Wow! We're hitting the big news...

I was very surprised today to find referenced in an article within the The article is entitled "For many women, finding plus-size clothes is still a reach" and speaks about how the shopping experience for plus sized women isn't always a pleasant one! Don't we all know what that feels like :-)

However the article goes on to point out the various fashion options that are slowly popping up here and there to suit our plus size fashion needs, and points to the various online store catering exclusively to the full-figured woman, as an excellent source for plus ladies to find the clothes they want in their size.

Many thanks to Mackenzie Carpenter, from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for including us in the article!

Fat Girl Flea Market returns to New York City

The Fat Girl Flea Market, a unique 2 day bargain shopping bonanza for plus size women, today announced the fourth annual event will take place on July 8th and 9th, at 208 West 13th St, between 7th and Greenwich Avenues in New York City.

The Fleamarketeers, a renegade crew of FATshionistas, announced plans for the fourth annual Fat Girl Flea Market. The Flea Market will once again arrive in Greenwich Village with an 18 foot truck overstuffed with a wide variety of plus size clothing – everything from jeans to leather miniskirts to business suits, sizes from 1X to 6X, some gently used, and some new with tags.

Each year, the Flea has grown. Vendors like Junonia, Big On Batik, and Making It Big generously contribute brand new garments. And countless people clean out their closets, donating suits, jeans, coats, dresses, sweaters, even ballgowns. Labels like Elisabeth, Lane Bryant, Jones NY... Shoppers flock to the Flea for the value, the fashion and the fun-- last year’s Flea Market was attended by women visiting from Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, and even Las Vegas-- the event draws attendees from as far away as San Francisco, California!

This year’s Flea Market takes place from 12 noon-8:30pm, on Saturday July 8th and from 11am-5pm on Sunday July 9th, at the LGBT Community Center, located at 208 West 13th St, between 7th and Greenwich Avenues. The Fat Girl Flea Market is a fundraising event for the annual conference of NOLOSE: The Revolution Just Got Bigger. For more information or to donate clothing, see or call (917) 532-6630.

10 tips for looking sexy this summer!

  1. Instead of blush, try a little bronzer. Apply it across the apple of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and your temples. You'll have that sun-kissed look without the sun damage. Extra bonus: Add a little bronzer to your decollete to make it pop.

  2. Shimmer it up. When you let your arms or legs go bare, play them up with a shimmering lotion.

  3. Hydrate. Don't look like a dried up prune. When you get dehydrated your skin can look dull and your lips dry and cracked. So, remember to carry a couple extra bottles of water with you and drink up.

  4. Feminine in flowers. Nothing says summer evening elegant like a flower in your hair. If you've just ended a day at the beach, pull your hair away from your face with a barrette and slip a flower in the barrette. It's quick, easy, simple and very sexy.

  5. Be sandal ready. Treat yourself to a pedicure to make sure your toes and heels are ready for their summer debut.

  6. Don't over do it. Keep make-up and hair simple and natural, like you just stepped off the beach.

  7. Summer jewels. In the warm summer months hair usually goes shorter or up, so opt for some cute drop or dangly earrings. Also when showing off your legs, try a cute anklet or a fun toe ring with sandals.

  8. Packing savvy. Nothing is worst than luggaging a heavy suitcase in hot weather. Pack light by making wise choices. Take clothes that can pull double duty and change your looks with accessories. A couple extra necklaces are a lot lighter than a couple extra outfits. For example pack a cute summer dress that can work with high heels or flip-flops.

  9. Wet head. In the summer your hair can get dry, you colors can go flat and blondes can go green. Before dipping in the ocean or diving into the pool, pre-wet you hair with clean water. Extra bonus: Keep a bottle of spray conditioner handy for after your swim to battle the after swim tangles and frizz.

  10. Sun-block! Sun-block! Sun-block! The lobster look it out; besides protecting your skin now, applying adequate sun-block will have you looking great for years to come.

Big Moves will present Big Spender, "an old-time extravaganza of plus-size dance and performance" on Friday and Saturday, June 2 and 3, at the Improv Café at the Improv Comedy Club (318 W. 53rd St., between 8th and 9th Avenues) in midtown Manhattan.

Our décolleté dancers are getting ramped up for the tour, and New York will catch all the sparks!," state press notes.

"Like other Big Moves shows, Big Spender will be a mix of audience favorites and brand-new numbers, led by Filling the Stage, Big Moves' musical theater company, which returns with three hot new numbers, including one collaboration with the Phat Fly Girls for a super-fly twist on a stripper classic. In a daring, reality-show twist, three would-be Big Moves-NY dancers will get their Big Moves debut on Saturday night, when they audition their sassy, burlesque-y number live! In addition to these fresh, new faces, we're thrilled to welcome back to the Big Moves stage the plus-sized performers we know and love, including Seleka with bellydance, drag star Sweetie, singer/songwriter Nedra Johnson, and comedic actress Janie Martinez."

Big Moves is the only production company and service organization in the country dedicated to bringing more people of all sizes into the dance studio and up on stage. Big Moves-USA and its regional branches are fiscally sponsored projects of Intersection for the Arts, a 501(c)3 organization.
