.OOTD- I'm no saint.

                                  
Being fashionable and plus size is often a challenge, and you have to get creative with clothing, and most importantly, not to read the size on the labels. Not for self preservation, but because it doesn't matter what brand something is or size, if it looks like it will fit- try it! 

With that said, I recently fell in love with All Saints, and after years of wishing I could wear their clothing (that isn't plus size AT ALL), I finally had a chance to when my friend gifted me some of their tops. To my surprise not only did it fit, it was was comfortable and in my opinion..I looked good! Plus I love a good a-symmetrical top. 

Again, going with what I said about not reading labels previously, the vest is a large from the straight size of Forever 21 that I patched, studded and made it into my own rocker vest. I paired it with some leggings from Torrid and, last but not least, what rocker outfit is complete without leather boots?! My boots are from Simply Be and I'm in love! Casual rocker look for a gloomy and perfect LA day.

Tess Munster Skincare Regimen


I often receive a lot of questions as to how I get my make-up to look so well, and although make-up artists definitely play a huge part in my flawless looks in professional images, it all starts with a good skin care regimen. Finally, I'm answering all your questions about my skin care regime! Often, because of my job, my skin is put through the ringer with heavy makeup on it for hours. That's why it's crucial to take your make-up off at night. I have some friends that say: "well it's actually better for my skin if I sleep in my makeup", I'm here to say it's not. You are clogging your pores, and spreading bacteria on your pillow cases, etc. We all have very unique skin, and we must all pay attention to our own skin, what might work for me, could have the opposite effect on you, so make sure to read ingredients, reviews, and test out products before committing to them, and in no time, you will find a regimen that leaves you with glowing, beautiful skin!

Okay, now off my soap box (pun intended), this is what I do to help keep my skin fresh and youthful!

.It's okay to be fat. No, really.

I'm often asked, "Since you are a role model, why not promote healthy living?" I will only say this once: Your size is not an indicator of health. It's a fact. Besides, it's not my place to tell women they need to lose weight or what to do with their bodies. We have enough people in our society and media that push the message down our throats that we aren't good enough if we are overweight, or "curvy".

We are constantly told that the true key to happiness is limited to the size you wear. Frankly, that's the real problem here.  What we need is more people saying it's okay to be your size, to love your body, regardless. There also needs to be more diversity of sizes, and honestly races, showing what the majority of women look like. If I sound like a broken record, it's because I am.

Brands I love: Domino Dollhouse!


Sunglasses & necklace are Domino Dollhouse
Since everyone always asks me "Where do you shop?" I'm going to start doing reviews on my favorite brands- Starting with Domino Dollhouse! Yes, I happen to model for them, but that's not why I love them. For the longest time I craved fun fashion in MY size (22 US), and when Domino Dollhouse launched, all of my dreams became a reality. Not only do they have one of a kind, fun prints and designs, but it's all made in America. They do carry other brands, so make sure to check the site out when ordering :) Another thing I love is that their clothing is true plus size clothing, not junior plus, so you know that what you are ordering will be true to size.
