Do I look stoned?

Top: Ann Taylor Loft
Jeans: Macy's
Leopard flats: Dillard's

I have a scarf obsession...got this one from the Bealls Outlet for $2!

Earrings: Ann Taylor Loft

Bangles: some little jewelry place in High Point, NC

Do I look stoned because of the purple liner? Hubby thought so!

Rock star hair...

...5 pairs and I am now set...I think?

Hubby decided to take me out last night to dinner and some shopping (what a good guy!) and I came home with 5 new pairs...yipee!!! I think I am set for fall/winter...maybe...

"Stylish yet functional" as hubby calls them; these are going to double as my motorcycle riding boots.

I used to be into loafers during my preppy high school days...and it seems I have reverted back to the early 90's!

Another paid of loafers...super comfy too. Sometimes I need to be a bit more practical in my shoe selection.

I cannot wear red up by my face (since I have pink undertones) so since I love the color, I have to wear red as accents...I really am excited about these!

Ok, these are a totally new style direction for me. They were on clearance, super comfy, stylish and completely out of the ordinary for me. I took a chance and so glad I did.
Am I done shopping for shoes this season? Probably not...
Do I have an addiction? Well, I don' think I have a problem...:)

An Invaluable Tutorial...

If you love wearing a scarf, you must check out this tutorial:


Let's hope I don't choke myself out trying all of these...I have come close a time or two.

Pattern Mixing...am I the "Crazy Pattern Girl?"

I was out of town for a few days for work and among my travels, I popped back into a cute little boutique that I had visited last year. I was instantly attracted to this scarf because it was so quirky...and of course the love I have for dogs:

Cardi- Macy's
Dog Scarf- little boutique in Greensboro, NC
(Accessories & More- they are located in the Friendly Shopping Center)

Havin' a FAB hair day...this is what ZERO HUMIDITY will allow your hair to do!



I loved the weather in NC...for the sake of my skin and hair alone!

The Curvy Girl got some skinnies!!

I finally jumped on the "skinny jean" train and found these on super-duper clearance at Macy's 2 weeks ago...I think I did ok!

Cami and Cardi: Ann Taylor Loft
Skinny Jeans: Macy's

In trying to work with my new do', I picked up some heavy wax from Ulta and started to use that...it will be a learning curve for sure!

"You look very mature today"...

...this is according to my Mom. I am still not sure how to take that. Does she mean "mature" as in 85 years old OR does she mean "mature" like better-than-the-shitty-gym-shorts-you-normally-wear?

Pants: Ann Taylor
Cardi: Sears
Peep Toe Heels: Dillard's

Earrings: Dillard's
Necklace: wholesale jewelry show


As I am blogging this post, I am catching up on the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion...I am on the edge of my seat!

Hair science...

My new hair cut has been a bit of trial-and-error to find the right mixture of products...I was pretty happy with today's experiment which was a combination of Suave Root Lift and Amika Hair Oil:

Button down top: Ann Taylor Loft

My eye make-up sucked today so no pics!

My Newest Venture: Edible...but Enjoyable?

I started a new blog.

Edible...but Enjoyable?

Lately, I have been experimenting with all kinds of recipes...some are a hit and some are not. I started this comical cooking blog to share my recipe experiences and maybe get some new recipe ideas from my readers. I would really like to try some more international style meals so please feel free to comment or suggest something fabulous that YOU like to make!

Recognize the Curvy Girl? Piggy-backing on the Curvy Girl logo, my Dad whipped up this little number for me yesterday. I love her!

Feeling fly in some new jeans...yeah!

On the eternal quest for the "perfect" jean (does it really exist?), I picked these up at Macy's the other night. They are the Style & Co. brand and are a part of their premium denim line...but I got them for a steal! Thank goodness for 40% off the reduced price PLUS an extra 20% because I spend waaaay too much money at Macy's so I get all the fabulous coupons:

Top: Macy's
Jeans: Macy's
Platform heels: Dillard's
Belt: Macy's
Bracelets: World Market, Bauble Bar and Kohl's

Ring: H&M

Earrings: Steinmart
Rockin' my fresh new do' without waves today...
I am not so sure that turquoise shadow is the way to go w/ blue eyes. Magazines say  it's ok but I  am not sure...thoughts? Is it just this shade that does not work? HELP!?!?!?

...and today's blast-from-the-past song is...

Oh good...jean shopping...

Trying to dress a curvy body in denim can be tricky...here is why:

Not only is the front creepin' up on me but the jeans were soooooo looooong that I was up on my tippy-toes!

Another "curvy fit" that are creepin' up in the front...come on.

Not only were these a size larger than what I normally wear, but I don't have to tell you what else went wrong.

This "slimming" pair pushed all of my fat upwards...yeah, slimming my ass.

These would have worked if I did not have a gaping in the back that showed my underwear. Perfect.

Uh...
Well, shopping was a bust that day..
