Shopping When You’re Plus Size

      See that picture above? That was me, yesterday, trying to find something to wear for tomorrow’s Blogon conference. As you can see, it wasn’t the most successful trip. This blouse was a size 20 so that I could try and fit the girls in, but as you can see, it’s baggy around […]

Window Shopping & Blogging Friends
