Fashionista Offspring!


The oldest offspring mixes cheap and expensive with a Limited too top (T.J. Maxx)  and a Marc Jacobs skirt (Loehmann’s, N.Y. find).  The leggings/stockings are IISLI (Loehmann’s, N.Y.) that happened to match exactly.    The boots are from Nordstrom’s (Phipps Plaza, Atlanta).  Sunglasses (Bealls outlet).

The baby diva is wearing a faux fur coat with pleather belt (my boutique, last season), Black suede boots (T.J. Maxx),  Hello Kitty watch (N.Y. street vendor). 

Sunglasses(two seasons ago, my boutique).

Yes, these are my girls working at the boutique and dressing mannequins.  The baby diva chose the outfit and accessory and is clearly directing her vision.   OK!

’til tomorrow people!


Lazy sweater day!


Today I was literally, exhausted.  Those plus mannequins are heavy!  So, because of my lack of energy, I decided to wear jeans and a sweater.  Comfort was important.  I found my Navy Magaschoni sweater and paired it with Ashley Stewart dark jeans and the boots.  I purchased the Magaschoni sweater at Nordstroms at 75% off of $298.00.               It’s really a Misses XL, but it stretched so I went for it. 

My accessories were on the softer side today.  Peach color freshwater pearl necklace with a sterling silver pendant and the matching bracelet.  The bracelet has four rows of freshwater pearls with medallion charm that matches the necklace.  I purchased it at T.J. Maxx of course!  The ring was purchased on vacation in Hawaii. 

My girl, Yoly, said she will post some time this weekend.  Look out for her!  The girl knows her hair!

Hasta manana peoples!

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.
