Something to Chirp About: Spanx Jeans!!!

Ya'll know I am an avid Spanx spokesperson. So the other day, I heard that Spanx were going to be coming out with jeans!  I had to thank God and do a little Cogic shout at that news honey!  Where have there jeans been all my life?  Its like Sara Blakey knows what all CurvieBirdies need.  I'm going to call her the CurvieBirdie Whisper-er!!!!

There will be two styles, multiple cuts and three washes and are priced at $148. They promise “thigh-trimming construction” and stretch technology meant to smooth the tummy. 

I am so excited!!  The jeans launch on the Spanx website last week and will be available in department stores Aug. 25!!!

What do you think about Spanx Jeans?  Will you wear a pair?  Do you plan to buy some once available in department stores?

Mamanista Friday: Peplum

Peplum is a CurvieBirdie's best friend!  It covers that "extra" you want hidden, plus it gives more curves for those of us that have a more straight body type.  I will rock this style anyway and anytime!

Mamanista Friday (but on Tuesday): Vests

Last weeks Mamanista Friday look was Vests.  I was already to go, but forgot my camera for pics.  I got it at lunch, but I was not blog fine anymore due to having eaten lunch first.  My mistake!!  However, we do have this fly lady ready to go with her vest challenge!

Miss Erica has made another feature.  I was telling her about the Mamanista Friday challenge, and she wanted to participate.  Another fashion mamanista!! 

Erica is rocking a vest and shiny top, and ya'll know I love shiny things!! Erica purchased these items from Ross.  Gotta love Ross!!!

Erica is inspired by Mamanista, now it's your turn!!!  Have you shown you Mamanista style yet on The Babyshopaholic?

Forever 21 Says Chrissy Teigen is Too Fat!!

I could not believe the news I just read.  Chrissy Teigen, was is the beautiful model married to John Legend, used to be a model for Forever 21.  During one of her shoots there, Chrissy was in the make-up chair getting ready for here shoot.  She got a phone call from her agency telling her that Forever 21 called and said that she was too fat, and that she needed to come back to the office to get her measurements retaken.  Unbelievable!!  She was in the make-up chair!  So rude and disrespectful!

Now since this event accrued, Forever 21 has launched their plus line.  No apology was ever given, but they have realized the need and demand for fuller-figure clothing.  I have very missed feelings about this.  

What are your opinions?

Mamanista Friday: Maxi Dress

I loves me some maxi dresses.  For one, they are very comfortable, and two, they can be dressed up or down.  I wear maxi dress almost daily to work during every season but winter!!  These dresses are and should be a staple item in all CurvieBirdie's wardrobes!!!!!

OOTD: Cas-U-AL Cal

I hope everyone enjoyed that beautiful extended 4th weekend.  Mom Dukes and granny came down, so I had to dress casual to be able to keep up with these ladies!  So my OOTD is all cotton, and I added the jean jacket just to keep arms warm while out in the cold stores shopping.

Birds of a Feather

Ms. Erica has done it again.  This CurvieBirdie is so fly!!!  She is our CurvieBirdie of the week again!  She came in and showed out in her navy jump suit looking like a Greek Goddess.  Please say hello again to this fly girl:

I think this jumpsuit looks really regal.  And, its made with cotton, so it is super comfy.  She purchased it from Ashley Stewards, but it is no longer available.  Sad face!

Do you wear one piece jumpers? How many do you own? Do you like this look?
