Hey curvy girls all over the world,
If you love Aldo’s shoes, then you’ll love their new sister brand “Call It Spring Shoes.” Call It Spring Shoes is the more affordable version of Aldo shoes. Last week SC was invited by Shine Media PR and Call It Spring to checkout the new store on 34th street inside the Manhattan Mall.
By the time I arrived to the mall it was flooded with fashion bloggers, journalists, and editor’s checking out what the new line had to offer. I should probably add that the place was packed because all who attended received a $150 giftcard to use right then and there in the store to purchase shoes. I know! It was mayhem.
We all know that Aldo’s can be a bit over priced and for me most times their shoes hurt my feet, so, I was intrigued at the thought of them doing a cheaper line and possibly hoping that they wouldn’t be as painful as some of Aldo’s shoes are. As I perused down the aisle checking out the shoes I noticed that there were a lot of runway trends like military style ankle boots, classic multi colored pumps, as well as an assortment of evening shoes.
Call It Spring shoes kind of reminded me of Baker’s shoes. You know, the shoe spot you go to when you’re looking for cute cheap shoes that are similar to designer styles. After checking out their selection, I did find a few pair that didn’t hurt and looked really good on my feet. The shoes were sized up to a 41 which in US sizes could mean a 10 or an 11. I’m a true 9.5, but always by a size bigger for comfort so the 40 fit me just fine.
Overall the event was tons of fun and the shoes were super cute.
Check them out for yourselves and let SC know what you think. All shoes here are available for purchase on their website at My Spring Shoes

Sweater Dresses are in my top ten favorite pieces for Fall and Winter. They look great with tall or ankle boots and are a great layering piece for those cold winter months. What I like about the sweater dress this season is that they are more feminine. I love the Forever 21 ruched sleeve empire waist dress as well as the Old Navy studded dress. Both would be a great option for work or after work.
For something more edgy or trendy, the striped and off the shoulder sweater dresses with dolman sleeves are perfect if you want to bring out that inner tough girl or vixen. A sweater dress is the perfect item for the curvy girl and it should definitely be on your Fall shopping list.

If you have dived into any of your September magazine issues then you already know that one of the hottest trends this Fall season will be military inspired pieces. SC loves this trend because it reminds me of being in ROTC back in high school. A few of us used to wear our pea coats on our off days because they were just that cute. Now that times have changed a better way to incorporate the military trend into your wardrobe is by pairing a military style trench or cropped jacket over a frilly or girlie dress.
An array of plus size lines are making sure that they incorporate this trend for their curvy customer. SC is in love with ASOS’s military style cape and we love CJ by Cookie Johnson’s silk cargo pants. If you are looking to wake up your wardrobe a little bit or just to find a new way to wear some of your basic pieces, a military style sweater or jacket will do the trick.
