Less to Love?

Wow. They really made y'all mad, didn't they? I knew some of our resident Brickhouses were steamed about seeing one of our faves Photoshop'd down to a size 6. But sounds like lots of other women aren't feeling this either.

Have we not followed the breath-of-fresh-air known as Jennifer Hudson? Did we not document her stylishness on and off the red carpet? So now, what would make anyone think that we'd like her more if they played with her picture on the cover of her self-titled debut album. Of course business is business. But is being an Academy award-winning actress, singer, and fashionista not enough?

Regardless, we still love her first single "Spotlight" which is in heavy rotation across the country. So she's definitely doing her thing and she always looks great. We just wish the industry would let her do it as who she is. The album is out September 30th.

A Brief Wedding Post on a Non-Wedding Blog

We just had to say this...
Guess what? Plus-size women are regular women!
Guess what else? Plus-size women get married! Stunning!
The fashion industry seems to have suddenly realized these simple truths and now many vendors are rushing to cater to plus-size and full-figure women. (Didn't we tell you that you were irresistable?) The good news is that all the different styles are represented. So whether brides are getting married in a grand hall or the town hall, there's something for everyone.

We were especially impressed with PlusSizeBridal, if only for the sheer volume of styles. There's no way we could do justice to the selection available. See many more styles at PlusSizeBridal.com

Jeans That Fit! Part 1: For the Curvy and Plus Sized

When was the last time you had a pair of jeans that really fit? I'm a self-professed denim addict, so I know all about the hits and misses that can come from trying to buy jeans that fit curves. But things are changing now that denim has become a wardrobe staple for nearly every segment of the population. Trouser and high-waist jeans are making a comeback, but low-rise jeans are still in vogue. Here are some of the jeans that promise to give you what you need, where you need it.
