The Ballet Flat {Luxe Edition}

Flats by Kate SpadeFlats by See by ChloeIt’s no secret that I love a good bargain, but sometimes I love the finer things in life. Like a designer shoe. OK…I always love designer shoes, but I have to be realistic sometimes and tell myself that they are NOT good for the wallet. Instead, I just look and wait until one day I’ll have a personal shoe shopping account. Today, I’m kind of in the mood…

In Awe…Plus Model Magazine’s Swimsuit Issue

I am in awe…seriously. I had to stop, right in the middle of what I was doing, to write this post.For a lot of us, we’ve had to deal with being told that fat is ugly. And that we are not worthy of fashion, because we don’t fit the fashion industries mold. That’s total BS!As I was flipping through Plus Model Magazine’s Swimsuit Issue, I didn’t realize I could be affected like this. I was almost…

A JET and Sophia Outfit Kind of Day

Most of you know that I love the laid back L.A. style and this outfit is a perfect example of that. Torrid sent me the JET John Eshaya White Leopard Print Tank ($34.50) and the Sophia Jegging Regular length ($58.50). This was the perfect outfit for a day of shopping, eating barbecue, and more shopping. I’m always a fan of a flowy tank. Especially, when it has a knotted back where the straps meet. Now,…

I was really surprised when Torrid sent me their Floral Ruffle Tube Romper ($48.50). I don’t even think I would of purchased this for myself. Doesn’t it kind of look like a dress? I was happy there were no malfunctions while wearing it. And you have no idea how happy I was…

Another 90’s Fashion Trend?

We all know that denim comes in a lot of different washes. When I was a teen (showing my age LOL) acid wash was really popular.A few weeks ago, I went into a Forever 21 and saw a few pairs of acid wash jeans. You probably saw them. They were turquoise and pink. I can’t remember the other colors. Ever since that moment, I couldn’t stop thinking about them. But, I knew I couldn’t really pull…
