Fashion Sin No More!

If you have been paying attention on twitter the past week, you have known a few things - I was excited about going to be out with my friends last night and I was going to commit a fashion sin and I really didn't care about it.  So, how was the event?  The event was great and I looked too cute.  

What did I wear?  I wore white after Labor Day - a white dress at that.  It was around this time last year I wrote a post about rocking your color.  I don't know if I put it out there then, but let me put it out there now - I never wore white before.  I personally don't think I look good in white...until this year.  I took a risk, bought a white dress, and it looked great on me last night.  I've had this dress all summer and last night was the first time I wore it.  In fact, the tags were still on it until last night.  

You cannot see the entire outfit because I took a famous selfie in the car, but you can see enough of the white.  However, there is another photo that I wish I h…

The key

Well, I don't know how long this one is going to be.  You never know with me - just depends on how I am feeling.  This post is all coming from a comment that was left on a photo I posted to my personal Facebook page.  The comment was nice and made me feel good, but I couldn't help but wonder what she was thinking about herself when she made the comment.  
In more or less words, she said, "I wish I had your confidence."  There has never been a day that I have been afraid of taking photos.  On the other hand, I will admit that it was a photo that made me change my eating habits.  Trust me, it was worth a thousand words and I started making changes the following weekend.  
I love photos and I have always been confident in them, but never did I think I would see the day I would be confident enough to march into an agency and get signed.  I'm loving what I am doing and I am loving the photo shoots and I love sharing my photos with you.  However, if I can make one person…

Battle of the boots

I know there are not a lot of full body photos of myself in this blog.  Don't worry, I am going to work on changing that because some of these posts really (and I mean REALLY) are worthy of photos.  This is one of those posts, but since I don't have any, just take my word for it.  

I'm a plus diva.  You already know that by the few photos you have seen of me and because this blog is called #ThePlusDiaries.  Well, there is one fabulously toned part of my body that I love - my legs.  My calf muscles are on point.  They are so on point that someone in m college days got bold in front of his girlfriend and asked to touch my legs.  We were all cool, so we all laughed it off and me being silly put my leg in his reach.  Those were fun times before life got so serious.  I digress...

Well, those gorgeous legs are the result of calf muscles.  I force myself to walk, even when I don't get the chance to work out.  If the weather is comfy, I don't mind parking further away so I c…

I will never forget

For me to have such a way with numbers, it's hard for people to believe me when I tell them that I don't remember the exact time.  However, I can remember where I was.  I was 16.  A junior in high school.  Sitting in Spanish class watching the towers fall.  That was second period.  Then there was lunch.  Third period came and I remember our teacher just let us sit there and work on an assignment, but we could take it home to finish if we wanted to watch the coverage.  Fourth period came and that meant having to leave to go to a different campus.  Living so close to a metropolitan area and less than an hour away from an airport, it was very weird to be outside and not see a plane in the sky.  My dad picked me up from school (he didn't buy me a car until 5 days later) and we talked and with him having a military background, he just knew that we were getting ready to go to war.  My mom finally got home from work and she hugged me tighter than she ever did before.  As a family…

The caption

Photos are worth a thousand words, right?  Well, I saw a photo today that sent me through a couple of emotions and everything in between a brief chuckle to sadness.  Ok - here goes.  
I was looking at photos today and I ran across one of a plus size lady in the beach in a 2 piece.  Nope, not a tankini (like I sport), but a for real 2 piece.  She was sitting in the sand and for real, she had a lot of size on her.  Truthfully, it looked like that water park scene in Norbit.  You know what I'm talking about.  I'm not making fun of her, but that is the only comparison I can think of.  
The caption on the photo made me chuckle.  Then after it wore off I wondered, I wonder what people thought or even said to her at the beach?  This was an ACTUAL photo.  Not photo shopped.  Not staged.  Not taken out of a magazine bashing thick chicks.  This photo was from a beach trip of someone I know.  After I wondered what was said to the lady in the photo, I wondered what she thought when she deci…

The "thing"

Well, in my last post, I told you about my injury.  In case you missed it, here it is in the short version - I was in a car wreck, I've been injured, I'm still under a doctor's care, and I have to have an MRI now.  So, in other words, the saga continues, but I press on.  

After today's trip to the doctor, I wasn't feeling too happy.  It was horrible, in my opinion, and I just wanted to do something that makes any grown woman happy.  Physical therapy may be tomorrow, but retail therapy took place today!  Who was the lucky store today?  Old Navy!

Yes, I took my wonderful self right to Old Navy.  I went because I needed a pick me up and because I was looking for a particular item.  When I went over there to where I was looking, I found they didn't have what I wanted in my size.  Well, what did I do?  I did like any decent female and went over to find me a gorgeous pair of jeans.  Well, I'm not sure if you can tell from my photos on Instagram and Twitter (same na…
