Casual Sunday


Today I was having a bad hair day again.  I had to borrow my hubby’s hat, from Jos. A. Banks.  The silver bracelets and ring are by an Israeli designer found at T.J. Maxx.  The Tag watch was a bargain find at  This is one of my favorite dresses.  It is soooo comfortable and doesn’t hitch up the thighs when your moving.  Also, although it is a soft fabric, I don’t need to wear constrictive undergarments(a girdle) or spanx.  It’s made by Marina Rinaldi, one of my favorite plus designers.  She’s expensive but her pieces last a lifetime.  The stockings are walmart footless tights and finished with the cowboy boots.

‘Til tomorrow!

Warm and Toasty!


For some reason, I received a lot of compliments on my outfit today.  I think it’s because I rarely ever wear a dress and my knees were showing.  I prefer pants, since I hate panythose but I found these footless tights at walmart and wear them with socks.

I have to say 90% of the time I’m wearing a hat, even though it was my new year’s resolution to start taking care of my hair.  It was too cold today, snow in Atlanta, so I had to pull out the woolies. 

I love, love, love accessories, specifically rings, bracelets and earrings.  I’m Jovanna from the Bronx, so I need the huge, obnoxious hoops.  My bracelets, I was a little tame today because I had to work in the store, are usually 10 or more.  Once again, Jovanna from the Bronx, how could I not have silver bangles? My ring is sterling silver from Israel.  I have found the best sterling silver at T.J. Maxx.  My huge fingers and wrists don’t always allow me to purchase from other stores.  T.J. Maxx always has something in my size. 

The wool grey wrap coat was purchased at T.J. or Marshall’s. The hat is from my store.  Dress is from Ross and the cowboy boots, wear them everyday, from a western shop.

‘Til tomorrow!

V magazine’s Embrace of Plus

Crystal Renn, author of Hungry and supermodel for all things Curvy,  rocked             V magazine opposite your normal, anemic model.  The bitch is fierce!  She can outmodel any House.  My favorite pose is on the right, with the Versace top and the Proenza Schouler skirt.  All the right angles and still working the curves.
