Recently, while watching My Fair Wedding by David Tutera, I saw these amazing dresses that are made to fit everyone by an awesome company called Two Birds! Yes… I said everyone, which means us curvy girls too! How many of you have either been in or seen bridesmaid dresses that gave you the chills, well you can kiss those days goodbye. These dresses are truly a dress you can have forever and wear again and again. I was helping with a wedding this past weekend and the beautiful bridesmaids in the wedding were wearing none other than Two Birds bridesmaid dresses. I love how life works! I recognized them and asked if I could sneak a shot of the lovely ladies in them! Now, I can speak from personal experience, these dresses are not only gorgeous, but they do fit all sizes and they look amazing on. I am happy to report that the ladies wearing them said they were super happy with them and that they were even comfortable! Bonus!!
There are so many ways to wear these dresses. The options seem endless. On the Two Birds website, it says: “One dress, over 15 ways to wrap, wear it again and again”. These dresses can be as simple or fabulous as you want. You can accent them with a broach or you can wear them plain. They can be strapless, halter and so much more! The dresses are timeless, flowy, elegant and fantastic! In one word I would describe Two Birds dresses and designs as stunning.
Can you believe it’s that time of year again? That special time in October when all the monsters, characters and comedians come out to play! Yup, you guessed it… It’s Halloween costume hunting season. Time to start your search for the best Halloween costume and of course, we all want options. That is why Big Girl Runway did some research for you, making this Halloween shopping experience easier for curvy women…men too! Whether you want to go with ghoulish or goblins, superheroes or princesses, we’ve got you covered.
Torrid, Lane Bryant and Spirit Halloween offer a great selection of costumes. Spirit Halloween offers a large selection of costumes including: Dark Alice, Pirate, Geisha, Poodle Skirt Set, Nun and much, much more. The pricing for men and women’s costumes ranges from about $20 and up. Spirit offers reasonable pricing and lots of options to choose from with sizes up to 3XL.
I’m sure you are all aware of News Anchor, Jennifer Livingston’s amazing and powerful response to her “fat mail” (see video link below). You have probably seen her video about her opportunity to set the record straight, saying: “I am much more than a number on a scale”. I, for one, am impressed with her ability to stand up to a bully and not only call him out, but with how Livingston turned a negative situation into a positive and inspiring one. She could have hidden from this, but she didn’t.
As Jennifer Livingston said, being in the public eye or putting yourself out there brings this on. The fact that someone can think it is OK to judge another so harshly and treat him or her as if they are not human or without feelings has always blown my mind. No one is perfect. We all have flaws. That’s what makes us beautifully unique. I know from my own experience in news that it can be a very critical microscope that we walk under. Sometimes you have that feeling of not being able to win because you either look too young, too thin, too curvy, too fat, too old and so on. The opinions of others can leave you feeling defeated. I have seen the affects the business can have on people of all walks of life and from all different backgrounds, so this story struck a chord with me. This is not to say that all news is bad. No. News is still something I hold dear to my heart, but it does open the gateway to unwanted and cruel feedback. Those who want to be on air can be subjected to harsh criticism that can be delivered in a way that makes you feel less that worthy.
