Really, really, super duper quick post.
Yours, Etc.

**EDIT: I've gotten a ton of emails and comments on previous posts asking where US customers can purchase H&M Inclusive pieces. The line is online only and H&M has not set up a US shopping site yet--a super sweet blogger friend of mine was kind enough to send me a few pieces from Sweden! (Thanks Jenn! ♥ ). On the bright side, H&M should start US online shopping within the next six months or so. Yay!

SF Photo Diary

Photos from SF shot by me. Unless I'm in the photo. In which case, taken by the bf.

San Francisco was amazing. I think we did every single tourist attraction possible, which, for only being there 4 days, was quite the feat. My favorites were the tiny shops everywhere (picked up some beautiful artwork), amazing food (hello cowgirl creamery!), and gorgeous views.

Next couple trips? Desert-bound. So. Ready.

[ :: Asos dress :: Dorothy Perkins belt :: Comme de Garcons clutch :: Jessica Simpson heels :: earrings from Taiwan :: ]

My take on color blocking! I've been wanting to try a loud, colorblocked look for a while but the items in my closet just weren't working for me. When this dress arrived from Asos, I just knew I had to figure something out! Anyway, I hope you like what I came up with. It's definitely not one of my usual looks but it was lots of fun to put together. :) 

Ooh, side note, I promise I'm not this pale/fluorescent! haha. I took these photos kinda late in the day and my camera settings ended up being kinda wonky. I have zero photo editing skillz (yes, with a "z") so what I have is what you've got! Live and learn, I guess! :P

Also, you may have seen on Twitter and Facebook that City Chic is having blog readers and their customers pick out which bloggers they would like to see featured in future blogger lookbooks! This was the outfit I submitted. If you'd like to see more of City Chic here on Curvy Girl Chic, and more of me at, you can vote for me here! All you have to do is "Like" my photo. Simple! :) Thanks guys!! ♥ ♥ ♥

someone else completely

[ :: Dorothy Perkins top :: American Rag vest :: Z Cavaricci jeans :: Asos bag :: ]
[ :: AE/H&M/Dorothy Perkins bracelets :: ]

Just a quickie! Some photos from the weekend. Wearing one of my most favorite tops everrrr. Had it hanging in the closet for about 3 months now. The straps are about an inch too long so they have a tendency to slip (my tailor to-do list is about 30 items long). This American Rag crochet vest I got on super sale ($13, I think!) from Macy's did a pretty good job at strapping those unruly things in place.

I hope everyone is having a good week! :)

Yours, Etc.

P.S. Don't forget to enter the Shabby Apple giveaway! :) The dress is available in sizes 0-28 and in 13 colors! :D

keep it simple

[ :: Calvin Klein silk maxi via Macy's :: Gap asymm jacket :: H&M clutch :: Dolce Vita x Target wedges :: ]
[ :: Evans rings :: necklace from street vendor in soho :: ]

I obsessed over this Calvin Klein dress for the longest time before stumbling upon it for 60% off during one of Macy's epic one day sales! I love it to death but am half-scared to wear it since it's 100% silk and I'm so accident-prone. Anyone have tips for taking care of silk? I need help. Badly.

The jacket was also a steal at just under $25. I love how slouchy and drapey and awkward the front is. It took the boy a minute to figure out that it's supposed to be longer on one side...he thought I was just wearing it wrong. lol.

Anyway, I can't seem to get back in the groove of work and blogging after my not-quite-long-enough vacation in San Francisco. I'm sitting here daydreaming of sunny walks on the pier, awesome seafood, and little shops overflowing with the most gorgeous handmade knick knacks. At least I have my sister's visit and my mini trip to Vegas soon. Summer is meant for vacation!

Any of you lovelies have fun plans for the Summer? I'll be living vicariously through you guys for the next month until my Vegas trip! :)

Yours, Etc.

P.S. Congratulations Kendra! :) You won the Thank You giveaway! :) Keep an eye out for an email from me so I can get your shipping info! ♥
