I’m in a really big hurry this morning, but I just had to show you these adorable cat and elephant pieces from the jewelery line of the creative Betsey Johnson. Of course my heart belongs to vintage cat collection, but the elephants are too cute! This woman never runs out of ideas. What it must be like to live in her head. Anywhoo, enjoy the Betsey love!
Calvein Klein, Michael Kors, Rachel Pally, and Diane Von Fursteberg are only a few of the designers available on 365Hangers.com. This jewel of a sample sale site guarantees women’s designer labels at 70% ! That’s a steal, if you ask me. I love that they use models that represent different shapes and body sizes. And their sizes range from 0/XS to 16/XL. My friend just purchased a Marc Jacobs dress from them at Sassy City Chicks, for an amazing price. I was actually looking at this Rachel Pally design, it would make a great spring dress.

Maybe it’s the bright L.A. sun or the smell of spring in the air, but I have been craving white skinny jeans. It never fails, the trend of wearing white always pops up around this time.
Ashley Stewart has some really great white pieces to add to your closet. Being that it’s a basic color, there are so many combinations possible. And it’s an easy way to brighten up any outfit.
Something like this Off the Shoulder Smocked Blouse $29 (left) is definitely a versatile piece. It can be worn with jeans like the model, shorts, or capris.
I think adding something like a bright colored floral pin to a basic white top is so easy. I might have to get my hands on the white Cropped Denim Jacket $29 (below). I can see myself wearing it with a floral dress or tank dress and a cute pair of sandals.
Are you on the quest to find that softer and beautiful looking skin for those flirty spring dresses? Yes, it’s time to start thinking about that.
Don’t worry, Dove’s VisibleCare Body Wash has got you covered…literally, in the shower that is. They promise beautiful looking skin in one week! You know I had to try this out!
I am currently using the “Softening” body wash and it smells great, without being too fragrant. I love how it lathers up and it even feels silky on the skin when your washing your body. That’s always important to me with a body wash.
I can definitely feel the difference in my skin, it’s a loft softer to the touch. And my skin has a slight glow to it. It has to be their unique formula of NutriumMoisture™. It contains skin-natural building blocks to help improve your skin’s look over time.
Dove wants you to have radiant skin too , that’s why they’re giving away one bottle of their VisibleCare Body Wash to a Curves and Chaos reader!

It’s a great start to a lazy Sunday. I wanted to post this outfit before I got too comfy.
I bought this vintage top from Kori of Buxom Vintage for $8. You should def check her out, she specializes in plus size vintage. She was a vendor at the Curvy Revolution.
I’d love to turn this into some sort of crop top. But the embroidery around the neck, sleeves and trim is really unique. So, I’d hate to lose any of it. Should I just leave it the way it is?
The denim straight leg capri ($20) is courtesy of Just My Size. I couldn’t find them online, but I know they are a piece from their spring looks. There’s a little bit of stretch in the material, which makes them the perfect capri for my lazy day.

Many of you have come to me asking what to wear to a job interview. I will say, it really depends on the job. For a corporate position, you might not want to mess around. You should dress as professional as possible- without losing your personal style. Unfortunately, many businesses do rely on their employees appearance. That means they might want you to look “put together” for their clients. Here’s a little something I whipped up.
You can always find some of the best plus size womenswear from SimplyBe. Last year I did a review on a few of their pieces and I was very impressed with not only the quality, but the fit. Let’s just say I visit their site weekly.
Today I clicked on their site and I immediately wanted to bust out the sunscreen and go somewhere tropical. Their Vacation Shop is up and running and I can’t start planning my next vacation fast enough.
They have the basics needed like swimsuits, tank tops, maxi dresses, shorts, and even some sexy lingerie to spice things up while you rest in your cabana.
This Beach2beach swimsuit (right) caught my eye immediately. It even comes in two different lengths, for the taller ladies. Their sizes range from 10-28, which gives us curvy ladies quite a range of fashion to choose from.
What are your vacation essentials?
I’m in the mood for shoes! Inspired by this amazing, yummy, and delish shoe, the Starlet Stiletto from Alloy ($39.90), I had to go in search of the printed shoe.
And I’m not just talking about floral prints. I’ve also included stripes and the ikat/tripal prints. I can just imagine wearing a white sundress with a bold printed shoe. Dreamy…oops, back to the shoes.
Prints are seen in all shapes and forms this spring. Whether it’s on the upper part of the shoe, only in the straps, or even in the heel; prints have definitely grabbed my attention.
Plus Model Magazine’s April 2011 Spring Issue launches tomorrow, but I’ve got a sneak peek at the cover! It features the Ashley Stewart’s Coast to Coast Curves Model Search winner Wyinnetka. Isn’t she beautiful?
The issue also features a 5 page editorial spread featuring PMM favorite Mia Amber Davis, Marquita Pring, and a $100 gift card giveaway from Ashley Stewart. You definitely don’t want to miss that!
Today, I attended a luncheon at the gorgeous Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. I always feel so classy when I enter that place. That’s why I decided to wear this amazing Asymmetrical Black Dress courtesy of Julia from Buxom Boutique. I paired it with my Madden Girl pumps, black tights, gold hoop earrings, and a gold statement ring.
The asymmetrical neck gives this “little black dress” an edge, but with a 1950’s sillouette. The knee length hem is breath of fresh air in today’s world of mini’s. I wear a size 16/18 in dresses and this dress is a 3X. I really think someone in a size 22 could wear this because of the stretch in the material. It actually matched a blazer I had in my closet, you know just in case I had to cover up at the luncheon.
What I love about this dress is how easy it can go from business to casual. You could wear it to work, then change a few pieces around for an event or night out. I changed my earrings, added a belt, and my silver jeweled sandals. I know I am going to get a lot of use out of this dress. Thanks Julia!
