Yay!The sales kick off every Wednesday at noon and feature designers like Adrianna Papell, Calvin Klein, Seven7, Antik, and more. They not only offer plus sizes, but they…

Handbag Delight: Melie Bianco

Melie Bianco is a handbag line based out of Los Angeles and offers what they call “Affordable Luxury.” You won’t find anything over $100. I recently purchased one of their bags at the Sassy City Chicks event. It’s this amazing clutch that I’ve only used once and I can’t wait to use again. If you’re looking to add some color into your life with a handbag, just look up. Oh…and if you live in the…

The Shopping Diaries: Indecisive Shopper

Oh yeah that’s me posing in my awesome Curvy Divas Rock tee at the recent Kurvee event. And yeah I think I’m sexy…LOL. Ok, I was just being silly and had to take the photo opportunity. While I was at Kurvee, I realized something. I’ve become a really indecisive shopper lately. I didn’t know what to buy. I guess that’s a lot better than being an impulse shopper, right?What really confirmed it for me was…

Why? Oh Why? Collection by OSP!

There’s this little thing called Full Figured Fashion Week in New York City that I have to save up for. And I am TRYING not to do any shopping, unless it’s an emergency or something. And I have been TRYING to ignore the “Collection by OSP.” But it doesn’t seem like it’s working. I am in love a lot of their pieces, but especially with the Crepe de Chine Pants in this amazing Rain Forest…

ASOS Curve is Timeless

Everyone’s favorite line ASOS Curve…well one of my favorite lines…has been getting a little vintage on us. And I like it! You’ll see from the pieces below that they’ve been inspired by the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. My jaw dropped when I saw the Full Dress with Variegated Stripes. I’m kind of in love. I would’ve worn this if I went to Coachella. I will admit, I was a “wanna be” hippie child when I…

All Bangled Up!

Welcome to my new obsession, wooden bangle bracelet sets. Yes, it has to be a set. My friend Ivory has really inspired me to start wearing large bangle bracelets. She always rocks them! Today, I went shopping with my mom and she bought me an early birthday gift, which included a set from Avenue. She did buy me other stuff, but you’ll have to wait and see those. If you haven’t noticed, I have to…

Calling All Roberto Cavalli Fans

You asked and he delivered. You might have already heard that Roberto Cavalli’s White Collection is available on the Designer Plus Size Fashion web site Navabi. Just look at this gorgeous coat! Unfortunately, this girl can’t afford any of his designs. This coat is $1467.90, so instead I will sit here and dream about wearing it on the streets of Paris. A glass of wine in one hand and my Chanel bag in the other…sitting under the…

What I Wore: Hispanicize Conference

Last week I attended the Hispanicize 2011 right here in Hollywood. It was their 2nd Annual PR & Social Media conference. I had an amazing time networking and reconnecting with my friends.

There were four of us up there and I couldn’t help but stress how brands and companies are passing up opportunities to work with the…
