The Great Pumpkin

When I opened my Stitch Fix box this month, I saw this top and thought to myself, “There is no way I’d ever wear that color.” But after experimenting a little with different outfit pairings, I settled on my distressed denim jeans and these great fringed shoes I scored from

The “It” Color for Fall

Olive-colored clothes. I equate it to trying to cook an artichoke for the fist time; you love it, but you just don’t know what to do with it. And once you unlock its possibilities, you can’t get enough of it! That’s how I felt about this amazing fall hue when I got my hot little hands on these Juicy Couture jeans from Kohl’s.

If the Shoe Fits?

I love a great, sexy heel. But let’s be honest, most shoes that have any ounce of sex appeal are sometimes the most uncomfortable. I have incredibly wide feet. But wearing a great heel doesn’t stop me. I refuse to let my wide tootsies get in the way of looking good!

Holidays on my Mind……

Oh, the holidays. I remember shopping in Costco last year in mid-September and I couldn’t believe that the artificial Christmas Trees and holiday lawn blow-ups were already out and ready for sale. I thought to myself, “Can we just get through Halloween before we have to think about the holidays?” A lot has changed in one year. Now when I look at holiday decorations for sale in September, I want to find the store manager and scream in his or her face and ask them,

Falling for Fall Shoes!

I love everything about fall; the beautiful foliage, the crisp air, football, pumpkins and SHOES! Shoes are like a loyal friend; they are always there for you through thick and thin (literally!) I love the shootie trend this season.

Putting a Stop to Fat Shaming

I’ll never forget the first time I was called fat. The year was 1984 and I was walking to my locker in middle school. I remember feeling like a million bucks that day. My mom had just taken me to the Esprit flagship store in San Francisco and I was sporting my new diamond multi-colored sweater with my teal cords and my ankle boots. They had just announced the winners of the 8th grade polls and I had won “Best Looking” and “Best Body.” As I opened my locker a piece of paper dropped to the ground and to my horror, I was staring at a note with big black letters that read,

Stitch Fix for the Curvy Girl

Believe it or not, I absolutely despise shopping malls. In fact, it is rare for me to walk into a brick and mortar store. Living in California, the traffic (especially in shopping center parking lots) has become a stressful, daunting task and I just can’t do it anymore. If I do shop at a store I typically get there right when it opens on a Saturday morning to avoid the crowds, or I shop at smaller boutiques in my local area. I do most of my shopping online but even that becomes a daunting task if something doesn’t fit right. Stores don’t make it easy to return items since you have to pack up your returns and ship it yourself.
