    Time to Shine: The Metallic Fashion Trend

    Metallic Plus Size Fashion TrendGuest post by David Williams

    Fast becoming the must have trend, metallics are back just in time for party season. But these glitzy garments are more than just one night stands; winter 2011 is all about embracing this incandescent trend and wearing your metallics loud and proud during the daytime too. Take a look at these ways to wear metallics from plus size women’s clothing retailer, Curvissa, and shimmy in silver and gold hues for a luxe look that’s entirely wearable.

    On a Date

    Men are attracted to women who feel confident with how they look, so dress to impress but make sure you feel comfortable with what you’re wearing. You can achieve this by incorporating the perfect amount of glitter glamour into your date night outfit but being careful not to go overboard. Keep your metallics to your accessories and just one garment; for example, a pair of black skinny jeans teamed with a gold top, black bag and statement gold earrings will provide the perfect level of shine without dazzling your date.

    Lovin’ The Skin You’re In: How to State It Loud and Proud

    Confident Plus Size Woman

    by Andrea Amador

    As a plus size woman, living in a thin obsessed society, it’s highly likely that you’ll often find yourself the target of people’s fat phobic ridicule. Whether you’ve known them forever or just met these trash talkin’ diet lovin’ plus size body haters recently, it’s up to you to teach people how you want to be treated, and remember it’s never too late. In this article, I answer a reader’s question wanting to know what to do about the seemingly fat phobic new guy she’s been dating.

    Question: I’ve been on a few dates with a guy I met on a dating site. We’re not exclusive or anything, and he’s kind of fun to be with. But almost from the beginning of our relationship, he’s been critical of my appearance, particularly my weight. He’s always making little comments about how thin people behave or remarking on how much better my clothes would fit if I’d join a gym and shed a few pounds. What’s really funny is that he has a bit of a belly and love handles, but I don’t mind stuff like that. The other night at dinner, he actually asked if I should be eating a salad instead of hamburger! I really liked him at first, but these comments are getting old fast. Should I stick it out and let him get to know me and see if he’ll accept me the way that I am?

    Christmas Party Fashion For Men

    KingSize Big & Tall Two-Button Suit Jacket by Kings' Court

    Guest post by Michael D Taylor

    When you look around the average office Christmas party, you’ll see men milling about in red and green sweaters, or perhaps in an ill fitting suit and the same pair of brown leather loafers they wear to work each day. This year, don’t be that guy! As I always say, there’s nothing wrong with being the best dressed man in the room, regardless of where you are. And with party attire, you have quite a bit of freedom in terms of style and creativity. So use it to insure that you look your best at the Christmas parties you attend this year.

    The first factor when considering what to wear is appropriateness. If the party is a black tie event, you wear a tuxedo, no questions asked. If it is semi formal, this is a little more open to interpretation. An evening event will be more formal than a daytime one. A party at a sophisticated candlelit restaurant will be more formal than one at a family style restaurant. Pay attention to the details of the party to figure out how formal it may be.

    How to Find the Perfect Christmas Season Party Shoes

    Black Satin Pump Shoe for Women by Bella VitaGuest post by by Jamie Simpson

    Every woman knows that the right pair of shoes can make or break an outfit. This is especially true for Christmas parties. Women must dress to impress as there are bound to be countless old friends and acquaintances in attendance. And let’s face it, we want other women to envy our style.

    There are several factors to keep in mind when selecting a pair of shoes for a holiday party. The first thing to consider is the time of day. Is the party to take place during the day or in the evening? A daytime party is often less formal and may not require the same calibre of attire as would an evening party.

    The New Tarina Gown by IGIGI

    IGIGI Plus Size Tarina Gown

    The Tarina Gown is one of the newest dresses you can find at IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel. Each week IGIGI launch some gorgeous new styles… the love to tempt me you see ;) … and today I wanted to highlight one of my favorites from their new arrivals.


    This gorgeous gown come in a gorgeous deep grape color and features a sexy plunging neckline and full length pleated skirt. It ships with a lovely detachable hand beaded belt – so you can choose to wear the dress either with or without the skirt. I recommend you try it out with the belt though, as it will help cinch in your waist. Up to a little over a year ago you wouldn’t have caught be wearing a belt ever, I though they accentuate by large stomach further, but how wrong I was! I tried on a wide belt with a tunic top from Fashion To Figure once, and I was won over. So if you have a belt phobia, I truly understand! But take the leap and see how you like it.

    Back to the Tarina Gown by IGIGI, this dress is available up to size 30/32, and can be worn both on or off the shoulder. IGIGI recommends this dress for the following body shape: triangle, inverted triangle, hourglass, rectangle and figure eight body shape.
