I’m so exited about the Betches x JustFab new curated collection after my eyes alighted on the delightfully pink bomber jacket!

“For JustFab, partnering with Betches just makes sense – we are at the forefront of using technology to better understand our customers’ needs and serve them with the right products, styling, trend information, and fashion & lifestyle content. Betches provides its customers with just that, along with a healthy dose of humor. It’s a platform where you can have fun with fashion & lifestyle content, and laugh with your friends over how relatable it really is. That’s exactly the type of partnership we want to offer our customers.” 

Traci Inglis, Chief Marketing Officer of TechStyle, JustFab’s parent company.

JustFab & Betches are giving sassy fashion friends a great valentines gift with their newest collaboration. It’s the fourth time they’ve created a capsule collection for women of all sizes who want style with surprising details.

They have looks for any mood in the season must have color Rose Gold <scream>. I am simply mad over the jacket (yes I’m repeating myself but DAMN it’ cute) and the origami slip on tennis shoes in gray are my new summer neutral to wear on casual weekend outings The satchel has the perfect amount of metallic sheen to go from office to drinks with my friends <sigh> but I just can’t help daydream about the silver tassle loafer they bring me back to my Catholic School Girl days but all we had was Navy, Black & Burgandy! I want to buy these & the olive bag and team them up with a cute modern plaid skirt, white blouse and sweater for a little schoolgirl style!

I’d love to wear the camouflage jacket with a pair of white jeans & t-shirt and those black boots when I’m feeling like a bad ass feminist. The soft with tough would be perfect for a casual day at work, running errands or just protesting injustice! and YES I’d
grab the rose gold satchel cause this is how THIS woman likes to dress!

Betches X JustFab why are you coming for all my money.

Leave a comment below what you want to add to your wardrobe!

I’m so excited that I will be able to attend the final day of the Paley Center Fall TV Preview!

I’m beside myself that I was able to swing a ticket to the sold out writers of the Mindy Project Panel (Hulu) and want to have my style game on POINT!

Image result for Mindy Project style

I mean who doesn’t love Mindy’s fashion on the series? It’s always brightly colored, body conscious AND shows off her quirky personality. Normally TV series don’t influence my style but Mindy’s brown (like me) and curvy (like me but on a smaller scale). Of course I’m talking about Salvador Perez, a celebrated costume designer who’s worked with the casts of CastleMoonlightVeronica Mars and Pitch Perfect.

Image result for Mindy Project styleImage result for Mindy Project styleImage result for Mindy Project style

Image result for Mindy Project styleThe mix of texture and color that he uses on her curvy body has allowed me to imagine wearing outfits like that but on a less expensive scale! Since I’m attending the final night of the 2016 Fall TV Preview am torn between a couple of dresses and outfits to mix and match. I’m coming straight from work so can’t wear anything TOO zany but would love for my fangirl/fanboy nation to suggest what I should wear to impress Mindy and the rest of the panel. Of course my FAVORITE is the girly bubble gum pink suit! The first time I saw this outfit I gasped I wanted it soo bad!

Ah well enough Mindy Project Fashion Porn. Now for my outfits! I’m torn between wearing white blouse (like a jacket) with either the polka dot dress or one of the skirts with a t-shirt. Am I Mindy Project worthy??? Leave a comment below about what I should wear tomorrow and your favorite Mindy Style! ……

Photo: @nordstrom has the accessories I want wear to the @Grammys afterparty now for a shimmy dress #SnapCollage #collage

I’m SOOO excited that Mastercard has given me tickets to the official Grammy Party this Sunday that I had to check out Nordstrom for accessories and a cute 20s inspired dress.  Sadly no Cherry Size section any longer at the Grove (Plus Size)

but I did see some cool sparkly clutches and necklace that would be perfect to freshen up two outfits I have at home.  One is a sexy little brown dress that I can wear with a cashmere Leopard Shrug (I get cold) or the hot pink dress that I met my ex in (hmm it worked once!) last Valentine’s Day.  My major problem is finding the perfect shoes (comfy but cute) that will give me a little bling that I can shake my groove thing in!  I’m still checking Nordstrom but don’t have time for too much crazy shopping but am sure I’ll find something.  Urghh the decision to look sexy is so damn hard when you have all this (big booty and boobs) but I’m going to WORK it!!! I don’t know if I’ll be twerking it and dropping it low but I do know I’m getting my flirt on!!!  It’s a numbers game and I’m playing!!!

BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY, BOYZ II MEN AND CIARA TO PERFORM AT 2014 GRAMMY CELEBRATION®

GRAMMY Camp® — Jazz Session Members and DJ Michelle Pesce also Scheduled to Participate

The Recording Academy® to Produce Official GRAMMY Awards® After-Party Immediately Following the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, Jan. 26

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 7, 2014) — Four-time GRAMMY®-winning R&B group Boyz II Men, GRAMMY winner Ciara and DJ Michelle Pesce are scheduled to perform at the exclusive 2014 GRAMMYCelebration® — The Recording Academy®’s official after-party. Additionally, the Celebration’s MasterCard Jazz Lounge will feature performances by contemporary swing revival band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and members of the GRAMMY Camp® — Jazz Session. The Roaring ’20s, the boisterous and exuberant decade proclaiming social liberation, will serve as this year’s theme for the all-star GRAMMY Celebration where guests will dance, party and continue to celebrate Music’s Biggest Night®. One of the year’s most anticipated events attracting GRAMMY winners, nominees and celebrities, the 2014 GRAMMY Celebration will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 26 immediately following the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards® telecast.

“What better way to celebrate Music’s Biggest Night than with an amazing GRAMMY after-party where our guests can continue to enjoy their evening surrounded by music, incredible food and a stunningly visual party atmosphere culminating in not-to-be missed performances,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “This year’s glamorous Roaring ’20s theme is sure to provide a uniquely memorable experience for all.”

“With more than 600 catering and service staff, 400 production team members, 200 security agents, 60 dancers and acrobats, five featured performances, and hundreds of hours of planning, it is a daunting yet rewarding task to mount the largest and most complex awards show after-party annually,” said Branden Chapman, Executive in Charge of Production & Chief Business Development Officer of The Recording Academy. “Each year, we are honored to bring our Recording Academy members and annual GRAMMY nominees together to celebrate the year in music amid amazing performances, delectable cuisine and spectacular thematic design.”

The Recording Academy will produce the post-telecast GRAMMY Celebration, overseeing all of the event entertainment, décor and other logistics needed to fill the vast convention space, which equals the size of three football fields. The festive Roaring ’20s theme will come to life with entertainers, dancers, acrobats, elaborate projections, and floor-to-ceiling design reminiscent of the lavish and opulent decade. Renowned celebrity caterer Along Came Mary returns to cater the event with an exquisite menu that includes five buffet-themed stations (New York Italian, Chicago Steakhouse, Atlantic City Boardwalk, Los Angeles Brown Derby, and San Francisco Chinatown) and numerous event themed desserts such as signature hot fudge sundaes, Boston cream whoopie pies, and Coney Island devil dogs among others.

The menu was designed using locally grown meat, produce and cheese, when possible, and all seafood is sustainably produced. Leftover edible food from the GRAMMY Celebration is donated to local food banks and all cooking oil used for the event will be recycled.

MasterCard Worldwide is proud to deliver a priceless musical experience with artists set to perform on the MasterCard stage, as well as in the MasterCard Jazz Lounge. Performances will include Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Boyz II Men, the GRAMMY Camp — Jazz Session, DJ Michelle Pesce, and a dynamic, high-impact performance from Ciara presented by Degree Women.

NOVEMBER 16, 2013
 

 

The Hunger Games Costume Auction is less than two weeks away. This is a very special auction of screen-worn wardrobe from the hit motion picture The Hunger Games.

 

Included in this auction is the famous brown leather Hunting Jacket worn by Katniss Everdeen, portrayed by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. This same jacket was also worn in Catching Fire.

 

Also in this auction is the spectacular and glimmering Fire Dress. This dress was specially made with thousands of Swarovski crystals adorning the lower section that sparkle as the dress moves.

 

Over 200 original screen-worn costumes from this hit blockbuster will be on the auction block. Opening bids start as low as $100.

 

Bidding will be live, internet and phone. Please register to bid early.

 

We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The Hunger Games auction allows fans to virtually step inside the world of the 12 Districts, the Capitol, and the brutal realm of the Games. Fans are afforded a once in a lifetime opportunity to actually own Katniss’ leather hunting jacket, or her “Girl on Fire” dress, or to dress up as one of the flamboyant denizens of the Capitol…or as one of the color-coded District tributes. It is rare to be able to acquire wardrobe so early in a franchise’s history, since it took a phenomenon like the Star Trek television and film series 40 years to reach the auction block. With the November Hunger Games auction, you could go and see The Hunger Games sequel (also out in November) wearing Katniss’ actual leather hunting boots.” -Jennifer Smith is a California University Professor of Art History, a writer, and a collector of original film and television props and costumes. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and magnificent infant son, Clark.
