Summer dress throw down! Max vs. Cut out vs high low Oh My!

So there are some trends going on this summer which I've steered clear of, one of them being the "High Low" dress trend, mostly because this would mean revealing any upper leg which at this point I'm not prepared to do, however for those braver than I and those looking for fashion foward way to wear this seasons hottest new dresses I've scoured the net for advice, pics and some the cutest dresses from Evansusa.com. You can find each dress on their website from $34-40.




The Original Maxi

The original summer staple in a bold colorful print. Meant to be worn with beachy hair and bangles. We fell in love with Maxi dresses because they are so easy to wear, but solids can sometimes feel like too much or can fall flat, with bold prints and patterns in this seasons Maxi's you can go from shopping to strutting you stuff on the beach bar dance floor, just switch up the acessorie to go from day to night! Bangles only during the day to keep it simply and at night just add a simple gold necklace or hoops. You're set to party like a rockstar on vacay.
The "Pop Star"
This dress gives instant shape by creating the "V" in the bottom of the dress and giving coverage to the arms
without covering them up, the body hugging fit for this dress creates beautiful curves.
The Hi-Low
This is the much adored and equalled feared hi-lo maxi dress. This one hits just right above the knee
so it's perfect for leg flashing phobics like myself. The top is contructed with a great empire diadem waist.
The color blocking is a beautiful combination of blues thats' remiscent of the ocean.




The moral of the story is that no matter what trends are going on in the non-stop world of fashion, you have to do what makes you comfortable. If something just doesn't work for you and you're uncomfortable no matter how trendy it is, your unease will translate into your posture, you speech and your attitude. Remember the whole point of fashion is to make you feel beautiful, the perfect outfit can give you confidence, bring out the fierceness in you and make you feel like you can conquer the world. Just remember fashion is about how things make you feel and not about how someone says you should. 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…
