70s Vibes

I am thrilled that 70s-inspired fashion is back because these trends are right up my alley. This here is a low-budget look, and I am less than pleased with some of the pieces here, mostly because of the fit. Junior plus size clothing is so unpredictable. I’ve ordered from these retailers before, but I suppose they…

Hipster Nights

Spring is almost here! And, this dress is totally awesome for transitional weather, like we’re experiencing here in STL, because it can be layered. I added a jacket, fedora and a stole for warmth and style and a little 70s flair. Gawd, I love transitional weather – it just marries all the best of fashion. I…

The Magic of Thinking Big

Plus size women should have access to fabulous garments just like straight size women. We know this, yet brands are still not delivering what we need. However, back in August 2014, when a well-known blogger spoke out against size discrimination, Target listened – eventually launching AVA & VIV. This new line is the first exclusively plus size…

Wanna Cookie?

This is a Cookie inspired look. So, you know it’s all about the furs and animal print. Cookie is totally my spirit-animal: Fierce, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes. She is so strong and vulnerable at the same time. I LOVE.   I got this sexy and sleek dress via Gwynnie Bee – and, I…

New Subbie at Gwynnie Bee

A black and white color palette is both trendy and classic. It was also all over the runways at NYFW 2k15. So, when I saw this Taylor Geometric Shift Dress in ivory and black on Gwynnie Bee, I had to put it in my closet! I signed up to receive two items per month, and I think that’ll satisfy…

Shoe Haul feat Lane Bryant

Having a size 12 foot, I am limited in where I can find cute and comfortable shoes. I usually have to opt for Nordstrom, Torrid, Sole Society or PayLess. However, I recently tried some shoes from Lane Bryant, and I am so glad that I did. I made my first purchase back in December for…

Mood

  Sometimes, the only way for me to make sense out of my crazy life is to just go with it. I just plunge right in, move with it and join the dance. I cannot argue with what is meant to be… Another thing that helps me to clear my mind is to clean or work…

Put Your Name On It

My ex and I had a very mature, conscious uncoupling. We kept in touch for years after we broke up, until he moved out of the country last week. Before his departure, though, he told me to expect something for Valentines day in the mail – romantic, right? I went about my business as usual, and…

Wet Seal Goes Out of Business

Another One Bites The Dust: I was too mad when I found out that Wet Seal is going out of business. So, when I heard the news, I headed to the mall to hopefully catch a sale. Plus, there was this kimono that I saw online and was just dying to have… even though I am on…
