“Participate in Fashion,” says Marcy Guevara!

MEET MARCY: TV Host & Plus Size Expert

She’s beautiful, witty and shares my love for The Oprah Show, cute shoes and getting women to open up and share their story!  In the latest SOS webisode, Marcy gives us her two-cents on the Dos & Don’ts for Plus Size Fashions.

GREAT GIVEAWAY!  Marcy is giving one lucky blogger/viewer a copy of the fabulous book, “How To Never Look Fat Again” by Charla Krupp.

You’ll never get dressed the same way again once you discover:
• Smart, easy ways to hide arm flap, a big bust, a muffin top, back fat, Buddha belly, a big booty, wide hips, thunder thighs and heavy calves—and that’s only half the book
• Which fabrics, colors and styles make women look fat
• Absolutely the best shades, shapes and brilliant buys to make the pounds invisible
• Clever solutions for special fashion situations—workout gear, evening wear and even swimsuits!
• Which products, fashions and services you shouldn’t waste your money on
• The top 10 tips that will make you look thinner by tonight!
So, if you’ve ever put on a piece of clothing and asked, “Does this make me look fat?” finally, here is the book that will answer your question.

Hmmm, can a woman’s arms be too ripped?

Hey SOS Vixens!

As many of us are in the quest to reach our goal weight and optimal fitness- how far is too far?  Can a woman get too ripped? 

Hmmmm?

In this candid,  behind-the-scenes webisode, Plus Size Expert Marcy Guevara and Makeup Artist Vio Meyners chat about whether or not female TV Hosts should reveal their bare arms on camera. They bring up how ripped Kelly Ripa’s arms are and if that makes her unrelatable to viewers.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?  COMMENT BELOW!

Here’s my two cents: 

I actually love a sexy, toned, muscular arm on a woman!  Over the years, I have gone through phases where I wanted really rock hard arms then decided I like the way yoga kept my arms long and lean without the bulk.  I gain muscle really easy and have to be careful with weights.  At the end of the day, we all have to be able to look at ourselves in the mirror and like that chick staring back at us.  Whether you prefer a more soft, womanly appearance or a strong, muscular look-  DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!   But, remember keeping our arms toned now will help how we look when we’re older.  You know the old arm wave and the bra overhang is not so pretty!

DON’T FORGET!  If you are subscribed to this blog, post a pic of yourself rockin’ your fave leopard print on the SOS facebook page and enter to win one of my fave leopard accessories!  Could be a scarf, belt, clutch…don’t miss out!

A DAY IN MY LIFE…

Hey SOS Sista’s,

I hope everyone is feeling Sassy, Stylish and Superfly today!   As I write this, I am gearing up for a fun girlie day of shopping and getting my hair done (honestly, I hate sitting in the salon chair) to get “purdy” for my B-day weekend coming up.    I have no clue what the festivities will be, but I know my honey and friends have something up their sleeve!   I want to hear how YOUR summer has been so leave a COMMENT BELOW and let us all know! (Hey, I made a rhyme)

In the latest webisode, I wanted to try something a little different and bought the newer version of the FLIP camera in HD.  That lil thing rocks!  Highly recommend you get one to record fun occasions with fam and friends!   They’re inexpensive and very user friendly.  Ok, back to the subject… I decided to tape my lovely Go-to-Girl, Vio Meyners in a typical day of ours.  We start with a workout, play in her closet, head to an audition, lunch and tape an SOS webisode with Marcy Guevara (coming soon!!). 

Just FYI, no- I do not go around looking this made up on a daily basis unless I have auditions or meetings!  The tomboy is still very alive in me and on most days, I’m sporting track pants and tennis shoes!  Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my life.  Let me know what ya think and if you would like to see more “reality show”style webisodes…

I get so excited every season to see what the latest & greatest styles will be!   Good thing for all of us FASHIONISTA’S, many of the trends we’ve been seeing since last Fall 2010 through Spring 2011 are the same.  Makes it easy on the wallet!  Get ready to shop your closet before hitting the stores.  You know me, I’m googoo gaga over all the LEOPARD print out right now and did purchase a smokin’ hot pair of leopard shoes. Could not resist.  PURRRR!  So,  if you have a leopard print piece, this is the season to ROCK IT!  

In fact, upload a photo of yourself rockin’ your leopard to the SOS facebook page and a winner will be chosen to win a VERY special prize – one of MY FAVE ACCESSORIES!   ONLY SUBSCRIBERS TO THIS BLOG ARE ELIGIBLE!

My Fave Quote This Week:
“Oftentimes, people allow the opinions of others to hold them back & water down their dreams. But, we have to realize that there will always be critics & naysayers in life. One of the most important things you can learn is that other people don’t have to believe in you in order for your dreams to come to pass. Other people don’t set the limits for your life — YOU DO! (Joel Osteen)

FLY HIGH!  xoTiff

WHAT’S UNDER YOUR CLOTHES?

WATCH NEW WEBISODE  (Beware, if you have a young son hanging around the computer…you may want to watch this when he’s not around)

You know I LOVE talking about clothes, shoes, accessories and all that jazz, but what we have on UNDERNEATH our fabulous outfit is just as important.   The undergarment business is huge with more selection than ever!

  • In order for your tops to fit their best, you must wear the appropriate bra! 
  • For that beautiful dress to flow just right on your hips and accent the silhouette, you should wear Spanx or some sort of Shapewear.  
  • For low-slung jeans,  you should wear panties that lay flat on your skin and have a lower rise in the crotch. 
  • For the sundress that you can’t wear a bra with, you have a few options for self-adhesive covers.

Our bodies, our boobies and our booties come in all shapes and sizes so find what works best for you!   I’m giving you a rundown of my fav’s and what works for me.   As I always say, “take it all with a grain of salt” because what works for one does not work for all.  If you have found a fabulous bra or lingerie piece, PLEASE COMMENT + SHARE WITH US!
