Fatshion Friday: The Detroit Fatshion Exchange



It finally happened! After years of chatting and months of planning the Detroit Fatshion Exchange happened last Saturday. THere were a few bumps but over all I think it was a resounding success! So many amazing ladies and gents came out and we had a ton of clothes to swap! Thanks to Ethan Cronkite from the trumbulplex we even had a DJ!

We learned so much, sometimes the only way you can figure out what's going to work and what isn't is just by doing it. Next year I think it will be bigger and better than ever! We've started spreading the word and people are excited. I can not wait to do it again.

Wish I Wore: Girls Night

Girls Night



I think there might be nothing I enjoy more then spending a night with the girls. For us that usually means dinner (buffett?) and shopping! I need an outfit that is going to be super comfortable when I inevitably eat too much delicious food. I actually already own those jeans and love them, I wear em to work all the time. The tunic is one of a series that modcloth has, they all look so airy and comfy, I'm dying to get one!

What do you guys do for your night out with friends? Is it dinner or shopping or do you hit the club?

Ladies Night! The Green Brain Girl Party

This weekend was full to bursting with fun things! Saturday night was the now annual Green Brain Comics girl party! This wonderful event is made to help encourage women to get to the store and check out new books. There was a selection of lady fronted comics to check out, as well as a raffle, snacks and button making! I love this event, I wish it could be monthly!



If you live in the Metro Detroit area and you're a lady then Green Brain is a store you need to check out. There are so many times I've been in there and girls out number men. The staff is so incredibly nice and helpful and if you don't know where the start with comics they have some great insights. When I started going in there two years ago I only knew that I wanted to read Hawkeye. Now my pull box is always full of something, and none of it is Hawkeye. Comics have been such a wonderful part of my life now, and I owe a lot of that to these people. Thank you Green Brain! See you Wednesday!

Dreaming of Satchels - Cambridge Satchel Company


Do you ever become so obsessed with something you can think of little else? It that something ever an item of clothing? I hope so! Otherwise I think I might have a problem. You see, I've become totally 100% obsessed with the Cambridge Satchel Companies seasonal colours bag (for men, but who cares).

what may have been my reaction to discovering it came in dark green now

I've wanted one of these bags for ages. A girl at school had one that just felt amazing and sturdy. I'm totally having fantasies of me walking to class with this bag and feeling tre cool. In reality it will be me running to class with unbrushed hair and probably coffee on my shirt but who cares! A girl can dream right?

Do any of you have a cambridge satchel company bag? What do you think?

This week has been so fun! I hope you guys had a great week and have fun things coming up. I'm really looking forward to some resting though! Lately it's felt like I've been go go go. I'd like a little time to just unwind and clean my house!

This week I posted about ...
Link Love: 
  • This baby dance party lifts my heart so much. I want to wake up every morning to cute babies having a dance party for me.
  • These kids photographed in adult poses is so sweet but also sad to me? I can't really explain it.
  • Rad Fat Vegan has an awesome post on Freezer Smoothie Packs. I need to start doing this! I love smoothies but I am generally much too lazy to make them daily. This would help me so much!

Fatshion Friday - Movie Date!



It feels like 84 years since the last time I posted a fatshion friday! That obvi needs to change, and what better way than with this crazy cute dress I got at the bananas Macy's in new york! The brand is Maison Jules, which I hadn't seen before but you know I'll be looking for again. I got the sandals there as well, apparently I had already been coveting them and forgot because I definitely sent a link to them to Bethany! It must have been fate that I found them again.

I'm wearing this outfit tonight on my movie date. The fella and I are going to see Vertigo! It's one I haven't seen before and I'm really excited to see a classic like that in the theatre. We're lucky enough to have a local theatre that always plays classic movies and at a super cheap price. This summer they've been playing Hitchcock classics. I'm a little bummed we missed 'The Birds' but I bet Vertigo will be awesome! It's going to be an exciting weekend, Saturday I'm heading to Cleveland for a little family photo shoot and to visit my favorite plus size shop Re/Dress.

What are you guys up to? Big plans? Doesn't it feel like summer is just rushing by!
