Harvest season is just about over here in Northern California and the beautiful Napa Valley. The vineyards are beautiful this time of year and I wanted to visit and do a photoshoot with all the glorious fall foliage. For this shoot I am wearing my stunning Oktober 50’s Dress by Hell Bunny as it is literally perfect for Autumn and the harvest season.
The fit of the Oktober 50’s Dress is amazing. It zips up the back, has 2 very deep pockets, pleats on the full circle skirt and the bodice; it is gorgeous with the faux wrap top and under bust seams with delicate gathers that enhance my feminine shape. I am wearing my standard 2XL Hell Bunny size and the dress fits perfectly. I love the faux wrap top made from two overlapping fabric panels as this dress style easily accommodates an ample bust. This lovely dress is available in up to size 4XL.
Oranges, reds, yellows, greens, black, wine, and even shades of pink are just some of the gorgeous autumnal colors nature creates for us to enjoy. This post is all about sharing some of these standout colors that I like to call eye candy because they evoke a pop of sweet joy when I wear them and see them.
A black dress can certainly be appropriate for Fall especially when it has a print as beautiful as this one with orangey-reds and turquoise blue-green. This dress is the Trixie Midnight Lily Swing Dress from Collectif Clothing in the UK. The dress is made from high quality cotton sateen and has a lovely sweetheart neckline and fitted waist for the 1940s-1950s bombshell look I love. The sleeves are ¾ and perfect for Fall time here in San Francisco.
My feline friendly outfit is another Fall favorite of mine. I love novelty prints and the border print on this skirt has the most adorable kitty cats. The skirt started off as a dress that ended up being too small and wouldn’t go over my chest so I had a seamstress convert it into a skirt for me and now I can wear it often. I like the green color of the skirt and paired it here with a bright orange sweater, leopard print purse and dark brown cardigan and I feel like I am wearing several autumnal colors in one outfit!!

Hello my friends, summer is in full swing and the 4th of July is in a couple of days. Many of you will be enjoying BBQs, spending time at the beach or enjoying your summer vacations. These patriotic looks I have put together come in a variety of sizes and many in up to size 4X so us curvy girls can definitely wear them all year as the key is in the mixing and the matching of prints and the quintessential red, white, and blue colors we love. You can easily take your outfits to the next level with accessories like cute novelty bags, shoes, and cardigans to rock your 4th of July style all year long.
I love nautical style and really anything nautical themed because it is so classic. These four outfits I have in my opening photo are very patriotic with a nautical twist and they are so easy to wear. Nautical print dresses are so fun during the summer months and just image wearing one of these in The Hamptons, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, wow, you will stand out with so much style!! You can take elements from each look and wear them all year.
Winters in California couldn’t be more perfect!! Although we don’t get snow it still gets chilly and that calls for a nice warm coat. The vineyards have lost most of their leaves by now but are still breathtaking. We took a drive out to Ferrari-Carano winery and it did not disappoint, just look at the scenery!! As usual the property is immaculately groomed. Inside the cellar is all decorated for Christmas and it is exquisite. There are even Betty Boop ornaments on the trees!! We took some pictures and met some lovely folks who were so complimentary about my outfit and style. It is always so much fun to meet people out and about.
This past weekend was amazing!! We found a winter wonderland (minus snow, we live in California after all) but there was a chill in the air and the wonderful excitement of picking out the Christmas tree. This magical place is Grandma Buddy’s Christmas Tree Farm right here in Sonoma County’s little city of Sebastopol.
