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!

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…

Becoming a Fashion Grown up-Chubby Girl In the World Style

Ok, I'll admit it I'm getting old, on Dec. 7th of this year I will be 29! (Silent freak out). What's worse is I'm now a grown up with an early not mid-twenties closet. I feel like I've outgrown the major retailers and need to move on, I'm ready for a more mature fashion relationship but I have fashion issues.
 My key fashion issues:

Short leg, longer torsoBottom heavy in all the wrong placeswhat I call "marshmallow syndrome"- If clothes are too tight, it looks like I'm a sausage, if too loose they not shape at all. So does any of this sound familiar? Here's the advice that has actually worked for me over the years and if I had unlimited funds this is the wardrobe I would create, I' a size 28 which is considered "super sized" so for the sake of argument I'll include designers that stop at size 26 but note them with an asterisk*. Nothing is worse than reading a that one page of Marie Claire dedicated to Plus fashion and realizin…
