The average size of American women in 2016 was a size 16. A 16 in ’16. Although I’m considered plus-size, I’m actually average-sized at size 16.

This blog is for every time I see a picture of an impossibly small model and imagine: how can I possibly squeeze my size 16 butt into fashion for the thinner folks? I also happen to have size 12 wide feet…and I’m just about 6′ tall. While it does make shopping slightly more difficult, I’ve found my stores and I’m here to share my finds with you.

I love bargains (I regularly shop used and vintage) and I can’t remember the last time I purchased clothing or shoes full priced. I love mixing and matching outfits and trying to find combinations with my current wardrobe and, of course, constantly expanding.

Here are a few things I can promise you:

-I will never, ever photoshop, filter or otherwise alter my pictures apart from cropping and overlaying text/images.

-Every picture you see on my blog is #nofilter because I want you to see the real me.

-All the outfits on this blog are actual outfits I wore all day not just outfits I wear for photos.

-All clothing and makeup is purchased and owned by me; I do have a large collection but my excuse is that I’ve been collecting for over 2 decades now.

Welcome, enjoy and leave me your comments!
