When I wear gingham, I feel like sunshine and picnics. Nothing says hello summer more than a pretty gingham dress. In fact, gingham is the biggest trend of the season and it never goes out of style. It’s the first weekend of June, and the weather couldn’t be more perfect for a day out with my sweet hubby Gary, so I am wearing my new 50s inspired Roberta Gingham Swing Dress from Collectif Clothing.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! ‘Tis the season for eggnog, gingerbread, and most importantly…Christmas parties and photos! If you’re anything like me, you love getting all dressed up for a festive soirée. But if you’re also like me, you struggle to find a flattering Christmas outfit that fits your curves just right. Never fear! I’m here to help you find the perfect ensemble that will have you feeling confident and fabulous all night long.
One of my favorite parts about the holidays is getting all decked out in my finest clothes and going to holiday parties. Unfortunately, finding a flattering and stylish outfit can be a bit of a challenge when you’re curvy. Too often, I find myself feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable in ill-fitting clothes that just don’t work with my body type. But this year, I’m determined to find the perfect Christmas outfit that makes me feel confident and beautiful. Here are a few tips that I’ve learned along the way:
With a radiant smile, I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Collectif Clothing is turning my Autumnal style fantasies into a stunning reality with their beautiful Vintage Eliana Forest Floral Swing Dress! The Eliana, a design I hadn’t previously explored, immediately swept me off my feet with its charming sweetheart neckline and a woodland print that sings of the colors of fall. The presence of adorable bunny rabbits dancing through the pattern added an unexpected dash of delight, leaving me absolutely brimming with excitement to slip into this lovely number.

Hey Lovelies, I’m just writing to let you know about my Curvy Girl Fashion Inspo experience that went down over the weekend. I know how hard it can be finding clothes that fit our curvy bodies, but I want you to know that you can show off your style and this post is to help girls like us find clothing we love!
I know many of you are already decorating for Fall and visiting the pumpkin patch. California still thinks it is the thick of summer with temperatures in the mid 90s!! Gary and I braved the heat and headed up to one of our favorite little towns in lovely wine country for a fun day of strolling around, doing some vintage shopping, and lunch.
With the weather being down right scorching, I wore this adorable light-weight dress by Cherry Velvet a brand that is size inclusive and inspired by Pinup and Rockabilly vintage styles (my favorite). This dress has the sweetest print of a high-tea with lovely teapots and teacups, macarons, and strawberries. The dress also has pockets!! This dress style is called the Norma – Anniversary Tea Party – Macron Dress. The Norma is a style that is very curvy girl friendly especially if you have a large bust. I am wearing the Norma in size XL and the fit is perfection. I really love the way the dress hugs my curves and accentuates my hourglass shape beautifully. I added a fluffy petticoat for a little added flair. Since we were walking around I wore some simple white comfy sneakers and my little pink sweater to shade my arms. This dress is so comfortable and airy, and I received so many compliments. People were smiling and it was so nice to receive such a positive reaction. The sweet team at Cherry Velvet also included a delightful paper doll collectible that is limited edition and numbered and is part of their 10th Cherry-versary. How sweet!!
Here are some pictures of our fun day. I loved the red Vespa!! We had a fabulous pizza lunch, and I will do a post in a couple of days about that. Stay safe my friends.
June is here and that means summertime!! I am really looking forward to summer and the seasonal change and yes, the fun summer dresses too. I like sunshine and warm weather (not too hot) but summertime in California is beautiful, especially where we live in gorgeous wine country. The vineyards are in full-bloom and lush with grapes and one of my favorite things to see are the manicured rows of vineyards on the rolling hills. Well this is a great segway into my post today as my sweet hubby Gary and I went over to the world famous Korbel winery for our photoshoot and everything was starting to bloom for summer.
I was excited to wear the new Art Nouveau jewelry collection from Erstwilder and just love the colors in my Royal Eye peacock colored plume necklace and Royal Eye brooch as they are stunning and really bring out the colors of my dress (dress is from Heart of Haute) and perfect for body positive curvy girls. Erstwilder works with the most talented designers and creators and the new collection really brings out the ornamental style, colors, and curved formats of the Art Nouveau style. Look how amazing my Le Chat Noir brooch is!! Hurry on over to Erstwilder and snap up your favorites because they do sell out fast!!
