Just Another Manic Monday...

Wish it were a...17 Sundays!

I'm still crushing on 17 Sundays out of Australia.  Here's what I've got my eye on right now...

I love the simplicity of this can be casual or dressed up depending on how you style it but it's more elevated than a basic t-shirt.
$59.90 AUD

I'm obsessed with bright being in the top of the ranks!  And I love that they're styled with neon pumps...except now I also want these shoes!

$99.99 AUD
Available Here

This top is fun...perfect for a weekend shopping trip or a casual day when you want to look good but don't want to put on something too fussy!

Available Here

I know its basic...but its neon!  I'm also loving the length and the center seam...casual chic when styled right!

I'm always on the hunt for great shorts, and chambray is tough to find in women's plus.  These would be amazing vacation shorts...cute and comfortable!

For those of you shopping in the US you can now get select items at Madison Plus...or shop online at  And be sure to look out for 17 Sundays this June showing at Full Figure Fashion Week!

Bust Out!

In my opinion there are a few things in life a woman needs...yes needs.

1. A great lip gloss or lipstick.
2. Mascara.
3. And an amazing bra!

Black Smooth Demi Bra

A shot from "I am Torrid" Blogging Event

At the beginning of the month I had the honor of attending a blogging event at Torrid Headquarters.  Pure honesty here people...when the topic of bras came up I was skeptical...I had never even entertained the idea of buying a bra from Torrid...but they talked up this bra that we were told we'd get to try on and I figured I'd go in with an open mind...well as open as it could be.  Trying on and finding a new bra sucks in my's one of the most important things I put on everyday and I've never really been excited about my options as a plus size woman.  So...when I had it on and didn't hate the way if felt I looked down to my amazing my boobs looked!  Ha!  My current bra was doing its job just fine...but this just gave that extra oomph!  

Since then I've been checking Torrid's site almost daily to see when I could finally get my hands on one...and now I can!  And so can you!  Your mission...if you chose to except out and try on some Torrid bras...I love the Demi...I'd love to hear what you fall in love with!

Happy Shopping!

We all have them for various reasons...but at what point do we let them affect our lives?  

Size hang-ups are big for girls..."I'm a ___ size and I'm not going up just because this or that runs small."...but if you liked it enough to try it on who cares if your a XXL instead of a L.  I know it hurts for a second or longer...and it doesn't always make sense..."I"m always a L in this Brand!" but do you really want to miss out on that cute top or those amazing jeans?  I don't!

Women's Plus Skinny Zip-Chinos

I recently bought these pants from Old Navy Women's Plus...they're only available online...and I'm always a 20 these days so that's what I ordered.  When they arrived in the mail they fit everywhere except in the waist...but they were buttery soft...a true skinny and I loved them.  So I swallowed my pride and exchanged them for a 22.  No one would ever know...I do my laundry and the label is on the inside.  

It would be nice to get some consistency when it comes to sizing but I know the process...I'm a Merchandise Product Development Grad of FIDM LA...jeans/pants are the hardest fits to get just right.    

I guess what I'm saying is...if you LOVE it and you can find a size that fits you...just get it!  You can cut the size tag out if it helps!
