There are a few things that I always need when choosing athletic wear for myself. My checklist of necessary components of athletic wear is simple and seems easy to fulfill. However, when it comes to plus size active/athletic wear, brands who hit each mark are few and far between. Thankfully, TEMA Athletics hits them all! Comfort Breathability Stretch (and for bonus points) Stylish! Not only is TEMA Athletics everything you want and need when being active, they are SUPER inclu
When it comes to style, size obviously shouldn't matter. As a plus size woman, it's always a struggle to find stores that actually cater to specific styles. For instance, some days I want to be a pinup queen and so, it's nice when I find a one stop shop for it! Lady Voluptuous is just that, for all things vintage! (Photography by John Carlo) I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Lyra Dress in "Blue Floral," and let me tell you they are flying off the shelves for a reason!
Pulleez hair bands are revolutionary. I'm not even close to lying when I say these Pulleez hair bands made such a difference in my daily life and routine. Normal hair bands were always really tough on my hair and without question pulled out my hair every day. On top of that, I am one of those people who always wears a hairband on their wrist... but the problem is I have 1) very sensitive skin and 2) larger wrists. So with that, tight hair bands were beginning to rub painfully
If you love clothes, you've probably heard of the brand LuLaRoe by now at some point or another... but have you tried them yet? After quite some time of wanting to, I finally got to connect with a LuLaRoe consultant, who I absolutely love! Michelle Kendall knows what she's talking about and has such great style. She helped pick out some GREAT pieces for me! We both strongly wanted to show that items that are more "body-con" cut can without a doubt, be pulled off by a curvy/pl

If you don't already know about the trendy, high quality, high fashion, plus size brand Eleven60, then you're about to thank me! Each piece of clothing their designer has created is for the "professional curvy woman that is chic, sexy, bold and eclectic." What more could a girl ask for?

There are certain pieces and people of history that resonate with everyone differently. There are people who can inspire you to become the person you want to be. Intentionally or not, there are two women who have helped mold me to the ever-changing person I am. Two powerhouse, trailblazing women who refused to conform to anyone else's standards for the sake of their own happiness and art. Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo are artists who helped teach me to create my art unapol
I'd love to talk about what I very much consider my first big "baby steps" I took on social media that was monumentally my start of becoming body positive. Basically, a few days after I made made my Instagram account, I felt compelled to do something "radical". I was looking at my gallery on my phone, scrolling through all of these "selfies" and pictures I had taken that I had never shared with anyone before. I'll never be sure why I took them in the first place (considering
Hey, it's me. For those who don't know, my name is Faith, or as you might know me, @faith-plusfashion from Instagram. As you may or may not know, I am an aspiring plus size model, body positive/fashion Instagram blogger/freelance artist. This is my first ever official blog post, and I am quite terrified. Let me explain... I started an Instagram account about a year ago, and since then a lot of my world has changed. I started with a journey, no "exact" destination, but with a
