Finding the perfect bra is probably one of our biggest headaches. Especially, if you’re a curvy woman with a larger chest.
So, when I was contacted to try Bali’s Comfort-U Back bra I was pretty excited. This new line features the beautiful Helena Christensen and boasts about the straps and the back of the bra staying in place. You know I had to try it out.
They sent me the Flower Bali Underwire bra. I actually wore this bra on my birthday and I was quite surprised at how comfortable it was. The straps never fell down and the back of the bra never rode up once, I guess I can thank the wide side straps and U-shape for that.
I wasn’t spilling out all over the place either. The only issue I had was the actual shape it gave my breast. I guess it’s natural, but I felt like they had a little bit of a cone shape. I would prefer them to have more of a round form.
As you can see in the pics above, the quality of the bra was great. It’s a very basic white bra with a simple floral design. They have a lot of different styles if this one isn’t for you.
I am big on comfort and affordability when it comes to undergarments. The Comfort-U bras have suggested retail prices of $29 to $36. That sound pretty good to me!!

The winner is….
What an amazing birthday weekend! I am so blessed to have such a
wonderful husband, family, and friends.
I spent the first part of the day just being a bum. My hubby bought me some red roses (awwwwww). Later that night, we made our way to a cousin’s birthday party. They even sang happy birthday to me…it was too sweet. We partied until 3a.m.! I was paying for that this morning.
I got $150 worth of gift cards…which I can’t wait to use by the way. So excited to go shopping! Of course I’ll keep you updated on what I buy. My bff sent me a little birthday package. The necklace (left) I’m wearing in the pic was part of my gift and she also bought me these beautiful silver tear drop earrings. She’s the best!!
Today, we had a BBQ and we had some friends come over. We watched the Lakers and the Dodgers win! Yay! Now, I’m sitting here yawning every 30 seconds. I’m pooped! I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who sent me birthday wishes. It means so much to me. Thanks!!

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?
I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!
Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…
1.Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
I’m only familiar with the famous ones, and never been that into designer clothes but more designers bags! So…I like Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Miu miu and Chloé for example, because their bags are mostly simple, clean yet trendy…AND BIG! Love big bags!
2.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
3. If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
Some sort of wax strip that’s cut out with the shape you want for your eyebrows, I suck at doing my eyebrows, I’m to lazy to shape them, would be wonderful to have them done with just one pull. (if it only were that simple)
4. If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
Comfortable cute flats, leggings, cute dress’ and tops and my biker jacket and Denim Jacket. And it would be New York, still have a lot more to explore there.
5. Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?
I was flipping through my new issue of Elle, when I came across the “Elle Beauty Obsession” page. I fell in love with this pic! The nail polish is OPI’s Hong Kong collection “Jade is the New Black” and the lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in “Super.” I need the nail polish!! I found it on Amazon for $2.50!! I have to ask the hubby if we can fit this in our budget!
Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!
“It’s time for Dodger baseball!”
Yes…I am a Los Angeles Dodger fan and if you’re not one…I’m so so sorry. Lol.
This is me, yesterday, at the Dodger opener. It was a beautiful day. And of course we won!
As a curvy sports fan, its hard to find sports gear that fits. I am forced buy a mens medium or large t-shirt and we all know the quality of the mens shirts are not very female-friendly.
Today, I am a happy sports fan! I have found a few Dodger items in Plus Size (XL-4X)!! I love the touch by Alyssa Milano line. Too cute. There aren’t many options and some are a little pricey, but I guess it’s a start.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Dodger fan. They have other teams available…but they don’t really matter.
Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration.
