Plus size fashion stuff–Look, my new Hoodie Top!

11 Jan

I was shopping today, not in an actual mall, but online. I’m lazy that way but finding plus size stuff that I want to wear ain’t always easy. Amazon’s one click shopping makes it so easy, and I still had an unspent gift card.

So I figured I deserve something new, lol. And it beats taking the Special K challenge…sorry, that’s off topic. ~I just found out you can do an image slideshow, cool…Thank you, WordPress, for teaching me something new today 🙂

Gorgeous plus size hoodie top features short sleeve and long tunic design. Deep cut v-neck with string accent in the front. Beautiful gray designer print on solid color fabric with rhinestone accents. Perfect blend of casual comfort and fabulous style. Available in Black and Gray color choices in our store.

I was looking for a new dress actually, but I usually end up buying something else, usually shoes–yes, I’m a living clichĂ©–but I couldn’t say no to this top. Basically, if it’s gray and it’s a hoodie, I’ll buy it. Isn’t the top pretty?


Chick of the Week–Fluvia Lacerda

29 Dec

This is Brazilian plus size model Fluvia Lacerda. She was a nanny first before she was discovered in a New York City bus by a MODE magazine editor who suggested she should be a plus size model. Fluvia rocks some curves to be proud of, for sure. I wonder, would Fluvia mind if I call her one beautiful fat chick? Check out Fluvia’s online portfolio for more gorgeous images.

What are the cultural differences between Brazil and the United States when it comes to body image?
For starters, Brazil is ranked the number one country in plastic surgery procedures in the world. For many years we held the number one ranking in diet pill consumption as well, but we recently lost that position to the USA. I think that alone speaks volumes.

Read a great interview with Fluvia here.

Why aren’t we seeing more women like Fluvia in mainstream media and fashion? I think if we did, the anxiety so many women feel about their bodies would vanish.

Plus Size Vintage Dresses in Los Angeles

28 Dec

If you’re trying to find plus size vintage dresses in Los Angeles, fear no more. VivaFat is here to help.

Vintage Dress

40s Glamour Dress Lula RED


Stop Staring! creates sexy, but classy, curve hugging, American made reproductions of  vintage pieces and rockabilly clothes. If you know the TV show “Mad Men” you get an idea for their style.

Honestly, I loved browsing through their store and apparently, and they have images to prove it, Hollywood’s celebs love their vintage dresses as well! The prices are moderate, you’ll be able to find a plus size vintage inspired dress for under $150.

Now for a bit of bad news: their vintage dresses are only available up to a  size 18, however they do offer a few plus size vintage dresses up to size 26. (Call them toll free at 877-627-1480 if you need help finding the right style or size.)

They are located at 14023 Paramount Blvd, Paramount, CA. 90723. Open Monday-Friday 9am – 4pm. If you don’t happen to live in LA, you also have the option of checking them out and buying online. Happy splurging! (Apart from the gorgeous vintage dresses they have super cute plus size swimwear!)

Isn’t the red vintage dress above gorgeous?
