I’m staring at my closet right now wondering if I can squeeze more shoes in there. Looks like a big fat “No.” I was not made to have a small closet. Now, I’m trying to figure out where I can store them (my poor husband). Read more
IGIGI’s latest campaign, Art of Fashion in Motion, features beautiful model Kailee O’Sullivan. I’ve always been an IGIGI fan, not only because Yuliya Raquel’s designs are so chic, but because she uses the most stunning models! Don’t take my word for it, just take a look at the images below, then do a little shopping here. Read more
Hello my loves!
I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I did! I was invited to celebrate the 3-year Blogaversary of The Curvy Fashionista, here in Los Angeles. Marie is a good friend of mine, so I was more than happy to support her. Besides, it was an awesome party! It was filled with not only bloggers, but family, friends, models, designers, celebs, and fans. It was also a great way to meet up with a lot of my friends. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of the night, but I did snap a photo of my outfit. And if you follow me on Twitter, then you know there was someone at the party wearing the same dress I was! That has never happened to me before, so I was a little thrown off at first. But, I got over it (after a while LOL) and had an amazing time. I even snapped a pic with her, which I’ll post on my Facebook once I get it.
I’m wearing the Retro Chic by Torrid, Leopard One Shoulder Dress. The minute I saw the beautiful Denise Bidot modeling it on the Torrid web site, I knew I had to have it. Normally, I’d shy away from a dress like this, but I’m not going to fear fashion anymore. This dress fit like a glove and really hugged my curves. I felt so sassy and sexy in it! And I’m a big fan of the ruched sides. My shoes are my “oldie but goodie” Jessica Simpson patent leather peep toe platforms. It was a great dress for a great night! Congrats again Marie and may you celebrate many many years of blogging!
Hairstylist from around the world swear by L’Oreal Paris’ Elnett Satin hairspray. I swear I see it in almost every photo from a “behind the scenes” shoot. Well, it’s not a new product by any means. In fact, it’s been around for four decades. But, it’s only been available in the U.S. for a few years.
I was recently gifted a can at a L’Oreal event and I’ve kind of become obsessed with it. It really offers hold, but it doesn’t leave your hair sticky. And it brushes out really easily without leaving any of that white residue that some hairsprays do. Guess that’s where the “satin” comes from.
It’s also supposed to offer protection against humidity, but we don’t have much of this around Los Angeles, so I’m not sure. Some people do complain of the scent, but I actually like it. If you’re one of those, they do offer an unscented formula. Regardless, this is one great product. Looks like I’ve found a hairspray that will continue to stand the test of time.
Elnett Satin is available in four formulas: Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold Unscented, and Extra Strong Hold for Color-Treated hair. The last one offers a UV filter to protect your colored hair.
Look mom! I like something besides sequins! Yes, my loves, I’m venturing into metallics. Whether it’s a top, jacket, shoe, or even a handbag-getting in on the shine will make you stand out. And if you don’t want to go all out, then why not add something with a touch of metallic. It’s a great way to break up an all-black outfit.
I put together a few collages below. The first three are outfits with a few touches of metallic. Each one has it’s twist. Then you have a selection of a few bags and clutches I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on, especially this one from ASOS (right). Then I venture into shoes…of course. Ughhhh dying over these shoes. Are you drooling yet?
