Went out on Saturday night and I got a chance to wear the amazing @societyplus tulle skirt. The skirt is so beautiful and so full I felt like a princess. I will have a proper review up in a week or so but I couldn’t wait to share. #societyplus #plussize #plussizefashion #fatshion #psblogger #bbwfashion #wearethethey #fatshionista #thisisplus #teamcurvee #beautywithplus #honoryourcurves #wearethethey #volup2isdiversity #fatfashion #fatballerina #tutu #tulleskirt #tutuootd #fatbabe #andigetdressed #effyourbeautystandards #boldandcurvy #plus_isamust #allblackeverything #allblackootd

In this life, I’m usually not learning anything unless my tits are hanging out and I’m one errant exhale from falling flat on my ass. Thankfully, the #gopro can capture every moment of my learning process.

Even though I practice #yoga at home every day, it’s been months since I’ve attended a live class. I was feeling like a big spender this weekend so I went to two Bikram classes and the sweat pouring out my body felt like tears from heaven. I know you think I’m being hyperbolic but for real: TEARS FROM HEAVEN.

However, being back in a class environment shed light on some aspects of yoga classes that I love and hate. For one thing, why is everyone showing off so much? I like to start my #Bikram class w/ a relaxing savasana, but I witnessed all kinds of advanced posing by my classmates before we even began pranayama breathing. Maybe I’ve been cooped up in my home studio too long but…..Where they do THAT at? Whatever, far be it from me to criticize someone else’s practice- do your thing, kung fu pandas. Also, why is everyone breathing so damn hard? It sounds like a vacuum cleaner convention in here.

However, I forgot that the best reason to attend live class is teacher interaction- having a teacher give corrections on alignment is SO HELPFUL and totally worth the drop-in rate. I don’t think I’ll be immediately transitioning into daily in-class practice in the near future, but it’s nice to see how the other half lives.

This film follows the journeys of three plus-size models as they struggle against the distorted perception of body image that is being perpetuated in people’s minds.

Thank you!

Day 25 of #backbendmadness2014 w/ @kinoyoga @fitqueenirene @beachyogagirl - #hanumanasana

I’ve been feeling extremely thankful for my body recently. I spent such a huge chunk of my life picking at myself for all of my perceived flaws- gobble neck, thunder thighs, miles of stretch marks, chubby belly, etc. I mean, there’s got to be a ‘fuck it’ point. Essentially, I had to realize- what if I spend my whole life trying to lose weight and I still have all of my 'flaws’? Y'all, I have no fucking intention of wasting away my 20s in pursuit of half baked ideas about what my body 'should’ look like- why bother when this is what it DOES look like?

*CALL ME ON THE OUIJA BOARD*

The Ouija Board, tool of the devil, quirky family game or porthole for the non-conscious mind? 


I’m super obsessed with Ouija boards. Ever since I was a little girl spirit boards have always intrigued me. The thought of the dead being able to communicate though the board is super wickedly spooky and awesome. About a year ago I started to create Ouija jewelry just because I loved the board so much. All of the jewelry I’m wearing was created by me. You can find it at Everyday is like Halloween. I peeped this spooky skirt on Etsy a few months back and I knew I had to have it. The skirt is from a shop called Toot Sweet Skirts. The owner Linda is so rad. She creates amazing handmade vintage and novelty skirts. Items that really make you stand out in a crowd. Her skirts fit up to a size 28 waist. I do believe she also does custom so if you wanted larger I think she would be able to accommodate. I was a bit concerned about the length of the skirt, because it looked really short in the photo. As you can see it’s not short at all on me at 5'6". This skirt has a gold ribbon at the waist and had I wore it high with a shirt tucked in I would have shown it. I decided to go with a longer shirt I picked up at Eshakti. I opted to have the embroidered hearts removed when I ordered this piece. The shirt was ordered with custom measurements. That is one of the things I enjoy about Eshakti. Any of their items can be tailored to your measurements for a fee of $7. 

As you can see I’m still big time into hats and gloves. I picked both of these up on Ebay for cheap. The gloves seem to be sold out so I can’t post a link. However, there are tons and tons of inexpensive stylish gloves on ebay. I love looking around.  Lastly I would like to talk lipstick. I’m so thrilled that bold, punky and goth colors have come back. As of late I have been experimenting with liquid lipsticks, stains and tars. I have found a gnarly company called Pretty Zombie Cosmetics. For this blog I’m wearing their liquid in Black Cat. If you are into the long last matte liquid lipsticks PZC has some wicked products. Their price point is sweet at $11 a stick.

I have found the pretty zombie products sell out super fast. If you see a color you want snatch it up quick.

I just ordered myself a blue that I’m super pumped to try. Blue lips aren’t only for the walking dead.

I love putting together unique and interesting looks for my blog. If there’s a brand you’re interested in learning more about, let me know in the comments. If you know of any plus size brands that carry items you think I will dig, also feel free to drop me a note. I’m always looking for new brands to try. 

Thanks

Day 26 of #backbendmadness2014- #scorpionpose.

I can find a million ways to correct my body in this photo but I’m enjoying the journey too much to care. One day my arms won’t splay, my upper back will bend more fluidly, & my toes will be close enough to kiss. But it’s ok that today is not that day.

We’re in LOVE with Blogger Babe Darshana’s Black-on-Black Beach style! She paired our Boho Lace Cardigan (style W6851) with our Interlock Embroidery Tank (style W5003) in her most recent blog post over at Picture Posey

She’s one of our NEWEST Brand Ambassadors and we think her style is INCREDIBLE! Check out what she had to say about Umgee USA & Umgee Plus in her full post!

Insecurities are a bitch: The Outfit I would never wear.

This is an outfit I was over the moon to order. It would sit in my closet for three years.

This is the outfit that shows my fat belly. The one that makes my hips look too wide.

This is the outfit that made me cry the first time I saw it in the mirror. This outfit emerged today and I said “screw it”   This is the outfit I will wear today. I will look fierce and fabulous. I look good with a belly, hips and big butt.  Insecurities are a bitch. I never thought I could wear body con. This year I WILL embrace form fitting clothing.
