You have to love resort collections. Geared towards the holiday (AKA vacationing during winter) woman—they’re more like pre-spring/summer collection. I always look at it like that’s what I can expect in the upcoming seasons. And that’s what we get here with the Carmakoma Resort 2015 collection. It’s very European chic…I love that!
Fall is here and I’m sad to say that my wardrobe is not ready. As much as I wanted summer to be over, this procrastinator hasn’t really done any fall shopping. I blame it on the warm L.A. weather. Now, that I know it’s fall, there are five plus-size tops I want to add to [...]
I think Los Angeles just got a few drops of rain. That and my continuing fall obsession with cardigans has kicked my need for “all things fall” into action. Yes, this includes a much-needed pair of ankle booties. I think I’ve found a pair I want, but there are a few other styles of ankle [...]
When I found out that Lane Bryant was revamping their Lane Collection, I was anxious to see what they would come up with. Weren’t you? After renaming it to 6th & Lane, they’ve designed a modern and clean collection—one that I really appreciate. And after selecting a few pieces, I created the look below. They [...]
COVERGIRL knows how to throw a party. Last night, they kicked off the MTV Video Music Awards with a pre-party featuring performances by Becky G and Jessie J. Yes, they are not only “Easy, Breezy, and Beautiful,” but they’re both extremely amazing performers. Total girl power! Watch the video I took of them both performing [...]
Sigh…I miss school. Yes, I’m one of those people. I love history, writing papers, researching, and all of that good stuff. But, one of my favorite things ever was the back-to-school shopping. Well, just because we’re adults and no longer in school, doesn’t mean we have to necessarily miss out on the fun. We can go out [...]
If you live in Southern California and are a fan of the Australian plus size retailer City Chic, then you’re going to love this. They have finally opened their first U.S. store location in Los Angeles and they have more stores opening soon! I was invited to an exclusive in-store preview—before they opened to the [...]
Are you ready? Let’s go back to the 90’s. I just realized that was ummmmm…over 20 years ago. I’m proud to say I was killing it back then with my style! Thanks to my mom of course. I think what I loved the most about 90s fashion trends were the floral baby doll dresses and [...]
There are perks to this blogger life. Like meeting amazing people, who turn into awesome friends. It doesn’t happen all of the time, but when it does—it’s golden. Elann Zelie is one of those awesome friends. I’ve written about her line Zelie for She before. You know I love her style and passion for creating [...]
I’ll be the first person to admit I’m not a fan of the intense heat. But, I do love summer in Los Angeles, it’s not too unbearable (like other cities). Now, if it could stay 75 degrees the entire season—I’d be a happy Angeleno (we know it won’t). And since it seems like I’m always on-the-go [...]
Once upon a time, someone challenged me to “just try it on” and stop worrying about what the label says. If it looks like it might fit, then we must give it a chance. That’s what I did when I ran across this Johnny Was tee at the recent OCRF Super Saturday shopping event.
Sure pineapple’s are sweet, delicious, and remind us of sitting on a beach sipping a piña colada. Mmmmmmmm…Anyways, did you know the pineapple print trend is ready to invade? Well, apparently it is. Because, I found a lot of it…yes even a few pieces for us plus size gals. And of course I had to [...]
