I may have mentioned this on my blog before, but spent a few years living in Germany. It was amazing. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved the fashion and shopping there. I envied the dark, chic, and polished style a lot of the women had over there. Carmakoma is the perfect example of the that. Just take a look for yourself. I was sent a sneak peek look into their Autumn/Winter 2013 Lookbook! Read more
Yesterday, I spent the entire afternoon in the scorching hot L.A. sun. I remember sitting there thinking how flipping hot it was. And how much I wished I was wearing a cool dress. Yup, summer is in full swing and all I want to do is wear summer dresses. Well…10 dresses to be exact. Read more
There’s that moment, when you put on an article of clothing and it just feels like it was made for you. It’s one of those “perfect fit” experiences. What’s even better is when you don’t think it will look good on you, then when you’re wearing it all of that just goes away. Sonsi, your “go to” online plus size fashion shop, sent me a few items from their (awesome) City Chic boutique and it was all I needed to make my weekend. Read more
When it comes to style on a budget, no one knows better than Shauna of the blog Penny Chic! This chick is so amazingly sweet! A few months ago, she sent me two dresses from her Little Black Dress Collection. It’s a collaboration between Shauna and Walmart that offer women of all sizes five basic LBD’s. Here I am wearing “The Skater” at the FFFWeek Indie Designer Showcase.
It seems like the photos from my NYC visit will never stop. I apparently took over 900 photos while I was there! That’s a lot to share with you. So, as long as I have them, I’ll share them here. A few of those photos are from the Evans Fall/Winter Preview. I was lucky enough to get an invite and check out what’s to come from the UK retailer! Read more

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to write about how much I really love Just My Size undergarments. Yes, we’re going to talk bras, panties, and how amazingly comfy they are. Would you expect anything less from me? You know I’m all about being comfortable! Read more
Here’s another one of my favorite designers from the Full Figured Fashion Week Indie Designers Showcase—Nakimuli! I’m happy to report that this collection was exciting and daring too! Some of my favorite pieces were the swimsuits, but there were a few separates I wouldn’t mind owning as well. Once again a designer, Tennille McMillan, is having fun with curvy fashion! Read more
This is a compensated post in collaboration with Starbucks. All opinions and thoughts in this post are honest and mine.
Summer is officially here! I seriously can’t believe how fast time has flown by. You know how time flies when you’re having fun. And I have been having a lot of that lately. That’s what fashion is all about right? Having fun? OK…if it’s not fun, then you’re probably not doing it right. Read more
I imagine the designer of Rue 114, Serwah Asante, to be this really cool, vibrant, and carefree woman. I’ve never met her, but I just get that vibe when I look at her collection. Even her motto is awesome—”Great style should be available in all sizes because fabulous, fierce, kick-ass women come in all sizes!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Read more
Happy Weekend loves! I’m trying get out of this NYC apartment for a night with a friend, but before I do I wanted to share this post with you. Yes, I’m still here in the Big Apple and loving it. Maybe it’s all the fabulousness and events. Like the other day, I was invited to the Torrid Fall Fashion Preview along with a group of bloggers. Read more
Here you go ladies! Part 2 of the Lane Bryant Blogger Conference I was invited to while here at Full Figured Fashion Week. The second half of this day was all about the upcoming fall trends and some much needed conversation. I know that’s something I really appreciate. We all know in the end, they’re running a business, but Read more
