I’m happy to report that it’s finally starting to feel like sweater weather around here. You don’t even know how happy that makes me. I’m a huge fan of chilly weather. I know you East Coasters probably think I’m crazy, but when you live in L.A. it’s not something you’re used to. This gloomy day helped me realize that it’s time to stock up on cozy sweaters.
If you need to know anything about me, at this very moment, then you should know I’m obsessed with kimonos. Like…I want to wear them all of the time. In fact, I bought one yesterday. I’m a sucker for the flowy material and yummy prints. Are you with me? Do you love them too? I went snooping around online and found 16 plus-size kimonos that should be in my closet right now.
After rummaging through the hubby’s closet, I realized he needs a few things for fall. Of course, he hates shopping, so that gives me the opportunity to have a little fun. So, I went online and found some things I think he’ll like. And that’s how I came up with these fall essentials for men. Now, these are items that are great for pairing with other existing pieces in their wardrobe and perfect for layering.
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 my closet.
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 booties to consider for fall. Here’s my list.
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 even supplied me with a gift card to give away to you (details below)!
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 at the end of this post, which includes a cover of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Bang Bang!”
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 and do a little shopping for ourselves! Here are seven back-to-school fashion trends that even we can wear.
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 public.
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 Dr. Martens boots. Yes, I went there. Well, just like all trends, they tend to circle back and this seems to be the style of the moment.
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 fashion. And yes, she is passionate about it! She gifted me a piece from her latest collection and I wore it proud. In fact, I can’t wait to wear it again.
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 lately, I have to make sure this chick stays cool and refreshed while I hit the streets. That means a bag of necessities and these summer tips (courtesy of Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee) that will beat the heat.
