Win! Playtex 18 Hour Bra Review & Giveaway

I’ve said it many times before on this blog, but I’m always looking for a comfortable wireless bra. I get so irritated when a wire starts poking me! And because I am larger in the chest, finding a wireless bra that will actually support me and offer full coverage can be difficult. That’s why I [...]

A JET and Sophia Outfit Kind of Day

Most of you know that I love the laid back L.A. style and this outfit is a perfect example of that. Torrid sent me the JET John Eshaya White Leopard Print Tank ($34.50) and the Sophia Jegging Regular length ($58.50).

Simply Yours and the Camisole

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in the plus size online-shopping world,  it’s that there are quite a few options in the U.K. I used to live in Europe and at that time, I didn’t do any online shopping for clothes. Today, you can find almost anything online, including lingerie.  Sexy! Sexy! Simply Yours is [...]

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 [...]

Hopefully [...]

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 [...]
