Dear Kate & Me

June 12, 2014

Dear Kate, A few months ago I walked in the pouring rain through Chinatown and Little Italy to McNally-Jackson bookstore just before 6am, and without a stitch of make up or hair spray, I took off my pants and shopped in my underpants.  It was one of my most favorite days.  Brittany I can say […]

What I Wore: Summer Boho

May 23, 2014

Sometimes I feel like I was supposed to have been born an Olsen. Like the 4th fat one, who’s super excited for her sisters’ successes, but has no interest in Hollywood and instead stayed home to work at a bank or something. The boho gene is strong in me. I have fun dressing up in girly […]

A Couple Days in Chinatown

April 18, 2014

My book is due today, and writing it has been mentally consuming. I’m sorry I have been absent, but I wanted to take a second to update you on where I’ve been, because it’s been a pretty amazing month. First up, a peek at what I did while I was in New York City last […]

Fat Girls in Bikinis… We’re Just Like You!

March 7, 2014

We love the sun. We love the water. We sometimes forget to shave that one strip on the back of our legs. And we worry like hell about what the other women at the beach think of us, because the honest to God truth is, forget the men, we judge each other the hardest.  There […]

Happy Boobs

February 5, 2014

Two days ago we went to the Sing-Along version of Frozen, because we still have money left in our retirement account and haven’t yet fulfilled our apparent moral obligation to continuously bolster the box office success of this cartoon. I had just finished the reprise of For The First Time in Forever, I as Elsa […]

Glasses Party

February 3, 2014

I’m home alone probably only for one day*nervously checks weather* so I’m having a glasses dance party with the Scissor Sisters and a box of Rivet & Sway try-on glasses. No brainer. Glasses are from a free try-on box from my spec addiction, Rivet & Sway. Styles: Pantsuit, Snapshot, Ms. G, Disco Diva, Director’s Cut

Snowed In With Nothing But Coconut Love

January 29, 2014

We’ve basically been stuck in our house since January 1st, and aside from the uncontrollable sobbing and eye twitching, it’s been amazing. I’m like Sissy Spacek in Blast From The Past. There’s been constant rainbow looming, online shopping, minor home renovations, and it’s also cleared the way for  a couple “me” projects. Bought a new […]

What I Wore: DIY Vintage V-Neck Hoodie

January 23, 2014

I don’t know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering. Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I’ll own that. So, I have come up with a solution to […]

The Muse Project

January 14, 2014

When you are plus size and have self esteem issues, it’s not uncommon to hate January 1st. Once I eventually got past the dread of imminent resolution failure and looming hyper-inadequacy, I tabled New Years as nothing more than the passing of a calendar year. No more resolutions. No more unreachable standards. No more change. […]

What I Wore: Winter Coat

December 26, 2013

For a few winter seasons, I’ve been loving the long winter coat from afar. It looked so pretty, but so did my grandmother when she wore it. So, I put it in the pile of trends that would never come to be for me; harem pants, peplum tops, gladiator sandals… But you know what? After […]
