But back to what I was saying - I'm not a fahsionista, but I do love having a new outfit or two to wear to work. And Spring is around the corner, so it might be time for
And, as luck would have it, our newspaper today had a spread on the hottest Spring fashion trends for this year. Goody! What fun and stylish trend can I per up my wardrobe with this Spring? Let's see. Here are my choices:
|The Peplum Skirt|
Not to mention the obvious problem with an all white outfit on a size 12 woman - it makes us look fat. Think snowman. Unless it's a wedding dress, of course.
|Mesh and Transparent Fabrics|
So, I ask you - Where are the styles that normal sized women can wear???
I have to say though, one fun trend for this Spring and Summer is color blocking. Wearing two or three solids together - one on top, one on bottom, maybe a belt or jacket in a third color. No rules on mixing what colors - anything goes, it seems. Here's some fun examples from Redcarpettips.com:
|Isn't the turqoise and purple just divine?|
|I do loves me some fuschia! It's great paired with black.|
But really, if the average size of women in America is a 14 - yes, that's 14!! Then why are designers still making clothes for only anorexic bodies? And why are these tiny little women the ones modeling all of the latest styles and trends? That's just messed up.
Until the world changes, I guess I'll pick a few trends I like and head on over to Ross or Kohl's and see if I can adapt them to my size 12 body. I've found this is easier to do after a couple margaritas. I'll let you know how it goes.
