6 Plus Size Motorcycle Jackets (Genuine & Faux Leather Options!)


A motorcycle jacket is one of my favorite Fall transition pieces.

A biker jacket can be versatile; throw it on over a pair of jeans, a mini dress or a tutu. I always have fun wearing jackets like this because it adds an edgy feel to my mostly soft/girly style. Faux/Genuine leather jackets are also layerable (is that even a word? lol) one of my favorite looks is a moto jacket with a fur vest over it because it’s “hard” and “soft” at the same time.

Today I’ve got seven plus size moto jackets in a variety of styles, prices and colors. As always I’ve got faux options for my animal friendly girls too, check them out below!

I’ve been chatting with some of my plus size blogger friends about cape blazers and construction seems to be the key to making this look work. Below are a few cape blazer options. I wanted the cape to lay properly on my shoulders and not fly/slide back all the time, so I got this one in a size larger. Would you rock this look?

Loc Hairstyle Tutorial: Marley Bun on Short Sisterlocks


Can you believe I’ve had my sisterlocks for a year now?

They’re coming in really well and it’s the best decision I’ve made for my hair, I have ZERO regrets. That being said, I do prefer myself with longer hair, so I am oh-so patiently waiting to have chin-length, shoulder-length and ultimately bra-strap length sisterlocks. Until then, I’m enjoying what I have with different styles. Now that my short locs can fit into a mini-ponytail, I’ve been doing some up-do’s with added hair.

Squeem Shapewear Review + Giveaway!


I put shape wear in the same category as false eyelashes and hair extensions; they’re all fun accessories that can amp up my look for a night and when I take them off, I should still be happy with who I am.

I can appreciate what shape-wear can do for my outfits, but I also love my “sweat pants, hair tied, chilling with no makeup on…” body too! For more on celebrating all body shapes, check out an an article I wrote for Bustle about how we shouldn’t value the hourglass figure above others.

That being said, it’s fun to channel my inner va-va-va-voom from time to time, so I’m going to try on some waist cinchers from Squeem on camera so that we can all see how they work. I’ve also got five to give away (enter to win below)!

The Summer I Decided To Stop Hating My Body


One summer day, I spent 40 minutes struggling to get dressed. It took me one minute to choose the perfect maxi dress, and 39 minutes to find a cardigan that would cover my arms without making me melt in the summer heat. Turns out, there is no such thing.

Sitting on the subway, I caught a reflection of myself in the window. Everyone around me was wearing shorts, tanks, and sundresses, and there I was looking like I was waiting for snow to fall.

I pushed the sleeves of my cardigan up to my elbows for some relief, and as I moved my arms, I noticed something. Even though I was wearing a stifling hot cardigan to cover up my arm fat, I could still see my “bat wings” jiggle inside the fabric. Growing up as a big girl, I’ve tried to cover my body with everything from baggy clothes to tight shapewear, and then there’s the plus-size cardigan trick.

I realized that even if I bought a short-sleeved shrug of some sort, my arm fat disguises weren’t fooling anyone. They might be covered in fabric, but every time I moved, my arms were waving “hellooooo!” I was trying to hide something that is impossible to conceal. And, my cardigan-come-comfort-blanket was making me hot and uncomfortable.

I would like to say that in that very moment I stripped off my cardigan and liberated myself from the chains of cardigans and shrugs, but it wasn’t that easy. Even though I considered going sleeveless and letting my arms flap in the wind, I still had stretch marks to consider. I had been hiding those since the 7th grade! My tangled web of body image issues needed to be unraveled slowly. Was the world ready for my arm jelly? Even worse, was I prepared to show my stretch marks in all their striped glory?

Over time, I’ve realized that no matter how many crochet “summer sweaters” and flowy tops I buy, the truth is: You can’t hide the fat. I’m a big girl with big arms and stretch marks. I can waste 39 minutes every morning trying to shield the world from the horror of my arms, or I can throw on the cute summer dress in one minute and save those 39 minutes for something more productive.

It took me about a year to get comfy with sleeveless clothes, but since then, I’ve felt pretty liberated. I no longer ruin beautifully made formal dresses with intrusive shawls and boxy taffeta shrugs. I wear tank tops to the gym. And, I even went sleeveless on a first date once — a huge accomplishment for me.

Of course, I still do my favorite fitness workouts that strengthen my arms. But, even if I never have Michelle Obama guns, I’ve liberated myself by refusing to hide my body.

Summer is here. Will you be going sleeveless?


Plus Size Fashion: Bright Colors & Bare Arms



I’ve come a long way from being the plus size teen who wore sweatshirts in the middle of summer in order to hide her body. Last year, I made strides to become the plus size woman who doesn’t hide behind cardigans (if you’re obsessed with cardigans, click here).

The summer is my favorite time to celebrate my body.  Bright colors, showing my arms, preventing inner thigh chub rub… these are all ways that all the ways I’ve learned to embrace myself right now.

This outfit kind of captures all of that for me… outfit details are below.

Summer isn’t over yet, so if you’ve been wanting to show a little more skin but you’re nervous I encourage you to just go for it. I promise, it feels amazing.
