"Vent Post"

I recently started shopping online for my new wardrobe. I tend to look for sites that showcase their plus size clothing right along side the other sizes they carry.

One pet peeve of mine is how sites segregate plus size clothing to one tab under the other five to ten tabs that are catering to nonplus size consumers as if we dont noticed this. I can only speak for myself but I think that's a confidence shaker subconsciously. Before I even see the merchandise I am reminded that most of the fashion industry sees me as a lesser.

I've been buying things i wouldn't normally buy. With that being said I look for models that have similar body frames and silhouettes as mine. This is what prompt me to write this "vent post". I know I'm not the first and I won't be the last to voice their discontent on this matter.

You see I'm a plus size girl with small (no hips) hip huge boobs and a flat butt. Most companies don't hire models with these physical attributes which adds another hurdles for me to have to master while online shopping. I can't tell you how many times I've went out on a limb and bought something online for it to arrive at my door step,wrapped and shiny, and quickly see that my hips were not the hips the manufacturer had in mind when crafting this garment.

I see sites like gslovesme.com and I admire how they showcase so many different women with different shapes and sizes. This makes shopping on their site so enjoyable. Ugh well I feel better...later loves

Who is Christian Siriano



Today, while checking my google alert, I noticed a name repeatedly popping up. This lead me to ask myself, "Who is Christiano Siriano?".  So I started my search. This lead me on a glamours star studded trail of gowns and pose. 
I started with this first article that popped up on my google alerts. The headline read...
" Cardi B, Whoopi Goldberg, And Laverne Cox Sit Front Row At Christian Siriano NYFW Show "

I was intrigued interested in this designer. Something else, other than this name started to stand out. I noticed the diversity in this designers work. For women of all ages colors and sizes. Every single one looking amazingly glamorous. 
From names like Angela Bassett, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Lopez, Solange, Elle King and Whoopi Goldberg; this list goes on and on.

After a little more research on his website I found that Christian Siriano is the youngest person to ever appear on the Crain's “40 Under 40” list, and was a member of Forbes' "30 Under 30" in 2015. He was named “Designer of the Year” at the 2016 AAFA American Image Awards and won the Couture For A Cause “Designer of the Decade” award that same year. He co-founded accessories e-commerce retailer “Send the Trend” and served as Chief Curator until its acquisition by QVC.


The designer has an eye for every skin tone and shape. He knows how to make you glamours but also comfortable. This is obvious on every woman's face that I have seen dawning one of his fierced designs. He isn't afraid to use bold and striking colors. So many of his designs demand attention. You can deny the detail and thought that was put into his work. The consideration for the person who has the honor of wearing one of his pieces is very clear. For some pieces you can also tell who it is for without seeing the person wearing it.

Tailored pants suits, big skirts, to african inspired prints I can not wait to see what he will share next.

It's been a few years since I posted on this blog but I never once forgotten about this space. I know a lot of you have been vocal on where I've been. 

Just know that i'm back and better then ever. I have so much planned for this space. Form vlogs to lingerie reviews to behind the scene footage from my future photoshoots. I look forward to pumping out quality content for all of you.

Rouge and Nude with REBDOLLS



Tis the season to be grateful and fashionable. Hues of red and natural nudes are
popping up and turning heads. Now I don't know about you guys but I am super happy that Fall has finally come.
The bright colors and spunky prints were okay but that just wasn't my style. After awhile a girl just needs something classy and chic to make her feel sexy. I started to notice a pattern and it was women finding and wearing different shades of nude and rouge.


   
             

 "DOLLS ONLY" TURTLENECK TWO PIECE PALAZZO SET

  "With My Woes" Long Sleeve Swing Dress

I am quickly falling in love with this trend and Rebdolls are doing perfectly. Cant you see it; during the day a nice nude colored ensemble with hints of black and red. Ugh just to die for right! One of the main reasons I think this trend is amazing is that it doesn't take much to achieve these looks especially with REBDOLLS many options.
