I’m so excited to be hosting a party to celebrate the launch of #aplusbyanthropologie at their Paramus NJ store tomorrow! (RSVP link in bio!) I did a big #inthefittingroom at their Roc Center location today to prepare, and in an unprecedented [for me] move, I’m going to let YOU decide my final hosting look‼️ Head to my IG Stories to watch the whole In the Fitting Room now, get links to everything, and vote on your favorite @anthropologie look for me - I’m counting on you to do me right 😁💕 #anthropologiepartner #plusblogger #anthropologieplus
Just posted a little @forever21plus #inthefittingroom on my Stories, including some picks from their current mega sale, (linking this almost sold out look too). Let me know where you want to see my next In the Fitting Room in the comments - they are super time consuming to make so I always want them to be useful for my reader babes 💕 #foreverbabe #plussizefashion #nycblogger #pmmlovemybody #plussizeromper
Seriously missing #Grenada and the lush grounds at @truebluebayresort this morning! I’m working on my big #curvilytravels blog post about the @grenadachocolatefest and my first trip to the island, and I want it to be useful for you babes, so let me know if you have any questions you want me to answer in the guide! 📷: @luvnishk #travelblogger #puregrenada
Blogging is weird. I almost didn’t post these photos today because they didn’t “work” in the my feed as I had it planned out. There’s a lot of pressure to have every last detail arranged to perfection, and I understand that from the business side, but my primary reason for blogging has ALWAYS been you reader babes 💕 I absolutely love the joy on my face in these pics from basking in the sun by the water today (for two whole minutes before I got too hot 😄), and the colors and vibe make me happy. Seeing other plus size babes in fun pics like this always inspires me, so I’m sharing them, feed plan be damned! Ultimately, I hope they bring a little sunshine to your day ☀️ Pics by @khrystyana
Shoutout to maxi dresses for making me look taller than my actual 5’4”-and-a-half-on-a-good-day height 😁 (Dress details on CurvilyFashion.com)
Where do you go if you need a little breather from the day? I’m constantly on the lookout for cute little spots amongst the endless bustle of NYC, like this flower-filled courtyard that @arlohotels set up for the summer (they make a mean iced latte at their coffee shop too!) I’d love to hear your own personal faves in the comments! P.S. This incredibly comfy mixed stripe dress is on sale today, and I’m linking it in my Stories now!
I missed #NationalBikiniDay, but I have to give a shoutout to @curvybeach, the woman-owned company that made the first string bikini created for plus size bodies, (and the first string bikini I ever wore)! I can’t believe it was just a couple of years ago when I took the plunge to wear this classic bikini style, and now it is one of my absolute favorites (I have #curvybeach 👙 in multiple colors and prints now!) So if you are currently looking at this post and thinking you couldn’t wear a bikini like this, I 8000% encourage you to give it a shot, because #allbodiesarebikinibodies 💕
I always get requests to do a @torrid #inthefittingroom, but we don’t have one easily accessible from Manhattan, so I jumped on the chance to film one for you babes when I was traveling to Indianapolis. Swipe right to preview what I tried on, then head to my Stories to watch all the fit and sizing feedback! When you are done, comment here with your favorite piece so I know what type of styles you want to see in my ITFRs 💕 P.S. Thank you to Keylee and Christy at the Circle Centre Mall for a lovely shopping experience!
TFW you are already so happy with the cocktails at @lamiasfishmarket but then you see someone else’s food go by (swipe to see my moment of distraction 👀😁) Who else is guilty of ogling other people’s plates at restaurants? 🙋🏼♀️ Fortunately, our own meals at the cutest new seafood spot downtown were just as much of a feast for the senses. I am VERY picky about scallops, and Lamias Fish Market really impressed me with their presentation, with perfect sear (not easy for scallops this massive!) and delicious complementary notes that didn’t overwhelm the beautiful natural flavor of the scallops. I took full advantage of my birthday privileges to try everyone’s food too, and the squid ink linguine and garlic butter clams were yummy as well. The giant strawberry Tres Leches dessert is perfect for sharing too - it was so big that three of us couldn’t even finish it! If you are looking for delicious seafood with seriously eye-catching decor, definitely give @lamiasfishmarket a shot. I will 100% be back for round 2 of these scallops, and after my shameless plate-gazing, I’m going to have to try the langoustines appetizer too #curvilyeats #nycblogger #nycdatenightspots #lamiasfishmarket
I had an absolutely amazing time celebrating my birthday with some of my favorite people in the world at @profundodayclub this weekend! From partying in the pool to dancing in the rain and back again, no amount of inclement weather could slow us down dancing 💃🏻 💃🏻💃🏻 Thank you @profundodayclub for hosting us, and thank you @wordsbynigel @jimmyjam0309 @khrystyana @psitsfashion @thickgrlscloset @moxy817 @marie_minnie_sally @theislandiva for bringing all the love and silly fun energy a birthday girl could ever ask for 💕💕💕
This is 35 😊 If you told me 10 years ago that I would feel confident and comfortable in my own skin to post a bra pic in my mid-30s, I would have never believed you. I’m so grateful for the #plussize #bodypositivity community for existing and helping me reframe what beauty encompasses, and am happy to work with brands like @parfaitofficial that are actively pushing to further that message with diverse representation and sexy and supportive products in sizes up to 5x 💕 This set is gorgeous and the fit is spot on (just make sure you convert for your correct UK size!) #parfaitpartner #powerofperfect #parfaitlingerie P.S. Swipe to see the original unedited pic - I use #chasingdenissepresets to keep my feed aesthetically pleasing and cohesive, but I love the raw image just as much (which really speaks to how far I’ve come of my self love journey!) #bodypositive #nonairbrushedme #goldenconfidence #pmmlovemybody
It’s my birthday! I’ve had a great day hanging out with some of my best friends in the world, and I am so grateful for all the incredible people in my life both near and far. This is going to be a great year ❤️
What part of your sign do you identify with the most? I’m a ♋️ and for me, it’s a tie between being a crier (I happy cry; I sad cry; I angry cry; I cry at sappy dog commercials), and being the most water-loving water sign there is 💦 It is so real that @wordsbynigel likes to say that I “need to be watered regularly” in the summer - and I can’t even argue 😁 It’s been less than a week since I’ve been in a pool and I’m already READY to float around again. I mean, look how happy I am poolside! Pic is a #tbt from @truebluebayresort by @luvnishk (full trip recap coming next week!) And thank you @eloquii for this excellent suit! #XOQ #curvilytravels #puregrenada #truebluebayresort
It’s definitely linen season ☀️[alt caption via @wordsbynigel: The temps are too damn high!] P.S. If you’ve ever wondered why I have my hand by my face in so many pics, swipe right to see what happens the moment I let it go 🌬 (and also to see the natural color of this @nicandzoe dress before my Rosie edit with #chasingdenissepresets)
#KEDICpartner When I started #plussizeplease, it was all about the fashion - specifically, not seeing the types of cool, fashion forward designs I wanted in plus. All too often, when a brand expands into plus (if they do at all), they immediately assume that “the plus woman” won’t want bold, interesting pieces. So I LOVE that @rachelantonoff didn’t sacrifice her signature aesthetic when deciding to expand sizing in her line. Instead, she worked with @kedic.fashionworkshop to make sure the plus fit was on point. I got to get a sneak peek at some of her new pieces from Fall 19 and beyond and I have to say I am IMPRESSED. A flight suit style jumpsuit might be one of the hardest things to fit correctly, especially on curves, and this one was straight up *perfect* (denim style will be coming this fall!) The wonderfully OTT pink velvet suit is incredible on too, and I love that it is going to be available in an inclusive size range. Thank you #rachelantonoff and #KEDIC for bringing these #goals-worthy styles to plus customers 💕
Stepping into my birthday week full of joy about what I experienced and accomplished in this last year of my life and excitement about what’s to come! 😊 Thank you @11honore for this gorgeous @tanyataylor dress, and @indianafashionweek for giving me another great excuse to wear it 💚 #11honoré #tanyataylor #curvilytravels #designerplus #andigetdressed #plussizefashion #INDFW 📷: @chan_inthecity
