It’s “Fashion Friday” on the Blog and I am so excited to share you with you my Buffalo Shopping look book video featuring one of my favorite purchases, the striped cigarette skirt from Torrid.
I wanted to highlight how endless the options are for this skirt and how to get more out of your favorite items by mixing and matching textures, colours and items out from your very on closet.
Please take a look and feel free to leave your comment with any questions, you may have. All links to each outfit will be provided in the description box of the video and below right here on this post.

Eeeeepppp! It is Spring Time lovelies, and pastels are everywhere. I will be honest when I saw these colours starting to appear on the runway and then in stores earlier this year, I was very reluctant to try. Truth is a lot of “90’s” inspired fashion has made a second round over the past few years and I’m in my EARLY (lol) Thirties and remember doing most if not all these trends in Junior High School. In my mind I was like “miss me with this please!”
I decided to let down my guard and embrance a few of these trends this year and so far i’m not disappointed. Wearing Pastels this time feels very feminine and pretty to me this time around. If you are still on the fence about this trend you can always mix it with denim, or a darker colour to off set the brightness of the hue pastel can give.
Here are a few examples and suggestions on how to wear your pastel colours this season:

It’s that time again, Model Monday!! At least one Monday a month I love to feature local or International Models in the Plus Size Fashion Industry to share their journey with my readers. Today we are featuring the lovely and beautiful Canadian Plus Model: Tierra Sedgemore.
Let’s see what she has to say about her experiences working in this industry;
Myself: What sparked your interest to start pursing a Modelling Career?
Tierra: I started modelling after having my children ..I gained a lot of weight and now had some pretty voluptuous curves. I was feeling more beautiful and sexy then ever. I had started to see a world of plus size models and decided to give it a try. I researched the agency’s in Toronto and went to the best one I could find B&M Models. I attended an open call and to my delight I was given a yes! They wanted to work with me.

Fashion Elites and others who claim to be the “Authority” in Plus Size Fashion. The next time you choose to tell people what to wear…do us all a favour. ..don’t!!
Now I know this may be a bit much coming from a self proclaimed “Plus Size Fashion Blogger” such as myself, but I had to address the disgusting display of elitism I have been witnessing lately.
I recently came across a certain social media publication that had an offical list of Fashion Trends to leave behind, the peplum was one of them. Listen I can’t lie, I myself am over the Peplum trend (which is ironic as that is what I am wearing for this post, lol). But I also understand that this Plus Size fashion movement is still evolving.
Even though I as an individual my feel liberated enough to launch a Blog, pose for pictures and pronounce myself an expert in this industry, it is not the case for the average woman still trying to find herself among this movement. Especially my Canadian Sisters.
The average woman still deals with insecurities of body image and acceptance. To be honest it took me a long time to get here and to be honest, I still struggle from time to time.
So let’s put down our fashion snobbery and be kind to the people who support us. That means if one of my supporters puts on a peplum anything and she feels beautiful enough to use the hashtag: #candistyle I will support her.
Personal style is just that, personal. It’s a journey which one is always evolving (including myself) so if your peplum, mesh, tulle dress makes you feel beautiful then put it on and be You.
OK *Rant Over*

I grew up in a Christian household, and Easter was probably if not more celebrated than Christmas. The importance of your Sunday Easter Dress was a ritual in itself. I remember my Mother taking me to the local seamstress months in advance to prepare for Easter Sunday, usually Lace was the fabric of choice.
As I get older and I begin to begin my own practices in my household, Easter still holds that same valuable significance. So you had to imagine my glee when I came across this floral perfection from IGIGI. It’s no surprise this Designer understands the Curvy body and always rises to the occasion to create great quality dresses that always with out a doubt compliment our curves.
From the wrap detail along the bust line area, to the intricate tulip hem detail at the end of the dress, I will say I felt like that that little girl 20 plus years ago in her lace confection on Easter Sunday Morning sitting next to her Mother in Church.
In this dress I felt nothing but feminine in floral.
Here is my video review of the “Dakota” dress on my Youtube Channel: (HERE) …Take a looksie and feel free to share and comment *smiles*
