Shoe Fever: Zebra Print

Always inspired by shopping and my good friend Ivory, I had to feature a few pairs of zebra print shoes. It goes a little something like this… There we were in Soho shopping at Topshop, with Ivory on the hunt for a “must have” pair of platforms she saw online, but were sold out in her size. Sadly, when she found them, they didn’t have her size. She was a sad shopper. I will admit…

Mixed Messages?

It’s been a few days since I returned from New York (I miss you!) and I’m trying to catch up. You’ll notice I’ve changed the layout of the blog. I think this one is easier to navigate and easier on the eyes. I hope it works. Today, I’m catching up on all the recorded t.v. shows I missed while I was gone and yes, TLC’s Big Sexy is one of them. I really do love the idea…

Your First Look: Just As You Are

Here’s something you’ve probably said before…”Why can’t I find a coat that fits me?” Fall is almost here and you know that means chilly weather. You all know I love when it gets cold. Although, L os Angeles doesn’t get that cold, I still want a nice coat that actually fits me. This weekend I was in New York, for the first Plus Model Magazine blogger conference. It was so much fun!! We were getting…

Style Trend: Faux Leather Jackets

Although it’s scorching here in Los Angeles, I’m still thinking of and waiting for fall. I want to wear my City Chic faux leather a.k.a. leatherette motorcycle jacket. Faux leather jackets are hotter than ever and they come in a lot of different styles and colors. These are great for spring too! I will take one of each below. My favorite would have to be #1. Which one is your favorite?  Lane Bryant $189.95 Old Navy $49.94…

Just My Size Launches Belt Collection & Giveaway!

Looking for a belt that fits can be a pain in the butt, especially when you finally find one you like and it cost a lot more than what you wanted to spend. I have done this for years, that’s probably why I only have 4 belts. Don’t get me wrong, I do want to wear more belts. They can add so much to a look, all while helping to show off that curvy figure.…

Beauty Buzz: The Body Shop

 When you think of natural beauty products, you have to think of The Body Shop. They have been creating products with natural ingredients for years. All they want to do is “enhance your natural beauty and express your unique personality.” I’m all for beauty products with us in mind. And I love trying out new products with values like this. We believe there is only one way to be beautiful, nature’s way. I had a chance…

My Soles4Souls Fundraiser

Do I even need to explain how much I love shoes and how much I love buying shoes?Who knows how much I’ve spent over the past year!

Starting today until December 1, 2011, my goal is to raise $1000 for the non-profit organization, Soles4Souls. Soles4Souls® is one of the fastest-growing charities in North America.…

Nordstrom dress Sale

I was on one of my favorite shopping sites (of course) and I noticed a few dresses on sale at Nordstrom. These are casual dresses and they start at 50% off! I would like to go in the store and try them on, but my local Nordies doesn’t have a good Encore department. It’s all the way in the corner, like all the other plus departments. Sad isn’t it? I’m digging the Suzi Chin for…

Chaotic 4 Men: Ralph Lauren Big&Tall

When it comes to classic American fashion, you can’t help but think of Ralph Lauren. Whenever I do a search online for Big&Tall clothing,  his line always pops up. Yet, I don’t know many guys actually wearing it. Why not? This line carries essential pieces that can be worked into your wardrobe. This is great for you guys who hate shopping. This means less shopping, because you already have what you need!

Fruit of the Loom’s Fit for Me on TV

I don’t know why it has taken me this long to see these Fit for Me commercials! I want to send a big kudos to Fruit of Loom and their recent commercials and ads. They feature women with curves! I’ve written about Fruit of the Loom’s Fit for Me collection before, but had never seen these. As you know, I’m a big fan of self-acceptance  and self-confidence.  And we know how much the media plays a role in…

The Collar Necklace

I’m always looking for the next trend, this time I found one I really like! The neck enhancing collar necklace. And it’s exactly what it is, a necklace that is supposed to rest on your collar bone. I love all of these too, like always. Most of them are from Topshop…looks like I’m going shopping soon. Ooooohhh…I bet you can find a lot of these at vintage or thrift stores. My neck needs one…or two.…
