Bet you didn’t know that red is one of my favorite colors. Yup! Love it. I don’t know why I haven’t been wearing much of it lately, but that just might change. This is a color that works pretty much in any season. I’ve found a few things I wouldn’t mind rocking. Which one is your favorite?

As a plus size blogger, there are a many things I hear from readers. One of the things that irritates me the most is when I’m being told that I support obesity because I write about plus size fashion. Now, let’s get one thing straight, that is the most idiotic thing someone can say to me. I support dressing the body you have now…regardless of shape or size. No matter what you look like, you still need to wear clothes!
IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel has just released their pre-fall collection and it’s gorgeous! Inspired by exotic Indian design elements and sensuous ancient Greek draping, there are some great dresses I have my eye on. Modeled by my friend Denise Bidot, the “Voyage Exotique” collection hugs curves in all the right places.
It’s not every day that I immediately fall in love with a bra. In fact, most of the time, I don’t like them and that stinking underwire that always seems to poke me. And if it’s a sexy bra, most of the time it’s not comfortable or practical. Unless it’s this bra from Leading Lady.
If you’re a fan of plus size designer fashion, then you must know about Navabi. They’ve kind of been around the web recently. They created this awesome video which was taped during Berlin Fashion Week. It features the beautiful and confident Mariesther Venegas strutting her stuff around Berlin…in the buff!
Raise your hand if you’re a Lucky Brand fan! Me! Me! Back in my non-plus size days, I adored this retailer! Today, I can’t really wear it. Well…that is until NOW! As of today, ‘Ginger’, the company’s first venture into plus size denim will be available at major retailers nationwide!
Do you think you have all the beauty products you’ll need this summer? You do? Wrong! Come on ladies! There are a few things you’ll need for the rest of the summer. You’ll want to smell good first of all. Then you’ll need something to make those eyes stand out, but will actually stay on. And you’re going to need to keep those lips looking soft and hydrated. Yes you’re going to need all that! And thanks to L’Oreal Paris you just might be one of the lovely ladies to win these summer beauty essentials.
Last weekend I was sent to Las Vegas for a blog gig. We rented a Ford Mustang and made the 4 hour drive from Los Angeles. The car actually did pretty good on gas. I was really surprised! We hit a few 112 degree spots in the desert…thank God for air conditioning. Oh…btw…tall people will not like sitting in the back seat. Not very roomy.
Anyways…back to Las Vegas. Now normally, I love this city. I mean…what is there not to like? It’s the city of having fun…literally 24 hours a day fun. But, I will say I’m not a fan of LV during the summer. It’s too flippin’ hot! In case you were wondering, 80 degrees is my max temperature. It was anywhere from 103-108 that weekend. Ugh!
I love the “5 Question” feature on this blog. I think it’s a really great way to get to know someone a little better without dragging on a long interview. Today, I want to introduce you to an amazing model, Monique Robinson. I first met Monique at Full Figured Fashion Week 2011. She immediately stood out to me and rocked that finale runway show! I had to go over and introduce myself after. She is one of my favorite models and of course I love her name…duh! So, If you don’t know who she is…well get to know her, because I know you’ll be seeing a lot more of her!
