Chelsea McGowan: Picture Perfect Curves

May 3, 2013

Hey you, curvy girl over there, did you know you can be fashionable and have a blast doing it? I think sometimes we forget that, because for so long, the style choices just weren’t there for us. And even as more and more options open up, it’s admittedly a bit of a learning curve trying […]

The Responsibility Between Us

May 1, 2013

You Be The Judge

April 23, 2013

I have 42 dresses clawing for space in my closet these days (coincidentally, that’s one for every year of my life). People have made assumptions about what that means, but the simple truth is that I own 42 dresses because that’s how many I’ve found that fit me. Just like those girls (and by those […]
