My new girl crush is on Domino Dollhouse and Skorch magazine!

My new obsessionions Skorch Magazine and Domino Dollhouse!
So a google search for "plus size magazine" turned up these two gems! Skorch magazine is run by the beautiful and talented Jessica Kane who also writes her own fashion blog the lifeandstyleofjessica, which is awesome as well. While browsing through the Skorch website, I found tons of style tips, awesome videos and all kinds of unimaginable good links to get clothes in my size! I've never heard of most of those retailers but I am so glad I did, it was like a Pandora of plus size stores, some how they knew exactly what I wanted! Then I found the Pièce de résistance Domino Dollhouse
You Can't imagine how thrilled I was when I saw first the absolute fantastic construction and cut of these pieces, they are not just enlarged from "straight size" fit models, but actually are cut to fit curvier figures. Skorch not only has an amazing website, but their actualy digital publication is beautifully crafted and they use a service called issuu to distribute, you can view it from a link on skorchmag.com, the celebrity editor at large is Rosie Mercado, beautiful cover girl of Full Figured Fashion week and absolutely fabulous human being and make up artist, she does all her own! You must check it out. I love Vogue, Cosomo and Elle as much as the next girl, but I'm always wondering in those mags, how do I make that work for me? Where the heck will I find it and how the heck am I gonna get it without spending my entire paycheck? Skorch answers most of those questions, and Jessica Kane started as a Torrid shop girl, I say hats off to Jessica and the Skorch crew for giving girls who aren't Prada sized a beautiful work of art, showcasing that beauty and style come in ever size.
Until later my lovelies!

Winter is coming...

So my fiance and I are obsessed with Game of Thrones. We love Danny, hate Jofferey and yes I read the f@uking books! So winter is here, I've been snowed in for three days here in Wilsonville,OR with one of the largest snow storms to hit the area since 1996. So in order to keep from getting cabin fever I've decided to share with you lovlies the pieces which I'm currently coveting from Igigi and a new source I found called Navbi (much more expensive, think Nordstroms for plus sizes).  I also wanted to make you aware (as if you didn't know) how awesome some modcloth stuff is. I just purchased the travel day skirt on sale for 14.99, we do love a bargain.

Things drool worthy from Igigi:


Zola Dress $118 I imagine mysels as Reese witherspoon in this dress, cute, quirky and loveable.
garnet dress in black, perfect for office or cocktails. I imagine the model as a Bond girl, with a thigh holster and .22 tucked inside her dress.
Cadence Dress $118.
I think I could take over the wor…

Shout out to local businesses!- Please support local and homegrown plus size friendly business in your area! This is the Portland edition

If you're in Portland Metro area do not miss out on going to two shops one in Northwest called Fat Fancy which has killer vintage and new styles for the plus size retro princesses out there and in the Southeast there is Savvy Plus run by the beautiful and awesome Gaya (I'm not sure if I spelled that right! Someone please correct me if I'm wrong).

Fat Fancy- great for both men and women and the funky little shop is right in the heart of downtown Portland so it's a great destination if you're on the Northwest side of town and wanna do some shopping. My favorite piece I got there is the amazing graphic crop top I use over camis. The girls who work here are amazing at making you feel comfortable and helping you find exactly what you're looking for.

Savvy-Plus has been and will continue to be my first destination when shopping for casual and career wear. I went in yesterday and was so excited about all the new things, the inventory is constantly changing so go in at…

Overcoming the "I'm too fat for this."

I have not been posting lately due to many reasons, I'm back in school, I'm working full time again and I've been stuck in a depressive cycle in which I overeat, condemn myself for being a glutton tell myself I'll never amount to anything and then overeat again to make myself feel better. Wow, that sound really crazy when I say it like that. But so many women I know have told me the go through exactly the same thing. We lie awake at night thinking about all the terrible things we did to our bodies that day. I had McDonalds and Taco Bell all in the same day; word to the wise don't do this.

Tomorrow I have to go out networking, normally this is a chance for me to increase our connections or strengthen ones we already have and hopefully broker us more deals in the process but really it's about relationship building and frankly I've been pretty terrible at it lately. Why has my performance decreased so drastically? Because I don't think I deserve to be ther…
