Almost two years ago, I wrote how I couldn’t wait for Melissa McCarthy to create her own clothing line, and I’m entirely excited to say that the wait will be over this Sunday, August 30th! Exclusive to Penningtons in Canada, her debut line, seemingly in partnership with LA’s upscale denim and lifestyle […]
Have you got all of your prezzie shopping done yet? Its time to get ready to party, and if you’re like me, you’re shopping for a fabulous dress last minute! 😉 I’ve yet to figure out when I’ll be hosting a party here at home (depending on when the rest […]
Over a year and a half ago Target began opening doors in Canada, something which was wildly anticipated across the country well before the “Zellers” signs had any chance of cooling off. Canadians have loved Target for years, despite the fact that it was a US-only company only until very […]
The third annual Big Deal Toronto is happening this Sunday! What is Big Deal Toronto you ask?? (*gasp* WHAT?! What do you mean?) In it’s third annual, BDT is CurvyCanadian’s baby; a fabulous one-day event where plus-size fashion bloggers get together and open their closets to Toronto’s curvy beauties! I […]
There are a few Canadian bloggers out there that can attest to the fact that I like to walk. Living in a condensed city, it’s sometimes much easier and faster to walk from A to B, rather than driving there or sometimes even using transit. Much to their consternation, I […]
Have you visited The Stockyards mall yet? The one on the corner of St. Clair Avenue West and Weston Road? It’s my new hunting ground for fashion, because from what I can see, they have more trendy plus-size fashion than any other mall that is easily accessible in Toronto. I grew […]
I just read an article that has my hackles up. Part of me thinks, maybe this is just an American thing? Plus-sized Canadians are well known border hoppers just to buy some affordable pretty clothes that fit; so plus-sized fashion lovers in the US do have some great clothing options […]
I can’t believe how successful I was to entirely forget this moment in my life, up until now. How excruciatingly embarrassing working as a movie extra was with a dire lack of plus size clothing options 10+ years ago.
So yeah, I’m totally in need of a new outfit (or two or more) for the summer, and have been stalking Addition Elle’s website for some must haves for my summer closet. And boy, did I find a lot of must haves. This season, I’ve bookmarked quite a few articles that I wouldn’t […]
Plus-size women can find a prom dress that will look just as beautiful as those found on the red-carpet this year.
AIR MILES has recently teamed up with IRIS The Visual Group to provide another way to spend your AIR MILES Cash. It’s easier to splurge a little, and get those classy frames you can’t keep your eyes off!
You might have figured out by now that I have a love affair with bags. I’m a complete bag lady. You name it, totes, handbags, computer bags, even luggage, I love collecting them! It’s my thing. 😉 So when Heys asked me to review their Nottingham collection, I might have […]
Not sure if you’re familiar with this conflict, but there is a war on words in a particular sector of the fashion industry. There is this vicious cycle where 14+ women don’t want to utilize the term “plus-size” when they discuss clothing and themselves, and yet are stuck using this […]
Melissa McCarthy is a fabulous icon for the plus-sized industry, and is well loved by the community, which is why her recent photo shoot for the ELLE November 2013 magazine cover disappointed many. Many believe she’s hiding behind a coat.
You may remember my post on the great deals on skinny jeans at Old Navy until October 2nd last week, and I can’t tell you how pleased I am with its quick shipping, because my order arrived just in time for conference week! Conferences are a funny animal when it […]
