Plus-Size Style for Ladies’ Night | Get the Look

Had the most fun ever doing this video with Garner Style & Vintage or Tacky! For some style tips, where we shop, etc… watch! Plus you get to watch me try and open champagne which is hilarious on it’s own..

“When I started plus-size blogging, my mom told me that I was just finding an excuse to be told that it’s OK when it’s not OK. I don’t think she’s ever going to get that I’m healthy and happy. I’m the fattest I’ve ever been, but I also feel I’m the prettiest I’ve ever been. People tell me, ‘You’re not fat, you’re beautiful,’ which implies that you can’t be fat and beautiful. So I use fat a lot as a positive way to describe myself. If we use these terms to empower, that will lead us toward the point where we don’t need them at all. Size-acceptance isn’t about saying fat is better than thin, it’s about saying beauty literally comes in every shape and size, and we should be able to use the words without them being tied to these treacherous connotations.”

I swoon!

That is how I felt once I got a peek of the new { Science/Visions } winter 2014 Domino Dollhouse lookbook!  The collection is dramatic, clean, modern, dark & intriguing.  Definitely after my heart!

Here are a few of my favourite pieces and editorial photos: {all images courtesy of Domino Dollhouse}

From Domino Dollhouse:

For our Winter 2014 collection, we wanted to focus on 2 things: fashion and wearability. Inspired by movies like
Bladerunner and Tron, we wanted to offer something the plus size community had never seen before. For our
Science/Visions collection, we are offering a taste of everyday luxury in a way that is anything but basic. We
focused on luscious, soft stretch jerseys and added edge-y accents, such as faux stretch suede and perforated
pleather. These pieces are perfect for everyday wear…the ultimate in cool comfort. This entire collection was
Made in the USA by a plus size woman-owned factory and the quality is superb. The Science/Visions pieces are
available in sizes 1X-4X and range from $35-140. The collection will be launched on 11.14.14.

What do you guys think??  I absolutely adore the palette and the textures look lux and edgy!  I’d love to get my hands on a few pieces, specifically the moon leggings, that silky looking purpley grey crop tee, the geometric print maxi set and that jacket with the perforated faux leather!

As I said… I swoon!

If there’s one thing that we love (besides our customers, obvs) it’s midi skirts. They’re kind of a big deal around here, and we’ve loved celebrating midi moments with you on #XOQ. You’ve shown us how you wear midi skirts to the office, church, date night, brunch, art galleries, and at more important moments in your life. Every time you upload a photo, our entire team fawns over your awesome style. Inspired by you, we’ve created #MidiMoment, a new campaign that celebrates all the versatile ways midis can be worn and the ladies who love them.

We partnered with multi-talented Margie of Margie Plus to style a few of her favorite bloggers and provide the soundtrack for our campaign video. She styled looks on model/blogger Clementine of Bonjour Clem, Chante of Everything Curvy and Chic, Liz of P.S. It’s Fashion, Kellie of And I Get Dressed, and Sarah of Style IT that captured the versatility and wearability of the midis.

Do you love midi skirts as much as these ladies? Show off your style with #MidiMoment on Instagram! For more on the outfits, keep scrolling below the video. Check out the campaign’s feature on Yahoo! Style

10 Pairs Of Tights Any Plus-Size Fashionista Needs

Face it, fashion lovers. Your only hope for staying warm this winter while rocking a cute skater skirt or a short dress is to struggle into a pair of tights. But plus-size girls knows that tight shopping ain’t so easy.

Ask any plus-size fashionista, and she’ll tell you that the “one size fits all” tag that plagues about 99.9% of tights on the market should be followed by “…unless you are a size 12 or up. Sorry.” In case you can’t tell, finding a pair of A+ tights that are A) super cute and funky, B) actually come in a size 1x or up, and C) cost less than $1,000 (or something) is almost impossible.

Lucky for you, I’ve delved deep into the depths of online shopping to find the best tights that will actually celebrate your curvy figure. Trust me, there are at least two pairs of tights here you’ll love. At least.


Today, I got my Tarot read by a witch. This outfit is so coordinated because I had to send some signals to the goddess of fashion. Outfit details and the story of my future is on Imaginary Ghoulfriend.

I hope more perfect hair, eyeliner and accessories are seen for my future in my next reading.

p.s. major thanks to beccabae for the scarf and “nope” ring. She’s a sweet hearted fox.
