I can NOT believe how fast time is flying by, and I honestly wish I could squeeze a few extra days out of the month! I am SOOOO sorry I've been gone so long! I need me some FC baby...and I am terribly sorry for not replying to the most wonderful showering of love from comments, to tweets to like and posts. Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!

Where have I been you ask? Well, you know I started my own agency and quit the day job * excellent *, well then my former employer [now biggest client] asked me to produce a wedding event. My idea was to do something HUGE, of course! But, to also do an event that represented the many beautiful brides of the cultures of the world since all I saw in our local wedding community were American based shows only!

So, I named the show Weddings of the World, it will be on May 15th and in between working 14 hour days planning, I got to sneak out for a friend's thank you party! The most amazing and lovely Lidia Covaci of Semper Fashion threw the BEST Romanian Dinner Party to thank everyone involved with the Better Living Show. Thank you LIDIA for a fantastic night OUT! I needed it! :D

I am in LOVE! I love red, i love lace and love a good 3/4 sleeve top! And, City Chic made this all in one just for ME! Ok, not for just me :) But I feel like it.

So, City Chic reached out to me to be one of their bloggers in their monthly lookbook. I was definitely excited but I'll be honest, worried. I knew them as an Australian brand, and heard they launched in the US, but I'm always hesitant with the plus size sizing.

So, I went to their website, convinced they had asked the wrong girl since nothing was going to fit. I would find a top, look at the sizing and all I saw available was XL. Ummmm, was totally sad. Then I decided to take a look at their size chart and couldn't believe my eyes (see chart at end of post). They were saying their size XL tops were equal to a Lane Bryant 24! Really??? HMMMM

Well, I picked out two pieces and I'm happy to report their sizing is completely 100% spot on accurate. So refreshing! And, they offer free returns to US customers! And, the prices are sooooo reasonable!

So, I'm now converted. A City Chic lover. So, go now and order, I would love to hear your reviews!

Have a great week!

So, I'm in the middle of producing a multicultural wedding show Weddings of the World for my client, Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel, and while in the midst of planning and organizing and networking and begging, I met a gem. Her name is Victoria.

She is simply beautiful inside and out. A business woman, creative, smart, serious style and the most amazing Russian accent :). She is a wedding event producer, and today we made magic. She hired me to brand her business, Luxury Events by Victoria, and I've never had so much fun! And, here are some pictures from our meeting at Starbucks....me = standard work attire, victoria = easy breazy amazing. Yes, I was jelly jealous.

PS - Victoria so inspired me by her casual fabulous style that I promptly went out and bought some summer scarves and jean cut-offs. LOL

Today marks the 10th official day of working for JessicaKane! And, back on day one, my good friend Bunn Salarzon, an international wedding photographer, took me out for a celebratory night out. And, a much needed one I might add.

Three raspberry drops later, I was remembering how fun it is to act 25 again and how old I am all in one.

Here's to Bunn and new beginnings! And my new fashion obsessions: jeggings and payless shoes for summer!

Chic Plus Size Moto Jacket for Summer

Hey ladies!
I'm so ready for summer! And one of my must have items in life no matter what the weather is a great jacket (overthing). I like them light...I'm warm blooded...and I like them tailored.

Kmart recently sent me some items to review for their Love Your Style, Love Your Size line, and of the items was this fantastic light weight moto jacket! I feel so super biker awesome, yet the color and fabric are chic. Great for dressing up or just chill. I have to say, for Kmart fashion, this is great! And even better since it's in my favorite price range- around $20 :). I'm giving them two FC thumbs up.

So here are some snaps of me enjoying some decent weather. I wanted to show you the jacket inside and outside.

Wishing you a sunny week dolls!

Hi friends! I know this birthday recap is a month late! *my bad* But, better late than never.
I had the most amazing 31st bday, thank you so much to my friends and co-workers who know how to spoil a girl!

Every year my birthday is a production, so this year I decided to go against tradition and be chill. Just jeans, and beer, no limo's, no grand suites, no production credits! *laughing* I'll save that energy for my new clients of JessicaKane | A Brand Solutions Agency.

Here's to 31 and one of the best years of my life!

Oh my gosh I miss you guys. Can't believe it's been so long since I posted.

Where have I been? WORKING! I am launching my own brand solutions agency, JessicaKane! Please add my company page at www.facebook.com/kanekreative.

Sooooooooo, in the spirit of wearing my big girl pants, I needed some new big girl shoes! I found these at Payless and they are perfect for business and casual, got them in black and denim. And, the heel is only 2.5" (my limit), in size American Eagle by Payless 11W and so comfy! Thank you Payless! :) They even tweeted me back saying thanks for the love...now THAT is cool. Maybe I can get them to do a giveaway??!! :)


Ps - wore these today and so got 4 compliments :)
