Fall is here and Fashion is in full Swing! Film Noir looks, oxblood and preppy oh my!

Project D London Barbican Skater Dress
Fall is here again! But wait don't break out your boring turtlenecks just yet not until you look at my all time favorite dresses and pieces from this season. Simplybe.com a London outfitter has amazing pieces and often great deals like this Project D London dress is so versatile you can wear to both the office and your three dates afterward ;). The other body hugging dress is on trend with it's contrast shoulder detailing and metallic coloring.




    Who says you can't rock this seasons geometric, film noir and preppy trends? The bow blouse below will help you pull of collegiate chic, add a varsity jacket and you're now ahead of the curve, bell curve that is! I love the way the Barbican Skater dress (above) is shown with blue pumps, perfect for a night out, pair with nude or neutral flats or heels for the office.

 The geo shirt down below is one of my faves, because it is done so well. Too often plus size women are told "stay away from patterns" but this one is done right, keep your help slick and simple and add some classy earring and you're good to go.

 Igigi always has beautiful dresses available but the "Ambrosia" below really caught my attention maybe not for everyday wear but a modern twist on the "film noir" look.

The two shirts featured also on Simplybe.com are perfect for the office or brunch with ladies, yes all of these pieces are a bit pricey but think of how many things you already own that go with them! Want to change up the look of a little black dress? Add a statement necklace or even a brooch, brooches they're not just for your grandma anymore!

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…

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…
