Maxis in Malibu

El Matador is the yoga class to Santa Monica’s frantic cardio workout. El Matador makes you work as you climb down the steep cliff (slowly, carefully) and down flights of stairs. But once you’re down to the tiny beach, the small strips of sand between majestic rock formations is unequivocally peaceful. Time stops here – and you can breathe, explore and feel free from the world. I knew I wanted to film a lookbook there, and it was such a natural fit for Neiman Marcus Last Call & I to work together to showcase some of their incredible maxi dresses and talk about their plus offerings.

Classically California

From the time I was a child, I knew I belonged in California. Maybe it was the shows (Saved by The Bell, California Dreams) or the music (basically every 80’s song is about being a California Girl, isn’t it?! Thanks,…

Signature Swim

You guys, this swim combo gives me life. So much so that when my good friend Sarah saw me in it, she exclaimed (in a very good way) “OMG YOU LOOK LIKE MTV SPRING BREAK LIVE FROM MIAMI!!!” Aaannddd I…

The Beach Rocker

When I came across this plus size swimsuit, I felt my inner rock goddess scream with excitement. You guys know that I love all things leather and faux leather in as many ways as possible (and black is best). But to have a faux leather swimsuit?
Yes, ma’am!

Purple Reign

‘m obsessed with this galaxy print – this purple makes me feel like an absolute QUEEN. I’m loving the straps – it really takes it to a new level. I went down to Santa Monica Pier and rocked this swimsuit in the sand, and the compliments flew. I have a feeling I’m going to live in this swimsuit all summer long.

Sweet by the Sea

I’m so glad Swim Week is back! I’ve been sick for a few weeks now and it’s been killing me to be away from you guys and the blog, so it feels like the perfect way to come back and get back into the swing of things.
This is the first plus size swim week of the year (you can expect another one in about a month or so) and we’ve got a mix of two pieces and one pieces – so there are options for everyone.
