Annoyed that you can’t buy clothes in your size? Use the Clothes Calling Card. The Clothes Calling Card Campaign (CCC) is a collaboration between @dreyafean, @allygarrett, @coleytangerinaand @merxplat to raise awareness of how many people love fashion but are left out of ‘mainstream’ sizing.
The card is intentionally designed to be applicable to all clothing items, and for people of all sizes who experience exclusion from clothing stores.
Feel free to personalise your card, and use which ever one you feel most comfortable with.
Hopefully, together we can start a conversation about how many people would love to spend money on clothes they like, but aren’t deemed desirable customers by too many designers and stores.
The CCC reminds those people what they’re missing out on.
NEW POST: Lookit me now ma, I’m a model!
I have two bits of exciting news to share! First of all, plus style staple Fashion to Figure has launched their new denim collection for fall. Secondly, they tapped a few NYC-based style bloggers to model their jeans, including yours truly!
It was such a fun day; after picking out my outfit I had my hair and makeup did (who doesn’t love getting dolled up, right?). They shot the entire lookbook on their roof, and I think it all came out awesome!
I picked out a pair of emerald green skinnies, and cuffed the hem for an on-trend look. I also layered a black & white peplum top to help make my hair pop. I really loved that they allowed us to choose and style our own outfits, it really showed how genuine Fashion to Figure is.
Want to check out the behind the scenes footage from the shoot? You can check it out here or on Fashion to Figure’s YouTube page.
You should also go check out Fashion to Figure’s blog; it’s filled with outfit ideas and helpful fashion tips.
So what did you think of all the looks? Which outfit is your favorite and which jeans are you crushing on?
Thick-Calved Knee High Boot Lovin’ Babes, Listen Up
I’ve got a secret for you, but first comes a story.
So I ordered these adorable boots that just arrived a few days ago, two pair of the exact same knee high boots, one brown & one black. I open the box, super psyched to put them on and *GASP* they won’t zip half way up my thigh. This is only a slight surprise to me as I’ve had problems with knee high boots in the past. But I took my pinterest mind and started searching. And I have found the ultimate solution to my thick-calved problem.
ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL IS MY NEW BEST FRIEND.
I saw it on several different websites, spray the boots with alcohol and voila! You now fit into those sexy knee-high boots that you’re oh so depressed don’t fit. So, without further adieu let us do some learnin’ about this shit, okay?
Step One: cry about your boots because you paid a boat load for them, or you were thrifty and you’re still sad they don’t fit.
Step Two: head to your nearest drug store and buy yourself a big ole bottle of 70% isopropyl alcohol. I paid 3.49, with tax for mine and I got a huge bottle. The smaller one is around 2 something! Stretching spray, which is 50% isopropo (which i will call it from now one) & water, goes for around $5-10
Step Three: Come home, marvel at your boots from across the room looking oh so lonely and not warn at all, because you’re about to put those babies on!
Step Four: Get a spray bottle, fill it half way with water and the other half with isopropo. Screw that lid on and,
SPRAY SPRAY SPRAY THE INSIDE OF THOSE BOOTS. Spray it like a salt shaker. Spray it like you’re trying to make it rain on them bitches. There’s no need to get those toesies wet okay, just spray the inside calf part!
Then, slip those babies on and streeeetch the sides to get those suckers on. Boots got a zipper and you’re just so scared they won’t fit? Oh babe, they will. Trust me. These boots now fit like a glove, and not the kind that let’s your fat hang over the sides either. Sexy, glove-like knee high boots that have you feeling so hot and confident you’re ready to do anything. Leave the boots on for a few hours if you can so they form to your legs.
Going to wear skinny jeans with those boots and you only spray them to fit those sexy naked legs? No problem!!!! Spray your boots before every wear and they’ll fit like a glove every time.
That’s it. That’s the secret. Isopropyl Alcohol the shit out of your boots and never cry because they don’t fit over your calves again. Don’t spend money to ship them back. Don’t send them to some shoe repair shop who is going to charge you $50 to do the same thing you could’ve done for $4. Don’t spend money for wide-calved boots, unless you want to of course but I’m a college student and I’m not rolling in the dough. Also, have no fear this does NOT ruin the leather.
Rock those knee-high boots, babes and be confident as ever!
Another tops I received from
Fitfat - a grey crop tops (But they called them sport bra.) The size doesn’t fit well with me. It is not a brand mistake but it is my big problem in most of plus size’s size. My breasts are smaller than the average plus size cup!!!…That’s always my problems hahahaha…Otherwise it would fit me perfectly.
