It has become apparent living in South Florida that I will never  have the need to wear fur and it upsets me sometimes. I  have loved the idea of fun and colorful fur during winter/fall since forever. Is it just me or does fur make you feel classy as well? I  have noticed several sites stepping up to plate and catering to curvy women and their desire to stay relevant and up to date on the latest trends. You know there was a time not to long along when we couldn't get more than one bathing suit choice at forever 21. I am grateful that some vendors and retailers have heard our complaints and make substantial change.

Here are my current fur obsessions I spotted one at forever 21 but it didn't last too long. It was sold out before I could make to my purse to get my debit card. If you purchase some of these coats today most are on sale for 20% to 40% off for Cyber Monday.

   When I usually write the blog post "someone you should know" it usually involves someone I've never met but admire from a distance. That would be the case up for this lovely young lady  until FFF Week 2013 when I had the pleasure of meeting her in person. I've always admired her classy demeanor and  her daily looks from natural hair inspirations to detailed body type information. I absolutely adore her and within a few minutes of visiting her blog you will too! 

I reached out to Kim of Naturally Fashionable to ask her a few questions about her love of a fashion and here's what she had to say:

1. What does FASHION mean to you?  Fashion is truly a form of
self-expression.  Your clothing reveals who you are before you ever
speak a word.

2. What are some of your favorite trends that are happening right now?
I am loving colored denim, floral prints, and the neon trend.

3. What are your 3 favorite hot spots to hit and find haute pieces?
 I shop everywhere, but my favorite places are H&M, Dorothy Perkins, and ASOS.

4. What trends do you love that mostly describe and inspire your style?
The "Ladylike" trend most inspires me because I would describe my
style as classic.  I love my clothes to have a tailored look and fit
my curves perfectly.
    5. What are 3 things in your closet that you can NOT live without?
I truly cannot live without a great pair of fitted jeans, a sharp
blazer, and accessories.

6. What tips can you give  readers on how to achieve stylish looks?
I would say make sure that you understand your body type.  Do you have
a hourglass, straight, or pear-shaped figure?  Questions like this
must be answered before you can identify your style and what type of
clothing will look best on your body.

7. Who do you look up to in the fashion industry? And who are your top
3 most fashionable celebs?
I really look up to designers like Michael Kors and Rachel Roy.  They
design clothing that correspond with my taste and style in clothing.
I also admire the style of Kerry Washington, Nicole Richie, and Sarah
Jessica Parker.  They all wear timeless pieces.

I have read recent articles of Rev. Al Sharpton finally shedding some light on why he decided to lose weight and give up his infamous love for fried food. I'm shocked to read he used NO surgery, no pills or gimmicks for that matter. I was more so shocked to read what Rev. Sharpton's consumes on a daily basis.

 I have recently become intrigued with taking on a healthier lifestyle but for me I love options and Sharpton's diet does nothing for my desire to have healthy and funky takes on southern treats.  I don't think it's fair to limit your self to eat the same thing every single day for the rest of your life. it's my opinion but I wonder could this be the new "IT" Diet of people wanting to loose massive amounts of weight without going under the knife.

As you know I invite all my followers from all of my social media outlets to email me with either topics, confessions or a simple hello. In all honesty most emails are typical inquiries about clothing or hair but every once in awhile a email sparks my interest. I must admit I'm impressed at  this readers ability to be  transparent with his feelings and his struggle. I logged into my Mac Book with a cup of fresh brewed coffee and read for the first 30 minutes to an hour of my day. I scan threw subject lines of emails looking for nothing in particular when one hits me like a ton of bricks: I'm a Jock and I'm NOT suppose to like fat girls. I open it instantly both intrigued and interested to see what he meant exactly by NOT supposed to, as if it's sin or he will be stoned. I will be honest I'm frustrated with his statement at first. In time I've learned to listen to the entire story and really give people a chance to explain themselves.  So the email is as follow I have changed Names and Locations Just to protect this young mans image and Identity. 


I'm Kevin* and I live In Los Angeles land of the Rodeo Drive and Where Everyone is faking like their somebody but really arent. I've playe football my entire life and I'm currently in college trying to persue a football. I know every kid has that dream of going to NFL some of them make but alot of us don't. In my case I think I have a pretty good chance I'm not saying I will be a 1st Round Draft Pick but I do think I pretty decent. I first started looking at your fb page because you posted pictures of plus size women in a light I had never seen. I mean honestly going to a prodominatly white school hips and curves are very far and inbetween. As a Football Player I'm introduced to all kinds of women and everytime I set up on a blind date I'm disappointed. I'm always matched with the typical "IT" girl. I have had a desire for full figured women as far back as I can remember but I've always been ashamed. I admitted only once in high school when the guys started talking about girls and what they liked. I openly admited having a crush on Lisa* a curvy chinky eyed, carmel, and thick younglady who was the yearbook editor and came to almost every game. I got clowned for it they erupted in laughter and my new nickname became chubby chaser since then. When school ended and we are went out own wasys I was free from being called "chubby chaser". I felt as if I had done something so wrong by admitting that I like fuller women. In college now i stay clear of plus size women careful to not make eye contact or be overly friendly. I think most of the time Plus size girls may think because i'm a athlete I'm not interested in them  and don't even bother. The truth is I love them but I am afraid of the backlash or taunts I will receive for liking a BBW. I don't even watch regular porn (sory if this TMI) I always watch BBW women. My Question to you or even followers is as follows:  1. Am I alone in this thinking? 2. How do I get over this fear of being judged?

Thank you!
