Handbag Collection 

You guys, this is a handbag collection post!

Rather than wait till I own all the high-end handbags that I aspire to own, I decided that I would show you what I’m working with right now. This post is up to the minute because it includes new purchases, and it’s a post that I will say I’m happy to share.

I like to make sure that my handbags are a compliment to my dresses and to my shoes. They don’t have to be matchy-matchy (because that would be weird), but they do have to add a little something to what I’m wearing. One thing I don’t do, which might be different or the same as other people, is seasonal handbag changes. I don’t change bags seasonally because I would much rather wear everything I own whether it’s Spring, Summer, or Winter. So, I pick bags that I think work 365 days out of the year. And uh, I have also been gifted with bags that I think work 365 days out of the year.

Although I own a good number of handbags, there are some high-end bags, as I said, that I have both of my eyes on (more on that later). I guess I’ll need a bigger closet to accommodate the collection that I want. And I guess that I might have to give some bags away to make room for new ones (though there are few bags I would never be able to part with) when I reach the pinnacle when it comes to my handbag collection.

Here’s a good look into my handbag collection as it stands now… Continue reading

The Ten Commandments of Curvy Girl Style

The Betrothed by John William Godward

Aside from being a foodie and a lover of beauty, style, art, culture, literature, and food, I am also proud card carrying member of the High And Mighty Regal Amazing Ass Society (HAM-RAAS). We are a very proud, royal, and well dressed society that is full of people who are interested in looking amazing from head to foot. We take great pride in our curves, defend them to the ends of the earth, and we appreciate the revere and awe which they inspire.

If you’re interested in joining us at HAM-RAAS there are some rules that you must follow (aside from uh, being curvy); these are rules which have ensured that our esteemed society continues to flourish and prosper (with a growth that we have cultivated since the beginning of time and will continue to do for decades and centuries to come).

But before I share our values and creeds, I’d like to introduce you to some of our high profile members…
