Memorial Day Looks that won't break the bank! All your plus size bbq dilemma's solved!.

Good Morning My Lovlies!

Memorial Day is fast approaching on May 27th, not only is that day my current yogurt stash expires, it is also the day we honor those who have served our country and given the ultimate sacrifice. That being said, the bbq's, beach parties and cook outs that will occur require a type of California chic I'm very familiar with, here are three looks sure to please any Chubby Girl:
 

Women's Plus Tie-Waist Blouses
Old Navy $19.00













Pair the tunic shirt with these beautiful ocean blue pants and a red or turquoise necklace and it's perfect for a family bbq or brunch.
Women's Plus The Rockstar Pop-Color Skinny Jeans
 
Old Navy $39.50











 
















Ivory Floral Chiffon Tank Dress SKU: 580718
Ivory Floral Dress Torrid.com $26.00

This is a pretty easy breezy date look from Torrid, perfect for Sunday Brunch with the girls pair with nude flats or for a naughty but nice look with sky high white or pink pumps.

 
 
 
If you looking for a kicked back day at the board walk or park, stay comfy and cool in capri skinny jeans and a striped shirt. The key to wearing horizontal stripes when you're a Plus is to make sure the stripes are broad and in fun colors when you wear them on tops, conversely if you wear pinstripes makes sure those are on the bottom. Pair this looks with a long thin shiny chain necklace to create an even clean line. Like this one:
Forever 21.com $4.80
 
jcp™ Striped Hem Tee
Striped Henley Tee $6 Clearance JC Penny
jcp™ Slim Ankle-Length Jeans -PlusJC Penny Skinny Jeans up to size 24 $30.00
 
 
 
 
Don't forget to check back next Friday for my glamour shoot photos, it's time I start loving myself more and your should too. You're gorgeous you always have been and you always will be!

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…
