Hey curvy girls all over the world,
 A few weeks ago I was introduced to a new online shopping site called Gwynnie Bee. It's already being dubbed the Netflix of plus size shopping. Gwynnie Bee allows you to shop and wear the latest styles from top plus size brands through their site with no commitment  It's sort of like Rent The Runway for plus size fashion but the BIG difference is there is no time limit or fees on how long you keep an item. It really is like Netflix for plus sizes.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
A few weeks ago, Total Beauty.com released their best of 2012 awards. They tried and tested some of the best beauty products on the market. The team over at Total Beauty was nice enough to send me a few of those products for me to try.



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and safe Merry Christmas. I hope that you all receive everything you wanted.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
For the past month or so I have been on a sweater dress hunt. I wanted one that would hug my body without feeling clingy. I also wanted a style that wasn't bland simple. I wanted one that was going to be interesting, cool, and sexy.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Sometimes I wake up in the morning feeling like I have the, "I don't have anything to wear." syndrome. Meanwhile, I am looking at an over stuffed closet with clothes literally knocking me in my head because the closet is so jam packed. How is it that as women we all seem to have this problem? Also, why does that problem seem to arise when you wake up late and have about 20 minutes to get dressed just to make it to work on time? 



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Although, I am not a long dress kind of person, I had to do a double take at this sexy double split plus size dress I spotted at Chic and Curvy Boutique. There is something about a high split that makes a long dress look sexy and not dowdy.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Since cutting my hair short back in 2010, I have been experimenting with different hairstyles while my natural hair grows back to the back grazing length it once was. One of the hairstyles I like to wear most involves hair extensions aka weaves. I remember when I got my first weave, it was my senior year in college back in 2003.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
I hope everyone got their weekend off to a great start. My week was jammed pack with meetings and preparing to end 2012 off with a bang. I hardly had anytime to do anything. I didn't even have time to do proper posts for you guys. Luckily, my nephew has visited this weekend and is helping me out.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Not only have I been slacking on keeping you up to date with the latest styles for plus size women in retail stores, I've been slacking on keeping you abreast of plus size designers. Some of you may have seen Cult of California in the November issue of Plus Model Mag but for those of you who haven't I wanted to share with you. Last summer I met founder of Cult of California, Jen Wilder at FFFWeek blogging 101 seminar. Jen has been in the fashion industry for 10 years designing for the likes of BCBG, Laundry by Shelli Segel, and Forever21 just to name a few.

Hey there beautiful curvy ladies,
The holiday season is officially here. It's time to start deciding what you are going to wear to the office party, your friend's holiday party and everything else in between. I'm here to make your job a little easier. This week is all about accessories.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Being the shopaholic that I am, I wanted to share with you some of my tips when it comes to plus size shopping. This is actually a re-post from an article I wrote for The Budget Fashionista. I figured I would re-post it since we are going into a new year in just a couple of weeks. 

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
While I am not a leggings kind of person, lately I've been digging some of the printed styles in plus sizes. Last week, while scrolling through my instagram, I spotted a photo of Skorch EIC Jessica Kane rocking a pair of super sexy side paneled printed leggings. What drew me to them was how thick and high quality they looked. Most leggings for plus size women are super sheer, lightweight, and plain old cheap looking. Not these! 

These looked more like stretch pants and when I saw how Jessica rocked them, I was like, yes, hunty. Werk! I clicked on  the link to the leggings and saw they were created by a gentlemen who goes by the name of Freddie B. He designs functional pieces for plus size women. Currently he has a patent pending on something called "Armettes", which is a way to add sleeves to any outfit.

Currently, I'm really digging the leggings and have to snatch me up a pair. They go up to a size $28 and retail for $34.99
You can find them by going to Freddi B.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
From Kelly on the office to a hit show on FOX with her name sake (The Mindy Project), Mindy Kaling is making big moves as a woman on television and on the red carpet. One of the things I adore most about Mindy is her down to earth attitude. She is not afraid to be herself which is refreshing.


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Today we are crushing on this polka dot skater dress from ASOS Curve. This cute little retro number is just one of those dresses you can throw on and look great in without any bells or whistles. I actually have it and the fit is true to size. The best part is that its a steal at $38


It comes in teal and ocblood

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
After selling out of the LBD from Vivere, Madison Plus is back with another exclusive plus size designer piece. This time, they are selling a piece from Stefanie Bezaire.

Whether it’s a holiday party, big date, or a high school reunion, every woman has those evenings where she pulls out all the stops. Here are my 5 best tips for looking red carpet ready.



Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The plus size fashion industry has come a long way. We’ve gone from having limited options with just a handful of retail stores to now having a bevy of plus size designers at our fingertips. Here at SC we always try our best to support independent designers. We know how hard it is for designers to get their names and collections on the map so whenever we can lend our voice we do.
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
There is a new plus size designer on the scene and her name is Christine Kardashian. No, don't get her confused with being part of  the media obsessed Kardashian Klan, this Australian based designer is out to make a name for herself that doesn't involve being a reality tv star.

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When I was on Good Morning America, no one could have prepared me for the random haters that would come my way. I just can't understand why the world has such a problem with a plus size woman being okay with her body.

Saturday, December 1, 2012


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
As plus size women we are often hard on ourselves when it comes to finding flattering clothes for our bodies. While wrap dresses, pencil skirts, and empire waists are proven styles that flatter a plus size body; that doesn't mean that we should limit ourselves to just those styles.
