If I learned anything from doing Ready to Stare's first ever holiday collection, it's that what you wear for the holidays can certainly make people talk. Style is my personal form of self expression. It's the way that I show that I refuse to be invisible. And what better way to silence your fat shaming relatives than with a standout holiday look.

This season, I wasn't the only designer taking big risks. I saw more options than ever for plus size babes and it made me so happy to see this kind of variety that I had to share some of my favorites. From capes and sequin rompers to culottes and cupcake dresses, there's a little something for everyone to shine this holiday.
