BYE BYE BODYCON DRESSES!

Is the summer over yet?

I am so excited and been checking out the plus size fashion industry collections for Fall. However, one of the biggest observations I found is when it comes to wearing fabulous dresses they either too short, too clingy, or too bare. Hello World! Not every body type or woman wants to wear a “BODYCON” dress and have to layer with undergarments or outerwear to camouflage imperfections.

So….  I went online window shopping to find a dress for ladies night out, date night, and/or afterwork cocktails with colleagues. Whatever the occasion is I discovered a few alternatives that may be flattering on any body type and the style feels sexy/grown. I don’t want to wear teen dresses in my 30’s, trying to compete with the younger generation. But on the other hand, looking 60 is not an option either. Check out GC’s three versatile dress picks under a $100 that may eliminate the extra add-ons that inhibits us from really enjoying our fab haute looks…..

to be or not to be

Happy Monday! You know gang, I love fashion and the creativity our designers express in clothing, shoes, accessories, and makeup can be breathtaking. But sometimes the word “creativity” gets push to another surreal reality called to be or not to be. Now we all know there is an audience and buyer for every product and those who love it, enjoy it. However, for many of us its just unrealistic, not age appropriate, it’s for the runway not everyday wear, or just not don’t make sense.

Check out these five creative looks I stumbled across and you tell me your thoughts.

It’s GlamCurvy Friday. The week is coming to an end and its time to celebrate the GlamCurvy divas for accepting who they are, pushing through barriers of the norm, and liberating curves. Many of us have the ideal of curvy and plus size is fat or overweight. Not here these ladies represent and wear their inner curvy soul well. Let’s continue to push this GlamCurvy revolution.

Fear us skinnys, WE are the new NORM!

Have a GlamCurvy Friday!

Why Urban Outfitters?

Instead of me explaining what I see tell me what you see! Are we at a point in society where we can accept a known retailer to sell such controversial shirts and feel okay about it? Now fashion is fashion, but I don’t think it was ever meant to hurt, degrade, or make someone feel a certain way about themselves. Personally, I am not a sensitive person but I am sensitive when I think about a young girl in middle or high school bullied due to her size or the woman who lost a job due to size and not skillset. That’s what rattles me! I want to know why urban outfitters would entertain and sell such shirts? Which means I can’t entertain them anymore…. tell me why urban outfitters it was even considered?
