Don't make me over

Monday, July 26, 2010

So I am going to take a more serious note on today's post because the subject is something that is near and dear to my heart. I recently came across the photographs of Crystal Renn in the Fashion for Passion campaign and much like everyone else I thought "What the hell??"

Some how the model who has openly spoken about battling an eating disorde and over exercising has been taken from this very healthy size to the shocking image to the right.

Although weight is something that most people try not to discuss I feel like Crystal is a normal size. Given the journey that she has taken to get to a healthy place it seems a little sad to reduce her size when she's already thin. The more that we give the image of "thin is beautiful" the more that average size girls are going to feel like they are too big. I applaud Crystal for speaking out and telling everyone that she was unhappy with the images. Don't get me wrong, the pictures and the photographer is amazing but it's time to let the "thin is in" image go. With that said I'm not an advocate for being overweight either but I do feel like we need to move towards being confident and loving our natural selves. Most of all that we should be HEALTHY and strive to maintain health and not worry so much about a clothing size.

Fashion is fun and Fashion for Passion is a great organization but sometimes there are underlying issues that should be addressed. I hope that those of you that read this blog feel like you are beautiful and can look in the mirror and find things that you love about yourself. Have a fabulous and beautiful day!

Zip it!

Saturday, July 24, 2010

While shopping today I kept seeing guys staring at me. I thought it was because I looked nice but I find out that I have shopped for most of the day with my fly alllllll the way down! Not only was it down but I find that it is broken so I can't even fix the issue. I was embarrassed but now I know why it's important to always wear cute underwear! This blog is dedicated to all things zippers...starting off with the top 11 ways to tell someone their fly is down (this would have helped!!)

Cute ways to tell someone their fly is down:
11. Your fly is down....simple right??
10. Your beer store is open (this gives me the creeps but I chuckled when I read it lol)
9. Your elevator went down
8. Are you afraid of heights?? because your fly is low.
7. I know you love me, but I don’t need to see all of you.
6. Our next guest is someone who needs no introduction...
5. You’ve got a security breach at Los Pantalones.
4. You left the barn door open and the horse is getting out.”
3. The cucumber has left the salad.

Shoe drama...

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Dear Find Me Fabulous,
Can you find me some non old looking 3-4 inch heels in wide width?
Ms. D (fashionable101)
Hello Ms. D!

First off I would like to thank you for being our first question to be answered on the blog! Thank you for your participation and for following us on twitter.

To answer your question, finding a fashionable shoe that is in a wide width style can be one of the most challenging things possible. For some reason it is assumed that if you have a wide foot you only like to wear slippers and work shoes. Unfortunately if you are young and have an active social life you want shoes that pop and add a little character to your wardrobe...quite frankly I don't blame you!
I found a few shoes that you might like and a few companies that offer shoes in wide width. Not knowing the exact outfit that you will be wearing I chose shoes that come in a variety of colors and that have different toe shapes so I hope that this helps you.

If you are feeling like a rock star this shoe called the Black Portia Heel might be perfect for you. Available at Torrid for $39.00 (did I mention they are on sale?) They are designed to fit a wider foot and a a larger calf.

This shoe is by Gabriella Rocha Averie and can be found at If you are looking for something a little more tame it is also available in black, black patent leather, blue, purple, grey and many other colors. The heel is 3 1/2 inches and are priced at $49.95.
Both website have a large selection of shoes that are wide width and that are fashionable as well.
Good luck and stay fabulous!!

I have been a horrible blogger but when life calls, you have to answer. While I've been away I have decided to make a few changes to the blog. I will be posting a few times a week to give my readers a chance to read and catch up on the articles that have been written. I will still post the fabulous facts but they will be once a week instead of each and every day.

I will be also doing a look of the week and style and fashion reviews. These things are the same that every fashion blog has so to change it up I will be asking for you, my readers to write in with your fashion questions and ordeals or even fashion mishaps. If you have a question I will post it and answer it and you will also get feed back from other readers as well.

What I am the most excited about are the fashion designer interviews that are yet to come!

To email me your questions, stories, or suggestions please email me at Also find us on facebook by searching Find me Fabulous. Like us so you can stay fabulous!!

Fabulous Fact of the Day!!

The “Gibson Girl” look, popularized in 1890 by Charles Dana Gibson, came to symbolize the sensible American girl’s ideal image.

In ancient Egypt, the sandal demonstrated a person’s rank in society. Slaves either went barefoot or wore crude sandals made from palm leaves. Common citizens wore sandals of woven papyrus, consisting of a flat sole tied to the foot by a thong between the toes. But sandals with pointed toes were reserved only for the higher stations of society, and the colors red and yellow were taboo for anyone below the aristocratic rank.

Marie Antoinette was modest about her body so she wore gowns which buttoned all the way up to the top of the neck. She was so modest, in fact, that she wore these gowns even while bathing!

Kim Kardashian receives a wax figure

Monday, July 5, 2010

Wouldn’t it be every girls dream to have their very own wax figure? The newest celeb to be replicated at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum is the one and only Kim Kardashian. If you follow her on Twitter you know that she’s been keeping her followers (me included) in suspense with her tweets. One mentions her being measured and another that she’s been working on a top secret project, she later revealed that she has a wax figure being made! The figure looking almost identical to her wears a pink Herve Leger bandage dress that she is famous for and long black hair that she is famous for.

How close do you think the figure is to real life??

Fabulous fact of the day!

And, at the end of the 15th century, Charles VIII of France tried to find more comfortable shoes for his feet, one of which had 6 toes. He had shoes designed with a square toe, which came to popularity immediately after he began wearing them.

In the 18th century it was even considered fashionable to wear fake eyebrows made from mouse skin! As mice were caught they were skinned and cleaned and shaped into eyebrows which the well-to-do and fashion plates of the times glued over their real brows.

Style Watch: Military chic

One of the hottest looks this summer is military chic which incorporates the greens and nudes and brings back the look of the cargo pants. I have yet to see a look that is really "chic" until now. While browsing through the Express website I came across this look and fell in love right away.

Did you know the skirt is the second oldest women's garment in history? It's preceded only by the loin cloth in age. In Egyptian times, the skirt was worn by both men and women which can be verified by looking at drawings from ancient times.

Would you??

I am from Southern California where we have two seasons: spring and summer while browsing through my local forever 21 I came across and item that stunned me. Leather Shorts! Living in a place where it is usually 75 degrees and up I just want to know how you feel about this style??

Fabulous Fact of the Day!

In Cleopatra's time berries and other natural ingredients were used to enhance the face. Nowadays different ingredients are used in the making of colors for the face. Today's average woman uses 6 pounds of lipstick in a year but few of them know that one ingredient frequently used in manufacturing lipsticks is fish scales.
