  • Gold & Leather

    IMG_5336

    Another sunny day in Seattle means this fashion blogger is trying to figure out how to style her normally layered wardrobe. With the Seattle weather gods whispering in my ear…don’t wear anything Natasha, just be cool and free…actually doing my make-up, putting on clothes, shoes and accessories and styling my hair seems like an unlikely thought. But I did it (except for my hair. I didn’t really do anything there.).

    The gold crop top I’m wearing is a fun vintage piece I found thrift shopping for Sasquatch - but it ended up not being quite warm enough for me to willingly sport a crop top – so this is the first time I’m wearing it outside of my apartment. The leather skirt is from SimplyBe (c/o, I also wore it for fall here). Belt and locket necklace are vintage. The cut-out wedges are Seychelles and are very comfortable (even though I think I make other people uncomfortable because I’m about 7 feet tall in them).

    And finally…one note about being curvy and hot weather. I see lots of women who are void of a 26 inch waist who insist on layering up in 85 degree weather. They won’t bare legs or arms (or mid drift) and it’s not because they don’t want to – it’s because they feel uncomfortable showing any skin. First off: girl I feel you. I personally understand that not having toothpick thin legs or bone-like arms means that my summer outfit doesn’t match up to that in popular magazines. But guess what – it’s doesn’t matter. A cute summer outfit is a cute summer outfit – whether it’s hanging loose on a thin frame or hugging on to curves and hips. Wear a tank. Put on that summer dress. Be confident in your body. You look amazing.

    And with that note…I wish you good weather and breezy outfits no matter how small or large your frame!

    Shops Open!

    Also a quick note – I recently updated the Chic Curve Shop with summer dresses and fun shoes – check it out!

  • Simple Summer

    In case you haven’t noticed – or you live in Antarctica – it’s HOT. In fact, it’s really just too hot for clothes (90 degrees in Seattle is like 120 anywhere else) – but we have to wear clothes, otherwise people look at you funny. Also I’m a fashion blogger, so clothes are sort of a requirement (even when I’m sweating profusely while a friend takes my outfit shots under the blazing sun).

    Well enough first world problems. Let’s chat clothes. This dress was a STEAL from Gap (on sale, similar straight size here, similar plus size here) – and it’s lightweight fabric and adorable pink neckline trim makes it the perfect summer go to (plus, the drawstring waist is a big-time-bonus to define curvy or hourglass figures). The jean jacket is a vintage Levis find I picked up at a local thrift shop (cute vintagey one here). Jewels are vintage, Marrin Costello (c/o, purchase here). Shoes are J.Crew (last year, but they just released an updated version of the same wedge here).

    Short and sweet – just like your skirts & shorts should be in this weather. Stay cool, my friends, stay cool.

  • San Francisco & A Blue Hat

    First off, I have to say…I’m completely enamored with San Francisco. It reminds me so much of Seattle – but bigger and more compact; you’ve got more people and more square footage in a smaller area. It’s got the big-city feel paired with charasmatic-city charm, and I almost felt at home strolling down the sidewalks from the sunny Embarcadero waterfront to the shopping district at Union Square.

    Though I was just visiting SF for work, I was able to spend a few hours catching up with the lovely Amanda of Fashionablee Me - a necessity while I was in such close quarters with her! If you’ve never checked out her fashion blog – do your self a favor and head there now. Oh, and did I mention she’s responsible for much of the marketing over at Poshmark? Yea – Amanda has got it going on (with a side of sass – a favorite friend trait).

    If you’ve never had a chance to explore San Francisco – put that on your list of things to do. And bring layers, because just like Seattle and my emotions, the weather tends to be a bit unpredictable!

    My Outfit Details:

    Hat: Forever 21 | Scarf: Zara (old, similar here) | Cross-body bag: Gifted | Sheer top: H&M (old) | Skinny star print jeans: GAP | Ballerina Flats: J.Crew

  • Leather & Leopard

    What’s leather, leopard and striped all over? Me – this past weekend!

    And that’s all the witty banter I have for you (for now).

    The jacket is literally an old man’s vintage bomber jacket I got a thrift shop (cause shit it was 99 cents!). The striped blouse is from Forever21 (plus size here), pants are my favorite skinnies from GAP. My booties are c/o Aldo and have become a fall/winter staple for me. The faux-ostrich bag is a wonderful item that Rehka of Outrage Fashion sent over to me – and I’m completely in love with it! The scarf is an old favorite I picked up in London years ago, and the hair is all mine. That’s right ladies – real Natasha hair.
