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!

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…

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…
