Outfit of the Day: Jumpsuit

Plus Size Jumpsuit

Prior to this exact moment, have I worn a jumpsuit? No. In the name of Gloria Gaynor, no no no. And yet, I seek them out. I add them to my style boards and mentally pack them for events. Like when I'm on the back of a motor bike in Florence or making out with a guy who kinda looked like Ray Liotta if you squint your eyes a little in Vegas. … [Read More...]

Bohemian Summer

Tye Dye Maxi Twirl

I don't have a single summer memory of my childhood that happened indoors. We simply weren't allowed.

I … [Read More...]

While the photos weigh mere ounces, the collection itself contains hundreds of pounds gained and lost and … [Read More...]
