Grammy Fashion Review

Happy Monday Ladies and Gents.  Last night were the Grammys, and the stars showed up and showed out honey.  Even the men stepped up their game last night!  Here are some of my favorite looks of the night.

Tamar Braxton was doing it big in this red hot dress with her "who just had a baby?" body!!

Many people had bad things to say about Chrisette Michele's pants suit, but I love how cute and trendy it is.  Do ya'll agree?

Now Christy Teigen did her thing in this gold dress.  She most certainly gave me life when I saw it.  Beautiful!  My most favorite look of the evening hands down.

And look at the new mommy-to-be!!!  Miss Ciara did not miss a step honey in this gold dress!!!  So will always be fly!

Not only did this CurvieBirdie set it off with her performance, but she knocked it out the park in this dress!!!  Like Jamie Fox said, "Blue Ivy mom is hottttttt!!!!"

Maysa has been in the industy for over 20 years, and this CurvieBirdie got her first grammy nom last night!  Congrats to you and she is fierce in thisx black and silver gown.

Can I just say that I am a huge Madonna fan! She has been fashion forward all her career.  I loved her pants suit and how fly she lokks with her son!

Like I said, the men stepped up their game last night!  Hands down, Marc Anthony was the clear male winner in the dress department.  Him so fly!!

So who were ya'll favorites?  Who was best/worst dressed in your opinion?  Who do you think was the best dressed male?

CurvieBirdies Keeping Warm in the City

Over the holidays, I went back to Chicago so that my family could meet my baby doll Morgan!!  This winter is most definitely one of the coldest I ever remember!  The snow and the negative wind chills were so horrible. 

So guess what I got for Christmas?  A Onesies !!  I haven’t worn one of these in forever!  So I thought that Morgan and myself would put on our onesies and snuggle!





My grandmother bought me these pj’s from Costco.  So you can see Morgan and I are keeping warm just fine!!

Do you own feet in pajamas?  If not would you wear them?  How are you keeping warm this season?

Golden Globe Fashions

Last night was a huge night for Hollywood.  Here are for of my favs of the evening


It is the gorgeous and pregnant Kerri Washington!!  Not much to say but she is always beautiful, and not she is glowing with motherhood!

lena dunham

I think Lena Dunham looks so amazing in this Yellow Zac Posen Gown!!  I am not a fan of most of the things she wears, but I think she got it right tonight!!

lupita nyong

Lupita Nyong is doing her thing in this red Ralph Lauren dress.  I love the long red cape!!  she did that!!!

paula patton

I read some bad reviews on this dress Paula Patton is wearing, but I think it is too fly.  Straight loving the exaggerated ruffles on the dress.


Gabourey’s dress is a miss.  It looks good here, but it is not figure flattering.  it is too clingy for her body type.


Here is the side view.  Love her, but this dress is a miss.

Did you watch the Golden Globes?  What were your favorite fashions?  Which stars wooed you? Any fashion misses in your opinion?

CurvieBirdie Has a New Look!!

Hello CurvieBirdies.  Since I had my baby, I decided to change up my look.  I went short hair so that my baby wouldn’t get that long hair in her eyes.  I also lost 30lbs.  I guess pregnancy agrees with me!!



I got this dress from Twelve24 $59 in Decatur, GA.  I wore this to my company holiday party.


Shoes are Steve Madden from DSW $39


Make-up by me!!  So what do ya’ll think?  I haven’t taken out my long weave in years!  Do you like the short look?  Can you see the baby weight loss?
