I am now just realizing that I need more rings in my life. After wearing the big sparkly one I bought at Aldo Accessories I know I need more! Call it a budding obsession with statement rings.
But, everyone should have at least one statement ring. If you don’t, then you have no idea what your outfit is missing.
In fact, while doing a little bit of ring browsing online, I came across a few rings that caught my eye. Rings that need to be on my fingers soon!
The Abstract Cut Out Ring from Topshop ($20) is HOT! Which one is your favorite?
If you’re like most fashionista’s, then you can’t wait for tonight’s red carpet arrivals at the award show of the season, The Academy Awards. Also known as “The Oscar’s,” this is the king of all red carpets.
The only celeb I’m looking forward to is Christina Hendricks. I love how she rocks her curves! But, besides that, I always look forward to what the trend will be on the red carpet.
If I was going, I’d die to represent in this Alexander McQueen Kimono Gown, but with the $8,655 price tag, it seems very unrealistic. That and it doesn’t come in my size. So, I stick with what I know. Gowns that are available in a wide variety of sizes.
I will admit, I’ve never worn or tried anything from eDressMe, but I am curious. All the gowns below are available up to a size 24 and they do have a plus size selection.
If anyone has ever used them, I’d love to hear alllllll about it. I’d def consider any of the gowns below, why not add some color or sparkle?
What do you think? What would you rock for your Oscar look?
I’m all about being inspired today. In fact, the immediate second I saw these delicious Leo Platform heels from Alloy ($46.99), I knew I had to write this post.
Leopard is always in style, but I say we venture out of our fashion comfort boxes and go a different route with black and white leopard print.
Now, if you’re already in possession of black and white leopard print, yay! for you. But, I’m not and I think these would jump start my collection.
Ok, I don’t know about a collection, but grabbing a few pieces here and there can really add some “oomph” to any blah outfit.
What do you think? Are you feeling this black and white leopard print? What pieces do you already own?
I have feet issues. When I say feet issues…what I really mean is…I have feet in high heel issues. Finding a comfortable heel that is also on trend is still really hard to do. That’s why I get stuck with feet that hurt.
While I was in Las Vegas last weekend, I did a lot of walking. So much, that when it was time for evening events I was dreading putting on my shoes for the night. Who’s with me?
I can’t be the only shoe lover out there that suffers for the sake of beautiful shoes!
Every single night in Las Vegas, all I could think about was the pair of Dr.Scholls For Her “Fast Flats” sitting at home. This are great for the end of the night, when you just can’t do a pair of heels anymore. Why didn’t I bring them? I’ve used them a couple of times, when I remember to grab them. They came in especially handy when I was in Miami as we walked from the club, back to the hotel.
Have you ever used Dr. Scholls For Her “Fast Flats?” Are you even interested in trying them?
Thanks to Madison Plus for using this photo of me in their “The Curvy Revolution Fan Looks” post on their blog The Dish. When I saw it, I realized I didn’t have a clear pic of my outfit from the runway finale night.
You can’t tell, but I struggled with my hair that night, so I just bunched it up as a side bun. Wasn’t sure if I liked it, but the style is growing on me. My earrings and ring are from Aldo Accessories (buy one get one 50% off).
The dress w/embellished belt is from Forever 21+, of course it’s not on the web site. The length was perfect and it was very comfortable. I just had an issue with the opening in the back, which was a little too low, my bra strap was showing and the belt kept moving around like crazy. The shoes are my oldies but goodies Jessica Simpson patent leather platform pumps. They’re my “go-to” shoe.Once again, thanks to Madison Plus for the pic!
Ever since the Lane Bryant fashion show in Las Vegas, I can’t stop thinking about the Cacique bras that hit the runway. Talk about hot!!
The colors, the prints, and the styles really do make a curvy girl feel sexy underneath their clothes. Even the new plunge collection is daring us to dress sexier. Imagine the tops you can wear with it.
And with all Cacique bras at Buy One Get One 50%, there’s no reason to not buy that underwire, padded, no wire, or t-shirt bra for yourself. Look at all the options below!
The month of “LOVE” is almost over! Can you believe it? And you know I always save the best for last around here.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a Beauty Buzz feature and hosted a giveaway for KleanSpa. Here’s the original post. In case you were wondering KleanSpa products can be found in salons and stores throughout the nation. If you love creating your own scents and live in the Los Angeles area, then I would recommend attending their monthly Blending Bash. At the Bash, you will personally work with Jennifer (the owner) to create your own signature fragrance.
I attended one last month and it was so much fun! I went with Nik and Denise at the Burbank location which is inside an amazing boutique called MindfulNest. I think most of the night we spent shopping, drinking champagne, and choosing the oils for our scents. I created Chaotic Fruit, which consists of watermelon, pina colada, mango, and cucumber melon.. It smells so yummy.
Here’s a little video I took:
Where do I even start? First of all, I want to thank Lane Bryant for the VIP pass to The Curvy Revolution. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have had such an amazing experience.
On the final day of the convention, I finally ran into NettaP, one of my favorite bloggers. Love that girl!
Then after getting lost, I attended a Lane Bryant panel session with the VP of Marketing, Jay Dunn. It was a very informative look into the world of Lane Bryant. Mr. Dunn made sure to remind us that it’s not about age, but about your attitude. I love that philosophy especially when it comes to fashion. He gave us a few insights on keeping LB on trend, their models, and what is in store for them in the future.
After the session, I went to dinner with my girls and then I ran back to my hotel to get ready for the runway finale. I bought this grey draped dress with an embellished belt from Forever 21+. My earrings and ring were from Aldo Accessories, and I wore my black patent leather Jessica Simpson platform pumps.
As I found a seat, I pulled out my camera, only to realize I left my batteries charging in my hotel room. I was so MAD! Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone to take photos. So, until LB releases their images, your stuck with cruddy cell phone images.
Although the first half of the finale was awesome, I was really looking forward to Lane Bryant’s finale. I found a seat next to Sara of Bombshell Beauty (who is awesome btw). We all sat there anxiously waiting for it to start. Little did we know, the stunning Ashley Graham would open the show. Take a look of the really poor quality video I took with my phone (below).
After the runway show, I finally met Aimee and Erica from Madison Plus and I snapped a photo with Ashley Graham.
Then we made our way to the after party. I had a powerful conversation with Jay Dunn about LB using models who are size 16 and up. I hope my pleading made some kind of impression. I also had a chance to meet and chat with Robert Rutkauskas, senior Lane Bryant designer. I then introduced myself to a few of the LB models, including Lizzie Miller. The night is one I will remember for a very long time!
I will say this…beyond the “behind the scenes” drama (that is not worth putting on my blog) I was really glad to have met the Lane Bryant team and the City Chic team. And the time spent with my girls is worth so much more. Thank you to all who made this an amazing weekend!
Day 2 of The Curvy Revolution was all about meeting the vendors at the Expo. I know there are so many amazing products and brands out there for the curvy woman.
I even had the opportunity to get a free bra fitting by Lane Bryant. I found out I’ve been wearing the wrong bra size! What? No wonder I’ve always been uncomfortable wearing under wire bras. Now, I know my correct size and my “girls” will be a lot happier. Maybe I’ll even buy the new Sateen Convertible Plunge Bra. Go get your free fitting today!!
Here’s what I wore:
Sweater: TJ Maxx
Tunic: Abrstract Print Twist Neck Tunic (courtesy of Lane Bryant)
Leggings: Sejour (Nordstrom)
Bracelets: Courtesy of Lane Bryant
I got a lot of compliments on the tunic. I love the colors and once again the soft material. Chic and comfy! I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. I also wore my favorite leggings by Sejour, they are amazing. Now, let me tell you about the boots. They are very nice to look at but NOT AT ALL made for comfort. I wore them all day and I did a lot of walking; today my legs are aching and my feet hurt. I definitely need some cushioning in there.
Back to the vendors…I met a lot of inspiring curvy women yesterday. I bought a vintage top from Kori at BuxomVintage.com, she has an amazing selection of vintage pieces. Amanda Bennett of BennettsBoots.com came all the way from Australia to show her amazing line of wide calf boots. FYI…they are made from the same leather Prada uses. You’ll see them on Curves and Chaos pretty soon.
I picked up a few samples of PSST (Put Shorts Straight Today). I was so in love with this product. It’s a very simple and convenient way to stop your shorts from bunching up between your legs. I love it!!
The women from Curvy Divas Rock were so cute! I bought one of their tees (below) and I can’t wait to wear it. Because duhhhh…we do rock! I honestly loved meeting each and every person yesterday, it show the passion they have for the curvy community. Very very inspiring!!
