    Fairy Dust…

      So many times, the balance of being plus size as well as stylish has been challenged and even if the plus size community is winning so far with hashtags such as #effyourbeautystandards, #beautyincurves and so on, we still have a lot of work to do… Big girls have been taunted about wearing tutu/tulle skirts, its been claimed that we look amorphous in them, I completely disagree. Style is an expression of our definitions of beauty, strengths and vulnerabilities. Over time, I have noticed that the beauty of an ensemble isn’t just the exterior but heart, soul and mind deep.

Ever noticed that we always undermine unconventional beauty? It’s either we don’t get it or aren’t patient enough to understand it.

    Pink Dusk…

    Just yesterday, I was going to write this whole epistle about how perfect the weather is, tempting us to bare our shoulders and wear pastels.. Well, I TAKE IT BACK.. It is Winter all over again. You step out in New York and pray to God that you are neither over dressed nor under dressed… What a mess! At the rate Mother Nature is going, one should just be content enjoying warmer seasons telepathically. Anyways, the calendar says its Spring so Spring it is!! Where was I? ha!! Yes!! Pastels and off-shoulders… Pastel colors and off- shoulders are  perfect picks for Spring themed shenanigans. Furthermore, pairing this palette and style…
