Plus Size Outfit Post – Stripes and Chucks

It’s been FOREVER since I posted anything, let alone a plus size outfit post. Like at least 6 months……. or like 4 weeks……. WHATEVER, that’s way too long! To be honest, I just haven’t been getting dressed much. Work and my brain have kept me busy, and neither of those things are terribly conducive to…

Plus Size Outfit Post – Lace Dress

Look at me – two plus size outfit posts in a week! It’s like I’m a real blogger or something…… So this Friday, we have a really big and fancy family event. My grandparents are celebrating 60 years of marriage. Crazy right?? Obviously this means I have to be super fancy. But not just Cathy-fancy;…

Plus Size Outfit Post – Mad SWAG

Two plus size outfit posts for the price of one! I haven’t been getting dressed up all that often recently, and I doubt you want to see my endless variations of comfy shorts and t-shirts. And I when I do get dressed, I almost always forget to ask Adam to take my picture. But I…

New Bras Make Me Feel Like a New Woman

WARNING: I’m gonna be talking about a whole lot of bra stuff in this post. Bra sizes, bra styles, bra wearing…… just a whole bunch of bra business. If that makes you get the vapors, look away now! Everyone good? Alright let’s continue……. I’m gonna make a bra confession: I NEVER wear the right bra…

Outfit Post – What I Wore To An Art Show

It’s been a pretty crazy week and weekend around here! After the big announcement, it seemed like all I did was answer questions and cry….. a lot. Don’t worry, all were tears of happiness. On Saturday, we went to a show at an art gallery to support our friend Ruthie. She is so insanely talented…

My Favorite Beauty Stuff …… And Things….

I got the idea for this post from my fabulous friend Grechen. (BTW, you should totes read her blog. She’s seriously awesome.) I’ve really stepped up my beauty stuff in the last year, mostly thanks to my awesome Birchbox subscription. Here’s are some of my favorite beauty and makeup products right now.   Row 1…

Outfit Post – Gwynnie Bee Floral Dress

When I put this dress on, I actually said “Man, I wish I had a pair of Dr. Martens to go with this.” Deja vu!! The 90’s really are back with a vengeance…..   Dress – Asos Curve (via Gwynnie Bee) | Leggings – Target (or Old Navy) | Boots – Blowfish Shoes  (no longer…

Shopping Haul – Nordstrom’s Winter Sale

There are a lot of things that make me happy. Time with my family, hanging with my huge pile of fluff (my cat Widget), a good book, time with the boyfriend, a well-written thank you note, and so on. But nothing – NOTHING – gives me the same fluttery, excited feeling as the phrase NORDSTROM…

Warby Parker Has a New Collection and I Love it ALL

As you can tell from my many pictures (man I am VAIN!), I wear glasses. They are cute and fun, and I adore them. I would wear contacts, but I can’t. 1 – I am lazy as hell, and 2- I am creeped out by the thought of touching my eye on a regular basis….

Ross Bennett + Blue Avocado = Men’s Accessory Greatness

Last week, I was super psyched to get invited to a launch party for Ross Bennett’s collection with Blue Avocado. Cliff’s Notes version – Ross is a super awesome Austin designer who’s amazing talent has taken him to TV (shout out to Fashion Star) and COTA (he designs for the fabulous Grid Girls). Now he’s…
