It is not Fall yet.  Not even close, in my mind anyway.  We had a late start to the Summer here on the West Coast, so I’m soaking up every minute of sunshine and heat.  I know sartorially we always want to skip ahead to the next season.  Rather than choosing to shop one season or another, opt for pieces that can transition seamlessly from one season to the next. When shopping for new pieces, especially dresses, I like to…

Size fluctuations.  It can be hard to get…

Six Pairs of Underwear You’ll Want to Wear and Some Bras Too

Several months back, I went on a mission to find underwear that fit, that I felt good in, and that were comfortable to wear.  I also wanted to move away from toxic companies like Victoria Secret, who’s former CEO had made it clear, their products aren’t for trans or plus-sized women.  I truly believe we get to vote with our dollars, so I did not want my vote to go to a company who is “selling a fantasy” and has…
