PopUpPlus Summer White rsz_img_1870

I’m never surprised at the trolls. They are everywhere. There is a segment of our society that has a hard time embracing the idea that curvy girls have a right to wear what they want to wear. Hell! Everyone has the right to wear what they want. Society wants to tell us to cover up and hide our bodies. I ain’t here for it. So I am encouraging you to look and feel great at any size.

I had the opportunity to attend the most amazing show yesterday!

Christian Siriano debuted his Spring Capsule Collection with Lane Bryant at the United Nations followed by the Empowering Women Summit. Actress, Danielle Brooks, Models Ashely Graham, Candice Huffine, and Precious Lee were among the models who graced the runway. Not to mention some of your (and mine) favorite bloggers also ripped the runway! (Go Nicolette, Gabi and Beck!)

This 27-piece collection is dripped in unicorn greatness. Every. Single. Piece. I’m not sure how I am going to be able to justify purchasing an entire collection to my boyfriend but I am going to try. From the fit, to the bold colors, Christian got this right for us plus size girls! View Full Post

There has never been a moment in my life where I wasn’t plus size. In fact, I was plus size before the world introduced us to the term plus size. As a relatively tall teenager (I’ve been 5’8 since I was 9) I grew up ashamed of my curves. Partly because I had to shop at the same places my mother did. I have to give myself credit though. Somehow I figured out how to dress up those mom jeans. I even learned a cute way to tie up my plaid shirts so that it would fit tight around my wide waist—just like my skinnier friends. But I never wanted to show off too much of my body. View Full Post

Plus size model Ashley Graham

Hey beauties, it’s your girl Maui!

I don’t know if you have heard but plus size history was made a few days ago. Yes, Ashley Graham became the first plus size model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated while Precious Lee became the first African-American plus-size model on the inside pages. This is a huge accomplishment for both of these curvy beauties as well as the plus size community. However, a cloud of negativity followed that which has me really disenchanted about some individuals within the plus size community. View Full Post
