If you read my post Mixed Messages you know how I feel about TLC’s show What Not To Wear. This show features co-host Stacy London, a fashion expert who tells women what they should and shouldn’t wear.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, London got the green light for eight episodes of a new fashion series. It’s untitled at the moment, but the article states it will feature husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan. They own plus size boutique Lee Lee’s Velise in Brooklyn, New York. The show will revolve around the boutique and the customers.
A lot like What Not To Wear, the owners will work on making over their customer’s wardrobes and offering plus size fashion advice.
I’m always worried about how these shows will portray plus size women. Sometimes these networks edit the show to be a lot more dramatic than it really is. You know what I’m talking about, right? Let’s hope this shed’s a positive light on plus size women and fashion.
