Everything from NYFW to affordable plus size clothing!

I've had a Vogue subscription for years, thinking it was the only go-to for fashion news/opinions/etc. Boy, was I wrong! As I've worked on my collection, and done my damndest to self-educate about the fashion industry, I've found some really helpful resources.  This tweet from Arlan really bring it home: https://twitter.com/ArlanWasHere/status/1046044818026246150 https://twitter.com/ArlanWasHere/status/1046046226045636611 I make...
As I've worked on my collection, I've learned a LOT about finding and purchasing fabrics.  As fabric stores close, people are being forced to take fabric shopping trips to cities like NYC or LA, or buy swatches online and then order. It's a lot of work. This last June, I went to...
Hey plus size babes! As a blogger/designer/stylist/etc, I do a LOT of online shopping. And, one of my goals in 2018 is to step up my white allyship (Wells Fargo, we’re going to break up). Below, I’ve shared a list of plus size boutiques and brands that are owned by black...
For the past few years, Chromat has staged a press takeover for NYFW.  Their PR agency is definitely kept busy, through a dynamic combination of diverse casting, interesting pieces and their rallying cry for women and femmes to become a #ChromatBabe. While I wait for Chromat to drop a 4X...
Finding professional or workwear options as a plus size babe is HARD.  I don't know why, but a lot of brands seem to think we want polyester suits that look like they're from 1994. And while I love a strong shoulder, I'm not a fan of being a potential fire...
This past weekend I attended the TCFStyle Expoin Atlanta, Georgia.  The event is in its fourth year, and was created by the one and only Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista.  I attended the event as the #official Barkwood Clothing Brand Ambassador.  Below, I've shared an event recap (with tips for next year!!), as...
Over the last few years, there has been an enormous increase in the plus size clothing offering.  Brands have sold out of fashion forward clothing overnight, and existing brands have extended their size offerings (not always with great success). Despite moving forward, there is still a decided lack in contemporary...
Plus Size Looks for LGBT Pride
    PRIDE MONTH IS ALMOST HEREEEEEEEE!!   In the past, I've usually attended, minimum, 3 pride weekends around the USA.  This year, I'm staying closer to home to work on my fashion collection, but I have so MANY THOUGHTS AND TIPS ON PUTTING TOGETHER OUTFITS FOR PRIDE. On Theme or No? The first thing you'll...
When I'm not blogging or trying to find walls to take OOTD pics in front of (lol, #BloggerLife) I'm working as a marketing and business consultant! And, before I entered the land of self-employment, I worked for a few different non-profits and startups in marketing and design!  I've managed and planned...
I met the founders of See Rose Go at PLUS Pop, a plus size pop up last year in Manhattan.  I was immediately struck by the quality and FEEL of their clothes, which (because I mostly shop online), isn't something that normally weighs into a purchase decision. I really appreciate the structure...
