Although I agree wholeheartedly with Bethany, I have to challenge her assertion about plus-size women not having access to trends. So, I asked several other plus size bloggers to participate in a challenge with me. This month, as we await Spring and all the newness that accompanies it, Deb of Real Girl Runway, Vivi of Heart, Print, and Style, the CurvyCeo, Grown and Curvy Woman, and Society of Curves have joined me in this challenge. As bloggers with a focus on the curvy woman, we all have different perspectives in our style. To test Bethany Rutter's notion that curvy bloggers are all original and do not subscribe to a certain "style" we will use our blogs to prove or disprove her theory. So once a week, we will tackle what fashion insiders have declared the new "trends" for Spring 2013. Check here to see my take on the newest trends, but also check them out on their respective blogs! If you want the plus-size world to see your take on these Spring 2013 trends, email your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them for the world to see...
Week 1: BLACK AND WHITE
These are all runways looks that I would absolutely wear. But, I have to say, this does not seem like a trend to me, as I have been a lover of ALL things Black & White my entire life. Below, my interpretation of the huge black and white trend done "my way". And...using items of clothing that are already in my closet, thank you very much.
Cons of this outfit:
first day of my cycle (tmi)
gained 20 lbs
I'm a mother, wife, teacher
Pros of this outfit:
I want to wear whatever the hell I want to wear*
*This pro ALWAYS outweighs ANY cons...
