This week Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash. I love her site that is a blend of plus size activism and gorgeous fashions. She also is relaunching her popular e- commerce site which proves that style is not a size. My aunt was a beautiful blonde who was not able to find what she needed for her social obligations. She would often stay home because she did not want to “embarass” her husband. She was a lovely intelligent woman and I only wish Black Cat Plus had been around for advice and support.
Jodell also is the proud parent of a beautiful show cat who has been winning ribbons at every event she enters.

Today, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash. As summer winds down her theme of the week is end of summer health, beauty and fitness tips. I’m sorry to see summer ending, but I am determined to cross off more of my summer to do list including Shakespeare in the Park, a picnic on Overlook Mountain and wearing that white dress that looked so good in the dressing room but has not yet had a chance to go outside.

While many fashionistas push Spank as THE solution for style, the hot summer weather turns spank from shapewear into just plain cruelty, Black Cat Plus finds clothing that feel as good as they look.
