This Trend is Cool as Blue

Image found on JustJared.comThe minute I saw Chanel Iman in this amazing turquoise dress, I knew I had to write this post. I’m not sure who the designer is, but I do know she wore it to the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.Raise your hand if you wish a designer would make this gown for us curvy girls (raises hand). Why do straight sizes have all the fashion fun? No fair!This has always been one of my favorite colors. It reminds me of the turquoise jewelery my mom would buy me from Arizona. Did you notice there are…

Who is Manon Baptiste?

I’m on an official mission to find out who designer Manon Baptiste is. Do you know?I think he/she might be a French designer. I’m on Navabi.us and I’ve noticed a lot of this designer’s pieces are sold out. And I can’t for the life of me, find any more information about this designer on the internet. It’s driving me crazy. LOL. Sorry, I’m anal like that.These are my two favorite pieces and for designer fashion, the prices aren’t too bad. I am loving how these just hug the natural curves of the body. Don’t you just love that? The first dress…

Chiffon is Chic!

It’s about to get real classy up in here…make room for chiffon ladies. Chiffon is that material that was usually saved for special occassion dresses. Not anymore. I have seen this trend every where. And I really think any age or size can wear it in almost any color. There are so many different styles and it’s used different ways. Personally, I love when it’s used on the sleeves. Just so you know, I am literally lusting after #4 from Dorothy Perkins and if someone buys it before I do…I just might scream.Which chiffon piece below caught your eye? 1. Dorothy…

Maxi Dress Heaven with City Chic

I’ve already told you I’m obsessed with maxi dresses this season. And this one from City Chic is no exception. I wore this at the opening of the About Face exhibit and I never felt more sexy. Seriously, it’s a va-va-voom dress in the chest area. Meaning, it showed a lot of cleavage. LOL. The dress is no longer available on CityChicOnline.com. Sorry, but there are tons of other pretty dresses. I paired it with gold earrings, a black cascading cardigan, Nine West open-toed pumps, and my new fave Melie Bianco clutch. I wore the dress again on my birthday…

Tracy & City Chic on the Latin Billboard Award’s Red Carpet

Guest post written by Tracy López of Latinaish.comI was invited to the Latin Billboard Awards and red carpet, courtesy of Telemundo. One of my first thoughts after receiving the invitation, (after, “OMG! I could meet Espinoza Paz or Pitbull!”) – was, “What in the world am I going to wear?!”A smart friend recommended I contact Monique for advice and Monique did me one better – she hooked me up with CityChicOnline.com. They asked me to pick a dress, so after consulting about a dozen friends about three different dresses I liked on their website, the choice was obvious. Overwhelmingly my friends…

What I Wore: City Chic’s Passion Flower Maxi

What do you wear on a sunny day in Los Angeles? A maxi dress! Not just any dress, but the Passion Flower Maxi (on sale $30) by City Chic. The Australian fashion retailer is really impressing me with the fit and quality of their designs. My hubby picked this dress and I’m so happy he did. It’s the perfect length for my 5’6 height. I really liked the slight draping in the front and the ruched band on the bust. My favorite part of the dress is the fact that it actually fit me in the chest area without falling…

What I Wore: Hispanicize Conference

Last week I attended the Hispanicize 2011 right here in Hollywood. It was their 2nd Annual PR & Social Media conference. I had an amazing time networking and reconnecting with my friends. I was asked to sit in on a panel of Fashion and Beauty bloggers. I was pretty nervous. There were four of us up there and I couldn’t help but stress how brands and companies are passing up opportunities to work with the “plus size” community.I also made sure to tell the audience, that I don’t sit here telling you what to wear. I just give you recommendations…
