Since I am vacationing in Palm Springs, California, I wanted to show a look which complimented the location.  Palm Springs is a touristy town situated in the middle of the desert and is about two hours away from Los Angeles.  It has become the destination where the wealthy or the cultured go to escape, relax, and whine down so the dress code is pretty laid back.

Kimono Love

My love for fashion goes way back, before there was this thing called fashion blogging or shows like Project Runway that made it in vogue to want a career in fashion. A dear friend recently reminded me of this love affair when she text me a picture of one of my first sketches which I sent her while in design school years ago.  The fact that she still has the sketch & the original envelope, AMAZING!

Usually, my shorts hit me somewhere around the knee region and each summer, my daughter starts her normal ritual of pushing me to go shorter.  Up until now, I never felt comfortable showing too much leg :) but if I can post myself in a bathing suit for the universe to see, then mid length shorts, no problem.

What "Curvy" Means To Us

 The word curvy means different things to different people even within the online plus size blogging community. So, when Joi from InmyJoi approached me about taking part in this collaborative post, I considered it a great opportunity to not only share my opinion, but to hear the views of my fellow plus size bloggers.  I would also love to hear your opinion about the word "curvy", so don't forget to leave your comment below! :) 

Explain how you define the word curvy?

I define curvy as a shape and not a size, i.e. a plus size woman, a thin woman, or anything in between can be curvy!

30Plusstyle:The Swim Suit Edition

My sentiments about 30plusstyle's decision to do a swimsuit post zoomed to excitement the moment I tried on this one piece swimsuit from Lane Bryant.  I was drawn to the retro feel of this bathing suit and when I tried it on, was immediately SOLD!!
