Orange is the new black's Danielle Brooks has created a plus-size fashion line and it's great!

This September, Orange Is The New Black Star (OITNB), Danielle Brooks shared with her Instagram followers news about her upcoming clothing design collaboration with Universal Standard. Good News! The wait is over. The collaboration was super successful and her designs of TRIA collection with Universal Standard are now available for purchase on Universal Standard.

Universal Standard is a plus-size clothing company which designs clothes for women from size 10 to size 28. Danielle Brooks' designs for the TRIA collection is part of the Universal Standard's TRIA series that asks:

"If you could design three pieces that you always wished you had in your closet, but could never find, what would they be?"

In a Press Release, Universal Standard stated that, "We worked closely with Danielle Brooks to design the three pieces in the collection, which reflect both our established downtown, yet classic, aesthetic and Danielle's strong personal style".

View some photos from the collection below.

What do you think of these designs? We are so proud of Danielle and can boldly add Fashion Designer to her portfolio now. This collection is a must have, or at least a must-try. It’s perfect for confident plus-size women who are prepared to glow in this holiday season.

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.

Here is a list of some fat positive blogs that might help you on your journey:

Light yourself a candle bright.
I'll you, if you will me invite
To dance within that gentle light."
