Summer Style At Fashion To Figure


When the Cherryhill, NJ location of Fashion to Figure (FTF) opened 5 years ago I was super curious. Lets face it, as a curvy or plus size gal figuring out where to shop can be exhausting. Trust me, even as a fashion stylist I get that. So when a store/brand that promises to meet my fashion needs opens its doors nearby I’m definitely going to pay them a visit.

Honestly I have to say that it wasn’t love at first “sight” with the brand 5 years ago. But as Marcus Aurelius says “Everything is in a state of metamorphosis.” That statement couldn’t be more true for Fashion To Figure.  Over the past half decade everything has changed about the brand from the look of their stores to the collections to customer experience. 

Everything is in a state of Metamorphosis 

Recently, I was asked by the Cherryhill store director to come back in for a formal re-introduction to the brand. And I have to say not only am I excited to work with the brand but ecstatic to rock it all summer.

This time of year I’m all about rocking easy pieces and soft basics. And although I’m no longer 100% plus size I’ll always have super sized curves on both the top and bottom of my body. But shopping at FTF just made me feel sexy not “out of bounds” or uncomfortable.

Summer 16 Fashion & Beauty Must Haves

Philly Bra Lady Summer Must Haves


Its almost Summer and of course I’m happy about the warmer temps. I’ve already hosted a  memorial day bbq. But over the past year or so I have acquired some of the best products for the sun, beach and the cray… of summer.  Now I’m sharing them with you. Here are my summer must have for 2016, bras included. 

  • 1. White Jeans– Yes they are a must. I don’t care what your size or how much (or little booty you have) but your curves in some white jeans. Ladies check out my faves here.
  • 2. Red Nail Polish I only wear 4 colors on my nails. White, Nude, Black & Thrill In Brazil by OPI. Get some in yo life!
  • 3. Moisturizer– My new favorite sunscreen for my face. Take a deep breathe with SPF is light, cooling and non-greasy. Philosophy got it right!
  • 4. Tinted Moisturizer – Holy Grail Product! Laura Mercier is an award winning tinted moisturizer. What I LOVE about it, color match and range, light/airy, medium coverage and it has spf. Summer 
  • 5. Sports Bra– If you are like me you workout year round. Generally speaking you should buy a new bra (or 2) every season. Sports bras are one of the most important bras you should own. So get a new sports bra ladies
  • 6. High Waist Swimsuit– I have belly jelly. So if you are like me then a highwaist swim suit is for you. Check out my tips on swimwear in this video
  • 7. Waterproof SunscreenI was introduced to Clarins about 2 years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. I loathe heavy sunscreen but i’m serious about sun protection. This is THE BEST sunscreen around. And I love that is in a non aerosol spray bottle. 
  • 8. Jellies– An Old School Classic. Jellies are cute soft rubber sandals. They are usually colorful and comfy but these ones from Henri Bendel super chic.
