There’s not a woman alive that doesn’t love them some Jimmy Choo shoes. The luxury brand is king of creating classic shoes with a sophisticated edge. Just like any luxury brand, Jimmy Choo doesn’t come cheap and many of us have to put our face and hands on the glass window at Saks and Barney’s only to stare at a pair of Jimmy Choo’s because our budgets just won’t allow them to walk into our closets.
Well, if you can’t afford the shoes, you can afford the fragrance. Jimmy Choo has released their first fragrance and it is available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Jimmy Choo’s founder Tamara Mellon
is the face of the ad campaign.
Here’s what Mellon had this to say about the fragrance-“Fragrance has always been part of my vision for Jimmy Choo. To fully extend the Jimmy Choo lifestyle, enveloping a woman with the sensuality and essence of the brand. I have always loved wearing perfume; it is part of my identity. Now to create a signature fragrance for Jimmy Choo expressing an aura of strength and beauty is my ultimate dream.”
The fragrance is being released in part with the Jimmy Choo brand celebrating its 15th year in the business. The fragrance will be available in Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
FB fan Maria asked SC where did Mo’Nique get her silver ruched dress that she wore to this year’s Academy Award nominations. Well Maria, Besides wearing shaved legs Mo’Nique is wearing a Tadashi Shoji laced ruched dress from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. This chic dress retails between $300-$400.
Below is the black version to Mo’Niques dress, the sleeveless version, and last years sequin longer sleeve version. Something for everyone. All Tadashi Shoji dresses can be purchased at Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales.
OK, I know you’ve probably already read about H&M’s new plus size collection that’s going to go up to US size 24. When H&M first came to the states, their plus size line was nothing less than, how can I put it? A hot mess! The shapes were unflattering and the styles were a snooze with bland over sized t-shirts. However the smaller plus size girls, were able to get away with H&M’s more stylish pieces in sizes 12-16. No matter how much I despised the plus size section in H&M I have to admit that I was a bit perturbed when they took it away for good.
Now H&M has decided to make a comeback with their plus sizes and it is definitely a crowd pleaser. The new plus size collection is vibrant with color, intriguing with dainty details, and shapes that are sure to make a plus size girl be proud of her curves. My only disappointment is that the clothes will not be available in store. They will only be available on line. I mean come on people, I want to try clothes on just like everyone else without having to pay the over priced shipping fee. I’m quite sure H&M can clear out some space in a few of their already over stuffed retail stores to make way for the curvy girls. Forever21 did it so can they.
Nevertheless, I am quite ecstatic for the plus size community to have another stylish and trendy place to shop and kudos to H&M for using actual plus size models and finally designing clothes that embraces curves rather than hide them.
*The collection will be available online in March only in the UK (That Sucks!).

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
This weekend I spent a little time with my family. We were celebrating the life of one of my cousins who past away 10 years ago. I had so much fun visiting with everyone and it just reminded me how important family is.
This is my favorite snapshot of the night. It makes me want to sing the Sister Sledge family reunion classic. “We are family, I got all my sisters with me.”
Me along with my sister on the left and my cousins in the red dresses. I wore my colored animal print H&M dress it’s the same one from an ootd I did lst month. you can check it out HERE
Remember the good times with your family and remember that you’re family
