Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When  it comes to prints, stripes, polka dots, and leopard, are my personal staples. They are classic prints that are always in style. However, for me, stripes are my absolute favorite thing to wear. I think one of the main reasons is that so many people believe that plus size women shouldn't be caught dead in horizontal stripes. Obviously, I beg to differ. In my opinion, plus size women can wear stripes. We can wear pretty much anything any non plus size woman can. 

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Some of the biggest celebrities in the world have made Tadashi Shoji, the king of draping and ruching they're go to designer when it comes to red carpet events. No matter their size, plus and straight size women all flock to the designer when they want a sexy, sophisticated, flattering look. I've written about Tadashi Shoji designs numerous times and one thing that always sticks out to me with his designs is that he never ever sacrifices style just to make something look flattering and just about everything he makes in straight sizes also comes in plus.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
We have received a couple of Stylish Curves of the day submissions and today we are checking out Vanessa from San Francisco.

When it comes to embracing her curves, here's what Vanessa had to say:

"My name is Vanessa Chan, from San Francisco and here's where I write about emerging places, people and trends, including plus fashion!

"I embrace my curves by wearing lots of color, by emphasizing my best assets, and frankly by being unafraid."

"Being a plus-sized Asian woman has never been easy, but life's too short to be inhibited!"

Thanks Vanessa for your submission and yes represent for the plus size Asian girls. 

What do you guys think of Vanessa's style?

If you would like to be features as Stylish Curves of the day please submit 3-6 photos of your best looks to with a blurb abut how you embrace your curves and where you're from.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend so far. I know I am. This is just one of the summer dresses that I found during Macy's mega sale last weekend. I'm not a big fan of American Rag but I have been digging their flirty dresses lately. I keep saying that I am not a floral print kind of girl but I keep buying floral print pieces.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
It's memorial day weekend and we got the scoop on what's going on in the fashion industry and with some of your fave celebrities.

Let's Go!

XO Jane and Gabi Fresh create a Fatkini lookbook
I love when plus size women can get together and show the world that we are proud of our bodies. Plus size blogger and former MTV Twitter Jockey Gabi Fresh teamed up with XO Jane to release a mini look book of plus size women rocking their bikini's. The majority of society would not approve and would have us to be ashamed of our bodies but this look book is so empowering beyond words.
Check it out at XOJane

News just broke that super blogger Bryan Boy has inked a major deal with ANTM. Not sure what his role will be but, I'm quite sure he's probably going to be a judge. Can't wait to see how that partnership turns out.

So it looks like plus size models are heating up magazine spreads across the country. Most recently curvy model Candace Huffine was shot by Damon Baker for a sexy spread in Spanish magazine S Moda. Of course most of the shots were baring lots of skin. I personally would love to see a real spread with plus size models in clothes made for us. Don't you?

Everyone's fat girl hero Beth Ditto chatted it up with Virtue and dished about her feelings on Karl Lagerfeld's negative comments about Adele, if she had the time she would do a line of clothes for plus size men and women that would be affordable, have classic pieces as well edgy styles.   She also mentioned that one of her fave stores was ReDress (now closed) in Brooklyn.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
 I totally forgot about this dress I wore on Saturday. It's the cutest little white dress. It has a mesh neckline and little sailboats on it. Saturday's for me is all about easy breezy clothing. When the weather heats up I just like to throw on a dress and keep it moving. This is one of those dresses that looks equally as good with flats as it does heels. But I'm a heels kind of girl. Right now I'm obsessed with my pink shades and have been wearing them with everything that has a splash of pink in it. Currently, I'm just having fun with my wardrobe and I tell you the freedom I feel when I just throw something on and not have to put too much thought into it, is great.

Hope you guys are enjoying this rainy day.

What I'm Wearing
Dress: F21, Shoes: BCBG, Bracelet: Loft

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
There's no secret that I love pink and any variation of it. To me, the color represents all things feminine and girlie. I remember going through a phase where everything I owned had to pink. When I got my first apartment I wanted to paint the entire place pink. I wanted a pink comforter, pink sheets, all pink everything. After awhile, I realized I had to approach pink in an adult way. Which meant incorporating hints of it in my daily life. This spring/summer season, I've relapsed. I've been going pink crazy, as you've seen here in some of my outfit posts. Remember my pink suit?

It's to the point now that whatever I see in the color pink I have to have it. Last month, I fed my pink habit my purchasing this pink and purple floral body con skirt. The print was so strong and bold that I couldn't put it down. There were a number of ways that I could have worn this skirt but I like for certain prints to shine on their own. I teamed the skirt up with a basic crew neck tee and a pair of BCBG patent peeptoe pumps.

I went in overload mode by adding on one of my favorite pairs of shades from Kensie and a pink and purple jeweled plated necklace. To me, fashion is supposed to be fun and it's okay to pile it on every now again. This is a look I had fun wearing and although it's simple it keeps me grounded and lets me know not to take fashion so seriously. 

What I'm Wearing
T-shirt: Old Navy
Skirt: Forever21
Shoes: BCBG
Watch: Michael Kors
Cuff: H&M
Hoops: H&M
Necklace: Peppermint Chic

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful day. I'm so excited to say that its Stylish Curves 3 year anniversary. Yes! Can you believe it?! I've been blogging for 3 whole years. Cue Raphael Sadiqq's "It's our anniversary."

To show my gratitude and thanks to my beloved readers, I have lined up a few giveaways, all starting next week Monday.
As always, I like to keep it real with you. This year has been quite a challenging year for me as a blogger. I've had some Hi's and I've had some lows. There was a point where I wanted to stop blogging altogether but every time I tried to give it up, something kept pulling me back in. I enjoy coming up with creative posts to help make shopping for your plus size body a little easier. I enjoy being able to share with you what's going on in the fashion industry.

At some point this year I lost my way and didn't like the blogger I was becoming. I even at one point lost my love for blogging. As I am working on getting back to the reason I started blogging in the first place I am truly happy that I stayed in the game another round.

This year I hope and plan to take this blog to the next level. When it comes to blogging, my priority is what you the reader wants, so feel free to drop me an email or comment in the posts on what you would like to see more of.

Thank you so much for sticking with me and shouting me out when you see me in the streets. I am truly grateful for all of Stylish Curves readers. Thank you for sticking  with us these past  3 years.

Now, on to what I'm rocking. As seen in my haul video I am rocking the zebra print pants from Kmarts LYS collection. They're so comfy and  nice change from skinny jeans, although I still want a pair of printed skinnies. I was going to wear a black top or blazer with them but decided to amp things up with a red blazer and white v-neck t-shirt. This was a relaxed and casual outfit and I will be wearing these pants to death for the summer. I am already building up my tank collection to rock them with.

What I'm Wearing
Blazer: Forever21
Printed Pants: Kmart LYS
T-shirt: Old Navy
Shoes:Vince Camuto
Bag: Loft
Necklace: Forever21
Sunnies: (gifted)
