I am forever looking for clothing that fits my body. I know that nearly every woman has her “problem area” that makes shopping a challenge, but for me, it’s a little different. I have dangerous curves. No matter what size I am, or what stage of my life I have been in, my chest gets in the way and my hips don’t lie- this girl is not made for many of the cuts put out by clothing designers. This means that many of the things I buy hang on me like drapes, and don’t show off the curves that I’d like to.

The biggest issue for me is my chest- which is (in a word) large. Shirts and dresses are tight, don’t button or zipper, or are pulled up higher then they should (or lower, showing off more then I’d like to) making them look odd. I usually have to go up a size or two, which can make me look heavier then I am, and I’ve never met the woman who wants to look larger then she is.

That’s the thing I love most about IGIGI- they make clothing for women with curves, bodies, and the average American woman. The “average” American woman is a size 14. So why can’t we find clothes when we go to the stores and malls? Not clothes that fit or flatter, anyway. Options are often limited, and many times what is offered makes you look like a couch you’d find in your grandmother’s living room. No thanks!

Kohl’s for Mother’s Day

Looking for the perfect place to shop for Mom?  Or maybe your wife- since some of the kids are too small to shop on their own, dad’s or partners will have to help out a little. One of my favorite stores to shop at has always been Kohl’s- while I will shop anywhere that strikes my fancy, there are only a handful of stores that I consider myself a loyal shopper of, and Kohl’s is one of them.  Check out my closet (and those of my husband and son as well) and my housewares if you’d like to verify, haha.  I love Kohl’s because they have everything for everyone in your family, as well as housewares, outdoor supplies and furniture, even travel gear.

They also have awesome sales, you can get Kohl’s cash (free money to spend in the store just for making purchases) to use, and shopping is easy both online and in stores as well. Also, as a bonus, my son often gets to choose a stuffed toy at the end of the register if he’s a good boy the whole trip.  Now, I always expect good behavior from the kiddo, but with the high quality and adorable toys and books that Kohl’s offers for just 5$ (and the net profits going to organizations that benefit children) I never mind spending it and letting him have one.

Win $100 to Kohls and 1 Dress 3 Ways

I will soon be leaving on a cruise, and I am loving the  Kohl’s Collection from Peter Som for Design Nation. The items will be perfect to take with me as I travel and visit several islands.  Inspired by St. Barths, the clothing will be right at home (and make me feel so as well).

Peter Som’s clothing is simple and pretty. I love the mix of classic lines and feminine colors for a fun, fresh look. As you can guess, I did end up buying that black and white dress- I regretted not getting it that night, and ordered it online as soon as it was available.  (They are going to go fast, get yours soon.)

Peter Som For Kohl’s And WIN $100

It is finally spring! The chance to bust out my spring and summer wardrobe is here. I have been admiring the 2014 spring line of several designers, plotting my new additions and I have fallen in love with a few items in Kohl’s Spring Collection from Peter Som for Design Nation. I love that each piece was designed with the confident and elegant woman in mind.

Peter Som’s sketches are no nonsense and can be made into a stunning yet simple dress. I love that he mixes classic lines and feminine colors for a fresh look that reminds me of a sunny carefree day.

I have had my eye on this fit and flare dress. It is elegant, classy and modest. I am a sucker for stripes… if you didn’t catch that already, and I love that I could wear sandals or heels with this dress depending upon the occasion.  Yes, I totally bought it at the presale.  If you check out my last post, you can see some photos of me in my new, fun, colorful dress.  (It’s now available, buy it online or in stores.)

Peter Som for Kohl’s – Fashion Inspired by Travel

Disclosure- This post about the new Peter Som line for Kohl’s is sponsored.  I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.  All opinions are my own and honest.

With all the travel that I do, it’s always nice to have something fun, light, and breezy to wear.  The new Peter Som collection coming soon to Kohl’s stores and online is perfect for summer days and island lounging.

Peter Som designed a line of clothes for Kohl’s DesigNation inspired by St. Barth’s islands. I guess he likes to travel, too.

polyvoreThe middle outfit and the swatch to the left of it are Peter Som from New York Fashion week.  The other items are some pinks and peaches that I thought would match his collection, especially considering the pink trend of the season.

I received a few samples of the almost available in stores clothes.  They feel silky and soft to the touch, and I’m sure they would be fun to wear.

3 8 14 toys 010After having my son, I (much more quickly then I thought I would have) lost my style.  I went from having fun shopping and picking out my outfits, shoes, and accessories to just grabbing my track pants and t-shirts and going.  Dude- they are totally clean, what’s wrong with that?  Right?  Yeah, right.  Well, I don’t feel as good as I used to, for one.  This year, I am trying to get my body and my style back, and trying to look more like ME and less like…well, like a schlump.

3 8 14 toys 007I was asked to be a Kohl’s Fashion Ambassador-for the next 6 weeks, I will be bringing you weekly posts about Kohls, their new line of St. Berth’s inspired fashion from Peter Som, videos, and amazing giveaways for you as well.  We can learn to bring our sexy back together, and for less then you would think.  I am all about making one piece work in multiple ways, and making style easy.  I’m not an over-primper by any means, so this will be fun for me.
