Cynthia’s Article from the Huffington Post: Plus-Size Fashion Shouldn’t Lack Style

Allistyle two looks

ShareI recently wrote a post on my site, DelectablyChic!, about the recent Allistyle show at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. This was not a response to the Toronto Standard piece about the models being laughed at, but an honest review about the show itself. It was not an all-rosy review, which was apparently something that I was expected to write. I [...]

Sweater Weather (Plus Help Me Choose Sunglasses)

This week’s IFB Project is to put together one’s best “sweater weather style.”  Well, this isn’t best-best in terms of prettiness, but it’s one of my favourite weekend outfits and a look that I’ve gone with for at least two or three ears – just about as long as I’ve had this cardigan – or [...]

A Birthday Dinner or Greta Constantine Worn Two Ways
