My date with Domino Dollhouse

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending Domino Dollhouse’s very first exclusive collection photo shoot, Make Out Circus. The collection is a breath of fresh air in the plus size fashion community.  The clothes are unique, kitschy, and sweet.  With the name of the collection dubbed Make Out Circus, it is indeed sealed with a kiss. 

I got to sit down and chat with owner of this Southern California local plus size clothing store, Tracy Broxterman and pick her brain about her amazing style.

Tiffany: Congratulations on your new collection, what is the purpose of the shoot?
Tracy: To show off the new exclusive domino dollhouse collection.

Tiffany: How long has this collection been in the works?
Tracy: Since November of 2010.

Tiffany:  Tell me about your personal style.
Tracy: I have always been a gothic girl at heart and this collection has some of that influence. I also don’t follow any of the plus size clothing rules and you will see lots of horizontal stripes and bright bold colors.

Tiffany: Where have you noticed a lot of Domino Dollhouse’s success has come from?
Tracy: A lot of the success has been from bloggers, especially Pocket Rocket and Fat Nurse.

Tiffany: What are your long term plans with Domino Dollhouse?
Tracy: I would love to open up a physical store and do a darker more gothic collection. It is frustrating working with vendors, so I would love to have the store be exclusively my collections.

On this exclusive, behind the scenes photo shoot, professionalism and friendliness were not lacking.  The photographer Shannon Brooke Imagery was kind and creative.  She took beautiful photographs showcasing the clothing and the models, Tess Munster and Rayna Salcido. Tracy Broxterman also didn’t play by the plus size fashion rules when booking these models, because each are above industry standard size, with Tess Munster proud of her 5’4 size 20 figure.  These models are undoubtedly some of the most gorgeous in the plus size world. Helping along the way was the fabulous make- up artistry of Natasha Marcelina. Natasha provided two different make-up looks for each model which aided in the allure of the models. Lastly, the hair and styling was as flawless as the collection, Frankie Sin, an adorable model herself, provided Tess and Rayna with their striking locks and put together their no excuse fashionable looks.  Each of these Domino Dollhouse team members made this collection something to talk about and more importantly something to get your wallet out for.

Domino Dollhouse sets you apart, no holds bar, plays by no fashion rules, and certainly makes no excuses no matter what size you are.
