OneStopPlus Group just launched a full scale plus size lingerie website fullbeauty.com. It looks like a plus size lingerie superstore, with bra sizes from 36B to 50N. I went on the website and checked it out for myself. It looks great. Where was this years ago when I was struggling to find bras? Prices range fro $9.99 to $129.99. The new website carries bras, panties, hosiery, shapewear, slips, camisoles, robes and sleepwear. So check out fullbeauty.com Photo from fullbeauty.com.
Amazon’s MYHABIT.COM just launched a plus size shopping sample sale section to their website. The sales will last 4 days or until the clothes sell out. The clothes will be sized from a 14-24.

The first sale officially ends October 1st, so get in where you fit in. You can login into the MYHABIT.COM site with your regular Amazon information.
I first met designer Imani Whyte during New York Fashion Week through my friend Najee Wilson. Whyte showed my some photos of her work, and I was hooked. I knew I had to bring it straight to you. Here is an interview I did with the designer, and when you get done reading it, go support her Facebook page.
The first two trench coats: Women’s Canvas Trench Coats $39.50 The last two trench coats: Women’s Skirted Trill Trench Coats $54.94
With the crazy hot then cold then rainy then sunny weather we have been having lately, it might be time to invest in a transitional trench coat to help you get through this wacky weather. These trench coats from Old Navy are perfect and affordable who don’t have a Burberry budget.
I don’t care how many designers, faux designers, or whoever has created or recreated this Chinese Laundry Women’s Hide And Seek Platform Bootie. I love it, and it is affordable and chic. Get into this for only $59.95. Also try wearing this shoe with colored tights this fall, to give yourself an interesting look. Photo from Endless.com.
So you all know how I can’t stand Nicki Minaj. Well now she went and made me dislike her even more. This fried chicken wing necklace is straight ignorant foolywang fuckery at its finest. I really can’t with her right now. Everything she has been wearing as of late has gotten so ridiculous. I can’t even….I just… I guess? No! No! No and No! Or as the French say, “Non!” There is just no way around this. It sux! 🙁 Picture from Refinery29.
On Fashions Night Out, before the cops shut down Spring Street, I headed to Atelier Minyon with my good pal Najee Wilson. I introduced him to my friends at the jewelry store. If you follow this blog, you know that I try to visit Atelier Minyon every time I go to New York. The jewelry Alp Sagnak designs is so fantastical, because of the fantasy, Turkish, and rock and roll influences that grace the jewelry. These are a few of the new pieces I saw that night. Some of these pieces are one of a kind. The snake ring in the middle is my favorite because it is so unexpected and you can wear it on two fingers. If you are interested in jewelry from Atelier Minyon, check out the website.
R&B soul singer Vesta Williams passed away yesterday. She was so beautiful and full of talent. This is my favorite song of hers.

SOOOOO Najee Wilson from Tresfraisnajee, and I did a ton of stuff on Fashions Night Out. I totally posted pics of our trek across Manhattan on Tumblr., so you can check those out there and on Najee’s blog. Anyway, one of our last FNO stops was at the Opening Ceremony store at The Ace Hotel. OC had a street carnival where I won a cute plaid bowtie and Najee and I starred in a little video. That’s right! That is us in the video towards the beginning and the end, and it was a complete blast. The confetti I threw got stuck on my face and in Najee’s hair. This may be TMI, but after I took my bra off that night, I totally made it rain confetti in my hotel room. I think that qualifies as a good ass night!

If you know me, then you know I am a fan of the desert boot. Well… Old Navy created three different styles of the desert boot and mixed it with several different colors at a very affordable price. Each version costs $36.94, but the wedge is on sale online for $34.00 this week. If I were you, I would scoop up all three as soon as possible. Images from Old Navy.
Pair this outfit with a white tee or a white button down and you will be set. This is the kind of outfit where you can switch the pants out for dress, keep the shoes and jacket, and again you will be set. I love outfits where you can find multiple uses for it. Plus the jacket gives you a classic Chanel type look that you can wear again and again. Photos from the various links below.

During my last few days in New York City, I went to Center 548 in Chelsea for The Blonds SS12 fashion show. The room was full of drag queens, Muscle Marys, and celebrities like Bam Margera, Amanda Lepore, Patricia Field, Johnny Weir, and much, much more. The Blonds are known for fun, so the super hot crowd was ready to party.
