Fun with Modcloth

Hi Lovies,

In my 5 years of blogging, it has been such a great pleasure to see how much Plus Size Fashion has evolved. When I first started, I literally only shopped at Forever 21, Torrid and ASOS Curve. While there were a few other brands, like Lane Bryant but they had not caught up to being fashion forward yet.  Now 5 years later and I'm just awed by all the new PS brands that have popped up. It's just great when a brand just gets it and knows how important it is to be size inclusive. Honestly the world would be a better place if more brands did this and realized how important it is for body positivity. Being size inclusive isn't only about being able to walk into any store and finding your size but it's also empowering as well. One brand as of late that gets this is Modcloth, they've been around for a while and I've always loved their stuff. The company was founded by High School Sweethearts Susan Gregg Koger and Eric Koger back in 2002 and has grown so much since then. What I love about the Modcloth site is that there is no separation of straight sizes and plus sizes, everything is together. Everything is available in a full range of sizes  from XXS-4X, which I think is awesome. Not to mention that they have a mixture of straight and plus size models wearing their clothes, A+ to them!

728x90 | Spring Refresh 5.1

Hi Lovies,

The summer is all about having fun and enjoying yourself, whether it be going on vacation, enjoying a day at the beach or a long walk in the park. As for me, my wardrobe has to be fun as well for the summer. Bright colors, bold patterns and prints, anything that will put a smile on my face. Honestly it just makes my day better when my outfit is fun. I've already spoke about how I am obsessed with the fruit trend, well it hasn't stopped. This Fruit Salad Dress from City Chic via Gwynnie Bee just screams fun and playful. This cheerful print is so charming with all the adorable fruit print and vibrant colors. The fit and flare design is so flattering and the sweetheart neckline adds a little flirtiness to the dress. Not to mention how lightweight and easy to wear it is. If you're looking to make a statement this summer then you need this dress in your life. I think it's safe to say that this dress is definitely a #BorrownBuy.

June PopSugar Must Have Box

Hi Lovies,

If you've been following me for a while then you know I am a sucker for a monthly subscription box. I just love getting packages in the mail, it's like Christmas every month lol. My favorite are the beauty ones like The Ipsy Bag, Sephora Play Box and Boxy Charm (check out my video here). But I'm also my fashion ones as well like Gwynnie Bee and Dia & Co. So recently I added another one to my list and it's called the PopSugar Must Have Box. I've been a fan of PopSugar for years and I was super excited when I heard they came out with a subscription box. What I love about this box is that it has a little bit of everything in it, from fashion to beauty and even food! I also love that each month is a themed and the items in the box reflect that theme. Each item is thoughtfully hand-picked by the founder Lisa Sugar and their amazing editors, so you know everything is going to be awesome. The monthly subscription cost $39.95 and includes 7 full size items that is valued at over $100. I think that is a great deal and if you use the code SHOP5 you get $5 off you're first box!

No Pressure, No Commitment

Hi Lovies,

When it comes to clothing for the summer, I don't like to invest too much into it. Here in NYC the summer is only 2 months and is over in a flash. So I tend to buy clothes that are budget friendly since they spend a majority of their time in a bin for most of the year. This is when I really utilize my Gwynnie Bee subscription, because it gives me the option of having a fabulous wardrobe with no commitment. I've spoken about GB numerous times here on my blog and have been a subscriber since the beginning. If you've been living under a rock and don't know about Gwynnie Bee, they are a clothing rental subscription service for women sizes 10-32. Subscribers choose from different plans (and prices) depending on how many items they want to have out at a time.  Subscribers browse the collection, select items that they like, select their size (based on size charts for each brand) and put them in their closet. Once a minimum number of items are "closeted," new members are sent a box with their first items, depending on the plan they chose. You can keep the items for as long as you want without commitment or if you really like something, you have the option to buy it at a discounted price. Shipping is super quick and I love getting treats in the mail. When you're done with the items, just pop it into the prepaid envelope they provide you with and drop it into your nearest mailbox, it's as simple as that!

Lemon Drop

Hi Lovies,

In one of my older post I discussed how the fruit trend has taken the fashion scene by storm. You can find clothing adorned with different fruit prints which I am all about. If it has fruit on it them I'm buying it. Strangely enough the fruit that I've seen the most lately is the Lemon. Seems like the lemon is the "It" fruit for the season, like this dress I wore via Gwynnie Bee. Today I'm bringing you lemon goodness via Ashley Stewart with this gorgeous Lemon Print Cold Shoulder Dress (currently 50% off!). I first saw this dress on my fellow blogger Nazira in the black version and immediately ran to the website to buy it. Besides the charming lemon print, I fell in love with the frilly cold shoulder design and high collar neckline. The chiffon overlay makes this dress extremely fun and feminine while still remaining sophisticated. This is definitely a dress for the season that you can wear for any occasion.
