Everything from NYFW to affordable plus size clothing!

Y'all, it's no secret I love New York.  While the city can be a tad overwhelming, there's such an incredible mix of people, art & culture, and just this ENERGY in the air there. Aaaaand, NYC is home to one of my fave plus size boutiques:  plus BKLYN. I met the...
If you're a plus size babe learning to sew clothes, you may find that the options for plus-size garments are LIMITED.  I've spent hours googling, "Where Can I Buy Plus Size Sewing Patterns?"  Because, while you can always "grade up" patterns to fit you, that takes a lot of time,...
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...
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...
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...
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...
