NAKIMULI IS GIVING ME LIFE!!!!!

I have always referred curvy women who don't mind spending a little money on unique clothing to nakimuli. This time around I am once impressed with her prints, choice of models (essie golden) and the uniqueness. I found myself falling in loveeeeeeeeeeee with her bathing suits and boy am I happy I didn't jump on the monif c bandwagon of sorts. I think I'm going to order it what the hell you only live once right? If you are worrying about the price I must say when you walk into a room and no one has on your dress or leggings it's a feeling I can't explain! so if you're ready to rock some funky, sexy, unique pieces tip toe over to nakimuli and make your first purchase!

words can't explain how I feel about this bathing suit. It's fab and sexy and the model gives me all kinds of life lol (insider) 




so what do you diva's think? can you see yourself rocking nakimuli? I CAN AND WILL IN 0.5 SECONDS!

INDEPENDENT AND FAB; TUTU

I go threw my emails almost daily and yes I do get a lot of request for reviews from everything. I fell in love with tutu jewelry and designs. The store is named after it's owner Tulani and has been open since the summer of 2011. I placed my order and in about 3 days there was my package all boxed and pretty. I loved my earrings and received great compliments on them the entire night. So if you're in the mood for something new and funky TUTU is definitely a place to look. All items on the site are on sale ranging from $5 to $20! enjoy divas!





STEAL: SAM EDELMAN & SECRETS OF A SHOPPER

Well I have said this on several occasions where you live has a lot to do with what's offered to you. I learned that along time ago. I  personally love shopping at places like ROSS,TJMAXX AND COURSE MARSHALL'S. I have learned to venture out of my local area to "POSH" locations because honey I walked into TJMAXX  on south beach and was greeted by YSL, BCBG, MIU MIU, BURBERRY AND ETC. on my venture the other day to Marshall's I discovered these SAM EDELMAN SPIKED HEEL FOR $79!!!!! let's just say I couldn't snatch them things up quick enough. I had to go almost 20 miles out for some fashionable items but it was worth while after seeing these. I went back two weeks later and the black ones were there as well! I wonder why they think they can't place items like this in local stores or urban areas. Instead they put things like baby phat, coogi, south pole etc. Not to sound rude or mean but can a sista get some fashion in my area please and thank you! until then I'm traveling wherever I need to be to get my fashion fix!


secrets of a tjmaxx/ marshalls shopper

At TJ Maxx and Marshalls you can expect to find everything from designer clothes to furniture. Marshall's is known to restock each night and a weekly excursion is a must for bargain savvy fashionistas.
10 TJ Maxx/Marshall's Shopping Secrets.....

1. Don't be surprised if you find the same merchandise at T.J. Maxx and Macy's on the same day but with a significant price difference. That's because T.J. Maxx is an off-price buyer, which means they benefit from ordering mistakes made by mainstream retailers and over-production of items by the clothing makers.

Off-price companies buy that excess merchandise. So if a vendor has enough fabric to produce 600,000 blouses but a department store only ordered 500,000, off-price buyers will purchase the extra 100,000 blouses. It doesn't necessarily mean that T.J. Maxx's inventory is from last season. They promise that at least 85 percent of it is in season.

2. T.J. Maxx, whose parent company also owns Marshalls and Home Goods, is the largest off-price retailer in North America and competes closely with Ross and Big Lots.

3. T.J. Maxx buyers only look for merchandise that can sell for up to 60 percent less than what the department stores sell it for.

4. The only sales you'll see at T.J. Maxx are at the end of the season when all the merchandise that hasn't sold goes on clearance. Anything that isn't sold at clearance is donated to charities.

5. Buyers for T.J. Maxx negotiate with more than 10,000 vendors in more than 60 countries for merchandise.

6. Despite popular perception, less than 5 percent of T.J. Maxx's inventory is imperfect.

7. T.J. Maxx gets three to four shipments of 10,000 new items each week.

8. T.J. Maxx has a high-end boutique called Runway at Maxx within some of its stores to sell clothes from American and European designers. New shipments come in from abroad weekly.
9. T.J. Maxx sells 14-carat gold, sterling silver and semi-precious stones.

10. You can sign up for "What's In" alerts, which are heads-up from other shoppers when they spot certain designers like Dooney & Bourke and Roberta Gandolfi at the local T.J. Maxx.

PEPLUM TIME FOR MY CURVES


HEADACHE!


Hello Diva's,

Well I have been taking advantage of all the 4th of July sales and boy did I find some nice things one of which came from every curvy women's favorite place ASOS. I have never really ordered from the CURVE section because honestly their clothes run huge and their main range clothes are right up my alley. I just loved this blue peplum skirt and snatched it up immediately!

I loved the color and everything in between so when hanging out on a night of dinner and laughs I decided to pull it out.

I paired my skirt with a white tank top some cute leopard heels via Marshalls' by Guess and a Clutch. Now comes the headache upon my the end of my night. I felt a draft and you wouldn't believe that It has ripped clean down the seam of the back. I was soooooo upset and sad I hate when I love something and it let's me down. I contacted ASOS and they refunded me immediately and even told me to keep the merchandise.





WHERE TO GET A REPLICA HEEL?

Now I love Macy's and Bakers but sometimes you don't feel like shelling out $100 plus for a replica  because that's exactly what they are (i.e. jessica simpson, steve madden,guess etc). let's be honest fashion has a way of repeating itself just like everything else. If you pay close attention you would know that the ever so popular jeffrey campbell shoes are actually sometimes knocks offs of  other more expensive designs (see pic).
so what are we really paying all the money for? the name? if you think about it jeffery is at the bottom of couture high end fashion poll. so I said that to say this why not try a  replica shoe? The comfort may not be the same as a high quality shoe but the design is what we really go for in the end. If you purchase shoes that aren't that great in quality I strongly suggest in purchasing some  gel pads especially made for heels they work wonders in any shoe. I don't skimp on bags I'm pretty sure you've heard my rants on knock off bags. I don't agree with them never have never will. The is a difference between similar and bootleg. The brand of the shoe or price doesn't always gurantee comfort because contrary to popular belief red bottoms (christian louboution) hurt like HELL!

SO LET'S GET DOWN TO FUN!
