Hiyaaaas!! I'm back in Boston for August! It's so nice to be back--nothing like a little staying-at-home-with-the-parents to remind you how precious independence is! I love my parents like crazy but I can't do the 24/7 family-time thing.

 Anyhoo! This is another of my Asos purchases! It wasn't exactly a steal at $48, but the fabric is amazing and it has quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces. The jersey material is thick but not stifling, and it's structured enough to not cling to every bump. I've already worn it dressed up with a statement necklace and bracelet and heels, as well as just with sandals and a cute cross body bag. I love how versatile it is! :)

I can't wait for the rest of my Asos items to arrive! :) Has anyone else posted about their Asos Curve purchases?? I've been so out of the blog-o-sphere this past week, I'd love if you guys commented with your links! :D

Carmakoma A/W 2010 Lookbook: Carpe Diem


 all images from carmakoma


These are just a few of my favorite looks from Carmakoma's A/W 2010 Lookbook, Carpe diem.

In their own words, "the new Carpe diem collection by carmakoma is a celebration of the brave femininity...The woman in carmakoma's new collection is ready to face the world. She welcomes any surprise the day might offer and does not hesitate to seize the moment and stand up for what she believes in."

I don't know about seizing the moment, necessarily, but I'll definitely be seizing those clothes! I can't wait--the new collection hits stores in just 10 days! :)

Will you guys be shopping the collection?

I love this top so much I bought two. Just in case. Plus, it was only $15 when I bought the second one. lol. Might as well have a backup! :D
If you guys haven't already heard, Asos is having a MASSIVE clearance sale--plus and additional 10% off if you use code ASOSTreats! It expires midnight 7/22 (UK time zone) so get shopping! :)

Anyhow, this is what I wore to work (glamorous, I know) and for happy hour after! I love happy hour. <3


Btw, I know via Twitter that a bunch of you have been making Asos purchases! What'd you guys snag?? :D

I love Nordstrom. Seriously. They may have a horrendous plus-size section most of the time, but the shoooooes. ♥ Snagged both the heels (+another pair...debuting tomorrow!) and the leather jacket at the exclusive anniversary pre-sale! :) I'm so in love with the jacket--sooo buttery soft and comfy. I can't wait to wear this when it's not a million degrees outside! hehe ♥ 
(Yes, I'm that impatient person who wears now clothes the day after she buys them...
...regardless of weather appropriateness)

Eek, so much stuff coming up that I want to share with you guys! I just need to get the go-ahead to share! :D

Also, I can't wait to go back to Boston! I ♥ Cali and no city would ever replace it, but being away from the bf for what... 2 months? It sucks. 

Anyone hit up the Nordies sale?? It's going on now for the public! :)

Errr...sorry for the totally blank/somber face--I took the photos myself and frankly, smiling at a machine just makes me feel awkward and strange, lol!

Anyhow, I love that this sweater-y top thing is sheer--It's actually more sheer than comes across in the photos. I paired it with a black tank and high-waisted skirt for work, and left the tank on when I switched to shorts, but I can totally see someone wearing this without the tank and paired with a black miniskirt for a night out.

Topshop Asher Boots for sale!




SADNESS. My new boots don't fit. :( I ordered a UK9/US11.5 and they definitely fit like size 9 or small/narrow 10.  

They're gorgeous and would be so amazing if they actually fit!!! :(
If anyone is interested in them, I'll sell them for $80 and ship these anywhere in the US for free.
They're brand new/totally unworn/not even laced up yet and you'd save the $15 shipping you'd otherwise pay by ordering from Topshop.

Just let me know within a few days otherwise I'm just gonna suck it up and ship them back to the UK!

If you're interested, email me at curvygirlchic (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks! :)

waaaaaaaaaaaant!

Topshop F/W 10-11 Campaign.

If Topshop stocked extended sizes, I'd live in an alley so I could spend all my money this upcoming collection.
