sweet spot

Curvy Girl Chic Plus Size Fashion Blog Sweet Spot
Because every girl needs a giant candy clutch in her life.

I have a total sweet spot for anything candy-themed. From my Kate Spade chocolate bar clutch to this MMM x H&M magenta monstrosity, I just can't get enough of the kitschy goodness. I also have a Juno-esque hamburger phone (thanks sis!), cheeseburger CD case, strawberry pillow, and numerous other items disguised as food. I just need a macaron iPhone case and I'll be all set! :D

Happy Tuesday! Thank you guys so much for the sweet comments on my last outfit post! I loved hearing your stories about your love for stripes! :D

I've been on a printed-everything-buying-frenzy and I'm majorly in love with this blazer! I adored almost everything from the Prabal Gurung for Target collaboration and was disappointed when it didn't extend into plus sizes as other Target collaborations have before. Still, I tried everything I had my eye on because you never know what might work, and I fell in LOVE with this blazer! I love how bright and colorful it is against my new favorite Torrid jeans (same jeans from the photoshoot! :D). These jeans, by the way, fit incredibly well on a variety of body types--I was amazed at how well these fit everyone at the shoot, regardless of body shape. It was like skinny jean magic!

Have any of you tried the Torrid Stiletto skinny jeans? Curious to see if they worked as well for everyone else!

So tired of hearing the same plus size fashion don'ts cycled around everywhere. STRIPES ARE OKAY, YA'LL. Better than okay. They're awesome. Necessary. Essential. I'm obsessed, and frankly, sick of people saying plus size girls can't wear them.

I still remember being majorly bummed out as a kid when I was out shopping during a family trip in Taiwan (where everyone is tiny), and I was wearing one of my favorite striped shirts. Out of nowhere, my mom walked up from behind and told me I really shouldn't wear striped shirts anymore because I looked fat. The rest of that day I was so self-conscious I couldn't even focus on shopping. True story. Amazing mainly because I can't remember the last time something distracted me from shopping. Anyway, I wish I'd known then what I know now, because let's set this straight--I am plus size. I will be plus in a black dress, and I will be plus in a striped one. No amount of spanx, "slimming" colors, or fat-smushing-torture devices will change that.

Moral of this story? WEAR STRIPES. because they're awesome. and so are you.
