one of the things I hate the most is when celebrity stylist and a few t.v. hosts constantly tell plus size curvy girls to wear a-line skirts. It drives me crazy because they make it seem like it’s the only skirt that is flattering for those of us with a little more body than the regular straight size 2’s and 4’s. As a curvy girl with full child bearing hips, I purchase more pencil skirts than anything else (you’ve seen my cobalt blue one). I feel like a pencil skirt shows off my curvy hips in a sexy and chic way. So, if you feel like you can’t wear a pencil skirt because your hips are too big, I am here to tell you that you can. Omit what some magazines and stylist tell you. A pencil skirt on a plus size body is a sexy thing.

If you don’t have one in your closet, here are a few options for you:

1. Faux Leather Pencil Skirt, Torrid $44, sizes 12-24
3. Gray Stripe Block Skirt, Dorothy Perkins, about $40, size 2-18/20
4. Zippered Denim Skirt, Lane Bryant
6. Lace Back Pencil Dress, Shape FX $64, Sizes 14W-24W  My Favorite
7. Zippered Stretch Twill Skirt, Ralph Lauren $95, sizes 14W-22W
2. Sequin Pencil Skirt, Lane Bryant $89.50, sizes14-28
5. Animal Print Pencil Skirt, Liz Claiborne $74.40, sizes 14W-20W

>ZAC POSEN DESIGNING FOR SIZE 16?

>

My ultimate favorite blog to read everyday is nymag’s fashion blog. I mainly like to read because of the funny honest comments other people leave. Today, I was reading and I came across this article that Zac Posen said it was always a dream to dress a size 16. What! Who knew? Well, I am very pleased to hear this because some designers act like anything above a 12 is grotesque. Zac has a new line called Z spoke that recently launched in Saks Fifth Avenue stores. The line is lower priced from about $80-$675.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:
“It’s a dream of my life to be able to make a collection that can work for so many different kinds of women,” he told us. “This is about dressing America.” While his runway pieces run up to a size 12 in stores, Z Spoke, which Saks Fifth Avenue stocks exclusively, includes up to a size 14 for the spring/summer collection, and will expand to include size 16 for fall 2010. Is this a reaction to the emphasis on curves lately? Perhaps. But according to Posen, it’s just a matter of confronting reality. “It means we’re able to really address our planet. And how women are and look, and really make a difference

 My Verdict: Zac can dress me anytime.
