Ask Ivory…

Hi Ivory, I have a blue & white tye dye dress that I want to wear on a brunch cruise, but I’m style challenged on what accessories would look good. Please help!!!! -Tee I love yellow and blue together, so perhaps a yellow clutch? Silver bangles (tons of them; Ashley Stewart carries some really cute ones), large hoops and a chunky ring. I would prefer nude sandals with a heel or you can do wedges.…

In a Tiger kind of Mood

I’m back ladies! In case you didn’t know, I was in San Diego attending a blogging conference. BlogHer is the largest conference for women bloggers. There are over 3,000 women from all over the world.

Torrid, Jessica London, Ashley Stewart, and Sonsi supplied me with clothes and accessories for the…

Disneyland Casual

Visiting Disneyland in summer, with a million people is not for the weary. That’s why I made sure to dress comfy and cool. I wore my Curve I.D. Levis, this  new Free People top, and my new Dolce Vita sandals. The top is so soft and flowy. You can’t tell, but the back of the top is longer. I heart my jeans and these awesomely comfy Dolce Vita sandals I pickup up on sale at…

Size? What Size?

What is a true fashionista? We all have our own definitions, but one word I always come to is “unlimited.” A true fashionista has no fashion limits. She will try on anything, regardless of the what the label says. “What? The label say’s it’s a large? So, what! I like it and I’m going to see if it fits.” Actually I know a few who don’t even look at sizes. I thought of this yesterday,…

Handbags go Tribal

You can call it a tribal, aztec, or even southwestern print. It actually reminds me of a sarape. That’s a brightly colored mexican blanket or shawl, by the way. I remember having a blanket like this as a teenager, but that was in my anti-bright color days. So, it was  taupe, black, and white. Whenever I look at these, I feel like go to Tijuana and buying a few of those blankets. LOL. Ove the…

The Women with Control Giveaway

The debate of wearing shapewear continues. You either wear it or you don’t. I am very proud of my body and I wear shapewear. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Wearing it won’t make me loose 10 pounds, but it does smooth me out. With some women, that can definitely mean a boost in their confidence. We all know what it’s like to wear something we love and feel very comfortable in…

Let’s be friends.

Who wants to be my friend? Anyone? Fine! Then you’re not got getting a friendship bracelet from me.  I’m sorry but that’s the new rule around here. LOL. OK…that’s really not the rule, but you should grab one for you and your BFF. I bought this Lauinger bracelet from Aldo yesterday. I kind of feel like I’m 12 again. I only plan on wearing them with a casual outfit. Wait…did I just by myself my…

Style Trend: The Kimono

The Kimono, a traditional Japanese garment, has always inspired fashion trends. Kimono actually means “a thing put on.” And derives from ki “wear” and mono “thing.” Just a little fashion lesson for ya. It’s normally a long length robe, with wide sleeves and wide sash at the waist. And it was a definite inspiration for these pieces I found below at Style369.com, Evans.co.uk, and DorothyPerkins.com. They feature the the wide sleeves and some even have a sash…
