Jacket Curb Appeal

Are you ready to show off your Fall/Winter jacket curb appeal? I have been following the fashion “gods” trying to determine the must have items to enhance my wardrobe and it’s been found. No matter what bottom, top, shoes, jewelry, or handbags you wear, add a leather jacket and the whole outfit becomes a new statement.

Check out my favorite pieces… similar in color, but different in how they make you feel/look.

“CURVY ART” in the EYE of the BEHOLDER

Recently, I came across some very cool artwork that I truly admire. Curvy Art. It takes on a whole different meaning of expression, freedom, and showcases curvy femininity at its best.  The silhouettes, abstract appeal, and bold vivid colors highlights the curvy world many of us identify with today.  Art is in the Eye of the Beholder, but Curvy Art represents an imagination I not only envision but experience.

The London Voyage

LONDON – Best trip ever. The diverse culture, history, and shopping was well worth the eight hour flight. I arrived in London on Sunday, Aug 10th early morning and enjoyed every last minute of the LONDON VOYAGE until departing on Saturday afternoon. The weather was not as favorable as I desired but definitely manageable. Just remember to ALWAYS carry a raincoat or umbrella at all times. The US Dollars to British pounds conversion, just say on average a $1 in US is $0.60 British pounds. Go figure. The public transportation subway called the “TUBE” is similar to the “METRO” in New York  and it goes everywhere but clean. Our hotel K&K George was located conveniently in Kensington two blocks from Earls Court Station. Perfect location.

Sunday, we kicked off our arrival day in London by visiting Portobello Market and later had dinner at Nando’s. Very Tasty!

Monday, we caught the London Hop on Hop Off Tour exploring the London Eye, London Bridge, Big Ben, and Trafalgar Square. Later, dinner was a indian cuisine at  Masala Zone.

Tuesday, CAMDEN MARKET was the destination ALL DAY. The shopping, food, and eclectic environment was very entertaining. In addition, I got a fish pedicure at Zoola Fish, received an henna tattoo, conquered a tasty cupcake at Mimi’s cupcakes, and  enjoyed fish -n- chips at Poppies.

Wednesday, we started our day with shopping at TKMaxx (TJMaxx) and had a “Fashion Tea” scheduled at the Berkley. I felt like Royalty. Later, we paid a visit to the famous Harrod’s Department Store.

Thursday, we signed up for a 10 hour sightseeing tour to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Oxford. Windsor Castle was so rich in culture and history. Stonehenge was quite intriguing and I am still baffled about the purpose and creation of those stones. Oxford history and building designs showcased a city like no other. Very pristine and sacred.

Friday, the National History Museum was our first destination. Free admission with an hour wait, not bad at all.  Then shopping on Oxford Street in London checking out Selfridges, Primark, Topshop, etc. Later that night, we met with a close friend for dinner at the italian restaurant called Zizzi’s. Delicious!

Saturday, we packed up, enjoyed our last breakfast at the hotel, and hop into a car to take us to London-Heathrow Airport. The London Voyage was officially over and reality would restart. However, the experience  and memories in London will last a LIFETIME. I am blessed and humbled to be able to experience it.

Three Cool Summer Looks

Summer is here. I always feel my spring/summer wardrobe needs more options. I have a lot of pieces to select from but no desire to wear them. I assume either I am not picking what I love and just picking want I like. Or I am guilty of picking similar pieces and get bored with the same look in different colors or fabrics. So I had to do a little research to determine what looks I love to be an option this summer. With traveling and attending events I need to make sure I have plenty options. Check out these great finds…..

1.  Black/White Graphic Rae Crop Blouse – JIBRI

GlamCurvy: Top 5 Conversational Tees

How different would it be to have a “COOL” tank/t-shirt collection included into your summer wardrobe? Well I found some pretty odd tees with a message I can relate to or would love to discuss with the right audience. A blank tee is so typical, but a tee with words and/or pics can be a conversational piece or silence the room. I dare you this summer to step out of the “normal” and challenge yourself to wear a t-shirt that represent something either naughty or nice.

Today, I was listening to Spotify and came across the song “Bossy” by Kelis. Now for those of you who have not heard this song, you have to listen to the lyrics. It’s contagious. With that said, I thought about all of the GlamCurvy divas that is a BOSS. Check out these bossy looks at the office, afterwork, and nightlife.

Lyrics from the hit song “Bossy”

You don’t have to love me
You don’t even have to like me
But you will respect me
You know why?
Cause I’m a boss!

February ’14 Tribute to Black History

Not sure if you feel the same way, but the month of February went by super FASST.  February is a such an historical month with the celebration of “Black History”. However, I couldn’t let this month end without highlighting some of America “black royalty” icons. For many of us, its just history.  To those people who ancestors fought, protest, and died to fight for equality, freedom, and justice for blacks in America this is “heroic” history.

Before we sign off on February 28, 2014,  let’s take a step back into time and remember a few of our famous black american female icons.

1. Ella Fitzgerald (1917-1996) – Jazz Singer

2. Etta James (1938-2012) – Singer/Songwriter
