I’ve thought about making this post for a long time and this week seemed like the perfect time to do it. The nature of a blog lends itself to always talking about oneself, and that’s awesome. However, blogging is also about community.
Not to make this too sad, but a few years ago a well respected member of the plus size fashion community, model Mia Amber, passed away and one of the first things I thought was that I never even told her how wonderful I thought she was. That was a personal lesson in expressing love for people who are important in my life.
Blogging would be no fun without all those who read this blog and all the blogs I read. I’m sort of an introvert and haven’t met many bloggers in person. However, the fact that I admire each of these women is undeniable. This year, I’m thankful for the plus size & curvy blogging community.

Sometimes a dream outfit is years in the making. A long time ago I fell in love with a Miu Miu sweater that had a flutter panel. I’ve been looking for a replacement ever since and finally found this pretty flutter sweater. In a similar vein, I have been looking for the perfect harem pant forever. I went for an all over slouchy look by combining both. Fall is the perfect time for suede shoes, and I fell in love with these rose suede flats.

When the boutique My Curves & Me asked me what I thought about their intimates collection (ranging in sizes A-K and 28-46), I have to say I fell in love.
If you admire vintage inspired lace, scalloped edges, and flirty cuts, you are going to love these pieces as much as I do. Here, I curated my own dreamy collection. I hope you like my favorites! I know matching sets are held as the gold standard. But sometimes, a mixed set is more eye-catching. So when it comes to your boudoir wardrobe—keep an open mind.
Some of the best lingerie advice I ever got comes from professional titilizer Dita Von Teese, who said the most important thing to look for in lingerie is fit—you need to look and feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Ultimately, lingerie is more about how YOU feel in it.
What do you think of the looks I put together? Is your style no-fuss or all-frills?
