I hit puberty when I was 9 years old. My entire body changed in the course of 6 months and I went from a girl to a girl in a plus size woman’s body. Since that time I’ve struggled finding items that fit. From jeans to bras to swimwear to boots, I’ve always felt frustrated by fashion, left behind across an industry I loved.
This frustration ultimately led to my starting this blog. In 2011, it became my outlet to share how I navigated that frustration, and how I worked around it. It became my place to share with the world and connect with so many of you.
And now, this blog is what ultimately led to my next adventure. Allow me to introduce: Part & Parcel. A size inclusive fashion brand built and designed by me, launching on October 10.
When I decided to launch a fashion company I didn’t want to start by trying to master everything. For plus size women there are enough fit issues with enough products that I wanted to master something specific, a pain point we all feel. So I sat for a long time and thought about the number one thing I wanted but couldn’t find, and the thing you all always told me you wanted: a great fitting wide calf boot, regardless of size.
So, Part & Parcel was born. We are launching on October 10, on Kickstarter, with a meticulously grafted, high quality leather riding boot offered in four calf widths: 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″, made in women’s shoe sizes 6-12.
These images are just a few teasers of what’s to come. But suffice it to say I’m SO excited and hope you are too. Sign up to hear more on our website, and follow us on Instagram @thepartandparcel.
Thank you in advance for your support. I love ya’ll and am so happy to be on this journey together.
