Honestly, the best part of my dayjob for me are the tradeshows. I love meeting new people and love sharing what I do! I'm a freak, huh? *laughing*

And, lately my #1 go-to piece is my Elle Boyfriend blazer I scored at Kohl's a while back, freaking amazeballs!!! And, you can't go wrong with a Lane Bryant sequin tank and necklace. sigh. delightful.

Do you have your boyfriend blazer yet? If so, where did you get it...I'm on the lookout for another fabulous one....maybe even in white?! I LOOVEE white. Let me know ladies!

mandy's 30 - let's party

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Sunday, November 28, 2010

There's nothing better than throwing a 30th Birthday Party for one of your best friends. This one was particularly fun since the entire journey was a surprise to her! PLUS! I was asked to be Mandy's stylist as well, makeup/hair/clothes etc. MY DREAM. I love this stuff. Of course I squealed and said Yes like a millionaire was asking to marry me.

After one of the most complicated shopping trips ever, and around 6 stores later, we finally had the perfect outfit picked out. Mandy is an enviable size 12/14, and was EASY to dress.  See below for her final outfit details.


Starting the night off with a surprise pedi/mani trip.


Since it was a surprise, poor Mandy's toes were left in the cold on the walk back to the hotel. What better than some ice cream in 30 degree weather?  We actually were just bribing the B&J guy to let us use the phone.

Then, my job began! I got the funniest 30th birthday kit - thus the super cool glasses and hat and jazz.

Before                                                                              After



LOVE it! Her only request was - "not expected" - would someone expect me to wear this? well...this is NOT expected for Mandy Allen! :)

Birthday Outfit Deets:
Tank - Old Navy, Jacket - Charlotte Russe, Tights - Macy's, Shoes - Ross, Accessories - Charlotte Russe

Looking much better for the night ahead. I got ready in about 15 minutes flat! I wore my trusty
BEST Little Black Dress Ever - from swakdesigns.com.



Some inside joke. Her face....then my face... LOL





These glasses rocked! the accessory of the night.

seriously too much fun. SUCCESS. cheers to 31 soon kids.

Yes! Finally I can break out my hats and fancy coats for fall/winter. I'm naturally very warm blooded, so I HATE the heavy coats that restrict me, I will almost always opt for the 3/4 sleeve...since honestly I just need to be warm enough to make it from the car to the building....right?!

And, with the cold wet weather, comes the frizzy angry looking hair - thank GOD for hats!! And, thank God for Target - oh lala so chic.

So, to celebrate the cold weather, here are my two favorite pieces. Hat from Target, and the coat is from Missphit. If you don't know about Missphit, you NEED to know and love them. Honestly, my favorite thing is the fashion and fit. They know style, and they know a big girl's body. You can even shop online. www.missphit.com. In fact, I'm shopping for my NYE dress now from them!!

Dear Levi - I couldn't have said it better myself. :)
This was the best billboard EVER. I have to agree! Although, shame on Levi for not creating a great jean for THIS ass. But, hey, that's ok, DKNY/Lane Bryant seems to think my ass is JUST fine to outfit. :)

Go forth.
XOXO

work it out | part 1

Big girls need to work out! I am NOT one of those women who believe that my size 26/28 is healthy, nor do I believe I'm a lost cause and shouldn't at least keep trying to be the best version of myself. Not someone else - but myself.

I can understand why a woman would want another's body, features, hair color or money, but I honestly believe the path to true happiness (inside and out) is through focusing that energy on yourself. 

Instead of spending twenty minutes to flip through a magazine or watch a show that is meant to make me feel worse about myself, I am promising to use that time to better myself. First category? Excercise (part 1).

Starting this new excercise journey was frustrating at first, having NO workout wear. Thankfully the wonderful people at Always For Me have helped me out with some activewear and I tell you what, I had no idea how much WHAT you wear when you work out effects on how you FEEL when you work out.

I felt like a charlies angel! *boom-pow*

Let me know your questions if you're looking for some good feeling and looking activewear, I'll give you my honest opinion.

Hey girls! Just a quicky post.

Every girls needs to polish off her entire look. My favorite lately has been nude nails. And, being a mommy, I need polish that will dry in 60 seconds - for real. My favorite is the Maybelline Express Finish, I think I have every color!

Now, off to trim the brows, getting a little bushy!

I was delighted to get a special invite to the PDXposed Finale Party. For the Non-Portland'ers, PDXposed is a local Portland show on events, art and culture here in the NW. I've actually appeared twice on PDXposed! LOL They are great people and landed a gig on a national level, so I couldn't be happier for them.

The party was at a 'supper' club here call Tony Starlights. Pretty cool if you love big band music, which I do. And, the who's who of Portland (PDX) showed up.

This top has been making the rounds, and I'm sad I didn't blog it earlier, but just didn't have the right event.

I do love it, but it's a bit big, so I rocked the one-shoulder idea? LOL..heh! I payed way too much to not wear it! Damn Seven - who do they think they are anyways?

PS - I wore the heels from HELL. They didn't last long, but man were my gams hot when they did :). feel me??
