My Favorite Designer Sunglasses for Summer!

If you didn’t know, I once sold designer sunglasses at Nordstrom. It was probably one of my favorite retail jobs! Hellooooo…I got to see the styles before anyone else and I got an employee discount. It didn’t get any better than that. My wallet didn’t like it so much, but I loved it. Now, I lust after designer glasses like Gucci and Fendi. Many people don’t understand the love for a great quality pair of…

Va Bien Full Figure Soft Cup Bra

I want to try…Va Bien!

Just look at the stunning Melissa McCarthy in Va Bien’s Lacey Full Figure Bustier in the February 2012 issue of W! And if there’s one thing I love it’s sexy lingerie! Was that TMI? Sorry, but when you wear something sexy like this underneath your outfit, that has to put a little sexy “pep-in-your-step” for the day! Va Bien, French for “Fits Well,” has been around since 1979 creating glamorous and sexy lingerie and shapewear.…

Fashion Frustration Makes me Feel Pixelated!

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 my back hurting the way it has, I can’t leave my house and the hubby hates to shop, so I’ve…

Shoe Fever: Aldo Favorites

I need to go shopping. How many times have you heard me say that? LOL! But, this time I’m super serious! I’m supposed to go to New York next week for Full Figured Fashion Week and I am not one bit ready. Not at all. And to make matters worse, I need everything. Especially shoes!! When I realized this, I made my way over to one my favorite shoe stores, Aldo. Every time I walk…

Beauty Buzz: Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion

Remember when Suave was just a generic version of a shampoo? You’d only use it when you were low on cash. Come on! You know what I’m talking about. I can honestly tell you (which I think have a few times already) that this is not the same Suave. Suave Professionals is getting better and better. In January I tried their Keratin Infusion 30 Day Smoothing Kit and I really loved it! You can view…

Designer Details: Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013

Are you in love with this designer as I am? Just so you know, I am always and forever in awe of Oscar de la Renta. He is one of my favorite designers when it comes to classic and elegant fashion. Unfortunately, he doesn’t create plus sizes, but I can definitely use his designs as inspiration. Last week I just happened to catch the live stream of his Resort 2013 runway show. Of course I…
