A Good Dress is Hard to Find

You know the saying…a good man is hard to find. Well, I’ve changed it around a bit. A good dress is hard to find.What do you have to do around here to find a dress that isn’t too short (butt hanging out) and too tight (my ribs are showing)? I will save all that for the bolder and more courageous curvy girls.I will stick to the classic, yet chic silhouettes with a fun print. Please for the love of fashion. Don’t be afraid of prints! I know I say that all the time, but it’s true.For me, these styles are so…

Why Size Discrimination?

I’m VERY irritated with this so-called fashion industry, fashion scene, or fashion whatever. As a designer, you have the right to create whatever you like, in any size, and for any person. There are no boundaries to what you design or envision to be fashion. You can be as brave and bold or as simple as you want. There is an infinite amount of freedom to express who you are in your designs.

DefShop is Hip Hop & Streetwear

You’re curvy, you adore Hip Hop, maybe you skate, and you love Streetwear fashion. I knew you were out there.After spending time in New York City, I can definitely appreciate all types of fashion. Especially style that comes from the streets. I am so jealous of those who can actually pull it off. And now that streetwear had definitely gone retro, I’m getting flash backs just writing this.I was checking out Def Shop, a Hip Hop and Streetwear online boutique from Europe, and I instantly fell for the retro inspired shoes. Especially, those nice sneakers, like the Nike’s. This is all…

Changing it Up!

Call it what you will…interchangeable, convertible, or infinity this style of dress has to be the best deal for your hard earned cash. One price with so many different options. I have been craving my own dress and can’t wait to buy one. You know I’ll get my money’s worth, because that’s what bargainistas do! I even found a blog, Rostitchery, that shows you how to create your own infinity dress. With so many options, what’s a curvy girl to do? Which designer does a girl choose?Do you own any of these dresses?Ashley Stewart 10-Way Dress $59.00Always For Me 6-Way Convertible…

My Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibit Visit

When I found out I was going to New York for Full Figured Fashion Week, I knew I had to head over to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’ve always been an admirer of Alexander McQueen, his vision, and talent. His death was a loss for the the fashion world. I loved his work, but didn’t know much about him personally. That’s why I made sure to attend the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit.As the line wrapped around the museum, I couldn’t help but wonder what the exhibit would be like. From the minute I walked in, I was in…

Seeing Red with Domino Dollhouse

I made my way over to Domino Dollhouse and was so inspired by their new Make Out Circus Collection! The pieces look so fun and I really love all the red! And I’m loving the models too (Go Tess!). Red always seems to be one of my favorite colors, regardless of the season. DD starts at size 14 and goes up.
