Style Trend that I Love... Skinny Jeans and Heels

I have been loving this trend every since I first saw it. I love the way skinny jeans look, they still show off your shape and can be worn with several styles of shoes. I like skinny jeans paired with boots but I love skinny jeans paired with high heels. It looks so chic. It's a casual look but the heels add glam and can make your outfit dressy.

Unfortunately, as much as I love this style I haven't found the perfect pair of skinny jeans to fit me to my liking. I'm plus sized down bottom and curvy. I've found skinny jeans at a store called the Avenue but they aren't true skinny jeans-they're more of straight leg jeans that fit wonderfully around my waist and hips but they're not tapered at the bottom... they flare out. I want the jeans to fit well around my hips and legs but scrunch and taper around my ankles like the pictures show.

I plan to take a trip to Ashley Stewart and Torrid to try on their skinny jeans and hopefully I can find a pair that is inexpensive and to my liking. We'll see...

Monica in skinny jeans, I love her entire outfit!

Beyonce always wears skinny jeans.

Eva Longoria in skinny jeans and nude heels. I love nude heels!

Rihanna in skinny jeans and nude heels!

There is a great fashion and style blog, Stylish Curves, for all of the plus sized and stylish beauties out there :)

Do you wear skinny jeans? Any good recommendations on jeans for a plus size girl like me?

Definitely check out Ashley Stewart. I was able to find a cute pair that fit really good and were inexpensive. Also, I got a pair at Rainbow. Good luck on your search, and I love your blog!

Be Blessed!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting skinny jeans from Old Navy. The store sells them up to a size 20 but online they go up to 30.

Thanks Wynter. I didn't know Old Navy had skinny jeans! They always have good sales... so that'll work.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.
