A Guide To A Stylish Plus Size Life

Stripes Galore...

Dress-Gap(sold out online), Shoes-ShoeDazzle, Sunglasses-Prada,




If you read my blog, follow me on any of my social media channels you know how much I love stripes. But I am always shocked by how many people consider them unflattering, hard to carry off or something that they stay away from completely. Stripes to me add polish, glam and sophistication to an outfit. I simply cannot get enough.  If you are afraid of stripes start slow, perhaps with one piece that doesn’t completely scare you, and build from there. You can try a shirt, pants, skirt, a dress and go for it! Think of it as testing the water before you jump into the pool.

I know that I mostly preaching to the choir but this Monday I challenge my readers to try one fashion thing that scares them! Even if you do it in the privacy of your own home and leave a message to let me know what you did and how you felt!

Thanks for reading! I look forward to hearing from some of you!!!
