OOTD: A Night with Salt-N-Pepa

When I was in elementary school, I was in cheerleading and we put together a dance routine to “Push It” by Salt-N-Pepa. So innapropriate, I know! LOL! I’ve loved them ever since. Last night, I had the opportunity to attend a launch party for McDonald’s new Chicken McBites and guess who was performing? Yes!! Salt-N-Pepa!! I was too excited!!

I didn’t know what to wear, then I remembered I had this jumpsuit from Torrid in my closet (not available). I threw on these heavy earrings from Forever21, ring from Torrid, and clutch from Dama Handbags. It was an awesome night. I even recorded a performance of “What a Man.” It’s at the end of the post. Are you a Salt-N-Pepa fan?

Style Trend: Polka Dots

It’s polka dot time again! Although the black with white dots color scheme is the original, you’re not limited to just those colors. Let’s get a little adventurous and try something a little different. You can find polka dots in lots of different color combos and sizes-from tiny to big. And if you’re one of those that doesn’t like to wear prints, you can grab an accessory like a shoe, scarf, handbag, and even an umbrella. No excuses!

Beauty Buzz: JAFRA Makeup Remover

I’m one of “those” girls that hates to take off their makeup before bed. Yeah…yeah…I know. I especially, dislike trying to remove eye makeup. I can never find a remover that is gentle enough and does its job.

Little did I know, the answer was under my nose the entire time. I was gifted a bottle of JAFRA’s Makeup Remover for Eyes and Lips ($12) last year and forgot all about it. I don’t know what I was thinking. Maybe it was hiding from me?

This is one of the best makeup removers I’ve ever tried. It’s so amazingly gentle and it does it’s job. It doesn’t burn or irritate my eyes and has the lightest scent. It’s made with Cucumber Extract, which soothes, and Macadamia Nut oil, which conditions. And it’s not just for your eyes, you can use it on your lips too. I guess I don’t have any more excuses to not remove my makeup.


New Plus Size Fashion Show on TLC?

If you read my post  Mixed Messages you know how I feel about TLC’s show What Not To Wear. This show features co-host Stacy London, a fashion expert who tells women what they should and shouldn’t wear.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, London got the green light for eight episodes of a new fashion series. It’s untitled at the moment, but the article states it will feature husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan. They own plus size boutique Lee Lee’s Velise in Brooklyn, New York.  The show will revolve around the boutique and the customers.

A lot like What Not To Wear, the owners will work on making over their customer’s wardrobes and offering plus size fashion advice.

I’m always worried about how these shows will portray plus size women. Sometimes these networks edit the show to be a lot more dramatic than it really is. You know what I’m talking about, right? Let’s hope this shed’s a positive light on plus size women and  fashion.

OOTD: Casually Denim

I can always count on my good friend Ivory for inspiration. If you haven’t had a chance to check out her blog ( you’re missing out. She’s fashionably fearless. Love her…if you read my blog then you know I mention her a lot. Yesterday, I saw her wearing a denim jacket and it reminded me of the one I had sitting in my closet.  I picked this one up at Forever 21 months ago and haven’t had a chance to wear it. And since it was a gloomy day here in L.A. I wanted to wear something comfy and casual. I’m wearing a H&M tunic underneath with my Sejour leggings and Dollhouse boots. The scarf is an oldie from Gap. It was a great outfit for spending time with the family and watching football. 

Wanted: Oversized Sunglasses

Sunglasses + me = Love. I adore them and they are one of my favorite accessories. I was doing what I do best…online window shopping on a Saturday night and I ran across a few pairs that really caught my eye. And they all happened to be oversized. In a Jackie O kind of way of course. But, I was watching Scarface and Michelle Pfeiffer was rocking them too. Loved her style in that movie! Anyways, back to the sunglasses. I can already see myself wearing them this spring and summer with my favorite maxi dress. It’s time to find that perfect pair.

Do you see yourself wearing oversized sunglasses?

Anna Scholz…what are you doing to me? You’re so fabulous and these latest images from her Hippie Chick collection from Anna Scholz Black Label Spring/Summer 2012 only prove it. I’m dying over here! I’ve always loved her use of prints with a feminine touch. And this collection is a perfect example of that.

Hippie Chick is “down-to-earth girliness with a sophisticated twist.” I agree. You will find maxi dresses and tunics in colors and prints for almost everyone. I will admit I’ve only owned one of her maxi dresses, but it’s so amazingly…amazing…that I just might have to splurge and grab something from this latest collection. Take a look for yourselves…what do you think? I can’t decide which one I want…

Stop it! It’s only Thursday.That means you only have one more day until the weekend. Woohoo! I found a few bags that I thought could possibly “brighten” your day and push through to tomorrow. And since I’m working on being more adventurous fashionably, these bags are definitely knocking on the door. I always stick to black bags. Hopefully these will serve as inspiration. Besides, there’s nothing like adding a little color to your day!

FYI…LOVE this first bag, it’s by Donald J Pliner! Hot!

OOTD: The Grace Dress

The minute I laid eyes on the Queen Grace Collection sketches, almost 8 months ago, I knew it was something special. Then I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing woman behind the brand in New York City during Full Figure Fashion Week. Marina is such a genuine person. She’s amazingly sweet too!

I told her I loved the “Grace” dress! It’s that edgy LBD I’ve always needed. My eyes lit up when I saw her designs come down the Full Figure Fashion Week runway. A few weeks later, she sent me the “Grace” dress…my fashion dream come true. The dress comes in two different trims-synthetic leather and satin. I wore the satin-trimmed design at the L’Oreal Paris 40th Anniversary cocktail party in Beverly Hills.

This was one of those “fits like a glove,” I even had the hubby help get me into it. LOL! It was the perfect dress for this night.

Thanks Marina! xoxo


An Eye for Mint

Are you ready for spring? There are a lot of great trends coming our way. One trend that’s really caught my eye would have to be pastel colors. These colors are like a pale version of your favorite colors. Some people usually think of pink or yellow, but this one is a pale version of green. It’s mint and it’s one color that really stands out to me. I saw this amazing nail polish and a pair of heels the other day and I can’t get the color out of my head. I’m already trying to figure out what I’d wear with it. Oh great…now I’m craving mint chocolate chip ice cream. LOL!

Will you be wearing mint this spring?
