Plus Size styles :)

I was at work today and I made a couple of new friends :), lovely people! Super excited to get to know them! In one of my conversations a pretty lady asked me what I thought would look good on her, she said she has a hard time finding things that fit well on her. She is plus size and wanted some help, so I told her I would give her some info, go shopping with her to help find her styles and post on my bloggie as well :) I really believe that we as women have to love ourselves. I believe in being healthy, but while we improve ourselves we must love ourselves enough to be confident in who we are as women and find the time to look great! :) I am not a plus size but I can understand the frustration plus size women go through, and so I decided to find sites you ladies can shop at and look amazing!!!

Alright so the only website I didn't provide was :) go check it out and see what you like! They have great sales too! Here are some fashion tips :)

1:jacket and pants or a skirt in the same color worn with a splash of color near the face elongates your profile and draws attention to your facial features. Although you may have been taught that black was your color because of its slimming effects, reserve it for that gorgeous little black dress instead.

2:Choose skirts and dresses that fall below the knees, unless of course gorgeous legs are your strong suit. Pair them with hose and shoes in the same hue for a slenderizing effect. Avoid pleated skirts that make your hips look bigger.

3: Wear open jackets or blazers to create a vertical line, but beware of long jackets if you are short. These make the legs look shorter and plumper. A hemline just below the hips works well.

4:Straight-leg or flared pants draw attention away from the thighs, but should be well fitted in the waist and hips.

5:Wear scoop or V-neck shirts to emphasize the neck, making it appear longer. Longscarves draped around the neck and allowed to hang freely are a great way to add vibrant color near the face.

6:A good support bra is a must for plus-size women. It improves your appearance, posture and sense of self-confidence, and clothes will fit better as well.

7:Avoid clothing with large bold patterns. If you prefer patterns, choose medium to small designs in colors that complement your complexion, hair color and eyes.

8:Although it may be tempting to buy that shirt that is a little too small or one that gives you plenty of room to move, it is important that any clothing you choose fits well. Try several styles until you find one that fits your body. If clothes bind when you move, try a larger size.

Remember ladies to love who you are no matter what! be confident, walk with confidence and a smile :) Try these tips and styles I showed you and see which style you are :) enjoy beautiful ladies, I will be posting more styles up next week! enjoy, xoxo

Life changing...from eating meat to becoming a vegetarian :)

A couple weeks ago I decided to become a vegetarian after watching Earthling ( a documentary) ...Powerful stuff I tell ya.. Anyway, as I sat there watching this and I seriously cried the whole time, I understood a lot of information that made me realize a lot of things about life, animals, humans and well, I believe we are all earthlings-an inhabitant of the earth. I made a commitment that day that I would not eat meat EVER again, and that I WOULD not wear leather or fur... I believe in this, and so I stand up for it. I truly believe that when we become passionate about something we must be committed and stand up for what we believe in. So yes I wear fake fur and leather--and I am proud to say that! :) Here are a couple vegan shoes I found for a great price! They are amazing and so in the trend! Enjoy beautiful ladies, stand up for who you are and what you believe in! We are all different, and that is a GREAT thing! Love ya, chicas!(ladies in spanish) haha. xoxo

Lets get to know these amazing ladies, here is their story!  enjoy beautiful ladies and friends! Check out their amazing creations and shop for your own eco-friendly pieces at 
We (Julianka and Kristie Danielle) were arch-nemesis at the start of our college days.  It wasn’t until Julianka studied abroad, that we became friends through our pen pal letters, which unraveled our mirrored interests, love for creativity, green living and our dreams of one day opening a vintage clothing boutique.  Soon after, we began collecting unique vintage pieces and designing sustainable jewelry over tea, childhood stories and dreams sprinkled with our imagination.  Fontain Street in Philadelphia is where we cemented our friendship. The number 9 represents Julianka’s divine number and is associated with Kristie Danielle's’s astrological planet, the moon.  Together, 9th and Fontain represents “a single soul dwelling in two bodies”, green living, friendship and peace. 
Our online boutique specializes in vintage clothing and handmade jewelry crafted from sustainable materials.  When designing our jewelry, we combine modern and vintage pieces to craft unique, one of a kind jewels.  We believe that it is our social responsibility to eliminate the environmental impact of factory produced clothing.  Thus, our philosophy is to reduce waste by shopping vintage because vintage shopping equals sustainable shopping.  9th and Fontain will continue to illustrate the evolution of our friendship while we continue to connect with other women and promote individuality. It is a reflection of us and our personal style at one point in our lives. So get ready to get lost in timeless threads, never-fading fabrics, and nostalgic memories of your grandmother’s long lost wardrobe.
