big fat summer challenge

If you’re a regular readie you know that I joined Jasifer’s style challenge for us big girls. If you’re just tuning into my blog, where I over share on occasions, catch up by reading this post.


I’m really geeked, excited, pumped, elated — basically doing-fashionable-cartwheels and all hype about this one. It’s the first challenge where I am certain I can complete. Not only that, it’s realistic. Most things on the list I either own and haven’t worn or really want to try and show you guys big girls can do it too.


Last week I went through my closet and paired some pieces together so that I could start crossing out some items on the list. I was proud that I knocked out so many the first time in the studio. Here’s my first look.

A high-waisted bottom is my new favorite trend for the curvy girls with an hourglass shape. It can also work for a boyish frame, or an athletic build as well. Think of it as a built in Spanx. This look will tone and flatten the tummy area. On the down side, this look is totally for a ‘stand up and walk around event’. Sitting down was extremely uncomfortable and the whole time this skirt kept rising. But overall I adore this look and I think you will see me in tons of high waisted bottoms this fall.

Check me out.

Hi Waisted Bottom – Kenneth Cole Skirt from Nordstorms.
Top – is actually a body con dress made by Paco Rogiene (next post)
Shoes – Enzo Angiolini from DSW
Necklace – Wholesaler in NY
