It's a mushroom beret! The artist @felthappiness hand felts high quality magical hats of various styles, custom made to size. I feel like classic berets were begging to be transformed into mushrooms! Kevin jokingly said it reminds him of Toad from Super Mario Bros. I think très chic! #felthappiness

How would you style this @shopcurrently silver dress? I paired it with a leather jacket, textured black & maroon tights & silver booties. But it would also look great with fishnets, heels, & a statement faux fur or bare legs with oxfords. Endless combos. PS: It's on sale. by @sandrachilep
Winter style complete: I finally have a colorful statement faux fur courtesy of @rebelwilsonxangels ! My other faux furs are vintage & don't clasp over my chest... but this jacket does with ease!!!! Yessss! Also I paired this with a sheer shirt to show winter that i'm still boss! What do you look for in faux fur? #getyourrebelon #fauxfurcoat
Leopard bodycon from @Xeharcurvy that I wore on a random warm day last week! I don't know about you, but after having frigid temps, the sixties feel positively balmy! Are you into wearing bodycon dresses? Is there a dress cut you prefer?

I am happy to share my life with someone who gets me and compliments me. Who is weird with me. Who I'm madly in love with. Random thoughts:
i feel like there is too much pressure for people to couple up.
I'm an invisible queer with huge relationship privileges.
Each time I post a photo of kevin & me, someone comments or DMs me that a parent/spouse/coworker told them that no one would love them unless they lost weight. People that try to make others feel unloveable bc of their size really piss me off and they are SO wrong.
Much . : @sandrachilep
Happy New Year! Are you city or country? This photo is a little snippet of my home life. I'm wearing my pima cotton @universalstandard loungewear on my Pittsburgh deck. My neighborhood is dense with 100 year old row-homes. In fact, I can touch multiple homes from my deck. I like to look fully dressed and also feel like I'm in PJs while relaxing with my coffee (ok I'm inside today because it's like 9 degrees F). This outfit is the softest!!! .
Each piece is available separately. However #UniversalStandard also has a Lounge Kit. The Kit has all four pieces (pants, cardigan, nightie, & top) & the nightie is free!

I was severely ill for 2014-2016. I spent most of that time in bed or at the doctors. In bed for most of two years with what felt like the flu. For two years my life was hospitals, bone marrow biopsies, & tons of other medical tests. It turns out I have an autoimmune white blood cell disorder. Because it's rare, it took forever to diagnose. When I was ill, I had 0 neutrophils (they attack bacteria). But i survived & I'm not ill anymore. To be clear, I was ill far before 2014. But eventually my fevers became worse, i was too exhausted to move, my lungs hurt, etc...
While I laid in bed I thought about how much of my life I had let pass me by because of insecurities. I was always the awkward weird curvy tall loud dresser & rough around the edges. But you know what I realized as I kept myself company in bed for two years? That I wanted another chance to celebrate all I have. And here I am.
I can talk about this now that time has passed. It used to make me panicky to discuss this (bc it was traumatizing AF). I wasnt sure I would live through it. .
2018 is going to be an amazing year, I can feel it. I haven't felt sick in over a year. Last month my hematologist said my body has adapted to this autoimmune condition & I'm seriously healthy.
If you are going through some tough ass shit, you're a brave fucking thing even if you don't feel it. I see you. You are worth the fight. . I tried to write a blog post about this, but ♀️. Instead I let the cat out of the bag in a few interviews (some haven't come out yet). You can visit the press section of JamieJeTaime.com to see an interview with @sowow_magazine where I discuss this!! .
Thanks for your support!!! Everyone who commented, interviewed me, illustrated me & all the companies who have supported me in 2017: THANK YOU. THANK YOU. And THANK YOU. Thank you for being the most amazing partner ever @vincentvanstop : you never ever left my side (except for when you left for work lol!). Thank you to Obamacare that initially helped me have insurance required to tackle this & keep on living. .
Cheers to 2018! May this be the best year for you yet!
Green velvet bell bottoms & striped top from @fashionnovacurve (XS-3X)! You're welcome. Save $ with code XXJAIMEXX . I have been looking for velvet bell bottoms my entire life! What is your favorite cut of pants? I like high waisted pants in a variety of vintage influenced styles.

I don't mind prancing & posing in the frigid cold. Do you? I tease and say it's my arctic blood that makes me cold tolerant, but really it's because I'm a ham for the camera. Throwback to when I was freezing for the camera in this @xeharcurvy velvet floral dress. Use code Jamie15 for a discount. It would be super cute for Valentine's Day btw!!!
What do you wear at home relaxing? I'm generally braless & only wear super comfortable clothes. @universalstandard recently created a modern minimalist loungewear collection (sizes 10-28) made of soft durable pima cotton. I have the entire collection & it feels incredible! I am wearing both the cardigan & the nightie from the collection in the photo. Looove them... chic & so soft! ***Each piece is available separately. However #UniversalStandard also has a Lounge Kit. The Kit has all four pieces (pants, cardigan, nightie, & top) & the nightie is free!

What are you wearing NYE? Metallics? I'm loving the 70s glam vibes of this dress from @shopcurrently for NYE! CURRENTLY is a new brand that carries sizes 14-32 and they are having a site-wide sale (including this dress). CURRENTLY has a super empowering message that I put in my stories!

What is your relationship with your thighs? My thighs were the last body part of mine I accepted. I mostly disliked the things that decorate my thighs: cellulite, veins, & stretch-marks. I felt the size of my thighs just showcased them more. You know know what I learned? Thighs will be thighs and that's more than ok. #luvmartha
**Take your protein pills and put your helmet on** Who am I quoting? .
The shirt & pants were an early surprise Xmas gift from Kevin. I have been wearing these thick leggings practically every day since I got them (warm comfortable & cute). Go to JamieJeTaime.com (in bio) for more outfit info! #xoq #davidbowieforever #eloquii #samedelman
Have you all watched this @universalstandard video? I see many faces I recognize from Instagram! Do you? Are you in it? I am happy that I'm in it few times! My flexing butt cheeks make me laugh so hard though! There is no way I would have posted that a few years ago. Progress! Is there anything you do/wear now that you wouldn't feel comfortable with in the past? #nowyoucan #universalstandard #luvmartha
What is your favorite way to personalize a look? I like to include at least one vintage item to each outfit. For instance, I paired my vintage gaudy (it is gaudy!) alumesh handbag with my new pink velvet @xeharcurvy dress and Joseph Marc glasses from @CoastalDotCom .
