>LAUREN CONRAD’S FALL COLLECTION FOR KOHLS

>

I just may be the only girl in the world who was not into The Hills. I just couldn’t get with it. Sorry :(.  Lauren Conrad by far has been the most successful of her Hill’s cast. With the exception of Whitney Port who is definitely riding her tail with positive reviews from her Whitney Eve line. Lauren seems to just be a success magnet. Can we say, NY Times Best Selling author. With the success of her LC line for Kohls Lauren is back with her new Fall collection for Kohls.

LC’s style is very feminine and girlie yet casual and in her Fall 2010 collection she translates her personal style. The collection offers floaty feminine dresses, cozy sweaters, lace and chiffon tops.

The Fall collection will hit stores this September and the collection goes up to sizes XL-16. Which is in women’s sizes and not juniors. It’s nice to see a celeb collection that doesn’t stop at a 12 and is affordable.

Are you a fan of Lauren Conrad’s style and what do you think of her collection?

>GET A SNEAK PEEK AT THE K-DASH QVC CLOTHING LINE

>

WWD has released a few pics from the Kardashian’s QVC line. The K-Dash line is priced from $19.50 -$240 (The quality better be worth these prices). The line is contemporary sportswear and is set to have 31 styles. Based off  a few of the pictures I am not impressed, however some of the pieces are cute. They do look more wearable for the everyday woman who is not a reality star.

The Kardashian’s, especially with Kim in the forefront are selling power houses and this collection could prove to be a win win deal for both the Kardashian’s and QVC.

According to WWD Ginny Hilfiger is the designer of the line.

>A 50’s VIBE

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last weekend I was over at Redress NYC (fave resale shop) to meet Tupieta blogger Courtney. Whenever I go into Redress I never leave empty handed. As I snacked on crackers and cheese my eyes gazed upon this beautiful multi colored skirt. It’s as if the skirt was calling me. I love color and I love a lot of it. When I pulled it from the rack I immediately fell in love with it and carried it around the store with me as I continued to look around for some more treasures. I took the skirt into the fitting room with me and when I tried it on it was a perfect fit. No alterations needed.

I just knew I was going to buy it until I started second guessing myself (I hate when I do that). “Are the colors too loud?” “Are people going to think this skirt is ugly?” I even had a 10 minute conversation with one of the shop girls on what to wear it with for now and for Fall.
When I brought it home, I just felt like it was giving off a 50’s vibe because of the fullness in the skirt. All I needed was a pair of ankle socks and shoes to complete the look.  I am not a fan of ankle socks and shoes, so, I wore it my way, which was to let the skirt shine on it’s own. So I decided to wear it with my short sleeve ruffled front top and my pink sandals (I know ya’ll are tired of seeing them,but, I just love them) and a clutch that I got from Beacons Closet on 5th Ave. in Brooklyn. I decided to wear bangles on both hands and a pair of gold earrings that I got as a gift from

When I got on the train this morning for work, I got so many compliments about the skirt and when I went out for lunch a few people stopped me to tell me how great the skirt was. One lady even asked me if it was vintage. I told her no, that the skirt was actually from Isaac Mizrahi’s Target line. Her mouth fell wide open. Just think, I almost let this treasure pass me by.

If you don’t know by now, ReDress NYC is such a great store and I am not just saying that because the people are so nice and helpful or because they are in the best borough in NYC, BROOKLYN. Some of my favorite vintage looking pieces are from their store.

Be sure to check them out if you haven’t already ReDressNYC. This is no promo, it’s simply the truth.

>ARE THE KARDASHIAN’S DESIGNING A CLOTHING LINE FOR CURVY GIRLS?

>

With the success of their BeBe line the unstoppable Kardashian sisters are set to take on another big fashion project. According to NYMAG’s The Cut,  the Kardashians will be designing a clothing line specifically for QVC the most popular place for celebrities to hock their goods.

According to The Cut
Kardashian sisters Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney are working on a clothing line for QVC with Mad Men’s brilliant costume designer, Janie Bryant. The line, which is for curvy women, is called K-Dash and will launch at FNO on September 10.

According to the New York Post
Kim yesterday complained she hadn’t yet found a dress to fit her famous booty for Sunday night’s Emmy’s, saying, “My stylist Monica has some amazing choices . . . I haven’t fit into anything yet.”

So, does this mean that curvy girls above a size 14 will be able to dress like Kardashian look a likes? I think so. Whenever designers or celebrities do a QVC or HSN line they almost always include plus sizes up to 3X. So many girls love Kim’s personal style that consists of body con dresses and tailored blazers. My hope is that the clothes will be just as cute as the BeBe line and not a bunch of skimpy Play Boy Bunny looking threads? Luckily Janie Bryant is on their side to help guide the entrepreneurial sisters. I do hope the designs are fresh and not BeBe knocks offs. Can’t wait to see what they come up with.

For those of you in the NYC area you will be able to get your hands on the collection at a QVC pop up store in Rockefeller Center on Fashion’s Night Out. There will also be a live broadcast.

SC readers, what are your thoughts on the Kardashian clothing line. Sound off!

>CURVY GIRLS AT THE EMMY’S

>The Emmy’s last night had more fashion dont’s than do’s. I was a little disappointed in some of the gown choices of my favorite celebrities. However a few curvy girls came out to represent. I am questioning Christina Hendricks choice in a lavender feathery gown but Kim and Amber rocked it out in all white dresses. Also Kaycee Stro from High School Musical looked elegant in IGIGI.

Tell SC which curvy celeb was the best dressed.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Today’s Stylish Curves of the day is from JuJu in Brooklyn.

 I love to see when plus size women like my self embrace their curves. Some females tend to think having curves is a bad thing but not me. I love my curves and embrace it everyday when I shop I always look for clothes that I will feel comfortable in and also cute… I love when I step out and all eyes are on me.  Makes me feel so beautiful… I also love when women ask me where i get my outfit from. I love clothes from Torrid, Ashley, and Fashion to Figure. They always have clothes that are CUTE,COMFORTABLE and makes me feel CONFIDENT… The three C’s I live by when getting dressed…
Well JuJu, your confidence shows in your pictures and your looks are trendy and curve embracing. I personally love that black dress and those ripped leggings. Thanks for representing the Brooklyn curvy girls.
What do you guys think of JuJu’s looks?

>JIBRI FALL 2010 COLLECTION NOW AVAILABLE

>

I just love when a designer thinks outside the box in terms of theme and designs. Jibri’s Fall collection does just that. Titled “The Third Floor” this collection is nothing less than perfection. We all know what it’s like on the lower floors in department stores like Saks, Henri Bendel, and Neiman Marcus, it’s all glamour, sophistication, and pure luxury. Jibri’s designer Jasmine Elder is giving us curvy girls that third floor feeling with her bold designs in rich color, texture, and fabulous structure.  What I love about Jibri’s designs is that they always focus on showcasing curves instead of hiding them. Her looks are chic, sophisticated, and always has a few trendy pieces incorporated. All SC has to say is well done.
