Because She Loves Curves And Fashion
Real women. Real clothes. Real sexy. The new Sofia Vergara collection offered exclusively at K Mart, appropriately named Sofia by Sofia Vergara is designed for women with curves. I love her slogans; “You Are A Woman, So Dress Like A Woman” and “Work With What You Got”. Isn’t that we are all trying to do, work with what we got? Well now her collection makes it that much easier. I was skeptical at first when I saw the very catchy and clever TV ad showing Sofia take off a garment only to morph into another woman, then ultimately back to Sofia. The ad depicted different women, different heights, and different sizes. And the clothes looked great on all of them. ButI was still skeptical. Since her collection is newer, I’ve been waiting for the reviews to come out. And boy, have they.
She offers a collection that includes tops, blouses, cardigans, jackets, leggings, jeggings, skirts, dresses, handbags, shoes, and jewelry. Everything is so reasonably priced and can easily mix and match to create hundreds of looks with only a few pieces. I reviewed all of the customer comments for each of the pieces. What women had to say were encouraging and make me want to buy every item.
She offers 14 skirts and dresses that range from approximately $23 to $34. Women said the dresses they bought “made them look thinner” and had “forgiving, flattering fabric”. Only one said the dress she bought was sized too small but she still loved the dress.
The 18 tops offered range from $13 to $28. They vary from dressy t shirts and form fitting tops to flowy and feminine blouses. Women who reviewed some of the tops said they were “amazing, affordable, and versatile”. Another gave props to the super neat and professional packaging while one woman couldn’t get enough of the “super flattering ruching”.
Of the three jackets she created in the $38 to $45 price range, women’s comments included, “good”, “true to size, warm”, however, one woman was disappointed with the faux fur vest because it did not have fur in the back (which was not shown on the model).
She also offers three sweaters ranging from $23 to $28. Even though no reviews were given yet, I could see by the pictures, she paid attention to every detail. They have the same flattering shape, the shawl collar wrap is beautiful, and the ruching flatters every woman.
Her accessories are designed to accent and compliment every article of clothing. The handbags are reasonably priced under $30 and are in browns, blacks and grays, and animal prints. The jewelry ranging from $10 to $20 is in gorgeous gold and silver tones with pops of black in some pieces. Her shoes are equally well designed to compliment every outfit and cost no more than $50 for a pair of boots.
Overall, I am very impressed with her collection. The reviews are starting to come in and are very positive. Of the 43 items she offers at K Mart, 15 articles of clothing were reviewed and generally ranked a 5/5, no less than 3/5, and only one received a 1/5 because the woman stated she thought it was something different.
I think the beautiful Sofia Vergara got it right with her new collection: we are women with curves who want to flaunt our assets in sexy affordable, forgiving, and flattering clothes. Let her clothes hug your curves today!.
Ali Leaves Kasey’s Tattooed Soul Tattered
Ali and the bachelors were in Iceland. She chose Justin and arch nemesis Kasey to go on a special helicopter ride over volcanoes and glaciers in Iceland. Awkward doesn’t begin to describe the date start to finish.
The scenery of untouched glacier peaks couldn’t cut the tension at points. Just last week, our bachelorette told Kasey to ratchet down. He was overbearing, she had told him, which falls squarely into the “Do you think?”
So, how did Kasey take the news? The advertising account exec went out the next day and got a tattoo to show Ali again how his intent is to protect her heart. He didn’t get to show her the tattoo or make his profession yet again last episode, so he thought it was Karma that he’d get to show her on this sort of individual date.
On Ali’s other side in the helicopter was Justin. He showed up to the date without crutches so he was able to give Ali a decent hug. He wanted the rose from the date, but the question is why? He seemed misunderstood early on and picked on by the other bachelors. As time has gone on, however, the Rated R personality and the cockiness that goes with it, seems to surface more often. More than he wanted to receive a rose on the date, he wanted Kasey to NOT receive a rose.
Both had alone time. Kasey’s time was the train wreck you would have expected given that he doesn’t seem to be a good listener.
Ali launched into a bit of a speech about how she wanted him to be himself, and she hadn’t talked to him last week in an effort to change the way he behaves. She always stopped short of saying that he had been creeping her out, so she appreciated that he appeared to heed her words.
Then Kasey started speaking and any remorse Ali had thinking she may have been hard on him last week was shot fast and hard. Kasey unveiled the tattoo, explaining the significance of each part of the graphic. Ali had all she could to cover up the deer in the headlights look on her face. And I’m being polite because that isn’t the exact look she had.
They hugged, and then she had to meet with Justin and Kasey together to present a rose. It went to Justin. Surprise. Ali asked Justin to wait in the helicopter so she could speak to Kasey.
They hugged, and she told him not to change and that he was ready to meet that special girl. It just wasn’t her. Then she said she didn’t want to hold him back by keeping him there. It’s a line that ranks right up there with “I think of you as a friend.” And this was delivered on national TV after he had explained his tattoo. The whole scene ranks right up there with Shooter’s speech about having a premature episode in college.
Justin and Ali took off in the helicopter. Kasey stood alone on the top of the glacier and watched them leave. Tell me they have someone picking that guy up. He was a bit much, but he doesn’t deserve being left out in the snow.
Ali had a group horse riding date with the rest of the bachelors. They looked regal atop their steeds. All except poor Craig who got stuck with what resembled a Shetland pony. He took it in stride saying It’s not the size of the horse, but what you do with it.
That good natured behavior, along with his very uplifting alone time with Ali that night may have saved him from elimination.
During their alone time, Craig rolled up his sleeve to show Ali his mock tattoo, and proceeded to explain the significance of each part of the design. It was just what Ali needed to lighten her mood as she still felt bad breaking Kasey’s heart.
Her alone time with Chris was just sad. She asked if there were anything about him that she didn’t know that might surprise her. He started telling her that he’d been told that he’s really funny.
And that was the end of his story.
Ali tried to draw him out but to no avail. You could all but see the imaginary rose withering right in the airspace between them.
The deed was done officially by the end of the night when Chris went home without a rose.
Next week, Ali is taking the bachelors to Istanbul. Stay tuned for more drama in the love department.
