This weekend I drove to Atlanta to attend The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo. I don’t know if you follow me on Snapchat @tfasblog, but all of my Atlanta adventures were documented on the app. I had a really good time at Marie’s Denee’s event even though my day got off to a very rocky start.
I wish I was near Atlanta. Plus size store Ashley Stewart is having a #LOVEYOURCURVES tour featuring Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista and more special guests. They are also giving away two scholarships. Great right? Yea it is. You better get yourself together, call your friends and head out to Ashley Stewart’s #LOVEYOURCURVES tour.
I have been featured on Make Me Over Eb and The Curvy Fashionista.
A few weeks ago I was offered a chance to review some Ugg-like boots by a company called Whooga. Whooga is an Australian company that uses Australian Merino fleece. The boots are made and shipped from China. They did give me a free pair of boots, but as you all know, that doesn’t affect my review.
I love my boots. Unlike my other UGG Australia boots that I own, I don’t have to go up a size because the Whooga boots fit tight on my feet and are true to size. The Merino fleece is so soft and warm. Just like Uggs, these boots keep your feet warm even when the temperature hits 30 below. The shoes look just like my Ugg boots, except they have a Whooga tag on the back.
The only problem I had with them was the fact that the box had been a little bent up from shipping. When I opened my box, the shoes were a little rumpled. Whooga sent the shoes with stuffing and cardboard in them, so that helped a lot. Once I took the boots out of the box and let them stand on their own, they fluffed out. Now they look great.
Whooga boots come in all different sizes, heights, textures, and colors for kids and adults.
Would I recommend this company as an Ugg alternative…Yes!
Don’t forget to shop The Fat and Skinny Shop for sizes 8-20, L-3X!
I want to thank 12+ UK Model Management for giving me the heads up on this. Two of their models, Hayley Morley & Laura Catteral, will be in the June issue of French Marie Claire. These pictures are so gorgeous. Everyone looks so beautiful. I can’t describe it. I really hope American magazines start doing things like this. Most of the magazines that have featured plus size models have been foreign magazines. Marie Denee from The Curvy Fashionista has a awesome article on this.
Before I get into the post someone asked me if I design and if I knew of any plus size designers. Well I just started dabbling in design this year. My flats aren’t great, but I try to practice from time to time. You can view some of my flats here. As far as plus size designers are concerned, Marie Denee at The Curvy Fashionista has a really good, no GREAT post on the plus size industry that I think everyone should read, including straight sized people. It breaks the industry down into categories and then list the designers and stores that fit under that category. I couldn’t write a better article or explanation, so check it out here.
Soooooo I found this website called PS I Made You a while ago, and it is TRESMAZING! It seems like they have great DIYs that totally make sense to someone like me who loves crafts but usually screws them up. This necklace would make a great Christmas present for someone. I can’t wait to try it out.
From PS I Made You:
The Curvy Fashionista has the scoop on the May issue of Australia’s Harper’s Bazaar. The mag just so happens to have an editorial with one of my favorite plus sized models, Crystal Renn. I remember the first time I saw her. It made me feel like she’s big, I’m big, and we are both beautiful. Haters are gonna hate. If she can be confident in her body and herself, then so can I. To see the rest of the photos, go to The Curvy Fashionista or buy a copy of the new Australian Harper’s Bazaar.
