Nextflix for Plus size Fashion? Worth the cash or save your pennies?

Is this the new Netflix? Gwynnie Bee is an online subscription where you can take out anywhere from 1-5 pieces of designer clothing ranging from $35-79 price tag. You can keep the clothes as long as you want but you can return in the provided bags and get new pieces every month, just like netflix it's the same price every month. This sounds pretty tempting to the clothes horse in all of us especially with gems like these Vince Camuto, teal wrap top and the Igigi dress on the far left in green. However, there are some questionable "designers". Lands End is a very reasonable, nice everyday workwear line, it is not however what I would call "designer".  I think it's a neat idea and you get the first 30 days free and it is nice to not have to worry about cleaning, the website states you can "return in any state" so my ultimate verdict is if you choose to use the service pick only the higher end designers in order to test how you will feel in the piece and style, I've been a big fan of trends but you can use sites like Gwynnie Bee to find your own personal style and try something new without make a major financial committment.

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…

Hot Holiday Outfits from Turkey Day to the NYC Ball drop

So I am on the hunt for occasion appropriate holiday outfits here's what I've found so far:

Are you meeting your boyfriends parents for the first time this Thanksgiving? Keep young, classy and sophisticated in a belted tunic
Pair with these ankle length pants, remove the belt though and  Don't forget to tone down the accessories, if you're going to wear hair down no need for earrings, instead do a bold lipstick to match the belt, if you're wearing your hair up or you have a shorter style go with a more neutral lip and do diamond or pear studs, timeless.
