We have heard some rumors…so, Stay tuned for The Learning Channel’s three-part series, “Big Sexy” Reality TV show!

The show, which is scheduled to debut August 30, 2011 will feature plus size fashionistas Nikki, Heather, Audrey Leslie and Tiffany as they strive to challenge stereotypes, shift perceptions and show that they are ready to take on the NY Fashion World!

You’ll be able to see what happens in their personal relationship and professional lives as they take on such jobs as designing clothes, arranging photo shoots and walk the runway!

I am looking forward to seeing  just how these women are portrayed!

How about you?

This coming Fall, cut, treatment and denim in all sorts of colors will be essential.


Denim for work is a going to be a very popular as we will see lightweight denim with a straight leg, like a trouser jean, and in all color washes.  Pair your trouser jean with a silk blouse or a cotton tweed jacket for a complete professional and totally polished look.


For evening,  use a black jean such as this black, Boot cut Contrast Stitch Jean from NYDJ.  Consider denim with tummy panels and higher waistbands provide extra support and control.  A wider leg also is popular but make sure it is not too wide.   A pointed toe shoe puts the finishing touch on your after-hours outfit.

Not so sure about black denim, try a simulated black denim look with these Neon Buddha Contrast Stitch Jean?

Yes, you can wear Skinny Jeans…IF.. you are larger on top than the bottom, use longer shirts or jackets such as this Caribe jacket to cover the widest parts of your legs.

Be on the lookout this coming season for the best in Denim. You will be so excited to see what’s in store!

We were so excited to hear the news this morning!

While I hesitate to point out that these actresses are considered plus size because their talent is a much more relevant thing to discuss, I am encouraged that they are included in the league of talent and not excluded because of their size.  I take it as a sign of acceptance and better things to come.

Melissa McCarthy was nominated for her role as Molly on Mike & Molly, Kathy Bates for her role as Harriet on Harry’s Law and Christina Hendricks for her role on Mad Men.

Television shows clearly reflect our society’s attitudes and these nominations are a coup for these talented actresses.

Congratulations to these three talented  actresses.  What are you going to wear? Can’t wait to see!
