Rules for the Fluffy Fashionista....pt1

So the average American woman is a size 12/14.
Problem?I think NOT.
BUT when you insist of not embracing those curves(or that cheeseburger you ate),that is where the problem comes in.

So I give you a few fashion pointers to keep you on the red carpet....and not the sidewalk across the street.
(Please Note;some of you may be offended by this blog,but I say this all out of love)

1-SPANX are our friends
Men and even smaller men wear them now!They can be a little pricey,but surely worth the investment.
Sealing in your natural curves and not looking like a bag of rocks in your dress=PRICELESS


2-Purchase the correct bra for your garment!

Finding strapless bras that support Gods extra blessings can be hard that does NOT mean wearing a regular shirt bra with that cute strapless maxi dress is okay!Cacique strapless bras are from the Gods!The support,lift and are normally buy one get one 50%off!

3-While we are on the subject of undergarments.....
Learn your correct bra size and type.The muffin top thing you have going because you had to have that Victoria Secret bra is not fair to you(because you know you bought it two sizes TOO SMALL)or to us because every time you move your spilling out of your bra,blouse,etc.LEARN your measurements,if you can't the lovely ladies at your local Macy's,Lane Bryant,Nordstroms,etc will be glad to help you.

4-Denim shopping can be a nightmare.
Its time consuming,tiring,expensive,and most often annoying,because chances your size fluctuates depending on brand.As denim is becoming acceptable to wear for more than your Saturday morning errands its important to have the correct fit,color,and look.
Skinny jeans aren't everyone friend!
Find denim/brand that flatters your body,you will feel better.
Since I'm taller(and wasn't blessed with a J.Lo behind),I enjoy Z.Cavarrici and Old Navy jeans.

5.'My shoes are sick and I got the meaniest walk'
Being a larger girl is expensive,you have to spend more on clothes,shapewear,and your shoes are NO exception.Face the fact you get what you pay for,and those $9.97 Rainbow Pumps will NOT be your friend,they are painful,poorly made,and alot of times don't hold the skinny girls up!
Some of my favorite brands for Fluffy Girls with Footwear Fetishes are;
Torrid-Alot of them come in wider sizes,and their boots fit a wider calf.
Iron Fist-They come in wides and regulars.
UGG-They are pretty size friendly.

6-Leggings....
Many say us,Curvy Chics can't wear leggings,LIES!
But like most items there are rules!
a.Know the difference between liquid leggings,footless tights,or leggings and most importantly when to wear them.Footless tights look best under dresses that atleast hit the knee,liquid leggings are NOT for the workplace(Ive seen these attempted too many times),and leggings are normally the safest.
b-You get what you pay for!
This is true in just about all aspects of plus size fashion,but those $10 leggings from the 'skinny girl stores'will not due.Nothing is worse(or more uncomfortable)than too small leggings and that gross red line you will have at the end of the day for wearing them!

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness.

As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own.

As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues. 
Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work...
So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events, hell how t…

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story
On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my system ).
I…

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date.

The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days....

Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree?
So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education.

via GIPHY
I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit..........
I was scared.
Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying.
While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain...
I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like red wine),and started really proc…
