Confessions of a fluffkini

So of course swimsuit season is approaching super fast....

A rare photo of me in a swimsuit (Miami 2013)

Am I ready?

Of course not....
I mean yea,I have like suits waiting from a few years ago, one with tags still on it from Torrid (that can be purchased here) ,and another Torrid one that I am not sure if I will keep?

But yea, I am not prepared...Well not mentally at least.... This trend is based on more than just fun prints and colors... It's about body confidence and no longer hiding pieces and parts that are often frowned upon.... Am I ready to join the group of bold women who aren't hiding their stretch marks,bellys and curves behind bulky t-shirts and ugly skirted print suits??

For the past few seasons the plus size girls have been killing two piece suits from Monif C ,Gabri Fresh For Swimsuits For All , Torrid ,and Forever 21+ . I was super on edge about even thinking of wearing one of these....


So I got some courage, grabbed a friend, and carried myself to my local Torrid to try on and hopefully buy my first ever, 'Fluffkini' ...

 
....Yea so that really didn't work......I mean I did NOT look like that,lol
(There were NO fitting room selfies from this one!)

So I looked myself in the mirror and had to figure out exactly WHY I did not look like my favorite fluffy girls Tess HolidayChastity Garner , Gabi Fresh and Chante` .... Being the over thinker I am I got to the root of my disappointments...

Most of these ladies are shorter than me,so our stature is SUPER different... I am 5'9 1/2,
I have more a 'inverted triangle' shape,AND I hadn't really seen any of the fluffies that I mentioned wearing Torrid suits (this being one of the most important parts). So this sets me on a search AGAIN! But this time I know what I am looking for,and how to accessorize it so I can feel confident.....





Maybe I'll make a maxi skirt??

.....We will see, wish me luck!

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

The Normal Ones...

So of course every good blogger has these super glam photos posted on their blogs and IG. Like they look like they literally "woke up like this".... So if you know me, the glam thing you know that is a super stretch.. I'm normal at this point in life, I prefer leggings, Jordans and hoodie every chance I get... I have served my time in the club in 5-6 inch heels with the dresses short enough for my niece to wear. So when I sat down with my good friend, Chaz about doing photos for my blog I know I was probably every photographers nightmare. No, like seriously.... She asked about my ideas for my shoot, my visions, and I had nothing.. I mean I'm not a model? I like cookies too much....My 'sexy face' looks like I have something in my eye,lol So I did my own make up (scary, I know), Wore two of my favorite items; a denim shirt from Torrid (that my boobs are apparently too big for), and a tulle skirt from Zellie For She, And sat in front of the ca

Size and the standard of beauty ;The little girl in the pink jumper

So lately I've been battling with some deamons as far as my appearance..... As a bigger girl I have learned what can make or break you in terms of beauty..... Yet I still find it shocking when people find me attractive.I'm very shy,and often it hard to believe that people find me beautiful......I always resort back to moments of my childhood.... Picture this..... A chubby bubbly lite skin girl with braids and barettes in a pink and white shirt,deniem jumper,white socks,and pink/white nikes(eh I was a 90's kid) comes to her desk and sees a note.... "Dear Ashlei Will you be my girlfriend?" The little girl looks over to the most popular boy in class,who happens to be smiling at her from ear to ear.The youg girl sends a note back,"Yes"backwards "s" and all....Later on that day as the children file out of their lines for recess,the girls on one side stepping,playing house,and the boys on the other wresling,playing football,etc.....A yung ma
