Tea for Two

Yesterday my lovely friend Brittany and I went to the Windsor Arms for their high tea.  It was a beautiful venue filled with sparkling chandeliers, tufted couches and delicate tea settings at each table.  We had such a lovely time sampling scones and treats and we got to pick a tea from their extensive selection.  Of course, being ladies of style, we got all dolled up for the occasion.  Brittany wore a lovely corset from Victoria Wilson (that I got her for Christmas!) and a black velvet, mermaid skirt.  I wore a black dress with lace that I made, a Victoria Wilson waist cincher and a beautiful fascinator given to me by my best friend Laura.  I think we were appropriately dressed for such a fancy tea date!

Inspiration: Tess Munster

How can a plus size pinup like myself not be absolutely inspired by the beauty that is Tess Munster?  She is smart, strong, confident and of course radiantly gorgeous.  I can’t remember how I stumbled upon her blog My Plus Size Life but as soon as I did I fell in love with this inspirational woman and have been following her on social media ever since.  As her blog will tell you, Tess is an L.A. based Plus Size Model, Make Up Artist, Blogger, and founder of the #effyourbeautystandards body positive movement.  And this fashionista was recently named one of the world’s top plus size models by Refinery 29, Huff Post, & Vogue Italia.  Not only is Tess endlessly stylish, showing off an array of  looks in her makeup and fashion, she also preaches self-love, self-respect and self-confidence.   A girl after my own heart!

Tess on the cover of Atomic Bombshells. Love her pose here and the radiant colours of this shot.
Absolutely adore those heart shaped glasses!
Looking foxy in a leopard print bikini!
You can see her amazing skills as a MUA. She totally has the Marilyn Monroe look down.
This photoset shot by Chelzea blows my mind. It was hard to pick just one to post, so I’m adding another!
A woman who embraces the beauty of her own shape.
