Stained Glass 

I used to shy away from attention. I would keep my head down, avoid eye contact so I wouldn’t get noticed. I walked around like a ghost, somehow making my large, fat body melt into the background. 


I could hide behind any pillar, disappear behind any wall, and though my ample hips would protrude, they were invisible… I, was invisible. 


You have such a pretty face, she said to me… She was my thin, beautiful, popular cousin’s thin, beautiful, popular friend. 


The words stung like hot blades cauterizing the wound as they cut, numbing me with the smell of my own burning flesh… Flesh. Pounds of it boiling over, seething, bubbling and molten under my clothes. 


I went crazy for a while. I watched them be attractive, be desired, be lovable. I wondered what it would feel like to be lovable too. I thought surely, there must be no better feeling than that of being wanted. 

I opened myself to any attention people payed me. I searched for it wherever I could. Just flaunt what you’ve got, they said, so I flaunted my fear of being alone.


They came running, saliva dripping down their necks, drawn by the intoxicating aroma of a woman who believes she is worthless. I let them abuse me, use my fears to control me. I let them break what was left of the girl with the pretty face and send me to my knees in a cloud of dust and broken dreams. 


But I was lucky… As I peered into the rubble that was left after I crumbled, the sun shone and I saw a glint of light, dusty, cracked, but twinkling. 


I pulled away the debris, brushed off the dirt, frantically rummaging for those shimmering bits of myself that I might still be able to salvage, and the flecks of smoked light began to transform. 


Before my eyes, the shards came together to form spectacular patchwork panes, stained by my memories, my shattered hopes, and the beauty in my reflection that I had never been able to see. 

I watched myself become whole again, or arguably, for the first time, bound together with lead, only toxic if I let it in; and the colours, they were glorious, refracting the sunlight, swallowing the darkness, all the while changing any light that passed through, making it fascinating and magnetic. 


Coloured glass, the proof of my existence, brittle yet magnificent. Lead, the reminder of my past, reinforcing my fractured pieces and making me strong. 

When I rose to my feet, I was not the girl with the pretty face. I was the girl with the pretty colours, all shades of light bouncing off one another, emanating from the core of the body I once thought unworthy of shining. 

My design, intricate. My pattern, complicated, but mesmerizing, and my colours, true and indelible.

More On Montreal + Fashion Week (And My Wedding Anniversary Too)

As promised, my next few posts will be all about Montreal + Fashion Week — a bilingual weekend-long event celebrating plus size fashion, beauty, and style, taking place this May 20th-22nd at the Crowley Arts Centre, but today’s post is extra special! 

My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary today, and I thought I’d take this opportunity to show off the arm candy I’ll be toting around with me at the even next month! (Yes! Boys are welcome to the event, so if you’re planning on bringing yours along too, be sure to get him a ticket when you purchase yours!)


I’ve been blessed to have married a man who is, not only my best friend in the entire world, as well as an incredible artist, but is also as style obsessed (if not more) than I am! I mean, this guy can dress, and I freaking love it! 

He also has a profound appreciation for, and understanding of plus size fashion (although the I credit myself for that part). 

I’m am also blessed that this lace dress from SexyPlus Clothing came into my life, because let’s face it, I look pretty hot in it, and my hubby agrees!




When Montreal + Fashion Week rolls around this May, you will be seeing us both there all weekend!  


If you’re coming for the fashion show, to the fabulous sale expo, to hear some of our inspirational speakers, or if you’re taking in the entire event because you’re just a boss like that, I’d be willing to bet that at some point, you’ll bump into us, doing what we do best, being awkward (me) and snapping pics of me being awkward (him)! 

Whether you’ll be wearing your man on your arm, or saving that space for more shopping bags, we are looking forward to seeing you there, and adding Montreal + Fashion Week to next year’s list of memories as we celebrate another year of surviving each other as husband and wife! 


Montreal + Fashion Week tickets available here (English) or here (French). 

For more details visit www.montrealplusfashionweek.com, and remember to follow @montreal.plus.fashion.week on Instagram, and use that #MTLplusFWstyle to show us your fave looks for a chance to be featured!

Montreal + Fashion Week Is Comiiing

As most of you know, I’m a Montreal girl, born and raised! I love my city, especially its rich history and diversity—a veritable melting pot of culture and language, and just an amazing place to call home! 

The plus size community here however, has faced many obstacles. We are a group of people desperately in need of the unity it takes to raise each other up and support one another, so when I was asked to join the first annual Montreal + Fashion Week team as the official blogger I was, how you say, f*cking exciteddddd!!! 

  
 
Led by the fabulous Emily Roy of the blog Entre Montréal et New York, and Nadine Moore of the plus size boutique Catapulp, and moi of course, Montreal + Fashion Week will be a celebration of plus size fashion, beauty, life and style, right here in my own beautiful city from May 20th-22nd. 

I’ve been helping out behind the scenes, and was lucky enough to attend all three model castings, first in Quebec City, then Toronto, and finally wrapping up right here in Montreal. It was such a blast to see all those beautiful babes show us how it’s done! 

With all that running around, I didn’t get a chance to do a post about what I wore, but luckily I managed to shoot my favourite look of the bunch this week! 

  

This fly AF quilted gold number from Your Big Sister’s Closet was what I wore to the Quebec City casting.

   
 
It’s literally everything… Like seriously!!! 

  
  
  
It’s total perfection paired with my fave pair of white jeans from Penningtons!

  
 
And with its edgy fabric and elegant cut, it may possibly be the most glorious springtime piece I’ve ever worn! Just saying.

  
  

Especially when accessorized with a little LV, some baubles from Aldo, and my chic Coach flats! 

  

  
  
  

  
The absolute ideal look to wear to a fashiony (yes, fashion-y) type event!

I hope to see all of you at Montreal + Fashion week! I’m really looking forward to meeting and mingling with my followers and plus size fashionistas, so be sure to get your tickets (here) before they’re gone, and come see me this May!!! 

For more details on the event, please visit: www.montrealplusfashionweek.com and check out the schedule here

Purchase tickets at here (English), or here (French). 

Be sure to stay tuned all this week and next, as I will be bringing you more info, special announcements and discussions about the event, as well as tips for making the most of your visit to Montreal if you’re coming from out of town! 

In the meantime, don’t forget to use the #MTLplusFWstyle hashtag on social media for a chance to be featured on @montreal.plus.fashion.week’s Instagram!

Be My Valentine?

I’ve never done a lingerie post before… 

  
The idea of putting my body out there to be picked apart, and being judged and slut shamed in the process has been something that has held me back and made me think that this type of post just wasn’t for me…

  
Then this sexy little number, a leopard print chemise from SexyPlus came my way, and it got me thinking… 

  
With each fear I’ve conquered, I’ve become more powerful. I’ve become stronger, and more confident. I’ve gotten to know more about who I am, and what I deserve. 

  
Sure, not everyone will approve. This will definitely ruffle a few feathers… 

  
Many will judge, because that’s just what people do…

   

  
But… The reality is, I spent a lifetime hiding—sometimes to the point of physical discomfort, just to spare the world’s eyes of the parts of me that I felt were so appalling, that nobody should see. 

  

  
So if this makes you uncomfortable, I’m not sorry. I’m not sorry because I don’t have to be… I never did, and I know that now.

  

  
I don’t need to show my body in order to prove anything to anyone. What feels empowering for me may not be what empowers you, and that’s okay… I choose to show it…  Not all of it, but most, because I have nothing to prove, but to myself, that I can be vulnerable, unapologetic, and not give a shit what anyone thinks of me. This is my own personal challenge. My body, my choice. 

  
I’m not what society calls, a good fatty. I have rippled inner thighs, and a stretch mark covered belly that hangs down. I have sagging breasts, a double chin, and arms that jiggle when I raise them…

  
But I’m beautiful. 

I’m worthy. 

Right down to my back fat and dimpled butt. 

  
So this year, I have asked myself, will you be my valentine? 

As much as I love my husband, and thank him dearly for snapping these gorgeous shots that have made me feel so bold and strong… My answer to myself is, yes!

  
Yes I will be my valentine, because sometimes self-love deserves to be celebrated too, and this Valentine’s Day, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! ❤️

1 Body Chain, 2 Ways, and 2 Countries 

When I was away in Haiti last August, I managed to sneak in one one photo shoot. I never published the pictures, but there’s a reason why…

  

  

   
Everything was perfect—my Monif C. fringed swimsuit, my ASOS sandals, and of course, my Ready To Stare body harness… 

   

 
    

 

  

  
 
Perfect, except for the fact that I was wearing it wrong—because screwing up is kind of my thing… *sigh*

    

   

  

  

But the beach was exquisite, as was my beautiful fat bod in that suit, and honestly, even though I wore it wrong, the chain body harness actually looked pretty amazing this way too! 

   

  

  
So, I decided to shoot some fab pics back home in Canada, wearing it the right way this time (Duh!) with a fab Kiyonna dress from SexyPlus Clothing, to show everyone that you can definitely have some fun playing around with body chains! We’ll just keep the fact that this was a totally unintentional discovery between us, though… K?

  

  
  
   
 

We can also keep the fact that it took me nearly six months to get around to shooting the second half of this post… Because procrastination is also my thing…

  
  
  


But it all actually worked out, because the contrast between my natural, freckled skin under the golden Haitian sun, and my ultra glam look, set against the backdrop of an icy frozen lake, is truly quite amazing!
  

  
  

And the discovery that this body chain is much more versatile than I had ever expected was a definite bonus! 

  
  
  

Sure, I wish I was on a beach in Haiti again right now, after sifting through my vacation photos… But at least I know I have my body chain to add some pizazz to my swimsuits on my next trip, and until then, it can look just as awesome in the snow!

Above 0° In Point Zero Curvy 

I’m all about staying cute and cozy during the holidays. With the snow on the ground, the icicles adorning the rooftops… Err… I mean, the mucky grass, unseasonably warm temperatures, no snow whatsoever, and with an inevitable green Christmas just around the corner, looking cute and staying just cozy enough has challenged our usual wintertime outerwear conceptions.

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that the folks over at Point Zero have always known how to do winter! But this year, their Point Zero Curvy collection is remarkably suited for our record breakingly warm December, letting us know that they were definitely at the top of their game in predicting that this winter, cozy layers would be exactly what Mother Nature ordered! 

  
This fantastic Point Zero Curvy, faux-shearling vest, is the epitome of rustic chic! 

  
   

 Paired with their super comfy, printed leggings, and beautiful winter white (oh, the irony), embellished, peasant style blouse… 

   
  
 
this is the ideal look for sipping hot apple cider, mulled wine, or hot cocoa (with marshmallows AND extra whipped cream, of course), and getting together with friends and family from near and far, to nibble on gingerbread, and enjoy the merriment of the season.    

  
  
 
And for any last minute Christmas shopping (because that’s how I roll), or for hitting those amazing Boxing Day sales, this PZ Curvy, faux-fur trimmed poncho is luxurious perfection! 

   
   
  
  

 Paired with their faux-leather trimmed leggings, and stunning black tee with sheer detail, this truly is the most gorgeous, and most importantly, comfortable outfit, that is suitable not only for hitting the shops, but for any other casual holiday get together, where a little touch of glam is called for! 

  
   
 
As always, it is such a pleasure supporting Canadian brands, like Point Zero Curvy! With quality pieces like these in my closet, I know that this winter, I’m well covered, both literally and figuratively!

  

   
 You can shop the entire collection at pointzero.ca (for my fellow hosers, eh), or at pointzero.com for international customers, as well as in store at SexyPlus clothing!

Be sure to follow Point Zero Curvy on Facebook and Instagram @pointzerocurvy, to keep up to date on their latest collections and promotions!

I'm Baaack

I suppose I owe everyone a bit of an explanation as to why I seemed to have all but disappeared from the blogging world for about two months… It wasn’t intentional — I haven’t been on vacation (unfortunately), nor have I been lacking amazing content to bring to you lovelies…

Not long after my birthday, at the beginning of November, my husband became very ill and was hospitalized. We weren’t sure if he was going to make it or not. It was one of the biggest scares I’ve ever had, and it really put life into perspective for me. 

Before you start worrying, everything is fine — he has made a full recovery, thank God! His illness was brief, but severe, and thankfully he was soon back home in my arms, where he belonged!

Understandably, this was a very stressful event in my life, and I have found it difficult, until now, to even try to wrap my mind around blogging, but throughout it all, I kept feeling this guilt over staying away from my amazing followers, so much so, that it made me avoid anything blog related, because it reminded me too much of how I missed it!!! 

I’m thrilled to say that I’m back, and I’m ready to show off a fabulous look that I shot way back in November, which was originally supposed to be featured in that month’s French Curves post. For obvious reasons, it never saw the light of day, but I thought it a shame to waste the shots and not share! 

       

This is, hands down, thee most amazing fleece cape/poncho/shawl (which is how I will be referring to it, since I’m not really sure which word describes it best), and would you believe, it was purchased from Costco!? Freaking COSTCO!!! 
 
Who knew a boxed cape/poncho/shawl from Costco, (and when I say boxed, I’m talking a men’s-underwear-mega-value-8-pack style box) could have the potential to be so chic!? 

   
 
  
I paired it with my fave jorts from Penningtons, which I’ve fall/winterized by wearing over a great pair of printed tights from Addition Elle. I love how the wild and sexy leopard print plays against the super classic houndstooth print, and they look so cute with my wooly, Penningtons booties!

  

Underneath, I wore an an oldie but a goodie, my military inspired, high neck top from Great Glam, which I’ve had for years, and continue to adore! 

  
Last but surely not least, let’s talk about my favourite new accessory — these totally gorge leather & faux-fur mittens, from Little Burgundy!!! I can’t even with these mitts! They’re so fab!!!

  
This is the absolute perfect outfit for the unusually mild fall/winter we’ve been having here in Montreal, and it has provided me with one of the two very valuable life lessons I’ve learned over the past couple of months:

   
  
#1, Life is fragile, so remember to tell the ones you love just how much they mean to you, because at any moment without warning, you could find yourself in danger of losing them; and #2, never turn your nose up at boxed Costco clothing, it may very well end up being the chicest thing in your closet one day!

SexyPlus Halloween 

It’s that time of year again! When any profession, character, and/or animal suddenly gains magical erotic powers and becomes instantly sexy! 

Yup! Halloween! And ever since I humiliated my kids, dressed as Fat Miley Cyrus a couple of years ago, I’ve made it my mission to dress up and make them cringe until a sexy granny costume won’t even be necessary, because I’ll be one anyway! 

This year’s costume is far less cringe-worthy, I must admit! In fact, my five-year-old son basically thinks I’m the coolest, and my fifteen-year-old… Well, I humiliate him on a daily basis, so he’s not a very good example…

  

   
 Complete with fingerless gloves, and a faux-walkie-talkie, my Sexy SWAT costume from SexyPlus Clothing is so realistic, you’d never even know it wasn’t an actual SWAT team uniform, especially since we all know, there’s a minimum fishnet requirement on all special task force uniforms in real life. (I’m being facetious by the way, in case you were wondering.) 

  
   
In all seriousness though, this costume does live up to its name! It’s definitely sexy, and pretty badass too! 

   
 
It had me feeling my inner Colin Farrell (which, when read out loud, is a few words short [or too many] of being a little too sexy, if you know what I’m saying)…  

  

  
Paired with my fave SexyPlus leggings, and thigh high boots, it’s the perfect costume for kicking ass, and taking treats!

   
 You know what they say… You’re either Sexy SWAT, or you’re sexy not (Sexy NAWT?). 

  
Happy Halloween!!!

Enjoy 10% off at SexyPlus until Friday, October 30th, when you use code SEXYORSPOOKY

Fall Trends Vote & Giveaway 

Fall is undeniably upon us… And with yesterday’s dusting of snow here in Montreal, one could argue that winter is already poking its head out from around the corner — but Jesus fix it! I’m not ready!!! 

So to celebrate all those things I love about fall while it’s still here, the changing colours, cool crisp air, (and duhhh) the sweaters (!!!) I teamed up with Addition Elle, Penningtons, and super babe, Joëlle Vaillancourt, who some of you may know from the show Le Cahier (The Booklet) on MAtv, and we picked out our three fave fall trends! 

But that’s not all!!! All the falling leaves have gotten us feeling curious, and a little generous too! 

So, we’d like to know YOUR fave fall trend, and if you head over to Instagram to vote, you could be eligible* to win our #CurvyFatGiveaway of a fab fall shopping spree of $150 from Addition Elle and $100 from Penningtons! 

  

#1 is not only a fall fave of ours, but it is also 2015’s Pantone colour of the yearMarsala

Whether you’re layering wine on wine like me, in this great, fringed sweater and faux-leather, faux-fur trimmed jacket from Penningtons…

   
    
 Or wearing different tones of it on top and bottom like Joëlle is in these vibrant, velvety soft, corduroy leggings from Penningtons and this rich, deep coloured, fooler sweater from Addition Elle… 

   

 
     
 Marsala is definitely our go to colour this fall, and you can totally see why! 

#2 is evvverywhere right now — Suede! And it is without question, a big part of every fashionistas fall wardrobe this year, and we love it too!!! 

Wear it as the perfect base to an all black, date night look, like I’ve done with these gorgeous faux-suede leggings from Penningtons, for a luxurious, richly textured look that will be sure to add depth to any outfit…

   
    
 
Or as a standout piece, like Joëlle has done with this amazing faux-suede, camel coloured skirt from Addition Elle, for a striking look, rich texture and quirky elegance…
   
    
 
No matter how you wear it, suede definitely brings a lot to the table, and we’re hoping this trend will stick around well though spring so we can continue to have fun with it! 

#3 is last but not least, and probably my fave of all — 70s! This trend is reappearing once more, but this time with a very sophisticated elegance about it! 

You can rock an empowering androgynous 70s look, like I’ve done with these amazing plaid pants, and printed blouse with elongated cuffs from Penningtons, paired with a long, sleek necklace, and a fantastic faux-fur collared wool trench from Addition Elle, for a look that’s a combination of Eric Foreman and Donna Pinciotti all in one! (If you don’t get that reference, we can’t be friends — just kidding, but it’s on Netflix so go watch… Now!)

   
    
 

  
You can also do 70s glam, like Joëlle, and rock a great pair of wide leg jeans, like these ones from Penningtons, with a sexy, bell-sleeved top, like this lace crop, and beaded crocheted choker from Addition Elle. Bring on those disco nights!!!    
    

  
 

As you can see, the 70s may be a bygone era, but they’re still alive and well in fashion this fall!!!

French Curves: SUÈDE

  
Bonjour !!! It’s the 16th of the month again, which means it’s time for the French Curves Challenge – an outfit photo challenge with the French touch, created by the beautiful, Vanoue, of The Curvy and Curly Closet

If you don’t speak French, fear not, my dears! As always, an English translation will follow, just scroll on down!!! 

Il est encore le 16 du mois !!! Temps pour un nouveau French Curves Challenge – la collaboration entre les blogueuses francophones de taille plus, crée par la belle, Vanoue, de The Curvy and Curly Closet

Le thème ce mois-ci: SUÈDE

Avec la tendance 70s de retour avec force, le suède est partout dans la mode cette automne. 

Riche en texture, il apporte un élément chic et de luxe à votre garde-robe, et même si on l’associe beaucoup avec les années 70s, quand mélanger avec des pièces plus modernes, le suède peut facilement s’intégrer dans n’importe quelle tenue ! 

Pour le défi, j’ai choisi deux pièces différents — ce joli veste en suédine (Ok oui, je triche un peu, mais chhhut !) de Penningtons, et ces beaux petit flâneurs en suède jaune vif de Figure First, qui sont de seconde main, mais en état parfait. 

   

   
Ensemble, avec une combinaison hyper moderne, d’une robe rayée en noir et blanc d’Addition Elle, et mes jeans préféré… 

   

   
Des accessoires qui contrastent, comme ce collier épais en chaîne de Ready To Stare et mon sac Louis Vuitton classique… 

   

 Ces pièces en suède laissent les années 70s derrière, en échange pour un look contemporain et super charmant ! 

   

   
N’oubliez pas de jeter un coup d’œil à tous les superbe looks en suède de les autres French Curvettes iciainsi que sur Facebook, et Instagram aussi ! Et rappelez-vous d’utiliser le hashtag #FrenchCurvesOOTD et #FlightOfTheFatGirl sur tout vos looks de mode!!! 

  

And now for the English version!

The theme this month: SUEDE 

With the 70s trend back in full force, suede is everywhere in fashion right now! 

Rich in texture, it brings a chic and luxurious element to your wardrobe; and even if we tend to associate it with the 70s, when mixed with more modern pieces, suede can integrate easily into any outfit. 

For the challenge, I chose two different pieces — this pretty faux-suede jacket (ok yes, I’m cheating, but shhhhh!) from Penningtons, and these cute, thrifted little yellow suede loafers from Figure First, which are second hand, but in perfect shape. 

Together, with an ultra modern combo of this striped dress from Addition Elle, and my fave pair of jeans… 

Accessories that contrast, like this thick chain necklace from Ready To Stare, and my classic Louis Vuitton bag

These suede pieces leave the 70s behind in exchange for a contemporary and super charming look! 

Be sure to check out the fab suede looks from all the other French Curvettes here, as well as on Facebook, and Instagram too!!! And remember to use the hashtags #FrenchCurvesOOTD and #FlightOfTheFatGirl on all your style pics!!!
