Hey guys! :) I was lucky enough to be included in City Chic's second Blogger Lookbook. I'm wearing the Animal Corset Dress, and I absolutely love it! I'm not really a print-wearing kinda girl, but I love the subdued animal print on the slightly shimmery denim. :)

You can check out a bunch of other bloggers rock their City Chic pieces in the Blogger Lookbook here! :)

Anyway, I never figured myself for the obsessive type, but I'm strangely "dedicated" to finding all the elusive Missoni for Target collab pieces. I can't wait to share some of my finds with you guys! :D Word on the street is that they're planning to re-release items just in time for the holidays!
Sneaky sneaky, Target. Well played.

Yours, Etc.

P.S. Did you hear? CurvyGirlChic was mentioned in People Stylewatch's Nov 2011 issue! :D hehe! 

nothing to lose

I had a whole post ready to go, talking about how obsessed I am with finding odds and ends from the Missoni x Target collaboration, chunky knits, and all the goodies I want to bust out for Fall, but the news of Steve Jobs' passing has overshadowed all my usual frivolity.

In memory of Steve Jobs, I wanted to post one of my favorite quotes. This came from the commencement address he gave at Stanford university in 2005. I try to always keep it in mind when making choices, and it's led me to some of my favorite moments in life. I hope it can do the same for you.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." 
— Steve Jobs
