Woah. I'm finally home for a tiny bit after 2 whirlwind weeks in New York for Full Figured Fashion Week (which was on the heels of Camp Throwback) and then Savannah for FitBloggin.' I am so behind on everything, but am filled with gratitude for these experiences and the people I've been able to build genuine relationships with through blogging. I still plan on doing another FFFWeek event recap, but I wanted to go ahead and share some thoughts Continue Reading

Full Figured Fashion Week, Part 1 Recap

Kelly, Meghan, and Emmie

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some fun photos last week while I was in New York City for Full Figured Fashion Week (FFFWeek). This was the final year for the event, and considering that every previous year I sat around social media with FOMO, I figured it was my last chance to get there and experience it!

I love traveling, but it's something that causes a lot of anxiety as I worry about if I'll Continue Reading

Not that it's bad, it just didn't look how I had imagined it or seen it in the mirror. I was excited when this dress came to Gwynnie Bee because I had wanted to try out some items from ABS by Allen Schwartz - a brand that sold at finer retailers such as Nordstrom for price points that I normally don't buy. The quality of this Continue Reading

OOTD: Newspaper Style

IMG_20140614_132804

Monday, the fashion reporter at the Lexington Herald-Leader, my local newspaper, came out to my house with a photographer to take some photos. The interview and photos are now online here, and were in Saturday's newspaper! Very fun. I was stressing out about what to wear, because who wants to be in the newspaper in a bad outfit?! On a tangent, I'm also stressing out about what to pack for Full Figured Fashion Week next week. How do you Continue Reading
