>GARANCE DORE RECANTS HER STATEMENT ABOUT PLUS SIZE MODELS BEING UNHEALTHY

>

Hey curvy girls,
Last week I wrote a post about fashion blogger Garance Dore implying that being plus size is unhealthy. Well, due to unfriendly feedback from readers, Garance is recanting her statements about plus size models.

According to Huffington Post Garance says this:

“I never said that plus-size models are unhealthy. That would be totally stupid of me. To me, they represent the diversity of women’s bodies, and what I said is that I will be happy to see them on a runway on a regular basis, just mixed [in with regular models] and not [walking] all together at the same time.

But I also think that if things like V Mag or the Mark Fast show contribute to making people more tolerant and the fashion industry more open to that, then it’s just great and a good sign for the future.
I, myself, am not a model at all, and I have always said that I like my curves. “

I dislike when people try to back track on their statements because it caused controversy. Now she loves her curves and never said that being plus size was unhealthy (Ok!). COME ON! Don’t renege now Garance, you meant what you said. I know you probably talked with some PR people and they told you how to clean up what you said.

Ok guys, I am over this. I just thought you might be interested in hearing how she recanted her statement.

Hey curvy girls,

This weekend was so nice and warm until Saturday night when the rain came tumbling down. I spent my weekend with my BFF in my hometown Brooklyn (all day, everyday). Although we were not doing anything special, I decided to breakout my leopard print jeggings. I have had them for some time now and never had the chance to wear them, so I said screw it, I’ll just wear them strolling around the neighborhood. I wore flats for the stroll, but, I threw on my new favorite budget friendly heels that I got from H&M when I met up with my BFF.

I rocked the jeggings with my white boyfriend blazer I bought from Ann Taylor Loft . I am in love with this blazer and have worn it 3 times already (I’ll share pics later this week). Some of you curvy girls may be afraid of printed pants because you think it may make you look bigger, but, the truth is that sometimes prints especially medium size prints, can actually make you look smaller. So, don’t be afraid to experiment with printed pants.

Hope you like. You’ll be seeing these leopard print pants again.

P.S. My hair looks a little messy because the wind was blowing my hair all over the place.

What I’m Wearing:
Leopard Print Jeggings-FAITH 21
Blazer: Ann Taylor Loft
Bow Top-Old Navy
Shoes-H&M
Bracelet-Alexis Bittar

>SKINNY GIRL FASHION FOR CURVY GIRLS

>

Hey curvy girls,
It’s been about 2 weeks since I last did the Skinny Girl Fashion For Curvy Girls feature. So, today, I have a cute remake for you. Leave it to SJP to take a simple look and punch it up with accessories. What I love about this look is that the accessories don’t necessarily match, but they do go together. She used neutral colors like gray jeans and a white tank as the base of her outfit and chose standout accessories to add her own personal flavor. I am digging the hat, it’s so MAJOR! I thought this was a cute look that any curvy girl could pull off for a breezy spring day.
