Are you looking for the perfect plus size dress? I have gathered a list of online stores that stock some lovely dresses in sizes larger than 16.

Our Day // November 14, 2019

Introducing baby Martha, at one day old. This was one alert little baby girl! I couldn’t believe the looks and expressions she was giving, after only 23 hours breathing air.
