Anna Sui X ModCloth: Plus Size Designer Dresses!

October 23rd, 2018|

Have yinz heard of the Anna Sui X ModCloth collab? Sizes 0-24. Yes, it includes plus sizes! I just get so psyched when revered designers include plus sizes. This kind of thing used to never happen for us plus sizes! To be honest it made following fashion depressing because I knew I could never participate in the styles I wanted to. Kind of like a lurker to fashion, not [...]

Plus Size Pattern Mixing Using Plaid & Polka Dots

October 12th, 2018|

Hi yinz! This entry features another plus size fall look. This time pattern mixing of polka dot and plaid. I'm wearing head to toe ModCloth (as stated that I would do in the previous entry). While I am plus size, this is available in sizes XS-4X. I have linked each item and shared how the sizing worked for me. I'm very happy with this fat modern day Mary Tyler [...]

Marée Pour Toi – Six Looks From the New Plus Size Label

September 24th, 2018|

In early September, I went to NYC for NYFW and CurvyCon (did you see my look featured on InStyle for NYFW?!!)). I also had the opportunity to try on Marée Pour Toi clothing before their online store was up and running and get to know the label. I also went to a pop-up shop hosted by your favorite #inthefittingroom style guide, Curvily. Keep reading and scrolling because I chose my [...]

Body Positive Pittsburgh

June 22nd, 2018|

Hi yinz! I would like to introduce you to Body Positive Pittsburgh (*unofficial name until we come up with something clever like Yinz BoPo or whatever). ***We went with Yinz Bopo, click here to read all about how to join our group!*** Many other cities have body positive, fat positive and plus size events and I am constantly cursing my finances because I cannot travel to [...]

DIY Yellow Hair: My process so you can dye it too.

June 11th, 2018|

An ode to yellow hair and why I did it.   Yellow hair wasn't even a color that was on radar two years ago. My natural hair color is medium/dark brown peppered with about 15%+ grey (I started greying at age 20 and it has been a very slow progression). Before I bleached my hair, I kept it brown for a few years because I thought when I turn all [...]

How I Dressed Like a Detective and Found My Grandfather

April 20th, 2018|

Dress for the job you want. Well, I always had a secret dream of being a detective. Solving puzzles calms me.  Trench coats and suits have long been staples in my wardrobe. The only things I am missing is an office that reeks of stale cigarettes, old rust colored shag carpet and a creaky office chair (ok maybe I don't need everything). Throughout my entire adult life I have been [...]

Extra Metallic. Extra Comfort. I’m not exercising anyway.

December 1st, 2017|

I was going to create a clever post for you all about how to be comfortable and cozy this winter with a focus on plus size comfort clothes that are a little bit extra. But sometimes I just want to share an outfit I am super excited about! I haven't been as excited for my new clothes since my outfit here.  Besides I think these photos speak for themselves. Extra [...]

Plus Size Winter Coats 2017-2018

November 22nd, 2017|

Let's Shop for a Winter Coat!I ranted on my last post and expressed the difficulty of finding a nice plus size winter jacket in a brick and mortar store. I cannot change what shopping is like in your town, but I can create a list of great plus size winter coats from my personal wish list that are available online. These are all brands I shop from and have been [...]

Need a last minute plus-size winter coat? Good luck!

November 20th, 2017|

I need a winter coat Unsurprisingly Pittsburgh is cold in November. Surprisingly as a style blogger I am not prepared. Last year, I didn't buy new winter coats, boots, or barely any articles of warm weather clothing. I was attempting to relocate to a warmer climate, so I decided it was unnecessary. Well, I am still here and it's cold. My winter essentials from multiple winters ago are either tattered [...]

Pared-Down Basics That are Not Boring

November 16th, 2017|

Hey folks! I just returned from three weeks traveling in Nicaragua. Fortunately for me, I haven't had much time to transition out of my summery clothing! I am usually piling on print and color. However, this time I am playing with muted colors and subtle texture. At the moment I am all about stripped down basics with metal frames. Probably because I just left Nicaragua where it is so beautiful, colorful [...]

Jamie JeTaime: One Year of Grieving and Content Production

October 13th, 2017|

The one year herstory of Jamie JeTaime: It has been a little over a year since I started this blog. Because of my life moving forward in brilliant ways (no news, but I can feel a positive change), I have had to focus my energy on prepping my house for a potential move instead of creating new content. This is a positive thing, in many ways. The most beneficial of [...]

Fl-41 Migraine Lenses for Fluorescent Light.

October 2nd, 2017|

Fl-41 Migraine Lenses for Fluorescent Light. Wow, so many of us have difficulties in fluorescent lighting! I received many responses to my post:  Migraines: Steps to Handle Fluorescent Lighting.  I have decided to continue on this topic, because many of us suffer and do not know our options! In this blog entry I review Axon Optics Fl-41 lenses. They are known to many to be beneficial in preventing migraines and [...]

A Mix of Vintage & Contemporary Plus Size Style.

September 8th, 2017|

Mixing Vintage & Contemporary Plus Size Styles for transitioning from Summer to Fall. I have always mixed vintage with contemporary clothing. Mixing old and new began as an economical necessity and as a supplement to the abysmal plus size clothing available during my college years. While a teen living at home I used to fill up garbage bags with clothes for $5 or less at garage sales. I used these [...]

10 Body Positive Steps to Discover Your Own Beauty

August 3rd, 2017|

Discovering Your Own Body Positivity: Style and body positivity intertwine for me. I recently asked folks on Instagram: "what body part do you like the best?" The comments ran the gamut of body parts from eyes to shoulders to feet. I have had plenty of comments in my life that I should get a rhinoplasty, I never felt inclined to. In fact, I like my nose. It might even be [...]

Easy Linen ModCloth Dress that is Far From Boring

July 24th, 2017|

ModCloth gets me on a style and emotional level. I fancy wearing clothes that reflect my interests (heavy on nostalgia and vintage inspiration) and I also appreciate styles that are available to folks in a variety of sizes. It feels totally good when someone compliments my style at the pool or on the streets, and I can be confident that people in sizes XXS-4X can find my same exact style. [...]

Migraines: Steps you can take to handle fluorescent lighting

July 22nd, 2017|

Hi I’m Jamie and I’m extremely sensitive to light.  Unless you know me in real life, chances are you don’t know that I have extreme light sensitivity. I suffer from chronic vestibular migraines and vestibular neuritis. Yes, I’m finally coming out with this. I have found many tools that help me combat my struggles with certain lighting conditions. Consequently I feel it is imperative to share what I’ve [...]

Pattern mixing with Eloquii.

April 14th, 2017|

Spring to me is pattern mixing. It's shedding layers and being overly ambitious for summer. Overly ambitious means wearing sandals when it is a tad too chilly, but practical enough to pair a crop top with a midi-skirt. My welcome to Spring outfit is entirely from Eloquii. Eloquii is a lovely plus size online store (sizes 14-28) that has fashion forward cuts and prints in quality fabrics. This is a [...]

ModCloth IRL Pittsburgh

September 22nd, 2016|

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a long time fan of ModCloth. I adore vintage inspired contemporary clothing that is made well. Most, if not all, of Modcloth's house brand comes in sizes XXS-4S. Their clothing fits me impeccably too. When I heard ModCloth IRL was coming to wear it all began (ModCloth started in Pittsburgh), I was excited!

Tim Gunn is not going to like my pastel crop-top and that’s okay.

September 10th, 2016|

In college if I would have worn off-the-rack clothing at a department store, I would have had to take out a credit card to feel like a frumpy sack of shit. Don't worry, I didn't. I had to get creative and embrace the fact that I just didn’t have the option to participate in the fast-fashion industry that many of peers were wearing.
