Here's my first post, it was my birthday so ignore the cheesy smile ( it was probably all the mojitos and sangria that I imbibed) and the very pouffy hair. Yes I know that pouffy isn't a word but it correctly describes the state of my hair on a regular basis. Once summer comes I'm sure you will see many posts with rants about the state of my hair and the never ending search for products to tame the frizzy mop of curls that sits atop my head.
As for the outfit, it was a gorgeous day and I wanted to show a little, okay a lot of leg. I don't think mini skirts are just for skinny legs as you can see as long as your legs have a nice shape I say go for it! Gray has become a staple of my wardrobe,and I wanted an excuse to wear my gray fishnet stockings one more time before the heat and humidity of summer hits the city and that's impossible.

I've wanted to start a blog since forever. I love fashion and all things related, so I constantly search for new sites, forums ,and blogs to indulge my love. While I've found many enjoyable haunts very few are geared to women like me. A curvy girl with breasts, legs and a butt! I have found this one site that I highly recommend http://toofatforfashion.blogspot.com/ but it doesn't chronicles one person's journey ( which may be a good thing). I just wanted to share my struggles and triumphs as a curvy girl trying to find her place in world where one of the major requirements is a small size. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bitter because while I've always had curves my overall frame was quite petite. Age , laziness and love of a good brownie changed all that but my love of fashion never waned. So before I lose you to my tendency ramble. Please embark upon this journey with me, the road may get a little bumpy but there will always be chocolate assuage the pain.
