Washable Style in Real Life Designer Pieces

wearable fashion

Real life and high fashion don’t usually mix terribly well, at least in my world.  I make it to the dry cleaners about twice a year, if that, and the only reason I’m wearing things that need to be dry cleaned (on the rare occasions when I do) is because my kids are old enough not to spit on me anymore.

Plus Size Coats

plus sized coats

We need to talk about plus size coats. Because it’s snowing at my house right now, and forecast says it isn’t going to stop any time soon. We also have highs in the teens lined up for the next few days.  Brrr! I just want to stay inside, but despite my tendency to sit in my comfy chair next to the fireplace there are times I do have to go outside. We take our coats seriously in the northeast. They…

Plus Size Active Wear- Sports Bras

Happy New Year! Time to get going on those resolutions, right? We all know that most goals for the new year are fitness related…..something to do with our enjoying the holiday season a little too much, I’m sure. When I first started going to the gym my biggest challenge was finding something to wear. I wanted clothing that would be comfortable for my workouts, but also wanted to cover the body parts I was trying to improve without spending big…

Casual Studious Fall Outfit Idea For You

fall style

  Need an outfit idea for Fall, now that we’re almost heading into Winter?  I’ve got a great outfit for you: a combination of casual, sexy, + studious.  How can that be, you ask?  Easy.  Mix some sophisticated pieces with some ripped boyfriend jeans (or maybe just some skinnies, your choice) and you’re ready to roll whether you’re headed into the office (I wouldn’t maybe wear ripped jeans there unless you’re a pretty casual bunch) or to the classroom, or…
