>WEEKEND CASUAL

>

After a week of running to shows then back to work and still making time for friends, I was excited for the weekend to come so I could relax. Yesterday I headed downtown to the Soho House to checkout some costume jewelry from some new designers and then I went to visit Marie Denee (The Curvy Fashionista) to just chat for a few minutes. Make sure you checkout Marie’s blog this week for some special exclusive footage at fashion week. I wanted to be comfortable for my travels so I kept things simple with a pair of biker jeans and a turtleneck. I wore my fedora because it was windy and I didn’t want my hair flying all over the place. The faux fur vest was an extra layer of warmth under my coat. I’ve really been into my bright pink lipstick and this time I didn’t wear any gloss over it, which I thought was still flattering to my complexion. This is definitely a typical look for me on the weekend.

>ALISSA’S LIFE: WEEKEND WITH FAMILY

>

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

>WEEKEND STYLE: CARDIGAN CHIC

>

 This weekend I wanted to keep things casual but still look put together. I decided to pull out my Calvin Klein waterfall animal print cardigan that I got on sale at Lord and Taylor last week. The cardigan is actually a little too big but it’s nothing that a belt couldn’t fix. I layered a black turtleneck under it so that I would stay warm. As I said last year, Calvin Klein’s fall 2010 collection was one of my favorites. It was perfect cuts and prints that any curvy girl would want to wear young or mature.

The cardigan is very versatile. It looks just as good open as it does closed. I will be wearing it to work this week over one of my dresses.

I am a crazy earring fanatic. I love big earrings or earrings with unique detail. I scored these earrings at Strawberry’s and I love the onyx stone and the draped chains around it.
