Happy New Year from InPlainSight.style!

Share This Post

Today marks our sixth anniversary, which I cannot believe I’ve been at it for that long, but there you go. 2022 is here and hopefully you are all staying safe and well out there.

I wanted to kick off the year with a quick letter welcoming anyone that is visiting here for the first time and say, “Welcome back!”, to those returning.

This blog began with my kid and me wanting to create a place where anyone, regardless of age, size, shape or fandom, could read tips and guides on how to express yourself with your everyday looks and lifestyle. I believe we have accomplished that.

Having said that, I am changing things a little bit around here, but don’t worry, this is still your safe space to come and express yourself! The only way I’m changing is how I bring content to you, to stay with the changing climate on various social platforms.

I dove into TikTok last year, and really enjoy making them. TikToks are a great way to show you looks in the wild, how they fit, how they move and give you some ideas on where/when to wear them. Along with TikTok, I was accepted into the Amazon Influencer Program, which is a big dream of mine, so I was so excited to become part of their team. So, the way I bring you content will also change a bit in regards to that.

So, long story short, I’ll be posting TikToks, Instagrams (videos and photos) and the shop links will always be in my bio in the form of a Link Tree. That is in addition to my posts here, so no matter how you like to get your content, I have you covered.

My Link Tree has the following buttons to find what you are looking for:

Kim’s Amazon Shop This takes you to Amazon, you click on the photo of what you want to purchase and can purchase it right from there

Shop the Looks Takes you here so you can click on the shop links in the posts

Kim’s CowCow.com Store Takes you to my designs on cowcow.com

Kim’s Tee Public Store Takes you to my designs on teepublic.com

Our Store The InPlainSight.style/store, where you can grab logo merch

Kim’s RedBubble.com Store Takes you to my designs on redbubble.com

Our Book Takes you directly to the page to purchase our handbook, “In Plain Sight”

Kim’s Amazon Author Page Takes you to my notebook and planners for sale on Amazon

Kim’s Poshmark Closet You can shop my items for offer on Poshmark

Cash App For donations and tips

So, that’s the breakdown of how to find everything easily. I’m looking forward to bringing you so many more designs, looks for bounding, theme park looks and just everyday nerdy shenanigans this year! Stay tuned…

Cottagecore and How to Wear It

Share This Post

I recently got into cottagecore (once I realized that it is just a small step from goth). I really love the comfort and flowiness of it.

But, as a plus-size woman, how do you wear this without it looking too tent-like?

Well, the key is the accessories. I have three looks here that are a goth/cottagecore, but with accessories, I have drawn the eye away from the more voluminous areas so people take in the whole look. That way it doesn’t look just “baggy”.

In all three looks, I am wearing my Doc Martens. Click on link to buy. I changed hats, but both wide brimmed hats are from Target. Again, click on links to buy. The belt is from Amazon.

Now, to the dresses. The one below is from Target.

This one is from Walmart, yep, Walmart.

And, this last one is from Amazon.

All three are affordable, so you can create a micro-wardrobe of cottagecore in no time! Perfect for Fall and the spooky season to come!

Happy Shopping!

Presenting My Store at Cowcow.com

Share This Post

Hello fashion nerds! I am super excited to add to my creative portfolio with a virtual store at cowcow.com!

So far, I have three designs on the site that you can put on anything, and I mean anything (I made them available on all products, so no, really, everything!)

First up is my Witch Goth Pastel print:

Here is a screen-shot of a dress in the print:

Next up is my 50s print:

Here is a screen-shot of a dress in that print:

Lastly, I have my Friggin Bats pattern:

Here is a screen-shot of a dress in that pattern:

However, you are not limited to just dresses and girly-style clothing. They print on demand home goods, and even phone covers.

Check out the store here.

Being able to design patterns and get them put on actual garments and items is a real dream come true moment for me. Thank you all for your support!

Early Code Orange!!!

Share This Post

Recently, the BF and I went to Disneyland, and I took advantage of my time in Orange County to visit the At Home store for the first time.

Several YouTubers I watch had shown that At Home had started stocking Halloween items early, so since I do not have an At Home near me, but Disneyland does… well, I had to go!

This store did not disappoint!

I got the cute items you see in these pictures. I enjoyed shopping in person, but they do have a website here so you can start your decorating early as well.

In fashion news, my dress is from CowCow and my necklace is from Wish. Click on links to buy.

Happy shopping and Code Orange!!!

My New Amazon Notebook Shop!

Share This Post

In addition to writing this blog and my first book offering, I’ve also been designing some vinyl pins and lately gotten into designing notebooks with a nerdy flair!

I’ve also designed a lefthanded version for each design for my fellow lefties out there. No more smudges on the arms and no more lines on your arms, Huzzah!

Here are some pics of the covers. All of them come in the aforementioned lefthanded version, but they also all have a sketchbook, ruled paper, graph paper and dot paper version to choose from.

Follow this link to buy.

Happy Shopping!

A Visit to Avengers Campus!

Share This Post

Well, I did it. I finally got to Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure. After a year’s delay due to COVID, the Campus is up and running!

A few things to note before you go. You have to have a ticket to DCA and a reservation for DCA for the day you want to go. Next, getting onto the Campus will take a few hours. There is a stand-by line, but you will get in. If you get a boarding pass for the Web Slingers ride (you get that online if you are lucky at 7 am and again at noon), you can by-pass the line, but getting a boarding pass is tricky.

Now, once you get there, it is simply amazing! It was everything I hoped it would be.

The Avengers are walking around regularly doing meet and greets (socially distant for now). There are regular battles going on at the Avengers main building.

You can also find the Guardians of the Galaxy having a dance-off party to save the Universe in front of Mission Breakout.

Bill the boyfriend and I had such an amazing time! On top of everything, the food at the Pym Test Kitchen is all amazing as well!

Until next time…
