Fat Photo Shoot

Saturday was a fabulous day!  I got my little Chubby Cartwheels family together and had a fantastic photo shoot.  I had 2 new models this time around.  Becka and Chris.  Dream come true models.  Fun, energetic, and fabulous to work with.  Plus I had my previous mode Leigh who kills it every time we shoot.  My best friend Chrystal was the shoot assistant and the stylist who I could not have done it with out.  And last but never at all least was my good friend Nicole who was out photographer.  This was her first photo shoot and honestly I was blown away with how well she did.  I love my team and can't wait to post the photos live plus posting some fabulous new items coming to Chubby Cartwheels!  Here are some sneak peak pics from the shoot.





The nice thing about finishing a shoot early is that I was able to take a few personal photos for my blog.  Yay!  I recently put my Big Body Hottie graphic that I have on my buttons and put it on a white t-shirt.  I'm considering selling them in the shop so we will see how that works.  Also getting to show off an upcoming addition to my shop.  The black velvet skater skirt. It's incredibly soft and I can't wait to pair it with millions of bodysuits.  I really liked this outfit because it's a simple black and white look that makes my hair pop!  It's doing this weird light pink on top and red/pink at the bottom, which honestly isn't that bad even though it's the result of a hair accident.  Plus adding this Forever 21 Spiked Pork Pie hat gave it that little extra needed.  I saw Tracy Broxterman of Domino Dollhouse in her recent blog update wearing a back Patricia Fields hat and I fell in love so when I came across this one, I was inspired to get it for the Chubby Cartwheels photo shoot but ended up using it myself.

My Vintage Victory

My best friend took me to Fat Fancy for my birthday present.  I am on the larger end of the sizing spectrum so I don't always have the best of luck finding clothing most anywhere in stores.  But apparently the vintage gods were shinning on me that day.  Carlee one of the shop owners took me to a rack with some new dresses they just got in and I nearly died over this dress.  I kept saying to myself on the way to the dressing room this isn't going to fit.  They never fit.  Not to mention the fabric is non stretch which is just unheard of for me.  But magic happened that day in Fat Fancy.  Not just the magic that happens there everyday, but super size magic.   The dress fit!  And I look rather fabulous in it.  So to any of you ladies who feel like vintage shopping it out for you because the search is hard, never give up hope.  There are always amazing items to be found and rebirthed into the fat fashion scene.
