Someone sent this to me today and it has been making me smile ever since! Happy Hump day!
I know what you’re thinking, it’s summer, “why on earth are you talking about Fall?!” Listen, it’s August, if I’m struggling to find a new maxi dress it’s time to think about the cozy sweaters I will be wearing in just over a months time. I recently had the chance to check out the fall collection from Addition Elle and I’m excited! Here’s a look at my must have pieces for fall!
I must have this Camo jacket. My friend @MrTimChan will approve this purchase for sure he’s been on me for over a year to get one. I think this is it! Loves it!
I love dresses and this little number has sweetness written all over it! I can’t wait to have it! I think I will wear it while crunching leaves on the city streets in some new boots! Oh ya, I’m a city girl now!
I love everything about this outfit. I will probably steal the whole look for myself and I won’t feel bad about it! I can see myself sipping tea in this one while in the park watching the dogs play.
I’m such a sucker for black and white! I can’t help it. It’s black, it’s white, it’s mine!
I. LOVE, THIS. JACKET! My heart hurt leaving it at the preview. It’s a must must have! I’ve already planned the boots, pants and shirt to wear with it!
These are my top 5 must have looks from Addition Elle for fall! What do you think? What are some of your must haves for fall? Let me know in the comments! Better yet, send me you #OOTD pics at email@example.com and I’ll post them so we can all marvel at your fashion brilliance!
I stumbled on this movie “A Perfect 14” online today. I’m not sure what to think about it. I love the new-found attention that plus size fashion and modelling is getting now, I feel like I’m a part of the club, but after watching the trailer I feel part cheerleader part fat basher. On the one hand, it’s fantastic to showcase women bigger than the norm as beautiful desirable beings. On the other hand I’m looking at many of the women and thinking, they’re not that big, really, A Perfect 14? I wish. Isn’t a 14 just average? Am I a hater? I don’t want to turn into one of those people who, because I’m bigger than a 14, acts like anything less than my size isn’t important. I mean we’re all in this together, right?! Who am I to say who is fat enough to represent the group? I think my problem is that I feel like there isn’t enough of a representation of the typical “plus size” woman. It’s like even when plus size women are represented we’re represented by the version closest to largest example of the norm and with that comes the feeling that you’re still too big for this under served group that you belong to. It’s a never-ending circle.
I’m still intrigued by the trailer and would love to see the film in its entirety.
What do you think? Am I being an overly sensitive whiner? Is there a such thing as being too small to be considered a big girl?
Last night I watched the new Isabel Toledo collection for Lane Bryant, go down the runway, and I think I’ve reached the age where I have a true appreciation for the sophisticated. Just about everything I saw, I actually saw myself wearing these clothes and I was surprised. There was a time when the only time I wore something remotely fancy was to a wedding or a funeral and both were few and far between. Now I’m watching this gorgeous collection thinking, I can wear that to work, that to dinner and that to a patio! What I really liked about the collection was that it was clean. Floral’s were kept to a minimum and the color palette was pretty much, black and white, my favourite! I can’t wait to start shopping.
If you didn’t catch the show. Check the link below. Let me know what you think about the collection in the comments. Special shout out to all the models, including my fave Ashley Graham, and especially the one that fell multiple times during her walk. It was nice to see all of her fellow models come to help her getting back to the end of the runway.
Happy New Year!
This one is a little late but oh well! Let’s just say I had a really good time on New Years! I am not paying for it with the cold from hell. New Years Eve was all about the sparkle for me this year. I didn’t go anywhere special, just a couple of house parties, but I wanted the bling so I mixed my sparkle. What do you think? Too much?
Special thanks to my drunk friend who snapped this picture for me. Happy New Year Everyone!
