Look at these lovely ladies at London Fashion Week.

The negatives of plus-size
The Daily Iowan
We are in the midst of the hottest time in fashion. February begins the Fashion Week parade that jumps from New York to London to Paris, complete with the walking pieces of art that will hit (mostly elite) stores in the spring. Implicit in your thoughts on couture designers and bright runways are the models. While the exact shape of the model changes to express the zeitgeist of the decade, the actual size has basically stayed the same. This year, however, more than one designer has chosen to include the generally dreaded (in the fashion world at least) plus-size model. Rumors abound from London and New York about the opposition to this new inclusion.
So what is all the hubbub about? Despite my very secure self-identification as a feminist, I find myself a bit out of sorts where this topic is involved. While I oppose the idea of size-0 models as the only representation of the female form on the runway, I don’t think I am a fan of the size-12 models either.
**I was at the mall yesterday and I saw tons of handbags in these colors. I’m wondering if you think this color bag can be used year round. Or just a spring/summer color?
As you can see, the fall runway produced a very simple and attainable look. For the most part, the makeup was light and the hair was wavy. I have always been a fan of the soft lip and strong eye. Oscar de la Renta’s look was a little bit darker than the others, but the women look stunning.
Which designer’s beauty look is your favorite?
Anyways…L.A. was really beautiful today, it was in the 70’s. I didn’t want to wear pants, so I threw on this new dress compliments of Shade Clothing. It’s so comfortable and it has pockets! There’s a band at the waist and pleating, which is flattering btw. The second photo, is what I’m wearing now. I am going to have dinner with the in-laws and now it’s a little chilly. I love wearing tights and boots.
What do you wear when you go shopping?
There were angels, butterflies, flowers, bows, and sparrows. Every season, a new print explodes into our wardrobes.
This season, you can’t walk into your favorite boutique without trying on at least one item with the peacock design. It’s everywhere.
The question is…are you buying it?
Welcome to the Curves and Chaos jungle! This safari spring trend is for the fashionista woman warrior.
Colors like camel, khaki, and Army green can be incorporated into any wardrobe. A simple white tee, tank, or blouse is key for bottoms. Tops go great with jeans.
Don’t forget your accessories either. Canvas bags and wood adorned jewelry add an edge to any outfit. I can’t forget the basketweave-inspired shoe. It’s definitely on my shopping list…along with #5.
My golden rule: Be confident in whatever you wear. Remember, it’s an urban jungle out there!
I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Here it goes. I use to think gladiator sandals were ugly. There! I said it. But, now they are all that I want to wear for spring and summer. I am also a big fan of the slouchy ‘nomad’ sandal. It’s like playing dress-up, with your feet. I still love my flip-flops, don’t get me wrong. But, I think it’s time to step out in a different style.
