I would love to say that I've know about Beth for years and that I was one of her first fans but that isn't true. I only been aware of her existence for a little over a year . The first time I ever saw her was on a tabloid and the picture was of her sweating feverishly at a concert . Even through all the chaos of the photo I noticed the outfit she had on . As soon as I got in the house I googled her and was hooked from then on.
For the last few months Beth Ditto's Name has been echoing throughout the blogosphere Due to the highly anticipated release of her new line for UK based plus size clothing store Evans .Well that date has come and gone and from I hear Beth Ditto at Evans is doing well .Personally I loved Many of the pieces but was a little disappointed the line was so small .Despite that I'm excited to see whats next for her line .
Beth Ditto's fearless attitude and eclectic fashion choices are a perfect recipe for artistic inspiration. I wanted to do a post on her today just because shes fab, Enjoy the eye candy.

Hi, I’m Candice from Philly. I am new to blogging and I wanted to make one for quite a while. I decided there was no time like the present and to just do it . Although I am head over heels in love with fashion I haven't always been the most fashionable girl. Even now I'm still constantly refining my personal style. Within the last few years the fashion world has started to recognize that there are girls out there who are over a size 0,6,or 8 that love fashion too. Plus size options have grown tremendously an although we don't have as many choices as we should ,the options are much better than they were. Just like many young women my age my sense of style is always evolving and changing. I am always finding new places to shop ,different ways to look good in clothes,and learning to break bad habits like settling for not so cute clothes just because they fit.
Sum people look at fashion as unimportant, pointless,or shallow. I know from experience this is NOT true .Being a plus size isn't easy. There are so many things done and said daily that can chip away at your self esteem . Fashion can be liberating. The right dress can give you an extra boost of confidence or the right pair of heels can can change your mood entirely, taking you from sad to sexy.There are still plus size girls who feel limited when it comes to fashion .Sum are discouraged by the small selections of plus sizes lines in local malls, or because they thing there's nothing that they will look good in,or even worse things a "big girl cant wear" . This is the reason I started my blog . I want to share ideas,tips ,tricks , and what I've learned with you. I want to show plus size ladies they dont have to follow the rules when it comes to fashion and inspire you to have fun with fashion .
I've introduced myself now I want to introduce Cupcakes & High heels (which I named after two of my favorite things) to you all and let everyone know what it's all about. You guys already know I love fashion so of course you know I will be blogging about all the latest fashion news, trends, fab chicas,new plus lines, and of course everything I’m lusting over at the moment. This blog won't be entirely about fashion though, you'll see a lil bit of every thing I love. Once in a while you all will see some current events, celebrity gossip,Music, also product,restaurant,and website reviews or whatever catches my eye.Welcome to my blog and Enjoy!!!!
