Penningtons Plus, a Canadian company that ships to the United States, has just released their holiday lookbook. In the lookbook, you will find cute jewelry and basics, nice separates and coats, and pretty lingerie and elegant eveningwear that is perfect for those upcoming holiday parties. My favorite item in the lookbook is the Iridescent Quilted Downfill Jacket. It looks very warm and cozy, which makes it perfect for me. Plus the shiny silver color looks great.
I have been featured on Make Me Over Eb and The Curvy Fashionista.
A few weeks ago I was offered a chance to review some Ugg-like boots by a company called Whooga. Whooga is an Australian company that uses Australian Merino fleece. The boots are made and shipped from China. They did give me a free pair of boots, but as you all know, that doesn’t affect my review.
I love my boots. Unlike my other UGG Australia boots that I own, I don’t have to go up a size because the Whooga boots fit tight on my feet and are true to size. The Merino fleece is so soft and warm. Just like Uggs, these boots keep your feet warm even when the temperature hits 30 below. The shoes look just like my Ugg boots, except they have a Whooga tag on the back.
The only problem I had with them was the fact that the box had been a little bent up from shipping. When I opened my box, the shoes were a little rumpled. Whooga sent the shoes with stuffing and cardboard in them, so that helped a lot. Once I took the boots out of the box and let them stand on their own, they fluffed out. Now they look great.
Whooga boots come in all different sizes, heights, textures, and colors for kids and adults.
Would I recommend this company as an Ugg alternative…Yes!
The good people at Maurices.com were kind enough to give me a gift card. I used it to get some accessories to review. I hope you love the video. I decided to showcase accessories since I am always reviewing clothes.
While perusing their site yesterday, I found out that they are having a Summer Sale. Don’t miss out.

I was asked to review some jeans from Maurices.com. I had never heard of this company before, so I did some quick research and decided to say yes. Maurices is online, and they have physical stores in different cities around the country. They are a woman’s clothing store that sells plus and straight sizes. Maurices has some really cute items for work and play. So check them out!
The jeans that I tried were the Briana Dark Wash Jeans and they cost $34. The fabric on the jeans were ok. It wasn’t too thin or too thick. They have a little bit of a flare leg and even though they are supposed to be mid-rise, they seem to be low-rise for me. I think that is because I have a little bit o’ booty in the back. I did like the jeans though. They had a nice wash, and my dad thought they looked nice. Thanks dad! I would probably buy some jeans from this store again. I would love to be able to find a store near me, but that won’t be happening anytime soon because the nearest store is an hour or so away. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. I took them with my phone. 🙂
My pictures didn’t move over when I moved my blog.
I would take a picture of me in this dress, but I just started school yesterday, and I am leaving for the beach today. Jen from Jen’s Fashion Plus sent me this cute dress that I want to wear with my yellow tights from We Love Colors. The feel of the fabric is nice too. I like when fabric doesn’t itch. I also like the fact that it comes with a belt, so I don’t have to fish around in my belt drawer. LAZY! I really like the fact that it isn’t too short. I can wear the dress to church and not feel the old church lady’s eyes on my back. LOL! Thanks Jen!
