Well this is awesome - two students from Cornell University have created a mannequin modeled after real plus sized bodies, building the most accurate curvy shape the fashion industry has ever used.
That sounds a little strange (why would an accurate plus-size mannequin be revolutionary?) but until now, most mannequins for larger clothes were made by just magnifying the general proportions of smaller mannequins. That means the proportions of plus-sized mannequins have been pretty far from the real proportions of your average plus-sized bod. Read More

I love “Downton Abbey.” There’s something wonderfully charming about the show’s nostalgic atmosphere and strong, witty characters. Its world is extravagant, luxurious, sometimes pointless, but always beautiful. Luckily for me and other fans, the show will soon be launching a new plethora of goods, sure to empty my wallet and fill my tiny apartment.
"We'll be working across an entire range of products coming out this year. Read More

November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come!
My first items are these fanciful, handmade pastel oxfords. All the pastels are completely covetable, but I'm really digging the pink ones. Read More

Whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican, somewhere in the middle, or just someone who likes to poke fun at politics, Fab's collection of political items seems to have something for everyone.
Two of the items are Romney and Obama candy dispensers, cleverly named Political Poopers. If you have a dog, you can buy eco-friendly biodegradable poop bags to show your preference or “smear the rival” (eww). There’s also a cool tote bag with a graphic of Obama with an afro. Read More
