What are you scared of? This was a question asked by Christina, of ProFresh Style awhile back (like a long while) in her VULNERABILITY PT 2: FAUX REGRETS post.

I fear failure, being stagnant, not taking enough risks (the exact opposite of Christina), having children, and or waiting too long to have them. I fear failure of marriage (when it happens) and starting a family without having the career I want.

I am terrified to fly but even more so of not flying before I turn 30 (it’s true, a 20 something-year-old in the 21st century has never flown). I fear the day I lose one of my parents, especially before major events in my life happen i.e. landing that dream job, having kids, getting married, etcetera!

I refuse to let my fears dictate my life any longer or prevent me from doing what I dream of.

I decided to buy tickets to the Curvy Con in New York, this June. I’m not going to lie; I’m freaking out a little bit, but it’s a good type of freaking! Are you going?

I’ll end this by asking you the same question as Christina, what are you scared of? Do you let it prevent you from pursuing your dreams?

There are a lot of people (especially fuller figured women) who are not active in the fashion/blogging world that aren’t aware of all the resources and inspiration available online. I know ordering from the internet can be intimidating, but unfortunately, a lot of retail stores are not as fashion forward in the plus size department as we would like. I understand ordering something online not knowing how it fits can be scary. However, once you find THAT item, it is so worth it. Also, most online stores offer free return shipping, if you’re not sure read the shipping info before placing an order.

This top is a men’s cycling jersey from some random website in China. I could not find anything similar in stores (that fit) or from my “go to” online retailers (listed below). At first I was skeptical to give my credit card number, but I am happy I did. The jacket is exactly what I wanted.

Here is a quick list of blogs and websites I use for inspiration and of course shopping!
