Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant | NYC Launch

Since day one, I’ve been a Christian Siriano fan. I knew he would do amazing things and design glamorous gowns. When I first heard he was collaborating exclusively with Lane Bryant, my heart kind of skipped a beat. High fashion was coming our way! With this limited edition collection, he has given us fall looks straight from the runway. And I was lucky enough to attend the launch party in New York City and snag an impromptu interview with the designer himself. Even though this was a whirlwind of a trip, I was really excited to be in the…

Anna Scholz | New York State of Mind Collection

If you’re an Anna Scholz fan, you know she’s all about her bold patterns and bright colors. That’s what I love most about her. She’s not afraid to dress the plus size woman in what is normally seen as taboo for our curves. Her latest capsule collection, New York State of Mind, is a perfect example of that. The collection launched yesterday and I am all about it. As you’ll see below, she used “The Big Apple” as the back drop for the photoshoot. What do you think? Are you a fan? You can find the latest Anna Scholz collection here.

Zelie For She ‘Dream and Destroy’ Collection

One of my faves, Zelie For She has collaborated with Dream & Destroy to create a brand new collection—Dream and Destroy. “With not many options in plus size fashion for street wear, I wanted to design a collection that isn’t just your basic graphics or sayings. I wanted to bring you a collection that has meaning and purpose behind it! I teamed up with Dream & Destroy (street wear for the conscious mind) and created one of a kind designs for Zelie for She,” said Elann Zelie. This collection is available in sizes Small-3X. I love that she’s offering these…

Spring Layering with Lightweight Jackets

When Reah Norman of StyledbyReah.com asked me to take part in the Bloomingdales Shop For Women Spring event, I jumped at the chance. She showcased seven spring trends and I was asked to help with one of my favorites—layering with lightweight jackets. We might be right smack in the middle of spring, but that doesn’t mean it’s been all sunny days and blooming flowers. No matter where you live, you know the weather has been super crazy with a mind of it’s own. It’s been an interesting task getting dressed every day not knowing how the day’s temps will treat…

15 Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Don’t panic guys! You still have time to buy the favorite mom in your life a gift for Mother’s Day. Although, we know that they should be honored every day. Excuse me while I try to win some bonus points with my mama (hi ma!). I put together a little Mother’s Day gift guide featuring 15 things I think would make great gifts (besides a spa day or vacation obviously). When you head out shopping, remember to always think of her first. What would fit her lifestyle, personality, needs, and style? Consider all of these things when buying her gift. And…

Festival Season Inspiration

Festival season is here guys! And it all starts here in Southern California with Coachella. I know that’s all you’ve been hearing about right? I’m not going to lie, I’ve only been to Coachella once. But, when I lived in Germany I made it to a few music festivals. So, what do you wear during festival season? Whatever you want of course! If it was me, I’d definitely get my boho on in the most comfortable way possible. But, that’s just me. If you’re not sure what to rock, I pulled some looks from some of my favorite retailers and posted them…

Marina Rinaldi Spring/Summer 2016 Preview

When it comes to plus size fashion, I think a lot of people tend to forget that luxury designers are part of the industry. A brand like Marina Rinaldi, which has been around since 1980, is designing sophisticated yet modern designs for the curvy woman. I was invited to a special spring/summer preview at their Beverly Hills boutique and I was in love with so many pieces. As you’ll see below, this italian brand is all about colors and prints for the upcoming seasons. My favorite part of the collection is the collaboration with Japanese Fashion Designer Tsumori Chisato. It’s…
