In this new collection AS showcases plus size intimates that are perfect for the curvaceous woman who’s not afraid to strut her stuff; and I am flattered that I was asked to be a part of such an empowering campaign! It was only right that Circa 88 teamed with Ashley Stewart again for such a powerhouse collection. After all Circa 88 is 100 percent body positive and believes every woman of every size is wonderfully made and deserves to feel comfortable in her skin!

Christmas is next week … and while you may be making your list and checking it twice, it’s almost time to wrap up gift-giving season. Have you gotten everyone taken care of on your list? Well It may be hard to shop for your favorite plus size fashionista, but I think I’ve got you covered!
Follow these winter plus size trends and you will definitely have a happy plush gal near your Christmas tree!
VELVET – It’s no surprise that velvet has made a comeback; but what’s surprising is the bold colors that has replaced boring velvet. Pick your favorite girl up a shape revealing and body conscious velvet dress… it’s perfect for this holiday season!
SWING DRESS – Not just any kind of swing dress… a red one! Make sure your plus size girl stands out in a holiday red. She will definitely be the talk of the party.
WIDE CALF BOOTS – Every fashion girl wants knee boots, even those with chunky legs! Here’s a secret … search for boots with a “stretchy” back, or shop at some of my favorite plus size stores for wide calf boots: Forever 21, Torrid, Ashley Stewart and even DSW!
LEATHER – While leather goods have always been a winter essential, it’s been taken an entirely differently level! Instead of giving your typical leather jacket or handbag … opt out for a fierce ensemble piece like a leather skater skirt, dress or pants!
Just because you’re fat doesn’t mean you can’t be fabulous! Happy Holidays my fellow curvy girls!
I’m certainly the girl who opts out for cute flats instead of heels from time-to-time. This look was perfect for a last minute happy hour outing just before sunset and nightlife. Love how easy these golden oxfords were; quick to slip on and the dark lip turned up the drama.

So if you’re anything like me, you fell into the “MAC is the best” trap a long time ago. There was one point in which I would buy a few MAC lipsticks (16 bucks a pop) a week because I didn’t believe anything else would compare… but that got old quick! Since those naive days I fell in love with cheaper brands like Wet N Wild, NYX, and anything else I stumbled across that was just as pigmented. Here are a few of my favorite DUPES this fall… and honestly I prefer Revlon’s Shameless and Wet N Wild’s Cherry bomb over MAC’s expensive junk! They are much more pigmented to me.
Here are a few pics of me wearing the lipsticks that I love! Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb (I wore it lightly on top of a nude liner to make it softer)MAC’s Velvet Teddy (Still my fave … I can’t give into the Revlon dupe)I searched high and low for Heroine… and Then a few weeks later I fell in love with Shameless by Revlon.
Do you have any fall favorites that I missed? These are just a few, I have tons of lipsticks! Share some of your favorite dupes with me.
