Are You Ready For Some Football?

Football season is upon us (GO EAGLES!) and if you're like me then you LOVE some football. I'm a sportsnista and my favorite sport is hands down football. When I go to games, watch the games in my house or go to a party or bar to watch games I want my clothing to scream EAGLES B*TCHES! BUT, there is a lot of pure foolishness out there when it comes to sports team apparel for women, especially in plus-sizes. I still want to look cute and feminine. Boxy oversized tees are not the business. Lucky for you, I found some great places to shop for cute (even sexy) sports team gear in plus-sizes.

Lane Bryant

Who knew? I came across an NFL Graphic Tees section on their site. If you want a basic, fitted tee, look no further.

One Stop Plus
Again, who knew? They have a wide range of options for your NFL team needs. Only select items come in plus sizes, which is weird since OSP is a plus-size site.

NFL Shop

The official store. They have tons of things to choose from, and most women's apparel goes up to at least XXL.

Football Fanatics

This site has some of the cutest stuff. Their accessories and shoes are super cute!

Are you a football fan? Who do you root for?

Rebel Wilson Featured in Cosmo

I was reading the September issue of Cosmo magazine when I was delighted to see Rebel Wilson featured in an interview and in photos. I LOVE Rebel. She is HILARIOUS. I want us to hang out (Call me girl!). In my head my celebrity entourage would be Beyonce, Rebel Wilson and Ryan Seacrest. How eclectic and wrong and oh-so-right is my crew? Beyonce and I are both Virgos (we da best *in my DJ Khaled voice*) and she's freaking Beyonce. Nuff said. Rebel is just funny as hell. And Ryan Seacrest and I would go shopping and get mani-pedis and dish celebrity gossip. 

Anyway, back to the subject. Rebel has a new TV show debuting this fall called, Rebel’s Super Fun Night. It premieres October 2nd at 9:30pm EST on ABC. I will have to check it out. In the meantime check out this great interview over at Cosmo

Labor Day Sales...Who Has the Best Deals?

I can't believe its freaking Labor Day already. WTF??? Where did my summer go? WAAAAH!
Anyway, the great thing about this weekend besides grilling and chilling is the sales! I plan on scouring the racks and the sites this weekend for some GOOD.ASS.BARGAINS.

Below are some of the sales I found. Most of these sales are going on now, so get to it before the good stuff is GONE. Happy Shopping!

E!Online is reporting that Glee star and curvy girl, Amber Riley, is rumored to be joining the cast of this season’s Dancing With the Stars. Watch out for the big girls! I haven’t watched DWTS since the Joey Fatone season (heeeeeey Joey), but I may need to watch to see how Amber does her thing. I love her! She has great style and great weaves. Yes, I said great weaves! The cast will be announced officially September 4th on GMA.

Will you be watching and supporting Amber?

Outfit of the Week 8.25.13

Hola peoples! I'm back on it this week with my 2nd fashion trend obsession for 2013, Denim shirts! My first is peplum in case you were wondering. I only wanted to invest in ONE denim shirt and it has literally taken me the last 6 months to find THE ONE. I finally found this hot gold studded denim shirt at Forever 21. I paired it with black jeans from Target (pronounced Tar-Jay of course) and my black and gold studded smoking slipper shoes. I also added this gold-ish heart bracelet, which I am also obsessed with. It too is from Forever 21.

I swore I had my girl Becca take more poses of this but I guess not, womp womp. But, you get the picture.

If you want to replicate my look check these out:

(Similar) Macy's Shoes

Will you be rocking the denim shirt trend this fall?

Celebrity Husband of the Week: Channing Tatum


Nothing else really needs to be said. I mean really. I said he was the sexiest man alive back when I was about 19 and I saw him in this Mountain Dew commercial. Chiiiiiiiiiiiile, I said WHO IS THAT??!!! I Immediately went to my computer and Yahoo'd him. Yes, I said Yahoo'd, this was back when Yahoo was popping. I have been following this man ever since. I was overjoyed when he made his acting debut in Coach Carter and his career took off. And you just know I was back row center opening night for Magic Mike, heeeeeey. This man is just too fine for words. That face, those eyes, that body, those dance moves, that body, that smile, that body, that swag, THAT BODY. Ladies, enjoy the sexiness that is Channing Tatum.

Outfit of the Week: 8.14.13

This shirt was my FIRST purchase ever from ASOS. I love this shirt. I bought it back in 2010 and it introduced me to my favorite website ASOS. Their ASOS Curve collection (plus sizes) is DA BOMB! I wish I had a shopping spree to buy one of everything. Why can't the stores in the U.S. get it right? Why do I have to go to the UK? And get this, they have FREE shipping to the U.S. and FREE returns. Yup, I wrote that correctly. And, I get my items faster than some orders from the U.S. smh. American Retailers please GET YO' LIFE! Anywho, I love this shirt. I've lost weight to the point where I may have to get rid of it soon as its too big (sad face), but for now I can get away with it with a belt. It's a chiffon asymmetrical zipper detail blouse that zips up the front. ASOS no longer has it on their site but here is a similar style top from Forever 21 (my other love).  I paired it with a black elastic belt,  Lane Bryant black pin tuck skinny ankle dress pants and studded t-strap sandals. I love those sandals! Buy them here


I Need That: ASOS Curve Sweatshirt

THIS!! My favorite thing to wear EVER in life is a comfy hoodie or sweatshirt. I love it even more when it has feminine, cute detailing that makes it more dressy and trendy. This open shoulder sweatshirt is EVERYTHING! I can see myself living in this all winter long. This is definitely being added to my list of things I'll to complete my fall wardrobe. Buy it here but only if you live nowhere near me. Can't have us looking alike lol.

Tadashi Shoji Fall/Holiday 2013 Collection

Tadashi Shoji is one of my favorite gown designers. Curvy celebs such as Octavia Spencer and Amber Riley can often be seen wearing Tadashi on the red carpet. The gowns are GORGEOUS! The beading, the draping, the silhouettes, the fabrics...everything is just amazing. The 2013 Fall/Holiday collection for plus sizes is on their website for pre-order and it does not disappoint. If you have a snazzy holiday party to attend or a winter wedding to attend you need to splurge on one of these gowns.

Here are my top 3 picks from the collection:

1. Neoprene & Lace Cap Sleeve Gown in Black / Pale Pink 

2. Lace Boatneck ¾ Sleeve Gown with Grosgrain Ribbon Belt in Flame / Nude 

3. Tulle Draped Cap Sleeve Gown with Paillette Detail in Merlot

Check out the full collection.

Are you a fan of Tadashi Shoji?

On the Red Carpet

Curvy divas have been making the red carpet rounds in Hollywood in the last week. Oprah was looking UH-MAZE-ZING at the premiere of Lee Daniels' The Butler. She gets my pick for best dressed curves in Hollywood last week. Amber Riley was looking cute and casual at the Teen Choice Awards.

Oprah - The Butler Premiere
OOOOOO. OPRAH.BETTER.WERK.  If this is 59, I ain't scared.

Outfit of the Week: 8.7.13

Hola lovelies. This weeks' outfit is one of my favorite dresses. It's soooo comfy, cozy, easy-breezy, trendy and flattering. I got this dress at Ross. The bird ditsy print had me sold! The black "belt" waist gives the illusion of a more defined waist for my apple-shaped self. I felt the dress was a tad bit too short to rock without someting under it at work, so I paired it with black leggings and it totally worked. I threw on my Michael Kors sandals and was ret.ta.go.

H&M Online Shopping is Here!

It took 2 years to develop, but H&M has finally launched e-commerce in the US. Welcome to the 21st century! Not only that, BUT plus-sizes are available. WOOHOO!! I love the clothes at H&M, but have not been able to fit into their largest size since 2003. H&M has made a few sad attempts at plus-sizes in the past. I will never forget the pathetic 2 racks of only white peasant tops and tees and boring jeans that was the plus-size section of H&M when I was in college. Yea, um, try again. But, the selection they have online so far is a decent. It would be nice to see a larger, more diverse, trendier selection like those in the smaller sections, but it's a much better start than the last heap of mess I saw them do. I wish the models were a little bit thicker, but they are "plus-size" so that's good at least.

Here are my top picks:

 The skull tee with the rocker chick skinny jeans is edgy and I like it
I'm all about the bodycon dresses. Loving this one.
 This shirt is so cute for work. I like the white contrast and the light blue color.

I have been searching for a leopard cardigan forever. At $17.95, I think this might be THE ONE!
What do you think about H&M's plus size line? Did they get close to getting it right this time? Will you be purchasing?
