Jennifer Hudson….Weight Watching

WOW. 80lbs lighter, Ms. Jennifer Hudson looks unbelievable. After revelaing her weight loss on an Oprah appearance, I was inspired. I gained 60lbs when I was pregnant with my daughter and so far I have only lost 20lbs of that.  My daughter is now 10 months old so I will think of Jennifer’s journey while I continue working on myself.  Personally I thought Jennifer was gorgeous before she lost the weight, but the clothes she has been rocking are PERFECT for her new body and she looks ecstatic to model them.  I love this story so much because it reminds me of my own weight loss struggles & accomplishments.  Jennifer Hudson puts such a “Smile” on the face of weight loss. She was able to shine beautifully when she was heavier and she still has the same warm, can-do attitude as a size 6.   Continue reading

Red Hot at The Oscars

It made my Sunday night to see RED on the Red Carpet of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. My top three picks at the 2011 Oscars all donned this hue and looked stunning.

  1. Jennifer Lawrence: Nominated for best actress in a leading role for Winter’s Bone.  I have to admit I had no idea who Jennifer Lawrence was until I watched the Oscars. Simply put; she is gorgeous.  This dress was my favorite. I am such a fan of the simple elegance this dress exudes. Continue reading

Forever 21 Expands to Plus Size

Plus-size fashionistas will soon be able to sport Forever 21 threads! For those who are fuller figured probably know that Forever 21 only carries S, M & L and go up to a size 10. The new plus-size line, Faith 21, launches May 1st, and will carry XL, 1XL & 2XL sizes. If you’re in that size category I would mark the calendar! It will be available at http://www.forever21.com and in select stores. I personally think Faith 21 will be a huge hit since the average American woman is a size 14.

Oh no JLO, NO!!!! Why did you have to go there? The curvy fashionista has commited a big NO NO… in my eyes at least. Here she was snapped in an airport in Tokyo Japan, sporting the new fad in fashion, the Harem pants. This style was, to my dismay, all over runways at New York Fashion Week. Continue reading

Shoe Trend Alert

For the past week or so I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect pair of shoes. I wanted an open toe bootie to welcome in the warmer weather that has been approaching. I was looking for something specific, nothing too high, comfortable, something I can dress up for a night out on the town, or dress down with a pair of jeans. As I was window shopping online I fell in love with Madden Girl Platform Booties on the DSW website. I love the slouchy front, the thicker heal and the platform front.maddenbootie

After going to all the DSWs (the store didn’t carry this shoe), Marshalls and TJ Max in my area looking for something similar, I didn’t really find anything that suited me. DSW has some great shoes on sale though, I found a pair of Michael Kors heels that were marked down 70%! Although they were so fierce, it was still not what I was looking for.

In the end I decided to just order directly from the DSW website the Madden pair that initially caught my eye.

But, while on this mission for the perfect shoe I noticed Continue reading
