5 Fashion Tips To Stay Warm This Winter

By Katie Sotack The Nannie Swing Coat Despite a mild entrance into the New Year compared to decades prior, it seems the harsh cold of winter is finally falling upon us. The nip has kicked in and if you’re a Northerner, much like SmartGlamour (which is handmade in NYC), you’re bound to have witnessed the never ending warning of snow on TV. Whether you’re up in Boston collecting gas for the snow blower or down in sunny LA finding the boardwalk extra chilly this time of year, here are the tried and true fashion tips to stay cozy and stylish…

Model of the Month: Abimbola

By Katie Sotack Authentic and diverse models can be hard to come by in the clothing industry. Often times, models aren’t directed to ‘be themselves’. At SmartGlamour we do things differently. Our models are as diverse in personality as they are in age, size, shape, and ability. The goal is that any and every customer can find someone modeling our clothes who are similar to them. This month’s model is newer to SmartGlamour’s repertoire of models, having only worked three photo shoots with us, but her light-hearted personality and playful sense of style have shined through since day one. Beginning…

Tales of the Plus Size Prom Dress

By Katie Sotack I was a fat child. I say that with all the love and tenderness in my heart. Equally so, anyone who has seen me in real life or via Instagram can attest to my love for femme fashion. An easy way to identify me in college was to search for bright, bubblegum pink across the 250 acre campus. I would not go out unless I had a fun skirt and powerful pair of six inch heels to match. I was the equivalent of Carrie Bradshaw; a self involved blogger who’d spend her last cent on designer clothes. However,…

Model of the Month: Melissa

By Katie Sotack The same as our clothes, our models are unique, character-driven, and tailor made to their internal compasses. Like individual finger prints, no one model is the same as the other. SmartGlamour founder, Mallorie Dunn, makes sure of it. For a customizable clothing brand championing a community where everyone is welcome, it seems like a nonstarter. Celebrating natural bodies equates to models that vary. Pre-pandemic, SG hosted a monthly blog dedicated to showcasing these beautiful babes entitled “Model of the Month”. Much like concerts, sporting events, and family gatherings, the blog is making it’s triumphant return post 2020-2021….

How To Love Your Body (In A Way That Has Nothing To Do With Flattering It)

By Katie Sotack   It’s a funny trick of time that we always look better in the memories. That photo we hated at age 22, we look back on fondly with the beauty of our younger selves. With time we begin to look at past us as a whole, instead of a fragmented mosaic. A pretty picture that we could hang in our rooms. Instead of narrowing in on our crooked nose and yellowing teeth, we look at our younger selves with a kindness we wish we could feel in the moment. What a revolution it would be to love…
