There is nothing wrong for plus-sized women to wear a long dress, and they can go a long way with it. To flaunt it correctly, here is some tips fashion for plus size to try.

Twitter users have figured out how to troll art thieves, and it’s turned into a hilarious meme for a good cause.
Artists on social media have long faced the problem of bootleg merch sites reprinting their work. A print-on-demand site snapping up a design that you spent days or weeks creating so they can have it automatically printed by order on t-shirts, mugs, stickers, and hats is instantaneous, and once your design is on this network of sites, it takes a legal game of whack-a-mole to get it removed.
