3 Curvy Girl Fashion Tips

Hello My Lovely Readers,

A lot of my friends and family ask me what my style is or where I get my clothes. I’m a plus sized girl and I used to find it so difficult to dress my body.

I am blessed with wide hips and a small waist so a majority of my life was spent wearing jeans with belts that would eventually make the crotch of every pair of jeans I had look like I was ruching them or I would get the weird gap in the back of my pants. Continue reading 3 Curvy Girl Fashion Tips

A Blending of Passions

Hello Lovelies,

It’s been quite the interesting week for me.

You know that one friend who always seems to have it together and knows exactly how to play at their strengths. Well my friend, Gabby, has finally convinced me start an Etsy Store.

It’s such a crazy thing to do. It’s a bit more work to get everything organized but so far so good.

All I have to say to you is…it’s a new year, If you have an idea or you have a dream…DO IT! Even if you fail or it doesn’t go exactly as you thought (which most of the time it doesn’t) at least you won’t have any regrets. 😀

Finished Product MJ

Feel free to check out my Etsy Store here.

If you are an Etsy seller or buyer some advice would be absolutely amazing!

Thanks a bunch guys 😀

One Year

In February of 2015 I was given the most amazing opportunity to spend a college semester abroad in Scotland. I was able to learn about some parts of the UK economy and  things that are affecting the fashion and retail world around us.

One of my final projects was to complete an entire line of clothing inspired by the Green Movement that is increasing in popularity around some parts of the world. Learning about some of the amazing brands and stores that are doing their part to preserve the planet made me feel like I could  try to do more. Upon arriving back in Canada I was determined to do something that would help not only the planet but also the way we look at fashion and clothing. After a week of thinking I felt completely defeated and even more lost. After watching the documentary The True Cost it sparked an idea.

I will not purchase one piece of clothing or accessories for an entire year.

At first I thought; how hard could that be? But then I realized just what I was telling myself I could not do. Shopping isn’t just an activity, but a huge part of my personality. How in the world would I every make it for one year? As I started the process of creating the rules for my challenge I realized this could be so much more.

Materialist Rehab is not just a No Shopping Challenge, it’s my way of protesting the horrible treatment of those who slave over sewing machines in hot and dangerous warehouses to create clothing for people that consider themselves better than the rest. It’s a page dedicated to the art of fashion not just the income from it. This page is also my way of showing that clothing doesn’t have to be a one season only item; almost anything can be recycled and made into something new and possibly even better.
