In a world where the slim and thigh-less, grace the covers of magazines, there are a slew of curvy girls who seize the day and slay on a daily basis. As curvy girl I sometimes find it difficult to find inspiration for putting together amazing outfits or even finding duds that fit because 70% of designers still haven’t caught up with the reality that exists. The average woman is a size 12 yet said size is hard to come by in retailers, but I digress in a world that seems resistant to the truth these ladies are my sheros in fashion. Make sure to follow them on social media as they will keep you in the know about where to go get an amazing rack of clothes.
First up is mentor in my head, this amazing Mom Boss Christina Brown, who beyond contrary belief is doing it all while looking like a fox. Love Brown Sugar her wildly successful blog was created to fill the void that exists on the world wide web when it comes to fashion bloggers. This heel loving mama gives me all the warm vibes with a mix of comfort and fashion, oh and she has the cutest babies.

Wow. My baby girl is 4 years old today and I want to cry in a corner because I don’t know WHERE the time went! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was making an announcement about her gender to all of you. And already she's growing up taller than a weed, getting sassy with me every morning when I refuse to let her wear a tutu to school, and making me laugh with her 262737th rendition of Frozen’s “Let It Go”. I love her with all my heart & soul. Check out more pics from our session with the super talented @crystalstewart_photo over at @babybrownsugarblog http://www.babybrownsugar.com 💕 #cadysfancy4th #babybrownsugar #lettertomydaughter #happybirthday
