Style Trend: The Black Lace Dress

I don’t care that it’s hotter than *&%$#@^! outside, I can’t stop thinking about the upcoming holiday season! That means lots of parties and events. It’s time to start thinking about dresses! Instead of the basic LBD, why not try a LBLD? A Little Black Lace Dress. I just invented that by-the-way.

Curvy Girl Travels: Packing for San Antonio

Guess who’s going to San Antonio this weekend? Meeeeeee! Yes, I’ll be in the “Lone Star State” for the People En Espanol Festival!   Before I go any further make sure you RSVP for the three Twitter parties Mamiverse is hosting this week. If you’re in San Antonio, they’ll be giving away passes to the [...]

Style Trend: Houndstooth

The houndstooth print isn’t for everyone. In fact, half of you probably love it and the other half…not so much. But, that’s OK! Just because it’s a trend doesn’t mean you have to like it. I like my prints in small doses, that’s just me. And I can imagine wearing this print, also known as [...]

We all know that trends come and go…some faster than others. Sometimes quicker than we’d like. So, while I have your attention, here are a few trends I’m loving right now!

FFFWeek Indie Designer: SK WilLBUR & Ashley Nell Tipton

I seriously think the photos will never stop! LOL! In an attempt to bring you all the amazingness from Full Figured Fashion Week…this is the last post with individual designers. The next two will contain all of the remaining designers. If I continued at this rate, then I’d be posting for a few weeks. And [...]

OOTD: “Curves in the City” Shopping Event

There’s just something about a maxi dress that makes me smile. See…look below…I’m smiling! LOL! Thank you to Torrid for sending me the Blush Slub Knit Ruffle Maxi Dress ($64). I adored it and I got tons of compliments on it. I was kind of bummed when I had to change later that day. As [...]

This Week’s Fashion Frustration

Blame it on me not feeling well or the fact that I waited until the last minute, but I am “fashion frustrated” at the moment. I can not seem to find anything to wear for Full Figured Fashion Week. I know I still have about 4 days left to shop, but come on! And with [...]

OOTD: IGIGI’s Diana Infinity Dress

The minute I was asked to review a dress from IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel I immediately said yes! I’m a big fan of her designs and was very interested in seeing how her clothes fit. I chose the Diana Infinity Dress in Multi ($165) because of the cool python-like print. And I’m all for a [...]

The maxi dresses and I go way back…I love them. I can seriously wear them from spring through summer, ask anyone. They never go out of style and I doubt they ever will (crossing fingers).

Swimwear: BECCA ETC Animal Instincts

As you know, I had a chance to preview the new plus size BECCA ETC swimwear collection and I pretty much love it! And I wanted to share my favorite of all the lines-Animal Instincts. I guess I’m a sucker for python print and I’m in love with the colors too! There are so many [...]

OOTD: Feisty in Leopard

As you can tell I’m in an animal print kind of mood, makes me feel a little feisty! Saturday night we were invited out for a birthday dinner in Downtown L.A. and I couldn’t throw this dress on fast enough. The Natural Leopard Surplice Chalice dress (courtesy of Torrid) was a perfect pick for our [...]
