Style Trend / Marsala Plus Size Picks

Marsala may be Pantone’s color of the year for 2015, but it’s always been one of my favorite colors. Personally, I call it burgundy or wine.

Are We Ready for Change in the Plus Size Fashion Industry?


If there’s one thing that bugs me the most about the plus size fashion industry, it’s the lack of true representation when it comes to body shape and size diversity. Not every plus size woman has a flat stomach, is hour glass shaped, or is 5’9 or taller. I’m 5’6, a size 16/18, and I carry most of my weight in my stomach. I’ve discussed this before on this blog or probably ranted about it on Twitter. It’s annoying and frustrating to say the least. And I’m not the only one who feels this way. Read more

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 Halloween costumes that won’t leave you feeling exposed.
