Summer in the City

I actually got to wear this right before Labor Day and with a smidgen of a summer left.  I'm in love with this top. Now if you are looking for flattery this top won't be for you because it's very voluminous, but if you are looking for something that makes you feel super fashionable, then this is your top.   So lately I've been obsessed with the ASOS white collection.  It's a collection of what I consider fashion forward items. It only goes up to a size 14, but a lot of the items are oversized (I mean really oversized) and a size 12 or 14 in the oversized pieces can accommodate most plus bodies. This shirt is an example of that. The trapeze style fits over my hips with ease.

How to Make Denim on Denim Pop!

I know you guys are side-eyeing me. theCURVYcon is so so close and I usually go radio silent during this time because there are so many things to get done.  I decided to jump back in on a post that I have been meaning to do FOREVER. Denim on denim is one of my favorite looks to wear and it's relatively easy to pull off.  Here's some of my tips on how to make denim on denim pop:


Plus Size Bridal Shopping Made Easy

When I got married, there were so few bridal gowns that went into plus sizes and even fewer that carried plus size samples sizes in store for their plus size customers.  I can't lie, it made me sad not to be able to try my wedding dress before I purchased it.  Essense of Australia is actively changing this and giving their plus size brides the same experience as their straight size brides through their EveryBody/EveryBride selections.  They have partnered with bridal retailers across the world to cater to the 18+ bride along with training the staff of these boutiques to be knowledgeable so they can help the brides find the best fit, style and even ways you can change your gowns through alterations so that you get the gown that looks best on you and that you feel good in. Find retailers near you that carry the Essense of Australia EveryBody/EveryBride collection.

How To Save Your Thighs From Chafing And Look Stylish For Summer

Miami is one of my favorite summer time spots for a quick vacation.  There is a beautiful beach, a great night-life and loads of things to do.  All of this in a very hot and humid place.  It's of those places where you want to skip the shapewear.  Now the Miami vibe is all about having fun in the sun, but also about your personal style and fashion.  I always want to have the right looks when I'm out and about and most of the time that involves wearing dresses.  So how do you keep your thighs safe from the chafe without having something on underneath?  Chafing Relief Powder Gel® from Monistat Complete Care® is how I protect my thighs from moisture caused by the heat and friction.  It creates a silky barrier so your thighs can easily swish by each other.  I've been using this product for 5+ years.  I happened upon it in the drug store one day while I was perusing the feminine product aisle and have had some stashed in my purse ever since.
