Dream the Impossible Dream. Shorts.

Shorts

There comes a point in your life when you feel comfortable with your thighs rubbing together in hot, public places. I am not at that exit yet. I’m on the exit ramp, off to the side, where the truckers park to sleep. I’m not talking about mentally comfortable. In fact, after 20 hours in a […]

Halloween 2013

Daria

La la laaaa la la.  We didn’t have our big Halloween bash this year. I’ve been injured and in a foul mood about it, plus we’re leaving for Florida tomorrow, so things just got a little too busy to properly plan a soiree. Unfortunately, that also means that I didn’t have anywhere to don a […]

If These Spanx Could Talk

Because what else do I have to do at 6am? Certainly not body slam three kids into the bed so […]

This week we have the fabulous Ritzy, stylist from eyeglass powerhouse Rivet & Sway, on hand with a panel of fellow fashion addicts to talk […]

The Mini Skirt

Plus Size Mini Skirt

Mindy Kaling does this thing I love, get ready, because it’s groundbreaking… She wears mini skirts and she tucks her shirt in. Which is, in chubby Brittanyland, a mind blowing concept. I mean, my grandma always told me to tuck my shirt in, but she was old and didn’t know who Shanice was at the […]
