I know some curviebirdies don’t wear shorts, but we can!! I just started wearing shorts last season, and it really feels good. I think we can dress up and rock shorts just as fly as anyone else!!!
So how did I do? Would you have paired the orange shorts with the blue striped tank?
Check out the other Style Me Friday bloggers at Fashionista Next Door and tell me how I compare!!

Happy Hump day CurvieBirdies. Last week I was quite disturbed by the statements of Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Michael Jeffries. According to this Botox clown, "In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don't belong (in our clothes), and they can't belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."
Dude, are you kidding me? Not all cool kids are a size 10 and below. If he thinks that way, I doubt that Abercrombie & Fitch will continue to be successful as a brand. There have been tons of media outrage over these comments as well. One movie producer decided to give homeless people some Abercrombie & Fitch clothing to wear, making the brand #1 in the homeless sector!!!
Also, a Washington, DC women actually packed up all her childrens Abercrombie & Fitch clothing and returned them all to the CEO's office saying that her cool, beautiful, thin children will never wear his brand again!!! Go momma!!!
So what are your thoughts about these comments? If you are a CurvieBirdie that can wear a size 10 or less, does this change your view on the brand? Do you support the CEO's vision?

This weekend I went to the 3rd Annual Derby Brunch and Hatwalk. It was a morning of fabulous fashions, hats, and lovely ladies! It was so refreshing being around positive women in a setting like that. This event was presented by T.R.I.P.S. which is a non-profit that helps benefit urban communities across the nation.
Take a look at the gorgeous ladies and their hats!!
The amazing Babyshopaholic looking like Jackie O!!!
Miss Dea Win from Pretty Girls Rock Dresses in her cute birdcage hat.
This Curviebirdie was just too hot for TV!!!! I so love this dress. She said she got it from HSN. I needs to be on HSN if they got dresses like this!!!! She also won the Hatwalk!
So check me out! I am wearing my grandmother’s church hat. Thanks Mo. Flora Dye!!
Hat: $$Borrowed from Granny!!
Nordstrom Rack Dress: $9.90
