Two weeks ago, I flew out to Los Angeles and met up with some fellow fashion bloggers, Essie and Chantè. While we were there, we hosted an Instagram Takeover for Rebdolls and we shot this collaborative plus size spring fashion lookbook!

It’s three days into spring and it’s snowing outside. WHY. Chicago makes no sense. Thankfully, I was able to shoot my spring looks featuring the new Charlotte Russe plus size line while I was in LA last weekend. I love the look I shared last week, but this one is definitely my favorite.
I’m all about kimonos right now. I went from owning 0 to 10 in about two weeks. I want to wear more shorts this year, but I don’t like having to worry about my butt cheeks hanging out or anything. Kimono’s are the perfect solution. They are lightweight and make my outfits pop, plus they cover up my booty and upper thigh area.

Spring is here! But it’s still super cold outside, so to shoot my new outfit of the day featuring Charlotte Russe‘s plus line, I decided to fly on over to sunny California. I spent the weekend in Los Angeles aka paradise. I’ve flirted with the idea of moving there more than a few times and then I remember that living in paradise would make it a little less special. LA remains my favorite weekend retreat, though. Read More »

Valentine’s Day is this week. Are you ready? I always had super disappointing Valentine’s Days while in relationships, because expectations are THE WORST. This year, I’ve made some amazing plans.
First.. I’m gonna get my hurr did. Then maybe some Chipotle. Extra guac, on that ass. Perhaps a solo trip to the bookstore (aka heaven), followed by an hour of gluttony at my favorite chocolate shoppe. I’ll end the night with Hulu, some fiction, and laying on a bed of the most expensive roses I can find. Because, I deserve it. I never thought I would feel such satisfaction spending absurd amounts of money on flowers that will be dead in a few days. Good Lord, self love is an amazing thing.
Sarah doesn’t disappoint Sarah. Sarah knows exactly what Sarah likes. Sarah… will have the best Valentine’s Day of her life this year. It’s going down, my friend.
Now if you do have a loving partner, or at least some fellow single friends and you plan on hitting the town this February 14th… here are some beautiful outfits to consider.
And if you’re curious whether or not I was channeling a beautiful pageant winner with my bouquet… the answer is hell yes. These photos have Miss Plus Size Illinois written ALL over them.

Hello my pretty. Long time, no see. I know. I’ve been kind of MIA on my blog. I had some technical difficulties that took my site offline for a couple of days, and I didn’t want to risk adding any new content and then having my site down. My apologies. Anyway, I’m back baby. I’m bringing you a couple of looks featuring Monif C. These two dresses are really perfect for any date night or special event, but with Valentine’s Day around the corner… I thought they would be especially appropriate.
I’m wearing a size 2x in both dresses. They were both a little big on me, and I’ll be getting them both altered a bit shorter and a bit tighter near the waist. I’m a size 16/18 with more of a lean towards 16, these days. If you’re a true 18 or a true 2x (I’m between 1x/2x), these would probably fit you perfectly! And for reference, I am 5’4″ tall.

A few months back, I mentioned in a post that I was trying out Rogaine for Women in an effort to get thicker hair. I’ve been using the Rogaine foam for about 3 months now, and I’m happy to say that I’ve started to see a difference!
If you read my last post, you’ll know that I was looking for a hair regrowth system because there is a history of thinning hair in my family and I have a serious love affair with hair. I have very fine hair, so it’s always felt thin but in the last few years I noticed more fall out than usual. This is what drew me to Women’s Rogaine, in the first place.

Can we take two seconds to talk about how insanely cold it is in Chicago right now? My skin burns just walking outside. I can’t handle the midwest. This is insanity. Anyway, before the bitter cold hit us, I was able to squeeze out another lookbook for you! I teamed up with Missguided+ to showcase some outfits from their amazing plus size line.
Missguided is a UK company with so many beautiful styles in both straight and plus sizes. I would HIGHLY recommend you size down, if you decided to order any of these looks. I actually needed to size down twice in some of them. Even though the fit was a little big for me, I was still super impressed by the quality. It’s seriously some of the best quality clothing I own now.
I’ll definitely be picking up some more items from Missguided+ soon and you have to check them out. Some of the items shown below aren’t available online right now, but there are a ton of similar prints/styles that I’m sure you’d love just as much.

Christmas is in like two weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited. My kids are finally at that ripe age where they know enough to get SUPER EXCITED for Christmas, but they’re blissfully oblivious enough to not pout about not getting everything they asked for. It really is my favorite time of year. I love dressing up for holiday parties and getting my kid’s all dressed up too. Today, I’m sharing my favorite holiday hair tutorials for my kids, Nahla and Jaden.
They both have long, thick, and curly hair. It’s beautiful, and it can also be hard to tame. I’ve been using the Johnson’s No More Tangles system for their hair for awhile now.

I’m so excited to share this plus size holiday lookbook with you! I know some ladies can find it difficult to find special occasion outfits, especially if they only need to get dressed up a couple of times a year. I have a closet flooded with chiffon, lace, and ponte everything so I thought I would share a few of my favorite holiday looks.
This entire lookbook features Fashion To Figure, my favorite plus size retailer. I went to New York last month and shot a New Year’s lookbook with them which was just released today. I’m so excited to show you guys both lookbooks and I KNOW that you are going to find an outfit that is perfect for your special occasions this month.
I loved every single one of these looks, but I think the foil scuba dress was my absolute favorite. It was just perfect. Every now and again, I put on an article of clothing and feel like it was designed for my body. This scuba dress had my name written all over it.
