Brands I love: Domino Dollhouse!

Sunglasses & necklace are Domino Dollhouse
Since everyone always asks me "Where do you shop?" I'm going to start doing reviews on my favorite brands- Starting with Domino Dollhouse! Yes, I happen to model for them, but that's not why I love them. For the longest time I craved fun fashion in MY size (22 US), and when Domino Dollhouse launched, all of my dreams became a reality. Not only do they have one of a kind, fun prints and designs, but it's all made in America. They do carry other brands, so make sure to check the site out when ordering :) Another thing I love is that their clothing is true plus size clothing, not junior plus, so you know that what you are ordering will be true to size.

.Stripped: Learning to love a fat body...naked.

While packing for my shoot tomorrow I started playing dress up in my new lingerie from Hips & Curves. I couldn't help but realize how much I love adorning my body with garments I used to fear. Frankly, I have always loved to be naked & lacked modesty at home, but never with a partner until my current one that is. The bigger I became, whether through having a son, trauma, etc- the thought of someone seeing my body, at what I used to consider "my worst" nearly brought me to tears.

Now I cannot imagine a life without cage bras (like the photos below taken tonight) corsets, negligee's, or dare I say... bare. How did I get there, to a place of lingerie and self awareness heaven?
