Black Friday Worth it or Waste of time?

So this will be one of the first years in a loong time that I do not have to work  on Black Friday but I the person who adores a bargain and loves fashion will not be with the Walking Dead like zombie crowd at 4am banging on the Macy's door and here is why:

Today my room mate and I were at the outlets next to apartment and I walked into the LB outlet everything was 50% off and the clearance  was another 60% off I couldn't let updating my wardrobe go until the next weekend and who wants to deal with the herds of people? I've usually been forced through the drudgery of working on that day because of retail jobs but this holiday season I'm very excited to not be out and about. When I checked out at the register one of the clerks told me that I was getting a better deal this weekend anyway! The holidays are about spending time with those you care the most for, don't let the commercialization of our culture take over what should be a heart warming bonding experience for you and your family.
Hope you all have a fabulous Turkey Day!

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…
