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.
