I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately…like a lot. In fact, I’m planning to go out of town this week. September has been a busy one, and October doesn’t look to be any different. In fact, I’ll be traveling to Houston next month for the Latinos in Social Media National Conference(LATISM 2012)! I can’t wait! Read more
Ohhhhh Fashion’s Night Out…you were an interesting one. The Beverly Center (right around the corner from my house) was the scene and the FNO events were on everyone’s mind. Of course, I was late…but I made it just in time for the fashion show. The mall was packed and I realized I forgot my camera after I entered the parking structure. All of my pics are courtesy of the trusty old Blackberry. Read more
Are you one of the many who can’t decide if you’re going to head out tonight for Fashion’s Night Out (FNO)? There’s so much going on like the start of NYC Fashion Week, the President’s speech at the DNC, and MTV Video Awards (to name a few). Or maybe you just don’t want to deal with the crowds. If you fit in any of the above categories, I have the solution for your FNO problems! Read more

Who doesn’t love shopping? Really? The Full Figured Fashion Week “Curves In The City” shopping event was pretty much what I needed at this point. I snatched up a beautiful Queen Grace dress for $34! In my world, that’s pretty exciting!
Vendors sold clothes, jewelry, beauty products, and accessories. I even got a bra fitting by Cacique, which you should get every 6 months by-the-way. And don’t get me started on the cake pops I devoured courtesy of MYNT 1792-they definitely have my attention right now.
Of course, I was snapping away…here are more pics!

If you didn’t know, I once sold designer sunglasses at Nordstrom. It was probably one of my favorite retail jobs! Hellooooo…I got to see the styles before anyone else and I got an employee discount. It didn’t get any better than that. My wallet didn’t like it so much, but I loved it. Now, I lust after designer glasses like Gucci and Fendi. Many people don’t understand the love for a great quality pair of sunglasses, but I do. The craftsmanship and quality is a million times better and if you take care of them then they’ll last a lifetime.
I went over to Nordstrom.com and picked my favorites for this summer!
Which pair are you lusting after?
I’m not going to lie, I’ve always wished Everything But Water sold plus sizes. For so many years, I was just like you walking past their store in the mall and NEVER entering. Well, we don’t have to worry about that anymore!
“The largest retailer in swim and resortwear in the US is proud to announce the availability of plus size collections from Becca Etc By Rebecca Virtue, Sorella Swim and Michael Kors nationwide in-stores and online!”
I was so happy when I read that! LOL! I know I’m a dork! And I didn’t know they also sold accessories!! They really do have “Everything But Water!” I was sent a Sorella swimsuit and I looooooove it! Just in time for summer!
Check out their selection of plus sizes here and let me know what you think!
