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 [...]

Review: Cacique’s Smooth Satin No-Wire Bra

You know as well as I do, that finding the perfect bra is torture! It can not only be annoying, but it can be expensive and time consuming. I have been on the hunt for a wireless bra, that was not only affordable, but that actually “held up” its end of the bargain…if you know [...]

OOTD: Plaid, Cheap, and Easy?

Oh Target…this is another reason I love you! I picked up this Converse One Star plaid dress for only $7 on clearance! I will admit it’s around two sizes too big, but nothing a little alteration won’t take care of. Besides if you just tie the strings in the back really tight, you can’t even [...]

Fall Trends 2010: Military

If there is ever a trend I can relate to the most, it’s definitely military fashion. Yes, my curvy friends, I did serve in the U.S. military.

I not only got a few freebies from sponsors like Chevy, Pixi, [...]

So, when I was contacted to try Bali’s Comfort-U Back bra I was pretty excited. This new line features the beautiful Helena Christensen and boasts about the straps and the back of the bra [...]
