January Clothing Swap!

I love this amazing fat fashion community we have formed in Portland.  With more people joining for every event I'm only wishing we had started it sooner.  Today's even was hosted by Nicole in her lovely home.  We had by far the biggest turn out.   SO MUCH CLOTHING!  I walked away with a wicked cute polk dot nighty, hoodie, grey/blue tank, black cardigan and so much more!
 Everyone helped to stock the kitchen full of amazing goodies to eat plus about 10 or more bottles of champagne.   Can't wait till our next event. :)

Outfit Details-
 Tank- Torrid (bought on Fattoo)
Skirt- DIY
Over the Knee Leggings- Domino Dollhouse
Belt- ReDress

Planchettes Please!

Domino Dollhouse Galaxy Collection!  You have all heard about it, seen it, drooled over it and bought it as have I.  One piece in particular being the Full skirt in planchettes.  Now I don't own many white items because I am a clumsy person.  But when I saw this skirt come out I just had to have it.  With a stretchy black waistband this extremely comfortable knit skirt is perfection.  I'm on the larger side you guys and this skirt fits me well along with her over the knee leggings but thats another post.  Domino Dollhouse is great with their fit.

I realize I have a lot of black and white going on in this outfit, I know.  Luckily my hair is glowing pink and and I added a necklace with dash of teal in to combate that.  Not much more was needed.  This is something I plan on going to tea in.  Thats right.  I go and have tea with friends.  It's lovely!  But this skirt can also be paired with a different top and heels for a night out and these days it's great to have versatile clothes.

OOTD Details-
Black Tank- Old Navy
Planchette Skirt- Domino Dollhouse
Cardigan- Thrifted
Necklace- Evans
Shoes- Payless

Plus Model Magazine!

Just in case I haven't posted about it enough I had 5 pieces (velvet leggings, velvet bodysuit, bandeau top, mesh bodysuit and velvet skirt)  from my shop Chubby Cartwheels worn by the beautiful Clementine in the January 2013 issue of Plus Model Magazine!  The gorgeous and talented Reah Norman styled the shoot that also featured Cult of California, Domino Dollhouse (these being some personal favorites of mine) and other fabulous brands.  I was beyond thrilled that Reah asked me for pieces from my shop and couldn't be happier with the way the shoot turned out.

Thank you Plus Model Magazine for all you have done and continue to do with the plus size fashion world!  To see more pictures from the shoot click the link below for the magazine.  The pictures start on page 81.





Much Love!

That's a Wrap!

2012 was a fantastic year for me.  My first full year with my shop Chubby Cartwheels, I visited LA twice, made new friends, had my first fashion show and the list goes on.  I was going to put together a Best Of 2012 photo collage and I realized one thing.  I wore nothing but skirts and dresses and while I won't stop wearing them I need and want to incorporate pants, jackets and different shoes into my wardrobe.  I also would like to do more product reviews.  I feel like being the size I am I can show other women around my size there are many options out there for us.

In 2013 I hope to have more photo shoots for my shop as well as my blog, do more videos, have another fashion show, travel again, buy a new car (my car's nickname is The Hate Tank) and further my career in fashion and maybe even try a new hair color!

These were some of my favorite moments from 2012~
