Style Trend: 1950’s Style with Dorothy Perkins

Ever since the television hit Mad Men came on the air, I’ve been eyeing all 1950’s fashion. Even Banana Republic has introduced a Mad Men inspired line. For a second, I’ll imagine I’m Christina Hendricks as Joan Harris. I really want a dress now! And I can’t buy from Banana Republic, because they don’t carry my size. Then I remembered Dorothy Perkins carried a lot of 50’s style dresses and they have sizes up to…

Parties, Friends, & Torrid

Yes! More outfits from my weekend at BlogHer. And these two are courtesy of one of my favorite brands, Torrid. They’ve really been stepping it up, in my opinion. Especially, in the quality department. And that’s something that goes a long way for me. If you’re going to spend the money, the piece has to last! Here I am sitting with my partner in crime, Cid from Cid Style File. We practically hung out all…

Paisley Meets BlogHer

On day 2 of BlogHer, I decided to wear this paisley Jessica London Printed Maxi Dress. First, let me apologize for the photos. This is what happens when you don’t bring your tripod. I haven’t done a mirror photo in a while. LOL. This dress, courtesy of Jessica London, got a lot of compliments. I think it was this chic paisley print. I really loved the color combination, especially the navy. And I know I can…

Ask Ivory…

Hi Ivory, I have a blue & white tye dye dress that I want to wear on a brunch cruise, but I’m style challenged on what accessories would look good. Please help!!!! -Tee I love yellow and blue together, so perhaps a yellow clutch? Silver bangles (tons of them; Ashley Stewart carries some really cute ones), large hoops and a chunky ring.

Disneyland Casual

Visiting Disneyland in summer, with a million people is not for the weary. That’s why I made sure to dress comfy and cool. I wore my Curve I.D.

I heart my jeans and these awesomely comfy Dolce Vita sandals I pickup up on sale at…

Size? What Size?

What is a true fashionista? We all have our own definitions, but one word I always come to is “unlimited.” A true fashionista has no fashion limits. She will try on anything, regardless of the what the label says. “What? The label say’s it’s a large? So, what! I like it and I’m going to see if it fits.” Actually I know a few who don’t even look at sizes. I thought of this yesterday,…

Handbags go Tribal

You can call it a tribal, aztec, or even southwestern print. It actually reminds me of a sarape. That’s a brightly colored mexican blanket or shawl, by the way. I remember having a blanket like this as a teenager, but that was in my anti-bright color days. So, it was  taupe, black, and white. Whenever I look at these, I feel like go to Tijuana and buying a few of those blankets. LOL. Ove the…

The Women with Control Giveaway

The debate of wearing shapewear continues. You either wear it or you don’t. I am very proud of my body and I wear shapewear. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Wearing it won’t make me loose 10 pounds, but it does smooth me out. With some women, that can definitely mean a boost in their confidence. We all know what it’s like to wear something we love and feel very comfortable in…
