still spinning

Last week was probably the busiest week of the year for me; I was in New York with appointments, press previews, blogger events, and lunch meetings--it all sounds very glamorous until you're living it. By the time Saturday rolled around, I was so exhausted I could barely move. That night, I decided against heels and instead paired my new ASOS dress (on sale here) with F21 flats I found at the last minute.

The amazing people at Indique Hair were kind enough to give me a complimentary sew in, and I'm obsessed. I told them I wanted something big and curly, and it literally came out looking like my own hair, but better. I got two packs of the Bounce Coil Curl, and styled it exactly how I style my curls. This is my first experience with Indique, and it's definitely the best quality hair I've ever used. Their hair is not cheap, but it is worth it! I'll upload a YouTube video with more info soon.

ModCloth Plus Sizes

Last week I went to ModCloth's plus size launch event, and I can't tell you how refreshing it was to hear from a team 100% committed to making great plus size clothing. Though they've offered plus sizes for a while now, they acknowledged the need to make things better and have spent the past year researching what plus size women want and perfecting fit issues. If you've had problems with their size chart in the past, know that they have revamped everything and starting now, their plus items should fit much more true to size.  They're totally open to constant improvement, welcome feedback, and encourage women to share reviews, pictures, and information on how each item fits. Make sure you check out their site if you haven't lately!

I wore a Dorothy Perkins blazer (on sale here), Forever21 jeans and top, and Aldo heels:

(I did cut my hair, but not that much! It's pinned back.)
PS- For those of you that loved the ASOS Maternity swing dress I wore recently, they just added it to the Curve collection, but it's already sold out in white! Black is available here
