LINDEN:MADE IN LA
I am officially madly in love and completely obsessed with the LINDEN “Christie” Skirt in lemon. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way about a skirt but the fit the way the skirt flows and moves has me completely in love.
LINDEN is the California based line owned and designed entirely by independent designer Jennifer Lynn. The brand actually offers only straight sizes but Jennifer is no stranger to designing for curvier bodies. She’s previously designed plus size and the pieces LINDEN has to offer are designed and cut in such a way that fit and flatter any body type.
What I’m Wearing:
LINDEN Christie Skirt in Lemon, Size L
Kohl’s Bathing Suit Doubling as a Body Suit (Shrugs I’m from LA we wear bathing suits all year round)
Mossimo Faux Leather Jacket
BCBG Max Azria Sandals
Lipstick: Milani ‘Flamingo Rose’

FOR ANON: I’m still getting questions about the ASOS dress I wore in a previous post. I was asked if I would wear the dress to a club and how I would style it. Coincidentally I had just worn it out to Drai’s Nightclub in Hollywood for The Curvy Fashionista’s 4yr Blog Anniversary party. So to answer the question of how I would style it. Simple, with lots of gold and glitter.

Last Sunday I was invited to the Mayor’s LA Pride Garden Party, I freaked out mainly about what I was going to wear. I had never been to a garden party and in my mind, when you go to a garden party you’re supposed to look like Jackie Kennedy. I was starting to panic but luckily Kohl’s had just sent me a beautiful pair of summertime Simply Vera by Vera Wang wedges and a pair of over-sized toirtoise shell sunglasses. The wedges were perfect for a daytime look. The Simply Vera by Vera Wang line is classy and chic and fitting for a garden party at the Mayor’s Getty House.
Shoes: Simply Vera by Vera Wang Wedges
Sunglasses: Simply Vera by Vera Wang
Dress: Custom made to my measurements by Cassaundra’s Custom Boutique
The Mayor’s garden party was full of celebrities, artist and politicians all out in full force to support LA Pride. I think I lost my mind ( I played it cool though) when Molly Ringwald walked right by me. Jake Ryan was not with her in case you were wondering.
Lance Bass told me I had beautiful skin. I can die now! He was my childhood crush & fave N’sync member. I know… let’s not get into that right now.
Sharing laughs with super sweet & talented pop singer Dario Benitez.
I had an amazing time, made new friends, met one of my childhood celebrity crushes and collected compliments on my shoes. If that’s not the right way to kick off summer I don’t know what is.
