New Orleans or, NOLA as folks lovingly call it, is one of my absolute favorite cities in the world! Every time I touch down in that magical city I instantly feel at home. The food, the culture, and of course, the incredible people, make me feel like I belong there.
I had the amazing opportunity to visit my home-away-from-home on a Catherines blogger getaway, with my new found blogger babes, Jeniese of The Jenesaisquoi, and Jolene of Boardroom Blonde. While we experienced all of the wonderful things New Orleans has to offer, we wore some gorgeous pieces from Catherines.
NOLA brings to mind everything from bold fun prints, to non-fussy and casual looks. I was happily surprised to find Catherines had that and more! I picked out all of my pieces after seeing a few on my blogger friends outfits. I wanted to steal the clothing right off their backs, LOL!
Let’s get right down to my favorite item: the jeans! I’ve talked about my struggle finding the perfect pair of jeans. Catherines has it! I absolutely loved the fit. They were comfortable and hugged my curves to perfection.
I have a small confession; I’m a super lazy dresser. I’m a fan of finding an outfit, and getting dressed all in ten minutes. Especially, in the warmer months. My go to outfit is the maxi dress. When it comes to maxi dresses in basic colors, or bold prints, Catherines has you covered! I loved that I was able to explore the city in a simple dress that not only made me look good, but I was super comfortable!
For the first time in forever, I wore an all-white outfit, and not only felt extra cute, but once again, comfortable. White can often be unforgiving and show everything, but these pants looked awesome on me! The girls flooded me with compliments, so I must have done something right!
My absolute favorite outfit, outside of the jeans, was this gorgeous floral print fringe dress. This dress is perfect for a night out with your bae, or seeing your ex at a party, and making them regret every bad thing he or she has ever done to you (wink). This dress is definitely a head turner, and a must for every curvy girl. It made me want to go dancing, even though I can’t two step to save my life (trust it’s not a sight you want to see, LOL).
If you’re looking for a place that instantly makes you fall in love go to New Orleans. I truly enjoyed myself there. And, if you want to look good while you soak in the city, wear Catherines!

Hey guys! I’m back with GREAT news! After the huge success of the Golden Confidence Pool Party I’ve decided to throw one more event filled with fun and positivity, a Ugly Sweater Christmas Party! Growing up down south, Ugly Sweater Christmas parties were a super fun way to connect with friends and family. We would decorate our sweaters the tackiest we could possibly make it, play games, eat tons of bad food and exchange gifts. It was truly a great way to enjoy my favorite holiday.
Some of you may remember the Ugly Sweater Christmas Party Chante from Everything Curvy and Chic and Shaina from Out of the Corner had a few years ago. We had such a great time, I had to bring it back.
The event takes place, Saturday December 12th from 8pm-12am, at LMHQ. There will be food, giveaways, drinks, games, a DJ, fun photo booth and vendors selling last minute Christmas gift for your loved ones. Also, there will be a contest for the ugliest sweater, most creative, and funniest sweater, so bring your A game! Early bird tickets are 25 dollars and it includes the price of food and drink specials. After those tickets are sold, the price will go up.
Christmas is also about giving to those in need. We are asking every attendee to bring one or two can, dried or boxed food item for City Harvest Food donation.
