>CURVY GIRL NEWS: SAKS FIFTH AVENUE WILL SOON CARRY HIGH END PLUS SIZE CLOTHES

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Word on the street is that luxury high end store Saks Fifth Avenue will be bringing back it’s plus size department in a big way. This Fall/Winter season some of us curvy ladies will be able to finally get our hands on some of the most coveted designer brands like Chanel, YSL (My personal fave), Dolce & Gabbana, and Alexander McQueen. Majority of these lines will be available in the industry plus size standards, which are a size 12 and 14. However, there will be brands that will carry sizes up to or even past an 18, but, we will have to just wait and see.

The insulting part of this, is, that for most items there will only be one of each size. I believe this may call for a few little cat fights. I will definitely become aggressive for a YSL suit in a size 16.
I can just imagine the snarky looks some of the Saks employees will be giving once they see curvy girls raiding the racks.

The plus size clothes will only be available in the NYC store, but, if we keep our fingers crossed maybe they will begin supplying a variety of Saks locations.

>UNEXPECTED REMIX

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When it comes to personal style sometimes our brains are trained to always reach for the same looks. I for one can attest to that. Lately, I have been thinking of new ways to get the most out of my wardrobe. As a serious magazine reader, I have such an admiration for Lucky magazine’s desire to get their readers to think outside their personal style box when it comes to clothes. In the pages of Lucky mag you will see them pair a military jacket with a shift dress or a pencil skirt just to give you new ideas on how to be a little more creative with your wardrobe. One of my personal favorite bloggers Big Beautyful Mess engaged in a challenge where she recreated 30 looks from a feature in Lucky magazine where they take a few pieces and mix and match them to give you a months worth of outfits.

You’ve all seen this ikat print skirt before, remember I wore it with a white blazer. Well, since then I haven’t worn this skirt that much and decided to dust it off. I wanted to give it a totally different look. To think outside my personal style box I remixed the skirt with this utility vest that I scored for only $14.99 at New York & Company. I don’t shop there much unless it’s for accessories or when they’re having their 50% off everything sale, but, this vest was well worth the price. I added a wide width belt to define my waist due to the bulkiness of the vest. Overall, I was pleased with the outcome and vow to think outside the box a little more when it comes to evolving my personal style.

What I’m wearing
Skirt- Loft
Vest- NY&C
Belt- NY&C
Shoes- Kelsi Dagger
Earrings- Forever21

>CRYSTAL RENN EXPLAINS WHY SHE’S LOSING WEIGHT

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

Crystal Renn sits down with the Today show to explain why she looked so thin in those fashion for passion photos and why she has been losing weight. I can’t say that she needs to explain herself to anyone, but, I am glad she did. I get the feeling she may still be struggling with body issues, but, doesn’t that come with the modeling territory? However, she does stand firm on wanting to present a healthy body image. 

What are your thoughts on her explanation?
