I started this blog in March 2005 after graduating college with an interest in art&fashion journalism. Since I didn’t have experience and couldn’t land an entry level job or internship, I decided blogging would be a great platform to show my writing skills and love for art&fashion. I knew first-hand the lack of resources for younger, trendier women sizes 14 and up, so I decided to fill the void. Over time, it has transformed into a personal style blog, where I share my art&fashion advice (which mostly consists of “ignore art&fashion rules!”) and outfits that I hope inspire others to take risks and have fun with clothing regardless of their size. I pretty much disagree with most mainstream art&fashion ideas and reject the notion of “dressing for your body type.”


This little old blog that started as a hobby has since become my full time job. That means I’m lucky enough to make money from doing what I love!

  • I partner with brands that I like, and am paid to collaborate with them on projects which I blog about here. These can be short term (eg 1-2 posts), long term (eg 6 months) or anything in between. I always announce in a blog post when I will be partnering with a brand.
  • I receive gifted products from time to time that I wear/feature here. I keep my integrity by only posting things I truly like (I turn down the majority of opportunities/items offered because they aren’t in line with my blog or personal style). I always note in a post if something was received courtesy of a brand.
  • I use affiliate links for products I love, which means I make a small percentage of a linked product if you choose to purchase it.
    -All opinions on this blog are my own. Although I work with brands, I never allow them any control over the written content of posts.
