October 30th, 2023 by

I loved being pregnant. It was the only time in my life that I was really excited about the size of my tummy. Since then, it’s been a bit of a nuisance, as pants that start out feeling comfortable can be snug by the end of the day. Not all tummies are created equal, of […]

Plus Size Style Principles

July 24th, 2023 by

Ugh. The challenges of shopping as a woman in 2023 are too real. We have more choices than ever before, almost too many, but the options still seem limited. This is especially true of those of us outside of standard size ranges. Try finding a petite top in 2023. It’s harder than ever. The same […]

Body Type Series | Straight Body Type

September 28th, 2022 by

Let me set the record straight about straight body types. (I’m so corny!). Seriously, though. So many women with this body shape struggle to dress their bodies in a flattering way without recognizing that they are secretly supermodels.
