Time does fly when you’re having fun! After returning from Blogalicious in Miami, I only had a day-and-a-half to get ready for my next trip. This time it was a 4 day mini-vacay to see my best friend (in the green dress) who lives in Maine. The last time I saw her was in May and I was definitely missing her. It was so strange unpacking my summer clothes from the Miami trip, then packing the fall clothes for the New England weather. Even though it was a bit chilly and it rained all day on Friday, I couldn’t help but stare at the gorgeous colors of the fall foliage as we drove to Boston. We went out dancing that night and had such a great time (as you can tell in the photos). I am always inspired by the curvy women when I visit other towns. It’s fun to see what the curvaliscious trends are in different parts of the country. For most of the trip I wore sweaters, skinny jeans, and UGG boots. Sorry, but that’s mandatory vacation gear for me. But, as you can tell I did dress up for the night out in a simple LBD and my Steve Madden leopard print pumps. And the striped cashmere eternity scarf I’m wearing was gifted by Marshalls. It’s soft, warm, and perfect for fall weather. After a long flight home, I made it back to L.A. safe and sound. I think I’m going to stay grounded for a while.
With all of my recent running around, I haven’t any time to really go shopping! I know! I’ve been super good when it comes to spending money I don’t have. It’s a serious problem…I know. I was even inches away from amazing deals at this Coach Outlet in Freeport, Maine over the weekend and I didn’t spend a dime! It was horrible! Well, now it’s time to drool over shoes…well…brown Steve Madden boots to be exact. I need a pair so bad. The brown boots I have weren’t made for my curvy calves! My mom bought them for me two years ago and I just can’t wear them. Sorry mom! Hopefully, she’ll read this and get some ideas!
If you follow me on twitter than you know I tweeted about this the other day. Forever 21′s extended sizes line

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Nordstrom anymore than I already do, they are in the midst of unveiling their own plus-size line.
“Nordstrom recognizes that plus-size women deserve more on-trend, in-store and online choices, and is pleased to announce its new plus-size brand with modern styling called Sejour. Sejour will be available exclusively in the Encore department beginning the first through second weeks of November. The brand will launch in two phases with the first roll-out in November, and culminate in the spring with our entire selection of styles.” -Nordstrom Press Release
Along with a couple of other bloggers, I was contacted by Nordstrom to review some of their new pieces. I am beyond honored to be involved in their new fashion venture.
The thing I love the most about Sejour is the fact that they are going to feature looks that are great for layering. This includes great fabric manipulation and fun textures like sequins, beading, and embellishments for the season.
Their pieces will go from weekend to work, evening to holiday, sizes 14W-24W, and 1X-3X, primarily in a curvy fit. The pricing will range from $28-$200. As you can see in the “Blogalicious 2010: What I wore” post I made sure to try the Rayon leggings and Drape Front Embellished Top right away. There are a few other pieces that I will review for you soon.
Make sure you keep an out for this new line headed to the Nordstrom Encore department nearest you!
Blogalicious Weekend in Miami was beyond anything I imagined. The women were smart, creative, and fabulous! I met so many great ladies, even from the moment I stepped of off the plane! We had such a busy weekend of sessions, that I didn’t have time to take proper outfit posts. It was a wake up early and go to bed late kind of weekend. Here are a few pics from that weekend with a description of what I wore. Oh and by the way, as you can see in most of the photos, I was having MAJOR bang issues! Ughhh!
This weekend I wore a few amazing pieces (above) that were gifted by
Above I mentioned Sejour by Nordstrom, it’s a new plus-size line. I am going to do a post on this line soon, but I just wanted to mention them and show you the two pieces I wore this past weekend. I wore their luxuriously soft Rayon Leggings and this gorgeous Drape Front Embellished Top (below) that was also gifted. I wish you could see the sparkle of this top. I paired it with Lane Bryant earrings and black skinny jeans from Old Navy.
This is an amazing top I found on the clearance rack at Macy’s. It’s by Rachel Roy and it was originally $99 and I bought it for $20! I was in heaven! The colors remind me of a sunset. I think it was meant to be big, because the tag say’s it’s a medium and it fit me. I wore it with my Torrid jeans and sandals. Loved it!
