I love to people watch, so while traveling for work I took the opportunity to just observe them. People wear anything to the airport in an effort to be comfortable unless they are on business, then they are in suits or business casual attire. Personally, I have to be cute at the airport you never know who you will meet. So what do you wear while traveling? I am glad you asked. I took pictures of a few individuals that got it right.
Be Edgy: You can be edgy and comfy as Martina proves here wearing black over-the-knee riding boots with jean skinnies, rolled up boyfriend blazer and colorful scarf.
One of my biggest pet peeves is woman looking like they just stepped off the short bus when they are at work or out and about. I know I know, being a stylist this should bother me, but it is just starting to get ridiculous. Being busy is no excuse for landing on the “Walmart” video. I know we should not judge a book by its cover but we do, get over it and create a better cover. The point is that your clothing should reflect who you are and show your personality.
Something on my mind... wont somebody please tell me whats RIGHT!
Recently ( since October) I have discovered this renewed interest in hosiery of different prints. I mean from colored fish nets to striped thigh highs... 14 years ago I would of thought nothing of it simply trying to imitate the Babysitters club or Clueless! Awh or even need I say Romy and Michelles highschool Reunion with thier flirty little minis and killer platform sandals perplexed in their boring dead end jobs. Does being young and beautiful in America really pay off. If so can we really afford to be bias of females whom are comfortable with their sexuality and yet just love to exploit their legs?
So I succeeded in being curious.... On December 22, 2011 and December 29th, 2012 I drove to the city to go and check out the Topless Kareoke competition at the Gentlemans Sports Lounge "ALLSTARS" on the North west side of I-H 10. My first experience was awckward at first because I wasnt sure if I would be fashionably attired for the event. To my surprise my costume that I had created was perfect for the occasion. Rehearsing the song: " Something Kinda funny" from the original Spice Girls Album proved to be a perfect act. Now, notice that I mentioned "Topless" Kareoke... ( ha ha ha ha) I ended up wearing a sheer white hankerchief blouse that vaguely showed my pasties... with a black/ neon pink garter belt accompanmied by a tight pair of lace skimpy boyshorts. To top of the look I complimented my feet with glamour glitter nail polish and 6 inch gold wedges. 3 hours prior I manicured and applied nail tips. Left my kinky curls teased and decided to exxagerate my cosmetics with red rouge on my already velomptuous lips! ALL I can say is I looked to die for! For once I wasnt applying cosmetics or dressing some one else.... I was a bit nervous the first 15 seconds and slowly draped of my wool camel colored coat. When I realized I had the audience's attention from their reaction of my costume I began to dance around the left pole then noticing the exotic dancer to my right I began to mimic her and bring her into the act. It was awesome...They chose a 5'7 petitte brunette bombshell that could of easily passed for Lilith or Eve! The song was over before I knew it and I was still singing adlibs adding on to the repetitive chorus when the dj announced for the crowd to give me an applause. All in all I got so caught up in singing that I forgot to take of my sash that was holding my halter top in place! The manager of the club quickly came to introduce himself to me after I went back to my table and asked that I wait till the show was over. He offered me an alcoholic beverage of choice but I refused due to being on meds. So he quickly rebounded and offered a soda or water, which I accepted. He sat with me briefly and we got more acquainted. I soon eased up and began to enjoy the other singers. Over all I had competed with about 7-10 other contestestants... and there were all but maybe 3 or 4 females that sang very well and got into character. The men were just drunk and silly swinging off the poles.... At around 12:45 they announced the 3 winners of the $50.00 rounds. I collected my prize money and then asked to be excused because I didnt want to end up locked out of my friends' apt... they had ironically tested me at the same time. Just before I left the manager had reminded me to return for the next weeks round and informed me that he would be calling me for the $1000.00 round Jan. 12th, 2012! I made it. In one night! I was so excited! I crashed out tired and excited all at the same time... Losing my voice for the next four days. The next morning on friday I put gas in my sisters car and went shopping for my daughters. Mission accomplished.
So, my sister’s finally done it, she’s got hitched with the guy she’s been with for seven years and I couldn’t be more happy for her. I’m even happier that after trying on dress, after dress, after dress and attending more wedding shows that I can count on both hands, she finally was able to find the dress of her dreams.
What are you thinking about this holiday season? Hmm... To be honest I havent been thinking about much. My mother nagging me on the daily has me disillusioned and slightly unmotivated to get into the Christmas cheer. Funny I havent been griping about much either... I am finally settling in the idea of "what ever will be, will be! For my children I had hoped to payoff the WALMART lay away plan for Acer notebooks. Not happening because the part time hours were cut from Saldivars . So Ive continued with employment seeking. May of had some glory today due to completing an application for Billy Bob's Hamburgers and turning it in. Being on leave from college ( IADT) has me some what bored and almost lost. Thank Goodness I re- did admissions for Febuary 2012.
I was the type that would always say: "I would rather strip at a gentlemans club then go back to fast food." Havent had to do a fast food job since I was 15 and 16 years old. Well theres no nudie bars here in this small town. LOL... aside from that I did take the liberty of calling up a few places last night in the city of San Antonio Texas to inquire about auditions to dance. Iron and fate love me... so it would be so ackwardly funny if I ended up doing both!
So heres the scoop. I went through the trouble of actually interviewing a former pro football player about the details concerning dancers in the gentlemans club atmosphere. His name will remain anonymous due to particualar circumstances. He straight out told me that Dancers make their best money doing lap dances ( $20.00 every 5 minutes)... He said it really didnt matter how they looked as long as they knew how to work what they had. He also mentioned that the pole dancing was sort of like window shopping. I couldnt help but entertain the idea if I had what it took. How difficult could it be? Then I thought back to all the wild stories that one of my latin exes had mentioned; even the videos of some of his ex girlfriends werent all that. Yet all of them shared one thing in common: they all moved like fluid. It was almost like slipping into a trance. It was mesmerizing almost addictive to watch their hips. I know it sounds strange but Im just being honest. At that time( 2008) I was a girlfriend in training . The sudden sex appeal that comes with a womans natural curves and yet the dignification of innocense contrasted with nudity.... How ingenious.

I want to share one of my latest shopping experiences with you and I’m sure you’ll be able to find yourself in my scenario. A month or two ago I went searching for a dress to wear to church because I didn't want to wear anything in my closet. Normally, I would order a dress from one of the random catalogs I receive to my home. Macys.com and I have a wonderful love affair going on or I’ll try one of the many overpriced plus size clothing websites. However, I was working on a tight budget and didn’t have time to order online.

Fashion design is defined as the art of the application of design and aesthetics or natural beauty to clothing and accessories. Until the 1950s, fashionable clothing was predominately designed and manufactured on a made to measure or haute couture basis (French for high-fashion). A couture garment was made to order for an individual customer, and was usually made from high-quality and expensive fabric, sewn with extreme attention to detail and finish, often using time-consuming and hand-executed techniques. Notably, look and fit took priority over the cost of materials and the time it took to make.
The cover of US weekly reads “Kim Defends Her Love” and there’s a cheesy picture of a scantily clad Kim K. and her husband Kris Humphries sitting on a beach chair, next to a pool.
First, my question is… Who’s causing her to defend this “Love,” and second, would they please stop?...
Are the industry’s requirements of Plus-Models unrealistic?
Some say that the industry's requirements of plus-models, are completely unrealistic.I recently asked a number of plus-models, the challenges they’ve encountered trying to enter into the world of plus-size modeling, and
the similarities were amazing.
