Happy March, everyone!

Happy Saturday, Glammies! Let’s break some rules, shall we?
We’re all familiar with ‘No White After Labor Day’ – it’s one of those fashion sayings that has always been there for some reason. I wanted to look into it and figure out how this nonsense became such a popular rule.

Apparently, when I do color, I do ALL the color. I fell in love with this plus size maxi dress from UK retailer SimplyBe. I’m not one to wear maxi dresses often (but that’s a goal for summer 2015! More…
