica Lange. That’s a wide range…
