You can absolutely get plus size designer dresses. Here are four I like.
When it comes to plus size designer dresses that have a topical feel that you can wear as a guest to a beach wedding, this is the perfect vibrant dress. You can wear flats with this dress, but pearl pearl jewelry is perfect so don’t opt for anything else! I love the purple straps and the waistline, it really pulls the dress together. It’s like tropical watercolor come to life.
If you like dark gothic fashion, you’ll probably love this one right away. This pinterest plus size fashion piece reminds me of hippies, but haute couture hippies! But I like it, anyway. The top details are great. And accessorizing with a bold black cuff is really fun. The sleek hair and the bold pink lips also work well.
This bright yellow dress will nip you in at the smallest part of your waist and give you a great f ... Read More
I’m high on endorphins, so you’d think that would bias this Dr. Scholls Massaging Gel Inserts review. But it won’t. Because I both love and hate this product in the same breathe. I think it’s wonderful, and I think there are lots of ways it is poorly designed. And it also caused my shoes (which never bother me) to have re-aligned themselves and given me a blister on my inner right ankle.
They feel SO comfortable. And I know that they will reduce any foot pain. I’d wear these to a day at the museum or the zoo. Or if I worked on my feet all day. They should be mandatory for everyone. They’re so great. They just aren’t perfect yet.
You have to cut (or trim) it to the proper shoe size. While this is technically a great way to have a one-size-fits all product, I did not feel this was clearly labeled (it was on the packaging that I tore off to get to the product – meaning I had to go into the trash… yea.) For me, that wasn’t a huge deal. (You do need sharp scissors.) But I think of my Grandma (may she rest in peace) who used to always buy random stuff like this for herself and others. She would have bought this. And she would have had a lot of ... Read More
I am so excited to tell you guys about this Birds Button Dress I got. The brand is Tulle, and it’s found at TellStyle.com.
Description: This is one of our most flattering dresses. Perfect for any season and adorably featuring our favorite bird print. Pair this piece with hot pink or yellow to make a statement. In the colder months, throw a blazer over it.
I think it works great when you put a belt on with it. The material for this casual daytime dress feels so silky, as it’s an outer sheer layer and then an inner silky lining. And the cute button details make it feel very sweet. This is definitely a dress that Zooey Deschanel would wear.
Tell Style styled it with the Skinny Tassel Belt-Lazer in Blue, which I really like. I’d pass on the scarf and the platform pumps they used, going for some casual flats and some simple earrings.

Foxcroft Reviews: Their Denim Tunic is a BUY.
I received the Denim Tunic by Foxcroft and was overjoyed by what a wonderful top it is. They say it’s made of “smooth denim” which I’m not sure how to decode, but the FEEL of it is lightweight and “smooth” and just like denim if it were mixed with silk. The cut of it is generous and you can easily put the sleeves rolled up or not, and did I mention the pockets? Who doesn’t love pockets? These have huge pockets that don’t distract from the shape of the shirt. Because it’s denim, it doesn’t wrinkle. And it’s got enough details that it looks pretty fancy! I dressed mine up with white pants and some contemporary silver earrings that hang down like straight bars. This is perfect to pack up and take somewhere. My Mom borrowed it to go on a trip already. (Sister’s graduation in NY.) We both agree it’s one of the best travel shirts for women that we’ve ever had. Now we just have to agree on joint-custody!
Great for: Spring, Fall and Summer Nights!
Foxcraft is a bit more of my Mother’s mature and conservative aesthetic than mine. See what ... Read More
Children of the 80′s certainly must remember the pink dragon Serendipity books! This book series is best known to me for having unusual creatures and softcover books with fun covers with bright colors. (They all also had morals.) The books were written by Stephen Cosgrove and illustrated by Robin James.
They were written from the late 70′s, through the 80′s and into the 90′s.
You can buy older books for around $20 on Amazon, while new copies go for $100 or more.
Best Children’s Books of the 80′s
These are the ones I remember best:
- Serendipity taught kids: Knowing who you really are will bring you happiness.
- Crabby Gabby taught kids: Having fun while playing a game is more important than winning.
- Gabby taught kids: Talking is fun, but listening is just as important.
- Leo the Lop Tail 4 taught kids: Adults can learn from the magic children have in their hearts.
These morals are actually great to remind myself about, even as an adult.
- Zippity Zoom: It is important to take th ... Read More
I’ve got a new lotion recommendation for you gals!
The best lotion for dry skin does two things: absorbs quickly (is non greasy) and truly moisturizing. It’s not easy (being green – or) to find both of these items in one lotion. I recently tried the NEW Vaseline® Total Moisture® lotion and discovered for myself that it does both jobs. Which is wonderful – because I use lotion every single day, many times in the course of just one day! (Who doesn’t?)
There are three types of the Total Moisture lotion:
· Vaseline® Total Moisture® – Clean feeling lotion for healthy soft skin. · Vaseline® Total Moisture® Aloe Fresh – Light feeling lotion for healthy fresh skin. · Vaseline® Total Moisture® Cocoa Radiant™ – Rich feeling lotion for healthy glowing skin.
Vaseline Total Moisture Lotion Reviews:
Mother’s Day gifts under $50 dollars fall into two different categories. Some look like you bought any random item that was in your price range without any plan behind it, and other’s make it look like you spent much more than you actually did. They key is finding great Mother’s Day deals that aren’t cheesy, but are as stylish as your Mother.

Your new secret weapon for healthy snacking ideas is Nuts.com.
Let’s talk about nuts. I’m nuts, which is probably one of my better qualities. But there’s also Nuts.com. And before you go thinking it’s such a simple-sounding website that it might not even be real… let me fix that thought for you. The site name is simple, but they have branded themselves as an incredibly fun destination to buy ALL SORTS of things. From the pretty blue and orange re-sealable packages to the box (with cartoon drawings) that the items arrive in, everything about the process is fun.
I got to sample 3 items from Nuts.com. I do recommend ordering from this website, but I would only re-order one of the below items.
Dried Fruit Chips Review – These offered several varieties of fruit but I’ll be honest, I could really only taste banana and then “other” which was a sweet mix (which was apples, pineapple, etc.) I loved this, though. It was very healthy and had a great crunch. My only comment against it would be that there was too many banana chips. It’s great for healthy snacking ideas. The packaging was not just cute, but super functional to keep everything fresh! ... Read More
These “Hair Portraits” by Maria Gil Ulldemolins are drawn images of hairstyles that I couldn’t wait to share with you guys. I literally had them saved on my computer for a week (which is a bit typical for me, argh) and I kept seeing them in thumbnail version.
I used to sketch hairstyles out, but never with such elegance. I love that the focus is all on the back and it really shows you how certain hairstyles are put together. While I don’t think these were meant to be instructive, they still are.
Now THIS is intricate… oh boy. From the back of her head I think she seems like a very nice person, maybe a British gal who knits and drinks mint chocolate tea.
Here I immediately think of a Scandinavian woman who is a bit of a punk.
This woman would be a French citizen, maybe because her hair reminds me of a croissant.

If you’re looking for the best kettle corn brand around, it happens to be (amazingly enough) also the brand that makes the best caramel corn popcorn. They’re both by G.H. Cretors!
I recently had a chance to taste different varieties of G.H. Cretors Popcorn. The Caramel Corn and Caramel Nut Crunch were so good. Not only did I think it was the best I’d ever had, so did my Dad. And he’s not easily impressed. When it came to the Kettle Corn, I found it super sweet and the corn (like for all mixes) is perfectly and fully round and popped.
Oddly, I just didn’t like the cheese corn mix (and therefore I was not a big fan of the Chicago Mix that has the cheese and caramel corn together.) So, I cannot personally recommend that. But I typically only like white cheddar popcorn, anyway. And this was more of a heavy cheddar, I think.
Now that I’ve already told you all about how great some of these flavors are, it’s time to tell you even more about the popcorn. This is all natural popcorn. This is gluten free popcorn. This is GMO free popcorn. This is kosher popcorn!
