A few months ago, I reported that Christian Louboutin would be designing shoes for Barbie. Well, now Barbie by Christian Louboutin is now available at Net-A-Porter.com.

She comes equipped with a collectible calendar showcasing her adventures with Mr. Louboutin.

I have to admit that since Project Runway left Bravo and moved to Lifetime, I stopped watching the show. Yesterday I was reading one of my many favorite blogs The Curvy Girls Guide to Style and I discovered that Kenley Collins a contestant on Project Runway is designing clothing for sizes 2-24.
After viewing her website http://www.kenleycollins.com/, you can see that she has a vintage style. According to her bio she said that she is inspired by the 1930’s and Amelia Earhart, which is obvious in her designs.
I think her designs will compliment curves. As you may already know the 1930’s were all about lady like glamour and the silhouettes were complimentary to a womans shape no matter her size. It was all about creating a waist and showing off the hips.
I must warn you that even though we are in a recession, the clothes are pricey, ranging from $175-$900.
Take a look at a few pieces and let me know what you think.
Thanksgiving is around the corner and I know my curvy girls are going to need some great outfits to wear. Since Thanksgiving is also family time, we all know what that means. There is always that one relative you have not seen in a long time making you aware of how much weight you gained since the last time they saw you. As if you needed them to remind you. Nevertheless, it still does not deter you away from moms sweet potato pie or another helping of macaroni and cheese.
When this time comes around I always wear neutral colors with a bright shoe or coat. I try to pick comfortable pieces so that way buttons are not popping after my 2nd helping of mac and cheese. I also choose pieces that are not over the top or too simple because you do want to wow your family members (especially the ones you have not seen in awhile) but, you also don’t want them talking about how you were all dressed up for no reason.
If you are looking for a little inspiration, check out my choices below
(Like what you see, just click on the item):
An empire waist top that floats over your stomach is a great option to hide that bulge that develops after you have eaten. Go for an empire waist top that has embellishment at the waist or a belt because it will help to create a waist while a low neck and draped sleeves gives off a suttle sexy goddess like look. Pairing a flowy top with skinny jeans will make your legs look miles long which will give you a slimmer look. A bright coat will have all eyes on you as soon as you walk in the door.

I love to wear dresses on Thanksgiving, especially with leggings. I am free to move around and be relaxed without feeling confined. Which is why this jean dress is such a good choice. It’s freeing and flowing. A great pair of bold earrings and a wide belt will spice up a simple dress. Matching your belt to your shoes is a nice way to pull your look together.
These options will have your family giving you compliments all day instead of giving you tips on how to keep your weight down.
This season fashion is about rock & roll and glamour. Sequins are everywhere, black is everywhere. If you are a night owl these trends are what you are looking for. A metallic top, sequin leggings, or lace bustier are both sexy and edgy.
Go on and try these looks and all the boys will be coming to your yard for a little milkshake :).

Is it a misconception that women like to wear clothes that makes them look slimmer. As a curvy woman do you find yourself spending countless hours in the fitting room trying to find that perfect item that makes you look 10lbs lighter or do you just buy whatever looks good whether it makes you look smaller or bigger?
I pose this question because one of the popular items this season is faux fur vests.
