Plus Size Outfit – Gray Sweater Two Ways

Remember when I shared my fall haul from Nordstrom and I mentioned being obsessed with a certain sweater? And then I mentioned again in my fall uniform post that I now had it in four colors? Well, I have taken to wearing them with EVERYTHING. I’m desperately trying to restrain myself from buying the last […]

Skincare Junkie Spills Her Secrets!

I’ve been promising this skincare post since I posted this image and on Instagram back at the beginning of May…. It is no secret that I’m totally obsessed with skincare. I’ve written about it a few times, along with some posts about my favorite makeup products and looks. The last time I wrote about skin […]

Plus Size Outfit – Fall Fashion Preview

I have made it no secret that I am dying for it to be fall weather here in Austin! I know, I know…… it’s not going to cool down until Halloween at the earliest. But a girl can dream, right? In my fall shopping post, I shared some sweaters that I was borderline obsessed with […]

Plus Size Outfit – Black and Gray and Breaking Rules

Before I start this ridiculously cute outfit post, I’d like to send a very big THANK YOU out in the world to all of the kind folks that read and responded to my last post. It’s not always easy to put super personal stuff out there, but the kind words made it all worth it. […]

Living The Scarred Life

If you are into YouTube, then you’ve probably seen the insanely personal and painful series that Shane Dawson did with Jeffree Star. If you haven’t watched it, go and watch it. I think it’s safe to say that Shane Dawson is creating the most compelling TV right now. I hope Netflix or Amazon jumps on […]

Plus Size Outfit – Latina For Life

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 […]

Fall Shopping and Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shenanigans

I’m not sure how the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale got me so good this year. Maybe it’s because I did some in-store shopping with my shoe guy (go see Carlos AKA Cardi C at Nordstrom in The Domain!), or maybe it’s because their sale items seemed to be tailored to my exact needs. Either way, I […]

Plus Size Outfit – Being Boss and Being Modest

Before we talk about this Boss outfit (spoiler alert: IT SAYS BOSS), I want to talk for a hot minute about being modest. I consider myself a pretty modest dresser. I like my hemlines to be below my fingertips when my arms are at my sides, I don’t do super low cut stuff or spaghetti […]

Plus Size Outfit | Flowers Everywhere

Real talk, friends. Being photographed in the dress in this outfit was STRESSFUL for me! Bodycon is generally not my thing, even with a fun open, flowy cardigan that has flowers everywhere. But I love my blue bodycon dress, and I love the flowy cardigan, and I especially love the shoes! So I sucked it […]
