Plus Size Fall Outfit Roundup

I am slightly ashamed to admit that I have a legit backlog of outfits! Life, work, and holiday madness have seeped in and made me fall absurdly behind on my outfit posting. So I figured we’ll put them all in one post together! Settle in and get a drink because this is going to move […]

Taking Your Work (And Yourself) Seriously

Picture it; Austin, December 2012. I had been laid off a month earlier and was desperately trying to figure out what direction I wanted to go in my work life. I talked to a few people in my network and cobbled together a few clients. I told myself that if I wasn’t able to support […]

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that before I was Cathy Tilton, I was Cathy Benavides. And that last name was a very visible way to wear my Mexican heritage. Being Mexican is an integral part of who I am, and I am borderline obsessed with my culture and the history […]
