Fall Boot Guide

It is finally boot season, and I’ve already added a few beauties to my collection.

There are three boot styles I like to keep in rotation: ankle booties, knee high boots and over-the-knee boots.

If you’ve got thick solid legs like I do, you may need a little extra room in the calf area… I’ve got you covered!

My Strapless Bra & Shapewear Guide

I went from a size 28 to 18 and now my tummy rolls and back fat are a bit… um… UNRULY. 

I keep my confidence up with foundation garments…

Some might ask if foundation garments are “body positive”. That’s a decision you have to make for yourself.

Walking into a meeting feeling self conscious about my back fat pulls my focus away from work. If sliding on some Shapewear keeps my mind on building a better future for plus size women, as I build theCURVYcon then it’s a body positive decision for me.

Here is my Guide to Flawless Shapewear & Strapless Bras:

From my Corporate Job to THIS

Five years ago, I had a corporate job… today I’m a model and ambassador for LOFT!

I can’t believe I’m saying “I’m a model” because I never ever saw myself as a model.

I never thought I was good enough (or pretty enough) to be a model.

Instead of dreaming of becoming a model, I dreamed about building my self confidence. As my confidence has grown over the past 10 years, opportunities that I couldn’t have dreamed of (like modeling) are coming my way.

This is very exciting to me because I now know that if it can happen for me, it can happen for anyone… including you.

Don’t quit your daydream, doll! 

Style Guide: This Plus Size Summer Dress is Perfect

It’s no secret that dresses are my thing.  They’re feminine, easily dressed up or down and if I’m rushing in the morning, I love making one decision on what to wear in the morning instead of mixing and matching tops and bottoms. I don’t mind denim in the summer, but there’s something so special about floating around in a summer dress. After a long weekend in the Hamptons (did you catch my friends doing an EPIC runway show around the pool on my instagram stories? lol) I came back to NYC still wanting to squeeze a little bit more out of my long weekend. I bought a bunch of plus size summer essentials from Lane Bryant, including this adorable fit…

I Surprised my Mom with This

I was born and raised in California, but I live 3,000 miles away in New York City.I’m close to my family and speak to them almost every day, but I still miss being around them.One of my goals is to be able to visit my family more than once or twice a year. I want to be around more for special occasions and to just hang out with the people I love the most.I haven’t flown home for Mother’s Day in YEARS, but this weekend I’m making it happen.

Plus Size Summer Outfit: White Denim Skirt

I know my confidence is growing when this happens:Warm weather comes… and I put away my sweaters.For many years, I wore hoodies and sweaters all year round in an effort to hide my body. If you happened to see a girl walking around in the blazing heat on the 4th of July, wearing a maxi dress and a long sleeve cardigan… that was me. My bad.But each summer, the more my self confidence grew, the easier it became to get dressed. I learned to show my arms, my legs and eventually wear a bikini at the beach!
