OOTD: Super Print Super Bowl

Oh yeah…yesterday was the Super Bowl. It matters if you’re team was playing. Mine wasn’t…blah. Don’t get me started. Next year my Denver Broncos will dominate…just you wait. Anyways…if I didn’t already lose you, this is what I decided to wear for this eventful Sunday.

We spent the day at the in-laws eating way too much. I knew this was going to happen, so I wanted to be super comfy. That’s where this printed Rachel Pally top came in (no longer available). I bought this at my second warehouse sale and it’s so comfy. It can also be worn as a tunic with leggings and it’s from the straight size collection. I was instantly in love with the colors and print. My jeans are from Levi’s Curve ID line. I’m a “Demi Curve” by-the-way. They are probably my favorite pair of jeans. They just fit me. Period.

I snagged up these sandals on Hautelook, from Nine West’s line Boutique 9. Got them for an amazing deal! Love amazing deals…just like these $1 earrings I got in downtown. Yay me!

What did you wear on Super Bowl Sunday?

The Beauty of a Brush

Every time I pick up this brush I feel inspired. The “Power” Paddle Brush by Sarah Potempa reminds us why we (and our hair) are beautiful. The words “Empowerment, Ambition, Strength, Beauty, and Love” are proudly displayed on the back of the brush. It’s a great reminder at the start of each day.

The Night of 2 Pairs of Spanx

Please Note: I do not look like Ashley Graham in my Spanx.
Please Note: I do not look like Ashley Graham in my Spanx.

I can’t believe I’m actually going to write about this, but I felt the need to share and maybe make you laugh for a moment. Especially after reading an article about actor Octavia Spencer on The Ellen Show, where she admits that she wears triple Spanx during award’s season. Triple?

Well, you remember that outfit post I did where I was wearing the Queen Grace dress? This is it, if you didn’t read it. Let’s just say it was experimenting time.

One of the reasons I wasn’t able to wear that dress earlier was because of the tight fit (my fault). My hubby had to literally zip me into that beautiful dress. Of course I was already wearing one pair of Spanx, but I still had that pooch we all love.

Yes, yes…I know there is a great shape wear debate. You either wear it or you don’t. I wear it proudly. And I firmly stand my ground. It won’t make me lose weight, but it will smooth me out. Anyways, I know a 100lb woman who wears Spanx! It’s not just a fat girl thing.

Back to my story…I still had the pooch. That’s when I thought, hey…why don’t I throw on another pair just to see how it looks. You know…just for sh*ts and giggles.

After a quick struggle, I had successfully pulled on another pair…aaaaand I couldn’t breathe. And don’t get me started on sitting down or eating. You should have seen me trying to get into my car. LOL! I don’t know how Octavia wears three pairs!

I called my friend and proudly admitted that I was wearing two pairs of Spanx. Her response…”You can do that?” Apparently.

At the end of the night, I had to peel myself out and finally…I could breathe. It was glorious!

Now, I’m wondering, are you a two or three pair kind of woman?

Is this even common? Am I alone? Inquiring minds want to know!

OOTD: Living Grey in L.A.

Wow what a day…I spent the entire afternoon in Downtown L.A. learning about the art, music, and history of Los Angeles. I kind of felt like a tourist in my own city. It was an amazingly beautiful day. The top is by Inspired and my boots are Dollhouse. I’m wearing Torrid’s Sophia Blue Rinsed Skinny Jeans. They fit perfectly and I love that the waist is the right cut. I’m definitely not a low cut kind of girl. Do you prefer a certain cut over the other?


TS14+ & Virtu January Styles

If you’re looking for a line with transitional pieces, going from fall to spring to summer, and are easy to layer then you really should check out Australian brands TS14+ and Virtu. Their January look books and style guides are filled to the brim with them. I’ve actually found a few things I wouldn’t mind owning. They’re all about making you feel good in the clothes you’re in. I can get with that!

OOTD: Out with the Girls

I had an opportunity to hang out with some of my girls this weekend. After a long day, I didn’t want to wear anything too complicated, but I didn’t want to wear sweats out either. I decided to go with this beautiful Blue Crepe Lattice Cold-Shoulder from Torrid. I even threw my hair up in a high bun.

I love the top, but after looking at these images, I feel like I should’ve chosen a smaller size. It’s supposed to have a flowy fit, but I think it’s a little too much for my shape. Now, this is something I’ve only recently noticed. I tend to buy clothes that are a little too big for me. I don’t know if it’s a mental thing, maybe my perception of myself is skewed. I’m in-between sizes, so if I go down a size it might be a little tighter, but if I go up a size it’s a little big. I always end up going bigger. That needs to change.

Regardless, it’s extremely comfy and the color pops. Loving this blue right now and the shoulders are so sexy! If you also notice, I should have paired this with more form fitting denim. It’s crazy because it looked fine in the mirror, but the images are bugging me. LOL!

Whatever…there’s nothing like a well-deserved lesson in fashion. Earrings are from Target, bracelets are from Lane Bryant, shoes are Steve Madden, and denim is from Torrid.

Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris’ Because You’re Worth It

We are in the midst of award season and this nail color is perfect! L’Oreal Paris’ Because You’re Worth  is an amazing gold. It’s part of the new Colour Riche collection and this color is part of the Iconic Muse color story (there are four).

Daring and elegant, the Iconic Muse isn’t afraid of a little risk and loves to make a strong color statement.”

It’s soft but has a beautiful sheen. People have been complementing me on this color since I applied it. It’s a perfect metallic shade. And it’s long lasting. I’ve had it on now for 4 days and there doesn’t seem to be any wear. Looks like I just polished them yesterday. With all my blogging, that’s a miracle. LOL!
