There’s nothing better than a sleek LBD in your closet. One that you can count on to wear for almost any event and occasion. Well ladies, this dress from City Chic is one of those LBDs! There are so many things that I love about this dress. The first, and probably most obvious, are the polka dots. How adorable is the mesh polka dot overlay?! It’s subtle in that it keeps within the all black color scheme of the dress. However, because it is mesh, it adds a super chic design element that makes the dress that much more special.

I also love the high-low hem that flows away from the body and further highlights the mesh. It gives the dress so much life and movement that glides in the wind as you walk. It’s also very flattering for the dress to be fitted throughout the waist and then expand out to give you a really nice silhouette.

Like all LBDs, this dress is super versatile. I wanted to garment to shine so I kept my styling pretty simple. However, I could wear this over and over in different ways to suit the occasion. For instance, I could rock a simple moto jacket and booties for a more edgy look. I could also wear this dress with a blazer and pumps for a more sophisticated look. However, I decide to style it, the most important thing is that I have options. Plus, this is a great transition piece as we head into the heart of Fall and into Winter. All around, this is a great dress to own if you are looking to ramp up the classics in your wardrobe!

Gift of Style

November 25, 2018


Happy holidays everyone! I hope that you all had a blessed and enjoyable Thanksgiving! We are officially full steam ahead to Christmas, which is the peak of the holiday hustle and bustle. Decorating, buying gifts, attending holiday parties, etc. can be a joyous time of the year but it can also be stressful. The last thing that you want to be is to be overwhelmed this holiday season. So, the best thing to do is to be able to shop one place for all of your holiday needs.

JCPenney is that one-stop shopping destination offering a variety of stylish and affordable fashion and home decor merchandise. I have always loved shopping there because they have such high-quality, stylish pieces at great values. And when I say “great value”, I mean absolute steals! Shopping at JCPenney is allows you the ability to get a little bit of everything. You can shop for great gifts for your loved ones, pick up some chic home decor, and treat yourself while you’re at it (my favorite part).

For instance, while “scouting gifts for my family” (I really wasn’t but let’s pretend I was), I stumbled on this look that I’m rocking here. This animal print top from Worthington was only $15, and these cabaret red trousers, also from Worthington, were only $23! So since I got such great deals on those, I decided to take a peak at the accessories as well to complete the look. And what did I find?! More great deals! These block heeled sandals were only $19.99 and this Liz Clairborne purse was $28. That means altogether, this entire outfit from head to toe was less than $100. That’s truly “Style and Value for All”.

It’s no secret that red is the quintessential color of the holidays, so it’s almost mandatory to wear it in some shape or form this season. However, you can still put your own flair on it by incorporating some different elements, like a print. That way you can be festive, but also unique. This look can be worn to an office party, get together with your girlfriends and much more. It’s holiday style…with a twist.

Be sure to shop JCPenney’s full plus size selection and don’t forget to check out the holiday decor while you’re at it! Right now, you can enjoy an extra 30% off when you spend $100 and 25% off when you spend under $100 with promo code HOLIDAY8.

TrendyCurvy Travels: Napa

I’m just coming to the end of my travels up to the Bay Area. I got to spend a few up in Napa for the first time and had a great time. As always, I wanted to share my experiences and give you all of the details about my travels. So without further adieu, let’s get into it!

Where I Stayed

Napa is marked with many luxury options for lodging. There are actually several different areas within Napa Valley that you can stay, each with their own unique offerings. I narrowed my search down to either staying in downtown Napa or a neighboring town called Yountville. From what I gathered, Yountville is where many of the wineries are with some hotels having views of the vineyards. It also seemed to be more laid back and on the quieter side. Downtown Napa was said to be more happening, being closer to “nightlife” (and I use that term very loosely), as well as tasting rooms and restaurants. Since it was my first time, I decided to go with the latter option to be in the heart of Napa.

After reviewing many different locations, I decided to book a room at the Archer Hotel. I cannot say enough about this hotel. It is beautifully designed and decorated, centrally located, and has great customer service.

When I envisioned a place to stay in Napa, I thought of a cozy, yet modern room with a fireplace to sip wine and unwind at night. This had all of that and more. Everything from the dreamy canopy bed, to the oversized balcony, to the huge soaking tub just fit what I was looking for perfectly.
