Vintage Curves: The Plus Side of ModCloth

Where are my vintage clothing lovers? If you’re here, then you already know about ModCloth right. They offer vintage/retro inspired clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, and stuff for your home. They even have a vintage shop, but stuff sells out fast! I’ve known about them for a while, but was always bummed to find out that they didn’t offer plus sizes. Well, that’s certainly not the case anymore. I stumbled over there today researching a post for…

Cutey Charm Bracelets are Charming

Aren’t we always on the look out for affordable but chic jewelry? OK, I’m always on the lookout for affordably chic jewelry. And lately I’ve had this obsession with Trollbead charm bracelets. I blame my best friend. But, each bead adds up and it just gets expensive. I’ve found my solution with Cutey charm bracelets. Cutey, a UK line, is looking to bring you stylish, quality and easily customizable jewelry. They sent me the Oneiroi (£12.99)…

Bottoms Up

I’m so easily distracted! I was researching for one thing and decided to write about all of these cool pants, leggings, and skirts I saw online tonight. These are definitely not your every day bottoms. And they’re a great way to mix things up. We have ASOS Curve, Forever 21, Torrid, and City Chic pieces below. I’m kind of eyeing all of the different leggings and the shorts. Didn’t think there were would be shorts…

Inspired by Bill Cunningham New York, A Documentary

‎”Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life. I don’t think you could do away with it. It would be like doing away with civilization.” -Bill Cunningham If there’s one thing I’m passionate about it’s living life and doing what you love. Today, I watched a documentary based on New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham and I witnessed a passion unlike any other. And it’s not even just for fashion. His…

Lela Rose for Payless-Women's Barton Colorblock Bootie $64.99

10 Reasons I love Payless

I remember being a little girl and always shopping at Payless Shoe Source. I’m going to be honest, at that time the quality of the shoes weren’t that great, but they were affordable. And believe me we were always on a budget. Today, Payless is so different. You have designers like Lela Rose, Christian Siriano, and Isabel Toledo creating pieces. They are trendy and still affordable. Love it!

“Jockey Person to Person is designed for your life”

Did you know Jockey has a clothing line? Known for their underwear and basics, the Jockey Person to Person collection is fashionable and practical.

The pieces are not only comfortable, but they actually fit. The line does go up to a 3X and a lot of the…
