LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!

Check out this article from cocoandcreme.com  about some FABULOUS Plus-Size designers. Although the article entitled “Top Plus-Size Fashion Designers” does list several fantastic designers, I am shocked to see they neglected to add Yuliya Raquel of Igigi.com. I have rocked several of her designs personally. I have to say they are comfortable, sexy, and very flattering. I’m not the only one. Others who have worn her wears include Jill Scott and Nikki Blonsky.

However out of the designers listed one my personal favorites is Tennille White! This sista’s designs have been gracing Chicago streets for a while and after seeing her gorgeous frocks on BET’sRip the Runway 2011″ I was begging for more. Also featured is Monif C. She is definitely a veteran on the plus-size fashion scene and her swimwear this season is simply gorgeous. I mean, stop-and-stare gorgeous. So I hope you all with check out all the designers sites, (I definitely did!) and pick up a few items for yourself.

Happy Shopping,

G

As promised I’m coming back to you with a new song of the month. “Shame” is one of the many amazing tracks on Miss Jill Scott’s highly anticipated new album “The Light of the Sun” *.  Now, I’m not sure how many of you are into Neo-Soul, but I have been a fan of Neo-Soul and Miss Jill Scott‘s since I was little. Not only is she a Plus-Size Diva in every sense of the word, but she is an amazingly inspirational woman. Her talent is vast and widespread: Actress, Poet, Singer and Mother, Miss Jill Scott has been a staple in the black community and in directly the Plus-size community. And “Shame” does not lack Miss Scott’s usual style and confidence. The song, which features Eve and The A Group, is a spirited testament of ferocity in a woman who knows her worth. Thus, it is our Featured Song of the Month. Check out the video below, and listen to other tracks from “The Light of the Sun” on youtube.

* “The Light of the Sun” drops June 21.
