Lane Bryant Fashion Show – Planet Hollywood


*note – lesson learned. do NOT move photos around in flickr after you’ve already published a blog post. *phew* thanks to everyone who let me know there were issues with the images. all should be fixed now!

after the curvy revolution fashion show ended at planet hollywood in las vegas, BOY were we in for a treat. the lane bryant show left my head spinning. it was what great fashion shows should be, exciting, full of surprises, AND full of pieces that made me go “OOO i totally want that.” i’ll be super interested to see if some of these pieces make it to stores. specifically a black skirt that you’ll know when you see cause it says, “netta” all over. and the leather studded items … oh yeah.

i thought about doing a separate post for each portion of the fashion show that went down, but i just loved every bit of it so much that i want to share it all with you. full coverage, if you will.

without further adieu, here are the photos!

ashley graham got the night started right in a beautiful red lingerie ensemble. click the photo for the larger versions on flickr and to see the back!

Plus Size Round Up Jan 4 2011


happy new year y’all! you’ve probably heard that a million times by now, especially if you went down to philly for the mummers day parade. what’s a mummer you ask? someone else explains it better than i do.

anyway – i am excited about 2011, but, of course, i’m still labeling things 2010. can you believe it’s a whole new decade? anyway, just because it’s a new year, it may mean it’s time to try something new in your wardrobe. have you chosen anything new yet? i’ll be bringing you some updates on some new pieces and retailers that i’m trying out, for sure.

now, here’s what you really came for – the plus size round up! what’s going on in the world of the fatshion bloggers? well, not much this week. the new years must’ve thrown everyone out of whack! here are my fave picks!

1. madison plus’s new arrivals section. a new dress for the new year, perhaps?

2. and what about 2010? check out which curvier ladies were the best dressed.

3. hey weesha! i love your leopard harem pants! wish i could get some here.

4. chubble bubble rang in the new year comfortable AND cute

5. have you checked out lala belle from australia? stylish curves gives us a peek.

ASOS Future Stylist 2011


most of you know that i’m working as a stylist now, and you’ve probably figured out that i specialize in plus sizes. ASOS, who has a line called ASOS Curve, which features really on-trend pieces that are cut for curvy bodies, is having a competition. they are looking for someone to style a shoot for ASOS Magazine, and i’ve put together two looks that i’m going to submit. no doubt, most of what i wear is very original, and styled brilliantly. i’ve also got a wonderful photographer and photoshopper in my amazingly awesome boyfriend, sean-paul. he gets the red eye out. let me know what you think of these two outfits – which one is your fave?

hair piece – ALDO necklace – target dress – ASOS Curve gloves – ALDO boots – victoria’s secret

turban – beauty supply store in my hood earrings – probably target caftan dress – ASOS Curve bracelets – a mix of vintage and department store ring – JC (jacques penney) shoes – ALDO

special thanks to my good friend emily for the tip off!
