Holiday Parties

It's finally December! Christmas is coming and that means parties galore; ugly Christmas sweater parties, office holiday parties, brunches with friends, dinners and opening presents with family. While all of these parties are equally fun, each call for its own dress code, and luckily I have found some amazing style suggestions for each one.

1. Holiday Office Party
Holiday office parties are a chance for you to let loose and celebrate the past year with your colleagues and friends. While there is nothing wrong with keeping things business casual, you can always add a little extra something to your appearance by choosing a gorgeous party dress, like this wine-colored ruched velvet dress from Macy's. The knee length is perfect for a corporate event, and the ruched waistline draws attentions to your curves without revealing too much. Velvet is the ultimate winter fabric; warm, luxurious, and oh so touchable, it elevates this amazing dress to winter perfection.
2. Ugly Sweater Party
This is my favorite of all the potential holidays parties; the ugly sweater party. It doesn't matter if your style veers to saucy or sweet, a well-crafted ugly sweater is guaranteed to get you laughs and admiring looks. I love www.Tipsyelves.com for all things ugly sweater related. This website has a size and style for everyone, and their items are always well made.
3. Family Brunch or Dinner
This is the get-together that calls for cute and cozy, and a fun pair of leggings paired with a fashionably cozy sweater are just the thing. I like to go for a solid, neutral colored sweater so I can indulge in some more attention getting leggings.
4. Christmas Morning
I will admit to a great love of cozy pajamas, and I usually treat myself to a new pair every Christmas. Matchings Christmas pajamas can be a fun family tradition for Christmas morning, or a fun indulgence just for yourself. Old Navy has a great selection of pajamas in extended sizes that are adorable, affordable, and most importantly, warm.

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.

Light yourself a candle bright.
I'll you, if you will me invite
To dance within that gentle light."
