I have only been blogging for a very short time, but I have been reading blogs for a while. I have read a couple of fellow plus size women saying pretty negative things about size acceptance clubs. I want to provide my take and my experience. First and foremost, you make your own happiness. I have been going to Size Acceptance clubs for a long time and I have fun EVERY time. I tend to have fun wherever I go. I surround myself with good people and make my own happy situations. ANYWAYS, Club Bounce is a night club for the big and beautiful located in Long Beach. It is really great because it is definitely a night club atmosphere. More importantly it is an empowering situation for big girls. It is an opportunity for plus size men and women to go into a relaxed environment and be surrounded with fellow plus size people or size friendly individuals.
Now, I am not here to get into a debate of any sort. I am merely giving my experience. I have always enjoyed getting ready and seeing my fellow gorgeous big beautiful women dressed up and enjoying themselves as well. The fashions I have seen at Club Bounce have been sexy, creative, and trendy. The beautiful Lisa Marie, that runs Club Bounce has enforced a dress code, which also brings a new level of class. It is a similar environment to any night club you might go to with people dressed to impressed.

This weekend I went with my two gorgeous girlfriends. We had a "get ready" party at their house and enjoyed getting all dolled up for our big night out. We met up with Lisa Marie at the club for a couple of photo ops and got some great pics for my blog!
My outfit was a combination of many outfits. I wore a leopard print dress that I purchased from torrid a while back, and a skirt that I bought on casual-plus.com and made a dress out of it. Because the dress was a sweetheart neckline, I wanted to make it look like a leopard bustier. I tied the dress together with a sequin belt from torrid, and my FAVORITE cropped blazer from torrid. I wore a red necklace that I made for a pop of color and my cute wedges from torrid.
I finally got the chance to use my new naked palette from Urban Decay. I did a combination of almost every color in the palette to create a pin up smokey eye. I used false lashes and my Kohl eyeliner from MAC. For my face, I used my stila bronzer to provide the shading effect and then a peachy red Mac blush for the apples of my cheeks. I then took my Redd lip liner from MAC, heavily lined my lips and used a bit of my cranberry lip stain from stila to get the shine.

I urge any woman or man to check out the club and make their own decision. It is a great place to let loose, have yummy drinks, and dance to awesome music (sidenote, bounce has the best sound system and DJ I have heard in all the places I have been to in Orange County and LA).
Everyone is always friendly, the clothes are always HOT.
It is a great place to check out and see what the other girls outfits are like and be surrounded by people that have confidence and are there to show it off!
