Street Chic-Real fashionistas we caught being fabulous and summer trends right off the racks

Today I set out to get some hot summer looks in stores now that would work for a full figured fashionista and weren't sky high in price, when I stopped in to browse the clearance rack at Torrid in Modesto, CA I got a lovely surprise with Stacey one of the very friendly and beautiful ladies behind the counter she was kind enough to let us use her pic in our first ever Street Chic- where we find real ladies and bring you the style straight from the street.

Do you know a super chic full figured lady in your life? Nominate he by sending your pics to chubbygirlintheworld@gmail.com  to be our Street Chic lady of the week and you will both win beauty and make up products if we pick her that week!
Stacey looking picture perfect with retro glam hair and cat eye liner. Stacey we salute your fabulousness!
We caught Stephanie in the food court looking summer pretty in shorts and a floral top, this is how you do it!


Here are som looks hot off the racks that won't break your bank:
Color block top from JC Penney $20









Bright pink pants $22 JC Penneys

Must have from Torrid, white blazer







I was so excited to see that so many people were eager to help with and be a part of Chubby Girl In the World, it's been my baby for a long time and though I had to be away for a while, it has never stopped being my passion. I truly believe that when you look good, you feel good and will do things you normally might be too shy or timid to try, the right blazer, or pants or accessory can put the biggest smile on your face and sometimes that is what make all the difference.
Until next time 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…
