Big girls just wanna have fun

Gonna party like its 1982 (when I was 4).  

 I just picked up a cute pair of abstract-stripe b&w leggings from Ross  here in the UT  and thought I can get extra mileage out of my fall wardrobe by picking up a couple more fun pairs.  It would seem most stores don't think older girls, and certainly not big girls, want to have fun. Why should little girls be the only
ones sporting designer colored legs. They should not.  I too have a sense of fun, whimsy and adventure. Now I am not looking for Disney prints or anything, just want to add a pop of color, texture, or pattern without fully regressing. Here are some fun and sexy tights that you can incorporate into your wardrobe without looking  like a toddler.

What's on your mind?

Amanda M : Hey chica what is up with you? I am Headed back to Vegas in 10 days with the fella and need a cocktail dress for the Opera. Dont have a clue where to start. Got any ideas?

Inspector33 : Hi. Good to hear from you. Wow, the opera, sounds amazing. The good thing is the opera these days is (generally) no longer the fully formal affair it used to be. Semi formal wear is acceptable. I have come up with a couple options (formal ...and sem-formal) for you in a range of prices: Nordstrom's Plus size has some great options esp under the "occasions" section "guest of the wedding", or "formal".  Igigi  has great options for you also. Let me know if you need more help. Please post fashion questons at or email them to Thanks. Happy Shopping.

Dollface is Candy Sweet

I was looking at Dollface is Candy Sweet's blog and saw this outfit in today's post. Don't know what she's saying as it seems to be entirely in Dutch but I really like the outfit. The dress is cute and fits her well, love the opaque tights, and the cardigan is a great color and gives it that slouchy, chic element. The glasses stay; like.  Punch it up with a couple of bangles, a chunky necklace and either a platform heel in some wild color or a flat knee boot and you've got an outfit that says "I just threw this on and I look THIS good". Carry on .

Foot Fetish

I absolutely love shoes. Being fabulous does not stop at the knee, or ankle  but  it can be hard for a curvy fashionista to find shoes that fit her plus-size foot. Wide width shoes can be hard to find in cute, colorful, sexy, current styles. In looking for some summer updates to my shoe wardrobe I found some very hot shoes that I want to share with you. All of the shoes showcased are either made for a wide foot or come in wide-width options.
Tips:Keep in mind the shoe profiles that will balance and enhance your overall look and make your legs look great. Platforms generally look good on slimmer legs and can help balance an apple type figure. Though slim heels, like stilettos, look good on everyone, they can especially lengthen and visually slim a larger lower half. Most importantly, go with a shoe that makes you feel confident, sassy, and sexy.

15 and Fabulous

Ok, in a world of high priced plus-size clothing, gotta love 1015  a plus-size site where all the clothes are $15 each and shipping is a flat $6.99. I haven’t shopped there before so I can’t tell you about the quality of the clothes but I love the idea of being able to update your closet and experiment on the cheap. I posted some styles I like; There are some very cute, girly items, and some more edgy pieces (like the Supa Dupa Fly- esque gold jacket below). If you order from them, let us know what you think of the customer service, shipping, and item when received.  Happy shopping.




DANCING WITH THE STARS - "Episode 1201" - A star-studded cast filled with celebrities across a variety of genres are set to compete each week on the dance floor. Performing either the Foxtrot or the Cha Cha Cha, all 11 couples danced for the first time on live national television in the spectacular two-hour season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars," MONDAY, MARCH 21 (8:00-10:02 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/ADAM LARKEY)KIRSTIE ALLEY, MAKSIM CHMERKOVKSIY
George Lopez, in so many words, called Kirstie Alley a pig after watching her on Dancing with the stars. That’s just nasty, hater behavior. Cheers to Big Life, no matter her age or weight, she is always funny, real, and gorgeous. On DWTS she moved with grace and a sex appeal that is all Kirstie. I usually like George Lopez’s humor but this was just sour.  

Don't look crazy

Running late today. Entertained the thought about neglecting the face to save time but there is never a cause for such drastic measures. No matter how well put together your outfit is, if you don't take the time to put your best face forward, you will look unpolished, and without realizing it, put off an "I don't care" vibe. The least you can do is rub on some tinted moisturizer (you should be moisturizing anyway), add a blink of mascara and a kiss of lip gloss. It literally takes two minutes. It's easy and fast to walk out the door, or sit around, looking pretty.  There's no reason to look crazy.

Tip: If you can't find a tinted moisturizer that matches your skintone, try mixing your liquid foundation and an oil free moisturizer. For sheer coverage try a 1:1 ratio.  If you need a little more coverage try 2:1.
