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.

Want an lower priced option where you don't have send back your designer digs? Try my favorite new kind of shop RESALE! That's right ladies if you can find an amazing higher end resale shop in your area that caters to plus size women, then welcome to heaven. My fashion pearly gates is in Southeast Portland on Hawthorne you can find the amazingness of Savvy Plus which is a small boutique decked out in positive body image decor with helpful attendants, and the owner is one of the best buyers of plus size clothes.  If you're lucky enough to be in the Portland area you have to stop by, the get in new pieces every day and they are constantly changing stock, although yours truly is coveting the Louis Vuitton red purse on the wall, and last time I was in their I scored a cute Coach bag for $37! If you're looking for value resale is the way to go the buyers are very picky about what they take in so you know you'll end up with all the nice things you're craving and who could be upset at saving money and looking good?

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…
