In a Cobalt Blue kind of Mood

Ever since I wore that blue dress to the Full Figured Fashion Week runway finale, I can’t get the color out of my head.Now, it’s not just any kind of blue, it’s more like cobalt blue. It can easily transition into the fall season and looks good on pretty much anyone. Don’t we love that?You know I’ve said it before, but adding an accessory in a bright color like this really stands out. And it’s easier to…

The guys can even get in on this…

A Good Dress is Hard to Find

You know the saying…a good man is hard to find. Well, I’ve changed it around a bit. A good dress is hard to find.What do you have to do around here to find a dress that isn’t too short (butt hanging out) and too tight (my ribs are showing)? I will save all that for the bolder and more courageous curvy girls.I will stick to the classic, yet chic silhouettes with a fun print. Please for…

Bubbles & Bites with Gilt City & Hpnotiq Harmonie

I really do hate missing out on a beauty event. But, you all know I’ve been sick. I was so heart broken to miss the Bubbles & Bites party over at Benefit Cosmetic’s Santa Monica location.It was sponsored by Gilt City LA and HPNOTIQ Harmonie. I “heard” the lucky guests were pampered with mini makeovers as they sipped on delicious HPNOTIQ inspired cocktails and indulged in tasty sweet treats from the HPNOTIQ candy bar.Photo Credit-John…

Why Size Discrimination?

I’m VERY irritated with this so-called fashion industry, fashion scene, or fashion whatever. As a designer, you have the right to create whatever you like, in any size, and for any person. There are no boundaries to what you design or envision to be fashion. You can be as brave and bold or as simple as you want. There is an infinite amount of freedom to express who you are in your designs.

DefShop is Hip Hop & Streetwear

You’re curvy, you adore Hip Hop, maybe you skate, and you love Streetwear fashion. I knew you were out there.After spending time in New York City, I can definitely appreciate all types of fashion. Especially style that comes from the streets. I am so jealous of those who can actually pull it off. And now that streetwear had definitely gone retro, I’m getting flash backs just writing this.I was checking out Def Shop, a Hip…

Casually…Red, White, and Blue

Yes, you’re going to see a lot of red, white, and blue inspired looks as we get closer to this 4th of July weekend. I wanted to go a little bit of a different route to offer you some color inspiration. A lot of these pieces can be paired together or just worn alone. I chose a lot of casual pieces, because one…it’s summer…and two…it’s the weekend. And it’s going to be hot!I’m looking at…

Simply Yours and the Camisole

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in the plus size online-shopping world, it’s that there are quite a few options in the U.K. I used to live in Europe and at that time, I didn’t do any online shopping for clothes. Today, you can find almost anything online, including lingerie. Sexy! Sexy!Simply Yours is one of those U.K. lingerie brands. I actually owned a plus size corset of theirs and I loved it! They make the…

Before I knew it, the runway finale was upon us.The event was held in a hotel located in Times Square and I can tell you the energy at the event was ten times more than what was going on outside.I know I might sound like a broken record, but I can’t stress how…

China Glaze’s Turned Up Turquoise

I’ve been craving a turquoise nail color and I knew China Glaze would have what I was looking for. They always do. I found Turned Up Turquoise over at Ulta for $7. It’s little more green in real life. For some reason it was hard to get the exact color in the photos. Something really interesting about this color is that it dries matte. I used the China Glaze No Chip Top Coat to add…
