Me, Myself, and Baseball

To know me is to love me. And to really know me, is to know my love for sports—especially baseball. Some might say I’m a little too passionate, but that’s neither here nor there. I might not write about it here on my blog that often, but it’s a part of who I am. It has been since like…forever. My hubby and I are even proud season ticket holders for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Yes, the love is real and yes…I bleed Dodger blue. Am I alone here? I mean…who wouldn't lay down in centerfield? 👋🏽 I regret nothing. #Dodgers #iLoveLA…

Marina Rinaldi Spring/Summer 2016 Preview

When it comes to plus size fashion, I think a lot of people tend to forget that luxury designers are part of the industry. A brand like Marina Rinaldi, which has been around since 1980, is designing sophisticated yet modern designs for the curvy woman. I was invited to a special spring/summer preview at their Beverly Hills boutique and I was in love with so many pieces. As you’ll see below, this italian brand is all about colors and prints for the upcoming seasons. My favorite part of the collection is the collaboration with Japanese Fashion Designer Tsumori Chisato. It’s…

Seriously, finding what we needed was never a problem. This seems to be the same story today, as searsStyle launches a plus-size line called Simply Emma. The new line features staples like lingerie, tees, and active wear, and trending pieces…
