plus size review


This pineapple look has been a summer staple and I encourage every fat femme to go out and get yourself one! It’s a Cowcow dress from Amazon and it runs from x-small to xxx-large. I am wearing the 3x large and I am usually a size 28/30. These dresses stretch a lot so even if you don’t think you would fit into it, get one and try anyways! It is made out of very light jersey so it’s been a blessing in the summer. 

Pineapple purse is from Torrid. (They’ve been making crossbody bags to fit fat bodies and I am so happy about it! The strap is 52 inches, I believe,)

Shoes are a size 12 from Lane Bryant!


I’ve been waiting SO LONG for my Fab Fit Fun box and it’s finally here and I opened it just for you!!

Box reveal on Dia & Co. plus size fashion curation!!! This is a good, one, check it out! <3 @diaandco #MyDiaStyle #psfashion

Can we all talk about Scarlet for a second? The curvy plus size goddess of the Lunar Chronicles? Who is sexy as fuck and can also take down a goddamn lunatic while everyone else is making speeches. Who is canonically called the “alpha female”. Who is the most badass French farmer to exist in science fiction. Who loves herself and is confident in her body. Did I mention she got a fucking genetic mutant ‘bred’ to overcome sexual urges to fall in love with her? BAMF if I’ve ever seen one.

Honestly in love with these YA novels. Set in countries other than the U.S. Well researched with FANTASTIC backstory/world making… (Something I felt genuinely cheated out of in The Hunger Games/Divergent Series) Also great representation of different ethnicities. The one thing that it is lacking would be representation of the LBGT+ community. But hey… The last book is still coming. A girl can hope!!!

Where does the time go?

This is a detailed look at my 2015. It’s almost everything I documented this year and its almost in chronological order.

What a big year, it seems like it contained two years all in one.

Eloquii Re-Launch Purchase Review

Yesterday I received my very first Eloquii purchase since their 2014 relaunch. I’ve been an Eloquii fan since their first opening a few years ago as part of The Limited and I still own pieces from that time. I bought three items from Eloquii. The boyfriend cardigan in black, the lace overlay pencil skirt and the everyday belt in black.

I was glad to find a belt that was long enough to fit around my waist so I was glad about that. The belt is faux leather which I knew before I purchased on their website but it would be nice if they considered some genuine leather belts for future collections (I’m somewhat of a leather snob). I will see how long this holds up because it’s a really thin belt but I want something that can last me a good while since I’ll likely be wearing it a good bit.

I really like the black cardigan a lot. The fabric is 70% rayon 30% nylon so I don’t think the color will wash out easily which is a plus (no pun intended lol). It definitely feels like the kind of fabric you would expect to find in stores with similar price points. My only caution would be that it looks like it has the potential to snag so be careful what types of accessories you’re wearing. It’s hand wash or dry clean only which could be a deal breaker for some but I’m perfectly okay with that especially if it will last a while. The other thing I liked was the length which provides extra coverage. This turned out to be my favorite piece from the whole purchase.

The orange overlay skirt was supposed to be my fave. Actually that was the one piece I was eyeing the whole time which lead me to make my purchase. It didn’t make my favorite list when it came out the box for several reasons. The skirt is not very structured. The skirt is basically a stretchy lining with a single layer of lace. It looks great on the model on but if you have an hourglass shape like mine and large hips it may not work well for you. It did nothing for me except make my hips look bigger and the lack of structure didn’t help either. I have a pencil skirt from Eloquii of old and it’s made of a cotton fabric with some stretch but it looks nice and structured when I put it on. I can actually wear that to work but not this one. Stretch isn’t bad. I like a little stretch in clothes for comfort but a skirt that’s entirely stretch for plus size with hips and jiggles is a no-no in my book. I was hoping that this overlay skirt would have had similar fabric to my original pencil skirt but that wasn’t the case. The picture in the top right shows the fabric in more detail. The whole skirt feels like a petticoat, not something you should be wearing on it’s own. The fabric felt a little cheap and the nylon on the bottom of the lace made it look even cheaper. The other issue I had also was that because there was no structure to the skirt the lace would ride up and leave the lining exposed. Not a good look. If Eloquii re-did this skirt with better quality fabric such as a cotton with a little bit of stretch for comfort with the lace actually sewn on and a stretch lining below I would re-consider because I do like lace and the color is pretty. Unfortunately I will have to send this one back. I hope Eloquii doesn’t start using this kind of fabric on everything now. I like stretch for comfort but I still want pieces that will make me look and feel great not highlight my flaws so I’m all for quality fabrics.
