Whenever October rolls around, I’m always curious to see what plus size Halloween costumes will be popular. It’s usually “Sexy Police Officer” or “Sexy Nurse” that seems to get the most attention. I even saw a “Sexy Raccoon” costume today. I wish I was joking. Anyways, I’m not afraid to admit that I’m sooooo over sexy costumes that leave me freezing on Halloween night. So, I kind of went on a little hunt and found 20 plus size…
Are you craving fall inspiration like I am? I live in Los Angeles where fall seems to be nonexistent. So, I have to be inspired some way or another.

Follow Curves and Chaos™’s board Craving FALL on Pinterest.
If there is anything you should know about me, it has to be my support and advocacy for the fight against breast cancer. And as we all know, October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This Sunday, October 4, 2015, I am honored to co-host an event with Lane Bryant and the American Cancer Society at their Culver City, CA location—and you’re invited!
This is basically my “wishful thinking” fashion post. Meaning…I wish it was cold enough here in L.A. to wear any one of these plus size cardigans right now. Guys, it’s still hot here and it doesn’t look like the cooler fall temperatures will be here any time soon. So, I sit here dreaming of sweater weather. And like I always do, I found a few favorites that I wanted to share with you.
That moment you’re on a roller coaster and you’re about to hit a frightening loop. That ache in the pit of your stomach is back – but this time it rushes up through your heart. It feels like it grasps at your throat. Causing you to cry out in pain with a voice you’ve never heard before. Tears explode through you. You hyperventilate. And in that moment…you just feel helpless.
True story…I’ve been taking selfies before selfies were “a thing.” If you left your camera laying around, more than likely you found selfies of me making insane faces. Today, selfies are totally normal. So much in fact, that my good friend and makeup artist extraordinaire Luis published #beautiful by Luis Casco—50 Easy-to-create selfie-ready beauty looks. And I’m going to give you a chance to win your very own autographed copy!
Calling all of my Sophie Theallet fans. The lingerie designer has teamed up againwith Lane Bryant for a 5th time! She’s bringing her designs to the fall and holiday Cacique Lingerie and Sleepwear collections. It will hit Lane Bryant stores later this month and the beginning of November.

Oh fall…I can’t believe you’re finally here. Even though it doesn’t feel like it because L.A. is in the middle of a heatwave. But, that’s OK. Because, I am in a fall kind of mood when it comes to my shopping! And I have a few things brewing in that department. 10 favorites as a matter of fact.
Sponsored by Kmart. There I was in the store’s toy section. Walking through each aisle commenting how we never had cool toys like this when I was a kid. No, seriously…we didn’t! I had my two-year-old nephew with me as he jumped from toy to toy—wanting everything in sight. We’ve all been there right? Toys hold a power in kids unlike anything else. They have the ability to empower, educate, and inspire their young minds.
New York City’s Times Square has never seen anything like Lane Bryant’s #PlusIsEqual Times Square takeover! Women of all sizes made their way into one of the busiest places on this planet to make their presence known. And I am so amazingly proud to have been invited out by Lane Bryant to not only experience it, but to let my voice be heard! Of course, I couldn’t leave you guys hanging. I made sure to…
Have you ever had one of those moments when you just saw something online and just had to have it? And then all of the stars align when you see that it’s not outrageously over-priced and it’s available in your size. Yes, that’s exactly what happened to me the moment I saw this bohemian-inspired paisley print dress. It was like we were meant to be together.
#PlusIsEqual is Lane Bryant’s latest campaign with a powerful message! Plus size woman want to be seen and represented in the fashion industry, the media, and in the world. They started by strategically placing a mysterious ad right smack in the middle of Vogue’s huge September issue. Then came the billboards around Manhattan and “the commercial.” And now, they are set to take over Times Square on Monday, September, 14, 2015 at 12 p.m.
We live in a world where fashion trends rule. I on the other hand, live in a world where I wear whatever I like and what I want. And for me, it’s all about comfort. You guys should already know that about me. I swear, on this recent trip to NYC, I was all about my relaxed boho look. You couldn’t put me in something restricting if you tried.
