Leopard and Oxblood!

28 Oct

Today’s outfit of the day(actually last Friday’s) is one of my go-to Fall looks- skinny jeans worn with a blazer & cute top and sexy heels. In this case I wore a peplum top and my favorite strappy oxblood heels!  This outfit is of course a high-low mashup because I just don’t like it any other way!  Although I love my designer duds, It is a RARE occasion that I wear 100% designer because I love to mix it up! I almost always have something from Target, H&M or Forever21 in my ensembles.  I’m also quite aware that many fashionistas are on budgets and I really love knowing that my readers can always afford something from my OOTD posts!

I added a link below for the shoes as I always get flooded with questions about where to purchase them.  All other items that are currently available have links as well.

Have a great Monday- Journey.

Look For Less!!!! Valentino Rockstud Heels!

22 Aug

Hello hello! I’m here with a VERY exciting look for less!!!!! I have found a pair of heels that look almost identical to the fuchsia Valentino Rockstud pumps!  A little birdie named Emily who writes The Sweetest Thing turned me on to these pretty pumps!  I saw them on her and assumed they were Valentino Rockstuds because quite frankly-they looked just like them……turns out they are from Torrid- the store for full-figured fashionistas!  I didn’t even know they sold shoes!  After finding out the scoop on these, I quickly checked online only to find that had size 10 and Up:(  So I called my local Torrid store and they had more sizes!!!!!!!!!   I just had to share this with you all!!!!! Good luck finding your own pair!

Valentino Rock stud heels $945 available at Saks.  They come in a high or a low height!

Pink studded pump $44.50!!!!!!!!! and right now they ARE ON SALE FOR ONLY  $22.48!!!!!!!!  I mean…..it doesn’t get any better than that!   Whether you would never spend a thousand bucks on heels or  totally would and just want to test out the studded Torrid heels to see if you may want the Valentino’s later, these shoes are for you!!!!!

The Torrid version is a shorter heel but at this price who the heck cares!???!!!!! and furthermore, even if  I only get 3 wears out of these bad boys, that’s good enough for me!!!!

P.S. while I was at Torrid, I noticed they had the cutest bracelets although they were way too big for my wrist, but SPREAD the word to your full-figured friends, if they have a hard time finding bracelets that actually fit, they need to try Torrid!

H&M Campaign Starring Plus Sized Model!

21 May

In real life 24-year-old model, Jennie Runk is average sized, but in the modeling world, she’s considered plus sized.  The 5’10”  size 12/14 beauty is the star of H&M’s Summer swimwear campaign- the first for a plus sized model.  H&M does have a plus sized collection and uses plus sized models but they have never gone into bathing suit territory with anybody larger than a size 6.  Turns out- people like it and they like it a lot!!!! There has been a positive outpouring of support in regards to this latest campaign and that’s a step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.  Women come in all shapes sizes and it’s great seeing representation for all of us. Below are some images from the campaign.
