    Hacks for buying plus size clothing online

    Shopping online is daunting for most of us, but I think more so when you’re plus size because fit is always a worry. It’s not only about whether or not the item is going to fit but HOW it is going to fit. And speaking from personal experience my regular size isn’t always my size because of how I prefer different items to fit. So combine our anxiety over fits and the price we pay for our clothes and we naturally prefer to shop in store BUT online is the way of the future and many of the best shops are online only such as Superbalist which is a great…

    Simple and Free Ways to Change up your Style

    I know that if I were a millionaire a large portion of that money would go on clothing. I just love everything about new clothes, the shopping experience, the deciding how to wear something new with stuff you already own, then wearing it for the first time.

    As plus size women, we have an unspoken fashion bond, when finding something that fits like a glove we want to tell each other or when we spot a store stocking some cute items we feel like we want to spread the word because that’s hard to come by sometimes.

    Some Realities of working in fashion

    I always wanted a career in fashion and honestly, I thought it would be all Chanel and roses and it is, sometimes, because it is what I love. But it is also so much more than pretty clothes and glamour. A lot of my readers have shown interest in my career so I want to share a bit more of it with you because it is an industry that keeps you on your toes and sometimes does steal your smile but it is also a rewarding industry. Nothing beats seeing something that you had a hand in on a mannequin, or better yet, on someone. And I know I am…
