Boom! Hot Looks for Your 4th of July

Hot dogs, ice-cold watermelon, lounging by the lake or the pool, fireworks and celebrating our independence to be who we are, how we are, and wear what makes us feel great -- these are just a few of the best things about the 4th of July.  There have been some mighty big changes in the past week, and some amazing reasons to celebrate the freedoms we have as Americans.  There is something about sporting red, white and blue to celebrate our country that just cannot be beat.

When we wear the colors of our flag, we celebrate the principles upon which our great nation was founded; white signifies purity and innocence- the hope of a new nation that holds fast to the belief that all are equal, and that each person is given the opportunity to work towards becoming the best they can be, with no limits on achievement or potential. Red is for our hardiness & valor, as we remember the hard work that it takes to achieve our goals, and remember the blood spilled by the men and women who fought to create and preserve our great nation and its freedoms. Finally, blue signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice, reminding us all to keep asking those hard questions of ourselves and our elected officials, to stand fast through difficult times, and that every American has the opportunity and right to fair treatment under the law.

We refer to ourselves as curvy women, a women of size,  big beautiful women, full figured, plus sized, queen, thick, or simply as girls “who ain’t no size 2” (gotta give that love Meghan Trainor!). Whichever way you choose to identify yourself, remember to celebrate your fashion independence, wherein no person can dictate that which you wear and feel beautiful based upon your size -- except you!

Have a fabulous, fun, and fierce 4th of July!

Make it a Red-Hot Summer!

Well, the solstice has come and gone, and we are now officially in summer! Out here in Las Vegas, that’s not much of a surprise, what with the record-breaking temperatures and winds that feel like a giant hair dryer has been turned on high. While at times we are tempted to complain about the temperatures, at the end of the day, we just all have to remind ourselves that you don’t ever have to shovel sunshine.

There is something about summer that makes us all feel a little stronger and pushes us to show that fierce side. Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it has something to do with that little bit of a golden glow we develop -- even through the SPF 70, or maybe it just has something to do with the longer days and feeling like we seem to be able to get more done.   

Whatever the reason, summertime is one of those times of the year where we dress a little more powerfully, and there's no color quite as powerful and fiery as red. While winter calls for layers and bundles, summer encourages us to show off our playful side, our strong side, and a little bit of skin. Nothing says, “Strong woman” more than shades of red, mixed and matched in perfect harmony and accented by great red or neutral heels. Styles like these will have you looking fabulous and ready for anything, wherever your adventures may take you this summer.

Ready to Rock: 12 Looks for Festival Season

I lived for about 13 years in Columbus, Ohio, and since 1972, June has meant that it’s time for ComFest. This long weekend of music, food, poetry and art meant long days dancing around and lounging in the grass with friends while enjoying new offerings from food vendors and brewhouses- and a new, giant pink mug every year.  The vendors and the amazing clothing were always one of my favorite parts of Comfest; since it was usually one of the first sweltering weekends of summer, the goal was to look good, but be as comfortable as possible. 

That combination of fashion purposes is one of my favorite things about festival clothing. Light, breathable fabrics come together with eye-catching patterns and colors to keep your clothing as bright as your mood. The beauty of most festivals is the amazing spirit of community- from events like ComFest to Coachella; Life is Beautiful to Burning Man, the underlying festival spirit the celebration of community in all of its forms.

The overwhelming air of acceptance at festivals is a balm to the soul- no matter who you are, what you’re wearing, how you’re shaped or what you look like, the music, the speakers, the celebration and the atmosphere are the primary focus, and the beauty inside everyone is brought out.

Lucky You: Great Looks to Make Them Green with Envy

St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of Ireland’s unique history and culture celebrated by both the Irish (and those who wish they were!) all over the world. Revelers as far back as the 1680s believed that wearing green clothing made one invisible to leprechauns and fairy creatures, and thus they would be saved from the painful pinches these creatures would bestow on those they could see. In later years, revelers took it upon themselves to pinch those not wearing green, just in case there were no leprechauns around to do it!

These days, we celebrate being Irish (or wanting to be Irish) with green beer, good whiskey, parades, and if we’re really lucky, attending a good cèilidh where we can do all of the above while dancing and drumming the night away. Of course, you’ll want to have an amazing green outfit and gorgeous green accessories to keep those pinches away. Why not look fabulous while hiding from mischievous leprechauns!

I’ve gathered a few great pieces this week to hide you from the wee folk and maybe make a few Irish eyes smile upon ye. Here’s to an amazing and fun St. Patrick’s Day for all! Enjoy amazing company, great food and maybe even some good Irish whiskey. Sláinte!

Bringing It In Like a Lion(ess): 10 Plus Size Picks for Spring Transition

In spite of snow currently covering 92% of the continental US (keep laughing, Hawaii, we’re still working on that giant catapult to throw a snowball at you guys), spring is moving closer and closer every day.  When it's jacket weather in the morning and too hot for a jacket by afternoon, what’s a fashionable curvy girl to do? 

This week, I’ve put together a few options that can save your sanity and your style. First off, layering is key. Building a wardrobe with beautiful "shoulder-season" pieces is a good wardrobe solution, keeping us warm but reminding us that spring is just around the corner.

BB Dakota’s fabulous Lucy jacket gives us the extra layer we need to keep the chill away, while the fabulous floral print is a subtle reminder that warmer weather is on the way. A fabulous Rachel Pally Plus dress that will transition to spring and into summer gets extra distance when paired with a great cardigan now, and a fabulous straw hat later.

Softer, more grown-up pastels keep us in a spring mindset. Try a stylish take on the sweatshirt DKNY Jeans to bring in soft color. Casual and practical outwear by Columbia will keep you warm and dry while providing a soft pop of color on the dreariest of spring days. Last but not least, great boyfriend jeans from NYDJ and more remind us spring is coming while still keeping us warm and fairly covered up.

Keep strong, everyone; spring is only 17 days away and we spring forward this weekend, so we’ll see more and more of that fabulous sunshine!

9 Fine Pieces to Keep You Comfy 'N Cozy

The only thing I like better than air conditioning on an August day in Las Vegas is cuddling up in front a fire on a blustery day with my dogs,Luke and Leia, a good book, and a cup of Mexican hot chocolate (if you’ve never had it, find some; chocolate + cayenne pepper= AMAZING).

What makes a day like that even better? Comfortable, amazingly beautiful clothes that fit and flatter. This time of the year, we all find ourselves running here and there and everywhere- dropping off items at a charity, helping friends haul in a tree, baking hundreds of cookies, helping nieces and nephews and little cousins choose and wrap gifts for their parents. Our time is spent in such a hustle and bustle--which means we want two things above all:

  1. To look damn good for every situation, because we never know when we’re going to run into a good-looking elf.
  2. To be as comfortable as possible.

This week, I’ve gathered a group of items that do both. I will HIGHLY recommend adding a pair of AMAZING Cobb Hill boots to any of these to keep your feet looking great and feeling fabulous.

May you all have a great Thanksgiving, and we’ll see some of you out on the road.
