Mini Update

Just popping in to let you know I'm still alive :P! I've been busy trying to work on school projects, get my schedule for after the holidays figured out, study, get involved with the Deaf Community, etc. It's all been pretty fun, actually! I found a bunch of things I bought for the shop a long time ago, so I'll be posting them in handfuls starting today :D. It's almost Christmas break at school, and I can't wait to focus more on putting together outfits! I'll try to come up with some fun posts in the meantime :) If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Click to visit the shop :)!

Flowerchild Vintage - Columbus, OH

Sorry, I've been too cold/poor/rushed to dress well lately (bad excuses, I know!). But I ventured down to Columbus this past week for the DEAFair at the Expo Center and stopped by a lovely little shop in Short North I thought you guys might be interested in :)

Faith 21 Contest

This has actually been mentioned on another blog already, but I just HAD to re-post and I never do that: It is that wonderful! Faith 21, the plus size branch of Forever 21, is hosting what they're calling a "Most Stylish Gal Search." First prize includes a trip for two to Los Angeles for a photo shoot, and a $500 shopping spree - crazy! Not to mention there is also going to be 2nd and 3rd places. I hope some of you guys enter :D! How cool would it be to know the winner? Just remember you have to be wearing an item from Faith 21.

I've never really been a competitive soul, but I thought, "hey! I'm wearing a Faith 21 product in one of my recent outfit shots...why not!?" Remember? So yep, I entered! I'm not sure exactly how it works yet but I'll keep you updated! I DO know that we should know the winner around December 14th. Wish me luck!?!

Get more info here.

P.S. Just to let you know, they're extending their sizes to 3X - hurray! :)

Winner winner, chicken dinner!

The winner of the Yura Pocky Lover giveaway is comment #18 -- the lovely Gabi! I will be e-mailing you shortly to claim your prize, miss!

Thanks everyone for participating! Now, what should I give away next :)?

Fat Love Friday #7 - Always Late!

First up is J of Fatshionable, a Californian blogger on her way to becoming a lawyer. What a classy gal! Her style is absolutely polished and classic. One of her trademarks is mixing the super feminine with tougher pieces, like ruffles and leather, which I LOVE. She seems to invest in high quality items, so seeing her outfits (especially the shoes!) are the things of my shopping fantasies!

She really knows how to flatter her figure, too! Even if you aren't plus-sized, every girl has some feature that isn't the easiest to dress. But her taste and eye for shapes and styles is really just impeccable. I love that she doesn't use too many prints, and instead opts for nice fabrics and texture details. Even her makeup is amazing, she always looks so natural and fresh! And seriously, I want every single pair of shoes she owns! :)

Next is someone you could might call a fat fashion super hero! Gabi of Young, Fat, and Fabulous was one of the first plus size blogs I ever encountered, so she's really had a hand in my blog as far as the confidence it takes to put your outfit photos out there. She's got a great edge to her personal style, which lately is something I've been really inspired by, too! She always adds great rock 'n' roll vibes to her outfits, so they're always current and fashion-forward. I love that she always tries out recent trends, and in fact, she always interprets them so well, I don't think I could ever look back on her photos and find them dated!

She's also very adventerous with layers and accessories too, which I know a lot of people find difficult. Not to mention her hair styles! She's done so many drastic things, but I really love each and every one, I can't even pick a favorite!

Recent finds & a possible outfit . . .

I thrifted a Liz Claiborne plum knit 2 piece set yesterday (I ditched the skirt, it was kind of awful) intending to sell it, but tried it on for kicks. And now I think I'm keeping it...whoops! But now I'm having trouble styling it. Alright now be honest with me - too '80s call girl?

Plum sweater dress with gold studs: Thrifted
Extra long black leggings: Target
Black suede shoes: Deena & Ozzy for Urban Outfitters

And here are a couple things I've gotten lately but haven't figured out how to style yet, either. Feel free to make suggestions on what to wear this stuff with, I'm having a "fashion block" or something I guess :P!

Sparkly knit cropped sweater from Forever21.

Velvet floral vest, thrifted.
